*The Temple was pretty good today…er, I mean it was “fantastic”. (My niece always worries when I say ’good’ instead of “fantastic”.) I’m glad she notices the difference, it makes me appreciate the opportunity to spend my day at the Temple. It'll be closed for the next two weeks...HELLO 2 FREE WEEKENDS!!
*I went out to lunch with Eidde on Friday. Filippi’s, in the Little Italy district, has THE BEST Antipasto salad! OH my gosh, SUPER GOOD. So far, I’ve gotta say that I really liked the pizza there. I was hesitant to try it since I MISS my beloved Pie Pizzeria…which ironically, I happened to be wearing my Pie hoodie yesterday. Nothing even compares to the greatness of the Pie. I’m thinking I need a Utah roadtrip here soon. I need some Pie Pizzeria & Saratoga Hot Springs in my system, ASAP!
*Chinese New Year is on Monday. I’m so dang excited!! It’s one of my FAVORITE holidays!! (It’s right up there with 4th of July). I can’t wait to wear red, pass out red envelopes & oranges and eat Chinese food with chop-sticks!! I love Chinese New Years, it reminds me of my dear Tutu (grandmother). Yep, I’m actually Chinese...who would have thunk it?

I'm in one of those funky moods tonight. I'm just annoyed by everything and quite possibly, anything!!
I'm annoyed because I can't find my DANG gym pass and here I am STILL paying freakin' $41.25 a month!!! ARE YOU KIDDIN ME?! Stupid 24 Hour Fitness! I'm mad because EVERYONE and their dog seems to be paying $20 a month with them!! GRR!!!
I can't look at my friend's girlfriend's picture because her eyebrows are about a millimeter thick. Who plucks them that thin??? Excuse me, Marlene Dietrich called-she wants her eyebrows back. GAH!! Why is this even bothering me?!
I'm annoyed because Saturday didn't work out, Mr.NY is acting weird and work has been crazy/busy. I didn't even get to see Pythagoras at the Temple. Wow, Saturday blew chunks!
I'm annoyed because I can't find my books, "The Longest Trip Home" or "Twilight" and I really wanted to read tonight.
Another chick from my ward is now engaged. Really, REALLY?? The dude JUST got divorced and now he's already getting remarried?? AAAAHHHHHH!!! I don't care about getting engaged, I just want to go on a dang date!! UGH!!
But I guess the reason why I'm so annoyed is because I've felt so dang bloated all day and man, sometimes it is NOT fun being a woman. So many crazy hormones swimming around in our bodies. Crazy, crazy, crazy....

Did that really happen??
((It's gonna be a loooooooooooong one. Sorry, I don't edit details so well))
This morning when I got to work I went over to talk to Mr.NY about the airplane miracle that happened yesterday in New York. We talked for a few minutes and then I returned back to my office. Gosh, I love his eyes!!
Then I had the idea to invite him to Mamacita's lil boy's birthday fiesta tomorrow. Her family cooks AMAZINGLY fantastic Mexican food. Plus, they're so warm and welcoming, you can't help but have a great time at their house. I figured he should experience that, ya know. All day, I kept looking over at his desk trying to spot a good time to catch him. CRAZY CRAZY FRIDAY!!!
It was going on 5:00pm and I started to give up hope. I asked Mamacita if she could just invite him, but she didn't do it. It was closing in on 5:30 and I needed to walk some documents over to the desk next to him. Luckily by then, the two "Ghetto girls" had clocked out and left. As I was placing the docs on their desks, I turned to Mr.NY and asked him his plans for the weekend. Surprisingly he turned to face me (usually he's too busy to turn away from his computer) and rattled off a whole list of things to do. My heart started to sink. Of course he wouldn't be able to go....with all of his ol' college buddies in town and his usual Friday/Saturday rituals, he'd never have time to go. He in turn asked me what I was doing this weekend. I told him I had some 'church stuff' going on. He didn't quite accept my 'church stuff' answer at face value and questioned it. So I asked if he was familiar with I-5 North in La Jolla and the "big white...."
He cut me off, "The Mormon Tabernacle?! You're Mormon?? What?!"
"...temple. Yep, I'm Mormon"
He was blown away! He was shocked and speechless. Thankfully, by his smile, he wasn't turned away by it. (THANK GOODNESS!!!) "I would have never guessed that you were Mormon!!" (That kinda shocked me. I'm not too sure what he envisioned a "Mormon" to look like?) So then I let him in on the reason of what really took me out to New Jersey. I think it was all hitting him like a ton of bricks, because when I told him that I was a 'Mormon Missionary' out in Jersey, he started rubbing his face. The poor guy looked tired, so this was probably a lot to take in all at once. So he wouldn't die from shock, I tried to get back to the point...I told him about Mamacita's party and that he should definitely check it out! I told him of the amazing food, how much fun it would be and if he needed a ride I could pick him up after the temple since it's on the way.
He was pretty stoked for it and totally wanted to check it out and asked me for my number. YES, YES HE DID!! I was beside myself!! Was Mr.NY really getting my digits?!?! So I gave it to him and he took it one step further, he called and left a voicemail so that I would definitely have his number. He told me to call him beforehand to remind him because he was afraid he would forget.
So that, ladies and gentlemen, was my Friday Fave 5 wrapped up into 1. Just when I was ready to throw in the towel, I stepped up and talked to him. I couldn't let that opportunity pass. I would forever kick myself if I did. Wow, I need to get a new outfit or something. I can't believe that in 24 hours I will be hangin' out with Mr.NY and eating some really good Mexican food.

Last night, my sister-in-law said that to me. I wasn't tired at all...but man, had she waited 24 hours to say that, she would have been right on the money. I feel like my eyes are super droopy. I'm glad I haven't really had to drive today. Luckily, due to the demand of my job, I don't have a free second during the day to be tired. I like that part of my job. Fortunately/Unfortunately, I've got Volleyball tonight. I hope I survive.
Yesterday I had something important that I needed help understanding. I couldn't quite ask Turtle and Mamacita, so I figured I'd ask Mr.NY. I'm grateful that he's very trustworthy and ALWAYS so willing to help me out. Plus, HELLO! Any chance I get to gaze into his blue/hazel eyes is GRRREAT!! *sigh* I totally like his skin complexion. His cheeks look and feel so soft. Wow.
But then again...I can't wait til Saturday. I love Temple days, Pythagoras is so cute!
Alrighty...gotta go eat dinner and then off to Volleyball.

*I got to talk to one of my best friends tonight. She's 4.5 months pregnant with her first baby. I couldn't be any happier for her. Tonight's phone call was like the cherry on a sundae! Awesome!
*I went to the Military/Navy Commissary tonight. I've always wanted to see what it was. I heard it was a grocery store, but to actually see it was neat! Most of my friend's Dads were in the Navy so the Commissary was brought up a lot, growing up. It was a lot cheaper than regular super markets. Got to see some Military personnel in their uniforms. I don't know what it is, but a man in a uniform is quite a lovely sight!
*Steph and I talked about how awkward it is when someone's shy. I know what that's like. I know that when I become extremely introverted or shy, I tend to be a lil awkward. It's not easy being shy. Sometimes I wish I wasn't too shy in new situations. It usually depends on who I'm with. If I'm with friends that are quiet, then I'll usually step up and break out of my shell. If I'm with friends that aren't in the least bit quiet or shy, then I'll usually step back a bit and be a little introverted. Odd, I know.
*The weather's been B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L lately!! My gosh, it feels like Summer's right around the corner. I can't wait til Summer!! Baseball season! I get to watch my boys, the Padres! The beach! BBQ's! 4th of July! I LOOOOOOVE SUMMER!

I got to work A LOT earlier than expected.....
..and Mr.NY was late (a rarity!)
I had lunch with one of my old best friends today. I don't get to see Eidde much these days, but I do treasure the times we get to hang out. We grew up together (along with our friend Liz) but he no longer lives near Liz and I. I had this weird feeling after lunch. It wasn't a good feeling, or maybe it's just lingering feelings from news I received about another friend last night. I hugged Eidde tight when lunch was over. I was afraid, for some reason, that we wouldn't be seeing each other for a long time. I hope this awful feeling passes.
Well to end on a lighter note...I'm looking forward to Valentine's Day. No, I don't have any plans (Gosh, I so totally wish!) but I've got a cute new outfit! Dang, it's on a Saturday too. I totally want to do something! Hmm...we'll see. Ok, g'nite!

I doubt that was the case from last night's blog. I think a certain guy may now know that I dig him. EEK! Great, just grrreat.... Oh well.

When I got home tonight, I dropped Pythagoras a line on Facebook...thanking him for helping me out with something at the Temple. He didn't exactly respond, but he did request my friendship. Well, at least he knows I exist now. ,
I'm tired and I still have to go over my Gospel Principle lesson.
I've gotta go put some hours in at the office tomorrow night. Work's been backed up and it's obvious when you take a look at my desk. I'll have the WHOOOOOOOOLE office, pretty much the whole building, to myself. I'm a lil nervous since I'll be all alone. AAAHHHHHHH!! Now if only Mr. NY happened to show up tomorrow night...then, that'd be FREAKIN' SWEET!! I think I'd be on Cloud #9 if he came into the office tomorrow. Heck, he's always there, so I wouldn't really nix that thought. Gosh, he's beautiful.
Has anyone watched, "Cities of the Underworld"? Seriously, good television!! It's on the History Channel...ok, before you skip over this because I mentioned "History", you've gotta check this out at least once. I'm not the biggest history buff, but it's insane! The places Don ends up is crazy! Plus you learn so much about different places around the world. (The Las Vegas episode was the best, so far!) "Cities of the Underworld" does for History, what "School House Rock" did for learning...takes it to a whole 'nother level.
2:06am. I think it's time to hit the sack. Oh, have I mentioned how it's practically Spring here in San Diego?? Apparently Wal*Mart doesn't sell gloves or scarves anymore. It was about high 60's today....while thru the weekend it'll be mid-high 70's. Wow! CRAZY! Tomorrow, my family wants to go to the beach. THE BEACH, IN JANUARY?! Who would have ever guessed???

Tomorrow morning, I'm going to go get adjusted (Chiropractor) before work. I can't wait! I've had a kink in my neck and my whole right side has just been "off". I love having a Chiropractor as a friend :) .
I actually can't wait to get to work because I bought 2 Whoopee cushions to put underneath the pillow on Mamacita's office chair. OH MAN! I can't wait!!
Today was pretty uneventful. Work was okay. I was finally able to clear my desk and close out the last month of paper work. I don't think I've ever mentioned what my job really entails. I work for an attorney service, in the dispatch department over our couriers. Basically, I take the orders placed by law firms (via phone, fax, internet or email orders) and set it up for our dispatch to send our couriers/drivers out with. Orders can be to file documents at court, pick-ups or deliveries to ANYWHERE with just about anything and/or serving subpoenas. I also have to enter all the drivers logs into our system, giving up to date statuses on orders...as well as mailing out 'proofs of services' or 'conformed copies' from any filings that we do. It doesn't sound like a lot, but it definitely is. On a typical day, we can average about 50 internet orders [lately it's been about 150], 60-65 phone orders and about 25-30 drivers logs (with about 25 entries each!) .....all the while of answering the phone and giving info/statuses. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Why do I like this job again?!?! The day goes by so quickly. It amazes me how time just flies by!! I like my job because it's so fast paced! CRAZY!! Extremely different from doing massage therapy. Sometimes I miss doing massage therapy because it is such a relaxed and uplifting field. Oh well, it's nice to change it up every once in a while.

Hmm, nothing else is really on my mind. I thought I had more...but I guess not. G'nite!

I went out with Adrian last night. Oh man, I had SOOOOO much fun!! I forget how much I actually love hangin' out with him til we're actually together. He's seriously so funny. He reminds me a lot of my older brother, Wayne. As for the "date/hang out" dilemma--I'd say it was right in the middle. I like Adrian, BUT...(I'm not heartless, I promise!) he's a lil too short for me. I still had a FUN time with him. We ate at California Pizza Kitchen (I'm convinced that the only good thing there is the Red Velvet Cake. The Thai Linguini w/ Chicken had more peanuts than chicken.) We went to watch "Seven Pounds"---GREAT movie. Pretty trippy, if you ask me. Afterwards we hung out and talked til almost 2am. And when I mean talk, that's EXACTLY what we did....it's not code for something else. We both lost track of the time. I know that anytime I hang out with Adrian, my cheeks will hurt from so much laughing.
Church was good today. I bore my testimony. I feel like I've been humbled this weekend and I'm deeply grateful for it. I spent 8 hours at church today....no Sunday nap today :( Well okay, that's about it.
