And I'm not just talking about the weather!

Last night SYTYCD aired its first Hollywood show of Season 7, but the performances were a showcase for the top 11 dancers and the returning "all stars" from previous seasons - no voting yet.

I have but two words to describe it:



Nggghhhh! (That's the sound of me swallowing my tongue and drooling....)

Know who else I was delighted to see? Mark Kanemura, from Season 4. So charismatic, so talented, and so twisted - my eye kept going back to him during that routine. Whoever gets paired with him is going to have to work extra, extra hard to make themselves seen beside that man.

Oooooh! I'm getting chills. Can't wait for next week's show!

One. More. Day.

Ugh. Sooooo didn't want to wake up this morning. Srsly - I've been exhausted, both mentally and physically, and under so much stress that I've been clenching my teeth at night.

I just have to make it through today; my vacation starts at 5 PM! And then I'll have plenty of time to sleep in, sit in coffeehouses with my laptop...and buy a nighttime dental guard.

Four days until vacation.

Four days until it's just me, a lovely coffee shop, and my laptop.

Four days until I can take afternoon naps with my cat.

Four days until I can take myself shoe shopping.

Four days and counting.

(Can ya tell I'm looking forward to this??!)

Friday - At Last!

It's taken me all week to recover from the CF that was last weekend (with my DH on call and having my sleep interrupted every four hours), and I'm *still* tired.

Thank goodness today's Friday. Tomorrow I'm going to sleep in, and when I finally do decide to get up, I'm going to hunker down with my laptop to have some more fun with writing. Yay! And after next week I'll be on vacation - also yay!! And I get to see my lovely BWC chickies, too - another yay!!!

Now all I have to do is get through today....

01 June 2010


DH has been on call all weekend for his job in the medical profession. His place of work called him at least 3 times during each day, and at least once each night, waking us both from sound sleep. After each call, it took me at least 30-45 minutes to get back to sleep.

Consequently, I'm going into what's going to be a heavy (and early) work day more than a little sleep deprived. Add to that the fact that the cat has just yarfed all over the house (three times!!), and I'm cranky, to boot.

Even if Mondays didn't exist, the first day of the work week would still kick our collective asses.
