-This guy was hanging on the wall of the conference room I was in yesterday for work. The room/building had nothing to do with music so I though it quite odd.
Fun fact about Yo-Yo: (who names their kid that, seriously?) Ulysses actually met him back in middle or high school when he played the cello.
-I switched my rest day and speed work day this week so when I got to the hotel, I headed to the gym for 5 miles of intervals. I listen to my iPod while running but these treadmills are the kind with the TV screen in front of you. The only available treadmill when I got there had this image frozen on the screen.
Can you read that? It’s the Spanish channel and the talk show was called “El gordo y la flaca” Translation for those of you who didn’t take Spanish in school, “the fat and the skinny.” 1. What the heck is with Spanish talk shows and their ridiculous names/themes? 2. Anyone else find it ironic that it happened to freeze on“el gordo” while on a treadmill? I’m not going to lie, it took me until mile 2.1 to figure out the screen was frozen. I just kept staring at it thinking, “wow this looks like a boring show.”
-I have a formal dinner reception event to go to the night I get home next week in NYC and I needed to find a cocktail dress for it. Fact: I despise shopping. If I won the lottery tomorrow, a personal shopper would seriously be one of the first splurges I’d make. 6 stores later I ended up with this from Nordstrom.
Meh. That’s how I feel about it. I passed this one up at Macy’s and now I’m second guessing my decision.
Neither were cheap and it really annoys me to feel “ehh” about an expensive dress that I know I’m only going to wear once. The only reason I’m thinking about keeping the black one over the blue one is I already have shoes that will work with it. Opinions? *Update: I went back and returned the black one and bought the one from Macy’s. Forgot I had a 20% off coupon too which made it even better :)
-This was the line outside the Apple store in the mall. Note the cops at the front of the store letting people in like they were bouncers.
I’m just as excited for the iPhone 4S as the next person but standing in a line to get into a jam packed store the day it comes out? Come on people, it’s just a damn phone! Chill out and wait a few days. I have a 2+ year old 3GS and it still works fine. I can’t imagine “needing” the new 4S so bad that I wait in a line with policemen at the store the day it’s released.
-I bought this amount of makeup from Clinique,
yet received this amount of free stuff as my “gift.”
Someone tell me how that works. I guess that goes to show you how overpriced the makeup is to begin with, huh?
-Doubletree warm chocolate chip cookies make spending your Friday and Saturday nights alone in a hotel room slightly more bearable.
I’d still rather be with these two though.
Tell me something random about your weekend.
Did you get the new iPhone? Are you going to?
Should I go back and get the Macy’s dress instead?
