Okay....I can talk about it now....

Oy. My reunion. What a night.
The day started off calmly enough.
Pretty much just laid around the house, did some laundry, blah, blah, blah.
Then I got ready for the festivities.
Kelly & Ryan picked me up around 6:15.
Got to the Holidome to set things up. The event started at 8, but a couple of us got there early to set up & stuff. Erica & Andrea came, too. Andrea looks fantastic!!
Of course....I start with the Jack & Diet Coke almost immediately. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?
Maggie + Jack = Oy
So, by the time people started showing up, I was nursing my third drink. And by nursing, I mean gulping, and by third, I mean fourth.....or was it fifth?
So, at this point, I'm pretty loosened up and just making the rounds.
Got to see some people I haven't seen in YEARS - it was quite cool.
Got to see the guy who nicknamed me that HORRID name in elementary school - and even got to tell his wife about it. LOL She wasn't too happy with him!! It was all in good fun.
Got to see my high school crush.....What WAS I THINKING?
I have to say the best thing about the whole night was that I just didn't give a rat's ass.
I walked around and talked to EVERYONE. Whether or not you talked to me in high school, you were talking to me that night - some people never change, though.
I danced my ass off with Bethany, Andrea, Erica & Kelly.
I think I probably smoked a pack of cigarettes with Mike, Max, Chris, Marika, Brian & Erin.
I actually had a rocking good time. I just wish I could remember more of it. :-p
Thank you to Kelly & Ryan for getting me home safely (and making sure I took the right coat).
Woke up the next morning with a WICKED hangover, a cut on my forehead (?), a coors light label stuck to my foot, 2 fun vmails & 1 text from Corey & a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach.
It took two calls & an AIM conversation with Kelly to make me feel better. I also had a minor break down with my Mommy. But, I'm all good now. Promise.
The afternoon of retail therapy with Mom helped, too. :-)
Now, I just have to make it thru the week.......have a feeling its gonna be a long one. Sigh.

Class of '95

Oh my. What a reunion it was.
I'm not going to give all the gory details here.
Its just too embarrassing to relive right now.
I acted like an ass.
I'm not too happy with myself right now.
I want to die.

Say Cheese!

Okay, so I finally sat down at my scanner and scanned in some pics I had.

1. My B-day @ Culture Club (courtesy of Steve & his 3 disposable cameras!)

2. Brother Jimmy's for Tech-UVA Game (basically just pics of the boys taking shots)

3. Demons at T-Bones

4. More Halloween Pics

5. Randomness from last night

So tonight is my reunion. Found out there's a couple people I was looking forward to seeing that aren't going. Losers.
I have to get motivated.
I have to go get a pedi, do laundry and wrap the chocolate favors for tonight and I just have no energy to get my ass off the couch and do any of it.
I just want to veg and play on the 'puter. Sigh...
Last night was fun though. Went shopping with Elena at SuperWalmart and then got some sushi with Elena & Stacy. After a couple of beers with Bobbi Jo @ Bleacher's, Elena & I head over to Friday's to hang out with Roseann, Jack & Dan. It was much fun until I got sick from the Jack Strips. WICKED heart burn. WICKED WICKED heart burn with chest pain and OMG I need to leave now...... I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was exhausted and had a traumatic day since I cut 5 inches off my hair. Holy ef its short.
But anyways, I'm rambling and thats never good for me. Gets me in trouble sometimes.

forgot this little tidbit. WTF?!?!
"Your honor - causing my client to live without her hot iron, Great Lash Mascara in Blackest-Black & Covergirl lip gloss would surely drive her insane!"
Just goes to show you - a little cleavage (& a hospital ID) can get you outta anything!

Happy Turkey Day!

Another Thanksgiving has come & gone...and its almost time for Christmas! YAY!
Went to Doug's for dinner again this year. Corey's in West Virginia with his fam & hunting Bambi. Dinner was good - Katie was there with her boyfriend Joe who is a sweetheart and so good with Kassidy.

Pictures are here.

Tomorrow I'm chopping all my hair off. Yes, my friends - its ALL going. I can't wait. I know my hair isn't long to begin with, but I just can't take it anymore. I am NOT meant to have hair past my shoulders so I'm going with something somewhere between a chin length bob & a pixie. At least this time I won't be insulted & called a member of Oasis (fdb).

After my mini-makeover, I'm heading to Super Wal-Mart with Elena. Yes...I know....I'm effing crazy. Super WalMart on BLACK FRIDAY. Oy...We're going about 4ish, so hopefully the mad rush will be SOMEWHAT over with, but I'm not holding my breath. After shopping, its off for Japanese food & drinks @ Bleachers.

Saturday is my reunion. MY TEN YEAR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. Wow...I feel old.
I'm going stag cuz my man is away but, so is Kelly so its all good. I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to seeing some people I grew up with & some friends I met in high school. Namely: Eric K., Chris, Mike, Brian, Eric B.(grew up with them)
Erica, Andrea, Beth, Jimmy (my hs crush-don't worry ;) he's married!), Mike, Steve (met them in hs or jr. high).

Then, of course, there are the random people I couldn't stand in hs or those who made fun of me for being heavy. Mwahahahahaha.....SUCK IT.

All in all, it should be an interesting time. At least there's an open bar-even if its only for an hour. Doesn't take much to get me smashed, right?

Okay...I'm off to read or sleep or do something. Maybe I should study...........

When Maggie met...

I almost thought it was actually possible for a man & woman to be friends - then I remembered When Harry Met Sally... Its actually making me take a step back and examine my relationships with the few male friends I have (none of which I have ANY desire to have sex with - the thought makes me sick).

Harry: No Man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive, he always wants to have sex with her.

Sally: So you are saying a man CAN be friends with a woman he finds unattractive.

Harry: No, you pretty much want to have sex with them too.

(Thanks to Ordinary Joe for having this dialogue posted on his blog.)

Good advice

Got this from my friend LaTasha:

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you. Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, ".....that's her."

As I wipe the drool from my face...

Thanks to Bethany and Jaime for showing me that Coach's new holiday line is online.
But I'll settle for:
The Holiday Patchwork Duffle
The Ski Pocket Hip Bag
The Madison Napa Watch
Mink Coinpurse (but, don't tell Elena)

Oh there's SO much more.......

Sleepy Maggie Sue

Very sleepy day.
Got outta school early last nite cuz I had my microbio midterm. Not so bad. Was quite happy the essay was on horizontal transfer (since I knew that one) and not the lytic/lysogenic cycles of viral replication (since I don't really know that one). But anyways....
Got home some time after 7 and enjoyed a relaxing evening.
Read The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis in 2 hours. Read it in elementary school and I wanted to re-read it before the movie comes out next month (can't wait). I was able to read it in two hours cuz 1. its a short book and 2. I didn't bother trying to figure out the symbolism like I usually do. There is a book that uncovers the allegories from the book and I may have to buy it and read it. With all this science in my head I'm just too lazy to try and figure out what Aslan represents.
So after that I started jazzing up my profile. Added some pics, changed some fonts, yadda, yadda, yadda. Before I knew it, it was after 12:30 am. Of course, stubborn as I am, I kept at it until after 1 when I finally decided to hit the sack. Only to find that my neighbor has added a TV to his bedroom and apparently likes to watch HBO with the volume WAY up. So I slept on the couch.
So now: I'm tired. I'm cranky. My back hurts. I don't want to be at work, but I don't want to be at my apartment.
Is it friday yet?

BTW....for those of you who haven't discovered it already: I linked up Corey's blog on the right.

Truthfully by Lisa Loeb

This isn't what I like to call flattery,
but I know that I believe that I've found what's true,
that I've found what's you.

Truthfully I , I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you , you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

Surprise, cause I was flying the plane.
Surprise, cause now I'm smiling again.
Surprise, cause you showed up with your parachute.
Surprise, I'm kind of happy you showed up.

Truthfully I , I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you , you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

Truthfully, I really can't explain, I'm floating, I'm smiling again.
Truthfully, I can't ignore you, cause I've been waiting for you.
Truthfully, I'm not desperate, I haven't changed my mind since we first met,
but the last thing that I want to do is to tell you that I'm right for you.

Truthfully I, I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you ,you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

I'm finding finally.
Truthfully, I'm finding out what's you.
I'm smiling again.

What is happening to rock in NY?

First the CBGB threat and now THIS ? WTF?
Seems like just a short time ago, I had commented on the fact that K-Rock had recently changed their format to include more classic rock. Awesome. Now I can hear Pink Floyd and Zeppelin in the same hour as Incubus and Green Day. Finally, a station that understands how my szichophrenic mind works (now, if they'd throw in some Britney, I'd be all good LOL). So, for the past few months, I've been rocking out the the nice new format - loving every second of it - only to find out that they're changing to ALL TALK in January!?!?!?! WTF!?!?!?!?
Howard's leaving, fine (good riddance). David Lee Roth is taking his place, great. Not that I ever listened to them in the morning anyways (I'm an AM girl in AM). But all talk? C'mon guys! Now, with the exception of the mediocre Q104.3, which plays only classic rock, NY has no rock station, whatsoever. I mean, sure I can deal with the classic rock, but NO mainstream rock? Again....WTF? How is it possible in an area as culturally diverse as ours that most of our radio stations only play rap/hip hop or pop? NO mainstream/modern rock and NO country. I can hear Celia Cruz or 50Cent anytime I want - but not Incubus or Alan Jackson.
As much as the thought of PAYING for radio kills me inside, I think I might have to switch to
Sirius based on their abundance of rock channels alone.

I'm a Hallo-winner!

Went to T-Bones on Saturday for their annual Halloween party. BTL was playing, so I decided to invite Corey to check it out. Kelly & Ryan came for a bit. It was a good time. Dressed up as a witch & won first place in the costume contest. :) Yay me! $50!!
Check out the pics here
