So I signed my lease yesterday!!! By some miracle I passed the credit check. Yeah!!! I move on November 12th, which gives me just enough time to clean through all my shit. I need to stop holding on to everything sentimental.


I'm Moving!!!

Thursday, October 20, 2005

So as of November 15, I will no longer be an Ashburnite :-( . I found a great apartment last night, and the roommates are really great. It sucks that I have to live with other people, but alas, Northern Virginia is a very expensive place to live. The rent is about $100 more than I'm paying now, but it includes all utilities (which I am footing the bill for right now- usually $200-$300 a month), so hopefully I'll be able to improve my grim financial situation. It will be so nice not having to worry about sending in bills throughout the month!!! The other two roommates are computer geeks like me, so I kind of put my foot in my mouth when I told them that I'm one of those pathetic people who have blogs- apparently all of us computer geeks have them. Oh- and it's a gated luxury apartment community, so no more having to worry about what is happening in my parking lot.
Luckily, this change in my life is also helping to distract me from my current romantic situation- which is only slightly less grim than my financial situation. I think what I really need is a change of scenery to get me out of this funk.


Great Quotes

Tuesday, October 18, 2005

So I've been reading He's Just Not That Into You , and there are some REALLY eye-opening quotes in there, especially since the book was written by a man. Some of my favorites so far:

"If I were into you, you would be the bright spot in my horribly busy day. Which would be a day that I would never be too busy to call you."
"For the record, a man who likes you wants to spend time with you. And he'll only settle for talking to you on the phone five times a day when he physically can't get on a plane to come see you."
"He's just not that into you if he's not calling you. Men know how to use the phone."
"You deserve a fucking phone call."


Thank God the 80's are Over.......

Now this is just depressing......


New Job!!

Thursday, October 13, 2005

So I just started at a new hotel last week, and I'm loving it. My commute is less than half of what it was. I am saving so much on gas.
There are a few drawbacks, though. Most importantly, I have to get used to a whole new group of annoying coworkers. At least I have my own office, or rather, I share it with one other person, but it's cool. So far I've only identified 3 really annoying people:

1. Jane- really old crone who's office is right next to mine. At first introductin, she seems like a sweet old lady- almost grandmother-like. She wears those cheap, ugly, Baltimore-like suits from Newport News catalog, and I think I've even seen her wear a holiday pin. But don't let that grandmotherly exterior fool you. She is a ruthless hag. She back-stabs with the sweetest smile on her face. I swear, even after a week and a half there, every time I pass her office on my way back from the water cooler, I have to fight the urge to toss my bottle of water at her. I am convinced that she will melt.

2. Tommy- the questions guy. Every time I send out a report, within 5 minutes he is in my office asking questions. I want to tell him- "hey asshat, I just started here, you've been here for years- how do you not know what these reports mean??!!!!"

3. Can't think of a creative name for this guy- his name is hard enough to pronounce- the "I have something to add" guy. Every staff meeting ends up being 45 minutes too long because of this guy. He always has something to add. He's a department head, so he thinks he has to say something important on every subject, even if they are discussing dog shit. Just want to tell this guy to shut the eff up!


This is scary

Thanks to Stone's worst album covers for this (couldn't stop laughing):
