    Remember my notebook addiction? Well now I've gone and done it. I fell in love with this beautiful leatherbound book that closes with a thin leather strap you wrap around it a few times. And of course the motherfucker is made in Italy, and of course it's $45. For a notebook. GAWD.

    So what's up with you guys?

    I'm enjoying a mini Ritter Sport. They sell them at a little packed lunch place near my work... I definitely bought three the last time I was there, but they're good for a chocolate craving and its only 4 squares, so I'm not eating an entire candy bar.

    I'm waiting for C to pick me and take me to the Apple store. He (accidentally) cracked the screen of my iPad (two months ago) and has graciously (I was waiting on him...) offered (let them think it's their idea) to pay for it. Then we're going out to lunch, and after that I'll come back and put another dent into my defensive driving course.

    C's feeling well enough to have a restaurant lunch? That's exciting!

    Yay for C! Glad he's feeling up to a restaurant lunch. :)

    Oh V and your notebooks. How many notebooks do you have?

    Sorry I've been MIA, finally been apartment hunting :) I'm potentially interested in this place (not sure how long the listing will be up, the owner told me she's going to pull it down) http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/apa/3213058948.html In the same complex there's a bigger townhouse available mid-September so I'm trying to decide if I want to wait or not.

    Can't see it. :sad: I guess it's already down. Good luck with your search! I bet it will feel great once you are finally moved in.

    Yeah I've been living with my parents and it's getting kind of old! They are perfectly nice and are giving me my space but it's super weird to be back in their house. I'm sleeping in my brother's old room which looks the same as it did when he was in high school.

    Sounds exciting android!! I too can't see it.

    And red, I'm glad he's feeling better! I'm sure he was going really stir crazy and is ready to be out and about!

    I worked at the daycare this morning, then I came home and I'm in the process of making a crap ton of meatballs. About 4lbs worth. I'm going to freeze them so we can have them ready for quick dinners since school starts next week :sad: But actually, I think I'm not going to hate this semester quite as much. Since I don't currently have another job lined up, I'm going to have plenty of time to focus on school work so I won't feel stretched too thin. I'm hoping that maybe I can even get involved in some school clubs or something. I tried before, but they never fit in my schedule. I've also got an art class this semester so that should be nice. I'm hoping it's relaxing, not stressful. I've never taken a legit college level art course before, but it's my minor so I need to like it!

    What's the focus of your art class, A&O? Or is it just art in general?

    That's good news about C, red! And good luck with the apartment hunt, droid. Are you looking to buy or rent?

    Omg, so many. It's kind of out of hand. Dozens, at least.

    Just rent! I'm sick of being a homeowner :)

    It's my first semester taking art so I just have general art. I have a general art history course and intro to studio arts that's called basic design, drawing, and color. Next semester I can start taking more specific courses. I just have to get these two pre-reqs out of the way.

    Sounds like you have some good classes lined up A&O! That should be fun!

    Speaking of meatballs, my MIL has made 100 (literally) for our rehearsal dinner. At least if she has invited Uncles Tom, Dick and Harry, she is willing to help feed them!

    Thanks, ladies! He's feeling SO much better. He even said at lunch...get ready...that he wants to take advantage of my moving to NY by coming up there for auditions. So maybe he'll booksomethingandlivewithmeforever.

    I started writing about what's going on with me and then realized it would be better in the Let It Out section than in chat. Here I'll just say that the weather's been beautiful. I got my MT driver's license and so of course the first things I did now that I'm a real resident were get my library card and register to vote. I can happily confirm that the Google review for the library near my house entitled "Most Amazingly Bad Group of Child Molesters I HAVE EVER SEEN IN ONE PLACE!!!" is 100% accurate.

    Also, I feel you on the notebooks. My boss actually gave me one a couple weeks ago. It has a cute pink, white and black design on the cover. She said, "I noticed you like notebooks so I got you this." She does stuff like that a lot, actually. She has pretty good taste for not knowing me very well yet. The few times she's surprised me with a little treat like that it's all been stuff I genuinely liked and appreciated.

    I've got my bitch britches on tonight. Trying to decide if wine will make it better or worse. J gets home in 15 minutes, so I need to decide soon for the sake of my marriage.

    So if I buy this snake print maxi, will I be like ruffles?

    No - unless you pose for stupid pictures and post them on your blog. Then yes.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that EVEN if you posted pictures on your blog, you couldn't come close to being like ruffles. That nutso-ness is unmatchable. :cool:

    If you bought a snake-print maxi, you WOULD have to post photos for us though. I'd need to see that.

    On another note, I just conquered technology. Damn, it is satisfying to have an idea and then make that shit work. (It's also mildy depressing, because you realize you actually haven't done anything but figure out how to use all the shit that someone else thought of before you did and made available for you to use and would probably be laughing at you for being so proud of figuring out which boxes to check, but let's not dwell on that). If I could afford to, I would reward myself with an Italian leatherbound notebook.

    I have such a lack of motivation this week at work! It's nearing the end of summer and it's so beautiful outside! I just want to go out and enjoy the weather. Instead, I am stuck inside at my desk with my eyes getting sore from staring at the computer all day long. :p

    I did buy the snake print one. No idea what I'm going to actually DO with it.

    I'm bored. What's everyone up to today/this weekend?

    Jersey Boys in in town so I am seeing that on Sunday! I love that show. It will be my 5th time seeing it (the other 4 times were in Vegas).
