a whole lot of random

* Work is going okay. Slowly getting in the swing of things but I have an office and I can listen to music so yay! They feed us a breakfast here 3x a week which is nice. LJ/FB/Twitter are blocked though :( I was amused to discover that while afterelton.com is fine, afterellen.com is not. No love for the ladies, IT peeps?

* Blew my first paycheque on a shopping spree and am now proud owner of another Burberry bag and a scarf. When did I become such a Burberry girl? Thank god I'm too big to wear the clothes. I have banned myself from Yorkdale Mall. I knew that store will get me in trouble!

* A contractor is coming by this Sunday to do an estimate for my kitchen & bathroom. The renovation ball has finally started rolling! Gotta take advantage of the renovation tax credit.

* DeRo are finally back together YAAAAAAY!!! Today's ep was just full of happiness and sweetness especially after a month of angst. I love how when one soap kinda drops -- hello, VL? Give Ollian something, anything! And the Knish triangle feels like it's on super slow burn -- another fills the void.

* Today is GLEE day!!!!!!

* Have been drinking way too much pop/soda lately. Must put a stop to that.

* Nuit Blanche this weekend. Anyone doing this? I want to check out the Vanity Fair exhibit at the ROM.

* Kris Allen single, "Live Like You're Dying", me like. A little disappointed it's a cover but whatevs. And finally listened to Adam's cover of "Starlight". Prefer the original but he gets props for bringing Muse to my attention.

* TV round up: HIMYM and Big Bang Theory still rock. Missed the FlashForward pilot -- didn't know it was on til too late -- but yay for finally having something to watch before SPN. Merlin is AWESOME. I love that show so much. The Amazing Race is back with surprise elimination at the starting line (ooo, that's gotta hurt to be eliminated right off the bat) and duck herding in Vietnam! Animal challenges are always the best.

I can't believe I'm this excited over an AI CD LOL! The only AI CD I own is Aiken. Anything about a video? Both boys better come up here for a show!

I download Merlin :) Join merlin_tv, it's open membership and they have links.

I've only heard bad things about "Eastwitch". I love Paul Gross but it's not enough to get me to actually watch the show.

Den and I may be doing some wandering at Nuit Blanche, and I am definitely going to the TRL to learn how to Charleston!

I was thinking about going hardcore this time for Nuit Blanche but Dad decided to book the contractor's appointment early Sunday morning!

TRL? All that's coming to mind is "Total Request Live" and that's not right LOL Learning the Charleston sounds very cool!

Toronto Reference Library, at Yonge & Bloor (slightly north of Bloor on the east side of Yonge.)

The Reference Library! Of course. I haven't been there in... since I was studying for the CA exam... 2003. Wow.

Hey, you work that shopping spree, you deserve it. Although if you take to haunting the Coach shop we may have to do an intervention.

Re: site blockage, we can't use Facebook or Twitter, but LJ is apparently okedokey-fine. This is bad news, for my productivity anyway.

Have been drinking way too much pop/soda lately. Must put a stop to that.

May I recommend Vitamin Water? A bit gimmicky I know, but it really is yummy -- and guilt-free!

I am DONE at least for the year ;) cause really, how many handbags does a girl need?

Funny you should mention Vitamin Water -- I actually bought 2 this morning :)

Hey, you've got a job again! :D (I am so out of it, sorry... :P)

Also: yes, I am SO planning to be at Nuit Blanche!!!

Yep, started about 2 weeks ago. It's a contract position so in 7 months, it's square one again.

Oh yeah? Mind if I tag along for a bit?

Glad you at least have some breathing room to set something else more permanent up, though!

That would be lovely - if I can figure out what I'm doing. *rueful grin* I'm hoping to figure it out tomorrow night or (more likely) Saturday morning. I'll drop you a line...

Glad work is going okay. Even if they are facists for blocking all the cool sites.

What purse did you get? I came *thisclose* to buying a Kate Spade bag while in Tampa. I resisted and went with one from Fossil. But, damn, did I want that Kate Spade.

It's amazing how even without LJ/FB, I am still pretty good at wasting time on the internet :)

I can't find my exact bag on-line but it basically looks like this but without the crossbody strap and with the b&w check. Awww, you should've gotten the Kate Spade! Had to check out the website and look, they even have one named after you!

This was the one I wanted...and still do! WHY does it have to be so expensive???
