Long time no see.
Yesterday morning I was running errands before work and one of them was a stop at the bank. The line REDiculously long so I went next door to use the atm. Mind you there are two atms and one speedi-teller station and one woman in this room. I walk in and the woman says “Excuse me” as she picks up her stuff and moves to the atm to make her transaction. “Oh, no problem” I say and start filling out an envelope for my deposit. I hear her mumble but just figured she was talking to herself and continue on. She finishes up and says something-something “RUDE!” as she walked out the door. And then it occurred to me: when I said “No problem” she said “Well I think it is” in response. The “excuse me” she mumbled when I walked in must have been a “get the fuck out” excuse me. Not “excuse me for taking up the entire counter.” oops…
It turns out the door has a lock for people who want to make their atm/speedi-tell transactions alone. The door obviously wasn’t locked. And the woman was wearing huge sunglasses. You know, those glasses that are styled to look way to big for your face? So there was no reading facial expressions and no reading the tone of her voice because of the mumbling. WTF?! I totally felt like a guy at that moment. 😛
awww… it’s Pat and I at Chuck’s wedding. 🙂
Beautifully done. Congrats to both.
Since I was sick today (i really haven’t been feeling well the past couple of days) I took the time to curl up on the couch with a blanket and read Joss Whedon’s “Fray” start to finish. Wonderful comic. I really enjoyed the story, the dialog, and the artwork. Thank you jer and/or ger for suggesting it. 🙂
It’s so nice to see the Batman movies made well. Nick and I just got back from seeing The Dark Knight and I loved it! I’m falling in love with Batman all over again. Christian Bale is an excellent Batman and Heath Ledger is amazing as Joker. The Joker was always my favorite Batman villian because of his simple and complete insanity.
So the woman who I was doing those cross stitch projects for has asked if I could do 4 more. I told her sure $250 each. She said ok! I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do cross stitch. She told a friend about me while showing off my work and now her friend is interested in hiring me for a project.
I kinda like the idea of getting paid to do a hobby. So long as it doesn’t turn into a 40hr a week job. Then it wouldn’t be as enjoyable. 🙂
Went to see my childhood friend, Kelly, last weekend. She moved to DC to attend Georgetown. She finished her thesis and defended it almost 6 months ago: “Spatial Regulation of Chromosomal Replication in a Bacterial Model System.” Tumor biology is her thing. In March she started working for the Navy and is really enjoying it.
It was so nice to see her. It’s been too long. She was a great hostess. Her graduation was on Friday and that took the whole day and evening. We had a nice dinner on the river front and then went our separate ways. We went to see a few monuments on Saturday after we went to the Eastern Market. Nick and I then crashed at the hotel for a couple of hours and then watched ATHF till 1am. Our legs and feet were so sore with all the walking. Sunday we took our time getting ready and checking out of the hotel. Had a nice breakfast and then went to coffee with Kelly and Nick’s friend. He also had a graduation ceremony this weekend. After coffee we went to the Pentagon Mall and wandered for an hour or so. By then we had to catch our flight home.
I was sad to leave. I miss her so much.
