Running with Cigarettes

I'm sitting at home, watching the snow fall heavy outside my window. Should be a fun drive to work this morning.

I think I'm the only person that I know who actually gets excited about the snow. Something about it just makes me feel like a kid again. I want to go outside and run around - make snow angles and forts and giant snowmen. Plus there's something about the way it covers everything up and makes it look clean and fresh and so pretty. I just love it.

I've been meaning to post my New Year's Resolutions - you know, keep myself accountable by writing them down in a public forum - but the truth is, I don't really want to make any this year. I guess I should change that to say that I made some, wrote them all down on a piece of lined yellow paper, and then I tore them all up. It has begun to feel like the same regurgitated crap year after year. And isn't it? Quit smoking, lose 10 pounds, run a marathon. Same crap, different year.

I want 2007 to be different. I've decided that I only have one resolution for this year. I want to make sure that everyone in my life knows how special they are to me. That's it. That's all. Nothing else. I want my friends to know how important they are to me and how each one of them makes my life better in some way. I want my family to know how much love and appreciation I have for everything they do and are.

Oh, and maybe quit smoking, too.

Now I'm off to shovel out my car and head in to the office.
Have a good day everyone. Happy (Snow) Tuesday to you.

Vegas, baby. Vegas.

I can't believe that I haven't posted since Thanksgiving! So much has been going on. I guess when your life gets busy there are certain things which fall to the wayside. For me, apparently that would be blogging. But hey, before you judge me too harshly, I just got back from Vegas! If Las Vegas and blogging were competing in the sumo wrestling competition that is life, Vegas would make blogging scream from mercy and tap out early. I dare you to tell me I'm wrong.

While my girlfriends and I were in Vegas this weekend, The City of Sin, we realized that there was another event going on beyond the normal sex, drugs, and debauchery. That's right, the Porn Awards were in town. The Porn Awards, people. If you think Vegas is great for people watching normally, you should see it when the porn-stars come out. Damn. I felt overdressed the entire time I was there. I probably would have felt overdressed in just my bra and panties.

The whole time I was there I got 3 1/2 hours of sleep, was drunk pretty much the entire time, spent a ton of money, and probably took a few years off my life in the process. It was a great time.
