Envelopes: White, colored, big, small. I have all kinds.
Post-its: I have every size you can imagine.
File Folders: I am all about keeping and organizing important documents, but this is a little out of hand.
Note Cards: Like 3x5 cards. Like the ones you used to use in school all the time. I am prepared not just for one test, but 3 or 4 SAT's.

We played around on the beach...

So the housewives of New York City have entered into my home through my DVR. I am not sure I love it, but of course I am going to watch every episode (probably a couple of times). Of course I miss the familiarity of all the Orange County locations.
I am sure the OC Housewives weren't that nice, but at least they tried to hide it. What is with these NY Housewives...they are so caddy and mean to each other.
Let's evaluate them (starting from the left in the photo above).
Ramona: You are mean and feisty and you are not very nice to your husband. Also, if you raised kid to be conservative don't be mad at her when she doesn't like your slutty outfit.
Jill: She seems nice. She has a great sense of humor.
LuAnn: My favorite! She is a Countess. She seems the most down to earth, everyone really wants to be her friend, and wants her at their events. AND she calls her husband The Count. How great is that?
Bethenny: Are you a housewife? You don't have a husband or kids. I am confused.
Alex: Seriously? Your that in love with your husband that much? I mean I really love my husband, but you two are weird. Also...newsflash your husband is French - you are not.
I am more interested in the kids of the Housewives because it is like real life Gossip Girls. Bravo you have fan in Ryanne Witt.

The truth is just thinking about the laundry I do every Monday can sometimes overwhelm me. I am not a fan of vacuuming, dusting, or sweeping. My best friend is a Clorox Bleach Wipe. The thing is, unless I am naive, I don't think people are disgusted by my house. I think I do a pretty good job of pretending that it is clean. And even though there is dirt in my house there is also a lot of other things. There is love. There is full refrigerator. There is entertainment. There is a place to sleep for anyone who needs a place to stay. There is always an open door to visitors. The best part of my house being kind of dirty is that I am always ok when people come over...announced or unannounced. I don't feel like I have anything to hide or like they are expecting something different or even like I need to pick up before they get here. You just need to know that what you see is what you get, and if there are dishes in the sink...well...it has just been one of those weeks.

1. No matter the day or the time of day there are always so many people there. It is like they are giving away free stuff, but no one wants to tell me about it.
2. They are ALWAYS restocking shelves when I am in there. I mean ALWAYS. So the aisles are hard to get down. AND they are always out of the things I need...so annoying.
3. It is really hot. Even when it is raining outside it is so hot in there, it is like there is no ventilation.
4. People write checks there. Welcome to the 21st Century. That thing in your wallet is called a debit card, and it does the same thing as a check, except with out the use of a pen. Also, if you use the excuse that you would rather keep track in your checkbook so you can balance it...let me introduce you to a little thing called Online Banking. And why we are at it let me say this. You know you have a cell phone. You know that you carry it everywhere - it is not a car phone...those stay in your cars. So therefore in a movie or meeting please turn your ringer off.

Here are the ones that I have heard of that are supposed to be pretty good. Of course most of them are in the LA area, but they might be worth the drive:
Melrose Trading Post
Sundays: 9am to 5pm
Pasadena City College Flea Market
1st Sunday of the month - 8am to 3pm
Rose Bowl Flea Market
2nd Sunday of the month - 9am to 3pm
(This one is huge...it has 2500 vendors)
Long Beach Antique Market
3rd Sunday of the month - 6:30am to 3 pm
Santa Monica Outdoor Antique & Collectible Market
4th Sunday of the month - 8:30 am to 3pm
Also, secretly I dream about working at Paul Frank or Google...I have no idea what I would do at either company, but I am sure they would benefit from having me there.
The reason they are doing that is because they are now going to be licensed merchandise. Which means potentially they will be a sell out company to bigger stores and easier to get. I can't decide if that is good news or bad news. Bad news...some of the charm of Paul Frank is not everyone knows what it is. Good news...I won't have to worry about dropping food on my $30 t-shirts anymore.

FYI: I have one lunch towards the Hurley bag...but I am planning on putting a big "X" over three more numbers by the end of this week!

Some call her Courtney.
I call her Nils.
You can call her Nils too.
Today she drove by me in a dark parking lot with lots of people and cars today. I yelled.
She stopped, and stuck her head out the window and said, "Nils?"
I LOVE that she heard me!
It was delicious. I had a rueben (I LOVE sauerkraut) and Jonathan had a pulled pork sandwich. It was delicious and we will definetly be going back, even if the mini road trip is just for that reason. We also left with some other delicious treats...it was the perfect ending to the weekend off.

Since we had planned on being gone for the rest of the day we headed over to the mall to walk around and see a movie. It was so nice to have nothing to do, and make up our own agenda as we went along.
I love my job...but I also love weekends off.
