I’m supposed to be on my way to a Mike & Mike in the Morning book signing right now in downtown Boston, an event I took a vacation day from work for, and instead I’m at home sweating bullets, unable to eat anything and feeling like crap. Yeah, cause that’s fair. 😦

People I canceled dinner on last night, definitely wasn’t lying to you. I think I’m 30 minutes away from saying I’m officially not well. Hope you all had fun, PF Chang’s sure did sound yummy.

“Sun in the sky, you know how I feel.

Breeze drifting on by, you know how I feel.

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me…and I’m feeling good.”

It’s easy to feel more like a girl in a new black pencil skirt and 3 inch blue suede pumps. πŸ™‚ Though listening to Green Day on the way in and now the baseball game from last night is very much diminishing the feeling.

These might be my favorite pair of shoes ever. They are high, very attention-grabbing and insanely comfortable. DSW Clearance section, I love you so very much.

Ok, so I was bad and I didn’t study like I should have for my GMAT test in two weeks. I just rescheduled it for May 15th which gives me 6 weeks. I had to pay a fine but I figure it’s better to do that than to waste the entire registration fee on a test I’m not ready to take. Load off my shoulders but I have to be good this time.

Oh how I annoy myself at times.

Happy Easter everybody! Besides my mandatory listening of Jesus Christ Superstar and watching The Ten Commandments last night on ABC, I have not celebrated this holiday in any way this year. Easter hasn’t been a big deal for me since I stopped coloring eggs. Still, for those of you who do or did celebrate with family and friends, I hope you enjoyed it, ate lots of ham and eggs and enjoyed this beautiful weekend we’ve had.

I’ve been neglecting my poor blog lately. I don’t have much an explanation for it, I just haven’t felt like blogging lately. Even my Lost blog is suffering. Anyhoo, here’s an odds n’ ends post of stuff going on:

  • First thing is a product endorsement. I’ve had some hit and miss with things from Sephora but this stuff is AMAZING! It’s a body lotion from a company called Pacifica and it’s vegan meaning no animal testing or bad ingredients or anything like that. I got the Tahitian Gardenia scent and it’s heavenly, lasts a long time, and makes your skin very soft. Check it out,Β  you can get it at Sephora or Sephora.com for $22 – worth every penny as its also a huge bottle!

  • May I also suggest Clinique Moisture Surge Gel face moisturizer. It’s a gel so it’s not oily at all, doesn’t leave any greasy mess on your face, absorbs lightning fast and is very nice and cooling. It’s a bit pricey but it’s worth it for people with oily skin like mine as it doesn’t lead to breakouts. It’s also pink and has no odor which is nice too. πŸ™‚
  • Almost too warm for early April isn’t it? I was out walking around yesterday in a t-shirt, jeans and sandals and I was burning up. The sunshine sure has felt nice though. I’ve been too afraid to check the weather for the upcoming week cause this has been so nice.
  • Stressful weeks usually end meaning huge shopping sprees for me and this week was no exception. 5 new pairs of shoes (2 of which were clearance) and I can now proudly say I own a pair of blue suede pumps!, 5 new shirts, a beautiful skirt (finally found a pencil skirt that I can wear), and a new towel set. Much of this was thanks to a very overly generous Macy’s gift card I got for my birthday. I spent over two hours in Macy’s yesterday. It was heaven.
  • But yes, this past week was extremely stressful and unfortunately it was due to two things that I cannot talk about on here. My anxiety medication works really well except when I get overly stressed out. Then I find itΒ  very hard to even keep my wits about me. But this too did pass and now it’s all good…I think. πŸ™‚
  • Spent much of my weekend trying to purge my apartment of unnecessary things. I got through clothes, shoes and cd’s and that’s where I stopped. I have a lot of crap is what I’m trying to say. I’m getting rid of three full garbage bags of clothes and shoes and at least 20 CDs. Crazy.
  • I have been 100% removed from what’s going on in the world. I feel bad about that but I can only handle so much at one time. I know that health care bill thingy got signed and that a lot of people are overreacting to it and that there have been multiple bombs and suicide bombings going off overseas. I really need to catch up, I’m being bad.
  • My DVR is 85% full. This is not good. I’m so behind that I’m wondering if it is even worth catching up, especially with Glee coming back soon.
  • There are so many friggin’ shows I want to see in New York!!! I need more money…or I need to stop spending money. My credit cards are going into witness protection this week I think.
  • I’m going to be out of commission for the next two weeks I think so that I can study for the upcoming GMAT test. With the one exception being next Sunday when we all go to Lauren’s bridal shower (yay!), it’s nose to the ground time. Oh joy.
  • I hate it when I want to talk about something on my blog and I can’t because I can’t talk about it at all. Sucks. Please don’t guess cause I won’t respond to it even if you’re wrong. Just know that there’s something I’d like to talk about on here. Maybe that’s why I haven’t been on here recently. Hmm.

On a less confusing subject, the 2010 MLB season starts tonight with the Red Sox vs. Yankees. I’m going to watch the game as these ones are always dramatic and I’ve been awaiting the start of baseball for a long time now. Of course I’m much more excited for the Mets season opener tomorrow at 1:10.

I’ll say it right here and you can quote me: The Mets are winning the NL East and the World Series I’m hoping for is Red Sox v. Mets with the Mets, of course, coming out on top. Hey, a girl can dream. Plus my boss promised to take me to a World Series game if it’s those two against each other (and I’m SO holding him to that!). He’s a huge Red Sox fan. So much fun to share an office with him right now. πŸ™‚
