About A Boy

Today was one of those days that doesn't happen very often. I actually had a pretty good day. So as usual when this happens, I don't have much to say, as when I am in a good mood, I can't think of anything to write.

However, I will tell you about my Hugh Grant encounter today. I had a meeting with a prospective new account today. So I meet him, and we go to Starfucks for some coffee, and I am sitting there talking to him thinking, ok I know this guy, or I have seen him somewhere before...Duh....He looks just like Hugh Grant minus the accent. I am such a retard sometimes. Anyway the meeting went well, and turns out he is actually someone who has "serious" connections in this business, and wanted to know what my background was, as he said I was very informative and had such good business sense.. I told I have been in this industry for 16 + years and that in the next few years I plan to have my own business.. So we get talking about all the contacts he knows, and if I am "serious" about it, he could totally help me out. So yet, another contact falls in my lap regarding my career move. So the universe is definitely sending me these people for a reason. And re: my last blog, if I stay in my current job for much longer than needed, I will get kicked again by corporate America. No thanks, been there done that, I'm getting off the Corporate America ride of death thank you very much.

Oh yes, and on my way to my next appointment, I got a call from an account that I thought wasn't interested, and turns out they want to open one asap!! And the account that I went to next is opening a new location by the end of the month, and gee, could they open another one please.....

Like I said, these good days don't happen that often...Oh and by the way...I didn't see or speak to my boss all day today...Could it get any better? Maybe I should go out and get a Lotto ticket or something......

Awesome! I heard if you ask the universe what you want, you shall receive. I rarely pay attention to things to notice if it's actually worked for me.

I would just like to say that I exfoliated my
face with a Brillo pad-like quasi-Buff Puff of
Doom last night and now have little bumps all
over it. And I still have blackheads. GROSS!

Congrats on O Happy Day.
Any day with boss gone is O Happy Day...
mine is here and begrudging me an ink cartridge.
They always get El Cheapo at year end. The driver
said they once laid him off for 2 weeks to be
under budget...grrr. They should cut the top guy's
salary, not us peons' expenses.

Hey, I'm glad you had an awesome day! I have been working in the SF office, so very busy and productive but working on a very mind-numbing project. How the fuck that office have run a business for so long is beyond me.

We should probably look at booking our tickets soon for our AZ weekend. America West seems to have good weekend deals. The last time I checked I think it was $118 rt.

I love good days! Even in my never-ending gloom, I have those occasional awesome days. I'm glad that everything is working out in your favor. You deserve it!

So I didn't think about asking the universe for a little help, but thanks for the idea!

Pisser- don't go using those scary buff puff crap things!! All they do is rip your skin apart (as you noticed)!! If you want to exfoliate use a mask exfoliator, that way you are not rubbing your skin off!!

Killy- thanks for the site link...you know the Marilyn Manson show is coming up, and I may need some new groovy items!!

Liz- yes, we do need to look into our flights to go visit Mangey!! Yeah homemade Pizza Yeah!!
