IM-ing instead of getting off me arse!


Why is Zac Efron on here? Read on and ye shall find out!

Ah, Thursday. Not quite Friday and certainly not Tuesday.

Last night, I had grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner with my partner in crime.....for eating junkfood that is, Lauren. She's also my new dog Monkey's dog walker. I'll tell you the story of Monkey at a future date. But basically he came into my life in January of this year. It was time. Anyway, Monkey adoooooores Lauren and goes bananas when she shows up at the door. I try to pull my best Cesar Millan to keep him sitting as she enters, but its hopeless. He sees Auntie Lauren as endless fun and who am I to rain on his parade of banana-ness?

Yaaaaawn. Its a slow day. I'm waiting on one graphic for a project, but before that, we are actually waiting for the client to approve the new look that we did for this round of tv spots. I've been bored so I made sure all my time was entered and up to date for billing, as well as shopped for computers and translated a french menu for my birthday dinner. Now I'm sleepy and feeling like I am going to need a Diet Coke to perk me back up. Something.

Just got a Blackberry today. My first. Came via Fedex after a 2 hour conversation with Verizon a few days ago. I wanted one with a camera, but I had to get a "World Phone" for the trip to Paris/Greece. What a waste. I'd keep this damn thing if it had a camera, but it doesn't and you know how you always need a camera while out and about, so upon my return, I am returning it for the Blackberry WITH a camera. Silly, petty crap. Why can't they just make one with a camera and call it a day? Oh, right, thats the Storm. The worthless touch screen phone they came out with. Useless to those of us who have nails! So I'm letting this thing charge up and have to hit the Verizon store this weekend to get someone to transfer all my numbers. In the meantime, I guess I better get all the pics off my old phone. I hate having to go through this every year or so. Although my Razr lasted like 10 mins, or 4 months, take your pick. Talk about worthless. Enough of this.

During lunch Anna* IM'ed me, she's my producer, about the graphics we are waiting on and after a few back and forths, it dissolved into a conversation about my Paris trip. Anna has been there several times and sometimes goes for a weekend just so she can get some good sleep on the 10 hour flight! She's crazy....in a good way. Anyway, we were IM-ing back and forth and she finally typed "would you just come in here!" I was thinking I should get up and walk the 30 feet to her office, but sheesh, talk about lazy!! That's me! Is that what 40 is about? Not wanting to walk to 30 feet so that I would actually have to do less to have a conversation?

I posted yesterday on my Facebook that I am a social retard. And I am. I have interwoven myself into the Facebook/Twitter worlds. Being anti-social WHILE BEING social has never been easier! I'm following the challenge between Ashton Kutcher and CNN to see who will be the first Twitter of the two to get 1 million followers. Right now I think CNN is ahead, but only by 10K and both are in the mid 900,000. So its close. I'm even following Anderson Coopers tweet and as much as I love him, I'm only following Ashton and want him to win over CNN. The good news is, whoever wins is helping out a charity. Ashton is donating $100,000 to Malaria No More for mosquito nets and I have no idea what CNN is doing. But also if Ashton wins, he said he's ding dong ditch Ted Turners house. I'd really like to see that! Hahah! Little things amuse me.

Oh and I loved this a few weeks ago, so I'm repeating it here. OMG@Yahoo posted pics of some fashion disasters and at the end of it was a pic of Zac Efron promoting his new movie "17 Again". He wasn't making the worst dressed list, it was so random and the caption just read: "You're weekly serving of Zac Efron. You're welcome."

So there you go. You're welcome.
