now a grey’s anatomy girl

I always liked Patrick Dempsey when he was young and nerdy, and he has definitely improved with age. Started watching Grey’s anatomy last week, and it is fun. More soap opera than medical drama, but better than what ER has been for years.

Other shows and current TV crushes:
Ali Larter in Heroes

Nathan Fillion in Firefly

Ha! We watched the premiere of this cool new show last night, called Heroes. It is an x-men rip off, but it is interesting. That quote was one of the lines from the show, and I just loved it 🙂

the most reliable alarm clock

I don’t know how she does it, but Myra manages to wake up at the same EXACT time every day…6:53. Granted, this is better than 6 a.m. But still, every day, same time. Wag wag, lick lick. At least she is a friendly, cuddly alarm clock.

I just applied at adidas!!

I have a great feeling about this. The timing is right. It is exactly the job environment I have been putting out into the universe that I want. I really like my cover letter, and it was really easy to show how my skills can relate to an hr position.

Fingers crossed, this would be GREAT. It was listed as the number one best place to work in Portland, according to Portland monthly magazine.

New mantra:

I am ready to find my perfect new job, where the employees like their jobs, enjoy coming to work, where the company supports and encourages their growth, where there is good pay and good benefits, where the work is fun and interesting and challenging, where there is a good culture. I am ready to find my perfect new job.

Or so proclaims the natural multi-purpose cleaner I bought today from Trader Joe’s. I have to say, I really like this cleaning product. I’m not one to normally rave about cleaning stuff, but this stuff made everything look good, all without the nasty chemical smell.

Sometimes I wish I was one of those people who always has a clean house, who cleans up every day, because I really love when the house is spotless. But having Myra means there is always hair on everything, and I just never take the time to vaccuum every day. And after dinner, I just never feel like cleaning up the kitchen, so I wake up in the morning, and the kitchen still looks like a mess, and blah blah blah. But for today, the house looks spotless. Washed everything down, used the floor vaccuum, dry swiffered, wet swiffered, put away all the laundry, scoured the bathroom. And it usually lasts for a day or two, where I clean up all the time, and then…it just goes away.

Oh well.

So, I had planned to go to the Pirate festival with Lisa and Tim this weekend, but Lisa had a friend in town and didn’t know when she could get to the pirate festival. So Tim and I went and planned to meet them there.

It was disappointing, and definitely not worth the $15 admission. There were only three food vendors, an ice cream place, a hot dog place or salvador molly’s, the local restaurant that offers “pirate cuisine.” I was very glad I had lunch before we went over ther.

It was hot, and since it was on the river, it was fairly muggy and very buggy. We’ve had a couple days of rain in the past week, and the ground was soggy. The music was ok at first, but very much geared to kids. There were only a few vendors, and they all had really cheesy stuff. We actually called Lisa and said she shouldn’t bother going, because there wasn’t much to do.

I think part of the problem is that these dress-up festivals are really only fun for people who like to dress up in these kind of costumes (I’m sure there was some crossover from the fairy festival) and believe in these pretend lives. And that’s not me, and I just have to remember that for future festivals. In general, they aren’t as much as we think they will be.

But it got my mind off work, and my general frustration there. After we left, we stopped at a running store, and Tim talked to them about the pain he has in his achilles tendons when he runs. They were great there, they knew exactly what he needed, they had him try a pair on and watched him run, and then knew what he needed to try on for a different pair. They said he might still need custom orthotics but think these will correct his pronation and make it so his feet and tendons don’t hurt. Then we wandered around Rejuvenation Hardware, a great store with tons of cool light fixtures, and bathroom fixtures and such, and it was just fun to think about things we would want in our house.

Then home to watch gilmore girls. So, a decent Saturday. 🙂 Yarr.
