boring bob

i feel like a bit of a boring bob lately... you know, not much to say, not much going on. of course that will all change next week when my life turns into a crazy madhouse with events almost every night. not that i'm complaining. it's better than being a social hermit.

yesterday i was on plan all day, and managed to get in a 3-mile walk on the treadmill at night. my boyfriend is a teacher, and through his school board i got a discount on magazine subscriptions to "shape" and "fitness" and my first shape issue came in the mail yesterday. love it! i like reading the success stories, as well as the recipes and health tips. i am not that into the exercise routines... they always look so complicated even though they probably aren't. that wouldn't make sense.

when i got home from work last night the fire alarm in my building was going off. it is so loud everywhere: in the underground parking lot, in the stairwells, in the hallways, and in each individual unit. it was so annoying. i decided to escape and go grocery shopping. it was still blaring when i returned. luckily i bought ear plugs at the grocery store which muffled the sound slightly. there is a new "phase 2" condo that went up beside mine and people have just started moving in. i guess one of the units started to flood (water pouring in through the heating vents) and that's why the alarms were going off. i had to walk up 10 flights of stairs to get to my unit, and then down 10 to go to the gym. good exercise? thankfully the elevators were working again when i left the gym.

did anyone watch gossip girl last night? chuck bass was looking really good in his angry state. normally i'm a nate type of girl, but this episode was all about chuck.

i'm listening to a new audiobook: "drop dead beautiful" by jackie collins. i have never read (or listened to) anything by jackie collins before and i am very surprised by how sexually explicit it is. shocked, actually! it's a pretty good story though. lots of juice and drama. last week i finished listening to "little earthquakes" by jennifer weiner. that was my first book by her, as well, and it was alright but nothing special. it was read by the author who was speaking too slowly for me.

i think that is about it. oh, apparently tomorrow there is a 40% sale at banana republic. on everything except one specific line. i am definitely going. normally i don't shop there because of the prices. whee!

Oh ya, Jackie Colins is crazy graphic in her "descriptions". Not my thing.

Oh, BR...hmmmm...maybe I need to go "Christmas" shopping tomorrow.

I feel like a social hermit - especially during the week and when i'm trying to save $. boo on the alarm - that happens too often here at the worst time. Right now they're replacing the stucco - it's been awful! Constant hammering drives the pupper crazy. I LOVED Gossip Girl last night and agree - he looks good drunk/sad! haha I love Nate though - he's just so traditionally good looking!!

Jackie Collins is ALL about the the smut!!!! I think I blushed the first time I read it!!!

I am loving Chuck right now!!! Though i wish he would stop "going back and forth" you know what I mean??? i find they go to one thing and then they go back and then go BACK BACK...

I am all about reading my girl porn (what I call those explicit books), but I think I would find it way weird to have somebody read it outloud! Weird!

Nice work getting in all the exercise, sounds like you'll be too busy next week.
