Busy busy busy. I met with three clients today (supposed to be four, but #3 no-showed), and I'm meeting four more tomorrow. I get Friday and Monday off, but I'm pretty sure I'll need to visit both jails on Monday and then prepare for a suppression hearing or two after that. Thank goodness for this long weekend. It's been since Thanksgiving that I've seen my ginger, and we have big New Year's Eve plans - staying at this fancee hotel and going to Gruene Hall for a show.

In a not-at-all related note, at least two people asked me if I'd gotten engaged over Christmas. This is ridiculous.

Zach shaved his head for charity this weekend (and raised nearly $500!). I practiced my nonsense interviewing skills.

Okay, this is maybe hypocritical of me, because we joke about weddings all the time (especially after seeing Bridesmaids yesterday afternoon), but people asking constantly if we're engaged yet is really annoying. Like, we were at the tailgate and a Twitter friend of ours asked to see my hand first thing. And then asked for an invitation. (Zach said, "you're invited, but we don't know when" or something like that, which is nice, but god, people, give it a rest!) And that's not even counting the other friend who asked Alexi Lalas on Twitter if he would officiate our wedding.

It's dumb, but I feel sort of guilty every time something like that happens. I don't know why, because it's certainly not something I'm prompting people to do or anything. It's not even been a year, and things are so up in the air right now. We're not ready, no matter how much we joke about having laser shows at the wedding or me wearing a Big Fat Gypsy Wedding dress. I'm glad we can joke about those things, but neither of us need the pressure. Ugh, people.

(Also, yes, I saw Bridesmaids again. With Zach and excellent beer. And then last night we watched Who, Game of Thrones, and went out for Sonic at 10:00 pm. What a good day.)

Thanks for the prayers, thoughts, wishes, etc. everyone! I talked to Mom and Dad today, and either I misunderstood or Dad was confused when we talked yesterday, because the problem wasn't in her stomach, but in the pancreas. Basically, a side effect of the testing that Mom had on Thursday is that sometimes the pancreas gets inflamed and develops pancreatitis, and that's what happened here. She's still not getting to eat anything, but she's feeling better and hopefully going home soon (like Tuesday). It's scary, and I had a little breakdown last night on the phone to Zach, but that's what boyfriends are for.

Speaking of. I am really tired of Twitter asking when we're getting married. Like this, but that's just the most recent example. Like. Yes, we love each other, but it's not even been a year yet and we're long-distance, and we're just not ready yet. Zach's handling it well (and yes, I noticed that "yet"), but my god. It'll happen when it's supposed to, which is not now. Dudes need to chill.

So. I just now figured out that I get an HD On Demand channel. I've been watching Game of Thrones previews for half an hour now. I wish I could justify the cost of HBO to myself, but that's why torrents exist. I should probably reread, but I don't think I have time, and I'm kind of enjoying seeing how long I can go without reading any male authors. So far, so good, at least in 2011.

Work is still going well. Apparently the grant application for expanding our office isn't due until sometime in April, and then I have no idea of when we would hear or not. Or if I'd even be allowed to transfer to San Antonio-ish, but hopefully that'll all work out. This whole long-distance thing basically sucks - like, I had a little crying fit Saturday afternoon (right before we went to the game, great timing!) about it. I mean, the time we get to have together is so good, but it's always temporary. We'll figure it out, I guess. Or break up.

So, last week was probably the busiest I've been since I started this job. Court all day Tuesday, all morning Thursday, and then a training in Austin Friday. At least the training gave me a chance to see Aaron and Dannielle - SXSW meant that hotel rooms were either unavailable or more than I wanted to pay (especially since I was still living off a credit card then), so I crashed at their apartment Thursday and Friday nights. I think I could live in Austin, but it's a little too hipster and self-conscious for me. Like, I admit I have hipster tendencies, but I'm not that bad.

Anyway, this week should not be as bad! And Duke got a (somewhat undeserved) #1 seed and the MLS season starts this week, so I am happy on the sports front, at least.

Other things (I should be in bed already, but I want to update, so, a list):

1. Aaron friend-requested Zach on Facebook. I find this a little odd, since they've not met or spoken. Oh well.

2. Zach and I split the cost of an MLS-games-only season ticket for the Dynamo. Since we both got press credentials, it looks like, we should have a spare ticket to offer at tailgates. And it gives us some kind of priority for tickets in the new stadium in 2012, so yay!

3. How am I not freaked out by planning things for 2012, but scared to death of the family-meeting thing?

4. Talked a little bit with my boss at lunch - now it looks like we'll not be shutting down, but applying for a different, 10-year grant, and using that to expand to a few other counties. Including a couple that are within commuting distance of San Antonio. Fingers crossed that happens, and I can transfer. I really like the work of this job, but just not where I'm living to do it.

5. Curse you, time change.

Also, for those of you who don't follow me on Tumblr, here's Mike Chabala and Zach at the Dynamo Meet the Team thing on Saturday:

I did the Blingee-work myself! I will never get tired of mocking their bromance.

So, today I got ANOTHER flower delivery. Apparently ProFlowers gave Zach a free upgrade and then didn't cancel the original order, so I got a mini-version of the bouquet I got on Friday. Same card and everything, and they didn't double-charge Zach or anything. Valentine's is MAGIC.
commieprincess: (Default)
Zach should never be a spy. (Context: I told him I wanted flowers for Valentine's Day, because sometimes I am a cliché. But I've never gotten them, so. And we haven't talked about it for like a week.)

And then we both had a snow day and were on Gchat )

Luckily I find this complete lack of spy skill adorable. Also, eeee, flowers!
