about me

My photo
Denver, Colorado, United States
i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.


new math

1 decemberists show sunday night + 2 drinks + 1 cat-a-tac show tuesday night + 3 drinks+ 1 iron&wine show wednesday night + 3 drinks = 0 sleep + 1/4 tube concealer + 3 venti lattes + 1 nap + 1 dirty house + 4 unfinished homework assignments = 3 awesome new friends to go to shows with


waaaaay busy

yeah. i never guaranteed that i'd post everyday you know!

so i've been kind of going in about 10 different directions lately, all of which are fun, but not necessarily productive. i'm trying to catch up in my classes, but i've actually been well, WORKING at work! so since i can't do my classwork at work anymore, i have to do it on the weeknights. but there's been too many hockey games to watch.. and the weekends aren't much better. between all the good shows lately and the being out of town... well, there's a reason i'm behind.

i was in chicago last weekend with some girlfriends. what a fun city! as some of you know, i was born there, but haven't been back as an adult. loved it! huge, but laid back. met a lot of friendly people, drained my bank account at sephora (why there isn't a store in denver, i will never know), and drank. and drank. and then i drank some more! that's really easy to do when a) you're used to drinking at altitude and b) when the bars stay open until 5am! it was nice to see that i could still hang and haven't gotten TOO old.

other news for me is that i'm actually kind of liking my job right now. probably because my boss is f'ing AMAZING and has been super good at getting me on new projects. having a cool boss makes work SO much better. and in turn, he gets super high quality work out of me, and dare i say, even a little overtime.

so in summary, i haven't blogged cause i've been busy working, drinking, and drooling after hot hockey players*.


*oh please, like i watch hockey for the strategy! i'm all about the hotties and the fights!


only 81 more games to go..

si is a huge hockey nut. his team of choice, of course, is the avs. but he'll watch just about any game that's on. i even caught him watching a repeat of the 1996 stanley cup last winter when he was going through withdrawal.

the only reason we have kept our cable subscription is for the altitude sports network.

i like hockey too. but i prefer going to the games or watching the game at a bar. which is why i was a little put out last night when si dug my avs jersey out of the winter clothes box in the basement, threw it to me while i was trying to have a chat meeting with my marketing group and said "hurry, put this on quick!". as soon as i put it on, the avs scored.

he's convinced that i'm the reason they lost since i went to bed (thus removing the jersey) before the game was over.

it's going to be a long season.


itunes tag

this one is right up my alley - thanks mary!

THE RULES: List five songs that you are currently loving. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artists, and the songs in your blog, then 'tag' six other bloggers/friends to see what they're listening to.

umm.. most of mine are all from the new fray cd. cause i've been listening to it on repeat for like the last 2 weeks. si was noticeably irritated yesterday when i played it for the 87 time.

the fray:
1) how to save a life
2) she is
3) look after you
4) dead wrong

5) fall out boy - sugar we're going down

"beer is proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy"

benjamin franklin

so denver is definitely a beer town. i never doubted that. but i didn't really know how much we like our beer until si and i tried to go to the beer festival and it was SOLD OUT. at $45 a ticket. in the convention center that holds thousands of people.

and it was truely sold out. not fake sold out where you can buy tickets on the street for face value. there were about 150 people milling about out front trying to find tickets.

we gave up after 20 minutes and decided to go to the rapids game instead. i was dissapointed at first, but then remembered that pro soccer players are HOT. so i had fun at the game and we met up with our friends after the festival at the wynkoop*. they were smart enough to buy tickets ahead of time.

*this brewery was founded by our mayor. that's how much of a beer town denver is.
