love & hate

Things I'm loving right now:

1. The weather in Denver – over 60 degrees yesterday!
(last week at this time it was approximately 2.5 degrees)

2. White wine.

3. The razzleberry crunch biscottis at Diedrich Coffee. They taste like berry Cap'n Crunch.

4. Shakira's new song and video – muy caliente! I love the disturbing, twitchy boyfriend at the end!

5. Eating packs and packs of strawberry Twizzlers to keep from smoking again.

6. My unbelievable restraint around lbs. and lbs. and lbs. of cookies, cakes, chocolates, and thousands of other assorted fatty goodies.

7. Anticipation of my upcoming seven days off of work.

8. The intense love it/hate it reaction of gay men to Brokeback Mountain. It's like "Confessions on a Dance Floor" all over again. I was hanging with a straight buddy on Tuesday night and he asked me, "So, are the gay boys all abuzz about Brokeback Mountain?" and I busted out laughing cuz that's the understatement of the year.
I've never heard it said that gay men lack strong opinions….

9. The second season of Arrested Development on DVD – I borrowed it from my friend and now I get to laugh hysterically every single day! And I'm loving that the show may be saved from cancellation!
"I'm a MONSTER!!!" – Buster Bluth

10. The fact that I get to see my sweetie niece in two days!

Things I'm hating right now:

1. The 10:00 p.m. WB airings of Sex and the City – I’m compelled to watch because I'm in love with the show and there's nothing else on at 10:00 p.m., but they've literally cut out at least half of every episode (and not just the naughty parts, but critical story narrative…).

2. How long a workday lasts during the week of xmas – arrrrggggh!

3. Updating an architecture firm's reference list when well over half the contacts for the people on the list have now left the firm and disappeared into the night, never to be heard from again.
Not that I can blame them for that.

4. Desperately trying to come up with something fun and sexy to do on NYE. I've been invited to a couple smaller, laid-back parties, but I'm not ready for that type of quiet NYE yet. I’m only 30 for christ's sake! I wanna get wasted and make out with strangers! Yippee!

5. The fact that I'll be burning four days of paid time off to sit on my butt in freezing S.D. with nothing to do, while I NEVER just take a day off here in Denver to be lazy and where there's a million things I could do.
Oh well. I guess I'll get to catch up on my Days and Y&R and Oprah and gain about ten pounds.

Hmmm…at least I'm loving more things than I hate this week. I'm a downright optimist by god!

Twizzlers are crap.

Compared to American Spirit lights, Twizzlers are crap.

But they fulfill my oral fixation desires quite nicely (and in a low-fat way!) in the absence of other...oral treats, shall we say.
