"Don't wake me...

...I plan on sleeping in." I think The Postal Service wrote that song just for me. I love to sleep. Today (Wednesday) was the first day since Friday that I've had to be up early for work. So, all weekend I've enjoyed harmonious sleep. "Sleeping in" to me requires that I sleep past 9:00, but usually when I have the opportunity, I sleep as late as possible. Saturday I slept in til 11, Sunday till noon, and Monday till 1. Notice a trend? :) I love my life. Monday was amazing because I didn't have work (thank you Mr. President) so I stayed in my pajamas all day watching Nip/Tuck season 1, playing on my new ibook, and eating yummy food with Timo. He surprised me with these really pretty earrings that I told him I liked in a magazine a few weeks ago. It's thoughtful things like this that make me like him so much.

For Valentines Day he had me over to his house, and he answered the door dressed up in a shirt and tie, with candles lit all over his apartment. He was cooking dinner, and had the table set, and offered me some wine. It was the cutest thing ever. No one has ever put so much effort into making a sweet Vday for me. Thanks Tim! This weekend should be pretty fun. Sejal is coming from San Jose, and we always have a great time going out with her. Tim also might be having a friend come visit, this time a better one ;) It's Mardi Gras, so we are going downtown to show our boobies...just kidding. Mardi Gras 2003 is when Helya first corrupted me...but that's a good thing because I was a lame-ass prude. Thanks to her I am no longer with Adam (woot!), and I enjoy being social with my friends! She's my hero. So, it's our anniversary, and we are going to break out the vodka and skittles with a side of hookah. Friday will be just what I need after last weekend's debaucle.

My favorite things right now:
  • Starbucks Hazelnut Mochas
  • Tim's down comforter
  • My new earrings
  • Cuddling with Rachel while watching Grey's Anatomy
  • Nip/Tuck
  • my ibook
  • my future wedding dress
  • listening to Tim talk (Crazy!!)
  • sleeping in

Aye Dios Mio!

Above all, mind what you say. "Behold how much wood is kindled by how small a fire, and the tongue is a fire" - that's the truth.

I made the mistake of overeacting to a situation that was really not a big deal. There were some valid reasons for me to be upset, but overall, I turned something simple into a huge, huge, embarrasing, unnecessary battle. I don't think I've ever been a true bitch to someone who I met for the first time before last night. Again, there were plenty of reasons for me to be bitchy, but my personality rarely includes actually becoming a bitch to new people outloud. (I say new people, because my friends all know I definitely know how to be bitchy). Also, I don't think I've ever been in such a crazy, pointless yelling match with a boyfriend. It really sucks, and I really don't like drama. My mom even said tonight, "this is what you were afraid of: relationships with drama." Yuck. I usually try to stay away from drama that stems from jealousy or bitterness, but for some reason, this time I could NOT stop myself for the love of god! I need to learn how to shut my mouth, but even more, I wish there were a way to get my brain cleansed of all the nasty things that were going through my mind the past couple of days. I mean, really, I imagined all sorts of wild things, and the sad part is, I believed they could actually happen. I am psychotic and I think I need to be checked in. Rachel said tonight, "it's worse when you usually aren't the type to flip out about stuff involving boyfriends, so when you do, it's like you can't control yourself, and it just turns into a huge mess!" She is completely right. Hopefully I got it all out of my system, so I never have to go insane again. Hmph. Thank GOD for Saturday. Time for a little romance.

So with this, I leave you with my daily horoscope which was surprisingly dead on.

Hopefully, you've gotten over the urge to lose your cool and do something crazy, because with the kind of conscience you tote around, it would never work: You'd turn yourself in and apologize in three hours or less. No, you may be fiery, but you know when to call it quits, and it's time. Besides, it's the weekend, and it's time to have fun -- which just so happens to be your specialty.

One more all the "visitors" out there, pease don't be rude. Stay with someone else if it feels like you are causing problems...and when you know people have plans the next day, get your ass out of bed, and don't overstay your welcome. Thanks.

I am a Believer

There are really no words to convey my experience seeing the Coldplay concert with Rachel last week, but it was
"amazingextrodinaryincrediblesexysensationalastoundingbreathtaking" ;)

First of all, our seats were FABULOUS. I think my eyes popped out of my head and I had to catch my breath when we found out how close we were. We could see that Chris Martin's black pants weren't the same shade of black as his shirt (shame on him), and we could see the sweat dripping off his face, and we knew the guitarist was married because we could see his wedding ring. Pinch me, because I think I am dreaming!

The entire concert was a big exciting blur, partly because I was pretty much in shock the entire time--I mean come on, COLDPLAY, my favorite band of all time, was 20 feet in front of me--all I could do was sing and scream and jump up and down and dance and squeeze Rachel! But also, we were second hand high, which did not help my memory of what songs had been played. I don't even remember Chris singing my favorite song, A Message. :( Stupid pot smokers.

<3 yellow balls with gold confetti. Enough said.

I DO, however, remember Clocks. Holy shit. Clocks was the most incredible performance I have ever witnessed. I think I had a "concertgasm" (thanks Rach). Chris danced around stage and crawled on the ground, and the lights went crazy, and my heart beat and melted and aaaahhhh I could die happy. Next time you see me, I'll do Chris' crazy dance. Rachel will too.

Okay, so it was the best concert I've ever seen, but WAIT, what about the encore?!?!?! Let me just say, tears almost streamed down my face as Fix You came on. Probably the most beautiful song ever, and I can act out the whole performance, right Tim? (first he sits soulfully at the piano, then...wait for it...wait for it.......then he swings the light!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Tears stream down your face!!!!!!) I have an idea readers! Go to your itunes. Click on "Fix You", and go ahead to about 3 minutes into the song...listen to the music build up, then imagine Chris standing in the middle of a dark stage with a single lantern hanging from the ceiling, and then the song climaxes, and he takes the lantern and throws it out and it swings around in circles and it just captures all the feeling and all the love of his glorious music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, sorry, I just think Coldplay was the most incredible concert ever, and I am a tad psycho about it. Thanks Rachel for the best birthday/graduation/Christmas gift in the whole world, and I couldn't imagine seeing it with anyone else. Coldplay is our new religion.

We are believers.

I'll leave you with my theme song (note picture):

"The Scientist"

Come up to meet you
Tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are

I had to find you

Tell you I need you

Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets

And ask me your questions

Let’s go back to the start

Runnin’ in circles

Comin' up tails

Heads on the science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Aww take me back to the start

I was just guessin’

At numbers and figures

Pullin’ the puzzles apart

Questions of science

Science and progress

Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me

Come back and haunt me

Oh when I rush to the start

Runnin’ in circles

Chasin’ tails
Comin’ back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m goin’ back to the start
