At the rooftop bar at the Standard Hotel...

This weekend John and I celebrated his 27th birthday (which is actually Monday...) by getting a room at the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles - just the two of us. We ate at the Daily Grill across the street, and then headed up to the kick ass rooftop bar for some yummy drinks and a sweet view. And that was only the first phase of John's Birthday fun!

I finally learned how to crochet in rounds and finished my first hat! Too bad it won't be cold enough to wear it for months!

One Week Down!

So I have officially finished a week at the new store, with my new job, and all new people. I have to say, it was the longest week of my life. I have been terrified and anxious because everything is just different enough to be totally stressful. But in a good, healthy, don't-have-to-deal-with-that-evil-witch-of-a-boss way. Everyone has been very sweet and helpful, and I think this is a really good thing. Plus, John and I have seen each other more in the past week than we have in months.

So to celebrate, last night a bunch of people from my old store got together at this crazy bar called Big Wangs to celebrate mine and another supervisors departure from the crazy life at Sunset and Vine. It made me really feel like I had made the right choice to move when everyone kept coming up to me, saying "You look so happy!" And I really am. It was great fun, and it was so nice to see everyone again.... I mean, I know it's only been a week, but I spent nearly every day for nearly two years with these people!

Friends and Family, REJOICE!

It's that time of year again.... Borders is having another Appreciation Weekend this upcoming weekend! The coupon is good for 20% off books and CDs (regular price only, it's not 20% off a sale price) 15% off DVDs, and 10% off electronics - which is cool because we carry game consoles and games for those consoles now!

Just print out the coupon from this link and take it to ANY Borders, Waldenbooks, or Borders Express July 8-11.....
