give me a break…

break me off a piece of that Reeces Cup! *but I’ll take a Kit-Kat–im just sayin*

Today’s a busy day…

DSL guy + biz insurace folks + paint estimate + window etching estimate + security estimate + furniture drop-off.

Matter of fact, based on the # of things I need to get to today, I think I’ll buy a coffee maker for the office like I have at home.  I’ve had my friend Tassi  for about a year now, and believe me, she makes Hot Chocolate. Her coffee’s alright. I think I’m just used to the amount of SUGAR + CARBS Starbucks puts in their coffee.

Alright…let me go find my banana and get to work.

Have a happy happy day!

I Can’t Sleep… | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Sunday, February 24th, 2008 in Girl Geek · 7 Comments

and I have a million things running through my mind.

I haven’t been at a point where I wasn’t able to sleep for a long time.

Maybe it was the Starbucks hot chocolate that I had around 9pm. But geez, what’d they put in it? crack?

Whenever I’m awake like this with ideas and projects running through my head, I call it “my will to succeed”.

I know that in about 4 hours we’ll be waking up to head to church…only, I’ll probably still be awake. And if I fall asleep in church, that’s not gonna be the hawtness.  But I can’t for the life of me, figure out a way to turn my thoughts off.

It’s like a whole bunch of numbers and hex colors all in one. Jesus Mother Mary on the cross.

At least I was able to catch up on some work and take care of some work that I would be doing if I wasnt going to be in the office all next week getting things ready for walk-ins the following week.

Okay…gonna go try to lay down and catch an hour or two before Church. Besides…the sun is coming up…good Lord…

Slacking Off | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

I guess as soon as I start to excel in one area, I slack off in another…*sigh*.

I haven’t really had a chance to post in a few days. My bad. This week is flying by so fast. I feel like it was just. Sunday.

Random Thoughts for Wednesday:

  • Thank God for Lysol wipes…
  • Who ever thought choosing a paint color for an office would be so damn hard?
  • I forgot Flavor of Love (Season 3) had already started.
  • There are so many interesting people in the blogosphere…and I’m glad to have a good mix of acquaintances.
  • God’s an awesome God…
  • Time to get back on track with my training program. Hopefully I can get my body on a new schedule once I get the office setup and get used to driving to an office every morning. Maybe waking up at 5am is going to be the key to still being able to hit the gym in the morning. I’ll just have to take an earlier cycling class.
  • I’m looking for a heavy flash programmer for contract work. If you know anyone, have them email me.

A new episode of The Gauntlet III is about to come on…must go.

Hope that you had a Happy Hump Day!

You know how when you don’t have anything good to say…

And they say you shouldn’t say anything at all?

That’s where I’m at…with that.

The weekend was good…no complaints there. Incog and I chilled pretty much all weekend. Yay.

I can’t wait for summer to get here…I like the beach…and the pier…and the promenade…and…just…relaxing outside.

I have some meetings this morning. but I managed to fit in a 1/2 hour gym session.

Alright, God…let’s go…

Go Go Gadget…Mac? | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

· Thursday, January 17th, 2008 in Girl Geek · 9 Comments

If you know anything about me, you know that I don’t do….Macs. Can’t stand em. Don’t like em. Despise em. I used to have one when I was 5. My dad was a computer engineer, so we always had a few computers laying around the house. I had one with the black screen and the font that was green. You had to purchase games in 5.25 diskettes that came in blue and black from the weekend computer show. *flashback*

But since then, I’ve been a PC chic. Gateway all the way. Dell can go to hell. *yeah, it rhymes – on purpose*

About the best thing Apple has ever created was the Ipod, and the only reason I purchased it was because it came in pink. *shrug*

product-air.jpgBut yesterday, I watched good old Stevey announce and show off his new MacBook Air. And he made me want one. I mean, not bad enough to actually purchase one. But…I must admit my credit card hand was twitching.

I mean…it’s aight. I guess.

$1800.00 huh? Hmmm… I wonder how many of these are going to fly off the shelves. A lot, I’m guessing. The same way the Iphone did…the exact same way. Folks standing in line with drool bibs and diapers on, trying to keep their place in line to get the new grand fabulous MacBook Air. Sounds like fun. Yeah…I’m being a hater. Whatever.

Anyways, I bought a new printer yesterday because I needed one that does duplexing for the office. But I bought the wrong one, unfortunately. I wanted the one that had wireless networking, since it obviously wont fit on my desk. But I grabbed the one that requires an ethernet cable. I mean…they look exactly the same, with the exception of the ports in the back. So… instead of trying to repack it and strain a pinky toe returning it to BestBuy, I’m gonna go ahead and just purchase a Wireless USB Hub. Nevermind the fact that I just purchased a 7 port USB hub last week. *sigh* But… a girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do.
