Holy Burrito!

I won 5 more free burritos from Chipotle! When the manager called to tell me the news, he gave me 2 options: You can share your winnings with your family, friends and co-workers; OR, feel free to keep all 5 burritos for yourself.

I decided to share; and we all fit perfectly around the last available big round table.

Man, I love my guardian angel.

And my personal trainer. :)

In all of this, I finally found the meaning!

I feel much better now.

Although, I find definition 2 a bit disconcerting. I am short, but chubby? I do run and I guess, try to run fast, and I live in Minneapolis. WTH? Kind of scary.


They closed my office due to sunshine.

I love my new job!

Have an excellent weekend - be safe, but have fun!

Feeling Guilty

For not knowing where my feet are. And it freaks me out so I just put 'em down in places that I shouldn't.

Hyser & I

Proof that we're still alive. At least before we went out for St. Patrick's Day!

My Brain Cells Say A Collective


Thursday, March 17, 2005


There once was a chap named Dean
Oh how he wanted his beer green
So he waited all year
'Til green turned his beer
Now he's green too so it seems

Drive safe everyone - Ride any city bus for FREE!! (from 6pm to 3am)

O' Happy Day

From Korea to the U.S.
She flew in on an Airbus
Swedish her Dad is
But she arrived on St. Patty's
And so she thought herself Irish!

I really need to work on my limerick skills.

Today we celebrate all that is GREEN.
The luck o' the Irish, shamrocks, and green beer. You really can't go wrong.

Today also makes me feel patriotic and humbled; thankful to be here. 26 years ago today, I was on a plane, sleeping soundly while my life changed forever. I've always been lucky. I have parents who loved my every step, friends who have been and will be forever, a great career, shelter, food. Choices. Being the only Korean-Swede-but-Irish-by-default, is just an extra perk.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Have Fun.
Be Safe.

Happy Birthday Susie & Stacy!

I got to celebrate Susie & Stacy's birthdays last night.

We dished at Buffalo Wild Wings for awhile, then headed to Time Out and eventually to The Venue. White Castle's rock!

Thanks for inviting me out, Girls. & for putting me up for the night. Or putting up with me; however you look at it :)

I love you guys!

I own the Internet!

I am writing from the comfort of my own home. It's amazing. I haven't done this for over 2 years!

This is going to be terribly random as I have a million things to say and T minus 40 seconds to say them.

Dad, thanks for the chicken! They bake up so quick and crispy in the convection oven - take comfort in knowing that your daughter will be well-nourished! Before and after the bar. :)

I'm looking for a townhouse/condo/loft. And using it for motivation to THROW STUFF AWAY. I haven't tackled the storage locker yet, but don't worry, I'll make sure I wear the appropriate safety gear before endangering my life.

The Minneapolis 500 Club tournament is next Saturday. I just hope I don't forget to release the ball and end up half-way down the lane.

It was 60 degrees on Sunday - there's no way I can move away from the river. There's something calming about the river in the sunshine. As long as you're not being carried over the dam by it.

Thanks to whoever hit my passenger door in the parking lot presumably at work.

I was actually able to do some work on Cory's site tonight. I didn't accomplish everything I wanted but it is a start. And next time I work at home, I won't have to waste an hour removing Oracle and setting up the firewall/anti-virus crap.

On a more somber note, there's a reason why I had time to organize and work on the website. Normally I suppose I'd be hanging out with Ryan, probably watching a movie or just going to bed. We'd hit a rough spot. I don't want to say too much - I respect Ryan's privacy and feelings and want to protect all that we had and whatever is left. But this is my outlet and I need to be honest and own up to the fact that things have changed. This isn't going to be easy and I'm really trying to let myself feel the hurt instead of my usual pain response which is to run away from it until it doesn't hurt anymore. Thank you to my friends who have hugged me and known when and when not to ask if everything's all right.

Small World

I've been having the usual work history talk with some of the telecom guys here - it's funny how we all seem to have just fallen into the industry. I credit my start to Dominic DesMarais who hired me into Call Management at Damark so many years ago.

I just applied for a mortgage last Tuesday.

These seem unrelated, but Wednesday night, I got a mass mail postcard with Dominic's photo on it. He's a Mortage Advisor. I wrote him and we caught up briefly - he may be able to help me with my mortgage and I may be able to help him with a website. Funny how things work out! If you're looking for a home > e-mail Dominic!

Kennedy should be coming home in 2 weeks. I'm so excited for Sus & Keith! Also, it was Susie's birthday yesterday. Oh to be 25 again :)

Hey did you know that you can get Internet connection at HOME? I'm going to splurge so I should have more time to devote to this, and hitmendjs.com which Cory will be happy about. I'm SO sorry that I haven't been a faster worker. It's hard to work when you have to transfer files all over the place and wait in line for 20 minutes at the business office only to realize you have the wrong version on the flash drive.

Sherry & Randy's baby chihuahuas are the cutest, sweetest, tiniest packages of love ever. I will post pictures. I just can't promise when.

Speaking of cute, I bought a cute little plant from Target. I didn't want to over-water it, so I under-watered it and it's waifing away. Now I've probably drowned it. I'm sure there's a happy medium in there somewhere. If I could only find it.

Such is life. There's more to tell but I'm not sure how and right now isn't probably the best time since I have to start work. I love my job but man, does work get in the way :)

Happy Monday everyone.
