Another Rodeo Under My VeryBlingyBelt!

So glad to be back at the beach!  Rodeo was amazing (watching any/all activites from a Suite is highly recommended), my friends were fabulous (planning a trip to see Kid Rock again ~ he blew us away), I committed to run the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Vegas this December, I missed my pooches ~ wait?  What was that?  Marathon? 
Over an afternoon with several longtime friends (in the very hot sun) consisting of many lbs of yummy crawfish and even more buckets of icy cold beer (did I mention the centerofthesun heat?), I agreed ~ no, wait, was challenged, badgered, whatevered into running the half in Vegas.  It's at night, they said!  Down the Strip, they sang!  How very cool, they exclaimed!  Thank God it is only March ~ I have time to train.  I am SO COMMITTED that I went to DSW and all I bought (other that the gorgeous Valero sparkly sandals and waytoocute envelope clutch) were two pairs of unattractive Saucony running shoes.  Sadly, once you're professionally fitted with running shoes, you know how horrid any other type feels after many miles. 
But first ~ 'AB's' "Totally 80's 30th Birthday Bash" this weekend.  Am looking forward to using 3/4 of a can of the silver/pink AquaNet minimum (name the new ozone hole after me) and throwing on my best FlashDance garb ever!  Cannot wait! 
Gotta get back to a little catch up work ~ still aiming for the sky professionally!

No mas, por favor...!

I am up to my ears in work and such!  No more can be added to my plate, thank you!  Work is busier than busy, working my (generously sized) ass off with eyes on a promotion, getting ready for a Food Show next week, vacation the end of next week, taking care of a recently spayed lab puppy (keep her calm?  areyoufuckingkiddingme???), working on the Chaine des Rotisseurs dinner over the weekend and sleeping...  Well, whenever I get a minute.  Whew, felt good to unload that!
The weather has turned, at long last.  I love spring, though I believe I will better enjoy it next year AFTER the nose surgery when I will have both (working) nostrils.  Am ever so excited to pick my new nose, pun totally intended. 
No new news on the romance front, did finally shake the stage 4 clinger.  Why is it the ones you don't want to hear from can't (won't?) take a polite hint, yet the ones you want to call seem not to know how to use this modern invention (phone)?  Oh well, life's little mysteries.
Excited to be headed to Rodeo in just over a week ~ yee haw!!!
