You just brought it on yourself

It's been a while and I do apologize. That's one way for you to know that life is really busy over here, if nothing else.

I'm currently sitting in my apartment with a certain little dog sleeping soundly on my lap. This is how I've spent the past several evenings. She sleeps, I work, and we are both pretty content. Yes, she is living with me now. Unless you are my landlord, in which case I am merely watching her.

We've both been terrorized by the giant spiders moving inside right now. Despite their size, they can fit into the tiniest little cracks. They can also fit into my mailbox, bed, shower, and windows. One of them left a scar on my leg after it bit me, and that is when this got real, folks. I think the official war begins tomorrow, with some sweeping and spraying.

I'm working at a new desk now. I go in when I want, I leave when I want. I never have to dress up (but I do anyway). I work with some really cool people and get to know new people every week. Plus, my projects lately have been decidedly more challenging and fun. We listen to great music, have some really interesting conversations, and help each other out on projects. So far, this has been a great move!

I went on a blind date. It was less awkward than my last two not-blind dates. I'm pretty sure I hate dating.

I got to see Ra Ra Riot up close and personal in an unplugged set today. If they are coming to your city, buy tickets now! They were fantastic. The addition of the strings to any band almost instantly wins me over, but today's set relied more heavily on the violin and cello and it was great. It was one of the only shows that not only made me sad, but made me okay with being sad. That's when you know you are in the presence of good music.

There is so much more I could add here, but that will have to wait. I'm tired and need to layer up before bed. In a mere 7.5 hours I will be sitting in a meeting, hopefully not looking like sleep-deprived and allergy suffering death. Night, all.

What do you have to layer up for? Is it cold already and you are layering in flannel and down? Or is this some kind of medicinal layering, like Benadryl + Claritin + Advil PM? Or is it completely unrelated and you are "layering up" an Illustrator file or something?

I like this update post!! Terrorized by spiders is not good. Neither is dating. It takes SO MUCH willpower for me to not blog about my dates. I am thinking about starting an anonymous blog called :)

Hug Blair for me.
