So much to do, so little motivation.

I want to go home. I'm jealous that Jimi's still curled up in our warm bed - I want to be there with him. Instead, here I sit, at work, no reprieve for another 7.5 hours. I've got a million things to do, but no motivation to do any of it.

The moon was beautiful this morning. And the fog. I can't wait till tonight! (Please, don't let it rain!) Autumn nights are my favorite.

Dylan called me last night. He wants to come over and hang out when I get off work today. I love that my little brother is calling me to hang out. 18 years we've been siblings, and not until a few weeks ago was I able to spend a few hours with him without arguing or poppin' that "I'm older than you so I know better" attitude. Maybe we're both growing up.

Kristina's coming over early tonight so we can get ready together - I need help with my hair and she has a curling iron. :) YAY!

I need hot chocolate and an english muffin with peach jam. Happy Friday!

I've got your Super Hero right here.

I has a costume. Sorta. I'm going to be Marvel Girl (in green, on the right) - it fits with the theme for Sunday's party/wedding, it's not painted-on, skin-tight (well, I guess it's supposed to be, but mine won't be), and it's even kinda cute. It'll work with the new hairs, too. We (Jimi) bought the fabric and pattern for the dress last night, along with the mask-materials. Let me tell ya, if you've ever fantasized about how awesome it would be to make your own clothes, you may want to reconsider. We cut out patterns and fabric last night - talk about tedious! It didn't take nearly as long as I'd thought it would, but I was tired and wanted to go to bed. It made for less work tonight, though, so again, I need to thank my lucky stars that my fantastic boyfriend is not a procrastinator like me.

Tonight I have to find a pair of white satin gloves that come to my elbows, then I have to dye them yellow to match the belt and boots. I was worried I'd have to drive all the way to the mall, to Claire's, but I just remembered that I can find what I need at David's Bridal, which is considerably closer. Jimi needs claw-colored nail polish, too. (It's a blog, Natalie, not a shopping list.)

I've got a million things to do at work today, so I should get to them. Happy Thursday!

These are a few of my favorite things:

(Today, at least.)

♥ Ear plugs. All the better to sleep with when you wake up at 5 a.m. and can't get back to sleep because your beloved is sawing logs (little ones, but logs nonetheless) next to you.

♥ Work errands. An excuse to leave the florescent comfort of my office and venture out into the cold damp world of ignorant drivers, jay-walking pedestrians, and angry men in wheelchairs refusing to leave the bank because he had to give the clerk a thumb print.

♥ The Louisville Water Company's building. Holy smokes! Have you seen that place? Maybe I'm easily impressed, but I liked it.

♥ Insincere compliments. Even if I hate my new hair color, at least my co-workers are kind enough to pretend it's not that bad.

♥ Snarky quips from my nearest and dearest. My friends have a wit that gives me something to strive for.

♥ My job.

♥ And finally, last, but never least, exchanging love letters (emails) with Jimi:

Dear World's Best Boyfriend:

I love you. You are the greatest boyfriend in the whole wide world. You are awesomer than cake and ice cream with chocolate syrup and whipped cream and nuts and a banana!

In closing, I love you.


World’s Best Girlfriend

Dear love of my life,


in closing, you make me happier than i have ever been before.

your sweet Baboo

*sigh* If only all of life could be this good.
