i am so melancholy today . . .but it's okay . . .i'm at work, and i blocked out the entire day to work from home. this is okay because it's been productive. i cried playing tennis this a.m. i am so bad . . .sophie was very supportive, but i still embrace failure in the same way i did as a kid: "bend your knees, stretch your arm [the racquet is an extension of your arm] hustle, hustle, hustle . . .) alas . . .however, it feels good now - 2 hours later - that i worked out at all . . .and my armani sunglasses (left in the locker room) have indeed been retrieved ready for my collection if i can ever get out of here!

i've been on hold for almost 10 minutes - the rent board - trying to understand this live/work affidavit they want me to sign for my live/work loft . . .i knew it was too good to be true . . .i knew it . . .whew - i am, by nature, an optimistic person . . .today is just, well . . .something . . .i wonder if i'm having adaptability issues . . .this has never been a problem for me . . .(moments later): i just got of the 'phone with the rent board . . .i think this is going to work out . . .

ahhh . . .w'end of tennis, beach and shopping . . .i need this . . .

okay . . .it's rough . . .what's happening with companies in our industry . . . but, if i were to play pollyanna, i could say this about my company: there's more cereal. that's right . . . every tuesday morning we have a breakfast meeting . . . mmmmm . . . and then for a day or two you can eat the left over cereal . . .but now, the cereal lasts all week . . .it's sad really . . .that we've lost people . . .and cereal eaters at that . . .as i define cereal eaters as damn fine folk . . .well . . .i ate cereal for lunch today . . .and it's thursday . . .hmmmm . . .

the yogurt and danish still disappear by tuesday lunchtime.

patrik and i have the big sister/younger brother thing resolved . . .just sayin' . . .

i'm listening to "rock of the 70's" right now . . .isn't that silly . . .it conjures up all sorts of stuff from high school . . .how ridiculous . . . jeff d. (i don’t think i should use his last name, right?), the drummer in the band opus . . .THE high school band . . .he was considered quite hot, which is hysterical, 'cause i think i have a pretty vivid image of what he looked like . . .okay, wait . . .i need to forward the cd, i'm not in the mood for meatloaf's "hot summer night." Perhaps i'll forward to cheap trick's "i want you to want me." i wonder if this will set the tone for my day . . .

speaking of which . . .my day that is . . .i shall be bringing my check to the guy who is going to hand over the loft to me . . .how 'bout that? sign three copies of the lease and get over there by 6 p.m. easy groovy : ) hooray!!

i have this anxious feeling right now . . . this happens to me periodically, and i have to deconstruct . . . what i believe it is, is my car stereo . . .i had to jump start my car, so the anti-theft thingy kicked in, and you need a code to get your stereo back . . .i mean, the stereo is still there, but it’s useless . . . .but . . .the little red light is still flashing on it, so, if nothing else, it looks important . . . anyway, i called the dealership ‘cause that’s what the manual says to do, and i’m all about following directions, but they said they can’t help . . .so ,if there isn’t enough on my list – you know, big stuff – find a home, get a plane ticket to go to Rochester for an entire week (more on that later) in the midst of moving, get every single thing i own which is currently in a storage unit in boston with united van lines out of storage and across country at the right moment (i.e., NOT when i’m in Rochester on business so it sits there unloved on the street with a moving guy tracking me down for a 4 grand check . . .) you get this, right . . .you see where i’m coming from on this, yeah? well . . . the last thing i need to do is figure out the damn car stereo . . . there has got to be someone i can pay to do this for me!!

oh . . .can i say . . .i’m beyond excited about my loft?

can i say that i’m thrilled that i still have a tan . . .a real tan . . . that i will buff @ the beach this weekend . . .

can i say that tennis is the coolest thing . . .and not just the outfits . . .

can i say that i am damn lucky . . .blessed even . . .and know it! i do . . . i know it . . . i sit having breakfast sometimes and just beam . . .i mean it . . .i beam . . .’cause i know how fortunate i am . . .

Now . . .can we talk about the prop plane i have take from cleveland to Rochester . . .damn, damn, damn . . .and that’s bullshit – they DO NOT glide . . .(arrrggggh . . .kristen does not like to fly . . .)

ps - i just got an email from patrik, and he referred to us as ‘big sister/little brother.’ hmmm . . that’s weird . . .he never had an age ‘thing’ when we together as girlfriend/boyfriend . . .that’s interesting . . . that feels weird, actually . . .that’s not what it feels like to me . . . feels like we’re friends . . .that’s it . . .

by the way . . . i think panties in a bunch is jealous ‘cause she’s into all your foody references as well as your groovin’ graphics . . . her blog kind of has the same tone . . .you know? well, jenny doesn’t write about being wanton, but other than that . . .does that make sense?

man . . . i was getting really worried about jenny 'cause there were no entries for days . . . blame it on blogspot. that was most disconcerting . . . i must say!

i had a meltdown yesterday . . . crying, crying, crying . . . good lord . . .it feels good, actually . . .tuckers you right out . . . well, in the midst of loathing work, i ran out to look @ an apartment . . .a loft really . . .so, even in the depressed SF market, my expectation was i wouldn't be able to afford it. . .well, wrong you are! fabulous little place, brand new building, near everything i absolutely love, can walk to work (did i mention i gained 50 beelion pounds since december), lofty, loft bed room, and, and, and . . .they threw in parking for nothin' . . .and, and, and . . .they're throwing in june for free . . .ah uh . . .that's right . . .i'm waiting for something to go badly wrong . . .it's too perfect!! but the guy left me a message today confirming and congratulating . . .jenny, help, you must visit - much new furniture bits to be purchased (i.e., a "hold everything" spree!)

so . . .i am playing tennis . . .i played last Sunday and this a.m. – how fabulous. i love the whole thing – you know, the outfit, the club, the game . . .most excellent indeed. i suck . . . but i don’t really think that matters . . . it’s been over ten years since i played . . .but now . . .well, i’m all over the fear! can i just say . . .outfits, outfits, outfits!

by the way . . . so I can mimic jenny: BBCAmerican is a most excellent cable station as mentioned in my last entry . . .but, now, in full-on jenny fashion – you can check it out too!!
