My friend Laurence sent me this quote today... and I thought it was worth sharing. "Music is what feelings sound like."

A Large Fortune cookie

One day, as I walked into the newsroom, I noticed something peculiar. Everyone I passed was opening a fortune cookie. Perhaps there was some sort of chinese luncheon I missed? Strange. I made my way to my desk and I too was offered a fortune cookie. Our assignment supervisor had a HUGE chinese take-out box (with a CNN logo on it) filled with fortune cookies and was handing them out like he was Santa Claus. I took my cookie and asked Andy if I could please have the big take-out box when he was done with it. It just made me laugh and I had to have it!!
On Saturday night, Karla Ann came down for a visit. After an awesome dinner at Foolini Koolini's and lots of great conversation...we decided to make a giant fortune cookie for the giant take-out box. Being the crafty creature that she is...KA had made fortune cookies before. This skill came in handy! We determined to fill the box with regular fortune cookies and place one large one on top. The next day I delivered it to Jason. I think his face said it all! He He. If only I'd thought of the giant chopsticks!!

My Friend, the Radio Producer

On Monday night, I was driving home after my first afternoon shift. It was about 11:45pm and I had my radio tuned to FM96. When the song was over, I heard a familiar voice hit the airwaves... my friend Greg! I knew that he had a radio show, but had never heard it (due to the late hour) I was so proud! Greg writes, produces and hosts the show called Albums That Matter
http://www.fm96.com/station/albums_that_matter.cfm on FM96. Check it out Sundays at 9pm or Mondays at 11pm.

Greg & I met while doing our co-op placements at (then) The New PL. He was in high school, I was in college. We really hit it off and have remained friends since then. Because our schedules are very different, we don't see each other often, but perhaps that will change with my new "evening shift". Greg is one of the funniest people I know. In fact, I like to call him my Superhero of Destiny. :) And of course, it's always fun to discuss our favourite show Gilmore Girls.

One week after celebrating Steve's 40th birthday, we celebrated my Grammie's 80th birthday! This is definitely a year of "ohs" in my family...with my 3-oh approaching much too quickly for my liking. Saturday was spent with family and friends, drinking coffee, eating cake and celebrating the remarkable life of my Grammie. Based on previous posts, I'm sure you can tell she is very special to me, so it was great to be able to celebrate such a milestone with her. I always like to tease her that she's half a century older than me!

Saturday night Jason & I went on a "double date" with Connie & Steve. We headed out for dinner at Wagg's and then did a little "rockin' bowling" at the Marcin Bowl. I actually surprised myself with my skill level that night! I'm not a bowler by any stretch of the imagination, but I actually got several strikes & spares and ended up with a final score of 102. Due to a technical glitch...Steve ended up winning with a fake score of 115 but really Jason was the winner of the evening, edging me out by ONE point.

Yesterday Jason & I spent the day watching Prison Break. Yes, I'm obsessed with that show...I've even posted about it before. What can I say? I love it. We ended up making our way through 10 episodes with 12 more to go.

Today I started my new regime at work. I discovered last Wednesday that as of today, my schedule would change to 3:15-11:45pm. Needless to say, this is a big change. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it yet, but I'm trying to look at the positives. I got to sleep in this morning and I'll be able to go to midnight movies if I want. (I probably won't but the option is there if I want!) It will be nice in the summer when I can head to the beach BEFORE work. However, it also means I won't see some of my favourite co-workers anymore as they will be gone by the time I get here, and I'll have no "evenings". I'm adjusting.

I know I haven't posted in a while, but I've been a busy girl. I'd like to introduce all my blog-readers to the person that's been taking up all my time... Jason!
