Useless musings

• I have an irrational fear of not playing the lottery and my numbers hitting. I don’t play all the time, and when I do, I play one set of numbers and a quick pick. This is why you should just do quick picks… if I ever saw my numbers hit and I didn’t play, I would likely cause myself substantial bodily harm.

• Work is going pretty well so far. It’s weird to go from an office and managing analysts to a cube and basically being on the bottom of the totem pole. We have an intern coming soon though, so my status will change and I’ll move up a notch. Score.

• Being that I’m at a new job, I didn’t think it would be smart to start out coming in “late.” There are no set in stone hours or anything, but I figure I should be here around 8:30, which means I can’t work out at 6:45am. So, I started the 6:00am CrossFit class yesterday morning. Getting up before 6:00 is brutal, but I rationalize it by telling myself that getting up any time before 10:00 is hard for me, and I feel the same when I first wake up at 5:15 as I do at 6:00 and 6:30 and 7:00. I just don’t like to get up in the mornings… period. I could sleep for 12 hours every day, I think. I like to attribute it to being in touch with my ancestors… like the ones from thousands of years ago that slept that much, if not more. I was so meant to be a cavewoman.

• Speaking of sleep, Mother Nature, I'd sure appreciate it if you'd stop the middle of the night thunderstorms.  I almost drop kicked my sweet golden retriever at 2:00 am because of her thunderphobia.  I don't want to be a dog abuser, but I need my sleep.  Thank you to my husband who took her to the living room and slept on the couch, so I could sleep in peace (I hadn't slept well the last few nights and went to bed before 9:00... I couldn't take another night like that).

• Matt and I are going to see Ryan Bingham in concert tonight.  I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited.  If y'all don't know who he is, check him out.  Except don't, because he's getting too famous.  We saw him at Smith's Olde Bar a few years ago with maybe 100 people there, and then we weren't able to get tickets to his last two Atlanta shows because they sold out so quickly.  I guess an Oscar changes things (he did the music in the movie Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges).  Hope anyone reading, hi Jenn, has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!

How did you know I was reading? ;) I have no idea who Ryan Bingham is. You'll have to educate me on our road trip in a few weeks.
