christmas 2009

Christmas was awesome this year. I cooked dinner for everyone and it turned out delicious! I had planned to take pics of all of the food once it was ready but I forgot. Too bad cuz it was good and it looked good. I'm just happy everything
was edible cuz that doesn't always happen.... like last year. But we won't talk about that. Here are some pics of the festivities...

five minutes ago....

.... I was in the lobby area of my office when Mr. Handsome walked in. I was just about to leave so I walked behind Mr. handsome on my way back to my side of the building when he mentioned that he really didn't want to be here today and asked if I was here all day. I opened my mouth to answer him and took a breath, evidently forgetting that I was still swallowing some water. I choked - a lot - and he kinda chuckled and asked if I was ok. I waived that I was fine and then tried to look as though I had regained my composure by answering his question. "Yes", I choked out, "I'm here all week unfortunately."

He turned around with a puzzled look on his face and said "All week? Even Friday?"

I replied, still trying to hold back my choking coughs,"Yep, though I only work a half day that day. It's next week that I have a couple days off."

"Really?", said he. "What groups do you have that would even be open for anything that day? Or do you just have a lot of work that day?"

I was somewhat puzzled by this time, it's not like we were the only business open on Christmas eve. "No, I have absolutely nothing to occupy my time. But the office is open until 1:00 that day so I'm here."

"Really? On Friday?"

And then it dawned on me, Friday is Christmas not Christmas Eve. facepalm!

"Umm wait, Friday is Christmas huh? Hello! I meant Thursday." > insert nervous laughter < "Uhhh yeah no we're not open that day..."

"Oh, well that's good." he said.

Then I ran away and cried. Not really but my confidence is deflated by like a bagillion percent.

email exchange w/ mr. handsome

So...... I've spoken to my crush, whom we will refer to as Mr. Handsome, three times since he came to our office AND today I exchanged emails with him. I'm an idiot when it comes to guys and sometimes I read too much into things while other times I am totally blind to whats going on.

With that said I have posted our email exchange below. Please tell me what you think. I think I totally lost him, especially at the end. Is it because I didn't ask a question or was he already done with the convo long before then?

Preface: I had gone to a Sant Claus Pub crawl on Friday night with some ladies from work. I normally work half days on Fridays so I had gone home, got all hoochified and then came back to work to meet the girls. Mr. Handsome was still there, getting ready to leave so we chatted for a bit about different things, his plans for the weekend, my plans for that night and how I was the DD, he said being a DD isn't all it's cracked up to be, yadda, yadda, yadda. Needless to say I was on cloud nine after that little exchange. If I had had beer poured over me repeatedly during the night I don't think I would have minded, that's how happy I was.

Today I sent out an email to everyone in the office letting them know their gifts (cookies) were in the break room (which is what the first email by me is)....

Hi everyone,

Your Christmas treats are in the break room. There's chewy white chocolate coconut cookies, devil's food mint cookie sandwiches and spice maple cookie sandwiches. Enjoy!

>>> Mr. Handsome 12/21/2009 10:00 AM >>>
These are AMAZING! How was the santa crawl last Friday?

>>> Ashley 12/21/2009 10:35 AM >>>
Good, I'm glad you like them :0)

The pub crawl was interesting but good, thank you for asking! Someone actually meowed at me which was really weird but it was nice to hang out with the girls outside of work and get to know them a little bit better. But overall I had a good time.

Did you have a good weekend?

>>> Mr. Handsome 12/21/2009 10:47 AM >>>
Ha ha...okay I'm seriously laughing about the meow! How did you respond?

My weekend was good, but way too short. Luckily this week shouldn't be too bad!

>>> Ashley 12/21/2009 11:14 AM >>>
Obviously I was caught off guard so I just sort of chuckled nervously and backed away. After he left I realized that I probably should have hissed at him. That would have been awesome.

I know, weekends never seem long enough. I seriously can't believe Christmas is only a few days away. I'm sooooo excited! Do you have any fun plans during the holidays?

>>> Mr. Handsome 12/21/2009 11:31 AM >>>
I SO wish you would have hissed at him! Ya, I'm really excited that it's Christmas this week. I'm not ready for it at all, but I think it will come anyway! I don't have anything too exciting...just being off work!

How about you? Any exciting plans...?

>>> Ashley 12/21/2009 12:17 PM >>>
I'm not ready for it yet either. Well, I haven't decorated yet (we still have stuff up from Halloween) nor have I wrapped anyone's presents but at least my shopping is almost done. It's going to be really good though. My brother and his family are coming over for Christmas dinner so I'm excited to try out some new recipes and play with my nieces and nephew.

Taking time off during the holidays is the best. I usually take a week or so off since it's so slow during that time but not this time. I decided to go on a couple vacations over the summer instead so I only have a day or two off.

>>> Mr. Handsome 12/21/2009 1:22 PM >>>
That's no bueno that you only get a couple of days this time. At least you got some good vacations in during the year though.


Yeah I think I totally blew it at the end. Or maybe the whole thing. Maybe he didn't want to chat. Bloody hell I am so confused/flustered!!!!!!



P.S. Avatar = pure AWESOMENESS times like a bagillion. Seriously.

twilight happiness

So I'm over the whole China thing. Luckily for me and everyone around me, if I get mad or upset about something I'm usually over it pretty quickly unless it's something truly horrific. Anywho here are some awesome Twilight spoofs for you to enjoy and hopefully make you giggle :0)

Twilight with Cheeseburgers

How Twilight Should Have Ended


can you blame me?

So I'm a little pissed right now. My friend and I were planning going to China next year so she can meet her online BF of three years. I am a pretty protective person when it comes to my friends and family and I wanted to make sure that she didn't get hurt or ya know sold into some sex slavery thing. I've been really, really, really excited about going. I mean come on, it's friggin' CHINA!! I love to travel and just the thought of actually going to a different country and going sightseeing and experiencing another culture was insaneley exciting to me.

Not 20 minutes ago via facebook I found out that evidently we're not going to China anymore. Hmmm.... nobody told me about this! I was seriously contemplating not going on some of my other trips next year just so I could make sure I had enough money for China. Don't get me wrong, if we're not going because she broke up with her BF that's fine. Not a big deal. The thing that makes me so pissed is that she never told me anything. Nothing. At all. I had to find it out from facebook.
