So I am being a lot sarcastic. But we do get the opportunity to participate in new product testing. Which is actually a lot of fun! I have been trying to get into the scratch testing, but the competition is steep, and you have to be invited to join. So when I got the email asking if I wanted to try a new anti aging moisturizer, I was all about it.
I went to my initial meeting where we were given the products, told how to apply them and given our initial survey. I went home washed my face and put on the products. It was a half face test, so one moisturizer on the right side, one on the left. When I started I looked so happy and excited
Well when I go fill up my gas tank and buy a diet coke for free it will all be worth it. For now I will file away my completion as an occupational hazard.

- Extreme sleep deprivation.
- Over stimulation in the work environment previously.
- Work induced Anxiety over pending/potential promotion.
- Lack of actual social interaction with co-workers (IM chatting does not count).
- An almost empty in box, no voice mails to return, the slow time of the month before the rush.
It got even better. I was sitting at my desk toggling back and froth between some personal work(google reader/blogger/facebook/gmail) and some work related business, when my bosses, boss came over to my desk.
BossM: You a Jazz fan?
Me: Yeah of course
BossM: Hands me a ticket to the Corporate Suite, walks away.
Me: (STUNNED) Is this a real ticket?
BossM: Don't be late
Turns out that my bosses, bosses, boss got the suite for the night and they were sharing! How nice is that? So some work friendies/real friendies and I carpooled up to the game. Which was even better since we got a free parking pass. The SUITE was great.
[PERFECT view/plenty of space/nice seats/private bathroom/free dinner & Snacks/game gift waiting for you/ and so on].
It was a lot of fun to hang out, chit chat and watch the game. I have never been so comfortable while at a professional sporting event. So thanks to my bosses and the Skinny for a great day of (un)work.

PS: Bree and Victor are now in love because of a little meddling and this event. Good times.

I mean HONESTLY, we weren't friends before we dated. We weren't friends after we dated. Then we REdated, that was a Big Mess. Its been a few years since we talked, I mean I have seen him on several occasions, and have: blown him off big time/ignored him/ran the other direction/smiled/waved/hoped he didn't see me/was glad when he ignored me. I'm not the kind of girl who wants to stay friends.
I mean isn't that a load of crap? I am not in the market for more guy friends, I have plenty in my real life. Why would I want to grant him an all access pass to my life, when I honestly could care less if I ever see/talk to/hear from him again?
I don't want to. So I didn't. I ignored the REQUEST, he re-requested. So this time I did send a nice message saying thanks for thinking of me, hope you are well, but we aren't Friends so I'm not adding you.
In TRUE DB Triz fashion he wrote back all sad and manipulative. I laughed, because that was confirmation enough that we could NEVER be friends.
Would you grant that annoying EX an all access pass to your life? EVEN if you knew he would totally lurke you page?

Day Two we headed down town to China Town/Canal Street. We saw Ms. Kitty, the AMAZING psychic who looked into our futures and told us what was to come. She NAILED it. The readings were boarder line creepy, not like bad feeling but just erie how spot on they were. I can not wait to see the great event that will happen on September 16th or 17th, get rid of ex boyfriends who keep popping up and discus with the tall skinny man if he in facts loves me. That should be an interested conversation =)
We ate at Cosi, amazing flat bread. Shopped for Fabric at MOOD! Saw the Project Runway style boards, saw spandex world, a GIANT BYU flag, ordered Thai take away, watched Cool Hand Luke, and baby sat while Erin and Nate went out. It was our little thank you for letting us crash.
It was a great few days. I loved EVERY minute of it!

I'm Sinlge, and not lip slutty anymore. SUE ME.
Anyways... I was click around and found this little beauty:
"I read about this kissing trick years ago and, whenever I've done it with guys, they go absolutely crazy. Here it is...
Lie down next to (or straddle) your boyfriend. Face each other and put your mouths very very close, so your lips are touching. Open your mouths, but don't kiss each other. Instead, breath in and out at opposite times, so you're "trading" breaths -- so you're breathing out when he's breathing in, and you're breathing in when he's breathing out. Do it for about a minute--or as long as you can without ripping each other's clothes off!
I swear, it sounds really simple, but it's AMAZINGLY on-fire-burning hot. You almost start to feel like you're the same person and you just want to crawl inside their mouth."
It's gotten rave reviews.

So my roommate left me a sticky note asking me if I wanted to go out with a guy in our ward on Friday (I was working crazy hours last week and didn't see much of the roomies in person). So I thought...why not? I mean being fake set up is like one of the top ten MOST annoying things of all times. USUALLY they are the most awkward 3.5-4 hours of your life. SOMETIMES you fake an emergency to get out of them (THANK you cell phones), sometimes you text the entire way through setting up other plans for later (I have been guilty of this with set ups, real dates and BF's) or in my case (I would rather be out with friends, I get easily bored, and I'm ballsy) SOMETIMES you flat out ask to be taken home.
I mean what is not to love about having people you have never really talked to suggest that you meet someone? I mean having your close personal friends set you up NEVER works out, maybe its better to take the advise of strangers..who knows!
So yeah, I went. It was fun. He was really nice. It was a big group of people. He was polite enough to personally introduce me to almost all of them. He opened doors, got my coat for me, kept the convo going. It was a good times. We had a lot to talk about, a lot in common and had fun analysing the other couples there. We laughed, played sardines, and fell in love. NO, NO we didn't.
My roommates thought that when one of them caught me sneaking in late. I had to put the smack down on that before everyone I have EVER met thought we were out until almost 2am.
Roommate: So did you and Neighbor Boy* hit if off last night?
Me: I had a fun time, he is really nice. I really enjoyed myself.
Roommate: I figured when I saw you com in so late, were you watching a movie at his place?
Me: Nooooooooo. I went out after that. I mean he was great and all, but I don't want you thinking I was there all night.
Roommate: Ohhh we all figured when you weren't home you guys must have been in love.
Don't want him thinking I'm some stalker chick! I mean I have to randomly run into him at least once a week for the next 8 months, we can't have my reputation ruined JUST yet...
So maybe there is something to meeting up with strangers and putting yourself out there. Defiantly not a love connection, but still a really great night. (I mean unless he is in love with me, and then I'm sure I could convince myself to like him. =) hee hee, ohhh being a girl)
