Deja Vu All Over Again

So, I keep seeing things on tv and gossip blogs about The Jonas Brothers and I really have no idea who they are (probably because I'm no longer 14). I don't think I've heard them sing before(probably a good thing) and I just feel utterly clueless when I see pictures of them, like they're a joke I just don't get.

Anyway, the one thing that's bugged me about them, aside from being ridiculously over-styled and sensitve-looking, is that I swear I've seen them before. I've put more time into thinking about this than I care to admit.

And then it came to me.


Good luck to you, Jonases.

Sigg Water Bottles

I ordered these water bottles last week for the two of us and aren't they pretty? I ordered them because working out without a water bottle kinda sucks.

They're 100% aluminum, so they're recyclable when/if they ever give up. My only complaint is that the screw top seems like it'll be a pain, but I just ordered sports tops for them. Life can go on now.

I Want Them All

These are the Sugar Stacks rings that Paloma Picasso has designed for Tiffany and I love them all. Too bad the cheapest of the lot is $995. And naturally I think two or three would look best stacked together. File this under "Not Gonna Happen."

Helpful Hints from Lindsey

Should you find yourself ever looking for a job, here are some helpful hints on submitting a resume straight from a person who will have to read that garbage:
  1. If you don't have much work experience to go on, listing relevant college courses is fine. "Relevant" means that you probably shouldn't include your A+ in Hip Hop Dance.
  2. Being "proficient with Google, Yahoo!, MSN, and Hotmail" does not qualify you for an IT job.
  3. Put your name on your resume. It's helpful. Actually, I take that back. If you're dumb enough not to put your name on your resume, then leave it off. That saves me from having to interview you.
  4. Don't use Comic Sans and your font of choice. Not for a Communications Director position. Or any position, for that matter. Actually, I take that back. See #3 for details.

I Can Has Backsplash?

This will go down as yet another weekend in which I'm actually relieved to go to work on Monday because it means I get to sit down. (Seriously, this happens all. the. time.)

Chris and I tiled the backsplash this weekend and it was actually a pretty easy. Sooooooo much easier than tiling the bathroom.

Anyway, we did a lot of tiling on Saturday then finally grabbed dinner at Pei Wei and settled down for an evening of watching "Dances With Wolves." Somehow we ended up with the extended director's version. I guess the original is long enough, but did you know that the extended version is about 5 hours long? I didn't. We're halfway done. Good movie, just long. And it's not fast-paced, by any means.

Then today, we got up and started tiling at 8:45 am. I'm not joking. We took a break around noon to eat and then tiled some more and then took another break around 2 to go to the gym. Read that again: we took a break. to go to the gym. Something is wrong with us. Then we tiled some more.

What kind of backsplash did we have prior to the tiled backsplash? None. None at all, unless you count really, really greasy drywall. And I'm pretty sure that doesn't count.

Anyway, to remind you of what this kitchen looked like in October:

Pretty bad, huh?

Here's what it's looking like now (imagine angels start singing here):

Again, before:

After (more singing):

It's still not 100% finished, but it will be this week. Very, very exciting. Then I can have my life back. To celebrate, I made myself a drink: equal parts vodka and pomegranate liquor garnished with some pretty sugar and some pomegranate seeds because I'm feeling extra festive.

Anyway, the drink is gone now and I'm feeling quite buzzed. I was going to write a letter of recommendation for a former coworker this evening, but now I'm thinking that's not such a good idea. Unless he wants to get rejected from the Peace Corps.
