And it’s just another Manic Monday

When I say ‘this weekend was a busy one’, I mean it. We had so much to do which made those two precious days go by so fast!

Friday I got to leave work a little earlier than usual, got on an early train and had time to relax before I headed out for the evening. It was so nice! I just vegged out in front of the TV – caught up with the cast of ‘Glee’ on Oprah. After spending time with Oprah, I spent time with Danielle. D and I grabbed some delicious sushi then headed to Merrimack to see their performance of RENT. It was excellent; I was very impressed – such amazing voices!

Saturday morning I woke up with a migraine. TERRIBLE! Like, seriously – why on a Saturday? I slowly got it together and made some moves. First move – buy Jack Johnson tickets for July 12th. CAN NOT WAIT for the concert – I loove me some Jack Johnson and I’ve never seen him perform. I have however met him at the Pearl Jam/U2 concert in Hawaii a few years ago. That was one of the best days of my life. Second move – go run important errands and browse a few shops. Since I dropped the ball on Rent the Runway, I figured I might as well have a look… I found a really cute dress to wear to the wedding so I was pumped!

Not the best picture, but you get the gist...

Saturday night was the wedding and although I had a migraine I powered through and we had a great time – so much fun! Bim looked gorgeous and extremely happy – her and Scott seemed to really enjoy the whole evening.

It was funny to be socializing/drinking/dancing with ‘work people.’ Colin was a huge hit as usual! I love having him with me at social events, he is so good - talks to anyone, doesn’t mind dancing, just likes to have a good time. He makes everyone laugh and people generally love him (especially me!)

OH! Also… I caught the bouquet! This little man visiting over from Thailand (Bim is Thai) caught the garter. I had to sit on the chair in front of everyone while this man put the garter on my thigh - in front of work people. Pretty interesting…

Sunday morning we got up early and hit the road – destination, St. Johnsbury VT for Colin’s grandfather’s birthday party! It was a really good time – I love getting to see all of Colin’s family. The drive back was beautiful (and I was actually awake for most of it.)

Still a little snow on the mountain...

Now, onto today’s business -

On 4/15 bring in a reusable tumbler and Starbucks will fill it for free in an effort to get rid of paper cups!

Congratulations to Phil Mickelson for his Master’s win!! The good husband, dad, son, person, etc. won and that is something to celebrate. After a tough year supporting his wife as well as his mother with their battle against breast cancer, he won a battle of his own. He might have even taught Tiger a thing or two about karma.

A G-string and a mask?

Tonight I’ll be attending the Harris Center’s 2010 Public Forum held in the Burden Auditorium at the Harvard Business School at 6pm. The Harris Center at Massachusetts General Hospital is ‘dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with eating disorders.’ The forum topic is Health Matters: Weight and Wellness in the World of Fashion. The guest speakers are Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Magazine, Michael Kors, American fashion designer as well as a judge on Lifetime TV’s Project Runway, and Natalia Vodianova, a Russian model and Philanthropist. I am thrilled to be able to go – I was originally on the wait list for this but recently received confirmation of my attendance. I’m sure I will have a lot to say about this tomorrow…

Also, Thursday a few of my girl friends and I are going to the Shecky’s Girls Night Out event at Cyclorama – 539 Tremont Street – Thursday 5-10pm. They are also holding this event Wednesday as well as Friday, however I believe Friday is SOLD OUT. I’ve never been to one of these, but they sound fun! They showcase new Spring trends, new beauty regiments, beer & cocktails (with ticket) and goodie bags.

Some big news today is that President Obama will be signing the $875 billion healthcare reform bill at The White House tomorrow morning. Some people are over-the-moon happy and some people are beyond pissed.

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/03/22/obama-to-sign-health-care-bill-tuesday/

I’m very interested in what everyone thinks about this. Have an opinion? Email me at thedailycraic.wordpress@gmail.com and I will feature some answers later this week.

On a different note, apparently a woman in Hooksett, N.H. was attacked by a man wearing only a G-string and a mask. Pretty creative and heinous all at the same time. I’ll probably have nightmares about this tonight, it sounds even scarier than a Komodo Dragon.
