I see London, I see France

Hey duders,

I need to keep up with my blog more in the new year. Let's add it to the list of resolutions, k? K, done.

So I have been what some would call a "globetrotter" these past couple of weeks. It may seem frivolous the amount of time and money I have given up for these experiences, but the way I see it - I don't own an expensive car, fancy schmancy clothes, or an iPhone, so I think I can afford it. Plus my rent is dirt cheap and I'm living in 50 degree conditions.

Dec. 28th - Jan. 5th: London, England and Paris, France
This was a little tripsy to go see a very very dear friend. The kid jumped town after graduating from Pitt. We saw all the predictable sights (Parliament, Big Ben (Roethlisberger), Tower of London, London Bridge (terrible bridge), and the British Museum). Our pal was a great host and his Europop friends were awesome. We brought in the New Year at a chic bar called "Bedroom" with an Indian/Sex theme and the alcohol and champagne flowed like water. Needless to say, in typical Jamie fashion, I was running my mouth and making a fool of myself... how else to start a new year!? Flashback to last year:

Jamie: "Gary! Gary! Gary, you think I'm drunk! Give me an integral, I'll solve it!!
Gary (Craig's father): "I don't even know what an integral is, calm down."

Anyway, we stopped by Paris for 2 days and saw the Eiffler, Lourververevre (or however its spelled), Arc d'Triumph, Champs Elysees, and blurreee blauaau bleu (that's "blah, blah, blah" in a French accent). Paris was beautiful, but the people... kinda douche bags. Douche is french afterall, isn't it? Don't answer that. I don't care.

I rode the New York subway, the London Underground, the Paris Metro, and a Greyhound all in a matter of 6 days... WOW! Greyhound was the best, naturally. Have I ever shared my Greyhound experiences via blog??? We'll save that for a Jamie Neutron Exclusive.

And most recently, I just returned from fabulous Las Vegas with the siblings (minus Micky, the youngin' who is Barack-ing out in DC). We went to celebrate Alyssa's 21st, Carolyn's 30th, and James' 27th. Needless to say, it was a shitshow and I loved every minute of it. Vegas is phenomenal, I love it... the raunchiness, the desperation, the buffets. It's my happy place.

And how bout dem Stillers?? I made a bet with myself in Vegas (well actually I made a lot of bets, but this one is legit) that if the Eagles didn't clench this SuperBowl, which they didn't, I would officially become a PRIMARY Steelers fan.


Take a breath and listen to my logic -
1. I have been an Eagles fan for 22 years and NEVER seen a Super Bowl win
2. I know its not about winning, but let's face it, I'm tired of being let down
3. Any person would agree that when you've stopped getting enjoyment from a relationship, it's time to cut ties
4. I have lived in Pittsburgh for 6 years and will now see 2 Super Bowl games!
5. Plus I grew out of my McNabb jersey

So all I have to say is.... HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!!!!

One of those days

Do you ever have one of those days where everything is just so annoying. Like every little thing plays on your last nerve. Well that's me today. I'm not grumpy or in a bad mood its just like "WTF" moments keep happening.

- My dumb ass MacBook was frozen for a day and a half and I could see things updating so it was alive, but I couldn't operate the mouse pad or keyboard. I took it to the Apple store and
- Got a parking pass valid for 1 hour but had to wait in line for 45 minutes and ended up getting a ticket. At least AppleCare covered the problem with my Book and they replaced the battery free of charge
- It wasn't really free though since I got that ticket.
- And did some interim shopping at Victoria's Secret.
- My house is freezing since Craig and I have resorted to corporal punishment to cut down on the gas bill, hence when I was enjoying my lunch of spaghetti, I got sauce all over my new scarf which was keeping me warm.
- I went to the library to rent a textbook so I could do my Stats HW without buying the book but it was checked out. Guess till when? APRIL.
- I had to come into Benedum to work on my homework since I don't want to spend $80 on the software I need, but of course the computer I chose to settle into (bring out all my supplies, plug in iPod, remove shoes) is the only PC that the program wasn't installed on
- I gathered my belongings and changed rooms, no biggie, but my dumb new backpack's velcro attached to my sweater and when I dropped my backpack it yanked my sweater and pulled my earbuds out and I wailed a silent yell.

All of these problems are resorting from my being cheap, I've noticed.

It's just lousy, ya know? But I'm still cheery for the most part. Oh, nice, there's a class in this room and I have to leave now. Wonderful.

The End of the Beginning

OK, be warned, you are about to read a MeganBoerio-esque blog where I plan to pour my bleeding heart out on this digital canvas of sorrow. In my own witty, bullshit way of course.

I have come to realize that while all fun and fancy free life has been up to now, it's very very quickly approaching a change. And NO this is NOT THE CHANGE WE NEED!

A New Year's list -
People I love who may be leaving me soon:
1. Craig
2. LP
3. Vedururu
4. MeganBoerio

What the hell is to become of me?!? These people have made me, they are my besties, and now I'm without.

I know what you're thinking, "Ok, Lady Drama, chill out." Ok, I'll chill out. I mean, how exciting it's going to be to live alone and pay a full gas bill, and get a cat that I can talk to every night, and play Rock Band alone, and drink PBR alone in my living room with no furniture cause Craig took it all, and hang out with Dallas all the time (hehehe just kidding!)

Ugh, this is terrible. I'm going to Chipotle....

A song to lift my spirits: Easy/Lucky/Free by Bright Eyes:

"Honey, don't you weep...
Don't you weep...
There is nothing
as lucky,
as easy,
or free."
