TGIF! Yesterday felt like Friday, which you know is never a good thing. Then this morning I was confused about why I was getting up so early because I thought it was Saturday. But I've adjusted, and now that the work week is coming to an end, I'm going to reflect on a few highlights:

  • I found out yesterday that Justin has been playing a prank on me for several weeks that I only finally figured out yesterday. He's been sticking these post its, as pictured, in strategic places such as: journals I've been working on, my tape dispenser, my desk, etc... I, being the very unobservant person that I am, didn't realize it was him. I just thought I must have put them there myself - although I don't even own that style of post it - and that I forgot about it. It's Justin's own sweet brand of psychological torture.

  • I went out to dinner with Monica and Christi and got to watch Christi struggle with chop sticks. I think she might need some of these:
  • I went out to dinner with my sisters and my cousin Julie and got caught up on some very juicy family secrets from Julie. Wow, I had no idea what was going on with my extended family growing up! I think I'm up to speed now. Or at least I hope there's nothing more to find out! And I got to play with my adorable niece, Samantha. I don't often get to give her my undivided attention because her sister, Paige, doesn't like sharing the spotlight. She takes after her aunt that way. (I know you think I'm talking about myself but I'm actually referring to Katherine.)

  • I went on a great bike ride with Sarah. Sarah and I have been friends forever and I'm so glad that we've stayed close all these years. In fact, I'm going to post some great pics of she and I together in high school soon - I found them this week and they're hilarious. Because she is one of my oldest and dearest friends, I have to ask you to please not ask her to tell you any embarrassing stories about me because trust me, she has tonz (so many I had to use a z, not an s).

  • I hung out with Janice last night and realized once again how much I miss hanging out with her.
  • I finally got "Midnight at the Oasis" out of my head. It was replaced with the theme song to "Sister Sister" but oh well.

  • We had a farewell party for our summer interns yesterday. This included pizza, brownies, and bonding. I actually didn't talk to our summer interns more than maybe one time all summer. But they did a lot of work for us so I will miss them!

And now it's Friday. And tomorrow is Saturday, which means: bonfire! Pray it doesn't rain! But if it does, we're going to move the party inside. So come anyway!

I hung out with your sister today and little samantha. She was glad that I had already been broken-in to the Downie humor so that she doesn't have to say stuff like, "i'm just kidding, i would never [insert horrible action]." Loved it. Your blog was a hot topic, too. the end.

Was there a request for embarrassing stories about Elizabeth? I'm SO happy to oblige! Should I start with the one that involves slow motion projectile apple juice in the cafeteria?? :) Or, I can provide some quotes from notes in high school to make her blush. :) Or...gosh, I could go on and on. Altho, I'll mind my manners...Elizabeth has an equal stash of stories about me, too! :) And, apparently, a stash of photos...I'm a wee bit excited to see how ridiculous I look! :)

Katherine said...

You know, Elizabeth, just because I'm so amazing and wonderful that everyone naturally pays me more attention doesn't mean you have to act like I'm an attention hog... It's a hard role to have, but I'm happy to take it on.

Elizabeth Downie said...

Hahaha, I should clarify that the projectile apple juice was coming from someone else, but unfortunately, heading right to me. And let me tell you, it really did seem to be happening in slow motion. That memory still haunts me. HEY, maybe I can tell that one around the bonfire! lol I have to thank you for not sharing any quotes from high school!! :)

And Katherine, I didn't realize what a burden you carried. That must be very difficult for you. I'm sure it makes it easier for you to relate to celebrities like Madonna and J Lo. ;)
