Today was an awesome day! I woke up and went to the gym which put me in a good mood for the rest of the day. Work was great, as usual. Actually, the more I thought about it today the more I decided that this “work” doesn’t feel like work. I enjoy it so much and it’s cool to see things I’ve learned put into practice. There are a few little projects I’m working on. One involves finding events (women related, preferibly) going on around the world to put in the “Advance Notice” section, and the other is finding products, books, travel tips, etc. for the “Travelgirl Alley” section. ….I might MIGHT actually get to write a few of those for the next issue – I don’t know for sure, so I don’t wanna get my hopes up yet. !!OH!! I’ve read several of the artcles for the next issue (we’re working on the September/October issue now) and the articles are all so good!!! Plus, the covergirl migtht be someone really cool too. If it’s who I think it is then I’m going to see if there’s any possible way I can go to the interview…it would be awesome. Anyway, I just did more copy editing and looking things up online that could go in the mag and opened some mail.
After work I had to go shopping…but first I decided to window shop a little bit at the very very very nice mall thely have here. Lenox Square Mall reminds me of a mall that would be in the O.C. Everybody in the mall could have been somebody famous – no joke. When I pulled up to park I was wedged in between a BMW and a Mercedes. Across from me were two limos…
All of the African-American guys I saw could have been a rapper or some famous basketball player; I’ve never seen so much “Bling” in real life! I also haven’t seen so much leg in real life…Let me explain. I saw some of the tallest, skinniest African-American women that i’ve ever seen outside of fashion magazines. These girls were wearing stilettos and shorts that barely covered their frame, but they did all this very tastefully. It was just weird to see legs on a woman that probably came up to my chest!
The white people there also dressed the movie star part; I kept looking at everyone’s face just hoping I’d recognize someone! heh, it was pretty crazy!!
After my adventure at the mall I went real grocery shopping and actually had a good time talking to random people at the store. One lady helped me pick out Sushi and the another wanted to know all about New Mexico! Hopefully I’ll bring some of the friendliness they have out here back home with me.
Hang with me a few minutes longer…
So I did the shopping and came home and decided to call it a night. I felt kinda like Bridget Jones for what I did next. Heh, I got my sushi and miniature bottle of Pinot Grigio and popped in the “Say Anything” DVD I bought a few weeks ago. Perfect! Good food, good wine and a damn good movie – can’t go wrong with John Cusack!
And THAT, my friends, was my day. I don’t know what I’m doing this weekend, but I’m already looking forward to it!
