Awkward & Awesome Thursday

--I saw a note on my desk today that said "Email TG."  I immediately thought, "Why do I have to email Teresa Guidice?"  Then I realized "TG" was not referring to the infamous housewife from New Jersey but to one of the partners I work for.  You've reached a whole 'nother level of reality TV viewing when a set of initials makes you think of a Real Housewife before your own co-workers!!
--Speaking of offices, I sat still for so long yesterday the lights in my office turned themselves off.  I started waving my arms like a mad woman trying to activate the motion sensors and as I did, a couple of the partners walked by.  Wonder what they think I was doing?  Some kind of dance maybe?  Like the I-really-need-to-get-out-of-the-office-sometimes-because-I'm-too-awkward-for-confined-spaces dance?
--I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  Don't send personal emails from your work account!!  I'm doing another doc review assignment and after hundreds of documents about boring stuff, I came across a juicy one that started "Holla Girl!!!"  I was intrigued...  I read on...  These were not amorous like the last bunch, but they were still very entertaining.  The two friends gave each other posing tips for sexy photo shoots and gossiped about an old friend that got a little too chubby recently.  Made the afternoon much more interesting.  Then I had to go and Google these chicks.  That's when things got Awkward.  Now I have a face to go with that sexy posing tip.
--I think I killed a bird.  I was driving to San Francisco last week and all of a sudden a white fuzzy blurb thumped into the front of my car.  (Pretty sure it was flapping some wings...)  I say I think I killed a bird because when I got to The Boyfriend's, I checked the bumper and found no signs of feathers or other birdy stuff.  That's a good sign, right?  Maybe it wasn't a living creature I hit?

--About a month ago, I gave up sweets and desserts until my friend's wedding on July 9.  Giving up sweets and desserts is definitely not awesome, but the side effects totally are.  I've lost 3 lbs.!!!  Not too shabby.
--Molly has had the run of the apartment lately.  She loves galloping up and down the long hallway (it really does look like a gallop - a little guinea pig gallop).  But being the social creature that she is, she doesn't like to be left alone in a room.  She's like The Little Mermaid - she wants to be where the people are.  So she's taken to following me all around the apartment.  If I go in the bedroom to put away laundry, she's running right behind me.  When I finish and return to the living room, there she is again.  She's my little shadow!  When I finally settle in a room, Molly lounges underneath whatever furniture is nearby.  She kicks her feet out like a little frog and flattens herself onto the floor.  It's one of the cutest things in the world.  Fact.
--After starting the week out gray, cold, and rainy, it's finally feeling like summer.  It's supposed to get into the mid-80s this weekend so The Boyfriend and I are planning a relaxing, romantic picnic in the park on Saturday (hence the photo above).  Awesome indeed. :)

Molly chillin' flat like a pancake



  1. Hi Stephanie :) I've recently followed your blog via Google Friend Connect. But it was only today, after clicking your 'About' page that I learned and was pleasantly surprised to learn that you're also a lawyer like me :) It's so nice to see female lawyers who are actively blogging and engaging their creativity :) I wish you all the best :)

  2. This could just be one of the cutest and funniest posts! I love your work stories. It's right out of a Seinfeld sitcom! I used to love watching N.Y. housewives until Bethanny left.

    p.s. Molly looks so cute. I think it's a nice change from a dog or a cat.

    Now following you. Hope you will follow me too!
    Rambles with Reese

    oops...almost forgot to say I live in southern Italy in the region of Puglia.

  3. That is so funny you got free 'photo posing' sexy tips! Some people really do need to be censored at work! haha

  4. the image of you flapping your arms around in your office is awesome. and when my husband is out of town for work, my dog totally follows me around like i'm going to leave him too.

  5. I get to read peoples' medical records all the time at work and it always makes me giggle (I know I probably shouldn't admit that...but some stuff is bizaare) LOL I bet you read some good stuff!!
    Also...I'm with you on the bird hitting! The other day I hit an enormous goose...flew right into my windshield! It was crazy!

  6. Bahaha! I love that you let your guinea pig roam. Luckiest little pig in the world.

    I can't decide if I'm on Teresa's side or her brothers...

  7. Loved the awkwards and the awesomes. I had no idea that guinea pigs were so dog-like in their desire to be with you. kinda warms my heart. And what a little cutie.

  8. OMG Molly is too cute! That's too funny about the sexy poses.

  9. I love that there's gratitude and folly here. It's a great balance! I'm a fan :)
