capture the flag [25 May 2006|10:51pm]
[ mood | awake ]

i should be asleep instead of this. but i'm kind of reved up about tomorrow. i have a hearing down in san jose first thing in the morning but then i fly out to new york mid-afternoon. i'm going straight from the airport to a party at joe's in brooklyn, where several of my favoritest people ever will be awaiting my arrival, ready to hand me a cocktail and give me a big hug the moment i walk through the door.

saturday, i have double baby-shower duty. i am going to joe's sister's baby shower (she recently had twin boys who seem adorable from all the pictures joe keeps sending me from his phone.) she didn't have a shower before they were born because she was bed-ridden for 9 weeks. that's going to come back to haunt those boys, i have a feeling... anyway, i will get to hang with babies patrick and liam, and i will also get to see joe's grandmother, who i seriously think loves me more than anyone in the world, for no apparent reason:) then i will head out east for my own sister's baby shower. i admit i'm a bit nervous to see her, since the last time i saw her she was just my baby sister... and now she's going to have a ginormous tummy growing a human inside. crazy!!

anyway, i'm excited. i've been missing new york alot recently. it's only going to be a couple of days, so i'm sure i won't get it totally out of my system, but it will be a much needed visit.

have a fun memorial day weekend everyone:)

free stuff [10 Apr 2006|02:09pm]
does anyone need a tv stand? i'm getting rid of mine. it's sturdy and black and i got it at target about 2 years ago. it's not fancy, but it works. let me know if you want it and i'll save it for you. otherwise it's going up on craiglist tomorrow.

the lawyer of seville [28 Mar 2006|11:29pm]
i love sevilla. it´s one of the prettiest towns i´ve ever seen. plus it´s hot here. i miss being hot sometimes. i´ve done many awesome things, but the best was sitting under the orange trees in the plaza listening to children play in the fountain. i heart vacation.

no rain yet [27 Mar 2006|01:00pm]
i´m chillin´in the hotel lobby in barcelona right now. we´ll be on the plane to sevilla in a moment. so i don´t have time for a full blown update, so this is just a quick note to say i´m alive and safe and happy. i live vacation but i don´t think i could live in españa. it would require me to embrace a few things i am not ready to embrace. number one on that list - girl mullets. big time.

water, so much water [21 Mar 2006|07:56pm]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

i've been so busy lately i've hardly had a chance to sit around on sir leatherton the comfy (my couch). sigh. but i did get to see jill for a quick lunch today and i talked to my sister who is now in her 6th month of being all preggers and i still haven't seen her belly which makes me sad. i made her promise me some pictures. i wanna see that belly!!

tonight i am going to see the new pornographers and belle & sebastain. yay.

tomorrow i am going to do 100,000,000 tasks at work and buy an iPod charger and also and ac/dc adaptor and also finish packing and also write down everyone's addresses so i can send postcards (everyone who wants them should email me their addresses cos i might not have time for this!) and then i will wake up at the ass crack of dawn and go to the airport and then i will be in spain.

i must say i am having a hard time with the fact that i am not getting on a plane to new york. that is really where i should be going. for the last 3 years in a row, during this week, i went back to new york for the birthdays of three of my favorite peoples - first wick's, then miriam's, then missy's. it usually started with a limo and ended with a feast. sometimes there was some horsey-making out and puking in between. but it was always my favorite week.

while i am sure that spain will be pretty cool, not much can compare to being with the people i love to help celebrate the fact that they were born.

one moment in time [17 Mar 2006|09:09am]
[ mood | FRANTIC ]

i'm going to spain in less than a week. i have a billion things to do at work, and in my life, before i go. i can't breathe. i miss you all.

big news: my brother, bruce, is moving to santa cruz!!! i'm super excited to have another bailey on the west coast. he's going to be staying with me this weekend, so if anyone wants to rock it bailey style, call me:) (i'll probably be at work, but i'm pretending for now that i will have some time to play this weekend).

other big news: i've lost 10 pounds since joining weight watchers. hip hip hooray:)

ok bye.

baggage [15 Mar 2006|01:35pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

i'm going to spain in a week. i'm flippin' excited. however, i realize i am missing some essential items, the most important one being the right kind of luggage. i own one carry on rolly-suitcase and then one super-gigantic rolly-suitcase. i need something in between, good for 1 week's worth of clothes, shoes and toiletries. i don't want to buy something new b/c i doubt i need it for more than this one trip... so...

anyone have a medium-sized suitcase (on wheels) i could borrow until april?

let me know - thanks peeps!!

home sweet home [10 Mar 2006|02:32pm]
[ mood | groggy ]

i'm home. i feel yucky. my internal clock is all wonky and i'm dehydrated and nauseated. the flight home was harrowing.

anyway, i'm going to try to pull myself together, and hopefully i'll feel more chipper in a few hours.

happy news [09 Mar 2006|06:15pm]
[ mood | happy ]

i get get to leave cleveland tomorrow morning, as planned. so i will be back in SF in time for the snow storm (huh??) that is supposed to be gunning for our fair town.

this is awesome because it means i can work tomorrow afternoon, and probably won't have to go in to work over the weekend. it will be like a mini-vacation:) hoorah. and, since i'm supposed to be defending depositions next week, they aren't going to fly me back here for more doc review (though the time for that may come. but at least it won't come before i go to spain. sweet.

i am going to have one last opportunity for breakfast in bed tomorrow... though it will be stoopid early.

[ mood | apathetic ]

i still haven't gone outside. friggin odd. let me know if i can pick anything up for you all in clevland. they seem to have a lot of cheap "gold" jewelry here.

i might have to come back again next week. it will be determined tonight. hopefully we can just send a team of paralegals, but i may have to come supervise. blah. but i must admit i *do* like room service. breakfast in bed almost compensates.

outside [08 Mar 2006|02:24pm]
[ mood | tired ]

so far the only time i've been outside in cleveland is stepping from the cab into the hotel. the hotel is connected to the building where i'm doing doc review, so i didn't have to go outside at all to get there or back. instead i had to go through a mall. ohio, man.

looks like i have to stay longer than expected... though i should still get home some time friday night. sigh.

this is how canadians must feel [06 Mar 2006|10:35am]
[ mood | tired ]

i've decided it's impossible to catch up on livejournal. on reading ya'll's posts or on writing my own in a way that could possible do justice to the past few weeks. i am so tired today. i finally came down off my sparks plus high that lasted until last night around 9pm. the exhuastion hit me when matt pond got on stage.

many good things happened this weekend. rashi was here and is probably going to move to sf in june. the sharon/katie/ian/john housewarming party was really warm and cute and fun. so good to see everyone, and made me have apartment envy, even though i love my apartment. then we went dancing at the elbo room for soul night, which was way crowded but cool. arjuna ended up coming from the party and meeting up with me, rashi, rick, amanda and colin... then we all went back to my house and stayed up until 5am playing games, except arjuna who slept like the dead on my couch while we were playing. i slept FAST (b/c of the sparks plus, i only needed 3 hours of sleep apparently) and then we all went for brunch. then the rain happened and i didn't do anything for many hours. then i met up with lindsay and we went and saw matt pond. i hung out with him a lil' bit after the show - the band hadn't slept in days b/c they had to drive through the night (and a SNOW storm) to get here from portland. he seemed even more tired than me, so i didn't feel as bad. the show was really good, so it was worth going in spite of the rain and my tired soul.

so, that's some of the things that happened. there's more things but i forget. tomorrow i am going to cleveland for work. i'll be there til friday. so either i'll be onl ivejournal all the time because i'll be bored and lonely, or i'll be working so much that i will blink and it will be the weekend again. i hope it's the second one. i don't want to be bored in cleveland. eww.

look for me [27 Feb 2006|09:17pm]
[ mood | pleased ]

this past week, after joe left, i was busier than i've been... well, since i can remember. work has been amazingly good. i am feeling more and more like an integrated part of the IP litigation team. they are trusting me with some truly challenging projects and as much responsibility as i can take on. in two weeks i will be defending depositions. (by way of background, in most firms you wouldn't do this before your second year, but here i am just 6 months in getting this opportunity). plus i'm going to cleveland to do doc review (yuck) and help prep for the depositions the rest of the team will be taking. kind of weird to go to cleveland 2x in one winter. i imagine that things are going to stay real busy until i go to spain at the end of march. anyway, in case i don't talk to anyone for a while - it's not personal. i'm just a wee workin' gal.

also, i am seeing matt pond on sunday. i find this pretty hilarious. i wonder if he'd be mad if i request him to do his cover of "wonderwall" from the oc soundtrack. heh.

[ mood | annoyed ]

i'm so annoyed right now. i had this brilliant plan to go to the gym after work today. i thought it stayed open late on saturdays, but no. closed at 8pm. so now i am done with work and have no plans for the night and no wayt o get out all this pent up energy i have from a week of sitting on my ass at my desk 14 hours a day. crap.

i guess i'll go home, make mix CDs, take a bath, drink wine and just chillax. actually, that doesn't sound like a bad night at all. plus, it gives me a chance to listen to the 2 new CDs i bought today - the new b&s and the arctic monkeys.
