To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are so many reasons why this week ROCKED...

  • I took my soul back from The Man and came into work AFTER 9 AM for 3 days in a row.

  • I didn't lose my keys (or my mind) all week.

  • Robin had a mental breakdown while watching the Joy Luck Club (which made me laugh).

  • The new fall shows started.

  • The Man gave me tickets to see Justin Timberlake.

  • My mom bought me towels from Pottery Barn.

  • I got to see McSteamy and McDreamy on T.V. because the new fall shows started (although, is it just me or does everyone else feel like they got Punk'd, so NOT a great episode of Grey's).

  • The Man washed my car, even though it's going to rain in like 10 minutes.

  • My sisters and I solidified our trip to NYC to see Adam's family.

  • I got to talk to my BFF in Hawaii (twice)!

  • The new fall shows started.

  • We won $6 million dollars worth of work in one week!

  • No one told me about their hemorrhoids at work (or outside of work either).

  • The new fall shows started AND we still have TiVo.

  • It's about to rain, which means that I get to wear my darling white coat with the black buttons. (And, I guess it's also good because apparently we NEED rain in So Cal).

  • I got to see Wentworth Miller again, because the new fall shows started.

  • Ralphs had a sale on Diet Coke.

  • It's fall! I love fall! (And, not just because of the new shows, and the darling Peacoat - the white one, with the black buttons) I just want to find a mountain or kick up some leaves or something, in a Sound of Music type fashion (but, with WAY better clothes, for sure!).

  • There was a special double issue of People Magazine.

  • The new fall shows started. And, there is a new show called Gossip Girl (which Cori delightfully TiVoed - because as much as I love TiVo, I still don't really know how to work it).

  • Cameron Sawyer had a birthday, so I got to have cupcakes!

  • I started training for the 1/2 and full marathon - which makes me feel like a SuperHero (except for the fact that I am a bit more jiggly than the quintessential SuperHero)
  • But, the best part of all of it was that Matt White FINALLY came out with his CD! I NEVER thought it would happen, Cori and I have been stalking him (over the internet) since his album was supposed to come out in February. Robin started stalking him in mid-June. And, now we are all so happy... it's here and it's FAB!

Here are the top 10 songs (in no particular order) this Friday the 21st... (according to moi)... I have been listening to these non-stop. Download them if you don't have them. They are DIVINE:

1.) Dance Floor Anthem (I Don't Want To Be In Love) - Good Charlotte - It's so Good!

2.) Love - Matt White - Best Song Ever!

--- Does anyone else think he looks like Nate Usher a little bit? ---

3.) Bubbly - Colbie Colliat - So cute!

4.) Her Eyes - Pat Monahan (His album came out this week too, it's FAB!)

5.) The Best Days - Matt White - FAB!

6.) Almost Midnight - Pat Monahan -This song has such good lyrics.

7.) Feelings Show - Colbie Colliat

8.) Playin' with the Boys - Kenny Loggins - We watched Top Gun this week, for entertainment and educational purposes and this song is awesome, plus Kenny Loggins sings is with makes it twice as RAD... so I downloaded it and it's fun to run to!

9.) Two Ways To Say Goodbye - Pat Monahan

10.) The Way I Are (oh that so hurts my Ears) ..."I Ain't Got No Money" - Timbaland - I have no earthly idea why I like it, it's more like I have had it stuck in my head since the J.T. Concert. So, maybe you shouldn't listen to it. It's sort of like my fixation with "Party Like a Rockstar" in Vegas.

I forgot to tell you about my hemorrhoids this week. Crap.

P.S. I think you should be mailing me a mixed C.D. very soon. I really miss you making sweet compact discs.

What a week! I have to get that play list... Kenny Loggins is always a good one to add to your "life's soundtrack". He did after all sing the theme song for The Last Unicorn!

The Volleyball scene in Top Gun where they play "Playin' with the Boys" has o be the most homo-erotic scene in movie history.
