One Liners - Just Catching You Up in 15-30 Second Snippets

Bookmark and Share

Because I am so busy, I want to catch up with one-liner snippets of my life and thoughts. Lucky you!

I am really busy this summer and that makes it REALLY hard for me to blog.  And, of all the things I do in my life, my work life, I enjoy sharing my personal life the most; therefore it is sad that I don't get the chance to do it more often.


Here we go...
I cracked my Google Nexus S phone screen
I am pathetic person. I wake up in the morning and I grab the phone. Normally, it takes me 15-30 minutes to wake up, and as that is happening, I read my social sites and posts. I then get up, head to the bathroom and as I brush my teeth, I keep my twitter stream going so I can read tweets & the news while I brush my teeth.  If my phone were water proof, I would take it in the shower. I have answered calls from the shower and thought it was perfectly acceptable. I figured the client/friend/vendor would see how serious I am about my work if I was willing to speak to them while I was in the shower. It is crazy, I see this. I just don't care, I like being connected.

A few weeks back, I reached for the phone and it smashed on my marble floor (like it had so many times before) but this time the screen shattered. Previous to my phone cracking, I always thought people with cracked screens were so ghetto - now that I've joined them, I don't feel that way anymore.

Black foot tribe
Recently, I was in Vegas with Katie and Greg Sweet. As we were walking through the mall at Caesar's, Greg points out a girl and says, "black foot tribe".  I was confused.  They then explained to me that the black foot tribe was what they called the women who take off their shoes in the casinos and walk through with BARE FEET.  (Gross!)  Get it, BLACK FOOT TRIBE.

My big event for September
I promised not to talk about work-related stuff here, on my PERSONAL blog but it has consumed SO MUCH of my time that it is important I mention the "event".  If you want to know more about it, I can tell you this:

  • Super fun
  • Did it last year
  • You use social media
  • You run around
  • You win awesome prizes

I've been busy loving my life.
I am just really happy that it is summer and I try to spend as much time as I can outside!

My block

I visited with my friends kids and played Barbies with the four year old. 
My friends have four kids (fifth on the way), they live in the West Loop in a giant loft.  I was hanging out on their 1500 square foot deck and playing Barbies with their kids. 

Barbie is SO Inappropriate!

My friend Kerri left town and I had drinks with a group of girls to send her off. 
I love Kerri, she brought joy into my life and I was sad to see her go.  She was very genuine and cool.
