Happy Monday! I finally splurged over the weekend and did something I've wanted for awhile. I was supposed to get it over Christmas with one of my good friends from home but time ran out. Now, however, I finally just took the plunge and I love, love, love it. I couldn't have asked for better placement, and I feel like it's something I've always had, which I always use as a good gauge for whether a decision was worthwhile. Now, let the workweek start off smoothly and I'll feel sparkly all over!

Sorry I've been so MIA of this little blog and you, my two readers! These layoffs are truly taking a toll at work and I've been slammed as the standard amount of work is now being spread around two less people within our little department. Thus, please know I am not abandoning you and intentionally taking from you tales of my ever-exciting New York life (HA!), I am simply running out of time to post daily...and the need for a computer at home seems all the more dominant, hm? ;) I hope everyone's Tuesday goes swimmingly and I will be back to post as soon as I am able!

I have to admit to you, even with everything swirling around Facebook yesterday (and continuing on today) and so many sites down with descriptions on the how and the way of the reasons behind the lack-of-access, I really am not sure what these two Acts are threatening to do/remove/affect in the states.... I know, I'm an awful blogger. But I'm going to try to do some research...

PS - Like how my random posts about working out are interspersed with random posts about my absolute adoration for chocolate and sugar? Yeah, me too. That's why odds are good I will never look like Jamie Eason, because life is just too short.

One of my first roommates from New York and I met up this past weekend for brunch, and happened to have an empty table next to us at which two visitors from Australia sat. My former roommate, being a congenial sort of person, struck up a conversation with them, I joined in, and lo and behold, two insta-friends were made, an incredible few days were spent with them, and I was able to see this city and all the great things people can bring with them, with new sets of eyes. Do I now want to visit Australia? Oh yes, definitely. And I've been lucky enough to have made friends from the Land Down Under previously in my life, so that says something about this visiting duo, eh? Is it beyond lovely to not only have made great memories this past weekend but have made friends that will (hopefully, with proper tending and attention paid) last into the future? Yes, yes, and yes again.
It's funny now a chance meeting can make the world seem new again, and possibilities seem endless and exciting. But I guess that's what life gives you when you're open to whatever comes your way.
