crazy goings-on, indeed! so a good friend of mine's car was stolen last night from her very apartment complex. the ironic part? the cops found it parked in same complex. apparently the car had minimal gas in the tank and our favorite thieves just didn't get very far. serves 'em right, no? so in their bustle of what i presume would be feeling cheated, they made sure to swipe as much as they could from within the car. luckily she had mounds of junk but little of any value. they left most of it and took a few random things.
and i have concluded that i love leslie's cats. all three of them. they're a great trio, those little buggers. they've each got thier own personality ranging from adorably skittish to forcefully loving. now, what makes them even more endearing is the fact that i'm not allergic to any one of them!!! thank the heavens above, for this little girl can be deathly allergic to cats. and on that note, i think there's a bit of kitten in leslie herself. her movements are very feline (most likely due to the fact that she practices yoga everyday and has taken a body movement class that brings her in tune with her body), and even drives a fiesty little cougar. makes me feel like a big bull (ha!) dog.
so yesterday, my boss at the auditing office decides to get a rise out of me. i'm on the phone trying to convince this lady of something (under one of my five different pseudo-names, mind you.) and from out of nowhere he yells "she's lying! she's not really [insert the fake name here] and she doesn't work for [insert fake company here]!!! don't listen to her!!!" i can't help myself from busting a gut and have to put her on hold for a good few minutes to compose myself. what's a girl to do?
go back to reading her books, i suppose. i just finished reading:
beautifully written book, more or less about "London Above,""London Below," and a man named Richard Mayhew. two nice quotes for you to feast on:Richard:
(referring to submitting to torture)"Don't do it. Don't set it free. We don't matter."
Marquis de Carabas: "Actually, I matter very much. But I have to agree. Don't do it."
"Richard had noticed that events were cowards: they didn't occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once."
i'm also immersed in:
i will leave you with this: disturbingly mesmerizing.
and on a cheesier note, i saw AVP. wanted to see it for the effects and nostalgia, ended up quite pumped over it. for a tacky action-thriller, "it done good." and hey, it was even sprinkled with bits of bishop.
and on a not-so-cheesy note, this weekend i had the best filet mignon...ever. succulent to the bone, it was.
