-We're so going to see that.

3.25.05 SELF MEDICATING
I feel like glahr. Gllaaaahhhhr. I got sick before I left for Utah, and oddly, a week of hiking and 3a.m. girl-talk sessions kind of made me feel worse. Now my phlegm is abundant and green. I fear that it's a new phlegm-based life form that can draw energy from the sun and overtake the earth. The trip was totally worth it though.

Tomorrow we're off to Vegas, because I hear Ann Margaret has restorative powers. Actually, it's because Bryan is turning 36. (Happy birthday, baby!) So if you notice a mound of green ooze blocking out the sun, that's because weak margaritas, second-hand smoke, and the taint of despair aren't good for my cold either. Sorry about that.

Heather and Heather have been battling it out in the Google rankings for some time now.

HC: I think you're the top Heather right now.
HA: I am?
HC: Yep. It's you, then me. I'm happy as long as we keep the porn stars out of the top slot.

I am sunburned. Heather thinks my Salt Lake City flask is scandalous. You can see the trip photos thus far on my Flickr feed at Maggie Mason. Heather and Heather have photos up as well.

3.17.05 SO EXCITED!
Heather and I are headed to Utah for a much-needed girl vacation. It may be the first time anyone has ever flown into Salt Lake City to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. See you in a bit.

3.16.05 VERY BERRY
We head out for an after-work drink at a martini bar that keeps a slushy machine full of vodka mix. Bryan brings us Very Berry Martinis.

Me: Whoa. That's strong.
Rachel: And sweet.
Me: Just like I like my men.
Rachel: Strong and sweet.
Me: And fruity.

3.7.05 OVERHEARD: FOOL LICENSE
Scenario: Two unclever strangers at the bar in mid-afternoon have a loud conversation across the room from one another. Each would like to impress the cute-girl bartender.

...I can't believe that. It's detestable.
Did you say testicle?
What?
Testicle?
Testimal?
No, testicle.
OH! No. I said detestable.
Ha. I like to say that sometimes. Testicle! Just slip it into the conversation and see if anyone notices.
I have a tendency to pop my head up over the edge of my cube and say, "has anyone seen my hands?" That one really gets 'em.
Huh. That's a good one.
I like to, when I'm coding, you put something in the code that's completely vulgar and disgusting and see if anyone catches it. That way you know if your code got reviewed.
Huh, I've never tried that. That's a good one.
(Vulgar-code-comments guy turns to cute-girl bartender and addresses her in his best announcer voice. She responds.)
Well, it's good to have you two in the bar. I'm Carlo, your host! Come by more often.
Wow. It's not often we have a host.
I'm missing my white suit and plane overhead. And the running midget.
(Brief pause as she ignores him.)
I guess I should get to work drumming up some business for you.
Do. I give you full license.
I'm not fooling anyone.
No. Full. Full license. Like, I give you full authority.
Ohhhh.

3.3.05 APPETITE
The menu reads, "Warm chocolate souffle with Italian wet nuts." Bryan asks for particulars about the wet nuts. "Yeah," the waiter mumbles. "I wish they would change that."

3.01.05 OVERHEARD: IT'LL PASS
Scenario: Two girls chat on the sidewalk.
-What are you up to tonight?
-I have a date.
-With who?
-A guy I met at a party.
-The little guy?
-No, another guy.
-What party did you meet him at?
-Same party as the little guy.
-So you made out with the little guy, and then went home with some other guy's number?
-I'm going through a phase.
