August

Ok - So after this week's freak out - ive decided that its time to get my ass in gear and get back to what i planned ohh....2 months ago.

I havent even TOUCHED a book....ive been working out 1 day a week instead of 5....ive been eating cupcakes (although, it seems to be the theme of this summer and everyone is blogging cupcakes!!! so i dont feel so bad about that one.) I havent taken one road trip....etc...etc...etc...It was supposed to be the summer of PP...and so far, it SUCKS. Except I have a really nice tan.

I even put off the new guy - and explained that if he didnt want to wait, that there would be other hot doctors around. (not so much in those words...but i dont plan on hearing from him ever again...)

I do realize that its August 6 already but better late than never.

One thing i DID do - was go to Harry Potter Exhibit at the Science Center. This has been on my "To Do" list since April. If you are a fan of the movies, this exhibit was amazing!!! There were so many movie props, they recreated Hagrid's hut, and had an exact full size replica of the entrance to the Great Hall with all the Decrees on it from the 5th movie! I try to buy the exhibit book if something I go to was REALLY great, to have it as a momento. I definitely bought this one. (The only exhibit that I went to, that I never found an exhibit book for was the Clash exhibit at the rock and roll hall of fame a couple of years ago...)

On another aside - My family has been talking about going to Florida for my birthday this year - now i usually go to Vegas with a friend of mine to celebrate both of our birthdays, but shes busy this year, and my family was talking about Florida. I have been asking when, so that i could book the time off work - but no one could seem to get themselves organized.

I open my email the other day, to find a ticket confirmation. I'll be in orlando from the 29th of October until the 5th of November. Halloween night at Universal afterhours??? YES PLEASE. Harry Potter theme Park??? YES PLEASE!!! Florida on mom and dad's tab??? YES PLEASE!

So...things arent ALL bad. But Florida in 3 months? Im done with the cupcakes....at least until i get back.

At least by then you will be ready for some sun.

I never pegged you as a Harry Potter girl - very intriguing. I haven't read any of the books or seen any of the movies

Princess Pessimism said...

Berly - I'll post lots of pictures.

Rawbean - I KNOW!!! But i am - although not one of "THOSE" fans. I went to a Chapters the night of the last book, and there were so many people in costumes, and just so many people in general, I had to leave...i was sort of freaked out.

That's probably the best time to go to Florida. Not too hot like in the summer and not too filled up with snowbirds like in the winter.

Princess Pessimism said...

WIGSF - yea - and all those douchebags who live there are working....So i'll be fairly content i think. ESPECIALLY since halloween is a sunday and everyone works Monday! yay to working for everyone else.

Miss Ash said...

Oh god....that's for Harry Potter....

and mmmmmmmmm to cupcakes!!!

Christielli said...

I NEED to go to that exhibit before the end of the summer.

I'm sort of with you on the summer goals - not as much reading, exercise, and healthy eating as I'd planned. However, there's no better day than Monday to start with that, I say. (That's 'cuz that's when I'm back from vacation.)

Princess Pessimism said...

Miss - Oh pipe down. Lets not mention your "BOY BAND" days ok? LOL

Christielli - OMG you have to go soon! That exhibit ends in like 2 weeks...

Lindsey said...

I keep procrastinating on my Todo list too. Sigh. It's just so much easier to do nothing! :o) And why eat healthy when I can order from the pizza place up the street and not have to worry about meal planning? Lol.

Sigh. When I get back from vacation...promise.

Have fun in Florida. Jess' sister lives there so we visit whenever we get a chance. Never been to any of the theme parks though. Jess isn't too big a fan. Sigh. Good thing for him I married him for his looks. :o)

Regarding my detective work last year....Miss Ash doesn't even know this but there is a child and wife/girlfriend involved in that mix! Whoah! Yea I'm that good.

Your summer sounds similar to mine, cuz I haven't done anything I was supposed to either. I love summer, but this is the worst one yet. I can't believe I'm almost looking forward to fall. (I don't even like fall.)
