Laziness, Holiday Parties and Photos of Myself

Last weekend, I did not leave the couch except to briefly go see The Muppets movie that my brother, sister in law and everyone on Facebook raved about. I hated it.

It was just trying way too hard to be clever or funny or cute or for-the-adults-too or something. I felt bad for making Andy go see it because I promised him it would be as awesome as everyone said, and as soon as we got home I rented Muppets Take Manhattan on iTunes and made him watch it with me on the iPad just to show him what an actual clever Muppets movie with jokes for adults can be like. After, he said, “The new one was pretty much the same story as that, but not nearly as good.” Exactly.

Anyway, the point of my long winded story is that I basically did not leave the couch all weekend. I didn’t do any work and I didn’t blog. Sundays, in my new Dori life, are for football. I’m still not quite sure how I not only got roped into that, but accepted it and eventually welcomed and looked forward to it. I guess cute boys will do that to you.

Then my Monday and Tuesday work days were so busy and the week went by without a blog post. And by busy I mean I actually did work at work and then after work on Monday I went to Refine and Tuesday morning before work I went to Refine and then randomly ran into my aunt and uncle from new Jersey on the street on my walk back. Because things like that somehow happen and I can never understand how. It felt like a relief in a way. I’m still trying to figure out how to balance my blog with everything else and I want to do shorter posts on non-preset days, but I haven’t had any success at all yet. But here I am today.

Other things in my life recently? Well, remember when I started that new job in August? I had my first company holiday party with them. I’ve been to quite a few company holiday parties in my day. My first one in 2006 was awesome.

   
[Me with Ranman – read his daddy blog! Seeing these makes me miss having normal eyebrows that weren’t made stupidly thin by overly ambitious threaders. Also, I look so young. And I wore the same winter coat to that party and this year’s.]

The Merrill Lynch years were nice, the Bank of America year was non-existent and the real estate company year was miserable. I hated that party and felt uncomfortable and lonely. Another sign that the job wasn’t right for me, really. I remember being so glad I left that job before the summer company picnic day somewhere in Westchester or something. I was dreading it so much. But here at this job, I actually look forward to the events and spending time with the people. The party was a really great time. We were allowed to bring guests, so it was really nice meeting everyone’s husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends, and introducing Andy to the people I talk to him about. They brought in a caricature artist and a photo booth and I was totally in my element: having photos taken of me. Really, that is all I ever want. A sign that this job is right for me.


[Looks more like me than any I’ve had before, including my Bat Mitzvah signing board]

   

And also. . .

   
[That is always how Andy reacts when I try to kiss him. I wish I was joking.]

Also this month, I went to the wedding of a friend I met through this blog. I know I’ve told this story a hundred times, but one day in winter 2010 I got a nice comment from a girl who was also training for the NYC Half Marathon and enjoys Core Fusion. I sent her a pretty long email back, and after a few back and forths she came to my apartment (as all people I meet on the internet do) and we went out for a cold weather training run together. We ended up becoming running friends and real-life friends, and trained for and ran half of the ING NYC Marathon together.

And since this is a very narcissistic post, I might as well include my new favorite foto. Awwwwwwwwww.

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas and happy anything else you celebrate. Also, happy birthday to anyone who has birthdays this week because I know you get forgotten in the holiday excitement. I hope you don’t get one combined present “for both.”

    I love the drawing. Our holiday party was boring and I didn’t drink because I’m new and I’m not ready for these peeps to see me drunk yet.

    Cute pictures! I am so happy for you Dori! I too have joined the world of Sunday football and it’s not so bad.

    I am boycotting all of my work holiday parties this year because I’m not very happy with work-related things right now. In fact I’m skipping one now to read blogs.

    I may be biased, but you two look soooo good in all those pictures. And it’s not because of the hot guy (that’s me). You two make a great couple and I’m very happy you found a guy to watch football with on Sundays. I know that’s what you always wanted!

    Haha-my Dad and my boyfriend both have birthdays this week. I always make sure to keep them separate and make sure we celebrate both holidays!

    I know how it is to not like your job-congrats on finding one you enjoy and having fun at the holiday party!

    I love your title of this post, particularly the “photos of myself.” It made me laugh to read that it was a good holiday party because they had a photo booth. I have a running friend who works out side by side on treadmills with me and I am always trying to find one where I am in view of a mirror so I can see myself run. I was pouting when I couldn’t find one and friend said “Heather, give your vanity a break.” It really cracked me up and put me in a good mood for my mirrorless workout.

    The good thing of quick same day lending options is they currently have features just like easy payment facility; quick approval involving loans along with
    credit placement does not matter for these funds HDFC Dwelling Finance Rates
    are one of the best in the industry, rendering it hard for 100 % free
    to ignore
