I was going to post something that had to due with my never ending cavalcade of life failures. But after I had lunch with a friend I realized it really isn’t so bad. I wouldn’t be who I am without failures, and there was no way I wouldn’t have tried.
It’s just one of those things… that just didn’t work out for Ol’ Laurie Lue
Then this morning I heard it was one of my fashion icons/ cosmic twin’s birthday!!!
And I live for Birthday’s…
Especially… Brandon Flowers!!!
Not only is he the lead singer of the “Killers”… but he also has a penchant for the Cure and wearing fashion while carving out some melodies of his own that have a special place in my soul.
Happy Birthday Spaceman
He also reminds me that I really need to get a gold lame leopard print tuxedo… just for funsies.
So I have been in the center of a lot of changes recently.
And I am really behind on even mentioning birthdays, or anything of that nature! I will totally make that up some other time, probably with my award winning Paul Simon impersonation…
But today is an exciting day!!! It’s a birthday of one of my favorite people of all times….
Although at this point I haven’t worked with him in over a year, I think he’s a magical creature. It was always claimed at my first job that I played favorites… and that my favorite person in the office was Dab.
And now that I don’t work there… Duh! I mean anyone could tell that he was totally my favorite.
Quite simply in my book, Dab always wins. He can win any game, any argument (unless it’s with me), and even extra food that I don’t feel like eating. Dab… wins it all!
And to celebrate the shear spiciness of my friend of the last 8 years, I give you this simple doodle:
Happy Birthday! I hope your year is magical.
And yes… the doodle is too cutesy, but as you know cutesy is just my style :)
I have never really feared aging… maybe because I feel happy about pretty much everyday.
And apparently everyone at work thought I turned 23… so super bonus?
I got treated very kindly by my new coworkers and friends and…. really just had a great time.
I usually use this post to reflect on the last 12 months and set a few new goals… which I will happily do if you continue to read on
Things I learned at 28:
♥ That I’m not all together that weird. I was made to think that most people aren’t terribly creative or prone to fantasy over the years… and I have met a few people this year that have shown me that this is not the case. And that it’s okay to be any which way you are.
♥That sometimes a change will do you good. I may not have chosen all the changes that have happened this year… but all in all they have been the best things that have happened to me! Woot woot– higher quality of life–
♥That I’m a good worker. The first time I was ever eligible for a review and it… went really well.
♥ That giving people a chance can be a great thing and lead to great relationships… it can also get you stalked. Both have happened this year.
♥That engineers are very awkward… but also so, so adorable.
♥That it’s okay to be a little more on the flashy side of life.
♥That sometimes space away from certain people, is what you need more than anything. Because they are making you stall in the things you want to get done.
♥Some times nothing beats good friends, and cheesecake.
♥That you will do so many things for people who are important to you… including getting lost in the Hollywood Hills. And it’s nice to get to do those things
♥ And that Paul McCartney can still really perform.
Things I will do this year:
♥Start a business that involves my art for real this time. I have seen so many people who do this, at my new job… and I want to be more like them!
♥Participate in all the things I can. Except for really boring stuff, that I still won’t do
♥Create the costume my doodle is wearing for Halloween. It comes from this music video which is one of my favorites:
I want to be dressed like this dreamy 22nd century rooster
♥Go to Spain, I have the money to have a very nice vacation… and that will never be enough money to buy a house in California.
And with that I thank you for reading this and looking at my silly doodles. Here’s to a super wonderful year.
It’s my desk buddies birthday… so today was a wonderful celebration of her that included a desk decorated in “Under the Sea” paraphernalia and with lots of pie.
And although work is well… sometimes hard to get through. Elisa makes it a blast for all the hours we are there together. We giggle, walk to 7-11 for slurpees, talk about our weird fascinating lives and wait in long lines for well her to get coffee. And she totally enjoys laughing at me when I turn bright red talking to the cute guy from the office down the hall.
And it’s all amazing. So amazing that my boss is moving me… to Siberia. In hopes that I won’t talk to anyone.
Well until then, we shall party and giggle and get our work done!
Happy Birthday Elisa I hope you have a wonderful year!
