Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 58

After this past weekend of getting hardly any sleep with going to Vegas and staying up all night and traveling and getting up early. PLUS going on a date with Mountain Man and getting into long talks into the late night.... I have not had very much sleep and I have not been able to catch up. I honestly don't know how I get up for work in the morning. I'm too old for this. I'm working on the whole bedtime thing.

I think because of the lack of sleep issue.... I am sick again. The runny nose stuff this time. I don't think I have EVER gotten sick again this fast. I mean... I got over my two week cough what? 2 weeks ago? I hope this one doesn't last as long. I plan on getting a lot of sleep this weekend.

Last night I colored my roommate Tina's hair. I have done this for a quite a few times since we have lived together. I never went to hair school. She did. However... it makes me feel like I am a hair stylist when I color her hair. I mean, she mixes up the color. All I do it put it in. For some reason though it makes me feel cool and makes me feel like I have more talent then I really do. I like to help other people out and its a fun time for us to chat. I don't mind doing it at all.

Remember when I blogged about the company I work for getting bought by another company? It was announced in November, but they told us it would be business as usual until their fiscal end year which is March 31st. I haven't really thought too much about it since then. I knew things would go on as normal until then. Well... its getting pretty close to March 31st now and we have started to have meetings with people from the new company. I'm was just trying to stay awake and not get too fidgety on our video conference meeting. While I was thinking about that... I guess the rest of my department started to get real stressed about their job and who is going to stay and who is going to go. Its still very up in the air. Tuesday in our Department meeting everyone was feeling pretty good. Wednesday in our video conference meeting everyone started to stress out hard core. Today the people from the new company met with the managers of our department and I guess people are starting to feel a little better again. Honestly... I am not really sure what to think. I just know I can't really stress over things I have no control over. So I just keep going to work and stay on top of things and try not to think about it too much. Who knows how long this will go on for. Its hard to say. I told my boss that because of all that is going on that it was important that we had another team activity. He agreed and we are setting something up in the next couple of weeks. Isn't it so nice that I can go to my boss and tell him that we need to go to lunch or see a movie or plan a team activity and EVERY TIME I do he goes for the idea.

Speaking of work. My boss and the managers over our department came to me the other day and asked me if I would be the Web Administrator for the Department.  Out of everyone in our department... all the older very smart guys that have been dealing with computer stuff way longer than I have.... they want me to do it. For some reason when it comes to managing websites, they think of me and that I would do the best job at it and it would come most easily to me. Maybe its because I have caught on to the new programs like "Vibe" and "Teaming" so quickly. I'm not sure but I think its a great compliment. I hope that I don't disappoint. Sometimes it is a little intimidating being the youngest and one of the only girls in the department.

Lately I have noticed that I am a total sucker for guys being sweet to me. Not that no guy has ever been sweet to me before, but maybe its been a long time since guys have been sweet to me, so I am just really noticing it more? I don't know. A few examples. #1-Dance crush and I have talked a lot online and talked about going to dinner and getting sushi, but he didn't want to ask me out over an online conversation, so last night he called me and said he would really love it if I would go to dinner with him and we scheduled a time and he said thank you for accepting. Asking in such a way was not only gentlemanly, but made me feel really special. #2- The first time Mountain Man and I talked on the phone after we met up in the mountains at the end of the call he told me how nice it was to hear my voice again.  On our date he told me the whole story of how he recovered my note from his car in the terrible weather and at the end of the story he showed me the note. I couldn't believe he kept the little sticky note that I left on his car. I asked him why he kept it and he said because it had sentimental value. It made him really happy that I left that note for him, so he wanted to keep it. Cute right?  #3- When my Vegas boyfriend told me that he loved my green eyes and cute smile. #4- A boy in my FHE this last Monday was talking to me and said something that made me laugh. He was just looking at me and then told me to wait and smile again. I did and then he smirked and and asked if I had dimples and I became self conscious and answered yes and he said "That's funny". I asked what was so funny and he said " I have been searching for a girl with dimples. Girls want a guy that is tall dark and handsome, I want a girl with dimples. I love them. I could never stay mad at a girl with dimples, all she would have to do it smile and I would forget what I was mad at". All I could do was blush I'm sure. I don't know this guy very well... but it honestly made my week. I thought it was the cutest thing to say to me. Now I'm wanting him to ask me out. ha ha. Guys... if you want to win me over, being really sweet to me is going to take you there.
