the great surprise

I successfully surprised Rhett. This is a very large accomplishment and I can't believe I forgot to mention it. Before now, I've never been able to pull off a surprise - Rhett reads me like a book and he always ruins it. But this time I was very very sneaky my friends...

For Valentine's day I planned a road trip to Vegas to see the O Show by Cirque du Soleil (with a great deal of help from my dear friend Melanie. The Skylanie pair joined us on the road trip). Valentine's day was Thursday, and I had to work till 7:30 but I met Rhett at at restaurant in downtown Salt Lake for dinner. He gave me a beautiful sparkly necklace which was perfect because I had been complaining that I lost my favorite one. And I gave him tickets to the O Show for the following night at 10pm. He was excited, but of course concerned at my lack of planning since he had to work the next day. But, ta da! I had already talked to his boss and gotten him the day off, and talked to his HR manager to make sure he got vacation for it. My plan worked. He was genuinely surprised, and I was genuinely proud of myself.

We had dinner at a restaurant in Vegas called Lucille's. Best food ever, I still crave it. One entree could feed a small nation for a week. I've been there a couple times but never ventured over to the powder room, where this lovely decorative item is proudly displayed. Oh, what I've been missing! May I present... Electric sex glowing in the window.

Tell me you know the reference. If not, I cannot explain it to you, because you have betrayed your childhood and we probably shouldn't be friends. F R A G I L E. Must be Italian.

happens all the time

Sometimes I take pictures of things that amuse me. I have a whole file of them on my laptop called "Um, funny." Most likely only funny to me, but maybe someday I'll share them all with you. Fingers crossed! This one I found taped to the locker next to mine at the hospital, and I grinned a little.

Common occurance at the maternity ward where I work. It's a real problem.

Thanks Far Side.

cry me a river

I'm currently suffering from 3 papercuts and a sliver. I can only assume none of you have heard about this yet, which is the only logical explanation for the lack of sympathy I've received.
