I'm giving up social media for Lent. I'll post my experience after Easter. Happy blogging and I'll see you in 40 days.

Name conversation

This is a typical conversation that I have with just about any new person I meet.  In one form or another they ask about my name.  Some are more polite than this guy.

Me: Hi, I'm Blaze. How can I help you?
Guy: Blaze?  Really?  Why?
Me: Why?
Guy: Yea, why Blaze?
Stare at Guy as if I don't comprehend his question
Guy: slowly as if I'm idiot Why are you named Blaze?
Me: Sir, I think Sara may be more capable of helping you at this time.  And walk away.

Lover's Day and Sushi

Tis the weekend for love.  My husband and I don't really celebrate in this holiday.  Too much pressure and setup for disappointment.  He did however buy me a box of chocolates.  But before he could give it to me the dog got into and ate the whole box!
Last night I needed to relieve some stress.  So a small group of us went to a local sushi restaurant.  Turns out Maria and Jackie were there with their own separate groups.  Also, Maria was with a friend who used to lifeguard with Jackie and I.  T-town only allows 2 degrees of separation at the most.  It cool to see so many people you know in a small restaurant.  I guess sushi was the it thing last night. 

I'm reading The Chronicles of Narnia.  I know the basic story line, but I never read it as a kid.  My husband insisted that I read these books.  So the last time I ventured to the book store I picked up the whole collection.  They're really good.

Oh and I'm seriously trying to plan a vacation.  Just knowing that I'm going somewhere, sometime is really helping the February blues.

I'm alive

I think I might ban blogging until T-town decides it’s no longer Green Bay. Monday became crazy for me last night at about 11pm. I received an email from my boss that caused me not to sleep until well past 1am. I don't want to go into detail. But it had me stating why I should be allowed to handle certain situations without bringing in other people. 

It's been very cold here. Too cold. I want a warm vacation, like now. I'm thinking St. Lucia, Belize, or Cabo. Suggestions?

This weekend was random. I saw a dodge ball tournament. Seriously! And there were some pretty serious teams. Each game was 5 minutes with 2.5 minute halves. Dave's team didn't last through the first half before they were eliminated. Pretty entertaining nonetheless.

Saturday, I celebrated a friend’s birthday by riding in a 15-passenger van to Eischen’s which is the oldest bar in Oklahoma. This happens to be next to the oldest bank. It’s in a little town outside of OKC and it was packed! We waited an hour to find a table big enough for our group. One interesting social experiment – each person in our group was assigned an area to be on the lookout for a table. One member decided he was going to form a line and so he did. He just told everyone looking at tables that he was next and they stood behind him. They were all guys. All the females were still scouring tables and not being aggressive. Guess where we got our table? In the room with the line. Little fact Eischen’s was on the food network for Dive, Drives and Dinners. It was good food and something different.

I hope everyone's Monday is better than mine. And that you're staying warm. I'm so over winter, seriously we've never received this much snow before. I miss those days...
