October is already over.

I've been spending kind of a lot of time on airplanes lately, and that results in two things: (1) All of these great ideas of things that I want to share with the world.  (2) A lot of things to catch up on when I get back into the office, and then I forget all of my great ideas, and then I am tired at the end of the day and don't want to stare at a computer and try to remember my great ideas.  I think I'm going to start bringing a notebook or something on planes, because then I can write things down, but it's kind of pointless now, because I'm going to stay on the ground for a couple months.  

A lot of exciting things have happened in the month of October.  Since I haven't shared anything about my life with you for a while, I've decided to take a poll.  Here are the options. Think long and hard:

Option 1. Sara writes one long, LONG blog post about all of the exciting things that have happened in October.  The good thing about this is that there is only one post.  The bad thingS about this is that it'll be one effing long post, and you'll only get, like, a sentence or something about the exciting things that happened to me like: 

-Standing behind Ryan Braun our way to LA 
-Going to LA to sit in the audience of the Ellen DeGeneres Show for Adrianna's birthday
-Going on my first business trip
-Returning to Latin America for the first time since flying home from Ecuador for my first business trip in Colombia
-I took a cooking class, and signed up for another! ... and a lot of embarrassing things happened
-All of the things that I thought about when I was spending a total of 21 hours on an airplane and about 12 hours sitting in an airport in a span of 10 days.

Option 2.  I'm anticipating that November is considerable less exciting than October, so I'll write about all of those exciting things in no particular order in separate blog posts.

Vote now.

You know, since I'm actually in charge here, I'm going to go with Option 2, because I like to talk, and when I write, I talk in my head while I'm typing, and sometimes I talk out loud.

SO.  I have grand intentions of typing until my fingers bleed when I am back in the homeland!  

To hold you over (and prove to all of you doubters...):

That's Ryan Braun.  If you were wondering.  He smells really good.

>8) <-- evil.

Whoever came up with the wonderful world of emoticons is my hero.  


What a genius it was that figured out that HEY!  Putting a : before a ) and tilting your head to the left... Well I'll be damned!  That looks like a little guy with beady eyes grinning, yes GRINNING at me!! 


I'm not kidding.  



( 8D

Text message convo last night around 9 - 

Pete: Hot dog. I got hit by the tired monster!

Sara: Then go to bed.  You had a long week.  And a long weekend.  Don't fight it!!

Pete: Forgot to tell you that I have enough Mountain Dew to last the winter.  So that's helping me stay awake :)

Sara: Do you know what?  I'm going to dump it all down the drain if you tell me ONCE tomorrow that you're tired!!

Pete: 8(

Sara: 8|

Pete: 8D

Sara: >8|

Pete: haaahahahahaha (8D


Pete: 8( Ok! Sleep tight 

Sara: Seriously, stop texting me.

*Note: When I first opened the hot dog text on my phone, it just said, "Hot dog. I got hit..." because my phone previews the text before I fully open it to read it, but I read "Hot dog. I just got bit..." And when I first saw that little snippet, I thought OMG he got BIT by a DOG.  Reminder to self: read the whole message instead of skimming.

When I texted the emoticon of me sleeping like a peaceful angel -_- to Peter, I was going to send a text that said, "You should go to sleep too!" and then include an emoticon of HIM sleeping, but I couldn't do this one    -_- because Peter does NOT look like a peaceful angel when he sleeps.

I couldn't figure out how to make the emoticon of how he sleeps when I was falling asleep last night, so I just didn't do it. 

But I figured it out.  Even though it's not an emoticon.

Peter sleeps like this:
- -

This thing \~/ is a representation of the furrowed brow he has when he's sleeping.  He like, looks like he's confused about something, or thinking really hard.  As I'm typing this, I'm furrowing my brow.  I look like this:
o o

__ instead of U because it's hard to smile when you're furrowing your brow.  o o instead of - - because I'm awake.

And now, as I'm looking at the little pictures I've typed, I'm realizing that that's not what Peter REALLY looks like when he sleeps.

It's more like this:

I sleep like this:


Actually (I thought I would bring this up before my MOM), I don't sleep like that.  

I sleep with my eyes half open.  Scary, I know.

But I'm not going to draw a picture of that because GEEZE this post isn't about ME, it's about PETER.

And YES - I watch Peter sleep ALL THE TIME.
