This is what I do at work...

We honored World COPD day..being a cardiopulmonary unit..on November 18th. I made all the posters and helped decorate. We ended up raising almost 1000 dollars for the American Lung Association of New York by collecting money from employees so everyone could wear jeans to work on the 17th.

And then after the event..we had so many of course I had to use them!

Drowning in them..ahhh!

Hiding in them..

Flying away with them!

And then my co-worker and I had a photoshoot..hiding behind hydrangeas..

And looking cute..

Being fancy...

Laughing our asses off of course!

Using exercise equipment with an attitude..

Making silly faces..

Being naughty secretaries..

And this is our Christmas card..haha.

Ben Lee 2010

On Thursday, November 4th, my friend from work and I saw the adorable Australian musician Ben Lee perform at Stage One in Fairfield, CT.

We got some delicious sushi in Stamford beforehand..

My friend and I..

The opener was Alexa Wilding...whose music I wasn't too fond of. Her lyrics were dry and humdrum..and just about every song sounded the same with a few basic chords. To be honest it reminded me of something I would have heard in high school at one of our literary magazine open mic nights...except worse. Sorry Alexa. I did like your outfit though!

Then along came Ben Lee!

He asked the audience for a nail all seriousness..and my friend happened to have one.

He opened with "I'm a Woman Too"... a song from his new album: The Rebirth of Venus. He also sang favorites such as "Gamble Everything for Love" and "Catch my Disease".

At the end, instead of the following the traditional routine of going behind the curtain and "pretending to leave"...he turned around while the audience cheered for an encore.

He then spun around...looking surprised and shocked that the audience wanted an encore.

And he finished off by unplugging his amp and playing "We're all in this Together" while the crowd sang along.

What a stud.

All Hallow's Eve 2010

At work our unit dressed up as the Jersey Shore...the popular reality show on MTV which features a cast of characters who enjoy partying it up and could probably be confused with tangerines:

getting ready with some ultra shiny pink lipstick

fist pumping at the "bar"

Ronnie, Snooki, The Situation and myself (random character)

Other things that happened this weekend...

My friend and I saw The Drums, Neon Trees and Fountains of Wayne at RXP's Masquerade for FREE. We were front and center the whole time too!

We both caught guitar picks from Fountains of Wayne!!!

I also had a regular halloween costume..and this year I was a "doe-eyed deer"

close-up of my makeup...I made the antlers myself by the way..out of clay.

Hope you all had a fantastic halloween!!! :)
