High 5 for Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  I could not be happier that the weekend is here. I am just absolutely exhausted!  I am linking up with Lauren, From My Grey Desk, for todays High 5.
How was everyone's week?  Here's a recap of mine ...

1. I have finished my 2nd week at my new job and I am loving it!  I'm still getting used to the morning hours, but am getting better.  There are a few things I need to tweak in my evening time at home, but I'll get there!  Here are a couple pictures for you:
This is the view from my office window.  My hotel has Venus statues ouside, so I get a view of her butt and accross the street a church!

I have never had my very own desk before! I can decorate it any way that I want.  I have a couple pictures up now, but need a few more things to personalize my space!


2. I got to see my Bestie this week.  It had been a little while since we'd seen each other. Lindsay took me to see The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.  It's a show from the National Theatre of Scotland   The tagline is... "Sometimes you need to go to hell and back to find true love."  It was a really cool show.  It is performed in a bar and is somewhat interactive.  It was a lot of fun!



3. I also got to hang out with some other friends, Stephanie and Jim.  I went over to their house and Stephanie made dinner.  It was really nice to chill out and unwind with friends.  They introduced me to a new show called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. It is produced by Jerry Seinfeld and he's the star.  The concept is that he calls up his comedian buddies and they get coffee, breakfast, lunch, whatever.  Sometimes the show is 15 minutes, sometimes it's longer. It's really funny and you should check it out.  It comes on a network called Crackle.  It's similar to Hulu.

Here he is, below, with Ricky Gervais.  I bet this is a funny episode!


4. I participated in a Nail Polish swap!  There was some confusion with the post date and then there were some mail mishaps! I tried to post it on Wednesday, but my phone was being dumb with my pictures!  Here is what Aryn, posts at A Pretty Poppy, sent me ~
 haha...yeah, the foot picture is a little ghetto :)  The colors are Play Til Midnight (left) and Canberrat Without You (right).  I love both colors so much!!!!!  She also sent me a tiny little bottle of a Sally Girl polish in the color of a hot pink. Thanks Aryn!


5. Last night the fire alarm went off in my building.  I live on the 14th floor!  I walked down the stairs and outside to see 5 fire trucks, an ambulance, and several emergency vehicles.  I met a new friend while standing in the cold; both of us in clothes we would rather not be seen in public wearing.  It turns out that someone on my floor burnt their popcorn and when they opened their apartment floor to air it out, all of the alarms went off!  Crazy people!
Here are 3 of the fire trucks and a random neighbor of mine (not my new friend).

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

until next time *erica*
