As I was feeling a bit weary this past week, I have to admit that I was dreading the long weekend just a bit. However, I had an amazing weekend! Had a great time hangin’ with my pal (and guardian angel!) Milford — we watched Albert Brooks and Debbie Reynolds in MOTHER. …If you’ve ever had to walk a parent thru how to use a piece of modern technology — I promise you will get more than a few laughs from this movie! And, spent one day on my own just roaming about the city and not thinking of my money woes, lack of job or other issues of angst. No, instead I just walked about admiring this city and took in a film from Budapest called KONTROLL which was awesome — a bit scary (subplot invovling a hooded figure pushing people on to the subway tracks! …something I fear will happen to me anyway! LOL!) But way cool movie!

Then I spent Sunday with Ming. That is “the guy’s” name. We had a great day of hanging out — and, I shall leave it at that as not to jinx anything!

Today — Milford, Bill and I took in a Ballywood movie, PECK ON THE CHEEK, at the Balboa Cinema. I didn’t care for this film, but I think Milford and Bill enjoyed it. The cool thing was that as the weather has been so perfect — we decided to drive to the ocean. We explored caves and ruins of an old park/bath that had been built right on the ocean in the 19th Century. And we walked up to the peak of an amazing cliff over the ocean! I didn’t have my camera or I could have gotten some great pix. Then Milford treated us to appetizers and drinks at this cool place called CLIFFS. I felt so Californian sipping my Diet Coke looking the sun reflecting off the water. Gorgeous.

Then I got Milford to help me find a bus stop I need to use that I’ve not been able to locate for the life of me. Of course, it took him 3 minutes! LOL!

Now, I am sitting on the living room floor feeling relaxed after a nice hot shower. Think I might turn in early tonight to get a jump on tomorrow. An HR Director emailed me on Saturday asking me to check out their company’s website. She had found my resume on Monster and wants me to apply for a position working with their VP of Marketing. Based upon my resume, she thinks I would be a good fit if I am interested. I totally am — so I completed the online application, formally submitted my resume and sent an email back to the HR Director. My fingers are crossed so hard they hurt!

So, this has been a great weekend on all counts — I just miss Alan, but he returns on Thursday! Yay!!!!
