I am totally antsy today, maybe it is the weather being so un-winter-like. Maybe it is the fact that it is Friday. Maybe it is that it is only 14 days until my trip to Ukraine. I am super excited to go and experience a place I have never been before. Angela has told us so much about how beautiful it is and how great a time we are going to have. I intend on toasting my birthday with some local libations - hopefully they have good beer.

We are taking Dad to Fogo De Chao for his birthday Saturday night. It will be interesting to see, 15 different meats on a stick brought to the table, I will of course skip this and rock out with the reportedly incredible salad bar. I saw a picture on the website and it looks pretty awesome.

I am starting to get really nervous about the next several months of my life. Only 55 days until I leave work, 57 until I fly to London. I am so excited to spend the time in London, especially with Lauren. It is just so nerve wracking to quit and uproot my life. But it is so exciting at the same time. I am on an amazing journey and I am so thankful for the opportunity to do so.

My top 10

When I worked at Chili's back in the day, we used to while away the hours by creating lists and asking silly questions. For example: If the city actually was build on rock'n'roll, who would be the mayor?

Anyway - I spent a lot of time thinking about my top 10 all time favorite songs, and I think I got it right.

1. Bad- U2
2. In Your Eyes- Peter Gabriel
3. Gimme Shelter -The Rolling Stones
4. Come Undone - Duran Duran
5. Babylon - David Gray
6. Under The Boardwalk - The Drifters
7. Under Pressure - David Bowe and Queen
8. Once in a Lifetime - The Talking Heads
9. London Calling - The Clash
10. Everlong - Foo Fighters

There are more that round out the top 20...
I am obviously procrastinating.
