What an eventful weekend it has been!
I got off work and came home to change because we had tickets to the Big 12 Baseball game at the Bricktown Ball park yesterday. It was a Nebraska/Texas game and what an exciting game it was. WAY more exciting than RedHawks games. More players on base, the fans were great and everything. The weather was fantastic and it was so fun.
So, we're at the game, Nebraska is at bat and I turned to tell my dad something and BAM! A Nebraska player hit a foul ball and it flew up to our suite's balcony and hit me smack in the left eye. I don't remember going back into the suite ro anything, but a RedHawks lady was there and was hollering for someone to get EMSA up to our suite. So, moments later EMSA is there and I've got ice packs on my eye. My mom is crying. The Paramedic is talking to another paramedic saying how bad it is and that I need to go to the hospital. So, I was escorted downstairs by two very nice EMSA men and then I was on my way to the Mercy Emergency room. While I was there I had a CatScan and something else done. The ER doctor had to get my contact our of my eye, but since I couuldn't open my eye, he had to get a male nurse in there to pry my eye open. AFter about 4 attempts, he got the contact out and had to do like, 3 tests on my eye. They don't think my face is fractured, but since my eye is so swollen, they're not sure if I have any eye damage. 4 hours later, I was back at home with some Loritab.
Hopefully the rest of the weekend will be far less eventful. To be honest, I'm very self conscious about my face. The entire left side is swollen and hard. I've got some slight bruising, but once the swelling goes down then my entire left side of my face is goin to bruise, according to the doctor. I'm quite scared about going to work especially since I work at a busy bank. I don't want people staring at me and thinking I'm deformed.
My mom, sister and I are getting pedicures tomorrow, so that wil be nice.

Listening to "She's Out There" by The Hero Factor. Amazing. I love them. They're a local band from Tulsa and wow, pure brilliance.
So work was good. I went in at 11 and came home around 2:45. Nice. I wish all of my days were like that. Sweetness. Came home, took a nap and then went out with Jessica. Lots of fun. Poor girl, slammed her thumb in the car door at Wal-Mart, so I had to drive her car back to my house while she was nursing her wound.
American Idol was fantastic. Taylor won and that makes me so happy. I love watching him perform. He just gets out there and has a good time.
So tomorrow night Whitney my mom and I are going to get manicures and pedicures. My work is having a call night tomorrow night where everyone has to stay until 8:00. I have a problem with this. The way I look at it, I've met my sales goals. I shouldn't have to stay to make phone calls when I've been doing my job. Period. I hate having to pick up the slack of the other people I work with. Now, I would get overtime for the 3 hours I have to stay late, but I would much rather have a mani and pedi than make phone calls soliciting to people while they're trying to have dinner and spend time with their families.

So, the cute school teacher came by yesterday. I didn't get to help him, but I did get to see him. Then, today he came by again to make a deposit. We talked for a little bit and teased eachother. He made fun of me because I was having problems with the tubes and getting them to send and he said, "Geez Holly. You don't know how to work these." But he had on these aviator sunglasses. So, of course I said, "Hey nice glasses, those were cool back in 1982". So we traded jabs and laughs.
Ah. so so so cute. So nice.
I have a theory that he's come by to see me the past 2 days, that just means he wants me. SO bad!

Have you ever seen "The Other Sister"? It's a super cute movie. Love it!
So I saw the cute school teacher today. He's so so nice. I like him a lot. He asked me how finals went and then I talked to him for a bit. Gosh! He's just so stinkin nice. I want to go out with him so bad. I like him a lot.
So so so cute.
Geez, I need a boyfriend.
by Holly at 9:16 PM
Ah, I don't have to be at work until 10:15. Nice.
Where have all the cute boys gone? Geez. I haven't gotten to see the cute school teacher or the cute dentist in the past 2 days! Grrr. I'd prefer to see the cute school teacher. Even though, I heard through the grapevine that he has a girlfriend. Grr.
So, Leslie and I hung out last night. It was so good to see her. We went out to the mall and to Barnes and Noble for a while. I had to pick up a birthday present for a co-worker. Fun times.
Alright, I must go and iron my clothes for work. I should be pretty cute today. Very bohemian chic.

Does anyone actually read this? I'm thinking no.
So work was pretty stressful today. I'm so so sick of feeling like I'm the only person doing any work around here. It's so frustrating. So, I'm taking to a customer today who happened to be a former teacher of mine and we're chatting for a minute AT THE MOST, and Melissa says, "Holly, you need to get back to work and help the cusomters in the drive." So, I go and help back there and Maggie, Melissa and Melissa are just goofing off laughing and having a jolly good time. First they're not being professional and seconsly they weren't even helping any customers. Jerks. So I got in my "quiet worker mode" where I don't really talk. When I'm pissed off, I just shut my mouth and I don't say anything at all. I just get in this way beyong pissed off mood. So, about a 30 mintes before we're supposed to leave Melissa comes up and gives me a hug and says, "Thanks for being a good girl today." Am I not a good girl every other day? Was I "good" becuase I wasn't talking? I don't get it.
I enjoy working with money a lot, but sometimes I wonder if this is where God wants me to be right now. If it was, don't you think I'd be super excited about going to work and I would feel as though I'm making a difference where I work? Just a thought.
I'm going to take a walk now. I'm trying to lose weight, so we'll see how that goes. I would like to loose about 3 sizes before I go to Omaha for Jane's wedding and then to Vegas.
Later. Don't forget to watch Grey's Anatomy tonight. It's 2 hours!

Hi Mom's! Happy Mother's Day!
So, my mom completely loved her Mother's Day Scrapbook I made her. It's official, I'm the favorite. *ha ha* I started off her wonderful day by making her PINK waffles with chocolate chips and fresh strawberries. Yum yum!
Survivor finale is tonight. So is Grey's Anatomy. I'll watch Survivor and DVR the other. I must watch both, of course.
We're grilling out kabobs for lunch. Yum.
Survivor prediction: Cirie is the 4th person voted out. Terry is the 3rd. Final two are Aras and Danielle and I think...Aras will win.

Hi everyone. *blah* What a week this has been. Highs and lows, but mostly just in the middle.
My mom's company picnic is tomorrow. Should be fun. It's at the Bricktown Ballpark.
So, I'm thinking about taking a day trip to Tulsa in a few weeks. I just want to go up there and shop around. It'll be fun.
My cousin Jane lives in Omaha and invited me to come up and hang with her. Should be buckets of fun. I'll have to do that, definitely.
Whitney are I are going to go out one day soon and take pictures. We want to use some fun pictures for our Facebook profiles. Plus, I need some new pictures to scrapbook with.
Alright. Going to bed...I have work in the morning...yuck.

So, the hot guy came into the bank yesterday again. We talked some more. He's got a great smile and nice teeth. His name is Matt. *sigh*
So, I got tickets to see Glenn Beck on July 15th in Tulsa. My dad is going too. We love Glenn Beck.
So, today at work, everyone got written up. Mine was because I didn't notice that Pam left her work out last night and since I'm the person with the most seniority it's automoatically my fault. Can you say...BULLSHIT? Comepletely not fair. I'm getting really sick of the double standard we have at work. It's in our policy that we can't wear denim. So, one day I came in wearing a denim jacket because I had just come from school. I was immediately told that I couldn't wear my jacket. However, yesterday another girl at work wore a denim jacket all day and nobody said ANYTHING about it. Excuse me, how is that fair? I'm just sick of crap like that. I would love to get a job doing something creative and inspiring. However, I wouldn't make jack compared to what I make now. So, I'll stay here, but I'm in it ONLY for the money.
So, American Idol...who's going to win? I'm guessing Taylor and Chris in the final two. I really think Taylor will win. Everyone else has been in the bottom 2 before, but not Taylor. I think Chris deserves to win though. We'll see. Katharine will be gone tomorrow though, she wasn't good tonight.

I just watched "Dirty Jobs" on the Discovery channel. Talk about gross. This guy had to clean out a backed up toilet. So nasty.
Work was good today. I have an Advertising final and a humanities final tomorrow. Should be interesting.
So, this guy came into the bank today. He was super hot. We talked for like, 10 minutes while I did his transactions. He's buying a house. Very impressive. He's got dark brown hair and gorgeous teeth. *sigh* I hope I see him again soon. He's 21 too. I can't say his name, but let's just say he's great.
Ah, I'm ready for finals to be over. 1 down, 4 to go.
