*Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, hey girl, magenta! and she's like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, no - I want magenta!* ~John Mayer

  I am so happy that Friday is here! This week has been one of those long long weeks, you know the ones where every morning is harder to get up then the day before and the sound of the alarm clock is dreadful?! I know that tonight will have to be comprised of movies and takeout or else I may fall asleep at the bar! Every person I talked to today was thrilled and more than ready for the weekend. I think the weather has everything to do with it and most of the time it is extremely hard to sit inside at work on a beautiful sunny day! At least when summer hits I'll dread the outdoors and be happy to be inside, even if I am working. ☺

**Be inspired this evening at Hotel Indigo. Join their Friday night fever before hitting the Scottsdale nightlife. The Divine Lounge offers $3 domestics and $4 well cocktails.**
