Big Sale Tonight

I got up later than I wanted to today in order to get everything ready for the big Girls' Night In sale tonight, but I am just about done now. All the boxes are packed and to the first floor. My laundry for tonight is done and I only have one more load for the house to be all clean-clothed. I am just going to put on some real clothes, truck down to my car about 12 times and take a bath. Then the fun starts. Lugging all the boxes into the coffeeshop and selling away. This night is going to be bittersweet, but I hope it will be fun too. A lot of people have told me that they are coming and I hope they buy a lot. I would like to not bring home any (or many) boxes of sex toys tonight.

Are you coming out?

Girls' Night In Going Out of Business Sale and Celebration

Girls’ Night In “Going Out of Business” Sale and Celebration


Pittsburgh, PA. November 15, 2007 — Girls’ Night In is excited to announce a celebration of the past five years of business and begin a new chapter with a final sale. The celebration will be held on Thursday, November 15, 2007 at Amani International Coffeehouse 507 Foreland Street, Pittsburgh, PA from 8:00-10:00pm. The celebration is free of charge.


Girls' Night In is "going out of business." For almost 5 years, Girls’ Night In has been the premier sexuality resource center in Pittsburgh, offering educational workshops, home parties, opportunities to purchase sex toys and general insight into human sexuality.


Karen Derzic, owner of Girls’ Night In, will no longer be conducting home parties or selling sex toys for GNI after November 15th. However, she will still be available for workshops and college lectures. She is taking this opportunity to grow as an individual and to expand her educational horizons so that she can be a better facilitator in the future.


In order to say goodbye and celebrate the past 5 years, Girls’ Night In is hosting one last giant blow out sale at Amani International Coffeehouse. GNI chose Amani International because an awesome woman, Terra Jones, runs it and she is just starting her business. So while Girls’ Night In is changing, they want to introduce you to a new female entrepreneur who would love your support. Coffee, tea, and other beverages, along with pastries will be available for purchase from Amani that night.


As for the giant sale, the entire stock is being liquidated in order to start this new phase of GNI with a clean financial slate. There will be raffle tickets available and sale prices like you have never seen.


If you cannot make it to the party and have any needs for your own toy basket, or want to give someone a holiday season to remember, please contact Karen Derzic at 412.951.2488 or Karen@girls-night-in.com and she will see how she can help. And please take the time to visit both www.amaniinternational.com and Amani International in person.


For more information, contact Karen Derzic at Karen@girls-night-in.com or 412-951-2488.

Both Jwan and I have been confused as to what day of the week it is all week. It started with me thinking he didn't know it was Monday and me waking him up early for work. ooops. Living together is full of surprises.

Every night we do a few things around the house, then we cook dinner, I check my email/read, Jwan plays Wii and we go to bed. It's pretty fucking awesome. I can get used to this. 

I got a sty(e) on my right eyelid right now and it's making me cranky. It constantly feels like there is something in my eye and that I'm straining it. The computer work is not helping and I'm not quite awake enough to work anyhow. I am going to go home early and take a power nap to rest my eye. When did I get this old?

The job search is in full swing and I'm currently sitting on about 8 postings and cannot concentrate enough to write quality cover letters. I hope the nap helps that too.

Oh and I'm co-sponsoring an Erotic Writing workshop next Saturday. Details to follow, but feel free to question me here. I have a phone meeting to work out some details today!!!

Ok, I think I'm done rambling. I often have to put things down on paper (or pixels) to clear my head, so thanks for reading. I hope you have a sty(e) free weekend.

Tonight, I finished stripping the mantel in the spare bedroom. It was a fucking mess. This mantel still had varnish under the paint, so everything is sticky and it was much harder to remove the residue from everything. I pooped out and will sand the rest of it at another time. Until then, please enjoy my photos.

Dear garbage collectors in my neighborhood,
Please stop stealing my recycle bin. You do not provide them and you have taken 2 in the past year. 

Now, I have none and a pile of recyclables on my kitchen counter. Please advise.

Thank you,

it always seems to happen this way

Today is supposed to be another beautiful day in Pittsburgh, but all I want to do is lay in bed. Play on the Internet, watch bad television and nap. I love to nap. All I did yesterday was to nap.

Tomorrow I'm sure that my energy will improve as the rain and cooler temperatures come through.

I'm so cold right now and just went to the kitchen to make some tea and saw that it was snowing sideways. brrrr.

Anyhow, I'm continuing to procrastinate about work and have done the following to waste time:

1. posted a dumb list to live journal
2. played 19 games of solitaire
3. checked to see if I could name all 50 states in 10 minutes
4. emailed a few people
5. sent Jwan my birthday wish list
6. decided if I want to respond to yet another letter audit, but this one is dumb.
7. transferred all my back up disks to my new computer
8. installed software
9. read a few blogs

Alright, I guess I'll get to work. Stop nagging me.
