Not to be too awkward - Mood:Good
Tuesday December 20 201112:56:13 AM |
But(t penis)...

Are any of your top 5 best friends people you have a primarily online relationship with?

Like...one of my top 5 is someone I went to camp with in 8th grade. We were never friends at camp, but afterwards, started talking online like crazy. We became really close and...to this day, I consider him one of my top 5 favorite people.

In addition, two people from my family are on that list. Is that weird?

Stop making me feel awkward, internet!

In other news, today sucked.

Skittles vodka, Poinsettias, and an achy butt. - Mood:Good
Sunday December 18 20117:23:57 PM |
This drink is delicious. Prosecco, cranberry juice, orange liqueur. Voila!

I just did some gift wrapping. I'm still up in the air about what to get one of my secret santas. The other was EASY PEAZY.

I want to make some CDs but I've never made them before on this computer. Not to sound stupid, but can you make them in iTunes?

I think it's dumb to live in a crazy big house that's bigger than your needs. I could use more space currently, but I wouldn't want to go to the other extreme with rooms that are unoccupied 95% of the time. That's weird. (This is inspired by House Hunters...great show).

Time to start to work on Skittles infused vodka! WISH ME LUCK.

My entire morning can be summed up in one picture: - Mood:Good
Saturday December 10 20112:12:36 PM |

Seriously...hours of this. How did I not know it existed? HOW!?

The worst Christmas songs ever thread inspires me to share one of my favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VY-pePkGX... Whenever anyone talks about that crappy Mariah Carey one, I think of this.

My head hurts. I drank too much wine last night. And I want to be really lazy today. Like...intensely. I have to go to the grocery store later, do some laundry today, and write Christmas cards.

Oh yeah, I'm a card-sending person finally. It's taken me a LONG time to get here. It used to be I'd buy cards for people/stuff and they'd sit at home. Then as I got older, I'd fill out the cards, but not the envelope. Slowly but surely, I've added steps to become a card sender. The hardest step is the taking it to the mailbox.

Don`t take life to seriously - Mood:Happy
Friday December 09 201110:24:36 PM |
You'll never get out alive.

This "friend" of mine just got that as a tattoo and posted the pic on facebook. Now, he SAYS the spelling mistake is intentional...and that those who point it out are taking life to seriously.

But really?

I just don't know.

I went to a conference today. I'm not big on conferences...you have to like...meet people and make small talk. And take a bunch of crappy swag to get to the good stuff.

I'm glad to be home, with a bottle of wine, with my PJs on. Tomorrow, I do nothing!

Parents just don`t understand - Mood:Good
Monday November 28 201110:19:29 PM |
My mom used to think that if she wanted to search for something, she could just type in www.whateverthef*ckI'mlookingfor.com and find it. So if she wanted a recipe for carrots she'd type in www.carrotrecipe.com. Although it sometimes annoyed me that she was incapable of learning how to operate a search engine, it's now one of those things that leaves me feeling really happy and pleased. I that about her.

I miss that lady an awful lot. She and Chick-Fil-A are the two things I dream most about.

How are are your parents out of touch?

It`s not that I hate God. Honestly. - Mood:Surprised
Friday November 25 20114:29:52 PM |
So, if it wasn't bad enough that I had to see on Facebook my dad's girlfriend's stupid posts about Jesus and God every other second. Now, my dad posts on my facebook http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXp6xcY5I... telling me it's his favorite song.

WHO IS THIS MAN? My dad always had a streak towards bad taste in music. My mom and I used to relish making fun of him and his love for Michael Bolton and Boy George. But this is like...out of the blue.

I think the biggest reason I don't like my dad's religious revival is I feel like he's turned into a different person who is a stranger to me.

So perturbed right now.

I`ll pumper YOUR nickel - Mood:Good
Friday November 18 20118:34:44 PM |
So...

Guess what I got today...TWO loaves of pumpernickel. I had a few slices with butter for lunch. I had difficulty putting it away. SO delicious. The only pumpernickel here is CRAP. I missed it so much.

And how did I get it? By giving a creepy (not really) internet guy my address! Whoever said giving out your address online was a bad idea was way wrong. You get free bread! He said it was a late birthday present!

Thank you, BSR!

Now if only I could get boiled peanuts and chick-fil-a.

I also got a Christmas tree. Not today. A few days ago. It's beautiful! The biggest we've ever had. Well, on our own. My family had big ones, but before this year, we always used a tiny 2 ft fake tree. This year we got a 6 ft one and it's so pretty. I it. Pics later. Not now.

I don't want to hear that we started Christmas too early. What would you miss if you moved?

Weekend of laziness...terminated... :-( - Mood:Good
Sunday November 13 201112:38:54 PM |
It's been a beautiful weekend. Friday I went out with my man and had a huge breakfast. Then, after a long period of digestion, we went to the arboretum. Although it was raining off and on, it was gorgeous, and gave me an excuse to wear my new rain boots! Unfortunately, due to rain, we weren't able to take many pictures. But I'm a sucky photographer, so it would have done the beauty of dem trees no justice anyway.

Then yesterday, I went to the spa, had a massage, and relaxed all day. Laziness to an extreme. Once James got home, we went out for drinks and appetizers, then to dinner. It was a really delicious evening!

I don't want to stop the lazy relaxation mode though! I have laundry to do, Sean T. waiting on me to get back to him, and a house to straighten up. Oh, and lessons to plan. But I don't wanna!

I`m not so sure about this! - Mood:Exhausted
Sunday November 06 20114:28:00 PM |
I started Insanity, the workout DVD thing.

Yesterday was the Fit Test. It doesn't give you a goal, but I'm pretty sure I failed.

Today was Day 2. I'm sore in places I didn't even know I had muscles.

And I have to keep this up for 60 days!

I'm skipping my birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve and Christmas.

But is the holiday season really the right time for this?! Probably not.

But hey...it'll be a headstart on my new year's resolutions...right?

I finally finished Lost. - Mood:Overwhelmed
Friday October 28 20111:59:34 AM |
So you could talk to me about that. Or other stuff. You know whatever floats your boat.

Things: Boss told me that she wants to promote me around March to assistant director, as a promotion in name only, with no real added duties, and yet, added salary. What's not to like?

School is annoying sometimes. I feel like some days I'm the only one maintaining energy and enthusiasm through the end of the day, and it's ahrd enough for me to be enthusiastic at the end of a long day, let alone to be the only one who is. I feel like sometimes my coworkers look down on me for being "too into" my job, if that makes any sense.

I'm going shopping this weekend for jeans and boots. Winter is coming and I wanna be prepared. Also going to the arboretum this Sunday.

YES WE HAVE LOOKING AT TREES!

What's going on in the world today (al-jazeera, al-jazeera)?

Picking gifts is less fun than picking noses. - Mood:Good
Friday October 14 201110:17:43 PM |
My dad's birthday is coming up, and I need to get him something. But the question of what is perplexing.

He just lost his job. We lost my mom a year ago. He's now really into church (for the first time in my entire life) and is kind of...different from how he used to be.

Any suggestions?

I occupied Seattle today. - Mood:Good
Sunday October 09 201112:08:27 AM |
A little.

Mostly I just joined for the march. But I was impressed by how democratic things were. When they decided to just plant their asses in the middle of the intersection, they took a vote on whether or not we should stay there or move. Then someone shouted, "Will we be arrested if we stay?" To which one of the megaphone holders replied, "I'm fairly certain it is not legal to occupy the street without a permit, so, it's possible". Then everyone voted to stay in the street anyway.

But I had to pee. So I left, found a potty, and when I got back, they'd apparently re-voted to take votes from the park/plaza, and they went there instead. By then it was late and I was hungry for dinner and tired. So I left. But it was fun!

My throat hurts a little from all the chanting. And I may be on the news, because I was in the background of some shots.

Attack of the GOO - Mood:Good
Friday October 07 20111:22:16 AM |
So...I'm watching the news tonight. And there's a story on about a mystery goo that has taken over Capitol Hill.

And they interview this guy who's car had been dirtied by the goo. And under his name they write "Goo victim".

Then they continue the piece. Later they interview a guy who works nearby. Under his name they write, "Goo watcher".

That was pretty much the best part of this week.

Well, that, and the fact that today was my last day of Work. Tomorrow I still have "work", but it's work from home day. Which means work while watching Lost day.

I've never cooked turnips. I just got some in my produce box. WHAT TO DO.

Hello! This is the 90`s. - Mood:Good
Friday September 30 201110:30:36 PM |
Do you remember how popular that phrase was?

Man. What are we now. The single digits? Nobody refers to this decade anymore because it's too damn complex. Nobody knows how to call it.

I had to write 42 individualized reports today. As I do every Friday. I'm starting to think this work is way suckier than my M-Th. But the parents like it a lot and it's a good tool of communication (I have to keep telling myself this or I'd be mad).

I'm trying to decide what to have for dinner. Any suggestions are welcome, although I have limited resources here at home. Tofu, beef, lamb patties, trout. And I'm not going out. Back-up plan is fried tofu with some vegetables. That will probably turn into the for real plan. UNLESS something brilliant happens.

It's time for a beer.

I`m typically not the "unfriending" type. - Mood:Good
Sunday September 25 20116:23:03 PM |
But...I'm appalled at how many "friends" I have on Facebook who have posted this: FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO...IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY

So, I'm unfriending everyone who has. This kind of stupidity will no longer be tolerated by this gal.

Other kinds of stupidity, inquire within.

Saturday September 17 201110:59:08 PM |
Today I went on a cruise ship for the first time ever.

It was super fun, I got super hungry, then I ate at a super buffet onboard the ship.

I'm also seriously and legitimately sucked into Lost.

Ana Lucia just died, and now Charlie is probably going to!

I'm going to go see Straw Dogs tomorrow. It will be great.

I had to write 40 reports yesterday. It was hell.

WHAT IS UP, motherf*ckas?

You know what always annoyed me? - Mood:Good
Friday September 16 201112:58:55 PM |
That you couldn't supersize your drink and microsize your fries for the same price as the regular meal. Sure, your system doesn't have anything in place to allow for that. But I never finish the regular size fries and I always need a large sweet tea, not a regular, so why must I supersize both!?

Also, when fast food joints (I recall this at McDonald's a few times) would have less food cost more money and more food cost less. Like, for instance, the double cheeseburger might have been cheaper than the regular cheeseburger. BUT I ONLY WANT THE REGULAR ONE. But at the same time, I want to be cheap. But not waste food.

I have fast food about once a month now. I miss Chick-fil-a so hard sometimes it hurts.

But I have plenty of bacon. Happy weekend, YT!

What has always annoyed you?

I was like... really productive today. - Mood:Good
Sunday September 11 201112:14:58 AM |
I unlocked Baby Luigi, the magikruiser, Bowser Jr., Funky Kong, AND Birdo.

I went to a stupid festival down the road.

And I cooked a REALLY super delicious dinner.

I really weekends. And that dinner. It's still hanging out in my mouth doing good things.

But...I did get killed today. That was a little sad.

1-My coworkers and boss. We went out to a lovely dinner tonight. We spent MAYBE five minutes on work related stuff. The rest was...let's get together and hang out and enjoy some food.

2-Phineas and Ferb. That's a funny ass show. I don't care who you are.

3-Fall. Especially the crunchy leaves part.

4-Crab, cheese, and bacon. Self explanatory.

5-Pulling the lint out of a lint trap

6-Fresh sheets on the bed

Laziness is likea frog sitting on a venus flytrap - Mood:Spent
Wednesday September 07 20119:38:23 PM |
Today was the first day of school. My bulletin board/wall was a big hit and awesome.

I think because I was anticipating that it would be SUPER MEGA INSANE CHAOTIC it was amazing. Set your expectations low, y'know.

Only a little crying today (whew). One of them was so cute and came right in to hang out and play but an hour and a half into it he decided he was ready to go home and became attached at the hip (literally, as I carried him the rest of the day) to me.

Now to pound through assessments before the week is out.

My house is a mess.

I don't care.

Beer and Mario Kart sounds like more fun than cleaning, don't you think? I'm just so tired! So much energy required for a successful day. So little left at the end.

E well.

I`ve never cooked with... - Mood:Good
Sunday September 04 201112:57:52 AM |
Red beets (My family only ever made pickled beets...delicious...but what).

Red pearl onions

Red Russian kale

WHY SO MUCH RED?

These are all coming in my next shipment from the farm. Along with arugula, cucumber, zucchini, baby bok choy, gala apples, white flesh peaches, white flesh nectarines, and (YAY) another cantaloupe.

I found a good looking recipe for a beet/goat cheese salad. But what about the red pearl onions?

And I thought kale was supposed to be green!

So...any ideas? What have you never cooked with?

Also, I had a meet-the-teacher event today where parents/kids came to meet us. It was insane. Too many names, too crowded, too crazy. But successful. Now here's hoping that there isn't a lot of separation anxiety on the first day of school.

Bananas - Mood:Sexy
Friday September 02 20114:32:55 PM |
This fruit is bananas. B A N A N A S.

A girl in my class sings that and it’s the cutest thing. She comes in every day with a new song. And she says, “I have a new song. It’s my Mom’s favorite.” And then proceeds to sing it in a high pitched 3 year old voice. I wish she didn’t have to grow up.

So something new happened to me the other day. I usually browse that area through the first set of doors at Barnes and Noble where they have SUPER cheap books and never find anything I want. But the other day, I browsed and found a book called Our Daily Meds about the growth of the pharmaceutical industry and the effects of marketing. It was $4. I’m really enjoying it.

New Belgium Brewing/Fat Tire has a really tasty fall seasonal beer called Hoptober.

McDonalds hot coffee lady is vindicated! - Mood:Good
Sunday August 28 20112:27:07 PM |
Wow. I feel bad for ever misjudging that incident.

In other news...I'm fixing to have a cup of normal-grade-hot coffee and get started on life.

Today I'm going to try the zucchini slice recipe that socio linked me to. Also, some other cooking plans on the agenda, including steak, salad, and baked potato (real, not microwave). I hardly ever REAL bake a baked potato because it takes so damn long!

Oh, and beating Bowser's castle in Mario. I think I might need a beer for that one.

What's up, y'all?

He'd have known how to deal with all the asswipes I encountered today.

Douche at Ross who was too busy being bored at work to give me a pleasant response to my question...you would have been SO DEALT WITH by my friend Larry David.

Bitchy family who took 100 items for school supplies into the EXPRESS lane at Target...man, you would have been told.

Stupid kids who tried to literally stand in our path as we left the store to try to get us to donate to their basketball team.

Ridiculous bitch who'd locked herself out of her car at the ATM and requested to use our phone only to find she didn't know anybody's number.

I encountered a lot of stupidity today.

I had something I wanted to ask you guys...but I forget....
