Something New

Hello everyone!

I have made the official decision to move from this blog from blogspot to WordPress.

Come along with me by clicking here.

And here's to moving on to bigger and better things!  :)

Today has been an interesting day so far.  I feel complainy.  I just want to sit around and complain about shit that doesn’t matter.  Not that I would consider myself to be in a bad mood or anything like that… I just think that being all complainy sounds like fun today.  That being said, I’m bipolar about my hair today.  First, it was shitty looking.  Then, it seemed fine.  Then I really loved it.  Then I thought it looking shitty again…  My poor hair!  Can’t catch a break.  I dunno what I think of it right now cause I’m too busy thinking about wanting to complain about the heat.  And my shoes.  And the fact that I’m hungry and at work.  God, it’s just one of those days!  I don’t like it.  I don’t care for myself like this cause all of my complainy thoughts just consume me.

I am starting to notice the downfalls of now being active and exercising enough.  I was actually talking to A about it earlier today (before I got in trouble for being too chatty) and I have been so unmotivated lately.  Weirdly enough, I am more tired and worn out and have had this constant headache and am breaking out and am just less wanting to do stuff.  I need to start getting back in my groove to exercising.  Cause it sucks to feel like this.  Maybe that’s why I just want to be all complainy too.  Hmm...

Electric Avenue

So I think it’s safe to say that I am blog-tarded. haha I am having a really hard time trying to figure all the features of WordPress! S has told me on numerous occasions and after seeing how much better the same Pearls Before Swine cartoon looked on his page, I am actually considering taking this blog to WordPress.  A part of me just wants to quit trying and go back to what I know here at blogspot… but at the same time, I am so determined to figure this shit out to make the switch! I might need someone who is WordPress literate over my shoulder to help me out here shortly to keep my frustration at bay.

I also am just an idiot in general... here are two recent situations in which I condsider myself idiot-worthy.  First, I got this new plant garden thingy that is super cute!  It's about a 4-ounce pot and had a condensed dirt pellet and some seeds and picture instructions that were:  1) put dirt in pot, 2) pour 2 ounces of water in the pot, 3) add seeds.  Well I did all that.  But then it didn't tell me what to do next.  So the next day I gave it some water...  Well, "some" is a considerable understatement.  Cause I'm pretty positive I drowned my f*cking plant.  :(  Okay, situation number two.  Decided that it would be an awesome idea to shower today.  Since I'm basically a hippie anymore and try to shower as little as I can get away with (thanks C for showing me the great perks of hippie-ness), it was actually one of the best ideas I've had all day.  I also thought that it would be a wonderful idea to start the dishwasher cause it was full and the dishes were dirty!  Also a stellar idea.  However, like the idiot I am, I started the dishwasher AND THEN jumped in the shower...  yeah, I got both scalded and frost bite multiple times in that 20 minute period.  I'm pretty sure that was God's way of punishing me for having two such good ideas in quick succession.  I think I deserve that Idiot of the Day award.  In fact, I've already got my acceptance speech all ready...  :)

What It's Like

Okay. Ima say this real quick, so don't blink. Since the beginning of this year with him being featured in some really stellar singles and his immense talent and pretty much the fact that he is *the* one and only successful white rapper, even now in his late 30s...  God. I never thought that I'd be one to admit this.... IamdefinitelyanEminemfannow. There. I said it.  Don't make me use the "f" word again.

That being said, enjoy Love The Way You Lie, Eminem feat. Rihanna below. These two artists put together are phenomenal, in my opinion!

Found myself another hilarious blog today!  I'm Not Benny.  This dude's name is Tim and the opening line of his profile is "I was born on my birthday, which I always thought was considerate timing on my part."  haha  How could you not already love this guy?!  Check it out.

Had one of the most kick ass dinners tonight, thanks to my "wifey" D.  Rotisserie chicken, corn, dark greens and stuffed mushrooms.  YUM.

I can't believe I'm not fallen over asleep yet.  It has been a long ass day, and of course - like an idiot - I did not go to bed early like I should have.  I do have to say that reflecting on the day that has past, I can't say that I am particularly proud of some decisions I made.  It was a good day, yes.  But it was not one of those great days.  Sitting here now that it's about over I can't say that I am too pleased with myself.  I'm happy!  But disgusted.  Aw well, guess I can just hope for a better tomorrow!

Went walking around Liberty Park for the first time in awhile.  First time I had visited since the oil leak fiasco... which is still slowly coming along, but not 100% and makes me really sad now that the problem has hit - literally - so close to home.  Anyway!  It's a gorgeous day out today and I had a great time and almost wanted to just keep going around and around but decided that 4 miles was plenty.  There were a few interesting/awesome characters at the park today (as usual) and now that I'm home, I thought I'd write a few of the best ones little anonymous notes from myself:

Dear Veteran Roller Skating Dancing Singing Dude,

Never have I witnessed someone having as much fun on old-school roller skates.  You were jammin' to your tunes via those sweet spins and moves on your skates, all while singing aloud and waving at everyone you passed - myself included, each of the 4+ times you passed me.  I could tell that Short Asian Man who was rollerblading behind you was jealous of your speed, talent, and charisma.  And your skates.  And your hat.  And your short shorts.  I look forward to seeing a future performance from you in the future.  And thank you for serving our country.


Dear Sunburned Toothpick-Limbed Thick Shirtless Short Man,

Can I buy you some sunscreen and aloe vera?  When you ran passed me all I could think about was how much your skin must be in pain.  And how short your shorts were.  And the fact that your t-shirt was in your hand and not on.  It also amazed me that your short legs and arms were barely there, they were so skinny!  You were pretty speedy though...  Keep it up.  Consider sunscreen.


Dear "Reading" Wheelchair Guy,

You need to spruce up your "staring at the running women" skills.  Clearly you weren't reading your book, nor did you make much of an effort to even pretend you were.  Maybe consider not sitting so close to the path, or wearing sunglasses, or not moving your head so obviously when staring at the running women.  Then again, you are a man... and I can't think of a man who successful ogles at women unnoticeably... so maybe you're off the hook...

You're welcome,

Dear Biker Dad With The Cute Little Bike-Riding Kiddos,

What a great way to spend Father's Day!  Your kids are adorable and you guys seemed to be having the best time!  I loved following you guys for that short time and wish that I had spent my morning biking around with my dad!  Too cute.  Happy Father's Day.

The Undeveloped Story

A girl couldn't have asked for a better father.  You mean the world to me, Dad.  Thank you for all that you have taught me and for being one of the greatest role models in my life.  I love you more than words can express.  You are my man forever.  Today, this one's for you.  LOVE YOU DADDY!  Happy Father's Day  :)
