New Works Festival

I get to go to the ballet tonight and, I'm excited. It's the last of our Season tickets. which is kind of sad. But, I'm so happy my Aunt got them and took us this season. I love watching, but it makes me wish I stuck with it as a kid and could still do it now... oh well, I'll have to stick with observation, I guess.



I'm so god damn excited.
I got my Federal Tax return check in the mail yesterday. It's beautiful. It will be even more beautiful when it pays for my back piece. I have been wanting this dan tattoo for years, and now that for the first time in my life, I'm actually independently financially stable, I can do it!!!! A little irresponsible. But, what the hell. You only live once. And, I've been doing a pretty good job at being responsible for a good period, I think. I'm allowed.
I want it done now!

Hudgy, here I come. I'll try not to cry... But, I can't promise anything.


I can't wait.

New Favorite.

Samantha Who?
My sister in law introduced me to this phenomenon...
samantha who?
It might my be my favorite, like full on, right now.
I want there to be more available for me to watch.
I Love Christina Applegate. She's so cute, and her character in this show is awesome.
And I love ALLLL her outfits. She is my new style icon for work fashion, at least.
I have been hunting for cute shift dresses so I can come to work all snazzy!!!

I'm so happy to have something new to get excited about, even if it is a TV show.

Soundtrack to my mood.

This where I'm at. I Love music for helping me through just about anything.
I couldn't pick one, because just about EVERY SONG by Nickel Creek right now speaks to me, and it's almost unbelievable.

Where am I today? I wish that I knew
'Cause lookin' around there's no sign of you
I don't remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from your lead

I'm holding my heart out but clutching it too
Feeling this short of a love that we once knew
I'm calling this a home when it's not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed

Standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses
I have my reasons why

We get distracted by the dreams of our own
But nobody's happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
Others have excuses
I have my reasons why
With so much deception it's hard not to wander away
It's hard not to wander away, it's hard not to wander away

however you feel
whatever it takes
whenever it’s real
whatever awaits me
whatever you need
however so slight
whenever it’s real
whenever it’s right

I’ve been thinking long and hard about the things you said to me
like a bitter stranger
now I see the long and short, the middle and what’s in between
I could spit on a stranger

whatever you feel
whatever it takes
whenever it’s real
whatever awaits me
whatever you need
however so slight

Honey I’m a prize and you’re a catch and we’re a perfect match
like two bitter strangers
now I see the long and short of it and I can make it last

You gotta leave me now
You gotta go alone
You gotta chase a dream
One that’s all your own
Before it slips away

When you’re flying high
Take my heart along
I’ll be the harmony
To every lonely song
That you learn to play

When you’re soaring through the air
I’ll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I’ll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

I keep looking up
Awaiting your return
My greatest fear will be
That you will crash and burn
And I won’t feel your fire

I’ll be the other hand
That always holds a line
Connecting in between
Your sweet heart and mine
I’m strung out on that wire

I’ll be on the other end
To hear you when you call
Angel you were born to fly
And if you get too high
I’ll catch you when you fall
Catch you when you fall

Your memory's the sunshine
Every new day brings
I know the sky is calling
Angel let me help you with your wings

When you’re soaring through the air
I’ll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I’ll still be there
When you come back down

Take every chance you dare
I’ll still be there
When you come back down

There’s a kind of emptiness
That consumes you
There’s a kind of hunger
That can eat you up
There’s a cold and darker side
Of the moonlight
And there’s a lonely side of love

With you here
Baby I am strong
No sign of weakness
With you gone
Baby I am hanging by a thread

There’s a certain kind of pain
That can numb you
There’s a type of freedom
That can tie you down
Sometimes the unexplained can define you
Sometimes silence is the only sound

With you here
Baby I am strong
No sign of weakness
With you gone
Baby I am hanging by a thread

I LOVE MUSIC, But the Lyrics make the song.

Serious case of the Mondays...

Case of the Mondays

I'm EXTREMELY unmotivated today. What else is new though?

I've been finding myself horribly irritable and short tempered in the past week and a half... :/ I hurt my wrist banging on my laptop when the mouse wasn't working properly. I nearly destroyed my favorite jacket when I couldn't get certain cat hair off it. (THAT was a rough night) And I threw my phone and Sims CD's against the wall Saturday night when my computer didn't work. I HATE acting that way. But, I'm trying to be so calm and relaxed, and then something tiny happens and I just BLOW up.

Take a Deep Breathe, and carry on...
Time for LUNCH!

Cranky pants Mcgee.

I'm super crabby now.
My other computer is like dead all of the sudden, but finally.
And my whole plan for this Saturday night is ruined.
I kinda feel like nothing has been working out lately. aghhhh!
I just want to play SIMS2. boo.
I may officially be in the market for a new computer.
I don't want to live without The Sims.

Okay, now what to do...
At least I have Anchorman to keep me company. I Love you Ron Burgandy.

an Idea.

I've been really wanting to "home" up my apartment, so that I can enjoy it more. Currently I don't spend much time there. I even sometimes avoid it. Sad, I know. Because, it is REALLy nice Apartment, or condo actually. Anyway. When I first moved in, I was in heaven there after living in a kinda dumpy 1 bedroom duplex with my sister. We shared a teeeeeny tiny bathroom, and I turned the living into my bedroom. It was neat, but not super enjoyable. So moving into this large 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, where I took the Master bedroom at, was AWESOME, to say the least. So, that's some background.
Now, I can't really explain why I avoid it now, because I don't fully understand it even. It really just doesn't feel like a "Home" is the best I can do. When I am there I love just climbing in bed with my laptop and watching tv. I like my room a lot when I've cleaned it. So, when I home at home with my sister we are usually in our own rooms watching tv. and it's usually only on the few weeknights after work we are even home. We frequently bombard my brother and sister in laws house and hang out there until bedtime.
We don't really have people over, I would, and we have. The location of our place is kinda lame, and parking pretty much blows when the homies and their hondas decide to gather at their buddies house across the street (I hate them).
Anyhow, I have been thinking of ways to try to make to make our place a more enjoyable place to be. Starting with the Living Room, where it is kinda of always cold, because we don't turn on the heater out there. But, that won't be a problem now that summer is coming. I have 2 futons in the living room, not too comfy... :( My sister in law is taking one home, which will open up some SPACE!!! in there which I'm kinda stoked about.
So my idea is to make the other futon, super cozy for tv viewing! And here's how:

I want to lay the futon flat like a bed against the wall, and then have 3 Large throw pillows, like Euro size bed pillows as throw pillows against the back for cushions, and then behind those for actual like back couch cushions... now, bear with me here. I'm on a budget. I noticed that Marshalls sells doggie beds, like big doggie beds, that look like this:
I was thinking I could put 2 against the wall, and then have the large throw pillows in front. Now, I would cover the Cushions (doggie beds), and Large throw pillows in similar fabric so it doesn't look like a total mess.
It's a little different, but once I've completed, I'll post how it turned out...

OH! And I bought a jug of Liquid Starch, finally!!!! I have been wanting to get some to test a wallpaper idea I heard about...
If I can make my place look sick. I will throw a PARTY!!! hell, maybe I'll even learn to cook for it.

Kelly Morris!

I was a little late to work this morning, but that sad thing is I could have been on time, but this was on TV...

saved by the bell- the wedding

I was still getting ready, but this totally slowed me down.

And I had never seen it!!!!
I've watched a lot of Saved by the bell... But, clearly not all of it. I think I need to catch up, because I never even knew they got married. But, I'm so glad they did.
I wish I had gotten to see the whole thing. I'll have to keep my out for it to replay again, and record that shit onto my DVR, or just start recording the whole series... Yes.

The beginning.

Welcome to my blog.
I'm hoping it will help pass the time while I'm in front of a computer screen for 8 hours a day at least.
