shit, i ain't lying! check it out.

isn't she lovely?

so my neighbor Char-char was getting
rid of some stuff and look what I was
lucky enough to come across:



I put her on my coat
and now I look cute.

Hello, Hello!

I got home from my work trip to Oahu
on Sunday and headed to the Frontier
so I could stuff my face with this:
I know.
Then later that evening I had Thai food
with the boys and was in a state of euphoria.
The next morning, I saw God.

ANYHOO...
I can't sleep on red-eyes because my ass
goes numb and that's a very uncomfortable
way to sleep, so I watched the in-flight flick,
Ghost Town, with the Office creator/genius,Ricky Gervais.
Check it out... although it's very predictable,
it's cute and witty. And Kristen Wiig's also in it.

I had a great time on my work trip.
I ate a lot (as always), worked, sang
@ Karaoke, saw sweet dolphins up close,
witnessed locals gutting fresh fish(2 diff
occasions!),took pictures like a tourist
and enjoyed the time away from the office.
It always helps when I get to travel with
a really nice girl who, although not nearly
as...bitchy(??) as I, can always join in on
the eye-rolling and shit talking that is,
lets face it, inevitable. Here are some pics
from the short week away:
the best shrimp truck on the island...
i ate ALL that shrimp and loved it.



...cute dolphin and beautiful Diamond Head...


... cook your own steak...
while enjoying one of the best. songs. ever.

then rock the house with a classic, "You Ain't Woman Enough".

me being tourist-y.






more later, gotta eat some Onion Soup.

also, one of our chickens, Hazel, is laying
mad amounts of eggs, 4 days in a row, but
that's a whole other post... stay tuned, chickenheads!

Friday, December 05, 2008

hey hey hey!

having a good time on the
island, hope all of you are
well!

going to the north shore today,
looking forward to it. and to
shrimp trucks. word.

loves!

a.d.i.d.a.d.

All Day I Dream About Don...
my latest obsession, Mad Men

unless you've been living under a rock,
then you probably know this is one of the
best shows on television right now. if you
haven't seen it, please do so. you're certain
to pick up a nasty smoking habit if you are
not currently on the nicotine.
incentive.
i know.

anyhoo...

i usually don't like getting outta bed
to start the work week, not sure anyone
does, but today wasn't so bad. i think
knowing that i get a whole day off on
thursday (with pay!) to cook and eat,
eat and cook helps. yes, a whole day.

i really enjoy waking up to feed the
chickens, also known as 'the girls'...
they are so weird. anyhow, they wake up
early and want to eat... a lot. they like
to talk and peck and run about all nimbly
bimbly
. they sure are cute. and weird.
Photobucket
(my favorite girl, hazel.)

oh, and still no eggs.

also, i had posole for lunch today... yum.

(and you thought i couldn't be more random.)

Happy Monday~ the "I WANT THIS" edition.

Yes, the time of the year to think of (yourself) others and
the things they need (want) is creeping upon us (already?!).

In case any of you were wondering, here's a little list of
the things I need (want). Feel free to pick out something
for yourself..

1. This shotgun shell thermos.


2. To "run into" my (other) hot, Scottish boyfriend and
my (other) hot, older boyfriends while filing in N.M. ,
Ewan McGregor and George Clooney... this version of them:


3. Homemade grilled cheese sandwiches... like, 100 of them.


See, I'm fairly easy to please...

FRIDAY= good times.



hi kids, hope you're all well!

as always, i love the weekends...
so much to do and it's almost
already the end of the month which
means Halloween and soon after that,
Dia De Los Muertos... which translates
into lots of fun and activities. we plan
on going to a parade in the valley and
i'm going to take lots of pics with my
loverly holga camera! it's been too long...

this weekend i am going to make sugar skulls
and i'm pretty damn excited! mine won't be
edible though because i got all sorts of beads
and rhinestones and shit to decorate them.
AND they're way to sweet to eat anyway. i'll
post pics later next week.

another AWESOME thing we're doing is
attending a rally for barack obama and i am
thrilled. odds are it'll be super packed and
barack will be the size of an ant... i don't
care, i wouldn't miss it for anything!

well, i should get back to work and
to playing scramble (a word game/time
killer) on facebook.

i didn't want to do anything but follow him
all over the place... basically, stalk him.


(thanks a, for reminding me of this!)

Happy Wednesday

It's already Wednesday, can you believe it?

Anyhow, here's a little rundown of what
I've been up to lately... exciting. I know.

1. Had a really great time this weekend at my
first ever photo show. Basically 20 people
were chosen to display and possibly sell a
photo of choice at a bar Downtown. I was
just happy to hang my photo so imagine my
excitement when it sold almost immediately!
A lucky (+ nice!) guy is now the owner of
this, except REAL. 8x8 was the photo size:

I took pictures of it hanging with my little
tag info but they came out too dark. I may
post them anyway.



2. Watched a silly yet entertaining movie...
Wanted with good looking people, I might add.
Like this fella. He's short but very handsome.

3. Excited to visit D.C. again and my bff... of
course we're going to a show...Built to Spill who've
I've seen many a time but are always so. damn. good.

I suppose that's about it...anything exciting on your side?

Thursday, August 21, 2008

OH HELL YEAH!


Girl crush Jenny Lewis will be in the 'Burque
in few weeks @ the Sunshine Theater and I'm
sooo excited! Any local gals up for the show,
give me a holla! Woo-hoo!
