A little bitter... A little skinnier... A little greener

Yeah, so, I'm a little bitter. WHY THE F*** IS IT SO MUGGY OUT?!!?!? I can't take it. I feel my skin starting to crawl. UGH. I can't wait to go to work tonight just to get out of this heat! I definately can't live in NY forever. I've made my mind up. I want to try other places. I really feel that Seattle will be my next move. Maybe next year, maybe the year after. I don't know. I was looking at their average temps out there, and it's much better than here. I'd rather be cold than hot. Although I do like tanning, there are always booths for that :)

Plane tickets for Alaska were bought this week! Horray! I'm leaving July 17th and coming home July 27th. I'm hoping Fun_with_cheese will let me use his fancy 2000 cubic inch backpack he just got for his Czech Republic trip. I was thinking of making a stop in seattle on the way there so I can visit, but there's not enough time. I'd rather go with someone, and spend atleast a week or so. Maybe I'll go in October to break up my semester so I don't go stir crazy :)

Look what came in the mail!!!

10 balls of Rowan Polar is color Jaffa. It's such a soft yarn!

10 skeins of Rowanspun 4-ply in Turkish.

and 10 skeins of Rowanspun dk in Drizzle.

I'm in heaven :)

On another good note, I'm now down 19 pounds. Woot!

This month was Project Spectrum's GREEN month. I figured that I would be my own inspiration. This is my new awesome shirt from old navy. What a nice lime green :)

buttons, atkins, and a+p

Alright. Eveyone has to respond to this. I am debating on whether or not to buy a button maker! I can't decide between the 1" and the 1 1/4". Would anyone be interested if I did little button workshops for a very minimal fee giving you the use of the machine and the supplies? Machines are around $200 or less. I plan on making a line of buttons and maybe a line of magnets too. I could also take this machine to craft shows with some clip art or magazines and let kids make their own buttons. What do you all think?? I want to buy it in the next week if I'm going to get it at all. Just let me know if you'd be interested in using it. Thanks!

So my weekday class, Anatomy and Physiology is OVER. THANK GOD!! I was so sick of going to school 2x a week during the daytime. Not really fun when you work overnights. Here's a pic of my best bud Penny during our final exam.... I'm happy to say that we both passed. I don't know my letter grade yet though.

By the way- now I'm down 17lbs. YAYNESS. Here are some recent pics of me and some of my friends.

Me and Chase , and then Me and Tom- aka Bam Bam

So it's now my rule- you come over to my place, and you ARE getting a picture taken with me. Goofy or serious, doesn't matter.

Drunken man in pink pants???

It's 1:00am and I'm spackling my bathroom so I can paint it in the morning.

**knock** **knock**
(Who the hell is knocking at my door? )
Me: umm can I help you? (don't recognize this man)
Man: Yeah, well, did you know someone is beating on your car?
Me: Huh?
Man: Yeah- I just watched him try to smash your car in with a shovel. He looked drunk.
Me: Okay?
Man: Your car looks fine but I wanted you to know.
Me: umm okay. (apparently he lives below me)
*we proceed out to my car, both of us in pj's and slippers*
Me: Well, atleast he had the courtesy to leave me the shovel.
Man: I called the cops for you. They're already looking for the man.
Me: How far can a drunken man walk without the sherriff's finding him? I mean, he can't even walk straight.
Man: I don't know. He was walking really slow but I came in to call the cops.
Me: oh well. Hey- here come the cops.
*6 sherriff cars pull in- not just B'Ville police, but the sherriffs.*
Me: you think you sent enough cops?
cops: Well we're just doing our job.
Me: oh okay. well my car is fine. here's the shovel.
cops: atleast they left you the shovel.
Me: that's what I said!
cops: did you see the man?
Me: no- I was spackling my bathroom.
cops: At 1am?
Me: yes at 1am. I do things like that. (do they think i'm LYING??)
cops: ummm okay.
*cops took our information and inspected the car*
cops: We're going to have someone drive around all night to keep an eye out for your car. This usually doesn't happen in your neighborhood.
Me: Yeah whatever- I'm up all night anyways.
cops: We'll find this man for you.
man: He's in pink pj pants and a white shirt.
cops: What?
man: pink pants.
cops: umm okay.
Me: Well, I'm done out here. I'm going inside. If you need to talk more come inside cause I'm too cold.
*cops sat there looking at the undamaged car for another 30 minutes*

What the hell just happened? It's like something out of a retarted dream. Cops are so challenged sometimes.

Yeah so, you F***ing man in pink pj's, get a life and new pj bottoms cause you look like a girl, and leave my car the F*** alone. You're lucky I didn't see your ass cause I would've chased you and kicked you in your head - or better yet, smashed your skull in with the shovel. HAHA. Loser.
