Day 1

Hey all!
I am updating this from NEW YORK CITY!!!  I know, super cool. 
I only have a couple of pics, sorry, I will do my best to take more, but for now you will have to live with this.
My flight was uneventful, so that is good.  Is it just me, or aren't you supposed to have your cell phone turned off during flight?  Don't they tell you that like five times before you take off?  Well, two people in front of me had theirs on, and the flight attendant even saw them and still didn't do anything.  If we had gone down in a firey crash, I'm sure that was who we should have blamed.
I got to see the ocean on the flight in, and the plane took and nosedive turn towards the ocean and I freaked out a little, but didn't vocalize any of my inner turmoil.  I also saw the NYC skyline on the flight in, that was super cool, and I would have taken pictures but we didn't come up to it until after they had said no more electronics.  When it comes to flying I am a rule follower...  I don't want to end up in the Hudson, or in a firey crash... or on an island inhabited by polar bears and The Others... Wow, tangent.
Ok. So I am pretty tired, so I am going to leave you with a pic of me and Oliver, my new charge for the next month.  As you can see... its going to be an awesome month.

I really dislike when I am watching tv and someone comes in and they are talking so loud on the phone that I can't hear the tv.  Who was there first I ask you?  But its ok... I will just rant to cyber space.

Love Languages

I have decided that if my cat were to have a love language it would be touch... second being words. 
Now on to my real reason for this post.
It drives me nuts when people use their love language as a reason for doing things.  Like someone whos language is touch.  They go up and hug someone like me who really dislikes touch.  I can ask nicely for them to not hug me, and their response is "but touch is my love language!"  That is all well and good, but that is like me, whos love language is gifts, is like going into someones room and taking something and my response being "well my love language is gifts so I wanted this." 
Just a recent pet peeve of mine.
Have a great day!

I read in someones blog that it is bad blog etiquette to post more that one blog a day.  I am proving them wrong.  I am just so interesting that people want to read my ramblings as much as they can. 

In 2009...

I kept a list of all the books I read last year.  A roommate that I had gave me that idea.
And the grand number is.............
84... that comes out to 1.6 books a week.  I don't know how that compares to other years, and people for that matter... but I am impressed with my myself.  I will  post the books later... promise.


I got my cartilage on my left ear peirced again yesterday.  Now I feel all lopsided.  I had it peirced a few years ago and took it out because it got gross... I shouldn't have had it peirced with a gun.  So they redid it yesterday and now I feel like my left side is leaning way to far.  What am I going to do to balance this out???

Happy New Year!!!

How did I ring in the new year?  Falling asleep before midnight.  Yup, I am that cool.  My excuse is that my sister and I went shopping new years eve, so I was tired from that.  Yeah right.  How was I woken up on the new year?  I could hear the cat crying, but I couldn't figure out where she was at.  Turned out she was in the front closet.  She could only have been in there for 6 or 7 hours, but I still felt bad for her.  So I scratched and scratched and scratched her head.  And then she got a treat, just because I felt so bad.
I have a couple post that are running through my head, and I PROMISE I will get to them. 
Have a great day!!!
