I had over two weeks off of work.
It made me crazy.  Good thing I am back this week... I have to work a double today... and then nights tomorrow.  It's okay though... I was bored out of my mind.

The other day when I was working evenings... I went to the gift shop on my break to look around shop for christmas presents.
When I went in there was a couple ladies talking about politics, one was the lady that works there, and the other was the lady was visiting someone.  They were both of the older retiree age, late 60's early 70's.
As I was checking out the lady that didn't work there asked me point blank who I was going to vote for.   I kinda grimaced and said I didn't know, I didn't like any of the candidates.  She immediately got a very worried look on her face and said that it is VERY important that I vote because this affects my generation the most.  I agreed with her, but said I just wasn't that impressed with anyone, I just knew that I wanted the current president out of office.  She was very happy that I said that.  "You need to be praying about who to vote for, and pray for getting this guy out of office."  I again agreed with her... and kinda looked away so she would get that I was ready for this conversation to end... And then she goes, "are you a born again Christian?"  I whipped my head around and said yes right away, because I was thinking holy crap... look at the cahones on this old bird!  She nodded her head and said "yes, I could see the light of God sparkling in your eyes."  Then she kept talking about praying and that being a believer was the most important thing... and how the female candidate was a fellow believer.
What a sweet old lady!
But I have been pondering this conversation since then.
How do I be more vocal about my beliefs?  I am constantly afraid of persecution, especially where I work.  How do I be like the old lady, willing to talk to anyone about what I strongly believe in?
I know I don't have the answers right now... I will just have to keep thinking on them!

This is only a few days late... Like almost a week... But happy thanksgiving!

You don't appreciate your knees until your without one

So yesterday I was walking to human resources at work to interview for another position. As I was walking I tripped on a rock and fell on another rock on my knee. I honestly didn't think much of my knee and wad more worried that my pants were dirty and I scuffed my favorite shoes. When I got there I went to the bathroom and checked my knee out... It was a little bloody, but I wasn't that worried.
I went into HR and asked for some tape... And told the girl why... And she wanted me to see the nurse quick. So I was just like ok no big deal. The nurse came in a looked at my knee and said"oh you need to have that checked out.". I still didn't think it was that big of a deal... And I didn't want to go to the ER and have to pay a huge deductible so I tried to get into my doctors office which was just a block away. Turned out they were all still at lunch... So I had to go to the ER anyway.
I got checked in any everything no problem... The nurse comes in to clean it and it HURT. Like I thought I was just a scrape up until that point, but when she put water on it I wanted to cry. She was just like we can wait till the doctor gets here and numbs it up and then clean it.

So I started writing this almost a week ago... I would have finished it but it is harder than I thought to type on my phone and try to finish a post.

Long story short I have been in a leg immobilizer for the last week. It is super annoying to have that thing in my leg and not be able to walk prppey. It takes me forever to get anywhere, an I have to put the seat almost flat in my car to get in and out.

Did I mention that there are only three stitches? Yeah.
All that for three stitches.
Anyway... I glad to have this posted finally... I don't know why it has been weighing on me so much, but it has.
On the craptastic upside, I haven't worked all week because of the potential to get hurt at work... So now I won't get to go on a ten day vacation in January like I thought, if at all.
Hopefully I will be able to pictures in... And if not... Too bad!

I got a new phone...

And I am posting from it right now!!!
Seriously... iPhones are amazing!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011


I strongly dislike sitting in a chair that someone has just vacated, and the chair is still warm. 
Seriously.  There are few things that gross me out more than butt heat.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

I was going to write a post last night... but I couldn't get blogger to work on my iPod... so I decided it wasn't worth it.
So of course today that means that I cannot remember what yesterday's blog post was about.
Oh well.
I do want to petition whomever reads this for prayer for my SIL, Autumn, she went to the ER on Saturday night in extreme pain and it turned out she had a Pulmonary Embolism.  She's only 19.
Oh, I guess if you don't speak medical-ese like I do all the time, a pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the lungs.
Scary stuff.
Happy November!

Harry Potter

I love love love Harry Potter.
So much so that I haven't seen the last two movies and only watched half of the Half Blood Prince.
You might say to yourself, "it doesn't seem like she loves it that much if she hasn't even watched the movies yet." I have also only read the last two books once a piece.
There is a very good reason.
I don't want the series to be over.  After I finished the 7th book I had a hole in my heart like I lost a friend!  I am very worried that that is going to happen again if I watch the movies.
I also feel very judged by people who know how much I love Harry Potter, but I won't even watch the movies.  It's only the last two.  Relax.
I feel better now.

Also, I am anxiously waiting for this to be open to the public.
And... I am going here on vacation this year... and we just bought the plane tickets!!!!

Lazyness. Pure lazyness.

Yes I realize that is has been almost a month since I have last posted.
For shame.
I have so much to update you all on... but alas... I don't want to take the time to right now.
Get over it.
I will give you, dear Bleaders (that's blog readers), a synopsis of what has been going on, and hopefully what I will be able to update you with soon.  Like this weekend.  But it all depends.
I had a birthday.  But not much happened... so I don't really have any pictures.  At all.
I went to the Omaha zoo with my friend... but we both forgot our cameras... so no pictures... except ones that I took with my phone, but I can't figure out how to get them on here... and we are going on Monday for the September birthdays... so get over it.
I went to The Band Perry concert at the fair.  It. Was. Amazing.  I do actually have pictures!!! But they are still on my camera and I haven't taken the time to take them off.
Oh, did I mention that all I have been doing is working?
All I have been doing is working.
I work six days this week... I have done two... four more to go...
Also I decided that September is going to be alcohol free.  Dang it.  Now that I have told it to my Bleaders, I better keep it up.
Since it is going to be alcohol free... It's 0923 and I am finishing a bottle of wine.  Keep in mind that I have been up since yesterday... so yes.  I'm not an alcoholic.  Believe me, if I was, my mom would be all over that nonsense.
Mostly my reasoning for cutting out alcohol is I need to lose 25-50 lbs.  I don't really want to... I really am happy with the way I am.  Buuutttt at my yearly checkup with the doc, he nicely hinted that I wouldn't have so many acid reflux problems if I were to lose weight.  Dang it.
So... I am cutting out ETOH first. For those of you not in the medical field, that's alcohol.
I also have lab orders for the celiacs test... yet again.  They did the blood test last year and it was negative, but my mom is CONVINCED that I have it.  She has it, my sister does, my aunt and my grandma all do as well.  So the good doctor is looking into it, to see if that is culprit of my stomach problems.
But, really.  If the test was negative last year... what are the chances it will be positive this year???
I could do GF if I have to.
So I have written WAY more than I planned to... so there you have it.
Most of the events of august.
Oh, there was one more thing... but I really don't want to go into it right now.
Maybe next month.

Dear creator of Pinterest,

Thank you so much for the amazing-ness that is Pinterest.
I do want to ask you if you know how much time is being wasted there...  Not that I am admitting to anything.
I just about peed my pants when I found a app for my iPod this morning.  Again... I'm not admitting to spending inordinate amounts of time on there or anything... just saying...
It's pretty cool.

Wedding madness

Yup.  My baby brother got married this weekend.  
I really like Autumn... I think she is quite good for him :)

 The  whole fam... minus Emma who "overslept" for the wedding... but that's a whole other story.

 The parents of the couple stood up for them.... it was all very casual.  
My Grandma is a pastor and she officiated the ceremony.

 At the park for the reception... Their colors were blue, lime green and fuchsia...
The bride let me do some of the decor... That made me happy :)

It was very beautiful.

my favorite

My favorite days are when I just smile and nod.

The people around me clearly don't know what is going on,

So I just smile and nod.

Its been one of those days.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I love love loved this book.  
The premise is the author, Ransom Riggs, had all these vintage photographs that were a little off.  So the story is centered around the photos.  
The story is a boy, Jacob, grew up hearing about an island that his grandfather grew up on.  He would tell him fantastical stories about the children that lived there, some could fly, one was invisible, and so on.  He eventually grew out of the stories, and dismissed them as just stories.  
When his grandfather dies, he has one last thing to tell Jacob, and it is a rather cryptic sentence.
His last words leads Jacob to search for the people in the photo's and finds an amazing adventure.
I know the cover looks a bit creepy.  I would agree with you wholeheartedly.  Some of the pictures in the book are creepy.  But there is nothing that is scary.
I am HUGE wimp.  Like sleep with the lights on wimpy.  
This was not scary.  It. was. amazing.
I want to read it again... but my sister has already claimed it.  
Bummer.  And I have a list of people that are waiting to borrow it from me.  
This was the authors first book, and I am super impressed.  It was written as a young adult book, but it was so well written that all ages could enjoy it.  
I loved the voice of the author... he was clearly very smart, but doesn't "talk down" to the reader.
I can't even explain how much I LOVED this!
There is a video of an explanation of the book, but I like this one way more that Ransom also recorded.  It's different abandoned houses in Europe.  I love watching ones like that, things were left like the owners were coming back, but never did.
Now go read it!

My sister and I are super cool.

I KNEW it!

I just thought that this article was freaking hilarious.


It's like North Dakota is the ugly stepchild of the US!

Movies from the 90's were the best

Keep in mind that I was under 12 for the majority of that time... but we watched a lot of kid movies.
It was only in the last 10 years that I have come to appreciate the other "adult" movies from that era.

Because really, who doesn't love the Muppets?

We watched this over and over and then over some more.  

 Macaulay Caulken... who can't love that face?
 I mean really.  
A little lamer than the other two... but still really good :)

I know there are more... but I'm sort of distracted...
We are watching Rookie of the Year... and Gary Busey is in it... Sirena didn't know that he was every actually in movies... she thought he was famous just for being crazy.

I always feel as though I should have some cool graphic or picture in every post so people can see how cool of a blogger I am because I put a design into everything... or at least a picture.  But really this is more about I need to vent... I don't really care (alright, just la little) if anyone reads this... but knowing I put this on the world wide web makes it seem more fantastic than it really is.
I want to be a writer someday.  I don't know if I am any good, but I feel like there are stories that are waiting to be penned.  This is just practice.  
So, sorry to all who read this and think, "what was she thinking"... I am just practicing.
There is so much more to come.

Army Strong

I'm in an army strong family.  My brother is in the Army, and we couldn't be more proud.  

This past Independence Day I feel a particular burden for those serving our country.

I don't think people get what these men and women are giving up for what they believe in.  When they sign on the dotted line they are saying they will lay it all on the line.  They will fight for their country, and for those who live there.

Why don't more people appreciate their sacrifice?  

Its not just the soldiers that are affected, they have wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, children, siblings and so on.  They are protecting our freedoms.

Sure we complain about this or that because it inconveniences us, but don't you think that they are that much more inconvenienced?

I am so proud of my brother for choosing to serve in our countries armed forces.  

Sure he might be kind of a jackass sometimes... but I think I can excuse that.  Because he is protecting us.

Our soldiers are coming home scarred not only physically, but mentally as well.  They have seen things that we can never begin to understand.  

I can't stress how deeply I feel about our Heroes.  

Please show them the respect they deserve.

If you see a soldier out in the store, on the street, in an airport,
THANK them.

If you would like more ways to show your appreciation, please follow these links.


I love granola bars.  I've been eating them a ton...
I need to learn how to make them, so they at least have some  healthy stuff in them.
Also, I have been watching dvds of the tv  show Las Vegas.
So of course now I really want to go to Vegas.
But I also want to take a million other trips.
Oh, I would love to be independently wealthy and never have to work again.
But alas, I'm not.
It's ok though... I really do like my job.

I like facebook.
I think its a pretty cool tool to keep in touch with your friends.
There are also some pretty cool games to waste your time with  play.
And you know how you have those friends that you don't talk to any  more...
Never were really friends to begin with...
And then you were thinking about them one day, and think, oh I want to look them up and see how they are doing...
And then you find out that they deleted you?
Because the only reason you were keeping in touch with them was because every so often you wanted to stalk them see what they were up to.
I'm not gonna lie... I have been ruthless in getting rid of people I don't want clogging up my friends list... but when you find out they deleted you...
Its weird.
It's like "they have no right to delete me... just... because..."
I know.
It's weird.
But I'm a tad neurotic...

Also.  On the subject of neurosis...
Nevermind.  I don't want to subject you to that. :)

It's my last day of having wisdom teeth.  Weird.  At least I'm not having all my teeth pulled like my dad did a coupe months ago.
I keep joking with myself that I'm not going to have any more wisdom.
But that can't be true because wisdom is something that is learned more than inherited, or grown (like teeth).
God, in all his infinite wisdom, gave me this life.  I don't understand half the time why it is THIS life, or how I am HERE right now, but I know that it is the right place to be.
It's hard.  My younger brother is getting married.
I moved back in with my parents in January and still haven't found a place to live.
But God said to be here right now.
o I am.
Life sucks' you know?
Buy you're here for a reason.
So make the best of it.

I got a sunburn more than a week ago that was so bad that it blistered... Then it got a little infected.  Then one of the nurses at work told me to put an antibiotic on it.  So I did.  And now it is half the size that it was.  And because it is healing... I want to scratch.  Badly.  But I won't, mostly because there is a gooey layer of Bacitracin oinment on in and I don't want to get it on my fingers.  Next time I get a sunburn this bad, which knowing me, it won't take long, I will take pictures.  Because really, someone should document what the sun does to a basically albino person.
I started writing the above post last year... and never got around to finishing it... and recently I got another sunburn like that one, but not as bad...  But I didn't take any pictures, partly because it was in a weird spot, and mostly because I didn't remember that I said I would take pictures.
Also, I wrote din't and spell check didn't correct it.

I have a confession

I always made fun of country music.
I thought it was a bunch of hicks singing about their tractors and beer.
Sometimes it is.
But it is so much more.
I am so sorry.  I should never have been so harsh.
It was a slow take over.
It started with Carrie Underwood.  Mostly because she had the same name as me.
Then Taylor Swift started creeping in...  But she was so mainstream that I didn't really notice.
Then The Band Perry.
That was the final straw.
I started listening to a local country station.  It was preset in my car.
Then there was another one preset.
Don't get me wrong, I still listen to the top 40 type music, but I have added to my repertoire of late.  I can not tell you how hard it was to figure out how to spell repertoire.  I still didn't use it in quite the right context, but it will have to suffice.
I can now listen to the country stations and tell you who it is singing... as long as it is a popular song.
It's weird.
I'm changing.
Whoulda thought?

I had not intended to wait this long before posting something again... my bad.  I have a couple post in the works that are coming soon!

Thursday, June 2, 2011

I have been trying really hard to be content with where I am at in life.
It's hard though.
I'm trying.
This is hard to write without sounding whiny...
I had expectations for where my life would be at this time.
So far I haven't accomplished, or found what it was that I wanted.
I'm getting there.
Don't get me wrong, I am happy with where I am right now... It's just not where I thought I would be by now.
Not to worry.

This is just a picture from the farm that my dad grew up on... Love!

I had something

That I was going to write about.  
But I decided that it was pretty heavy, and was unsure as to whether or not I want to share it with blog-land.  Also I don't know who (if anyone) reads this,  and I don't want to shine a negative light on my life...
So yes.
I did paint my finger and toe nails matching pink.  
They are really bright.
Thats all.

Expensive flip flops just don't make that satisfying "flip" "flop" noise when you walk like cheap Old Navy or Target ones. Just sayin'

I keep having dreams about people that I haven't talked to in a long time are preggo.  Keep in mind, none of them have actually said anything about being pregnant.  (At least not according to their facebook pages.)
It has just been on my mind.
Now back to your regular programming.

5:14 am

You read that right.  
I am awake.  
I'm also working.  
You know how when you are checking on patients and when you see that they are sleeping, you get so completely jealous that they are sleeping.
And then when you see patients awake, all you think is "what the hell, go to sleep at night!"  
That's right.  
I said hell.
I want to go to bed. 
Right now. 
Two more hours.
I can make it.
I think I can. 
Most likely.

I thought I was being clever

And I hooked up my phone to Blogger so I could blog from my phone.  I even had a cute picture on my phone that I have been wanting to share for forever... but, either I did something wrong or it doesn't work...
Tomorrow I will post about how my fear of zombies started as a joke, but is quickly turning into a real fear.
Also, I got to ride it a sheriff's transport van today... I will ALWAYS be a law abiding citizen!

Sunday, May 22, 2011


So I follow about a million and one blogs in my google reader... and I love them all.  I especially love all the ones from the "cheezeburgernetwork"
They have a blog called "learn from my fail" and I had a fail that I just HAD to share... and I have been watching for a couple weeks...
Thats all.
It made me pretty happy :)

Internet programs

So I decided to update to Google Chrome.  I only decided on that program because every time I went to Google, there was an ad about it.  Internet Explorer had been shutting down all the time and driving me nuts.
Thats really all that is going on... you know... because what I choose for internet is really important.
I saw this graphic a while ago and thought it was funny...

job fails - Guess I'm A Hipster Then!

So thats about it...  I'm a "hipster" or just influenced by advertising.
Thats probably it.

Grandpa Gerald

Today my Grandpa Gerald went to meet Jesus. 
I know that he heard Him say "well done, good and faithful servant."
My aunt said that right at the end my grandpa looked up and his eyes got big and he got a smile on his face and wouldn't respond to anyone around him.
That is what is getting me through this tough time.
Grandpa Gerald was the peacekeeper.  He was Grandma's rock.
He would get a twinkle in his eye when he was being mischevious.
He had a rock in the front yard that he loved.  When any of us kids would fall off or hit the rock he would come running over, and make sure we didn't "hurt" his rock.
Grandpa would joke with me about remembering my name.  One day, when he was playing with me saying "oh, whats your name again?"  I decided to be a smark-aleck (whats new) and said "Abraham Lincoln."
That name stuck.  Even when Alzheimer's took over his brain, and he didn't know my actual name, he would call me "old abe."
One time I went on a three week road trip to Washington State with Grandpa and Grandma.  So. Much. Fun.  He liked to push grandma's buttons and get her all flustered.  I would joke with him when they were bickering that if they didn't stop I would put them in separate corners of the van.  He thought it was hilarious.  He also got "mad" at me when I would sneak some caramel popcorn out of his bucket on that trip.
Mom said the last couple days his eyes would light up when Grandma walked into the room.  He loved her so much even to the very end.   I think he loved more than anything to get her all riled up and be the only one that could really calm her down.

I am very happy that he is singing at the feet of Jesus now. 
But he was my Grandpa Gerald and I will miss him dearly.

Things I should get paid for telling people about PART 1

I have a Kindle
I have had one for over a year now, and love love love love love love it.  Also, I love it.  I can have my pick of books any time I choose, all with the click of a button.  All I have to do is remember to charge it. 
Did I mention I love it?
I have something like 140 or so books on it... Mind you I haven't read them all... But I love knowing that I have those choices. 
I almost always have it with me... because it is super flat and has a spiffy pink leather case that keeps it pretty.  I also splurged and got a light thingy with it... which was totally worth it, btw.
I have had it numerous places and people are like "oh I have heard about those, what do you think of them?"  So I tell them that I do love having it.
They are always like "I would miss having a book in my hand."  I always agree with them because I am a die hard reader and love having a book.  But this makes having any book I want so conveinient that I don't even care.
Places for sure I have done my best to sell people on a Kindle:
-Work... when you work nights, you gotta have something to read.
-Work... this was a completely other type of work... just sitting outside a pt room that was sleeping, so visitors walked by me
-Planes... lots and lots of plane rides have I told people the wonders of the Kindle.
-My moms graduation from nursing school... I was super bored during the ceremony and my mom wasn't up there so I was reading... my grandma leaned over and wanted to know all about it.
-A winery... On sunday nights in the summer the local winery has music on the lawn and you go and take a picnic and buy wine and have a great time... On this occasion my same grandma asked the same questions and I told her the same answers, and how amazon has like every book, this lady came over and said she just got the Kobo from Borders and it had more books.  I just smiled at her and said that was good to know all the while thinking, "uh I think I know what I am talking about."
There have been other times... I just don't remember them right now. 
I have read many many reveiws about e-readers and Kindle is always in the top 3. 
I love my Kindle.

So that was the first time I have ever used the camera on my computer to take a picture for the 'ole blog... Kinda fun I have to say... and super conveinient.  Just like my Kindle!

I was not in any way endorsed for this post... but I really should be for all the promoting that I have done for amazon.  Did you hear that amazon?

I forgot about this game... apparently I need to grow plants that can fight off the zombies too... wonder how thats gonna work... 

Monday, April 25, 2011


I have to admit.
Of all the end of the world problems and monsters that are out there...
Zombies scare the pants off me.
I think its because, in my mind, there is the possibility that it could happen.
I am Legend.  Did you watch that?  It has a virus that turns people into a zombie/vampire thing.  Vampires don't scare me.  Its the zombie part that has no rational thought other than to eat your brain.
My brother and I went to see I am Legend late one night... I made him sleep over because I was freaked out about the creatures... I just wanted him to sleep on the couch... He ended up sleeping on the floor in my room... I think he was a bit freaked too.
Zombieland.  Hilarious movie... but still freaked me out.
Carriers.  Hard to watch...  A virus killing off everyone.  Granted I don't remember if the infected were killing people... but it had a zombie-esqe feel to it.
The Crazies.  Pretty good... Set in the "marshes" of Ogden, Iowa... If you've ever been to ogden you know there aren't any marshes... Other than that little tidbit there is a virus leaked (by the government)  into the water supply and it makes people kill each other. 
28 Days Later.  A research facility lets loose a virus.  Couldn't finish this movie... although I really want to, I will just have to watch it with someone who won't try to scare me halfway through.
There are also the fantasy/mythical creatures genre of books these days too.
Don't get me wrong... I love the books about vampires... I read super fast so you could say I "eat them up."
I like the kind of books that put a myth into real life and make it seem like it has been there all along.
Case in point: Amanda Hocking.  She wrote a fun trilogy about how trolls are actually real and and very magical and not creepy like the Billy Goats Gruff.  The species is called Trylle and are in every was superiour to humans. 
So I saw on Amazon that she had a new book out.  I downloaded it to my Kindle not really paying attention to what it was about. 
You guessed it.
I haven't gotten past the 2nd chapter because it was stressing me out.
Aliens don't pose a problem.  While some alien movies do freak me out, I'm not worried about them taking over the world. (Although now that I think about it they are more likely than zombies.)  But, I highlky doubt that aliens would want anything to do with me... Zombies want to eat my brain for goodness sake!
My whole point of this post was to post just one picture... but the more I thought about it the more I thought I should explain the reasoning behind my fear.
That being said... I want this house.
epic win photos - Zombie Fortress WIN

It will keep me safe from the zombie apocalypse that I am convinced is coming.  Plus it looks like it is pretty cute on the inside.

So my dad has been making wine lately.  At first I didn't like it.  But the longer it sits, the better it tastes. (thats what she said) Also the stronger it gets.  (Also what she said.)  (Can you tell that I have been marathon watching The Office?) 
Did I mention that I have only have 2 glasses of apple wine? 

four twenty - an education

Yeeaahh... so I thought everyone knew what 420 implied.  If you don't... look it up
Anyway.  I was snickering about it whilst signing and dating stuff at work today. 
The nurse I was talking to didn't have any idea what I was talking about. 
I mean we work on a behavioral health unit... we see drug everything... so you can see how I was suprised that she didn't know anything about it.
Keep in mind I am not saying that drugs are good in anyway.  Or that I have EVER done drugs, simply because I fear getting caught.  Also I have seen firsthand what drugs can do to people... and that freaks me out.
But I do find drugs hilarious.  As well as Family Guy.  Hence the above picture.
For the record it is 4:49 in the ayem and my brain *may* not be working correctly.
So like the title of my post "four twenty - an education" this is what I think about in the middle of the night while trying to stay awake.  I might have to watch Family Guy now.

I have this weird thing about being even on both sides of my body.
I have three peircings and a tattoo on my left side... and only two peircings and no tattoos on my right.  Until recently, I suppose... I got my nose peirced about 4 weeks ago.
So that leads me to the tattoo... I have been ITCHING to get another tattoo for about 6 months now.  But I am afraid to get something that I will regret.  I have a design in mind... and a place to put it... now I just need the guts... no not guts... something to get it.  Does that make sense?
That is the balance I need... because I am unable to find balance anywhere else in my life right now.
Lovely, isn't it?

Bradley Cooper... I tell ya...

I went and saw this with my friend last night.  We also went to Panchero's beforehand for supper.  It was delish.  I haven't gone there in forever... simply because I had a bout of food poisoning from a mexican restaurant and a burrito place... two separate occasions.  Anywho.  Considering that Panchero's had both of those you can see how I was, ah, tenative, about going to such an eating establishment.
My worries were all for naught.  I had  a burrito bowl... It was super good.  It had all of my faves that are in a burrito, but it was like eating a salad.  Yummo.

Back to Limitless.  I. Loved. It.  Ok. I must admit I have had a not so secret crush on Bradley Cooper for a while.  But I was fully prepared to put that aside and focus on  the movie as a whole and ignore whatever preconceived notions I may have had... Like how much I loved him in every other movie I have seen him in... even  Wedding Crashers. 

I rate movies on whether or not I would be able to watch it again.. because if I feel as though I would watch it again, I usually buy it... does that make sense?  If it is good enough to watch again than it is worth my time. 

I should mention that I have been drinking some Chardonnay since about, oh, 7 pm tonight.  It is now 947.  My thoughts might not be fully making it out onto the computer. 

That being said I think I should finish up pretty quickly...

I loved limitless.  We also went to a bar on mainstreet that I think I will be visiting again sometime soon.

Until next time.

Currently listening to...

The Band Perry.  Download their album right now.  Seriously.
I would put of a pic of it but I was having some trouble with finding one...
So how about a music video of my favorite song?

So yes.
That is the music I am currently obsessed with.
I have been craving a gin and tonic for like a week now.  I have no idea why.  Nevermind... I do know... I was reading a book series, and the heroine liked them... and I haven't had one for a long time... there you go.
My friend and I are going out tonight.  So excited!
A movie and drinks afterwards.  You can be assured that gin will be involved.
Maybe dinner before.  She has little kiddos so it depends on when she can get away.

I have a bunch of ideas floating in my head in regards to blog subjects.  They are just waiting to get out... maybe next week... maybe tomorrow.
Who knows.

I am considering filling up a water bottle with chardonnay to take to the movie. 
Is that weird?
My friend will drink it to.

I am feeling a tad snarky right now.

Is it translating into what I am writing?


Till next time.

Dear Iowa.
I moved away from you.  But now I am back.  I know.  I know.  I KNOW!!!
God told me I had to come back.  So I decided to obey.  And now I am going to school... even though I am a little behind in my studies.  I work at Mary Greeley again, except back on nights.  I am actually loving it.  I went on vacation last week to South Dakota... but it didn't hold a candle to you Iowa. 
Right now my life is in limbo.  I don't know where I am going right now.  But I know I am going in the right direction.  I think.  I am trusting that I am.
Anyway.  I thought you might like to know what is going on with me.
