So happy so sad

Happy because I ordered my Wienerdog Millionaire shirt.

Sad because the lineup for ACL came out today and there are so many awesome bands I want to see but I will not be attending. Beastie Boys! Kings of Leon!! Lily Allen! Girl Talk! Citizen Cope!!! Toadies! It is to weep that I won't be there.


Something I miss about Austin

The Buda Wiener dog races! The theme this year cracks me up. I wonder if I can get a t-shirt of that? Check out this dogumentary (get it?!) about the crazy world of wiener dog racing.

For Mom & Dad

but it sure did make me laugh (or should I say LOL?).


What I did last night

I spent the night in the company of two hot men.

It was teh awesome. But movies like that make me want to drive fast, swear loudly and listen to ghetto rap/regattone. Only, I'm a fat, white, 35 yr old woman driving a fuel efficient car in a town with crappy radio stations (and my ipod, which is filled with just exactly the kind of music I needed, was at home). So I only drove recklessly home until the first exit. And really, it wasn't my fault. People here do not drive friendly. Let me change lanes people!


The one in which Lulu misses her yard

So it's a beautiful day outside. Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 75 degrees. On this type of day, in Austin, you could usually find Lulu sunning herself in the back yard. Now that we're apartment dwellers that is not so easy. We just went on a walk and at first I thought she was sick again because she kept getting slower and slower. Next thing I know she's lounging in the grass! It took us forever to get back inside.

I am going to set up my camping chair outside and take Lulu out there and see if that will work for her. I really want to take a nap, and it can be done in that chair, but the sacrifices I make for my baby....

yes, I did just call Lulu my baby



Does anyone know a good way to get the scent of dog vomit out of my car? Because it's been rainy here for the last two days so I can't roll the car windows down and tonight when I got in the car to go home from work I nearly threw up myself. *gak* I drove straight to the grocery store with all 4 windows down in search of something to absorb the scent. As far as I can tell, everything has been cleaned up. I mean my mother was out there with q-tips, for goodness sakes! So now it's just lingering. On and on and on. Maybe I'll just walk to work tomorrow.

Did you know...

that koalas can get STDs? I am not even kidding. Who knew! They sure don't teach you that in 8th grade health class.

White kids can dance?

I wonder where this kid learned his movies.

Happy Easter


I hope everyone had a good Easter. Mine was very nice. My parents came to visit and we had a good time. Lulu especially enjoyed seeing them and loved the bag of chocolate that was accidentally left where she could reach it.

In case you want to know....chocolate and activated charcoal scented dog vomit does not smell so good. I think I could be a mom because I totally tried to catch the puke in my hand as I was driving down the dark, winding, wet road on the way home from the emergency vet. Unfortunately, Lulu's aim was not so good. Thank goodness my car upholstery is dark and my commute to work tomorrow is short!



This is daily occurrence at my office.


As if I don't watch enough tv already...

I really want this Roku digital video player. It lets you watch videos from Netflix directly on your tv. That would be teh awesome since as much as I love my Zody chair, I do not dig sitting in front of my computer to watch movies. Apparently, if you have an X-box you can already do this so you don't have to go out and buy another device. But I don't have any video game thingys (but if the Wii fairy stopped by my house I would not be sad at all).


Flea Market Find

Flea Market Find

Today was a beautiful day. A bit windy, but the sun was shining and there was not a rain drop anywhere! So I made sure to get out and enjoy it. I went to the flea market that is held every weekend at the NC state fairgrounds. It was pretty awesome. Kind of like a mini-First Monday at Canton.

After that I wanted to go to the yarn store. The only way I know how to get there is from one highway. My sister did give me a GPS for Christmas but it doesn't do you much good if you can't remember the name of the road the shop is on OR the name of the shop. So I meandered around for about 50 miles, give or take, before I finally got to the highway. I didn't mind too much since it was such a pretty day. But really, I have got to figure out these roads! Although, I see a GPS in just about every car on the road so obviously I'm not the only one getting lost.

Lulu strikes again

I don't know what her problem was today, but Lulu went nuts while I was at work and got into the trash. She moved the trash can from one end of the kitchen to the other, pulled out all the trash (including several magazines and catalogs) and then spread it all over the apartment. She tried to do the same thing with my shredder, which you can barely see in the corner, but thankfully it was too heavy. She did tear up the edges of the exposed plastic bag though.

Was it because I tried to blow dry her this morning? It was pouring down rain and she got completely soaked. I didn't want her to be cold! Was she mad because I wouldn't share any sandwich meat when I was making my lunch? Or was she just plain bored?

Lulu strikes again


I hate it when this happens

So far, at my new office, I don't think anyone has actually worn the exact same shirt yet but there have been days where 2 or 3 of us are all dressed alike. Completely by accident, of course.
