hi all, i made it back from Breckenridge. Had a great weekend... we got some new snow while we were out there and man, i LOVE the powder. it makes it really fun on a snowboard and it's soooo quiet, it's really cool. It was windy thursday afternoon and saturday, but oh well... :)

We all ate at Eric's Downstairs, the pizza place. That is some tasty, cheesy pizza. Yum.

Not much else to report, hope all of you had a lovely weekend!

Went dancing wednesday... The Rumble Jetts played early and then The Holmes Brothers started playing. Pretty cool, but not really my kinda music, so we didn't stay too late.

Jt is off to Colorado for a weekend of skiing and snowboarding. I'm headed there next week. goood times!

We're going to the monster truck jam this weekend. Should be gobs of wt fun. :)

I'm going to be making greeting cards with some of my illustrations on them. I just need to get busy on them. I've been a social bee lately, time to get to work!

This is where I'd like to be right now. I've got a case of the winter blahs.... Well, when I win the lottery, I'll go. :)

I do love the winter, but I think I'm ready for spring. I want to get outside and do stuff without freezing my heiney off. I'm thinking about joining a gym though, so that would help my blahs and my cold bloodedness. We shall see.....

Here's my friend Big L. in Canada, freezing his heiney off. At least he said it's him, but who knows!?

Happy Tuesday all... Man, I slept like a rock last night and I'm having a hard time waking up. **Yawn**

I watched the first episodes of Sopranos Season Five last night with Jt and Jp.. I'm kinda losing interest in it. The characters never grow or redeem themselves, they are all so self serving and violent. Yeesh.

I'm getting They Call Me Trinity from Netflix. C has been jonesing to watch it again and I've never seen it. :) We watched Judge Dredd the other night. Decent flick, their costumes were hilarious!

I'm hoping to get a bunch of paintings, greeting cards ready to sell at this local store. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I gotta get motivated!

Shameful Behavior

Monday, January 16, 2006

I was shocked and appalled to read about these teenagers who beat 3 homeless people with a baseball bat, killing one of them. How on earth do these people who hurt/kill other people live with themselves?? It's always bad, but I think it's especially bad when it is someone who is helpless; the old, the young, etc. And what gets me is when they seem completely calm about it, that's really sick.

Sorry for the soapbox, it just really got to me. On a brighter note, I got out biking this weekend! We had some really nice weather for January. And I went to the sock hop on Friday. That was a hoot. :) We've met a really nice crew of people. And it was a lovely surprise to see my friend P there. good times were had by all. There was rollerskating, dancing etc. And I do believe that Ben lives in a friend of mine's old loft. Definitely in the same building, perhaps in the same loft. TOO WEIRD!

Hope you all are having a good Monday!

Friday the 13th...

I'm really diggin frogs lately. I tried to draw something else, but i just wasn't feeling it. haha! It seems to be spring where these frogs are...

Went dancing last night, it was fun, as usual. My dancing partner is a hoot. :) Too much fun.

Then we watched part of Easy Rider. I've never seen it before, but my dad had the record and my brother and I used to listen to it and dance around the living room. Haha!

Yes, well.... other than that not much to say other than Thank God Tomorrow Is Friday!!

I'll be chillin' like a villain this weekend, after C and I go to Benny's Sock Hop tomorrow night. Oughta be a good time. :) And we are going to Dick's first to exchange my Christmas present..... cuz it was mislabeled as a shirt, but it was pants.

My dear friend Big L. is in Canada working and freezing his buns off for a couple months. KK and I are going to have to go get dosas without him. *sigh* But we'll go again when Boss (that's what the waiter calls him at the Indian Cafe-haha!) gets back.

Kind of a random drawing... I don't know why everyone is a frog except for Ben the dance instructor, but whatever.

My weekend was kinda weird. Had inventory Friday after work and that made for a long day. Hung out with Hubs, just chattin' and goofin' and helped him bring up some firewood. Sat. went back to inventory. Blech.

Ah well, it's done now!!

Saturday night Hubs and I ate at a Cajun place. YUM. Great shrimp fettucine. :)

Sunday was ALL MINE! I went mt. biking with Jt and crew. Good times. I was dying though, I've gotten shamefully outta shape when 9 easy mt. bike miles kick my heiney. Time to get back to exercising. *Sigh* :)

March of the Penguins

Have any of you seen this?? It's a good flick... I don't know that I could watch it over and over again, but it's interesting. Who had any idea those little guys walk/slide so far!! Love the baby penguins, especially the fat one that's getting pretty big, but still trying to sit under his mom. ha!

Went to the dentist this a.m. for a crown. That was a treat. I don't enjoy drilling in my mouth. *sigh* Ah well, such is life, eh?

C and I went dancing last night. Good times as usual. The RumbleJetts are a fun band. :) And Ben is having a Sock Hop, niiiiiiiiiiiiiice. Complete with a Hot Dog stand and Popcorn machine. He's funny...

Camels are funny lookin...

Mine were great. I missed C while he was gone, but I got quite a bit done really... I did some new paintings, which I'll post eventually, and I saw some movies. Got my apartment more settled...

I saw Memoirs of a Geisha Friday. I really liked it. I feel like I should read the book again to refresh my memory, but that probably won't happen any time soon. :) I want to get some paintings done and see if I can sell them through some local stores...

I can't remember if I blogged this, but my little brother and his girlfriend are having a baby. Yay! I'll be an aunt again!! She's nervous too because she's a fraternal twin so she has a decent chance of having twins herself. I can't even imagine that!!!

Got to see my nephew, E, over Christmas. He's a honey. :) He had an ear infection, but he was still fairly chipper, poor little guy.

I've started a list of things to do and places to go on a website... now i have to do some of them so i can check them off! :)
