I'm glad glad it's Friday!! :)

I went to Tanner's last night to "watch" the Bradley Braves game and see S & B. More to see them than to watch the game as I have sports ADD and the mad ability to appear to be watching the game and see very little of it. ha! Good times were had! B was tormenting his friend T cuz he'd lost a bet and had to wear a Bradley Braves t-shirt (he's a KU fan) all evening and submit to lots of gloating pics with B. Haha!

This weekend I have grand notions of major spring cleaning and crafting and chilling... we'll see what I actually get done. :)

So it's Thursday... Not much exciting to report here. Went to Knuck's last night. The RumbleJetts were good, like always and Lil' Rachel sang with them. She's got quite a voice. :)

I sent my ATC off to Turtle Kisses. She liked it. I scanned it to put up here, but accidentally deleted the scan. **sigH* next one though, i'll show off! I should be getting hers any day now, I'm excited to see it. :)

I signed up to do another one, the topic is bad girls. I gotta get busy. I'm going to branch out and do something other than frogs. *gasp* haha! I really do other things, I've just been a bit frog-obsessed lately.

I need to work on my conversational skills... I know I'm way guilty of number 3. I'm all to free with my advice. :)

Six Common Mistakes
That Spoil Conversations
By Loren Ekroth

1. Blabbermouthing

2. The "take-away" and "me-too" syndrome

3. Unsolicited advice

4. Interrupting

5. Contradicting

6. Stingy contributors


I need to finish my ATC for Turtle Kisses' trade and mail it off tomorrow. Don't worry, it'll be there soon!

And I need to finish doing my dishes. I made quite a dent in the mountain of dirty dishes last night, so tonight should be cake. :)

Has anyone seen the movie Failure to Launch yet? I hope it's funny... seems like quite a few romantic comedies of late have been duds.

I added to my to do list. I need to be less of a list maker and more of a do-er....

Happy Tuesday!

Worth the Ride 2

My horoscope seemed somewhat appropriate today:

The long-distance travel bug hasn't just landed in your vicinity, it's set up shop in your imagination, igniting an insatiable urge to get to that place you've always wanted to see.

Luckily I'll be going outta town soon to visit family, so hopefully that will satiate my travel bug for a while.

Well, it's not Sept. 19th (Official Talk Like a Pirate Day), but here's my pirate name. Haha!

My pirate name is:
Iron Bess Kidd
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!
Get your own pirate name from fidius.org.

And here you can find out your cyborg name: http://www.cyborgname.com/


Anyway, I went to Knucklehead's last night with C and his mom. Before the RumbleJett's this band, Jon Roniger played. They were alright, but since I was in the mood for rockabilly they didn't do a thing for me. Ah well, then RumbleJetts played and then Billy Bacon and the Forbidden Pigs. They were good!

I need to shake things up a bit.... I'm feeling bored with myself. I'm working on getting rid of a bunch of junk I have in my house cuz I want more of a clean look to the place. I love knickknacks, but I just don't want SO MANY of them. And I need to get out and bike and jog now that the weather is getting warmer.

Hi All,

Today's kind of a gloomy day here... That's okay by me cuz my apt. is a mess and this weather makes me feel okay with staying inside and being domesticated. :)

Nothing too exciting going on here. Went for a nice bike ride Sunday, the weather was beautiful. **sigh** I'm excited for spring. I want to get out and bike a bunch and get in great shape.... Never did end up taking a spin class over the winter like I planned... next winter?? :)

Happy Tuesday!
