My son turns five next week so we are having a costume party this weekend to celebrate his birthday. I took it in the ass at Target (as always) tonight buying decorations and Halloween-related shit. Who am I kidding though ~ this is fun as hell!
I plan to tuck my kids in for bed, watch Grey's Anatomy and make the goodie bags while curled up in bed with my dog.
I was checking up on my bloglines when I came across these fun gems. Enjoy!
1. Jack Bauer. January 13, 2008. 'Nuff said.
2. If you know Dane, you know this is not only cute but funny.
3. This reminds me of my neighbor. 'Cept she's a crazy bitch instead of happy when she takes her pills. Who am I kidding. She's a crazy bitch regardless (and I say this with ZERO sarcasm...she really is insane and we cannot wait until she moves). I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt...even the ones I don't like. However, this broad has crossed the line and is beyond normal. I guess every neighborhood needs one. She's the crazy cat lady only with dogs.
4. Look at what Roxann did! She's the sweetest thing, I swear. Roxann...I'll do my part once life settles down and I can think in full sentences again.
5. I want one of these adorable "Little Travelers". I haven't adopted one yet but I will...and probably more than one because they a) will make cute gifts and b) are for a great cause! Go check them out.
Seven days in to my new job and I already have had to fill out an injury report.
Yes, I hurt myself at work today.
How does a Scheduler at an Oncology clinic get injured on the job you ask?
She is eating lunch in the breakroom, which is catered by a local Italian place on behalf of the drug reps. It's full of employees (maybe 20 people at the time).
She gets up to leave, has the newspaper and iPhone in one hand, her empty plastic plate in the other, when she steps on a piece of tortellini.
Her feet go out from under her and she drops faster than a whore at a sausage fest.
On the tile floor.
In front of a full breakroom. Did I mention it was full of people?
Since her hands are full, she catches her fall on her knees and elbows. She lands so hard and so fast, that her headband flips OFF her head and lands on her face, making her look like someone from Star Trek.
When she finally stands up after the shock and awe, she regains composure thinking "I can handle this", only to be told "Um, you have something on your nose".
It was a piece of a chopped pecan. There were pecans in the tortelli and apparently one flew off her plate and on to her nostril, thus making it look like a brown booger hanging off of her nose.
She has bruised elbows and knees, strained muscles in her upper back/right shoulder/right side of the neck, a completely shredded ego and rogue brusing showing up now, 11 hours later.
She had to fill out an injury report due to possible Workman's Comp issues on her seventh day of work.
Yes, she IS a rockstar.
The only thing that could have made this worse is that she could have shit her pants from the sheer shock of it all.
The weekend is upon us. Thank GOD. I plan to fuck around with scrapbooking, cards, and maybe even some crochet tonight. It's been a long week! A couple of tidbits:
~ I started my new job on Monday. It's a great job with NORMAL hours, NO holidays, NO weekends and everyone is out the door by 4:31pm. WHOA.
~ It's also an emotional job as I work at an Oncology clinic. The patients started inspiring me from the moment I came in contact with them. Wow.
~ Working at this clinic has brought me back in to the field of healthcare and my goal of returning to school for Nursing (or something in medicine). I am SO HAPPY here.
~ I was exhausted last night but managed to watch Transformers with Mister Hunzer. Annex...you are right. *wink* That movie kicked some serious ass.
~ I slept for 14 hours today (THANK YOU MISTER HUNZER) so now it's time to actually get some shit done. I feel yucky today which is why I slept longer than usual. I still feel yucky so I'm going to see if some chicken dumpling soup helps out my tummy.
Maybe you expert stampers out there can help a sistah out? I need heat embossing tips.
~ What is the best ink to use for heat embossing? ~ What is the best embossing powder? ~ What the hell am I doing to suck so bad at this?
My embossed images never look good. NEVER.
Here's an example:
It's horrifying, I know. But isn't the stamp CUTE?? It's a Bella stamp. I love the sassy look of all the Bellas.
Anyways, I wanted to emboss her jeans so I used my Zig Embossing pen and some silver shimmery embossing powder.
It didn't work.
Sigh. Seriously. Tell me what works for you!
Now, I do enjoy making cards for specific people and specific reasons. They are usually naughty cards. I made this one for a friend of mine who was homesick after a move over 1000 miles away. Love ya bitch!
So I'm loving my iPhone except for one minor detail:
The ringer doesn't ring! I have the volume turned up, I have selected different ringtomes (even made my own), I've messed around with the settings and nada. Every single call that comes in is missed unless I happen to be glancing at my phone at that exact moment.
It makes for a lot of missed calls and voicemails. It's also irritating.
Tonight, I finally did a google search on this and figured it out!!
There is this MAGICAL little button on the top left side of my iPhone. It's the silent button. It was on.
I'm loving this project. I love that it takes ten minutes to make a card. I love that I am only using my scraps. I love that I always have an idea for each day. I love that I can exert my creativity...even if it is only for ten minutes each day!
~ Went to the local shitcan bars with my brotha-from-the-same-motha on Friday night. He was pretty tanked by 12am. Since I was DD, I was being a good girl and cut myself off after the 4th jag bomb. It worked like a charm. Brother-J had a couple of girls eyein' him at the bar before we left. He really wasn't in "conversation" mode (or even in "stand up straight without swaying side-to-side" mode either) at this point of the evening. I happened to be talking to these girls and guess who got their numbers? .... ME .... I am an AWESOME wingman baby!
~ Saturday was me sleeping in a little bit, then we took the kids to my parent's house for a night with Grandma and Grandpa. Mister Hunzer and I went to dinner at our FAVORITE restaurant, Saji-Ya.
GOD some calamari tempura sounds devine right about now.
This is such a FUN project to do. Every card is so QUICK and EASY...and FUN!!
Now to totally change directions:
I'm going to the gym now every single day until the day I leave for Mexico ~ Nov 10th. My plan is to do at least 45 minutes of cardio every day and then the weighlifting classes that I can fit into my schedule after that. :)
