Halloween Party

L to R: Brittany/Cat, Heidi/Fries, Ashley/Joan of Arc, Kyle/Ghostbuster, Kim/Lil' Bo Peep, Sara/Pocohontas-Tiger Lilly, Lyndee/Go-Go Dancer, Brenda/Doll

On Saturday I went to the funnest Halloween party ever! Everyone was dressed up, everyone looked great. Kim was little Bo Peep, all the boys were drooling! Brenda and Lyndee were babes as a Doll and Go-Go dancer respectively... And I've got to give a shout out for my friends who won FIRST PLACE in the costume competition as GHOSTBUSTERS! Way to go Rich, Kyle, Dr. Steve and Mary, and Libby as the sensational secretary with pink hair! LOVED IT! :)
(Hopefully I'll have some more pics from the party to add soon...)

Hair Shmare.

So, I was standing in the bathroom cuttung my hair (just a minor trim I assure you, nothing drastic) when I realize- ug, I really, ug (trying to focus on the back of my head) can't reach these hairs at the very back on the bottom. So. I say, "Dave! can you HELP me? I cannot reach." and he said-"uh. No. I don't know how to do that." and I said. "c'mon, of course you do. Haven't you ever watched the ladies at the hair cutting place?" AKA salon. He said "No." I said, "just cut it anyways I can't reach." "How am I supposed to know how much to cut?" So I SHOWED him the amount I was cutting from the rest of my head. He took the scissors and my brush and started mimmicking what I'd shown him to do "Pull the hair TAUT" I said. "Just a teeny TRIM" I said. An inch and a half later I realized that the big bear paws he was using to paw the hair and brush SHOULD have been a dead giveaway. Anyways. I now have little short curlies at the base of my neck that are about an inch and a half shorter than the rest of my hair.

And I STILL like him. That's love.

OMG! I want this SOOO bad


The best comic of the day...

Luke Skywalker...

There's something wrong with your dog.

What I like...

Thanks for the inspiration Elizabeth... I am definitely running low. I always feel that I cannot post on the blog without having at least one new picture. But here goes...

Things I don't like that everyone else likes:
Miniature Golfing, Dominoes... how are these things fun? Someone please tell me!

Things i do like that no one else likes:
Reading about dark matter in outer space. (not sure this qualifies as something other people don't like)...
I open it to the Blog floor- What are your likes/dislikes that others dislike/like??

Here is an old picture of two of my closest friends! Grant and Dr. Pepper! (You can see the Dr. Pepper in my right hand) I actually recently quit drinking soda altogether! I was going for a new, healthier, me, the only thing is, I sort of replaced soda with candy. :) At least I conquered the caffeine addiction! Still working on the sugar one...

well, hello...

yes,yes,yes, it HAS been a while. Indeed.

I have just started my second week of work- first week was boring-but today we started having stuff to do- so it wasn't as sleep enhancing as last week. Last week, Dave and I bought a mini deep fryer. Last night we had fries and onion rings for dinner- followed by homemade coconut ice cream. DAMN YOU CUISINART! We are getting fatter. We have actually decided to start a DIET. A healthy eating regime, if you will. And you will. Of course I am writing this little ditty whilst eating a warmed and buttered peice of homemade bread. We also purchased a bread maker with wedding gift return $. We're doomed to have high cholesterol! Not to mention clogged arteries and intestines! But I must say- I've never eaten better. And I am a very, very good cook. and so is my Husby. You can only dream about being my Mexican neighbors to the right or the Vietnamese neighbors to the left who get to smell the intoxicating aromas wafting out of our window- that is of course, when nasal passages are uninterupted by weird smoking man who is as of yet unvisible. Yes, unvisible. Now Bon Apetit!

Forgotten Charity

Every time I hear the band Forgotten Charity, I think of Stuck on the Edge and cry. But I LOVE them anyway, just as I love Sam and Audrey!! So Elizabeth, did Aud come back yet?? Did she and Sam reconcile and get together?? These are just a few of the questions that come to me as I listen to Forgotten Charity.

Cast members from Stuck on the Edge- Moroni, Shelby, Hank, Katie, with Forgotten Charity in the background.

Couch in a Box

I got a new couch! And, it came in a box. And when we opened the box, it was full of jig-saw pieces. That is my new roommate Ashley on the left.
Team Ashley putting together the couch! It came with one set of gloves, there were LOTS of splinters!
Hard at work!!
It's starting to look like something!! Not sure what...
Handy instructions are VERY helpful!
Frame complete! Sweeping up splinters, preparing for the cushions...
Arm rest cushions in place! and all those other pieces that cover up the wood frame...
Mission accomplished!! And it's really comfortable too! :)

I have a cute dog

Just wanted to show him off!
This is when he tore up the foam inside his bed with the help
of my in-laws golden retreiver in our backyard.
I still find random pieces of foam around the house!

He actually has 3 pieces in his mouth here!

OMGosh! It's October!

Welcome October! The month of beautiful fall colors and wonderful Halloween! I also share Shelby's Love of that holiday, and enjoy dressing up in a home made/DI costume. And what is Halloween without Hocus Pocus!! We've been watching this movie around Halloween for years. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend. :) The tradition all started with Shelby, Nick Rishe and me about 14 years ago! Time flies!
