Really? Really.

Normally I would leave any and all fashion topics up to Bombshell Maigen because she does a much better job at it than I ever could, but I just had to share my thoughts about The Sash. Who knows, she may have already blogged about it and it will look like I'm trying to be like her. Well, I am. Every girl can use a little bit more fashion knowledge in their life...especially if they think The Sash (cleverly designed by American Apparel) is something they should purchase and wear. Ok, here are my thoughts:
First: You can take The Sash and use it as a giant bowtie!

Second: You can take The Sash and use it as a flower waist belt!

Third: You can pretend like you are a snake charmer or a fortunate cancer patient with hair and wear it as a turban!

Fourth: You can use it to tie onto your purse so you have the appearance of being messy!

Fifth: You can put it on your hat so that everyone sees it, but you will have some tough competition at the Kentucky Derby I'm afraid.

Sixth: You can wear it as a skinny belt to accentuate your all too skinny and all too tight pants.

Seventh: You can look as ridiculous as this poor girl right here:

I think I will put The Sash in the same category as American Apparel's The Sack and also The Snuggie.

This Makes Me Happy...

Did you know that the sequel to Night at the Museum beat the Terminator Salvation movie this weekend? This really makes me happy. Now don't get me wrong...I love the Terminator movies (don't judge), but I really like it when kids movies beat out the blow up movies. This means that more families are spending time together than apart.

And that is all I have to say. The end.

I'm Losing It....

I used to joke around with my old roomie Emily when she would say she was going to Wal-Mart and would ask me if I needed her to get me anything. I would say, "Yes, please get me a brain...i've lost mine."

So, Em...if you happen to go to Wal-Mart, could you see if they have any in stock? Seriously. This is me:

I think, "Oh, I need to send so and so an e-mail." So I walk the ten steps to my desk and sit down and then think, "Why did I come over here?"


The other day there were some kids in the library working on a project. I was sitting at the circ desk and apparently staring off into space when a kid asked me,
"Miss this what you do all day?"
"What? Stare off into space?"
"No, I do actually work sometimes."


Yesterday I went to the post office. I sold another of my textbooks and needed to mail it. I usually print off the paper with all the details and stick it in the book so the buyer has a receipt of some sort. Well, I get the postage all done up and I'm talking to myself the entire time (never a good sign, but thank goodness I was alone). I was concentrating so hard on focusing on what I was doing that I stuck the receipt with the address in the book and put it in the envelope and sealed it up. Then I realized that I didn't write the address down. It was sealed inside a blank envelope. I had to call my BFF and ask her to look it up for me.


A million other situations just like those....

Oh! Okay, here's a funny story that has nothing to do with anything in the world. So I went to Target last night and was sitting in the car trying to write down a list so I could be focused inside Target. As I'm sitting there, this car pulls up and parks next to me. The guy gets out and goes around to each of his four doors and pulls on the handle like 5 times each to make sure each and every door is firmly closed and locked. And then he did my favorite OCD thing. He pulled on the last door handle several times in a row, paused for a second and then pulled on it again. And it reminded me of this teacher I used to work with that did the same thing. She would lock her classroom door, pull on the handle, unlock it, open it, close it, lock it again, pull on the handle, walk away, come back and double check the handle again.

Well, at least I'm not that crazy right?

So...Maybe I Should Get A Dog...

I'm just thinking about it. Really...just thinking. See, I went over to my parent's house earlier this week and they have taken in this really adorable dog that just kind of wandered up to their front door a few months ago. His name is Chester and here is what he looks like:

Of course he's a little fatter now. This was taken about a month or so ago and it breaks my heart but you can see his ribs in this pic. Anyways, so that's the first reason...I've fallen in love with my parents dog.

The second reason is that I was doing dishes this morning and I looked out the window and noticed that the back gate was open...hmmm... I don't ever leave the gate I went out there to close it and as I was coming back towards the house, I noticed that one of the side gates was open. I was kind of weirded out by this. Cause Millie was meowing like crazy and would stop the other night. It could be that I just left the gates open after mowing the yard the other day but it could also mean that someone cut through my yard and decided it would be extra creepy to leave the gates open so that I would know they did it.

Are you totally creeped out now? Yeah...I guess if I had a million dollars I would move my house, yard and all, to a really nice neighborhood that you have to have a secret code to get into. I wouldn't do that. Then I would have to deal with an HOA...I'd much rather have people cutting through my yard than an HOA.

Okay so maybe I should just get a dog. What do you think Millie would think about that?

Seriously? That's how you're gonna leave Lost for this season? I am SO GLAD this show has only one more season! I friggin' heart it but it totally stresses me out. And I don't know if I can handle another Lost season finale. Earlier this evening I could barely stand up straight cause I was so I'm wide awake.

J.J. let's just talk okay? Let's just get things out in the open.

First: That's how you're going to bring back Rose and Bernard and even the dumb dog Vincent? What, did people start writing in griping how you just completely dropped them from the show and let us "assume" they were killed in the flaming arrow attack so you had to appease them with the whole, "This is how we want to retire." bit? That was SO not part of the story and obviously thrown in there at the last minute.

Second: Kate is a plague on every man she comes in contact with. And Juliet is the martyr. This is how it goes:
Kate: I love you. No I don't. I've always been on your side. Ummm...we're not ACTUALLY together. So you're saying you want to make it so we never met? Why?
Juliet: You'll always love Kate more than me so now I will go kill myself to save you.

Third: I knew it was preposterous that Locke would come back to life! I knew it! And I also picked up on the fact that Locke had turned from bumbling sad and pathetic man to Mr. I'm so confident I'm going to march right up to Jacob and kill him. I knew it! Good move J.J.

Fourth: I kinda wanna go back and watch Jack and Sawyer duke it out that wrong? :)

Fifth: The cabin on fire. Did anyone else catch the fact that even though they just threw a few (like 3) bottles of fire in the old moldy musty cabin in the middle of a rainforest type jungle that it went up like a huge ball of fire? I mean, even if you doused the entire cabin with gasoline, it wouldn't burn like that. It was kinda ridiculous.

Sixth: Maybe Miles was right about doing nothing....

Seventh: Of all the ways for Sayid to go, you pick "He got shot by a Dharma guy that missed every other target he aimed for." C'mon! It's Sayid! He's a friggin' assassin for crying out loud! Shot...blah! Well...okay it wasn't just a random was Ben's dad. But still Ben's dad is a drunkard. So...he got shot by a drunkard...blah!

Eighth: Jack didn't cry. :( I like to see Jack makes me giggle.

Ninth: Too many dramatic pauses.

Tenth: I can't wait till 2010. Why do I have to wait till 2010? Can you just give me a little sneak peak? Please? I'll be your best friend! *sigh* Fine!

This is gross...

I don't know why, but the thought of this really grosses me out....

Things I Really Really Really Can't Stand

1. Forward chain letters/e-mails. "If you don't send this out to 5,000 of your closest friends immediately, you will be hit by a bus tomorrow!" I just want to say thank you to the person who sent it to me because they obviously are wishing that I get hit by a you too!

2. Being ignored. I don't ask for attention all the time. Usually I'm pretty quiet. But there are certain people that I just want to scream at, "Hello!! I'm right here!"

3. Going to Wal-Mart on the weekends. It never fails that the ginormous lady who can't stand on her own without the support of the cart is always standing in front of something I need. And when I say "Excuse me", she looks at me like I just asked her to move the entire store by blinking.

4. Staring. Didn't your mother ever tell you it was rude to stare? Mrs. N. has taken over my library with flower arrangements for this special A-Honor Roll breakfast we are having this week. That's fine. I have no problem with that since I am testing (the best never rest right?) this week. But when I walk into the library, why do you have to just stare at me like I don't have permission to be in there? Don't stare at me...I don't like it.

5. When teachers bring their class in the library and then get on to them because they are taking too much time. My favorite is when they say things like, "Hurry up! We've got more important things to do!". much.

6. The gripey one: You know, that one person you work with that just HAS to gripe about everything. You duck or hide or suddently get real busy when you see her coming. She says to me today, "Who paid for all these flower arrangements?! It better not be from the &%@# school budget cause I'm out of paper and they won't get me anymore!"

*sigh*..........I'm just cranky today cause I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. Booo!!!!

...I collect things with bridges on them. Did you know that? I didn't either. My brother told me a few weeks ago that if you have more than four of something, that means you collect it and apparently I have more than four pictures of bridges. Then I started thinking of other things I am a collector of and here's what I came up with:

candy wrappers
half empty water bottles
books I have started to read but haven't finished
phone chargers to phones I don't have anymore
pictures in frames I have been meaning to put up somewhere but haven't found the spot
pictures I have been meaning to put in frames but haven't found the right frames
spare pillows
college textbooks that "I might use someday"
church bags
dead bugs in the light fixtures (still haven't cleaned those out...)

And that's all I can think of for now...
