This afternoon I walked to Target and did a little shopping... I bought a pair of shorts and a navy blue top. Not that I really can afford to spend money on things I can't wear right now but hey, I have no regrets.

I am very excited that America's Next Top Model is on again... and the best thing is it doesn't interfere with watching Lost.

Oh, how I love television!

Now that the paper is out of the way it's all downhill from here. I have to figure out MFA show stuff and start looking for a job and firm up my thighs.

Stick a fork in me...

I am done... hopefully my last research paper EVER!

Man, I need a drink.


people are being loud in the library...
I figure I should have this done in a few hours...
I'll let you know how it goes...
I have managed to squirrel away some movies to check out including Taladega Nights, War of the Worlds and Sophie Scholl the Final days... quite the selection.

Good news, bad news

Good news is that I'm up today! Bad news, the hallway in my apartment building smells like someone died in it.

Good news, I am almost done with the paper. Bad news, I have to do dishes today.

Good news, only 80 days until I graduate. Bad news, I have to figure out what I'm doing for the MFA show.

Maybe today I'll try to exercise a bit. I think I'm about due for a walking trip to Target.

Oh yeah, more good news... I finally got a Wednesday paper and the food ads come in it! the past few weeks I was either in New York or the paper was stolen...

maybe I'm just cranky but...

the people on the bus ride home were about the most annoying ever. I would go into it but it would probably just make me crankier.

I just have a few revisions to make on my paper and fix up the bibliography and then I'm good to go.

I decided today that I should just show my artwork in grocery stores, shopping malls and fast food restaurants because those are my favorite places and I think the people there would appreciate it.

This is a Google Earth image of a place I know.

When I walk around with earplugs in...

my body sort of makes this "cathunk cathunk" sound. Very strange...

I'm in the library again (this time at school... less interesting odors than the Public Library...).

Still working on the paper - I think it will be okay, but I could always do better.

Sarah F. is going to be teaching a jazz dance for a performance... I think I'm going to sign up for the lessons. You know how I love to dance!

The Final Countdown...

I ended up going to bed at 8:30 last night...boy was I in a foul mood. 24 hours and I should be done with the paper. I guess it's alright but I'm such an overachiever... I wish I didn't expect so much from myself.

I'm supposed to write about the symposium I went to on Saturday for class tonight. I wish I remembered more of it or there was something particular that I remember.... Maybe if there had been male strippers there I would have remembered it better and THAT would be something I could write about.

I guess since I have chosen to be an artist I should probably have to learn how to talk like an artist.... maybe that's what I'll write about... my resistance to becoming an "artist" and how the institution comodifies me... does that make sense?

Monday, February 26, 2007

I'd rather....

gouge my eyes out with a dull pencil and eat them than sit here and work on my paper.

senza title

So the critics agree with me on the Jennifer Hudson dress. Not that it was necessarily bad but it wasn't Oscar worthy.

I'm off to spend the entire day at the library and hopefully get my paper finished. Then I can let it sit for half a day and then do some editing..

I'm gassy... I guess I ate too much broccoli yesterday...

Oscar Schmoscar

Once again I am plastered in front of the television to watch the Oscars and make observations.

So far I give a big thumbs down to Jennifer Hudson's dress. It looks like crap.

Penelope Cruz is hot.... so is Eddie Murphy... now there's Cate Blanchett... I'm tired of all this chit chat - let's get to the show.

Another strange thing is that I watched the Barbara Walters special BEFORE the Oscars... (that's a new thing for's on after on the west coast!).

I'll report more later.

Paper time...

Right now I'm at Argo Tea working on my paper (okay... I'm actually blogging - but I AM working on the paper too!)... I got an email from someone responding to my yahoo personal page but in order to send a real email I have to subscribe to their program.

So much for finding true love (or true lust!).... maybe when I'm a rich and famous artist I will be able to afford to search for it.

New ways to eat broccoli...

In an never-ending quest to find different ways to get my veggie servings in I have discovered a new way of preparing broccoli. (tangent here - at the WW meeting I work on Thursdays they have fruit and veggie trays for their employees - nice! I usually take home leftovers such as broccoli and cauliflower....) This afternoon I took a bunch of leftover broccoli (am I using the word broccoli too much???) and steamed it in the microwave and then topped it with salsa and fat free sour cream (just a tad). It is pretty good for broccoli.


So I'm thinking that maybe I shouldn't post when I don't have anything exciting to say. But then I might not ever post again.

This morning I'm off to the symposium at school and then it's back home to work on the paper. I'm sure I'll get it done but I just wish it was finished. I knew this would happen, wait and wait and wait... then have a week to finish.

I'm sure there are probably people out there who procrastinate even longer than I do, I just don't feel comfortable doing it myself... but it always happens. I have problems planning ahead.

Friday, February 23, 2007

I can't concentrate...

I'm watching 1 vs. 100... and sort of working on my paper.... I'm thinking maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow afternoon when I'm not in my apartment... with the television and food.


Aye aye aye... it's early. I haven't been up this early in a while. Today I have to work at WW and then give a tour... then it's back to work on the paper. Oh the paper....

Tomorrow there is a symposium at school that I have to help with. It's called the New Institutionalism... it's about the future of exhibitions in art schools... (I think). Mary Jane Jacob is in charge of the whole thing.. I think I'd be more interested if I didn't have the paper to worry about...

Jet Blue is Watching Me!

I was taking a look at my stats to see who was looking at my blog and Jet Blue has been watching.


Maybe someone will see that and take action... if not the Direct TV they could pay one months rent... that would be cool.


I've had a bad case of itchy dry skin... I can't wait for spring and the warmer weather. Yesterday it got up into the 40's but I was inside for most of the day.

I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep. I slept until 8:15 this morning... I still feel dopey though.

I'm working today at WW and then it's off to the public library to work on my paper. I have less than a week. So far I have only a few pages written and they're not that good. I just have to get it done.

Okay, this morning's post is lame. Sorry, I'll see if I can come up with somethig better later.

Pictures from New York.

Good morning everyone! I am happy to report that I got a fairly good nights sleep. I was really dragging yesterday.

The first picture is of the Empire State building... I considered going up in it but the wait was too long. The second picture is of the appetizing food display that they had set up in JFK. The gate that I flew out of was an elongated trailer sort of thing. They had a makeshift bar whith this yummy looking plate of food out front. I like food, but not enough to want to eat this.

Tuesday, February 20, 2007

I survived.

Root canal good (well, not good really)... advising good, class (we had cookies!).

I think it's probably a good idea if I go to bed now. Blog at you later.

Oh yeah, I got an email from Jet Blue today - here's what it said.

Customer Commitment
JetBlue Airways

I have to say that although I was inconvenienced with the cancellation I am impressed with how Jet Blue is handling the situation (so far).

Reasons why...

I am so tired I'm not making any sense... I'm having a hard time focusing.. I have to get it together soon. I have to go finish having my root canal. On today's agenda after the root canal I have advising and then my class. I have to work on my paper at some point as well.

I also have to go pick up my package at the Post Office. Hopefully they haven't sent it away.

Last night my flight didn't get in until 10:00. I ended up taking the train and bus home because I figured I should save my money. The president of Jet Blue is going to be on the Today show this morning. It will be interesting to see what he has to say. I would fly them again just because of the DirectTv they have on their flights. I got to watch all my favorite Monday night shows last night. I love television.

Monday, February 19, 2007

I'm a star!

So I got on the Today Show and chatted with Al. My sister taped it for me back in Seattle. My sign got a little bit of attention...

After my encounter with Al I had to go into Dean and Deluca to warm up... man, five layers is sometimes not warm enough!

Unfortunately when I was in Dean and Deluca everyone came out (including Anne) and I missed my chance at meeting her.

Maybe if Jet Blue gives me a free ticket I will come back when it's warmer and try to meet her.

Well, I better get back to checking on how I'm going to get to the airport tonight. So far the flight is as scheduled.

I'm off to the Today Show!

Look for me!

Soho Fun!

As you can tell from the cleaver title to this post I spent the afternoon in Soho. While Maria went to the gym (I was a sloth) I walked around Soho. When she was done we walked around some more and then went to brunch and then did some shopping. I had to buy a hoodie because I was cold...

I am going to do my best to get to the Today show tomorrow morning... all this thanks to Jet Blue. Keep your eyes open for me!

I'm running out of clothes...

I only packed for four days... now that four has stretched into six I am running out of clothes... I think I'm okay on the underwear.. but I'm really tired of my shoe selection. I feel like a schlub.

On another note I checked out the Jet Blue website and there is only one flight scheduled today and then three tomorrow. I was watching the news and I guess they are trying to get crews their mandatory rest periods and reposition planes. That's why they canceled so many flights.

I'm just glad I got on one tomorrow. I'd hate to be someone who actually had to be somewhere important, not that my stuff is not important but it's not like I have to go to a funeral or a wedding.

Maybe tomorrow morning I'll try to get to the Today show for real! (That's me trying to put a positive spin on things...).

Right now I've switched on the Weekend today show... I may take a shower when it's over and try to get some coffee.

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Dear customer your flight is canceled.

here is a copy of the email that I got from Jet Blue

Dear Jennifer,

As a result of system disruptions impacting flights to/from the Northeast we are unable to complete your travel as scheduled. Your flight #917 on February 17, 2007 for travel from New York's JFK has been canceled. Please call us at 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) to discuss options for alternate travel. Your confirmation number is XXXXXXX.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.


JetBlue Airways

I sure hope they are going to give me a free flight or something... it's an inconvenience... not that I mind staying here a few more days... but what if I had to pay for a hotel room?

I have that paper I was planning on working on... all my research is in Chicago... arghh!!

Good things about being stuck in New York.

I did get to go to Chelsea this afternoon and look at work by Robert Gober and Doug Aitken to name a few. I then managed to get up to the Garth Clark Gallery and see the work of John Byrd... I'm glad I went... it's one of those things that would have regretted not going.

In addition to the galleries I went to Trump Tower and looked at the fountain. I'll post a picture later.

Canceled Flights...

So my bad luck with fights continues... my flight back to Chicago was canceled... I am currently on hold (going on 18 minutes...) to see what my options are. I don't mind not getting canceled... but I was looking forward to sleeping in my own bed. I am in New York though... not too bad - and I have a place to stay.

Can I just say that this muzak I'm listening to is driving me crazy...maybe it's because I had a lack of caffeine headache this morning (which is gone...) but the memory lingers.

I'll keep you all updated on what's happening.

Okay... I'm on a flight out Monday evening...grr....

Dylan's Candy Bar, Times Square, John Byrd

Today I heard John Byrd (a University of Washington MFA grad) talk about his work.. this is a picture of some of his work. The other photos are from Dylan's candy bar where I had some fancy named hot chocolate with malted milk balls - skim milk of course! The ferris wheel from Toy's R Us in Times Square and another random shot... I've got to go to bed...

pizza rueben nicole miller and maria

Okay, so the picure of Nate Smyth and myself is not very flattering... It was taken in the Nicole Miller showroom at the SAIC reception last night. It was cold, I had long underwear on... I look hippy.

The rueben I had for lunch was alright... the pizza was pretty good...

I've decided looking for a job at CAA is not in the cards for me. I'd rather have fun!
I'm going to the Guggenheim this afternoon.

word to your mother.

Thursday, February 15, 2007

Long day...

Today I've done a lot. The today show, MOMA, SAIC reception at the Nicole Miller showroom, going to an art opening in the East Village and then New York style pizza (it was pretty good!). I'll post pictures tomorrow or the next day. I have to get to bed now... nighty night.

Ann, Al, Natalie and Matt.

So I got to the Today show a little late and I didn't make it on camera... actually there were only a few people watching (it's stinking cold...). but I managed to get a few shots of Ann and the gang. the first shot is of the gang playing poker and the the other is of Matt Lauer eating some of the food leftover from the cooking segment on the Chinese New Year.

After standing around for about 45 minutes I was too cold to stay outside so I went to the NBC Experience store where I bought memorabilia from the Today show and The Office.

More later!

Okay so I accidentally posted this to my Horizontal blog but that's okay... I'm so happy I'll post it twice.

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

Today here I come!

On the way back to Maria's tonight I walked past the Today show studios. I'm going to go if it kills me... Hopefully tomorrow morning I'll be in the crowd. If not tomorrow it will have to be Friday. They were setting up for tomorrow morning. It was very exciting.

by the way... happy valentines day!

I love you all! And you know who you all are!

CAA here we come.. or here I am.

I am sitting here in the student lounge working on my images for prospective applications.... I think I'm a dud. okay not really. Most of the positions that they are interviewing for here are either in the midwest or east coast... I want to go west!

It's snowing (I guess that's what you call it)... I woke up too late to go to the today show this morning... maybe tomorrow!

Tonight I might go to a comedy club with Maria. I might get liquored up! No, probably not. I'll take photos some time soon. Okay, back to work.

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

I'm here!

Well, it only took a six and a half hour wait at O'hare and then a short flight but I'm here. I will expand later, but I accidentally left my cell phone and my nice leather coin purse in the taxi I took from Penn Station. The cabbie brought it back though and I gave him a $20.00 tip. I figure getting my phone and coinpurse back is well worth 20 bucks.

I'm tired so I will probably sign off now. More tomorrow.


My flight is delayed. Hopefully it's just routine and I'll get to New York... I knew my last flight was just too good to be true.. (getting a free seat next to me from Italy). Before that I had the diversion into Spokane on the way to Seattle and then flying on the day that they had that terror plot exposed in London.

I suppose I shouldn't linger here too long. Who knows how long it will take me to get to the airport.

Monday, February 12, 2007

I've got mail!

I got back today from picking up my winnings from Lush and running errands and when I opened my mailbox to find that I have a parcel. I don't know when I'll be able to pick it up... maybe it's a valentine from a secret admirer. In reality it's probably from my dad, last year he sent me a stuffed Kermit and Miss Piggy holding a heart... it was cute in a Junior High sort of way.

Who knows maybe it's a gift from Weight Watchers.

Jen in the City....

Okay so It's not quite as catchy as Sex in the City but what can I say. Tomorrow I head off to New York (if the impending storm doesn't sidetrack my plans) for the College Art Association conference. I'm going to check out the Career Fair and go to Museums and eat a New York bagel.

I should probably get together things... packing, resumes, images... I should also work on my paper today because I don't think I'll get a lot of work done while I'm in New York.

I will do my best to post from NYC but I can't promise anything.

Sunday, February 11, 2007

Another person I'm not too fond of....

I'm not too excited about Beyonce. There's just something about her that's not that appealing to me.

How about the Police opening the Grammy's??? Now I would jump on the Police, all of them!

The beginning of a new era.

This morning I am selecting the title of my post from the drop down list that pops up when I type in a word. This morning that word was "the".

Let's see, how today can be the beginning of a new era? Well, I could vow never to eat chocolate or drink beer again - now that would be the beginning of something... I could get off my ass and go to church... that might be the beginning of something... I will consider these options... maybe I'll clean up my apartment.

Saturday, February 10, 2007


So I went to Lush today and forked over some money to buy good smelling things. I entered one of those "guess how many candies are in the jar and you win" contest. Guess what?? there was 139 chocolates in that jar (I know my candy - what can I say???)! Oh, I also got some free Lush goodies - I'll just have to pick it up and find out what I've won.

In a perfect world I would give away the chocolates that I've won (but realistically we all know that that won't happen!)...I will sit there and eat them one by one until they are gone...

Here I am, another Saturday night on the futon in my robe.... maybe someday I'll live the high life and have something imortant to do on Saturday nights....

This may take a while....

Four and a half hours later and where am I? Still at the Library. I have made progress though... it just may take a while. All I need is a few more full days working on the paper and I'll be at a starting point.

I sometimes wish I wasn't an overachiever. If I could just settle for second rate that would be nice. But I can't.

Now I'm off to Lush to buy things for myself (which I can't really afford). They're having their Valentines party today and I'm going to get a goodie bag (free stuff!). I'll update you later on what I manage to score.


I'm a loser because I didn't go to my friend Dave's party last night but I'm a winner because I am currently at the public library right now attempting to work on my paper.

Yay for me... so I better stop blogging and start working!

Friday, February 09, 2007


I did some laundry today.. I could only do one load because I didn't have enough quarters. I counted and I have 30 pairs of underwear... I thought that was a lot but my friend (I won't name her here) claims to have 62 pairs. I was down to the last three pairs (one a bit small, one short-like pair and one that's just not comfy!) so I had to pick the whites to do.

If you keep track of my posts re: laundry I did a load when I got back from Italy but I did darks back then. with the assistance of long underwear (as a layering device) and pseudo-febreeze I have managed to avoid doing darks again. Once I get more quarters I'll do them.

On the weather front the ice on the inside of my windows is melting. It stayed in the teens today.. it's almost like a sauna.

am I a bad person??

I don't like Sarah Jessica Parker for some reason. I liked her when she was in Square Pegs but the whole Sex in the City gig has left me cold to her acting talent (she bugs the crap out of me.).

It's Official.

I have come to the realization that I am a cluttered person. I know some of you out there are thinking "okay, she's just now realizing this???" I've known it all along really - when I have to keep other peoples areas clean and tidy I can do it but when it comes to my own places I am less than diligent in my picking up.

I find it kind of strange too that I am a very organized person - things don't slip through the cracks... something to think about. Maybe I could get into a scientific study somewhere...

It's 6 am I should get ready to go to work.

Thursday, February 08, 2007


Anna Nicole, how we'll miss you. I had something witty to say but now it's gone.

My friend Dave (who is from Seattle) is having a party tomorrow night.... he said there'd be single men there. I might crochet a nice tube top to wear.

So I'm watching Grey's Anatomy right now... being that I'm from Seattle and I've been on the State Ferries many times... I was not shocked by the scene I just saw of a burning ferry with charred people... we'll have to see how this plays out... I'll give my review when it's over.

A ray of sunshine in my life...

Besides Stinky the fact that there will be a new episode of the Office on tonight is making my world a little better . Phyllis is getting married. I would have enjoyed last weeks episode better if my tooth hadn't been killing me. I do recall there was a Benjamin Franklin impersonator who was thought to be a stripper.

I'm hoping that today I will get some work done on my paper and maybe do some grocery shopping.

I'm thinking about going to the Today show while I'm in New York. I would LOVE to meet Anne Curry. I have to figure out what sort of thing I should do to get their attention... I don't want to look like a stalker.

Teeth and Sympathy...

That's a catchy post title isn't it???

I'm tired of taking Advil for my teeth and I'm tired of cold weather and I'm tired of being poor. I lack the motivation and initiative to start writing my paper that's due in three weeks, I'm going to New York in less than a week and I feel less than prepared....

I need some affection... or maybe just someone to talk dirty to me a little bit. It might be nice. (okay mom, I hope you're not too offended... but hey you're a woman too!).

I can't blame how I'm feeling on PMS... grrr.....

Fun time in my studio...

I'm here right now with Karolina, Zac and Yummy. We're talking about life and art and Ellen Degeneres.

I'd say more but I'm losing my train of thought....

(Insert title of post here)

Once again I posted last night but then my computer froze up so I couldn't actually publish it.

For a rundown on what it said, I worked, advised, went to a mock interview and then I went to class. I tried to buy coffee yesterday but the pipes had frozen at Intelligentsia so I couldn't get it. I am drinking some coffee right now that's been in my refigerator for over a year (Trader Joe's) it's not too bad.

It's still cold.. supposed to climb into the low teens. I mentioned in the non post about it snowing yesterday so it wasn't as cold as the previous day but it was treacherous (in Seattle/Jim Foreman terminology not Chicago/Ellie Pai Hong treacherous).

Today I am giving a special tour at school... I can use the money because of the root canal... I'm going to work on my resume for a triage session for CAA which is being held this afternoon. I should work on my research paper at some point too... the clock is ticking and I'm going to run out of time...

That's it.

The icy build up on my heart and windowsill.

OkayI really don't have icy buildup on my heart but my windows are a different story. It's on the inside and it's getting thick.

Today is my long day... I'm working a WW meeting and then I have advising. I was supposed to work on my teaching resume but I've kind of slacked on that. I blame it all on the tooth. Then this afternoon there is a mock interview session for CAA and then I have class. I woke up once at a quarter to five this morning but managed to go back to sleep for a while. Now I just want to stay here on the futon and not go anywhere.

Maybe I do have icy buildup on my heart... I'll have to think about that one.

Monday, February 05, 2007

Student work....

here is a link for the website for the classes I TA'd for this summer. (my name is in lights under the faculty page). I will post the individual images from the people in my classes.

Early College Program exhibit

Pictures from Pisa...

I figured I should post some more pictures from my trip to Italy. These are from Pisa.

As I get my act more together I'll post more. I seem to be a little text heavy on my postings lately.

Now you know how it feels...

To have the sweet thought of Superbowl glory ripped from your heart while it's still beating.

I had a good time at the party though. Karolina made the best hotwings ever and there were also Lovie Smith and Mike Ditka cupcakes. There was also pizza, potato skins and other yummies. I'm not even getting on the scale today.

Can we talk about the weather? You know it's cold when there is ice buildup on the inside of your window ledge.

Sunday, February 04, 2007

I'll be watching you.

I love technology. It enables me to see who is checking up on me. I have a tracker which shows me the path of who loads my blog page. I have also posted a personal profile on yahoo personals... (okay don't go checking it out)... but I looked at some guy's profile this morning and he could tell that I looked at his profile so he checked out mine (get it?). He was cute - but he's looking for someone younger I think. It's sort of like high tech flirting. I suppose I could send the cute guy an email.. I'll consider it.

I'm all set to go to the Party. I went to Borders and bought a New York map and guide book for my trip. I then went and bought beer for the party... Redhook ESB. My second favorite beer in the world... my favorite you might recall is Alaskan Amber. You can't get it in Chicago... it's a shame. I have one in my fridge.. I'm just waiting for the right moment to drink it.

That's one reason I can't stay in Chicago when I'm done with school.... If I can't have my favorite beer what's the point?

Okay, I should know from New Years eve that I shouldn't start drinking before the party.... oh well, it could make the party more interesting.


things could be worse. I got an email from my friend Julie and she was in a car accident yesterday. So yes, it could be worse. Hopefully she's okay.

I've decided that I need to go out for a little bit today - not out in the out in the elements sort of way but the out of my apartment into some other place like Borders. I am going to a Superbowl party so that will get me out. After CBS Sunday Morning I'll hose myself off and get out.

My tooth is feeling alright. I did my tax return yesterday, I'm getting $694.00 back so that will be going towards my dental work (or rent)....

Okay, right now I'm done with my pitty party.

Saturday, February 03, 2007


this is an image I found when I googled cranky (they are cranky crabs).... I am cranky. I applied for a show back in Seattle and didn't get selected... that sucks... I have to keep reminding myself that I am in the best art school in the country so I do NOT suck when it comes to my artwork...just somedays it feels like it. I have to work on my documentation and learn how to talk about my work more eloquently.

My headache has come back and I have decided not to go to the party tonight. Is 6:30 too early to go to bed?

Feeling Better...

I am happy to report that I woke up this morning without a toothache. I now have a little bit of a headache but that might be from general stress.

Today it is FREEZING! Okay, it's less than freezing... with windchill below zero. I can see the steam coming off my cup of coffee on the window sill, and the coffee's not that hot.

I went shopping this morning for bread for my chipped beef boat . It's this dip that you put in a bread bowl... and it's low fat (NOT)... okay I take that back I'm going to make it lower fat than it usually is, but not that much lower. I'm taking it to a Superbowl party tomorrow. Go Seahawks... oh yeah that's right... they lost didn't they?

I have a party to go to tonight... and I should work on my paper from my Italy trip... or maybe I should take a nap.

Friday, February 02, 2007

My three favorite words today...


Let me tell you, I would rather be in psychotherapy... it would be cheaper.

Well, the tooth is still hurting although not as much. I went to a dentist and he took out a filling I had in my molar and then gave me the diagnosis that I had to have a root canal. Then he put a filling back in the tooth. Okay actually he told me about the root canal after he refilled the tooth but you know... I've been in pain and I don't want to rewrite.

So then it was off to an endodontist to have the root canal started. Now I'm popping advil and penicillin (I don't know how to spell that - sorry).

I will have it finished on the 20th. Then after that I have to go back to the dentist to have a post and fill done (I think that's what it's called), and then a crown. Thank goodness I have that emergency credit card.

Now I'm on the futon in my dinosaur nightgown. What a way to spend a Friday night! I did have a nice bath though... I think I'll go to bed early and hopefully my face won't hurt so much when I wake up.

I need pain killers.

Tooth (teeth?) hurt. Ouch. Must go cry now.

I wish I had new teeth.

My teeth are killing me. I may have to break down and find a dentist... I am currently sitting here with a heating pad on my face (yes, it's not easy keeping it there...) I've consumed 12 tablets of 200 mg. ibuprofen over the span of the last 12 hours and it still hurts - well actually it goes in spurts.

Right now it's starting to feel better - I won't cross my fingers though.

My eyebrows look pretty good.

My Achy Breaky Teeth

My teeth hurt. I think that's what's giving me my headache... I went to bed with one and I woke up with it as well.

It's reminding me of the time back in 2002 when I had a headache for over a month straight... it turned out it was allergies... it's too long of a story to go into here.

Today I'm finishing up my application and I'm working at WW. There's also my beutification process.

It's supposed to get into the single digits this weekend - I hate coldness.

I'm going to try to stay positive today, I better go load up on the painkillers.
