I managed to do it all!

as you can see from the photos we survived the big trip to the wedding... the only mishap was that one of my companions forgot her bra and she needed to borrow one from another friend. She didn't want to look like a hoochie mamma. and she didn't

I am now at camp sitting and drinking a cup of coffee and trying to think of all the things I need to do.... there are too many. As long as I can work on my flip flop tan I will be alright.

I will try to check in later but as they say in life there are no guarantees!

Saturday, June 28, 2008

Get me to the church on time...

have I told you yet that I have to go to a wedding tonight? Have I told you it's going to be almost 90 degrees outside? Have I told you I am indecisive on what I am going to wear? Have I told you that I am going to probably cry like a baby because I remember when both these people were little kids??? Have I told you that weddings drive home the point that I have not had a real boyfriend since 1986 (can you believe that???)?

It's enough to drive anyone insane.

On a brighter note... I think I may have what I need packed and ready to go. I don't have a lot of time here this morning to chit chat so I will leave you with this note.

One, use sunscreen and Two, don't let the girls get too out of control when you're wearing those skimpy summer fashions.

I will try to check in with you throughout the week but I can't promise you anything.

I'm not ready.

Luckily I got out of Honda of Seattle for under $650.00. I ended up having all my belts replaced and a tune up. I suppose it's better than buying a new car right?

I have just under 24 hours to get ready for camp. Here is a LINK FOR MY ADDRESS. I Love getting mail while I'm at camp - first of all because it makes me appear as though I'm popular, and second, they make you sing for your mail... and I love to be the center of attention.

It's supposed to be nice weather this weekend so you know what that means - ALL THE HOOCHIE MAMMA OUTFITS ARE COMING OUT! People just need to learn when to cover it up.... I'm sure I will be seeing at least a few people who need a supportive bra and a sweater. Maybe I should take out the camera today and do a photo essay on it...

And while I'm thinking of it - someone at my old place of employment has stumbled upon my blog... I hope you are enjoying it... I bet you never knew I led such an exciting life. You should come clean and let me know who you are... I like having fans. If you go to I heart Ann I think there's a link there where you can email me. You know you want to do it. Live a little... or maybe don't email me... it's kind of fun being a voyeur isn't it?

Okay, times a wasting! I tried to post an image that I got when I googled the term hoochie mamma... It didn't work. It was a girl in a bikini holding a beer bottle... just visualize it and maybe it will appear. Maybe I spelled hoochie wrong.

See you later.

I can't take it anymore....

I knew this week was going to be busy. I think I'm running out of time.

Last night my friend Matt filmed at our house but I was stuck in my room for over three hours. Considering I have a ton of things to do before I leave on Saturday it kind of sucked. This morning I'm taking my car in for service. Hopefully nothing is really wrong with it and it will be good as new.

I've had a few things come up this week that I didn't plan on and they aren't going as smoothly as I'd like. It entails things I can't talk about yet, but when I can it will be good. Yeah, I know I've talked about other things I can't talk about - but this time I really mean it. I will be able to talk about it soon.

Time is slipping away... I better go get ready. I'll try to chat more later.

yeee old checkup....

Okay, here's the rundown on my Dr. visit last night. I seem to be in good health and she (Dr. Borg) thinks that weighing 152 is pretty good. so pooh pooh weight watchers and your suggested weight ranges.... she is going to call back my paper chart and find out how much I weighed at my highest so I can have a point of reference.

The best part of the evening??? okay, maybe not the best part of the evening but I got to schedule my very first mammogram! I know, you are probably all as excited as I am! I figure the least I can do is talk about it as a public service (to the ten people who regularly read my blog). It's nothing to be ashamed of... in fact it's probably going to be the most action the girls have seen in a long time.

Today's agenda is full... work (with lunch at Benihana), working out and then filming at the house. I hope I can get home by SYTYCD (that's So You Think You Can Dance for you newbies out there). At some point I think I might have to start packing.

I'm looking forward to taking a nap sometime next week....

Off the Sauce!

I decided that the muscle relaxants were making me a bit too mellow so I didn't take them last night. My face doesn't hurt, but I did have a headache when I woke up.

I got some good news yesterday but I can't share it just yet. It has put me in a considerably good mood. (no I did not get asked out by a cute man....)

Time is running out on me... I have to get everything done in a short amount of time... pack for camp, clean for the movie shoot, go to the doctor tonight to get a check up (it's been over two years.... oops!).

I've been trying to help my mom figure out the new imac... it's hard sometimes.... I think eventually she'll get it... if not, it makes a nice dvd player. We are currently having problems with email... I suppose I should try to help her out a little before I get in the shower....

As always living la vida loca!

Monday, June 23, 2008

I think I'm awake...

I can't be too sure though.

I didn't get home last night until just past midnight. Tonight will be another semi-late evening... we're doing a studio visit at 8:15 at Soil. We are going to look at Matt's work which is the show "Deep Space Punctuated by Planets"...

I really don't think I'm going to have time to do all I need to this week before I go.

Yesterday I did manage to take myself out to breakfast... I went to the Rusty Pelican. It's alright but I've had better. Right now I still think the Coastal kitchen was my most memorable outing for breakfast in recent memory.

I love breakfast, I just wish it were better for me sometimes.

Okay, I'm going to hit the shower and try to wake up a bit more...

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Note to self.

So I think going out and having beer while you're on medication to relax your muscles isn't the best idea.

I'm a little bit muddy-headed this morning.

I am in the mood to have a yummy breakfast consisting of hashbrowns, sausage and or bacon and an eggy cheesy thing... That probably won't materialize though... when I'm at camp I'll get my turkey sausage (hmmmm... turkey sausage).

I am totally unprepared for camp. It starts a week from today - I have too much to do this week. Dr's appointment, filming at the house (Matt's movie), taking my car in for service, finding something to wear for a wedding next Saturday.... I'm sure I'll get it all done because I always do.

I think I'll make a list so I can start crossing things off...

Oh, I'm starting to feel a bit crampy too... oh great, one more thing to deal with.

I love you all!

Saturday, June 21, 2008

About last night.

I was watching 10 years younger and I wanted to stay awake for the second reveal but I made the mistake of laying down for a second... I was out like a light. Okay, maybe a light on a dimmer. I woke up about 10 minutes later and stumbled to bed.

Today I managed to get to ww and then to the gym... I became mesmerized by This American Life and listened to it while standing in the kitchen in my sweaty workout wear... I finally managed to take a shower.

I'm thinking I should take a nap before the opening tonight at the gallery. We were written up as a best bet in the PI yesterday. I'm looking forward to it, but I think sleeping would be beneficial in order for me to fully appreciate it.

Friday, June 20, 2008

I've made a decision.

I am not going to run in the morning... I'm not really prepared (but when am I ever really??) but I think doing my regular routine will be good for me.

I did manage to get my fellowship application in and I also submitted images to the Alumni Calendar.

I'm waiting for the muscle relaxants to kick in and I will go to bed pretty soon thereafter. I'm watching 10 years younger... if I looked 10 years younger I'd look about 25 I think. At least I have a youthful appearance for an old broad.

Tonight I also searched for condos online. Not that I can afford one... but it's good to dream.

Okay, I think I need to go to bed now, I'm starting to yawn and drift. That's a good name for a band - Yawn and Drift... okay, maybe not.

What could be better?

I'm sitting on the sofa with old crusty, a pot of my black cat blend and the television humming in the background... what could be better?

Okay, laying on a warm, sandy beach with a festive drink while having my feet massaged by a handsome young man might be better but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I still can't decide if I want to run tomorrow morning... I could record myself (the last time I ran it didn't work)... or I could weigh in and hang out with my ww friends and then work out... maybe I'll decide tonight.

Well, it's finally Friday. That's exciting... some people are going to be out of the office today so it might be kind of quiet. I find that the effects of the muscle relaxants make me kind of mellow. I don't think it makes me work slower, but I don't feel quite normal. My jaw does feel considerably better though. I guess it's the trade-off for healing.

Okay, I watch King 5 News and they have teasers for their segments called "Get Jesse". Jesse James (the reporter) goes after the bad guys and breaks car windows and makes the wrong-doers confess their sins... I find it rather amusing. I wonder what I could have Jesse fix for me? Maybe I could get him to find me a date? Now that would be a great public service.

Hmmm... I might have something there...

Thursday, June 19, 2008

yep, so....

I'm almost done with my Fellowship application... Did you doubt that I would finish?

For dinner tonight I had a Peanut Buster Parfait. It was yummy. I'm sure I'm going to be up this week when I weigh in (that's assuming that I go to the meeting instead of running in the Race for the Cure)...

I can't decide what I really want to do. Do I work on my art/firm thighs campaign? Or do I go to Weight Watchers and then go to cycling? I won't be able to go the following week because I'll be going to camp... Oh the decisions.

I've got a feeling.

I think it might be a long day.

Per usual I am not wanting to go to work... a nap seems in order.

I've been Pirate sitting and he seems to be doing pretty well... he hasn't been eating a lot though. I hope nothing is wrong... I'm sure he's alright.

My face seems to be doing better. It didn't really hurt this morning when I got up. That's a good thing.

My coffee is a bit strong this morning...

Today I am going to swing up to Crawl Space for the visitation at 11:00. I also really need to start my fellowship application (since it's due tomorrow....).

I suppose I better think about getting ready for work now... it's a good thing I did laundry yesterday - I have clean underwear.

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Updates on who googled me...

I was checking out my stats and someone at Cablevision googled my name with the phrase artstar after it. That's strange, why would they be doing that?? They spent almost an hour at the blog... or they could have been doing other things in between looking at what I've had to say...

Oh, another person googled "asses in jeans" again and got to the picture of me in the Target Dressing room... I bet you they were disappointed.

It's about time.

It is finally Wednesday. I don't feel as groggy as I did yesterday morning which is good. I was a bit spacey at work, but I still was able to work effectively (for those of you from work reading this...).

I am feeling unprepared for camp and getting my application together for the fellowship etc... I just need to get off my butt and do it.

Tonight So You Think You Can Dance is on... I have set the DVR to record it... Have I told you that I love cable and DVR? This way I won't have to rush to get home after being at the gym tonight.

Okay, I take back the not feeling as groggy statement. I'm not really groggy - I'm just spacing out a little bit.

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


I'm not sure how I feel this morning... I think my face feels a little bit better. I don't think it hurt as much when I woke up.

My visit yesterday was almost like going to a chiropractor for your jaw.

Well, to get to my story about the MDA Lockup... I got a call yesterday while I was at work saying someone had given my name as a person to be "locked up" to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It really pissed me off. Sure, I seem like a nice person who likes to help people and causes... but in reality I'm anti-social. I don't like it when people assume I'll do something... The only glimmer of a good thing is that if I agree to do this I will get taken away from the office by a Fireman. I requested that they be cute and single.

If I were trying to raise money for something I have an emotional investment in it might be different. aarrrrgh!

If you were the one who gave my name watch out, I'm not happy.

Today I am going out to lunch with some people from work - it's the birthday of one of the paralegals I work for. This is the first time I've gone to lunch with anyone from work (here)... It seems like people don't go to lunch that often... I have to eat something that I can cut up into little pieces and chew on my back teeth.

Tonight I get my hair done tonight too.. that's a good thing. I have too much grow out...

I think I might be groggy... or maybe I'm just not motivated to get going...

Goodbye chewy food - hello muscle relaxers!

It turns out that the disk in my jaw is a little bit out of place. Hopefully with some manual manipulation (sticking my finger in my mouth and massaging along the bony ridge), soft food and muscle relaxers it should get better.

I'm waiting until I'm done with the post to take the drugs. It's going to cause drowsiness and hopefully will help me not clench my teeth while I sleep.

I was cranky today... I think it's the constant headache from my jaw... I will try to remember to tell you tomorrow about my "nomination" for the MDA Lock Up... it made me cranky...

I think I better go to bed.

Are you Ready?

I'm thinking about it and I only have two more weeks to work and then I get to go to camp. That's a good thing.

I got a phone call from my former boss/hair stylist. She is a representative for a skin care line called Arbonne. She is growing her business and wants to talk to me about it. I'm a bit skeptical and I told her that much, but she is my friend so I said I would listen to her. It's bringing back nightmares about selling Tupperware (yes I did that too).

Last night I got a new flavor of rotisserie chicken - tandoori. It was pretty tasty. Not that it will replace my Greek Herb, but it was a nice change.

I didn't get around to starting my fellowship application (does that really surprise you?) but I did manage to get to the gym. I have to celebrate the small things...

Today is my appointment with the TMJ people so I'm leaving work early. Hopefully they will be able to help my face not hurt so much.

I have to leave a bit early this morning so I can get to the park and ride in time to catch the bus.

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Nine and a half hours.

You would think after that many hours of sleep I'd feel better. I don't really.

This morning I am taking my dad out to breakfast for fathers day. Then I need to pick up the screen printing stuff... I didn't get around to it yesterday - I ended up taking a nap instead. I also have to go to a birthday party for my aunt and niece this afternoon... and of course, I have to put together my fellowship application.

I'm really good at procrastination. I know I'll get everything done, I just wish I didn't always wait until the last minute.

I am feeling antsy today (well - I guess for the past week)... I need to do something different... did I mention that I did talk to the Curator from Chicago and I am having a show? That means I need to start working. I am going to definitely start when I get back from camp. I need to start organizing what I'm going to take with me, and then I have to start getting them printed out and framed. Oh the work I have to do.

Now I just need to find someone to father my children someday. And take a shower...

Have I mentioned how much I like to shower? I'm at Nancy's house and she has a very nice Kohler Shower head which makes it very enjoyable to take a shower... at least I have that to look forward to today (not that I'm not looking forward to my other tasks...).

I guess I'll go now. I have to check out what's going on on Facebook. Ciao!

Saturday, June 14, 2008

What's up?

Today is Saturday - but you probably already knew that....
I'm pretty bummed about Tim Russert - I used to see him when I was "stalking" Ann Curry on the today show... it's almost like I've lost a friend. I'm sure I have a picture of his shoes somewhere and I will try to post them when I get back to my own computer.

This morning I took my first cycling class since Monday. Damn, my legs hurt. That'll teach me to take more than two days off in a row. I also weighed in this morning and was down .8 pounds. Maybe that's the ticket... exercising less and eating the same. I think maybe I was not eating enough. We'll see how it goes next week before I jump to any conclusions.

Stinky is being extra "barky" today - maybe there's going to be an earthquake.

This afternoon I have a massage and then I need to purchase supplies for silkscreening at camp. I think a nap might be in order.

Sometime this weekend I need to finish up my Fellowship Application for Artist Trust. Okay, I have to Start it...

More later, I need to get jacked up on advil because my face hurts.

Friday, June 13, 2008

My face hurts.

I woke up this morning and my jaw hurts. I'm looking forward to going to the TMJ people... it's not painful enough to debilitate me but it is a pain in the butt - or should I say face. My shoulder has also been hurting - maybe that is part of the whole thing...

I got an email from the curator in Chicago whose gallery I am supposed to have a show at in September.... I hope everything is still a go. I have to get my act together. She asked a few months ago if I wanted to participate in a summer show (which I do) but she is going to be in Chicago the week I am going to be at camp. I wish I had known sooner. it sucks that I can't just drop everything and fly to Chicago... too expensive and too short of notice. I NEED A BENEFACTOR/PATRON.

Tonight I have to deliver food to our resident artist. On tap this weekend I have to get my fellowship application put together for Artist Trust, get a massage, and take my dad out to breakfast for father's day. I'm sure there's other things that I'm forgetting about... Oh yeah, I need to start planning the screen printing class I'm going to do at camp.

I better get off to start my day. SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance) was not a shocker last night... Rayven and Jamie were eliminated... it's too soon for me to care)...

Thursday, June 12, 2008

where do they come up with these shows?

Currently I am watching Bravo's A-List awards which are kind of amusing but they had an ad on for a show where one of the people who was on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or wherever is being set up by her ex-boyfriends.

so I realize that was a very LONG run-on sentence. I think maybe I should go to sleep... Went to the dentist this morning and he referred me to a TMJ specialist. Yippe! maliofacial disease!

Our studio intensive residency starts tomorrow... with the opening next Saturday. come and see!

viva la elvis.

What could be better?

What could be better than a good cup of coffee, a sofa and wifi? Well, I suppose financial security, the love of your life and six pack abs might be better but I don't have those right now so the coffee will have to do.

I am having a serious case of I don't want to go to work ever again... there's got to be more than this.

Camp is coming up and that will be good for me.

I have been put in charge of arranging field trips for the Crawl Space membership... we need to get out and see things but we don't always do it.... I have to figure out where we should go.

Okay - the bright spots in my life today??? Lunch with my lovely assistant Kristen and it's payday tomorrow.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

sofa time...

I think the world needs more sofa/internet places.... just set up bars/living rooms with free wifi and let people come in and wear their bathrobes and slippers and surf the web and watch television at the same time.... if you hadn't figured it out I am sitting at Nancy's house with old crusty on my lap. I am currently watching So You Think You can Dance... you might recall that last year I was very involved in this show (I think it's my years of training with the Sheila Clark School of Dance)... It's too early for me to pick favorites....

So.... I get to go to the dentist tomorrow... of course my face doesn't hurt so much anymore. Oh well... it's better to find out if there is something wrong...

Today is day number two without going to the gym... it's kind of strange.

It's almost time for the season finale of Top Chef Chicago.... oh I love television.

Dreams of cake and attorneys....

I had some crazy dreams last night. I was at work but it wasn't the office, it was church... and we were having a regular party along with a surprise party for one of the attorney's birthdays. Somehow I ended up with him sitting on my lap while I was naked (I was being used as a decoy to get him to a place where we could spring the cake on him). I managed to get out of the way before everyone could see me in my birthday suit (ha ha get it?)....

It was weird. Someone else in the dream was video taping everything... they caught the attorney and I talking and I got all freaked out because I didn't want people to think that there was anything going on between us (like I had something to feel guilty about)... It was just very strange. I need to get out more.

Yesterday afternoon I was feeling very anxious. I get that way sometimes... I think I need to start thinking about making some changes in my life when it comes to the artwork... loosely translated that means I need to start making.

Tonight I start watching Pirate the cat again.... I have to figure out the commute from Edmonds. I may just end up driving my car from there to my house so I can work out after work... there goes the bank account into the gas tank...

I am going to the dentist tomorrow morning to get the tooth checked.... maybe I'll be able to cut down from 16 Advil a day...

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I am going to do it...

Now I've forgotten what that was.... oh yeah, I'm going to call the dentist today and have him check out my teeth. We'll see if we can get the whole jaw aching thing taken care of.

This morning is the first morning I REALLY don't want to go to work... but I have that damn work ethic and I must go. There's more to life and I'm just not finding it right now.

Tonight is going to be a late night - we (Crawl Space) have a studio visit and then a meeting. I'm sure I won't be home until at least 11 and you know how cranky I get when I don't have any sleep.

These are Cranky Pants and that's what I'll probably look like tomorrow morning...

I suppose I should quit pooping around now and get off my ever-tightening ass... (that didn't sound too good now did it?).

Monday, June 09, 2008

Monday mornings shouldn't be this hard.

It's not really hard, but I would really like to be sleeping in today.

I have a bit too much going on this week... meetings, house sitting, and then there's that thing called a job. It would be nice if I didn't have to do all those things.

I think I mentioned a while back that my face was hurting... it still is and I think I'll break down and call the dentist tomorrow. He's not open today so I'll have to wait. I woke up yesterday and my jaw was aching.... not nearly as bad as when I had to have my root canal but still.

I think I really like this new computer my momma has... bigger screen, more groovy applications... maybe I'll get my act together and figure out how to get my laptop hooked up the the cable... I'm sure I can do it but it just take initiative on my part.

Yesterday's post forgot to include a cinnamon roll.... that was good.

Saturday was busy but good. I went to a birthday party of a former camper of mine who turned 30. Boy, where do the years go? In fact there were a bunch of former campers there and a lot of them are married and some even have kids (okay only two were married but you know....). Yikes! Where has all the time gone? Last night as I was having dinner with my mom at Claire's Pantry I realized that I'll be sixty in only 19 years... I know that sounds like a long time, but when you really think about it it's not.

Everyone out there whose not doing what you want to do JUST DO IT! You don't want to wake up when you're 40 or 50 and not be satisfied with your life....

Okay, I better get off my butt and get ready for work...

Sunday, June 08, 2008

Things I ate yesterday that I shouldn't have...

Hot fudge brownie sundae (two of them)
Brownie - single serving (three)
Beer (four)
Sausage stuffed mushrooms (three)
Cured meat (6 big slices)

It sure was good though. I have no regrets.

Saturday, June 07, 2008

my legs have lost all feeling.

They haven't really lost all their feeling but it's close.

Today has been a bit busy... ww, cycling, a workshop... now I have a few hours before I have get up and go out again for the evening... drinks and then a birthday party. Should be fun but tiring.

I think it's time for me to do something else... I don't know what that "else" is just yet, but I know it's not what I've been doing.

does anyone want to see my stretchmarks?

Friday, June 06, 2008

I wonder...

I wonder if I could go a day without posting... or more... what would it be like?

I know I've done it before...

I'm feeling a bit antsy today... I was going to use the word anxious but that doesn't quite fit...

I think it's the lack of not making anything in recent months... I'm itching to do stuff.

So... to continue on with my mention last night of crushes. Why is it so hard for me to let people know I think they are groovy? I think it's my fear of rejection. I think I just expect people to turn me down so I don't even bother. I have so many crushes I can't even count them on one hand. Do I do anything about it? No. What's it going to take? Looking forward to a life with 50 assorted cats and dogs and the "crazy lady" stigma attached to owning so many furry animals.

Food for thought.

Last night I went to a few openings - One was Jamie Potter's show at 4Culture I will try to get a link to it later... He makes beautiful work. If I had a spare 1,200 laying around I would buy a piece.

Thursday, June 05, 2008

Hello from the imac

Let's see if this works today... it seems to be alright so far...

Good News - I got the right splitter and now I have cable...

I will post more tomorrow morning. Remind me to tell you my thoughts on crushes....

Burnt out and wireless.

Last night we did some exercises in body sculpting that totally burnt out my legs. They aren't sore this morning, but I have a feeling they will be tomorrow.

Well, I am happy to report that we have digital cable and high speed internet, but I am unable to access either one. The old splitter we had on the television won't work so I can't get the cable up to my room and then I haven't had the time to figure out the internet at all.

Wait, I just got the new imac to work so I will continue this post there... (maybe).

okay, that didn't work.....

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

It's a good thing but not really

I mentioned last night that I was online for over an hour trying to figure out why I haven't received any email messages since Monday afternoon. They still haven't figured it out... maybe they all disappeared with my Fedex box that I sent to myself in December.

I guess I can live without them, but it's a bit annoying....

Today we are getting our Comcast bundle which includes high speed internet! Yay! My mother will be able to set up her imac and I'll be able to play with it! Who knows, I may even blog from it. But I will not forget old crusty here (my laptop). She has served me well over the past four years.

Let me see... my shoulder still has a big knot in it and I think I may have to visit the chiropractor. I'm falling apart, but my thighs are getting firmer.

Okay, I better get going. I have to disconnect the cable that is secretly running to the television in my bedroom!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008


I just spent over an hour online trying to figure out why my email isn't working.... so.... If you're trying to reach me you know why... you can't.



My jaw has been hurting for the past few days. I can't determine weather or not it's actually my jaw or my teeth though... it doesn't hurt like when I had to have my root canal - but it's a dull ache which isn't going away... I may have to call the dentist - thank goodness I have insurance.

Speaking of pain, I'm thinking of signing up for a fitness boot camp being put on by my cycling instructor.... I don't know if I could make all the sessions but it would be fun to have my ass kicked by a professional.

More pain news... I've had a knot in my shoulder since Sunday night... that's not bringing me any joy... maybe someone should just shoot me.

Okay, enough complaining... do I have any good news??? No, not really. I let Stinky sleep with me last night. She didn't hog the bed too much.

I guess that's it for now. Catch you on the flip side...

Monday, June 02, 2008


Times are a changing (and I've gone missing)...

So... I realized that I didn't post yesterday.

Things are getting interesting.. The artist membership of Crawl Space is changing... a few people are leaving and there is a bit of a sense of unsure-edness (is that a word?).

I can understand some people's uncertainty of the future but I have faith things will work out. Change is a good thing. If I hadn't left and gone to school I don't think I'd be who I am today.

Yesterday I decided to go to the Arboretum and take pictures... I will post some later for you all. I realize that sometimes I get stuck in a rut and don't venture out much... I need to mix it up a little bit sometimes, hence the trip to take pictures.

Wednesday we get Cable Internet! Yay! I hope that we can manage to get me hooked up as well and the new computer.... I should probably look into an airport base station so I can connect wirelessly... Oh the things I will be able to do (sit on the sofa and blog)... online chats with single men.... ordering online with QVC while I watch...
