I have a fan and good cleavage.

Okay maybe I don't have a fan... I did find someone in Singapore (or was is Taiwan?) who is watching Artstar Season II (did I ever actually tell you that I got on the show?) and he though my view on how art should be to be interesting. I don't quite remember what I said - it was so long ago - almost two years... he also asked me not to tell him how it turns out. I should tell him I don't know how it turns out because I've never seen any of the footage.

I'm doing an evening post because I didn't go to cycle tonight. My charlie horse last night has left my left butt cheek very very very very tight. It even hurts to sit down and try to lift my leg. I've got a call into the chiropractor maybe he can fix it... it's the whole hip/butt area... I'd let him touch my butt... but not in an inappropriate way.

I've been looking at the schedule for my show and I'm getting a bit nervous. I am planning to spend a bunch of time in the studio this weekend so that will be good. Get me working on things.

I think I'm going to go now - the Office is on and you know how I like to watch the Office.

Do we really need another show about families with too many children?

I miss the good old days of TLC. The channel just seems to play John and Kate Plus 8 over and over again.... I was looking on the website last night and saw that there is going to be a new show about the Duggars (their son and his wife are having a baby)... enough is enough already... how many shows can you have about people having too many kids?

Onto another subject... charlie horses. Last night as I was going to sleep I got the worst one in my entire life - I've only had one other that I can remember... let me tell you - it hurts like a mother. Luckily it went away fairly fast but my leg still feels funky (I think it's because I only worked out that leg on Monday night)...

I can't stay long this morning - I need to take the garbage out before I leave and that may take a while....

April has been a good Birthday month.... I'll be sad to see it go.

Getting ready for the epidemic.

I found these masks at the place I'm housesitting so I will be well prepared when the swine flu hits Seattle.

I'm not going to worry about it too much - there's nothing that you can do about it - just treat it if you get it.

I was reading last night that my least favorite actress is going to be having twins. Sarah Jessica Parker... eww. I bet you she's probably a really nice person but I don't like her - she bugs me. I wonder why she chose to use a surrogate? Maybe she doesn't want to get fat.

This week at work has been a bit quiet. My neighbor Cindy is on vacation and without her nobody really talks to me. That's alright I guess. I get more work done that way.

Last night I went to target and picked up some things for my studio... a desk chair, cork tiles, scissors, powerstrips and a broom. I'm glad I decided to get a studio - it's making me want to work on things... I get that warm fuzzy feeling inside when I think about making things.

Oh well, maybe if I get the swine flu I can hold up in the studio and make work about it.

I think I'll get going... I only have about 15 minutes before I really have to get up and get ready for work.

Good Morning Left Glute!

Last night I was a few minutes late for body sculpt - I missed working on the right leg. I did manage to work out the left leg. It's the same leg which was hurting yesterday morning. (Hip) Ouch.

Here are some photos from Tacoma...

Tonight I hope to spend at least an hour at the studio... I got a bunch of stuff in there Sunday but haven't really had time to spread stuff out and get organized. I wish there was more time to do things... oh well.

Freaking Stinking Tired...

I can't believe it's only Monday... I feel like I've been through the ringer... I think I might fall asleep sitting up.

Maybe I'll just go to bed and update you all on everything in the morning...

It's Monday again.

My weekends have just been too busy for my liking. I need a weekend from my weekend.

Yesterday I actually skipped cycle class to take things to my studio. I was going through boxes and was reminded how much I really miss making things. I just have to figure out how to fit everything into my life right now.

This week at work my sidekick Cindy is on vacation - I am going to be busy... I guess that's better than always having to look for things to do.

I'm happy to report that my arm is feeling better - the cortisone kicked in and it's just a little sore where I got the shot.

Also.... I accompanied my friend Jenna to the America's Got Talent auditions yesterday - she made it up to the Executive Producers but didn't make the show. She did however get the attention of the people and had a bunch of shots taken of her dressed up in her bacon costume. I may make it into a montage as well... it was pretty funny... I will post photos of her in all her bacon glory later.

I should wrap it up - I've got to get a move on a bit early this morning.

Sunday, April 26, 2009

What now???

I really think I'm falling apart. I woke up this morning and my hip is out of whack. That in addition to my arm - I'm a piece of work.

Here are some photos from trip to Olympia yesterday...

If you seem one hippy granola parade you've seen them all...

It was nice to have a change of scenery though...

I'm beginning to worry about my show in July - I need to get cracking on some new things.... If only I didn't have to work for a living... It will all work out... it always does.

Old Scary Times.

The Towner girls in the front yard of Mom's house....

Yours truly discussing hair accessories before the dance recital...

My friends Tara, Audrey and I at Pilgrim Firs... Tara's face has been cut off...

Jenna and I at the Firs....

The girls are looking good!

Today during lunch I went to Nordstrom and had a bra fitting. Let's just say I wasn't exactly wearing the size I should have been. Close but no cigar.

I did manage to come away with three new bras and change left over in my wallet. THEY WERE ALL ON THE SALE RACK!

It was a good day... all with the exception of my elbow hurting... it's got a nice bruise on it.

I managed to take some things over to the studio tonight. I met my neighbors... Judy and Tricia? I'm bad with names... I think things will work out fine.

Okay, I better get going...

Ouchy ouch ouch ouch.

I am waking up this morning with a really sore elbow.

I went to the Doctor yesterday and she gave me another shot of cortisone and let me tell you it really smarts. It didn't hurt like this last time... I think it's because it was injected in the most painful part and it's right in the joint. I've taken some advil and hopefully it will get better. If this doesn't work overall I'll have to either go to physical therapy or a hand specialist.

That's just what I need.

Looking forward to this weekend - I am going to be moving stuff into my studio, house-sitting for that wayward cat Sammy, traveling to Olympia for the parade of the species and potluck and then Sunday afternoon I will be lending moral support to my friend Jenna who is auditioning for America's Got Talent. Maybe I can live vicariously through her. She plays the ukulele and sings a song about bacon all while being dressed up like a piece of bacon. It's swell... I may have posted a photo of her in the costume before... she was called by the producers to come in for a private audition.

I am looking forward to setting up the studio - I just wish I had more time - Maybe I'll take some stuff over this evening... hopefully my arm won't be so sore.

Okay, I have to get a move on. hugs and kisses to you all...

Birthday Review.

I have to admit that my birthday went pretty well... I managed to make it through the seminar and got back to work where birthday coffeecake and cookies were waiting for me. I also got truffles from one of the copy/tech support reps. I was taken out to lunch as well. All around it was really swell.

My momma gave me the wii game Town Crossing City Folk. I ended up staying up until 11:20 trying to figure it out... it could be interesting.

Hightlights of my day?

I got to talk to a lot of my friends via email and phone.

I ran into the most beautiful UPS man in the world and he gave me a hug.

I went to the gym and saw Mr. Arms from afar - didn't talk to him but I did manage to find out what his car looks like (two door sedan - silverish Mazda) A sensible car if you ask me.

Not too bad to kick off the first day of my 42nd year... is that it? or is it the first day of my 43rd year - I think that's it.

Okay - on to today! I get to go back to the Doctor and have my elbow checked again... it's hurting. Hopefully I'll get another shot and won't have to resort to therapy just yet.

I guess I should get going... I'm bummed to see that my favorite airline (Alaska) has decided to start charging for their passengers first checked bag. Boooo!

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

It's my birthday! (so why am I up at 4:30???)

Happy birthday to me! Okay, I really should be asleep right now but I have to be at work at 6:30ish. I think I might crash tonight at 5:30. I'm guessing that will be the case...

I got home last night around 10:10... the meeting wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I still feel like a dunce sometimes though... maybe someday I won't feel that way...

I am going out to lunch today and then I think I will go to the gym after I'm done with work... Provided I don't crash too hard.

I am having a heck of a time this morning... I'll give myself 10 minutes before I start getting ready. The seminar I have to check in people for is going to be at the WAC. You never know, I meet my future husband there... I have to look cute!

Waaaa? I'm feeling sort of like I used to when I was a regular at the Today show... very tired and wanting not to REALLY get up. This is a link to a promo I found for Artstar last week... they were having a marathon... I don't know if they were actually showing the episodes of the second season or the first... the description was for the first season - the promo is for the second season... who knows if we'll ever get to see it.

Okay, I better get going... I'll try to check back in later

Party On!

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

It's going to be a long day.

Stinky is wishing you all a good morning...

Even though I have to go to the dentist this morning and don't have to leave quite as early it is still going to be a long day...

Dentist, work, a pre birthday dinner and then a meeting. Tomorrow morning I have to be at work by 6:30ish. I am going to be tired.

Yesterday I picked up the keys for my studio. I wish I could just move in stuff today as opposed to doing all that other stuff I have to do.

These are a few photos I took from the window of my studio. It's small but nice.


My friend Rachel is in the hospital again so I am asking everyone for their good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.


This is one of the perks of my job. As I said yesterday my desk at work looks out onto the Sheraton. It was sunny out yesterday - people in hotel rooms have a habit of looking out their hotel windows when they are naked or half naked when the sun is out.

Here's one of those people...

If he only knew that I was taking pictures of them... at least he had underwear on. The guy earlier was completely naked. I'm looking forward to the sunny days.

I guess I should get going... gear myself up for the long day.

Monday, April 20, 2009

First naked man of the season.

My desk at work looks across to the Sheraton hotel. This morning I saw my first naked guy. He was brushing his teeth in the window... I'd say he was on the 19th floor or something like that. I should get out my video camera and take footage.

Maybe today won't be so bad???

Happy Birthday week to me!

It is my birthday week! Hello everyone!

I woke up this morning and my arm was asleep. It's the arm that contains the elbow that has the tendonitis... I'm going to get it checked again on Thursday - hopefully I will get another shot

Look where the morning has gone... I have to go - I'll try to be back later.

I'm sorry this hasn't been more stimulating!

Sunday, April 19, 2009

I survived Red Robin...

I think I ate my weight in french fries and onion rings...

Here's a recap... Matt and Miriam... what a cute couple...

My birthday sundae....

Steve and I celebrating with our birthday sundaes .

Our waitress Ebony - she was very cute.

It was fun... I'm suffering from the effects of too many onion rings though... if you've ever had a blooming onion you know what I mean...

On a side note I would like you to see what I accomplished yesterday on the wii fit.

I had to take a picture to prove it... perfectly centered. yee haw.

In addition to all the birthday celebrations yesterday I also adjusted my goal at ww and lost enough that I didn't have to pay. I just have to keep my act together and stay within my weight range. It sucks to have a high BMI and low percentage of body fat.... that's what you get when you're fit. If I could just do anything it would be to get rid of some of the excess skin around my belly and underarms... Oh well, it can't be a perfect world.

Today I have no idea what I'm doing with the exception of going to cycle this morning. I may dig stuff up out of the garage for my studio... maybe I should plan what I'm going to wear for my birthday on Wednesday. The posiblities are limitless.

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Good Morning.

I woke up this morning and had that feeling that I had to go to work... luckily I came to my senses and remembered that it's Saturday. WHAT A RELIEF...

This weekend I have to start getting things organized to move them into my studio... Maybe I'll start a list and then go through the garage and see what I can transfer from in there. It will be nice to have someplace to go do things.

I'm trying to think of titles for my show - I won't divulge yet... I've got my official punctuation checkers at work.

Today I think I am going to work on my studio packing and then tonight my friend Matt and his family will help me celebrate my upcoming birthday at Red Robin. Every year I get a coupon for a free burger and last year I started a new tradition of going out with them. It's kind of fun... makes me feel like I have another family. I may have to work out extra long in order to have french fries! Yummy!

After that I have another friend who is playing at Third Place Books tonight... I haven't seen him in a while so I might swing by... it is right down the street so I have no excuse.

Okay - I should get ready to go weigh in... I think I should be down - I only had a little bit of sugar yesterday - I think that's the key...

Talk to you later.

Friday, April 17, 2009

This morning....

I was down over two pounds on the wii fit this morning... I didn't eat any sugar yesterday - maybe I should try that again... but it is cookie day. We'll see how it goes.

I don't think I've ever been so happy as to see a Friday come... you know, next week is my birthday week...


I sure am happy it's Friday.

It's been a long week and I am ready to curl up in a little ball and weep.

I made it through cycle last night without crying (that's a good thing). Survivor was pretty good last night - a blindside that I didn't really see coming.

I have to get on the wii fit before I run out of time... more later if I get the chance before work.


Thursday, April 16, 2009

Stressed for the following reasons....

I have to start thinking about my next show.

I am not currently liking my job. Okay, I don't mind the job - it's just hard to work with people who talk trash about you.

I'm single.. not that that's anything to stress about.... I'm just tired of being a dud when it comes to my social life.

The "I'm a fraud as an artist" feeling is creeping back in.

I wish I had clarity - the only thing I know is that I am in love with a new store in Lake City - it's called the Beer Authority. Too bad I don't drink.

There's no crying in cycle

Last night I thought I was doing alright and I was cycling along during class and minding my own business when my instructor said something that hit me the wrong way... she usually makes comments to make us push ourselves harder but last night it just hit in the wrong spot and I started to cry.

During class she asked me if I was alright and I shook my head no and that only made it worse. It's a good think I had a towel for my runny nose.

It was just like the Biggest Loser when Jillian yells at one of the contestants until they are a blubbery ball of goo on the gym floor.

I managed to make it through class - it's quite an endurance challenge to keep from losing it while your sweating you head off and trying not to hyperventilate.

Things will be alright.

I paid my deposit on the studio and I get to check in next Monday.

That's good news.

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I used to be funny....

Last night I was looking over posts from a year ago and I think I've lost my funny-ness. Maybe it's just changed... I think working full time has taken the funny from my life.

Happy tax day everyone. I did my taxes online a few weeks ago and the money I did get back is gone. I have to spend money on my teeth - I need new shocks - I need a down payment for the studio... yes, I think I'm going to take the studio. I have to figure out what I need to cut back on. I hate to cut back on my waxing regimen but it's the only thing that keeps me living at the moment - the thought of clean legs, brows and lips...

Today is my friend Shirley's last day at work. I'm going to miss her but I'll be alright. I've worked without her before - and I'll work without her once again. I think I said once before that I would detail her car if she asked me to... and it's not because I'm a suck up - it's because when you respect someone like that you trust them and you don't really question what they ask.... you know they have your best interests at heart and they wouldn't do anything to throw you under the bus.

So - a week from today is my birthday... here's my list (for family and close friends who feel the need to get me a present!).

Heartrate Monitor (preferable one without a chest strap - my last one broke).
Running Shoes
Teeth Fixed
New Shocks
Microwave and Minifridge for my studio.
Table for my studio (a long one)
Manicure / Pedicure

Or you could always take me to lunch....

There you go.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Another exciting night at the Towner house...

Currently both my mother and my aunt are sleeping on the sofas.... with empty wine glasses on the table next to them....

Oh, what I have to look forward to when I grow up.

One more thing before I head off to work...

A flower from my Easter walk...

The cake I made for Cindy's Birthday...

The studio I looked at yesterday and am trying to figure out if I can really afford it... (I want it...).


I have that crampy gassy feeling I love so much - I think if you threw me in a pool I would float to the top because of the bloat.

I'm not going to be long this morning - I have stuff to do.

More later.

More Crazy Dreams

I've had some strange dreams the past few nights... last night I dreamed about going to Kidd Valley and ordering hamburgers for me and my momma... I couldn't read the menu and it was taking a really long time. There was a buildup of a line behind me. I was getting stressed out.

Later in my dream I was at summer camp and my tooth started to fall out. I was really upset because I didn't want to lose the tooth and I wasn't looking forward to traveling from Port Orchard to Seattle to get it fixed. The tooth was sticking out to the side and very unsightly.

Easter dinner went pretty well, I got to sit at our first official "kids table". Katie is big enough to sit in her own chair so Max, Leo, Katie, Grandma and I sat in the kitchen. It was good because I didn't pick at the food at the table (because there wasn't any).

This afternoon I have an appointment to look at studio space... hopefully that will all work out. Hopefully my tooth won't fall out and maybe I'll get lucky and meet my future husband.

Sunday, April 12, 2009

It's the day to sing my favorite hymn...

regular readers of my blog should know by now that my favorite hymn is Christ the Lord is Risen Today. If I HAD gone to church I would have sung it. But alas, I did not go. I guess I'll just have to go on Christmas... come to think of it I didn't go last year on Christmas because it was canceled because of the snow.


Anyways, I slept in until 7:45 this morning... what is up with that? I did wake up at 5:37 though and got up for a few minutes. I came to my senses though and went back to bed.

My family is coming over this afternoon for dinner. We're having turkey and potato salad.

I'm feeling better today - now that my friend Rachel is doing as well as can be expected (as far as I know) I feel more optimistic.

Tomorrow I am looking at studio space... I don't know if I can really afford it, but I don't think I can not afford to do it. It will kick my butt into gear.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter (or should I say Hoppy Easter?)... bite some heads off of chocolate bunnies for me.

Saturday, April 11, 2009


I heard that Rachel made it out of surgery fine and the Doctors think the tumor is benign.

That's definitely good news. Thanks to all of you who sent positive thoughts in her direction!

I'm not sure.

Today I think I'm feeling better. I think everyone's week sort of sucked. I'm trying to send positive vibes to my friend Rachel and hope that she comes through her surgery alright...

The reason I really like Rachel is that she is one of the most positive people I know... she's not one of those positive people that you want to hold down and pummel with your fists until they are bloody. No, she's generally upbeat and is excited about everything... even when things aren't going her way she manages to put a positive spin on things.

Her facebook status page says

WE'RE ENGAGED!!!! and.... "it [is] a tumor" :(

She just got engaged a few weeks ago ? Last week? and then diagnosed with a brain tumor... I think of all possible people who could beat this head on it's her.

We were co-counselors last summer... she has a way with everyone... even the campers who decide to not take showers... She's a gem.

Okay, regular readers (I know who you are....) keep thinking positive thoughts for Rachel.

I'm not even going to complain about being up 1.8 pounds this week!

Friday, April 10, 2009

What a difference a day makes.

I thought this week was turning out to be a good one but I was wrong.

A friend of mine from camp was found to have a mass in her brain a few days ago. She's having surgery tomorrow to take it out. This really sucks - this makes my personal petty problems diminish in comparison.

Now to my petty problems - I was informed yesterday that I was to no longer have crusty II out on my desktop during work hours. I'm alright with this - I can understand - but why don't "you" crack down on all those other people who use their phones to surf the web during the day? I've never not gotten any work done - I'm tired of it all - "they" really know how to steal the soul out of someone. It makes me really cranky - If "they" keep this up they're going to keep losing good people. It's counterproductive.

I have never wished ill will towards anyone... until now.

bleepity bleep bleep bleep! ARGHHHHH!

On a brighter note - Sakura Con starts today at the convention center... I'm taking my video camera and filming some of the costumes people are going to wear. It should be fun.

I better go. Try to get less cranky.

Good News, Bad News.

The good news is that the chiropractor measured my body fat and I'm at 21 %. That's pretty good. The bad news is that the Wii tells me I'm overweight. I know it doesn't really count and I'm not overweight it's because they measure the bmi and that doesn't take into account people who work out a lot.

I guess that's not really bad news but it is a little bit. My elbow hurting again is bad news.

Last night I went to Lola for dinner. It was really good - Mediterranean inspired. It's family style... we had a sampler plate of kebabs, pita, spreads, olives etc.. and then I ordered chicken with pine nuts, grapes, capers and currants... it was good.

When I got home I was beat... I missed part of Lost because I was looking at the inside of my eyelids.

I found out who started stirring the pot about me at work. It wasn't who I though... oh well, I can just do what I do. And continue to be talked about because I'm so efficient.

Tonight I have a dilemma - Survivor is on and a new episode of the Office. I think I'll have to watch survivor so I have something to talk to Cindy about tomorrow and then watch the office online.

Hopefully today goes without any hiccups. Work has been pretty good - weird because Shirley's leaving but I'll be okay... just keep plugging away.

My Birthday is coming up so maybe I should start planning the celebration.

Better go.

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

A simple request.

Please go to this blog


And follow the instructions.

I'm all for helping out other artists.

What to do now...

So, I've lost the keys to the gallery. That sucks... I also lost all my little bar code cards for the grocery stores along with them. That damn weight watchers 10 percent key ring piece of junk... it's loose and things fall off of it.

Let's see - this morning my tooth hurts - I hope it's not a root canal waiting to happen - I can't afford it.

My hair looks a little funky - I think I look like Andy Warhol a bit (or Pat Benetar).

This morning I'm going to the chiropractor... that will be good.

Tonight it's out to dinner at Lola. It's a Tom Douglas restaurant - I got a gift certificate for half price (50 bucks for 25 plus shipping)... I'm going with Shirley and my friend Zaida from work - I'm sure someone will have a problem with it but I don't care... we're friends.

Can you tell I'm a little bit cranky this morning?

I better go.

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

Holy Freaking Jesus!

I love having wifi on the bus. Right now I'm heading on my way to get my hair done.

I can't wait to see what I come out looking like. Last time you recall I had a survivor style haircut. This time I don't know what I'll do.

First things first though. Today I applied for a business license. I guess that means I'm officially an artist - I'll have the license to prove it.

What else happened today??? Not much - steady in the work department - no lulls which is good. I guess I better go before my connection is lost.

Hello Hotdogs!

Last night it was too nice to go to the gym so I decided to stay home, light up the barbie and take some photos...

I feel a little bad about not going to the gym, but it was too nice. The sun was out, birds were singing, kids playing... you know if this keeps up I'll have to be subjected to all that warm weather bad fashion that I love so much.

I got a response from the ActiveSpace people and I'm going to look at spaces next Monday. I'm pretty excited about it... I'm not excited about spending more money, but I do think it will be good for me to have a place to work.

I went to the dentist yesterday and have a beautiful temporary silver crown - it woke me up at 3 am though... I hope hope hope hope hope it doesn't get to the point where I need a root canal. I can't afford it!

Okay, one more thing. I've been asked to house sit again so that's good. It's for the "cats" you remember Sammy (the one on the roof) and Emma. It pays well - I'll be able to pay for my crown!

I think that's it this morning... I wish I could stay here but I can't. Must go to work.

Monday, April 06, 2009

I'm here...

I just got busy this morning on the Wii and time slipped away.
I'm at lunch right now but can't stay long... I have a dentist appointment and I have to leave early so I'm not taking a full lunch.

I've made an appointment to look at studio space next monday... woot woot.

I ate pho for the first time last night - not really official pho but a "fusion" pho... it was good! I'm branching out!

Look what my mom found!

Nothing like a permed mullet and big earrings. Check out the nice watch band!

Old Lady complaint number one.

This morning my chief complaint is my aching back. Another complaint I have is my elbow but we'll get to that later.

I think I've said it before but I can't stay in bed too long in the morning because it hurts to be horizontal sometimes... I think right now it's a result from my run in with the pointy gold shoes of death a few weeks ago. My lower back and hips are barking. Hopefully my visit to my favorite Chiropractor ever will remedy that situation.

I"m thinking of all I have to do today - it's not incredibly busy but enough to keep me hopping. It all starts out with a workout session at my alma matter (Nathan Hale) followed by brunch and then a Crawl Space meeting this evening and then dinner. It almost makes me feel like I'm popular.

This little vine is growing in through the window of Crawl Space... it has little bugs on it so it should probably be removed at some point... oh well...

What else is on my mind this morning? I mentioned earlier that my elbow is sore. It's the tendonitis coming back (okay maybe it never left)... I think the cortisone shot is wearing off... I have to make another appointment for a check up.

I'm a bit gassy too... I'm sure you wanted to know that didn't you?

I wish I could afford to go somewhere... take a airplane somewhere... Hawaii or Chicago might be nice...

Saturday, April 04, 2009

What's new pussycat?

whoa whoa whoa!

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to post but it's been a busy day... it all started out with me gaining 1.8 pounds this week at ww. I'm alright with that... I ate crap all week long - I didn't expect to be down.

After ww I went for coffee with the ladies (and Bill) and then went to the gym. No Mr. Arms... maybe he's on spring break.

After the gym I went to get everything waxed. Let me just tell you that I am hooked. I had my chin waxed while I was at it... Just call me the hairless wonder.

After my hair fest (or is that a hairless-ness fest?) I went to Artist and Craftsman and bought a photo emulsion spreader for my silkscreens... I'm excited about making prints again... I"m not an expert in it by any means but it's fun and a bit therapeutic.

I've also contacted Ative-Space about renting space to set up a studio. I think it's about time... I'm feeling pretty good.

Mii the Wii

I took a few pictures of Mii this morning...
I think I look kind of cute!

This is my Wii workout wear. I like the yoga pants...

Here I am staring at my Momma... she's sleeping because she hasn't checked in with the Wii for almost a week.

On April Fools day the balance board told me it wasn't working... it's was playing a joke on me.

Okay, onto other things... It's been busy at work which is good... there was a bit of a dry spell there which I think was a combination of slow work, but also people not wanting to give me work for some stupid reasons.... there was an assumption that I was getting special treatment by certain people at work... I don't quite get it... I come, I do my job, I'm on time, I don't make too many mistakes and there's pretty much nothing I won't do if it needs to be done. I'm a good employee. People need to worry about bigger things other than weather or not I'm getting a bigger anniversary bouquet (they all cost the same amount... bigger, cheaper flowers means bigger bouquet).

Now if I was goofing off and not getting my work done - then they could complain.

Last night I went to first Thursday and got home in time to watch Survivor... I met Esther from Gallery4Culture... she's the curator and will be working with me on my show in July. I need to get working on things...

I'll try to post some pictures about the shows I saw... also there's a review of the Centennial in the Times today... you should read it.

My dentist is the wealthiest man in Wedgwood!

It turns out that I sheared off a cusp on my tooth (I think that's what it's called) and I have to have another crown put on. I was also given a referral to the root canal people just in case they need to do another one... I am crossing my fingers that they won't because I will have reached my limit in my dental insurance.

Oh the dilemma. I am just hoping everything goes well and I won't have to go see Dr. Rivero again (the endodontist).

Tonight I am all set for first Thursday - I have to wear sensible shoes but also have to look cute in case I run into any of my single male friends...

WOOT WOOT WOOT! I just checked my bank account and my income tax refund was deposited.

Yay! It' s not a ton but it will help defray the cost of getting my legs waxed this weekend. Have I told you how much I'm jazzed about leg waxing? The hair on my legs has taken forever to grow back in... I was almost unsure as to weather or not I needed to go back this weekend (but after a quick consultation with Shelby - my woman of waxing I have determined that it is time...). I am going to have beautiful legs this summer. Now if I could just get rid of the veins.

Yesterday I had a rough day food wise... it was all about the sugar and salad. If you are a friend of mine on facebook you might have seen my status with read as follows. Jennifer Towner is dentist, chocolate cake, chocolate cake, licorice, taco salad, snickers bar, snickers bar, cycle.

I could have added to that minestrone soup, nachos, nachos, nachos, pita crackers, hummus, fruitloops... but that seems a little excessive. Maybe I'll get back on task today.

Here's a chocolate muffin I ate before the St. Patty's day dash...

This is me running in the St. Patty's Day Dash....

I'm thinking it may be time for a new running outfit.

Gotta run! (get it??? Gotta run?)
