bomb in a birdcage

Have you ever had
one of those days
when everything
should be perfect
but nothing is

Just because I'm surviving, doesn't mean it's okay.

I want to start something new. Revolutionary. Step out of the ordinary. I've been living a day to day, monotonous, repetitious life. School. Volleyball. Homework. Sleep. Rinse. Repeat.

Any ideas on how to spice up someone's normal, average life? I feel boring and I am not a boring girl. Time to get crazy! I'll inform you of any progress that may take place.

p.s. highlight of my day? noticing a man at church's pant leg was tucked into the back of one of his shoes.

I’m a Judge Judy

When you come through my Scooter’s drive thru, I judge you based on the coffee or drink you order. For example:

Large Carmelicious, Skinny, Sugar-free, but with whipped cream
     This obviously means you’re trying to be healthy about going through the drive thru at a coffeehouse, so you get it sugar free and with skim milk…but you ruin it with adding whipped cream, because it’s actually worse than if you left it regular with no whipped cream. So you are a bad dieter.

Brewed coffee with a ton of cream and 10 splenda packets
     Ok really? Just get a latte. This is a poor man’s latte because you are just adding stuff to coffee and the creamer is bad for you. Get a latte with steamed milk and espresso. It’s better. Stop being cheap.

Small mocha smoothie, skinny…and a muffin.
     The small mocha smoothie means you don’t want a lot of smoothie because they are not too good for you. Well guess what? The muffin is worse for you than anything else here. It’s got enough calories for an entire meal. Get a large mocha smoothie that’s skinny and skip the muffin. You’ll be better off. And skip the whipped cream.

I could go on…but you don’t want to be bored I’m sure. Just wanting you to know that every time you go through a drive thru, you’re probably being judged…so watch what you order :)

Saturday night :)

Well, I've been productive today. Or not productive. Depends on what you would consider productive. If you see movie watching, eating, more movie watching, and then more eating productive...then I get an A+ for the day.

But for my own sanity and wellbeing, I'm pretty sure my day of vegging out was mentally productive. Sometimes a person just needs a day of nothing in order to cope with busyness of the previous week…or weeks :) I would say I was successful today.

I was convincing a friend to buy a Snuggie today, and I have for you my top ten reasons to buy a Snuggie:

10. No hand restrictions
9. You can be warm and still play board games, text, read, surf the internet, or hit people
8. Economic, $14.99 at Target for a multifaceted blanket
7. Everybody’s getting one
6. The commercial is superb and deserves to make money…did you see them drinking hot chocolate?
5. It is able to be worn as a robe if you put it on backwards
4. The robe could double as a long fuzzy trench coat when worn in public
3. Great for wearing at family events
2. If you get an animal print, you can hide easily in the jungle, or have a Halloween costume
1. Washable, in case of any accidents that may occur

These aren’t in any particular order, but it definitely justifies my spending $15 on a blanket. And hopefully it convinces you to purchase one as well.

false alarm!

Well, this is my blog. That's not false. The false is about the hair. Katie's fuzz is falling out, so it's time for a shave! Only another month of bald, and I can see these locks grow. No big deal...I realize that it's four weeks. I can stick that out, cake. I was excited to grow it out, but I know that I am doing this for Katie and not for anyone else, so I'll definitely stick this one out :) I look good bald anyway.

The time has come to grow back some hair. Katie is finally getting the hair back and I'm so excited! Since she has hair growing and I'm growing mine back, this blogging about baldness has no point. Bald won't exist much longer.

However, I decided to just redo the entire blog and just make it my own personal blog. I'll fill the space with the wonderfully awkward events life may throw, the random thoughts I have, and the countless hours of homework procrastination this blog will allow.

Prepare for madness.
