Web Site Story

This combines my love of musicals AND the interweb. Thanks College Humor.

Using Google Earth for the opening credits?? GENIUS. Dissing E-vite for having to click through? Awesome. I think college humor has finally outdone itself. =)

Houses Part DOS

First of all - something completely unrelated, yet hilarious.

A helpful chart for sorting through the GOP sex scandals.

Now that we've had our laugh for the day, lets move along to houses. And big, fat, scary inspections. And Asian grad students who REALLY GET ON MY NERVES WHEN THEY LECTURE ABOUT SHIT WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW BECAUSE WE AREN'T IN MED SCHOOL OR EVEN IN AN UPPER LEVEL NURSING COURSE. THIS IS F-ING FUNDAMENTALS LADY.

Pant pant pant.

K. So... now we'll talk about the house.

The house that is about 50 years old...and the house that widdle Dani is TERRIFIED won't pass inspection... or will have something horribly wrong with it that the MORONIC sellers won't fix.


We'll see how it goes (it being on Thursday).

On another note, my MOMMY is coming to stay tomorrow night, which is fantastic. She only lives about 90 minutes away...but I don't see her enough. And I Lav her. A lot.

AND my college roommate is supposed to be in town this weekend! WHICH IS AWESOME AS WELL.


I'm awesome-d out now. On to reading about Pain Management.

Adulthood, and Houses

Well, we've officially put in an offer in on a house. I'm not going to say ANY more about the house than that, because we have no clue if we'll be laughed at or if they'll say "ok" and I just can't take the stress of it all already.

My mom is already reading up on how to rip out carpets (there are hardwoods throughout) and paint cabinets ... but I just am wondering how this whole endeavor will fit in with the working part-time and going to school.

We shall see. I KNOW that at least it will mean a lot of lonely yard work for M over the next month... at least the grass doesn't grow that fast in July ... right?



Shout out to Ann’s Daughter for reminding me that I heart ExplodingDog.com’s awesome, awesome, f-ing crazy comics. Here is an example - http://explodingdog.com/title/unstoppable.html - I LOVE ZOMBIES.

Also, how CUTE is Dooce’s new baby girl? I cannot WAIT until her post on labor and delivery…I’m sure that will be a hoot.

On another note…our team name at trivia the other night was “Today I used lube on a Tootsie Roll,” because, well…earlier that day I had used lube on a Tootsie Roll. For CLASS PEOPLE FOR CLASS. I had to insert it into a fake anus. As a pretend suppository. Yep. Just linger on that image for a while.

Ummm Last random note – MyPoints.com is awesome…for wasting time and getting free crap. They send me emails about random products and in return for “reading” them, I get points. These points translate to gift cards (supposedly). I’ll let you know next week if I actually get the gift card I ordered… I love the internet for wasting time!!

Hmmm…k. Off to bed, where I can express my randomness through dreams.

You say TomAto, I say TomAHto

Just wanted to show off my super sweet tomato plant, "Bob" - if you don't get the reference, please YouTube/Wikipedia "Bob the Tomato" (from VeggieTales).

Just a baby:
And now our 2 biggest tomatoes so far:

I heart gardens, and tomatoes!

House Hunting (Or, Being a Bad Friend)

SO, I've decided that a surefire way to make your relationship miserable is to house-hunt together. It's also a great way to distance yourself from all your friends. Maybe that's just me though. With school and trying to find a place within the next 30 days...ummm yeah. I'm not that stressed per say, I just feel worn out all the time. I'm sleeping a lot and I always feel tired. I just don't want to DO anything. I'd rather sit in front of the computer and look on zillow.com. And today looking at houses just wore me OUT - I came home and passed out for a bit on the bed before waking up to the sound of CRAZY-ASS wind. We had to pull our plants off the deck again, but not before the palm/corn plant fell over. =(


Anyways, we are looking for a widdle home for us and the Deac. And it's eye-opening to see how other people live/decorate. FASCINATING. People are weird. With weird things in their homes. And CATS. I think three of the houses we looked at had cats. One was sitting all slouched-like in the master bedroom... with a "Helllllllll No" expression on his face...

No worries cat. We didn't like that house anyway - too small!!!

Anyway, back to my SYTYCD countdown - just 45 more minutes!

Twilight and the Crazies

Ummmmm hi. Now, I love Twilight. Like, a lot. Like, I hadn't crushed that hard on anyone since 8th grade - especially never a literary character (I mean, I love you Mr. Darcy...but you were kind of a prick through most of Pride and Prejudice...even though Colin Firth made you immortal with that swimming-through-the-lake-at-Pemberly scene. But, I digress).

However. I realize that vampires aren't real, and that the Twilight series isn't real. And that I have an AWESOME husband in M and even though he isn't immortal and super strong and super OBSESSED with me... he is umm real.

That brings us to the CRAZY lady that has gone off her rocker. My friend K sent me this link and I had to share - http://www.women24.com/Women24/BooksAstrology/News/Article/0,,1-12-68_22747,00.html

And thirdly, no prince could love me so intensely like a vampire. Reading Breaking Dawn, I was hopelessly out of breath when Edward and Bella made love at intervals during the book. But it wasn't Bella that I saw in my head, it was me. It was me that gave birth to his perfect daughter and it was me that turned into a raging beauty after feeling his venom burn through my veins."

"I have often in my dreams seen myself single, without children, packing my backpack on a quest to find Forks ... In my dreams I feel the passion of our first kiss and the disappointment as he pulls away, afraid he will hurt me.

In my dreams I wake up on Isle Esme wrapped in feathers and bruised from our first night of love making. In my dreams I feel and see him for the first time truly as a vampire and I feel his body burning mine as we fall down on the floor of our new cottage. In my dreams I have never been loved so much, nor have I loved so much."



Lady, I was raised on Disney princesses too - and I do admit that it shaped me in more ways than one...but I think you need a therapist.

Queen - or How S was Right.

Ummm my best-friend-since-we-were-twelve S has always liked Queen. And I always thought she was a little off her rocker. I don't know WHY, but I think it has to do with the fact that she would scream the lyrics to "Bohemian Rhapsody" - that EVERYONE screams the lyrics to that song...including my Freshman college roommate. Anyways. I didn't know what the big deal was. The middle part of that song is odd. Seriously people.

However, it seems that I was ACTUALLY a Queen fan and didn't even know it. M played the video of "Don't Stop Me Know" on YouTube and I was like - "oh hey that is the song S and her bro were singing at the Piano bar...it's kinda cool. Who sings it?"

M almost killed me with the daggers shooting from his eyes. M then guided us on a Queen YouTube binge...and I found out that "We Will Rock You," "We Are the Champions," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "Another One Bites the Dust" are ALL QUEEN SONGS.

And my mind was blown.

I blame S for not telling me all this earlier - ok FORCING me to listen to her. Then we could have been rocking out to Queen for the last decade. =)

UMMM PS - Did you know that it's Don't Stop Me Now that's playing during the Jukebox scene from Shaun of the Dead? Best movie ever. Best scene ever...
