1. Put a beer on you-you always get wet.

2.Warm beer tastes awful.
One point to DICK

3.A really cold beer is satisfying.
One point to BEER

4.If after taking a swig of your favorite beer you find a hair
between your teeth, you may vomit.
One point to DICK

5. If you get home reeking of beer your boyfriend may get mad, make a scene, kick you out, etc. If you get home reeking of dick your boyfriend may get mad, kick you out, even leave you. There's definitely a point to be had here, depending on your point of view and personal circumstances. I'll just call it a DRAW for the time being.

6. Ten beers in one night and you can't drive home. Ten dicks in one night and you don't want to drive anywhere.

10. Too much beer and you'll think you see flying saucers. Too much
dick and you'll think you've seen God.

fun. One point to DICK

12. In most countries there's a tax on beer.
One point to DICK

13. If you have another beer the first one never gets pissed off.
One point to BEER

14. You can always be sure if you're the first one to open a bottle or a can. One point to BEER

17. You always know how much beer is going to cost
One point to BEER

18. Beer doesn't have a mother
One point to BEER

19. Beer never expects you to cook for it.
One point to BEER

20. No one ever calls you a slut if you have more than one beer.
One point to BEER

Final Score 12 BEER/ 7 DICK

That's it! The matter is settled, the clear winner is: BEER

PS: If you are a man and at this point feel angry, degraded or
discriminated against, just remember that Beer would experience none of those feelings, let alone express them, an extra point for BEER

3:04 am - oh bleh
Current mood: complacent
Category: Life

Just thought I'd give ya'll a heads up...
I am not very excited to report this news, but in less than a month... on November 22nd... (the day BEFORE Thanksgiving)... I'll be hanging out in the hospital, having my tonsils cut out of my throat! BOOOO!

that means, no turkey, no red cabbage salad, no home made apple pie, no fruit salad, probably no scalloped corn, and MAYBE some mashed potatos.
on the upside, lots of ice cream, pudding, applesause, mashed potatoes and jello.. well that's really all of the soft foods i like.

but hopefully this horrible ruining of my 3rd favorite holiday (my birthday/halloween, christmas, thanksgiving....) will mean i'll have energy to do something besides lay in my bed when i get home from work. i won't spend weekends sick and crying because i've used up EVERY ounce of my energy during the week at work doing my best to be a good therapist and then, in the end, spend the weekends without a social life and sick because my body gives out...

so that's what i've got for you.

oh. and i have the "athena" song stuck in my head. it's by the who, and horrible and it's fabulous at the same time. :)

bummer about the Twins today... but, it's a series so we have a shot for taking it still... :) i have hopes.
i didn't get to see it today because i was at work and we don't have tv (which usually i'm very greatful grateful for!) there's always tomorrow. GO TWINS.

so, on my google homepage, i have quote of the day show up ... somedays they're good, somedays they suck. i like todays.

What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.

10:55 pm - just some lyrics...

Ben Lee
Gamble Everything for Love

"Make a list of things you need, leave it empty
except for number one, write "love"
gamble everything...."

Lips of an Angel

"Its really good to hear your voice saying my  name
it sounds so sweet
coming from the lips of an angel..."

Teddy Geiger
For You I Will (Confidence)

"Forgive me if I stutter
from all the clutter in my head
cuz i could fall asleep in those eyes
like a waterbed
do i seem familiar, i've crossed you in hallways
a thousand times, no more camouflage
I want to be exposed, and not be afraid to fall..."

current mood: sleepy

9:52 pm - blah. greys, sickness, life. :) btw. boys, stop being cute!
so, last night Greys was on. how excited was i to see it?! SO EXCITED.

i BARELY got home before it started... i was at the doctor getting blood drawn and my throat and my ears tested...

no strep throat. AMAZINGLY. so many people at work (like 10%... literally) were positive for strep
a possible pink eye case
a puker
and a kid with poop explosions. (wow, great visual... sorry)

anyways. they did a mono test on me too but i won't know anything until next week.  i didn't have a very strong case of it in hs. i'm pretty sure it was one of the other viruses that mimic mono and not the true mono... which this could be as well... crap.

anyways, before i went to the doctor holly and Nic and I went to the tap for a few drinks.  damn these boys who work with me... stop being cute and utterly adorable. seriously. 

that's all i'm saying about that right now. ;)

i'm home, it's 10pm on a friday. alone. lame. but SO needed. it's been a long week of random back and forth from my work to my parents to my house. i'm in need of a GOOD sleep.

i got a CUTE shirt for going out with Steph in RF tomorrow night. I'm excited.

current mood: relaxed

ambam82 , do you think i'll be able to follow the pattern!?

5:43 pm - another grey's anatomy day!! :)

so i finally... FINALLY got the second half of mama's scarf started. lucky number 9... seriously. how ridiculous. but it seems to be going well, i even managed to knit 3 hearts while watching grey's anatomy season 2.

which brings me to ... grey's anatomy starts on thursday! THURSDAY!
how excited am i?
I will be am looking forward to it more than most of you can comprehend. how fabulous.

in other news-- i think i have determined that there is no way i can stay healthy- ever!

my rib popped out on wednesday or something and it was so painful on thursday i went to the doctor on friday morning (after sleeping at my parents house, it was fabulous, i was drugged into sleep by pizza, heating pads and comfortable pillows :) )
anyways, so after the chiro friday, i was light headed and my head hurt and my ear hurt and what not, so i went to the urgent care last night and there was no ear infection or strep so it was just from my back..

so i layed in bed all night and all day today and i've been watching Grey's. I. loves. it.

current mood: bouncy

7:47 pm - guess what?! guess what?!
i'm pretty sure ambam82 will be excited about this...  but... i just bought a new wet/dry curling iron/straightener all-in-one...

This is the best story EVER. I WIN in all contests:

pan to athena changing a 3 year old's diaper.  pull down the pants, pull down the underwear...

little boy:  " LOOK Ah-feena.... it's a PENIS!!!" (mind you, this is the 2nd time i've changed his diaper and he's pointed it out to me... ha.
me: (totally ignoring the penis comment...trying desperately not to laugh and not to talk about it...) -- "okay buddy, we're almost done... let me just hook this diaper and we'll get going to see mom..."
little boy: "now say mmmmmmmmmm tasty!  (pause) ah-feena, say mmmmmmmm tasty!!" (mind you. still refering to his PENIS!!!!)
me: (completely trying to avoid it totally, attempting not to laugh and looking at nic to save myself from feeling dirty!!!) "okay buddy, lets get outta here, wash our hands....."

seriously, who else can say that happens to them at work?!


side note: ambam82 check out my mood picture... my dad thought it would be funny to put a paper bag mask on my head. haha.

heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey (said in a "home girl" sort of way...)

so tomorrow i'm getting paid to sleep in and do whatever it is i feel necessary to do. probably grocery shop a little bit, maybe organize my shoes... probably sleep until noon or so...

after that... ya know, probably nothing.

tomorrow is my mommy's birthday. she's 51. wow, over a century old. ;) just wait until i'm that old, i'll be saying how young it is.

i got flowers this week-------  
so anyways... other than that. it's been a fun weekend... went out with Todd and Dan on Friday, but really ended up hanging out with their friend heather, who had a ROUGH night (boy drama... how do i always get stuck cleaning up other people's drama?!) anyways, after we got her to calm down and be okay, todd and i cuddled up and finally fell asleep around 5... and then tyler and casey came and woke us up around 8... and then we slept for a few more hours before dan called and needed a ride home... being the ladies man that he is... he was at the girls house... anyways... it was fun over all... and then saturday i went to dinner with Suzanne and Patt and their friend Jotham, it was fun sorta crazy to hang out with them so randomly, but -----
okay so i'm watching a movie and i don't remember what i was going to say because i just got caught up in the movie for like 20 minutes. haha.

okay, movie and bed.

6:32 pm - September 1st WHAT?!
i feel like i should be going back to school.
it's surreal that i'm not.

i haven't NOT gone back to school since i was 4. FOUR! I'll be 24 this fall. i've been in school for 20 years of my life. is it sad that i'm kinda sad i'm not going back? i miss the beginning of school-- new school supplies, new classes, new teachers, new friends. fun stuff like that... i'll survive. anyways, i think i'm going back next year :)

i had such a fun day at work for my first offical day of full time status. and........... my mommy and daddy sent me flowers... beautiful white daisies and pink roses. i jokingly asked our front desk person if they were for me.. and i was SHOCKED when she said yes... !!!

I feel so loved.

tonight holly and i are going out in mpls to meet up with dan and todd (i hope!) dan's "girlfriend??" is supposed to be there, but holly is cute, and i think they'd think each other were cute, so i'm going to attempt to get them to chat. good times.

alright, bye!

*** note *** the flowers that my emotion shows are the flowers from my baby, not my parents. but i still feel loved!!!  

current mood: loved

10:41 am - ehh, life.
good morning to you. bad morning to me. 

this week has been full of ups and downs, and seemingly even more up and down since it's that special week for me. how lucky! 

i'll give you the brief update because the details are boring.

i'm staying at my parents this week while they're on vacation. which means i'm already nervous because i hate when they're gone. it just stresses me out. i always get this sinking fear that something will happen to them when they're gone. 

monday my car went into the shop (thank goodness for grandpa who insists on checking on it every so often. i'd prefer just to let it rot...) so i was driving dad's big chevy silverado. fun for me. bad for traffic. i'm not used to it! so monday was okay in the driving department

monday i also let slip that i was probably going to be done here at Savannah's the end of August and go full time at my other job (PIE)... i'm very excited about it, but I stress out about quitting jobs and leaving and change and what not, so I, of course, have been battling a low grade migraine for 3 days... yuck.  but i officially quit last night and will be going full time at pie starting september 1st. i'm happy and sad.

went to the doctor monday night because of the random rash i have... and there's nothing they can do about it. and my doctor didn't believe me why i have it. random. oh and my doc still wants me to wear an air cast on my ankle, which i have veto'd. oh. and on top of all of that. an ear infection. since when do i get ear infections. since never actually. this is the first ear infection i have ever had. lame. 

tuesday the car guy called. my car could have blown up. mind you that's number 2 on my huge irrational fear list. (number one is a brain tumor.) the thing that holds my engine in my car was broken, and every time i started and put my car into drive / reverse it was falling down a bit more. scary! that and they fixed my air conditioner, replaced belts, changed my oil and cleaned out my radiator. oh and put new tires on it too. geez. 

and then today. this is the best part. i walked out to go to work, and my dad's truck had a flat tire. there are no spares for this truck. and i was in the middle of orono, by myself. and no one was answering the phone. so i had to call my parents on vacation (it was 6 am where they were) and figure out what to do. gma ended up coming to get me and borrowing her car for me.  i was late to work, and it was such drama. i was crying, i felt so helpless. i hate that! 

seriously, what drama. i'm hoping the rest of the week ends up being normal. i could really use some regularity in my life. 

i think i'm having chipotle for lunch. i need comfort food!

current mood: stressed

This was one of the best things that I forgot to add to the post before I posted!!!

11:28 pm - oh, a long weekend!
well lets see.... Friday after work I drove over and saw Wendy's new salon (for at least a little while until they open Salon Sierra).. and then I picked up Papa Murphy's pizza... and THEN, i went over to ambam82 + HUSBAND Joe's new place! It was so cute! I can't wait to see what it looks like after it's actually been lived in more than a week! :)

We shoved our face with pizza and then after a little indecisiveness on my part, I knit a squiddy!!  How freaking cute is he?! his name is Herby!  Well after the knitting extravaganza, Am and I fell asleep in her bed around 5!! Joe went to sleep in the guest room (on the floor! what a guy!)  at like 3 or so... but yeah, so i woke up around 10 probably and we watched cartoons for a while and then i drove home and showered and went to grandmas to help set up for the party.
during that adventure Todd called! he came home, what a fabulous surprise for me!!!
so i went over there and we hung out outside and drank some beer and they played yard games again (no pictures this time though, my camera was charging!! booo)... and so after that i came home and fell asleep!

sunday got up, went to gmas and set up more for the party, and then had the party, which was fun. katie and neil showed up. love them! :) and a bunch of other random peoples too... it was exciting... and afterwards, i came back here and lugged all the extras up and then practiced some knitting skills and ribbing stuff for the hat i'm making Ryan (i'm still SMITTEN!!!) per his request!!

today, worked with SLM and then went to the saints tonight. it was fabulous. we won! I got to see Josh on our way out too so that was exciting. we won too... :) yay

okay. that's about all the excitement from the weekend
