Not it!

I was tagged by NMOTB a while ago, but didn't know it! Ooops! So, my vacation post will have to wait a little longer so I can tend to this unfinished business.

I guess I'm just supposed to tell 7 things about me....Hmmmmm

1. I tend to be a little sarcastic. I know, I know. It's extremely difficult to believe, but yes, it's true. However, it has gotten me into a bit of trouble here and there, so I hope to tame it a bit. Sometimes though, I just can't help myself and the words just pour out of my mouth like water from a spigot.

2. I am only 5'-3.75" tall. Although my doctors chart it as 5'-4". Shhhhhh!

3. I am starting to not like my job, so I'm looking for a new one.

4. I am an "enhanced" blonde.

5. I have a hard time thinking of 7 things about myself to tell you.

6. Oh! I LOVE the ocean!!! I wish I was there right now. The best time to be there is at night. Just on the beach though, not necessarily in the water.

7. For some reason, I can never achieve above a 3.6 total GPA. Should I go back for another degree to try again?!?!

I'm not going to tag anyone, b/c no one would probably do it and I really don't want to have to think of people to tag. :D

Back to Reality :(

Yes, I'm back. I have lots of pics to sort through and put on here, but for now, here are a couple from my flight there. Hope you like 'em!

I think the other people on the plane thought I was a little weird, but hey, how many times do you get to take pictures of clouds from above them?!

Leavin' on a Jet Plane

That's right folks! Tomorrow evening I will be taking flight to visit my sister and nephew.

It's going to be so much fun! We're even going to go to the beach for a day! I haven't been to one in 7 years when Zen and I went to Ocean City, MD, so it will be great to see the ocean again.

Becoming a Real American

As most of you know, I had some difficulties with a small organ of mine recently, so I had it removed. After which, my surgeon said, and I quote: "You can eat whatever you like now!"

That was music to my least until this past Friday.

I got up and thought, "Hmmm. My tummy just doesn't feel right today." As the day progressed, I felt worse and worse, so I went home sick from work.

This icky feeling led me to spend the whole weekend in bed. (and I can think of far better things to do in bed than be read a good book!) **[Get your minds outta the gutter!!! My ma reads this ya know!]**

So, since my surgeon said what he said, I can only do what any other red-blooded American would do.

I'm gonna sue!

Yes, that's right! When something you're promised will not happen happens, then you have NO other choice than to sue the pants off the person who made the promise. It's the American way and who am I to buck the system?!

I guess next time I shouldn't let this guy do the operation, eh?

The End

Tonight was the final episode of Gilmore Girls.

I am so sad this show has ended. I had NO time to prepare for it. There were rumors that it might possibly end this season, but nothing definite.

Then, out of the blue...BAM! I read on that it was ending tonight! I've watched this show starting about mid-1st season, and every year it got better and better.

All the wit and banter between Lorelai and Rory and everyone else in Stars Hollow just amazed me. I think I got most of it, but then I watch a rerun and I pick up something I missed the first time. It reminds me of a feminine Arrested Development.

So, if anyone wants to get me all 7 seasons on DVD, then what kind of person would I be if I turned down a gift?!

Please pass the tissues...*sniff, sniff*

Michel: People are particularly stupid today. I can't talk to any more of them.

One Fine Day

Skii, Izzy and I went to the Franklin Conservatory last weekend and here are the pictures that I took with my phone! I can't believe how well they came out!

First off, the plant and animal life: If you look close enough, you may see a butterfly in some of the pics!

Now onto the glass art works of Dale Chihuly: Just beautiful!

Today Is National Mental Health day!
You can do your bit by remembering to create a post for an unstable friend.
(Well... my job's done!)

Ok....Dirty Dancing update!!!!

The evening started with my friends and I meeting at Fridays for dinner. My one friend and I got there around 5:30pm with the rest following around 6pm. So, 1 1/2 hours later, we were finally cashed out by our waitress stricken with "Snail Disease." (Mind you the movie started at 7:30pm)

So, we race over to the movie theatre and are told that the movie is sold out so there is single seating only. With the great forethought of my friend, we got our tickets online. We get inside the theatre and a pre-show is playing. It's all about how they made DD and all the good stuff that you normally see in a "Behind the Scenes" documentary. We find that our seats were awaiting us in the very front row. We could feel the sweat coming off Patrick Swayze as he danced across the screen!

A few minutes later, a movie theatre employee turns the sound off and tells us that they would be stopping this little show in order to start the movie. You wouldn't believe the number of people who raised a stink about this travesty! Over half the theatre said that they had been there since 7:10pm and had never seen this even though the movie theatre employee stated that what we were seeing was the loop and this was the second time playing.

After all was said and done, the movie theatre person said that they would be showing the pre-show in it's entirety after the movie. So, Johnny and Baby go dancing to the fade out and the credits start to roll. We stay until the credits finish and the screen goes black. We turn around and find about EIGHT people waiting to see the pre-show. EIGHT! Not quite the number of rioters from the beginning.

My friend and I left without seeing the pre-show since I had a severe headache from all the noise the rioters made and from keeping my head perpendicular to the rest of body for about 2 hours. My friend had a sick hubby at home. Overall, the experience was great and I would pay another $10 to see it in the theatres again and again and again and again!!!
