The Days of Blah.


My neck feels like this right now. It's been this way since noon. I was sitting there, minding my own business... And then crrrrrrrrkk! It suddenly blasted into a knot of pain and suffering.

But that's ok. I have my texting buddy, Josh, to keep me occupied.

Song of the day---> Pokemon theme song

pirate p(ARRRRRR)ty.

I have been planning to spend a marvelous evening watching all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies as a bit of mental preparation for the fourth one being released on May 20th (GLEE!!!!!!) Anywho, I sent the invites, bought the food, plundered and pillaged... I mean, worked my hiney off, AND

It went a little something like this---->

Three types of rum, fresh tropical fruits...

Some (not quite as pirate-y) snacks...

Souvenir suede pouches filled with chocolate coins and a pirate chest to boot!

A ceiling FILLED with pirate pennants and black and red balloons...


The highlight of the party? My rum, coconut cake.




I even went so far as to decorate the innards with chocolate coins AND embellish the side with a cashew cross-n-bones.

The planning? It took my blood, sweat and tears. I spent an ENTIRE Friday decorating and chopping and baking and STUFF! But, it was soooooo worth it.

The turnout? Fairly dismal... Although, I'm keeping my chin up about it because it's just more proof that I'm going to be the coolest mum ever! (Next to my own mum.)

Song of the (yester)day--> Do I even need to say it?

I do?

Ok...

You asked for it!

Pirates of the Caribbean theme. :)

Already Packin'

I am so pumped to go HOME.

Home, where my thoughts escape, at home, where my music's playin'"

Homeward Bound- Paul Simon



Ok.... So this ISN'T my home...







But, I want it to be.

So, I'm already packing and it's just SO great realizing how much crap you have...

Anyways, I started this photo project a few weeks ago but, here it goes! I was trying to capture license plates from ALL the states. I'll just show you all the pretty ones though!

Record Breakers

video

So! The official news is that I woke up at 7:30 this morning, took my natural disasters test (91%!!!!), met with my natural disasters group, then waited and pondered until noon or so... Which is when 2 out of 3 roomies and I, made our way to a world record breaking dodgeball tournament!!

The original record was set by the University of Alberta with 1200 students.

UGH!! 1177... So close... Also, so much for school spirit! Despite not quite breaking any records, that's pretty flipping fantastic. :3

Song o' the athletic day- "Weeeeeeee Are the Champions"- Queen

My Favorite Natural Disaster :3


As a kid, besides the (apparently) MILLIONS of times I watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, I distinctly remember watching Twister very often. It just FASCINATES me!! Tickles m'fancy!


It's just, in my natural disasters class, we are split into groups and each group presents for twenty minutes on a specific disaster. We are the ONLY group with a tornado which makes me SOOOOO felicitous!! So, my mind is on 'nado's at the moment.


Yes. Yes, that IS New York and little Miss Liberty.

Songgggg!----> "Twistin' the Night Away"- Sam Cooke
