More, More!

So the first half our of trip was amazing. Right now we're sitting at the airport (with free internet from Google) waiting to go to Utah. Its kind of fun to have a split vacation because just when you think all the fun is over, bam...Part II.

Pictures to come.

P.S. I love Christmas, my family is awesome, and having Rob there made it even better.

Sleeping in, movies, yummy food, family, shopping. Am I missing anything?

Orders of business

1. Rob and I are both finished with school, thank heavens. Although, we both agreed that around finals time we are so efficient and productive, what a shame to give all that up for reading non-text books, napping, and drinking all the raspberry gingerale (or in Rob's case, Eggnog, and lots of it) that we can stand.

2. I have been busy at work with my little amateur jewelry making (with the addition of headbands) and I love it. If nursing doesn't work out I think I'll become a full-time headband-maker. (Pictures to come)

3. Hot & Spicy Cheez-Its are where its at. Seriously.

4. We have been invaded by fruit flies. I can't figure out why they won't leave. Everything has been bleached multiple times, there is no trash, and everything that we eat has now been moved to the refrigerator. Lately I spend a great deal of my day walking around with my Windex in one hand, pointed like a 9mm, and in the other, a paper towel to squash the little suckers while they squish around in the bubbly blue liquid of death. The body count is above 50 but I can't figure out where they keep coming from. Tips?

5. My GPS broke, Rob's XBOX broke, my phone charger broke, and our internet has been broken. Electronics aren't really our thing.

6. I got pulled over the other night for "rolling" through a stop sign. Apparently 1 mississippi isn't long enough to stop. $200. The facts: 21 year old female, college student, newly married (she knew this because of the two different last names on the license vs. insurance), 2 weeks before Christmas, rolling through a stop sign...the only explanation is that she is angry and bitter and MUST hate Christmas. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. Merry Christmas City of Pflugerille.

7. I did my Christmas shopping the other day and left the mall with lots of big bags in either hand with Christmas music in the background. It was so exciting.

8. I introduced my mom to Anthropology when she was visiting. Needless to say it resulted in a medley of unfinished sentences: "Oh my gosh did you see the..." "But look over at..." "Stop it, did you see..." "No, no, too, too cute, I mean..."
That's fairly accurate, don't ya think?

9. And finally, I'm so excited to go home and see everyone I can't even stand it.

The kind of morning we all wish for

I woke up the other day, and had the kind of morning that LITERALLY included ALL of my favorite things.

1. 2 whole hours to get ready before I had to leave
2. Carnation Instant breakfast
3. Having time to straighten my hair, while:
4. Listening to Lady Gaga
5. Then listening to Queen (air guitaring so hard I injured my arm)
6. Talking to Stephanie about listening to Lady Gaga, "Doesn't she make you want to crawl around and go bark at something" "Exactly!" (You're the only one who really understands me, ya Ginga Couga, you!)
7. Talking to Kristen about clothes, lady Gaga, and other various excitements. (It's like you were my roomie again for a brief 60 minutes)
8. Talking to Rob about my shoulder injury because I couldn't get enough of Freddy Mercury...and knowing he has a crazy wife but still managing to say, "yes, that is funny."
9. Laptop on my sink so I have instant access to...everything...while straightening hair
10. Painting my nails wintery (AKA Merry Midnight by OPI)
11. Wearing leggings with boots and not even feeling bad about it
12. Resiting the various oral hypoglycemic meds without even looking at my notes
(take THAT Glucophage!)
13. And finally, getting a letter from Ferry in the mail

I have no excuse for not being happy when all it takes are one of the above criteria.

Blogging PRN for venting/accusatory posts

If you're thinking about calling someone a name, you should always substitute it into this phrase: "Mayor of ____ville"

For example:
[After JOE** publicly used the phrase, "so there's that," followed by my so very cherished, "OH really?"]

you little theif!

Turns out, I'm not a thief.

king of thiefs
mayor of thiefville

Much more effective, see?

**This name has been changed to protect the Accused of acute embarrassment related to unoriginal phraseology

And, if you're name is Jalaine, you will think the above statement is really funny -OR- if you've spent more than 40 hours studying for a nursing exam
