Loves & Loathes… Pesky vs….

29 Jan

Oh shoot. What did Jennifur Brandt (of the Pesky Meddling Girls) name her list? It was good & bad things… pesky… & SOMETHING! Jessica help me out!

Anywho I feel the need, as I often do to make a list. Oh how they do help me!

Most all of my favorite blogs make a regular of this type of thing & I really dig the idea. I feel the need today, but I think in the future it will find it’s home on another day..

nevertheless; my kisses & kiss offs list (title is under construction)

Kisses:

to boyfriend for coming into town for a surprise slumber party to knock me out of my girly funk. We both agreed; best. sleep. ever. Puzzleriffic to the max.

to my outfit today. pics to come later, but I feel majorly cute.

to the fact that it’s Friday. I have a babysitting gig which should allow me to get a lot of the scarf I’m knitting for boyfriend done, gives me extra cash, & then I get to go see my lover for more puzzleriffic times. wohooo!

to my twinsie! & to her Dad for buying a yummmyyy dinner last night. Also double kiss to twinsie because it sounds from twitter that she had a rough night. (kiss off to the cause of course! : )

Kiss offs:

to people who try to make me jealous by lying & exaggerating. #1: I am not impressed anyway. #2: you look desperate, as usual. #3: you simply annoy me. #4: I KNOW YOU’RE EXAGGERATING. Just STOP. I wish I could elaborate on this but I’m trying to calm down. YOU’RE ANNOUING & I OFTEN WANT TO SLAP YOU. ok. whew.

to people who state the obvious to me or tell me how to do something I do EVERYDAY. Back off. When did I become an idiot?

to the potential snow we’re about to have. I do NOT want to be slip sliding around or get stuck away from my baby. (I also want the kids to play outside tonight so I have less of a headache)

I couldn’t help myself!

26 Jan

Sooooo I just bought these shoes…

oh & these too.

But I have good reasons! The first pair, I HAVE to have because Carrie wears them in the SATC2 promos (hi, I guess I’m sort of fanatical about Carrie eh?!) ANDDDD #2, they match my birthday dress (yes I bought my birthday dress 3 months in advance). The second pair…. well… they were on sale. & they are RAINBOW GLITTER. Dude, c’mon. Had to. Just HAD to.

that’s all! Back to work I go!

Not so manic Monday

25 Jan

Well it’s a Monday. Nothing too special today. I think my body was going through withdrawals last night; sleep was not coming easy without my dear boy to snuggle up to. My body is officially used to my weekend routine & apparently it isn’t open to change. Anyway I ended up putting rollers into my hair during my non sleepy boredom. Luckily the bouncy curls made me happy throughout the day so it worked out.

Definitely channeled Carrie Bradshaw with my giant flower & curls (hey season 4!)

The full outfit shots were taken at my bff’s apt. I went to drop off Christmas presents (ok so I’m not the most timely person! blah) & it turned out I didn’t have her key on me (boooo!) but I turned the mishap around & got productive (I guess… 🙂

(I love to take pictures to show off my tattoo 🙂

Vest – forever ago… Goody’s?
shirt – Hanes 🙂
skirt – NY&Co.
Shoes – Goody’s
Purse – Kohl’s

The stars know it all!

Astrology has always acted as my crystal ball for this giant place we live in. I believe in it all so strongly. Sometimes it is just all to hard to fight it. I found this profile while surfing at work… I can’t even say how true it all is….

PISCES WOMAN

A Pisces female is full of womanly charms and at the very first glance, she will look like the girl every guy falls in love with. She looks totally vulnerable, very different from the modern, liberated girl of today. Almost every guy feels like taking her in his arms and protecting her from the big bad world. She is one of those women who stand behind their husbands and support them in every way they can. A Piscean female will never try to dominate her husband. Rather she will like it if you do the usual gallant gestures, like holding the door for her.

She wants her man to love her, protect her and take good care of her. She will lean on him completely, showing full confidence in his strength and abilities. This acts like a solid ego boost to almost every male. She will always be a patient listener, with whom you can share all your secret dreams, desires and hopes. She doesn’t have a single masculine streak in her and if you are looking for the typical womanly traits, then Pisces girl is the one for you. She is totally feminine, in all the seasons and at all the places.

She can sit adoringly with you, admiring your each and every quality. The warmth of her personality makes most the men relax in an instant and bask in the glory of their manhood. Enough for the initial falling in and courtship period! Now comes the time of marriage and life after that. A Pisces woman nags just like all the other women and she has a bad temper too. In her fury, she can turn bitterly sarcastic. The consolation here is that she is gentle for more periods, than she is nudging and prodding.

Infact, majority of the time, she will be yielding, wistful and all womanly. Her scathing tongue will become loose once in a while only. In case you have found the opposite characteristics profile in a Piscean woman, chances are that she suffered extremely harsh treatment at a very young age and the bitterness will be a result of that trauma only. She has certain subtleness around her and may also become a little deceptive at times. She is not mean; it’s just that she feels like keeping certain things to herself only.

Then, the deceptiveness also helps her in keeping you interested in her. A Pisces female is very sentimental and even slightly harsh words can cause her to cry hours at end. You can easily imagine what will happen when you really hurt her feelings. She may imagine herself to totally worthless and incapable of the fighting spirit to survive. Then, you will have to assure her that she is appreciated for her great wisdom, empathy and vast understanding. You know that whatever you are saying is true; it’s just a matter of convincing her about the same.

You will have to remove her doubts about herself or she may become too closeted in self-defense. A Pisces girl is very shy, emotional and vulnerable. To protect her susceptibility, she often wears a cloak of wittiness, frigidity and independence. She is afraid of exposing her true self, lest people hurt her in the process. She is a true romantic and secretly yearns for a person who will love her, cuddle her, hug her and make her feel loved and protected. As a mother she may be too permissive and find it difficult to teach discipline.

You may have to teach her the fine balance between controlling and pampering. A Piscean female will sacrifice her own dreams to realize the hopes of her children. She may not be good with finances, but will manage to save money if the situation so desires. She will remember the smallest incidents of your life, so you better remember her birthday and your anniversary. She may become dreamy once in a while, but then she will always be there with you, without being asked to. She is someone you will want to take care of, throughout your life!

I’ve been all over the map today

24 Jan

Things have been up down & all around today.

Spent the weekend with the loveliest boy in the world. As I do all my weekends. Sadly I had to cut this weekend short, as my grandma had so graciously offered to wax my kitchen cupboards this weekend (I would never think to do such a thing). See the thing is, I drive my grandma’s car (it’s a sweet ride actually, 2003 BRIGHTassyellow chevy cavalier appropriately named “Ducky”). My car Marco had a quick and terribly unfortunate death around this time last year & my grandma came to my heroic rescue. Sort of. IT’s a long weird family story, but basically This car is my ball & chain, & I’m SUPPOSED to drive TO and FROM work ONLY. Well…. I’m sorry, the love of my life lives 2 hours away, & 5 days is my max on separation. I couldn’t bear to sit around Chattanooga doing nothing when I could be snuggled up in my happy place (& ohhhh man is it warm there)

ANYWAY! I’m getting sidetracked. Generally I stay with loverboy until Monday a.m. Like 5a.m. it’s rough. but totally worth the extra night of death grip sleeping. Bonus: I am wide awake for work.

This weekend I had to cut it short (Sunday a.m. short D:) to meet my grandma. Well about an hour into my drive, I find out she’s not coming. WTF?! grrr. Well Josh had to work anyway, & I haven’t spent a full day in my new apartment yet (even though I’ve lived here for THREEE weeks. yikes) Well then I get home to find out I left my glasses in ATL. EEEK! Four eyes are better eyes! I’m dreading the week long headache (that I’m starting off smoothly with this here blog post. way to go me)

I try to unpack my apt boxes a little. Decide I need some SATC playing to get me through. One hour of my life gone to my DVD player. Or should I say radio? Because all it does it play the radio out of 2/5 of it’s speakers. Yeah, that was a blast.

Then my computer loses internet. FOR THE WHOLE DAY! It wouldnt recognize ANY wireless networks. “WTF?!!?” you’re saying? Yeah, me too. Loudly. Well after hours & hours & pleas put out to the universe, it turned out to be a button. Yes. A fucking button. Who woulda thunk it eh?!

Well then I settle down ready to hit my google reader when SHOCK! I do not have sound! Well see, my computer is slower than a school zone when you’re late for work, & I thought it brilliant to uninstall some unnecessary programs. Turns out, (yes you’ve already guessed it!) I removed my sound driver. WAY TO GO JAZ!

Now, I am on 79% complete of some sketch download that may or hopefully MAY work. Fingers crossed!

Having the day in my natural habitat, I was able to go ahead & pick out my outfit for tomorrow. This is a rare luxury. Normally I am too tired or too distracted by my new webcam to function with any other chore. I’m pretty excited about it. It’s good motivation to make it part of my routine. Force in the extra time with my evening tea or something. Fingers crossed on that one too.

Whew. There’s a welcome back to my rambling!

Good night lovely faces!

ok ok I’m back for real now

20 Jan

but this isn’t about what I’m wearing anymore. That was so much pressure. Not to mention the hassle of to-dos (take picture of outfit, upload outfit, write something witty about outfit, so on & so on) not to mention I previously only had internet at work.

Alas, lately I’ve been training to run another 5K, moved into a one bedroom apartment, I spend my weekends in Atlanta where the love of my life is living now (yay for no more plane rides to loversville!), & I’ve been really introspective as well as terribly concerned with everything around me.

That’s what I’ll be talking about.

Wish me luck!
