I kind of want to punch myself in the face.

So. It seems that every sunday, all the forces of nature combine to make sure I don't go to church.

I know, I know, I need to stop blaming things outside of myself for my own mistakes. I'm full of excuses, but seriously! Today, for example. In pressing the snooze button, I am assuming I must have reset my clock to be an hour earlier than the actual time. When I woke up, and started getting ready, I noticed that the clock on my computer indicated that I was not going to even make it to RS, which is at the end of the block. I continued to get ready, in the vain hope that my computer was wrong (note to self - computer clocks are never wrong.) So, as I was ready to head out the door, my roomate walked in.

"I missed RS, didn't I?" I asked glumly.

"Yea, you did."

"I want to punch myself in the face."

That is all.


Quotes of the day.

"If cancer were riding a bike, I would poke a stick through the tire spokes and laugh as it hit the ground. Even if cancer were a puppy, I would punch it the face."

(during my appointment a few weeks ago with my Doc)
Me:"I didn't expect to be okay. I didn't expect to be able to cope, but I am. I feel strong enough to actually be of use to my mom, and to help her and everyone else through this."
Dr. C: "There's something embedded deep in human nature, that allows us to rise to the occasion. You are healthy now, and that's why you are able to rise to the occasion!"
Me:"That's kind of awesome."


I am sooo Cesar Milan.

I'm kind of... a dog whisperer. I taught Ozzie how to stop barking. Thank you, thank you. (BOWS.) Be proud. However, I don't know if it will still work tomorrow. We shall see.



Why do my-favorite-book-turned-movie trailers give me the chills? I don't know.... I'll get back to you on that. I just ... love them.


Twilight Trailer-

Things I liked-
1) Eeery mood music. Very spooky.
2) The whole first minute. Pretty kosher. I liked how the 'fade to black' effect was used to make it feel like we are looking in, as an observer, blinking our eyes.
3) The 'Edward catching the apple in his hands, like the book cover!' thing. Cute! [Edward: Want some forbidden fruit? Me: YES.]

Things that made me giggle -
1)How monotone they were. "We are in love. Monotonously."
2)Edward's face when he is in the tree, explaining how his family is different. He looks as though he is pooping his pants.
3)Edward being a spider-monkey-vamp crawling up the tree.

Half-Blood Prince Trailer-


quote of the day.

At work...

(I work at a call center. We are those chipper people who call during dinner and ask if you'd like to take a survey. heh.)

[Me]: "Bla bla bla bla, thanks for your response. Next question is...."

[Nasty Backwoods Creeper Man]: "Ah am done with yerr survey. It's tahme for me to ask the questions. What is your name and have you ever been to a nudist colony?"



Pushing Daisies and retardation.

Item 1- I am currently obsessed with the show "Pushing Daisies" on ABC. It's quite fantastical, hilarious and fun, and I've been watching the seasons of it ABC.com. I love the internet. Also, Ned the piemaker is a cutie patootie. Who doesn't love a guy in an apron?

"Want some pie?" YES.

Item 2- "Talking during a picture can give the illusion of mental retardation." -Kristin.
Very true, and the blog she posted on her childhood awkwardness has inspired me to make one of my own.

I don't think we have any pictures of me actually wearing my headgear, (shudder), but I still think you should prepare yourself for the raw, gritty photos of the orthodontic catastrophe that led to the necessity of my headgear that will be in my next blog. Be afraid.
