By this time next week, I'll be hanging out on my brother's couch in Tulsa. I can't wait. Sean's couch is one of my favorite places in the world. My vacation starts on Friday. Friday night I'm going to my sister's house because I ALWAYS go to my brother's house when I get some time off, and I think it hurts her feelings. But, Sean's house has digital cable and a 56' TV. Leslie doesn't even get local channels. Sometimes I think it's sad & pathetic that my life revolves around TV. An article in Men's Health a couple of years ago said that your brain relates to spending time with your TV "friends" the same as it does to real live people. I'm cool with that. Your TV "friends" aren't going to stab you in the back or hurt your feelings or blow you off. They're always there. Anyway, back to the vacation. On Monday I'm going back to Sean's to shoot off fireworks. On Tuesday, we're going to Discoveryland to see Oklahoma! I LOVE Oklahoma!, well musicals in general, but Oklahoma! the second most(Grease is the first). Other than that, I have no plans. I'm so excited!

I got a new(to me) car last night. It's a 2001 Mercury Sable. It's really nice. It has a cd player & cruise control & power windows and locks & buttons on the key chain & tinted windows. I'm so happy about the car. I love it!

Have a nice day!

I love recipes, cookbooks, anything that has to do with cooking. I could spend $1 million in Williams-Sonoma easily. When I was in high school I even made up my own cookie recipe and won several awards for it. I also like reading cookbooks, which some people think is weird. My favorite cookbook is the one my aunt Terri made me. It's full of secret family recipes that I'm not allowed to give to anyone. :)

A friend of mine brought me a new recipe today. It's for Asparagus Casserole. It looks really easy and yummy. I'll have to wait until next weekend until I have a chance to cook it though. Here it is if you're interested:

Asparagus Casserole

2 cups cracker crumbs
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 (15 oz.) can asparagus tips
1 (10 oz.) can mushroom soup
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine, melted

Preheat the gas oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cracker crumbs and cheese in a medium bowl and mix well. Drain the asparagus, reserving 1 cup liquid. Combine the reserved liquid and the soup in a large bowl and mix well.

Layer 1/3 of the cracker mixture, 1/2 of the asparagus and 1/2 of the soup mixture in a greased 2-quart casserole. Repeat the layers and top with the remaining cracker mixture. Drizzle with margarine. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Doesn't it sound good?

My Weekend

This Friday I went Tulsa & played with my neice Sydney while my brother went to work. She's such a funny kid. She just turned 2 in March & she talks a lot, but I can only understand about 2/3 of what she's saying. We played out side most of the afternoon and I got some much needed color.
On Saturday we all went to Bartlesville for Paige's first birthday party. It was about as exciting as a first birthday party can be. We went early because Sean & Karissa were getting Sydney her first dog at the SPCA. She's a really pretty lab mix puppy. Her name is Daisy and she's tan with chocolate spots, with one blue and one green eye.
I came home late last night, watched My Best Friend's Wedding, and here I am at work today. I actually have to do work today because my boss is coming back from her 2 week vacation tomorrow, and I have to make it look like I did something while she was gone. :)

Happy Father's Day!

To my daddy, and all the dad's that read this.

Blog Grammar

There seem to be some people out there that think they are a little more internet savvy than they actually are. They try to use the shortened versions of words because they're lazy or to give the appearance of cool or whatever. To those people, here's a little lesson on hiding your true idiocy. Pic=1 picture. Pix=2 or more pictures. If you have one picture labeled pix, your computer has encountered an id10t error. To correct this, you should go out and buy yourself a brain.

Word of the day: idiocy - 'i-dE-&-sE (n) plural -cies
1 usually offensive : extreme mental retardation
2 : something notably stupid or foolish

My Favorite Game on the Internet

I love eBay. It's by far my favorite game on the internet. It's always so fun to win, even if what I'm bidding on is total crap, and believe me I have bought quite a bit of crap. I've been playing most of the day today. I used to impulse bid on a lot of stuff, but I've gotten better at putting it in my watch items. That way I don't actually spend money, but if I really want it, I can go back to it.
Today I bought some soap making stuff. If you've never made soap, you should try it. It's one of my less expensive, and most relaxing hobbies. You can get a 2lb. bag of soap cubes at Hobby Lobby for $5.99-$6.49 depending on the kind, and molds that make 4-6 bars per tray in the $2.47 range. It's so easy to do too. You just melt the cubes in the microwave, add some fragrance & some color, and pour it into the mold. 45 min-1 hr later, you have soap. The clean up is really easy too since it's soap. If it hardens on anything you don't want it to, you just have to run water on it & it goes away.
Anyway, back to what I bought on eBay. I got a 1 lb brick of soap for $2.75, which ended up costing me $7.05 with shipping, go figure. I also got 2 soap molds; one is peace signs and smiley faces and the other is dragonflies and ladybugs. They were a little more expensive than the ones at Hobby Lobby, but I was at Hobby Lobby today and they didn't have them. I did get a mold at Hobby Lobby that has shoes and purses.
I can't wait to get home tonight. I'm so going to make soap after I cut Mom's hair, unless I can get out of cutting Mom's hair; then I'll just make soap.

Movie recommendation of the day: Dick starring Kirsten Dunst & that girl that played Jen on Dawson's Creek. It's a hilarious satire on the whole Watergate scandal.

Boredom has set in.

That means it's time for those totally useless time consuming blog quizzes!

Grey matter, you got some located in that head of yours, and it seems to be working well for you!You form your own opinions not by following the pack, but by gathering the facts before you open your mouth. Odds are you don't watch much TV and effort to educate yourself on many different, relevant topics. The unfortunate side affect of having a brain is you can be apathetic or show anger to people that seem to have dropped theirs. Patience grasshopper, be the better person, not the bitter one;)

Okay, that's pretty close to the truth, except that I'm addicted to TV.

A little bit nice, a little bit naughty. I'm kind, but I show people who's boss around here. Sweet.

I took the How interesting are you? quiz, but I gotta say, I didn't like the results.
Have a nice day!

I went shopping!

I got this top and a bra to go with it. I really like the bra. It came with 2 sets of detachable straps: those clear plastic kind and straps that match the rest of the bra; or you can go without straps. The clear plastic straps are cool, but they stick to your skin and can be a little uncomforable.
I also got a new pair of sandals from payless and some shortpants from The Avenue. God, I love shopping. It all comes together really well and makes a cute new outfit. A couple of weeks ago, I went shopping and bought this skirt. I'm thinking the new top will look cute with the skirt, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you think.

Jackson jury enters 2nd week of deliberations...

...and I'm bored with it. I don't care if they find him guilty or not, I'm just ready for a verdict so that it's over with. It seems like this has been going on forever. It was a little interesting the first few days of the trial, then the day Michael's bail was almost revoked and he showed up in his pajamas. Waiting for Michael, now that was quality television. I'm sick of listening to Nancy Grace's opinion, which is completely irrelevant in my opinion. I'm ready to get back to real news on my news channels.

Non-smokers can be so annoying!

There's a message board that I post at regularly. There's a new kid over there that's like 20 years old spewing his ignorance about how smokers should smoke at home or quit. He said, and I quote, "It's not that hard." Anyone who has never been addicted to cigarettes has no clue as to how hard it is to quit smoking. It's bad. I've tried. The last time I tried, I decided that I would rather smoke than be a bitch to everyone around me. I didn't like the way being a bitch made me feel way worse than I didn't like the way smoking made me feel.
