I skipped Danielle's baby shower on Sunday, an just laid around at by brother's. Monday was Brion's birthday. We cooked out and drank beers. It was good times. How was your weekend?

Welcome, Modern Princess!

I have a new renter. Here's what I want you to do. I want you to go visit her, then I want you to go visit her renter, then I want you to go visit their renter, and so on and so forth until you get to someone who doesn't have a renter, or it sends you back to somewhere you've already been. You don't have to, but it would also be really nice if you leave her a comment that says you got there from here, then leave her renter a comment that says you got there from her, ya know what I'm getting at. I got this idea from my last renter, Tabz. It's a good idea. Spread some blog love.

Taylor won!

The American Idol finale last night was fantastic. So many big name singers came out to perform: Carrie Underwood, Clay Aiken, Meatloaf, Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, Prince, Dion Warwick. It was spectacular. I'm so glad Taylor won. Something about Katharine has been rubbing me the wrong way the last couple of weeks.

My favorite finale moment:

Say hello before she says goodbye

Today is Tabz last day as my renter, well, she's got about 23 hours left, so technically, I guess tomorrow is her last day, but still. She's been a great tenant. I'm going to add her to my blog roll so we can keep up with her. But that's no reason not to go visit her today. Please.

Finally, someone picked me!

I've been having a hard time finding someone who will rent their blog to me. I don't get it. I think I'm good enough, smart enough, funny enough, and dog-gone-it people like me. Anyway, I found a taker. Gita Manas at Home Burrough was nice enough to rent her blog to me. Thank you Gita Manas.

Momma Drama

There was an argument. It started because I didn't do something she wanted me to, and she told me through clenched teeth that she was going to kick my ass. Now, I know there's no way in hell she's capable of kicking my ass, but that's not the point. I told her it wasn't okay for her to tell me she's going to kick my ass, she told me I didn't get it, I told her she didn't get it, I told her I wasn't 16, she told be I act like I'm 16, I told her I didn't, she said I don't take responsibility for anything, I left, went for a drive. When I got home she asked me where I went, I told her for a drive, she told me, don't do that, you scared me. ???WTF???

The boredom is killing me

I hate having to work in between semesters. It's Monday of the 2nd of 3 weeks I have to work 8-5. I'm a creature of habit. I enjoy my routine. Any disruption to my routine throws every aspect of my life for a major loop. On top of that, the campus is deserted. There is nothing for me to do, only a few people to interact with. I feel like these weeks are a black hole of boredom. Any ideas on how I can entertain myself?

Go visit my renter and participate in Click & Comment Monday. Just do it. It'll be fun.

I have a new renter

Please visit Stupid People Shouldn't Breed. She seems pretty cool. We work similar shifts, and she seems to dislike mornings as much as I do. Now GO! And don't forget to tell her I sent you.

That's Knit-tastic!

I've started a new blog. It's called That's Knit-tastic! It's where I'm going to post all of my knitting related stuff. Again, if you're a knitter in the Midwest City area, or are interested in learning to knit, let me know. I'm trying to start a knitting circle.

P.S. I fixed the problem I was having with my archives. I really like the way it looks now. Also, don't get attached to this template. I'm working on a new one.

Zoo pictures

I mentioned in the audio post below that I had pictures of the bears in a compromising position. Here are the pictures. The Tulsa zoo is home to many amorous animals. I can honestly say that the last several times I've been there, one pair of animals or another has been getting it on.

I have pictures. I'll post them as soon as I get a chance.

My archives are so pissing me off. I don't like the way it looks. I've spent hours today trying to fix it to no avail. Stupid blogger. Stupid html. Stupid internet. I hate it all right now!

Check out my new renter

This is pretty close to what the huge moth from last night looked like. Amazing, isn't it?


I have a new renter, he's a young British dude. He has an interesting take on some current issues hounding Americans. You should give him a little click. You know you want to.

I talked to my library class instructor today. She told me as long as I take the final, I'll get an A in the class. I saved my 4.0, and I didn't even have to apply myself. I need to go to a different school. This one doesn't have very high expectations for it's students. I haven't been really challenged by a single class I've taken here, but what should I expect from a community college, really?

My whole body hurts

On Friday, I planted tomatoes, and tore up the carpet in my living room. On Saturday, I pulled up the tack strips from the carpet and sanded the floors. I didn't get to bed until 4:30! Yesterday, after working 8 hours, I finished the sanding and stained the floors. On top of that I have to work until midnight today and tomorrow, and I have to take my final for the library class by midnight on Wednesday. I went home on my lunch hour today, and mom decided she was going to put another coat of stain on. Yeah, she totally did it wrong. She didn't wipe it down, she just painted it on and left it. She also moved the entertainment center back into the living room and stained AROUND it. AND, she left a "path" from the hallway to the kitchen! Now there are 2 big areas that don't match the rest of the floor, that looked not so great to begin with. My life would be a lot easier if she would just tell me what to do and let me do it. She doesn't NEED to get in on the action. She's going to do it wrong anyway, and I'm going to have to fix it. It just means more work for me. So, that's why my whole body hurts.

Oh, yeah, I saw a moth the size of my hand. I was amazed. It was ginormous! I made everybody go look at it.

I may not be back for a couple of days, I have to study. Have a nice day!

Monty popped my cherry!

On Friday, Monty became the first person I met on the internet that I've met in real life. We went to lunch at El Chico's. I get very nervous about meeting new people, so I was freaking out a little, but it was great! We talked for 2 solid hours. It was so much fun. Thanks Monty, you rock!

Also, I have a new renter, Idol Blog Live. Apparently he blogs about Idol while watching Idol. That's good, because then his mom won't make fun of him for taking notes during Idol.

Have a nice day!
