I'm copy-catting Dawn

Here's what ya do:

1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year).
3. List three events that happened on your birthday.
4. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
5. One holiday or observance (if any).

On November 27,

1895 - At the Swedish-Norwegian Club in Paris, Alfred Nobel signs his last will and testament, setting aside his estate to establish the Nobel Prize after he dies.
That sure was nice of him.
1924 - In New York City the first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is held.
No wonder it's my favorite parade.
2005 - The first partial human face transplant is completed in Amiens, France.
I'll stick with the face I've got, thanks.

1976 - Jaleel White, American actor
That's right, I share my birthday with Urkel...
1962 - Davey Boy Smith (David Smith), British professional wrestler
And the British Bulldog!

1978 - In San Francisco, California, city mayor George Moscone and openly gay city supervisor Harvey Milk are assassinated by former supervisor Dan White.
You should read about this. It's a very sad story.

My birthday falls on Thanksgiving every few years.


Here's another one:

Countries I've visited:

create your own visited countries map

States I've visited:

create your own personalized map of the USA
I think I got all of them.

I'm tagging Karissa and Deshona.

I have a new guilty pleasure

It's Dawson's Creek. I never watched it when it was originally on, but I started DVRing it to see what it was all about. I mainlined 4 episodes last night, and there was so much drama that I had to stop knitting and actually watch what was going on. I missed the first 3 episodes of the first season, but oh well. And talk about drama! Pacey slept with his English teacher...Joey's sister had a mixed baby (which isn't a big deal to me, but apparently is to Jen's Gram), in Dawson's den...Dawson's mom had an affair with her co-anchor...Joey's mom is dead & her dad is in prison (but that's still no reason for her to be so antagonistic toward Jen) wonder these teens have angst! How did I not watch this when it was on?
The last episode I watched was the "Breakfast Club" episode. I've got to say they portrayed the librarian in a very negative light. Anyway, the gang, and some random girl were in Saturday detention, and Dawson said how "Breakfast Club" it all was, and how the stars basically disappeared into obscurity. Then, Pacey says,"Emilio Estevez, he was in those duck movies, remember. Those were classics, so funny." Then everyone just blankly starred at him. Hilarious! If you don't know, that's funny because Joshua Jackson basically got his start in the Mighty Ducks movies.

Yeah, so Dawson's Creek airs on TBS at 9/8AM. Check your local listings. It's totally worth it.

Also, my dad is going to be here in 18 days! I'm so excited!!!

I suck

I've been such a horrible absentee blogger for the last couple of weeks. The main reason for that is not much has been going on.

Here's a funny story. I planted a tree a couple of weeks ago, and I went outside Tuesday night, and it wasn't there. I was just sure some idiot had stolen my tree. Turns out the guy that mows our yard mowed it down. It wasn't a very big tree, just looked like a tall weed with huge leaves on the top of it, I guess. Will it grow back? If you know, let me know.

I went apartment hunting with Brion on Saturday. He and his roommate found a place here in Midwest City, so now instead of having to drive 30 minutes to go to their place, I'll only have to drive like 5. They move in on Thursday. I'm so excited!

Last Sunday, not yesterday, last Sunday, I was drunk and I caught my cat Cheech peeing on the living room floor. I've been contemplating putting him outside for a while. Well, I did it, and it's been 8 days since I've seen him. Maybe someone took him in. I really hope so. I'd feel so guilty if I knew something bad happened to him.

Have a nice day!

So, I was browsing myspace today, and came across several people that I went to high school with. A lot of them were fat, balding, or just plain ugly. Is it wrong that I take great joy in this?

Tuesday, June 13, 2006


Man, it's been a rough week. Last Tuesday, I was getting ready to leave for work when I discovered that one of my bad dogs had peed on my only clean pants. I had to call in late so I could do laundry. On Wednesday night, my car broke down. On Friday mom & I went to my neice's first ballet recital. It was awesome. On Sunday, my neighbor across the street got in a stand-off with the police. It only lasted like 20 minutes, but it was a very intense and exciting 20 minutes. The guy's wife and kids came to our house while they waited for him to come out. It started when the guy shot their computer like 2 feet from their 17-yr-old's head. How crazy is that? Even crazier, he didn't go to jail. DHS didn't come to check on the safety of the kids, nothing. He got a ticket for discharging a firearm inside the city limits, and they took him to the crisis center, but he was home in a couple of hours. On top of all that, blogger was down for a few days last week, so I couldn't vent here.
Anyway, I was really stressed about my car. I bought an extended warranty when I bought the car, but it only covers powertrain stuff. I was scared that it was going to be something that wasn't covered, and that it was going to cost me a lot of money. I got my car back today, and it didn't cost me anything! All that worrying for nothing. Not that I'm complaining, now I have money to do stuff for the rest of the month.
Hopefully that's the end of the drama for a while, and I can get back to posting regularly.
Have a nice day!

There's something wrong with

I don't know what it is. I don't know if they got hacked, or bought, or what, but it's not working. That's the only place I have links to most of my favorite blogs. I'm so screwed. If I had you on my blogroll, and you're not on the list below, leave a comment with a link to your blog. I definitely won't make the mistake of trusting a website to do something I can do with HTML ever again!

I can remember:
Pink is the new Blog
Post Secret
Kevin Smith
Princess Melissa
Greek Goddess
Librarian Pirate and
Pink Pen Papers.

I'll add these links to the sidebar later. It's the first day of the semester, so I'm a little busy today.

I made it through the wilderness

Oh, yeah, I made it through...Today is the last day of my crappy work schedule! On Monday I go back to a semi-normal schedule. I'm so excited. I get to sleep until 11:00 every day again!

I think I'm going to take a little break from renting my blog out. The renters don't get as many clicks as I think they should, so I feel like I'm ripping them off.

Tomorrow I'm going to a yarn store in Guthrie with my mom. I wonder if there's anything else fun we can do in Guthrie. If you know of anything, let me know.

Oh, I almost forgot, I went to the new Wal-Mart last night. The layout of the place is totally different from any other Wal-Mart I've been in. It was kind of confusing. And, there was this creepy guy with his elderly parents, and I was waiting for them to get out of my way and he says, "I saw your tattoo." Now, the only tattoo that was visible was on my chest, so the guy was letting me know, in front of his elderly parents, that he was gawking at my tits. EWWWWWW!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
