Like, oh my gosh, totally, for real

Trisha, Karissa & I are totally going to go see Cyndi Lauper next week! I'm so stoked. Cyndi is one of those people who speaks to & for the 14 year-old girl inside us all. It will be a totally awesome experience. Hopefully I can get a couple of good pictures with my phone.

Since I've quit smoking, the things that annoy me are annoying me even more. I try to keep these annoyances to myself so people don't realize how controlling, bitchy, hypocritical and anal I really am, but right now I'm about to burst. My biggest annoyance right now is my mother. She's driving me insane. I'll be out and about doing my thing, and she'll call me and tell me to come home and do some stupid shit that, if it's that important, she can do herself. Oh, that's right, I said tell. It would be different if she asked me in a nice way to do whatever super mega important thing that has to be done right then, but no, she TELLS me. I have never handled being told to do something very well. I am independent and rebellious, and you'll get way better results by asking. Telling will only insure that it's going to be a long time before what you want done actually gets done. Also, she doesn't pick up after herself (or her damn dogs) at all. This is where the hypocritical comes in, because I'm not good at picking up after myself, but at least I try. When I get home at night, she's usually been home for 5-9 hours, usually sitting in her room playing computer games, while the dogs (5 of them) have been running amok in the house. They get into the trash, they chew stuff up into shreds, and the boy dogs pee on everything in sight. By everything, I mean EVERYTHING that's mine. They don't pee on her stuff, so it's not a problem, right? Wrong! I've almost decided that I'm going to start peeing on her things and blaming it on the dogs so she'll realize what a big problem it is. What makes me maddest is when she takes my clothes out of the dryer and just throws them on the couch. Every time she does it, my clean clothes get peed on and I have to rewash that load of laundry. When I take her clothes out of the dryer, I usually fold them and put them on her bed. How hard would it be for her to do that? Seriously!

Turns out I'm really good...

at not blogging. I just haven't been in a blogging place lately, but I'm feeling it today. So, here's what's been going on. I quit smoking. It's been 11 days, and I'm feeling great. I've had a couple of episodes where I almost punched someone in the face, and I cussed out a cashier at Wal-Mart (because she wouldn't sell me nicotine patches without my ID), but other than that, it's going great. I joined Weight Watchers last week also, so I wouldn't get fatter from quitting smoking. I'm going to a meeting on my lunch hour to weigh in for the first time. Wish me luck.
UPDATE: The weigh in went well. I've lost 5.8 pounds since Wednesday!
I got a new cell phone this weekend. It's really cute. See:

It's fun & functional! You can't beat that. I downloaded a BUNCH of ringtones, and I got something called a call tone. Now when certain people call me, instead of hearing a ring, they hear Cyndi Lauper singing "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". It costs $2.50 for 3 months, but it's worth it to put a smile on my friends' faces when they call. Brion & I went to the fair this weekend. It was good times. The beer guy was really cute, so we kept walking half way across the fair grounds to go back to the same beer tent. Brion deserves major props for the power of his influence. I'm not really sure how he did it, but he convinced me to get on the Ferris Wheel. It was so scary! But, alas, I lived to tell about it. Hope everyone is having a happy Monday.

I'm very sad about the death of the crocodile hunter. I do kind of want to see the video, though.

I'm a little pissed that Will got voted off of Big Brother. I wanted him to win. I'm a little ashamed to say I want Janelle to win now.

I've been a knitting fool lately, that's why I haven't been posting.

I went to Bartlesville over the weekend to play with baby Madison. She's getting so big. She's such a sweet baby.

Have a nice day!
