My not so fairy tale life

Once upon a time in a land far far away (not that long ago, and not that far away) there was a maiden, (this would be me) who had a suitor (my ex-bf). This suitor had embarrassed the maiden on many occasions. For example, he wore his leather motorcycle chaps to her company open house. Everyone was in suits and he felt it appropriate to wear this. That was a very sad day for the maiden. A couple of months later, the maiden though that perhaps the suitor had learned his lesson. She invited him to her company party. This party was in the grand ballroom of a downtown hotel. Not wanting to take any chances the maiden chose the suitors suit and tie. Things were going well. The maiden's boss came up to them and introductions were made. The suitor proceeded to converse with said boss. The boss’s wife joined them and the boss then introduced him as the maiden’s boyfriend. That not being enough for the suitor he decided to add, “my name is Josh, it rhymes with squash”. Right then and there a little piece of the maiden died forever.

No they did not live happily ever after, in fact a few months later, they broke up. Shocking I know.

Oh Mikey...

One of my very first memories of Michael Jackson was when I was in kindergarten. I think the song "Beat It" had just been released. I was sitting at my little table with a group of my little guy friends and we were singing and dancing around. Then an argument started about the lyrics, what words were said etc. My love for him started early. RIP Michael, may your children be watched over.

(Kind of long but sooo worth it)

Back to the Wilderness

I have been wanting to go camping for a few weeks now. I am not really sure where this desire came from. Generally I am not big into bugs, dirt, and no showers. I don't want to do the trailer thing. I want to have tents and sleeping bags. I am craving s'mores and fire roasted hot dogs weird I know. Can you see me around the camp fire singing kumbaya? (It's a funny thought)

I keep running into one problem. I can't find anyone who is available to go with me. Sad I know. I think part of the problem is that people are afraid. Afraid that I will want to leave after about oh say an hour. Afraid that I will get bored and they will have to entertain me, and afraid that I will get cold. I don't really blame them since that is true most of the time. Once I get cold, I am miserable. Me being miserable = everyone around me being miserable.

Friends and anyone else who wants to come, I make these promises:
  • To bring 2 books and a craft. When I get bored of the first book I will have a backup and when I get bored of the back up I will have a craft.
  • I have some awesome wool socks, I will make sure that they are packed. I may have to take a few days to find them since generally they are not June attire.
  • I will brush up on my dutch oven skillz. Right now my skillz consist of peach cobbler and chicken parmesan. You will be full and happy as long as you like your food a little on the blackened side!
  • If my dutch oven cooking fails I will bring pop tarts.
  • I will go ahead and book a room at the Marriot right now, since we all know that is where we will end up.

Does anyone know him?

(Jake from the Bachelorette)
Even though his near perfectness is a little creepy, I would like to meet him. I think he is hot, and there is something about him that is intriguing. If anyone knows him, please hook a sister up. After all I endured this date, and think I deserve it.

Is it just me?

(image taken from here)

Has anyone else ever had a date end with the guy telling them that he forgot to brush his teeth that morning? Oh did I forget to mention that this happened at my doorstep as we were about to kiss goodnight.

Nope? It's just me. That is what I thought.

Happy Monday!

We did not share a goodnight kiss.

The more I learn about her

the more I dislike her. I am sure that everyone has seen this but I just saw it for the first time.

She has always been extremely rude to her husband and now she denies her child water. If there wasn't enough time for her children to have a drink than she shouldn't have had one either. With this and her HORRIBLE haircut, I don't think I can watch her anymore.

Eyebrow Envy

So this weekend I may have watched the Army Wives marathon on Lifetime. Don't ask why, I really don't know. I think I was too lazy to find something else to watch. I ended up kind of liking it though, 8 hours of the same thing tends to do that. As I was watching I realized that Kim Delaney has great eyebrows.
I was going to tweeze my eyebrows this weekend. But instead I decided to let them fill in and go and get them reshaped. In the next few weeks if you happen to see a giant bush growing above my eyes please don't run from me.
