My staff says that weird people are drawn to me

I was just at the dollar store buying hurricane supplies and the guy at the checkout says,

"do you want this empty cardboard box for your cat?"

"...how do you know that I have a cat?"

"because I can see the future"

"oh, ok. So, what's going to happen with the hurricane this weekend?"

"30,000 people are going to die"

"...that's a lot... ...I guess I'll take the box"


CA getaway with MattE

A few weeks ago, MattE and I went to California for a wedding. California is perfect. The weather is beautiful with no humidity- great hair, every day.

Santa Barbara,

San Simeon,



Matt and I decided that we want to move to Santa Barbara some day. The city is really relaxing and we would have a little house somewhere up in the mountains. The only bad thing about the trip was that I got a terrible sunburn. It was the first sunburn I've ever gotten and let me tell you, it was not pleasant. I am now traumatized and will be wearing sunscreen whenever I am out in the sun from now on. If you haven't been to California, you should really go now. Right now!!! (and bring me with you)


no internet = no blogging

Well, I shouldn't blame it all on the internet. I haven't posted anything in awhile just because I've forgotten about blogging. Of course, now that I do want to post things my internet isn't working at home. To make matters worse, Verizon, the internet company we have, is on strike. The soonest time someone can come out to look at our connection is September 4th. (the internet has been on the fritz since August 4th) rage. Matt, Sean, and I have lots and lots of rage.

Other than the internet situation, I have been thinking a lot lately about my life, where I am, and what I'm doing with myself. It may be due to the fact that in 11 days I will be 27, something that I'm not looking forward to. My friend suggested that I start telling people that I'm 30 for the next few years until I'm actually 30 to start getting used to it, since that is the direction I'm inevitably headed in.

In honor of my turning 30, I've decided to refocus myself and make some tough decisions. If you know me, you know that I'm not one for change, big or small, (I just bought a pair of wide leg jeans that I'm a quite nervous about) but I've decided that change has become necessary. I've started something... I'll call it a "project." I can't share with you yet because it's still not fully formed, but hopefully in about a week I will be ready to unveil.

stay tuned.
