You are sociable, outgoing, energetic, and lively. You prefer to be around people much of the time. Stressful and frustrating situations can sometimes be upsetting to you, but you are often able to get over these feelings and cope with these situations. A desire for tradition does not prevent you from trying new things. Your thinking is neither simple nor complex. To others you appear to be a well-educated person but not an intellectual. People see you as tough, critical, and uncompromising and you have less concern with others' needs than with your own. You like to live for the moment and do what feels good now. Your work tends to be careless and disorganized.

air to the throne

a few weeks ago, i had the opportunity to go to happy hour with some old buddies of mine. brandon was down from the 'nati, dustin's wife let him out of the house, and towlie... well, towlie will go anywhere we are.

a while back, we all tried to convince dustin (D-Money) to try out for the vh1 competition, air to the throne. it was an air guitar competition. anytime there was a jukebox and brandon & dustin were anywhere around, boston and/or journey got played. boston was the favorite for air guitar practice.

he didn't tryout. his wife couldn't handle the shame. but here's a little preview of what might have been.

canon sucks!

yes, i got my camera back. yes, the settings were all screwed up. yes, i set it back to 'default settings'.

it will not stop taking BLURRY pictures!! it seems like it has to be in 'macro' mode now, to take any shot within a 5' range! that's just retarded.

i need to call and find out if there's anything else i can do to stop the 'macro shots' but i didn't bring my camera today. i know... shocker.

wish me luck

weekend update/recap

friday - addie came into town and we were supposed to go shopping. it didn't quite pan out that way. she was tired and i was broke. later, we met HM at original ninfa's for dinner. YUM! after that, we went to watch the 'stros make a comeback in the last inning! well, we were there for the whole game, but we really watched the last inning.


saturday - SHOWER DAY! yes, i took one. i had TWO bridal showers on saturday. ain't i loved? we had a "friend" luncheon with most the girls i know and love... and then a "family" shower, later. busy day. BUSY! i had fun, tho. we got a lotta good stuff!! THANK YOU EVERYONE!


i even got a surprise gift from Frisky. she brought me the sunday edition of the chronicle. Portabello, was right on the front page!! Portabello is my cycling buddy. he's on the team. he's part of the core group. he's actually missing a pretty significant mountain bike race just to make it to the wedding. =)



sunday - S1, S2, Princess, Jazzy J and myself went to look for centerpieces. we came up with some pretty good ideas. none of which i wanted to spend that much money on, just to discard later. i mean, really... what the hell are we going to do with 20 round vases after the wedding??? that's what i thot.

HM joined us later. he had a pretty good idea about using beer/serving trays for the centerpieces. same idea for what goes in it, but the tray instead of the vase. i liked it! it's more us. and c'mon, we'll use the trays for SOMETHING.

busy weekend.

until next time, i'm sweet t and you're not.

I GOT MY CAMERA BACK!

WOO-HOO!! LET FREEDOM RING!

i got it back yesterday. the jackasses left it on the front porch for someone to steal! thanks Canon!! thank goodness HM got home early, yesterday.

sorry for the no posts lately. been a little busy planning a little something called, 'THE WEDDING'. i'll update you on that, tho.

monday - picked up my dress
tuesday - bought undergarments for said dress
wednesday - was supposed to look for centerpieces (for the FOURTH(?) time). instead, went to see shaggy's soccer game. that little guy ROCKS on the soccer field! wish i had my camera then!
today - work happy hour to celebrate what we thot would be a 21 million dollar reimbursement from the hurricane billing. turns out there's a 5 mil cap on state funds. we're celebrating anyway.
friday - i'm taking the day off to go shopping with addie. we both need something to wear for the shower(s).

there probably won't be a self-portrait for tomorrow. busy girl. gotta shop (hi HM!). =)

p.s. there were other things i thot about blogging this week. things that i've already forgotten about, in my feeble old age. maybe they'll come back to me and i'll let you know about it next week.

spd i want my camera back!

borrowed the idea from fellow blogger, spoonleg. she looked more like renee zelwegger and natalie portman. you know...GIRLS!

how scary is it that i look more like oliver stone than i do, madonna??? and who the hell is heike drechsler???? of course, i only found the most horrible picture of myself.


reading the fine print

i was reading addie's blog this morning and found out she wanted to be "the next contestant" on What Not To Wear. I am such a good friend that, of course, i submitted her application right away. you should do the same.

but just so we're clear addie, the following paragraph (from the bottom of the application) applies to you:

Applicant agrees to pay all federal, state, and local taxes, including income, use or sales taxes or any other governmental charges imposed on prizes, including the value of any goods or services received and cash gifts, if any, given to me or received by me by reason of my participation in the program and I release and indemnify producer from any liability therefore. I also authorize producer to deduct or withhold any such taxes or charges that require a payment prior to delivery of said prizes, cash or gifts.

no video

i was going to put a sneak peek of our video up. as you can see, there will be no video. i didn't get it uploaded... plus, i think i want to do some tweaking to it. i watched it yesterday and decided it needed a little more "oomph" to it (note to HM: stop rolling your eyes!).

you'll see it. but not just yet. i'll let'cha know.

weekend update/recap

friday - i wanted to order my flowers friday, but ended up working late. no flowers ordered. i did, however, stay in town long enough to have a cocktail and pick up some dinner for mine and HM's anniversary. yes, we celebrate monthly anniversaries of the day we met. yes, we're gay. get over it.

saturday - he went off to work. i gave myself a pedicure and convinced myself i didn't need a new outfit for the nite. that was a tough one.

we took mamalane out for her birthday. i would show you pictures, but i haven't got my camera back. (side note: did i tell you my camera was covered under a recall?) anyways, we went to the melting pot in the woodlands. it's a fondue place. a pretty pricey fondue place. we were okay up until the main course. i think it's safe to say, we were all a little scared after we got our raw meat on a plate. i had no idea this was how it was done. apparently, you put the raw steak, shrimp, or whatever in the burning hot lava fondue for a couple of minutes, then it's done. i gotta say, it was pretty damn good. and OHMIGOD, the ying-yang dessert was YUM! so much for my special k/lean pocket diet 'til the wedding, eh?

sunday - the usual. i really wanted to load up the jukebox and wash sadie. uh...that didn't happen. i was just telling S1, this morning, that when i first got my jukebox, i was totally obsessed with it. always looking for new records and making labels and switching out records and cleaning it. since she got hers, she is now in the cleaning phase of obsession, leaning into the getting new records obsession. oh, by the way, (to S1) i'll give you back your Frankie and The Knockouts, but you will not get Aldo Nova! plus, i don't even thing you gave me Aldo Nova in the first place. maybe you did, but you're still not getting it back. =p

last nite, i did work on a little something for the wedding. HM thot it would be cool to have a dvd collage of us and friends and family to show during the reception. not that everyone will have to watch it all at once, but they'll have the option to check it out and maybe we'll make copies for friends and family to take home. too gay? maybe.

so i finished the "us" part of the movie last nite. those of you who are loyal readers to this site, just may get a glimpse of it this week. i started working on the "friend" part of it and frikkin' Lappy froze up!! i was furious! we've got alot of friends so we had a ton of pictures, that would require more than one song. the first song was a loooong one so for me to be done with that part and have Lappy freeze up... was not good! i lost everything i did on the friends. i'll have to start from scratch again. =(

until next time, i'm sweet t and you're not. have a great week!

weekend update/recap

friday - started off well enough with my boss telling me i was going to work saturday morning, and me telling him, basically, to suck it. it was Handyman's birthday weekend and it was not going to be screwed up by HIM!

friday evening - we really didn't do much, but sit around and hang out at the house. we were ready for a busy birthday weekend so we didn't wanna overdo it.

saturday - HM got up early enough... i got to sleep late. everybody was meeting us at 3:00 at the beach club, except for Frisky and JustInCase. they got to the house about 2-ish. Frisky... i love her! she's just as loud and obnoxious as i am. what's not to love? we made our way to the beach club and met up with everyone else. we had a pirate themed birthday party. aarrrggh matey!

i think everyone had a good time there. there's a swim up bar and we had a really cool waitress that took care of us. everyone got pirate tattoos, pirate earrings, and eye patches!














saturday nite - back at the house, it was more. more birthday. more celebrating. good times.

sunday - we hung out and had BA's famous bloody mary's. well, the guys took the boys out to the lake for some swimming and i slept. then, i got up and had bloody mary's with them. ET came out and bought the boys a swimming pool. we really couldn't get them to embrace the pool, tho. i put ringo in but he just wasn't sloshing around like i thot he would. he got out soon after.

later, we made our way to the greasy spoon hole in the wall (great for wedding dress fittings, i'm sure) for cheeseburgers. after the burgers, we were ready for nap time and movie. we watched talladega nights and the ant bully. typical will ferrell movie, but still pretty damn funny! the ant bully was a cute enough flick.

today - today i did some laundry and worked on the wedding website a little more. i'm contemplating making everyone sign into the guestbook for them to get into it. i know more people have looked at it, but i don't know who. it would be nice to know.

i know the weekend sounded pretty damn boring but it really wasn't. we were pretty busy for the most part, with birthday happenings. i'm really tired and almost ready to go back to work. okay, not that tired.

until next time, i'm sweet t and you're not.

p.s. my camera is saved! canon has a recall for the error i'm getting! YAY!
