breakfast surprise

i bought a yogurt and granola parfait for breakfast this morning at work. i’m about one-third of the way into it and i decide to spoon to the bottom layer of granola and mix it in with the vast amounts of yogurt on top. then i see it.


a hair. in my food.

the room is COMPLETE. (mostly.)

here is one angle showing the pink and orange walls...

and another angle with pink and orange walls with bunny accents. (bunnies courtesy of the good folks at work who contributed to the orange/pink cause.)

and yes, i'm pleased with how it turned out. (and very pleased to be mostly done.) what's left, you ask? a dresser that i painted which is STILL VERY WET and will probably be covered in kitten paw prints come morning.

a week from now we'll be in the car, driving to north dakota, for our july 2 wedding reception at ye olde hansen farm. there are definite perks to driving at night, such as cool weather, less traffic and a child who will be sleeping. downside? inability to stay awake at the wheel, my aging eyes decreasing ability to see the road at night, things like that. however it'll be nice to get back and see some good folk who still live 'round those parts.

hey, don't i know you from somewhere...?

i feel like a stranger in my own blog!

now that i have a real jobby job, i find it hard to make time to write here. however thanks to my jobby job, i should be able to repair the laptop, which means blogging will become a top priority again! woot!

we've spent the last couple of days painting the kiddo's room, hanging things in the kiddo's room, etc. hopefully tonight it should be complete, so i'll post the results...i'm sure you are anxiously awaiting the answer to the age-old question, "will pink and orange really be wise choices for wall colors?"

yes, the kiddo requested orange and pink. hmm...we'll see how this works out. at first glance, the orange in the paint can looked like cheese whiz, so let your imaginations SOAR from that thought.

hmmm...cheese whiz on celery.

okay...back to work for me.

one of these days i will write a nice, long post, filled with wit and insight and pearls of wisdom. but i finished up a root canal today and let's just say i have only one thing on my mind right now:

Best "Walking through downtown to work" song EVER

“I’m Afraid of Americans” by David Bowie and Trent Reznor.

Seriously. You will feel like you have your own personal soundtrack.

it's been DAYS since i've been on blogger!

i'm a bad, bad blogger lately. but the tooth pain is getting a little bit better and we are more settled in the new place, so that makes blogging a little bit easier. we have a delightful duplex and in front of this duplex is a sidewalk lined with scallopped-edged landscaping rock. my sister thought it'd be a fun lil' experiment to see if we could walk on it as though it were a tightrope. yeah, that worked REALLY well.

my sister is so graceful.

and terry's moves? like buttah.

my balance is always improved with a cigarette hanging out of my mouth.

that's us showing EXACTLY the faces you should make while tightrope walking. seriously.

tooth update

sweet, sweet vicoden... now i understand what all the fuss is about!

i kid..i only took 1/2 pill.

so the first half of a root canal was today's main attraction. nothing quite like the flavor of novacaine to start the day off right! and actually i don't think they use novacaine, i think it's some form of "caine," but not the "nova" version.

okay, maybe that 1/2 pill is affecting me more than i originally thought.

might be time for bed.

i have a bad song stuck in my head

it's that damn "a few of my favorite things" from the sound of music. i don't know how it got into my head, but i keep making adjustments to the lyrics to keep myself somewhat sane.

"haircuts and ankles and large metal tassles, driving in traffic can be such a hassle.."

(seriously. put it to music and it'll all sound right.)

and yes, i have been drinking. luckily i see ye olde dentist tomorrow at half past noon, which means i won't require being sauced to alleviate the pain.

maybe i should just wear fake teeth. i don't mean dentures, i mean these:

i don't think there is anything in the corporate dress code that specifies what kind of teeth i should have. and, with this economy pack, i could alternate teeth every single day! woot!

misery defined

tooth pain.


Song of the Day

Song I can’t stop listening to and have realized that it might just be the perfect song whilst performing daily job duties:


“I’m looking forward to joining you, finally” by NIN.
