Whoops. Bad Blogger.

September 27, 2010

I’ve really been sort of an absent-blogger as of late. I have been both lazy and busy with work, myself being sick, my grandma being in the hospital, being really lethargic and spending time with my new kitten! I am pretty sure it is a little boy, and even if it turns out to be a girl its tentative name is “Link”.

I found Link while I was at work the other night. I was getting ready to close up shop, and happened to look out the window of the store into the parking lot and saw this little guy just sitting in the middle of the parking lot. I screamed ” A TINY BABY” and ran out of the store to try and capture it. At first it ran towards me, then it paused, and ran the other way! After some time spent we discovered its hiding place in the metal leg of a giant dumpster. I reached blindly into this dirty, metal, bug-filled leg in the middle of the night, and birthed the little guy out. While scouting the kitten I didnt see or hear any others, and didnt see any other cats that could of been its mother. I wasnt sure if maybe he was the only one left or if his mother was dead or what. He was really bony and his ears were cute so I had to take him home. Poor little guy! He’s still a bit shy, but Likes to lay on my chest or in my lap when im watching movies or on the computer.

Im really glad we could save him, and he is taking his time warming up, but he is such a sweet little face when he does spend time with us. He’s already potty trained himself and is eating well. He is part of the reasonI havent been blogging much!

A few weeks ago I did a bike race that was 40+ miles all around the Fort. Lauderdale area. It really kicked my ass, but I am so glad I was able to finish. I Was really proud. It was a really good time, and I look forward to more races. Its exciting and riding my bike feels like flying, and it’s just a feeling of total accomplishment.

so much fun! so many bikes!

I’ll get back on track with blogging soon. Tomorrow im getting one of my tattoos finished, and thats exciting. Oh, and I got these amazing shoes in the mail a few days ago. I am pretty much in love with how ridiculous they are:

Im boring!

Things I Love Thursday!

August 19, 2010

1. Lush “Mask of Magnaminty”: I am a huge fan of any and everything Lush makes, but this face mask is so fresh and minty, slightly exfoliates and makes my pores smaller. It even removes makeup. It’s magical. Put some on your face and see what happens.

2. DONUTS: Normally I try to avoid eating these, and watch my sugar intake, but lately i’ve been throwing caution to the wind. When I was younger and my metabolism made an effort, id get 4 or 5 donuts on my walk to middle and high-school. Ahh, the good ole’ days.

3. Cardigans: Blame it on Mr. Rodgers, he just looked so damn slick all the time. I ‘ve been wearing cardigans with everything so damn long that I dont feel right leaving the house without one. I feel very weird with my arms exposed now. Cardigans are something I keep buying even though I easily have about 20 currently. If my house was on fire, i’d grab my cardigans.

4. Sailor (Chibi) Moon: To say I was obsessed with Sailor Moon when I was younger would be a understatement. If you know me, you know I still absolutely love it. I still try to collect old merchandise and watch the show all the time. Sailor Chibi Moon was always my favorite character. She is Sailor Moons daughter from the future.  Her pink sugary uniform is a total ruse – she is rowdy and loud and rude as hell, and for that, I love her.

5. Naked Juice: I have always drank Naked Juice when I discovered it several years ago while working at Whole Foods.  I usually stayed away from the green one, until recently I tried it at work. Its by far the most delicious of all of them. Shame on me.

6. Fixed Gear Bicycles: I could ran about these bikes all day, so i’ll keep it short. I love the challenge and excitement of riding them. They are my main source of transportation and let me eat those donuts I love so much without feeling totally bad. There is a great bike community where I live, too.

7. Candy Bars: Since Steve stopped being Vegan, he eats a lot of candy bars. Which means I eat a lot of candy bars. Candy bars are something I never used to buy or eat, and now I crave them all the time. Oh boy!

8. Nail Polish: I know I put polish on my last TILT – but this is a little different. I go back and forth between loving dark shades, and lighter shades. Right now im still stuck on light shades, so much so that I can never pick what shade to do my nails. I solved this dilemma by just doing a different color on each hand, see:

im wearing “minted” by Revlon, and “tickled pink” by Wet n’ wild.

that is also a little drawing i did on some receipt paper while I was bored at work, haha. I like to draw little character pictures of all my coworkers and leave them around the shop. Everyone I work with has such a distinct look and style that its really fun for me!

Im just going to leave this Japanese Legend of Zelda commercial here for your enjoyment/second-hand embarrassment:

Friday, again! I’ve been busy working this week, and my weekend will consist of more of the same. My job is great, so I dont sweat it at all. My only other plans this weekend are maybe a photoshoot for a friend, and lots and lots of bike riding I hope!

I have some posts lined up, now I just need to make time to post them! We are supposed to get a Tropical Storm this weekend, so I may be stuck in doors playing video games ( if the power doesnt go out! ) which I certainly wouldnt mind either – but I do really want to ride my bike, so we’ll see. I’ve been boring lately, but I started drawing again! So thats good! I used to love drawing so much but stopped for some reason, I have been motivated by some really god artsy friends of mine to get back into it again and im glad I have. I’ll share some pictures in my next post.

my hair is getting so long!

Have a fancy weekend everyone – and as always, if you’re up to something fun, comment and share it with me!
