Thank you, Michael Scott for bringing laughter into my life every Thursday evening, for bringing "that's what she said" into our everyday vocabulary and for that ladies suit you wore a few seasons ago.

Thank you, Whitney Houston for being a hot mess and for reminding everyone in America that crack is in fact whack.

Thank you, Moes for always being my restaurant of choice, for always being open when we want to dine, for quality service (except from homeboy and blond girl) and for free cookies.

Thank you, Florida for keeping me warm most of the year, for being southern, for being the inspiration for many great tattoos and for being shaped like a gun.

Thank you, facebook for keeping us socially connected, for improving my stalking skills via news feed, and for implementing facebook chat so I can easily talk to Josh Williams and Cliff Hutchingson at 3am.

No thanks to poisonous fruit, mean cats, the red hat society, Thomas Kinkade, ugly purse parties or mtv.

Happy thanksgiving.

hot mess

I had a discussion via text message today on the subject of hot mess. The Conclusion? B. Spears is the hottest mess because she doesn't wear shoes, tries to kill people with umbrellas, and lets infants drive. Amy Winehouse came in second place on account of gross hair, excessive drug use (rehab anyone?), and weird makeup. Third place goes to Lo Ho... for obvious reasons.

Honorable mentions: Courtney Love, Tara Reid (what happened to her?), that girl from engaged & underaged that married Byron Bougeois, Kathy Griffin (especially when she was trying to open a bibliotech and she had that sunburn) and of course Whitney Houston.

I just love a hot mess. Please tell me if you or anyone else deserves to be on this list. Thank you.

PS- Daniel Webb is a bowling diva.

vampires and spaghetti

So, I've been reading the Twilight books. I know it's embarrassing. I know I'm too old. But I HAD to read them before the movie came out. Sometimes I just like mythical creatures. Vampires, werewolves, mermaids, unicorns, big foot, nessy, ect. I do not like zombies... however, I did read the survival guide.

First off, there was a hot pink track suit AND a teal tech vest sighting at work. Both on 60+ women. Good news.

Secondly, I had a delish dinner at the Wildflower Cafe. All you can eat spaghetti, bread, salad, dessert, and a drink for about $6. Also included are conversations with Ms. Ester and sexual innuendos from our waitress. Just one more amazing thing about my small town.

Wow. Where do I begin? With the tweens of course.
Okay, I have a really hard time being around tweens girls. I can't deal with all the attention seeking giggles. I can't deal with all the seat switching. I can't deal with all the blonde high lights. I specifically went to the 10:30 showing so I could avoid the tweens. I mean, don't they have curfews? Apparently not.

Cedric Diggory/ Edward Cullen/ Robert Pattinson is hot. Real hot. This is pretty much the dirtiest picture I could find of him.

The Jonas brothers are not hot.

The actual movie was okay I guess. I think that if I hadn't read the book I would definitely be confused. One minute Edward wants to eat Bella and the next minute they're in love? What?! That's dumb. And why was Jasper the most awkward person in the world? The baseball game and the super running was pretty fun. I'll probably watch the sequel.

Oooooh! I also got to see this preview!

buy me socks

Let me start off by saying that I don't feel well and I'm kind of in a bad mood. A better mood than last night... but still not so great. I will try my best to keep the negativity from overtaking this blog.

The last few nights have been cold. Real cold. Record lows. I would like to remind everyone where I live...

Lake City, FLORIDA! Seriously? I mean, I like fall weather... but I don't want icicles hanging off my mouth. I don't even own warm clothes. I rearly wear socks.

Speaking of Lake City...
I live in a small town and I love it. My friend Daniel wrote a nice blog about it the other day (okay, it was actually about much more than just our small town... but Lake City was mentioned). Anyway, a group of people from my church helped put up christmas lights downtown! It was really sweet even though I almost froze my toes off (a direct result of not wearing socks).

I drew a pretty great political cartoon the other day. If you happen to be the wife of a certain ex football coach of CHS, you probably wont like it. Coming soon to a newspaper near you.

I've started on my Christmas cards!! They're going to be pretty good this year. Just you wait. Maybe hallmark will want to hire me.

What a pretty tree costume...

good news

Last night I had four wonderful conversation with four wonderful people. It was a good night.

Conversation A: You're a gent. Don't be mad that I crossed over to the dark side. We should reunite... but not to play frisbee.

Conversation B: I'm proud of you. This video is for you.

Conversation C: When you play in Gainesville we will take lots of pictures and post them all over facebook to make everyone jealous. Oh, and we'll cuss and no one will give us dirty looks. Bring Sam and his long neck.

For you don't count the dead...

Today I decided I that I like Derek Webb.
Although it was writen in 1963, I think this song is still very relevant.
Go read the lyrics.

PS- Josh Williams totally stole this blog and posted it as a note on facebook. I'm just saying...

I'm a popsicle

Brrrrrr! It's so cold outsite and my north face is failing me. I basically have a love/hate relationship with cold. Maybe it's because I've lived my entire life in Florida and every summer I complain about the heat... but when the cold actually comes, I can't handle it. Anyway, this cooler weather has got me thinking about Christmas! My fave holiday! I'm going to try and make a lot of the gifts and all of the cards I'll be giving this year. No easy task. We'll see how that goes.
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day (shout out to Ted!) which means a day off! Instead of working I will probably sleep so late, have a delish brunch, recap recent events with that good Alee, vintage shopping, work on Christmas gifts, read about vampires, watch trash tv... and pretty much be a hot mess all day.
Also, this is my 50th post. Yes, 50th. YAY! Who knew I was such a blogger?

Dear World,

Today I felt like I was going to die. Good news... I didn't. I just had a horrible migraine. I think I've been getting them more often because I need new glasses. I will be having a optical exam in the near future. Anyway, I'm feeling a little better now, so I've decided to update you on my life.

1. I will officially be working at centrifuge in Panama City Beach this summer. I will be the missions mobilizer and teaching a missions track. I'm pretty excited about it. I mean, who is lucky enough to spend 2 summers doing what they love and getting paid AND getting to go to the beach all the time? Me. Haha.

2. I've been researching a bunch of art schools and specific art programs for fall 09'. More on that later. Also, would anyone like to give me photoshop? I know you have it guys...

3. I will be purchasing a new (well, used) car in the near future. Or at least in the next few months. My car is SO OLD... and always breaking.

4. I've been reading about teenage vampires... and I've decided I probably wouldn't be too upset if for some reason I became one. I mean, I've never been a huge fan of tan and I really like night time. I'll have to work on that fear of blood though.

5. My dad was almost eaten by an alligator yesterday at Alligator Lake (go figure). Okay, maybe the alligator wasn't going to eat him... but he could have. He was about 7 feet long. Ted should have shot him so I could have some awesome new gator boots.

That's all for now.

the Duggars are my fave family

My favorite show right now is "17 kids and counting". It's about the Duggar family who have 17 children (with one on the way). They live in Arkansas, home school ALL of their children, and are super conservative christians. I know most people think that the Duggar's are crazy... but I think they are wonderful. I truely believe that Michelle Duggar is one of the best moms in the world. All of her kids are loving and sweet and well behaved. Although they have a huge family and little income, they have absolutely no debt (props to Dave Ramsey).

5 reasons why you should watch this show:
1. All of the children's names start with a "J". Josh, Jana, Jessa, Jinger (shouldn't that start with a "g"?), Josiah, Jill, ect...
2. All of the children play the violin and piano. I should hire them or something.
3. The dad's name is Jim Bob...
4. They make their own soap.
5. The oldest son just got married, so hopefully we will be seeing a spin-off.

While I was in West Palm Beach this summer, I met a homeless man named Omar. He was about 26 years old and had been traveling around Florida for the past few years. He told me about heart ache and brokenness. We talked for about an hour before he had to leave to wait in line for lunch at a shelter. Omar came back about three hours later and I was able to give him lots of left over food. As I was leaving he said "You really do love Jesus don't you". Now, during our conversation we never talked about Jesus or religion. We talked about school, art, music, relationships, Florida, and life. Never Jesus. Before I could answer his question, he said he would remember to pray for me. This man that had nothing was going to pray for me. Wow. That hit me hard.

I wish I had taken a picture of Omar so I could remember him forever. I went to West Palm Beach to minister to people and they definitely ended up ministering to me as well. That was my favorite day of the summer. God worked on me so much this summer and I'm glad Omar was part of it.

The King will reply, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.

Dear America,

Go and vote.
It doesn't matter who it's for.
Just vote.

Sunday, November 2, 2008

This is how I feel about the upcoming election.

Christ for President by: Woody Guthrie

Let's have Christ our President
Let us have him for our king
Cast your vote for the Carpenter
That you call the Nazarene

The only way we can ever beat
These crooked politician men
Is to run the money changers out of the temple
Put the Carpenter in

O It's Jesus Christ our President
God above our king
With a job and a pension for young and old
We will make hallelujah ring

Every year we waste enough
To feed the ones who starve
We build our civilization up
And we shoot it down with wars

But with the Carpenter on the seat
Way up in the Capital town
The USA would be on the way
Prosperity Bound!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and spooky Halloween! Mine was pretty good (except work was lame and I had migraine). I like the way my costume turned out. I like that on The Office last night Kelly was dressed as Carrie from Sex and the City. I liked that I got to hang out with a bunch of kids tonight. I liked that there were sweet old people handing out candy in my neighborhood. I liked that Whitney told me a girl came to her house dressed as Nancy Drew.
