Alright I am flipping (through the book of course...not like ACTUALLY flipping out) as we speak (type)...and the question is...
Question #77: Do you feel at ease going alone to either dinner or a movie? What about going on a vacation all by yourself?
Answer: Sorry this question is pretty darn lamespice if you ask me...but I must follow my own rules and answer whichever question I flip to..ugh.
I am totally fine going to dinner or a movie by myself! Sometimes I actually prefer it. A guy I used to date HATED when I would call him and be like, "Hey...I know we had plans but I am going to scrap those plans to have some me time." I would then proceed to head on over to whichever restaurant we were planning on going to and taking a book and eating by myself. He would get wicked pissed...I must admit it was a little funny!
Same thing with movies...sometimes seeing a movie all by yourself is awesome. I don't do that one too often though because most of the time someone I know wants to see the same thing so we just group it up and go together.
While I am a-ok with doing things solo I don't think I would be into going on vacation by my lonesome. To me vacations are fun because of the people you go with! If no one comes with you who is going to take pictures? And let you taste their yummy restaurant food? Who would ride in/on the plane/train/or automobile with you? It would be SO boring (kind of like this post).
So...I say heck-to-the-yes for solo dinner and movies! Heck-to-the-no for solo vacations....
I know I have let y'all down greatly with this post. It is looking like my 'funny' took a solo vacation and left me alone!
Anywho...answer this question in the comment section! What do YOU think about solo adventures (and no I did NOT mean that in a dirty way)?! Also, if you are a new friend o' the blog...introduce yourself (alcoholics anonymous style) I would love to meet you!

If you need any explanation as to why I could stare at this hot piece all day long. You obviously have not been paying attention. I heart Robert Pattinson. He makes me swoon. The end.
3.Choose one picture that shows your dreams and aspirations, or that holds a place on your 'bucket list'.This one may need a little explaining. I am a girl with dreams. Big, big dreams. Education is the key to all of these dreams. I am almost done with my Bachelor's Degree. I will be starting on my Master's in the Fall. After that I will hopefully becoming a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I want my own practice. I also hope to someday have a pH.d. As shallow as it may be...I do not think I will be satisfied until I have Dr. in front of my last name instead of Ms.
4. Link four bloggers-and tell why they inspire you.

Dear Aro,Perfect. Creepy. Scary. Sick. Perfection. Nasty. Ugh. I love you.
Did anyone else feel like they were going to pass out at this part? I did! I literally stopped breathing. I also stopped breathing during the very last scene...you know which one I am talking about. SWOON!!
Sorry for this ridiculously long post! As you can see I loved the movie. I plan on seeing it again this weekend...and next...and the one after that. Basically I will continue to go until it is no longer in the theater. Truth.
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
I am late for this entire day. I woke up at 5:oo this morning. Why? I have no clue...but it is only 3:00 and I am officially exhausted.
I had to venture out and brave the crowds at the grocery store AND Costco...it. was. not. pretty. It was especially not pretty because I promised myself I would be at the store by 9:00 and did not arrive until noon. Would you like to know why? I was busy swooning and freaking out over the epicness of a new blog that I am lucky enough to contribute too! Yes, that is correct the twitterverse was alive and well today with hashtags involving the #banginhotbookboysclub...c'mon admit it you saw it. If you didn't please venture over and take a look...it is going to rock your universe. Promise!
Oh how I love my Twitter/blog pals. A.Maz.Ing.
So I know this post was completely lame and pointless but this is all I have to give today because I have to go unload all my darn groceries and then make myself pretty for my date tonight. It is a date that has been a year in the making...and I am beyond excited. Would you like to know who the lucky fella is? Sure no problem...Yep. That is right. I have a date with Edward-freaking-Cullen...well with Edward Cullen and the six other ladies I will be seeing 'New Moon' with...oh and I suppose all the other people in the theater as well. But as we all know he only has eyes for me...ain't no thing!

Hottness Monster #9:
Hottness Monster #10:
Oh, Jake Gyllenhaal you are the love o' my life. Seriously. When I look at your smile and your big sad puppy dog eyes I see a glowing light and hear angels singing 'Hallelujah'. Truth. (Jil this one is for YOU!). Can I get an Amen?
Okay ladies...thanks again for all of your help with this list. I will be coming back to you in the future for more suggestions so start a-thinkin'! If there is someone you think of now feel free to leave the hottness monster of your choice in a comment...
So let me have it...do you agree? Disagree? Will you quit reading my blog if every single hottness monster post has a picture of Rob?
One last thing...thanks again for all your sweet comments regarding my Dad...like I have said a bazillion times I heart you all big time! xoxo
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
Did we fight? Yep. Did we disagree? On almost everything. Did we still love each other? Absolutely.
My Dad was 81 years old. Yep...he is over 25 years older than my mother. He didn't have his first child (my older brother) until he was in his late 50's. Crazy, right?! Right. So I believe this generation gap was the cause of most of our arguments. He wanted me to be a little lady who was polite and sweet and always wore dresses. I grew up to be polite and loud and opinionated and I could not tell you the last time I put a dress on! Another big area of disagreement came from this....
I am awesome AND a Democrat...
The two of us argued politics every single time we talked...and I think I will miss that most of all...even though we made each other mad it was still fun. I keep thinking about Thanksgiving and who is going to talk politics with me for hours on end this year...
This was back when we agreed on a lot. That sandwiches are delicious...and that I had a gigantic head. I believe I inherited that from him. We also had exactly the same amount of hair on our heads...
Dad, one of my brothers, and myself. this was my brothers 23rd birthday dinner. This was two days before my 21st birthday. I was bummed because we were at The Melting Pot and I technically couldn't order my first legal drink quite yet. My Dad was awesome and ordered ONE chocolate martini for me...he had ONE glass of wine. We were both tipsy by the time we left...total lightweights...
Another example of our mutual stubbornness is this lovely little tattoo I put on my foot when I was dumb and 20.I had every intention of hiding it from my pops...that is until my niece grabbed my foot the next day and I screamed because it was tender. The look my father gave me after he told me to wash it off and I said I couldn't should have left me dead in the hallway...why is this ironic?
I know this picture is hard to see...because it is old and faded and my baby bottle was blocking the view...but my Dad has been rocking this anchor tattoo on his forearm since he was 18 years old...
This picture was taken at a little BBQ my mom had for me after I received my associates degree...yeah I know not really something to celebrate but try to tell that to my parents! I didn't walk in my graduation from community college because I was heading over to a 4 year university to finish up my bachelor's. My dad was disappointed but I told him he would get to see me walk this May when I was really done. It breaks my heart that he will never get to see that...although it makes me happy that one of the last conversations that I had with him he told me how proud of me he was. If you are wondering if I will have a picture of him under my graduation gown this coming May...I so will...
This may not be the most heartwarming 'tributes' but it is real. My Dad and I were very different, we were also similar in so many ways. We loved AND we argued. We had ups AND downs. I know there is no way I would be who I am if he didn't exist...and for that I am grateful.
Rest in peace Dad...you are already beyond missed. I also solemnly swear to NEVER vote Republican (sorry but some things will never change)...
Feel free to comment with some of YOUR favorite memories of your parents...or some of YOUR least favorite memories...because in the end they are ALL important.

First, I am feeling some serious love for every single one of you fabulous people who read me. Your sweet words regarding my Dad were beyond kind and thoughtful. I wish I could hug each and every one of you (and that is saying something. because I am SO not a hugger!) So this is the best I can do...virtual-internet-blog-group-hug-to all of you lovely folks.
I know this isn't an actual post...but it will have to suffice for now because my pillow is calling to me! Tomorrow I will update with a post I have been working on for a bit. A little tribute to my Dad. Until then bloggers!

Another thing I want to mention is a super special thank you to blog friend Lauren Elizabeth. She has the cutest blog...if you haven't read her make sure you do! I was the lucky winner of her giveaway she hosted a few weeks ago. She promised a box of some of her favorite things and today I went to the post office and picked up my prize. Let me tell you Lauren delivered...it contained bags/bars of candy; yummy snacks; the cutest pair of tights ever; a to-go coffee container that she made; and many other awesome things. It gave me a definite smile today...which I needed. Thanks again Lauren! I included a picture of the loot I won!
I also want to say thanks to everyone who has e-mailed, called, text, or sent me their love through some insanely sweet tweets (holla! rhyme). I have amazing real life pals and amazing blog buddies. You ALL win at life.
Alright, blog-land peace out for a few!

With that all being said...I would SO not be cool knowing that a man I was involved with had been with a man at some point in his life. Sorry! I am all about people doing what they please, experiment if you want but I am a jealous kinda gal and have hard enough of a time worrying about other women...that I would lose my mind if I had to worry about other women AND other men. That is far too much for my jealous little heart to take!The question asked how I would react? I would ace right outta that relationship with the quickness! (Although the whole Jake/Heath scene in 'Brokeback Mountain' was the definition of hottness...and now that I am thinking about that I am rethinking my opinion, ha!) Just sayin'...
This is my 'Let's Keep This Blog Un-hostile' disclaimer. This is my blog and expresses MY views. I happen to be pro-equality. I however, do not judge or hate those who do not agree with me. So please do not judge or hate on me for my views! You are entitled AND invited to share your thoughts and opinions anytime as long as you respect mine. Deal? Deal!
So...your turn! How would YOU feel about your mate having been involved in a same-sex relationship pre-you? Is that awesomesauce? Or is it a deal breaker?

The Honest Scrap Award comes with a few rules…I have to divulge 10 honest things about myself. Then I have to pass the award on to 7 bloggers that I adore...and who I believe will be 100% truthful!
Everyone likes to say that they 'admire' honesty. I have found that the majority of the time this is not true. I however, do love it. Alright let the honesty commence (I am totally ashamed of some of these) ...
1. I am a bleeding heart liberal. I voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 election. I also voted for George W. Bush in the 2004 election.
2. I re-read the Harry Potter Series every summer. I have read each book over ten times.
3. I find Bill Maher to be incredibly sexy. I am probably the only person who thinks this.
4. I don't want children. I also have no desire to get married. I sometimes feel that those two facts make me a bad person.
5. I have never had my hair dyed. Ever.
6. I judge anyone who wears a hair scrunchie. For real. If I see you rocking one I will automatically assume you have zero fashion sense.
7. I am watching 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' as I type this post.
8. I am a hypochondriac. If you even suggest an illness within a minute I will have convinced myself that I have it. True story.
9. I would never date someone who was younger than me. Or shorter than me.
10. I have an obsession with designer sunglasses. I also examine peoples eye wear to see what brand it is.
There you have it. 10 completely honest facts all about yours truly. Hopefully you all still like me after some of my admissions!
Now it is time for me to invite 7 bloggy pals to receive The Honest Scrap Award. I choose...
Amy from 'My LaLa Land'
Kimberly from 'William & Kimberly'
Allison from 'A Bite of Allison'
Amanda from 'Amanda's Musings'
Ivy from 'Inspirations by Ivy'
Lauren from 'Thats What She Said...'
Vanessa from 'Caramel Covered Photographs'
Ok ladies now it is YOUR turn! All of the 7 I picked will hopefully post their own 10 things on their blog and pass the award along to others! Also, I could only choose 7 people...but I wish I could have picked ALL of you. So, please feel free to comment with at least ONE honest thing about yourself!

Hottness Monster #2-for-the-price-of-one:
Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder are two of the sexiest men on television these days. Personally, I think Damon is hotter than Stefan but...I would be happy with either/or...
Hottness Monster #3:
Hottness Monster #6:Jim Sturgess was a giant hit with most of the ladies. Lauren and ViennalsWaiting were especially enthusiastic over this choice, and real-life pal Jil is in love with him also. Jim is a super-fox and I love him. He can sing. He has a British accent. He has hot sex hair. As stated last night Jim can cross my anything anytime he wants to. Watch 'Across the Universe' and you will love him...
Hottness Monster #7:Anderson Cooper. The Silver Fox. My Future Gay Husband. He makes watching the news a whole 'lotta fun. Um. Hi...those baby blues are swoon-worthy...

This is round #2 of my observations. For round #1 check this out. Let's begin shall we?
so who knows what these are? prize to whoever gets it first! no one? really? hmm...okay they are 'jeggings'. go ahead and take a few minutes to think on that. 'jeggings'...as in JEAN leggings. as in people wear these as pants. as in the most heinous thing I have ever seen in my life. truth.
I am sure all of you have witnessed the 'man bangs' that are running around on the heads of hottness as of late. By as of late, I mean for like the last two years. It has always annoyed me...but I figured it would go away in time...two years later the phenomenon is bigger than ever. Today alone, in a ten minute walk across campus...I counted 15 sets of man bangs. 15!?! I just want to run up to them and brush the hair out of their faces and scream, "Get your hair OUT of your eyes!" But if I did I would probably get arrested. That would not be awesome.
*I am not hating on Chace Crawford...this was just funny...please do not attack. thank you!*
smoking is gross. like beyond gross. there is only one instance where it is not gross...witness
when he smokes it is hottness. other than that sicknast to the extreme. okay before you all tell me that it is a free country and you have a right to smoke...I realize that...BUT please do not be so lassez faire and inconsiderate about it. I do not want to inhale a lungful of toxic chemicals when I am walking down the street behind you...or when I am walking past you...or when you are standing 5 feet away from the door of the restaurant/store/class that I just walked out of. thankyouverymuch!
This statement is for the always adorable Connie (Seriously, have you all been to her blog? She is an absolute doll!) and I guess technically it is more of a statement for Connie's hubby-man Tony. Hi, Tony...so I have been thinking about this for a long time and have finally come to a decision.
This right here is the best 'My Little Pony'...
and this right here...is the best 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle'. Michelangelo lovers represent. That is all.
Okay now its YOUR turn. Comment with your own observations. Or comment and fight with me if you think mine are crazy...c'mon it will be a parrrr-tay! xoxo
