Giant Carrots

Diana will kill me for putting this pic of her up. Its not a very metal picture but look how huge those carrots are! She said she wanted carrot sticks and what better than 1 pound carrots?!

I got these at the awesome Hong Kong Market on Jimmy Carter Boulevard. Comeing soon is an in depth detail of my tour of Doraville which includes a DIFFERENT international market with crazy foods.

If I was rich..

A couple of weeks ago I went antiquing with my mom at the Scott antique show. I saw several things i would but if i had multiple thousands of dollars. This monkey was one of those things.

Okay, I know its a fashion store, but I saw this sign outside of Bebe sport. First, this chic is jogging with a bag and a jacket. Second, she's jogging in gold lame underwear. That can;t be comfortable, safe, or fun for her. This sign makes me want to burn that store down.

I recently lost half my index finger in a an accident with my lawn mower. I have it in the freezer if anyone wants it. It is mostly intact. I put it in the freezer the day I lost it after I found out I wouldn't be able to have it reattached (due to medical cost, verrrry expensive) so it was freshly frozen. The detachment point was just above the second knuckle. I have been saving it for a while but I have finally decided that I am ready to let go of it but I cannot bring myself to just throw it away. If you are interested please email me why you want it. I am not going to give it to you if you just plan on giving it to your dog, for instance.

Bag o hair

One day i was driving home from work and I thought there was a bag of dead puppy in the road. Luckily someone just lost their hair. It was still there the next morning so i was able to snap a picture of it.

Twilight- Now available on DVD

So this past weekend I got to go to a slumber party! Melissa was celebrating the Twilight DVD release and she kicked her boyfriend out for the night and invited her closest 8 girlfriends! Its too bad my camera battery died. I only have pics of us doing each other's makeup and nails and eating cookies and brownies. I didn't get any pictures of the pillow fights in our tiny nighties or when we did skin treatments and then showered together.

Oh, and yes Scott said "really?!!!" when I told him thats what we did.

Anyway, the movie is okay, and definitely watchable on DVD but I think Melissa is crazy for watching it 9 times in the theater and who knows how many times at home. She's writing a dissertation on it and apparently she'll talk about mormons and how they relate. Go get em! Knock'em dead(ish).

Apparently Turkey and Eggroll caught a red bellied woodpecker today. I didn't get to see it but Scott said they hurt it's wing. The bird was gone when i got home so i hope he recovered from his brush with death.

Spring has sprung!

Spring is here and with Spring come cute clothes. Well, sometimes. Old Navy gets more and more like K-mart each time I go in. Usually their clothes fit poorly and often if they do fit they won;t after a wash. So, now I'm deathly afraid of the green shorts that will plague us all. I know girls will be wearing these unfortunate things with their unfortunate uggs and strapless tube tops over a t-shirt any day now. Brace yourselves, this is your warning.

***note: No Olivia's or lori's were hurt during this display. Unfortunately your eyes may have been.

Good bye Georgia Tech

Today is my last day at Tech. Its been 6 and a half weeks here that have gotten a little better over time but I'm still pleased to go. I look forward to my new career and the endless possibilities of looking cute and learning awesome skills.
Before I go I must make sure no one lost this earring. It moves around from bulletin board to bulletin board. It stays on the 3rd floor of the architecture building but it does migrate.
Also, I wanted to remind you all to join the chair in the Elevator Club. This is not exclusive to GA Tech and chapters are popping up all over the place!

So, I think the things I will miss most about my 6 and a half weeks here are the lunches with my best lunch buddy. So often people turn you down for lunches by stating they brought their lunch or they don't have money. Not Wendy. She would bring her lunch and sit with me for good conversation and acceptable food. Thanks for the good times Wendy. If you go for any lunch buddy interviews I will be glad to provide a reference!
I also think the campus in the spring would be way more awesome than those bleak months where I had to walk miles from visitor parking and struggle to figure out where anything was. Yes, with spring upon us its easier to forget those hard times but I'm sure Decatur will be way better in Spring. Even without Wendy.

Eggroll is weady to wok!

Eggroll went to the vet this weekend. She had rice coming out of her butthole and any animal owner should know that this means tapeworms. So I finally wrangled her and got her in the car. She was very unhappy in her harness and more so in the car. She got used to it but once we got to the vet she tried to hide in the back window. Then she tried to throw a fit and spaz out so she was carried into the vet.
Once inside she was great. Nervous but very well behaved. She got pricked, prodded, anally violated, and not once did she growl or show any aggression. They even stood her on her hind legs and shave her lower belly looking to see if she had been spayed. You would think buzzy clippers to her belly would make her squirm but no, she just looked quizzically at the vet like "what is this weird thing you are doing?"
I did find out she has heartworms so we have to prepare for that. This means she will get 2 or 3 shots of arsenic. This kills the worms and then I will need to keep her calm and not let her heartrate elevate. If she starts playing too much then too many dead worms can pass out of her heart and into her system and kill her. Otherwise her checkup was pretty good!

Oscars party

So I know I've been behind in updates but give me a break.
Anway, I recently went to an Oscars party. I have my mother to thank for my exquisite fur collection. I had 2 minks to choose from and I went with the chain of minks for this occasion. I just love how grossed out the vegetarians were. I fed my furry little friend a pig in a blanket and I thought Angee would just die right there.
What you cannot see is that my gown is floor length and my hasty sewing job did not help. The straps were constantly falling off my shoulders and exposing my foundation garments. Regardless, it was a good time even thought the only part of the Oscars that I saw was some Indian dance from that Slumdog Millionaire movie.

How much do you need?

Recently I went to our lay-off dinner. That's where a group of us get together every few weeks and enjoy a meal with friends who used to be coworkers. Only those who were laid off are invited but sometimes we invite others that know we were awesome and they should have kept us. Yes, only one or two others joins us.
Anyway, we went to Manuel's tavern. My friend love love loves that place. The food's decent but its not worth all the trips she makes me take there. And you would think she would get tired of it since its right across the street from her. But I digress-what I want to ask is "why so much ketchup?" They really provide an obscene amoutn of ketchup on each table. 3 bottles. THREE. I really can't imagine the table using one whole battle in a day, much less three! Additionally, i think ketchup is gross. Actually its Gross with a capital G.

Snow fun

So we had a snow day the other day but of course it was a Sunday. I woke and it was like 60 degrees outside and rainy. The weatherman had said snow but I'm always doubtful as this is Georgia. Then the temperature dropped and the rain turned to snow. I brought Eggroll inside and I decided it was a good day to lay in bed and read all day. I didn't really think it would stick but a short while later it was coming down! I waited until there was a nice covering in the yard and let the dogs out. At first they were like "no way!" but then they realized it wouldn't hurt them. Turkey loves eggroll so much that she didn;t care that her paws were wet from the slushy snow. Then she decided to stand in the cold lake that my backyard was becoming.

One of the big bummers about Georgia is the snow people. There is always a valiant effort made, but they usually suck. People have to scrape and shave the ground of all of its snow in order to create the big snowball. So what results is usually a rock hard ball of ice with grass, dirt and pinestraw all mixed in. Then of course the next day it is 65 degrees again so it all melts away as fast as it appeared. But thats okay because i'm ready for Spring!
