I couldn't believe my ears!!!

SO I had been listening to this singer for a little bit now, I really didn't think she was on too many people's radar. Well I was really shocked this past thurs. night on Grey's Anatomy when they started playing the song "I'm Good, I'm Gone" by Lykke Li, she is from Sweden... the acoustic version that I had been listening to she had done the song with Robyn, the Shout Out Louds and a couple of others. I guess the cat is out of the bag and she is going to be on every Tom Dick and Harry's ipod... regardless, I really dig her music.
video is the one I had been listening to

Okay so normally I get my eyebrows threaded and I don't think it hurts all the much, the occasional hair might not want to come out, but no worse than plucking. So I am getting my brows down and the lady is harassing me to get my lip done as well, normally I get my lip wax when needed. So I finally cave and allow her to thead my lip... um, never again people. Only waxing from here on OUT. It was so painful, it felt like she ever so slowly riped out each individual hair and took her time in removing it. I thought that tears were going to start streaming down my face, never again!

Give Earth a HUG

I am not sure if I have ever really celebrated EARTH DAY?? I think once when I was young, McDonalds was giving out little tiny trees with Happy Meals for kids to plant. Or maybe that was Arbor Day??? who knows? I do remember planting trees in college for Arbor Day as well... hmmm.

How to celebrate EARTH DAY?? I already recycled my newspaper and I threw my plastic cup in the plastic recycling, now what?

just cause it makes me laugh

new header

so I made a couple of different headers at work... I know which one I like best, but I don't know if MFC actually like any of them haha

I am magic, or so I thought

PREFACE - Okay, so yesterday while I was at work I had recently stuck a piece of Eclipse® gum in my mouth but right before that I had taken a sip of root beer.

CLIMAX - All of the sudden I had the urge to cough and when I did (this is where the magic comes in) this white powder came out of my mouth. I could easily see it because of the light from my computer screen. It was AWFUL - it made my nose burn and the taste it left in my mouth was nothing short of disgusting and tasted not a thing like Eclipse® gum! I thought I was magically coughing out power... really I thought that my gum and my root beer had a chemical reaction or something hehehe {sadly thats no joke I really did!}

PREFACE {I LEFT OUT} - well before any of the previous things occured I forgot that I had just recently taken a pill. I am sure the little cap on it had some loose and lodged itself in my throat, so when I cough I coughed up my pill

ENDING - my nose burned for a good 20 minutes after this occurance, I don't know how people intentionally snort up drugs through their nose cause it did NOT feel pleasent at all!

obsessive much???

I think I might be! I have been on a craigslist rampage ever since I got my turntable. If I had a ton of spare cash and a house, I could totally have hooked myself up

let me show you my craigslist find of the day!

a little expensive but I am swooning over this STOVE

And some people's opinion of 'very nice' is really really off base for what I consider 'very nice'.

{oh quick little funny story on my turntable, I didn't realize all the things I needed in order for my turntable to actually work i.e. speakers and an amp. Um, amps aren't cheap! I seriously thought I would just be able to hook it up through my tv speakers and just listen away, but such is NOT the case. I finally bought a couple of records the other day and now all I can do is put my ear as close to the turntable needle as possible to hear a fraction of a nosie coming from the turntable. Not a good way to listen! My good friend Holly called me the other day and asked me what I was doing and I got all panicky because I was trying to listen to my record, but is that something I wanted to admit? Well not really but I had to fess up because I think I sounded really suspicious or something. Anyways, I have the mentality of a 5 year old and I want to play with my new toy NOW, but I can't and it is super frustrating!}

Oh last bit...DRUMROLL PLEASE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I got an E.L.O. record, a Crosby Stills and Nash record and lastly the Saturday Night Fever record.. BOMB!
{> = drum noise}


SO I am starting to feel a bit of a rivarly with my dear cousin... she has posted a blog two days in a ROW! YIKES... it seems I have some catching up to do!

So I am going to London in May and I bought a ticket to see a SHOW... I don't know anything about any of the 4 bands but I am hoping it will be fun regardless!

Now I am on the hunt for tickets to a show in Paris, this is a bit more difficult because a lot of the websites don't have an english translation page. There is a possibility I could buy a ticket and it not at all be what I thought I was buying a ticket to... I will just think of it as a wild and crazy adventure.

One right-handed Whopper combo please!

I don't remember this HOAX, but its pretty awesome!

The Left-Handed Whopper
In 1998 Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."

Put Your Records On

So I bought a turntable from some home skillet on craigslist yesterday. It reeks of cigarette smoke and needs to be cleaned up a bit, but I think I LOVE it already. Mind you, I don't have speakers for it, nor any records, but soon my little kitties! I have been lurking on ebay for some records that I want and I have found a ton. I think with my record collection I am going to be very specific in what I will buy. I don't want records just to have records, I want music that I will actually listen to and that I think will sound killer on vinyl.
