Happy Autumn!


So, I am finally scheduled to be back at my desk doing my real job (graphic designer) instead of running the afternoon daycare shift. It was great being with the dogs and customers again, but my work has been piling up. I am now trying to make my way through the backlog.

This post is going to be all over the place... I can already tell.

Saturday night Danny and I went to Tool. OMG! \m/ I'm not sure what else to say, besides that they kicked some serious ass.

I was hoping to go to Iowa to visit my grandparents for my Grandpa's 90th birthday. Unfortunately, tickets to Iowa are insanely expensive. It would be $800 for Danny and I to fly there, and that doesn't include hotel or renal car. We could fly to California and pay for a hotel stay with that much money! Seriously, it's Iowa. Why so expensive. We don't have time to drive out there right now, because that would add 14 hours to each end of the trip. I guess I just have to keep an eye on airfare to the midwest. I really want to see them before it is too late. They are getting older, and I haven't seen them in years...

I hate those emails that friends forward you. You know the ones - where you have to scroll down through 5 pages of forwarding headers before you get to the actual content. But, the forward I got today was pretty cute. Since I refuse to forward it on, I pasted it into a web page (and cleaned up the bad grammar as best I could - I have terrible grammar skills, but I do at least know the difference between you and your.) Click it - you know you want to! Free Screen Cleaner!

This weekend, I am hoping to go apple-picking! Mmm, autumn! Apple cider, pumpkins, crunchy leaves, crisp air... I am pondering going to the Renaissance Festival before it ends for the year, but I am undecided. I'm not up for any confusing, long drives, and Danny has no interest at all in going.

I haven't done this in years, but I am feeling nostalgic for the times I was able to slack off at work at post all day long:

Today's Outfit:
(bottom to top)
- flat, silver sandals
- lucky brand 'dream' jeans
- teal, lace brazilian drawers
- white, strapless bra
- white tank top
- sheer, white 3/4-sleeve henley
- 24 silver bangles
- handmade amethyst/fluorite necklace
- pink ribbon lapel pin
- 4 rings, 8 piercing hoops, contacts and a hair rubber band

Today's Lunch:
(in no order)
- home-brewed wild orange iced tea
- sandwich super chunky peanut butter on apple danish bread)
- jalapeño cheddar potato chips
- gala apple

Now that my schedule is less crazy, I want to get caught up on both my Stvlive.com updates and re-braiding my hair. Last night I got 10 braids redone. The back braids are all dreaded where they roots have grown in, so I kept breaking my comb. Oops.

I am still playing Animal Crossing on my DS. I haven't had any visitors to my town since my AC buddy when back to college. Anyone up for a visit? I am trying to save up my Amazon gift certificate money to get a pink DS lite before they go out of stock. My regular DS is clunky, and I have a really hard time seeing the dim screen. I still have a lot of saving to do before I can get it.

Uh, that's all for now. It has taken me hours to write this in between all my work stuff.

"OMG! \m/ I'm not sure what else to say, besides that they kicked some serious ass."

Yeah they did, did you get any pics? Mine aren't that great unless viewed at Flicr's Medium (500 x 375) :-( Incredible concert either way :-)

only crappy pics...
I didn't want to have my camera taken away, so I just had my cell phone. I had to be careful with that even, because we were close to where security was checking people's tickets for the floor seats.

The pics I took with the cell camera are here:

I have seen that screen cleaner thing before, but owning a dog that licks EVERYTHING in sight (3 guesses who, and the first two don't count) this becomes infinitely funnier. :-)

My dog could totally win a lick-off. She even licks in her sleep!

Well, licking is mostly a hobby for Lula. Her true forte is speed eating.

Amusingly, the next time we brought her in after that telecast, we found out that people were asking who she was, having seen her antics.

my dog licks my head as long as she is within 8 inches of me!

Where are you trying to get to in Iowa? Maybe you could fly into one of the bigger cities (maybe one outta state like Chicago or Minneapolis), rent a car and drive to the smaller place?

I do have to say I am pretty sure you could fly out to California for like $200 each and stay for FREE!... Hmmm I hear Danny has a competition ready veggie chili! ;)

I hope you get a chance to go to Renn Faire this year.. They've added on some really neat stuff.. We're planning on going one more time this year..

We're going to a farm this coming Monday(?) Homestead Farm Orchard. Unless we can find one that in VA thats more appealing..

I'm hoping to get a DS Lite in Onyx pretty soon.. I've been saving up all my best buy gift cards and amazon reward zone certificates.. Animal Crossing looks like fun, I've been looking at Zoo Tycoon alot however that game isnt wifi like Animal Crossing..

Good news your getting some of your own time back =)

That will be fun getting back into the design swing. How have you been lady? I added you back a while back but things have been so crazy I haven't had a chance to say hey :)
