Checking in [Oct. 16th, 2005|12:36 am]
The most fantastic of all muppets in the land
I guess I'm sort of fading out of Livejournal. I'll try to keep hanging on for a while, though. There are a bunch of people over right now, and I had to come in and take care of Chris's birthday present really quickly. I'm going to get back out there in a second, but I just wanted to check in and say hello.

Last night, the Fyuss played a pretty damn awesome show, but they didn't go on until like 1, and I didn't get home until like 4. I would have liked to have slept all day today, but we had to get ourselves to the wine festival. It was a gorgeous day for it, and we spent a lot of time just sitting around on a blanket, drinking wine and people watching. (highlights included the shirtless, nipple-ring sporting chubby dude. Borderline man boobs there. Also went on a very long winery tour with the purpose of being able to sample special wines at the end. The guy was longwinded and strange, but provided the catchphrase of the day. During a long speech on his distaste for wine snobbery, he talked about how irritating it is when people swirl the glass and sniff it and all that. He finished with "Christ! Just put it in your mouth!" Hah!

I really should get back to the party. Whee!

I hate not being able to get on Livejournal at work. I haven't been on in like a month, and now the idea of checking my friends page just seems like it would take years and years and years. I'm going to read it for a little while and then shower and go to bed. I just wanted to say hi to everyone.

Damn. I feel so out of the loop.

I can check my email from work. People should email me. Yes. I command it.

So, how the hell is everyone?

stuff! [Aug. 21st, 2005|07:09 pm]

*shakes fist at Sephora.com*

I am ordering some stuff from Sephora, and you can get free shipping for orders of $75 or more. How much is my order? $74!!! Now I must find the cheapest thing I can to get free shipping!

Last night, Chris and I worked concessions at the Ravens game. Open Space got the opportunity to have a stand for a few of the preseason games, and they get to keep all the profits. It was a really interesting experience, but I am so glad that's not my full time job. It was like a thousand degrees in that place. Chris made hotdogs the entire time, and I prepared food (mostly nachos) as it was ordered by customers. Those of you who know me will not be surprised that I was pretty serious about the gloves and all that. Once the gloves were on, I only touched food, and if I did touch anything else, I washed my hands and put on new gloves. The same cannot be said for this one dude who was working with us. He had a glove on his left hand, then proceeded to pull Tostitos out of the bag with his right hand. I very politely said "Oh, there are gloves up there if you need one for your other hand." He put on two gloves, but then would wipe the sweat off his face and jack up his pants at every given opportunity. Then, to top it all off, he totally ate a pork BBQ sandwich WITH THE GLOVES ON, then went right back to serving up food! Gross!!

Also, this chick insisted on making a bunch of nacho trays like 2 hours before we opened, and they were all stale by the time people started ordering them. It was just so damn humid. So, of course, people were bringing them back, and we ended up having to claim SEVENTEEN nacho trays as spoilage, which is subtracted from the profit. Nice job.

Dude, I just saw that "The Adventures of Pete and Pete" is available on Netflix. I have a feeling it would be one of those "get for when Chris isn't home things" - I"m not sure if his love of Pete and Pete matches mine.

In other news, they are banging the hell out of something upstairs. Sgt. Grumbles is pretty pissed off about it.

Here's what I finished today.Collapse )

I'm pretty happy with it. It's been a long time since I did any beading, and this turned out pretty well. It made me want to do more, which is a good sign.

So, there's that, as well as the decos and slams that came this weekend. And only a week until I go back to work! Yikes!

Is something wrong with me? [Aug. 9th, 2005|11:32 pm]

I just spent a half hour tagging my 50 most recent entries. While it was fun to look back and even more fun to put things into nice little categories where they belong (*twitch*), I realize I have now simply opened a can of worms that must be finished. I must now tag all of my entries. Why have I done this to myself?

I just started a new journal.

You can read all about it on its information page.

You don't have to add it as a friend, but if you're into cooking or food, you might find it interesting.

Campity Camping [Aug. 9th, 2005|08:19 am]

I'm sporting some major bugbites, but it was completely worth it for the weekend I had.

Camping Highlights:

- AJ and I were the only ones who actually wore the overalls ALL weekend long. Chris and Rick totally didn't. Suckers.

- Friday night's delicious meal - who would have thought you could cook such awesome food in the woods?

- On Friday night, the fire started dying, so Rick decided it needed some more fuel. He dumped fuel on the fire, which in turn went up into the fuel can. Rick shook the can, sending little tufts of fire all over the campsite and, incidentally, straight onto my foot. I had walked over the get something from the back of the truck, so had no idea what had transpired until I felt searing heat on my foot. I yelled for water and doused my foot. All of a sudden, I saw flashlights and heard "macho man" voices. It was the rangers, making their entrance at the exact wrong time. One spotted Patrick's throwing knife and said "That doesn't look like a camping knife," to which Patrick matter-of-factly replied "No, it's a throwing knife!" They then became obsessed with seeing all of our ids, which then became the theme for the weekend. "Do you have your id?" "Does that apple have its id?" "Does that fire have an id?" You get the picture. Anyhow, they left without major incident and we were back to the business of drinking. Rick showed us his hand and I swept into "Mom" mode as soon as I saw his thumb and forefinger were charred and already beginning to blister. Yes, kids, we learned a real lesson that night: Don't just throw fucking fuel out of a can on a fire.

- Falling asleep in a tent surrounded by the sounds of the woods.

- Not waking up to an alarm clock. Waking up when you damn well please to light filtered through trees and the sound of morning animals.

- Swimming!!!

- Learning the most fun game ever, which I am going to play next time I am in a pool. "Whopper.....uhhhhh....*giggle*" "Maki Maki"

***break: My cat just took a huge crap, and I can smell it all the way in the office. Sgt. Grumbles craps like a man!***

- We scrambled up Cunningham Falls, which can hardly be called "falls," then being imagined to be a polar bear by tourists Megan, Chris, Nick, and Rick. Can't wait to see those photos. When we came back down, Patrick told us about some douchebag who thought he was the Falls police.

- The tragic death of the salamander at the hands (feet?) of Nick Rose.

- DRINKING ALL NIGHT IN THE WOODS.

- I learned how to make perfect marshmallow roasting sticks.

- A midnight snack of toasted cheese sandwiches made over the fire.

- Did I mention drinking all night in the woods?


That's all for right now. Those who were there: what were your favorite parts?
