I know Leah put this on her blog the other day but i can't stop watching it and saying "lick lick" in my head all day long! Courtesy of our friends (close, personal friends) at Toothpaste For Dinner. I think it is numero uno on youtube today.
in other news, it is lunch time of a very hectic day so i am taking a time out to blog and scarf down some left over orange peel chicken. goal #6,723 of 2007: STOP EATING OUT. Eh, well, you reach some, you miss some.
ok the joke is bad but THE POLLEN IS EVERYWHERE!! it's coating my car (i think it gives it a little something extra, really). i don't have bad allergies to pollen or privit or any of those outdoor thingeys. (what is PRIVIT anyway - all i know is the girl i work with can't stop complaining about it?) BUT i am sorry for everyone who does in Arkansas & wherever (namely my husband who is quite swolled up in the eyeball area). This pic shows the cest pool of pollen at the end of my driveway after the sort of rain today! pollen insanity. i know. my life is crazy.
what does the pollen look like where you live? www.pollen.com
ah. tuesday. i haven't taken a day off in a long time. i REALLY wanted to stay in bed this morning. i think i need at least a day! all this lame talk about pollen and work.
great weekend! relaxing happy time. brooke was here. audra and mike came over; all of us sat outside b/c the weather here is AMAZING! lots of attic fan love this weekend.
brooke & i have also decided to play around with some silk screening stuff so we made the above tshirts this weekend! it was a trial and error kind of weekend - we are learning lots and it is quite entertaining! we have a couple of other shirts in progress - will keep you updated!
yep, a hello kitty toilet seat cover! hahahahahahah. don't you love it? i do.
gift from mama linda!
have a good weekend everyone! i believe i am having houseguests in the form of brooke apkkkkkkkker and waqueline wells. possibly one. possibly both. we'll see where the weekend takes us!
i was thinking about old school technology and/or lack thereof this morning and found these pictures in my old school yahoo account (use gmail, people, gmail). and i was trying to think of the # of email addys i have had in my lifetime (including jobs and personal, i guess about 15 plus) and how many i currently have (a solid 4 plus; my job forces me to have one for every association we work with but they all funnell into one inbox).
i was thinking about college - and how i didn't even have a computer in college or a cellular telephone (until senior year b/c audra and brooke almost killed me b/c people would call them looking to chat with me). i got my first phone with karl actually (ahhh - a man who can handle and support my phone obsession!) - he helped me pick that little nokia out. i think it was one of our first "dates" b/c you know in college going to best buy together constitutes a date, right? ;) we have decided to start a collection of our phones and someday we will display them all and laugh. maybe our 50 year itch party? i think so.
do i sound like an old lady? ;)
instead of "exuse me or what did you say or please repeat" or really just something that is a complete sentence or phrase that makes sense. even "huh?" and "eh?" are preferable and hurt my ears much less. and here in the great state of AR you have to draw out the question like so: "doooooo wuuuuhhhhuuuut?" if you are shocked or surprised by what the other is saying OR like so: "duwhat" *sharp t* and say it fast (all one word) if you mean business and need someone to seriously answer you right then.
i have heard it ONE TOoooo MANY TIMES this week at work (and it's only tuesday!).
i am down with saying "ya'll" occasionally (it even slips out of my mouth quite accidentaly these days!) but NEVER will i be a do-whatter! and you can't make me. but i still love all of you that say it - just a little less than i would otherwise ;) teehee.

friday we had a very happy hour at stickyz. ms. alexis trotter was in town; we lurves her. got some hanging out with our friend mike ortega! we had some drinks and went to watch the hogs! (ummmmmm......not much to say about that one!) saturday was su & seth's lucky baby shower. weather turned out PERFECT - started a little chilly but i think we all got some sun toward the ends! there was a crazy amount of pregnant ladies there and/or ladies who had just delivered! i'm so pleased it all turned out well (more pics on Su's Bloggity!). then, since i was in conway, i went to meet ms. melissa p. haney and we got the crazy, wild idea to head to tulsa for jenny&jeff's st. patrick's day party in tulsa. so we did. and it was a blast. we celebrated the one year anniversary of reconnecting with ms. sarah jane (see 1 candle on cookie pic!) we packed it up pretty early sunday morning and headed back to arkansas! haha. i am trying to recuperate and relax and get some CATCH UP SLEEP!
the workout train continues. i think this is week numero 3. haven't seen any difference yet but i am quite sore today so i know i am starting to work out harder/have more efficient workouts as my body remembers how to MOVE ITS BOOTY as i settle back in. i can't believe i have been away from the gym so long. i adore feeling workey outey. will let you know! getting my body fat % tested next week! probably not going to disclose that number at this current juncture in the workout plan.
k - must sleep. ti ti ni ni. (pronounce: tie tie nigh(silent t) nigh(T). translate: i'm tired. night night.)
also, the time has come to start playing bono's sunday bloody sunday obsessively in preparation for st. patrick's day! (ok maybe some happier tunes as well - you know about getting drunk at funerals and weddings and various other occasions!) get your green (no orange for you) and get ready. grandpa cronin's homemade irish creme is coming your way! my dad sent me a rockin' st. patty's day CD. i AM ready.
here is our letter we sent with cali bear if you are interested in some gushy crap and/or the great state of ARKANSAW:

Dear Ms. Hellman’s 2nd Grade Class,
So far our new friend has been to Seattle, Alaska, New Mexico, and San Antonio! He stops with us and then down to Florida and then up the east coast (VA, NJ, PA, ME, CT) and then heads back to Cali! What a great project! And what great timing with the perfect southern weather and the marathon news! He even came with a little disposable camera so we could take our pic with him! Quick: Send this yankee some interesting facts about Little Rock! Cali comes with a journal and the first entries were so great - we've got to make ours fabulous! So FUN! i adore!
pics above of karl and patrick running and with ashley who ran the 1/2 and with the silver crinkley victory finishey warmer thingeys.
gearing up for another fun work week. sigh.
since he has been tracking he has run this:
calories: 26,298 (that is about 7.5 pounds in calories, right? 1 pound = 3500 calories)
He will be running this Sunday - the whole 26.2 miles. wish him luck! call me if you want to come watch the ending! (Race starts at 8; expected finish around 4-5 hours later!)
