Yes, I have a thing for Christina Aguilera. Bionic is now one of the most played on the playlist...with the exception of a few. Sex for Breakfast? Morning Dessert? Nice ideas, but they sound like the background of a very bad porn. Or, I guess if I was a stripper I would play these tracks along with just about every Peaches track out there.
Though I really think it's the platinum blonde hair and red lipstick. Sigh. I need a new haircut and new lipstick.

Grilled cheese is the most delicious food out there, and this place has 15 different kinds of cheese on one HUGE sammich. What's that? 15 is too much? Pansy.
http://foodporndaily.com/pictures/buttery-grilled-sharp-cheddar-and-blue-cheese-sandwich/ here is another fine example of cheesy goodness. I could stare at it all day long. And no, that's not disturbing.

I love this Amy Butler cotton print, if I could have a whole room covered in it I would be super happy. I guess I'll settle for a sweet halter dress instead.
Halter dress is made with two coordinating Amy Butler prints, and accented with white bias trim under the bust. The bodice is lined with white cotton, invisible zippered back and ties at the neck. Dress is a small and will fit a 34" to 35" bust and a 25" to 26" waist (depends on how tight you want the fit to be on you). The skirt from the waist to hem of pleated ruffle hem is 27". There are box pleats along the waistline and gathers under the bust to accent the fullness. This dress was worn once by my model Megan in a fashion show in June.
Found here in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/30544457/day-dreamer-halter-dress

Yeah......really that's it. I'm swamped in prom and bridal so I have no life.

On the upside I'm swamped with prom dress and bridal orders! 20 yards of seersucker showed up for 5 dresses which will be super cute and Renee's prom dress that I'm just making up is going along swimmingly. I cannot wait to bellydance tomorrow night for a cancer survivor group and then hang out with the love of my life afterwards. I'm sure it will make up for my blowout yesterday in Target. Damn you Target and your slippery floors!

I doubt that teens are going to listen to Bristol Palin in regards to abstinence. Teens will do what they want to do, they are not all going to wait until marriage or even ever want to get married, OR ABLE TO. What is needed is more education in health classes, in gym class, in any class to get the message across in regards to making good decisions. To use birth control, to let them know what their options are. Sooo many schools turn their heads on this and whoa! What happens?! Teen pregnancies! Education FAIL.
On another note, I don't understand why people can't fill out the damn Census. It took me 5 minutes to do, how have people still not done it??? If you haven't, I'll be happy to send you my extra "Queer the Census" hot pink sticker to put on the envelope.

The building was great looking, all pale turquoise blue and white. Big windows in front with striped awnings over top. We walked in and the chalkboard had all the different pastries, pies, cakes and cupcakes listed. But, there was a pastry display case that had only a small fraction of what the board said they had. I ordered the chocolate peanut butter cupcake. The cake was good but the frosting was crunchy!? Like, they either added in granulated sugar to the frosting, or made thier own powdered sugar from granulated sugar and just did a half ass job at it. There was only 1 kind of tea available, no trash cans to be found anywhere, and overall we were kinda dissapointed and thought of all the ways we could run a better shop. I'm not naming the name of it as it wasn't worth remembering really. Eh. I think I just expect MORE from a vegan bakery. To be such a special niche, it should be such a special place that carries recyclable packaging and cups and more variety. I won't be back.

I have however calmed down a bit from the whole Hyundai thing. They are still asshats but I'm writing a letter for real. Like it will make a difference! But I'll feel better about it. Jerks.
And I'm off the Fat Smash diet. I was Soooo cranky for 9 days without pasta, sugar, cheese.....yes cheese! I lost what, 2 pounds? Eff that. Back on the carb and cheese train and feeling great. Fat and great. Whatevs.......

Try hiring someone who can recognize that when Subaru calls for a payout amount for xyz account that when they get that check that they can figure out it deposits into xyz account. Not another account and then blaming the customer for the issue. Your cars are junk, your service is even worse.

First off, not much sleep because SOMEONE came home after 12:30 am and woke me and Fartie up. Then shampoo in my eyes so I'm stuck wearing glasses. THEN the alteration of 'just redoing the zipper' took 3 hours because it was not just redoing the zipper, the whole damn thing had to come apart! I'm cold, cranky, we're out of tuna so no tuna melts and Fartie's eyes are still weepy and I felt like such a jerk putting drops in them this morning.

So we're in line and the board says there are 3 different prices for cupcakes. I'm thinking (stupidly I guess) that there was no way possible that a regular sized cupcake would be $4.50. FOUR FIFTY! Come on! We get our selections, get a soda to share and they ring us up for over $11.00. My husband looks at the girl like she rang us up for 4 cupcakes...but no, just the 2 and a soda. WTF? This had better be the best damn cupcake I've ever had, and I bake some pretty mean all natural organic cupcakes!
We head to the record shop making fun of our little confections which were individually wrapped in a plastic container with a huge sticker on top. That might of been my first clue- most of the price was going to the look of the cupcake, the packaging of the cupcake, the effing sticker. I made fun of it to the record shop guy and he agreed, 'better be the fucking best cupcake ever!'. Well, we hoped...flash forward to 9pm that night. We got out our cupcakes and bit in. My blueberry pancake cupcake had a nice taste, but for $4 freakin 50 I would of thought that the trick of dousing the shrivelled little blueberries in flour first so they didn't sink to the bottom of the cake would of been on the bakers mind. But it wasn't. The cake was moist, the frosting was mapley, but overall not the best cupcake I've ever had. Sigh.

Fartbomb (cat at bottom of page) still has conjuncitivitis. He's not doing well with the stupid gel we have to smoosh in his poor eyes and tries to bite me every 12 hours. So I read up on the great curing powers of ACV. Yes, apple cider vinegar. Now not only does he have goopy eyes, swollen eyes, but now he reeks of vinegar. Awesome.
My cat hates me.
