It's been a good two weeks since I checked lj. Sorry outdated technology I guess facebook has won. Maybe I'll have some issues and post later. Adam got mad at me tonight but no big deal he got over it so no entry or drama there. I age next month. Maybe I'll be sad then.
Drunk. Happy. Hair awesome. Called Adam my night. Omg. Where start. Called 911 ambulances and ten goddamn hot cops. Interrsting night. Tweaker neighbours went bye bye in ambulances.


I am home from Arizona. I had a good time visiting Jen and Adam. I haven't the energy to write more now on that but maybe tomorrow.

I forced myself not to think about James much on the trip so I wouldn't miss him. It worked but holy crap seeing him again the minute I got back was just about the best thing ever. I love my stupid baby so much.

He's sleeping cuddled up next to me and all feels right in the world again. If only it was sunny...


Feb. 5th, 2010

I just had a total real life experience. And it probably gave me hepatitis.

I decided to take greyhound from Portland to Tucson seeing as how the ticket was practically free. Bad idea. You get what you pay for which means for me I got a bus that broke down in the middle of nowhere California. It was electrical so the lights and hazards didn't work so we sat there hopefully in the safe shoulder of I5 in the pitch black.

Then our replacement bus went the wrong way.

By this time in our 5 hour delay a vagrant teenager had befriended me despite my not talking to him at all his hair smelled like sewage.

Then while tryin to get off the bus I was between a Mexican and a black woman. Mexi realized it was cold outside so she decided not to get off the bus. Black girl got shovey. Words flew. I ducked. Fight ensued! Finally some entertainment around here.

Now I'm in la sitting next to an ugly chick whose going to Hollywood to become an actress. Right.
I want to crawl into a washing machine and soak in bleach for days. And then some dinner.

Best Thing Ever

Did anyone see Jimmy Kimmel on Jay Leno's show last night? It was priceless.

Leno "Have you ever ordered anything offline before?"
Kimmel "Like NBC ordered your show offline?"

then later:

"Jay, all you have in life is cars. Conan and I have families to take care of. Take your $300 million and leave our shows alone!"



All these people that say the first year of marriage is the hardest are doing it wrong. In 3 weeks I'll have been married for a year, and it was a piece of cake.

If you're fighting constantly the first year, here's a clue: YOU WEREN'T READY TO GET MARRIED. I am so sick of 19 year olds consoling other 19 year olds that marriage gets easier eventually. No, it won't. If there are issues to begin with, they don't just magically go away. You just get old and accept your crappy life.

Personally, I think we should tax the crap out of marriage and divorce. It should be like $1000 to get a marriage license and twice that to apply for divorce. That way, maybe some of these young ones will think twice before fleeing to the aisle in the hopes it fixes their terrible on/off relationship. It won't. It will just lead to infidelity. Maybe if it was expensive to get married people would think twice about it.

I'm just so glad I am actually happily married. We have our spats, and at times we have our nasty fights, but we always always work things out, and I haven't been stressed out about my relationship once since we got married. Granted, being apart sometimes sucks cuz I get so effing bored and overwhelmed, but at least I don't have to worry about us. It's very nice to have all my problems in life instantly halved, because there is someone else to help me deal with them.

In other news, I have a ticket to go to Tucson to visit Adam the first week of Feb which will conveniently be our anniversary. The downside is I have to work 6 flipping nights in a row, in order to get the following week off. Time to download more movies to my ipod...



I just uploaded a ton of pictures from Xmas.

I am too lazy to reupload them here, but you can go look with a simple click!

A little look-see!

Yeah that's right, my family is filled with good looking people.


2009 Recap

What age did you turn this year and how did you spend your birthday?
Twenty something.  Definitely mid-twenty something.  Same as next year.  And the next year, and next, and next.  Definitely. 

I spent it fat and miserable and waiting for labor pains. 

What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before?
Got married, had a baby, took the train across the country, un-quit my job, turned boring.

Did anyone you know give birth? Did anyone you know die?
I gave birth.  That sucked.  My grandma died.  That ruined holidays. 

Tell us about some noteworthy things done by people you know.
Umm.. what?  My friends do thing?  Ha ha.  They are more domesticated than I am.  Okay lets see... Jen traveled a bunch, which is cool, although not particularly noteworthy unless she writes some exaggerated memoirs and goes on Oprah about it.  Adam joined the army, which is kinda noteworthy, and probably shocking to most.  James became a real live person, which is pretty fucking noteworthy, as that's like.. you know.. whoah. 

Do any traveling?

Yeah, to Las Vegas, South Carolina, Florida, New York, Seattle, and day trips around here.  I never leave the country anymore :(

What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
A house of my own.  And a goddamn padded bank account. 

What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

Feb 5:  I got married.  It wasn't particularly interesting or exciting, I'll just remember it cuz, you know, it happened, and it made me laugh.
April 14:  I had a motherfucking baby sans hospitals and doctors and pain meds.  Unpleasant.  But kinda cool.

The rest of the year was mostly a void.  I spent the first half pregnant and the last half a single mom.  Other than the travel, it wasn't a great year.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I successfully had a baby. 

What was your biggest disappointment or failure?
Ask Cousin.  She's better at keeping track of my silly screw ups than I am.

Did you suffer illness or injury?

Well, pregnancy is one long illness.  Birth is one intense injury.  Those things happened.  A few minor runny noses due to my impaled immune system.  And my gallbladder had to go, so there was that trip to the ER and surgery. 

What was the best thing you bought? Best gift you were given?
iPod touch.  It's sweet.  I was also given a lot of vodka.  I'd question this, except as it was mostly grey goose, I'd like to think it just means people think I'm that classy.  

Whose behavior merited celebration?

Oh, all my friends really.  Adriann and Eric for keeping me sane during my single mother days.  Justin for helping me out when I was poor and homeless in NYC.  Jen for general Awesomeness in NYC.  The wife for helpful mutual favors.  Aunt Di for being there for the birth and to help with James and make me feel a part of a family.  My grandmother for telling me I look fat. 

Whose behavior did not?
Adam at graduation, my family off and on, Brittany's brother for stealing all my shit, and I'm sure my own self at times

Where did most of your money go?
To cover other people.  I think I'm owed close to $5K. 

What did you get overly excited about?
My baby.  Adam coming home for Christmas. 

Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder? Happier, I was pregnant this time last year.
ii. thinner or fatter? Hard to say.. pound wise, I'm skinnier because I am no longer pregnant.. but I also am not back to pre-baby, so fatter in genearl.
iii. richer or poorer? Probably the same, except with a LOT more income coming in. 

What do you wish you’d done more of?
Save up.  Run. 

What do you wish you’d done less of?

How will you be spending the end of the year?
It IS the end of the year.. Dec 31.  I still have no idea.  But there is champagne in the fridge. 

With whom did you spend the most time on the phone with?

Definitely Adam, once he was finally able to use his phone in Arizona for AIT (Army training stuff). 

Did you fall in love in 2009?
I do not acknowledge that word.  I fell into a relationship, that's for sure. 

Best TV shows and/or website? (passive entertainment)
Well, I watched the most of The Office, Dexter, and various other watch instantly stuff on Netflix.  I like Two and Half Men *cries in shame*  Intervention is always a win. 

Best video game?
Mario for the Wii.  Except I haven't played it. 

What song will always remind you of 2009?
Britney's Circus album.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2009?
I gave up on my own clothes and started wearing Adam's. 

What political issue stirred you the most?
the Obama Savior complex.  He's a douchebag just like the last president. 

Whom did you miss?
Lots of people.

Who was the best new person you met?
I guess James.  

Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?

Not in a serious sense.

What did you want and get?
A big fat diamoned

What did you want and not get?

A house

A valuable life lesson you learned in 2009?
Wrap it before you tap it.  I guess I technically learned that one last year. but it didn't sink in until this one.

Quote to sum up your year.

"I've taken them before."


Also, William Shatner. 

he ate my heart and then he ate my BRAINS

Lady Gaga: Monster. Best song ever?


obama fail

To all those who voted for Obama:

Did you still feel full of unwavering support for your "hope and change" president when he announced he was sending 30,000 more troops to war?  Still think he's going to follow through on his pre-election promises?  People basically seemed to have no reaction at all to his "lets keep this war going!" message.  Even Adam, who is going to be GOING to war, was all "whatever."

Does anybody else feel it is slightly ironic he won a Nobel Peace Prize?  I mean, come on.  If you're going to win a famous prize for peace, maybe you shouldn't be, oh, say, trying to EXTEND A WAR.  Politicians completely disgust me.

I don't really care about the war in Iraq or Afghanistan.  I know I should, since it directly effects me, but the main thing that bothers me about it is how Obama gets away with shipping 30K troops to war, and the country sort of looks the other way, but it was the other way, but it was OUTRAGE when Bush did it. OUTRAGE when Bush did it.

I don't like Bush, and I don't like Obama.  Palin is hysterical and amusing, so I have to like her for that.  McCain is old and dead.  Our VP... god, who IS our VP again? VP... god, who IS our VP again?  Oh yeah.  That bland Biden fellow.  What's he doing, anything?  Probably not.  Politicians are worthless.  Our government is bordering on worthless.  I'd vote it away completely if I could.  It makes me cry, seeing all my rights slipping away.  My god, in some states, it would have been illegal for me to have had James at home like I did.  I can't even imagine being FORCED to go to a hospital.  I wouldn't have done it.  Not because I'm against hospitals, I'm not, I work at one.  I'm just stubborn, and if I decide to have my baby at home, your petty law books aren't going to stop me.  Also, my midwife was awesome.

You know the only person in politics I like?  Stephen Colbert.
