The domestic goddess in me made delicious chicken for dinner last night.  Then I made breakfast for the week and set the timer on my coffee pot.  Took a shower. 

This morning I woke up and watched Robin Meade while eating breakfast, sipping coffee and stretching in that way you do when you have all the time in the world....

Then I went to work.  Sad emoticon.

I'm sorry.  I gotta do it.   "AWWW!!!!"

My niece, Abbie, at Disney World:

She looks just like Sarah did.

I sent this to Fred in an email and then it made me smile because it sounded so great:

I want cake and ice cream.  Like old school, kid's birthday party cake and ice cream where the icing is pure sugar and there’s lots of it and everyone wants a corner piece and the vanilla ice cream melts all over the paper plate and you have a small plastic spoon that makes your fist look really big as you scoop.

I'm working on new nicknames for Preston - thoughts regarding the following:

1- Tonka
2- PeeDawg
3- Pee McCee
4- Sir. 
5- Preston the Bull
6- McDapper

Odds and Ends

- Need a haircut. 
- I read Early Bird, by Rodney Rothman.  Enjoyed it.  I don't wanna get old.
- Played in poker league last night.  Throat hurts from all the smokers.  I sound like a Republican.  SIGH.
- I need shoes and shirts.
- I deserve curly fries.
- I spent some time googling my mother and finally found an alumni site made by one of those women (Comic Sans) and it included all of the yearbooks.  So then I emailed the photos to my mother, sister and brother, but resisted the temptation to share them with the rest of the world because I am not a complete asshole. 

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is very pretty.

I live in a fourplex with a garage apartment in the back yard.  I know there is a tenant because I can hear him/her moving around sometimes as I'm getting in or out of my car.  To my knowledge I have NEVER EVER seen this person.  It's been two months.

One of the poker guys told me I seemed Dallas.  This was supposed to be a backhanded compliment, but since he was comparing me to mid-cities/Arlington, I'll take it.  Also it's really just the cool glasses that the lovely 20 year-old Target Clerk picked out for me from the "Youth" section because I have bad taste and a wee little face.

If I can't get my hands on some curly fries, I'm going to have some ice cream and justice.

I owe my niece $72.

Rad Things - My boss commissioned an artist in Malawi for 15 paintings depicting Malawi culture and life, 10 of which have arrived.  On Friday he said, pick one.  I'm so excited.  They are stunning and I don't know which one I want but I'm going to decide soon and then I'll have to get it framed, which is going to cost me a bit, but it's going in the dining room in that large gray square that just has the profile project I made years ago. 

I want to have people over for dinner.  I need to clean first.  Also we're all on diets from the birthday/St. Patrick's Day celebrations this month.  So maybe a mixed grill?  I wonder if these unsuspecting guests can be strong-armed into board games?

It's storming.

I heart Manchego.

I have consumed at least 80 ounces of water today, probably more.

You know, given the facts, I think it's inconsiderate to use quotes in this headline, First-Known Photo of Anne Frank's "True Love"

Today I had lunch with Ali and bought new running shoes.  It's a full day here in Dallas, my friends.

I have decided to take next Thursday and Friday off so that I may welcome 30 into my life without the added pain of work.  Instead, I'm going to have Kelly Days, which so far include:

DMA trip
Indian food or that Cuban restaurant off of Knox, close to Chuy's
Trip to the Angelika

The End.

So I wake up and my big toe hurts.  That's random.  Whatever.  I've decided it's my big toe's way of saying, "Don't go to the gym tonight."
Anything you say, big toe.

We're in the midst of a Woot off, my friends. I love woot off days.  www.woot.com

I get to Wendy's house for Thursday Night Dinner and Rick says, "and how many Valentine cards did you get today?" and it was elementary school all over again, back before you had to give everyone in your class a card and there was always that Jennifer with so many cards that they wouldn't fit in her perfectly decorated valentine card pouch. "None."  Then we drank a lot and told awesome stories with Ali's neighbors George and Lynn.  George was her Junior High teacher and he confirmed that I went to the tougher Arlington junior high so it is official I'm a badass and Ali went to pansy school.  SUCK IT ALI. 

I need an adventure.  and ice cream.  and a visit from the designated hugger from that video for Everyday.

I am addicted to the furniture for sale page on Craigslist.
I am addicted to Fage Greek Yogurt with honey.

I've been using Rad fairly often for about a month now and it seems to be catching on.  I'm very proud.

So Mychelle is getting me the coolest birthday gift in the WHOLE WORLD.  She's taking me to see Dolly Parton.  I am really excited!

I'm loving my new place.  i got some rugs, but need more.  It's all hardwoods.  Target seems to have the best prices, but limited selection.  More online.  Apparently I should swing by the Rooms to Go outlet in Arlington... we'll see.

Stupid Girl Scouts and their delicious cookies.  I HATE THEM.

I hate packing and I hate cheese sauce on food and I hate smoothie places and I hate the fact that Tuesday Morning has the most gorgeous rug I've ever seen but it's twice my budget.  EFF.

Also - I hate that when you IM someone, it will say "So and so is typing" because then they know how long it takes you to compose your words and so if I start typing something, delete it, type it again, delete it and then just type, "LOL" they know that took me, real time, 72 seconds.   I'd rather just talk on the phone.  I had an IM chat with my brother and sister-in-law, who will be celebrating their 6th anniversary tomorrow.  It's also my grandfather's 90th.

Things of note -

I'm tipsy because I decided if I had to pack, I should get to drink wine, so I had two glasses.  Decided it was time to stop packing before I pass out.

I get a fever during my menstrual cycle.  That makes sense, but confuses me still.

My mother has gone insane, which is okay because it has resulted in her taking better care of her health.
