My work

I think the blanket is coming along nicely. I'm hoping to finish it relatively soon. Pics to come soon.

I think I have ADD because I get bored with it very easily.

I'm thinking about opening my own etsy shop. What do you think?

Oh, anyone know how to get rid of a fever blister quickly? I need it gone by Monday (I'll hopefully tell you why tomorrow...)

Why are men so afraid of us?

I'm reading <i>I am an Emotional Creature</i> by Eve Ensler. Read it.

My friend T picked it up to see what I was reading and promptly put it back down. He saw the words Vagina Monologues. He said it was a "chick book". I wanted to punch him in the face.

I want to yell so loudly about our awesomeness, our power, our beauty. I want them to understand that we are women. Do not fear us.

It makes me angry when men belittle me, put me down, make fun of me when I tell them a feminist.

I don't want to speak to soon. I'm afraid I'm a fraud. I'm afraid to speak out for fear of not knowing what I am talking about. I don't want to look like a fool, but I want them to know they are wrong.

Why are they scared of us?

Book Whore

Hi, I'm a book whore.

Really. I am.

Coffee. Book. Knitting. They are my weaknesses. Don't ever ask me to give them up.

Today, I bought 5 books, even though I have books I haven't read yet. I don't don't know why I do it. Maybe I love books to much.

What are your weaknesses?

I needed to start two weeks ago

No, not what you're thinking at all.

I've decided to undertake a fairly large project.

I am making Monica and Lucas's wedding present. I have decided to knit them an afghan. A friend help me pick the pattern. It's going to be so pretty. I'm modify the pattern a little to make it more sturdy. Now, I'm just waiting on the yarn to come in. I also need to buy needles. I've using Lions Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in sky blue and a size 13/36" needle. I can't wait to get started. The shower is scheduled for April 10 so this will be my focus for the month or so. If it comes out great, I might just make one for myself lol. I'll keep y'all updated on my progress.

So much for today

It occured to me a few weeks ago that I would be working Mardi Gras.....all day and night.

Yeah, fun, I know.

I guess people have nothing better to do than come to the movies today. Most businesses are closed. I wish I could say that I went to parades this year and partied with the rest of the Cajun population. Sadly, I did not. That's okay though. I didn't have to fight the streets for a parking spot or the dunkin' crowds for a good spot and maybe some beads. Maybe next year.

Now, let's talk about tomorrow. If you are Catholic, like I am, so begins the season on Lent. Yes, let's give up something we otherwise would not live without for 40 days in hopes it will makes us better people and bring us closer to God. That's Cathoics for ya!

I'm giving up ice cream and really going to start going to church. If you know me and ice cream, this may be hard for me. I could eat ice cream all the time. I've ate it for breakfast once. Yeah, so.....let's see what you eat when there's nothing else. Don't judge me! As far as the church things goes, I've wanted to go back to church for a while now. I don't really know what's been stopping me (okay, so maybe I do....sleeping and laziness have beaten me thus far).

What are you giving up?

Lovely card

That's the card that Hayley sent me. I love getting snail mail. Do you?

It just keeps coming

Man, I had this great post set up for today until something else came up.

I guess I'll get to what I wanted to talk about tomorrow.

Now, on to my story about what happened tonight at the mall...yeah, you heard me...the mall.

Victoria Secret, to be exact.

M came into town this weekend, and we all had a great time hanging out on Saturday. During the day, we went to the mall and shopped. I even bought stuff!! That never happens. I really needed bras so I bought two from Victria Secret. I tried them on at the store and they seemed to fit. I wore one to work last night. Bad idea. It ended up being too small. I kept having to fix it all night. So annoying!!

After work today, I figured I was going to return them and get a bigger size. I went back to Victoria Secret and asked to be fitted. The sales associate called someone else to help me because she was busy doing something else. I told the lady that did help me that I needed to be fitted. She then asked what size I thought I wore. I told her that the bra I had on was a 36DD. She looked at me and said they didn't carry any larger than that size in the store. She didn't offer any more help than that, not even the fitting I asked for. She didn't really seem to even want to help me. I got my refund and left the store. I went back to my car, after getting food, and cried. Just what I needed. So, I have no new bras, which I deperatly need, and still have no idea what size I am. I tried using the tape measurer but that didn't seem to come out right; there's no way I'm a B and my bust measured 41"...yeah, great.

Any advice on what to do?? I really need a new bra, like now!

Back to me

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. The Saints winning the Super Bowl just means great things are going to happen. One being I'm going to stick with this haha. Yeah, great things are going to happen.

On another note......

The weather down here is just down right ridiculous. Really???? It has to be cold, wet and rainy with a chance of sleet/snow??? Thanks, Mother Nature. That's just wrong to do to people in the south. I wish I were home right now. Instead, I'm at work. I like that I can post from anywhere, though.

For those of you who read this regularly (yay for you!!), I slept at my apartment last night!! I know that sounds silly to you, but it's sort of a big deal for me. When I moved into my apartment, I had full intentions of living there by myself, being me, doing my own thing. Well, that didn't work out like I had hoped. I started spending more and more time at the boyfriends house. It was just like I lived there. Wait, don't you have your own apartment, with your own bills and things, you ask??? Yeah, I do. I think I've gotten through to myself that I need to live at my place, that I don't need to be with him 24/7. I need to get back to me.
