last night

Went out drinking and dancing last night with Matt and some of his friends. I don’t really do this anymore… well, not like I used to in my late teens and early twenties. It was funny reminiscing about some of the old hot spots that used to be in the Dallas area. I could only think of one, and two of the names that it held, but one of the other people in our group remember some that I had forgotten about – going back to the days when the whole country dancing thing was cool to me.

It is funny how people act when drunk, myself included. I talk more. I am more open with my thoughts. I try and control this as best I can. In the past couple of months I have seen some people get way too intoxicated and put themselves in situations that I would never consider at those times of weakness, especially when there are cameras present. I don’t want to get too stupid.

Next weekend will be the bachelorette party. Someone ratted me out on what I wanted to do so Stacy is in control now of her own party. Fine by me. I got pew decorations to make.

more on the dress

I went to the butcher seamstress this morning. The dress is looking less like a beast and more like a dress. I still hate the color. I need to get started on the pew decorations, and I have been saying this for a few weeks now. I also need to go tanning as my color and the color of the dress don’t go well together.

the dress

The dress that I am to wear in the upcoming wedding fits everyone but me. I can’t help but hate this dress. It is mauve. I hate mauve. It has been way over done. It is not strapless, but is cut high on the shoulders so it might as well be. This means strapless bra. Once again, a hard-to-shop-for-item for me. Finally, the dress put me through hell yesterday – I had originally bought the biggest size they had since the thing was fitting funny and was going to need to be taken apart and put back together again. Got to the seamstress and was told that this dress was too big – that I would loose all of the beading and design if it were to be altered. This was in Plano. I go to work for a bit (Dallas) then drive to Grapvine to exchange the dress, which I am lucky they had. The I drive back to Plano to the seamstress. She is now working with that one, letting it out so I can go in for another fitting so that it may be put back together to fit me, the oddball, rather than the average normal person.

almost over

This biology class will be over tomorrow and I could not be happier. I will have a lab science class over with after a month. The past two days I have gotten up late and gotten there even later. The way I see it I have been there more than alot of the other people through this whole thing so there is my justification for being late. The final is at 8am tomorrow. I will be on time for that.

My brain is scattered right now. I tried to get invitations for the shower earlier this week at Near and Far but found out that they did not carry any this year – last year, yes; this year, no. Hopefully Hallmark will have something cute.

All the wedding stuff, along with the holidays, has me distracted.

Time for lunch.

phone pic

Matt has my picture on his phone. I am thinking that is cool.

girly party

Just added a PayPal button for the bachelorette party that I am planning for my sister, even though she is making me wear mauve at the wedding (yuck). If you know her and want to help in sending her out with a BANG then feel free to give to the cause. All proceeds will go to the party – regardless of however much there is. I have also added this for the benefit of those that are on the guest list – we are doing all the work; all we ask is for a contribution and the pleasure of your company. I am not giving out details until later as I want this to be a suprise.

Also, if you are a friend of Stacy’s or know her, and think that you might enjoy our little bit of mayhem, email me about coming. Girls only please! Girl night – NO BOYS ALLOWED!

UPDATE: There is going to be a prize for the person who contributes the most… regardless of who they are or where they live. It will be in the spirit of the party as well as computer geekiness. That is what you get when you get a computer geek to do something.

I recently received an email with the following comment:

Most people who listen to NPR are overly pretentious. Just my observation. Anyone who can put up with Diane Raign has got to be. I know I am going to get some emails about that remark…

Before anything else, is is spelled Rehm.

I am not going to identify this person (who in their right mind would take credit for a statement like this since the reverse bashing is soooooo easy) but I would like to say one thing – I listen to NPR.

One more thought… maybe…. just maybe if the person who wrote this email listened to NPR or tried in other ways to expand their train of thought beyond the miniscule circle they are in, this email would have never been wrtten in the first place.

But then again, if it wasn’t painfully obvious that said person was trying to push her own interests of a new business venture on a long list of others (a business that will probably crash and burn since I doubt the proper contacts are there) I don’t know what is.

if I tell you I will die

If I were to go into the details that led to this post I think Stacy just might kill me. To avoid such a painful death I am just going to put this up and leave out the juice.

Right click and “Save Target as…” on this link. This is a commercial from SNL. Women will appreciate this one the most.

UPDATE: This may require the DivX codec.

UPDATE: Click here to get said codec.

thoughts and revelations

You know the saying about putting two and two together? You know how sometimes an event that is post another event can trigger thoughts that will make you put two and two together? I had one of those today.

There is no need to mention the details, and I am better off not mentioning those or the names that go with them. They don’t need the annonimity; I am just in a good mood. I am just happy to have the further self-claification that typically comes with time. Not to mention, give them enough rope and they will hang themselves.
