Thats all folks

I love my job have I ever told you that?  I recently got promoted.  That came with a nice little raise and my own cubicle back! Yes I am back in the cube life.  No more pit for me.  I have worked here for 2 years and in that time, we have never had any strict internet policies.  I've been able to browse the world wide webs freely without any guilt or consequence, of course I only did this when all my work was done ;)  But now we have a policy.  We have a very strict internet policy.  So I will only be able to blog from home.  That includes writing and reading blogs.  This makes me very sad because I do not feel like I am guilty of wasting time at work.  I am always caught up, I am even usually asking for more work to do!  So anyway. I'll keep reading and writing and responding but just be patient with me. 
Thank you.

found it!

SO here I am at the bubba gump place, we didnt eat here but we all took our pictures, Sun was in my face so I'm squinting like a dork. 

Us girls after the show.  Meg said its hard to keep her eyes open when there is a gallon of makeup on them.  Also she puts her hand on my head?
Heck ya!!!
Just excited to be with her. 

Kate and Meg.  For some reason I didnt even get one good glam shot of me and Kate. Epic failure, sorry kate.  

I have more pictures but I'll do another post later :)

I totally stole this idea from Brookes blog but I thought it was really cute and creative to do Way Back When-sdays. I know its thursday but I'll do it regularly on Wednesdays from now on. Sorry Brooke I'm a dirty dirty thief.

So my Way Back When picture for the day is:

These were exactly 1 year ago on March 26th. I was working the night shift at that time in my life so I would usually sleep in til about 11, roll around with kitties for a while, shower and make breakfast. 1 egg, hashbrowns, toast and orange juice. Then off to work at 2 pm. I still look the exact same. Boring huh?

poetic tragedy

Does anyone have any advice or awesome recipes for using a rice cooker?

I tried last night and my rice came out tasting like SUCK!! Not sure what I did wrong. I have a pretty fancy rice cooker, thank you Wolfgang Puck, and I want to put it to good use. I've always been really bad at cooking rice for some reason I always fail. Always. Unless its rice a roni which I am trying my hardest not to eat anymore. Even the garden vegetable flavor has chicken fat in it so probably wise to avoid.

Also, lent has ended early for the folks here at Sorenson. Kristen is eating chocolate, Liz is eating cookies and I am currently sipping on a niiiice warm cup of coffee. Good luck to all of you who are staying strong! Um Jesus loves you and stuff!! Just a reminder, no I'm not catholic. Obviously.

I can not currently find the cord to upload all the pictures that I took but no worries I'll find it soon.  

In the meantime I found this gem. Or shall I say, motivation for chin exercises? 

So there you have it folks. 

Also, its not flannel so please stop saying that.

That is all.

I am absolutely overwhelmed with so many different feelings at the moment. I get to fly to California tonight to see my sister and to be part of the audience for American Idol where one of my best friends has the chance of lifetime to do what she loves; sing. I am so excited to see the people I love! I haven't seen Kate for way too long. She is so nice to come and pick me up and take me every where. How lucky am I? Everyone needs to watch and vote for Megan. She deserves this more than anyone I know!

Thinking about flying really hurts my stomach though. Or maybe its the snickers bar I just ate. Hungry? Why wait.

Wish me luck folks.

traveling corpse

I know someone who attends funerals regularly in Salt Lake City for imaginary people who died in other states. True story. Traveling corpses.

I watched the movie Quarantine recently. Anyone seen it ? Eh? It was epic. So freaking scary I was literally shaking the whole time. Kate you would HATE this movie. I even screamed out loud at one point and the cat on my lap gave me some good scratches. If you're into horror and gore, go check it out... If not... well I wouldn't check it out.

I'm going to California in a few days to be in the audience on American Idol. Make sure you tune in and watch for my dorky little face. I'm sure i'll be crying I always cry when she sings.

I took Elton to the vet today because he keeps getting huge dread-like/balls/matts of fur around his neck. He has such long hair its hard to keep that from happening but I need to be better about it. When I was getting ready to take him I stepped in a steaming pile of cat shit that my other sweet sweet creature Coop left for me. I proceeded to call him many ungodly names and I think I vomited in my mouth a little at one point whilst cleaning it up. People keep asking, "Well how do you know it was Coop?" I just know. Elton would never do that to his mother, never.

So.... my day has so far began with cat shit on my foot, and a chai latte. It is up to me and only me to make this day go better :)

P.s. I love my mom.

its ok its cruelty free

So as a vegetarian I get asked a lot of stupid questions like:
  1. Oh my gosh what do you eat??
  2. But how do you get your protein?
  3. Dont you miss it though?

I understand its not a lifestyle choice everyone is comfortable with but come on kids, what do I eat? All the same shit I ate before minus meat. Its really quite simple I still eat pizza, tacos, soup, sandwiches, casseroles, spaghetti, and cupcakes. Especially cupcakes.
My mom, bless her heart, once offered me a turkey burger because she didn't think that turkey counted as meat. We joke about it all the time at my house :) I love you mom.
I was browsing recipes today on cooks.com and I just typed in vegetarian and hit search. It brought up almost 400 results which I thought was great! Most of them are chilis or lasagnas and I came across a recipe entitled "Ground Turkey Loaf Vegetarian" and it called for a pound of ground turkey! I thought it was hilarious, its not just my mom who thinks turkey doesnt count!!

That is all.

I will most likely never get cancer of the colon because I regularly eat brussel sprouts.

Thank you.

long time no check city

Today I am wearing shoes that make me bleed just because I really like them. I need to invest in more realistic logical shoes.

So I'm practicing Lent. I know I'm not Catholic but it never hurts to give something up or make a positive change in your life right? I had a pretty serious list of things I was giving up but its kind of been shortened because I am weak. Mainly i'm giving up coffee and soda. I am TRYING to give up swearing but its proving difficult. It actually makes me quite sad now that I'm more aware of what i'm saying and I realize that swears are a big part of my vocabulary. I'm sorry mom and dad. I'm trying I promise. I'm also trying to eat better. I recently fell in love with apples which is cool I guess. You know what they say, an apple a day... keeps... something away.

Anyway. I spent the weekend in southern Utah and it was absolutely beautiful. Weather was great! I took a lot of pictures but most of them were film so I need to get those developed. I'll make another post with some of the pictures I did with my digital camera. I wanted to post some that Seth took but the files are all way too big and my computer freaks out when I try.

Everyone make sure you watch American Idol tomorrow night, my fair lady Megan still has a chance so lets cross our fingers. I miss her so so very much its killing me.
