"Why don't you be the writer, and decide the words I say."

I don't have anything in particular to say, so instead, I'm just going to spam you with a bunch of random crap. Think of it as a glimpse into my messed up mind. If you leave traumatized, all the better. And I'm thinking that since I've been at such a loss for things to write about lately, maybe you could suggest some things...

* First of all, I received a few awesome awards and I've been too lazy to post about them. The first is from Shannon.

I've received this award once before, so I won't force 7 more random facts upon you, but just admire Shannon's skillz! That is quite possibly the sexiest blog award of all time!

ETA: I lied. I'm bored so I'm going to shove some more randomness down your throat. Also, I'm a greedy jerk and forgot to pass on the award. 

1) I got an Easter Basket today filled with 100 calorie snack packs, granola bars, goldfish crackers, and fruit snacks. It legitimately made me happier than a big basket of candy would have.
2) One of my cats pooped on my bedroom floor this morning. -_-
3) I hate wearing socks. Barefoot all the way! (Except for in tennis shoes. But sometimes I'm lazy and don't feel like looking for a pair, so I'll go without. Whatev.)
4) I eventually want to get a half-sleeve tattoo.
5) I have a bit of an ant phobia. 
6) I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies.
7) I'm a big fan of, what I like to refer to as, old lady candies. Spearmints and peppermints, butterscotch discs, those strawberry candies with the jelly stuff inside, orange slices, spice drops...

I'm passing this on to Bri, because she's is HILARIOUS, and can always brighten whatever crappy day I might be having. Plus, she wrote a song about my dad. It doesn't get much better than that.
I'm also passing it on to Rachel from ChunkyKnubbyNavel. I know I passed it on to CKN before, but this goes specifically to Rachel. Not only has she become one of the most incredible friends/blessings in my life, but she's also super hilarious and blogs WAY too infrequently. Maybe everyone could do me a favor and go hound her to write more... Yeah? Kthx.

The other award is from Apfel, which she doled out FOREVER ago, but I'm a crappy friend and have neglected to share it yet.

Thankfully, there are no requirements for this award, other than being awesome.

[X] Awesome
[   ] Not Awesome

* This is my friend Kaitlyn. She is amazing, and beautiful, and incredibly strong, and has been a MAJOR blessing in my life. Get to know her. Right now. Do it.

She made this wicked picture that makes me all nostalgic. Love it? I thought so.

* I bought Lor some Dunkaroos, but I ate them.

* The dreams edition of Alexandra's zine is out. GO BUY A COPY! I even submitted something this time, so why wouldn't you want a copy??

* And lastly, these songs have been in my head like crazy lately. Enjoy!

*OH! Also! I owe Harley an email. Feel free to hound me about it so I don't keep putting it off.


  1. I kind of hate awards because of all the work they require. But I guess I'd prefer to have people thinking I deserve them than not so that I don't have to deal with them.

  2. I bought Lor some Dunkaroos, but I ate them.

    Love the hidden snarksquad shoutout <3

    & that remix of Eyes On Fire is really cool - I hadn't heard it before. So thank you for introducing me to it.

  3. How can you go barefoot all the time? Brrrr. My dogs get cold.
    I love 100 calorie Snack packs! But I usually eat two at a time. Oops.

  4. Your Easter basket sounds kinda like mine. I got granola bars, too. But I also got chocolate...and cat food for Esme.

  5. @Lauren Quit whining and suck it up! :)

    @Nicole Snark Squad is pretty much my new favorite thing of ever.

    @Laurenne I come from a long line of hillbillies. :)

    @Angie I did get some chocolate, too. And I can't believe we forgot to get something for our cats this year!

  6. hey hey!

    um....... me = jealous.

    i didn't get ANYTHING for easter.

    church was off the hook though. man, my mom used to make the BEST easter baskets. from scratch, not those pre-wrapped ones!

  7. Houuuuund!

    Just kidding! I'm glad you got lovely awards! You deserve them!

  8. Congrats on the award! And WHOA. You have officially got me hooked to the last son gyou put up.


  9. @Brit I would have gladly traded you my Easter basket for an off-the-hook church service. Mine sucked. :/

    @Harley Thank you. ♥ I think I'm on my way right now to write that up. Again.

    @Eeshie Hello! Yeah, that song won me over in about .2 seconds. It's pretty much been constantly playing for the past 3 days.

  10. I used to really like those orange jelly slices (and especially the mint leaf-shaped ones, yum) but I feel the same way about old lady candy! And thanks for shouting out the zine, dear :)

  11. No Star Wars movies... You're not really missing anything.
