I have the best kittens in the world.

This doesn't need to be a scary cat woman's foray into the many loves of her cats, but I thought it notable to mention the one thing that spawned this general consensus:

Holiday and I were cozying up on the couch when we both heard a startling sound in the kitchen - very reminiscent of an unwelcome intruder (but not, of course...).

Holiday jumped promptly off the couch, growled, and then marched into the kitchen to assess the situation.

Bitch has my back, and that's why I love her.

Awesome!

I just found this video in anticipation of another London trip... I was totally sitting just to the right of this shot in some old theatre chairs.

Joanna and the Wolf. She is... so bizarre.
May 26th at Old Blue Last in London (Shoreditch/Hoxton area).

Delayed Reaction

Saturday, March 27, 2010
I'm sitting here watching old videos from high school of christopher. He's been gone for nearly two years. And i'm just now sitting here crying, furious with him.

Why did you DO that?! You should still be here. You should still be here.

What was I thinking?

Wednesday, March 24, 2010
Why the hell did I agree to get up at 3am to take a friend to the airport so she can go to Hawaii?!

I'm sooooo stupid.

Men.. you so sexy.

Monday, March 22, 2010
I love the braveness of boys. Such an incredibly sexy trait. It seems their childlike quality of courageous adventure never disappears (well, let's exclude women from this inclusion)...

You should all exercise this more often... especially with the female of the species.

Sugar sugar.

I have eaten more sugar in the last three days than I thought was humanly possible. Brown sugar, white sugar, powdered sugar, frosting, root beer, apple pie, cookie, brownie, cinnamon roll.

dear god.
it's good i work out so much, but i need to knock it off. i'm going to have diabetes by the time i'm 30...

back to yogurt, almonds, mad greens and grilled chicken.

This is bad.

I have an itching problem caused by my surroundings and it is definitely not fixable for at least a few years because of all the necessary steps to get there.

g. dammit.

I feel like such a typical 20something girl. it was bound to happen sometime.

good thing i work in acupuncture and everyone and their mom is pregnant.

that's right, i have baby fever...ugh.

I'm not sure I can accurately express..

How perfectly wonderful a state I am in right now. Spring Break begins. My entire house is clean. Laundry is all done. Cooked a pot pie. Started a fire, and am flush to the couch (which i've converted into a squishy nap nest for the evening during a Colorado Snow Storm.

GLORIOUS!

Well, that's an interesting way to look at it...

I was just speaking with a girlfriend last night about how girls have this
perfect image of the guy they want to end up with, and somewhere along the
line, they found him, and he broke her heart.

Now, they're going from guy to guy, comparing them all to the one they lost, and so they all end up alone.
Not surprising... because the goal-driven women push and push and work to get to the top of their career chain, and often, succeed.

If this is possible in your work path, why can't it be true on your journey of love?

The biggest fear in life...

Sunday, March 14, 2010
Every day, I charge ahead with the anticipation of crawling into bed at the end of it bare-legged and exhausted. Every single night, my biggest fear rears it's ugly head and instead of surrendering to my most favorite vice, i anxiously lie awake wondering, 'will i sleep well tonight?'

What a petty thing to worry about. Sure, i've got my giant fears that creep up when I've too much thought (non-disclosure) but I can't rule the world if I don't get a solid night's rest.

Ironic, because if i just stopped worrying about it, I'd probably pass out, drooling, in a star shape, five minutes after hitting the proverbial hay.

So why can't I just let the anxiety go already...?

What the...

Why has no one told me about Pretty Lights?!

Brain Sex ID

Wednesday, March 10, 2010
Seems battle of the sexes is always on debate and now the BBC has offered a way to test the way your brain actually works.
Take the test here.

There are also a series of other tests and things (which I'm a total geek about) if you are looking to kill some time and find out more about how your body, mind, etc. work. Let me know how you do and we can exchange results...

This comes at a perfect time, as Body Worlds: Story of the Heart exhibit is coming back to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science this Friday, March 12th, and I am walking over from home that very afternoon to do a walk-thru! You can buy your tickets here.

Love... him.

Ouuuuuch

Here is where 10-miles out on foot and an hour+ of stair sprints up red rocks will get you.

In bed. Totally feeble.

Where is my house boy...?

Fluff

Friday, March 5, 2010
I am meeting the most amazing people in my Sports & Entertainment class... and here I am writing about "filler." I guess I put so much into school, then so much "sami" into work with all the patients, that I have to just space the brain when it comes to writing in here. It just feels like there's never a moment that doesn't involve some kind of lesson.

Always judging, always watching. Look at the baby, look at the baby.

One thing this year is slamming me with? Patience.

There's a lot of passive aggressiveness going on this week... and I'm wondering if that's something I"m putting out without knowing, or if I'm just on the ultra-receiving end and being super self-conscious.

It makes me want to crawl in my little crab shell and not bother trying to be "on" all the time...
I am human. Give me a break.

Holy WONDERFUL, Batman!

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Guess who just booked another show at the O2 in London on May 30th, right at the tail end of my Global Sports/Entertainment study?!?!




Squeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!!

If I heard correctly, Gaga scrapped her set I saw in San Fran and has an entirely different show... this will require some serious london dress shoppage...

Someone is seriously on my side this year...

A week in like.

Tuesday, March 2, 2010
Chili Mangos dipped in Dark Chocolate
Sleep
My new Cookbook from Myrpa
Drinking out of a Straw
Plain T-Shirts from Urban Outfitters
Not wearing a bra
How dreamy-eyed Maynard gets when i sing for him.
My very fabulous friends.
Being halfway through the semester.
The anticipation of a crapload of packages that are a result of way too much online shopping last week... :)
These shoes:




and finally...

Telling off jerks who act accountable, and wonderful and loving for a very substantial amount of time, then disappear into thin air and think they can solve everything by wishing you a happy birthday after not acknowledging you for months (yes, you. - you are a coward and a jerk and just remember, no matter where you move, your problems will always follow. you know why? because you're still there. you're great when you want to be... but you voted the wrong girl off your team. enjoy the deep south - we'll see you back here in a year when you think denver is once again your life solution).

This very short rant also reminded me of this, which still makes me grin even five years later. it's rare you can say exactly what you want when you want to...

that is all... :)

Arf!

I've always been insecure about my stomach. This is, after all, my measurement of my daily "worth/attractiveness/body acceptance" when I step in front of a mirror and view myself at a side profile...

Then, last week, I got a massage and we worked on my stomach muscles to release some serious back tension.

I have to say, canines have it figured out. I think i may abandon ship on insecurity and jump on board with having my belly rubbed on a regular basis... ahh, the simple joys.

I think this will bode especially well for me when/if i someday bear children...

If you haven't yet, you should probably try that out (the belly rub... maybe not the kids).

Monroe Sunday

Whirlwind cleaning/catch up on home life day.

Also playing while working:
How to marry a millionaire
Gentleman Prefer Blondes
The Seven Year Itch.


I never realized the last one was really a comedy... kind of clever for it's time.

I also have inadvertently invented a new Cliff bar by changing up some ingredients in my chocolate chip cookie recipe. kind of... bizarre, but delicious. Here's the recipe (with my mods):

1 cup wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup rolled oats, finely ground in a food processor
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
8 tablespoons cinnamon apple sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup White Bean Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #9 below)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries (soaked in apple juice)

bake 12 minutes at 375,
