3 Months Til Xmas Haiku Friday

Where does the time go?
Fall brings with it holidays
And many birthdays
5 semester weeks
Securely under my belt
About a third through
Before you know it
Halloween and Thanksgiving
Christmas and New Years


Big Winner Humpday

Have you ever had a friend that was going to Vegas so you gave them a dollar and asked them to play it for you? I gave my friend Jangles $5 and wrote my name on it and wished her luck. I came back today to find that she made that five dollar bill into $46.75! That's like 9 times the money I gave her! Holler!



TMI Tuesday

1. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?
Neil Young

2. You seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?
On DVDs and music of course!

3. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?
Go to my brother's funeral and console my mother since her mother wasn't there to do so.

4. What is your favorite curse word?

5. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?
Mike Rowe (even linked to Google images so you can see why!)

Bonus (as in optional):You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?
The ability to have a rockin' hot bod at all times without worrying about diet or exercise.

Questions are from here.

Dear Randi XXXXXX:

Thank you for your recent stay and positive feedback regarding your visit to our hotel the Doubletree Richmond Downtown. We will share it with the team. We will also investigate the water situation in 516, as your husband said a "thirsty camel could have spit more out." We typically get better reviews on our water pressure, so we will investigate.

We sincerely appreciate your feedback from you, a valued customer. We hope to have another opportunity to serve you when your travels bring you back to Richmond.


John Cario
General Manager
Doubletree Hotel

TMI Tuesday

Forget the questions, here is an equation:

(Denim skirt + thighs that rub together)humidity + walking whilst sightseeing = chaffing

Put that under "Things I learned in Virginia"

Hump Day

This ol' blog has been pretty quiet lately. I don't want to be all bold and "quit" my blog but I don't know that daily posting is going to be occurring here any more. Frankly, I'm busy with school and nothing super exciting has been going on lately. I give a presentation today in one of my classes. I'm leaving for Virginia on Friday for a week. My first vacation since Berlin in May of 2008. Wow.
Going to see one of my best and oldest friends get married. We're going to see Richmond and Williamsburg and DC. You know, get some historical goodness going on. I suppose this is our "faux" honeymoon since we never went on one but I don't think I want to call it my honeymoon because to me, honeymoons mean tropical beaches and fruity drinks with paper umbrellas in them directly after the wedding. Not hot ass, humid Virginia in September - 3 months after our nuptials.

So yah. There you have it.

MORAL OF THAT STORY: If it's not there, don't fake it.
