400MG makes it all worth while

Apparently, if you go see the doctor for the common cold and make an idiot out of yourself thinking it's something more serious like typhoid fever or strep throat, you still get WAY better drugs.

Corner office

Wandering downtown with my camera and comfy shoes I came across lovely historical buildings such as this one. It reminded me of NYC, which reminded me of my cousin, which reminded me to smile.

Starbucks makes me happy. I'm not really sure if it's the coffee-house-on-the-upper-east-side decor, the save-the-environment-green aprons or the overly expensive speciality drinks. It could even be the free-for-your-garden coffee grounds that i've never even taken. Whatever it is, whenever I drink half of my 4 dollar and fifty cent beverage, I smile.

Time for a revamp.

So i've sort of rearranged and changed things around here. I now have some links available on the side thingy here ---> and some nice photo-esque things up there and I even got a new nifty little footer for all of y'alls enjoyment.

I want to say congrats to my friend Mel who had the courage this past week to change her life entirely.

Welcome back Marybeth to the wide world of the suck-you-in-until-the-wee-hours-of-the-morn' internet.

I am so sorry Heather that I couldn't make it to dinner tonight. I literally feel like something slimy crawled up out of my stomach, into my throat and got stuck there while swelling from the heat and causing my esophagus to constrict. Damn slug. I hope you had fun initiating the newest member of the my-husband's-gone-for-the-week-hang-out-with-me club.

I deleted a lot of old pics on here. I just wanted to start over with this nice new BIG sized photos and the other one's looked like thrift-store-rejects compared to the new one anyway. If you miss them, they can be found on:

This is the I-just-realized-I-used-too-many-hyphenations post. Hey, at least I capitalized my I's. Have a good night, my sad lonely never-talks-back internet world.

with my feet dangling in the water amidst the center of the city, I thought: wow. that's a really gothic building. Good thing I have my hand dandy camera.

what a good idea

The whole, go back to school, get your degree, finish what you started, get a better paying job, is all garbage.

I know, i know, it's great, i'm doing awesome, one more class down, five to go, but come off it, this really does suck. I mean, i have been lucky enough to not have to work while going to classes, been there-done that, it sucked even worse. And i can't get away from it. Even in my blog. It's there, haunting my very existance. I need a break. I actually WANT to go back to work. For 3 seconds i even thought about just having a kid so i wouldn't have to do anything at all and then i remembered that you can't just keep a kid in a glass bowl or tied up to the fence with a dish of water nearby.

finals already

3 weeks go by fast when you're forced to digest an entire semester of information. Friday is the final and then next week i'm working on my online class which will be done the week I go to Chicago. Needless to say I need to get ahead between now and then so I don't find myself up at 2 in an internet cafe whilst being hit on by star trek nerds on a night out.

Good news, in August it seems i'll be traveling thrice. Once to Chicago, once to Niagara Falls and once to Rhode Island. While in RI i'll get to see my grandmother, mother, stepfather, maybe my sister and kids, but most definately my cousin. Which is awesome. We're going to sit on the beach, sip Del's lemonade and listen to waves and screaming children. That might be my sister's kids.

Woof and Roll

hello internet.
i have some things to tell you.
i'm bored. you have nothing that amuses me anymore and i really should just shut you down and go study for my test tomorrow.
you're a really really bad listener. ok? jerk.
you sort of smell like lime. oh wait, that's the tostitos.
i like the TV better. it's shiny and pretty and it makes me happy.
yesterday i saw a crippled dog with a little roller machine strapped to it's hind legs.
it's raining like the bajeezus out there.
i worked out twice this week and both times i hated it.

i'll see you tomorrow.

a work trip i can join my husband on. we're going to the windy city in the beginning of august for four days. very excited. it's been a while since i was in chicago, oh, 7 years? anyway, i'm looking forward to revisiting and maybe even taking a boat tour of the bay or seeing a couple museums. and the pizza, oh the pizza. of course, last time i was there i was caught in a downpour 6 blocks from our meeting point and finally ended up paying an exuberant amount of money for a dark colored nike shirt.

busy bee

this past week i was in Rochester doing some freelance work. a few days and i've got one summer class paid off. it's nice. plus, i got to catch up with an old friend and stuff my face with some peanut butter and chocolate goodness at starbucks. you order this mammoth dessert thing and a mixed tall frothy delicious drink and only after you've paid do they give you a free sample of their newest ice cream flavor. it was a caffeine flood that my brain is still recovering from.

this weekend we painted the shutters on our house. or should i say repainted. it was the infamous painting fiasco of last summer. we had our shutters on sawhorses in the garage for two months last year. our neighbors were starting to mention our lack of window embellishments. this weekend one can only assume that when they saw us heading to our shutters with our power drill and ladder they all gasped or groaned. but we had them down and up in two days flat. goodbye stark and drastic white, hello warm and inviting buttercream.

my eye is red and burning and this morning i think i pulled an alien out of it.
