never been a college graduate before

it's niiiiiiiice.

so thursday was my last exam, and friday i went in to do some freelance for a company downtown. nice part is they want me back monday and tuesday. already back contributing to the social economy.

friday we leave to go home for a week and a half and the awesome news is that our friends in florida will be back the same dates to visit family. we're already planning a day trip to nyc.

went to see chronicles of narnia. amazingly done. also bought a couple of the books on the way home. interested to reread the series since things are hard to remember when they span back to third grade.

behind these green eyes

3 finals to go.

in true celebratory fashion i plan to go shopping when all is said and done. christmas shopping for everyone, including me.

speaking of money i don't have. i made 250 bucks designing someone's small website. i don't even have to take care of the maintenance, i just had to design the skeleton (for class project even) and then hand it off to another designer.

my CDs came in the mail finally. i shouldn't say finally. BMG is really quick. the site and e-mail they send you says 5-7 days but it rarely takes that long. Aqualung, Robbie Williams, Casting Crowns and Zero7. Also got the new Kelly Clarkson for my husband. Seriously, he likes her. so weird. but my ipod is all filled up and ready to rock.

thanks for the new hip music Mel.

hey, anyone need a graphic designer?

i can cook. it's really not that hard. they have these things called recipes. they work pretty good too. seriously. some people had enough time on their hands to figure out different meals and how many and how much ingredients it needs, how long to cook it, how many people it serves, i mean, they thought of everything.

so far i've made some pretty awesome turkey spinach cheese meatballs (turkeyballs?), spinach artichoke dip, and a cheesecake (which really was a fiasco and i would contemplate ever making another one). who knows. maybe this will be the year my husband actually gains weight from my cooking, instead of losing it.

things you won't see in the city

• a full sized john deer tractor pulling out of the self service car wash.
• a live bait vending machine.

the invisible blog

for some reason my page isn't found. it's lost. out there in cyber space with no one to take care of it. i knew i should have written it's name in it's underwear.

oh, wait. there you are. why didn't you call me and tell me where you were?!?

snowfalls, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

we're in the midst of what would be called a blizzard if it were happening anywhere other than here. here, it's just lake effect snow. i woke up to over a foot of snow. i'm sick and it's cold out there so i haven't been brave enough to actually go measure it.

this is our back porch. that snow sits on a step that sits a few inches lower than the door. it has been snowing since yesterday afternoon with no break whatsoever. I can't even open the front door of our house. and i'm out of chicken soup. dang.

hello doctor

okay. so i'm totally and completely, even to the point of shamefully addicted to medical shows. Any show with anyone in scrubs i'll watch. Okay, any half-descent show with anyone in scrubs. ER is the tried and true. The show's never going off the air and someone either loses a hand or ends up in bed together on every show, so it's chuck full of excitement and tension. Then there's Grey's Anatomy. If you're not watching this, you should be. My favorite character of course is the surgical intern george, who's cute and shy, and has a crush on the lead actress, who will never end up with him even though it's the best thing that could ever happen to her. Not to mention patrick dempsey. dr. mcdreamy. yeah. this show should get grammys. or whatever they give to the desperate housewives.

to top it all off, Scrubs is back. whoever started that nasty rumor about the show being cancelled and then forcing me to believe it, should be shot. or at least forced to watch reruns of 'who wants to be a millionaire' with regis. i love scrubs. it's the overtly humorous side of death and malpractice. JD is deliciously geeky and the world in his mind is hilarious. Scrubs is back in january. the world is right again.
