Whoa, is this thing on?

I'm here! I'm alive! I just remembered I created this blog once upon a time and stopped using it. I'm contemplating my next blogging venture, and brainstorming my internet presence.  Maybe I'll be back here? I mean, I still love vodka AND cupcakes! Together! I need to get my creative juices flowing.  I've been lacking a creative outlet for too long, time to get my shit together!

Look at my cute new shoes:

Has it really been that long?

I didn't realize it had been so long since I had last posted. Ok I sort of did, I was kind reminded of it, a couple.hundred.times... Oops.

So where have I been? What have I been up to? Lets see.. Remember those books I started reading? I'm all the way to NINE now! They went fairly fast for the first couple of weeks, but I've recently got more and more distracted. I get distracted easily. I'm pretty sure I have A.D.D never professionally diagnosed, but I would be REALLY surprised if it wasn't true.

Speaking of distractions, Guitar Hero III came in the mail last night, finally! I had ordered it off eBay a week or so ago and I had been patiently awaiting it's arrival. I was totally stoked to see it leaning against my doorway when I arrived home from work last night. That feeling was quickly replaced by annoyance when I tried to get into my apartment only to find that I was locked out. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person that has a key to her apartment but can still get locked out. About an hour later and 3 phone conversations with my apartment manager I was IN! Just in time to keep me from wetting myself. Knew I should have went to the bathroom before leaving work, note to future self.

But getting locked out did have a bonus! I had recently come down with a broken oven. I can't honestly say I ever really use it that much, maybe once a week, generally I keep to the stove top and microwave (yay singledom) but wouldn't you know it, it stopped work, and suddenly all I could think to make for food involved the oven. The time when I can't use it is when I want to bake EVERYTHING! Like for example, I have been talking about making butternut squash lasagna for AGES and finally when I actually had the motivation to figure it out, I couldn't do it. It's been driving me crazy all week, I've even been bugging friends to let me borrow their oven, no luck. My manager had told me the oven would probably need to be replaced and it "could take a few weeks" to do so. Totally bummed. Lame. So I get home last night, the oven is all of a sudden miraculously FIXED! I was so happy! Hooray! My dreams have come true! There will be lasagna! It will be glorious!

So did I finally make my beloved butternut squash lasagna? Was it fabulous and everything I had been dreaming about for WEEKS?!

No, I spent my evening playing Guitar Hero.

I'm not sure...

The following story is heart warming, utterly sad, and completely disturbing, all at the same time.

Suicide claims two men who shared one heart

The title of the story doesn't even capture the magnitude of the story completely.

Ever since I originally read the story yesterday morning, it's been on my mind ever since.

Hello Weekend, how I've missed you so!

It's Friday!!

Coffee in one hand, Top Pot donut in the other... I don't think I have enough hands to type up an update. Oh, I GUESS I can manage.

Another week gone, another weekend ahead of us. I don't know about you, but I LIVE for the weekends. I am planning my weekends on Sunday night, and Monday morning. Seriously, ask around. Not that I ever do anything too spectacular on the weekends, just knowing that I don't have to be at work in the morning is enough to get me excited.

Normally my weekend will include a meal or two with friends, an evening out consuming way more vodka than any human being should be allowed in one sitting, and then a day of laying in bed, all day, recovering.

Whoa I just got massively sidetracked... where was I...

Oh yes, WEEKENDS! I love weekends. Guess what I got last weekend, that I will be filling many many many weekends to come with

Yep, a sewing machine. One that works. One that I've already used to make some fabulous pillow cases with, I will be sure to post pictures later.

This weekend I plan on making a bag that I found at tiny happy. I'm super excited.

Of course, nothing is set in stone yet, because I also recently got these:

Do I have time for both? Which do I choose?! Only time will tell.

Have a fabulous weekend!

I just want to say, I've read a couple blogs where the bloggers were reading the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich and highly recommended them. I am always looking for recommendation when it comes to books and even though I am only just into the second one of the series, I already LOVE THEM. I can't wait to read them all, I just wish I had more time to do so.
