i missed this today...

its true. some days i really do miss my life back in nyc. it was such an exciting city and i love that i got to experience it the way i did. and...I MISS MY GIRLS.

hailey tagged me...

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.C. At the end of the post the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. Habit: Cuticles. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a problem with my cuticles. Always have and always will....so lets just get over it ok?!

2. Fact: I dont like to shower. Its true. I just really dont like it. It is time consuming and takes forever to get ready afterwards.

3. Fact: I LOVE to eat. I could eat just about any time of day.

4. Habit: Air-humping. It happens. Especially during awkward dance parties.

5. Fact: I LOVE BOOTY DANCING MUSIC. Probably more than I should, or should be allowed.

6. Fact: The ONLY reason I am not getting a tattoo (as previously discussed in a post) is not because everyone was so against it with their comments - it is because I confirmed tonight that John Hawley would seriously cut me off. Maybe I dont want to grow up just yet.

7. Fact: I really hate this game. So I tag NO ONE.

ok...twist my arm - i'd take mc steamy...

some of you may remember my recent post about mc dreamy. but now....there is a new man on grey's. oh yes. it is mc steamy. all i am saying is that maybe i have a new crush. and that i am quite literally obsessed with this show right now (i am on the first disc of season 3, shannon). here is the scene that converted me to mc steamy....enough said.

my obsession....this week.

I have seriously been obsessing over the idea of getting a tattoo. I almost wish that I would have gotten one when I was 18 so I could use the excuse "I was young and stupid" - but now I am old....and really smart. ha. not to mention john hawley threatened to cut me off if i got one. good thing I am an independent adult these days...oh wait - did I move back in with my parents recently? ok, but I think one of these symbols would look really cool on the inside of my wrist. Is that so weird? I think it's hot. Opinions please? I am thinking I need something new in my life in 2008, and this could be it.
ps. all these Chinese symbols represent "dance." its kinda cheesy, but i like it. get over it. which one do you vote for? Lets number them 1 through 4 starting with the top left corner and going clockwise. thanks.

happy 50th dr. john!

my wonderful father turns 50 today!! dont worry, i got him covered and gave him a cane for his big b-day present. i think he is actually just excited that he doesnt have to go to Nutcracker on his special day. ha!
my dad couldnt be any better than he is! he is hilarious, kind and the most selfless man i have ever met. he finds a way to point out my ridiculousness every chance he gets and i love him for that. my humor comes from my father! i have loved being back at home spending time with him and shelly, and now that they got tivo (after much badgering) i may never move out!
dad - i hope you have the BEST bday ever!!! I LOVE YOU!!!

i got my hair did.

you know you are in b-town when your hairdresser:
- has big fake boobs
- has had the same color blonde since the day you met (platinum blonde with NO roots....ever)
- has cheated on her boyfriend
- is awaiting trial for her second DUI
- dates men in the military (and they are gone all the time, so of course cheating come naturally...duh)
- cannot leave the state for some recent "circumstance"
- gets married in vegas...

- is in the yearly "Bakersfield Girls" calendar (very popular with the local firefighters)
- has been a godmother to her best friend's child since age 16
- talks about moving across the country to live with her husband, but cant because of the "circumstance" and other court related issues per DUI

hey, my hair looks real nice though and all the stories are entertaining. i really like her.

i was in the b-town newspaper today...

yes, that is me in the back left corner, trying to get some attention by flailing my hand in the air. Civic Dance Center is celebrating its 30th anniversary of The Nutcracker in collaboration with the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra, and this picture above was in the newspaper to showcase some of the former Sugar Plum Fairies and Claras over the past 30 years. ok, i am no photographer, but having us jump and angling the camera up our nostrils was probably not the best of ideas. whatever. i love that it is Nutcracker this weekend and am sooo excited to go and support all the dancers!! it makes me miss dancing...a lot. boo. if you are interested in reading the rest of the article about this 30th anniversary, i have been nice enough to include the link: http://www.bakersfield.com/138/story/303084.html

for those of you who dont know...

I lost my voice. It went from "man voice" on Monday to "squeaky puppy" on Tuesday. Today it is "sexy rasp" with an occasional crack.

sunset co....back on.

i went to the oc this past weekend to play and see some old friends! i was sooo happy to spend some quality time with my jill-doe-for-real-doe! her and her adorable surfing-guitar-playing husband live in a cute little apt in san clemente. i seriously fell in love with that little town! jill is always up for a good time and i admire her for so many different reasons. not only has she always been an amazing friend to me, she always has a positive outlook on everything in life. when i am with her, i know i will laugh and probably have a heart to heart all in the same hour. she truly inspires me to be my best self and i feel privileged to call her my friend! my visit with her included yogurt chicken (intended for some single, yet not eligible bachelors), pedros special burritos, singing/screaming to girl classics in the car, pazookie at bj's, serenades from man and wife couple, BEACH, bubbles, sunsets and of course.....picture taking. we had such a great time at the beach on monday i just HAD to share! we had a little photo shoot and here are some of the shots below!

thanks for a fabulous weekend jill! i am so happy we are still bff after being "old college roomies." haha...nauvoo 208 for life! dont be alarmed if i show up again next weekend and want to play again! LOVE YOU!

i want one.

ok. seriously - how freakin cute?! i mean honestly? i just keep looking at this and thinking i want a yorkie. i do. bottom line. thats what i want. most of you are probably like...um what? i thought you didnt like dogs. well, i dont...really. after being attacked by brandon ott's golden retriever in kindergarten, i was traumatized. not only that...dogs tend to smell...and lick. ewww. i really dont like being licked...by anything. but, i was visiting the wee a couple days ago and met teddy. teddy is the most loving little yorkie i have ever met. he did not smell and he didnt drool or lick (that much). i was seriously taken aback by my feelings for this creature. i mean...teddy knows tricks. like how to shake. not only that...dogs are ALWAYS there. he was just so happy to have me there visiting. he fell asleep on me. he is loyal. a dog could really be MY constant companion....for eternity. all dogs go to heaven, right? and i can dress him up and he wont complain. im getting one. not soon...but eventually.
