Tiger Escapes Magic Act, Ends Up on Vegas Streets →
Police say the residents in the city’s northwest section reported seeing the tiger wandering their streets Thursday night. Police Lt. Les Lane says the cat belongs to Fernando’s Brothers magic act. He says the cat got loose, but “they got it back into custody.” The cat was found in a resident’s backyard. Sounds familiar.
Mexico Shuts Cancun Beach, Alleges Sand Was Stolen →
“Today we made the decision to close this stretch of ill-gotten, illegally accumulated sand,” said Patricio Patron, Mexico’s attorney general for environmental protection. “This hotel was telling its tourists: ‘Come here, I have sand … the other hotels don’t, because I stole it.”’ Patron said five people were detained in a raid for allegedly...
Self Improvement 101
I always find myself saying: “I hate people that do [insert stupid thing here]”. I should be saying: “I hate when people do [insert stupid thing here]”. Because I don’t really hate anyone. And I certainly don’t hate people that I don’t know…they just do dumb things like run in place at intersections (if you were looking for an example).
I’m as positive as Magic Johnson that it is nothing like unwrapping a...– Kenton in response to my excitement over my new nail replacing the smashed one
I'll spare you the details...
but yesterday I decided I have had enough of my gross nail (the one I smashed in the door) and I did some DIY surgery and uncovered the new nail that’s growing underneath. It’s only about 1/3 of the way there, but I will keep chipping away at the “old nail” until the new one is long enough to cover my nail bed. Hooray for new and shiny nails! PS: Did you know that your...
Dear Residents of Alaska, North Dakota, and South...
You guys are the only people who haven’t stumbled upon my blog in these United States of America. I realize that you guys may not even have this new technology called “the internet” but when you do get it, you should check out my slice of the blog pie. But seriously, I’m amazed at how many people look at my blog from other countries - some of which I didn’t even...
The Ting Tings - "That's Not My Name"
Worst song I’ve ever heard in my entire life, like, ever. Just throwing that out there.
0/2: A Rant
So far, neither of the two people I have interviewed have e-mailed me a thank you let… Hold that note…I seriously just got an e-mail from the one I talked to yesterday, like as I was typing this. OK, so 1/2 ain’t bad. Weird, haha.
Eric pleading for help via his Blackberry @ CVS
Eric: Do you need Kleenex?
me: Ooh yes! Make sure the box is blue and green
Eric: I don't know what to get. Klennex brand?
Eric: Long box?
Eric: What do I do?
me: ...and make sure it doesn't have lotion or aloe or anything
Eric: Help me
me: Get a square box. Just plain tissues, no lotion
Eric: CVS brand OK? Help!
me: Um I don't know, usually i get Kleenex
Eric: They don't have blue and green Kleenex without lotion
me: What do they have? Is there anything just blue or just green?
Eric: They don't have solid colors. I think I see one!
me: I know but i mean themed...
Eric: Ultra soft?
me: As long as no lotion
Eric: Green leaves?
me: Whatever u think will match our bathroom
Eric: Shit I don't know. I'm getting them and you're using them
me: OK then...
Interviewee: Is the job mundane? Me: Yes and no…– During the interview I just had. Wrong answer? Oops.
...off to interview someone again!
But get this…he’s an ASTRONAUT!– Overheard on my run last night
I hate your job. I don’t know why you do it.– Co-worker who’s taking over for my boss while on maternity leave
Inspired by artinslowmotion, I just took out my bellybutton ring that I’ve had since I was 14 (thanks Aunt Alys & Uncle Kurt!). 10 years! It looks so weird to me to not have it in, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. This thing will close up eventually…right?
If I were 18 again...
artinslowmotion: I would: 1) Not have gotten my bellybutton pierced, not just once, but twice(..can someone say permanent scar?) 2) Have studied more in school and applied at better colleges. 3) Not have had a LT boyfriend…dated more…. 4) Kept my crappy blue Corolla. It ran great, but of course, I HAD to have a new car…so I bought an even crappier one instead(a teal blue Ford...
Today I held a gun for the first time in my life. Eric and his dad went to a shooting range while the girls were dress shopping. He brought along his Smith & Wesson revolver and a Browning 9 mm semi-automatic and took them out of their cases before the left for their hotel so I got to check them out. I really would like to go to a shooting range at some point in my life. But holding a...

Things I ate today: Pumpernickel bagel - toasted w/ butter French Dip sandwich @ Frontpage w/ Au Jus French fries Wings Chicken Marsala Twice baked potato Caesar salad Bread w/ dipping olive oil No-bake cheesecake w/ frozen strawberries 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio Holy shit. I can barely move right now. Also, I’m too scared to even log that into TheDailyPlate.com. Tomorrow I need...
I found "THE" dress!
1 store, 1.5 hours - DONE and SO HAPPY!
Re: Shrunken Facebook pictures How does one even get their pictures to be sooo small? Why wouldn’t they try to re-upload so they are a normal size where you can actually see what’s happening in the picture?
Kimboslice on: Running with a watch
Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I just bought a “fitness watch”. I wanted to know exactly how long it takes me to run X amount of miles factoring in red lights. Well, it turns out I’m a lot faster than I thought. I used to assume a 10 minute mile, pretty much regardless of distance. Turns out that I can run 3 miles in 25:53, which is an approximate pace of 8.4 mph. I...
