Stuff from Stephers
I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.
So, last night me and Katy went to a place called Angels to see some live music and have a few drinks. It was actually pretty nice and chill. We left around 10 and decided to drive downtown for a bit. This is where the oddness began. There was a BMW full of high school boys next to us for a while. When we finally got to a light they began honking and yelling at us to get our attention. We of course didn't look, because talking to a car of high school boys could never be good. It was freaking hilarious and the longest light in the world which made it seriously awkward. Driving downtown we saw a man riding a bike in boxer briefs. Red and white striped ones I think. Then we found a place on 6th that had pitchers of liquor. WTF? So of course Katy really wanted to see what that was all about and we got some. We ended up in a back section of the bar that was playing some serious rap with some serious emo kids dancing around. Weirdest night. Seriously.
So today I was strolling through my Netflix recommendations and I have a few concerns. First of all it says that I'm interested in "Violent Military Movies." WHAT? I mean, military movies are ok, but when do we categorize them between violent and non-violent. Because really, most military movies are about war, and war is violent. Beyond that it says that I like "Witty" movies based off of my interest in Finding Nemo and Kung Fu Panda. Let me remind you that I rent these movies for the kids I work with. So the suggestions based off of that? SECRETARY? WTF? A movie about S&M and a girl that cuts herself based off of Finding Nemo and Kung Fu Panda? Or maybe, "Wrist Cutters: A Love Story" Yup...exactly what I would expect kids who like cartoons would watch. I mean, why don't they just put Kung Fu Panda in with my violent military movies for crying out loud.
On the move
OK, so after a few months of living the nomadic life I am prepared to settle down again. On May 15th me and September will be calling one of my old apartment complexes home. It was a great complex and it was in a great location. I'm obviously not putting where it is just in case there is a stalker out there, but if you know me you probably can narrow it down. We're both really excited and we can't wait!!
For all my peeps
Here's my new haircut peeps. I know you've all been dying to see it.
OK, and an added bonus, me and my mom's dog (err...my half brother as she calls him) sniffing flowers together. Aren't we precious? I'm making the weird face because I thought he was going to lick me.
OK...and my sister sniffing the flowers too. This is just how holidays go at my house people (we celebrated Easter early since I am going to be at work).
I think the type of flower would be a nose-hat.
I know that no one really reads the blog anymore, but I thought this was a cool website that I would share. You can test your minds unconscious bias' on race and gender. It is an implicit association test. Try it out.
OK, so me and Adam broke up as most of you probably know. So, I've been spending a lot of time chilling in Killeen. The other day I went shopping with my mom and the other night I made easter nests with my dad. You know, chocolate and coconut. It's not bad and the dog loves the yard. I have my own room and I got my wireless internet hooked up. And best news is - Killeen has better radio stations. Or maybe just more. They have all the Austin ones plus Pirate FM and The Eagle. They play random music - like Bob FM but better. Maybe I was just in a rut before. So, I'm trying to move on with my life - thanks for all of the support and encouragement :o)
A few of my new favorite things
In this time that I have been slightly out of pocket I find that I have developed a few new favorites that I must rave about.
So, last month for "Present Day" as Katy calls it she took me and Jessica (another girl from work) out to get makeovers at MAC. They didn't use this on me, but it was one of the things I got. They advertised it as an eyeliner that wouldn't come off - wow! So I tried it and even on my roughest days I find it to be pretty much true. Sometimes I still get that under eye shadow - but I got that with everything - and at least now I can still see the eyeliner. Yay! I already have this in 2 colors and there are 2 more I'm wanting still...and it is only $15. Seems a lot for eyeliner, but the little gel tub will last FOR-EVER. OK, so please meet my new favorite eyeliner - MAC's Fluidline eyeliner gel.
And over the past week Adam and I did wine tours at about five wineries around Fredericksburg. We did Texas Wine Tours with Jim as our guide driving us around in the limo-style shuttle and telling us all of the do's and dont's of wine tastings. Anyhow...we sampled 25-30 wines and I definitely have a new favorite. In the sweet wine category I met Muscat Canelli. Who knew? My favorite of the day was from Becker Vineyards and was a wonderfully sweet, yet not too syrupy taste. They also had a wonderful viognier that they call Clementine that was a favorite. AND, I even found a few reds that I could do. One was from Texas Hills Vineyard called Kick Butt Cab and the other was the Pedernales Cellars Family Reserve. All in all, a very educational trip!
