oK... my new place is nothing like their's... but nothing makes me laugh harder than hearing him laugh at that point. And nothing is better than laughing that hard! Try to prove me wrong...

How is it that we are seeing Halloween decorations IN AUGUST!!! For Pete's sake! It's not even fall yet and we're already seeing pumpkins and ghosts and sales on Halloween candy?!?
Don't get me wrong. I'm very excited for the fall to come. I love fall! It's my favorite season. Hurray for shorts and sweatshirt weather. Where there is a breeze that lightly blows your hair around and often you can smell rain in the air. I love it all! And I'm a HUGE fan of Halloween! If you've seen my decorations- you would know. Scary stories and music and movies... but no haunted houses please. I love it all.
But like everything, it has it's time and place. And August is not it. NOR is September. So don't think... "well there are only a few more days of August and then we can party!". NO NO NO! October 1st is soon enough. Halloween is the very last day of October, and I think we'll have enough time to celebrate during the month. 31 days to be exact.
So put away the leaves and get out the flip flops because Summer isn't over yet! Long live the Bermuda shorts!!! Woo hoo!

Just a few minutes ago I wanted to cut a hangnail. Simple really. Just get the nail clippers and done and done. The problem? I have NO idea where the nail clippers are??? I have a few boxes I THINK they are in... but is a hangnail worth the effort of digging and digging through everything? After days and days of packing and cleaning, I'm afraid the answer, at least for me, is no.
The good news is, after a long day of cleaning and packing, everything that should be in a box, basically is. And everything that should be cleaned, done and done. I still have a little vacuuming to do and a quick mop of the kitchen... but basically, old house is done! Yay! Tomorrow we are going to be focusing on starting to get the new house put together. I don't have a SINGLE box unpacked yet. Blast! But I think this is going to be the fun part. Now I can decide where I want everything to go. At least for me that's fun. Or at least it seems like it's going to be fun right now... Hmmmm... I'll let you know in a couple of days. :)
In other news... I think Kitty is getting suspicious that something is up. She's been fine the last few days, but today she was hissing up a little storm and yelling at me like she was pretty pissed at the world. She keeps walking around sniffing everything and giving me the evil eye. Don't worry though. Her bark is WAY worse than her bite. And she wouldn't DARE do anything to her mommy!!! I'm sure when it's bedtime she'll grudgingly climb up and cuddle.
For now... she's sniffing and I'm getting ready to watch something mindless... anyone have any suggestions of something wonderful I don't have to think about?

And I quote:
"There's nothing more American than apple pie, but millions of Americans would argue about their favorite flavor of Hostess Fruit Pies. Apple, cherry, pineapple, lemon, blackberry, strawberry, French apple - a trip to the snack cake aisle can be like visiting a country fruit stand.
Heat them up and let the fruit filled aroma fill the house. Put them out for dessert, serve them a la mode, or put a package in a lunch box - it's as easy as pie. However you serve them, they won't be around for long. No one can hold a Hostess Fruit Pie in their hands without making them disappear. "
They really are SO great!!! I cleaned and packed a lot today. I even got all my laundry done. And as a reward, I knew I deserved a pie. So even though I was ready to just stick at home for the night- off I went and got myself a yummy Hostess Cherry pie! How could I not?!?
If you're not familiar with these pies, or have forgotten how wonderful they really are... go and get yourself one right now! I know it's late- but you'll be so happy you did when you eat!
Three cheers for pie!
HIP HIP HOORAY!
HIP HIP HOORAY!!
HIP HIP HOOOOOORAAAAYYYY!!!!!!

See those arms? It's like looking in a mirror!!! (Actually the whole body looks familiar... ) ;)
Now you're probably wondering why I'm bringing this all up? For those of you who don't know, I'm moving to the great city of Salt Lake. Woo hoo! Not that I don't love Bountiful, but it's time for a change. Nothing serious. Just looking for a new adventure.
Today I started on that move. I took over two Dwight size car-loads of stuff. (Dwight is a Ford Focus Hatchback... PS) As you know, that's not a TON of stuff. It's a pretty good amount, but you probably all would have been able to do 4 or 5 rounds with it. I could barely make it through the two. In fact, a third was in the schedule- but I really was TOO tired. My arms ached like they never have before! Or haven't in a long time.
Granted, there was a long way from my car to the apt door, AND I had two flights of stairs to go up! But again... for most of you, probably not such a big deal.
So I'm here to admit once again that I'm a wimp. I'm going to sign up with a gym in Salt Lake and maybe I'll start checking out the weight room?!? I don't want Madonna arms... but I'd like to be able to lift Kitty up without breaking a sweat! (I promise, that was a joke!!! I can SO lift up Kitty. I can!!!)
PS... the packing is going well and there are plans to move more tomorrow. I'll take a couple of pictures and show you the new place. It's pretty awesome. AND it has a balcony!!! Yay!!!!! (Kristyn- that was 5 exclamation points going out to you-know-who!)
One thing I know... I'll sleep VERY well tonight! I hope I can stay awake for TMZ!!!

** Remember- this is just a first or second draft. Nothing polished.***
Prince Charming will come and take you away,
At least growing up, that's what I heard them say.
There will be many frogs for you to kiss,
And perhaps some balls you wish you could miss.
Sometimes midnight will seem to come too soon,
Or you'll wish you could hear a much different tune.
Just remember it's not the shoes or the gown,
But wearing a smile and never a frown.
Then when you meet him it will all be done,
Trials, you'll remember, as being quite fun.

SO... one of the best ways to enjoy yourself is silly videos. These are two of my favorites.
This first one was done by one of Jasen's friends...
This next one we just found on YouTube... but it's just as fun!
I love where imaginations can take you. And with my dreams... I really should get my imagination out there more. Perhaps soon in a post I'll tell you about one of my dreams. But for now, have a fun Saturday night and sleep well...

But as I said at the beginning... I've decided that I'm paying tribute to Rainn Wilson because he really is adorable! You know EXACTLY what I mean if you've seen him in any interviews. SO funny and actually, pretty darn cute.
I've always said that my favorite quality in someone is a sense of humor. If you can make them laugh, you've won my heart, lickety split. Rainn Wilson does that. He gets me laughing and then I have no option but to sigh.
Case in point... he was MILES above Josh Duhamel in the second "Transformers" movie!!! ;) oK... but he was cute!
So remember that boys! Maybe the way to your heart is through your stomach... but the way to our hearts is through laughter! Well at least for me...

I almost feel more refreshed at 11:00pm after I've talked the night away than I do some mornings after a good night's sleep... Somehow the night helps the secrets come out and the friendships grow. I feel myself getting closer and closer to the person as the minutes tick by. And the memories that are made... I know it's such a cliche, but some of them really are priceless.
Thank you to my friends who let me tell them my secrets. And even more to those who trust me with their's. I once heard someone say that trust is harder to get than love. I fully believe and agree with that. So to you that I trust... you know I love you, but know that you have a place in my heart that not many see.
And now I'm done being sentimental... Sometimes you just have to! :)

So it is after midnight, and I've had a very busy day of cleaning and chatting with friends. It's been great. Jimmy Fallon is playing shuffleboard with Ryan Reynolds right now... what could be better???
As I haven't given much thought to what I'm even saying or doing right now, I'd like to leave you with something to ponder. I've been doing some pondering lately... and I would like you to join me. So ponder this till my next entry (which will be tomorrow, Tuesday)...
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Is laughter really the best medicine?
In all honesty... which path is better? The one less travelled or the one many people have followed or are already on?

While there are quite a few things I love and am keeping, like I said earlier, there is TONS I have no idea why I have. And being that my new bachelorette pad (do girls have those???) is much smaller, stuff needs to be gotten rid of. Some of this is very therapeutic, and some is a little sad. But it's a time for new beginnings and changes. And getting rid of old junk is just what I need right now. Maybe getting rid of some physical junk will help me rid of some other stuff too. Nothing serious, but I just think it's time for a new view out my window. And this place has a balcony!!! Woo hoo! And really... Kitty needs a new backyard to look at!
So here's my pact. We'll see how well I can keep it. I promise that I WILL NOT keep so much junk this time around. I'll be strong and throw things away unless they are THE most awesome items in the world. Or the funniest memories... c'mon, I can't change that much overnight.
In six months, I'll let you know how this goes.
Keep your fingers crossed...

Why do I love him so and for so long? Who knows why anyone loves anyone... You just do. You do what the heart tells you to do. C'mon. That crush you've had for years that never works out... really? You'd keep crushing on that person who won't give you the time of day on purpose?!? Not that Richard Dean Anderson wouldn't love me the minute he saw me... ;) Sometimes you just can't let go. And if something makes you smile... why not keep going with it. There are enough bummers in this world that you have to grab on to the good times and hold them like they are the only things that exist. oK, I'm being a bit dramatic... but really, why not just love something because it's there?

How do I love thee celebrity magazines?
Let me count the ways...
I love you because even though I shouldn't have written this whole blog in one paragraph, I know you'll still be there for me week after week with new and exciting news.
I love you because you never care if I eat with my mouth open while we are together, or if I have to put you aside for awhile to help someone else out.
I love you because you just make me happy. As simple as that.

Just in case you don't know, I work at Barnes & Noble. It's a fun place, with great people, and we're all pretty outgoing. It's basically a work place full of me. We're usually not shy about anything... until today apparently.
So at one point during my shift today, I looked outside and saw this guy in a red ball cap messing around with the steering wheel of a car. He was inside and I really thought he just must be having some kind of car trouble. I called up two fellow co-workers to get their opinions. They agreed with me. The fact of the matter is, we were all being shy and following the old, lame rule of "minding your own business". But, c'mon! The guy was leaning halfway out the window at certain times. He was looking around like a guilty man... not someone waiting for his mom to come out of Michael's. Alas... we still didn't say anything.
Many hours later, I looked out into the parking lot again and there were 4 cop cars surrounding the aforementioned car, and a little family. None of which was the poor, little guy in the red ball cap. (Please hear the sarcasm...) I did go out at this time and tell what we had witnessed and apologized for not doing anything sooner.
I'm trying hard to believe that it was a mistake anyone would have made... but really, it was because we were all too chicken. I guess this same guy tried to steal a car down the street, so they had better eye witnesses, but still! I felt like such a dork! I mean really, what was the worst that could have happened? The police would have shown up and the guy would have thought we were idiots for thinking he was stealing his own car?!?
Luckily the car wasn't damaged and they all drove it away... but my oh my.
What I have learned? I will from now on ALWAYS send out the Bat Signal... So you little jokesters, beware!!!
In better news... the cop asked for my number and I'm pretty sure he's going to call and ask me out!!! (That's a joke... I know it was for witness purposes... I'm not that slow with dating... well, not totally...)

Mary had a little lamb
It's fleece was white as snow...
Kidding! (Like you really thought I had written that...) :)
K, here's a real poem from me to you.
This is a poem I wrote many years ago based on a poem read in a certain movie. I'm kind of shy that I did it... but it was fun to do. Some of you may know who this goes to... but for those of you who don't- it was totally MacGyver! No really...
I hate the way you hair falls in your eyes,
I hate the way you think you give me butterflies,
I hate your voice, your laugh, your smile,
I hate the way your attention is on me for awhile.
I hate that you joke with me, even when it isn't funny,
I hate that you can make my cloudy days seem sunny,
I hate you looking at me when you do the things you do,
But most of all I hate the fact that I really don't hate you.
That's a first draft... as most of my poems are written. Someday I should go back and touch them all up. But, more often than not, I'm just writing them to get out my feelings at the time. Not necessarily that I'm planning on getting them published.
So there you go. A little part of me.
