Cute black flats can be used for more than just accessorizing...

I never thought I'd say this but, being in a relationship has made me realize that I, in fact, am... needy. I never imagined, okay, well, I kind of suspected, but hoped I would never succumb to the whiny and pathetic habits of one of those girls. But here I am arguing with my dude because he's been too busy painting his apartment for the past what feels like forever to be spending time with me! Boo! Even as the words escape my mouth I know I'm not being fair, but I just can't get over it. Yes, I know we'll spend time together soon, but that doesn't cut it. The quota on hang out time zeros out at the start of each week! (Clearly I sound crazy.) So we discuss it, he's very sweet yet rational, I reluctantly agree and then I realize I still feel dissatisfied and reinstate my original argument. He lets out an aggrivated sigh and now I'm sure he's going to dump me. I am doing what guys hate, I tell myself, even I hate it! But it's no use, Needy girl is behind the wheel and there's no telling how far she'll go to have her needs met. Lets just hope my man sticks around long enough for me to Buck Up!
As far as the sale selection goes, I found this little interesting piece for $19.95:
What do you think? I kind of like it, paired with a simple black top for a night out. Please fashionistas, let me know your thoughts.

The truth: I originally left the guts because just the act of squishing filled my capacity for gross-out and I could not bring myself to then wipe the guts off the wall. I justified my display of crusty bug guts as a warning to their descendants, but my line of defense is not working. Despite the changing seasons spiders still flock to my bedroom in packs and now the bug guts have become cemented to the wall, such that removing them means taking the paint off as well, so there they remain.
Exhibit B: More bug guts

I have yet to learn to do this, but it's something I look forward to.
I know I owe my three readers an update on my goals and so forth; stay tuned...

“Um, nah, it’s okay. We got it.” was his reply. I assured him it would be to my enjoyment and he assured me right back that my help was not only unneeded but unwanted (in only slightly kinder words.) Meaning, he and his roommate were going to have some quality beer drinking, grunting, burping, and spitting time; no place for a gal like myself. Instead, I reluctantly returned home in my ready-to-paint outfit, darling Geraldine Doyle hair band ‘n all, and comforted myself with a bowl of mint-chip ice cream and fun French music. Tisk, tisk, those boys!
But you shall reap the benefit. Here are a few songs, so fun and lovely, they make it impossible not to feel quite splendid while listening to them:
*So Nice (Summer Samba) - Astrud Gilberto
*Samba De Mon Coeur Qui Bat - Coralie Clement
*Que Reste-T’il De Nos Amour - Charles Trenet
*Assedic - Les Escrocs
*Je Cherche Un Homme - Eartha Kitt
*C’est Si Bon - Eartha Kitt
*Brazil - Django Reinhardt
*La Vie En Rose - Louis Armstrong
*Remember Me - Heitor Pereira

Instead I will inform you that on Saturday I had dinner just two tables away from THE McSteamy of Grey's Anatomy!!! Lemme tell you, he is every bit as steamy, maybe even more so, in person. Not only that, but he looked right at me! I looked pretty good too.
I was at San Ysidro Ranch's Plow & Angel restaurant for a friends birthday. One of my favorite spots and a celeb hot spot. "Dr. Sloan" was there with his wife, probably trying to find some privacy from his threesome tape scandal. Our table of six girls nearly peed our pants when we saw him, but we were able to play it cool.
To the left is his infamous McSteamy moment. As you can see it is difficult to determine if the steam is from the bathroom he's just stepped out of or if it is radiating off his body...
On another note, the Plow & Angel restaurant is incredibly beautiful and the baked Macaroni & Cheese and Blood Orange Margeritas are delish!

I intended to clean my room last weekend, and again on Monday; I considered it again on Tuesday and by Wednesday I just embraced it. I trasitioned from being stressed about the clutter to being comforted by the clutter. I am surrounded by my stuff. It's kinda cozy. Should I hang up that top? Nah, just throw it onto one of the piles! So easy! I figure I will have to tidy up this weekend. But in the meantime I'm loving the life of a slob.
This probably doesn't look so good being the only follow up to the previous post...

A dear friend sent me a post card with this poem by Robert Creeley on it. Isn't it sweet?
And finally: Nothing beats a friendly companion.
Simply put, the book is incredibly romantic with a unique and engrossing story line. I was hooked from the first page. Even though it is about a man that time travels, it is not fanciful. It is mysterious, thought provoking and beautiful and you cannot help but fall in love with the characters, Henry and Clare. I can't explain much more than that, I liked it in every way.
A clue to help you follow along with the time traveling story line: When, lets say, 38 year old Henry travels to the past to when he would be 18, he does not appear in the past as an 18 year old, as happens in Zac Effron's movie, "17 again." He remains the age he time traveled from and can even have conversations with his 18 year old self. Trust me, that will help. Don't get too caught up trying to understand everything about the time traveling, some things, like non-existent time travel, just can't be understood completely - but still well appreciated.
I have been avoiding posting to this blog since I created it in March for fear that I will ruin it with tedious rambling that no one could care about. Now that I am finally posting something it will probably be another six months before I tell anyone that it exists. Timid? Very. I've never been comfortable with people reading my writing nor with having personal things on the internet. Yet, somehow, when thinking about creating a blog I thought, why not? This will be an uphill battle.
If anyone is to ever read this, please forgive my horrible grammar and sometimes interpretive spelling.
For my first ever post I am sticking to a safe topic: My favorite book of all time!
August 14th 2009 is the release date for the movie "The Time Traveler's Wife," starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana (whata hunk!.) That means that you have, I think, 57 days to buy the book, by Audrey Niffenegger, and READ IT!!! I loved, loved, loved this book! I can be a little obsessive about a good book but I promise it will not disappoint! I would often go to a cafe or bookstore to read it and while doing so women would approach me and excitedly tell me how amazing the book was. Now, I have become one of them.
I would recommend reading the book before watching even the movie trailor, but, if you need something to get you excited about it check it out: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2784428569/
If you read it, tell me what you think!!!
