I’ve been uber busy today with Brenna’s Halloween Parade this morning which went a little over but still went really well, she’s Belle and she loves her little ball gown, so I’ll get pictures of that tonight and then of my little Jack Sparrow, Chase…gosh he’s such a little cutie and he’s got that ‘I’m a tough guy’ mentality that makes me roll my eyes at the same time I’m chuckling because he swears he’s untouchable…get real, kid.

After the Halloween Parade, I had to rush to work because I had promised my friend, Sharon (oh gosh I have a story for you guys tomorrow about her) that I’d help her set up for the Halloween Luncheon we were having at the office. That turned out well, we had lots of people show up, including the people that we acquired from our buy out of a small company in September, the people from over there came over and partied it up with us on their lunch hour and we had us a good time. We had a real life, Peter Pan here paired with his green tights and everything, I didn’t get a pic of him, but it sure was funny. We also had Conchita the Banana Chick on the Banana, she was here as was Jack Sparrow, it was too funny and I’d really like to post pictures of them on here, but I really doubt they’d allow me to do so, so you guys will just have to use your imagination on their costumes, it was really great though, good turn out, good food and just good times.

Tonight, we’re having a little (if you can call anything in my family, small or little) gathering at our house, some finger foods, salads and lots of desserts at the house, the boys and myself are taking the kids Trick or Treating and the women will be passing out candy and what not. Then, at my Church, the Young Adults are having a little, get your groove on dance and me and Mulu are going to be going over there to get our Fergalicious on, cause we put those boys are ROCK ROCK! haha. I can’t wait!

I also want to come home early though, because I started reading Nora Robert’s Morrigan’s Cross the other night and can I just say that I LOVE this book! There’s so much going on but I’ hecka loving the little world, Nora Roberts wrote up about witches and sorcerers, vampires and scholars and men of many shapes joining together to fight the war against evil, oh it’s the perfect book to be reading right now and the last book in the series came out today, so I’m hecka looking forward to reading it, woo hoo…can’t wait to get my review on this book up because it’s the bomb DOT com!

So, the million dollar questions of the day are:

What are your plans for tonight? What are you dressed up as today? What are your kids dressing up this year as and Do you guys trick or treat or pass out candy?

Until tomorrow….HAPPY HALLOWEEN YA’LL!


Prison Break: Season Two, Episode Nine.

31 10 2006

Whoa Damn.

I swear, the drama just keeps right on building up with each passing week and gosh I can’t wait for next week’s episode because the time has arrived, all of my fellow Michael/Sara fans, next week Monday, the day comes when Michael and Sara are…REUNITED! Don’t it feel so good? Reunited cause it’s understood, they’re one perfect fit and sugar, this one is it…we’re all just so excited cause they’re finally reunited hey hey! Okay, so I totally used that song last week for what was it? One Tree Hill? Who cares, because it suits Michael and Sara too, more so I think since the last time they saw each other was when Michael was still locked up in Fox Rivers and Sara was still a nurse at that God forsaken place. Oh gosh, I cannot effing wait until we finally get to see the two love birds back together again…I can’t wait to see what they’ll go through together, I’ve waited so long to see these two back together again, and gosh my patience has paid off because THEY’RE BACK TOGETHER YALL!!!

I was laughing my damn ass off last night when T Bag got to the house only to find out that the woman he was after was gone and…laugh of all laughs, Bellick and his sidekick were there to knock him upside his damn head, I dont’ want T Bag to have all that money, but I for damn sure don’t want Bellick and Co to have the money either, where’s the justice in that? Oh come on, someone come along and grab up this money, please? All that money canNOT end up with those stupid dorks!

C Note and his family. I can’t really say that I don’t like C Note, because a part of me does, I just don’t like him enough to take my attention off of Michael, Linc and even LJ for that matter, all of them combined pull more rank over C Note, but I hope that they get away though. C Note deserves a bit of happiness with his family, because they’re trying to catch him riding dirty, tryin’ catch him riding dirty, haha…

Now on to Michael, gosh this guy gets more and more smart with each episode, who knew a brain that big and smart can be such a turn on to me…because it totally is, Michael is the full package, he’s got it going on and it’s no wonder Sara is puddy in his hands, because gosh that guy is the bomb diggity! When he went and visited Mahone’s ex wife, pieced his puzzle together and WHAM! Threw it in his face, GO MICHAEL! But, he should’ve waited, he should’ve called the media or something as an anonymous caller and sold the story to them and to hell with Mahone, but I heard somewhere that one of the Feds is going to help them out, I wonder if it’s going to be “Lance” or if it’s going to be Mahone, I guess we’ll just have to keep watching to see if it’s true. I hope so it is, because….

FRICKIN LINCOLN AND LJ ARE CAUGHT! After all that damn effort on Michael’s part, I knew frickin’ Lincoln was going to get his ass caught, frickin’ stupid ass! If he would’ve just stayed with Michael a little while longer, they could have had his brains to help them get LJ and themselves out of the damn country, but NOOOOOOO, Linc the numbnuts dumbass gotta go and be Mr. I can save my son on my own and get their collective asses caught and thrown back into the damn system, STUPID STUPID STUPID! I hope that’s a dream that Lincoln is having and that it’s not really happening, because if it’s really happening, I just might have to hunt Dominic Purcell down and kick him in the shins, STUPID, doo doo dooooooo….Ugh.

The drama continues next week and boy I can’t wait…Michael and Sarah, HERE WE COME…

…Until next week.

From Holly’s Blog: My Answers.

30 10 2006

1. What makes you visit a blog? If I stumble on it and I like the way it a)looks b)says and c)the blogging person’s “voice”, then I’ll keep coming back, if not, meh…I’m not looking for anymore blogs though, I’ve got too many blogs to check back all the time at already…don’t need more.

2. What makes you come back to it? If it’s funny and if they comment on my blog, I’ll always go back to their blog to comment on them, to show them love…

3. Do you read the archives of a new blog you find? Or of ones you visit frequently? Not all of them, because who has that much time? haha…

4. Do you comment on all the blogs you read? Or only some? What makes you comment or not? I have a set of blogs that I read all the time, if I’ve got something to say then I’ll comment on their blog, but if I don’t then, I won’t…but I do read most of the blogs on my blogroll thingy…
5. Do you like it when someone repsonds to your comment with one of their own, or do you not care? Like comments on my blog or comments to my comment on their blog? Either way, I’m not really picky about anything, if you answered me, cool, if not, I’ll live…as for showing me some love on my blog, well, I’ll only care about that when those people that AREN’T leaving comments on my blog try to blame ME and say that I banned them when it’s more than a little obvious that they just didn’t want to read my blog. *sticks tongue out at the both of you* *wink* Love you, bitches!

6. How often does a blog need to update for you to keep visiting? A few days? Once A week? Once every couple of weeks? I don’t care how often they update, I just like to give certain people a hard time (*cough*Grace and Jerk*cough*) I know that people have lives that they live, but I do get all excited when they DO update their blogs.

7. Is there anything you DON’T want to read about? If so, what and why not? If not, good on you. 😉 Nope, I’ll read anything and everything, I’m not picky at all.

Why Do They Do It?

28 10 2006

I was having such a good day, I had a fabulous lunch with my friends from work, I snuck away to the bookstore before coming back to work and lucked out, spending 10 bucks on like 14 books, made plans to come back and buy some more books at the everything in the store is half off sale going on at my UBS and even racked up 4 more free books from my UBS by all my purchases, I swear the lady over there loves me. I came back to work and instead of working, it’s Friday so I’m blog hopping and just going on my merry way when I come across, my friend’s blog and read this.

La Chou is a blog friend that I met through Nicole. She has one of those blogs, that you go to because you know that there’s always something good to read over there. She’s a sweet person, who’s lived a very full and colorful life. She’s not the most perfect of people, but she’s by no means a bad person either. I think she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know through blogs. She leads a more daring life than me and there have been times when I’m reading her blog when I’ve envied her a bit because she’s just so cool, you know, kind of like the popular girl at school, the ones that everyone loves to hate? Well that’s how La Chou is, she’s the popular girl that everyone hates because she’s just too cool for school, you know?

But I don’t hate her.

Not at all.

I freaking love the woman, you hear that, Michelle? I love you! You are a great person and I can’t believe that this is happening to you. I’m sorry that this is happening to you. I can only say that this is happening to you because someone out there is so sad and pathetic and hating their life that they’re trying to take you down with them.

You see, dear readers, someone printed out all of La Chou’s Archives and sent them to her parents. That’s right, they printed it out, boxed it up, and even had the balls to write an Annonymous letter to Michelle’s (that’s La Chou’s name) parents, the jist of the letter (this is from her blog, so if you want to read the blog, you can read it here)

Dear La Chou’s Parents,
I am ashamed and appalled that people like you are in our church. I found this site on the internet, and you must be so pretentious going to church with a daughter like that….yada, yada, yada. In fact, I won’t be going to that church because your daughter is like this.

How sad is that? La Chou grew up just like me, in a Christian home and her parents are bummed to have gotten this and things are a little tense between them right now, but I have faith Michelle that things will work out for you….and your parents. I have faith that everything will work itself out.

I hope you don’t get rid of your blog, but if you do, I hope you start another one so that I can continue to be your blog friend, because I’d miss you terribly if you went away…you’re apart of my weekly blog hop, so you have to stick around, okay? Take some time off and don’t let stupid punks like “Annonymous” get you down, don’t let them win! You’re a woman of worth and I have so enjoyed getting to know you through your blog and I hope to continue to do so sweetie.

Why do people have to be so frickin’ cruel? I know that I’m not the perfect Mormon and there are a lot of things that Mom HATES that I do, she hates that I read romance novels, she hates that I’m on the computer all the time, she thinks the Internet is of the devil and last night, she called me and scolded me about having a myspace, telling me that nothing good can ever come from having a myspace and she urged me to get rid of mine (this was AFTER I got scolded from my sister, Blanche about myspace too, UGH!), she’s not a fan of worldly things and she considers computers among the worldly things, so she hates them.

But, should she ever find this blog (and Delene if you’re reading this and you tell Mom, I WILL slash your tires), I know that she’d be disappointed, but she wouldn’t disown me or hate me for it. So, I guess what I’m trying to say, and this is for you, La Chou, your parents love you and no matter how mad they get at you, or what you do to disappoint them (though I don’t think you have anything to feel ashamed about, you’re a GREAT person), they’ll stick by you….because that’s what family does and because they love you, you’ll get passed all of this.

I’m just sorry that you had to go through this at all.

Big Hugs sweetie, know that I’m thinking of you and will miss you terribly if you were really to leave us! DON’T LEAVE! Grrrr, people are often so cruel to others for no reason, and I absolutely HATE that, I hate that instead of going to Michelle personally, they went behind her back to snitch her out to her parents, becuase she dared to have a life and share it with her readers. I hate that my friends get hurt and I hate when my friends don’t even know who their accusers are because they were not ballsy enough to own up to being little rat bastard snitches!

((((((La Chou)))))))

5 Truths About Me.

26 10 2006

So I’ve been tagged by the lovely, Devonna over at Good Reads and I’m totally doing this since it gives me something to blog about since I’ve been coming up with next to NOTHING to blog about these days…nothing much is going on in my life so, meh…THANKS to Devonna for giving me something to do! You rock sweets!

I’m supposed to list 5 Truths about myself and so this is my coming clean post, haha…and on with the list.

1. My real name is Rowena. I’ve been going back and forth about whether to just come out and start posting under my real name or just leave it be the way it is, but well when I first started this blog a year ago, I thought it would be cool to post under an alias because 1) I didn’t want anyone to find this blog that I knew in my offline life 2) I didn’t want my family to find this blog and 3) Because Dylan for a girl was always such a cool name to me and I wanted to use it. But, since the cat’s out of the bag, the people I was hiding this blog from already know about it and are faithful readers (as my best friend, sitemeter tells me weekly), I thought why not, just come clean and just be free…with no restrictions, so here it is…the first truth, call me, Rowena, cause that’s my name. =)

2. I’m the shy one in my circle of friends. My readers will probably find this really hard to believe, since I’m so confident (LOL) and fun loving on this blog, but in my real life, I’m actually the shy one, well if you have a best friend like mine, it’s hard to be the spotlight because she’s just one of those people that demand attention wherever you get it and I actually prefer it that way. I don’t like to draw attention to myself (I know, shocking huh?) in real life and I think that has to do with my guy situation. The last guy that I was totally head over heels in love with and so confident that he loved me back, was cheating on me the entire time we were together. Well, actually he was with his girlfriend the whole time, making me the dirty mistress and that did some serious damage to my self esteem and my confidence. I haven’t found anyone to change that so I tend to shy away from strangers, guys and just people in general. I have to know you to open up and be all sunshiny with.

3. I think that I’m destined to be single for the rest of my life. I think I’m just so used to being single that I’ve got that Independant Mentality, I do what I want, when I want and I just haven’t met anyone who has made me want to change that and sometimes I don’t think I ever will. Maybe I’m like ruined by Mike (the evil ex), because I will always find something wrong with every guy that I go out with and then I’ll break things off, it’s a vicious cycle…I don’t ever let anyone that close to me and I have no idea why. Okay so maybe I do know why, I don’t ever want to feel the way I felt when I found out about Mike and his girlfriend, Melissa…the kicker about it all is with all of my self doubt and what not, you’d think I’d stay FAR AWAY from romance novels, but I don’t…I’m a freak, I know this.

4. My all time favorite singer is Kenny Chesney. For some reason, Kenny Chesney is my go to guy for pulling me out of certain funks. As long as I have Kenny Chesney cds there to listen to when I’m in one of my moods, I’m good to go. Listening to his songs always reminds me of his concerts and his concerts are always filled to the brim with good times. It’s the one time a year that you can catch all of my brothers and sisters together for more than an hour at a time, with no worries, no drama (well for the most part, haha), just fun and good times. I always have a blast when I’m with my family at the concerts and their my most prized memories, which always boosts Kenny Chesney up to the top of my favorites, because not only do I LOVE his songs, but I love the memories that he helps bring into my life with his concerts!

5. I’m a very active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I’m not the most perfect Member of my Church, but I do love my Church with all that I am. It’s the one thing outside of my family and friends that is a solid foundation that I can always count on for both myself and for Brenna. There’s a place for everyone there and no one is left behind. I have a strong testimony of the gospel and going to Church is a lot of fun for me, I love learning new things and I love just being around the other Members of my Ward, we’re a family, always looking out for each other and I just love that.

Alright, there it is…my truths, what are yours?

I’m tagging: Whoever wants to do this that hasn’t already.

That picture with the 5 was the only picture I could find, I DO NOT SMOKE WEED! haha.
