Sir Guy, with his startling blue eyesDrawly and Sir Guy, snuggling. Only Drawly's kinda got this weird... glare? The babies again. So cute. Kitty family enjoying the sun Drawly staring at... something. Heartless Siren took these, not I. So kudos to her and many thanks for sharing.
We maybe noticed today that we have the bad habit of IMing someone and then leaving the room before they can respond. Oops. So, for those of you of which I have done this to, my apologies and yadda yadda yadda. You'll get over it and learn to accept it as a fact of life. I still love you. (Unless I never loved you in the first place, but we won't get into that.)
I'm back! I've been up since 2 am Utah time, so I'm probably to bed pretty soon here. Also, still have that nasty headache, only it's migraine level tonight and so I've got all the lights either off or on dim and the volume way down low on my computer.
Walked into my apartment early this afternoon and my first thought was, "Wait. Do I still live here? Did I walk into the right place? [check the number outside the door] Yup, right number... Whoa. So clean!" And immediately I knew that L and I are destined to be great pals (this is assuming we are ever home at the same time). The only problem with the kitchen the way she has it (she did some rearranging this weekend after the other girls moved out, which I'm fine with, mostly) is that the silverware drawer has been moved to the other side of the oven and I amn't sure how to deal with this yet. It maybe has to go back. The rest can stay and I'll be fine, but the silverware? Dood, I don't know if you can mess with my silverware.
So, yea. Clean roommate. Don't get me wrong, I have loved all of my other roommates dearly (well, there was Jadis, but we'll just pretend that one never happened), but none of them have ever quite been clean to my level. I deal with it, but dood. This is nice. So organized and clean.
Anyway, family vacation=fun. We went to Florida and did that Epcot (where Sister got "desperate" and flossed her teeth with a strand of her hair) thing one day and then that Typhoon Lagoon thing the next day and I came away the only one without a sunburn. Were we surprised by this? Not really. I guess I'm the only one who read the bottle of sunscreen that said it lasts only 80 minutes. I applied it once, but after that I didn't care to. Kind of I wish I hadn't put any on at all because I didn't tan as much as I would've liked to have done. Oh well. I'll just have to go sit outside a lot, I guess? I can do that. We also did the beach thing, but only for like an hour and dood. I think the Atlantic Ocean is my favorite ocean and I want to go back now. I'll even get in the water. Whoa.
Pictures on my other blog (or on facebook, if you're facebook friends with me). Some of them are pretty darned awesome, if I do say so myself. You will maybe notice that I really do have a fetish for flowers.
Meanwhile, Friday I have doctors appointments down in Santa Horhe, so I will either be flying down to Santa Horhe Friday morning (early) or driving down sometime Thursday (can't do that turbulence thing-ick). We hope this migraine/headache thing can be figured out, as well as that emotional, breaking-down thing. Both of which are happening far too frequently.
You'd think I'd have more stories to tell, but I do not. Sorry, doods. Maybe if I weren't so tired/headachey. Alas and woe is you, because that is not the case.
Hey doods. I'm skipping town for a few days or a week or something and I amn't taking my computer with me. Shocking, I know, but I need a break from the online community, and I don't seem to be able to stay away when it's so accessible. I hope you understand.
Meanwhile, we don't get back to Utah until Tuesday and I have an appointment or two to take care of at home (head stuff- possibly in more than one sense of the word) next week, so I'm not real sure when I'll be back.
Nothing like a nice, cold shower to wake you up in the morning.
I swear, the hot water lasted maybe 15 minutes today. This is very unusual for our hot water. I can only think that someone else must have just finished a shower shortly before my attempt (which, actually, was successful, because I did shower). Still. Cold. I don't like cold.
Also, I maybe spent a lot of money at the MAC counter in Nordstrom's yesterday, but it was fun, so that makes it worth it... Right?
Gourmet chocolates count as candy, right? My ultimate favorite: Mrs. Cavanaugh's Mindy Mints. Mmmm. Dark or light chocolate, I'm not picky. I just like to eat them. It's really too bad they are $20+ a pound.
Chilly invited me to her fun work in-service thingy Friday as her hot date. How could I say no to that? So Thursday night I stayed at her house and she made yummy tacos and we had a picnic in Mamma's room (Chilly's mom is my adopted mother, although I don't know if she is aware of that...) and watched The Office.
Then Friday morning really early the real fun began! First we went here: There was like this speaker talking about the history of the Tabernacle and it was sort of interesting, but he had all of his jokes written down and would read them in a really, really dry voice, so they weren't exactly funny. After the lecture dood, we took a fun tour of the Tabernacle and the underneath basement place of said Tabernacle. It was really kind of interesting and lots of fun times were had by all.
Then it got windy outside (this was actually after lunch, but that's OK) and Chilly's collar of her sweater flipped up in the back and she looked like a cute vampire. These are her attack hands maybe? Way Hott. Before lunch but after Tabernacle Touring fun, we had some extra time, so we went over to Mamma's office and found this cool exercise toy thingy! Chilly found someone to give us a demonstration of how it works, and then she tried it out. It looked like so much fun, I decided I wanted to try it, too. I almost want one.
We also got to hear fun story's from Mamma's boss. We all love him. He's funny.
But then it was time to go to lunch! Yea!! The table settings were very elaborate and there were salad forks and dessert forks even (and if you know anything about my history with Salad Forks, then you know that they sort of make me twitch. But I lived through it).
The food was pretty good, but dessert was best. Of course, that's usually how it works.
After lunch there was another walking tour. This time it was like historic downtown or something like that. I think it would have been really interesting, but fate would have it that I drank way too much water and lemonade at lunch (she kept filling my glasses, so I kept drinking), and Chilly was starting to fall asleep on her feet, so we went over to the COB, Chilly blogged JSN, and then we drove back to Chilly's house.
After that I came back to Provo and tried to study, only there was terrible noises coming from the Village's courtyard because they were throwing some kind of party (that had maybe 50 people show up) and it was loud, obnoxious, and made studying very hard, but my knee was hurting so I couldn't really leave very easily to go to the library or something. Also, there were people smoking out at that there party and I'm starting to wonder if I can get out of my contract because of that... Probably not, though. IDK. If I think about it, I might call off-campus housing and have a chat with them.
Still haven't seen much of New Roommate yet. Actually, I haven't seen her at all today and she never came back last night.
I think we've already established that Sundays are hard for me now. However, Last Sundays are even worse, and I do not like them. I hatehatehate goodbyes and change, especially when you dump a whole bunch of them on me at once.
So nap time now. Maybe when I wake up I can deal with it, but for now I just want to sleep.
Tonight at the ward activity I had 2 guys offer to carry me somewhere because I looked so sad and pathetic (well, they didn't say "pathetic," but...). I declined. Still, it was nice of them. Maybe I'll ask them to carry me up and down the stairs at church tomorrow. :P
Hm. New roommate. I don't know what to think about this. She seems nice (all two minutes that I've seen her), but we learned last year that seems can be deceiving.
I was kind of looking forward to living alone once my roommates moved out. I guess this is a good thing, though, that I won't be living alone... Umm... But I don't know. I feel like I'm sometimes a hard person to get used to because I have so many quirks and whatever.
What if she's not clean??? Ahhh!!! DL, Heartless, you may see me even more than we had planned on if this is the case.
Point in her favor, though, she likes The Pretender.
Good news! I'm still alive! And more good news, the doctor expects me to live for a while yet. Yea. Happy hands.
So my knee is just badly bruised and should heal itself within the next week or two. The head we are slightly more concerned about and there may be CT-Scan fun if it's not better by the end of next week (yes, it still hurts). The back we forgot to ask about again, though. Oh well.
This is how I've felt pretty much all week. K, for the past two weeks, actually. Between migraines/headaches, and now my knee being gimpy, it has reached the point where I've had ENOUGH and am heading down to Santa Horhe in the morrow to see the good doctor on the morrow's morrow. So wish me luck and blah blah blah. At least I won't have to worry about snow while I am down there.
So once upon a time last night my Florence Nightingale roommate wrapped my knee (cuz I fell up the stairs, you know?) and then it took me forever to figure out how to get into my bed since my knee wouldn't bend.
Then today I had to walk down lots of stairs to go to class because our elevator is broken (and elevators are evil, anyway; I don't know that I would have taken it even if it were working). Try doing that with a gimpy knee.
Krishna rescued the most sweetest, loveliest, softest kitties on earth the other day. I keep going over to play with them (she's nice to accommodate me like that- and it's her birthday, so go tell her happy birthday). Look how cute!
Sonja (mama cat) The babies! Sonja again Withdrawly (yes, I named him Withdrawly and, yes, he will be mine, dangit!) sleeping in my palm Sir Guy sleeping on Heartless Siren
I was going to upload pictures, but, alas, the lighting is just not right for it.
Anyway, my parents were very wise to not name me Grace. Today I feel UP the stairs and now I sport two large, very dark, very purple bruises on my right knee/leg (if you're wondering, yes, this is my crooked knee and, yes, it does hurt to walk a little bit), and one quarter-sized bruise on my left knee. Go me.

Last Thursday Uffish Thought and I went rock climbing and it was good times and I had fun. Then we went to DI for more good times and fun and Uffish bought a whole bunch of wine glasses. I wasn't going to buy anything, but then I found this book.
We love her dearly. As you will see, she is drinking a lot of milk. And for good reason, too! Dear roommate needs to strengthen the enamel on her teeth because she maybe chipped one of her front teeth yesterday because she loves me. Remember my earing? This is how amazing my beautiful roommate is! She put that sucker in her mouth between her front teeth and bit down until the back came unglued!
I love my crazy roommate so much, I didn't even disinfect my earing before putting it on (they're magnetic- fear not for the health of my ears)
(P.S. This is not a common thing for me to be on the phone. My sister called me right as the timer on my camera was about to go off and I didn't want her to think I was ignoring her. I'm considerate like that. This is also my really cheesy grin. Yea.)
We have now learned that one should not bite down on super glued metal or their nails, because then their teeth will chip.
Sure, he's lost both of his ears and one of his eyes, but he doesn't look too worse for the wear, right? I mean, he still has his bow tie and everything else...
But then we see that he seems to have possibly... melted (yeah, that's right, melted!) when he tried to get a tan under the lamp.
Sure, it's kind of weird that just his back is gone, but that happens to some people, right? They only tan/burn on one side?
Grandbunny Heffelflopper seems to have gotten a tad upset about this, though, and lost his head. This is unfortunate for him and probably means he will have a harder time running away. He also seems to have lost his bow tie.
I don't know that this is the best picture I took, but I am too lazy to actually look through all the pictures right now. Plus I am maybe going to use one for my PAW this week. And plus I am going to post them over on my Creations page, anyway, so you only get a very small sample on this blog. Sorry, doods. I'm going to make you work for your viewing pleasure of my awesomeness.
Anyway, yesterday I went to Roberts and spent a large amount of money (it was all on gift card, don't worry) on flowers and other... supplies. See below: I'm still not sure how much I like it, and I think it might need more flowers or something to it, but I don't know. I'm going to let it sit and have time to grow on me before I go out and spend the other $4.54 on more supplies.
I know, I know. I told Chilly I am too tired to post tonight, and I am, so this technically is not counting as a post. But as fair warning to everyone, I'm in a bit of an avoidant mood and I also have a lot to do this week, especially since it is basically the last week of classes for the semester. So this means I maybe amn't going to be online to chat much.
I make no such predictions about my blogging habits.
To do this week: Overview 3 in Biology due Tuesday Final in LDS Temples - Wednesday Disney info meeting thingy- Wednesday Final paper (2 pages) in HFL due Thursday Friday I feel like there is photography fun Saturday I know there is more photography fun
