Because the truth is that gossip's as good as gospel in this town.

Things have been a bit intense around here lately. A couple of weeks ago my car broke down (I believe I mentioned this in my last post, but I don't keep track of these things) and I had to pay to have my starter replaced. No big deal. On my way home from work on Thursday my car died once again, this time in the middle of rush hour traffic. I somehow managed to get my car in to a parking lot and called my dad. Turns out my transmission decided to just up and quit on me. Delightful! So now I have that $5000 hospital bill to look forward to and what I can only assume is going to be a $1200 repair for my piece of shit mode of transportation. I love trying to figure out how I am going to pay for these things when I make so little money. Did I mention I don't have health insurance anymore either? My life is like one big practical joke! I can't even really look forward to my birthday (which is officially 1 month away), because I can't plan a fun way to spend my birthday money as it will obviously be spent on car repair #3980958. 

In other news, I'm never making plans with anyone ever again. I don't know if its my stupid phone that has no service or a lack of people who actually want to spend time with me, but I just don't give a shit anymore. I'm tired of moping around all weekend and bursting into tears randomly when I don't hear back from friends. So instead I will focus my attention on productive things such as growing some herbs for my favorite bunny, reading all the books I can, making mix CD's for myself, craftin', baking and house cleanin'. I might also make up a few imaginary friends to talk to when I can't get a hold of anyone else. That seems reasonable for someone who is almost 24, right?

I'm just going to go listen to s'more Bright Eyes and pretend I'm 16 again.

Sunday Nights Are Slow Surrender

Happy Sunday.The weather is absolute crap here! But it's cleaning day and there was a comic book convention today so all is well. Tonight is Gibson's 4th birthday party. I wish someone had bothered to let me know earlier in the week so I could have done something special for him! Things have been busy enough as is I suppose. 

This has been such a fun last couple of weeks. Amber's 24th birthday was a success- she loved all of her presents and I'm really happy that she liked her handmade gift! My beautiful and talented friend Sarah graduated this weekend, so I am really excited for her. Kyle and I went to her art exhibit last week and it was really great. I can't wait to have something of hers to hang in our home. Oh yes, last weekend was Free Comic Book Day and Kyle and I had loads of fun going around to three comic shops. I bought a really awesome Space Wolverine action figure & a Wolverine bobble head, some comics (Morning Glories, iZombie & Sugar Shock). It was a pretty excellent day. I almost forgot! My cousin Craig and his awesome girlfriend Angela announced last Friday that they are having a baby. We were surprised in a pretty adorable way, they had customized M&Ms made that they brought to family dinner that said "Coming November 2011" and such. Twas adorable.

This weekend has also been nice, minus all the sinus crap. Friday night Amber and I had dinner, went shopping for toys (because we are five year old boys) and saw Bridesmaids. What a fantastic movie. I honestly thought I was going to wet my pants on more than one occasion. I haven't enjoyed a movie that much in a long time. Speaking of movies, Kyle & I rented a few this weekend that we actually took the time to sit down and watch. First up was The Prestige which didn't impress me as much as I wanted it to, but wasn't bad by any means. We also finally got to watch Blue Valentine which I've been dying to see. It was sad and depressing like I expected, but not nearly as much as I thought it might be. Ryan Gosling & Michelle Williams were simply perfect. 

All in all I would say May has been pretty awesome. I can't wait for it to get officially warm out so I can start wearing dresses. It's so damn cold today and I wish I didn't have to leave, but I do. So long!

Afternoon Delight

I didn't mean to abandon my blog. I promise. I've been so busy doing stuff. A lot of exciting things have been going on recently, and I promise that I will get around to writing about it soon. But I'm about to enjoy some chicken strips and The Prestige. So I hope everyone is having a delightful weekend.


P.S Go see Bridesmaids. Right now.
