Top Five Things That Creep Me Out...

1. Disembodied voices on answering machines.

2. Swimming in deep water. Even if it's just a lake. I swear, Jaws can find me anywhere, and he's like Supershark!

3. Beanie babies. Seriously, those beady little eyes follow me around the room.

4. Creepy hugs (ssshhhhh....sssshhhhhhhhhhhh......just let it happen.....)

5. Single, older, male neighbors that live alone. It's like a thriller waiting to happen. Lovely Bones, Rear Window, Disturbia....there's a plethora of movies documenting the creepiness.

Happy Monday!

Just wanna do something special for all the ladies of the world...

My friend Kristen (see prior "nickname" post) is getting married next month. Yay! So this weekend we had a faux bachellorette party at her house. She didn't really want to go out and do the whole circuit with the penis tiara and all that, she wanted to have a costume party. So, we had an "Alter Ego" costume party.

The objective? Dress up like your alter ego.
What do you mean? (I can hear you asking) An alter ego is another side to yourself. Or, a second side of yourself. For example, my alter ego is a white trash stripped named Trixie. So, I dressed up in faded, ripped jeans, a see through white top with a black bra underneath, and voila: white trash stripper.
And the result? Fantabulous! See photos:
That is all of us after circle time, which was really a great moment. We all took turns describing how we know Kristen, there were stories and anecdotes, and yes, tears.


Then, we retreated to the party room downstairs and did a little drumming! Which was fun, but scary because after a million drinks, I am sure my rhythm is WAY off. Pic above is Kristen's housemate Lisa.



Next, we were going to play a "box munching" game. That is Tamsen above, demonstrating the technique. And yes, that is an actual box on the floor. I don't think we ever did get around to the box munching. Maybe next time.






And that lovely lady is the bride-to-be!

Too much fun! And now I'm exhausted. I have a ton more photos, but I am feeling lazy, so too bad bitches!

The truth about the Easter Bunny

You know how rabbit poop is usually seen in the form of little hard pellets? Well, let me tell you something, that's not how it originally looks.

You see, rabbits (and some other animals) practice coprophagia, which is the ingestion of their own feces. For some reason, when they eat, they don't absorb all of the nutrients, so they have to reingest it a second time. Don't believe me? Look it up!

And, keep an eye out for a new video on you tube...two bunnies, one cup.

Happy Easter!

The secret of life is to fall down seven times and get up eight

Okay, so I am entering another writing contest. Link here:

http://www.guidetoliteraryagents.com/blog/CategoryView,category,Contests.aspx

This time, the judge is Regina Brooks. And let me tell you something, this woman is like, crazy amazing!

Not only is she the founder and president of a literary agency (Serendipity), she used to work as an aerospace engineer at NASA. She was also the first african american woman to receive a BS in Aerospace Engineering from Ohio State.

Yeah. That's not intimidating or anything :)

Anyways, wish me luck! More later...
