Adult Truths

I saw this one one of the websites I frequent recently and thought that it was too funny not to share! Enjoy!!

Ladies, you need to read all the way to the end. Guys, you might want to cut out before #24.

Adult Truths
1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Ladies.....Quit Laughing.

Ten Things Thursday

(Are you ready for Christmas? Stocking Puppy, Chance, is ready!! How cute is my niece's new pup?!)

A random compilation of thoughts today:

1. Vin Disel is friggin hot... I could watch "XXX" over and over again for that one actor haha

2. I'm almost finished Christmas shopping- Ya!!!

3. I woke up this morning at 7am CRAVING clue why! Thankfully that went away haha...

4. I still love to watch old reruns of "The Flintstones" and "The Jetsons" cartoons

5. I think it's funny everytime one of my cats walks near the SSScat device that I strategically placed underneath my Christmas tree- it works like a charm! (for those not familiar, it's pretty much a can of compressed air that has a motion sensor and triggers everytime it senses movement. Essentially, it means my cats can not get on my tree skirt or into the tree or presents!

6. I learned last weekend while at my sister's house that the purple gumdrops that come with gingerbread house kits are black licorice flavored...disghuting!!! (at least my family members had a good laugh at my expense)

7. I like the Ana Free version of  "Angie"-Rolling Stones better than the origional. The girl is awesome!! Check her out: "Angie"

8. I love getting Christmas cards in the mail (and sending them!) There's nothing like a beautiful card to make your day and you have to love that for once it's a nice card and not a bill haha

9. I love walking around my apartment in colorful, fluffy socks- is there anything better??

10. The one advantage to having a collasped lung/phrenic nerve palsy is that you can't bend well; that means that you can't paint your toes yourself....therefore, salon pedicures are totally allowable! :)

Tis The Season!

Tis the Season for Cheesy Santa Pictures!!!
(Humane Society Christmas Fundraiser 2010)

On Sunday, Jack and I took my dogs Ranger and Macy to our local Humane Society for their annual Christmas picture fundraiser. It was too fun and we got got some great pictures! Judging on the huge turnout, I hope that they were able to raise a good bit of money for the animals in their care at the shelter. Both of my dogs were very cooperative thankfully. Macy was a little nervous initially because she thought I was "returning her"; I adopted her from the Humane Society at the end of August (she lived there for over two years before I adopted her). So bless her heart, she was a little nervous when we walked into the rescue and then some weirdo in a red suite picked her up!! All of the staff there was thrilled to see how good Macy looked and how happy she was with her new "brother", Ranger. Ranger was happy to see everyone and seemed to actually enjoy wearing the antlers they let us borrow! I also loved that the staff had a special room set up for each family's photo shoot so that the dogs wouldn't be distracted by other animals walking around during the pictures!

This one is my favorite picture of Ranger and Macy with Santa!
Santa's helpers would like lots of toys and treats for Christmas ;)
My sweet pups posing with Santa!

"Rudolph" Ranger got a little distracted haha
The antlers on Ranger remind me of the dog in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" hehe
Macy's santa hat was just a tad to big for her! (This picture turned out a little dark)
Macy "showing off" her pedicure; I spent all night grooming and bathing them the evening before their pictures since I totally forgot to make an appointment with the groomer!
Macy wasn't thrilled about meeting Santa hahaha
All three of them forgot to look at the camera

The staff asked Jack and I if we wanted in the pictures too! Of course we want cheesy pictures haha!

Ten Things Thursday

(Aussie In The Sunshine!)

For lack of a better topic today, here are 10 random thoughts rushing through my mind at the moment. In no particular order:

1. I can't sleep at the moment - insomnia + my current sickness crud = sleepless night and feeling like an 18 wheeler just ran over my body!

2. It is time to retire t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops for walks with my dogs....I almost froze earlier and had to run back inside to grab a coat before their last walk! I'm not a fan of this cold weather!

3. I rotate my candles according to season/decoration

4. Speaking of decorating, I've been "actively decorating" my apartment for several days now. I'm hoping to finish up everything tomorrow (pictures to follow!)

5. I  get a little teary-eyed when I think that my puppy, Ranger will be 1 yr old at the end of January. It's crazy how big he's gotten!! Lord help me if I ever have a human child hahaha!

6. I hate doing is my least favorite chore! I would gladly exchange cleaning toilets if someone would take over my laundry! (I don't mind washing/drying clothes...just folding and putting away laundry!)

7. Clowns terrify me...I had a horrifying circus-related experience when I was a little girl and the movie "IT" really didn't help things!

8. This year's Christmas color scheme at my place will include: burgendies, crystals, chocolates, & deep golds.

9. I go to pick up my new glasses today! This is the first time I've had new eye glasses in several years. I'm excited! I have a huge fear of eye doctors so I literally put off making an appointment until I was down to my last contact and my old glasses were broken haha. Wouldn't you know it that Walmart of all places has a wonderful optometry center! I was able to get the oil changed in my car while a very sweet new eye doctor took a look at my eyes and gave me a much needed check up. He also was nice enough not to terrify me during my appointment! Who knows, maybe I'll go to the eye doctor more often than every 3-4 years now haha!

10. "Sarah Palin's Alaska" = Scarry!! Just sayin... I was flipping through channels earlier and low and behold I landed on that one to find her and teaching her children how to gut fish. EW.
