This is one of my most favorite songs ever. I can be in the worse mood in the world, and this takes me somewhere else. Thanks for making this song Bob.

December 13 What’s the best change you made to the place you live? 

I got laid off a bit into February from the “recycling place”; and I decided to spend my unemployed time @Knox, so I had decided to move home. (No point paying rent when I wasn’t there…) Not only that, but I was tired of my roommate situation, but they also were a couple and were ready for their time alone.  

I didn’t change much of anything. I threw away/gave away a lot of things I didn’t need anymore. I tend to have an annual shedding of dead clutter. 

Ikea opened this year in Tampa, and since my windows were bare, no blinds, or anything, and you could pretty much stare in my room, I picked up these curtains and a rod.

That’s about it this year!

since i got arrested, i’ve been outraged at the fines and stuff for other crimes. Getting a hooker, pleading guilty, costs 250 bucks. I paid 195 cause i was drunk, I could got a toothless bj for only like 55 bucks more


“Remember that every day contains a universe of potential; exhaust it. Live & love so intensely that when death comes there is nothing left for him to take. Wealth is love, music, sports, learning, family, and freedom. Above all, stay gold.”

December 10 Album of the year. What’s rocking your world?

I have a horrible confession. As a person who is crazy into music, this year has been a pretty bad standstill. I am still listening to the things that rocked my world last year. I usually keep up with blogs, and new music coming out, but I’ve been a naughty girl this year. However, I would love love love to share with you the newest Smashing Pumpkins song, “A song for a son”! I love it! Go Listen right now!

I’d also like to share a song that makes me want to dance like crazy.

Drop it drop it low girl!

December 11 The best place. A coffee shop? A pub? A retreat center? A cubicle? A nook?

Not trying to sound like a gym rat here, but lately my favorite place has been in the gym group class room. The gym is pretty gross in all other places, (The bathrooms smell like shit) but I love the HUGE room with floor-to-ceiling mirrors & wood floors. I have pretty atrocious self-image issues, but for some reason while in that room, I look into those mirrors and it’s the only time I think I’m beautiful. That’s a rare feeling for me, so it’s nice to think about it twice a week.

December 12 New food. You’re now in love with Lebanese food and you didn’t even know what it was in January of this year.

This goes back to the post about the best 2009 restaurant experience, and Ethiopian food.

The ‘bread’ served and known in the Ethiopian locale as injera, was great.  I found the taste to be curiously delightful, it had a slight sour taste, because it ferments for a few days. (Like sourdough)

All the food was served on a single platter from which we all ate, using our hands (no utensils used). It’s a lot of fun. After reading a bit more on the internet, you are only supposed to use your right hand.

Not for the weak of palate – as they serve a blend of spices which include a grounded cluster of habanero, onion, ginger in a fine red powder.  It was not hot enough to make me sweat, but spicy enough to leave me wanting more… much much more.

– I like the posting the #best05 every two days, it gives me more time to build up some thoughts.

– I love you, I love you Simply Sleep. I don’t know how I survived before I found you.

– Yay! Electronic cigarette! Thanks to you! :* x 4893487483 No more stinky Allie!

– Ugly sweater party this Saturday.  I’m crazy excited. I looked at ugly sweater photos on Flickr all day. I am going thrifting before work to see what I can scurry up.

– I saw one of my favorite gym friends tonight, and we got to cardio together for an hour. (yay 600 calories)

– There was a sub teacher in yoga, she was intense, it never stopped. I loved/hated it, haha. Thursdays are usually the easy, relaxing, non-challenging class, this kicked my ass! I loved being pushed.

– I am (I think?!) done with Christmas shopping. I could find maybe one or two little things.

– 19 days till I’m off to Connecticut!!!

Hahaha, from a chowhound post:

Silver dragees can be lethal.

A minister’s wife hosted a ladies’ luncheon at her house. One of the guests brought a cake decorated with a mutitude of silver dragees, which she placed on the kitchen counter for dessert. The minister’s wife, however, had a weakness for those dragees. Every time she passed the cake, she picked a few off & popped them in her mouth. Pretty soon the cake was all but bald. Although the minister’s wife loved the silver dragees, they always had an unfortunate effect on her digestion, causing a terrific build up of intestinal gas. She surely enjoyed those purloined dragees, but was having a heck of a time concealing the rumblings in her gut from the guests. She kept running into the kitchen to an attempt to hide the inevitable toots from the other ladies. Her efforts to contain her problem only made it worse.

And so it was, that she was in the kitchen when the oven timer went off, letting her know that the tray of lasagna was done. She grabbed a couple of pot holders, and bent down to pull the lasagna out of the oven. As she did so, her skirt hiked up in the back, and (you had to see this coming), the pent up gas released with a mighty blast. She shot the family cat.

I swear! No kidding!! (grin)

December 8 Moment of peace.

I have been into yoga for 2? years now, but this past year I finally got regular with my practice. I had always watched tapes, by myself, or on the living room floor with my friends all with our mats all out.

In the summertime, I finally decided to get serious about loosing weight, and I joined a gym. (I was never ever ever ever the type to workout) and the MAIN reason why I joined is because they held group yoga classes, and I could do that! It was pretty much the only thing I wasn’t scared of at the gym.

I’ve always been troubled with racing thoughts/anxiety/being really wound up, and the twice I week I have class is pretty much the only times I can focus all that stuff out and really get into the groove. During savasana, or corpse pose, which is what all classes end with (It’s just laying on the ground) the yogi always talks during this time about anything on your mind, taking it and pushing it to the side. They also talk about seeing white light. This is the ONLY time I can think about nothing. I suppose it’s guided meditation. When I am having rough weeks, I feel so enormously blessed that I have a quiet little room to go to and zone out for an hour.

At the end of class, the yogi reminds us that whenever we are having rough moments or times through the week, to embrace and recall this moment, because we worked for it!

I also love the strength I’ve found/developed through yoga. I love how chaturanga is my favorite pose because I can hold that push up forever at the bottom about an inch from the ground. (the bottom pose below)

I recently quit my personal trainer to go to an actual yoga studio. :) Namaste!

December 9 Challenge.

This year has BY FAR been the most challenging year of my life. I’ve explained it pretty well in other posts. I don’t think I need to rehash everything. :)

“It’s astonishingly simple. Mysterio Predicts your baby’s future on a t-shirt. There are 12 possible futures, each shirt sewn into a muslin bag, sealed until the parent pulls the red string, revealing their child’s exciting future!
