No Sleep Till December

Well, it has been a very busy week so far. I don't have skills lab tomorrow so I don't have to be there until 2 p.m. It will give me time to catch up on all the reading I must do. Our first test is Wed. A little nervous but hopefully I will be prepared by then. I felt ready and prepared for today's lecture so that's good. I doubt I will be ready for tomorrow's though.

We had uploading this week. We did handwashing, restraints, bedmaking and vital signs. We also had our hospital orientation. This still feels so surreal at times! I got the hospital I wanted which so rocks! It will only be a 20 to 25 min. drive! Woo-hoo! I also like my clinical group so far. Two girls from Micro are in my group! And me and M. have all our classes together. She is a very good study partner so I'm happy about that. We went over our calculations today. We have to pass a med test before we can pass meds. It has to be done by Oct. 7 or we fail our rotation. We were having some problems and we went and asked for help. They were really cool and helpful. At least they want us to exceed. And it seems like all our professors love the profession. I would hope so, right? hehehe

I was watching the news last night and I just can't believe how bad it is around the Gulf coast. I feel so sorry for those people. It is just awful. I can't believe the places that we were just at three weeks ago is completely gone.

Saturday, August 27, 2005


Well, the hurricane is over and life is back to normal. At least for those of us who have no damage. I live in a very good area. I never lost power, internet, cable or phone service. I did get a small leak in my bedroom but it was minimal. I was very surprised by how bad the flooding was. It was suppose to hit right down the street from me but decided to head south instead. I hope that my brother is ok, I need to call him tonight. Katrina decided to make a visit to his place. She seems to have gotten pissed off along the way too.

I went out and did some errands today. I went up and picked up a shirt and stethoscope. The shirt is freaking huge! I lucked out because they only had one. I went and got my Pharm. book too. I stood in line at the bookstore for 20 min.! I didn't think it would be so bad but it wasn't as bad as last week. I still have to get my id changed but I think I will do that next week. Maybe it won't be so bad by then. I might try the Boca campus. It might be better too.

I was on my way home when my car overheated.:( I think it's my thermostat which shouldn't be so bad. I need to fill out my loan application tomorrow. I really need to get some stuff done to my poor car. I made it to Costco and parked my car so it could cool off. I come out and the line at the light is horrible of I turned off my car. Of course it wouldn't start right away and instead of going around me like any intelligent person would do she decides to start honking at me. I mean you see me trying to start my car. What the fuck do you want me to do you stupid ass old bitch. I totally lost my cool. But really, how hard is it to go the fuck around? It really surprises me that the human race as lasted as long as it as with all the stupidity going around.

Some little five year old boy was flirting with me today. Hehehe. He starts talking to me and his mom is like "you know he's flirting with you?" I love kids, they can be so cute.

G. was be a perv in the car Thursday and I told him that I had to behave myself because I have to be careful about things like cursing and stuff like that. They make us sing this contract in Nursing School about appropriate behavior and such. He laughed and said how that was going to work. I do curse like a sailor. I really need to work on that.

I have to say how disappointed I am in some of the complexes and housing additions around here. We ventured out Thursday night for food and I couldn't believe how many flags I saw up. Shame on you people!! I mean come on. If you are going to have pride and fly the flag then you need to show it the proper respect. I consider myself a liberal person but that is one thing that I do not believe in is being disrespectful to our flag. I know it's a hurricane and you have things to do but please take down your flags, bring lose objects from your yard and patio INSIDE!!!!!!! I just get so disappointed in people sometimes. I try to do the right thing, try to follow the rules and does it really matter when everyone else just lives by their own?

Thursday, August 25, 2005


I have never really gotten along with Katrinas. They always seem to annoy me. Granted I have only known three but it's enough. Now this damn hurricane may not be a person but hence the name. School was closed today and will be tomorrow. I guess on the brightside, I have extra time to read those three chapters. I got up at 6 because the bookstore opens at 8. I thought I would make it in time since they said they wouldn't make any annoucements on the school closing until 10. Well, at 6:30 the school closed. Grrrrr. But hopefully they will reopen on Sat. and I can get everything done. Hopefully the grocery store won't be completely wiped out. I don't need any canned goods so hopefully I will luck out. But some people go crazy in some hurricanes. I blame the news. I mean it has been not stop coverage. Now I could understand if it was another Charley or Frances. But come on people! It's still a Tropical Storm and will most likely be a category 1!! WTF????

I did have to laugh at MTV. One of the people setting up the tents and stuff said they were still going to set them up and play it by ear. Um, ok, it may not be a really bad storm but it is going to rain like a mofo and you think people are going to come out? Sure...... You think they would have planned this a little bit better. I mean August MTV??? In South Florida?? Do you people do any research???

I went to pick up what I thought was a hairball today. I then realized it was a poor deceased lizard without his legs and tail. I screamed like such a girl when I realized what it was. G. laughed his ass off at me. But EWWWWWW! I don't like dead things. Poor lizard. It never stood a chance with Caesar. I need to put a little lizard sign outside my door "Beware of Cat".

I am going to stay a G. tonight. He said I could bring the boys but I think I will leave them here. They did great during Frances. Caesar who is terrified of a little thunderstorm actually went out on the balcony during Frances. I don't know about that cat. I think the strange house would freak them out more. And the car ride itself would send Shakespeare into waves of panic.

Well, I need to do some laundry, clean up a little and of course READ! I can honestly tell people what my plans are for the next two years. Reading, reading, maybe a little bit of sleep, freaking out, reading and hey how about some more reading??? D. was shocked when I said that we had to get through our Fundamental book this semester. He was like what 25 chapters, I laughed and said try 50.

A Hurricane is a coming!

Ok, I had no freaking clue we had a possible hurricane on the way. Last time I checked everything was ok. I guess I need to start watching the news while I get ready in the morning. Of course this will ruin all the plans that I have for this weekend. I need to go to the bank which will probably be closed. I need to go to the grocery store and to Target. Most likely will be wiped out of everything that I need because of the crazy people. I need to get a stethoscope for my nursing clinical orientation on Monday. Of course I should have gotten that a long time ago but hey I'm broke. I need to get my Pharm book but the bookstore will be closed if the school is. Then I will have to read 6 chapters in two days. Double crap.
I can not even begin to tell you how tired I am. My body is hating me. I am so not use to getting up at 6. And I hate to say it but it's not early enough.:( I barely made it to class in time. Of course I would make it on time if they stupid people on the turnpike doing 60 would get out of the LEFT LANE!!!!!!! Grrrrrr.

So, my pharmacology class in going to be a bitch. I'm not taking the easy one that goes with the ADN program. No, I have to be miss smartypants and sign up for the BSN pharmacology class. Crap. So that's what that extra credit was for. I guess I will ask next time. At least I won't have to take another one when I do get my BSN.

We got out early and I had all this free time so I went across the street to Wendy's to get a cheeseburger. Big mistake. I was sick all afternoon. I don't know why I eat beef. I will never learn. *Sigh*
So, I go into the Allied Health Building and didn't realize that the Dr. Pepper that I put into my bag was leaving a trail as I walked. I now have a Dr. Pepper stained Fundamental book, study guide and handbook. Oh, the joys of being me. They have assigned 4 fucking chapters to read tonight! FOUR!!!! Due tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I told my mom and she just laughed.

Today's my sis's 25th birthday! Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day. I love you!!!!!!!

Ok, I have to go but my head into my books!

Tomorrow is D-day

Well, I start school tomorrow. I'm a little nervous. I think the nervousness will creep in when I start the actual clinical portion. ACK! I went and ordered my name bag yesterday. I think I'm going to try to get a personal student loan so I can get my car fixed and I can pay for my own insurance and cell. I really need some air. Of course it's going to start cooling down here pretty soon so I guess I could wait until next summer. I just might.

I went and did errands with G. yesterday. I took him to Baja Cafe and he really didn't care for it. I like it but I didn't like there queso. Ick, I think they just melted some freaking velvetta or something. But I did get good service and they didn't fuck up my order. Yipee! One place that doesn' t have it out for me.

We went back to his place and I played around on his computer while he cleaned his room. We are oh, so exciting lately.

I wanted to kill him this morning. I really truly did. He always feels very amorous in the morning and I prefer to kill in the morning. I am NOT a morning person. I can get up at the crack of dawn or 4 in the afternoon. I am just not a happy person when I first wake up. Why doesn't he get this?????? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

He decided to take me to IHOP this morning for breakfast. I wanted to stab the waitress with a fucking fork. Since when is it to order from the kids menu if you are under the age of 12? I do it all the time. I don't eat a lot. I don't want to spend $7 for shit that will go to waste. Stupid lady. She said no and I said fine I don't want anything. She tried to get me to order the same stuff but it was like fucking triple the size. She finally gave me what I wanted. I think she knew she was going to be fighting a losing battle.

Well, I have no big plans today. Get my bookbag ready and catch up on my TiVo and magazines that are overflowing from my magazine rack. I think I need to do some laundry too. I hate laundry. Ciao.

I just did a spell check and it is so messed up. It says bookbag is misspelled and a lot of other words that the dictionary should fucking know. Well, I didn't put a capital T in TiVo and that came up. WTF????? Apparently the dictionary is a TV junkie. hehehe

Two More Days!!!!!!

Only two more days until I start nursing school!! ACKKK!!!!!!!!! I went to the meet and greet last Wednesday night. George went with me. It was nice and made some of the fears go away. They had a really nice spread of food too. I was quite impressed. I thought they would just have some drinks and crappy ass cookies. But they had sandwiches, fruit and cheese trays, cookies, brownies and lots of different drinks. It was quite tasty. They had a raffle and of course I didn't win anything. I did see two people that I had classes with previously. So now I know 3 people!!

I still have to buy my med-surg book, my pharmacology book (I didn't know we had one until orientation), my little stuff like pen lights, my shoes, stethoscope, my name tags and two uniforms. I guess we have to wear our name tags to skills lab. I'm kinda screwed there because I want be ordering my name tags until tomorrow. Opps. But I didn't know if I was going to be able to attend. Over 300 people applied and only 90 of us got in. I thought they usually took 100 but I guess not.

I picked George's mom up from the airport Friday. I stayed and had lunch with her. It has been the first time I had been alone with her. I hope she likes me. George says she does but that doesn't mean anything. I never tell someone if my mom doesn't like them. Of course my mom doesn't tell me unless it's not serious. She hated the last guy that I dated. Of course he was a bit dorky. Ok, a lot dorky.

I swear that they have a picture of me in kitchens across America saying "if this woman comes in mess up her food." We went to Fridays last night and I ordered the boneless buffalo strips. It's an appetizer and not that hard to make right? Well, they bring George's entree out first and she's like yours will be out in a minute. WTF??? Since when do you not bring the food out together. That's just bad dining etiquette. Then I get my food and it has but a drizzle of buffalo sauce on it. So it took forever for her to track down. She never once stopped by our table to ask if things were ok. Of course she stop by all the others. Then she takes forever to bring us a check. She cleared the plates, brought me my dessert that I had to go, and left us. When she came back she asked if we wanted anything else. Um, yeah our check???? Then she had to go get it which took for fucking ever. Yeah, she got a two dollar tip. I am so fed up with bad service.

Tuesday, August 16, 2005


It is all over. The drama of the last month of my tuition is finally freaking over! I have made my payment today and I feel like a pile of bricks have been lifted off my shoulders. I left a message for his boss Friday and decided that I was going to speak to her on Monday. Well, first thing Monday morning I get a call from her assistant. I took everything that I had taken previously plus our lease, last years tax forms and my CNA certification. I then get a call from him around one p.m. telling me that I now qualify for independent state residency. All it took was the CNA certificate. I don't know why all the other crap didn't work or if it was just an excuse because she said something but I am just grateful that it is over with. I just hate that I had to waste a whole freaking month on this. Blah.

I feel bad because one of my friends from Chicago is in town and has been for a week and I haven't been able to see him. I have been so busy it is unreal. I hope he understands. Unfortunately that's how it is when school starts. Everything else has to be put on the back burner.

My friend passed the boards!!!!! She is now officially a nurse now. Heehee. I am so happy for her. I can't believe that I finally get to start. I got a little bit freaked out last night while perusing through my fundamental book. I am so freaking nervous. I keep telling myself just to take deep breathes and that I can do this.

Want to know how special I am? I am one in 20 people that break out from the Varicella vaccination. How special does that make me? I am so freaking pissed. I am itching and miserable right now and can't believe that I paid $60 for this. At first I just thought it was hives because of stress. I told mom and she agreed. Then these bumps starting looking weird. I thought maybe they were just some furious mosiquto bites or something. Well, now I start reading the side effects page that they gave me and called mom and she was like, "Well, I hate to tell you this..." GRRRRRRR. Apparently it can take anywhere from one day to a whole freaking month to show up. Dammit.

I am going to do nothing but scrapbook today. I have been planning to catch up on my book all summer and haven't scraped one page. I got my photos back from the trip yesterday. They turned out really good. I still have one roll to develop but it is just stuff that I took while driving. We took to many silly pictures I'm sure.

People Suck Ass

So, I get up fairly early this morning to pay my tuition online because it is due Monday. I am told that I can not pay my tuition because the fees have to be recalculated. That fucking bastard. I am seriously going to hurt this person. I called and asked why he was making this so difficult. He said because legally I'm not a Florida resident. Ok, then I am currently without a fucking state. WTF??? I gave up my residency in Indiana. I gave him my mom's tax forms but he wants an original copy. I think once I do hand him an original copy he is just going to want something else. I hate him. I hate this man and I have never even met him. I bet his life must be really fucking pathetic. Loser.
Then he said I could appeal his decision if I wanted to. I said that I will and that I wanted to speak to his boss. He didn't want to give up her name but I got it out of him and he finally transferred me to her voicemail. He is seriously fucking psychotic. I am going up there Monday and I am going to get this straightened out. Fucking Idiot. I HATE PEOPLE.

I have saw nothing but idiotic behavior all around me today. I really want to run people over or smack them really hard with a brick. What pisses me off more is that I so do not want to be this angry little girl. I try and try to be a nice person who does good and I feel the nicer I am the more I get crapped on.

Oh, and to top things off I get another text message yesterday about taking my friendship up to the next level. GRRRRRRRRRRR. Um, yeah I have a boyfriend?? WTF??? And then I get a text from lost boy. Oh, do you want to hang out this weekend? When did guys lose their balls to call a girl? When was texting a person an appropriate method of asking a person out??

On the bright side I had the best cheesecake at Costco today. Mango, Passionfruit Cheesecake rocks. I am going to cook tonight, snuggle up with Island boy, watch a movie and drink lots and lots of beer. Ciao.

Home Sweet Home

Well, I'm back. I'm glad to be back home but I didn't think I would be missing everyone so much. :( Blah. I had to get up this morning and get some food. I will try to shop tomorrow. I hate that I have nothing in my house to eat. Fucking refrigerator. My cats were glad to see me. Caesar of course gave me the cold shoulder at first but he hasn't left my side all day. Shakespeare slept on top of me this morning. I guess he was afraid that I might leave him again.
Work sent me my last paycheck. I didn't think they would. I was going to go pick it up last week but forgot. It was a nice little surprise. So now I can go get my bookbag and replace the stuff that was ruined. At least my fridge is clean now.

We got in about 5 in the morning which was excellent time. My man was flying back home. Of course I didn' t drive at all last night. I actually fell asleep. I was just so freaking tired for some reason. We lost about two hours because we stopped at the outlets in Gulfport, Mississippi and then ate at Sonic. He found some awesome deals for work pants at Gap. Of course I found nothing. Everything was a funky fit. But then again I never have great luck at Gap.

It was so good seeing my family. I can't believe how much my sister is looking like my mom. She got a new hair cut and she looks so much like her now. She is so cute with with her little belly! I really like her husband. He was very nice and I think they work well with each other. We went out to eat at a steakhouse the fist night. It was funny because my sis's hubby was the only one to order steak. We all ordered chicken. Hehehe. I knew I was in Texas when I got freaking bacon on my salad. I couldn't believe they put meat on my salad!!!!!!!!

I saw my sis's house for the first time. It is beautiful. Her husband has done a wonderful job with the backyard. It is just absolutely beautiful. She already has her nursery done and has everything bought. I don't know what the hell anyone is suppose to get her for her baby shower.:) Hehehe. Me and G. went to the museum to check it out. It was nice. I was a block of ice by the time we left though. It's like Florida. They have to have the ac to freeze your ass off. Then we went and had dinner at this restaurant my her house and it was amazing. I had the best guamole dip ever. And I don't even like guamole. Then I just went over to her house to talk for awhile. It was really nice to spend time with her.

The drive out to my brother's wasn't too bad. We took our time because he didn't get off work until 5. We stopped at Cracker Barrel because G. has never been before. I have been getting the world's worst service lately. It took like 20 min. to get freaking cream for my coffee. Then I think she checked on us once. The drive out there was quite boring. There is nothing and I mean nothing to look at on the drive out there. At there isn't a whole lot to Morgan City.

I have to say that my nephews are just the most precious things I have ever seen. EVER. B.M. is so cute. That little boy is a carbon copy of his daddy. He has the most amazing smile and I miss him already! He was too cute. We took them out to eat and he got salsa on his shirt and just freaked out. Apparently he hates being dirty. Must run in the family. Heheee. And C.D. is just the cutest baby. I can't believe that he has a full head of hair. A. and G. had to show me how to hold him and feed. Too funny. Toddlers I have no prob. with but I haven't been around to many babies. I could of held him all night though. Now I know what they mean about love at first sight.

It was so good to see my brother. G. seemed to get along really well with him which is good. I have about a million mosquito bites on my body. I am miserable right now. Ick.

We went to this Mexican restaurant there and the salsa they gave us was tomato paste. I couldn't believe it. I was like WTF??? I mean I know it's the Bayou and everything but come on!! It was too funny. And some guy had to be a complete dick at the restaurant. He told my brother that I looked great for just having a baby. My brother was like dude that's my sister. Any idiot can look at us and tell we are related. Jack ass. I felt bad because it made his girlfriend upset.

One of my friends from Chicago is town this week. He just got here Monday night. I am suppose to hang out with him but I don't think it's going to be tonight. Hopefully he's here for a couple of more days. I have dinner plans tomorrow so I can't see him then. I feel bad but it was last minute. I guess he'll understand.

Only two more weeks till school!!!!!! I'm such a nervous wreck! AAAAAAAAAAcCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKkk!!!!!!!!!

On the Road Again....

I'm am so excited! I have my house clean, trash taken out, clean sheets on the bed, laundry is done and I am all packed and ready to go!!!!!!!! Of course I was a little bummed to find out the rental car will be a Dodge Neon. Like I am one to complain considering my car probably wouldn't make it out of the state of Florida but still.

Island Boy came by and took me out to breakfast this morning. What a great way to wake up! I just can't have a bad day when I have pancakes and lots of coffee. I have finally gotten over my grudge with IHOP. At least in Florida. I still will not go to one in Indy. Screw those IHOPS. Rat bastards. He also brought me Pollo Tropical last night. He brought me enough for lunch since all my food went bad. I still can't believe my fridge gave out on me. On the brightside me and Tivo made up and he is working again. Apparently it takes Kinder candies to do it. And the new Butterfinger Crisp. I hope to never piss him off again. Who knew Tivo was so sensitive??

It took me forever to find a place that could make me a key. I don't know why it was so hard. GRRRRRR. But I gave the key to my neighbor. I hope he takes good care of my babies. I know they are only cats but I feel so guilty for leaving them. But there is no way I could take them. It's too hot to leave them in the car when we would stop.

I went to the post today and dropped off a package for mom. I told the lady to put lots of priority stickers on it this time. I would like it to get there sooner than three weeks this time. I think that they sent it by turtle or something. I know the gas prices are high but come on USPS!!!! Turtles???

Speaking of reptiles, I was telling someone that if you want to see alligators just drive through alligator alley towards Naples. They freaked the fuck out. Ok, first of all you are in a car. And they are behind a fence. And dude why the fuck did you move to South Florida??? This is coming from a thirty year old guy. When did guys become such big babies???

My mom might be getting an assignment in Napa Valley. I think that would so rock. I would love to spend Christmas in wine country. Guess what everyone will be getting this year??? Well, except my sis. I have always wanted to go there. I think I am the only person who has never been to Cali. dammit.

I talked to C. today and I thought they were only coming for a couple of days but they are coming for a whole week! Yeah!!!!!! We are going to have so much fun. I know it's four months away but I miss him already! I wish everyone lived closer to me. Of course I am trying to talk him into moving down here. Brainwashing one person at a time and before they know it they all will be down here. Heheehe

Damn G. I have had All My Exes Live in Texas in my head all day. I swear if he starts with that song tonight....

All I Can Say is F&$K

So, I decide to take a wonderful nap because once school starts, there will be no naps. I wake up to Island boy calling me and I notice that my chest x-ray script on the fridge is brown. WTF?? At first I though maybe I left a coke in the freezer and it exploded. I wish. I open the door and all my food is thawed out. Everything. And I just went to the grocery store two days ago. I wanted to cry. But it's fixed now. On the brightside I'm getting a new washer. Yeah, that's going out too. But they can't fix that.

I need to go out and get some supplies. It starting to pick up in the Atlantic and I don't want to be fighting people for crap. Of course I just need a couple things of water because mom went crazy last year. Of course I have no room to talk because I have enough tuna to feed the tri county area. I think all I really need is chips and beer. Hey if I'm going to be boarded up and miserable I want to be drunk and eating yummy things. Screw being healthy during a hurricane. It's just not going to happen in my house. And cat food, because I'm not fighting them over my beer.

Only two more days and I go on vacay!!!!! Woo-Hoo! I can't wait to see everyone!!!

Daily Frustrations

Why does this one man have it out for me?? I just don't freaking get it. I swear the next thing he is going to ask for is a urine sample and DNA proof that I am a biological offspring of my mother's. I gave him my mom's tax forms, her vehicle registration and driver's license and he says "I need the original tax form because you are over 24 and once you are 24 you are legally independent from your parents". Well, dumbass I have been independent from my mom since I was 18. I just moved in her home two years ago, she is now head of household. Yes, she pays for more than 50% of my living expenses. He thinks we are doing something shady with the tax laws. Here is a little tip, if you are going to talk about something, actually know what the fuck you are talking about.

And to the lady who felt the need to do 60 in the left lane on 95, I HATE YOU!!!!!!! And that goes for everyone one else who wants to take their fucking time while driving in the WRONG lane. Yes, I will flip you off and scream profanaties at you. I don't care. Learn how to drive. That's why they invented the passing lane. Where do people learn how to drive? I mean I am by no means the world's best driver, but come on!

I went to Walgreens to pick up some Sharpie markers. Buy one, get two free. The cashier just hands the woman in front of me her money in this big wad. It was like $60 and the woman was mad and the cashier didn't understand why. Um, yeah, maybe counting it out to her and handing it to her neatly would be nice. Then the woman in front of me at the bank decided to put on eyeliner at the counter. WTF, people. The world is going to hell in a handbasket.

I got my vaccinations done today. Man that Hepatitis B vacc. stings. Ouch. I waited forever but it was worth it because it saved me a hundred dollars. A hundred dollars I don't have. I also turned in all my paperwork into the nursing office. Woo-Hoo! So now, I just have to buy a few things, my books and uniforms.

Why, oh why is Tivo mad at me? WHY?!!!? My channel guide isn't working. Nothing is appearing. So I can't record anything. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I will be calling them tomorrow. I thought we had something good Tivo. Why did you, of all things I love have to turn on me? Is it because I have abandoned you in the last month? I am so sorry. Please forgive me!!!

I finally got around to watching Fahrenheit 9/11. Boy did that movie just piss me off. I have never been for the war because I thought it was fucked from the get go. I really can't stand Michael Moore all that much but I thought he did a good job with this documentary. I wish for once that people would get over themselves. It's so sad that to this day that greed, land and religion are things that we are still fighting over. I just wonder how the people in power can sleep at night knowing that innocent people are dying for no reason. It just breaks my heart. I feel sorry for both our troops and the people of Iraq. The only thing that we are doing over there is building hatred for America. Like there isn't enough of that going around? Who will step up and bring us back? I hope it will be soon.

I also rented Love Actually and A Fish Called Wanda. I just think that's a funny movie. I'm trying to be cheap and save some brain cells by being a vegetable. Besides it has been a really long time since I have been on a movie spree. I am so behind with movies.

I chatted with C. tonight. I was bad and ignored a lot of people this weekend. I did talk to D. but I just have been feeling so blah lately. I think it's the heat or something. Well, my brother got a new job so he's not going to be home.:( But I'm happy about the new job because he was miserable at the last one. So I am going to spend a couple of extra days in Houston nnd then drive and see the babies. I can't wait to see everyone! I have to figure out what the hell there is to do in Houston. I know that me and my sis are going shopping and lay by the pool. We are going to have so much fun.

Well, I am going to go and see if I can rekindle my relationship with my Tivo. I wonder if chocolate would help??
