Spraynard Kruger

Last night Kane threw me an awesome surprise party for my 28th!! I was completely surprised too, it was awesome. I came home from work thinking I was going to meet Lisa for dinner, and when we walked into the apartment, guess what was there? Balloons! Streamers! 20 of my closest friends! Presents! Cake! Beer! Awesome!
I did get pretty drunk, but remarkably I didn't throw up. I thought for sure I was gonna though. Tequila shots and I don't usually mix. I'll upload some pictures soon, but in the meantime here's a clip from Tim and Eric's Awesome show that I love. Happy Birthday Spray!

It's almost my birthday!!! YaY!!!
To celebrate, Kane and I are going up to Prescott today (I almost forgot it's already Tuesday!) with Brianna and Robert to see a Weird Al concert. I can't think of a better way to spend my last night as a 27 year old!

Sooooo, pink blog? Yay or Nay?

As Steve Brule would say,"Fashion Victim or Fashion Slave---you make the CAll.".

I know I've been tagged by Lisa, so before I finally get to that (sorry!), I just wanted to tell you about the dream I had last night. I dreamed that I was here with the original settlers to colonize the New World, and I picked the land and drew New Jersey on the map. I was going to settle and establish New Jersey, and my first order of business was to build an Old Navy store. Then Kate from "Lost" showed up, and she wanted to settle Pennsylvania, but she wanted all the Old Navies, so we had to draw up a declaration giving New Jersey permission to have an Old Navy store. We shook on it and everything. So basically, it's because of me that New Jersey exists, and that you are able to find fashionable clothes at reasonable prices at Old Navy. THE END.

So anyway, on to the tagging.
*8 weird things about myself*

---Almost every song I listen to I try to think up a movie scene it would probably be in. For example, just about every song on the radio right now has a little scene along the lines of-there's an angsty kid, and everyone thinks they know him, but there's a whole other side to him, and he's gonna rise up against the popular kids and blah blah blah, etc.
Either that, or there's another scenario where a girl moves to "the big city" by herself, and there'd be some lame montage of her being all "fish out of water" but by the end of the song, she's ridin' the subway and on a first-name basis with the guy at the deli. Shit like that.

---My biggest fear when driving on the freeway is that a rock is gonna get kicked up somehow and fly through my driver's side window and hit me in the ear. Or hit me in the neck and break my neck like a goose. So I always need the windows firmly closed on the freeway.

---Me and my cat Fizz have a freckle on the exact same spot on our noses.

---I eat at least 1 pixie stix every day.

---I drive around with my grandfather's "Lake George" baseball cap in the trunk of my car at all times. He had it in the window of his car until he died, and it makes me feel safe having it in there.

---If it wasn't for the fact that I would have to handle or possibly eat seafood of any type, I would be in cooking school right now training to be a chef.

---As a child I fell on a dead body while it was being embalmed in a funeral home. I can't remember if I already wrote about that yet or not, but it was very scarring.

---I need to have all drawers and cabinets in my apartment closed at all times. It bothers me if I know that a cabinet is open somewhere and I keep thinking about it until I get up and close it. I also prefer for all closet doors to be closed always too, but this doesn't bother me as much.

Okay, there's my 8 things. I would tag 8 people but no one updates their blogs anymore.
And since Lisa already tagged Matt, I'm tagging my Weird Al loveing friend, Robert. Go!

And the Goings On gets Goin' On...

Here's what's happening now in the life of me.

-My last day of work at Scottsdale Bead is this Friday. It's sad to say goodbye, but I got an offer I could not turn down. I'll be working in the office of the apartment complex that Kane and I are moving to, so aside from many other great resons to work for them, I also get a nice rent discount and I have no commute to work! So awesome!! Plus I no longer have to see the woman who has put constant effort into making me miserable and picking on me for almost two years. Biggest plus of all!
I can't wait to start, everyone there seems so nice. I really will miss my current bosses though, they really were there for me through a lot of rough times.

-I made jewelry for Naynayfazz's bridesmaids! I didn't want to put up any pictures till she got them, but here they are! I'm so glad you like them Miss NayNay!!

-Kane and I have been debating which would be worse: Having Corey Haim mouth or having Corey Feldman mouth?

Feel free to vote in the comments. I say Haim mouth would be the worst, since you could never close it and it looks swollen all the time.
However, Feldman mouth is all tight and there's not much lip there. You'd probably have to use your index finger to push food in there.
There's also the topic of what would happen in the even that you have to vomit. Would it slowly just kind of drip out quietly(Haim) or would it be forced out in a spray, like when you put your finger over the spout on the faucet(Feldman)?
I don't know, it's a tough question.

-I was shocked at the finale of I Love New York. She actually picked Tango the Ninja Turtle over Chance? Don't get me wrong, I didn't like either of them, I don't even like her, but Chance was clearly the better match. They were so much alike. Tango is a big boring idiot. My opinion.

-I made yummy chocolate and buttercream cupcakes and brought them over to Lisa and Greg's for Easter.

I think they came out rather pretty, but I am especially proud of the box I made to carry them over in!

Anyway, it's bed tyme. I'll write again soon I swear it.

I was trying to describe this scene from "Extras" to Lisa, but maybe seeing it is the best way. "I've seen everything."

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

I've been tagged! Yay! I haven't had anything to write about so here we go!
Report on 7 Songs I am Into Right Now: (in no particular order)

1. The Golden Years by David Bowie
This is one that probably drives Kane crazy, but it's on so many of my playlists lately. I like to listen to it and think about all the stupid, fun stuff I did in high school and college, my "Golden Years" if you will. Plus David Bowie is King in my universe.
2. I Never Loved A Man by The Commitments
I recently downloaded the Commitments soundtrack, which takes me straight back to the summer of 1993, when Lisa and I had that soundtrack on constant rotation. We went camping that summer and spent hours one night in Massachusetts swinging on the swings and singing "Destination Anywhere". I would have put that song on this list, but I picked the one I went with because it was sung by may favorite "Commitment-ette" Natalie, and I always wished I could sing like her. She rocks.
3. Slowly by Ann-Margret
They played this one on the Kate episode of "Lost", and I had to download it right away. I love the way the whole song sounds, I can tell why guys used to think Ann-Margret was a babe now. Before I was like, "You mean that old slit from Newsies??".
4. Home by Depeche Mode
Just a nice, long, beautiful song to listen to and zone out. I like letting my mind wander to this one.
5. Prayer to Saint Francis by Sarah Maclaclaclaclaclaclan
A good song about forgiveness and acceptance, of letting go. Some recurring themes in my life.
6. Goonies by Cyndi Lauper
Cyndi is so cool. I just have to smile and sing along with this song. I love to blast this one in the car. Goonies ARE good enough!!!Plus, does ANYBODY sing like she can? Her voice is just crazy.
7. Everybody Knows by Concrete Blonde
I actually like this version better than Leonard Cohen's. Concrete Blonde has been one of my favorite bands forever. Also, yet another song from a movie soundtrack. "Pump Up The Volume". Oh, Christian Slater, where did it all go wrong?

I just realized, not ONE of my songs are current. I just don't like what music is nowadays. Nothing grabs me, it all sounds the same. I like music with character.
Now it's my turn to tag someone! Kane, Robert, Diana, Matt, Lani, Erin, tag---you're it!

Before you go though, look at this cat. Look at it! Someone stuffed it into a sock! I think it's a sock. Maybe a bootie. Look at him! Lookatem!!!! Awwwww.

Dinner With The Sisters

These pictures need no explaination. Mostly because I wouldn't be able to give you one.

Welcome to the Hotel Cal-I-Fornia!

Actually we didn't stay at the Hotel California, we stayed at Robert's friend Laurie's house! And I must say it was beautiful. We went to Cali from the 9th to the 12th, and I really did not want to come back to AZ. It was so good to see green landscape and actual trees again! We went to LA, went to a Dead Man's Party show, and spent an afternoon in Newport Beach. All in all it was a very relaxing vacation, and good to finally see big bad L.A. that I always hear so much about. Well, the verdict is, it ain't so bad. It was much smaller than I pictured it, and I think it's more ghetto in West Phoenix than anywhere there.
So anyway, here's some pictures from the trip!

Here's me and Kane, on Laurie's back patio very early in the morning. We both look tired, but check out Laurie's view! Schweet!

One of the many rooms in Laurie's house. I want her to decorate my place someday!!

Me and Brianna made many friends during our short stay in Newport Beach.

My one and only picture of the Hollywood sign. This was taken from Brianna's car while speeding through downtown LA. It was actually hard to find a place to take a picture of the sign, but I kind of felt like I needed one anyway.

This is PJ. She was a very sweet and entertaining hostess.

Please ignore the bad picture of the power lines, but this is Sierra Madre, where I totally want to move to! Tree lined streets and mountain views and a cute little area that looks like Red Bank, NJ. It felt like home somehow. The clouds are kind of covering the mountain, but it looked really cool.

Here I am with Robert, Brianna and Laurie, laughing about how the bobcat that lives in Laurie's back yard had just dragged off a baby. Well, people shouldn't just leave those things laying around!
Well, enough pictures. I have to finish stringing a necklace for work now, even though it is late and I should be in bed. Oh well.
OH! Our movie, No. 12 is on the On The Lot website!!! For those of you who haven't heard of it, On The Lot is a reality show/competition for young filmmakers. I think it airs in the spring, and they're going to start selecting contestants soon. If you have time, please log on and put up some comments! (Preferrably good ones!!) Thanks bitches!

There hasn't been much going on with me lately, hence my no posting, but I figured I'd bore you all with the details of what I am up to.
I put my Brak necklace up for sale on eBay, since it has seen no action on I am hoping it will not only generate interest in the necklace itself, but also in the other stuff I am trying to sell. I need money! Plus, I have so much cool jewelry around here that I make and then shove into a drawer somewhere. It deserves to be worn, damn it.
Also speaking of money, I finally sat down and calculated all of my debt a few weeks ago, and have been slowly recovering from my mild heart attack. It's not too bad, but it's still more than I should ever have. Debt has been heavy on my mind lately, since I am determined to one day get a handle on all of these bills and be in control of my money, not the other way around. So far I've made really good progress, so I am hoping I can keep it up and one day have no trouble getting a mortgage for a real, actual house of my very own. I'll get there.
Aside from that I have been cleaning up. Since Kane and I moved in to this condo, the mini-blinds in our bedroom have been coated with dust and some weird sludge-y type crap. It's gross, I tried to clean them once but quickly gave up when the cleaner was mixing with the dust-cakes and turning it into mud and smearing worse than before. So tonight I filled a big bucket with soapy water and cleaned the shit out of those blinds, and to my surprise they are actually white. Yay! Now I don't have to keep the curtains drawn in shame all the time! (See, I told you I would bore you.)
On Friday after work Kane and I are leaving to go to L.A. with Brianna and Robert for the weekend. I am excited to go and finally see it all for myself, and see if I could live there. But I am also scared, because I feel a lot of pressure to like it. Not from Kane or anybody, but from myself. But really I just want out of Arizona and a brand new start somewhere new, but I am trying to stay open to California and ignore all the negative crap I keep hearing. We'll see.
One last thing I did was I watched the Puppy Bowl yesterday. With a vacant yet exuberant smile on my face. Especially during the kitty halftime show. In case you missed it, you can see the highlights here.
See? Much more fun than football, and much cuter than watching Prince sashay his tiny ass across the stage in the rain!

Most of you prbably already saw this on, but I just can't get over how cute this is! This cat is amazing.

Although, if you owner strapped scuba gear on you and threw you in the water, you'd have no choice but to just hang out down there too. Also, none of you should have "owners". Slavery was abolished in 1865.

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful 2007 so far. Enjoy it while it lasts, because I heard today that a meteor is gonna hit Earth in 2029 and kill us all.
On that note, here's my current favorite clip from The Brak Show:


Coming soon to my website, The Brak Necklace!!!! Yay!
I drew Brak myself on shrinky dink paper, then colored him and baked him till he shrank, then made a necklace out of him! You can't tell from the picture, but the dark stones are actually navy blue with glittery specks, called blue goldstone. Very pretty and inter-galacticy, just like Braky Wacky!


What do you think? I plan on making a few more of these, although probably not with the same beads, since goldstone like this is hard to find. I also really hope this wouldn't be some kind of a copyright violation, because that would suck. Far be it from me to actually research that stuff.
Anyway, when that killer meteor hits, I know I wanna be wearing a super-awesome Brak necklace. I don't know about you.
