random confession

When I strip*, I do so while humming the Perry Mason theme song.

*pretend to strip or change my shirt while my sister is in the room... I have no reason to strip for real :( lol

a nothing post

So, I have nothing to write about, but it's been so long since I blogged last that I figured I had to get something new up here. Now, a quick run-down of things:

I'm back to eating healthy after a month-long break that started when I got sick and couldn't eat anything at all.

I have allergies. Lots of sneezing.

I'm 90% finished with a large sewing project that I haven't particularly enjoyed. Only 10% left.

I LOVE the first 3 hours of work. We have great conversations which are far from appropriate. :) -Acemaking, fake pregnancies, women becoming men, human postal scales, inappropriate jokes, etc. If you don't know what those things are and want to, you'll have to come work my crapjob with me.

It has rained so much this month, which is fantastic. Thunderstorms are my favorite!

I have a vacation schedule next week that I'm excited for. The only two things causing me stress are: my car does not have AC(long stupid mechanic story), so it's gonna be a miserable ride. I don't know where I'm staying either. Also, I have some things I need to get done before I go and I'm running out of time.

I'm making new watches all the time and having fun!

I got a sweet kiss last night. It was from Mason (my nephew) and I was covered in baby slobber. He was so happy about having kissed me though. It was worth it :)

I ate a McDonalds last night. That means I've met my McD's quota for the year. Once a year seems to be my rate.

I want to punch a coworker for taking tomorrow off work. The early morning hours will be much more boring with him sleeping away at home. Maybe I'll call him repeatedly to interrupt said sleep. I'll be bored, so I might as well.

I'm reading Stardust, which is not a genre I ever thought I'd read, but I'm enjoying it thus far.

Sirens give me anxiety (I just heard sirens.. that's not just a random comment). It goes back to one of my earliest memories. Anyway.

I've got more stupid ramblings, but I'll spare humanity from having to read them (well- the three people that read my blog...) LOL

under arrest

Last night was awesomely exciting in the perfect way... short-lived, non-scary drama. Just a crazy situation and lots of laughter.

I was sitting on the porch with Jen and Austin (almost 3) came over with some handcuffs and told me that I was under arrest. Jen warned me NOT to let Austin put the cuffs on me because they are real and they didn't have a key. I played along with Austin without being cuffed.

Twenty minutes later, Kassie (almost 12) and her friend came back from their bike ride. Jen and I looked up from our conversation and realized one second too late that Stevie had cuffed Kassie... I stayed outside with Mason while Jen oiled Kassie's wrist and tried to slide the cuffs off. There were tears and frustration, but Kassie remained cuffed. Jen called her Ex (Brandon, a cop) and asked him to swing by with a handcuff key. He explained that he couldn't get away, but that he would dispatch someone from Logan City to come unlock the cuffs.

Officer Hoth arrived like some actual emergency was taking place and declared that his handcuff key didn't fit and that the cuffs were actually a toy. Ok, fine. These are the most realistic TOY cuffs I've ever seen. The neighbors started to gather as the cop tried numerous things to get those cuffs off. Nothing seemed to work. He even called his wife to see if their kids had a set of toy handcuffs. They didn't. Brandon called back to see if we'd had any luck yet and offered to come by with a bolt cutter.

The paper clip finally did the trick and Kassie was freed. Those cuffs found their way to the dumpster so we won't find ourselves reliving this situation again. LOL
