perception of which is evoked

by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440–490 nm.

out on the patio... ha I match my painting.

this is my up-do ..the light shows off the range of shades. I love new color time and new cuts. LOVE IT!

"I am the only one searching for you

and if I get caught
then the search is through.
And the stories you hear, you know they never add up
I hear the natives fussin' at the data chart
Be quiet, the weather's on the night news
Empty homes, plastic cones
Stolen rims, are they alloy or chrome?
Well, I've got style
Miles and miles
So much style that it's wasted

Now she's the only one who always inhales
Paris is stale and it's war if we fail
And in the migrant hotels, they never sleep
They never will
Their souls are crumblin' like a dirt clawed hole
Your cigarette cupped to the inside
Empty homes, plastic cones
Stolen rims, are they alloy or chrome?
Well, I've got style
Miles and miles
So much style that it's leavin'
This pattern's torn and we're weavin'
This pattern's torn and we're weavin' in it"

I was naming my top 5 albums I would take with me on a road trip tonight to a new friend. This EP popped in my head quickly as all 4 songs are amazing. This is weird because I actually don't have the cd any longer. I haven't even thought about it in a few years. I quickly found all the songs online to give them a quick listen and walk down memory lane. So good So good. I just love it when you remember a gem from before and since it's been awhile it's as if you are hearing it for the first time...analyzing lyrics, bass lines, weird chord progressions with mixed random drum fills.

Now to find this on vinyl. I can't wait to see them live next September in NYC. They have been on my list of "wish I could have seen before they broke up"... and now I can!!!

Can you hear me ... NOW

I found out today that my T-mobile contract is up... well actually it ended in May. I had no idea.
The phone I currently have is a piece of poo. It's falling apart.. and will just randomly shut off. Plus people always complain that they don't get my text messages until hours later, sometimes the next day. I used to get upset at people if they didn't text back in a timely manner thinking it rude, I've had to change my thinking on text etiquette. It's no fun steaming about something they didn't even get. So now .. I don't care. Text back ... don't text back. I guess if it was that important I should have just called, right? Ok I am getting off the subject.

Since my plan expired, I "qualify" for a $200 credit towards a new phone. This is the one I am thinking about getting. To me it looks like an Iphone but with a keyboard.

She was standing there with MY man

I am in love with this song. Etta James did a fabulous job but Beyonce .. well what can I say. The singing starts about 45 secs in.

"I find myself wondering if the fighting is all worth it...

... Yeah it is!

20 hours 39 mins later....I beat Resident Evil 5 this weekend!!!

"I'm content to walk a little slower

Because there's nowhere that I really need to be"

This is the philosophy I have every time I walk through the automatic red doors of the timeless world of Target. I'm no longer on a schedule. I take time to walk up and down almost all the aisles. Why exactly do I have a love for this store.. not sure, but I assure you Wal-mart gives me the opposite feeling. In and out!!!
Here are a few items that have magically appeared in my red cart I have really enjoyed.

Purex Complete 3-in-1

That is right!!! No more measuring or forgetting the dryer sheet for me. I drop this lil bad boy in... and DONE! Fresh, Clean, Static free laundry. Now I am a single gal that doesn't roll around in the mud (well .. not recently) so my clothes are easy to clean. I am sure a family of 5 wouldn't see the value in this product. I do! I will be adding this item to my regular purchasing habit. There is a dollar off coupon on the link above if you would like to try it for yourself.

Olay Quench Body Wash

Love the skin you are in.... NOW I do!!! My skin is sooooo soft because of these two products. I found the "in-shower" body lotion while in Iowa this last time. It's AMAZING. Perfect for dry winter skin.

Febreze Fall Limited Edition Scents

This spray is making my apartment smell like .. Fall. The trees are burning the sky with all it's glory, the air is crisp in the morning and night, my windows open to allow all that goodness in. This spray has really lifted this to a new level. It's just about better then baking.... but not, there is nothing better then baking in the fall. But until I get to making banana bread, pumpkin pie or apple crisp this will have to do.

I found this episode of This American Life interesting.

I had no idea how health insurance started in the US and how cute a hedgehog could be.
I think Mazer needs a buddy.... eh? eh?

Locked and Loaded!

So when I am not doing arts and crafts.. this is what I am into.

There is nothing like playing RE on a chilly fall/winter evening. This game rocks so far. The partnership is one of the best ones yet. Sheva isn't annoying....It's hard but not too hard. RE4 I think was harder. There are less puzzles. I really liked the puzzles in the early ones. I might have to say Code Veronica is my favorite. Although the graphics are AMAZING with this game. Is it wrong for me to upgrade my TV so I can enjoy the high quality graphics. Well since I have no funds for purchasing a new TV.. I guess I will have to make due. I rearranged my living room so every piece of furniture would be a good spot to play from. ha... yeah I know don't say it.

I have xbox live (galfunseeker) I can play with others if I chose, so far I have only played Battle Field 1943 with Matt and all his friends. That is pretty fun. I am starting to get the hang of the system/controller. I have always been a PlayStation gal so ... it was slow going. THANKS to my favorite brother for hooking me up with an XBOX and RE5. He really knows how to tug at my heart strings. By far the best gift I have received in ... well YEARS!

Now I have some saving of the world to do! Did you notice the chainsaw guy in the trailer? Yeah... I'm fighting him next. Scary!

My weekend ... projects.

I found myself traveling for work Thursday and Friday in Greenville, SC so I thought since Atlanta is only a few hours away why not stop by and say hi to some friends. I met up with Adam for much needed beverage and catching up. After hanging out in Lil 5 Points for a bit my belly was saying TIME for FOOD! We went to this very cool restaurant R. Thomas. I had a wonderful cup of peppermint tea and portabella mushroom potato with cheese. Hit the spot. After a concert, Hope Sandoval to be exact. Adam scored press passes so I didn't have to shell out 25 bucks, which afterwards and the lack of .. well.. the show was just boring this fact made me more happy. On the other hand, I returned to my car in the R.Thomas parking lot to find it had been broken into. WHAT?! My ipod (now the 2nd one stolen from my car) and my work laptop....GONZO!
The Atlanta thieves are pretty high-tech ... they drilled a little hole in my car door right underneath the handle and keyhole. According to the police, that is so they don't set off the car alarm...well...sneaky sneaky. This pretty much killed my evening. We headed to meet up with peeps at another establishment but I just wasn't in the mood. I headed to Malissa's place to rest my head and was greeted by all kinds of loving from her dog. After spending some awesome cuddling time with this guy:

Chaplin is Malissa's dog. She let me crash on her couch saving me mucho dollars. He is just so friendly, made me miss Mazer.
I decided to cut my trip short and head back home Saturday. I am glad I did as it gave me some time to clean, rearrange my place and do a bit of arts/crafts. Perfect fall activities. Here is one of my accomplishments on Sunday.
A fall headband!

Close up!

I also did this one but the picture is blurred a bit. I still need to get a headband or clip to attach it to. Super CITED to wear my new funky creations.

As all in all my weekend was pretty good. Those clever thieves didn't get me down for very long. Now.. do I buy "another" ipod or just keep with cd's in the car... that is another blogging topic in of itself.

Movie SIGN!!!!

Today I am going to spend the afternoon watching movies. Popcorn with peanut m&m's in it .. check, large refreshing Cherry Coke ... check and my most comfy movie watching clothes that are suitable for public... check! Here is what I plan to see:

1:00pm - "Who says you need to buy a guitar" I love that line and well Jack White is freakin cool!

4:05pm I am a sucker for romantic period dramas. I also love looking at the costumes. So much thought goes into every piece. Plus I need a little romance in my life and for 2 hours I will have it. "Three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain." *sigh* That is what I am talking about!

I am not sure if I will spring for 3 movies but if I do...

Here is what I am debating on seeing:

I really love fashion (Devil Wears Prada) I loved that movie. It was loosely based off of Ann Wintor. She is a strong successful woman. I am trying to be the same (outside of the fashion world).


Ellen Page is just sooo cute and awesome!

Guess who has two thumbs and new glasses?


I love my new glasses! They are lightweight and fit really well. I gave complete trust in the guy that works at the eye care center. A little over a year ago he helped me pick out my current glasses. I loved those too! I got sooo many compliments on them. This time around I told him, you pick. He had me try on about 20 pairs. This pair was the winner. I am totally sold on the square frames for my face shape. This new pair is actually metal. They are very similar but still very different from my current frames. I got my lenses replaced on those so now I will have two nice pair of glasses to chose from in the morning. The picture below with the green shirt... I still have those, they are my bedtime glasses.

I pulled a few pictures to show the evolution of my glasses. Here we go a walk thru memory lane.
