noriko's nails

She got them done in Japan and said the woman did everything by hand and that it took a couple hours.

I love the monkey.

There will be two chapters to my life

Before Me. I Am Mariah and after Me. I Am Mariah.   

I apologize for the quality of that song, the real version is much better, but apparently there are only cheap bootlegs out there at this point for me to post on my blog.  But trust the people when they speak:
Also this:

My favorite tracks so far are #1-#19.  I strongly recommend buying three copies, two to play simultaneously on separate sound systems pointed directly at either side of your head and a third copy to hold and cherish while you listen.

Stopped pulling

I ran out of coconut oil and keep forgetting to pick up more at the grocery store so it's now been over a week that I haven't pulled.  And I was doing so good at it!!!

I did find out though that my company added dental coverage to my health plan so at least I can look forward to going to the dentist soon regardless.

In the meantime I may have bought a leather jacket.  Cause you know, it's summer in Miami...

Middle of the week day off

So I finally got to visit Yeti in her new home!  The only thing I didn't like was that Daniel doesn't have fresh snow shipped in daily for the backyard, but otherwise it was a very nice home.  And way more comfortable for hanging out than the park.

She wasn't really licking my face, just grossly sniffing at my nose and mouth and rubbing her mouth against me.  Eventually she just kind of sat there pressing her face against mine.

I love her.

After lunch and spending time with the dogs I did a little more window shopping...

yep, this terrifies me

I try not to think about sinkholes because of how much it scares me but I got sucked in (no pun intended) to a documentary about them on tv.  Of course I needed to google videos of sinkholes caught on camera during the commercial break.


Can you imagine?!  They said the motion sensor alarms were set off and that's why the fire department showed up.  I wish I could see their reaction upon finding that the earth had opened up and swallowed a handful of corvettes.

Apparently that's a "wash out" not a sinkhole but still.  STILL.

Of course on this documentary I'm watching they mentioned that Florida is a sinkhole hotspot.  Maybe it's time for me to surrender and return to New York...

Would the detective do this?

Thank you Jonathan for sending this to me, and no, I don't think the detective would do this.  Not that he doesn't love me or would defend me, I just think he wouldn't be paying attention.  

Regardless, I love that video.  The cat was on top of things so quickly!  I hope that child understands that he is now indebted to that cat forever.  Just like with Sinbad in "First Kid".  

Just like...

finally, a fun way to save

Joe and I went out to use up some random drink tickets I had laying around yesterday and in our after drink wandering he took me to some weird candy shop I had never even noticed before.  Among the random junk for sale was the Fanny Bank.  If it weren't so counterintuitive to my actual savings goals to waste my money on it, I really wanted to get it.

Speaking of my savings goals, I am laying low waiting for my paycheck on friday, and then also possibly waiting for my next paycheck at the end of the month, but based on those two I am looking forward to making a large purchase in the near future.

I've been pretty focused on that, which is why I haven't posted much.  If you want some idea you can watch the vlog that Mike did:

you and me both

Why didn't I think to get this in the back window of my truck?

Of course I was with Mike when I saw this and he immediately reminded me of the Assman:

Obviously this is my future.

the only thing I'm looking forward to

I haven't been motivated to post anything lately, been too focused on work foolishness.  I've been waiting and waiting and today should be the end of my waiting.  At least from here on I will have a better idea of what I can expect from the coming weeks and months.

I WAS going to go car shopping this weekend but now I just don't know.  I'll probably just spend my saturday listening to this:

rabbit rabbit rabbit

Meghan got me this morning before I woke up but otherwise nobody else has realized it's the first yet so I'm getting you all with this post.

Flipped the calendar page last night and filled in my work schedule for the month.  One of those months where I know everything will be so different in my life by the time I get down to the bottom of the page.

In the meantime, I find the picture for this month true and comforting:

And the guy at the bottom is me!

I'm guessing I'll be saying that more than once this month.
