All I wanted was a Pepsi

I had a weird day today. It felt like it was a never-ending conquest to find me some Diet Pepsi. Normally I wouldn't be so panicky about it, but I've been cutting WAY back on my soda intake... diet or not, the stuff is horrible for you!

Anyway, after coming home from an awesome class session I watched Some Kind of Monster while finishing Jenny's page. Sorry it's so small. I've tried to upload to DST, but yet again, I can't get the stinker to work!!

Penny Arcade

For those of you who DON'T know... I'm a total dork. Now, I'm not as dorky as the people (the Gabe and Tycho in my life) that introduced me to Penny Arcade, nor am I as bad as those that actually read them religiously and understand ALL that is mentioned on this site... but I DO enjoy the comics quite often.

They relate mostly to the world of video gaming... some other techno speak is included, but mostly VG dorkiness prevails there. This particular comic gave me the giggles. I kinda see myself this way, especially after playing Mortal Kombat on a reincarnated DreamCast last night. I was kicking butt... but it is after all only because I'm truly talented at the art of button mashing, not because I actually KNEW what I was doing. I wouldn't dream or DARE to try something like Guitar Hero, I know my limits.

Do the iPod shuffle

I stole this from Melessa. I'm not sure how she found my blog... but she commented one day and I check in on hers about once a week. Don't you love being nosey? I do! Reading random stranger's blogs is the best! She's a bad-girl Mormon too. LOL We're the funnest types!!

She had a fun idea though... she posted the first 10 songs on her iPod that shuffled in. Here's what I got:

1. Don't Speak- No Doubt
2. Just Another Day- Oingo Boingo
3. Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds- The Beatles
4. Swing Swing- All American Rejects
5. Dude Looks Like a Lady- Aerosmith
6. I Saw Her Standing There- The Beatles
7. Stupify- Disturbed
8. Come Original- 311
9. Behind the Crimson Door- H.I.M.
10. Crazy- Aerosmith

Did any surprise you? Not me. I'm pretty good about keeping "embarrassing" music to a minimum on my iPod. I'm always afraid that Psycho Mike from KROQ is gonna show up and do the whole iPod police thing. That would be BAD. (Click here for another funny Psycho Mike moment... he has a run in with a Scientologist!)

Going to party!

I've got a birthday party for some dear friends' 1 year old and a shower for my cousin's fiance. Since the birthday was a "no gift" party all I had to concentrate on was stuff for Miss Kerry.

Here's what I created for her!

*All things found on GMD. Quickpage, Candy Coated 8/07 collab kit & Beachy kit
They already have a lot of stuff they need so the shower theme is "date night." We're supposed to bring things that would be fun for a date. I'm going to give them a popcorn bowl, popcorn, candy and a GC to Tarjay for a movie. Yay!!

Shabby Princess has been offering adorable desktops for free through her blog lately. I don't think I've shared what I've done with them on here yet so I thought I'd post them now. ;)

Fun huh? Just wanted to post these because I really like them, but it's not like I'll use them after the month is over y'know? :D

Chunky Monkey no more

I've joined a new weight loss site. It tracks your calories for you and tells you what you should take in to lose weight (2, 1 1/2 or 1 lb. a week). Then you can tell it what you're eating and any physical activity that you're doing to contribute to your daily calorie count. It also helps you keep track of how many glasses of water you've had that day. Check out my profile here.

You also have the option of not letting the world see what you eat each day... I just use it to help me be more accountable for what passes these lips! I've done WW points before, but I'm WAY too lazy to keep track and do all that math. Here it's pretty much already in there for me!! Wish me luck!

Rolling... and then road block!

So, I'm having a blast Jenny's pictures of her little boy. His name is Gavin and this is the first time he goes swimming. Ain't he cute? Anyway, I've been on a scrapbooking roll lately and then I'm making these adorable pages (Gina Miller is the greatest thing since the Wacom tablet) and now I can't figure out a dang title! Road block!!

Credits so far: GM collab In the Sea kit, Val Foster's matting action & assorted Laura Barden photo actions
Can anyone give me some input? I'm tapped! I even know what alpha I want to use! I just can't figure out what to make it SAY!
