"You know, the one with the Mercedes, swimming pool, and room for a pony."

I almost gave up on this thing. I guess I changed my mind. I haven't done much lately that I'd like to write about. I needed new beads a wire and figured I'd find it cheaper at the Walmart in Shamokin since that's where I got my first bunch a few years ago. So we went to Shamokin this weekend, which was supposed to be an awesome good time but ended up being just me, my mom and the dog cleaning someone else's house.
We finally go to Walmart and I'm so excited to get more supplies only to find out that they have decreased their craft section considerably. I found some wire and some mediocre beads. Took them home and found out that this time instead of getting wire that was too thick, I've got wire that is too thin. Awesome.
Then we went to the Shamokin neighbor's house so my mom could get the down low on the house she may or may not be buying. I hope she does. She really hates her job and wants to just move up there and retire. It a cute house. And if my cousin gets the house next to my uncle and my mom gets this house which shares the backyard with the other two, we will have an awesome trio of mountain houses and a giant back yard and hopefully the in ground pool my cousin wants.

And a pony.

Gently Used.

I feel like I've been cleaning for years.
Some more interesting finds though. I found my awesome lip balm making kit so I will definitely be making some more in the very near future. I also found the cat-covered Address/Note/Appointment Book that my grandmother gave me. And she was thoughtful enough to write in her friends and family's addresses and phone numbers for me. Saved me a lot of time, let me tell you. She also included some of her activities and appointments during 1997. Unfortunately, as i was going through all my newly acquired friends' addresses my mom informed me that nearly half of them have died since 1997. Bummer. What am I going to do with a bunch of dead people's addresses?
I think this gift proves that I'm the favorite grandchild. I bet if she gave anyone else a book like this it would be completely empty, and thus only half the gift that I got.

remember that dude who tried to sell the holy toast on eBay?

Ok so...the party went well. I was too tired from all the baking to have as good a time as I could have but I enjoyed myself all the same. Except for the part where my cousin made me go in the moon bounce after I'd had 3 margaritas and a beer. This was the same cousin who thought it was a good idea to tell stories about frozen, dead hookers at a child's party. And beer glass vomit stories. And woodchisel-through-the-hand stories.
...Moving on. I got to hang out with my family, including my sister, who gave me a lovely shout out over on her blog. Thanks for the name-droppage.
I think my cupcakes went over well. They better have because I am now completely turned off to cupcakes and if no one liked them that sacrifice would have been all for nothing.

In other news, LiveNation is starting "No Service Fee Wednesdays" as a summer promotion. This might be one of the greatest pieces of information I'll receive this year since I seem to buy concert tickets more than the average person.

I'm running out of things to say. I'll say "Hi, Anna!" since she found me here and is stalking me from over at LiveJournal.

Ok. I'm done now....Ooh! Married With Children is on! I love that theme song. :)

PS. There is a panel of wood next to me that has a mark on it that looks like either the Virgin Mary with her arms open, as she is often seen, or a penguin. I guess that would depend on who you asked. If I learn how to put pictures on here maybe I'll post the proof and you can decide for yourself.

ETA: Photographic proof! .....okay so maybe it looked more like Mary/a Penguin from where i was sitting...without my glasses. But you can still see what i mean. Right?
