moons over my hammy

i saw this conversation on facebook today and laughed. ah so many nights wasted at denny's in my early years ordering only french fries and water and sitting for hours and hours. oh and the downingtown denny's was waaaay cooler than than reading denny's. but unfortunately the reading one was a lot closer.

** disclaimer ** i am and never was a goth chick. i was posting this because of the mention on denny's. seriously. i was a raver. ask anyone

worlds ugliest dog contest

boxers with underbites of the world unite! last week was your week!

June 26, 2009 (Petaluma, CA) – As the crowd chanted “Pabst, Pabst,” the celebrity judges deliberated between the so-named boxer-mix shelter dog and Rascal, a former world champion Chinese Crested to determine who would be the 2009 World’s Ugliest Dog Champion tonight at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. First timer Miles Egstad from Citrus Heights, California was stunned at Pabst’s win. “ I don’t think he’s that ugly!” he said of his boxer mix whose under bite was his most compelling physical feature. His sweet personality made him an audience favorite.

The Chinese Crested breed has dominated the contest for more than seven years and in this year’s contest represented more than 50% of the 2009 entries in the pedigree class. But Pabst, who was given his name because he had a “ bitter beer face”, according to his owner quickly won the crowd and the judges soon followed. Egstad, 25, first saw the contest on television and his friends urged him to enter his dog.

our kitchen renovations begin tomorrow! i can't believe it. this is a picture of what the kitchen looked like when i bought the house. and sadly, it hasn't been much improved since then. other than a good scrubbing and painting everything white to give the illusion of clean. supposedly the project will take about 2 weeks. fingers crossed that's the case.
tomorrow also marks my first day NOT as an urban outfitters employee and my first day as owner/operator of LeanGreenClean. ahhhh! new beginnings all over the place.

so i have given my notice at urban after six long years. i'm going to throw my energy into starting my own eco friendly housekeeping business which i have named lean green clean. i'm really excited about this new adventure. and scared. but anything's better than what i'm doing now. for now, instead of a website i have a blog - check it out here. and wish me luck!

and thanks for sheena for helping me with my logo!! we used puffy paints. so fun!! now if we only had a bedazzler!

back off

the food stealer at work strikes again! as does the passive aggressive notes! this note went up on the fridge a few weeks ago. i love it!

in other news i am stuck at the dallas airport, sleeping on a cot that makes farting noises each time i move. my flight from dallas to philly was canceled late last night and of course all the hotel rooms are booked. so many flights were canceled. i do feel lucky that i was able to score a cot but it still doesn't make things any better. i was going to post a picture of my little bedroom set up here but honestly it makes me sad and definitely does not make me laugh....

no parking #2

ok this one is a little different but still the beak up of park and -ing. i do love this sign though. it's one of many cute things about rhinebeck.

no parking #1

i've been noticing it's pretty much the norm to break up "park" and "-ing" onto 2 different lines when making a "no parking" sign. interesting. also, is "no parking" sign a misuse of quotes????
