Um, so … yeah

February 19, 2009

The posts I had rattling around in my head are no longer relevant, and the only other one I have planned I can’t do until … well, I don’t really know. It just depends on how fast I can do … something. Um, so … yeah. Hey! Look! Over there! Something shiny! *runs away*

It’s here!

October 31, 2008

Hooray, my Band From TV CD & DVD arrived today! I knew it wouldn’t take until Monday! I already have it in iTunes, ready for my drive to Marion later. Speaking of which, I need to go buy a sweatshirt and make my costume.

Happy Halloween!

My iPod is hungry

October 29, 2008

It’s become a voracious little gadget, and I’m trying to keep it fed. My iTunes library pales in comparison to Jenn’s, but I’m working on it. Jenn’s hooking me up with some stuff Friday, and a guy at work is looking to see if he has some songs that I want. What he doesn’t have my parents do, so yay! Also, a CD that I’ve very much been looking forward to is on its way here, and I’m very excited! A DVD too, but that’s not for the iPod.

Anyway, the CD is “Hoggin’ all the Covers” by Band From TV. Never heard of them? How sad for you; they’re very good. Basically, they’re a group of actors who do covers of various songs and raise money for different charities. Go check out their Web site, then order the CD. You’ll like it.

My copy is “in transition” according to Amazon, having left the Cincinnati shipping facility early this morning. Estimated time of arrival is Monday, but I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long. I mean geez, Cinci is only a few hours away!

Meme-orable facts about me

November 26, 2007

MB tagged me to share five random and weird facts about myself, so here goes:

1. The second toe on both of my feet is longer (taller?) than the big toe.

2. I only have to wear a contact in my left eye.

3. I like to color, in coloring books, with crayons.

4. I’m not a fan of blueberries.

5. I’m getting fixed on Dec. 7. 

 The rules of this here meme are:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Don’t break the chain!

I’m a loser, so I only have one person I can tag. Well, there are three others I could tag, but I’m not even sure they post anymore, so I’ll just leave it at one:


Welcome to Purple Melange

November 4, 2007

Formerly known as “The Cat’s Ass.” I decided that since I moved the blog, I was going to change the name. That’s probably frowned upon in the blogosphere, but I don’t really care. New look, new me (kind of), so new name.

It was a serious pain in the ass going through all the old posts and fixing the font, adding tags and adding titles, but that’s OK. I think I’m going to like it here.

It’s true

You do find out who your friends are in times of possible catastrophe. And it’s pretty interesting.

Purse meme

Bottomless pit

MB did this ages ago, but I’m just getting around to it. Here’s what was in my lovely floral soccer-mom purse, which still has the admittance tag from a bead show over the summer:

Large pink comb with rubberband, headband, wallet full of papers and photos, contact solution and eye drops, loose change (85 cents, I think), gum given out at the county fair, warm vanilla sugar hand sanitizer, coconut lime verbena lotion, cell phone, band aids (from a bowling alley in Akron), physical therapy appointment card, Excedrin migrain, Pamprin bottle with Aleve also in it, two Aleve cold & sinus pills, pack of gum & IHOP mints, receipts, another appointment card and some random papers, Kleenex, stuff from the Titanic exhibit at COSI in Columbus, gift cards, coffee shop stamp card with license, debit card & insurance card hidden underneath, matches, mints & pens taken from hotels, a thank you card from the former intern at work, too many lip things, Burt’s Bees lemon butter cuticle cream, a notepad, oil-absorbing sheets, and two fortune cookies.

I bought a new purse a week ago, and no, not everything here was transferred – but most of it was.

On a roll

November 17, 2005

I was concerned that my three-day streak of wanting to sit in the bathroom and bawl my eyes out would end Wednesday, but I really shouldn’t have been concerned. I was ready to do that after being at work maybe two hours, which really isn’t a very good thing.

I don’t even want to talk about it, it disgusts me and upsets me so much, and I’m pretty sure that not many people would get it. I’m sure I’d just be pegged as being overly dramatic and having “poor me” syndrome.

It’s almost like a conspiracy to drive me completely over the edge. It’s almost like an extension of home. Yeah, chew on that for a while and see if you can figure it out. I bet some of you can.

Our new sixth editor that I absolutely adored (and still do of course, but:) left us and we’ve been four days without her and it already sucks even more than I remember it sucking before she was here. So Sarah, if you happen to read this, please, please please come back!

But, you know, it’s not just work that feeds the need for the fetal position.

Editor’s note: This was written last night, and while I’m still stressed out, I’m off today and feel a bit better. I’m going to do the purse meme in a bit to cheer myself up.

I finally got around to doing the photo thing, but now there are lots of fun pictures for you to look at. Most of them are of, yes, the animals, but they’re cute, I promise!

All this figuring out of Flickr has made me hungry. Night!
