I got six minutes!

Well, its been forever and a day since I last posted, and I guess I haven't felt like I've had much to say. But I thought that I would drop a post anyways.. But now I have 5 minutes and I don't know what I want to say.. I haven't done anything crafty lately.. But I've decided that I want to make some resin coasters..SO I bought some liquid latex last night to make a mold for them.. So that should be an interesting project..
I've recently acquired a Blackberry.. B/F got a new one and so I adopted his old one which he's only had since October of last year, plus he keeps things nice and clean so its basically new! These things are so crazy, its like a tiny little computer phone. I don't have a data plan so I'm wasting most of it's potential, but oh well.. You can download games and apps and all kinds of stuff for this thing, plus it has a slot for micro memory card... Oh, you can also put videos and MP3's on it. It really is pretty cool. His is the new and improve version so its more like the real web (with a pointer and stuff) and his is set up to be more user friendly, but for me the one I have is cool.
Well, time is up, I've gone over. Not that I really care if the the slow poke has to fend for himself for a few more minutes, but I try to be on time (I'm usually not though) :) Hope ya'll are doing good and things are good. I know they are for Kim, so I'm going to send a shout out to her on getting a new job!
WAY TO GO KIM!!! You ROCK!! :)

Addiction to cans...

Yes, its true! Since I've decided to "collect" cans, I can hardly drive down the road, I think yesterday on my way to and from my sister's I must have seen like 20 of them along the hi-way and on/off ramps. I mean that's almost a whole pound of cans! Plus, I think people who litter suck! That trash gets on the side of the road somehow! I guess I will just have to stick to roads where is it safe to stop and pick shit up off the street.. And you know your an addict when you're thinking of "how/when can I get more _____" or you spend your day thinking of ways to get more. I mean I do have a boring ass job, and I don't have a ton of shit to do so I do have "extra" time to think about this stuff.. SO it's not totally out of the ordinary for me to think of shit in a semi-compulsive manner.. I mean I was just dying to get home yesterday to make a loaf of honey wheat bread (using my Mc'D's honey, which was a pain in the ass!). But to further demonstrate my "addiction" I even made a pretty "Can Count" log! I have each day and the dates and then the total.. So then I will know how many I have!!! Hahaha!! Evil cans! Stupid people who litter!

I died laughing when I saw this shirt... It's almost as great as the "You have died of dysentery" shirt(reference to the old computer game "Oregon Trail"). I just might buy it.. I have no clue what it means. But it's so ridiculous that it's funny! I found it on The Onion .
Well, my MN WILD won in OT last night! Way to go guys! (like they'd read my blog!) They have another game tonight. MN Twins lost (somehow!)
Today the temp is supposed to get up to 70! I should go outside and get a tan.. But anyways, it's almost lunch time, so I'm going to go see what's on the menu! And since I'm an addict (and since I can't type, I just typed as "ASSict") I have to talk about cans again..
Cans picked up on sunday from the street: 5
Cans from work on Monday: 6, plus 1 of my own, plus 1/2 on I found in my sister's yard!
Other days from work I've gotten 4 or 5 (a day) we have a lot of can handlers around here. Wish me luck!

Yeah, I'm still here..

I guess I haven't posted in a long time, I knew it was a while ago but didn't realize that it was on the 1st. I'm trying to think of whats been going on since then.. All kinds of stuff really, but nothing terribly exciting. Last weekend we had a party, well not really a party but just a family get-together. The weather was beautiful so I spent basically all day outside. In the am we bought some new patio furniture because the hail destroyed our other one. This one is black metal, it's pretty cool.
This past weekend B/F and I went ice skating, but they were having one of these E-Cyling events in the parking lot (and across the street) of the place. It's a giant sports complex so the skating rinks are on one end but we still had to wait in the long lines of traffic to get in and out of the place. But it was a fin time. It seems like people just take thier kids and drop them off there and they skate willy-nilly with no supervision and some kid cut me off about 3 times and then the last time he ran right into me and grabbed ahold of him and spun him around and he had this classic look on his face, the "please don't ream me a new one" look and he was all "SORRY!" and I was like yeah, thats the 3rd time you cut me off, he stayed out of our way after that.. Then after that he had to drop off some promotional stuff for the RSE Streetteam. We went to Hot Spot and dropped off a poster, some stickers, flyers and his lemon candies. It was pretty cool because Hot Spot is a local skate shop, and they are very cool to let us put stuff there. I bought a cool hoodie with skulls on it and B/F got a DC shirt. Josh that works there is always really nice and we try to always go on Saturdays, when Josh is there. This time he gave us some stickers and some DC wristbands. SO cool. Thanks Josh, you Rock!
Sunday we watched baseball and hockey. Not the WILD though, they are on tonite. The series is ties 1-1 SO they need to start winning!!!!
The past few weeks have been a repeat of past weeks, nice weather then snow, then nice weather and then more snow. I think that we are done with the snow now, since it might get to 70 sometime this week..
On the bowling front, my team was the 1st place team for the 2nd half, but then we hod the roll-offs (against the 1st place team from the 1st half) and they beat us, but only by 50 pins (which I guess is a lot) they won the 1st and 2nd game but we did win the 3rd. The only thing that sucks is that the banquet is like 20 (maybe more) miles away and I just don't know if I feel like wasting my gas.. Even though thats when you find out all the stuff you've won for the season.. I still have to think about it..
Saturday I bought a bread maker for my Mom, it seams to work pretty well. We've only made one loaf and we didn't have any bread flour.. But the bread was good anyways I'm going to try out the Honey Wheat, however, I wandered around Wally's looking for honey and couldn't find it! Who the hell knows where the honey is? So, me being the resourceful kind of gal that I am, I'm going to use the honey that I have from McDonald's! One time they gave me a bunch and I just threw it in my desk at work.. So that's what I'm using.
As for this week, I think B/F and I are going to be doing more promo stuff and I'm planning on taking Friday off, just to boycott this crap hole! I've been particularly irritated with this place lately. Mainly because people can't show up to work their shifts.
A while back I was talking to a co-worker and he was telling me about selling aluminun cans for $$ and I remember that we used to do that a long time ago but the price of aluminum had gone down so then Mom just started giving them to the church, but now I've decided that I want to collect them and sell them. So everyday I scour the plant for cans. I can count on one guy for at least 2 everyday. And yesterday I saw some down the street and I walked down to get them and I ended up finding 5, I was pretty excited. I've also gotten the B/F into it. I mean all you have to do is save up your cans, how hard is that? Maybe you don't get a ton of $ from it but it's $ you didn't have anyways. So when we get around to selling them I'll let'cha all know how it goes.
As far as crafts I have a few projects that I would like to get done. But we'll see how that goes.

Yeah, it's been two weeks..

not that I've seen anyone complaining that I haven't updated anything.. Other than "Fred" stopping by to tell me that my blog is boring.. tell me something I didn't already know. Well, sadly to say I don't have much.. B/F and I went to a movie over the weekend, we saw 21. It was pretty good. He hasn't wanted to see a movie in like 6 years, so I figured what the hell. And I neither of us fell asleep or anything! Plus we went when it was $5.
The weather here has been crazy, yesterday it snowed like 6 inches. And today it is going to be in the 40's so its all going to melt. But I bet that we needed the snow for the lakes and rivers and crap. Plus, I thought it was pretty (sorry Mom). I tried to get her to admit that it was pretty last night on the trees and stuff, but she wouldn't admit it. I don't really care what it does anymore. Because it will change in a few weeks and I'll have to bitch about something else :)
Last but not least.. well I have 2 more things. My bowling team only needs to get 1 point this week to win this half of the season. I'm so excited, I've never been on a team that was 1st place at I don't even try that hard to do good! So I'm hoping that we win a bunch and not just the one point. Then next week the 2 first place teams (one for each 1/2) will have a roll-off to see which team is "The best". And I guess the fact that my MN Twins are 1-0 is something to note.. And my MN Wild are leading the division is pretty awesome too. Well, I think that's all the time I have right now since I'm the only one working today. Sorry if anyone was expecting something great. Nothing but crap around here....
