writers workshop

1.) What is your life's anthem? You know...that song that is ALWAYS in your head. The one you'd go to sing first if someone told you to sing a song right NOW. What is it and what does it mean to you?
(inspired by Tattooed Minivan Mom)

I would sing "can I make it through the 80s by Julie Brown. I know it's not the 80s any more but that is one of my favorite songs. The only other song that come to mind is 'Cause I'm a blond. Both of these were joking referred to as my theme songs in high school. I can't find a video for the 80s so here's I'm a blond. Just don't watch with out a sense of humor.

(This is from one of my favorite movies.)

2.) We love telemarketers don't we!?! Describe a memorable experience you had with one.
(inspired by Literal Dan)
I almost made one cry once... I was really upset and was waiting for a friend to call, we didn't have call waiting then, and he called and wanted to talk to my parents. I couldn't get him to hang up and so I blurted out that my parents had just been in a car accident and didn't make it. I was already crying so I guess he thought I was telling the truth and tried to console me and because I was already upset and in my its all about me phase of course it didn't work. but he apologized and sounded upset when he hung up. I still feel a little bad about that time.

3.) How much does focusing on weight affect your daily life?
(inspired by Musings Of A Blond Mom)

A lot more than it should. I was actually rather active before "The Accident" which I will tell you all about later. but because of it I was laid up for over a year, not allowed off the couch. I have not gotten back up to the same activity level nor have I worked off the weight I gained while laid up.

4.) Describe in what ways you expect too much from your significant other. Do they deserve an apology?
(inspired by Carty Party Of Three)

This one unfortunately I don't see Kensei enough to go there..

5.) List ten things that make you HAPPY.
(inspired by our irritation at our own complaining from last weeks "Sick Of" posts.)

I am happy when I am:

1. reading a good book (throw in any good ones you've read recently)

2. watching a good movie

3. hanging out with my friends

4. hanging out with Kensei

5. Going dancing I love love love to dance and don't do it nearly enough

6. sleeping

7. reading blogs

8. cooking

9. baking most especially

10. with my family.

When No One's Looking.....

I cook. I bake. I mess around (and up) the Kitchen. I have always been this way. I Love to sit at the table with 70 pounds of cookie dough and roll them out. (No I'm not joking I did at Christmas.)

I have three days off next week! (everyone jump up and down and clap your hands for me) On Tuesday I will be making cookies and a birthday cake for Jujube.

Speaking on Jujube, She got 2 dozen red roses and a box of Godiva chocolates from my mothers current boyfriend. Amazing when I was turning 11 I got barbies and grounded.

okay sorry for the short post I am pretending to work! lol

Writer's Workshop: The Me Edition

Well Mama Kat gave me a mission and I chose to accept it, although I wish she would do something about the whole this computer will self-destruct in 10 thing, the boss keeps getting mad at me!

Anyways today's prompts are all about me (at least that's how I see it;)

1.) Share a love letter.-
Well I wish i could but Kensei never has written me a letter no mater how hard I have tried to get him to.

2.) Memorial Day Weekend plans?? Do share!
This one is not so Interesting, I will be working.

3.) List ten things you are currently sick of.

Ten things I am sick of... Here we go:
10. Finding out about Awesome Shows After they have been canceled.
9. Working six out of seven days a week I want a day off...
8. Not having my car
7. I am totally sick of dealing with people who are to young to be getting hotel rooms for the
purpose they are.
6. Not having any money, I know I should be grateful to have a job and all but I even with the six
days a week I work I never seem to have any money after bills.
5. People reminding me I could have studied more in HS for a scholarship
4. Kensei getting so absorbed in his games that I can have a complete conversation by myself
3. The fact that I really want to get my hair done, but can't do it on my own.
2. The fact that the only person who can do my hair is going to charge me $200 to do it.
And the number one thing that I am sick of is:
1. the fact that I still haven't been able to start my Master Cleanse because I have heard you need at least two days of nothing to start and I haven't got to consecutive days of nothing!

4.) Put an outfit together using pictures you found online and show us what you'd LIKE to be wearing today.

What would I like to be wearing today??? Here goes!

This top because I like the style. and even though they don't necessarily match:

First off I like this skirt, I barely ever wear skirts but My ideal wardrobe would be full of them!

This coat because It goes with the top: and to top it all off:

These shoes because they are the closet to the shoes that I dream about from this book!

And because I change my outfits at least twice, one for work and one for home here goes choice number two:

The black top not the purple one with this skirt:

And these boots because I LOVE boots:
Probably the Black ones but maybe the pink.

5.) What have you been too busy to pay attention to?

I have been to busy to pay attention to a lot of things lately. My social life for one. But little things: I haven't eaten a real meal in days, I have been snacking at random intervals, and I have been to busy to actually relax.

So what about you guys did you accept Mama Kat's Mission?

Late as usual

I have a tendency to always show up late to things like fads. Usually after they have been canceled. I love to watch TV late at night. So when I am flipping channels and come across something interesting I never know what I am watching until I get hooked. After I get hooked and want to watch the whole series I find out that it was canceled years ago and get annoyed.


Dead Like Me
This was a showtime only show about a girl who dies, wow interesting plot. Then she has to be a grim reaper. Nice twist I caught the end of an episode one night and adored it. I ten went online to find out how to see the rest and found out it had been canceled in 2002. I did watch the movie that just came out though. Not Bad.

Tru Calling:
I flip past Sci-Fi every now and then, usually don't stop because I get scared easy. I never could watch Are You Afraid of the Dark, or Goosebumps. But I caught an episode where It revealed who killed her mom. That caught my attention and now I want to watch the rest. Only it was canceled after 6 episodes of the second season.

Psych and Eureka are shows still on I came to late.

See what I Mean? I have the odd tendency to come to a show at the end. Sad I know.

Sorry to sound like TV Guide but I needed to broadcast this.

If anyone is watching a good show please let me know so I can find something new to watch!

On a happy note I just noticed I have 15 followers! Thanks guys! You make me feel super special!

Random Randoms


I like Pickles. I just thought you all should know. I LOVE Dill pickles, tolerate sweet pickles and have been desperate enough to attempt to make my OWN pickles, no luck on that so far any tips would be great.

The reason I started this post out with pickles is because I am eating one! ;) Now Pickles have a LOT of juice. I know this because before I left for work I wrapped two pickles up in 7 paper towels and then wrapped them up the paper towels are SOAKED!

Okay enough about pickles. I am SUPER tired, I am taking Jujube on a two day vacation to Carrowinds (Like Six Flags) for her birthday. But we are going on a Friday and Saturday which means days I NEVER get off. I requested them and to make up for the manager working my shifts I have not had a day off on three weeks. Three weeks guys! I might get part of a day off if the guy who said he might decides to come in at 7 tonight, as of right now it is not looking good though.

I want to be able to see how many people visit me in a day. I see all these other bloggers with cute little graphs and funny searches, either I am not very funny, or I am technologically deficient.

Computer Games baffle me. I mean I love to play games as much as the next gal don't get me wrong, but WOW, and games like that i can't get into. Kensei is always starting games with me. Maple Story, Angels Online, WOW etc. I play with him for a while, do my own thing for about a month and then I am bored. I have never figured out how people can play them for hours upon hours.

Is it really pool time?? I mean I walked out this morning it was a lovely 30 degrees until noon when it jumped to 80. I don't like the heat, but I do like it when the weather does what it is supposed to.

The News on Prom is:

Well first of all this post is because I was reading my many favorite blogs and noticed they all were ganging up on me to post about prom. I was going to post a complaint about prom kids and hotels in Tales From The Audit Shift Parts one and two but decided that I would just add it here. In addition to accepting the Challenge from Keely which I will go into in a moment.

It is prom month in Sunny SC, every weekend this past month I have had several adorable little couples in formal wear coming to the hotel to check into rooms. After the first weekend we implemented an over 21 check in. They had their PARENTS check them in!! I will never understand some people.

So on to the Challenge! Keely posted a challenge that she got from two other wonderful bloggers: Jen and Stiletto Mom challenged all of us to post our pictures from prom because that way they wouldn't feel alone.

Now I thought this would be a relatively easy post, put up a few images add a few words and the end. Here's where the drama is, when we moved I decided to keep most of my things in storage because I would be moving again to TN with Kensei. This seemed like a sound plan at the time. sadly this included my prom pictures. Not that there were all that many to begin with. I disliked being in photographs in high school. So I have begged my Dad relentlessly to find a few digital copies of some and send them to me, hopefully he can so in case he can't I will post a few pictures until then.

I went to three proms, sophomore, Jr and Sr. My Sophomore year I went to help and ended up dancing most of the night with my best friend Mark. He was there with one of his girlfriends a friend of mine named Scarlett, she was having a melt down and asked me to pretend to be his date while she did my job. I don't think I have a picture of this prom so I will show you a version of the dress. My mother and I went to a consignment shop called Daff-A-Deals they are no longer in business but I found two of my three dresses there.

The first one was a black version of the Audrey Hepburn dress from My Fair Lady. I saw it and decided that even if it didn't fit i wouldn't eat until it did. Luckily for me it was a perfect fit. For those of you who have never seen the movie ( you should) It was a simple dress but there was a mesh over slip completely covered with sparkling jet beads. I wish I still had this one but my mother took it to be dry cleaned after the prom and I never saw it again.

This is for those of you who don't want to watch the movie, this was my dress only it was black and sleeveless.

Then came Jr. Prom. I went with some friends, and had fun, I guess I had a wonderful dress this time and actually have pictures of it on hand so I can show you. My mother and i fought after this one because my wonderful dress (bought at daff-a-deals for 40 dollars) had been ripped by the beaded purse a friend gave me.

This was my dress. I loved the millions of layers and was amazed we got it so cheap. I didn't have big hair, in fact every prom I went to I had an up do of some sort.

The making faces at the camera moment and the obligatory please get this over with look.

And a Smile.

After this I had Sr. Prom. I went as a friend's chaperon, I didn't do a very good job at it though. I was supposed to go with Kensei, had filled out the "Please please please let my boyfriend come" form and begged the appropriate authority figures, unfortunately Kensei couldn't make it. He didn't tell me until after I had bought his ticket either.

I cannot find any pictures of this as of yet, but I will look even harder when I get off work tonight. I once again had a killer dress this one was bought at Riches and was not black but a Deep Red. I loved it, but I wanted a different one. The dress I wanted I cannot find online anymore but it was basically the more sparkly version of my red dress with a ruffle down the side. Wish me luck finding the pictures!

Kensei still owes me one Formal dress up night because being the wonderful Boyfriend that he was in HS he managed to get into three car accidents, and avoid both Jr, Sr prom and Graduation. (Shows you how much he was determined NOT to come back to SC)

Writer's Workshop: Feelings

Mama Kat's prompts this week kind of caught me by surprise but I knew when I read this one that it was what I would do:

1.) Define anger using pictures you've taken.

Now because one of my majors is Photography, this was hard for me, also because I lost most of my favorite images when my computer burst into flames but that was another story. So on to the prompt.

Goodness, this was an especially difficult one fore me. Goodness in my mind is not easily defined so I have two images for that one.

This is a church in Charleston, I have taken so many pictures of this particular church over the years to me the deep blue and the steeple are a symbol of the goodness that comes from the world around you. This is always going to be there as a reminder that there is good in the world, and good people who believe.

This was taken at a pier in Charleston as well. the good in nature where everything comes from. The beauty and purity that comes in nature is also only found in babies and not for long either.

Then there was Joy.

Joy to me is an emotion that one can see, so the picture I took was from M's Wedding

This was taken after the wedding took place. M decided that she didn't get enough pictures of the actually ceremony so so ordered everyone back up so that she could stage the pictures, then freaked because people brought drinks, and we had to do it all over again.
this is joy for me, everyone was laughing and grinning and having fun.

Sorrow and Anger are next these are linked to me, When you have sorrow, you tend to get angry, or at least I do, and when I am angry then it is followed by sorrow. So These are all connected to me

M was very sad one day and that's where this came from

This is another church in Charleston, I think it represents anger and sorrow because it is one of the very few there that they have let become overgrown and stopped caring for it, There is graffiti on the lower walls and the graveyard has been vandalized and it makes me both angry and sad that people would treat others in this way.

This is a Jail in Charleston. It is also very neglected and graffiti all over it. But It is also a sad site because it could have been a powerful piece of architecture.

This is what happened to my car.
It is also what I mean by the two emotions are linked in my mind. Tori, (My Car) was taken from me because of a mistake and broken. I lost my car, and my independence. I was very angry but also couldn't stop crying because of the sorrow I felt as well.

And to end on a lighter note: I did not take this but I reminds me of the squirrel from Ice Age, anyways here is a laugh for you.

Writer's Workshop and randomness

Hello all! First things first I just wanted to say I AM Super amazingly ecstatically happy right now. I have been worring about my math grade all semester and I somehow managed to get an A. I don't know if it was because he decided to give everyone an A (Because every person I've asked so far has one) Or maybe I am just smarter than I look, but that is my happy for this week.

Now on to Mama Kat's wonderful writing prompt.

Do I want a baby?

Wow, this question opens up a can o' worms for sure. I would like nothing more than to have a child, in fact when my friends began to have them I considered knocking a few of the off because I would get the kids if something happened. (Just kidding) But I really do want a baby more than almost anything.

This topic is one of the few that Kensei and I actually will full out argue about. Kensei is very planning and doesn't want a kid, or to get married or finish his school until we can "Afford" it. While I am in debt up to my ears with student loans, still accumulating, would get married tomorrow if he asked and want to have babies as soon as possible.

One of the reasons I am so desperate to at least try is because of PCOS, I was diagnosed with it when I was sixteen. My OBGYN at the time informed me that there was nothing they could do, and that I basicly had until I was 25 to have my kids or it would be almost impossible. For a sixteen year old who always wanted to be a mom that was pretty much the worst thing they could have told me. Since then I have learned that there was a medication they could have put me on that would have slowed the progression down a little, and I am now on it, but I have a very loud biological clock ticking.

I hope to soon have at least the beginning of a family and am also completly for adoption, but that is where Kensei's we need the money first outlook will really come in.

This post is going to be shorter than normal just because I am beginng to make myself sad.

Growing Up and Moving On

Well it is official, I am carless. I still have my job and classes are almost done for the semester, I just have one more exam. I am slightly depressed though because my car is gone,

So I figured that I would go ahead and think of all the positive things that will happen because I do not have my car

1. I will be able to save the money for the hot pink highlights

2. I will be able to work on the Master Cleanse because I won't be able to order out food.

3. I don't have classes anymore so less gas.

4. My father's AC rocks

5. I can save enough to get my own car the way I want instead of a hand me down.
