I am NOT an artist

So imagine you're walking in PARIS and you see this:

Romantic EH?
There will be 110 colorful cows on display in Paris as part of an art exibit. But you better hurry- you can only see it till June 16th. (LINK)

Apparently I'm not getting the symbolism or something here. Who wants a bunch of weird colorful cows? Yea, maybe one of you could explain why this is going on b/c I'll admit that I'm not into modern art too much.

Either way, I think it's pretty darn funny that Paris, one of the romance capitals of the world, is now also home to 110 fiberglass cows.


what do you think about it??

A Funny song about the Westminster Mall

So the Vandals wrote this song about a girl who works at Hot Dog On A Stick at the Westminster Mall in CA.
I don't' know if you've seen their uniforms but they are unkown to be the worlds WORST.. see: ~leahland/hdoas.html

Now remember- they are made out of PURE 100% Polyester.. yeeaaa that's nice - : P


Lyrics to Cafe 405

Watching her at the mall she don't know me at all
Hope no employee over hears
Think I'm in love with you Red, Yellow, White & Blue
Seems I've been watching her for years,
It brings a smile to my face as she hops with style and grace
Way beyond 9 to 5,
she's keeping hope alive -
Cafe 405
I'd always keep her warm in that silly uniform
Tell her every day that she's the best
Just wanna be with her, I'd never cheat on her
With someone at Panda Express
And nothing else makes me tick
like when she's on that Pogo Stick
I wish I wasn't afraid,
she's making lemonade
It brings a smile to my face as she hops with style and grace
One day our love will arrive, so glad to be alive

Roller Coasters are FUN

I like roller coasters.. but today, my head feels like I'm on a roller coaster but I'm sitting still


I think this roller coaster is the one in Virgina. It's called the Lochness Monster at Bush Gardens. When I was a kid I used to REFUSE to get off the ride till they let me ride it again.. haha- what a little bratty thing to do eh? Well it worked! : P

but now, I definately want off the roller coaster that is my head..

Talk to you all later : ) <--- still smiling of course! b/c I had a fun weekend

Saturday, April 22, 2006

I wanna see


I think it came out yesterday. Looks absolutely hilarious- but then again I have a tendency to love Mandy movies. And the fact that it's making fun of American Idol makes me tickled pink : ) Hope I get the chance to see it but it is 7 days before the move and counting

Hmm perhaps I should PACK something.. we'll see

I'm off for the day. See you guys on Monday!

Have a nice weekend!!

I think I’ll park HERE

I wonder if CA really does have America’s worst drivers. Well in this case it wasn’t technically driving.
Friday- Breakfast day.
At our offices about 85% of the departments have a breakfast potluck. Of course, accounting doesn’t do anything like that. There are only 6 of us and I can guarantee about 3 or 4 out of the 6 won’t want to participate. Because of this Donna and I decide that we need BAGELS. Gotta LOVE the jalapeño and cheese ones :) - they aren’t common though but Donna knows a place that has good ones. index.php/2005/06/

We go to the bagel shop. It’s in a shopping center with a Starbucks and there are only about 10 spots to park in. Not NEARLY enough. We try to go in to see (if by some act of God) we are lucky enough to get some parking there.
We can’t even get in the lot. And here is why. A woman driving a Lexus SUV decided that the best place for her to park was the entrance of the parking lot. showarticle/AID/138982

It’s as if the woman thought “oh there’s no parking in the lot, I’ll just park HERE- in the middle of the driveway.” GENIUS
Since she’s doing that I felt it was appropriate to wail on my horn. Which I did, eventually we find a way to drive around her. And when we do, this woman (who is CLEARLY 1) breaking the law 2) the most self centered person in CA) gives ME a look as if wailing on my horn was just sooo rude. (okay I'll admit it wasn't nice but I didn't pay for that horn to not use it! haha)
What a crazy lady
“Look at me, I have a luxury SUV. I can do whatever I want. Traffic laws don’t apply to me. Hoo hum. Doo dooo deee- La La Lah. WHAT- someone’s honking? At ME? Well that’s just rude.”
Either way, I’m sitting and enjoying a DELISH bagel and laughing. : )

It's time to enjoy your WEEKEND! : )

Hello Kitty Style !

It's looking like it won't be a very sunny weekend here in So. Cal but hey, at least it's the weekend! YAY

Just GO already!

Once again the Puppy makes headlines!

Yesterday I’m walking the dog. All I’m thinking while we’re walking is ‘come on dog do your business already. I’m tired!’ (it was 10:40 at night).
Our dog isn’t well trained when it comes to being on a leash and she stops to sniff EVERYTHING. With the frequent stops it takes the cute little thing about 20-30 mins to get her business done and I was just not in the mood for a LONG walk.
Well the dog has stopped and I kept on going and I turned to her and said
“Hurry up POOPY!”
Now the people around me stop and give me a look as if I just screamed out a horrible profanity (Poop is a funny word not a bad one right? Well maybe not. haha). hankweb/hankfame.html

It was quite embarrassing but at least the dog starting moving again.
So what have I learned from yelling poopy loudly in a public place?

1) The word Puppy and Poopy are extremely similar and when you’re waiting for a dog to poop you’re likely to say the latter
2) The dog will respond to the name Poopy and that opens a whole new fun door to my life

Perhaps my lessons will some how enrich your life the same way they have mine : )

To start the day off right!

Anchor Man.

A great movie. ?page=film&id=1345

Ron Burgundy: Let's go to Brian Fantana who's live on the scene with a Channel 4 News exclusive. Brian?

Brian Fantana: Panda Watch! The mood is tense; I have been on some serious, serious reports but nothing quite like this. I uh... Ching... King is inside right now. I tried to get an interview with him, but they said no, you can't do that he's a live bear, he will literally rip your face off.

[to the Panda]
Brian Fantana: Hey, you're making me look stupid! Get out of here, Panda Jerk!

: ) more later!

Good Dog

About a month ago my roomie got a new dog. She made it her mission to save this thing. Here's what happened. Her friend got it for his girlfriend who wasn't allowed to have it. My roomie, of course, couldn't stand to see the dog go to the pound. So she offered to take it. Well now we have a dog.
Who wants a doggie to live like this? pet/rosewood-dog-cages.htm

Don't ask me what kind it is b/c I could NEVER tell you. Basically is looks like a black lab puppy (and she's full grown). My whole life I've had cats. I'm a cat person. And here is why:
This is the puppy herself!!

I came home 3 days ago, put my purse on the couch then got myself a snack. The dog was going crraazzyy so I took her out for a run (to get some of that energy out of her). After the run I was all sweaty and gross. I took a shower (a GREAT one, not anything like yesterdays song). Afterwards I change into Pj's and start getting ready for bed. Then I notice my purse is now on the floor- weird


I think - "oh no, what did the dog do?"
I rummage threw the purse and can't find that anything is missing (haven't seen much of the dog around either).. then I take step. Ew what is that hard wet plastic thing I just stepped on?
I'll tell you what it was- a COMPLETELYDEVOUREDD lip gloss. My brand new red fruit flavored lip gloss. The dog ate the ENTIRE thing- including most of the packaging. Now I'm searching for her so I can show her what a bad dog she's been. But when I find her all I can do is laugh b/c she has a red tint on her teeth and lips! Hahaha
So this isn't the lip gloss but it's the same packaging index.php?cPath=230_308

Freakin DOG- making me laugh when I'm pissed. That's it- no more lip gloss for her!

Tuesday is now officially Songs that make you Giggle day! (so if you know any songs with funny lyrics send em to me and I'll post them some tuesday soon!!) getridofbodyodor.htm

I LOVE showers- like no other human I've ever met. If I could, I would live in a shower. They are just relaxing and great. But since I love my showers so much I have a way that I like the water to fall on me, a temperature that is just right and even the best type of bathroom to shower in. So it's a bit weird but I said I was kooky and it's funny!
Here's a song by Goldfinger that I can totally relate to and it'll make you smile at the same time : )

"My Girlfriend's Shower Sucks"


The temperature changes
It chills me to the bone
It makes me wish that I was cleaning myself at home
It makes me grumpy and sometimes I lose hope
The water's hard, so I cannever rinse the soap
and it's got no pressure
The water dribbles down on me
and it's got no pressure
It's like the shower's going pee

SpongeBob SquarePants

Here is a story that was generously donated by my co-worker "Donna"

I don’t know if anyone has ever seen one of them but they look pretty cool. It's a Sponge Bob Squarepants TP holder. It's easy application too- peel off the backing and it just STICKS to the wall. You don't even need tools. And being a girl who isn't so good with the use of tools, that makes me happy.

Well- Donna got one of these for her bathroom. She lovingly stuck it to her wall. The same night she heard a loud clunking noise (so loud that it awoke her from a sound sleep). But thinking that it was nothing, she went back to sleep.

When she awoke in the morning, she went to the restroom to get ready and get her cell phone (she charges it there). Now to her surprise the door would NOT open. She tried with all her might. Threw her shoulder into the door with a running start, yet it refused to budge. Then it dawns on Donna that the reason the door won't budge is b/c of that sponge bob tp holder! It must be sticky side down. She grabs a spatula, sneaks it under the door and lifts up the tp holder. It works! But for only 3 seconds b4 she drops it and the door closes even further than it was. The spatula can't fit under the door anymore.

Donna is starting to panic. She NEEDS to get into her bathroom so she can get ready to go to work. Since her cell phone is stuck in the bathroom she is forced to use the internet to contact friends, loved ones, and random people from high school for help. And just her luck, no one can help.
Donna has a BRILIANT idea. It's sticky side down right?? Well, if she gets some water on it, it'll probably UN-stick. TA-DA

Donna grabs a straw and a glass of water and starts the tedious task of trying to get the water under the crack of the door. She tries to open the door again, unsuccessfully. Back to trying to get water under the door with a straw.

As she's laying there doing her best at a nearly impossible task, she's feeling quite ready to quit, and she begins to feel a little rumble. Donna realizes that there's an EARTHQUAKE happening. delta/concept04.htm

If matters weren't bad enough already, this is JUST what she needed. After a few mins everything settles down and she thinks 'that's it! I'm going full force at this door and giving it one last shot before I just call it quits!'

Donna steps about 20 feet back, gets into a linebacker position and RUNS full steam to knock that damned door down! All of a sudden BAM- SMACK. Donna is in her bathroom, hands on the counter, trying not to fall on her face. Apparently the water idea worked- it just takes a few minutes and an earthquake. Her day can now begin.

What a story and it's completely true.
Laugh it up b/c it didn't happen to you! : )

Swamp Meet

I LOVE swamp meets, flea markets, whatever you call them.. They always have the weirdest stuff and everything is so cheap! It's fantastic

Orange county has a really decent free admission swamp meet on Saturdays and Sundays at a local community college. I'm pretty much a regular there (I like to go once a month). Yes, this place has a lot of shady characters but you kind of look beyond all that b/c of the great deals. I park my car in a kind of "secret" lot away from everyone else b/c there's always guaranteed parking there. Today I sparked there as per usual.

I shopped for about 2 hours- had a GREAT time too.. Got lots of stuff- DVD's, fruit, socks (haha yea who buys socks there? I do). Upon returning to my car, I notice something looks different.. But I can't tell what so I figure I'm just being my crazy self and it's in my head. I get in, start to drive but I SWEAR that something is going on with my car.. And so it dawned on me. I no longer had any windshield wipers! So much for my "secret" parking spot.

I mean WHO steals windshield wipers?? Especially in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I'll tell you who- the crazy windshield wiper stealers of the golden west swamp meet! That's WHO.. I'm releasing a picture of what the criminal(s) may look like..

If you have any details of where this person may be located, please notify me immediately and I will be able to drive in the rain again.


you could just laugh b/c someone STOLE WINDSHIELD WIPERS in So. CAL

I use them about 4 times a year- have fun

Hope everyone has a great- rain free- Saturday! And if it rains, I hope there's one of these :
Don't forget to smile today : )

We are smat-- I mean SMART

Two words

The story to follow : )

It's Friday- everyone wants to slack off on a Friday. It's a world-wide known fact. If you say otherwise, your boss is probably standing next to you when you're saying it.

Everyone in the office here today is in full Friday spirit.
Several of us met up in the break room and were sharing eachother's funny stories. One of my co-workers complains about how long it's taking for his english muffin to heat up. I walk over and comment "hey GENIUS, you need turn it to HIGH- you barely have any heat coming out- it's just luke warm"
another five mins go by and STILL his muffin was cold, cheese still unmelted.

Doesn't it kind of make you sad- sitting there, unheated?

Me, Donna ('PEN-is' girl from yesterday) and english muffin guy are all standing there wondering what in the hell is taking so long. We look, it's plugged into the power strip- it SHOULD work. Well obviously the toaster oven is broken right? I mean it's made by black & decker. Don't they make tools? I bet it's all just a ploy to get you to buy their tools to fix their crappy toaster oven.
FINE- the oven isn't working- just use the toaster.
the toaster isn't working either... now we're all thinking the same thing- What is really going on here?

well, I'll tell you what's going on. The power-strip, yea, it's not turned on. But I am PROUD to say, after 20 minutes, I am the one that figured it all out. Thank you!
You may now heat your english muffins in the breakroom.

I would now like to present my co-workers, and myself, with the following words of wisdom:

In case you can't read the small print-"It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others" oh how true it is.

but hey- at least it's entertaining

Preview for the day !!

It's Good. It's Holy. It's Hello Kitty GOOD FRIDAY!

Oh there's more.

But you'll have to wait

Can you handle it???!!!

hehehe : )

OC Thursdays

I doubt there's many people who don't know Fox's hit show- The OC.
I'm from there and I'll admit, up until recently I was a fan. Yes Yes I know. It's an incredibly materialistic terrible show but that's what makes it so freakin GREAT. I like how they play the cheese-factor. Over the top and loving it!
And I will also admit that if it wasn't for Seth and Summer I would have never watched the show. Come ooon just look at them!!

And now I have to say that I am a recovering OC fan.
After watching for 2 and a half seasons I fear that this show has just gone too far. I can no longer watch it. There is too much Marissa and Ryan. Seth used to be have a much better script. This entire season, I've been unimpressed, disenchanted and just turned off by the whole plot twists. Making Seth smoke weed? DUMB.. then not getting into college because of it? DUMBER.. and the DUMBEST- breaking up Ryan and Marissa AGAIN. boo

I am now officially announcing that I, Teddy, am no longer an obsessed OC fan.

PHEW now that's off my chest I can tell you a great story from my coworker today. It's about PENS.

I'll give you a second to try and let you come up with a story about a pen that is funny so I don't have to write this one.

go on- give it some thought

anything yet??

yea I thought not
Okay If I MUST tell you a funny story about a pen, I will. But only b/c I like you so much- Here we go:
My coworker (we'll call her Donna) had to deliver some papers to a boss (we'll call him George) today. Unfortunately George was not at his desk when Donna stopped by. So Donna did what most people would do, she left the papers on his desk and proceeded to write George a note. While Donna was writing the note she noticed that the pen was running out of ink. Donna thought she'd let George know that he needed a new pen. So at the bottom of her note she wrote: P.S. Your pen is dying.
Before she left the note she re-read it for errors. At this point Donna noticed something terribly odd about the note. While she was writing the 'PS' section she wasn't paying attention. Now that she was looking it over the 'PS' said something ENTIRELY different than what she had intended to say. It read:

PS- Your PENIS dying.

in a panic she tried crossing out what she had wrote but it was too late. The pen was DEAD.


come on I thought that was funny
now crack a smile : )

have a nice day!

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

You know it's Wednesday when...

Wednesday- halfway through the week but still a while 2 days to go. I guess it's kind of how you look at it. On one hand there's the extreme JOY of being half-done with the work week then on the other there's the crappy-ness (yes, it is a word- i just wrote it didn't I?) of thursday and friday hahha

Wow that first bit goes extremely well with this
AAANNND we're over it haha- YAY for Wednesday!!

Moving on.

I know I usually gush about how great itunes is and yadda yadda yadda but today is my day to say NO to the itunes madness!

Now let me explain why. As we're all aware my ipod recently broke as well as my computer. Lucky for me my roomate has itunes on her computer. And her itunes has about 60% of the music I had on my computer. So here was my master plan.

Organize/categorize/sort her music into burnable sized files. Doing this took about 5 hours. And thus I began to burn. I've only burned 2 cds out of the 16 or so I plan on burning.

Well I put them in my NEW car (scion xA!!! ) b/c it plays Mp3 cds but NO it doesn't work!!! Itunes makes Mp4's!! Darn them to HECK!- grrrr.

So I sat on a computer for FIVE ours and I SITLL don't have music to listen to in my car. BOO

Which brings me to this:

If anyone knows how to turn Mp4's into Mp3's I will GIVE you this smiling monkey. Just post a comment telling me how to do it and I will think you are a computer GOD.
(warning no monkey will actually be given)



If anyone has any ideas on blogs for me to do, I'll probably do them. I love telling crazy stories, just give me a subject you wanna hear about and I'll go wild and pictures and whatnot. It'll be fun- I promise : )

ok see you tomorrow!

Bowl of Oranges

This is what a broken ipod does!

This song will NOT get out of my head. I love it but since the ipod is broken I can't hear it. Yeaa everyone should feel SO sorry for me b/c the ipod is broke hahaha. Ok as a reward for reading my dumb jokes, read this song and it'll make you smile. Too bad my Ipod wouldn't smiilleee!! but seriously- read the song haha

The rain, it started tapping on the window near my bed.
There was a loophole in my dreaming, so I got out of it and to my surprise my eyes were wide and already open.
Just my nightstand and my dresser where those nightmares had just been.
So I dressed myself and left then, out into the gray streets.
But everything seemed different and completely new to me-The sky, the trees, houses, buildings, even my own body.
And each person I encountered, I couldn't wait to meet.
I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health.
I said " there is nothing I can do for you that you can't do for yourself."
He said "Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help."
So I sat with him a while and then I asked him how he felt.
He said, "I think I'm cured. No, in fact, I'm sure.Thank you Stranger, for your therapeutic smile."
So that is how I learned the lesson that everyone is alone.
And your eyes must do some raining if you are ever going to grow.
But when crying don't help and you can't compose yourself.
It is best to compose a poem, an honest verse of longing or simple song of hope.
That is why I'm singing...Baby don't worry. Cause now I got your back.
And every time you feel like crying, I'm gonna try and make you laugh.
And if I can't, if it just hurts too bad, then we will wait for it to pass and I will keep you company through those days so long and black.
And we'll keep working on the problem we know we'll never solve.
Of Love's uneven remainders, our lives are fractions of a whole.
But if the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a wall.
Then I think we would see the beauty.
Then we would stand staring in awe at our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges, like a story told by the fault lines and the soil.

See it makes you smile : ) Okay I'll write more later.. just wanted to share a nice song with you

This weekend

OH MAN- what an exhausting weekend!
Of course I went to see the boyfriend in San Diego.
Let's see, I got there Friday night and I was already tired from the 2 hour drive.
The boy decided to throw a party that night and while I like his friends, boy was I tired.. By the time we got to bed I had been up 20+ hours and I was about 20 mins away from attacking Richard out f pure tiredness

On Sat I went out to breakfast with cara and some other folks
Cara writes a blog that's cute...

Here is a picture of her cute new puppy! Her name is emily and apparently she doesn't mind having bows in her hair at all : )

I know it's a bit blurry but the cuteness still comes thru.
Other than that I sat around a lot waiting for Richard to get some homework done
However, in my boredom i took a pic of Mr.Starburst
Everyone- Meet Mr Starburst

Isn't he CUUTTTEE?? I got him for richard b/c I really want a kitty and so does richard. We're moving into our new place in about a month now and it allows kitties!! YAY. so you know we'll be getting one ASAP : )
Saturday night we headed over to Music trader and watched The SESS (a local SD band) play for free.. It was a dancing good time- although, again, I was tired.. Hmm maybe I'm getting old b/c I've been too tired lately. EEKK nooo- I'm only 23... there's no way that's old..

Sunday wasn't the best of days at all.. Richard and I were at eachothers throats for a loonng time. Not fun. But the cool things that happened were
1) I got to see cara again : )
2) cara gave me a ffffrrreee microwave b/c our place doesn't come with one.
3) I got to eat Mama Testa's!!

This is the best mexican food place in ALL of San Diego.. and I am not exaggerating at all. I mean the salsa is to DIE for! if you live within a 50 mile radius I suggest you go.
I Love the Gauca Tacos. mmMmmmmMMmm

ooh and I also got to watch Family Guy last night. That's a wonderfully hilarious show.

That's about it for this weekend.

Friday, April 07, 2006

And she's back!

It's FRIDAY.. I just have to put up the Hello Kitty pic ; )
Apparently you can print this pic out an color it! I think I might do that. Don't deny that coloring is fun- b/c I'm 23 and I still LOVE it.
Ok- moving on
This past month or so has been a dosey for me

I've had just about everything I've ever owned break on me. Here's my impressive list:
my car
my computer
my ipod
my cellphone

It was quite stressfull b/c on top of it all, I've been looking for a new place to live. Pheewww wweee. That was a mouthful eh? Well since all that's been going on, there's a lot of new things in my life that I'm loving.
Starting with my NEW CAR : )
It's a Scion xA

It's awesome.. I think i got a great deal. It was 15000 out the door- and it was 15000 BEFORE I took 500 off for being a recent college grad and another 600 or so for my trade in. woohoo
It came fully loaded with: Air conditioning, Pioneer sound system, a hook up for my ipod, power everything, AND it gets 31 MPG streets and 38 MPG highway (that's pretty much the best you can get instead of getting a hybrid!)
I'm so excited. The car is completely me. It's little and efficient : )

My next new toy is my new cell phone!

Yep that's right, I got a razor : ). It was only 50 bucks after I get the $50 rebate. I'm pretty excited about that still

Well those are my two new toys. I'm pretty happy about them. One big problem remains tho. My computer!
I don't know what to do. Here's what happened. I was walking with it in my hands and the dog tripped me and I dropped it. Now it doesn't really turn on. It starts to power up but then it turns itself off in like 5 seconds.. Im thinking a may have knocked something loose. Does anyone know where I could go to get it fixed cheap?? I'd LOVE the help.
