To the same girl with redneck neighbors from yesterday:
Tuesday, March 16, 2010
A real status from a real person who I am 'friends' with on Facebook:"Ok well let's see stayed awake all night long because of gun shoots, let's see can you guess which one DRIVE BY or REDNECKS with guns.
Well you if guessed REDNECKS with guns your RIGHT. We have been haveing coytoes kill goats and other live stock we also heard that there is a couger killing live stock in Keithville we...ll that's less than 5 miles from my house, I also read online that a couger travels up to 20 miles a night looking for a kill....... All I can say is my guns are loaded if it comes my way. Guess like the song you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl! Lol lol lol ha ha ha ha! You just have to love a country girl!"
I don't even know what to say here other than I added the photo for effect...

I don't know if I mentioned before that one of my New Year's Resolutions was to re-do (meaning paint and rearrange) my bedroom, but that was the plan. So, back during my two week hiatus where I fell into a deep depression of boredom, I bought all the stuff to get started. I got paint, brushes, trays, drop cloths and all that horsecrap in order to prepare to paint. And then it ended up on my dining room table for two months...
Until Friday night.
John and I ripped down some God-awful border and began the task of 'Home Improving' as some call it. Saturday we primed and painted - well John did most of the hard part, while I did things like tape, refill the paint tray and trim. Here is a preview of the result:
Don't judge the bad photo - it was taken with Halle (no offense Halle).
Be honest with me, is it too dark? Also, I bet you can take a wild guess at who was so careless as to paint parts of the ceiling green unintentionally (Hint: It wasn't me). Oh well, that will just have to be touched up at a later date, or covered with some crown molding. During the process of moving the furniture back to their destinations from the center of the room, my foot board was shattered and thus, is now pieces of it are leaning all over my room, along with the new bed frame that I purchased last night. So, indeed, this is still a work in progress and will have to be reconstrued and put about this weekend after John leaves to go on his cruise with the Belushi's.
More updates on this coming soon... stay tuned.

I kid you not, if I ever get knocked up (Please God, no!) and birth a daughter, then someone tries to gift me with a garter with a bird's nest size worth of grosgrain ribbon atop of it, I SWEAR upon all that is Holy and righteous that I will immediately throw it away after spitting upon it. Nothing, I repeat NOTHING is more God-awful than grapefruit sized headgear for infants who cannot defend themselves! Except maybe jeggins. For those of you who think it is 'cute', just go ahead and accept that you have deplorable taste. (Steps off soapbox).

Well, since I gave up everything that is considered Holy and Righteous (see post below) for Lent, I've pretty much eaten nothing but lettuce and salmon for the past two weeks. (Well, except that time that I went to Joey and Megan's Fiesta Wedding Shower and of course it was Build Your Own Burrito day and I ate one and a half. Oops.. I felt really bad about it and purged when I got home. Ok not really, but I did feel bad... convicted would be the proper term/feeling.) Anyway, since I've only eaten sprigs of grass, I feel like I've lost a pound or two. Feel free to compliment me on such the next time you see me.
Anyway. Life has been busy lately. I just found out that I will be coordinating two films coming up. One starting now and the other starting at the end of the month so if you wanted to get any face time in with me before September, now's the time to start booking my free time with fun activities.
Since I won't be doing anything other than being holed up in this office 'til fall, I've decided to arrange a goal if you will, to look forward to. I've decided to take this one...:
...on a trip to NYC! I asked her where in the world does she want to go on a trip. She answered NYC (even though we've already been there AND even though I STRONGLY URGED HER to choose Paris, she wanted New York. She says that Paris would be too expensive b/c that is where the original Louis Vuitton store is and she knows she'd spend a fortune in there. I say, you live once and you're going to be too old and senile by the time we can 'afford' to go to Paris, but whatever...off soapbox (also she wants John to take me there on our honeymoon. Ha! WE AREN'T EVEN ENGAGED!!!)), so off we go to NYC! (I know, I'm the best daughter ever...) So, I've contacted my travel agent and planning is in the works. I've always wanted to do something special for Sue and I feel like this will be a nice way of rewarding her for being a great mom (also, to get her out of the house before her Alzheimer's/dimensia settles in for good).
