my roommate, corinne, came home this weekend with a trike.

its pretty legit. check out her latest blog post.

so now i want one.
its totally "anastasia got the coolest beanie baby, its not fair i want it syndrome"
side note... my friends were really into beanie babies. we all swore they would be worth lots of money some day. and we memorized some of the poems and birthdays.

so now i am going to start looking for a trike. im telling you, its going to be the next hot thing.
and you read it here first.

and here she is in the dryer.

this is part of the reason i haven't done laundry in a few weeks.

there are somethings i know i could really get into.

so i stay away.
kinda like there are lots of tv shows that i know i could get addicted to.
so i don't watch them.

online shopping is one of my pastimes.
i really don't buy that much stuff. so i guess its more of online window shopping.
i just add lots of purses and bags and accessories and clothes to my shopping bag and i never buy the stuff. i have also been really into looking at makeup online lately. there are some great sites out there with super good deals. but of course i don't know what the products are actually like because i never buy anything.

but tonight i bid on a bag on ebay. and i won it for $2.50 plus $4 for shipping and handling.
so im excited to get that in the mail.

it was a good weekend. with a slight period of emo today.
field trip, disneyland twice, oak glen, brother's show, good food, great friends.
now its back to school

waxing your brows could be spiritual.

i have a weird habit.
sometimes when i am in funny situations i think, "man, this would make a great illustration in a sermon!"

today i got my eyebrows waxed. (after my pedi with jillian).

so im laying down on the bed thing. and first the lady starts combing my brows and trimming them with a pair of scissors. i felt a little nervous because i had no idea what she was doing.
next its time for the wax. she lays a strip of it along the top of my face. i can feel the hot wax, but i have no way of knowing where she had put the wax. i was nervous i would be left with nothing and have to draw in some brows the next day.
after she had finished with the wax she started with the scissors. "cretainly there couldn't be anymore left to cut? could there be?"
oh but she wasn't done yet- now it was time for the tweesers!
im like laying there trying to stay calm. thinking i must look bald at this point.
then she stops. starts rubbing lotion on my face and massages my head.

she finishes up, i finally get to look in the mirror, and i actually have two nice looking eyebrows left!

God knows exactly what we need. it might feel funny at times. it might even hurt sometimes. sometimes what we think we need or the ways we think we would do something could be totally wrong.I wanted the lady to stop cutting my hair as soon as she started. but sometimes the road of life can get bumpy (hairy?) and if you just stick with it God will carry you through. because only HE knows what you need. and HIS plan is best. and even if you think that everyting is totally wrong, you have to trust the great brow waxer, or the Father.

so can i be a pastor now?

a pair of pears.

Im so over drawing this pear. Its been a long day. I feel especially emo. And i just want to lay down. And im hungry. And people keep letting me down. I dont know why i ever put my faith in people. All earthly things will ever do is leave me feeling empty. And im over the emptyness.

happy one year anniversary!

to me and blogger!

october 15, 2007 i posted my first blog and there was no looking back.

i decided i would celebrate by sharing some of my google analytic statistics with yall.
this is a screen shot of all the countries that have visited my blog, i think its pretty cool.
33.65% of the visits to my blog came from apple computers.
42 people came across my blog searching for rice crispy treats cereal
my most viewed blog was the one about my trip to the tattoo expo

well im going to take this time to say thank you. to blogger, for sticking with me trough the hard times and the good times. there were days , even weeks when i neglected you. but then whenever i came back to you there you were with open arms.

and thank you to my blogging friends!

nor cal weekend.

friday morning, 4am we left.
our first stop was at julia's uncle's vineyard.

we labeled some bottles for him and then we were back on the rode.
we got to redding and went tout to red robin for heather's 21st birthday.
heather is a generous person and proved this point by sharing her free sunday with julia.
the next day we slept in. then we went to target. i walked away with a pack of gum, and im pretty sure that deserves an award. its so hard to resist.
when we got back to the simpson campus we were attacked by geese. ok not really, but we did go watch a soccer game.
for dinner we went out for sushi. and jackie, who hates sishi, had rice.after sushi we got to go over to trav and annette's house. we had brownies, and friendship and played games. and i didnt take any pictures. :[ but payton did, so maybe someday we will make guest appearances on their blogs.
there are alot of riverside people currently residing in redding. melissa, who is heather's ra (they affectionately call her boss), elizabeth(fern), heather's suitemate. and the lances.
sunday we went to the sundial bridge and took abbout 200 photos.

we also took a million jumping pictures. julia is a retired cheerleader, and i am channeling my inner ninja.
we got to make a stop at my cousin greg's house where i met my new cousin (once removed? seccond cousin?) kingston. my brother chun was also in nor cal, so that was cool and random. and then my computer ran out of space, so there are no more pictures to show.

if anyone has an external hardrive laying around i could use one.
