Listening To: Too Much by NU
So I realized the blog I wrote last night was kind of pointless and I honestly felt bad about putting it out there. Why? Well it was just a very quick type up because I wasn’t really feeling that awesome and just felt like I NEEDED to post something so people didn’t think I gave up on my blog. But if you follow me on twitter I think my tweets have been explaining why I didn’t feel that awesome. I’ve been dealing with one of those great change of the seasons colds. =_= Which means I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping. I guess the good thing is the fact that I think I’m finally nearing the end of it. I still have a cough and I can still feel a little in my chest, but aside from that I’m good.
As the pictures explained in the last post my niece was here on the 18th. It was so warm – but windy – so we went to the small local park I live near. There really isn’t much there to play on – especially for the little kids. But they have slides. haha. The first slide was one of those small yellow plastic slides. Well I went up onto the wooden thing it’s hooked to but I didn’t slide down with her. My mom was at the bottom of the slide and well…had to grab her by the arm because she went flying down the slide and there was a small mud puddle at the bottom, and well I just slide down too…I flew down it too. 0_0 I don’t remember slides being that fast when I was little.
Then she seen the large metal slide. I followed her up and this time I went down with her between my legs. The bummer part was the fact that kids had climbed up the slide with mud on their feet so we only got – maybe – half way down before we just stopped because of the mud. But I was kind of happy for that because there was mud at the bottom. She went found the last slide and had to go down it three times.
The trip to the park ended with some swinging.
After that we went to the small ice cream place that’s just up the road from where I live. I got ice cream even though I know it’s horrible for me. Since it was hot the ice cream was just melting so fast and the wind wasn’t helping – the ice cream really wasn’t melting THAT fast, it was just the fact that went it did start to melt the wind was blowing the little bits of melted ice cream every where.
Friday (the 19th) I had started to feel a little yucky, my nose was starting to become runny. I just figured it was because of the wind the day before. My niece had stayed the night so she went to the store with us in the morning. One of the stores was having some random things marked down to like $1 – getting rid of the old I guess. So she got herself a little brown & purple purse with a peace sign on it. They even had small socks – like 3 pairs for around $3. I ended up getting a strapless bra for $1! Okay I honestly don’t know when I will use a strapless bra, but the one I did have I broke.
When we were getting near the checkouts I seen some random clothing on clearance. Mostly everything that would fit me was marked $3 – it was mostly girls clothing. I found a pair of leopard print jeans so I had to buy them. Well at the checkout they were only $1! If I would have known that I would have bought the other pair that fit me! Oh well, two pairs of leopard print jeans is enough…right?
That afternoon I started making this thing called a banana split cake – it’s not really a cake. The crust is a basic graham cracker crust – super easy to make. Once that has cooled you put a butter cream frosting all over that. Top that with a layer of crushed pineapple and sliced banana. The last thing is topping it all with whipped topping! I admit the pineapple in the mixture kind of threw me off – but it tastes good! I guess I made it because I’m thinking so much of summer weather, and when I found the recipe it did make me think of summer.
While I was getting ready to add the whipped topping I got a text from a friend saying he was there to pick me up. It was kind of news to me because I was in a hoodie and pj pants! So I had to rush to finish this cake up. Which I ended up using my hands to spread the whipped topping. ^_^ I threw on jeans and left.
As usual we started the night at the coffee shop. Where I found out their wifi wasn’t working. Then we ended up going to the hookah place in Canton. I made myself a little bed on the couch there and just laid there for the most part. That was until this super cute dude came in. It looked like he had his hair cut for a pomp but didn’t have it styled as a pomp. ^_^ Well anyways HOT. I’m pretty sure he seen me watching him too. Opps.
Saturday – as usual – started the coffee shop and ended with us bowling again and playing a game of pool.
My goal for this week is to just relax and try to get over this dang cold before the weekend. I know I’m a major buzz kill when I’m sitting there coughing myself to death.
And since I’m going to con in June I have been trying to work on my Little Red Riding Hood costume. ^_^ I have the skirt 100% finished! The top on the other hand is still only about 50% finished – I still have to put the button holes in the back of it and lace it up. I haven’t really started on the cape though, I’ve been looking through all the red fabric I own to figure out how I can pull it off since I need the cape to be longer then I thought – the skirt is a little short so if the cape is a little longer I won’t feel weird about it. ^_^ I’ve also started on making a couple felt muffins for my basket.
My other costume is totally finished – skirt & top. ^_^
We’re only going for one day but I’m taking two just because I don’t know what I’ll feel like wearing.
It’s crazy to think con is coming up so quickly considering it’s not until June! Then a couple weeks after con I’ll be in Pittsburgh for my birthday. ^_^ I can’t fucking wait! Plus I think I already have my outfit picked out – my red plaid skirt, black fishnets, red & black socks, boots & The Adicts t-shirt. Or I could do the black skirt and black & white socks instead. That’s all if the weather is good…but considering it will be June I’ll only have to worry about rain. So if it’s not suppose to rain my mohawk will be up. ^_^
Talking about mohawk…I did dye it but you can’t really tell a difference. >_< I bought this “ultra blonde” dye and well it didn’t even lighten my natural colored hair much at all. And now my red hair is now an odd hot pink color. But Saturday I’m suppose to go to Canton with a friend and I’m getting a real bleaching kit & new dye – hoping to find yellow.
Today my main project was getting patches of fabric together for a patchwork skirt I’m going to work on from time to time within the next couple months. I seen a skirt like it in a catalog but I’m not willing to spend $30 (plus shipping) on a skirt. So fingers crossed I’ll be able to make mine look like it – or better. ^_^
