Random Shit on A Boring Friday June 6, 2008

Filed under: uncategorized — Diana @ 1:56 pm

I know that I should at some point sit my ass down and write a real blog post, but the fact of the matter is, I’m probably not going to right now. I’m happy, there’s not much going on, and I don’t feel that the world cares enough about my rambling thoughts to write something out of nothing. So, here goes with some randoms of teh interwebs for your viewing pleasure:

First, the Cute

A cat that is also a hedgehog? Sign me the fuck UP!  From Nebogirl.

Sugar Bush Squirrel Go.  Now.

I don’t know why, but this one was I Can Haz Cheezburger a few weeks ago, and it’s made me giggle at least once a day since then.  Apparently I need an injection of Kids In The Hall, stat.

Second, The Wants

Lolspeak Magnets!!!

Suzanne from CUSS teaches me something I desperately needed to know:  There is a musical called Co-Ed Prison Sluts.  Must.See.

Sixth, Memes I Have Been Saving And Will Now Do

The Anti-“Sex and the City” Meme by Suzanne

What’s the cheapest pair of shoes you own?: I honestly don’t have many cheap shoes anymore – since I have such pressure issues with my feet, I have determined that I will just suck it up and pay what it takes to have shoes that fit and aren’t uncomfortable.  That being said, I did just score a pair of Naturalizer brown sandals (up yours, they’re comfortable) at Marshalls or TJMaxx or something for $25.  I ❤ them.

What’s your favorite piece of jewelry, if you own any?: My wedding rings.  While I heart my wedding ring, I miss being able to wear my engagement ring with it (I have developed some sort of freaking rash under there that my ring pisses off.  I’m lotioning like a fool to get it to go away).

What’s your favorite t-shirt?: My Emily the Strange t-shirt: it says  Emily has a mind of her own and shows her dissecting a brain.  Now that I think of it, I need to find that t-shit.

If you could wear jeans every day, would you? Pretty much, except during the summer when it’s too warm.  I don’t mind a pair of capris or a skirt.

Do you comb your hair every day? Kind of?  I mean, I run the brush through it to make sure it’s not tangled before I dry it, but I never touch it again.

    Have you been to http://graphjam.com/ ? Cuz… you should.

    And is your phobia of being intubated? That’s one of mine, too, though I’ve never thought of it much. Eugh.

  2. Diana Says:

    Being intubated is probably my biggest phobia, and more so now that it’s a regular possibility with the swelling. I have made it very, very clear that if I am to be intubated they are going to have to knock me the fuck out (and yes, I did use those words to the last ER doctor).
