Staycations are for Winners, and Post it Note Tuesday

YOYOYO. Kick it one more time fellers.

I know… I’m so white I don’t even need a night light… (I don’t even know what that means)

I’m so white, I make Queen look like Queen Latifa…

I’m so white, I make Casper shit his pants…

Ok I’ll quit.

So here I am quickly approaching day two of my Stay-cation. Did I mention that I’m off this week? Cause, yeah- I most definitely am. Friday was my last day of work at my old job, and next Monday I start a new postition that is much, much closer to home.That being said, for the majority of this week my web-presence is most likely going to be non-existant. I’ll try my best to read as many blogs from my phone, but I probably won’t be able to comment much. I’ve got quite a few things to take care of, plus- I’m spending the majority of my time watching movies and writing up some reviews over at Red Carpet Crash. So check it people!

Lets dive right into these stickies, shall we? For more awesome sticky note greatness, make sure you check out Supah Mommy’s page!

real i have a dream1


While I’m so super pumped about my week off, one of these days I would truly like a week off, where I have absolutely no obligatgions. More than that, I cannot express to you just how great this Rocky Mountain jalapeno popcorn is. I wish I was famous and could get some sort of endorsement or like 8 years of free popcorn or something, but I’m not. But still.. it’s the shitsizzle.



A few weeks ago, my roommate LA discovered this stuff, and I can’t decide if it is my heaven or my hell. Either way, I’ve been eating an average of 300000000 kernels a day, and so far, I think it’s worth it.


Isn’t it weird how you won’t smell something for years, and then all of a sudden you get a whiff of something that brings a whole life-time of memories back to you? Usually this only happens when I get a whiff of cafeteria food, and I’m brought back to the days when we used to have competitions in my elementary school (and then later college) cafeterias, seeing how many foods we could mix together and then eat. The winner got the best item from someone’s lunch at the table. Today though, I found an old perfume oil at the bottom of one of my old purses. I put it on, and immediately was brought back to my life 3 years ago. It wasn’t the most happy time of my life, but I vividally recalled a few moments that I wouldn’t had otherwise. I’m not sure of what my point in sharing this was, other than- be careful what you smell.


I’ve gotten the opportunity of the lifetime the last few days at the Dallas International Film Festival. I’ve seen quite a few films, and none have managed to disapoint, which doesn’t make for the best fare when you’re out to write reviews. My favorite moment so far? Meeting Clint Howard. I know most of you probably think he’s an ugly sonofabitch… but you know, I’ve always had this weird unexplainable fascination with the dude. So meeting him was pretty much euphorical…

I can’t eve start to explain to you how excited I am to be a member of BRTWOA (Bike Riders to Work Of America). I just made it up, but really I’m pumped. How awesome not to have to waste precious money on asshole gas.  YAY!

I also can’t tell you how excited I am about my newest purchase. I have many projects on the way, some of which include my roommate LA, and others which have to do with my dare project. Speaking of, you should really submit a dare, even if you have already. I’m planning on getting many of these dare up and going in the near future, and I CAN”T WAIT. All you have to do is dare me, bitch. I dare you.


I know you probably thought my absence from the web had something to do with the ants eating at my brain, and if you did- you were partially right.YAY for you. But seriously, thanks for all your suggestions on how to do away with my pesky little problem, I’m on them all. Tonight, I try cucumbers. We’ll see how that goes. Keep your suggestions coming, because obviously my traps aren’t doing a damn thing…


I really do. All I want to do right now is have 1 million hours to read everyone’s posts. I feel so out of the loop. I heart you and I hope you remember me in my absense. And maybe I’ll get a chance to get around. Yeah, not like that…

    I hope you waited until you stopped peeing your pants before you changed them. Because once you've peed them once, then they're peed, they can't be unpeed. You might as well pee them two more times, rather than peeing 3 different pairs of pants.

    I love a staycation. I haven't had one in ages. I want one soon, but after taking some time off to do the Canberra thing, I won't be asking for leave again for awhile.

    Congrats on becoming a BRTWOA.

    I have noticed a definite upswing in the blogs mentioning John Cusack. Hmm…I don't mind, of course. He is hot! Oh yeah, great actor, too. LOL!
    I hope your staycation leaves you some time to relax. Have a great week! (((HUGS)))

    Stay-cations can be every bit as great as vacations….except cheaper and with no transportation delays. Enjoy yours, CJ!!

  • herding Cats

    Staycations are fabulous. I'm excited for your new job, and I'm jealous you get to ride your bike! Think of the money you'll save!!! So awesome :)

  • Harriet

    Your popcorn sounds rather interesting.
    Have a great Tuesday!

  • JustMe

    Ants are pretty impossible to get rid of. Unless you gas your whole house. As long as they're not in your bed, you're okay.

    You make me laugh long time.

    But I did NOT need to see that photo of Clint. Gah. Sorry, Clint. Also sorry that I accidentally typed “Cliff” twice before scrolling back up to check. Sorry.

    I've never tried jalapeno popcorn, but I'm pretty sure I have to now. Also I plan to take a staycation tomorrow. It'll just be for one day, but there will be a fort and lots of junk food.

  • Nikki

    Jalapeno popcorn!? I need to find myself some of this. I'm really in love with the Trader Joe's olive oil popcorn. So good!

    Enjoy your staycation…is there a pool?

  • jeneypeney

    I'm totally buying a bike this weekend too!

    I want to start biking to work, even though it's a good 6 to 7 miles away…

    But that should be good for my triathlon training, right?

    PS – Jalapeno (I totally pronounced that juh-lah-pen-yo” in my head) popcorn? Nom nom nom!

  • jayayceeblog

    Every time I smell fresh cut grass, it takes me right back to summertime as a kid when school had recently gotten out and you had the whole, long, wonderful summer ahead …

  • Dani

    Jalapeno Popcorn?! Uh…yum.

    I totally hear you on the smells. I don't so much get memories of times in my life as I do people. The Ex smelled like Speed Stick and Bounce sheets all the time…for a while I couldn't walk by a laundromat without getting all emotional.

  • johanah

    I love Jalapenos!! Totally awesome! ;p

  • aphroditeandme

    Anyone that actually posts a picture of that Howard boy on their blog deserves a follow 😉 And so … Aphrodite and I are sooo following you 😉 Stop by my place when you can 😉

  • Lori

    I'm taking a vacation to the beach in a month and doing NOTHING but lay on the beach from morning to night and eat whatever I want! NO RESPONSIBLITIES!! Of course, that shouldn't be a problem since I'll only have my husband, my three year old, my cousin, her husband, their 6 month old, my parents, my friend, her husband, and her three year old with me! Nothing to it!!

  • hiphophippie

    Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiit, now I totally need that popcorn! Must must must!

    Dewd, enjoy your week! That's badass! I'll be thinking of you while I'm working another late night. Wah. Call the wahmbulance.

  • Sherri

    I recently bought a new bike and went for a non-fancy beach cruiser. I love it but find myself riding kamikaze style, which is a little unnerving for cars, buses and pedestrians.

    Enjoy your staycation!

  • Kimwithak

    Enjoy the hell out of your time in between jobs. That kind of time is precious.

  • Andhari

    What's a jalapeno popcorn because that looks super yummy and I need a bag, stat.

  • beckeye

    Jalapeno popcorn sounds worse than a shit sandwich.
