Friday Nights now that I'm 30...

From getting kicked out of Bowling alleys to sitting home alone (with Frederick) on a Friday night. But this is my choice and I love it. I chose to sit home tonight to finish my book and surf the web and watch 20/20. Barbara Walters bugs, I just had to say that. 

I finally finished the book I've been reading almost all summer and the first part of fall. Wicked! I love this book. I just have to say that it is so good and because I have not seen the play or heard the soundtrack to the play that I was able to fully enjoy it. I was warned that it is nothing like the play. It was much more deep than I usually care for when I read but I am happy to have read it. It's political, spiritual, questions religion and asks you to think for yourself. There is nothing more freeing than thinking for yourself. As an adult I am experiencing it in the most fulfilling ways. I loved, loved this book. 
"Those times are over and gone, and good riddance to them, too. We were hopelessly high-spirited. Now we're the thick-waisted generation, dragging along our children behind us and carrying our parents on our backs. And we're in charge, while the figures who used to command our respect are wasting away."

This is what I have to put up with every time I am either reading a book, a magazine or on the computer. He can't stand for you to not be paying attention to him. He will inch and slink his way in between whatever you are doing. He is such a shit but I love him so much. He has the coolest and most genuine character a dog can have. This pic is of him saying "Look at me! Look at me!"

So I saw this book in Urban Outfitters and wanted to buy it immediately but I resisted. (You know because of the economy and all...lol) It's hilarious; "Stuff White People Like". And no it's not a site for the Arian Nation. They recently posted a blog about white people and pea coats. I laughed so hard because that is the thing I wanted most on my birthday wish list and I made sure my parents bought it for me. OMG! I am so white! Aaaa! I've been fighting it my whole life but I have to face it, I am a white girl in almost every sense except for my big booty. Check out their site to the right under my Connected section. 

If you can't laugh at yourself and at life in general how sad would that be?
I had to add another pic from my kid themed birthday party.
