2014 Monthly Selfie - April

RIP Ultimate Warrior

I know I'm a little late in the game for this, and it is also the very last day of April but, oh well. A lifetime ago, I used to be obsessed with WWE. The Ultimate Warrior was my favorite until The Rock came along. 

His freak-outs were the best! My bro and I still imitate them from time to time.

7 Things

1. I watched the blood moon - lunar eclipse in bed like a smarty pants. There was a live link streaming a perfect close up of it. It was neat to see it change. I took a screenshot of it instead of getting out of bed to only accomplish getting a blurry iPhone photo of it.

2. I got my first kidney infection now I can scratch that off my bucket list of "Infections to Acquire."

3. The kidney infection started as a UTI (TMI) and made it's little way to my underdeveloped kidney. It's been fun in the sort of way one likes ant bites.

4. My phone hasn't been able to log into FB and I haven't missed it one bit. I didn't even notice until my family was talking about something that happened on it Easter Sunday. That's how conversations start now, "Did you see that post on FB?" Mine usually start with, "So, on Twitter this thing happened," and people give me a blank stare because no one in my real life likes Twitter.

5. I bought tickets to Chiodos for May 13th. I'm beyond excited and I got Tyrone on board so it's going to be one hell of a night.

6. I've been going back and forth with car decisions for the past month or so. My car lease is up in one month and I planned on turning it in so that I could live with out having a car payment, but we've decided to buy my car so I'll be in debt forever now. We've been going through this strange turmoil knowing that it was ending soon and not having a decision made was giving both of us heartburn. The last thing I thought I would do was buy it but it actually feels good knowing I'm going to keep it. My Mazda car salesman husband didn't even try to get me to buy a new one either - not for lack of trying though. My car now is a Mazda 3 and I love it dearly. It's one of those cars that I've always wanted because I'm a sucker for little hatchbacks. It is this bright pretty blue color too. I really don't have a big hangup on having a nice car even though that's how I was raised. Where I'm from having a nice car or big truck is one of those life achievements to strive for even if you can't afford it. Well, I can afford my car so that isn't the issue, I just wanted NO BILLS! I live right next to a Trax station too that drops off right next to my work so I would have been fine M - F but Tyrone is rarely home so I would never be able to go anywhere else unless he was home and you can forget about me walking or riding a bike. I live in an industrial area that isn't really in walking distance of grocery stores and such. My dad has this old Geo Metro too that I could have had fixed up to drive but I had reservations because it would have been like going back to high school when I drove a Ford Fiesta (with cowhide seat covers no doubt). As practical as it sounds to turn my car in it just didn't feel right. Maybe I'm going to need it for something in the future. I'm just glad I feel good about this decision.

Wow that was long. Can you tell it's been driving me insane?

7. Frederick ran so much yesterday that he didn't even want to get out of bed this morning. Tyrone had to pull the covers off of him to get him to wake up. I'm not paying him to stay in bed all day!

How was your Easter?

7 Things

1. Yesterday it was 76 degrees out and all I could think about was I'm not ready to stop wearing my hoodie. For someone who has been whining for warmer weather it's pretty selfish of me.

2. We started season 3 of Game of Thrones last night. We are totally hooked now. BUT I already know what happens at The Red Wedding which ruins SO MUCH! Having been on the internet quite frequently it was hard to avoid. We saw the first episode of the new season 4 on Sunday night at our friend's house as well, but we are still enjoying it a lot. In fact I almost want to read the books now because I need more back story.

Every time Tyrion Lannister is on screen I can't help but say to myself, "He's an angry elf." I can't be the only one.

3. It was one of those mornings where I make love to my mug of coffee.

4. My little bro is going to be 28 tomorrow. Even though he has two kids already, I'm still sort of freaking out that he is going to be 28. Tyrone and I were talking about it last night and he was only 20 when Tyrone and I began dating. In eight years that boy has gone through hell and back and his life has changed in every which way. He is an incredible daddy and husband. He's become quite the man - and if anyone who reads this tells him that I'LL HAVE TO KILL YOU!

5. This is cute. Bitch don't kill my vibe.

6. This photo is beautiful.

7. My allergies are making me even more tired than I usually am.

These pics have nothing to do with this post. Pretty much all I wanted to say was that we are going to see Blue Man Group tonight. That's it. 

Oh, and, people drive me nuts.

Oh, and, I'm off to go buy the new Chiodos album.
