Halloween 2008

We had an amazing Halloween. As you all know I am a Halloween lover. This year we all decided, ok, well, I decided, that we should dress up as Super Heroes. This year we played the new Disney Tinker Bell movie and Ironman on the big screen. Now I have to start thinking of a theme for next year!

I hope you all had an amazing Halloween too!

My Lesbian Lover

Ok, no, not really, but I am in love Jillian Michaels' body, especially her arms. I would kill to have guns like that! Anyway, here is a really good article about her views on weight loss. I love her even more now. Five things I learned from Jillian Michaels - read it and follow the links, I think it gives some pretty good advice, some that I should be following.

Me Making A Dessert??

I will be going to my 20th high school reunion planning meeting today and was asked to take a dessert. John thinks I am setting the bar too high. I am trying to make a good impression, so maybe this will do it.

The internet

The internet has let me down! I usually rely on the internet to find pretty much everything in my life. I use it to find items for my kid's birthday parties, I use it to find long lost friends and to remind me why there are so, and I use it to search for any diseases I might be having. How else would I of known that was dying from a malignant tumor last year?! Anyway, the internet completely let me down this time.

How hard can it be to find a black mini dress with split-sleeves?? Huh??? It is nearly impossible. I have been searching for a couple of days now to no avail. I pretty much have had to settle for a tunic with 3/4 sleeves, which I am pretty sure will be way too short, I guess I will be flashing a some people. On top of that the dress, err tunic, I am settling for is costing me $158!

I am still kinda pissed off about this whole internet business. You would think that in today's day and age all I would have to do is type an item description and have the exact item I want just pop up. There would be no days on end looking for that magical dress that in my mind will make me look amazing. In a perfect world the item would just be there waiting for me...sigh.

Friday Night Fun

Yippie, I had a great time. We started FNF at Coaches Pub in Midtown. We had drinks and dinner (I think I was the only one eating, I hate when that happens), and then headed to the Tavern on Gray. It was fun, we just hung out and played pool. A nice night.

UH vs. UAB Game

I attended the UH vs. UAB game. My friend Mark invited me to attend the Delta Upsilon tailgating pre-game party. I had not hung out with the guys in ages, but since my horoscope said for me to try new things, I decided to go. I had fun even though the guys kept calling me MA'AM. Yeap, I felt old. On the plus side, I did see one of old-skool brothers; I guy that I hung out with back in the day. It was so much fun to see him again after almost 15 years. I guess I am old!

Saturday Night Fun

On Saturday I attended the Houston Tiara's Happy Hour at Mak Chin's. It was a lot of fun. I so enjoy going out and meeting new people (yeah, that makes me sound like a dork, but it's true).

Anyway, I left my tiara in the car so I ended up bumming off tiaras for the pics.

After the Happy Hour we headed to Shadowbar for my girl Milly's bday party.
