Makes ya think...

I borrowed this from a blog I read. Okay, stole. Either way, here goes...

1 minute ago... I was C&Ping this.

1 hour ago... I was sending Jason off to poker night.

1 day ago... I was getting ready to watch 24.

1 month ago... I was doing the HOORAY for Christmas dance.

1 year ago... I was totally stoked for my wedding, and booking our trip to Yellowstone.

1 decade ago... I was a senior in HS, trying to decide what I wanted to major in. B/c EVERYONE who goes to OSU has their major declared right from the least, that's what my dad claimed.

2 decade ago... I was getting ready to move from Cincinnati to Michigan. Damn, that was 20 years ago. I also wore skirts.all.the.time.

5 minutes ago... I was thinking "Wow, a 2 hour delay tomorrow would be cool."

5 days ago... I was marveling at the pretty snow.

5 months ago... I was adjusting to newlywed life.

5 years ago... I was taking the GRE for the third time and getting my grad school applications out.

AAAAAND-hooray for President Obama! Though I didn't get to watch the inauguration live, this was still a pretty sweet day. Yay for democracy!

Big dork alert here...but Star Trek: Enterprise is back on HDNet! It's strange, I've never been into the various Star Trek shows or movies...but Jason and I are ADDICTED to Enterprise! Maybe it's because Scott Bakula's character has a supercute beagle on the show, I don't know.

Also, yay for Costco! Melissa and I made our monthly trip there last night, and I lovelovelove that place. Seriously. We now have more food than you can shake a stick at, and that's okay.

A big non-yay goes out to Central Ohio's current weather. It's fucking cold, man. And snowy. I like days off from school, but this is getting ridiculous. I haven't run outside in almost a month, and I miss it. (No, I am not hardcore like my sister. It's too cold, plain and simple). This weather makes me want to sit inside and eat...and that will make my butt get big. So, no.

That's all I've got for just hasn't been THAT interesting lately :)

I got double tagged...

by Simi and D ! So I get to find the 4th picture in the 4th folder whereever I store my pictures (in this case, my jump drive), and then explain it. Here goes...

Snort. Marengofest 2005! Jason's best friend's (that's him in the hat) parents have a house in Marengo, and for a few years they would have their kids and all their friends up to the house around Memorial Day for a birthday party (for Jason's best friend and one of their other friends) slash all around drunkfest. Marengofest always starts out as a chill day cooking out and drinking beer, and ends in...4am games of flip cup, which is what you're seeing here. Good times, good times.
And nowww, I tag...
You're it, ladies!

Updates and other randomness

But first off, a rant. HowTF do Columbus weathermen get away with telling us to expect 3-5 inches of snow on Saturday, only to see us get some freezing rain and a dusting of snow? I mean, I've learned to not put much stock in weather reports, but they really screwed the pooch on this one. Those bastids got my hopes up for NOTHING!

However, it was butt-ass fucking cold this weekend, so I actually got a lot of little stuff done around the house-unpacking random boxes and finding homes for the stuff that was in them (picture frames, candles, etc.), laundry, blah blah blah. Plus, I got some stuff put in the stand alone bar counter we picked up from Melissa's neighbors Mike and Rebecca when they moved to Chicago, along with a coffee table and fire pit (pictures to come, eventually). Hooray for being productive!

Today begins Week 2 of the back-on-the-diet bandwagon. It helps that I'm taking part in two "Biggest Loser" contests-one at work, and one with a Columbus-based women's message board that I frequent. Not so much because I have a lot of weight to lose (I'm only about 10 lbs from my goal weight), but because I need to be held accountable...and these contests will hopefully help keep me accountable for what I'm eating and how much I'm working out. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNDDDDD I officially signed up for the Flying Pig 1/2 Marathon (the first Sunday in May, in Cinci), so I need to make more of an effort to eat healthier. I'm trying to remember to log what I'm eating on Sparkpeople, but this tends to go to crap once I eat something that I KNOW isn't going to be listed (like the fries, horseradish sauce, and bites of roast beef dip sandwich I just mooched from Jason :P). Still, I'm working on it.

J's new job is going well. He's DEFINITELY far happier than he'd been at the last place he worked at for the last couple of years, AND he doesn't have to work until 2am EVER.AGAIN. This makes us both infinitely happy.

You wanna know what else makes us infinitely happy? The 24 premiere is on tonight...finally! Yee-ha!

Me=12 year old boy

Jason and I are watching the South Park movie, and giggling like preteenage boys. This is AWESOME.

Plus, my baby sister is home from the f'ing bayou...YAAAAAAAAY Julie!
