“I want action tonight. Satisfaction alright!”

I have no idea why I have that song in my head. (Get your head out of the gutter!) It just popped into my head so I thought I would write it.

I’m sitting under a camper’s canopy with six other people. The boys are talking computers and the girls are talking about hair. Wow, isn’t that interesting? It’s kinda funny. So why am I sitting here outside under a canopy? Let me tell you.

Yesterday after work we packed up the car and drove to Leesburg. It’s bike week here. Holy cow, can I tell you how many times I’ve jumped at the sound of bikes revving up?!?!?
When we left yesterday we were a mile or two down the road, 27, and I remembered that we forgot the chairs. So I made Rick turn around and go to the house and get them. He didn’t want to, but he did. He was frustrated. We got to Joe’s brother’s house and just as we pulled onto the road where he lived they were pulling out in a big van. So, they stopped. We parked. And we jumped into a van with 6 other guys. And when I say guys, I mean guys and girls. The driver apparently didn’t know where he was going and the girl in the passenger seat was trying to tell him where to go. It was crazy. There wasn’t a middle seat so half of us were sitting on the floor! We pulled up to a parking spot; finally. All of us started walking around through the crowd. We found one stage and they were having a beauty contest. We caught the bikini part of the show. How exciting!!!?!?!? I guess we were looking for the stage that had this one particular band so we moved on. We walked through lots of booths and eventually found it. This band was ok, Rick forgot his earplugs so we stayed back a little bit. So, we started walking through the booths. Rick didn’t know what chaps were so I had to show him. It was funny because someone made a joke about chaps earlier and Rick didn’t get.

Before this weekend what happened? Um…….I’m trying to think but the alcohol is getting to me. I’m just kidding. I haven’t even drank a drop of alcohol. I had two Coke Vanillas. So what did happen this past week? I had to work. That wasn’t very exciting. I had lunch with mom almost every day. That was great. I loved it.

Man, I feel brain dead! I can’t think of anything. I’m really tired. Rick couldn’t sleep well. His reflux was bothering him and he didn’t have enough pillows. So I slept pretty good, except that every time Rick moved he would complain!! He woke up at an un-Godly hour because he had to go to the bathroom. I did too so I got up with him and went into the house. Rick stayed and I told him I was going to go back to bed. I did and Rick stayed in the house. I slept a couple more hours until Rick came in the tent looking for the car key. And of course he had to talk to me. So I got up, got dressed, and came out of the tent. Only Rick, Sammy and another lady were up. I was like, crap. I thought that everyone was awake but no. Anywho…..I’m having a good time. Great time. I am kinda hungry so that is putting a damper on things!!!
So I guess I should go and try to figure out what’s for breakfast. Who am I kidding? I’m not. I’m going to sit here and not do anything. Besides I have to get off because some guy just asked if I was looking at porn. So I love you ALL


“Somebody once asked, “could you spare some change for gas
I need to get myself away from this place”
I said yep what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change”

Change. Sometimes I like it. Sometimes I don’t. I changed my Xanga look. After about five years? I feel quite old and it’s weird. I’m looking at old posts now. Some interesting stuff.
I just looked at a post years ago when I was still watching Madyson and my quote came from her saying “Holly likes it when he’s naked.” She was referring to a cartoon Yak. Great cartoon. Have to say I miss the naked Yak. And Madyson.
Another post quote: “Will we still think our jokes are funny when were 25?” Holy cow. I’m 25. I wrote this in 2005. It’s from Vitamin C’s song. I’m 25. I’m going to be 26 this year. THIS YEAR!! Where did the time go?
Just a little Xanga fact: I started writing, my very first blog, was on February 19, 2004. Can you believe it? And the main thing I wrote was that I was copying off of Windy (Cobourne). Wow.
The main reason I was going through the old ones was to look at one particular blog. I think it was titled My favorite memories. All the pictures aren’t there anymore. I wish they were. I read through most of it though. I really wanted to see the pictures.

I am going to end it here. I have band practice tonight. I’m kinda looking forward to it. Well, I love you ALL


“She’s a briiiiiccccccckkkkk house.”

I heard this last Friday night at the Vue. That’s the club were having our reception at.
John had come over earlier and then Michael called and asked if we wanted to go out to eat and so John came along with us. Joe and Sammy met us there as well so we had a nice group all together. We met up at Kazbors. I had never heard of it up until I moved to Clermont. It’s kind of like a sports bar. That type of menu and atmosphere. I had some chicken tenders that made my stomach a little yucky feeling. After we were all done eating Michael said he wanted to go to Vue, so we all got in our cars (John in ours) and we drove the (maybe) two miles to get there. They have door people and they wouldn’t let Rick in because he didn’t have a collared shirt on. Rick was mad and asked to see the owners; whom we know. Kyle came out and pretty much said Rick had to change. I said I would just run back home and get a shirt.

So I drove home and grabbed a shirt and I of course had to change because I was also wearing a t-shirt; but a nice one. So I dressed up a little bit. Came back with the shirt and there’s Rick and John waiting outside for me to get back. They let us in free and we had seats at the bar already waiting for us with Joe, Sammy and Michael. I think we stayed there about two hours before John had to leave. It was getting kind of late, but the only problem was that I had to drive him back to the house because that’s where his car was. Took him back, said goodbye and I drove back to Vue. It was a bit more crowded since it was later and a Friday night. The band was ok. They were called Allure, and I swear that Loraine from PCC was in it. I was going to shout out: LORAINE! but I didn’t think she would hear me! It looked like her though. So I will just assume it is her. I don’t think we left till after midnight. The funniest part of the whole night was Sammy. She and Rick ordered these shots called Sex with an Alligator. I have no idea how they got that name and the only thing I know for sure in them is Jagermeister. So Rick sipped his and Sammy started to but the bartender said it would be easier on you if you just shot it. Like your supposed to! So Rick continued to sip his and Sammy downed hers! It was funny because after that one she was like yuck! Then a few minutes later she ordered another one! Very funny.

Dad’s birthday is this weekend so were going down on Saturday and staying the night. It should be fun. I miss “home.”

We had something break on the Bug. The skid plate, I think is what it’s called. So we have to get that fixed. Exciting stuff. Not really. It doesn’t excite me at all!

More exciting news is that almost all the invitations are mailed. I have to buy one cent stamps for a few of them and then they are done. Except for the ones around Clermont. I don’t have all their addresses yet because my big manly man won’t get the addresses! So, they will get out this week. That is my deadline. It will happen!! It will. And if it doesn’t, than I will be quite mad. Any who. I guess there isn’t that much going on here. I’ll end it here. I love you ALL


“Your Everything.”

That’s from the Lighthouse song and I only know it because of the skit that goes along with it. Sarah, our music minister, just emailed me and said that were going to perform it; or at least try to. And she wanted to know if I would help her out. I was like of course. She sent me the link in her email and as soon as the first scene appeared I went right back to my reply and said heck yes I’ll help!! I think this skit is soooo amazing. I copied the link here. I hope it works. I was trying to put it here but we’ll see if it works. If it doesn’t, don’t blame me.

I’m trying to clean some things today. I made myself a list of things that needed cleaned or done…….we shall see how far I get with that. Actually it’s all easy stuff. I just need to motivate myself into doing it. I tried yesterday but I re-organized our bedroom and that took a huge chunk of my time. It’s really clean now and it doesn’t look so cluttered. Rick said he liked it but he had better, right? It’s mainly clearing piles. Like, on the kitchen table there is this pile of stuff there: letters, old papers, receipts and stuff like that. I just need to get things separated and put up. That’s my goal for the day. That and go to the gym. Big goals today. Hopefully at least one will get done!! I want to go to a class at the gym but Rick just likes to work out on the equipment. And I can’t go to a class without someone so…..I’ll just work out with him I guess. If we don’t go it’s not big deal, I’ll just pop in my Pilates DVD and work to that. It’s really a good one. I have it almost memorized. I was doing it every day for awhile and then I stopped. I can imagine how my legs are going to feel after I do the DVD again! Yikes.

Last night there was an Elks meeting. It looks like I’m going to be initiated in two weeks from yesterday. Isn’t that just the coolest? Any who. Dawn, the Exalted Ruler (or head Elk!), was joking with me last night that then I’ll be able to see all the secret stuff that goes on in there. She’s pretty funny. Last night they did installation of officers and I got to go in as a guest. Just for that part of the meeting because I’m not an Elk yet. So it was nice. Rick was re-installed as the chaplain. It’s all just show. Pomp and circumstance. That’s all it is. But it was nice to get to sit in, because I’m a little nervous about the initiation. I’ve heard some “scary” things. Any Elks out there want to give me a heads up? I doubt it, because my own husband won’t tell me anything. It’s crazy too because I’ve read the whole handbook thingy to help Rick memorize his lines. Yes, they have lines to memorize. It’s like a play they put on each meeting. Craziness. But I’m going to be part of it! I think being an officer would be fun, just a little time consuming. Any who. Right after the installation I had to leave and the bartender, Mel, left too. Technically noone is supposed to sit outside at the bar while a meeting is going on but wive’s of officers can. Something like that. So I had me a Sprite. (I told Rick I feel like a little kid asking for a Sprite and all the “big” people around me are drinking beers and wine and what not.) There was a huge storm going on and all of a sudden the lights flickered on and off and they stayed off. Kinda. The lights were on just slightly and the big Budweiser sign was still lit along with the lights showcasing the liquor! But everything else was dark. It was pretty freaky because right before that I was getting ready to go to the bathroom and if I would’ve went then it would’ve been scary for me!!!! We left shortly after the meeting was over and came home and had some ice cream.

I don’t think I have anything else to write about so I’ll leave it here. I love you ALL
