about me

My photo
Denver, Colorado, United States
i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.


should i do it for real?

i'm contemplating getting my nose pierced. right now i have a fake magnetic one. a real one will be smaller. what do you think? i'll be in vegas this weekend...

and in other news, sonic the hedgehog ended up coming home with me last night and is no doubt snoozing the day away.

and since i know you're all dying to see my new curtains. here's a picture of one of the sides i've sewn so far.


starter pet

ok. i can't get a puppy yet. not until i find out about my potential new job, and the litter is born and all that. however, i am seriously wanting a pet right now. i have always thought about getting a hedgehog - and in fact begged si to let us get one about a year ago. so i've been keeping my eyes open on craigslist for hedgehog listings and i finally found one yesterday! i'm going to go look at him this week, and hopefully we'll hit it off and i can take him home next week. this will be good for me because they require care and attention, but i can leave him in his cage all day and not feel guilty (since he'll be sleeping anyway!). so i present to you: sonic the hedgehog


just call me martha

i need to get curtains for my living room. mostly because my energy bill is over $200 and it's fucking freezing in there, but also to have a little privacy since i will be living there alone shortly.

the new color scheme for my living room is going to be chocolate brown and turquoise. because i just love that color combination - and now i can do whatever i want! so i spent saturday scouring everywhere for chocolate brown curtains. you'd think that would be an easy thing to find. well it's not.

then it dawned on me. hey, i have a sewing machine*. i can MAKE my own damn curtains! it just so happens that the first site to pop up in google when you type "how to make curtains" is a discount decorator fabric store in denver. if that's not a sign. so i went over there yesterday and spent $50 on this awesome chocolate brown velvet-type material and some turquoise/brown houndstooth material for the border and tabs. i finished one panel yesterday - and i daresay it's not half bad! of course the stitches could be straighter.. and since i've never had a sewing class, i have no idea if i made any huge errors. but who cares, it's not like i'm planning on entering a county fair anytime soon!

now i just have 5 more panels to go. anyone want to start a betting pool on how long it will take me to get fed up, scrap the project, and settle for something from bed, bath & beyond?

*si: "but, you said you wanted a sewing machine!?!?" me: "well yeah, but not as a christmas present from my BOYFRIEND!"


real fluffy puffy puppies

i've decided that i'm going to finally get a puppy! yes. a fluffy, puffy, puppy. i've wanted one for so long and si wasn't a dog person so we never had one. i really want an alaskan malamute. i've always had this type of dog growing up and they're awesome! i've had cuteness overload all day looking at puppy pictures, so i thought i'd share!

these pups are some of the now-adult dogs from the breeder i'm looking at. i know.

and here are just some of the cutest pup pictures i saw online. they're so cute i can't stand it. i just want to nuzzle them and become a sled dog racer.



screw having a theme for all my blog entries. this is just a random update.
i'm actually going to call my new car pepe. not zippy. pepe is fun to say. and the black racing stripes are like a reverse skunk.
busy weekend. drinking friday. show on saturday. met someone saturday who actually ended up already being a myspace friend and neither of us knew it. that was kind of trippy, but fun. riding sunday - beautiful weather, no traffic, good company. can't complain.
decided i'm going to get an alaskan malamute puppy. they're so cute i can hardly stand it! here is the breeder i'm looking at. they'll have a litter ready in august. i'm going to see if i can find one in a shelter before then.
simon is being a jackass. i might have to get a lawyer because he just tried to pull the "everything you own is now half mine" card. not sure it applies to things i got before the "marriage". irritating. he hasn't moved out yet and i fear it's going to be a few more weeks before i get my house back.
i have another interview in a couple weeks. it's a 2nd interview. very excited. cross your fingers for me!


i shall call it zippy

my new car*

*which will be delivered in only 2 months, versus the 5 quoted by the dealership, thanks to my kick ass broker!
