probably the most boring post in the world

today i went to the fitness center and did 2 miles on the bike and 1 mile running/walking and about 30 reps of the leg curl thing and 30 reps of the pull down the bar thing haha.. i have no clue what that certain weight lifting thing is. i had to urge to work out since i recieved my IPOD arm band thingie in the mail saturday, but i didnt check the mail until sunday. so there i was on the treadmill loosing blood in my right arm because i put the band on too tight .. haha .. i wish there was a camera following me all the time to witness the true brilliance that is ashley.

anyways! i had a salad for linner. because well it was too late to be lunch but too early for dinner and since my schedule doesnt allow me to have lunch i shall call it LINNER. so well you know how it feels after you work out, sweaty , sort of sea leg like and then it hits you. HUNGER. so i ate a banana

blood.. gore... and cupcakes

i am gimpy. i cut 3 of my fingers on my right hand. see what had happened was after the oscars i got excited because million dollar baby won best picture and started making cupcakes, i open up the container of frosting and i guess the foil was sharp because it cut my pointer, middle and ring fingers, kind of like a paper cut... it hurts so bad. my hands look like kevin spacey in se7en when he cut off his finger tips to hide his prints.

i love the way your teeth feel after a good brushing. mmm.. i should become a dentist.

bedtime for bonzo..

then we went grocery shopping and came home where i watched the totally lame horror movie THEY. wow.. what complete crap!

today we are going to pick up passes to see the jacket and then probably haha go watch hotel rwanda AND THEN THE OSCARS!

today was overall pretty average.. EXCEPT !!! the frickin' awesome fajitas i had today after work at La Feria. our waiter was this guy who looked like Eddie Izzard but talked with an incredibly hot accent. kinda south american kind of spaniard.

we had to trade scouts toy out with a new one because she was sucking on it too much. gross i know, but shes a weird cat what can i say, therefor at the moment shes banging against the bathtub trying to get a hold of her new mouse toy. this one is leopard print, so she must be having a frickin' blast.

OH yea! and i watched My Best Friends Wedding for the first time ever tonight. im a sap when it comes to Romantic Comedies.

cake decorating

i was watching the food network and there was a contest for best birthday cake.
i got the urge to make cupcakes and then kelly mentioned why dont i start decorating cakes.
i mean.. i do know how to use the bags and pipers and can actually legitimating write on a cake. AND i absolutly love making cakes and cupcakes and brownies and all sorts of treats
soo!!! im going to look into cake decorating!

Saturday, February 19, 2005

It's been either raining or drizzling outside since i woke up, gross.

me and joe cleaned the living room and kitchen, we still arent done yet but its looking an awful lot better.
the dishes were begining to get really bad.

last night, me and g went to eat at magnolia with kristen and her mom. it was awesome, we were going to play uno but we were talking too much :)
it was fun though. kristens mom is awesome.

im on a mission to find the perfect ipod cozie, but so far no luck. i guess i will have to make my own.
so far i like brown bear from Chuckels Central, the tropical robot at Catherine's Pita Shop, and either the steve zissou or birdy ones over at Charcoal Designs if only they werent for Mini's only.

good old thursday

i freaking love vinny's, this little italian place off barton springs.. yummmm
me, joseph, kelly and grenita ate there today after work mmmm... im still full.

i watched galaxy quest for the first time tonight, haha, it was actually pretty funny.

we bought way too many DVDs yesterday.. like 100+ bucks worth. oops.

so me and kelly have decided , even tho financially it would be smart to live with a roommate one more year. we want to live on our own starting in June.
im sick of roommates and we have been together long enough to wear its ridiculous to have a roommate again.
we are thinking either Pinto Creek, Blunn Creek or Barton's lodge if the prices are good around the times we want.. they all have either washer/dryer connections or come with an actual washer/dryer. we neeeeed furniture. we dont have anything. nothing at all. we need a couch, some sort of chair , a coffee table, folding table and chairs for the dining table/ sewing table, LAMPS

okay so we are planning to be married in september of 2006 and i just want to say screw it and elope but then another part of me says .. nooo i shouldnt do that..

someone buy me this..

to top it all off

to top off a terrible day, scout decided to go on an adventure around 1 am..
joe was doing laundry and i guess left the door open as he did so and scout took off..
i didnt notice until 2 am that she wasnt around so i started looking around outside.. barefoot... in the cold.
we searched around the complex in areas we think she would go..
ask joe walked past the dumpster he saw her on the other side of the fence.. she must have gone underneath the fence..
we coaxed her back under the fence and then she started hiding under cars. kelly came around with her bucket of food and snatched her up
of course she screamed haha.. and her paws were all dirty.

i didnt freak out and i didnt cry.. kelly was proud of me..
it just wasnt what i needed..

the phone call

my mom called me this morning .
yea sure, i know that doesnt sound strange but she never calls unless its important..
and well i listened to the message because i was at work.
all she says is "call me" in a upset sounding voice..
i knew it was grandma juju.. shes been in the hospital since october.

i couldnt stand it so i called her while i was working..
she says that grandma juju is getting worse and that she will probably pass in the next few days.
and dad is already there in corpus christi
first instinct is i need to get to corpus to see her one last time..
so i planned on heading out tonight but.. i call dad after work and he says the she cant even talk and cant even comprehend what anyone tells her, that shes all doped up on pain killers so when she does pass she wont feel a thing. the doctors at the hospice were shocked that she even made it thru last night.

what sucks the most is that she's not old enough.. she was having problems with her colon..
and a surgery wont even help her at this point.
we just started talking more and mailing cards back and forth learning more and more about each other .. this was right before she started getting sick in october..
i cant help to think what my dad feels like.. loosing his mother..
she never got to have any great grandchildren..
let alone see me get married..
me and my brother were her only grandchildren

so in the next few days im going to have to take a trip to corpus christi for the funeral..


Saturday, February 05, 2005

oh man...

so today we decided to retry our little adventure to san antonio since last week it got interrupted by a severe lane closure which left us in traffic for an hour and only 5 minutes out of austin...
this time the trip went pretty well and it only sprinkled for a little while
we could only find one out of the 3 record stores.
we went to hogwild and found absolutely nothing..

then after all of that we went to mandy's apartment and watched shaun of the dead and played with her doggie bowen.
as the hair stylist that she is she put highlights in my hair.. copper and blonde. they are different but i think i like them..

we stopped at a best buy and kelly got transformers the movie...

the new Real Simple is out.. i need to get a subcription already!!

well.. i need to make a grocery list for when we head out to the grocery store..

scout the cat

so for the past 3 days scout has left her favorite mouse toy in her food dish.. as if to remind herself where she left it for later playing. but when she eats she just eats around it and leaves it just sitting in her food

and she attempts to steal goldfish out of a closed box.. shes so cute..

ah it was all a dream

i had an insane dream last night about kelly.

so laura is an ex-roommate of ours that was doug's girlfriend at the time and well a looooong time ago kelly and laura went on a sort of a date.
so in my dream we went to kelly's parent's house, though, it wasnt kelly's parent's house it was one of my imagination. the walls were all black in kelly's room and it was raining.
he had 2 twin beds in the room and kelly was on one and me and laura were there too..
eventually in my dream laura and kelly ended up on the same bed and laura kept trying to get all grabby with kelly i saw her reach around his waist and stuff so i pulled her by her pants over to the other bed and called her a bitch i think and asked her what the fuck she was doing.. of course she didnt give a very good answer..

well i must get ready for work .. scout is acting crazy. silly girl.

the last few days

the sun finally came out today, the last few days its been rainy and cold. Appearantly West TX was supposed to get some snow, i'm unsure if that ever did happen though.

me and kelly went and bought some long overdue new sheets. they are awesome and soooo soft. scout seems to like them. we also got some new gray towels... wait.. pewter towels. we have always wanted to have an all grey/silver bathroom so we are going to get that started. he joined JCPENNY and got a card with them so we had like all sorts of discounts. 10% off + the sale that was going on for the towels and sheets. not bad not bad. total savings 132.00

work was boring, i got a free meal tho.

i frickin love girl scout cookies.

i cant wait for the 12th, mates of state AND i get to pick up my chocolate covered strawberries from amy's ice cream.

well i need to do a few things before it gets to late
