No Blogathon :(

I spent all week trying to fight off whatever bug I was coming down with, and while it hasn’t succeeded in putting me completely out of commission, I haven’t succeeded in knocking it out. I woke up at 3 this morning and had to throw up, and then I woke up at 5 and couldn’t really breathe.

I’m very very VERY sad that I cannot participate this year in Blogathon, but I just can’t afford to get any sicker right now. I just managed to drag myself out of bed to post right now, and will probably be laying back down in a few minutes cause my head is killing me and I still can’t really breathe.

To all my sponsors: thank you for pledging, and I’m sorry I let you guys down :(
To all the other participants: I’ll try to come leave some moral support in the wee hours :D

Here’s hoping that next year turns out better.

Birthday Weekend ROCK!

I had the most fabulous birthday weekend, yay!

Friday night I went to my friend Kristen’s house and had dinner with her and Megan, and we had cake and ice cream and it was totally rad. Then I picked Tom up and the 4 of us headed over to Malone’s where we ran into some of Tom’s friends, and one of Megan’s friends, and this dude that I know from work, and also a girl that actually works with me that I called to come meet up with us, and good times were had, up until the part when Tom had to carry me out of the bar. Everybody wanted to buy the birthday girl a drink. Oops.

So I spent most of Saturday recovering from Friday night. Tom made me get up to go eat at like, 1 and that helped quite a bit. I sat around all day watching movies and messing around on the internet and sleeping and cursing my liver. Then I picked Tom up from work and we sat around watching more movies together because my liver threatened to explode if I even thought about stepping foot into a bar. I feel like I did more than that, but I don’t think that I did.

So then Sunday, my actual birthday-day, we went mini-golfing and good times were had there. We are pathetically bad at mini golf haha. So by good times, I mean we spent a lot of time laughing at each other and cursing up a storm :D I randomly got a hole-in-one though, it was rad! Apparently there is no prize for making the ball into the bowl in the lake on the last hole, as we found out after Lee made it. We were hoping for a nacho sombrero, but the only prize is self-satisfaction. “Well damn, if I wanted that I would have used your bathroom for a few minutes!” hahaha. It was a blast. Anyway, then we all headed over to Lee and Kristen’s house and Kristen made us homemade nachos and they were omg so awesome! Oh and somewhere in there I was on Mr Fab’s radio show and it was a spectacular failure haha :D It was fun, even if we have no common ground and my reputation on the internet is now ruined because everybody knows thinks I hang out in a crackhouse. Anyway after that it was off barhopping. We went to Ringo’s to hang out with my piercer buddy and his girlfriend and another friend of theirs. Then we went to Friends to do karaoke, but we forgot it was Sunday and we got there after last call, but the guy was cool and gave us each a drink cause it was my birthday and I got to sign a dollar bill and they stuck it on the wall, but we got no karaoke. So we stopped at someone’s house but didn’t stick around long cause we didn’t like the crowd, so then it was sleep time, woo.

I took today off from work and spent the day with Tom. We were planning on going to drive some super fast go-kart type things but it looked like rain so we went and watched Ratatouille instead, which was adorable for those who have not seen it. When we got out of the movie, yeah, it was raining. We got pretty wet walking back to the car. So then that meant that his buddy that was gonna work on his van didn’t come, which was the whole reason we didn’t go to the coast today like I had originally wanted to do. Meh, the weather probably would have been worse there anyway. Then we got all dressed up and went to dinner at the Portland City Grill which was phenomenal. The view was amazing, the food was amazing, and the company wasn’t so shabby either

And now, I must sleep, for work tomorrow will be a nightmare. I’ve seen what bad condition my office is in after I leave for a few hours, a whole day of not being there is scary. Meep!

Coming At You Live!

So, for those of you that haven’t heard, this Sunday I will be co-host on Pointless Drivel LIVE! That’s right. I will be co-hosting Mr Fab’s radio show, on my 22nd birthday. Will I be drunk? ….. probably. I mean, hello, it’s my birthday! Sheesh.

Anyway, it will be awesome, so make sure to clear the schedule, and tune in, this Sunday, 4pm pacific time.

Oh Vista, How I Hate Thee

So, I recently bought a new computer, and like the goober that I am, I didn’t notice that I had the option of having XP installed on it. So, I got a computer with Windows Vista. Now, let me say, Vista is very pretty. Very.

However.

My webcam is not compatible with it. Firefox crashes if I have too many tabs open. iTunes won’t run on it (it worked for about an hour, and crashed, and I haven’t been able to get it open since then). If I turn off User Access Control (which is the most ANNOYING thing on fricken earth, it asks if it’s ok to run something every single time I open a program that it doesn’t like), my software for syncing my cell phone doesn’t work. You have to reboot to turn that feature on and off by the way. It’s insanely slow. My music skips every time I open a full sized photo from my camera. And so on and so forth

I am, to say the least, annoyed.

Blogathon 2007

On July 28th, I will begin mo-blogging at 6am for 24 hours to raise money for the Oregon Food Bank. This year, I will be going around Portland showing places to go and things to do here. Ok, well, I might not be out of the house yet at 6am, but you get the idea. I’m pretty new here, and I absolutely love it, so I wanted to do something local this time around.

If you pledge $25 or more, you can give me a place to go. If you pledge $50 or more, I will include a permanent link to the site of your choice on my link page.
