About Me

It’s just little ol’ me living in Georgia! Not much to say about myself except as you can see I’m a big fan of England. Their football team is my favorite. I love to travel and that country is definitely on my favorites list. Outside of travel, I love music, art, cool air, wine, and an array of random things.

Out of the country [December 14, 2007 @ 3:01pm]
I have been gone for two weeks. I went out of this country to a far off place..or places rather. First it was Rome, Italy. It is pretty much the center of hell and Termini train station is it's heart. I have a theory that the Roman ruins fell due to the native asses that live there. I think it's just city life though and all cities have their major asses. I guess it didn't help that I was also in the "bad" part of town, south of Termini. I did get lost a couple of times, but all-in-all I'm pretty good with directions and it's the only city I did get lost in. I guess it's pretty big though. Anyway, the ruins were nice, but I think I spent more days there than I needed too. I actually meant to buy bottles of wine and just forgot I guess. I don't know how that's possible, but hey. It's funny how in Rome they were all bundled up like they were expecting a blizzard. Yet they were all still styling in their heels. Not practical, but they looked good. Let's see, I did take a day trip to Florence while I was there. It was a nice sunny day and you could see the city from the top of some hill.

The train to Vienna was an overnight train that consisted of a crazy cramped bed cabin. It was nicer than the bed on the train I slept in a few years ago from Munich to Amsterdam. I saw snow on the way, but there was no snow in Vienna. Actually, it wasn't nearly as cold as I thought it would be. That city is really pretty. It's pretty small too. I think I saw everything in a couple of days. I love German. I really need to learn how to speak it. The food in Austria and Germany is pretty awesome. I love potato dumplings and saurkraut...the pork was good too. There was a day trip to Budapest that I did. I'm so glad that I did because it is a gorgeous city (well two cities Buda and Pest). I have to go again. Perhaps when I try to go to Bratislava, Slovakia (maybe one day) then I can go. Our bus driver drove us around smaller towns in Hungary along the way. That's always fun.

If you miss the train to Prague from Vienna, it's not fun to wait in the cold for 3 hours with luggage. It's even worse when you arrive at a train station other than the one you are expecting a little before midnight. It's even worse when a swat team meets you off the train with machine guns and full body armor. They were scattered about the entire terminal. Now, if you have no Czech crowns and you need a metro tickets, you have to go the bankomat (ATM). This is not a fun experience when there are gambling addicts (see any Prague guidebook) playing slots and stuff because that's the only business there that late as the metro closes down at midnight. So, when you do get the money and you realize that there are no English translations anywhere like other European train stations you start to panic...or I do. A very nice lady helped me get to the hotel. It's still a bit scary with your luggage and locals staring at you. I then realized the hotel was not in the city center, but rather the outskirts. That's a little more intimidating. However, all ended well. Prague is GORGEOUS. I think I'd really like to go back in Spring or Fall. I love the food and beer is cheap and tasty. I think it's a fabulous country. The people I did meet all seemed really awesome.

Now I'm planning more trips:
1) The Scandinavian tour - Oslo, Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Stockholm
2) More Eastern Europe - Bratislava, Bucarest, perhaps Vitus (spell - Lithiuana)
3) Russia (St. Petersburg)
4) Asia continued - Hong Kong, Tokyo, Dubai, maybe Shanghi
4) Back to revisit the West - London (love), Paris (icky, but I was only there 1 day), and Madrid
5) More stuff - Barcelona, Lisbon, Zurich
6) Back to Germany - Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Fussen, Nuremburg (other citys I've never been too) - maybe Den Haggue again

Oh so many places I want to go....

Dallas vs. Atlanta [September 04, 2007 @ 2:40am]
I always get lost in Dallas.  Seriously, there are about 1000 roads.  I always seem to end up on a toll road that costs $1.50 per pass (there always seem to be more than one...perhpas I'm actually going in a circle).  I'm frantically scraping through the car and my purse for change.  Fun.  The traffic is significantly less though. Probably because everyone takes back roads everywhere anyway.  This is probably due to the insane toll fee.  Whatever.

What I do love about Dallas is the logic of the airport.  Pretty simple.  You walk off the plane, out of the circular door, pick up your luggage, and walk out side.  From the plane to outside is about 3 min if that.  The only hold up is waiting for luggage which doesn't take too long as it's all right on the other side of the glass.  Of course, once you have your luggage, there is a convient parking area in front of  the terminal so that people can retreive passengers easier.  It has about 50 spaces per each entrance and it's never full.  Hence, there is never a heavy flow of traffic right outside of the entrance.  Atlanta has a horrible set up (pretty sad to be one of the busiest airports anywhere).  You get off a plane, walk 10 miles to get to an escalator which takes you down to the pit, then ride a train for another 10 miles.  Then you go up another escalator which looks about 5 miles long only to find there are only two places you can go to get your luggage, north terminal or south terminal.  So you find the terminal (determined by the airline you used) and then look on a massive message board (that displays about 200 flights...no joke) to find which of the 800 carosels on that side your luggages will come to.  Of course there are 25 other flights using the same carosel of course.  Once you get to the carosel, you wait 45 min (sometimes longer) for your bags to come.  By the time they do, you've already convinced yourself that they've lost your luggage.  Then you go outside and wait for your ride who has already circled around 42 times waiting for you.  Each time, he/she has navigated what seems like traffic on the downtown connector at 5:30 on a work day.  You have precisely two seconds to get into the car before the Atlanta PD start honking uncontrollably for you to move the fuck on. I'm afraid that if you stayed for about 2 min more, they might hold you at gunpoint.  Whatever, it's crazy. 

watch it... [July 18, 2006 @ 4:25pm]

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

bye bye lions... [July 01, 2006 @ 1:24pm]
Today we say good-bye to the three lions...England! It was such a brutal game. It was very physical and there were people getting stepped on, head butted, and shoved to high hell. It went into overtime which also ended in a tie. Then there was the pental kick shoot out. There's no worse way to win a game. Just a shooter and the goalie. I couldn't watch it. I hate those things. Well, England lost 1 PK to 3. :( :( :( So sad. They were crying. I had tears. I felt so bad. Rooney was sent off for stepping on some guy's balls so England was playing 10 on their side for a lot of the game.

Oh well, England gave a good fight and we'll see what happens in four years. I do believe this is Beckham's last World Cup, but he's a good player and I'll always love him. Rooney, Gerard, Lampard, Rio, and Cole are still young so I can't wait to watch again in 2010.

Next year it's the women's tournament. No Mia Hamm...aye...but I guess I'm still a US fan for the women's side.

I ♥ you England!

21 great ideas... [June 13, 2006 @ 5:09pm]
ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.

FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

I don't know why I haven't posted this sooner...I love it!

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.

Oh this fucking sucks... [December 17, 2005 @ 12:12am]
These crutches are inhibiting my social life. Arg! I get to miss all the fun because I'm confined to a damn couch with my knee propped up. The good news is that it's feeling much better so, hopefully, I'll be off these damn things in a few days. Good thing too because my arms hurt, my hands have blisters, and my armpits have bruises. :( Okay...getting off the pity pot now. I'm just a little sad. Erin called and told me where people may or may not be going. Damn it! I want to go too!!!

Knee Injury Day [December 13, 2005 @ 6:38pm]
I have had a lot of time to sit on the couch and watch movies, draw, play on the Internet, and read. I'm over it. I want to get in my car and drive away...oh wait, even if I could my fucking car is at Erin's house. I really want the CDs that are in it. Oh well, I'll get it soon. Anyway, let's recap the day. :)

I called back a potential job offer and talked to the man for about 20 min and he offered me an interview on Friday. Shit! I don't know where my interview clothes are (remember a lot of my shit is still in boxes..I don't want to get to comfortable here) and I only have black heels. I can't wear heels w/ the knee injury so I need to shop. I hope I can be well enough to put some pressure on my right leg for my interview. I'm not sure they'd be thrilled about hiring with an injury. I really want this job.

I then took a bath...that's always interesting to get in and out of the tub. Good thing I've done this before and now have trade secrets for dealing with the battle.

I drew some horses and dragons...yeah odd combo, but whatever, I was bored. I drew flowers and faeries yesterday so I mean really. I then read. Since yesterday I have finished season 1 of Desparate Housewives which I thought would suck, but now I love it. I completed season 2 up to the last episode. I have watched the following movies: Saved, Garden State, Can't Buy Me Love, Underworld, Rat Race, Tomb Raider, Sweet Home Alabama, and A Home At the End of the World. Nice right.

Tomorrow is another day. :)

[May 05, 2005 @ 12:03am]
My lj is now friends locked. My ex-boyfriend told my mother everything about my life. My ex is my ex because we don't get along at all. I can't believe it has come to this. My mother found out I had a girlfriend and for obvious reasons she doesn't like it. My ex went beserk and told my entire family that I was a lesbian which I'm not. I'm bi and have been for a good long while. I never told them for obvious reasons...hum like this one. Anyway, he gave out my lj address so now my mom can read my entire life's shit. Nice, I can't believe that. My parents are now worried about me. That's just great. I don't care...I can stand on my own two damn feet and I really don't need anyone...I don't trust anyone anyway...never have (except my dad) and never will.....So...flist you can still read, the rest can just wonder. :)

LWord Season 2...Lovin' It So Far [March 21, 2005 @ 2:58pm]
Okay, so can I just say wow? Dana and Alice had some seriously hot action going on and the whole time I just wanted the Tonya bitch to walk in on that. I am loving Alice more and more. “Dana, you’re ass looks really good.” And then she reaches out and touches it!!!! Classic! Jess can you do an icon of them in the chair? J I am really angry that Jenny had to go and cut her hair. I don’t like her, but why did she have to do that? Oh wait, I forgot! You’re only a lesbian if you have short hair. Doh! :) Whatever…I’m glad she and Shane are in a house together. That will make for some interesting storylines. I hope that Mark guy gets the hell beat out of him. I am still feeling bad for both Shane and Carmen. They both like each other. Shane is scared to get to close and Carmen doesn’t really understand. I do foresee great things in the future with them though. And Tina needs to finally drop Bette’s sorry butt. Okay, in the beginning I felt a little (just a smidge) bad for Bette, but now I don’t. AT the first sign that things are going okay she bitches and freaks out. I couldn’t live like that at all. Arg! Tina, girl, tell her to suck a big fatty! Let’s see. That Helena Peabody really is shady. I don’t like her either. Can Gabby come back? I just want to look at her for a second. Apparently, IRL, she gets around too. :) Loving that! Go Gwenny!

The Toronto half... [March 17, 2005 @ 12:17am]
Okay so I guess it's time to write about the Toronto portion of the trip. Hee hee...here we go...

Day one...We arrive in Toronto after being routed and rerouted...okay, mostly it was Jami, but I was there. :) We were tired and we wanted to find our hotel and we weren't sure at all where it would be. We had to find our car...that was a mini adventure in itself. We had to find the rental car place, find the rental place outside (yes we had to go again to another place), find the car in a row full of cars, and then get past the guard to let us out. Well I couldn't find the actual contract. I had to get out search everything and eventually back up to let everyone else out. Jami walked to where our car was and found that it fell out. Well, then I got to drive in the snow for the first time. It wasn't bad really, but we didn't know where we were going and we really didn't know how fast 100kmph was either, but Jami was quick to notice the metric system on the speedometer too. Yeah Jami! Well, we got directions to the hotel, but whatever, we still had no clue. Actually that went okay...I only missed it by one exit, but I was able to backtrack my way back to the hotel. So we get in and get out and then sleep.

Toronto - Day 2

Okay we have no idea where we're going, but we have a mission...find anything related to QAF...we'll worry about touring the city later. We mapped out a route to Church St. and we were on our way. We got out, got coffee, and decided to walk. We found some good QAF landmarks, but I was freezing..hey I live in Atlanta so I am not used to this climate. I ran into some random store and bought a hat, gloves, and a scarf. Then we decide to go into a sex shop...I know, how random. We go in and I was looking as this enormous red butt plug. I turned around and said, "Ouch! My ass hurts!" This male voice responds that I'm in the wrong section. :) I turn around and there's this gorgeous guy. Jami and I start talking to him about these huge anal beads and he seems to really know his toys. Jami and I start talking about being around Toronto for QAF and he proceeds to tell us that he was an extra when Babylon blows up....Ooops...Spoiler, but no more...he then gives us directions to all these places to see more QAF goodies. We were in love and now I'm pissed that I have no picture. We leave and go to the places...nice...we eat at a Mexican restaurant which was all right, but nothing great. We were hungry and on a strict budget. We walked around some more and went shopping. I went into a CD store to buy great Canadian music that I can't seem to find in the US....I was so excited to see Controller Controller on the shelf. Too bad I had already bought it, but I picked up another Stars CD. I should have gotten the other Broken Social Scene CD, but I didn't because I'm broke. Jami ended up being sick so we went back to the hotel around 8PM so she could sleep off her fever. Poor Jammers!

...to be continued...

I hate flying... [March 10, 2005 @ 9:41pm]
[ mood | Lovin' it! ]

Actually, I love flying, but we had sort of a disaterous time last night serious. An agent calls from American Airlines at 4:30 to tell me my flight was cancelled due to winds from the East, but that he has booked me on the 7pm to Toronto. Nice right. Well, that's just dandy except now I have to scramble to get my shit together and get a car to take me to LaGuardia...oh wait...what about Jami? I called her at work..yes, she was still there, to tell her what happened and she tells me that no one has called her yet. She decides to call the airline and they say that my new flight is all booked up so they put her on at 7PM out of JFK which is further away. She still has to get home and get her stuff together. I get to the airport and stand in a line for an hour and then get my flight. I get a call from Jami that it's been changed to LaGuardia so she's on her way. I see her in the back of the line and her flight is supposed to leave at 7pm. Well, I go to the gate and she calls again. She is only a few gates away, but her flight has been delayed. The lady at the counter says there's plenty of room on the flight (and there was...everyone could have had a row to themselves). So why did they say it was booked to begin with? Fucking eh man. Well, she comes down and gets a flight change to my flight. Nice right. Her baggage is still on another plane so we figure that we'll be waiting forever to get it in Toronto. No...we get here and stand in a customs line for about an hour. Lovely. Finally, we get out and find our luggage. Now, the next order of business...the car! I get the car, but get slammed with tax (gotta love Canada) and finally get the car. But first I have to go to another window. I get there and get the keys. It took us a second, but we found the car. As I'm leaving the lot, this lady needs my driver's license and contract for the car. I found my driver's license right away. The contract, however, was nowhere to be found. So I had to back up because I'm holding up traffic. After a lengthy search of the car, Jami walks to where we got it and finds that I dropped it on the ground. Lovely! Hee hee...now finding the hotel. Have you ever driven in snow? Well, not me. It was coming down and the roads were all white. WTF? I think I have the directions down, but I missed my exit and had to drive the street way. I only made a couple of wrong turns before I found it. Finally, safe in the hotel. All is good now...I'll write more about today later. I had to get directions today so I figured I'd document the follies of our travels. :) LOVIN' IT!

Might I say that Canadians are the nicest bunch of people ever!

More fun in NYC!!! [March 09, 2005 @ 4:15pm]
[ mood | Damn flights... ]

Well, last night we went downtown to Times Square and ate some Chinese food. I adore these pork bun things that I kept ordering while we were waiting for Jami's friend. Delicious little things they were. I got my NY cheesecake so I was very happy! I love cheesecake.

Today I while Jami and her roommates were gone, I went to Soho. It's a nice little train ride downtown. It has tons of shopping...of course nothing I can personally afford, but that's all good. I found this lovely art store. Rows and rows of pastels, paints, pens, markers, pencils, and sketchpads...it was heaven. It's very close to NYU so there were lots of art students there. I bought some stuff becuase I can't resist. Because of that spending, I had to put off buying this lovely pair of shoes around the corner from there. All good though, need money in Toronto.

Speaking of...just got a call and they cancelled my flight so I have to take an earlier one. Upset since Jami was supposed to be on that one. Now we have to figure out what to do. Ouch. Very upset.

Well, more later from Canada.

PS...my icon is Carmen from the LWord...so in love. :)


My hooha is all a flutter... [March 08, 2005 @ 3:38pm]
[ mood | Good times ]

Jami and her family here are wonderful hosts...I am having a fabu time...this is turning into a travel journal for the rest of the week. Seriously, up to the minute, play-by-play action. Well, let's see...I adore SUSHI....and we ate some seriously good stuff last night. I have no idea where we were and I couldn't take you there again, but it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Then we went to a coffeeshop in Chelsea. I have noticed that a lot of places in NYC have good atmosphere. I am loving that. Good vibes from the peoples around me. I got a Chai Latte that was way too hot until I put some ice in it...then it was yummy. We had a nice conversation and proceeded to freak the guy out next to us with some of our vulgar topics involving a horse :)....Nah...really don't think he was scared...he was probably entertained...Jami and her family (Bobby and Bradley) are wonderfully entertaining. I ♥ them! Then we went to a movie called Bride and Prejudice which was hilarious....we are talking I almost peed my pants. I had never heard of it, but loved it. It's a romantic-comedy musical. I'll own it when I can buy it one day. Then we went home. Very nice relaxing evening. I am seriously loving this place...I'm sure that is 99.9% due to the wonderful people that are hosting me. I can't say enough about them seriously. Muah Jamikin!!!!
