love it!

i was running some errands today and discovered this store - Patina.

if you live in the twin cities check it out. or you can shop online - i've linked it above and on my sidebar under the 'like to shop?'. i could spend a lot more time in there than i already have and also a ton more money.....

I CAN BREATHE!!!!!!!!!

when chris went to pick up dinner last night he brought me some Afrin nasal spray - he said it had always worked for him. i was a bit hesitant - spraying something up a nose that wouldn't let oxygn pass hardly seemed like a solution. that and spraying anything up my nose has never really appealed to me. but i did it. it was really cold and uncomfortable at first but then....then.....HEAVEN! pure bliss. the gateways to heaven opened and i could breathe! it was - just like the cartoon* above says - more awesome than i could have ever imagined!

still feel like crap - but hey - i can breathe!

*i've posted a number of these cartoons and just found out there are from this lady :)

it had to be said again....

i know i posted this picture less than 8 hours ago but it has to be posted again - becuase it's doubley true. i can't breathe and it's pissing me off!

i went to target. i got tylenol rapid release gels - multi cold symptom. i got just a plain nasal decongestant. i took both. notta. nothing. zilch. zero. zip. jack shit. i would give anything - i would smile just to have a queasy stomach. jump for joy over my period woes. sing praises to the heavens above for this craptastic cough i have. just please please please please let me frickin' breathe through my nose!

i'm going to go take more meds. then i'm going to write both med companies and tell them what i think of their products and where they can shove them. hmph.

one more thing....

i've been meaning to post this

my friend carrie makes movies. this is the trailer for her latest film 'GOD ROCKS!'. it's is incredibly awesome and i highly suggest that you check it out :)

sorry for the short description but the trip to target has whooped me and i now must return to my post on the couch with my tissues.

that's right.....

i'm sick.

my week went as follows.......

MONDAY: i wake up to find the room spinning round and round. YAY VERTIGO! (sarcasm...) i throw up. the room continues to spin. i throw up some more. i sleep pretty much the whole day.
TUESDAY: more vertigo! YAY! begin to curse U2 - no one who has ever experienced vertigo would ever write a song about going there. sleep all day.
WEDNESDAY: i go to work. throat hurts. body aches all over - it hurts a lot. as evening falls my temperature rises. i go to bed with cold packs and frozen berry bags on my head.
THURSDAY: i am a moron and go to work. throat hurts. body aches even more - lower back especially. i am boiling hot. i'm freezing. my neck hurts. i can't breathe. i am boiling hot. i get my period - can it get any better??
FRIDAY: screw work. throat hurts. can't talk. can't breathe. can't move neck. lower back still hurts. i have insane cramps. i feel sick. sick. sick. sick.
TODAY: still can't breathe. can't talk. getting an extremely annoying and painful cough. oh..and more cramps. my eyes are also watering constantly. it's freakin' awesome! i should attempt to venture a target trip for a nasal decongestant......

yet another rant....

that whole theory of natural selection is completely bogus. technology and lawsuits have prevented nature from taking it's course. instead of dying off stupid people are breading en masse - creating more stupid people.

don't believe me? sit with me at my job for a day. sit with kari at her job for a day. stupid people are everywhere and something really needs to be done about it before i completely lose my mind. i've never had much patience and now i'm bordering on having none. hiding that look of disgust is getting harder and harder with each passing day.

Into the Wild

chris and i watched 'into the wild' this past weekend. chris had wanted to see it since it came out and while i thought it looked good it wasn't something i had to see. so going into it i didn't have any expectations. that said i don't want to talk the movie up here because sometimes that can ruin it - ya know what i mean - someone builds a movie up and then you see it expecting everything and beyond and end up going 'eh.' well, i don't want you to go 'eh.' so instead i'll just leave you with a few pictures.

for those of you who did not know (like me) the story is true. these pictures are of the real chris mccandless. below is a photo shortley before his death - the card he is holding reads "I have had a happy life and thank the Lord. Goodbye and may God bless all!"

one more thing - the soundtrack to this movie is fantastic (in my opinion). i bought it for chris's birthday back in december but didn't really listen to it until afterwards when you have all the visual and emotional ties to it. it's great. listen to it :)
