Because Kelly tagged me and I feel special.
And away we go.....

what is your current obsession?
Bubble Baths!! Why do we have to be in a water shortage!!

what is your weirdest obsesson?
Chipotle. Chicken burrito, no beans, double the rice, sour cream and cheese.

Starbucks or Peet's?
Starbucks Strawberry water!!

what's for dinner?
Hamburger Helper!! I'm being lazy tonight. But those things are SO DARN good.

what would you eat for your last meal?
Cinnamon & sugar oatmeal with flaxseed. Mmm. I've been getting lectures about cholesterol running in the family by my mother.

what was the last thing you bought?
Costco. And Groceries too, Kel Kel. And Costco is evil.

what are you listening to right now?
Rush Hour 2 on youTube.

what is your favorite ice cream flavor?
flavorS....with an "s". Chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies and cream, Breyers Vanilla Bean (in a black container box and a picture of vanilla bean ice cream with little black specks). I think we might have some in the freezer at home. Damn dino bag. Now I have to wait till that passes before I consume any. Damn.

what do you think of the person(s) who tagged you?
The coolest ice-cream pijun a girl could know. I know. I'm lucky.

if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Outer space.

which language do you want to learn?
Vietnamese, for now. I've always wondered what those Vietnamese ladies are saying when they are doing my nails.

what's your favorite quote (for now)?
Everybody poops. Heee. I don't know.

what is your favorite colour?
Gray too for me. I bought 4 dark gray shirts from TJ Maxx and the register person was kind enough to point that out. In my defense, all the shirts were different styles.

what is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
My gray sweater, which I am ashamed to admit, I have 2 of. Wish I had one of those right now. I'm freezing my tooshie off. The only thing that's keeping me warm is the bright yellow fleece blanket that I've turned into a poncho by clipping 2 binder clips to hold it together. I'm ghetto.

what is your dream job?
If I had a gazillion dollars, I'd open up my own HUGE-ASS animal shelter and hire Caesar Millan to help me run it. Guess I'll have to settle for Josh for now. He's had one success named JoJo who can go off leash now with him. Besides, he's free.

what is your worst habit?
Just one? I leave cups by my bed. We've been completely out of cups before because they're all on my bedside table. Oops?

if you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
Benihana's. I have a craving for their steak and fried rice and scallops and shrimp and salad and miso soup. Mmmmm...

do you admire any one's style?
Kel Kel puts together the cutest outfits. Or anyone else who's not scared to venture outside of their comfort zone when it comes to style.

describe your personal style?

what are you going to do after this?
Jessica and I are going to go buy lunch.

what are your favourite movies?
Right now, they are......Shall We Dance, Pretty Woman, Wedding Planner, No Reservations, Where the Heart Is, A Walk to Remember....and the list goes on and on and on. What can I say? I'm a bit of a movie whore.

what is your favorite fruit?
Ripe cantaloupes, watermelons, peaches, nectarines, plums, & seedless grapes (i hate having to stop, roll my tongue around to locate the seed, and then muster up all this energy and spit).

what inspires you?
Selfless people. Would I do the same thing if I were in their position? Run back into the burning building to save people? Would I jump into the raging waters and pull this person out? I'd hope so, but you never really know.

your favorite book?
Where the Heart Is. I've read this a gazillion times. But most recently, *ahem*...Twilight Saga. I can't remember the last time I stayed up till 3 in the morning reading a book. Only to wake up early the next morning to finish reading.

do you collect something?
money for my savings account! does that count?

what is your favorite smell?
Pearberry or something equally fruity. And Josh has a natural scent that is very comforting to me. DB calls it B.O. though. Musty. ;)

what are you most proud of?
Standing up to my mom and mustering up the courage to move out of my parents' house (and into my Grandma's). I actually walked the talk!

what are 5 beauty products you couldn't live without?
I can name 2. CHAPSTICK and LOTION. I have chapstick in almost every room of the house (I'm lazy, ok? =D). I hate chapped lips and hands. I've been desperate enough to put lotion on my lips and chapstick on my hands.

cats or dogs?
both! Both! BOTH! I've always been a dog person, but Lily cat has changed me forever. You can call me "Crazy Dog and Cat Lady".

Ok. That was kinda fun. =)

Now that I know how to greet people in Spanish, I can now venture off to Barcelona like Kel Kel. Wonder how that taxi ride would go. Or actually...wonder where I would end up with just "hola".

Ok. I got it. I've been replaced. Is it really necessary to continue rubbing salt on the wound?

My Aunty told me to build a bridge and get over it cause that's what she did. Funny, she's going through exactly what I'm going through and just hearing "OMG! I know exactly you're talking about!" on my way home tonight, made me feel less alone. I guess it's true when they say misery loves company. I am very much looking forward to our dinner next Wednesday. I love my Aunty.

And look at who decided to keep my company right now...

Love is...

when your boyfriend traps his fart in the closet, knowing you're going to walk in 2 minutes later.

Someone wrote this on their blog...I couldn't have put it any better in my head.

My mom asked me why I'm writing these letters when I haven't seen/spoken to some of these individuals for years. I know it might be hard to understand but even though some of these people didn't make it to my future, they were critical to my life at some point. I have learned a great deal about being a friend and a loving human being from each of them and even though we may not be a part of each other's lives now, there's never a bad time to apologize or say "thank you."

That is something that I need to take care of. NOW.
Thank you to this person for writing that.

You know who you are. =)

We had a bbq yesterday with a bone-in chicken.

Josh says, "It's not burnt. It's OVERCOOKED."

My patience is being tested. Ahh...sweet memories of teaching 20 kindergarteners.

But this time, it's not a bunch of 6 year olds. It's not even a 6 year old. She's 29 and new...someone that I have to train at work, which I've done many times before. I've made mistakes before in training...but I learned. I explained all the documents inside a patient chart. Superbills, patient information sheet, Insurance verification, Insurance card copies...etc etc etc. So even though this girl is completely new, I was confident that she would get the hang of it in no time. I know how confusing things are in the beginning, so extra patience. Check.

Until it's crunch time to close the month. Don't want to rush her, so I tell her, "I made a log of all the superbills that have not been posted. Fax those to me and I will post them for you. If it says "Change Insurance" on the supebrill, fax me the Insurance card copies so I can change it. If it says blood on the superbill, fax me the blood requisition form."

Simple, right?

NO. All I got was the superbill. So I call her and very patiently explain to her why I need those documents. Please remember to read the memo on the bottom of every superbill to check for those 2 things.

I make another log. After posting what you have sent me, these are the ones that I need insurance card copies or blood requisition forms.

I get the fax. They are all superbills. AGAIN.
I call her and let her know again. Make her another log, this time, with a key on the bottom as follows:


I think you know how it ends. Yes, I still received some with only superbills.

I don't know how much simpler I can make it.

Every rose has it's thorn...

I watched The Bachelor last night. For Jason. He had his heart broken by DeAnna from a previous season of The Bachelorette. He's a single dad...sweet and sincere. A great match, in my opinion, with Melissa, one of the two finalist fighting for his heart.

And he chose her. Offered to her the final rose. He proposed. She said yes with a squeal.

A happy ending. Just what I needed to see to remind me that there are happily ever afters. But I wrong. He dumped her on the after show of the final rose ceremony. He then proceeded to ask Molly for a second chance, the other girl. All on national television.

Jason can be dumped back into the barrel. He isn't any different from the rest of them.

(I know, I know. It's just a TV show with producers. But still. I was rooting for him since The Bachelorette and to find out he's just like the rest of them is a huge let-down.)

I'm singing Daydream Believer and Jessica is howling like a dog.

A girl can take a hint.
