1, 2, 3, 4, 5....6?

Hello world.  Have you noticed how wonderful you are lately? Spring is in the air, hit 75 today, I broke out the shorts and drove with the window down today.  Whoever said that life is made up of a bunch of random sequences that we sow together with our own dance was right. Today was the perfect example. You don't know what you'll face when you wake up, but it's up to us to how we dance with it.

Anywho, now to the real reason I'm doing this. The 25.  Well I haven't posted in almost 3 months...sorry! but I've been a busy boy and have a few things to knock off the list.

#1. I'm so glad this is my number one. I PEED IN AN PORT-A-POTTY IN JANUARY!!! This sounds so childish, but if you know me, this is something up my alley...totally out of the norm! Sweeny's (one of my favorite watering holes) was remodeling their men's bathroom (which is super class and nice now), so the gents had to use port-a-potties that were out on the porch...IN MN JANUARY!! It was awesome. It had a personal heater inside and everything. Totally made my day!

#2. As many of you know, I LOVE food! If you don't know it, just look at my belly! haha! But seriously, I love to eat, cook and watch Food Network (I MISS YOU CHANNEL 55!!!). A dream of mine has always been to go to culinary school, open a small bakery/wine bar that I would run as a non-profit, because my fabuously rich husband would support me. haha.  Well I sort of got to live my dream of running a restaurant in February.  The place I currently manage was put into mine and a co-worker's hands when the bosses packed up and flew to France for 10 days.  Now everything was prepared ahead of time, but still to say that I ran the show with Andy was sweet.  Sadly though it killed my dream of ever owning a real restaurant.  Too much to get into but I don't have the personality for it.  Oh well...

#3. Jen's cousin, Rebecca, was in town after the bosses arrived back from France, so it was time to party. And did she bring the party. Not only did we stay up super late going to a soundbar in Minneapolis, but she had a sex toy lotions party at Jen's. It was so much fun. We had wine, she showed us everything from lotions to massagers to full on dildos! It was hilarious because I was the one who asked the most questions. It was a lot of fun and wasn't as awkward as I thought it would be.  And it was fun to talk about sex and sexuality in an open and safe setting.  We shouldn't repress or be embarrassed to talk about sex. I think it only makes it more taboo for kids growing up and they might get bad information that will lead to disastrous results that affect their lives. (P.S. I've decided that I get one "soap box" per blog, and I just used mine. Thank You)

#4 & 5. February was a busy month for me. At the end of it I was able to enjoy a little vacation and went with a group of guys to Las Vegas to celebrate my roommate Willie's bachelor party. This was a double one. 1) I've never been to Vegas and been to more than one casino in a day. There I went to over 5 in one day! Not really my thing to gamble, but it was great to take it all in and know that Elvis was King there and walked the same roads I did! :)  2) It was my first bachelor party, and perhaps only.  I don't have many close male friends where I would be apart of that, so it was awesome to experience with a great group of guys for Willie.  Plus, there's no other way I would have ever gone to Medieval Knights, a burlesque show and, yes, a strip club.  But by far my favorite was the burlesque show!!! It was more art and dance than smut! I loved it all! Besides the awkward moment in the airport on the way home, the trip was a total success and I think we made it all worth while for the bachelor!

#6*.  So number six is tricky.  I haven't actually accomplished it, but it's a big one. I've been talking about it non-stop and truly get excited when I talk about it! Next Friday, April 9th, I will be in New Brunswick, NJ interviewing for two internships that would secure my place in the master's program at Rutgers! I'm hoping and praying everything works out! I ask for your prayers. I'm nervous, anxious, excited and every other emotion. This is a big deal for me, so I hope it goes smoothly. I'll keep you updated.

Well that's all I have for now. Hope all is well in your lives. And remember if you need something to cheer up your day, just say, "Llama" three times. Not sure why, but it always puts a smile on my face.
later days
