Snow Day!

Hit by a blizzard I am stuck at home with nothing better to do then pack. Well, pack and mess around online and download music. Hard core procrastinator til the day I die. I don't think it has stopped snowing since I woke up this morning. There is even a nice little snowdrift right outside of my window. I needed a day like today to chill. I love having excuses to lock up in my jammers all day.

Go CU!

This has been a long season for the Buffs. Only two wins this year made it a little disheartening, but today they did put up a great effort. They looked like a different team then they did back in September and I am proud to be a Buff! Now if only Nebraska could have put on a hold on their show-off plays we might have had a chance to keep the score a little closer but what can ya do? Next year boys!!

Happy Holidays!!

My mom and I decided to go out to a couple stores this morning to hit up some sales. We got to Target at about 8 am and the one thing that I had wanted to buy was already sold out. I was a little bummed, but I was not about to get up all hella early for an ipod dock clock radio. And seriously, in all honesty I did not expect them to all be gone by 8 when the store opened at 6. How nieve was I? I heard one girl say she had gotten up at 4:30 in the morning! I didn't find a lot of gifts for people but I did manage to score the first season of The Office for 9 bucks at Wally World. I know, not really the holiday spirit buying gifts for myself but what can I say...

Do Something New

I love the website It's amazing! It's all about entreprenual ideas and buisnesses that people are coming up with. I had some down time today and browsed for a while. It made me start thinking more creativly. I hope to be able to own my own buisness someday and this site makes me think that it really is possible! Check it out and enjoy!

Free to be me

I absolutly LOVE Nike Free shoes. I love to go running and I have never put on a pair of shoes that make it easier and more enjoyable to run forever. It amazes me that Nike hasn't spent more time and money to advertise these shoes. I don't think I have ever even seen a real advertisment for them. This made me start thinking. We are bombarded by ads for shoes designed/sponsored by athletic starts (i.e. Jordans - need I say more?). And those shoes do nothing special for your feet. It's all image. But image sells. It just seems wrong to me that a company would put more time, money and effort into shoes that are all about image than performance, espially a company that prides itself as being an athletic footwear and apparel super giant. Stay away from the Jordan's and Carmello's of the world and stay true to what the brand was built on.

Destroyed - What happens when a cat is on a diet

Originally uploaded by pickyv83.
So, a couple weeks ago I took my cat to the vet. I was told there is a new view as to how cats should eat....only wet food and 2-3 ounces of it a day. Kacee has not taken to this very well. I take that back, she LOVES the wet food but she acts like she is constantly starving. Case in point, I was gone for the day on Sunday and came home to find all her treat bags on the floor. All except one that was missing. The next day I came home from work and found it smack in the middle of the hallway totally torn up with every single treat gone. I'm not sure if this is a sign that she was bored or if I should feed her more...

I should have paid more attention in weather class...

Maybe it's not so much that I don't understand weather as that I don't understand Colorado weather. It's so crazy. One day its 70 degrees, the next it's snowing. No wonder I got a cold the day before my birhtday. Nothing like having the sniffles when you're trying to head out to the bars to celebrate. And the best part was that I got better the day after. Trying to rain on my parade...

New additions to my fam!

Originally uploaded by pickyv83.

I just wanted to say how excited I am for my brother who just took in two stray, adorable, hyper kittens named Rupert and Starbuck!! I'm sure he will be busy running after those two...As much as I want Kacee to have a playmate during the day when I'm at work, I am fighting the old cat lady doom that may very well be my future!


I admit, I do sometimes think that animals dressed up in costumes is cute. Everyone likes a little bling, why not let your pet enjoy it, too? But I think it's maybe going a little too far with iPod costumes. I'm not kidding. There are actual websites out there that make it possible for your iPod to enter the costume contest right along with you! Who came up with this idea?

Jitter Bug

I can not remember a time when I was completly content with how my life was. I am always looking for something new. Something to do, something to entertain me, something to make me feel challanged. It's like I'm never completly whole. I am constantly searching for the thing that will complete me. Is there such a thing? Is there a point where you stop feeling the need or desire to change yourself? Is life really just this chase and thats what keeps us motivated to wake up every morning? I'm not sure if other people feel this way or not. Maybe I am just a little (or a lot) screwed up. Maybe I am just not happy with myself and until I am I will keep looking and reaching for the next big thing. Or maybe I am just a restless person who needs constant stimulation. Maybe I get bored to easily. How much of this feeling is me, and how much of it is my generation? I've heard that my generation will switch jobs and careers close to 7 times in their life. Our grandparents did the same job most of their adult lives. What has changed to cause this? I don't do well with options. I can't make a decision to save my life. All of my big decisions that I have made so far in life have been made on accident. I think it's because I am afraid to lock myself into something and not be able to go back. But that's all part of life, too. It's crazy to think that all the decisions we make have an impact on our lives. I mean, think about it. Even the decision of what to have for dinner, which seems to simple and pointless could be the one decision that results in you getting food poisoning or an allergic reaction. Life itself is a challange. I think maybe I will just hide in my bed under the covers...KIDDING! Bring it!

Bad News Bears

So, I definatly have a case of the Mondays. I'm sitting in my office today gettin er done, and find out that my PARKED car has been hit by a runaway truck. Turns out the concrete workers outside have a truck with a faulty clutch or something and the truck rolls down the hill, over the median with all the flowers in it and then smashes into my car. I have really bad luck with cars. This is the second one I have owned and it is the second one to be hit. No more black cars for this chick. 3 strikes and you're out, and I don't want to go for number 3.

Scaredy Cat

Originally uploaded by pickyv83.

Ok, so this might seem really weird, but I am afraid of my cat. She is young and full of energy, which means she does not let me sit her down to trim her claws. She won't have it. She scquirms and hisses and waves her sharp terror claws around in the air, barely missing me face. Last night I tried before bed and I think she might have been playing, but she made a leap at me. Freaked me out. I honestly thought of hiding under the covers incase she decided in the middle of the night it might be fun to attack me. I admit, I have an overactive imagination. Atleast I woke up in one piece. Today, she's back to her old self, and I did manage to get ONE nail trimmed. Wish me luck with the others.

Hi everybody! So, this is my first blog EVER. Kind of fun to think you can write about anything you want. Hope someone out there likes to read my ramblings! I'm getting really psyched about snowboarding this winter. It's already snowing in the mountains. WATCH OUT!
