Virtual Girls Night Out - How's Your Weather?


There's no way I'm going to complain about the light rain that continues to fall around Portland while our surrounding neighbors are dealing with high floods washing away their cars and flooding their homes.  And our neighbors to the North in Seattle are dealing with major ice storms cutting off their power. I like having electricity and being able to drive/walk when I need to, no ice thank you very much.  For those of you that are a bit stranded in your house let's get this Virtual Girls Night Out going!

*The VGNO is for those who want to party "virtually" with other bloggers. Get on your fuzzy slippers, make yourself a cocktail, and have fun!  Leave a comment to let us know you've stopped by.  Happy VGNO!*

Time For Some Tunes! 

Gotye "Somebody That I Used To Know"


Hey. That guys nekkid!  Nice paint job.


Time For A Cocktail!

(This is for a group ;-> )
Paint Can 
1 fifth vodka
2 liters Squirt® citrus soda
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
Directions:
~Go to your local paint store and purchase a brand new paint can. Fill the paint can completely with ice.
~Add the vodka, the frozen limeade & the frozen lemonade (do not mix these with water). Finish filling the paint can with Squirt.
~Place the lid on the paint can very tightly. Wrap a towel around the paint can and shake the can vigorously. Keep shaking the paint can until the towel sticks to it (caused by frost). Open the can and pass it around. You drink it directly out of the paint can.

Um... I think this is pretty silly.   But hey, maybe paint cans will be all the rage this year ;->

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
