Non-Drowsy My Ass

Allegra, you are NOT non-drowsy.  Yes, I admit, I am a little bitch on medication.  Yes, I slept for 2 days straight on one Benedryl in college.  Yes, I get drugged up from two Advil.  But non-drowsy shouldn't mean "gets me effed up for 18 hours straight"

Just sayin'

Sometimes I Just Wanna Jam

... and by sometimes, I mean all the time.  And by jam, I mean listen/dance to terrible, beautiful, classic 90's rap/R&B music.  What of it?

I've always been known to play some terrific (read: annoying) jams at my bar on the weekends in order to entertain everyone (read: myself).  However, the last two weekends have really impressed even my (tacky) self.  Some hit jams include:
  • Back Dat Azz Up (including quite the booty pop on the side of the bar where only about half my customers could see)
  • Any and all Whitney Houston (duh)
  • And and all Jock Jams songs (did you know that it wasn't spelled Jock JamZ and it's actually an S?  S for stupid.  All kewl stuff should end with a Z)
  • Spice Up Your Life
  • Step in the Name of Love
  • Juicy and other Biggie jamz
  • The Whisper Song (which I forgot was quite vulgar and might have made 4 customers leave upon hearing the chorus.  Whooops)

As you can see, I have impeccable taste.  The phrase "you're too YOUNG for this jam!!" was uttered from my mouth many, many times.  And yes, I was the only sober person in the joint.  Your point?

Happy Friday, ya'll.

Today, before going over my list of things that fill my heart up, I'd like to reach out to my readers for a little personal prayer request ... my sorority sister was in a terrible car accident last week and needs all the prayers, good vibes, and positive thoughts she can get.  She is a feisty, sassy fighter, but prayers are appreciated.  I've been praying a lot for Jess, her doctor/nurses, and her family and friends who have been there for her throughout this difficult process.

Here's what fills my heart up this week:
  • Although I wish that Jess never had to go through this hard time, it has shown my sisters and me what an amazing blessing out sisterhood is ... ASA, I love you girls!
  • My kitty boys, of course
  • Had a little mini dinner party last night with some of my besties ... my belly was SO full and had a great time
  • Busy night at the bar tomorrow night, which hopefully means $$!
Have a great weekend, ya'll.  Keep those prayers/good thoughts coming for Jess!

Just a Little Note From Me to You

I NEED THIS KITTY!!!!!!!  Look at how handsome and fat he is!!! 

I want to cuddle on his tummy and fall asleep on it like a pillow. 

I want to hold him awkwardly like the lady in the video. 

I want to use him as a comparison to Carlton to prove that Carl really isn't "that" fat. 

I want to feed him with food and love and see how big he can get. 

I want to love him him all day and all night. 


Ok, CatLady, breathe.  And book a flight to Oregon today to rescue that ball of fat and fur.

Good morning kittens and happy Friday!

Here's what fills my heart up today:
  • Mustacho is currently passed the eff out on my lap (correction: I am cradling him like a baby and he is passed the eff out) ... it is adorable.
  • Only wo calls today, which means I can workout AND go visit the psychic before work #2
  • Had a great night last night ... went to dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Lauren C and Lizzy G; got a few drinks; snack attacked the night away later while watching Jersey Shore.  Amazing.
  • No plans this weekend (other than work) and the couch-mate is out of town for the weekend, so I plan to catch up on many many trash tv shows (including but not limited to about 15 episodes of Gilmore Girls)
  • Had a successful trip up north for some bizznass meetings.  Found out where I stand with my position, opportunities for growth, etc.  All in all pretty rewarding, but we'll see come May 15 when I'm up for my raise/bonus!
  • This weather is unbelievable--I love it so much!
Have a good weekend kitty cats!

Happy Birthday to my amazing, handsome, sweet, loving, fantastic, funny, smart, terrific kitty babies Mustacho and Carlton Banks!  Ugh I can't believe they're THREE already!!  Time flies when you're in love ...

I remember when they were just itty bitty babies.  They were just too stinkin cute!  Now I only occasionally see a little glimmer of baby in their faces, which kind of breaks my heart a little.  However, they are now very handsome adults, and I feel exceptionally blessed to have them in my life.

Carlton ... and no that
isn't a wiener, it's his tail.

Unfortunately, I don't get to spend my boy's birthday at home with them as I'd like.  I'm up in the corp office actually getting some work done.  Oh the life of a single mother!

Anyways, there's my little shout-out to the loves of my life.  Happy Birthday, Moosey and Cal!

XOXO, Cat Lady

Home Sweet Dream Home

Ya'll, I am super tired of renting.  I am 25 years old and have been a renter for only 4 years but have lived in 4 homes (my current apartment is a record-breaker--I have been here well over a year).  Unfortunately, I have a decent amount of credit card debt, no savings, student loans, and a car payment.  Not exactly the ideal candidate for a home loan.  However, I am in the process of paying down my cards and getting some savings together (my tips from the bar every weekend are now going towards a future down payment)

My "dream" house requirements are pretty simple:
  • At least 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms preferable, but I'd deal with 1
  • Lots of natural light
  • Separate dining room
  • Decently upgraded kitchen
  • Closet/storage space
  • Location, location, location!  There's a 15 or so mile radius that I'm looking into.  My current town is likely where I'll do most of my hunting, but there's an adorable little small town area that I love too
  • No ghosts ... ok, so yes, this is ridiculous.  Yes, I have researched the laws of what a real estate agent must tell you re: dead bodies, etc.  And yes, this is a legit fear of mine.  What would happen if you bought a house, went to sleep for the first night, and then whamo! A ghost comes out.  Holy gracious, I'd flip the eff out!
A few other things I'd really like:
  • Good outdoor space (deck, patio, room for a grill at least!)
  • Attached garage ... ok, so by now if you're reading this blog you likely know that I am a crazy cat lady ... but my legit reason for wanting an attached garage (ya know, other than for snowy/rainy weather, extra storage, etc) is that I am petrified of the boys trying to sneak outside when I open the door.  They've only ever lived in apartments and make it a habit to attempt to run out in the hallway any chance they get.  All the places I'm looking at are on a main-ish road and I'm worried they'd get hurt or lost or whatever.  Ok, crazy cat lady rant over.
  • Finished basement ... or at least a basement that I can be in without being totally creeped out
Anyways, future home is pretty far off in the future ... I'm thinking I should be good to go in about a year and a half.  But a girl can always dream, right?!
