Random word

So I randomly wake up with a word stuck in my head or a song. So this morning I woke up saying spina bifida. Here is the definition curteousy of wikipedia:

Spina bifida (Latin: "split spine") is a developmental birth defect caused by the incomplete closure of the embryonic neural tube. Some vertebrae overlying the spinal cord are not fully formed and remain unfused and open. If the opening is large enough, this allows a portion of the spinal cord to protrude through the opening in the bones. There may or may not be a fluid-filled sac surrounding the spinal cord. Other neural tube defects include anencephaly, a condition in which the portion of the neural tube which will become the cerebrum does not close, and encephalocele, which results when other parts of the brain remain unfused.

Spina bifida malformations fall into four categories: spina bifida occulta, spina bifida cystica (myelomeningocele), meningocele and lipomeningocele. The most common location of the malformations is the lumbar and sacral areas . Myelomeningocele is the most significant form and it is this that leads to disability in most affected individuals. The terms spina bifida and myelomeningocele are usually used interchangeably.

Spina bifida can be surgically closed after birth, but this does not restore normal function to the affected part of the spinal cord. Intrauterine surgery for spina bifida has also been performed and the safety and efficacy of this procedure is currently being investigated. The incidence of spina bifida can be decreased by up to 75% when daily folic acid supplements are taken prior to conception.[1]

At last

Today I lounged around all morning surfing the net, talked to my sissy most of the morning and listened to music. I was anxious for the mail so I could watch the movie netflix was sending me. (BTW if I ever write netflicks it really means netflix. I have a huge tendency of renaming stuff!) So I went to check the mail at 1ish and my mail was no where to be found. I was a bit annoyed/bummed so I went to my sofa to be comforted and fell asleep ;)
I woke up around 5ish went to check the mail and it was there in all it glory!! I gotta tell yah it was the best trip to my mail box e-v-e-r!! Here is the first item that I got:
Booo Yah!!
I'm so excited to finally have the chance to go to jury duty. I think it would be an incredible experience to sit in on a case. I help attorneys prepare for trials all the time but do not get the opportunity to go watch the trial. (OK I went once and crap hit the fan and it was postponed a month or so) Although it would not be one of my attorney in action, (which I would love to watch) it would be fascinating. At least I think so. Everyone thinks I'm being sarcastic (I know I excel in it) but I'm not I'm so stoked! I'm not crazy people!!
I also got and invitation to my cousin wedding in Cancun, Mexico! I hope I can afford to go. It would be tons of fun. What can I say. . . I want to feel the warmth of MEXICO!! Who doesn't?
I got a loan bill and an invitation to apply for another loan! Which I want I've been working on consolidating my debit and getting it paid off as quickly as possible!! My goal is by 12/31/2010 at the absolute latest!! I have prayed to Jesus for some time now to help me come up with a solid plan to get my financial affairs together. I finally got my answer!!
Thank you Jesus!!
For the fist time in a very long time I feel like I'm no longer drowning and I have my life together. I am ultimately in control of my life and it feels FABULOUS!!
I'm so happy and proud of my accomplishments!!
Thank you JESUS!!!

Mother Nature

. . . don't fuck with her, she'll bite you in the ass!! Seriously!

Ok :) so I decided that I did not want my Aunt flow to visit me while I was on vacation. (she visited me on the last vacation) I decided to play a magic trick called when you finish the 3rd row of your birth control skip to a new pack. She did not grace me with a visit while I was on vacation, but it was a big trick on her end, ugh!! She arrived the week I should have started the new pack and decided to stay for an entire f$%#ing month, sigh. A WHOLE MONTH!!! Ohh Emmm Geeee!! Biggest mistake ever!! Ladies don't do it. It's not worth it. I hope my lapse in judgment taught you all a valuable lesson!!

You're welcome!

King of Leon

is one of the greatest American rock bands! If you have not listened to their music. . . you need to! ASAP! I must listen to their beautiful music daily! They are a really neat group. They formed in Nashville, Tennessee. They have been around since 1999. The group consist of 3 brothers & their cousin, very cute!

Oh how I heart the music they make :)

I'm very disappointed that Kanye did not steal Taylor's lime light, BUT more disappointed that Taylor did not thank him for not stealing it, ugh! Seriously Taylor what's your problem? If she would of blasted him she would have received some major kudos from the world, but no she's acting like a lady and shit. Lame! She could of earned SO much street credit, but NOOOOOOO!!! Better luck next time!

Leona Lewis - Footprints In The Sand

I love this song. . . I can not get enough of it.

I'm not sure how to post a borrowed video (no not stolen just not mine) and this site does not allow me to copy and paste (I learned that the hard way, sigh) so I can not even give you the lyrics, grrr! (that's a lie, I could I'm just not going to type them) Look it up and listen to it. It's so beautiful! I hope you like it as much as I do :)

Mean girls with the unknown creepy dolls! These girls were straight up bitches to Jess. If you ever see them walk up to them and just start laughing at them or punch them.

After our 10 mile walk all over Seattle we went to the market for some seafood. I took them to my apartment to relax before we went to dinner at vi Bacchus sushi for dinner. I took them around Broadway and it was so mellow, so they did not really get to see the wild Broadway. I had a fun day with Sam & Jess! Thanks for everything!

Youth in Revolt

Mondo, Nadia & I went to watch Youth in Revolt on opening night! We grabbed some jamba juice after locking in the tickets! (1st things 1st people) It was awesome! We laughed pretty much the entire movie! Watch if you haven't already!
After the movie we went out to dinner at La Creperie Cafe on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore! We dinned outside on the patio and were able to enjoy some people watching. I was telling Nadia a story about Mondo & I getting ice cream after we got home from our busy day (5 guys, farmers market, clothing shopping, tailors, house shopping and car wash). (Earlier Mondo was telling me about our favorite ice cream truck and how it kinda appears when you talk about it. He said one day it came by and they literally followed the music in the car until they found it, the ice cream man asked "are you guys following me" and Mondo proudly said "yes")
SO when we got home it appeared just like magic. We looked at each other and knew we were going to have ice cream. So we parked and being impatient as can be I suggested crossing the street and getting in line. We did :) So we are waiting and waiting and try to decide what we wanted to order. It was our turn, my phone rings and I said to Mondo "oh crap it's him, I want a 2 scoop sundae with strawberry ice cream & cookies and cream." (he is a guy I met the last time I was in LA, we were planning to get together while I was in town) So I thought I was being slick I walked at least a house 1/2 away from the truck. I'm talking to this guy figuring out what we are going to do and in the middle of his sentence he said "Are you at the ice cream truck" I could not help but laugh I almost dropped my phone and in my embarrassed voice I said "yeeeees" and he continued his sentence. Didn't mention it again. I was a bit horrified because I'm a girl. Nadia just about feel out of her chair and spit her champagne out. Ahh too funny! For the next 20ish minutes we would randomly say "Are you at the ice cream truck" It didn't get out we laughed every time ;)

Mondo, Nadia & I had a lovely dinner with Guido & Crystal.



My filet mignon was delish!

Taco Meat

OK I'm well aware of the fact that almost all men have taco meat, but for crying out loud must you show it off? Please keep your taco meat covered show it off at home. Think of it as your treasure do you want to share it with the world?? It's yours save it for yourself & loved ones. You can also just save it for the special someone in the bedroom ;)

You might all recognize this sweet face, he is a major taco meat offender
Here is an example of Simon Cowell & his taco meat:

Yuck! Cover it up son!
Please keep you taco meat covered, thanks!

I made a special trip with my cousin's Juanito & Gigi to visit our cousin's in Oxnard. They say we never visit. It's not true we do just not often. It was a short trip, but we had fun. Now they can get off our backs about never visiting! I love you familia de Oxnard!!

5 Guys Burgers and Fries

OMG the other love of my life. . . food! I was introduced to a place called 5Guys Burgers and Fries by Mondo & Nadia. It is so freaking good. I do not eat fast ever. . . let alone finish eating before anyone. Well I finished my burger before anyone every single time we went. Mondo & Nadia were shocked.
During my stay in California I went there just about every other day. You can say I'm an addict. I decided to return the favor and introduce Juanito and well he's an addict now!

MTV's Jersey Shore!

Oh how I love thee. . .
train wreck called Jersey Shore!!
If you have not watched it you seriously should!! It's the best train wreck e-v-e-r! It's so bad you just can't turn away. The show is so ridiculous almost as ridiculous as the cast!! If I could spend the day with them I would in a heart beat. It's very entertaining and so amusing. It's one of my guilty pleasures. I'm excited about next season. If you want to learn how to "beat the beat" or "fist pump" then do yourself a favor and watch it asap!!
This is the greatest show!
GTL Baby!!
