Casually Cruel

Settle down Melanie! Take care of your little plant. The little bamboo is going to get bigger and she is going to have to transfer it to a much bigger pot. I am rambling about a stupid little bamboo plant. How stupid! The little pandas on the vase are annoying because they look like my cat Betelgeuse. Yes, hes named after the star. It’s the coolest star in the universe. Pun intend! HAHA. Any who, I am in a weird mood. I have this slight headache and I really need it to go away. Its really annoying. I hope I can get moving really fast and get this done with baby slippers. If I can get my thought process streamlined and my keyboarding more accurate, this will go by a lot faster but I guess that’s the point, right?

baby socks

I try to listen to music without lyrics but sometimes the instrumental stuff can get a bit old. I think im going to try classical. That might help unclog my mental flow. After this song. Craig shaved his beard. I cant shave mine. It’s the playoffs and its tradition. As long as the Giants are in it, the beard stays. I hope they can pull of the win and the sweep of the nationals tonight. That would make me feel really good about them facing either the cardinals or the dodgers. Part of me wants the cardinals to beat the dodgers because I don’t like to see the dodgers advance at all. The other part of me wants the dodgers to advance so the Giants can knock them out of the running for the world series spot. That’s 7 game series. It would be great if the Giants could sweep the dodgers. Abel would be furious. I don’t blame him. It sucks when your team can’t pull it together, buy baby socks and get the wins they need to be on top. The thing that the Giants have over the dodgers is the post season experience that the bulk of the team has. Although, the Royals are a prime example of a young team that dominates in the postseason. They just swept the Angels. The Angels had the best record in all of baseball so it just goes to show you that anything can happen.

Detroit is out so we definitely wont see a repeat of the 2012 World Series. My prediction is that it will be the Giants and Royals in the world series. San Francisco will be the underdog in any case. They are always the underdog no matter how good they are. People love to hate them I guess. They Royals haven’t had a Championship title in 29 years so that’s whats driving them to try and win. You know what team is due for a playoff spot at least? The Cubs. Over 100 years since they have had a world series title. A whole generation has gone by.

Girl, you Trippin’

I’ve talked about my trip to Malawi and my trip to Budapest and my trip to Rome and my trip to Cyprus. But there is plenty more where that came from. I wanted to tell you about the first time I set eyes on this baby:

The very sexy perfume. Totally changed my life. No joke. I found it on my visit to the Pyranees, the mountain range between France and Spain. I went there for New Year’s one year with my friend Nadia.


She had just started dating this guy called Kike, who was really into body mist Victoria secret. Yeah he was a weirdo. She wanted me to come with her so that she would have a friend since he was bringing his friends. I always get roped into these situations where friends don’t want to do something alone and me being the adventurous idiot I am I never realize it’s going to be a disaster. So she invites me to this and says we are going to have so much fun skiing.

We drive up there and she decides she isn’t going to go skiing and just frolic in the snow. I’m like I came here to go skiing. See you later. So she and Kike build snowmen and I’m hanging out with Kike’s friends who are both in couples so I’m the odd one out and I don’t speak Spanish back then and they don’t speak English. I ski better than some but not well enough to stop myself from speeding away. I end up skiing by myself for several hours, getting lost, not having a cell phone and finally make it back to them like a year later. I had fun, but it was annoying and we had a huge fight about it later stupid girls that we are.
