I used to carry an inspiration journal around, it started out as a book that I wrote craft ideas and recipes in but one day when I was looking through it I realized it was just a cute and colorful wish list of things I want. I really want to have a simple life with less distractions but I love distractions!

Today, I found this blog. The author has a No Spend Month feature, she and her family picked a month to spend less than $250. I want to try! I am going to speak with Alex about this tonight. I don't think October is a good month, with my birthday, anniversary, and cruise and all. November and December aren't looking too good either, but January may be perfect!

I get a daily newsletter from Ideal Bite, it has tips about going green and stuff. You know the new super trend that is sweeping the nation. I definitely believe in being more conservative and less wasteful, and some of the info that they've sent has helped me to go paraben and sulfate free. The more I read about parabens, the more they scare me and with my reproductive "issues" I thought it couldn't hurt anything (except my wallet). I just hope what I am reading is true. They had a drawing the other day for a Sea Bag. Sea Bags are totes that are made from used sailboat sails. I got this one in the mail from them the other day.
It's very nice! I had no idea what a $110 tote bag was like but now I do. Yay! They have drawings all the time and now I know that you really can win something.

I also got these shoes
I love ebay, they were brand new with the tags and only $32!

I also got a new swimsuit (that I don't really care for but I waiting too long and everything is out of stock) to wear to the Bahamas. We leave in 21 days! Yippee!

I've started reading this.

I am afraid of what it's going to do to my brain.

Once when I was a kid, I complained to another girl in the neighborhood that I never got any mail. About a week later, I got a large manila envelope addressed to me with no postage and no return address. It was filled with little trinkets, I don't really remember exactly what. I think maybe a drawing and some hair clips or something, but I was very happy! I found out later that it was from the girl down the street. I always thought that it was very nice of her to do that. I still love mail, not junk mail or bills but real mail like cards and packages of things that I have ordered. I am waiting on a few packages now. . . I am very exited!

I started knitting a sock! Yay, I have been so intimidated by dpns but NO MORE! As soon as I find my camera charger, I will post a pick. It's not much of a sock right now anyway. Now I have to go to work, but it's FRIDAY!

Do Pipe Bombs Tick?

I saw a live version of this at DC. It was great! I think it should have won the masquerade.

We had a great time, it was even better than I had expected.. Alex and I are both kind of sad that Dragoncon is over. We are already planning to go back next year when Alex's foot will be better! Yay!

And since I am getting so much nerd on lately, I thought I would post this. . .

Your result for The Star Wars Personality Test...


According to our patented JawamaticTM technology, you are most like See-Threepio (C-3P0) in personality.

Threepio, being a protocol droid, favours traditional values. Programmed for etiquette and protocol, he is always concerned with doing what is proper and expected, caring for people's material needs above all else. He is methodical, value-driven and practical at his best.

Threepio is, in a word, diligent.

(The polar opposite of See-Threepio is Artoo-Detoo.)

The eight profiles are as follows:
