Guess what??

I moved!

For the last few months, I have been living with my parents. I know. Way to be an adult, Stefers. My parents were nothing but accommodating, though, and actually catered to my needs during my stay. Sure, there were rough spots, but we worked through them.

MomLady and Pop, you guys are awesome, and I owe you more than I can possibly ever pay you back. It takes a lot of love and dedication to put up with my crap, and your efforts most assuredly do not go unnoticed.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Now that the gushy stuff is over, I can continue.

Like I said, I moved a little while ago, and it has taken a while to get my life set up again. Things aren't exactly 100% yet, but they're well on their way.

For example, this evening I installed a shower head - get this - all. by. my. onesies.

Yes, my friends, I am a home making genius. Bow to my prowess. I used a tool and everything (don't ask me what the name of the tool is... that's pushing it, bud)!

It is an Oxygenics "Eco-Friendly Pressurized Rain Shower" shower head, and I must say... never before have I felt like I was taking a shower in a waterfall. Never before until this evening, that is!!

It was pretty much the most magical, life-changing experience ever.

Ok, so maybe that's just a little bit hyperbolic. 

But in all seriousness, my shower experience was positively lovely. It beats pre-installed apartment shower heads by about 50 bajillion miles.

I might have even struck this pose:
Taken directly from the Oxygenics website, actually...

I wish I could say that Oxygenics was paying me to advertize their product, but... sadly this is free publicity for them. Of course, if they want to pay me........  

coughcough

Anyhow, now all I have to do is get some lamps...

I've been living in a house for the last 3 years, and I forgot that apartments don't come with overhead lights. Whoops. I've been living in what feels like a cave for the past week or so, because I've been working like a madwoman (60-hour workweek = big kaching but also no life) and haven't had the time to go out and buy lamps.

But here's the thing... I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and stocked up on my bath supplies this weekend (i.e. my new shower head!), and guess what? They had 3 models of floor lamps. 3. Not only that, but they were awful models. They were those really cheap, multicolored pieces of crap that are mostly composed of plastic and inhabit the rooms of sorority girls the world over.

I expected better of you, B³. I expected better...


So next weekend will begin the search for some kind of lighting... from somewhere.


Wish me luck!!


Peace.
Stef.


P.S. I keep apologizing for my lack of posting, but... I'm going to do it again. Work has been grueling as of late with many, many late hours (but a bangin' paycheck), but I plan on nipping that in the bud soon. I mean, job will still be had, but we're getting more support in the form of additional staffing, so things should lighten up quite a bit. That way, I can actually spend my time at home writing, reading, or summat instead of passed out in an attempt to recuperate from the previous day / prepare for the next.


At any rate, things will be better, and you will be getting more posts from me!! Yay!

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
