19 - Spam Poetry [12 Jul 2006|09:44am]
[ mood | hopeful ]

Here is some spam I received from Stacie Meyers today:

"lower lip was split. But all in all, okay.

They were up to their waists in fog, and then up to their necks. A few

it won't harm her. They even say that they generate good health."

After dinner blues... [14 Jun 2006|10:24pm]
Sometimes if I sit perfectly still and stare at the computer screen I can't help but notice I'm rocking ever so slightly back and forth. I think its the side effects of the computer draining the life from me.

Chilean Wine - damn your moderate price and your delicious after taste.

Baby Shower Time [13 Jun 2006|11:20am]
[ mood | hopeful ]

So next month I'll be throwing a baby shower for my sister in law, Jenny. Anyone have any good ideas? I want to stay away from super corny baby shower games. But maybe ideas for food, decorations, etc? And if the shower game is not super corny, I'm open to suggestions.

Me encanta los cacahuates verdes... [31 May 2006|06:38pm]
The time has come for me to visit Mexico. I'll be there tomorrow.

Incidentally, it should be noted that my Spanish is quite poor. While working on a website yesterday I was entering copy and noticed a city in FL named Punta Gorda, which I immediately translated into "Fat Whore." I was corrected by my boss who said that it actually meant "Fat Lady's Ass" or more literally, "Fat Lady's End." Its actually Puta Gorda that would mean "Fat Whore."

It is possible that if I try too hard to speak Spanish while in Mexico I might end up in trouble.

Also people have been telling me how hard it is to get back in the country these days. I don't look exactly "American" so wish me luck.

Bats on the Brain [22 May 2006|08:43am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So on the way back from the beach this weekend, a bat flew into our windshield and scared the ever loving piss out of me. What was with that bat? Don't they have sonar? Did that bat just commit suicide on my car?

No bat guts on the windshield to report. Kevin claims that animals come to him to die. Did I marry the Grim Reaper of Rodents? He's awful perky to be Death.

So where are we now? [20 Mar 2006|02:54pm]
[ mood | okay ]

Time for my monthly update.

  1. Tried to buy a house. So we applied for a loan and got approved, but not for enough. The new plan of action is just to keep renting and give ourselves a couple more years before we try again. After making this decision, we went to yet another open house yesterday. I guess we'll never learn.

  2. Lots of traveling. We'll be coming up to Birmingham and Huntsville this weekend for Valerie's wedding. We are stopping off in Bham on Friday and then heading up to HSV until Sunday. I'm really excited to see everyone but not at all excited about that drive. Yuck. Then two weeks later we will be in Birmingham again April 6-9 for my brother in law Bo's wedding. That's going to be fun too plus we'll have some extra vacation time that weekend to spend with Birmingham folk.

  3. Babies abound! No its not me. My sister in law Jenny is pregnant as is my soon to be sister in law (Bo's fiance) Emily so come Christmas time there will be babies, babies everywhere. I'm growing fonder of babies and am wondering if I'm becoming a grown up. Those of you who know me know I have never changed a diaper. The idea of me and a tiny human is becoming more appealing. That's all I am going to say. No - its not any time soon so quit getting your hopes up.

  4. Belly ring no more. So with me working a job that requires I sit all day, the ol' navel piercing is not feeling as comfortable as in days of old. In fact, I used to not be able to feel it at all but lets face it, I don't have the body I did when I got this at 18 and perhaps its time that it be taken out. I haven't fully made my decision yet. I haven't had it in for 2 days now just so it can stop feeling so irritated. That's the longest I've ever had it out. Who knows? It may close up. I suppose I can get a different piece of jewelry and see if that helps. Or maybe I have grown (physically and mentally) out of it. I can't decide. Maybe I'll get a tattoo to fill the void in my tummy.

That's it for today. I can't believe I said navel. That's a gross word.

I can't believe how boring I am [20 Feb 2006|10:26am]
[ mood | satisfied ]

So the dressers arrived on Friday and we've got them assembled. Check them out:

The color isn't exactly as advertised. They were a dark chocolate on the website and here you can see that they are pretty cherry. The photos I have make them look a little brighter than they actually are. Its not enough for me to want to send them back and hassle with all that. All in all, my first online furniture purchase was a success. They are way better than what we found here in town both in quality and price.

Now if only my landlord would let me paint our ugly walls.

A nice little evening [15 Feb 2006|10:29am]
[ mood | happy ]

Happy post VDay. Last night was pretty nice. I spent it mostly playing COH because I am nerdy. Then Kevin came home from class and we ate some of the Crab Pasta Salad that I made earlier in the evening. Oh and many chocolate chip cookies at 150 calories a piece. Whoops.

We also watched Jerry Macguire because it was on On Demand and marveled at Tom Cruise before he went crazy. Truthfully, you could see the crazy in his eyes even then.

Nothing much of interest to report otherwise. My trip to ATL is coming up next weekend. I'm not looking forward to the drive.

Online shopping spree [13 Feb 2006|02:37pm]
[ mood | hopeful ]

Ok Trish put New Kids on the Block Super Hits on her ITunes and I'm listening to it and I can't stop friggin' smiling. Oh Donnie Wahlberg - where have you gone?

Ok back to the subject. Last night we finally splurged and bought bedroom furniture. We bought two dressers from Overstock.com. They both got really good reviews from other customers and the sales person I spoke with on the phone said that should they arrive and not be what we thought they would be as far as size, color, quality, they would send me a shipping label back. Also, the shipping was totally free. Can't beat that with a stick. Here's hoping they aren't crap when they arrive.

Also bought a new green comforter. I wish we owned our place so I could paint.

The next piece of furniture that we get will be this headboard although its going to be super expensive to ship. So I don't know when we'll be able to do that.

Anyway, back to NKOTB...


Just realized that this NKOTB album I am listening to is 18 years old. Holy crap.

A reason to buy a new dress [06 Feb 2006|09:01am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

We went to the Tallahassee 25 Bids for Kids this weekend and had a great time. Lots of drinks and dancing but I would have killed for a finger sandwich.

I have posted pictures.

Also, I recently added photos from 2001-2005 so
check those out too

Ok so isn't he the cutest thing you have ever seen? This is my baby cousin Matthew. His mother, my cousin Sabrina and her husband Troy are visiting my parents in Miami from Guyana, South America this month. He's a year old, but I have never seen him until today. Its looking doubtful that I will be able to see them while they are here because of the distance which is too bad. Eek, he's sooo cute! Anyway, just had to share. Tell my husband to get some ethnicity so we can have a little brown baby too. Ours would be diluted. Damn whiteys.

Pictures! [25 Jan 2006|10:34am]
[ mood | enthralled ]

So I've decided to follow in the trend of nailhead and dhazelrig and start posting my pictures using Fotki.com. They offer free accounts with unlimited storage space which works out great for me. I don't have much up now, but I plan on posting a few more albums tonight from home. My fotki homepage is http://public.fotki.com/shekira/. Check it out if you dare.

Anyone else tried this service out yet? Anyone purchased prints? I'm curious about the print quality, so if you have, let me know.

Some boy I went to high school with... [20 Jan 2006|02:49pm]
[ mood | aggravated ]

So this guy I went to high school with sent me a nasty myspace letter today. He's on my friends list because he originally contacted me a few months ago and said hi and asked if I remembered him. I said that I did and it was good to hear from him and that I had added him to my myspace friends list and thought it was neat that we both ended up in Tallahassee. Then nothing for several months. THEN I get this today:

    I saw your ass at waterworks and you completely dissed me...i guess i was right about all the douches i graduated with. Your a cunt and I am so glad i didnt try to waste my time being your friend! Have a nice day!

I don't remember seeing this guy at the bar. I only stayed about an hour and had two drinks. In that time, I do not recall him approaching me and saying hi, waving or even seeing him at all. I'm freaked out by his reaction to me not seeing him. I don't remember him being this angry, but then again, I don't know him very well. At any rate, here was my response:

    I gotta tell ya, after reading this once more, this really hurts my feelings and makes me angry. I'm not sure I want to be your friend either. If I had seen you at the bar, I would have said hi and spoken to you. I didn't see you so therefore I did not.  This is an obvious misunderstanding, however, your response to it freaks me out a little. If you knew me at all in high school, you would know that I am not at all a "cunt" nor a "douche." I know we had some classes together, but I can't say we got to know each other that much. I haven't seen you in many years so if I saw you and didn't recognize you right off the bat, in the dark might I add, then that is unfortunate but I hardly think it warrants calling me names and lumping me into some giant high school group which you have obviously villainized somehow in your head. What's more, why did you wait an entire week before you sent me this email? Have you been seething all week over this? I find this whole thing to be really immature.

    Have a nice day!

RADISKULL! [11 Jan 2006|01:49pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

So last night I finally had an epiphany with using CSS for positioning. Internet Explorer is stupid. That's all there is to it. I found some articles and got some help from some friends who are fellow web designers and I think I finally get out to do the hacks necessary in CSS to get IE to work. Very exciting.

So interesting facts of the day:

  1. There is a check for $400 on its way to me. Yay!

  2. I got my FL driver's license today and my picture is FANTASTIC.

  3. Its sunny and 75 degrees today. Its JANUARY.

  4. I'm eating Mexican food tonight.

  5. When I signed my name on my license I used an '@' symbol instead of an 'a' at the end of my name. I did this on accident. What does that say about me?


So when I was getting my license today which, by the way, they give you immediately, I told the lady that since my name was so long she could use my first initial for my middle name so I could have both my maiden name and my new last name on the card. She said she would but when I got it, she dropped the Dodd part all together and just put Shekira E Derryberry. So that makes me sad. But my photo is still HOT!

Yay! Buffy! [08 Jan 2006|12:16pm]
You scored as Willow. Willow. Smart. Resourceful. Understanding. Full of Self-Doubt. Shy. Unstable. Your live has mostly been about relying on your smarts. You parents mostly ignored you, so you had to learn to be resourceful. Magic came along as a boundless frontier that had a unique set of chalanges and rewards. The mystical is one of most compelling things for you. Only love can surmount that. You emotions are a whirlwind of either strength or destruction. The combination of Brains, Magic & Overwhelming Emotions makes you a dangerous, but very interesting person.
