My Life: The 'Grand' Adventure

Well folks, I have been in Little Rock, AR for almost 2 weeks now and much has happened. I will not bore you with the repeat of past bad behavior...somehow I come here and I always make the same 'mistakes'. Tis life and I've come to expect it.

My parents have decided that their way of coping with me moving on the other side of the country is to buy me things that I might possibly need sometime in the next 4-5 years. You would think these people will never see me again. It is quite endearing, but also a little annoying. However, like any good Southern girl, I refuse to complain about someone giving me things ;)

Oh, so the most exciting thing that has happened to me while visiting the Little Rock is the chance to meet BILL CLINTON! Yes, that's right y'all I met THE MAN. I was lucky enough to get a ticket (thanks to my dad) to the unveiling of the presidential library stamp. There are 12 Presidential libraries in the country and they were all doing ceremonies on the same day. Since the Clinton Library is in Little Rock, I went to see the show. In the end, I was in a room with about 50 people (you had to have a ticket to get in) and I listened to Cinton speak among others. Then at the end I headed over to my Dad and I shook Clinton's hand and talk to him for about 2 seconds...still pretty awesome.

Well, that's about as much as an update as I have time for. I will be leaving for Missoula, MT in less than 24 hours. I will be on the road for 3 days so if any one gets bored PLEASE call me...I think it is finally hitting me that I'm not coming back to MD any time soon and I'm starting to get anxious about MT....Of course I'm sure it will all work out per usual.

Love ya.

A Friday Night Adventure



Once upon a time (2 or 3 Fridays ago) 3 debauched bitches decided to waste away their evening with old fashioned debauchry. Krystal and I started drinking around 2:30 and T joined within the hour. There was much alcohol and semi-good movies consumed. And like any good fairy tale there were many lessons learned.

1. Drinking an unknown substance especially of a strange color is usually trouble (Exhibit A: the picture above).
2. Those weak of stomach should not first mix burritos and pizza with large quantities of alcohol.
3. Champnage is good....pink champnage is better
4. Don't drink and dial people....it is harmful to your wellbeing
5. Friends are important....really drunk friends are a riot
6. Always carry a mirror with you...you never know when you will have to check for breathing
7. Never order a pizza drunk...not only will you scare the pizza guy, but you will not order a good combo of toppings
8. Last but certainly not least...never trust a cross-dressing wolf...this moral was not learned that night, but should always be kept in mind!

This post is super late, but it had to be written. Stay tuned to a late update of the adventures in Little Rock and the time K met the President (well ex President).

Til Then,
K

Catching Up

So I am now back in Little Rock...my home away from home or more accurately the place where my parents live...for the moment. I am officially no longer a College Park resident and frankly it hasn't really sunk in yet. My parents ask every few hours how I am doing and I have learned to tune them out. I realize how much I really did grow up in those 4 years at college. I'm beginning to understand that what I thought was the elusive "adult status" wasn't really that far away all along. Not sure if that makes sense...but whatever.

My last night in Maryland was excellent and it was so great for my friends to come out. We went to Franklin's for awhile and then to Cornerstone. We drank,we danced, we laughed and I finally met the elusive Zach :) Then as it got later I had to start saying goodbye. I hated that we did it in Cornerstone where I was past drunk, but I think it was for the best. I'm sure I would have made a scene otherwise.

Krystal, Brandon, Laura, Moody, and I left Cornerstone when it closed and then we found ourselves at the fountain. We swam, we wrestled, we were complete dumbasses and it was awesome...you know you wished you were there. Krystal and I walked home SOAKING WET and then attempted to take showers with a shower curtain...it was messy. We possibly got 2 hours of sleep and then it was off to the airport with B in tow.

Saying goodbye to Krys and B was definitely harder than I expected.

Now I'm in Little Rock and I already miss everyone back in CP, but in the same breath it doesn't feel like I've actually left, just on vacation. I'm sure it will hit me when I get to Missoula.

Soon I will tell the story of 3 debauched bitches and a Friday afternoon....stay tuned!

My day off and this is what I do...



My pirate name is:


Red Grace Bonney



Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

You scored as Elizabeth Bennet. As one of Austen's most beloved characters, Elizabeth Bennet represents what most women would like to become: strong, independent, and loyal. Of course, she has her faults including a stubborn will of iron and a clinging to first impressions. Overall, Lizzie is bright and lovable...something to admire and aspire to.

I love the South :)

Ya'lls Southern Horoscope

It has become pretty obvious that our present astrological signs have served their purpose and that we should get rid of them. When out driving around one can see bulls, and once in a great while I suppose, even a ram. Up the street there may be some twins. The rest of these things are just too obscure. You only see crabs on vacation. There are no lions, or scorpions, not many archers and no damn water bearers. Virgins? The neighborhood's not crawling with them either, needless to say. SO what we need here is some relevance. We need things we can recognize up there in the night sky.

Okra Dec 22 - Jan 20: Although you appear crude, you are actually very slick on the inside.
Okra have tremendous influence. An older Okra can look back over his life and see the seeds of his influence everywhere. Stay away from Moon Pies.

Chitlin Jan 21 - Feb 19: Chitlins often come from humble backgrounds. Many times they're uncomfortable talking about just where they came from. A chitlin, however, can make something of himself if he's motivated and has plenty of seasoning. When it comes to dealing with Chitlins, be very careful. Chitlins can burn and then erupt like Vesuvius, and this can make for a really terrible mess. Chitlins are best with Catfish and Okra. Remember that when marriage time rolls around.

Boll Weevil Feb 20 - Mar 20: You have an overwhelming curiosity. You're unsatisfied with the surface of things, and you feel the need to bore deep into the interior of everything. Needless to say, you are very intense and driven as if you had some inner hunger. Nobody in their right mind is going to marry you, so don't worry about it.

Moon Pie Mar 21 - April 20: You're the type that spends a lot of time on the front porch. It's a cinch to recognize the physical appearance of Moon Pies. Big and round are the key words here. You should marry anybody who you can get remotely interested in the idea. It's not going to be easy. This might be the year to think about aerobics. Maybe not.

Possum Apr 21 - May 21: When confronted with life's difficulties, Possums have a marked tendency to withdraw and develop a don't-bother-me-about-it attitude. Sometimes you become so withdrawn, people actually think you're dead. This strategy is probably not psychologically healthy, but seems to work for you. One day, however, it won't work and you may find your problems actually running you over.

Crawfish May 22 - June 21: Crawfish is a water sign. If you work in an office, you're always hanging around the water cooler. Crawfish prefer the beach to the mountains, the pool to the golf course, the bathtub to the living room. You tend to be not particularly attractive physically, but you have a very good head.

Collards June 22 - July 23: Collards have a genius for communications. They love to get in the "melting pot" of life and share their essence with the essence of those around them. Collards make good social workers, psychologists, and baseball managers. As far as your personal life goes, if you are a Collard, stay away from Moon Pies. It just won't work. Save yourself a lot of heartache.

Catfish July 24 - Aug 23: Catfish are traditionalists in matters of the heart, although one: Whiskers may cause problems for loved ones. Catfish are never easy people to understand. You prefer the muddy bottoms to the clear surface of life. Above all else, Catfish should stay away from Moon Pies.

Grits Aug 24 - Sept 23: Your highest aim is to be with others like yourself. You like to huddle together with a big crowd of other Grits. You love to travel so maybe you should think about joining a club. Where do you like to go? Anywhere they have cheese or gravy or bacon or butter or eggs. If you can go somewhere where they have all of these things, that serves you well.

Boiled Peanuts Sept 24 - Oct 23: You have a passionate desire to help your fellow man. Unfortunately, those who know you best -- your friends and loved ones -- may find that your personality is much too salty, and their criticism will probably affect you deeply because you are really much softer than you appear. You should go right ahead and marry anybody you want to because in a certain way, yours is a charmed life. On the road of life, you can be sure that people will always pull over and stop for you.

Butter Bean Oct 24 - Nov 22: Always invite a Butter Bean because Butter Beans get along well with everybody. You, as a Butter Bean, should be proud. You've grown on the vine of life and you feel at home no matter what the setting. You can sit next to anybody. However, you too, shouldn't have anything to do with Moon Pies.

Armadillo Nov 23 - Dec 21: You have a tendency to develop a tough exterior, but you are actually quite gentle. A good evening for you? Old friends, a fire, some roots, fruit, worms and insects. You are a throwback. You're not concerned with today's fashions and trends. You're not concerned with anything about today. You're really almost prehistoric in your interests and behavior patterns. You probably want to marry another Armadillo, but Possum is another somewhat kinky, mating possibility
