Nettie 2.0

Yep, I'm moving all out! You should be getting an email from me when the new site is ready with the link. Which will hopefully be soon- if not, be patient! That's why I went around leaving comments to a few of you to email me. If not, shoot me one: I won't be posting the addy here, most likely, so [please watch out for that. See you on the flip side!

An Actual Tag

Astonishing, isn't it? Thanks, Blair!

Four Jobs I've Had: 1. My first job was hostess at a pizza place. It was okay until the new manager decided she didn't like Christians, more specifically me. I was young and evangelistic and am not bothered by the fact that she didn't.
2. Stellar Bath and Body Works associate, of course! Been there over a year and still enjoy it.
3. If you don't know this one, I'm not going to tell you. It was last summer and I lasted two weeks and I am not cut out for food service.
4. Babysitting, I guess? I have a semi-regular gig with an Australian family.

Four Movies I Watch Over and Over Again: 1. The Sound of Music. At midnight alone in my room....
2. Aladdin. That used to be the only thing that could put me to sleep.
3. Shrek and Shrek 2, which I actually like better.
4. Hocus Pocus. Hey, I like the witches.

Four Places I've Lived: 1. This is the only state I've ever lived in.
2. I wouldn't mind Virginia, though, as I have a lot of family there.
3. Or someplace on the beach.
4. Maybe California, where the moonbats reign.

Four T.V. Shows I Watch: 1. Law and Order: SVU. Love it, baby, especially Mariska Hargitay.
2. Reruns of the Golden Girls. Give me about 20 seconds of an episode and I can tell you which one it is.
3. Whose Line Is It Anyway? It's funny and often makes no sense. Kinda like me.
4. Commander in Chief. Not ashamed to admit it.

Four Places I've Been on Vacation: 1. Austria. I loved that place. The songs come to life!
2. The food in Italy is everything you've heard about, but man did I get sick of churches. And monasteries. With hot monks...
3. San Francisco. Nobody told me it was cold there in the summer.
4. Washington, D.C. Requisite for any educated Southerner. Okay so I made that part up.

Four Websites I Visit Daily: 1. My own, of course.
2. MeeVee- personalized TV listings.
3. Gmail- probably check this the most frequently.
4. And Yahoo, for more email, groups, weather, random articles.

Four Favorite Foods: 1. Nestle Triple Chocolate Supreme Drumsticks.
2. Pasta- plain with butter which is about as ambitious as I make. But Italian anything, really.
3. Berry Blue Jell-O. Another childhood favorite.
4. Granny Smith apples and cheese. The simple things.

Four Places I'd Like to Be Right Now: 1. With a person who understands me better than anybody else in the world.
2. At a Beatles concert. "We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine...."
3. Out killing some frogs. Some really, really loud frogs.
4. With Austin. Always.

Four Bloggers I'm Tagging: I think I'll save those for when I really need them.

May I Just Say...

That I love this state? Or in particular, its weather. It was 70 degrees today. 70. That's 21 Celcius for those of you in a metric Great Frozen Wasteland. Hee hee. So, who wants to join me in my subtropical paradise?

Many, Many Odd Habits

As we all know, I love memes. Because sometimes I'm lazy and it's easier than actually thinking up something clever. I mean, uhhhh, cause they're fun.

1. I watch TV with the subtitles on. I don't like to miss a single detail. And the new Sound of Music DVD has the nuns' singing in Latin captioned...I don't know why this fascinates me.

2. I also have a tendency to memorize stuff I hear. I just pick it up, mostly songs. Or the entire second scene of the Lion King, with Scar and the mouse (Life's not fair, is it? You see I, well, I, shall never be king. And you shall never see the light of another day....)

3. I had this really good odd habit thing in mind and when I remember it I'll put it here.

4. I'm actually very particular about how I sleep. I have to have showered if I've been outside (i.e. even if I showered that morning I still have to that night). The door to the hall has to be shut, hall light off. And the bathroom door, also light off. Covers tucked in, so my feet don't hit space. TV on, usually history channel but sometimes a DVD. And yes, a stuffed rabbit.

5. I had a class one time in a room where the air conditioner made a 'errrrrrrrrr' sound. I couldn't hear it, my brain just tuned it out and it didn't bother me. But on the other hand, I got a new watch for Christmas. I really needed one but I don't wear it much because I think it ticks too loud. It just drives me nuts.

Here Ya Go Kids

Makes me glad I'm only an unofficial part of the S.C. political scene, and so can express my views and preferences here without fear of reprisal. Hee hee. Now, who wants to guess the new one?

Bizarro Dreamo

We're outside, afraid. Hiding in an incomplete, blanketed treehouse from the Nazis. Pretending to be cartons of apples.Concealing a little girl underneath me so she wouldn't cry. And no, you can't go to the bathroom either, they'd see that.

Planes flying overhead, bombs dropping, buildings falling. I get out from under the apples to investigate when all is quiet. Running through the trees, no one on the ground but a blonde enemy tries to stab agile me. Watch out for the gorillas!

I am captured! But her dark partner won't let her kill me. He leaves and she prowls and I escape. Take my apple prisoners with me to work, where they are cleverly disguised as stock in the backroom. The door opens yet again- but it is the dark man! I grab him. Lisp, "Why, Yister Men!" Don't go in the back room. On the floor, where my little manager stands. The kiss catches him off guard and he exits the same way he came. Whew.

Another store in the mall. Janna wants a bathing suit. I don't, I'm already wearing one. I want Cheetos. Any kind of Cheeto you could want, except pizza. Where're my pizza Cheetos?

Teleported back to BBW alone. And he storms in- my bad professor act did not fool him. He grabs my face, speaks- "Mister Yen. Mister..." Whatever, just don't find the prisoners, the cleverly disguised prisoners. There is chaos on the floor, the chaos of a hundred frenzied shoppers...

Um- too much History Channel, maybe? Something...

I Dream of Simple Things

"Don't point the Roman candle towards your face, Nettie!"

"No, I dunno where Janna went, she went into the woods after the rocket and didn't come back..."

Attempting to get rid of the why-did-I-buy-these Chocolate Pop-Tarts, but discovering a cherry pair I must've stuffed in there sometime....

It's okay to ask for help. But you know, sometimes I think I'll never learn that lesson.

I managed to fit yet another bumper sticker on the car. Had to really squeeze it on there though...

Friends so good they make you cry.

A favorite pair of jeans, in a size I'd never buy now. But they grew with me, and no other pair can ever fit the same.
