Here is a cool website called that has a function where you can upload a picture of yourself and it tells you which famous people you look like. So far I've gotten a combination of: Shannen Doherty, Sofia Coppola, and Jodi Foster... among other random people as well.

Windy City here I come! There will be some Cereality-ing, some Foodlife-ing, some Pine Yard-ing, and some cousin hugging!

Happy Birthday Jess!

Quote of the night - Monday

"that's called 'child bride'."

it's just her name

The neighborhood cat that hangs out in Dave's backyard (that I call Mange because it usually looks so Mangy!) looked all clean and fluffy today. Was she just washed by the rain or did her owners un-mange her manually?

enjoying rivoli

*bug* HAPPY *bug* BIRTHDAY *bug*

Happy Birthday Dave!

Today, 12/12, my Dave turns 26.

Of course I shouldn't have even tried to plan a surprise dinner for him, we all know how Tor is when it comes to surprises... it's very very hard for her to keep the secret... mainly out of sheer excitement.

Anyways, I was doing such a good job... I only had about 24 hours to go until our dinner reservation at Rivoli. Then, of course, as I am listening to my voicemail on Sunday afternoon, and my Dave has his head up really close near mine, he hears the restaurant calling to confirm the reservation. Doh! :( I'm an idiot. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right? Or, wait, it's actions speak louder than words, right? Shit.

does he look any older?

Word of the day - Saturday

Is this what he meant when he screamed out "Grapple Blue!" in his sleep? Grapple's aren't blue though...

"Grape+apple = grapple, Almost as creepy as turducken"

coming home

the top three things i have been missing while i have been in norway...

1. my boyfriend
2. my cell phone
3. tofu

Norway pictures

Here are the first pics I am posting from Norway. I will do more from home...

This is me and Monica having some pizza in the tower. We got a good look at the city of Trondheim. Notice the sun is setting already... um yeah, we were having lunch.

Here I am helping Daniel scrape ice off of Monica's car. The little red ladybug was even cuter in person! :) "Where are your gloves, California girl?"

And, here I'm getting excited about this wee cheese grater. I learned that it is not actually for cheese... but it's still super cute.

Finally, here is an adorable wintery shot of me and Mon. We were out for a walk today enjoying the snow and the few hours of sunlight.
