Today is the fabulous Davezilla's birthday! Dave, you are all things awesome, and the only man I know who can pull off wearing a banana hat, and look thoroughly stylish while doing so.

Have a great one, sweets!

P.S. Hope you don't mind the old cupcake pic. I just didn't have time to bake that 7-layer chocolate fudge fondant cake like I'd planned.

It's sunset day here at C=N! These were from the Thelma and Louise drive home. I must have took about 20-30 pics over the course of fifteen minutes, and we're lucky we didn't get in an accident, since Thelma, I mean, Amy, was also shooting pics with her cameraphone. Enjoy.

Not bad, considering we were going 70, uh, 60 m.p.h. at the time.

This is probably going to sound kind of crass, but Amy and I looked at each other, I said "Riding off into the sunset!," and then we both broke out our cameras. Sometimes, it just all comes together like that.

Four Score and Seven Blogs Ago....

Ok, Jen, ya got me:

Four Jobs I’ve Had In My Life
1. Floral runner (Assistant to the person who actually got to drive the delivery van). Skipped more than a few days of school doing this.
2. Cashier at Fuddruckers (Did the salad bar prep, too). Always came home reeking of hamburger grease.Woot.
3. Lingerie saleperson at Broadway (think a wannabe Macy’s) Ever fit an 80-year old lady for a bra? Nope? Be glad.
4. Temp receptionist over at Apple Computers. Steve Jobs actually said “Hi” to me, and didn’t fire me on the spot. Yup, that was cool.

Four Movies I Could Watch Over And Over Again
1. A Christmas Story (Just ask my family, friends, and ex-boyfriends.)
2. Ghostbusters (“And the flowers are still standing!”)
3. Office Space (“Yes, I got the memo.”)
4. Animal House (Bluto: “My suggestion to you, is to start drinking heavily.” Otter: “I’d listen to him, he’s pre-med.”)

Four Places I Have Lived
1. Brooklyn., N.Y. (With my Tia Rose, in her one-bedroom apartment.)
2. Tucson, AZ (Fresh out of college, idealistic, and thin.)
3. Sunnyvale, CA (First w/above mentioned boyfriend, then when that fell apart, w/a roommate found online.)
4. Sierra Vista, AZ (Here now, w/possibilities.)

Four TV Shows I Love To Watch

3. Gilmore Girls

Four Places I Have Been On Vacation
1. Anaheim, CA (Six Flags, baby!)
2. Lake Wixom, MI (and very briefly, Sandusky, OH; Cedar Point, y’know?)
3. Washington, D.C. (2 and a half days on a Greyhound to get there, but worth it for the friendships forged.)
4. Vancouver, BC (Simply put: Awesome. I absolutely love that place.)

Four Websites I Visit Daily
1. Flickr
2. Davezilla
3. Buttershug
4. Defective Yeti

Four Of My Favorite Foods

4. Bread and Cheese

Four Places I Would Rather Be Right Now

2. Italy or Ireland
3. On a sunny beach, w/clear blue water to wade in, and an ice cold fruity drink in my hand.
4. Vegas, w/my girlfriends, partying it up (or on the other hand, w/my man, partying it up)

Most Wonderful Place I’ve Ever Been
1. Vancouver, B.C.
2. Monterey Bay, CA, specifically, the M.B. Aquarium. Incredible is one way to describe it.
3. San Juan, PR
4. That In-N-Out we visited in San Diego, CA

Break out the gaggle of candles, as it's my birthday. Big props and love to all my family and friends, and here's hoping my boss brings that fabulous cookies and cream ice cream pie from Safeway.

If there's a birthday fairy/pimp out there, I'm thinkin' a copy of Photoshop Elements, a video iPod, or the live Green Day album would be good.

On second thought, just have Viggo Mortensen stop by.

A shot of color for this fab Friday the 13th, as well as a look back at my top 20 pics in Flickr for last year.

Playboy Bunnies Need Not Apply

Legal experts say it is not clear whether the embryos would be regarded in law as rabbit or human.

In the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" category, we now have this.


It's about time! Sheesh.

So I finally went to go see "Walk the Line" last night with my bud, Jen. All I can say now is that I'm perfectly fine with having all of Joaquin's babies, and handing him his Academy Award on Oscar night.

In case you don't speak Gaelic (but really, who doesn't?), that would be me trying to say "Happy New Year to you!". Here's to less bad stuff, and more moosepants for everybody in 2006.

So, broken any resolutions yet?
