Movie review

So you know how I am on a horror movie kick right now?
Well last night we watched When a Stranger Calls.
The first hour of it is soooo slow and corny but then it had a few good scenes like the crazy man in the house looking down at the girl and kids from the ceiling rafters. Eeeek. There was a good banging on the door scene & then she opened the door and no one was there. So all in all- not so scary. Maybe 2 minutes worth out of an hour and a half. More fun to make fun of the movie as you watched it. It was one of those. Even House of Wax was better....

I was going to be mean and wait till Abi went to sleep and then go outside and slam my body against her window.....but I decided to play nice!

Buh-Bye vacation

So much for going on vacation. All of our dreams of a vacation were literally just flushed.....
We got our busted sewer pipe fixed.... $800 later. Maybe I will post a picture of an exotic location in the bathroom so when we 'go'- we can pretend we 'went' somewhere.
Sigh. What a poopy story.
I had class last night. I really enjoy it. There are 25 of us in there and it is w/ my fav prof at UCF. Really cool people though in the class. Oh- it's called Multicultural Ed. I just like to keep afloat of what is going on in the ed system. So I get to campus a lil before 6 to park. Schnikes- I had to park on the 4th floor of the garage! It was packed. So of course after class, I go to my car and there is only one other car on the 4th floor besides mine- and of course- it is parked right next to mine which always freaks me out. I had a bad incident on a top floor of a parking garage back in Miami ...involved pepper spray and all. Not a fan of garages.
Right after work I have an Honors ALumni Elections meeting at Applebees. Hopefully it wont last more than an hour. Then I want to drain the pool a little, (maybe go to the gym), and watch some movies.
School is officially closed tomorrow!

What is going on with this madness?!?!? Planes falling from the air, hurricanes going on.....squirrels, plumbing.....such a Monday.
So get this- yesterday, we hada crazy squirrel trapped inside (YES- INSIDE) our pool screen enclosure. Are you kidding me with this? That lil bugger was freaking out and running up and down our screens, the hammock, etc. How did he get in? Earlier in the month we had a red cardinal inside (but the door was left open for that one...). Getting that squirrel out was crazy. Chuckstar tried using a hose and the lil guy loved it and was basically looking for a loofa sponge for the hard to reach areas.....
So then last night I noticed the shower was draining slow which is very, very odd. Then Chuckstar flushed a toilet and it was going very, very slow as well. Same in the back bathroom. So Happy Monday to us- our plumbing is out!!! Schnikes. Rotto Reuter (sp?) is coming over this morning....

Weekend update

First of all- every Floridian owes me a thank you b/c the only reason this hurricane dissipated was b/c we actually prepared for it and bought hurricane supplies (such as tons of pet food, tons of water, etc) in the hottest, muggiest part of the day and in a drizzle. So you are all welcome!

We had a great weekend. On Fri night we went w/ N&O to the trendy lil restaurant called Urban Flats in Winter Park. On Saturday we did some house stuff then went to L&Ms place in New Symerna for dinner w/ their folks. Oh man was the food good. We also got to see the yacht. Schnikes. I would have been happy w/ just the yacht's dingy! It was a 62 foot Symbol yacht. Google it if youd like to see a pic- I can't even express in words how pimp this yacht is.
We also got to eat at the Golden Biscuit and just had a fantastic time.

Today we did some house stuff and the shopping for Mon mornin breakfast. We also went out looking for a sofa bed. After the graduations, we realized we need more sleeping space for family. So then that got us into a house mode and we rearranged our living rooms. We are hoping that the couch we want will go on sale next weekend w/ the holiday and all....We also need a new rug for our TV rooms. Ugh. I might also need to reupolster the drape material over the sliding glass door and maybe switch out the drapes in the TV room. Geeez- this is turning out to be a big project!

Chuckstars diploma arrived today. :)
I have class tomorrow.
More soon.

My nephew is a 3 yr old stud

So let's get straight to the point. My nephew is a stud. He started pre-K. He is goin to parties. AND he has a girlfrend named Jillian. He has kissed her. On the mouth. More than once. :O Her Dad isn't too keen on that! What a player.Schnikes!

So today after work we met with our trainer at the gym. This guy is the size of Chuckstar's femur but all muscle. When Chaz stood up- this guy almost passed out b/c he looked like a dwarf in comparison. So we sat down and discussed goals. I told him I want to tone up and he said I was toned so I know this guy is a bit full of it. He put us on great workout routines though.

Work is going well. Tons of programming going on which is cool- always something going on. I have the female owner of Harley Davidson coming in- I havent wanted to talk w/ her for months. I am also trying to hook up some business contacts for Chuckstar. Oh at work, we hooked up our coworker w/ E-Harmony and match.com It is fun comparing the two.

Tis the wedding season, let me tell you. I feel like I have been wrapping wedding presents at least once a week. Schnikes. Fall is the meca of wedding seasons I guess.

Time for a dog walk. More soon.

movies & stuff

Yesterday after work Yvette came over again for about 2 hours. After she left, I convinced Chuckstar to help me in the backyard. Our Pygamy date palms get this weird fungus- I have no idea what it is- on one side it is solid black and on the other it is covered in what looks like white balls. It's a pain to treat b/c it has 4 inch long spikes on each leaf. Ow.

So we watced Final Destination 3 last night. I really liked it. Highly recommend it. Tonight after the gym or tomorrow I am hoping to watch When A Stranger Calls.

That's my scoop. I am on my way to pick up the asst dean from the car place on my way to work.
Happy Thursday!

The leg spreader.....

So this evening Chuckstar and I went to the gym. They have this crazy machine that I now call The Leg Spreader. So you sit on this machine which is crazy hard to get on. It has these bars that go on the insides of your thighs and WA-Bam- there you go. You have to squeeze those bars till they touch. The interesting part of this device is when you want to leave! It is a production trying to remove oneself from such a device. I really like the track like devices they have there- there is one that I stay on it for a long time only b/c I don't know how to stop it so I have to wait till the whole time is up!If you wait till like 9pm you have the whole gym to yourself. Cool deal (and only $10 a month). It is where I get my TV time in now too.

On an odd note- if any one knows where I can find a KoolAidman costume- let me know. Why do you ask? Do you really want to know? It's work related. Anywho- they are hard to find.

More soon.

1st day of school

I had my first night of class last night. It is a multicultural ed class for a grad certificate I am going for. The teacher is my fav- I had her back in like 1996 back when I was super involved with everything so she has seen me grow up over the years and was thrilled to see me. That's cool. To get to the class, I had to walk past the indoor basketball courts, go through the unmarked hallway to what looks like it is leading you to a closet, and the room was not marked and has no windows. Its a big room- prob one of the best kept secrets on campus b/c it is so hard to find. It should be an interesting class. We had to do the typical intros of ourselves and include where we work and what our educational background was. Out of a class of 23, I'd say 2 or 3 were in their 40's, 3 were in their 30's, me, then the rest were like 23-24 yr olds. As we did the intros, I was listing my degrees like everyone else did but when I was done, you could hear crickets chirp. It was so quiet it was funny! Um yeah- so I have no friends in class! ;) Then the teacher mentioned how I got married on campus and they all thought that was so cool (I thought it was cool how she knew and wasn't even in attendance! Sweet!). So school is cool this semester. I tried to get one more class but they didn't have any offered for my program. Grrr. Parking is CRAZY- as usual the 1st 3 weeks of school.

Speaking of school, my nephew started pre-K. How cool is that!?!?!?He had the coolest book bag and lunch box- parents even called my sis to find out where she ordered it from.
On the home front, I am concerned about Tiger. He is getting hot spots again. It is bad this time. It is on the neck, side, and base of his tail. He didn't even want breakfast and for those of you who know him- that is like hell freezing over.

I knew I would be late getting home yesterday so I left two big chewies for hubby to give to the dogs on his way to work. Monkee is so funny. He gave him attitude like "what the hell is this? Where is my biscuit?" Then he noses at the biscuit cabinet. That dog has so much personality.

Sunday, August 20, 2006


So last night me & the hubby watched a horror flick (House of Wax) before bed.
So we were up chatting at 1:45 am in the pitch dark and I said to him that i would like to change my ring tone. Then my phone lit up the entire room and I read the screen and it said ' ring change & something else'
Schnikes. I peed my pants! It didnt change the ring but right when I said I want to change it - that happened. freaky.

Anywho, on a side note- the new Sonnys has some flavored teas like Mango, strawberry, etc. MMmmmmmmmm.

People do blog on weekends

So today was great. We got to sleep in. Then we picked up our friend who we drove home from last night b/c she had a wee bit too much to drink (we drove her back to her place last night) and she needed to get her truck today. So we took care of that then went to the Mall of Millenia. The drive to that mall sucks, as does the parking, and we didnt find anything. We did get to eat at Brio and we also checked out that Home Depot Expo store. We decided to see a matinee. We ended up seeing the World Trade Center movie. Woowee was that sombering. It was tastefully done though. For instance, instead of showing the planes crashing into the buildings, they showed the shadow of the plane go over the people. It was a very patriotic movie- it followed the story of these 2 cops that were one of the 20 survivors pulled from the rubble. It showed the good that came out of that incident. I have never left a movie where everyone walked out in complete silence. Interesting experience. After the movie I went to pee and I walked in to a room full of crying women. They all knew how the movie was going to end! It was good movie- you leave a bit depressed but that is to be expected. I was glad to see that they didnt sensationalize anything, use computer graphics on everything, or try to make a political statement. Oliver Stone must really like Marines b/c they were very gungho about that in the movie. My one complaint- you know this movie is going to be graphic and depressing (they showed a person falling from the building) so why are there idiots out there who bring their elementary school aged children- esp when Over the Hedge or Ants is playing right next door. Are you freaking kidding me?!?!? Nothing pisses me off more at the movies than seeing dumba** parents bring little kids to completely unacceptable movies (esp on late night school nights). Huge pet peeve of mine. Some people should not be allowed to have kids.
So after that we went to the Oviedo mall. GA Girl got me this fantastic UCF watch so I got it sized. I'll have to take a pic and post it. We putzed around the mall, bought the dogs some toys, and I got some bling for my phone, then we ate at RJ Gators- the food tonight there was on the ball! So now we are going to go watch a horror flick before bed. More soon.

Friday, August 18, 2006


Yesterday was a lovely day. After work, we went home and the hubby grilled some chicken. Then we went to the gym, followed by a dog walk, followed by a swim/hot tub.
Summer is officially over though now. We have our big freshmen reception this Sunday and then the madness fully takes over with fall semester starting on Monday. Yowsers. That snuck up on me fast. The class that I really want to take is closed- I am hoping for an override. We will see. Otherwise I have a back up class.
After work today I am off to stupid Antigua.
More soon!

So proud :)

My house was soooo clean for the party this past weekend that not one but TWO people walked into our sliding glass door. Dang that is a clean door!
I am so going to hell for being proud of that.....

Monkee story of the day

So tonight was a lovely evening. After work we took a nap after doing some house stuff. Then we met up w/ M&L at 8:30 for some fabulous Longhorn. Then me & my stud dog walked and went for an 11pm swim. The pool has been perfect of late.

So on the dog walk, Monkee went to pee on a bush. Unbeknownst (sp?) to us, he was about to pee on a sleeping cat in the bush. Let's just say the cat wasn't having any of that and leaped straight into the air. Needless to say, it scared the pee out of Monkee! No bark or chase came out of the incident- he was too embarassed ;)

Last weekend, all of the parents were up for Chuckstars graduation. On Tuesday at the end of the work day, I threw a surprise graduation party for my coworker. You have no idea how hard it is to pull off a surprise in that office so that rocked.
On tuesday, I hopped in the car and drove to Miami. I got to eat at Picadilly (where every pick, is a dilly). I got lots of girl time in and went to the malls. It was so nice to see the family. My nephew is amazing. I am driving in the car with him, and he starts naming every car that goes buy. For example: There goes a Nissan Atima, Nissam Maxima, Acura TL, Merecdes, BMW, Toyota Camry with a spoiler, Honda Element, Mountaineer, etc Schnikes- he is THREE!
Well I only lasted one night in North Miami. I ended up at my sisters place. I did chalk body outlines on the sidewalk w/ the nephew (I even gave him an extra arm- hee hee). We also got to go to the Hardrock casino in Ft Lauderdale where I blew my $4. I drove back Thursday evening.
On Friday GA Girl came to stay with us for the weekend. That was sooooo nice. We got lots of girl time in. I have missed her so much! We had a graduation party for Chuckstar and Lynn and about 25 peeps showed up for that- a bunch that I haven't seen in ages. The party rocked. Maybe more details later.
On Saturday I had a work party at the Dean's crib and Ga Girl was my date. That was a good time. Afterwords, she wanted to go to Fairavilla to buy stuff for a bachelorette party she is going to or hosting. We brought all the IT guys that I work with from the party. A cop pulled one of them over :o That was fun.
We watched a bunch of movies this weekend (Mean Girls, Rumor Has It, a Denzel Washington movie about a bank robber....4got the name but it was good)- and a few other movies. Very relaxing. Chuckstar had to work this weekend a couple of times. We also made it out to ShoGun.
Ga Girl left today :( and I believe General gets back from Vegas today :)
I am taking tomorrow off as well- I have a doc appt first thing and a car appt after that. I will be stuck there for a few hours. Blah.
This is the last week before school starts for the fall.
More details to follow.
Miss you all!

The Big FU

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
So here is how to give the big FU in Miami. You wait for your neighbor to get a fortress fence, and a week later, you get one slightly taller. Why? Because now your fence is harder to jump so the robbers will go next door. Duh!

I'll try to post more Tribute to Miami Home pics later.

The Bars in Miami

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
Probably not the type of bars you were thinking of!
I don't know why I haven't see Extreme Makeover Home Edition choose pink and yellow with a lovely white bar trim on any of their projects yet.....

More tribute to Miami

I know you didn't get your fill of the fortress fences yet so here is some more.

Trubute to Miami

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
Schnikes- this used to be the best house on the street. Now it is an absoulte eye sore- especially for those of us who had Lasik done and can now see it even more clearly. They got rid of the beautiful trees. They painted it glow in the dark neon lime green. If you close your eyes- the color will still shine through your eyelids. Go ahead- try it. There is a monkey thing hanging from the roof if you look closely. Again with the fortress fence!
My eyes!

Home Sweet Home

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
So I had to share this photo. It is not my childhood home but it is in the neighborHOOD. Check out the normal chain linked fence that is surrounded by what I call the fortress fence. Doesn't it make you just want to go out there and buy two fences? Okay, maybe not so much.

The Journey

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
So I made a trip to Miami this past week. Everyone always asks why I take SR520 and how horribly congested it is. As you see from this photo- this is why I take this road!It was just me and the bugs stuck to my window....

Monday, August 07, 2006

And I'm out

I am off to Miami. Doubtful I will have e-mail in the hood. Catch ya all when I get back. I think it is my first trip to Miami in 7 years that I did not bring Monkster!

Here is where the story begins!

Originally uploaded by drjeeeol.
Look closely at this picture. If you see on the back of the door, I have all of the graduation tickets taped to it at eye level, along with the reader card that tells the speaker how to pronounce the graduates name.

Back to the story.

So me, the graduate, and both sets of parents head to campus for commencement. Keep in mind there is mad amounts of construction going on at that side of campus- especially with the building of the new ginormous commencement building. So we park in BFE, which is a little south of Timbukto and never never land. It is so far that they for once have a shuttle service :) We hop on the bus that takes the looong way around campus to the BACK of the arena. As we get off the bus, I ask the hubby if he has the tickets. He doesn't. Neither do I.
Holy Schnikes! Are you kidding me. Keep in mind, he walks in TWENTY minutes.
So out of the SIX of us, none of us grabbed the tickets that were at eye level!!!
So me and my Dad-in-law hop on the painfully slow bus, haul butt to the Mountaineer, and I just floored it to the house- in four minutes (including missing that one light). It also took 4 minutes to get back. Yeah for all the cops being at work on campus b/c it is a miracle I did not get pulled over! So then I have to park my car. Are you kidding me. I have a faculty decal so that helps. I saw the Wayne Densch Sports Center and parked behind that. The Dad & I then hightailed it through various construction zones and gates probably breaking numerous laws. BUT- we made it.

As we go in (keep in mind, I had a tight velvet shirt on over my favorite lesbian rainbow tank top so I had to take that off, so I am running 1/2 naked and sweaty now)- it was so bright outside and inside was so dark- my eyes wouldnt adjust. So of course my parents went one way and his went the other- and by pushing the time you know we are going to get crap seats. So I see that tempting first row- you know I gotta get a pic- and by the way- I still haven't put my shirt back on!). So the security guards won't let anyone down into the coveted first section. They are yelling at people sending them back. Here I come, a sweaty, angry lesbian shirt wearing chick wielding a giant camera. So I work my way past them shouting "It's all right, I am a UCF photographer, I have to get this shot" and they let me by. Hot dog. I got front row (behind the wheelchairs. Oh wait- it gets better. So I took a reserved seat and it was within talking distance to where hubby & Lynn were seated! Sweeeet!

So that is our crazy story.
We spent the weekend w/ both sets of parents and 4 dogs.
Enjoy the pics!

H-O-T !!!!!

So tonight we must discuss how brilliantly hot my man is. The poor guy took 3 devil classes over the summer with the most worst imaginable class schedule known to man (Monday-Thursday till 10pm AND Saturdays 8:30-5:30). Schnikes! That is on top of working more than 40 hours a week and using vacation days to study.
So what is the point of the story?

He got not one, not two, but THREE As.
That is so hot that I need to go try to make some smart babies with him right now!!!

Monument de Fries

Okay art people- you gotta explain this one to me.

Outside of my building on the main drive into work, they added an art sculpture.
I call it "McDonalds fries."

Let me describe it to you. Take long beams of scrap metal, paint them yellow, then hurdle them into a pile and leave them however they land.

Of course, now it can't be mowed underneath it so you have scrappy looking weeds crawling out through the gaps.

How is that artistic? I think it is crap. Plus with it being hurricane season- I will be PO'd if a giant metal french frie slams through my car.
Why couldn't they go w/ a simple pegasus or Knightro monument? Something with spirit? Well, at least it is yellow....What about a fountain for birds to splash in?
I just don't get it.

coolest video ;)

If you want to watch the best video ever, go to http://www.bhcsi.honors.ucf.edu/

On the bottom center, just click on promotion video. The last 10 seconds is my acting debut.


So today is my mom's birthday :) Interestingly- her brother shares her birthday with her despite being years apart!

I have an interesting Tiger dog story for you. So as you all know, Tiger loves to eat. So I feed him before I go to work and before I go to bed. In the morning, he is super sleepy. Last week he followed me to his food dish (which is in the master bathroom), he flopped down to eat 9standing is not an option I guess that early in the morning). Then he ate all his food and fell asleep with his head in the bowl!What is that!?!?!
Last night I dreamt I took Tiger to a party and as people talked and put their arms down to their sides, Tiger would secretly eat all of their ice cream cones.....Funny stuff.

Work is going well. I really do love it here. It is nice when you really like 98% of the staff. Never a dull moment around here.

Chuckstar is graduating this Saturday :) Both sets of parents are coming up for that. We cleaned out the hot tub and are ready to party.

Looks like the possible hurricane weakened so no worries there.
Chuckstar got me an MP3 player thingee for my car :)
More soon.
