Waiting For The Fun To Begin

I was so hoping Mary would call me out of the blue and say “Dustin! What are you doing, I feel like dancing tonight.” Alas, it didn’t happen. Maybe I’ll get to dance next weekend, I’m not holding my breath though.

We are booking next years cruise this coming week. I’m so excited, I can’t wait! I’ll be counting down the days till then, which are in the hundreds right now. My friend Keith thinks his new roommate Amber may come with him. If she does this will be awesome because then I’ll have a dance partner. I love dancing, but I don’t dance alone, especially on a cruise. A bonus is that this ship is laid out the same way the first ship I ever cruised on was, and the club on this ship is by far the best of all four that I’ve been on. Fun times ahead, far ahead though. I can’t believe this will be my fifth cruise, wow. That makes me feel really old.

I finally got back to the gym today, and it looks like I’ll be able to get to the gym during the week a lot easier now. I have to borrow the BF’s car, long story why it was a problem during the week before. Not gunna get into it. Anyways, I’ll be exercising a lot more, yeah! I also loaded up on healthy food and will be back on the diet starting tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll see results.

Anyways, I think that is all I have to say today. If you have any suggestions for blog topics or questions, feel free to leave me a comment. Maybe it will inspire a whole blog post!


Just Some More Requested Photos

First up, Nikko and Percy photos, taken today. The first photo is Nikko playing in the dogs’ bed. The second is Nikko on his little ottoman about to be pounced by Percy. The final photo is moi and the boyfriend on the first cruise we took together I believe. We probably should have tried to get more sun, we look very pale in this photo.


Wretched Little Wilderness Animals!

At about 5:30am, Percy decided to chase Moo Kitty around the bedroom, waking me up. I eventually chased them both out.

At 6:00am I heard one of the dogs shaking it’s head, and thus their collar. I had to get up to walk them, they’d want to go to the bathroom.

By about 6:30 am I was back in bed drifting off to sleep when I hear SQUEAK SQUEAK SQUEAK coming from outside the window. It doesn’t stop.

I get up and bang on the window, thinking if it’s a bird it will fly away. It stops, I get back into bed. SQUEAK SQUEAK SQUEAK!

By 7:30am I can’t take it anymore, I go downstairs and sleep on the couch, where the two dogs decide to sleep ontop of me.

Whatever was outside the window squeaking, it better not be there tomorrow. I will find it and throw a rock at it!


Back In The Armpit Of America!

Drove back to New Jersey today. I’m home finally! I’m pooped as well, long drive on a hot yucky day.

Percy isn’t too much bigger, that makes me happy. I thought I’d come home and he’d be huge. He’s chasing the doggies all over already.

The house, of course, is a wreck. How I don’t know since I cleaned it before I left. I also have no food here, grrrrr. I’ll be shopping tomorrow after the gym, back on that diet tomorrow. Now I have the gym to also keep me motivated.

I had to turn the voicemail on my phone off. Fucking car salesmen are calling me twice a day now leaving messages. Maybe they’ll get a hint and leave me alone now.

I really don’t have anything more to say unfortunately. Though now that I’m back home and can see my friends more often, perhaps I’ll have some fun stories very soon.


Please Explain

Source: People Magazine

American Idol’s Taylor Hicks is People Magazine’s Sexiest Bachelor? Okay lets just ignore the fact that this photo looks completely photoshopped. Someone explain this to me PAHLEEZE! Then please explain why and how he beat out Jake Gyllenhall and Chris Evans?

Oh yeah, why is Kenny Chesney on the list as well? That man looks like an alien.


So The Novocaine Wore Off!

And I am in paiiiiiinnnnn! I did not eat anything but mush all day, yogurt basically. It was all I could take as I was numb till about 4pm. Then when the novocaine wore off I got hungry, I wanted food. Needless to say I cheated and ordered a pizza. I’ll get back on my diet tomorrow, for now I’m not in the mood to be watching what I eat. I finally go home tomorrow, so I will start back at the gym on Sunday as well.


You Drive Me Crazy

So I think I am the only person in America who did not watch Britney cry her eyes out to “sockless” Matt Lauer. I just couldn’t force myself to watch her. I will admit proudly that I actually like Britney Spears. Okay let me clarify, I think she makes some fun pop tunes that are great to dance to. Her ballads suck monkey balls and that Onyx Hotel Tour special on HBO? Click, I couldn’t stand it. I do like her dance songs and I loved playing her stupid videogame she put out a few years back. If you missed it, basically you were auditioning to dance with Britney and eventually got to face off with the pop-princess herself. It was basically a Simon says game, but I will never forget playing the thing and shouting obscenities at the TV and Virtual Britney as my roommate Danielle was on the phone with her mom saying “Mom, Dustin is cursing out Britney Spears.” Anyways, I like Britney, but she is dead to me right now. Dead dead dead until she drops that wife beater, socks with flip flops piece of white trash Po-Po K-Fed. DEAD!

I just got back from the dentist. I am SO HUNGRY but my mouth is numb all over. If I eat something I’m afraid I will do some serious damage to my tongue. I’ll just wait. The dentist was far less painful than it normally is. My mother went earlier in the week, perhaps she told him to double up on novocaine because he doesn’t use enough normally.

Driving back from the dentist I got a few giggles. First was from a commercial on the radio. In the DC area we have a food chain called Jerry’s Subs and Pizza. Well their commercials always feature celebrity voice impersonators talking about Jerry’s mouthwatering cheesesteaks. At the end of the commercial one of the “celebrities” always says “Celebrity voices have been impersonated.” Well the latest commercial features our current President George W. At the end of the commercial he says “Celebrity voices have been impersonation.” Hehehehe. The second thing that gave me a chuckle was a bumper sticker I saw on someone’s car. It said “Don’t pray in my school and I won’t think in your church.” Damn, it takes balls to drive around Virginia with that on your car! I’m sure someone will key that car or wreck it. I admit, sometimes I see bumper stickers on people’s cars and I’d just love to ram into the back of them.


Diet, TV, Neighbors

I made it through day two of the diet. While I am enjoying the food, it really doesn’t feel like a diet, I have to say the waiting three hours between carbs and non-carbs is a killer. I had a bunless burger today, and surprisingly it was a lot better than I imagined. Once you pile on the toppings and condiments you don’t miss the bun (that much). You do however have to eat it with a fork and knife. In one week’s time I guess is when I’ll see if the diet is working (assuming I’m doing it right and not cheating too bad)

I finally watched last week’s episode of “Hex,” as the show continued tonight. I like the show, it’s funny how many people from Footballers Wives are showing up on it though. I guess the same studio produced it. It took me a while to really get into, but I’m enjoying it. It took me awhile to get into Footballers Wives as well. If you’ve missed out on it, I’m sure BBCA will have a marathon this or next weekend, they always do. The show is about a school girl who is descended from a witch and inherits her powers. She also inherits her mortal/immortal enemy. It was pretty good, but it is a dark show.

Last time I was in Virginia I blogged about our wonderful (IE trashy) neighbors who wouldn’t cut their lawn. Well they still haven’t, the weeds and overgrowth is higher than ever. They did decide to hang some curtains in their one bedroom to keep peeping eyes out. Oh my bad, those aren’t curtains, it’s a beach towel. 😐

Speaking of ew, I have officially been my space creeped out. Ew!


Pretty Pretty Princess!

She’s back and all clean, which will probably last all of a day. Fortunately it only took a few hours, often she’d be there from morning till 3 or 4pm. Nikko was lost without her, he sat around and sulked and didn’t even want to go outside and play.


Pointless Blog Things!

You Belong in 1973

If you scored…

1950 – 1959: You’re fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 – 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule – oh, and drugs too.

1970 – 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you’re partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 – 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You’re colorful at night – and successful during the day.

1990 – 1999: With you anything goes! You’re grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It’s all good!

In honor of my groovy seventyness . . . .

You Are Jan Brady

Brainy and a little introverted, you tend to think life is a lot worse than it actually is.
And while you may think you’re a little goofy looking, most people consider you to be a major babe.
