The weather is flipper beautiful today, I want to just roll around in the grass like a fluffy Pomeranian - but then it makes my skin all itchy and the neighbors start drug and/or insanity rumors (although I would not be surprised if the latter has already been surmised). I apologize, yet again, for that incident with the mayonnaise (I'm joking, anyone watch 'Archer'? Damn funny show).

I apologize, for realies, for my delay in posting - I almost typed 'postage' just then, been spending a little bit of time being a Pam Beesly.  I doubt anyone has seriously wondered but I figured I'd send out apologies in case anyone (uh...) missed me so, so much.

So to update about my knee, it is somewhat better, my mobility has certainly improved. The weekend after my last posting was not so awesome in regards to my articulatio genus, I ended up having to skip my wine tasting plans because I could barely move. The next day I woke up feeling a little better but made the mistake of over-straining myself and ended up in tears from the pain. It was nice to see Laurie, Jason, Troy, and Lisa. After the hike (I barely attended) we all watched a really bizarre movie, best summary I can give you is )) <> ((  which will make absolutely no sense if you haven't seen the movie but there is an ass referenced there - twice. My monkey and I stopped by a thai place where I was continuously distracted by BIGFISH (say it as one word dammit!).

Why are you posting pictures of large fish? You ask. Well, because I can. Rawr.

I ordered some really cute shirts. I have yet to wear the vintage 'Little Red Riding Hood' one but I will take pictures when I do. The other shirt I just love, even with full consideration of the dirty looks I received at the nail salon whilst wearing said shirt. I got a manicure and pedicure last weekend for the first time in a looong time and ugh - it was wondrous.

Zombie shirt for the win! I just love it. I would wear it to work if I could get away with it.

I went to the doctor that following Monday, who said I probably have a pinched nerve in my back (I live with constant back pain, I can't even imagine a minute that would go by without back pain, it is the suck) and tendonitis of the knee. She was really nice but I was a bit frustrated not to get any real solutions offered to me or at the very least some strong sedatives! No one will give me a prescription for strong pain killers, WHY? WHY??!

Is that all the new items I've gotten over the last er, three weeks, no. Definitely not.

Manicure with 'Midnight in Moscow' nail polish by OPI. You can't really tell but it is a brownish red color and I love it. I almost (went in, held it in my hand, sprayed my hair with Pink Sugar spritzer but decided $8.50 was a bit much for nail polish) went to Ulta and bought it. In the background is my new purse I found in a clearance bin from Kohls that I've gotten at least 3 compliments on. AND my four new rings, also from Kohls, the one to the far right has a purple stone in and the middle (fuckyou, well not YOU kittens :) finger has a black stone.

I got a blue maxi dress I've worn several times from Target that I didn't take a picture of but you can see the color in the background behind my pasty ass Hulk arm and pretty new bracelet also from Kohls. I tried on this green and navy dress that was quite cute but I put it back - it wasn't cheap enough for me. You can spot my boyfriends arm on my leg by the way - awwies.

My boyfriend and I have been to the movies a few times over the last few weeks, we've seen 'Water for Elephants' which I really enjoyed. The Waltz was amazing, what a fab actor. 'Source Code' which was mediocre. And I think there was a third... maybe I'm wrong. I guess not, my ticket stub collecting does not lie.

Very empty Fairfax Corner
Easter was a half day of work, which was awesome, although I think I just napped.

My birthday was April 29th, I turned 26. Yes, I'm not pleased about getting older, I mean there is no getting around it but I still don't have to be a fan of it. 

I had been talking to my boyfriend for months about what we should do for my birthday and around mid-April he started alluding to the fact that he had made surprise Birthday plans for me. "Don't buy that, maybe you'll get it later" or "Maybe we shouldn't go to this restaurant since we might be going later in the month", or (my personal fave) "You should catch up on your stretches my sex kitten." Okay the last one was not said, well not in those words, hehehehe FILTHY (ode to Darrell).

My birthday was heavenly, a minor set back with my Mom putting on her drama hat and un-mothering me on facebook over some stupid plans I have to pretend to enjoy going to every fucking (fucking, what? It's Say Fuck Thursday) year.

At work they gave me cupcakes, a Happy Birthday memo on my desk, and a nice card signed by the entire office (all 4 of them).

Friday night (29th) went to Maggianos with Darrell, Alexia, Amber, and Amber's boyfriend Carlos. Amber and her boyfriend were running a bit late so D & Z and I got ridiculously hyper and had filthy, FILTHY, conversations. By the time Amber (my boyfriends sister) arrived she leaned over and asked Jason "How much has she had to drink?" and I replied in a fit of laughter (and very flushed in the face) "NONE, hehehehehetee." We were the second to last people to leave. Alexia (Z) and I made aluminum foil tiaras and danced by the bar. For my birthday I got a dragon necklace, 'Nailbomb' cd, 'Shiny Toy Guns' cd, 'The Pianist' on novel (word play), Ten Little Zombies, The Perfect Insult, and Cat are Weird on bookage from D and Z, Beetlejuice action figure, and that talking Ken doll. Yes, I got a friggin talking Ken doll for my *cough* 26th *cough* birthday, yes I've chased my cats with it. It entertains me, he remains naked, thanks for asking.

Oh, oh my boyfriend got me epic cakes from Costco and also, joined Costco! Double win, well triple win since his silly ass bought two cakes. I love him <3 He is the best, honestly, I'm rarely sentimental but he is. I had such a good birthday all things considered. Amber and Carlos were so nice to travel all the way to see little (who you kiddin') birthday girl me, and D and Z were fun as fuck (It is still Say Fuck Thursday) as always.

Saturday was a complete surprise, we stopped by Rows. I wore my ASOS dress (new) that I LOVE and received many compliments over. At around 5:33PM everyone was urging my boyfriend to get a move on and we headed out. We ended up at a cabin in Thurmont (about 10-15 miles outside Frederick) that I LOVED. I was pleasantly surprised! He picked the best cabin too, the furthest off with nice views and a lovely screened in porch. We had sexy times and leftovers from Maggianos, I loved it! I didn't want to leave, I want to go back! Look at all those exclamation points, wow.

Cabin living room area. It had A/C and electric obviously.

View from the screened in porch off the cabin. We sat in the rocking chairs and listened to the rain, it was so relaxing.
 My boyfriend was afraid I would not like it because it was a bit rustic and I'm not much of an outdoorsy gal but I really enjoyed my time there. It felt so relaxing and calm. It was a nice change from my everyday feeling. I generally don't feel very calm (or clam. damn fingers, stop), obviously. Sunday was spent relaxing, doing a little walking, doing a little getting lost, and doing a little crying over not wanting to leave the woods.

Instead of my usual sign off, because I've already said way too much. I leave you with pictures we took of a lake in Cunningham Falls.

Thank the holy hot skillet tomorrow is Friday.
Watch Archer, it is hysterical.
Don Pablo's chicken fajitas are tasty (went there Tuesday).

Last thoughts, signing off.

I was totally wondering when you are going to post something new!!! So i guess i missed you :) Im glad your knee is feeling better but going hiking with a bad knee is probably not a good idea..also is the movie youre talking about "you, me and everyone we know?" because i LOVE that rules so hard! Sounds like you hada fun birthday! AAANND id love to see pics of the outfits you talk about :)

Aww, I'm glad you missed my entries, I'm feeling the love. I'm glad the knee is feeling better too, the way I had to walk was not sexy at all. Not that I make plans for all day sexiness, that would be a bit too excessive.

YES it was that movie, you know what I'm talking about. "Back and forth, forever."

I did have a fun birthday, I want to relive it over and over again.

I need to do that, must solicit the boyfriend to take pictures of my outfits.

I admit, it took me a bit to get into the movie but it certainly was memorable. Oh, I'm going to solicit him, and he is going to like it - willingly or not :)
