Current guilty pleasure: Wonka Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Bar. I have a hard time finding these many places with exception of a local Kmart. I love the combination of milk and white chocolate and they taste so good after being chilled in the freezer for a bit.

Current nail color: Sally Hansen Gem Crush 04 'Bling-Tastic' and OPI 'It's my Year'. Together it reminds me of Mermaid skin/scales/whatever the mythical Mermaids would have. Although saying "current" nail color is reaching a bit since I peeled most of it off and am too lazy to retouch it.

Current playlist:  Shannon and the Clams - 'Tired of Being Bad' / Shannon and the Clams - 'The Warlock in the Woods' / Shannon and the Clams - 'I Wanna Go Home' / Monster High Theme Song (I haven't been listening to much music as of late)

Current drink: Water and Coke, I'm trying to at least be even.

Current food: None and I'm starving.

Current Favorite TV Show: Archer. I still haven't watched the last two episodes of 'Mad Men' because I read what happened and I'm not prepared for it... :(

Current wish list: Hearse Purse, Black Leather Wedges, Snap Frame Purse, Striped hair bows, Ballerina Flats with Skulls, Nike Air Pegasus, Beach Crusier Bike in PINK, Eyelet Skirt - I'm such a sucker for eyelet, Dot Dead Gorgeous Operetta, Polka Dot Blazer, Cherry Print Tank, Rhinestone Top, Black and White Striped Dress, ASOS Pencil Skirt with Sequin Panel, Cherry Print Bathing Suit,

Current needs: "Need" is reaching a bit but more chocolate? Damn you Kmart and your limited hours. A job would be nice too (almost more than chocolate... well job would supply me with money that I could use to buy chocolate sooo... ), I'm getting pretty sick of sitting at home all the time.

Current triumphs: Plans, making a plan is the first step, right?

Current bane of my existence: The air conditioning in my car isn't working despite our efforts to fix it, it's perfect timing too since it has to go out in the hottest months of the year. Good going, Henry.... (Henry is the name of my car).

Current celebrity crush: Ralph Fiennes, I watched his episode of 'Inside the Actors Studio' and completely fell in love with him, he seems like such a sweet guy. 

Current indulgence: Sleep, The Sims 3: Showtime, Chocolate.

Current blessing: I would still have to say my sweet kitties, Halo and Hero.

Current outfit: Old Navy snowflake (yes, snowflakes in June) pants and 'Trek yourself before you wreck yourself' Spock shirt.

Current excitement: Plans and finishing my last library book so I can get more.

Current mood: Anxious/Irritated.

Current link: If anyone else plays The Sims and uses CC, Icia23 has the cutest stuff. Chic Coles, for room design inspiration. Hannah Bird @ Etsy, Custom Portraits.

Instead of going into a long wordy post about what I've been up to, I think I could just narrow it down to a handful of current obsessions, this is not to say that I won't go into a lengthy post sooner or later because I mean come on, I can't change that much.

My boyfriend and I saw Prometheus last weekend and we both really enjoyed it, even though someone in the theater let their phone ring till it went to voicemail, TWICE. A few people told me that the movie in fact sucked BUT... I kicked them in the shins and ran away so in more mature words "NOT UH". I recently rediscovered - there is no way I did not notice this before hand - the fact that at one of the local theaters near here that they have frozen yogurt so I was eating yogurt and watching a movie on the big screen at the same time, it was mostly heaven, except for the fact that I don't think I got through the trailers before the yogurt was all gone.... We also saw 'Dark Shadows' and although I liked it, I kinda felt like it started to drop off mid-way through the movie but I loved Eva Green as a creepy, bad ass witch in full on bat shit obsession mode with Johnny Depp (this is not hard to imagine...).

If and when I find these, especially Operetta and Ghoulia, I'm about 99% there will be jumping up and down, fake crying, and lots of squealing. I've even gotten into the cartoon, so yeah, this addiction is getting more and more serious by the minute. I've been searching the country side for them and haven't seen them anywhere :(

Yes, I'm still on my 'Roseanne' kick, especially the Halloween episodes - I wish I had a family that was as into Halloween as their "family" was. Come on now, how cute is this picture? I adore John Goodman and the expression on his face here is priceless.

Many people have tried to spread the 'Shannon and the Clams' love but only very recently have I decided to start scribbling Mrs. Shannon and the Clams in my notebook over and over again.

Last but certainly not least I've been in full 'The Sims 3' mania for days, my life is now currently been overtaken by the Simlish speaking natives. I just got 'The Sims 3: Showtime' as a gift and all I can say is look out time, I'm going to waste the shit out of you (so yeah it is an understatement to say that it has gotten worse). If you play The Sims 3, add me on The Sims 3 website, illivonray. There I go with the wordy post anyway...

First off, I want to thank Courtney, Laura, Allison, and Olivia for the extremely kind words, understanding, and support in my last post, I was truly touched by your comments! I am happy to report that I am feeling a lot better since my last post although I'm not quite sure why I thought there were fireworks on Memorial Day... I think I confused my holidays but fireworks make every holiday better, am I right? Sunday was a truly fantastic day, my boyfriend and I went for steak and joked around about growing goats, wearing Dorito bags as pants, and the secretive Operation: Mufasa. Yes, I know these are all inside jokes so it seems pointless to mention them to an uninformed party but I will forget them if I don't mention them dammit. After chowing on steak we went to Battlefield Park where we had to strategically walk around mud pits, bewildered at the heaps of horse poo along the trail, and picked honeysuckle off branches - I also tucked some behind my ear and then abandoned them after a few run ins with some bees. I took pictures along the way but my phone decided to flake out - does anyone else have an issues with their cell phone camera? Mine is constantly freezing, not saving pictures, won't load, etc... 

I also learned some momentous news while on our walk... my fiance doesn't like Pee-Wee Herman, I literally turned around in the opposite direction and started walking away, how can one not like Pee-Wee, how?! 

On Monday my boyfriend and I went comic book shopping and stopped for some yogurt at a newly discovered (and now favorite) place. We also went back to the park where we discovered the ticks were out in full force, see this is why I avoid going outside. I unfortunately discovered a tick this morning feasting on the side of my rib cage and have been skeeved out ever since, I don't know where that little bugger came from because I washed everything while in full panic mode. On Tuesday we went to the public library where I checked out more books than I should have, per usual, and had some more yogurt.

This 'Witches: The Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem' book has the coolest illustrations, I definitely recommend a read. 

This is the best combination - vanilla fro-yo with maraschino cherries, oreo cookie bits, and yogurt chips from Josies Yogurt! It is to die for, why didn't I go for yogurt today? I also got these two cardigans from Torrid on clearance for 50% off, I can't wait to wear them.

I have a lot of updating to do including some loot posts so I should  be posting soon. I hope everyone is having a great week.
