This McDonalds is kind enough to bring your food to your table. What nice service! The tray was put in front of my face. Snack wrap and milkshake.
No straw. No napkin. As the "waitress" walked away and asked "may I have a straw?"
Her response: "you can get one over there." And walked away.
So much for good service.

Kailyn: I have to start off with her because last night I was almost in tears watching the end of her story. It made me so, so, so remarkably sad. She was trying to take the high road and they were both doing the right thing getting their arrangement legally justified. But they are 19 year olds and subject to massive hormonal mood swings. It was sad to see both Kailyn and Jo lose all sense of "getting along" and go verbally abusive on each other. I wish Kailyn would just shut her mouth and take it because whenever she says anything, Jo seems to unleash a whole new verbal assault on her. Not that she shouldn't try to defend herself because she should but it doesn't matter. Even if she was to say "you are right", he would still call her worthless. I had my hands to my face, shaking my head in disbelief that these two people are so immature but given the responsiblity of raising a child. Jo is a horrible role model for his son. No woman should be talked to the way he talks to Kailyn. I hope Kailyn knows that she is worth more than that and will not accept that kind of treatment from future men in her life. Jo's parents should be coming down harder on him instead of how they were wasting their time trying to parent Kailyn.
Chelsea: I'm sure we'll find out during the reunion show that this breakup with Adam didn't last and I'm sure Chelsea welcomed him back with open arms but I was proud of her. The way she broke down saying that she has raised her daughter alone and her friends said "you are a strong person" was moving. I just hope she believes it. Adam is a complete douche. I just wish Chelsea's dad would have higher expectations for his daughter, like finishing high school. Second place for hilarious line of the night: "This present is from step-daddy Megan." HILARIOUS.
Jenelle: There really isn't much to say about this girl. She has no self esteem, much like Chelsea. 1 step forward, 8 million miles back. I can't even imagine how stressed out her mom is over everything that has happened. First place for hilarious line of the night:
Jenelle: I'm in jail
Barbara: What are you doing there?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I know it shouldn't be funny but it is and I'm sure that is how you would respond because of shock.
Also..."I'm going to give him two weeks to change and then I'm gone for good." Sigh. Hopeless. Janelle is hopeless. She will lead a life of crime, homelessness and never, ever connect with her son. And now that she has been arrested for beating the snot out of some girl on video, I don't see great things for her.
Leah: I love that they got married at Coonskin Park. Maybe Corey just isn't good at eye contact but I kept thinking "LOOK AT HER" while saying your vows!!!!! They are cute and I hope they can make it. Statistics are against them. I got very teary eyed when Corey's dad was talking to him before the wedding. That was really sweet. Their parents seem like such nice, supportive people.
I'm looking forward (kinda) to the reunion show next week although I know it will just make me more angry. I don't know if I can handle another season of these girls and their mistakes. They have to get a little more mature, right?

I realize that I am no award winning photographer and these pictures aren't anything to really write home about but it is fun to enter them into the fair and see them hanging up on display!

Survivor: I didn't think the producers would allow it to happen. Just a few episodes in and Russell gets voted out AND loses at Redemption Island. A little something about R.I.: I thought it would be a turning wheel. A person gets voted off, goes to R.I. and waits for the next person to get there. They battle, the loser leaves and the winner goes back into the game right away. That isn't how it happens so how does this work? Will this go on until the merge and then the person gets back in the game? I really thought that if Russell won, they would say "Okay, RI is over, Russell is back in the game" because no way would they let this goldmine walk away without even being in the jury.
But they did and I am thrilled. I have NEVER liked Russell. In all three seasons, I have thought he was a complete jerk. He bitches and moans when he hasn't won the game but hello dude. NO ONE LIKES YOU. He doesn't understand that Survivor isn't 100% about scheming and burying socks, etc. It is about getting people to trust and respect you because THOSE are the people who win. I'm glad his team lost the challenge on purpose to get him out. They had to do it. And now I can watch Survivor without being irritated!

This bedroom was home to unused furniture and the cat carrier and the rockband drums. These were the pictures I took last year so in the last 10 months, it also became home to Christmas wrapping paper, stocking stuffers and empty boxes. We moved all the crap out of the room and prepared for the painting.After much debate while standing in the paint aisle at Lowe's, we picked a color. We were kind of scared. This wasn't a color that could be described as muted or light. It is not a color that blends in with the wall.
Pine Forest from Valspar.
"We aren't going to drip, right?" says my husband (who painted the window and closet on accident.) We opened the window and shut the door (so kitty wouldn't run in) and after my husband vetoed listening to Britney Spears, we dipped the rollers in the paint tray and got to work. A couple hours later (including a trip to Lowe's to buy more paint) we were done.
We love it. I love it. I'm crazy about it. I can't wait to decorate it and make it a space where our guests can crash (but only for 1-2 nights). I was afraid it would be too dark but it isn't. It is lovely.
We know that we want to do a few accent colors, white being one of them. Light colors only as we do not want to overwhelm the dark colors of the wall. Any suggestions? My husband has a good eye for design but I suck at it.

View to the right, looking out at the water. Pretty sweet view for a $100 room. Thanks AAA!
In the daytime. The weather was pretty crummy. I bet on a sunny day, it is a gorgeous view!
Looking at the ocean from Sunset Cliffs.
The Mormon Temple in La Jolla. Again, very beautiful when the sun is shining and there aren't clouds in the sky. *GOSH...blogger really sucks at uploading and spacing pictures. Get it together blogger.*
