One day I'll roll in a Volkswagen Thing

Volkswagen Thing - front

For some reason, when I was a kid I thought that the Volkswagen Thing was the most amazing thing ever. They are ugly, came in crazy day-glow colors and looked like someone high decided to modify a Jeep. It was love. I don't see them very much these days but when I do, I get excited. I've been telling my dad for years that if VW could do something for me, it would be to bring back the Thing. I currently drive a Rabbit and I love it. Though, I can't help thinking that I would love to own a Thing and name it Cousin It. Ahhh.... I dream big sometimes.

Leave a party if...

I've been to a lot of parties that have devolved into messes. I'm not a fan. I don't prefer to go to parties that don't include people I'm related to.

Vomitting from others
There's a good chance that I would feel obliged to help clean up the mess if it was one of my friends that was sick or it was one of my friends house.

Whether involved in the fight (or shouting match) or just present when it starts. It's best to head out either way. Then you aren't the crazy yeller OR the observer.

General presence of crazies
I'm just not a fan of crazies.

Slackered BeP

So I haven't updated in some time. I've been LAZY. I got my flickr sorted out. My Getty pictures are there (well the ones that I really liked). I am going to upload some stuff from last weekend with my mom. I was a lazy ass and really only took pictures of Star, Charlie and the puzzle I spent my down time putting together. It was one of those weekends away. I didn't take a picture of the cake I made but you can find the recipe here. My cake looked like that minus the powdered sugar on top. It tasted AMAZING and made me remember why I love butter. Last night was my uncle's 60th birthday. The party was at my cousin's fabulous house in Valley Village. A good time was had by all. I love my family they are so great. This morning I woke up bright and early to go see my dad and his best friend before they went to the LB Grand Prix. I'm currently comtemplating going on a photo adventure outside. It's beautiful out there today. I actually think I'll go do that.

Sorry this was so scatter-brained...but I'm rather scatter-brained.
