"Twenty - fucking - Three!" -suicide blonde, The Number 23

You all did it!!! You made my dreams (well.. this one..) come true! Damn, i guess i should have made the goal a little higher!!!

Well, here i am, little 22 year old me, with 23 followers and 29 days until my birthday (the 27th)... shit.

It hadn't donned on me until i looked at the number of followers i had that i remembered The Enigma of 23... oOoOoOoOo!!!

If you haven't seen the Jim Carrey movie... see it. It's kinda crazy, but it's entertaining & it's beautifully done.

i'm warning you though... you won't be able to help it.. you WILL start adding up EVERYTHING... (my sister & i did it in the car on the way back from the theatre... it's kiiiinda creepy!)
the suicide blonde.
23 is said to be found in many places. numbers adding up to 23, letters being added up by their alphabetical position adding up to 23, historical events coming out to 23 (Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times) even down to the fact that humans have 46 chromosomes, 23 from each parent.
"be sure that your sin will find you out." -Numbers 32:23
(bible verse selectfully edited to prove my point, but then again, which verse isn't...?)

admittedly, i have realized that the number usually comes up when ones is looking for it. striving to find that 23 & receive a rush of belief...

For words, you write out the alphabet & assign their position numbers, (a=1, b=2, c=3, w=23!), then apply that against the letters in your word (S=19, a=1, r=18, a=1) and add them together (19+1+18+1=39). Now... if it comes to 23 then & there, you'll probably stop.. but.. if it doesn't, you'll subconsciously tell yourself that you have to keep working it....

my last name comes to 62. 39 & 62 = 101 so, from there, i could go into some craziness (which is shown in the movie... discrediting the theory a bit...) where i start counting up the letters in my name (11) & trying to work with that, but then you get into some nutso bullshit like

"there are 11 letters in my name, my name adds up to 101, 101+11 is 112, 11 times 2 is 22, i'm the first born, 22+1 is 23! OMG I'M CURSED!!!"

that's crap... if you can't get there on simple math... just accept that the system isn't perfect...

but.. what DID happen... is that i went the subtraction route.

drum roll...


jinkeys! maybe i AM cursed!

well.. i'm definitely blessed to have 23 followers!!!

&... as promised... a giveaway will be announced shortly (i just have to get organized!)

Thanks for reading everyone, spread the word, tell your peeps, tell your friends, tell your enemies, i don't care, just spread the LUV*

luvs all 23 of u*


2 to go!

Wow.. i make a goal & all of a sudden, people start actually doing it...


i guess i should probably knock on the proverbial "wood" as to not jinx it... but wow guys!

keep following, keep reading, i got a LOT to say & (if i do say so myself) a fun way of saying it.

2 more to go to reach my goal & EXACTLY one month to get there! If we get to something insane, like 50 by then, i'm totally doing a massive Give away!!! wooooooooooo!

meet my bffer nugget... jennifer

Today, my lady-face McGee & i had this convo (abridged version)

Jennifer: u have to read my blog in a few... i'm writing a post
Spanky: lol okkkkkkkkkk /
OMG! / awweeee / i'm like tearing up! / i'm such a sappy loser
hahahah / u like?
i luv u man / i commented / ur the bestest bestie there is
LOL awe loves u too

she had written this post on her wonderful blog Novelista Barista.

So, naturally, i HAVE to answer back with an adorable Bestie-luvs fest post for her. Now... i luvs all my friends, esp my super marvelous bitches, my D.A.B.s if you will... but Jennifer is totally my knees (if i were a bee)...

here is my girl crush, luvr of my life, totally in a non sexual way, hetero-life-mate, Bffer Nugget with fries LUVS LETTER to my bestie sista friend.

(yes, this is the same pic she posted... but it's the best one!)

We've gotten tats together, but our friendship is way thicker than ink & def more than skin deep. This chick has lived my life... only a little different. We've shared some of the most ridiculous non-stable minded (altered, if you will) mis-understandings that we both understood. We've learned to speak in an almost secret language that usually involves typos, mumbles & drunken slurs... but we always get the message.

We've vacaed to Nantucket, spent days on the phone & have never fought (yes, she said that already). We've made a sport out of long talks in cars, laughing until our sides are literally in pain and apperently squeezing the life out of eachother in photos.

We have jokes that date back so far we can't even remember the origin, the point, or even why it's funny.. we just know that it is. (jelly...?)

We meet the most random characters & make them our random friends for life. (j-down w/ bing! my new hubby?)

We've been asked if we're sisters... told obnoxious bar doodes that we're a couple & proudly stated our BFFhood to anyone that cares. (i've even told Jennifer many a drunken night that we should have a 10 year anniversary party in a year to celebrate our union!)

We can talk about the deepest of deep epic life issues... or nothing of importance at all...
"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words, but rather short easy words like 'What about lunch?'" - winnie the pooh
What's next for me & my jennifer? hmm, who knows. I plan on surpassing her Blog success with my own (whoop whooop!), she's trying to drag me to NYC to live, i'm trying to get her to go to Cali, & we both desperately want to drive across the states writing a book about our Adventures.

Read her blog, keep reading mine, & look out in the future for a ridiculous book of nonsense written on the road. (fingers crossed!)
"If I had one gift that I could give you, my friend, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you, because only then would you know how extremely special you are." -B.A. Billingsly
ya... we like it like that...

(i swear, we're not lezzies!!!)

luvs u lady*


100 proof..

100 things about liv'n, learn'n & luv'n to celebrate my 100th post!!!

10 things about 10 things to collaborate to 100 things that i swear won't be confusing once you see the lists! :o)

10 things that..

...i need in my life:
  1. a mani/pedi... like woah... bright red nails, luvs it. & a tan to go with it.
  2. a new tv since mine has an ugly colour issue going on where the white glows yellow. ugh.
  3. an apartment... like, stat.
  4. my car all fixed up. it might be running again, but i need the window fixed so it'll actually open, & it'd be great if the horrible blemish on the side from when my neighbor hit my parked car would be gone...
  5. a plane ticket to GA! (the strength & courage to fly alone!) to get to my friends Wedding in November. (i'm a b.maid, gotta be there!)
  6. a new book that i'm really interested in reading.
  7. plans for my birthday.. & a cute outfit. i want a beach side party & i want to wear a sick little Cap'ns hat w/ a navy or white or black lil beach dress or bikini... ooooo.
  8. time... i need more time.. lots of time..
  9. a new computer so that i don't have to write all my posts on my sisters computer or my work computer (bc mine is a dino & soo slow)
  10. a romance. might sound cliche, but i think that i've been painfully single for long enough. i need a semi-secretive, tryst of a romance, alla Chandler & Monica. Something that gives me butterflies, something that pops into my head first thing in the morning & drifts me off to sleep at night. Too bad you can't order one of those online & charge it to your plastic... boo...
...i need OUT of my life:
  1. these awful bumps on my arms (sorry, tmi?). i moisturize, i exfoliate, they don't go away!!!
  2. the next 15lbs to make my weight goal.
  3. all the clutter. there's so much crap, everywhere.
  4. this town. to be honest, it has it's ups, but most of the time, i'm sooo over it...
  5. split ends! i'm desperately trying to find a treatment for my hair so i can avoid choping it all off :o(
  6. dumbass boys that don't have any idea what they want... boo.
  7. cravings to food that ends up making me feel sick. i luv me some burgers & dogs, but when ever i get them at work from the greasetastic H.Patties, i never feel well the rest of the day. Bacon Egg & Cheese b.fast sandwiches are not a good idea. they are amazing while i'm eating them, but 15 mins later.. BLECH!!
  8. Friends that make you think twice. i think i've gotten a good amount of these people out of my life. my daily life anyway. but there are still some & they always seem to pop up at the shitiest times. i mean, i guess you can't cut everyone out, but i'd like to keep trimming the fat...
  9. the massive amounts of bug bites on my back from last night. ugh.. go away buggie bites!!!
  10. stress. i've been really good with not letting myself get over stressed. but sometimes it just gets to me... my parents always talking to me about this & that. things that i don't care about. its lke if i'm in the living room.. that means that i'm just sitting here waiting for people to talk to me, or talk loudly around me so i can't hear the tv or myself think. i can't take it sometimes. i'll go from being home alone & relaxed & happy to having my back in knots within the 15 mins it takes them all to walk in the house & start yapping before my mom is asking me if i took the dog out, & when & did i feed her yet, did i do this, did i do that. have i been sitting here all day, what are you watching, why don't you go outside, why don't you read a book... life you life like this. UGH! i need to move OUT OF THIS HOUSE! (sorry.. vent..... breath... wooo...)
...are my goals: (last year, in May, i wrote a post called *silly goals*.. let's see how i've done..)
  1. got a 2nd tat (a ship helm on my wrist)
  2. grew my hair long (but not as long as i want it... again... split ends...)
  3. did NOT sell any trucker hats, or even make any since then. The tally of hand embellished Trucker hats made by Spanky* stays at 1... & that one & only is owned by my girl K...
  4. have NOT met Shia... damnit... but apperently my buddy Matt saw a guy at my old gym that looks like him... i must find him. - also, if he hasn't yet, i think the same friend has or will meet Shia soon... damnit Matt... he's at Comic-Con right now... sooo jeal. (check him out at theflickcast.com & listen to his awesome PodCast which i hope to be a guest on some day soon..)
  5. i do now own something (else) Christian Audigier. I bought a very cute, very original ed hardy hat with a skull & flowers & rhinestones. too cute. luv it. i also now have about 76 ed hardy lighters... i'm verrrry trendy...
  6. i DID get a better job! In fact, this tuesday will be my 1 year anniversary at GigMasters.com!
  7. i have NOT learned to use my nun chucks... still working on that...
  8. i have NOT done much to build up my portfolio... this one will plague me until i do it.
  9. i have NOT really written any songs.. again. damn. all my writing goes to all of you...
  10. i DID learn to handle my insomnia! i guess the cure for that is getting a full time job that wears you the hell out!
...are new goals i'm starting now:
  1. take a class. (again, this all comes down to NO TIME). i drive past this place with voice lessons every day & i keep wanting to call & see how much they are. I want to take singing lessons, yoga, kick boxing, another art history class, an American History 1960's-1990's course, painting, photography, fashion history, fashion design, sewing... marketing. there's so much to learn... (i miss school).
  2. match my goal weight. (which is more about BMI than actual pounds.. so i need to get down to 22BMI... that's a healthy BMI to have & i don't want to boreder on the line of Overweight.)
  3. have at least $5,000 saved (in my savings, seperate from my checking...) by 2010.
  4. get a new computer (like the "i need in my life" question). i need to be able to work without "swipper no swipping" my sisters computer!
  5. read at least 5 books cover to cover by 2010. (i think i'll start with Curious George.. then maybe Cat in the Hat... haha, jk)
  6. Do something scandalous. (i have a secret list of things to do to live a scandalous life... these are going to be kept private... for now... but some of the tamer ones involve dancing on bars, body shots & skinny dipping...)
  7. work on my book. like i have any extra time to write something else, but maybe i can find the time. it's therapeutic... we'll see.
  8. photograph beautiful things. this does go with the "build up my portfolio" task that i haven't met yet... but it's important to specify. i want to capture things that are beautiful so i can remember them & share them.
  9. go on vacation to see something other than this little town. i've seen Vegas now, which is basically the opposite... but i want to see some other culture. I had planned to go to Australia in September, but... through unfortunate reasons, that's not happening...
  10. find someone to eat cheese with... y'know? (watch the video below... it'll all make sense)

...made me smile recently:
  1. my pup. when she's lazy in the morning, when she perks her ears up & follows ants around in the summer.. & even when she rolls in a stink outside. she's just too cute.
  2. this youtube video... JK Wedding Entrance Dance... it's wonderful.
  3. my new iPhone & all the convenience that comes with it.
  4. the dress i bought for an upcoming wedding. So Holly Golightly it's not even funny. i feel classy as hell in it! haha
  5. rediscovering the show Fudge (which i wrote about on a Manic Monday). Luke Tarsitano is just the funniest thing eveeer! i try to watch it on hulu.com with headphones on, but i blow up my own spot constantly when i LOL loudly in the office... oops!
  6. doing REALLY well in Wii Fit (especially the Ski Jump.. i'm awesome)
  7. realizing that if you belt out "Hey Jude" but apply it to yourself... it will make you feel better in any shit situation about life.. "na na na naaaa!" try it.. i swear it works.
  8. sixlets in movie sized boxes from the gas station. If you've never had sixlets, you are missing out. they're like semi-ghetto m&ms & they're awesome. you can never find them anywhere, but now my gas station has them in massive boxes... yesss.... :o)
  9. catching 4 yellow lights on the way home friday from work. if just one is lucky... 4 better bring me a goose that lays golden eggs! haha
  10. iPhone typos. Ok, so most of the time they're annoying as hell.. but every once in a while, you get a gem of a funny mistype that makes the conversation even better. I heard from AmeCakes about how her plans fell through & when i meant to say "awwwe", iPhone (which i've named Penny Lane) decided that "Sewer" was a more appropriate word, so... i accidentally sent "sewer". Classic.. now we have a new term thanks to Penny Lane.
...frustrate me:
  1. the walkway to my house. if it rains (which it has ALL SUMMER) there's no way to get from my car to my house w/o getting wet... even after the rain is over. The bushes & plants are so over growns that you have to walk either on the wet grass or lke an old crippled gnome scurrying in a creeptastic way to avoid the branches. (dumb.)
  2. the tiny scars on my finger from poison ivy last year. fuck'n gross.
  3. being sleepy. zzzz.....
  4. when tivo doesn't do its job... but that's not too common... tivo is a good soldier. working for the best cause.. my entertainment!
  5. writers block (& not having an answer for all of these questions!)
  6. headaches & back aches
  7. not getting NESN making it hard for me to see Red Sox games
  8. my sister talking a million words a min about how the world is so unfair in the highest pitch that literally makes my back twist up in impossible knots & kinda makes me want to scream "SHUT UP!"... but then she gets mad at me & tells me to "calm down".... ugh...
  9. bug bites.. little fuckers... i know i'm "sweet" but back off!
  10. not having the answers... i hate it that i don't know the answers to things. i wish that i could help other people with their problems in a way that would truly make a difference. I wish that i could help myself too... take a big dose of my own medicine... with a spoonful of sugar...
...make me jealous:
  1. skinny girls. i'm still working on my diet & trying to work off any extra weight, but i am def jealous of skinny girls!!!
  2. chicks who can walk around in stilletos with no problem! haha I'm working on it, it's def a goal to be able to wear heels out w/o a back up pair of flops or uggs in the car just in case!
  3. my bestie, Novelista Barista's blog & followers. I don't know HOW she does it. where does she find the time? She works just as much as i do! Lucky bitch has the time to write, comment, network, read... enjoy.. i feel like i'm always rushing, heart pounding to get what i want up. bitch started her blog in MARCH & already has over 100 followers & 120 posts!
  4. the gorgeous house that E is subletting on Entourage... i want it...
  5. everything about Sloan on Entourage. Emmanuelle Chriqu. She's beautiful, tough, awesome & her name is Sloan... plus her hair & clothes are sick.
  6. Daisy of Love - daisy might be called "trashy" by some people, & i'm not saying that she's the classiest chick in the world... (but i think that it's classier to own who you are than to rag on others... just saying) She's hot, she's rock'n & the biggest thing she has to complain about is which hottie to pick to be her BFer... cough cough FLEX IS SO FUCKING HOT cough...
  7. a certain friend of mine's recent fling with a hot boy with an accent... :o) that bitch... (hate u!!! so jeal!!!)
  8. another friend of mine picked up & moved across the country... yea... i'm def pissed thats not me...
  9. my buddy matt is in Cali at Comic-Con... :o( i wish i was there...
  10. my sister is going to college in a month... the college i wanted to go to when i was in high school. she's studying pop culture & media in art & other amazing wonderous magical knowledge full courses & get'n out of this house... uh-JEALOUS!!!
...i've been meaning to do:
  1. show you all this commercial... HA!
  2. talk up my SOCIAL NETWORK!!! - LivingVicariously.ning.com JOIN IT! HELP ME MAKE IT HUGE!!!! It should speak for itself... so GO THERE!!!!! it's a place for us all to go to vent, discuss & babble about the dreams we have that haven't come true yet or seem to only come true for others! puh-lease go there, pleassseeeee tell ur friends!!!!
  3. Keepsake Award - Thank you Jennifer-face for the award!!! I'm not sure how to hand it out. but i'm going to say that i'd like to give it to... (drum roll...) Elise at Without Rhyme or Reason! (i hope you don't already have one... no regifting!!!!) I gotta say, this blog is one of my favs. i feel like almost everything she writes could have been written about, by or for me. Good job Elise! Keep it up! (but i kinda miss ur blue butterflies!)
  4. MeMe Award - I just don't have the time or patience right now. but i'll do it, i swear... thnx jennifer.
  5. donate/sell/throw out tons of my old shit. I feel like i could have an entire etsy shop of crap that i just don't need anymore... i'll call it "Spanky's Over it..." haha an online yard sale... everything MUST GO! i'll sell things for 79 cents & barder for other peoples crap that's old to them but new to me. it'll be a revolution of crap changing hands... PACK RATS UNITE!!!! keep the junk alive!
  6. get involved with a charity - this is something that i wish more than anything i had the time to do. a few years ago i got about 89% of the way through the perliminary steps of planning a charity event & i think got distracted by work, school, boys.. y'know.. fuck'n life... ugh.
  7. paint. i have paints & a canvas waiting to be used for something great.. i just have to DO it.
  8. clean. goes along wth #5 but seriously.. it's just so exhausting.
  9. learn french. well, at least a little bit. i mean, i guess this is more of a goal than something i've been "meaning to do".... but i'll put it here. i have been meaning to do it... lol.
  10. put my new sheets on my bed. it just is such a pain to get those sheets up over the corners & you gotta like stand between the wall & hold youself up against the headbored & shift your weight around while trying not to step on your stuffies! ugh. pain in the butt!
...i'm looking forward to watching:
  1. Where the Wild Things Are. - the childhood adventure dream favourite has been made into a live action film. it looks amazing. AmeCakes & i watched the trailor the other day & new it was going to be amazing when we got chills. i'm so stoked. (watch the trailer here)
  2. Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland - ive writen about this movie already, but you should probably expect that i'll write about it again. I'm so incredibly psyched for this movie i can't even contain myself. (watch the newly released trailer here)
  3. Taking Woodstock - again with the chills... i can not wait.. plus... see if u can catch the super fast second of Jeffery Dean Morgan? ooooo. (watch it!)
  4. How to Make it in America - I've written about this before too. Bryan Greenberg is so yum. Kid Cudi too... There's no clip of the show yet... but there IS a clip of the concert that i went to where Kid Cudi came out as a suprise to the audience & sang "You Can Run"... awesome.
  5. Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 2 - it's just awful... but i luv it.. & i really want to know who "Big Poppa" is... i have a feeling that it's like... George Hamilton or David Hasslehoff.. haha.
  6. Jason Mraz & G.Love in concert - now... i haven't gotten tickets... or anyone to go with me yet... but i'm hoping.. PRAYING that i get to go. i luv them both...
  7. Melrose Place - yesssss.
  8. Ab Fab - American Remake of the BBC classis... i bet it's going to be teerrrible... Kristen Johnston & Kathryn Hahn will be amusing... i predict a train wreck i won't be able to turn away from.
  9. (500) Days of Summer - Zooey Deschanel & Joesph Gordon Levitt. they're both too cute & this movie looks funky & adorable.
  10. The Time Travelers Wife - sobfest. i'm looking forward to it tho. maybe i should wait for the dvd so i'm not sitting there in the theatre boo-hooing like a bitch! haha
...inspired me recently:
  1. LOVE - The Beatles Cirque Del Sole show. it was amazing. it was the most beautiful thing i've ever seen. it sounds stupid, but i really feel like it opened up a whole other world in my head. it was amazing.
  2. this quote i read on Novelista Barista's bloggie
    "I feel compelled to give some sense of escapism. I think its the reason I'm here." -m.jackson
  3. this bed by Shawn Lovell Metals...
  4. David LaChapelle's photography. His show Naked! is at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in NY, NY until September 19th... i want to go... real bad.
  5. Voodoo Problems. DJ Devious' rendition of Voodoo Child vs. 99 Problems Jimi & Jay-Z... uh-mazing!
  6. French Bull designs. especially this comforter set in pink paisley. ($175) & this platter in mulitidot, or as i called it when i was little "pokobot"! ($18)
  7. re-reading Wheetzie Bat (my fav book ever) has, like always opened my eyes & brain to the possibilities that could be mine.. if i get to it!!!
  8. the "backgrounds" app on my iPhone has constantly updated photos from Flikr. some aren't great, but a lot of them are awesome & some even breath taking.
  9. so many of the blogs i've been reading. i don't want to call out on anyone just yet in paticular, but i'm all about spreading the inspiration luv. I'm not totally aware of the rules of awards, but if anyone knows if it's kosher to just make one up, let me know!
  10. The Beatles - i know i started this section with *LOVE* & now i'm ending it with The Beatles... but ever since i saw the show i'm even more obsessed with the band than ever. i feel like for years i've been in luv with the early years... i'm undoubtedly hooked on all the older stuff now. everything. i hear the first note of Elenor Rigby or Day in the Life & i'm lit up. Hey Jude, like i said earlier, has turned into an ultimate pick me up song. Even stretching over into Across the Universe (the movie) & listening to Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite as sung by Eddie Izzard is epic in itself!!! i just luv it alllllll. it all teaches me that all i DO need... is LUV!!!
sorry this was so long everyone. trust me... it took longer to write than to READ!
this is the lobby at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas... this is where you walk into see LOVE... amazing, jaw dropping craziness the whole damn time. i want to go back.. right now.... please.

now... since this was such a looooooong postie... i thought that i'd reward you awesome readers that actually read thru the whole thing... i'm announcing my first ever *GIVE AWAY* but it's going to be a suprise... i will post a questionaire about this post sometime in the next week... if you can answer the questions, you'll be eligible for the giveaway, but this little super awesome 'ganza won't be happening until i have 23 followers - hopefully before my 23rd bday... the prizes will consist of various things i've mentioned on the blog in the past.. & i'm feeling generous... so tell your friends to come follow the blog so we can get this show on the road, eh?

luvs it*


I'd like a little Trophie..

I was browsing through Etsy last night (which can be dangerous to say the least) & i stumbled upon a menagerie of little luvlies.

The store "Trophies" is a literal Fearie land of things i think i might just need in my life. (now i just need a more disposable income so i can afford to frost myself in these trinkets of poetry and childhood words to live by).

One item in particular caught my fancy, so i promptly made it a favourite ("hearted it" in etsy jargon) and started dropping hints to my Mother & Sister (aka "yo... i want this... look, look, look at this, i want this... buy it for me... my birthday is in a month...").

*Fleur's Snitch Necklace*

how cuuuute is it? i just luv it so much. i want to wear it with a little olive green boho dress wonder getup.

i'm also in luv with many other things in her shop. She's got the perfect quote selections for her pieces.

This pin is too cute. I dont' know when i'd ever wear a pin... but if i did, i'd like this one. haha. This quote is one of my favourites from Harry Potter partially because of my appreciation of how they chose to incorporate it into the movie. I can't even read the words without singing it in my head like in the movie...

Also, we all know that i have a total obsession with Alice in Wonderland.

"Why is a Raven like a writing desk?" - a question the world will never have an answer to... & being kinda OCD... i'd usually go nuts not knowing... but there is such a beauty to the fact that there is no answer & even more given that the Mad Hatter & the March Hare don't much seem to notice... or care!
"Have you guessed the riddle yet?" the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
"No, I give it up," Alice replied. "What's the answer?"
"I haven't the slightest idea," said the Hatter.
"Nor I," said the March Hare.
Alice sighed wearily. "I think you might do something better with the time," she said, "than wasting it in asking riddles that have no answers."
Alice always explains herself in the most polite yet spaced out way. She feels the need to exlpain herself even when she has no idea who "herself" is at the moment - & i quite admire that about her.

"I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself, you see."

I also luv the other randoms in the Trophies Shoppe... she has necklaces requesting the reader to "make tea, not war" "make love, not Horcruxes" (ok, harry potter again, not random) & of course... the "flying fuck" necklace which she so politely blurred out for those with virginal eyes!

All current 83 items for sale in the shoppe are reasonably priced and intriguing. I hope to save up some lucky pennies (or maybe just pay off my bill from the car being in the shop) & buy myself a treat soon. (or maybe mommy will get me the golden snitch for my bday! every 23 year old needs a harry potter necklace... duh!)
I know that my sister would be SO jeal if i snagged this Ron Weasley finger puppet, we all know that "Potter may be Hotter, but I'd go Sleezy for Ron Weasley" & that the sis piece & i battle over the red-head (i mean, come on.. the actors name is Rupert Grint... that just ADDS to the luv factor!!!)

luvvvs it*

taking a mini break...

Ok... So, i started this whole "every day a task" thing to get myself motivated and have something to write about... Unfortunately, it worked, but i was realizing that i wasn't allowing myself the freedom to write about anything BUT my daily topics. (i may have taken on too much!)

yesterday, i skipped out of the too Hot Tuesdays! and opted to write about iPhone covers instead. I don't want to give up on my cute daily tid bits, but i might either cut a few out, or maybe stagger them a bit. Hopefully i won't get confused though!!!

You'll see a cute little pole on the sidebar... Puhh-leaaaase take a second to let me know what you think. I'd really like to know if i should cut one out and if so, which one!?!

Thank you!!!

luvs u all*


iPhone in transit!!!

It's 1 week away from my Corporate Birthday (& a week & a month from my life birthday...). Every employee at my job gets a phone (either iPhone or BlackBerry) on their 1 year anniversary & the company picks up the monthly bill! (awesome.) So, i chose an iPhone! Lucky little girl that I am, i was the last in the company to reach a year (newest hire, still the baby...) but, being the baby has it's perks! I get the 3GS! muahhahaha! I'll be the ONLY ONE to get the new super awesome sicktastic amaze-phone! whoooop!

but... my little iPhone can't be NAKED!!! So, like my Barbies, my teddy bears & my puppy... i'll have to buy it clothes!

So many choices.... i need help!!!

Which do you like the best?!

I was thinking of going pink... since my phone now is pink, my camera is pink, i like pink...

but, then again, green really is a great colour... maybe i should go for that one...?

I could definitely see myself with one of these cute little green phones... i like neon green, i like neon pink... but then i find the "shocking collection"!!!

one in pink, one in green, what should i do?!?! browse, keep browsing, maybe something will hit me that i REALLY love...

I can def see myself going pretty funky, a bit more fabulous than the others... less practical, but definitely closer to the Paris Hilton t-mobile sidekick i've wanted to own for 5 years...

(this one rings in at $314.04 - jinkeys!!!)

or then there are ones that are just down right gaudy as hell...

i don't even know what you'd DO with those ones... yikes...

I think that i might go with something sleek, simple & not mentioning any of the previous things on this post...

what do you think? i need your help, your opinions, your thoughts & your ideas! (plus, if you know any other fabulous options, lemme have 'em!)

also.. these were found by my work buddy Dave & just sent to me... i think they're pretty sweet... but i dunno how protective felt actually is... i dig the game boy one & i'm all over that old school Nintendo controller!

Manic Mondays!

Planning a summer event can be fun, more fun sometimes than a winter event, because you can't wait to fire up the grill, set up a few picnic tables a frolic around the night air barefoot and happy catching fireflies, or.. more likely... sneaking off into a dark corner or sand dune w/ a sandy haired beach baber...

but.. not ALL of the corners should be pitch black. Probably the best part of planning a summer party is the decorations!!! & what better decoration, than...


Paper lanterns, twinkle lights, candles & tiki torches everywhere with flickering flames in crystals strung from the trees. beautiful!

This amazing site LunaBazaar.com has everything from beautiful paper lanterns in every colour, size and price you can imagine, they have printed & square, cheap & more pricey. So many paper lanterns i can barely contain myself! They also have beautiful glass vases, these gorgeous water lily tea light holders, paper parasals, & even Budah statues for the karmically inclined.

I've been thinking about what to do for my upcoming birthday (hint hint, nudge nudge) & i can't think of too many things i'd rather do than eat a little, drink a lot & dance like mad on a beach with friends surrounded by

umbrellas dripping with twinkle lights, warmed by a bon fire, and only being able to see the stars reflecting off the water & the people around me being lit up by these gorgeous paper lanters.

can we say fuck'n magical? what a way to bring in 23. You can best believe that's what my Wedding Reception will be... i am determined. Also... this adorable site hotdateideas.com says set up some cutsie lanterns & have yourself a little late night picnic by lantern light... awe!

it's just another manic monday...

tid bits

My bestie, Novelista Barista told me to fill out this little survey after i said that i felt i wasn't writing enough about myself on MY blog. silly me. So, here's just a little bit to get to know the wonder that is Spanky. :o)

I'm also going to start posting a lot more about life & less about the finer things (aka my Material World & Superficial Powers)

Eight things I look forward to:

  1. This weekend
  2. Getting my car back
  3. Going to Ireland (hopefully) next year w/ my bestie jennifer
  4. Moving out of my Parents house!
  5. Having more followers & a successful blog!
  6. Seeing The Ugly Truth with yum-monster Gerard Butler (July 24th)
  7. The day that I can afford to spend my money on some new clothes (pre-planning fall wardrobe)
  8. Getting Skinny!!!

Eight things I did yesterday:

  1. Dealt with the complainers of the Entertainment world (aka, went to work as a CS Rep)
  2. Had margs at Viva Zapatta with some girlfriends (mango marg in mason jars... sounds poetic)
  3. Caught up on some Tivo
  4. Ate some Spinach & Broccoli Marg pizza. (yum)
  5. Drank 2 Red Bulls within 2 hours (peppy!)
  6. Read some of my current book, Edie: American Girl. (it's pretty good!)
  7. Bitched & Moaned about the humidity and the lack of time i have to do anything.
  8. Wore a brown dress with a pretty necklace (& parted my hair WAY to the side for a change.)

Eight things I wish I could do:

  1. Move. I'd like an apartment in NYC, a Brownstone in Boston, a Beach House in Nantucket & a House in Cali... to start.
  2. Fill a walk-in closet (like Carrie in Sex and the City).
  3. Have a clothing line.
  4. Read faster so that i could get through my books faster than 1 a month if i'm lucky.
  5. Freeze time for everyone but me. It'd be nice to have the ability to stop time for days to get to sleep, catch up on TV, write, read, & just be w/o deadlines, time & people bugging me!
  6. Direct a movie of my favourite book Weetzie Bat.
  7. Meet a nice guy (wow.. i'm surprised i didn't think of this until #7... oo, lucky number 7!)
  8. Have flawless skin & no split ends.

Eight shows I watch:
  1. General Hospital
  2. Greek
  3. Weeds
  4. Entourage
  5. Real Housewives
  6. 90210
  7. Gossip Girl
  8. Top Chef
I hope you all enjoyed knowing about my days, my dreams & my day dreams... oh & my day time soaps.. haha

Thirsty Thursdays!

Ok. so i was looking for a different recipe (much more summery) but i couldn't find the exact one i wanted... SO... next week maybe.

...because i spent so much of my blog hour (lunch hour) looking for that, i don't have time to write a very long post. but, thankfully, it's ok, but it's a VERY EASY "recipe" this time... (only three ingredients!"

Dirty Girl Scout Shot

inspired by the amaaaazingly yum cookies Thin Mints, the Dirty Girl Scout has a chocolate-mint flavour thats yummy, but also makes me a little nervous (don't have these if you've been drinking margs or anything acidic all night beacuse they are cream based... you've been warned!)

  • creme de coaco (mr. boston)
  • creme de menth (mr. boston)
  • Bailey's Irish Cream
  • shot glass
  • spoon
How to make it:
  • pour in some creme de coaco (a little less than 1/2 of the shot glass)
  • add the same amount of the creme de menth.
  • top off the shot with some Bailey's Irish Cream by pouring it over the edge of a spoon.
the first time that i had one of these shots was on my 21st birthday (where i, yes, little me, did 21 drinks on my 21st... whooot!) The DG was i think number... 17? maybe? & i believe it was in between a Kamikazee & a German Chocolate Cake... needless to say i didn't remember how it tasted until about a year later when i had one again & luvd it. mmm. (plus, not to mention the fact that mint & chocolate are like, the best flavours ever. ever.)

The drink can also be made as a cocktail vs. a shot, but i've never had it that way. I feel like that might be too much. i'll have a DG & finish my night w/ the Chocolate Milk of beers.. a nice, tall, phat Guiness. o man... i'm thirsty now!


plus a little failblog luv...

Wordy Wednesday!

This week we're going a different route...

normally, i'd devote a weekly post to a great mind with a nac for the written (or spoken, or sung) word. This week.. i'm dedicating the Wordy Wednesday to one word... one word based off of one sound... at the suggestion of my chickie AmeCakes, this weeks Wordy Wednesday is...

There's not much to say about the onomatopoeia other than it's probably one of the funnest words to say.. ever.

Here's the conversation that inspired the dedication:

haha, i'm not ready to recover just yet...
i'll need to hit rock bottom...

nom nom nom
HAHHAHHA i LOVE that word
