Pit stop

The good news is I'm on my way to visit CP in Huntsville. The bad news is someone started to die on the flight. We took a detour in Memphis and now we're still waiting. I'll keep you posted. Or I won't. Just a heads up.

UPDATE: the dude had asthma. Nerd.

UPDATE 2: on standby for an over-sold flight. At least I look good AND I'm comfortable. If I don't get on, I'll have to stay the night in the Best Western Airport East Hotel ATL. Let's hope it doesn't resort to that.

UPDATE 3: I am at the hotel. Boooo.

UPDATE 4 (and final): I made it to Huntsville and it's beautiful.

Cinco de Crumb.

It was Crumb's golden year this year. 05/05/05 turning 5. Good job him. He made it this long without me running him over. Too soon... ALWAYS MOTHER F*****S!


So without further adieu, Crumbapolooza--

Crumb relaxing:

Crumb hanging out with friends:

Crumb enjoying a stogy, aka bull wiener...:

And, as always, Crumb bushed from a hard day's fun!:

I love you Crumbothy Danger Moore!

You're the bomb, and an awesome friend.

My mom got a helicopter stuck in her head.

It was hilarious.

Not as much to her as it was to me and Pops.

Again, super funny, but simultaneously tragic.
No, only tragic.
Not funny at all...

I turned 24

And like Jack Bauer I took matters into my own hands.

(Beached baby seal)

I save some sea wild life.

Took my pug on a walk.

Made my own dessert.

Injected that shit with some filling.

Renamed NASA. You thought it wasn't possible, it is. Boom.

Note: I do not even watch 24. I just let Courtney talk to me about it 24/7, so I basically watch it.
Second Note: My friend Jasmine made me this NASA poster last year, but I'm still super stoked on it, so it's going to go up every year until NASA gets the hint.

Cookie and Crumb

Milo and Otis ain't got shit on my dog and his second best friend.

Me being his first best friend, doy.

That's me petting his ears, not forcing him to look at a camera.

Uh oh.

I need a new black eye shadow. This one's cursed.

Tell me that doesn't look like a skull. You can't. My eyeshadow is possesed by a dead baby or perhaps a sloth.

Spring had sprung

And it looks good.

At the risk of sounding douchey, the smell of jasmines really do bring me back to my Arabian nights.

How I spend my time at work 3

Data entry

Custom House in Avila has this special where you get a free meal on your birthday month. So when the birthday specials get used, I input them into the database. I get to see their address, birthday, and even what they ordered. Most of the names are boring, but some are not:

You've got to be joking me right?!

But no, this dude turned like 50 and ordered like a steak and wine.

Word to the wise, if your name is Richard Caddy, do not go by Dick.

How I spend my time at work 2


Quick background- we have a dishwasher. There is no set cleaning schedule. So on occasion, you don't know if the dishes are dirty or clean. Here was my solution.

With the help of my beautiful assistant/apprentice, Larissa from the Compass Health, Inc. Art Department (that's the Inc. part of Compass Health), I made some handy dishwasher labels.

(Front, or really back)

(Back, or could be front)

These were the prototypes before I acquired Larissa's expertise.
Because nothing says dirty like Old English lettering, and nothing says clean like cursive.

How I spend my time at work 1

Making rubber band balls.

So anyone who has ever made a rubber band ball knows, it is a long and patient process. I started this ball with ONE tiny rubber band. Be impressed. And this is it's progress at Day 2 weeks or something. There are probably like 30 rubber bands in there. I actually have no idea, and am notoriously awful at estimating, but just stop. Let yourself be impressed. I included the .5 mechanical pencil for a little perspective.

Here's the ball as of March 29th. I used a clip this time to show perspective. Boom, way bigger.

Okay, so it was the small clip. Still, just be impressed. They are hard to start. It is very similar to a gum wad. It's just not going to grow over night.

Crumb ate a gopher

And I've never been prouder. And like a good little boy watching his girlish figure, he purged that shit up. Look I don't know how many calories a gopher is, but better safe than sorry if you ask me. Oh bulimia jokes. Never get old. Anyway, even if he wasn't battling his own inner demons, I don't think his little tummy could handle digesting the skull of this miniature mole-like mammal. Plus, like they always say, better the skull come out the front than out the back. They don't always say that, but I'm sure it is easier to vomit a cranium that poo one out. Like the opposite of an arrow. Do not push it through!

As you can see if you look closely, this is the little punks head, complete with eye and extra throw-up.

What, not enough? What, you want more?

I had to quit. I was about to ralph a rodent myself.

Geocaching with Jerm

Don't know what geocaching is? That's fine. I'll help you figure it out. Just go to this link: and type in "what is geocaching?"

Still don't know? Here are some pictorial clues:

1) He's looking for something....

2) That's obviously the wrong place.

3) We've found something.

4) Success!

The real success was Jeremy wearing cargo, sorry caching, pants. And as always, my Huckleberry Finn shorts.

Beach day with baby and friends.

This kid sure knows how to chill...

But he also knows how to party.

Another sign of a good weekend

Thinking this is super funny.

Sign of a good weekend.

She got bruised, I got a bad nights rest and a straw stuck up my vag.

Uh Grace, battered women of America called, they want their arm back.

And also Grace, good job on remembering how you got the bruise..... Not!

On another note, thank you me for the 90s jokes.

Tsunami warning in Pismo.

Watch out Pier Gifts.

Note: this picture is kinda old.
I just can't help but live a good natural disaster though.

Baby C is still way sick!

Getting stoked about the moon at such an early age!

Being fearless on a fence.

Already too cool for his own age. (I assure you that can is empty. By me. Not him.)

Being Cuter than a Who from Whoville.

Looking like an adopted baby from China.

The Amazing Moores

My dad and I are applying to be on The Amazing Race. It's his favorite show, and after he came and visited me in the Middies, I was convinced we could do well! I can calm him down when we are in chaos, and he can carry my crap when I'm being fragile. Both of us are analytical, adept, love adventure (life is such), and with enough effort and good luck, I think we could get pretty far.

The process to apply wasn't that hard, but we took it seriously. We had to each complete a 13 page application, a recent photo of the two of us, individual passport sized headshots, proof of passports, and my favorite slash the pain in my butt, a 3 minute video explaining, with personality, why we should be on The Amazing Race ON DVD.

This was all due together in El Segundo, CA by 5pm tomorrow. I had to overnight it this afternoon. Now we wait and pray. If we don't make it to be a semi finalist, we can't ever apply again, at least together not as the same team. So wish us luck! Or let's start making out own video as teammates, because I am getting on this show!

Shasha's in the army again

As of January 30th, Shasha is back in the Army.

The deets I know:
  • Right now she is in South Carolina in some Southern Carolinian city for 25 or so days.
  • Then she is going to Knoxville, Tennessee. Apparently that isn't just Jackass's name, but a city as well.
  • In Knoxville she will train and prepare to leave for Afghanistan or Iraq. Also she will attempt to steal my best friend.
  • There is a slight possibility that she will be stationed in Knoxville instead of leaving overseas. Enshallah.
  • She is supposed to be gone for 400 days, with 2 periods of leave in between.
  • Christian is here with me, mom, and dad. He goes to day care, 2.3 days a week.
  • She is doing well enough. But she misses home. Of course.

2010! This year's gonna suck way less then 2k9!

Sorry guys, I understand it is already 1/12 over, but let us quickly address that it is a new year! It's 2010! We're into the tween years. That means we get to watch High School Musical marathons, listen to the Jonas Brothers, complain about how being the tallest girl in elementary school sucks, and how we are like so ready for like the junior high boys. Raaandooom*.

Now that we've formally said hello to 2010, we can greatfully say au revoir to the worst year yet.

I don't know about you, but 2009 was a pretty crappy year, and I think most of America would agree. I hear there was something going on with the economy, a new president is not really living up to expectations, gay marriage is still illegal, etc etc.

Last year I made some pretty attainable resolutions last year, and I don't think I completed one!

  1. Stop procrastinating. Not really, although I don't have that many deadlines anymore.
  2. Cook. Nope, only bake. I'm getting rear good at that though!
  3. Get into a size 0. Egh. I was doing well pre-coming home. When you can't cook, you don't eat anything but carrots, when mom cooks you eat everything and don't run.
  4. Read the classics. I think I read a total of 5 books this year. A few of which were "the classics." Baby steps.
  5. Read the newspaper. Not exactly, but that's not my fault that physical media is dying out! I do keep up on my news blogs and crap.
  6. Forget less. Still constantly losing my keys.
  7. Save more money. I am selling my eggs for the 4th time. Meaning I have blown through 30 Gs. So, no, I have not saved more money.
  8. Stop biting my nails. Current nail lenght- nubs.
  9. Get smarter. Would require me to quit drinking.
New, New Years Resolutions for 2k10:
  1. Budget better. After these eggiweggs, save save save!
  2. Get to a size 2. 2010- size 2, 2011- size 0.
  3. Read 1 book/2 weeks. More realistic, yet challenging.
  4. Get a job. Not rubbing old people's feet.
  5. Move out. Sounds easy enough...
  6. Bag a babe. A babe. Not a dud.
  7. Wear more heels and lipstick. Generally dress cuter.
  8. Be nicer to Shasha. Sisters should be friends.
  9. Write everyday. Blog, script, shorts., the works.
  10. Study everyday. Languages, AFOGT, the works.
  11. Exercise everyday. Outside, inside, yoga, running, the works.

*Said like a tween, not like what I was writing was random!

Crumb is the reason for the season!

Now I know I've been absent for the past few weeks, there were holidays, I was gone, it's a new year, whatever, so here is the whole collection of my Christmas Cards I sent out with Crumb. Sorry they're such low quality, but scanners be scanners.

Sacreligious- maybe, offensive- probably, creepy- kinda, genius- absolutely.
