Brie....Cheese? or BDSM book character?

 Good Morning...it is 3 am...thank you Sky. I am not going to post this at 3am though. I feel like it deserves a proof reading when I'm more awake to make sure there are no ramblings about ducks or picnics or something.

This is my baby...her cow wanted in the picture.
So did my awesome pj's.
While walking this little monster angel this evening...no...morning? Oh who cares...I suddenly had that weird urge to write. I get this from time to time and the first time I remember getting this feeling was when I was like 11ish, maybe, and I decided to write my first book.
We will get back to this I promise. It is worth the wait.

I can't just grab a handy item to write down my sudden ideas. I sadly don't have a laptop or a tablet***, I just have my handy dandy Gateway Desktop to write with. So here I am now slowly waking up enough since I had to wait for this thing to warm up and my fingers have been twitching to get this out.

My name is Brieann but everyone knows me as Brie. My mother calls me Peanut and/or Jelly Bean but that doesn't count. I've run into a few people who go by 'Brie' but they spell it differently. Growing up I went to catholic school from K-8 and my religion teachers for some reason used to love to call me Brie Cheese.
I hated it. I still do.
Since blogging I've run across a few people who spell their name just like mine and it makes me happy to know I'm not alone in the world. Since I'm not alone in this world anymore I had to share this.

Brie(s) we are a BDSM book character. Yep, I discovered it tonight (or last night?) while trying to find some new reading on my Nook***. I was browsing through New Releases when I stumbled across my name. Brie. It is actually titled Brie on Display (Brie #7) by Red Phoenix. I became curious because to my knowledge I am not aware someone is writing a book about me.

I should have kept going.
I really should have.

I have a really weird sense of humor sometimes and now this is going to backfire on me.
I can tell.
In my life when people ask me for my name I usually go through this exchange:
'What's your name?'
'I'm Brie'
'Embrie?'
'No, my name is Brie'
'Marie?'
'No, Brie....like the cheese'

This usually helps and we go on our merry way. Now, because I now know there is a character with my name, I fear the exchange will go something like this.
'What's your name?'
'Brie'
'Marie?'
'No, Brie like the girl in the books who likes to go to Submissive Classes. It's a good read. You can find it in Barnes and Noble.'

Yep, my mother would be so proud.
***Side Note: Dear Mother, I know you read my blog fairly often even though you wont admit to it. I would really like a Nook Tablet for Christmas. Just an FYI.

It's Ok...Maybe....Not so much

Good Day Sir, I Said GOOD DAY!! OK, now that I've gotten that out of my system, I just realised today was Thursday and not Friday. This made me sad not because Friday means a three day weekend like it does for normal people but because this means I have to work four more days and for some reason this week I am not motivated at all. I think it is because the season is winding down and so much less is going on in my life. This results in me having less money. This results in me being a bit poorer than usual. I think today is just a grumpy day for me.

To try and get me going so I'm at least acting human we shall begin:

  • That I would rather be cuddled in my bed under a mound of pillows and blankets
  • That I want it to be Monday
  • That I'm grumpy everyone gets a three day weekend but me
  • That the above three have to do with me not wanting to work this weekend
  • That I'm really wanting that blue hooded scarf
  • That I've eaten more cupcakes this week than I should in a month (this is really NOT OK)
  • That I'm on my third cup of coffee
  • That I'm a bit grumpy (everyone gets a day to be grumpy now and then)
  • That this made me giggle because I know this applies to me
I hope the rest of you are having a better day than I and if you have any inexpensive DIY project ideas please let me know because I'm itching to be creative and drawing a blank.

ATTACK OF THE......Puppies?

Can someone please tell me the difference between the two types of Ramen noodles out there? I have yet to discover the difference and I REFUSE to read the nutritional content chart, which is probably where the difference is located.

Moving on after that random thought.....I had to be at work this morning at 7am after being off for two days. I do this to myself when making the schedule every week and I complain each time but I just keep doing it, oh well. I try not to talk too much about work on here because well, I need my job, hence me eating Ramen noodles....bleh. Work is pretty slow right now with the 'hurricane' that hit us the beginning of the week so I was scanning through my 2 1/2 days of emails and stumbled across one from my boss informing me that I needed to take a new training class as well as my staff. This is NOT how I wanted to really start my day but it took like 10 mins. The day didn't get any better but the time to go home finally came around and I was much happier.

My dog will be making a lot of appearances so you will get to know her well and how much she makes me want to rip my hair out. I day dream now and then about owning other puppies and one day I shall. So I'm going to share all the puppies I want to own, as of right now, with you:
Husky
 
Both a white and a black lab


and a Red Nose Pit

Now as you can tell I'm a fan of bigger dogs. I don't know why but I just love them big old cuddly things. I've always been a dog person but it went into high gear when I was about 12 and started walking dogs for extra cash. I then began living in homes while people were out of town to watch their dogs. My favorite dog of all time, besides my dog, was Nestle. She was a rescued red nose pit and was the most adorable thing to ever cross this planet. She sadly had lost her voice and couldn't really bark, it was more like a squeak, and she gave nothing but love. All the other dogs she lived with would pick on her and just run her over. She wouldn't care, would just sit there and wait for them to finish then would come and cuddle with me. I took her every place I could once I started to drive and she was the most well behaved dog ever. I miss her :(

I wish I could do this, and one day I shall, there is a cute site called The Shelter Pups <~~~~ Click the link. You can send them a bunch of different photos of your wonderful pup and they will then send you a custom stuffed plush dog. There are also some pre-made pups which you can buy for less. A portion of the proceeds goes to a local shelter which is always something that is needed.

Lazy Tuesday = Cupcakes & Shoes

Well today is Tuesday which happens to be my day off and seeing as I've been sitting in my apartment I felt like baking. I decided on cupcakes because for some reason I find these a lot more fun to make then just a regular old cake. I felt like being in a fun mood soooooo I got food coloring at my local wonderful Super Target.
 
TADA!!!! an army of hot pink cupcakes with fun blueish frosting. I'm now going to have to either find someone to take some off of my hands or set myself up a will power. I sadly don't think either of those two is going to happen and there is a chance I might have a stomach ache after the next couple of days. I've discovered with living alone that baking is one of the many downsides. This is due to the fact that once you have all this yummy goodness there is only one person to eat it. This just happens to be me.

 Now after baking my little heart out I decided to do something else a little fun. A few months ago I stumbled across this cute idea and just never went ahead and tried it. I figured since I'm a bit poor and don't have any extra income to spend on clothing or shoes I would revamp a couple of pairs of shoes I own. Erica has a cute blog called FasionlushXX and I found this cute DIY idea for my shoes. Here is my attempt at following her cute idea.

You take your shoes and wipe them down with rubbing alcohol. Take white nail polish and put a layer on. Then you take the color of your choice, I picked hot pink for these shoes because the inside is hot pink, and apply one coat You let it dry, then add another. Let dry again and then add on a clear coat to make it nice and shiny and to seal it in. Erica gives better instructions on her page plus step by step photos to help you along. ***Advice when she suggests a bigger brush, go with it.....it took a really long time with the little nail brush that is provided.***
The second pair I used a teal like green color which. I would like to say my color choices weren't influenced by my cupcakes but sadly I think they were. Oh well, I now have nice pretty shoes (that I hardly wear since I never really get fancy) and yummy cupcakes to help me get fat off of, haha.
While writing this I thought my dog was watching me type. I sadly realised that she is laying directly under the cupcakes in the hope that some how one shall jump off of the counter and into her direct view.
This is Sky, she is actually a human but we let her think she is a dog.

Ancestry.com, we might have to have a talk!

If you read my first post you know the two people who raised me were my mother and my grandmother. I'm working on a post for September that is going to be about my grandma Teresa because it is her birthday and she is the woman who made me realise that if I'm in a relationship that doesn't work that no matter how long it is going on for or how many things you have to bind you to this person, it is OK to get out.

While I was going research for the post I accidentally no... there was a computer glitch....  FINE...I went to Ancestry.com and decided to look up my family tree. I spent 2 HOURS on that site and called my mother at 10pm while she was trying to get ready for work (she is a nurse at a nursing home and works 11pm-7am) to ask her questions. I discovered my grandma was still awake (even thought it was past her bed time) and started asking her questions. My mother had to nicely inform me that she was trying to get ready for work and needed to get off the phone. She was probably thinking what the hell did she do to get some psycho child.

I politely hung up with them and continued to sit on the site typing and researching the best I could with little knowledge. The next day I called my mom to get every one's birthdays (day month year) and put them into each person's profile. TADA!!! More information!!! Then other people who are long lost relatives have done family trees so I got more information. My employees thought I was crazy and laughed about how I'm very interested in dead people. I love these dead people!!

I even texted my brother to find out my father's parents names and TADA MORE INFORMATION!. If you haven't been able to tell by now I've got a new issue and might need to make an appointment with a therapist soon....it is becoming bad. I discovered that I'm 1/4 Russia on my dad's side and that the people on my mom's side REALLY love the name John, James, Joseph, Richard, Vincent, Louis, Ruth, and Cathleen. I've decided if I ever have kids (Yes Nikki I said I might one day do this) that the above listed names will not be used. Ever. Even if my imaginary husband begs.

I've also been Dreaming of owning a hooded scarf and I found this adorable one on Etsy.com and you can even buy the pattern to make yourself. I've tried knitting and crocheting things and I fail every time.....but I can make a some what interesting looking scarf type thing that maybe a dog could wear. My mom informed me if I'm nice and she is feeling like I should own it (come on mother!!!) she will MIGHT get me one. I love you mother of mine.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and til next time blog stalkers xoxox

Sunday Social

Sunday Social


Happy Sunday Blog Stalkers! I know, I know....a lot of you are upset because tomorrow is Monday and you have to go to work. Today is like my Friday due to the fact that I am off the next two days...WOO!!! Since I'm in such a good mood I decided to do another little Link Up Party because I am just addicted to these things. Ashley and Neely have such cute blogs and are so much fun to read so I decided to Link Up with them, so lets get started on the questions
1. What is the first website you log on to each day?
Facebook and TMZ (what can I say I enjoy some gossip and drama now and then)

2. Give us some funny websites you visit that we need to know about
I try not to spend too much time on these sites because I really think I would never get anything done. So here are a few that I can get sucked into Hahas for HoohasDog ShamingDamn You Auto Correct

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why?
Ooohhhh this is a little difficult. I prefer Facebook because if I go onto Pinterest I would be stuck in that situation where I would never get anything done :(. I have ADD I distract easily, haha.....OH BIRD!

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why?
Instagram....I just haven't really gotten into Twitter yet but I'm trying to use it more and more. I also like when people post photos of food, makes me want to try new places.

5. Favorite YouTube video...post it!
soooo relate to it.

My friend Nikki and her husband introduced me to this guy....it can be very interesting at times, haha.

6. Biggest online pet peeve?
When someone is bitching about someone else and doesn't have the nerve to actually state who they are talking to.
Also, the 1:00pm going to have lunch 1:30pm at chili's having lunch 2:00pm finished lunch....YUM! 2:15pm my tummy hurts from the lunch I just had at chili's...look, we get it YOU WENT AND HAD LUNCH TODAY! Please stop telling me every detail, you just filled up my news feed and I'm now mad at you. ***Cue passive aggressive post about you without saying who I'm talking about.***

Well thank you all for stopping by and to any new readers I hope you enjoyed!! Have a great week everyone <3

August Story: Lost Spark

Happy Weekend Everyone! I was working on a post that hopefully will come out sometime this week and got a sudden message from my friend Crystal on facebook.
So I got a story for ya. Mike the recent guy was great, was as in not anymore. Bout 2 months ago maybe we really started arguing a lot. I registered it but didn't plan on making a move. Back story though Mike is the first guy I've had perfect trust with I never second guess anything he said. But I lost the spark round month 2 maybe. Why is the one trait that I want in a guy given to me and I'm just not attracted to him. Maybe in the beginning I was but only for a moment. Basically it was really difficult and hard for me to break up with a great guy and without a harsh reason. I'm used to being emotionally forced weather by him cheating, lying, being an asshole not because I think we really are on two different distant chapters in life. So I dunno if your trying to make this thing a positive stories only but I'm sure you can twist it to bring the light of it out. I dunno I may seem like a bitch but ya really do gotta make yourself happy before you can even begin to entertain the idea of making someone else happy. Annnnnd just like most girls don't have the time to put up with a player or asshole they also don't wanna put up with a child. You should have someone meet you 50/50 emotionally monetarily and physically love you briski.
This got me thinking. I hadn't thought about possibly featuring past stories of other people when they had to make the tough decision. It can be pretty difficult for people to look at this great guy and say to themselves 'I don't think I love them' or 'I think this spark has burnt out.' I think this happens in many relationships, it has happened to me. We either wait for them to make the move so we can say they are the assholes or we sit in this relationship until we learn to hate each other and it turns ugly.

I think when we are in a relationship, no matter how long it is for, we don't want to seem like we are going to fail. That if the relationship doesn't work out it means we either can't love, that someone can't love us, or we waisted our time with that person. I always think that any relationship we experience benefits us in the long run. We learn something from each person and discover new things about ourselves we didn't know before. Just because a relationship didn't work out it doesn't mean that you should give up or that you fail. I know that me personally I wear my heart on my sleeve and I give and care more than some people deserve. This gets me in trouble because some people aren't open to feelings and they either try to use me for one thing and leave, or just seem to talk/hang out with me until they find something else. I know I haven't found my one yet and hopefully (come on universe) I will run into him, but until then I go on dates, meet people, and just enjoy being me. I put myself out there and I leave myself open to the experiences.

We are expecting a Tropical Storm the beginning of this week and my 'sister' Megan is in a wedding show modeling dresses on Sunday. I wish I could go but sadly I have work and have to be here for hurricane issues with the hotel. I hope that if any of you happen to have any stories about a relationship that wasn't working and you were strong enough to get out, or how you became a stronger person after a break up, please email me or stop by my facebook page and share your story. I'd like to be able to do one of these stories a month.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Rain, Baseball, and oh....more rain

Good Morning Ladies and Gents! Welcome to any new readers and of course to the people who read everything I write. I know.....you just sit by your computer, laptop, iPad, or cell phone waiting with bated breath to see one of my new posts ;)

So I went to the Rays game on Tuesday and I decided due to the weather and possible traffic to give myself plenty of time. I live in Sarasota which takes about 45 to 50 minutes on a good day to get to the stadium. Traffic was a bit bumper to bumper and then suddenly cleared up.....till I got to the Skyway Bridge.

I don't think we are in Kansas anymore...actually I know we aren't
Pouring rain. I mean the type of rain where everyone, except some wonderful men and woman who don't give two shits about human life, go 25 on a highway that you can go 70 on. It was scary, that type of scary where you turn your music off for some reason like THAT is going to get you there faster. I of course got to the game an hour early and we didn't have to meet for tickets until 7, bleh. Bonus though, FREE PARKING! This makes me happy because it is usually $20.

I sat in my car till about 6:45 talking to my friend Nikki and decided to brave the pouring rain and flooded parking lot. I asked one of the guys who work at the park where Gate 2 was since that is where we were told to meet. He looked at me all confused and informs me this gate is closed and was only used as a exit. WHAT?!?! I sadly inform him that I was told to go there and made my way, now drenched despite my umbrella, to Gate 2....and wait....and wait....and wait. I walked over to a different gate and saw someone who looked like they work at a hotel and asked if they were there for our event. YEP! She called the person who put it together and we are informed 'Oh, I guess Gate 1' GAH! Now I have to walk ALLLL the way back over to Gate 1 and by this time I've given up on trying not to look like a drowned rate. After getting my ticket, heading down into the box, I found some of my co-workers who luckily also look like drowned rats. We are all chit chatting and discover a large number of us at one point were all standing in the rain by Gate 2, at least I wasn't the only one, and that I get free food and beer! SCORE!

The game was pretty fast, not a lot of action, but I did get a hug from Raymond the mascot, and he almost got into a 'fight' with one of the people in our group, haha.
My friend Nikki loves this guy....why, I have no idea.
Since the game was going so quickly I decided to head on home. To my surprise, guess what the weather was doing.....RAINING!!!! I like the rain, if I'm curled up in my bed reading a book, not when I'm trying to drive in it.

This week has been a great weather week *rolling my eyes*. Yesterday the flood gates opened up right when I was trying to get a new battery for my phone since mine couldn't hold a charge. I love when you know more than the guy trying to find the battery for you. Once home and safely in my bed cuddling with the cat when my neighbor decided to text me. My neighbor is a nice guy, a whore and flaky, but a nice guy.

I used to be involved with him, in a manner of speaking, and a month or so ago I decided I was getting tired of the situation. He evidently is not tired of it and almost every day I now get a phone call or a text begging me or trying to sweet talk me into letting him come over. It can be a little aggravating, especially when I finally told him the truth about my feelings and he keeps trying, but it is a bit flattering.

I'm thinking of doing another post similar to this one where I take your thoughts. The post I'm working on is about what you wish guys, or girls, would do or wouldn't do such as get their hair done more often, clean up the uni-brow, things like that. So please email me at brieannd.0220@gmail.com or come to my Facebook page and let me know what you think and if you would be OK being referenced.

Til Next Time.....

Me, Myself, and I post and some eye candy


So today is my day off....thank gremlins. I've been laying around all morning reading and have finally decided to get my butt out of bed and actually go do something. I am going to a Rays baseball game later tonight with my company, a fun little outing for the managers. We are sitting for free, well someone is paying, in the Papa John's Bullpen Box and I'm pretty giddy to get to go.

A few of my friends have done this cute little Link Up Party where you answer a few questions about yourself and get to know some other bloggers. I decided even though I did a little (50 question) blog I wanted to join this cute idea.

1. What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
I would most likely have gotten one of my dream jobs. I always wanted to be a rich animal rescuer that opened a nature preserve where no one would touch the land and try to build these giant houses that sit empty for years. I've always wanted to help animals and people so after I did I would probably become a very good therapist (maybe even a sex therapist ;) hehe) and move to where I was born, Manhattan, and meet a straight version of Matt Bomer

Swoon.....hehehe...yum


Oh those eyes.....


2. If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?
I would stop what I was doing and travel. I like traveling by myself because you can do what you want when you want how you want and you don't have to worry about anything. I would go to every place I had ever wanted to see and try new things and just rejoice in what is around me.

3. If a front page news article was written on you, what would the headline be?
'Crazy Bilbo Baggins Lady Crushed Under Posestions'
If you read my blog I compare myself to Bilbo Baggins a lot just because he is a hobbit, haha. I have a pretty stressful job and when I get home the last thing I want to do is clean. I've also informed people the best gift they could give me is a free cleaning of my apartment because I just hate doing it.

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?
I HATE people who write like thi$ @nd use da word$ like cray and such, GAH! I really feel like I want to grab them and put them back in first or second grade. It just makes me cringe.

5. What is your favorite chick flick movie?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE When Harry Met Sally it is probably my all time favorite. I also can't stop enjoying PS. I Love You or The Notebook
 
Well I'm off to catch up on laundry and maybe find some yummy sushi because I have been craving it since last week. 

Monday, August 20, 2012

Well hello Monday, I'm happy to see ya

Hello citizens of my blog! It is I....the person who finally got her coffee. I realised this morning as I excitedly sat in my car for the drive through to Dunkin Donuts waiting on my wonderful large french vanilla coffee that I have an issue. I am in LOVE with coffee and I probably shouldn't be.

I sadly can't drink it black it needs lots of cream and sugar in it for me to be happy. I'm really just filling myself with crack, but how I love my morning crack, haha.

Now that I'm done sounding like a crazy person we shall move on. I got to watch Hunger Games this weekend....I've seen it three times in 24 hours and I think this can also qualify as an issue. As we all remember my personality can keep me locked in my apartment and results in me waking up, going to work, coming home to take care of the dog, then watching Hunger Games, re-watching it, re-reading Fifty Shades of Grey, sleep and then the cycle continues. I want to take up a hobby but with a work schedule where I can work any day and at any time that is required it can hinder such hobbies I wish to do. One of my employees told me I should take up scuba diving, knowing my luck I would probably die or be severely injured.

The reason my Bilbo Baggins personality is bothering me is because I have 9 days off in October for my staycation and I'm probably going to be pulling my hair out on day 3. I live by myself so there is only so much interaction my dog and cat can give me. I'm probably going to either be a) in debt by the end of the staycation or b) that crazy person rocking in the corner from lack of human interaction. One of my friends suggested if I'm still single by October to try and have a date each night with a different guy so I can save money on food (This person is a horrible individual, but thrifty). I mean hey if that does happen then it will give me a whole bunch to blog about , haha.

Woo It's Fri.....nope sorry, this is my Tuesday

Good Afternoon the citizens of my blog! According to the rest of the world today is a Friday, but in my world today is a simple Tuesday. I've been day dreaming thinking very hard on things and wondering on what we ladies find romantic. I found a nice little web page that lists 50 things that are romantic (I don't know what is with me and the number 50) and I for some reason only liked one of them, #36 Brush her hair out of her face.

I think some very romantic things are sending a girl flowers while she is at work, kissing her on her forehead when you are around people, hold her hand, send her messages at random moments through out the day to just let her know you are thinking of her, and just rubbing the small of her back while relaxing and watching a movie on the couch.  

I asked some women about what they thought were romantic things a guy could do for them.
  • My Friend Nikki said things that her husband can do for her "I like it when Zack does little things like when he surprised me with champagne and flowers when I got published. He will rub my feet without asking or just do things around the house."
  • Megan said "Personally, I find the whole 'guy being romantic' thing overrated. He shouldn't have to go over the top. Special things are nice for really special occasions, but he should be able to do little things that you appreciate every day. And you should do little things for him too. Romance goes both ways in my mind."
  • One woman said she likes it when a guy makes her dinner. She also enjoys when they wake up next to each other and just look into each others eyes.
  • A woman who works at a hotel said, "Any kind of homemade dinner, even if it is just mac and cheese. If he is rich then dinner on a boat. Also, cleaning the house without being asked is always nice to come home to. When he buys video games to help you lose weight on your birthday."
  • My friend Hallie said just being a gentleman and put some effort into doing something.
  • Some other things that some women said is traditional things like flowers but better is when they surprise you in thoughtful ways that show they listen to you when you talk. Doing fun things that he knows the woman is interested in. Back rubs, cooking dinner, cuddling.
I did ask some guys what they thought would be romantic for him to do for a woman and one said, "pay for dinner, buy flowers, do foreplay...things like that." Another guy said, "Taking a girl into the woods and have a camp fire." This was quickly followed up with jokes about shower curtains, duct tape, shovels, and strong rope. An older gentleman said, "grab her by the hair and drag her into the cave." Well, hey if that works for these guys then good for them, haha.

Some things people don't find romantic:
  • walks on the beach
  • going to the movies
  • writing songs or poetry
  • one woman said nothing she find everything romantic cheesy
I think the one thing a man should take away from this is that we don't ask for too much. Men think that we are difficult and want too much to be happy but we just want little things. Things that make us feel special, like you listen, or you just care.

I'd love if you would write down what YOU think a guy can do to be romantic. I always love feedback and knowing what people think. <3

Birthday Cake Milkshakes are bad before blogs

Well good day kind citizens of my blog, I'm having that odd moment when too many things are running through my head to write about and I can't just pick one. This means I'm probably going to write about all of them and then wish I hadn't because that means I wish I could talk more about what I wrote about and this could turn into a book. I think I just confused myself on that sentence.

I've had three days off this week, go accidentally scheduling yourself off this way :). Day 1) I cleaned my house, I mean cleaned. I actually organized my closet, go me! I got some picture frames to put some photos in, I just am bad at hanging things on the wall so those are now just waiting for someone nice enough to do it for me. I then went and did my laundry at my lovely mothers house and ended up getting free dinner. Free laundry and Free dinner, I call that a win win situation. Day 2) I went and got my nails done by my new boyfriend Ricky, he isn't really my boyfriend but his hands are magical, and I don't think his name is actually Ricky but that is what his name tag said. Did some shopping for things for me too cook for later that night (I know me cooking GASP! but I can do it sometimes) and then I went and did the whole I got a paycheck thing. I waited and waited and waited and waited for my date to arrive. That is right ladies and possibly gentleman I had a date, in my house, oh yeah. See now this is where those multiple things running through my head are going to become an issue.......let us go back in time.....about a couple weeks.

Alright, so lets pretend this is a couple weeks or so ago....I got my hair cut:

Long Hair.....

and we cut off 8 inches



















So now my head feels light and fluffy....no weird comments about "oh ya your head is light and fluffy alright, it's because there isn't anything in there." Bahahaha. No. If you have really thick hair you know how good it feels to chop it all off. 

The girl who cut my hair has only done it once before and that was in April. She remembered me on the spot and asked me how my online dating was going. I evidently like to share this with random strangers, oh that's right I started a blog, der. I informed her I was taking a break from it and she replied with, "Well, if you remember I was engaged the last time I saw you and that has ended. So I joined Match.com and automatically thought of you and all your fun stories." I was shocked, shocked I tell you, that someone was thinking of me because I do/did online dating. So while she chopped my hair off I gave her advice and shared some more interesting stories from my little dating life.

After the hair cutting, I was bored (reminder I'm becoming Bilbo Baggins) and was waiting to hear back from the cute boy I went and had coffee with a few weeks back. The reason I was waiting is because he had finals and he needed to focus, I'm all for focusing. Hmmm....sorry side note, I had someone in my life who didn't say focusing they said fuckusing. Anyways, I was bored and decided to hop back onto one of the good old dating sites just to see what the new crop was bringing to the table. Low and behold the cute boy who said he was focusing on studying and who said he deleted his profile because he just didn't think online dating was for him.....was on the damn site. I would like to just say I did not confront him I just never texted him again. While I was on there browsing a nice, very handsome guy messaged me. He some how got to me before I put my profile on sleep and we started chatting. I'm all for meeting right away, might as well get it over with because sometimes you like the person more over the phone than in person. We did not do this though, we waited about a week and went to World of Beer. I thought we were hitting it off and I was being all cool and such (I was probably acting like a spaz because I get nervous around people I like). It happened to be trivia night and we agreed we would not play publicly but privately (get your mind out of the gutter perv). We failed, badly, he some how got more answers right than I did :(.

We had been chatting after that first date and decided on a lovely movie night which brings us to today, or more like last night.

Chips and salsa, home made pizza bites and brownie cupcakes.
He was impressed and I even got him beer. I'm just that awesome. So we shall see how things progress.

This is my day 3 of being off and laying around reading is a pretty nice way to spend it. Next day off is Tuesday and I'm going to a Rays game with my company, and we are sitting in the Papa Johns Pizza Box for free!

While I was writing this I happened to be listening to my new FAVORITE song. It makes me want to be a stripper, I don't know why but it just does. Don't judge me. It also makes me want to get into the fight sequence that it shows. So to the lovely citizens of my blog I want to share it with you <3

When Glee and The Sweetest Thing have a baby.....


Well hello bright shiny o so wonderful world, see I'm trying something new....pretending everything is amazingly awesome and maybe it will be so, how is everyone doing?! I couldn't sleep last night and then once I did go to sleep I had one of those weird dreams where you wake up and think 'wtf just happened?!'. It would seem that my brain decided to take my life and throw it into a romantic comedy musical where there were segments from When Harry Met Sally and He's Just Not That Into You where people gave advice or talked about their own relationships. I think I must have had something to eat or drink that didn't agree with me and caused this weird strange dream thing.

This got me thinking,....who do we take relationship advice from, I mean honestly. We usually go to our closest friends and then head over to our family. If this isn't giving us the answer we are looking for we head on over to the self help department and start reading books by people who don't know us telling us what we can or should be doing. Does ANYONE see a problem with this?! I'm guilty of this, I know I am, of both asking for advice and handing it out. I think the best advice I have ever heard is that if you need to ask how you know when something is happening then it isn't happening to you. An example is if you have to ask 'How do I know I'm in love' or even 'How do I know if I've had an orgasm' well then you either aren't in love or you have never had one and you are looking for someone to tell this to you because you can't admit it to yourself.

It always amazes me when I give advice on relationships and feelings. I mean seriously....how am I giving this advice, that sounds pretty damn good if I say so myself, yet I'm the single one?! I will never understand this. For some reason the single people are the ones the people in relationships talk to the most about these types. We sit there, single as can be, and give this awesome advice and then walk away thinking 'Wait, why am I still single?' Single people can't ask other single people for relationship advice though....that's like the blind leading the blind. 'How do you get a man?' 'I don't know, do you see a man around me right now?' See that is the type of conversation that happens....chickens with their heads cut off, sad.

Well, I guess we will see if I have another weird strange musical romantic comedy type dream/nightmare again tonight. If this continues maybe I can start writing a book or something......hmmmm how to write yourself as a character?

Good Morning Vietnam!...Wait....where am I?


Hello peoples, I'm making coffee right now so hopefully this blog will kind of sort of be understandable towards the end. This weekend I actually went and did something, WOOHOO!!! I'm slowly turning into a Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins will be my name soon if I'm not careful, but I think he even had a more exciting life than I did....anyways....

I've decided I'll let you get to know me a little bit more, I'm a fan of 50 Shades of Grey.....'Stow your twitchy palm Mr. Grey' 'Laters, Baby'...before I get distracted, so since I'm a fan I decided to have 50 random questions that I will try to answer. And we begin:


1) What was your favorite food when you were a child?
Hmmmmm, my mom could probably answer this better than me but I'm going to go with Chicken Tenders/Nuggets.  I hate to admit this but I'm still pretty much a fan, if I don't know what I want on the menu I get chicken strips or something along those lines :-)

2) What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
Hahahaha I can't find my iPod. I actually have two and they are some place in my apartment or my mom's house. Last time I checked I was listening to Korn and Skrillex.....so I'm guessing that?

3) What is one of your favorite quotes?
I liked it so much I put it on my back. It is from Shadowfever written by Karen Marie Moning who is one of my favorites

Hope Strengthens, Fear Kills


4) What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
hehehehe......I have an idea. I like reading outdoors and sleeping indoors.....but I can do either of those in both locations, so tada.

5) What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Cleaning...that's basically it. I guess vacuuming since I have a dog that just loses hair no matter what is happening.

6) What is your favorite form of exercise?
I like....hmmm....I guess swimming and riding a bike. We will go with that. If only there was a way to lose weight by sleeping :(

7) What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
I like and hate February. I like it because it's my birthday month and I hate it because Valentines Day is in the same month. I'm sorry but having a day of LOVE and then your birthday can be a bit much if you are in a relationship....you get jipped on presents, and the feeling of WOOHOO Love :(

8) What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?
Those moving sidewalks. If you have ever been on one you probably know what I mean. You start walking when you first get on, then you realise you don't have to so you stop. Then the sidewalk stops its moving section and yep, you are now face first on the ground. If you go to Cincinnati Airport then have a TON of these, be careful.

9) What is your favorite body part?
on me, my eyes. on men, i like their arms and eyes. I'm pretty simple, what can I say.

10) What sound do you love?
ummmm rain, it makes me sleepy

11) If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
I love birthdays, if you know me personally they are my favorite thing ever. I have to know the person to give you a better answer on what it would be like. In the past I've filled cars with over 100 balloons, I've decorated homes while people are at work...

12) If you could paint a picture of any scenery you’ve seen before, what would you paint?
Hahahahhaa....I can't paint so this is pointless. We will pretend though for the question that I can paint. Please hold while I channel my Bob Ross (If you don't know who he is, we might have issues) I'm thinking a majestic mountain, with a clear lake, and little happy tress saying hello to the sun. 

13) If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
Hmmmm, this is hard because 7 was fun but I had to wear whatever my mom wanted me to. I liked 13 because I was a 'teen' but I was waaayyy too awkward. 16, because you could drive but that's it. 18, you were considered an adult but nothing new happened except you had to get a job and pay bills. 21 was nice because you could finally drink but sadly bills and jobs once again. I'm going to go with 5...I had no cares about any of the above listed :-)

14) If you knew the world was ending in 2012, what would you do differently?
Ummm....I'd stop paying my bills, take all my money and go on a trip, and maybe go on a sleep around the world tour. This would be only though if someone could give me a signed legal document stating the world was for sure ending in 2012. 

15) If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
My mother. Period.

16) If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
Wow, ummmm I'm thinking I would like to see myself at 65. I would just want to see what my life can lead up to so I have an idea. 

17) If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn how to be a world class chef. I can barely cook and I'm only good at some things but I would love to be able to look at something and go hmmm I can do this. Oh and learn how to spell because I suck at it. Thank gremlins for spellcheck.

18) If you had to work on only one project for the next year, what would it be?
redecorating my mom and grandma's house. It has different stages through the years and I know my mom would love to see it not so....old?

19) If you were immortal for a day, what would you do?
bahahaha ummmm. Well I wouldn't kill anyone because I would only be immortal for one day and knowing my luck I would get caught. I guess jump out of a airplane, ride as many roller coasters as I could find, hang out with some tigers and other big cats, play human frogger. 

20) If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? 
Hahahah this has been one of my facebook status before. I think I decided I wanted to be called Duchess Lady Onomatopoeia, it's a pretty sweet name.
I'm changing my name, its becoming just dumb now....my name is Brieann, not Brianna, Brieanne, Brianne or Brian....I go by Brie, not Bre Bri Bry or Bree...my last name is Daw, not Draw Dow Dew Dawe or even Daowe....thank you all for listening and I will be taking suggestions for my new name :)

21) If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
Wow, ya know my coffee hasn't kicked in yet and I don't like these hard questions. Where are the ones that ask my favorite color or something?!? I'm an atheist so I'm thinking I would like to go back and find the guy named Jesus and ask him....wtf man?!

22) If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Pay off all of my debt, then help my parents (aka my mom and grandma) with theirs. 

23) If you were reincarnated as an animal/drink/ice cream flavor, what would it be?
What the hell?! drink or ice cream flavor? That means I want to be reincarnated and then BAM! dead again. Now I'm afraid to drink or eat anything because does this mean that those items can think and feel?

24) If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?
Why are men the way they are? I want a real answer non of this hokum shit about science and hormones.

25) If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Hmmmm....hard one, I have too many choices so let's move on shall we. Oh fine...I'm sure you are thinking I would want to be Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey I'd probably want to be Mac from the Fever Series.

26) Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?
Ummmm when I was younger I got Catherine Zeta-Jones. Recently some guy said I looked like some girl in a movie involving a president. I didn't watch said movie because he couldn't tell me what movie and which girl. 

27) What do you want to be when you grow up?
Oh this question knows me so well since I'm still not grown up. I'm not sure I've always been interested in being a therapist but I think I might go even more crazy than I already am listening to other peoples thoughts and feelings. I'd also probably want to blog about those people as
well.

28) When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I usually read a book, play with the dog, or hang out in a coffee shop

29) What would you name the autobiography of your life?
What the Hell Were You Thinking?!?!! 

30) What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
I'm thinking a lot of Backstreet Boys, some Korn, basically a lot of angry music followed up by some pretty Adele. 

31) Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
Wow, getting deep here questions....getting deep. I would say my breakup. I don't talk about it on here because this isn't going to turn into some kind of sad boohoo this girl needs medication and can't be normal type of blog. I thought my world was ending but I ended up being a better person and learned how to be the real me.

32) What was one of the best parties you’ve ever been to?
The party in my pants ;-) sorry, jk...or am I? Sorry....coffee and sugar are kicking in. I would have to say I like all the parties I've been to but most likely I love all the weddings. I'm a sucker for weddings, they make me all emotional. Please don't share that, people will think I'm weak :(

33) What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
Big Miracle I'm sadly admitting this. It was on Amazon for $.99 I had to watch it. 

34) What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
OK....we are getting deep again. I'm going to go with, and I'm still struggling with it, opening my gallon jug of Arizona Green Tea. It won't open! I need someone to help and I live alone and the dog and cat don't have thumbs. 

35) What was the last experience that made you a stronger person?
I seriously feel like I'm talking to a therapist right now. Please see answer for question #31

36) What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
Hahahahaha. I lied a lot. I also had this habit of saying, "OK I'll do it in a minute" and then never did. Oh to be young again.

37) When was the last time you had an amazing meal?
When I was in Soho, NY on my visit in September I went to this amazing Italian restaurant and got homemade pasta with a vodka red sauce with goat cheese and cherry tomatoes. I ate the whole thing 1) because it was amazing and 2) because it cost $45. 

38) What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received?
Hahahhaa, wow. I love my family, I really do even though some of them can get on my nerves but my aunt every year gives me the same wallet for Christmas. I am always afraid she is just finding the last one she got me and is giving it to me again because I have honestly never used it. The best gift I was ever given was my puppy Ebony for my 7th birthday. 

39) What do you miss most about being a kid?
Not having a job or bills. I also liked the fact that I could go outside wearing whatever I wanted and no one would judge. I have horrible fashion sense.

40) What is your first memory of being really excited?
What? I don't know.....this is dumb...moving on

41) What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
I got a cellphone because my mom wouldn't pay for my bill anymore if I had a job and because I had just ran up a $1600 phone bill. Don't Ask.

42) When was the last time you were nervous?
When I went to the doctor. I don't know why but I'm always afraid they are going to tell me I'm dying from some unknown condition and I have 2 days to live. I think this comes from watching too much House when I was younger. 

43) What is something you learned in the last week?
I learned that I need to pay more attention to my refrigerator. All my things became almost room temperature and I didn't notice. I paid for this little slip of unawareness. 

44) What story does your family always tell about you?
I don't know. We don't really do flash backs onto the past and have a story time. When I was younger I did always want my mom to tell me stories about me when I was even younger. I had a thing about myself as a kid, I thought I was the shit.

45) At what age did you become an adult?
Well....I'm not adult still. Yes, I'm 24, but I still act like a kid at times. So we will revisit this question when I do finally become a real true adult.

46) Is a picture worth a thousand words? Elaborate.
Wait does this mean I have to write a thousand words because I don't want to. This question can't make me. It's not like it can come to my home, find me, and make me answer this with a real answer. 

47) Where’s Waldo?
Wha....? Ummm well I recently saw something online that said Waldo was the ultimate photobomber. 

48) The best part of waking up is?
There really is no good part to waking up. I always just want to go back to sleep. 

49) How now brown cow?
*blank stare* really person who wrote this questionnaire, really?

50) Whasssssuuuupppppp?
Wow, just wow. This is how we are going to end it?

Well, if you actually read all of that....I applaud you. Congratulations, you now know a whole bunch of random shit about me that might possibly one day come back to bite me in the ass. Hopefully my next post wont be as random or creepy as this one was. Who am I kidding, it might be worse. Til next time blogstalkers....
