So...... up until about 3 months ago I had been to the restaurant "Chilis" maybe once in my life. However, I think in the last 3 months I have been to Chilis at least 10..maybe 15 times. And unlike any other typical restaurant, I am still not sick of this place. It's basically magic... It can fulfill any craving.

Recent meals consumed from Chilis:
-Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers (dipped in ranch of course)
-Cajun Chicken Pasta (i've consumed this one on numerous occasions)
-Steak Fajita Pita (Different.... but good)
-Chipotle (or possibly cajun) Chicken Sandwich
And...one must not go to Chilis and not order the Chips and Queso.

This whole new world, aka Chilis, was introduced to me by Casey (shout out...#2)...to whom I will be eternally grateful. This place has become a staple in my life... I really don't know how I went so many years without it.

However, in hopes to branch out a little bit... Casey (shout out... 3) and I decided to try Applebees one night. Bad choice. That place did things to my body that were unnatural. It made me feel like I did when I heard Kelly Clarkson singing recently at the halftime show of a Dallas Cowboys football game... Ironically she sang "Never Again"... 2 things that should never happen again: Applebees, and Kelly Clarkson's vocal chords exploding. yikes. (see below...and you'll understand.)

3 weeks of school left. happiness.

Oh yeah, Thanksgiving came and went. Kinda low key this year. 4 out of the 7 siblings were home... I guess that's the majority, but it just didn't feel the same as it had in the past...maybe because on Thanksgiving we ate tacos (prepared by my lovely mother)...although delicious...it wasn't the typical Thanksgiving feast...that came on Friday. So... I had to wait an extra day...it was worth it. Turkey=my friend.

I saw August rush last night...a greatly anticipated moment. And I must say, I think it makes an appearance in my top 10 list. Kinda predictable, but that didn't matter. The acting, the music, the story...perfection. Not to mention Keri Russel's hair was great, not as easy task.

I'm kinda tired today.... I was up til 3 watching random things on youtube...don't ask. all I have to say is....


time for men's chorus.

Regina George: Oh my Go(sh), I love your skirt! Where did you get it?
Lea Edwards: It was my mom's in the '80s.
Regina George: Vintage, so adorable.
Lea Edwards: Thanks.
Regina George: [after girl walks away] That is the ugliest f-ing skirt I've ever seen.

-Mean Girls, 2004

So, I haven't written in a over a month. get over it. Life has been crazy, well not even that crazy, in all honesty, I'm just lazy.

I love the above quote. I really think that certain people should watch this movie and learn a lesson. Being fake gets you no where. It's a fact. Be yourself.......no matter who you are around. If you think someone's skirt is ugly and you want to say something about it, tell them it's ugly...don't pretend you like it and then talk to all your little friends about how ugly it is. Granted I'm not perfect... but this is something that I'm really working on..and most of the people who are reading this should probably consider working on it too.

ANYWAYS...enough of that. Today was an interesting day at work. We were short 2 employees (who shall remain anonymous) which is always a pain in the bum to have to deal with. I'm the type of person who unless I'm ralphing every hour...I go to work. I understand that not everybody is this way, and that's fine. I just hate having to pick up the slack. It's bad enough when one person is gone, but when two are gone..... don't even get me started. BUT the three remaining part time employees had a great time. I survived work thanks to Ashley Cooper's "Power Women" cd. Nothing like a little Whitney Houston and Mariah to wake you up in the morning and get your juices flowing.....(that phrase always freaks me out, but it fits nicely here) It was also quite a lovely realization that it was payday today.... this means a trip to the FYE used DVD section is in the near future. I can't wait.

I went to the football game last night. it was an experience. I really don't mind football, and at times i've been known to actually enjoy it. Last night though, I just couldn't get into that football vibe. I was sitting in front of a guy who i swear should have been on his deathbed...as a cow. "gooooooooooo(voice crack)ooooooooOooOoooooOOoo CoooooOOOooo (voice crack) ooogars" it didn't help that he was leaning forward and screaming in my ears. when i turned around to look at him, he wasn't what I expected...he was actually a human. thankfully around the third quarter we shuffled our seating arrangement and my brother in law ended up in front of the moaning beast. Another tragedy about BYU football games (or any other event/place on campus) is the lack of Dr. Pepper. I had to buy a Diet Coke...(which actually for a while was my drink of choice. However, thanks to Casey Moore...shout out....I was brought back to the wonderful world of DP.) I didn't realize how gross Diet Coke was until last night. I almost cried, and didn't even drink all of it. What a waste of $3.50.

6 more days until I allow myself to listen to Christmas music. yee.
