This and that-

I have a busy birthday weekend ahead of me. Hopefully getting my memorial tattoo today, and picking up my little brother for the weekend. Then dining out tomorrow and hanging with some friends. Then on my birthday, Sunday, I'll be going over to help a friend move into her new apartment.

Yikes! I'll try to post photos next week.

My BBT has been up for the past two days, not sure yet if I ovulated or not. I might have on CD32 cycle, and I might have on CD31 this cycle. Not holding my breath, trying not to get excited, but I would love to start a new cycle on my own again. Just saying. Here's to hoping.

Rocky Road to Motherhood gave me an award :) Thanks!

Here are the rules for the acceptance of the award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

We all know I'm terrible about giving these out, so I don't know if I'll make it to 15.

Seven things about myself...

1. When I get a new music album, I listen to it exclusively for almost a week. Until I know the songs, get familiar with them, the lyrics, and decide which ones I like the most. I think this drives my husband batty.

2. I am a geek (wait, you already knew that right?) I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Monty Python, anime... and I love gaming. Give me an RPG and I'll be gone for hours. Or days.

3. I collect fairies, angels, stars/suns/moons, trees- and now birds too. I really like bringing the outdoors indoors.

4. I kill almost every plant I'm given. I have two house plants now, and I think that's just because I can get by with watering them just once a month. Oh, and because I made sure the cats can't eat them. Ha.

5. Some of the best days of my life are when I get together with my husband and my friends and we geek out. I'm talking, Rockband and watching videos Mystery Science Theater style. Although sometimes we go out for picnics, and that's great fun too!

6. When I was younger I had my ears pierced. For some reason I thought putting new ear rings in would hurt, like my piercing did, so I wouldn't let them put new ones in when they took the old ones out. I think one of my older siblings told me it would hurt, haha. It was pretty traumatic, my sister pinned me down and tried to put one in. I remember screaming and my mom telling her to quit. So, my holes closed up and I didn't have my ears pierced anymore. I got my tongue pierced before I got my ears redone.

7. One of my cats taught herself to play fetch with me. I have never taught an animal to play fetch, I tried with my dog but all she ever did was catch the ball and drop it on the floor in front of her. Hahaha. And then here comes this self assured cat, and she teaches ME to play fetch with HER. I think that's hilarious. And ridiculously adorable <3

Now, an attempt at 15 blogger right? Oh boy, here we go!
Also, I don't really mind if they don't respond, repost, or have already gotten this once, etc... I just want to send some bloggy love. Some of them have been on my reader for awhile, and some are new to the list, but they all deserve this.

1. Dragon Dreamer's Lair
2. A Little Blog About the Big Infertility
3. Breeder Beware
4. From IF to When
5. Parenthood for Me
6. Semi-Fertile
7. So it goes
8. The Road Less Travelled
9. the road less traveled (not a typo, these are two different blogs)
10. Do I have to be a D.I.N.K?
11. For we are bound by symmetry
12. Journey to the center of the Uterus
13. Life in the Last Frontier
14. Negative Nell Flips
15. The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow

Well, I made it to 15. With that, I am out of time and off for the weekend.

Thanks, I will try to post it this weekend. said...

dude, my dh and i just sat down and watched a mystery science 3000 movie (pod people) last weekend. I had never seen one! It was the greatest thing EVER!!

I love RPG games but I refuse to buy them because I would never leave them alone (aka like my obsession with re-reading books)

I hope your temp stays up!

Thanks for the nomination, I've been a lazy blogger :)

Do I Have to Be a D.I.N.K.? said...

Melissa, you have to watch the Laser Blast one. It was hilarious!

We often pick movies that look horrible and we make our own commentary, it's a riot. I wish I could record it sometime, but it always just happens and we're having so much fun I don't think about it :D
