Dawn Saves the Trees--with Zach Braff

God, I am being annoying with all the videos. Sarah B's post made me search youtube for The Baby-Sitter's Club and I found this gem. I completely remember this.

Kids Incorporated

Kids Incorporated 1991 Theme Song

This is the Kids Inc. I used to watch. I saw some of the Fergie ones, but mostly my girl was Love Hewitt. But watching this now, who knew that Eric Balfour was on here. You might remember him from Six Feet Under as Claire's crazy boyfriend or the first episode of Buffy as the first friend to get killed and become a vampire.
Oak Ridge Boys Elvira

Now, I only heard this song for the first time like six months ago, and I lurv it. The bass makes me smile every time. I don't know how someone can make their voice go so so low. Also the lead singer looks like the guy from Hall and Oates. Enjoy. Your Welcome.

Dr Bunsen Honeydew

I don't know if I've shared this before, but Brad bears a resemblance to a certain muppet:

Of course some alteration to the "action figure" was requried.

New Apartment

I haven't had time to write about my new apartment, and I still don't have the time right now! But it is all I imagined it would be. It feels huge and has a lot of natural light. Our cat, Merlin, loves it. He is actually my sister's cat and she is going to take him back next week. I might have to cry about that. He is the best cat I have ever had. He loves to cuddle and play and he looks like a lion (with crossed eyes).
So now I am on the look out for a new kitten. I am actually looking for two new kittens. I adore kittens so much, I want to stick their little heads in my mouth!

I have lived in my apartment less than a week and I already have ants! I haven't seen bugs for like three years so i was really creeped out by them. When I used to live in Ahwatukee (suburb of Phoenix) our apartment was backed up into a foothill so there were always cockroaches and scorpions around. But since I moved from there I haven't seen any bugs inside.

A few days ago I saw two ants crawling on the wall, killed them and thought, eh? But then two days ago, Brad poured a bowl of cereal and they were covered in ants. Thankfully I was still sleeping and didn't have to witness that. Still, I had not seen any during the day time. Then last night after going to bed, I got up to get a glass of water, turned on the kitchen light and there were like 15 ants crawling on the kitchen wall.

They startedd scattering, I grabbed some spray cleaner and paper towels and proceeded to kill as many as possible. I think they are coming in/living behind the cabinets. Of course the cabinets that I decided to keep our FOOD IN! I had dreams about this last night, it was not fun. My skin is crawling just thinking about this. Thankfully a sprayer guy is coming today to get rid of them.

I don't like killing insects, but for a really crazy reason. I am always scared that their friends are going to stalk me and attack me while I'm sleeping.

This is similar to the fear I had as a child when it came to my dolls and stuffed animals. I always kept them upright, face up, and talked nice to them. I didn't want them to be mad at me and come to life at night and attack me. I still can't sleep with the closet door open. Seriously. Crazy.

I have been reading this blog for a while. Sarah B. and her roommate started the original Cringe in New York. It is a monthly event where people get together at a bar and read from their old diaries and journals. As I can only imagine from my writing at that time, it must be hilarious. They just did a piece about it on Friday's Nightline, you can see it here.

Seeing as I was supposed to be unpacking yesterday, I of course got sidetracked and started reading notes from high school. I have saved most of the notes I received from friends and boyfriends from like 7th grade on. There are some decorated with swirly vines and flowers and some folded into paper footballs. It is so funny reading them, because I left a lot of stuff out of my journals and it fills in some of the gaps. But what I would love to read is the notes I sent in reply. That would be entertaining.

You know what's kinda sad, kids probably don't even write notes to each other any more, they just text message each other.

Dirty Briefs

In high school I worked at Target. One night while working in the men’s department I took a call from a man looking for underwear. He kept asking me things like,

“What kinds do you have? What colors?” I don’t know if I was naive or what but I kept going on,

“Oh, we have boxers, jockeys, briefs, and boxer-briefs. They come in many colors; white, black, maroon.” Then he started breathing weird and asked me about my underwear. I finally caught on and hung up. By that point in my life I was no virgin, but I really didn’t get what was going on until the end of the conversation. I was shocked, but oddly flattered. That sure did help to raise my self-esteem.

Saved by the Bell

Yes, I know all the words.

The Hills

Yes, I watch MTV sometimes. Usually it is just the reality shows about really rich people who think they are cool; like Super Sweet 16, Laguna Beach, and now The Hills.

I was watching The Hills the other day and Brad would not believe me that it was a reality show. The cinemetography is so amazing that it looks like a movie or at least a scripted show.

What I can't believe is that Heidi got that job as an assistant and then couldn't handle it when she had to get her boss a sandwich or stuff envelopes. She thought she would go straight to hanging out with Stars! Btw, who pays these kids rent?
