IN SPIRIT

I went to my uncle's grave today. I haven't been there since wednesday when we left the burial. Before I left his grave I asked him for a rose. It's probably the only thing I've gotten for my birthday and it's beautiful.

OLD

Laura, I owe you a dollar. A couple of years ago I started giving a dollar to the first person that wishes me a "Happy Birthday". My friend Priscilla wished me a happy birthday at like 12:15 but when I checked my voicemail I got one from Laura at 12:01. Therefore you win by default.

*SMILES*

My week may be shitty but at least Jason Mraz's new cd is good.

I should sleep. The mass and burial comes bright and early.

OH WELL

I only have a week of internet left before I cut it off. This means that there is so much for me to do. I still need to download like a million things and get my computer updated before I get back. With the funeral now and my bitch boss that won't let me off of work I don't know where to find the time.

Oh well. These things happen. I need to not be selfish right now, I need to not worry about my birthday coming up. It wasn't that important to anyone else anyway so it shouldn't be that important to me. I need to be with my family right now. I can't even imagine what he's going through.

This is my cousin, Kevin. He's my uncle Michael's youngest of 4. They just told him this morning that his dad is gone.
He walked up to my mom and said, "My mom tells me that my daddy is in heaven."
My mom was almost in tears. "Yes, He is."
"Why?"
"Because he was sick, Kevin."
"They couldn't make him better?"
"No but, they tried their best."

*BREATHES DEEPLY*

Time of death 3:30Am. Rest in Peace, Uncle Michael.

DELIRIUM THE ASSHOLE

This is why you should never ask a delirious Liz to give you advice. This is how it turns out.

TheShizzyLizzy: i think that you should grab him by his balls and just tell him to quit toying with you and let you know what he really wants
TheShizzyLizzy: but if you don't grab him by the balls you will never know
kizmet6: haha
TheShizzyLizzy: literally
kizmet6: i'm such a puss
TheShizzyLizzy: I had to do that to a guy one time
TheShizzyLizzy: it worked
TheShizzyLizzy: if he genuinely likes you he will make you back off his nuts and if he doesnt like you and just wants to sleep with you he will tell you call him later that night or something
TheShizzyLizzy: things could turn around after you sleep with him though...he could want you for himself
kizmet6: dude liz
kizmet6: i could never grab his balls
kizmet6: lol
TheShizzyLizzy: lol
TheShizzyLizzy: that's because you don't have any laura.
kizmet6: precisely

*CLEARS THROAT*

When I say "hoe" I know that it's really spelled "ho." The only reason I spell and say "hoe" with an e is because of the whole concept of being a tool...or garden tool in my case. Get it? Alright. I think some people needed that clarification.

On another note, I didn't work out today. (!!!) I know I suck. That's the first time I've missed in the last 3 weeks and it won't happen again. I promise. Back on the horse tomorrow.

THIS HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH

So I have to tell you about my wacky neighbors. Not just wacky though, they're fucking weird. It's so hard to explain but I have a few examples.

Example one: The really fat guy that lives there well he's just fat, like old Don Vito fat + or - a few. Anyway, he sits outside on his porch naked. Like he covers up just the bottom half of his body with a sheet but trust me he doesn't wear anything under. It's so fucking raunchy.

There was a little girl, that lives across the street from him, playing outside one day and he flashed her his penis. Yup. He just pulled open his sheet. The little girl is probably scarred for life now...not even I want to see that much fat.

Example two: The woman that lives there will come outside and scream at the top of her lungs sometimes. She'll talk to herself. Anyway one night I was sitting outside on the porch talking on my phone waiting for Jennie and the woman came out. She was talking all sorts of nonsense and I just kept on talking on my phone. Then I hear her yell, "Sitting on your porch, talking on your phone!" What the fuck? Why yes, thank you, that's exactly what I'm doing.

The other day my sister said that she was outside holding a dog like it was a baby. It wasn't even something the size of a Chihuahua. It was something the size of a full grown pit bull. She was carrying him around, rocking him and talking to herself again. I need to get out of this place.

TAKE THIS TO YOUR GRAVE

So this post is to down right bitch. Just to give you fair warning so if you don't want to hear it I encourage you to turn away now. Click on a different link. Click on kelly's link...she always has something interesting to say. Let me also not forget to mention that she writes very well.

So Fall Out Boy played on Jimmy Kimmel tonight (last night...whatever.) Let me just say that it seriously pisses me off. It's bad enough that I had to see them on fucking TRL a few weeks back with their new single but I'm afraid that it's only getting worse.

I don't think that this is as bad as when Jimmy Eat World came out with "The Middle." Most people didn't even know that Jimmy had two full length albums out prior along with a couple of Eps but I did. Maybe some of you other music nazis that are very protective over your music know what I'm talking about. Maybe can you see where I'm coming from.

I keep telling myself that this can't be as bad as the Jimmy thing because Fall Out Boy isn't as good as their old CD anymore. Come to think of it Pete (the bassist) is starting to do that thing with his hair again. He's doing the trendy shit and it makes me want to kick him in the face. What the fuck is that all about? Is it possible that Fall Out Boy is selling out? Maybe. Maybe just Pete.

They've become one of those bands where their crowd is nothing but a bunch of fucking abercrombie & fitch girls that dress up for shows and make sure their make-up looks okay just in case they get to suck one of their dicks. "Oh my god he is like so cute! Oh I love him." Bitches just don't know.

I knew this would happen and that this would get worse so I don't know why I'm bickering so much. Jennie and I had to leave the "pit" when Fall Out Boy played at warped tour because we couldn't handle all of the screaming. I'm pretty sure they were pulling each other's hair. You would've thought that someone was selling limited edition barbie dolls for half off or something.

I just have so many feelings on the issue. The first time I saw Fall Out Boy was probably the best show that they put on. The worst show I've seen from them was the last show I saw at warped tour. I wish Fall Out Boy had the same attitude that they had when they made their dvd. All I'm saying is...*whines* why can't I just have old Fall Out Boy back? The Fall Out Boy that didn't do the trendy shit. The Fall Out Boy that wasn't on MTV.

As a matter of fact Fuck MTV. The only time they actually play music is late at night when all the normal people are sleeping. It's called Music Television not "Reality-shows-about-the-same-fucking-thing-all-the-time-with-a-few-twists-at-times-
with-house-from-the-70s-or-people-that-have-to-date-moms-to-get-a-date-or-choose- someone-to-date-based-solely-on-their-room" channel. They should call it Lame Television. *breathes* I fucking hate life. I fucking hate MTV more. I've just now decided to boycott them.

There. I think I'm done with my rant for now. However, I must warn you. There is a chance that I will be doing this again sometime. I saw Hawthorne Heights on MTV last night. You could imagine my reaction. I was outraged! I almost broke my toe from kicking the entertainment center.

EEP!

This is going to take a lot longer than I expected. So yes I have an issue. I have too much music on my computer. Yes there is such a thing as too much. You know how I know this? Well, when I discovered Itunes (thank you, kelly) I had a good amount of memory left on my computer. When I got more into itunes and began to download like a mad person I started to lose all of that space.

More than half of my computer's memory is now taken up by music. So I am going to now burn everything to cds. This means massive amounts of organizing. *sighs* Thank God I'm an organizer. Once I get all of the current music off I plan on stocking up on more before I have to get back to school. God knows that firewalls suck. So yes. Out with the old and in with the new.

I also still need to get all of my pictures on cds and fix my photobuckets. I can always do that at school and that's what I plan on doing. Pictures can wait. Music is more important. Sorry for those of you that have been waiting for certain pictures to be up. It ain't happenin' any time soon. *snaps fingers and tosses weave over shoulder* Whatever, I don't have a weave. *grins*

THE BAD PREDICTOR

So hurricane Emily may not be hitting Victoria afterall. We aren't far south enough. However, Emily will bring us a lot of rain. I can hang with that. I love rain and I really love sleeping during it and playing in it. So maybe my chance hasn't come for sign stealing but it's cool.

There is still always the chance that she changes her track though. *crosses her fingers* I know what you're thinking. "You're fucking crazy, Liz." No, I'm not. I just like the idea of seeing natural disasters. Yes the aftermath sucks but there is just something about watching it. I can't explain.

My sister was laughing at me earlier when I said, "If the hurricane hits I have to remember to get my cds out of my stereo. Last year when the electricity went out I couldn't get this cd out that I really wanted to listen to and it sucked." She laughed at me and said, "You're fucked up." *laughs* Yeah I know. I try not to worry about water, food, and light. But music! I have to worry about my music. Who can survive without music?

On another note, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was well worth the money. The only problem is that the oompa loompa freaked me out. He was way ugly and I didn't like the fact that it was just him being used. You'll know what I mean if you see it. The music for each kid wasn't that great either but Johnny Depp did a great job. He really saved everything with great comic relief.

One more thing, I also saw Wedding Crashers. It was a lot funnier then they made it seem in the previews. Definitely on my list of movies to buy. It's pretty much the same comedy as that of Old School or American Pie or something. It keeps you laughing. Check it out.

SUCKED UP

So the news said that Hurricane Emily will be hitting Victoria early next week. We're also being told that it should be a lot worse than Hurricane Claudette. Claudette was the hurricane that hit us right before I started/moved for college two years ago.

For those of you who don't know, that's how I got that stop sign for my room. When we were hit by hurricane Claudette all of Victoria lost it's power causing all of the street lights to go out. The City of Victoria then put up stop signs to make every intersection a four-way stop. This meant ghetto stops signs that stood on metal reels but were easy to move.

When our downtown area got electricity they pushed the stops signs off to one corner for some truck to pick them up. My sister grace, sarah (my bro's g/f at the time), jonathan (my bro's friend from school), and myself decided to spontaneously take one from the corner of the street in the middle of downtown, by the police station, with a motorcycle event going on not even two blocks from us, in broad daylight, and with witnesses everywhere.

It was quite hilarious how awful the planning was but we got away with it. So that my friends is the wonderful story of my awesome stop sign. Anyway so when this hurricane hits in a few days my new goal is to hopefully get a "One Way" sign. I've always wanted one of those fuckers and Roger (my boyfriend at the time of the last hurricane) sucked when it came to obtaining one for me. Then again he sucked at a lot of things but we don't need to go there right now.

Also if possible, I would like to get the "Elizabeth" street sign that's a few streets away from my house. That sign came off with the last hurricane and they replaced it so it's fairly new. I rememeber when we drove by that street and I didn't see the sign I was like "Roger! Stop!!! We have to get out and look to see if we can find the "Elizabeth" sign!" We searched for a good 30 minutes before we gave up. That's okay though because my chance has come now. My chance has come.

*GASPS!*

My brother and I were just at Sonic picking up a drink for my sister. While we were there we heard some sirens. I figured someone got pulled over because it didn't sound like a wreck. When our carhop came out she said that someone had been hit by a car right in front of the store.

Of course Joseph and I had to drive right passed the incident to get back to our house. It's typical. Come to find out soemone really did get hit. There was a car just sitting in the inner lane with 4 cop cars, a fire truck and an ambulance surrounding it. When we drove past they were covering a body. It was almost as if sound didn't exist at that very moment. All I rememeber now is the black shoes sitting in the road and flashing lights.

UNSATISFIED

Happy Birthday, Rene. Most importantly, Happy Birthday, Josh.

So I just got back from the pool. Let's just say that I am not happy with myself. I feel like I haven't done enough this summer. Physically that is. I spend 2 hours at the gym everyday so I don't know how that's possible! I think a lot of that has to do with me not being on a diet anymore.

Luckily for me I have a trainer now. I never thought that I would be able to say "I have a trainer" till I was at least out of college. Dang. That rocks. So anyway this trainer is putting me and my sister on a diet tomorrow. Yesssssss! I could use the extra push. Let's see how this goes.

So my birthday is slowly approaching. What to do? What to do?

SO.FREAKING.CUTE

This blog is simply for the purpose of bragging. My cousin Paco and his girlfriend Jessica have the cutest/kick ass baby (Adrianna) in the world. I'll rely this statement solely on the pictures below.

That of course that is my older brother Lawrence holding her. Those pics are entirely too cute. So cute that it makes me sick. Adrianna used to have an outfit thingy just like that for Sublime but she's already outgrown it. Too bad I don't have pics of that one. It's cool though. She's still awesome but I wanted to make sure that you knew it too. *grins*

ONE MORE MONTH

Work sucks and I only have one day off. However, this week brings a few good things. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is coming out on Friday and that just so happens to be my only day off! Can't make it to the Alkaline show tomorrow but I shouldn't spend the money anyway. God knows I can't just go to a show. I have to buy like 3 shirts and buttons and stickers and shot glasses and cds and so on and so forth. It's ridiculous.

So I found a new pet peeve to bitch about. That shit by R. Kelly "Trapped in the Closet," has got to be the most retarded thing that anyone has brought into the music industry. What the fuck was he thinking? It's worse than that fucking bananas song by Gwen Stefani. What the fuck was she thinking? Go back to old school No Doubt. That's where the talent was. Okay? Thanks.

Last but definitely not in the least, Krista rocks my socks like whoa.

Fin.

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT BLOGGING

So it's official. I made an A in my spanish class. All I have to do now is lose a few more pounds and I will feel good about my summer.

Though I made an A in my class the bigger accomplishment in it all was having an actual conversation with that lady at work yesterday. It made me feel good knowing that I knew what she was saying and how to respond. For that I must thank my wonderful Spanish teacher. Though the class was long I thoroughly enjoyed it. See you in Mexico.

JUST A FEW THINGS

Today my mother got after me. "You need to buy a car! You don't need to go to Mexico and Spain!" She's right. I need to buy a car. Granted that I live on campus and have a bike it'll still be good to have a car. Only thing is I'm going to have to cut back on many of my expenses to make that possible. Here's to not going to as many concerts. *raises ozarka bottle*

She knows that I'm still going. Just not when I intended to now. I'm a very stubborn person and when I want something that bad I'll try my damnedest to make it possible. So Spain looks like it will wait for another summer. I won't be graduating till december of 07 anyway because of all the extra hours I need for being a double minor. So in thinking about it I can still make the trip to Spain in the summer of 07 and possibly still go to Mexico this coming summer. Hopefully things will workout for me.

I will be fluent in Spanish and eventually learn Latin and everything derived from it. My goal is to do that before the age of 35. *nods* Speaking of spanish and speaking it! I took/took out an order at work in spanish today (yesterday). It was really neat. I understood everything she said. It was easy stuff but the point is that we held a "small talk" conversation. She told me that her husband and kids speak english. She said that she was from Monterrey, her husband was from here, one of her kids was born here and the other two were born in Mexico. Anyway I thought it was neat. I plan on talking to my mom and grandparents more in spanish. It'll help a lot and it'll be great.

On another note, my mother talked to me the other day about how I should seriously consider doing math as my major and become a professor or something. I told her that I don't have the patience to be a teacher. Thing is though, that I find myself tutoring people in the dorm (that's just the RA in me) in math all the time and I actually enjoy it. So I don't know what this means for me.

"Well you made an A in Calculus without trying and it just comes so easy to you. Do it." Yeah right mom, I studied and it was only one class. "I really want you to think about this more, Elizabeth. You're too good at math to not make it your major." Don't get me wrong, mom, I like math and that's why it's my minor but I like communications too. Most of those classes come easy to me also. "Well, there is always grad school. Think about it. You should go for math." Yeah yeah yeah. Grad school.

So, grad school for mathematics? Maybe? We'll see. I should be starting upper level courses by the spring. I should have a better idea about how I feel about math after that.

*GIGGLES*

I am in total and complete awe right now. All I can do is giggle. I guess I don't know some of my friends as well as I thought I did. Life is so random sometimes.

On another note, who wants to plan my birthday? I don't. I don't think I even want anything like last year but we sure do throw some damn good parties.

*IN AN ANNOUNCERS VOICE*

Ladies and Gentlemen!
WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!
To the Arredondo Household.
Where fighting has become a daily event!
*Liz pulls out a gun and shoots the announcer*

Fuck.

I'm ready to come back but you already knew that.

So today marked the end of my class. So the meaning in the words, "School's out for summer," can now be applied to me. I took my final this morning on four hours of sleep and two hours of study time. Have no fear though. I aced it, the final and the class. The bigger excitment though is that the class is over.

Tomorrow I will start working out again. I feel kinda guilty for only working out once in the past four days but I can now spend my days waking up a little later and working out without having to find the time. Inches are decreasing and the pounds are slowly coming off. That's what weight training does though.

I had a really crazy dream when I took my nap this afternoon. It wasn't really crazy but a little odd. It involved kelly, laura, allison, and bryant. There was a lot of crying involved but now that I think about it the dream was really retarded. *shrugs* I'm not going to go into detail because it was just that lame.

I have to get ready for work. I think I might just start living there or something. Might as well.

FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT.

So in my pathetic attempts of completing my homework for my spanish class I ran across something I have decided to share with you.

Our professor told us that we were (in groups) to plan a party. We needed to say when, where, who was invited, what to drink, what to eat, what we were doing, and how much our budget was. He told us to make it funny and that we would have to read it to the class.

When someone tells me funny I think random. Because I am me and I am a controlling bitch I took over in the creation of the story of course.

Have at it...
(Excuse the grammar errors. That's why it's spanish 1, bitch.)

"Vamos a dar una fiesta en el 4 de Julio a las dos en la tarde. Tenemos dos dolares y vientisiete centavos. La fiesta va a ser en la iglesia de los mormones. Nosotros vamos a invitar Richard Simmons y Ellen Degeneres. Vamos a tomar ponche y a comer queso. Vamos a correr en circulos y vamos a tener una pinata. Vamos a eschuchar a los 'New Kids on the Block.' Fin."

Translation...
"We will be having a party on July 4 at two in the afternoon. We have two dollars and twenty-seven cents. The party is going to be in the church of mormons. We are going to invite Richard Simmons and Ellen Degeneres. We are going to drink punch and eat cheese. We are going to run in circles and we are going to have a pinata. We are going to listen to the New Kids on the Block. The End."

Personally I think it sounds a lot funnier in Spanish. We got the most laughs but that's only because we are just that stupid. *grins* All that matters is the A I'm making in there.

Anywho, I must get back to my studying. I work this whole week and my only study time is now. Thank God for no more class after this week. Yes! *does a cartwheel* Yeah right, I can't do cartwheels. *does one more* So what? I lied.

Catch you on the flip side.

TO PERSEVERE...

my procrastination I've decided to modulate my template. *nods* Proposals, anyone? Recommendations, anyone? Anyone? No?

Alright. You had your opportunity.

However, I've become very critical in the process of such a selection. I'm not sure what is it I'm inquiring though. I simply want something that orates "Liz" yet recites beauty.

This search will press on, my friends. It will press on.

DRUNK PHONE CALLS

A drunk Philster just called me. He wanted to sing a song to me called "Toxic Waste." I can not even begin to stress how freaking hilarious it was. The song was really about toxic waste and pollution too.

On that note, good night.
