highlights from oh-my-omaha

So I went to Omaha for the weekend - to celebrate my birthday and enjoy cold beers in the sweltering inferno of the college world series.

We didn't go to any games, mind you. Just drank and fraternized with the locals (and non-locals).

Hooray for a trip to a new state with the lovely Shannonigans. Yeeehawwww.

Highlights from the sweatfest:

1. getting pulled over just outside of Lincoln. yes she was speeding. but oh my goodness officer, it's my first time to Omaha and we got excited that our long drive was almost over. thank you for the no-ticket-just-a-warning sir. zoom zoom.

2. pooling sweat in every crevice. just standing there. drip drip drop little june day showers.

3. my first beer gardens

4. a birthday cake (courtesy of Shannon's brother) at a family dinner. so unexpected and sweet! i had just met the fam..and they got me a cake. awwwww. warms the ol' heart chambers.

5. getting ready to leave a bar and getting accosted by a group of older men (late 40s to late 50s) who come to CWS every year. ended up chatting them up for about 3 hours while still sweating profusely. fun times.

6. bonding with a gentleman who was recently married and just had a baby. we chatted about life changes and my upcoming marriage.

7. the man in the white shirt who clearly had been ran into from behind by someone with a chocolate soft serve cone. bummerz.

8. having to pee. asking a group of gents by the port-o-potty if they were waiting. they said yes. i kissed my bulging bicep, asked "still waiting?" they said no. in i went. drip drip drop little june day showers.

9. shannon's 16-year old stepbrother joining us at 2 am in the basement (once we got back from the bars) for chips and salsa (thinking we had been asleep up until this point) "what the...? did you all just decide to wake up and eat chips???" yes. that's how we roll. we sleep until 2 am and then get up for chips EVERY NIGHT. you'll understand when you're older.

10. BEST HIGHLIGHT: busting in to the cemetary at night (if you know me and my fear of ghosts, this is a huge deal---scary!) but no way was i waiting in the car. shannon was going to visit her mom. the 11-year anniversary of her passing.
the cemetary had already closed so we (poorly) scaled the 8 foot chain linked fence. shannon, thinking the ground was closer, took a nice little tumbly into the cemetary. i just managed to gouge the backs of my thighs on the top of the fence. huge scratches. huger bruises. i gave her a nice long a moment while i waited a few yards off and thought about how sweet an event this was that i got to share. then i joined her at the headstone and met her mom. a very touching moment full of hugs and support. wouldn't have traded that for anything. absolutely great.

Almost 26 words about my almost 26 years on planet Earth

laughter. chubby. hair. schools. california. oregon. italy. denver. boys. men. libations. heartbreak. love. experiments. nails. stickshifts. religion. grades. nerdy. cheese. words. insecure. confident. sister. believer.

For those paying attention, that was only 25 words. I'm not 26 yet. But thanks for noticing.

Friday is my Montastic birthday. Be sure to get me something nice-ish.

wow I'm losing myself!

so with all this wedding hubbub, i'm really losing myself in it. not in a bad way. i've just been busy. i am busy. i will be busy. and when it comes down to it, my every free moment to think is consumed by thinking of the big day.

sigh. Bella and Brutta, the innocent bystander, has really had to bear the brunt of it. no new posts really. nothing interesting. nada.

so why don't i just tell you a bit about the big day and what has been all-consuming.

Music. picking out songs--what an ordeal! the first dance. BUM BUM BUUUMMMM!! What do you dance to? Something classic like good ol' Etta? Something more upbeat and current? Or something non-traditional? Well, I guess it depends on a couple things. 1. can you dance to the song in whatever type of huge dress you have. 2. how much do you care what other people think about your song (the key is NOT to care. it's not their song, it's yorus) and 3. how different are your musical tastes from your betrothed.

Invites. ribbon. i made about 5 trips to the store for ribbon. good lord you use a lot of ribbon, if you use ribbon. also, be sure to send them out a certain amount of time before the wedding. BUT don't send them out too early. oh my goodness people get so confused if you do. blah blah blah. guess what folks? i sent them out. sorry if they're too early. sorry if you lose the invite between now and the big day. thank you for your concern. and you're welcome for inviting you.

Family. why the hell do people have to get married to bring family together. because OHMYGOSHI'MSOEXCITED to have all my family in one place for the first time in years!

seriously. so. excited. 81 days.

Facebook ads

Well, facebook has certainly been paying attention to my recent status updates/info. As you can see, the ads have been tailored to my impending matrimonial needs---

Alright Facebook. You won this one. You got me.

Well..until this ad popped up...

It implies two things.
1. That I shave regularly and find it tiresome.
and 2. That I want to remove my body hair with laser beams.

If you're keeping track:

Facebook ads and Montastic have a love/hate relationship.

belated Friday Funday Song Sendoff

The female bedbug has no sexual opening. To get around this, the male uses his penis to DRILL A VAGINA into the female.

oh good lord. aren't you glad you learned that today. yikes.

details here.

talking about squashing my longtime dream of wanting to be a bedbug. i had no idea what i'd be signing up for.
