Day 44 – A hobby of yours

I was getting a bit worried when I saw the clock say 5:30pm and I hadn’t yet thought of the blog challenge at any point during the day. I procrastinated a few more minutes, but the thought of Monique or Cari thinking I was not taking this challenge seriously got me onto the computer typing this masterpiece. I surely do not want to be the first person voted off this blog challenge island if you know what I mean.

So when I went to check and see what the challenge of the day was I was quite relieved, a hobby of yours. This, for me is so easy, it is something I do almost all day every day. It is the reason my bf asks me if I am a 90 year old stuck in a 27 year old models body. 😉 So can you guess what my hobby is? Think of a cute little old lady, sitting in her rocker on the front porch, a glass of iced tea collecting moisture droplets on the plastic table next to her, hair in a bun, listening to some good old tunes…what do you think she would be doing as an activity? Chugging whiskey you say, nope that is not my hobby, well not all the time anyways. Playing skyfari, you know that game where you gaze into the cloudy  sky and try to find some sort of jungle animal in the clouds? Nope that is not my hobby, well not on a daily basis. Shooting a bb gun at those good-for-nothing squirrels that keep eating my daisys..nope, that is not a hobby of mine, well not yet. Alright already, what is my hobby, knitting? Booyah…this it is. My favorite thing to do, almost all day, everyday. I love knitting, hats, scarves, cowls, blankets, flower thingys, mittens, fingerless-gloves, and the list goes on and on my friend. I find it interesting that with my A.D.D a hobby favored by the elderly can grasp my attention for hours on end…so with that said if you are looking for something knitted please let me know, or visit my online store ( which is kind of under construction as I slave away day and night in my knitting factory trying to come up with cool stuff for all of you to don)…

my newest yarn addition. softest yarn ever.
whipped up a quick little flower for ya.
bubba wanted a headband too.

Hiatus is officially over! Guess who’s back?!?

So, yes, I have been out of commission for quite a while but I am back. I hired an interim Blogger to fill in while I was away…needless to say she will not be hired again. 🙂 However, from here on out I am in town, with internet ( at least during the week), a new non-cracked cell phone, and some good stuff for ya. thanks for your patience homies!

Day 23

I would like to take the time to introduce myself, ahem… For those of you who are unlucky enough to have never met me I am Courtney aka Boots, as Michelle so fondly refers to me as.  I will be taking over as interim blogger while Shell Shell is down in the Sunshine state searching for other shells.

So Day 23, leads us to the search for a school picture.  While I am fortunate enough to find myself in a profession where school pictures seem to be a daily occurence (seriously almost everyday in my mailbox there is a new picture, either solo or class, somehow the people from Lifetouch always seem to find their way into my building and capture every precious moment), I however choose not to use a photo from my recent elementary years.  For your viewing pleasure I am lucky enough to have a kindergarten photo in my possession.  Some may think it’s a little vain, but I like to keep a shrine of myself in my living room.  The reason for this is simple, people are much better at looking at pictures than listening, so therefore I display photos of myself throughout my childhood, so that no one has to ask, “how did you become such an outstanding, successful individual?”  Or, “so what is your natural hair color?”I  can simply point to the pictures and the path is illuminated.  So enjoy Kindergarten Courtney, circa 1989!

Day 22 – Favorite cd that you own

favorite what? cd…what is a cd? that is a thing of the past these days and was definitely not an easy find…however, what i would really like to find now is my discman. that would be a sweet find, oh how i begged for one of those. not one of those sick, yellow and grey ones but the legit solid black one. if only i had a time machine…but i don’t so I just have my ipod, ghetto phone and laptop where I watch my fav shows snooki’s world aka Jersey Snore..zzzz and teen mom 2 which is amazing. speaking of, our trivia team Teen Mom 5 did awesome last night.

but back to the lecture at hand, if you want to listen to a good cd get the one below on itunes, i love it.

what a gem

Day 21 – A picture of your cell phone

remember when I said my phone is a piece of junk?

.no there is not an app for that.

many times a day and hundreds of times a month people say to me one of the following phrases:

“OH MY LORD, what happened to your phone?”

“You should have a case for that”

“Looks like your phone has seen better days?”

“Dang girl what on earth did you do to your cell phone?”

“Doesn’t that screen bother you?”

“Whoa…you still have that cracked phone?”

“Oh Michelle, you broke another iPhone?”

“Why don’t you just get a Motorola razor or something cheap like that?”

“Do you like slice your fingers open every day on that phone?”

“Why don’t you just get the new iPhone 4?”

“You so ghetto girl, fo real!”


And, well, the list goes on and on and on and just when I think I have heard all I can hear about the phone someone mentions it to me again. Well, newsflash, I actually use the phone every day. No, I don’t want to have a cracked piece of junk phone but thanks to some a$$hole at the Avalanche game, I no longer have my iPhone4, so yes I did have the new phone, then someone stole it and I had to go back to the old phone. The old, cracked phone that has served as the number one icebreaker known to man. Everyone has a comment and a great idea and a question. Well today I am coming forward and saying I am sick of all your stupid questions. So here are my answers, and please don’t ask me anymore. 🙂

“OH MY LORD, what happened to your phone?” ~ Ummm What do you think happened to my phone, I dropped it about 100 times. Duh.

“You should have a case for that” ~ Well would’t that just have been a great idea…How about I did have a case on it.

“Looks like your phone has seen better days?” ~ You think?

“Dang girl what on earth did you do to your cell phone?” ~ I dropped it. What on earth do you think I did to my cell phone?

“Doesn’t that screen bother you?” ~ Apparently not as much as it is bothering you, and for the record no it doesn’t bother me…well not anymore.

“Whoa…you still have that cracked phone?” ~ Yep, as you can see by the fact that I am using the phone right in front of your face. Dang, anything else?

“Oh Michelle, you broke another iPhone?” ~ Well, actually I have just broke this phone 100 times, so no its not another phone its the same old piece of junk.

“Why don’t you just get a Motorola razor or something cheap like that?” ~ Because that would be ghetto.

“Do you like slice your fingers open every day on that phone?” ~ Do you see any cuts on my fingers? Do you see any band aids?

“Why don’t you just get the new iPhone 4?” ~ Remember I had it and some douche stole it? Why don’t you just go ahead and ask me if I want to face time and rub it in a little more?

“You so ghetto girl, fo real!” ~ Tell me something I don’t know. winning.

So here I am answering all your lingering questions about why I have a cracked phone and why I will have one the next time you see me. Unless anyone is interested in handing over $600 for a new phone ( yeah that’s the price if you are not eligible for an upgrade) didn’t think so.  Please, please, please stop with the questions and just embrace it.

Because I am willing to bet, to all my iphone brothers and sisters out there, that if we both leave our phones on a table in a bar I will get mine back and well, yours will be history. sorry.

Day 20 – Your Grades/Report card

The college alphabet…A, B, C, D, F..I speak it fluently, so fluently in fact that they let me out of the University with a degree. I know, crazy as it may be, it’s true. No, you will not get to see my report card/transcript. Why not you ask? Cause that would be creepy and then you would be  jealous of me and while the thought of that does make me happy, it’s just not going to happen.

However, I am prof that ( a+b)+(c+d)f= college grad and that just wants to make me sing out loud to this music video, maybe a little dancing too.


dah na na na na na na na...Go Hawks!



Day 18 – Your favorite outfit

depends on the day. depends on the weather. depends on where you are. depends on who you are with. depends on what you are doing.  usually i just prefer yoga clothes, guaranteed comfy, always fit like a glove, rather cute in my opinion and well you can do just about anything in them except go to da club…unce unce unce unce and that is okay by me, I’d rather wear my least favorite outfit to da club…

...jlo style...

i love lulu yoga clothes…so go ahead and get your yoga on, or at least just put on the clothes  you will love them.
