Introducing...PJ!

My friend PJ (nee Leslye) got married eons ago to her hubby, Dr. J. And yes, I'm just posting about it now. Hey, it's not my fault. Vicky4 totally broke down on me.

Anyways, the wedding was so gorgeous and totally different just like PJ. And, believe it or not, the wedding went off without any major hitches or any serious drama. Well, there was a bit of drama for me when we (the bridal party) went to get our hair done, but I'm not going to talk about that unpleasantness for fear of writing a blog post in ALL CAPS TO EXPRESS MY INTENSE RAGE!!!


HOLD ON A SECOND. I NEED A MOMENT TO COLLECT MYSELF!!!


Okay, here are some pictures from PJ's lovely wedding weekend along with my ever so witty captions. I've omitted most of the pictures of myself because no one needs to see me looking like a huge Red Delicious come to life...

Seriously, this is what I looked like at the wedding.

PJ (nee Leslye) had a Henna Bachelorette Party. Here's the lovely KT/Katy/Catherine/Kat (I think I've renamed Katy five times on this blog) in the midst of delicate Henna surgery.

This is how you get crucial wedding updates on your cell, while protecting your Henna, while admiring your other henna.

Hands of Henna. Actually this was a lot of fun. Oh, and PJ my Henna has not gone away yet. Now I look like I have leprosy!

Katy and her husband JR. Awwww, they're so cute. And JR is an awesome dancer!



2008_1025Fall20080071

This is me and PJ's (nee Leslye's) cousin and maid of honor. On this blog, she shall henceforth be named "Tens." Because she's super cool. :)

Hey did you guys know that I know someone famous? PJ's (nee Leslye's...yes, I'm going to keep doing this) brother Paul James. He plays "Calvin" on the ABC Family drama Greek. Go ask some kiddies about the show. They all love it and Paul too.



2008_1025Fall20080072

Little do they know that Paul is not as cool as he looks on television. Let this be a lesson for you children.



2008_1025Fall20080069

PJ (nee...okay, I'm not going to do it anymore) and her familia. Awwww, I like this picture.




2008_1025Fall20080074

But this is my FAVORITE picture of the wedding weekend. I think Katy and Tens look gorgeous here!



2008_1025Fall20080077

It's time to go!



2008_1025Fall20080078

PJ just realized she's getting married.



2008_1025Fall20080080

But, she's not marrying herself! Finally, here's Dr. J and his groomsmen.



2008_1025Fall20080085

Look, now they're married. You can tell because they have that marriage "glow."



2008_1025Fall20080086

I'm not going to say "bling, bling" because I know you are totally expecting that.



2008_1025Fall20080089

It's true. You are not as cool as these guys. I'm sorry. You'll just have to deal.



2008_1025Fall20080095

In their first official action as husband and wife, PJ and Dr. J decided to mutilate a helpless and innocent cake. As you can see, Paul didn't try to stop them. He just took pictures.


Okay, so that's PJ's wedding weekend. It really was a blast. And now I'm totally excited for Eliza's wedding. I know it's going to fabulous. You should see pictures from that wedding on this blog in 2015.

Well, maybe a little bit sooner. I'm sure I'll put those up eventually.

Uhhh, you know it really depends on if I end up looking like a giant fruit again. We'll see. ;p~~~

She's a Bad Girl

What do you do when you know something is bad for you, but you just can't stay away? There's a new magical fairy in my life. She was supposed to replace the old, when purchased, and totally abusive ogre known as Vicky3, but now I'm not too sure. Le Sigh. Well, introductions are in order, so everyone meet Vicky4....

Okay, first of all, Vicky4 really is a bad @$$ computer. I mean, she's so loaded with crap that I shouldn't have to buy another laptop for years! But, Vicky4 also comes with baggage, aka Windows Vista, so she's not really living up to her full potential.

Now before you Mac-bots (PJ I'm looking at you) start yelling at me telling me I should have bought a MacBook Pro, I want you to know I considered that. Since I had to learn a new operating system anyways with Vista, I thought I might as well consider getting a MacBook with it's not completely foreign, but still a bit weird, OS. Well, here's the thing with Apple....

Apple kinda blows.

A lot.

Yeah, Apple blows just as much as Microsoft really. I mean, honestly Apple and Microsoft are like two politicians: both are dirty, but you gotta pick the lesser of two evils and hope for the best.

Look, I know a little about Apple. I have an iPhone. In fact, I've had two iPhones (sold the 1st gen on Ebay for more than I bought it for...people are nuts, huh?). And, for the record, I flove the iPhone! I also recognized that Apple has intentionally held the iPhone back from being as useful as it could be while it attempts to patent the Universe before Nokia, Blackberry, Motorola, etc. And, therein lies the problem with all Apple products.

The MacBook Pro is more expensive than a Dell XPS and it's outdated before it even leaves Cupertino or San Francisco or Beijing or where ever it is that Apple does its dirty business. For whatever reason (a pact with the devil or currently adapting alien tech which will be useful in 100 years when I'm dead!), the MacBook Pro doesn't come with a Blue Ray drive!

I mean really! What the heck is up with that Apple? Are we going to give Beta another try? With the slight exception of the video card, I get everything else on a Dell for two-third's (or less) of the MacBook price AND I can play and BURN Blue Ray disks. AND, to top it all off, Dell comes in pink. So, Dell wins (Microsoft wins by default).

Well, alright so I voted for the Dell/Vista ticket, but that doesn't mean I'm happy with Dell's VP candidate (now I understand how McCain supporters feel). Let me tell you, please don't believe the Mojave/I'm a PC commercials. I mean, I didn't believe Microsoft's slick advertising, although I did think it was kind of funny calling out Apple on its pretentiousness. That being said, VISTA SUCKS HARD!

I've had Vicky4 for one day, and I've already spent three hours on the phone with Microsoft and Dell! And, I'm not an idiot. I do know how to watch movies and get on the internets (typo, but I'm leaving it).

Yes, my Iron Man DVD is an actual DVD and not a CD. And, yeah, I'm pretty sure that I didn't download a counterfeit version of Internet Explorer (what? isn't it free anyways?) which in turn disabled my virus protection. Oh, wait you mean Vista did that? Oh, yeah, that's what I thought.


B@stards!


Anyways, after 12 hours of set up time in which Vicky4 had to be restored not once, but twice!, Vicky4 appears to be fully operational.


Now, I don't know what's in store for the future, but for now Vicky4 is pretty cool. I'm digging this Windows Live Writer. Perhaps, I'll be writing more often now that I've shelved Vicky3. Or perhaps I'm full of crap and will do what I usually do which is nothing since I've moved to Florida.


Yeah, yeah, I'm liking the latter option.


So, for what it's worth say hello to Vicky4. I'm not responsible if she bites.
