Writer's Block: Words to Live By

What is your personal motto or favorite quotation?
My personal motto?  I have several. First:  What would Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan do?  Because really, she was so freaking awesome and she pwned EVERYONE in Denver.  And it's somewhat helpful.  The only problem is that Alexis would've slapped the shit out of everybody or thrown a martini in their face.  So it really doesn't actually work, but it is helpful when you need to get your bitch on.

The other "motto" I live by is the 4 rules to becoming a drag queen from To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar.  Which are as follows:
1. Let positive thoughts be your sword and shield
2. Ignore adversity
3. Abide by the rules of love
4. Larger than life is just the right size.

In other news, I got my haircut last night, FINALLY.  Went to dinner with Brian and then Starbucks where I was stupid and ordered a tall drip instead of a tall decaf drip.  So I had a LOT of energy for about 2 hours.  And then boom - it was gone.

Today, went to Wal-Mart.  Saved $10 in coupons and then cleaned the hell out of my apartment for 2 hours.  Easy with the help of Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears.  Very easy.  And tonight, Reese and I are gonna watch foreign films and order a pizza and maybe hit up the Macy*s one-day sale. Good times.

TWITTER

Ok - I was holding out on this twitter thing but it's like my new favorite thing.  I think I'm gonna twitter a lot more!  I'm stephentrendy there, too.  So follow me bitches!  PLEASE! 

Mea Culpa

Ok, I have to apologize. I had rather hoped that people would see the date stamp yesterday and think that it was a joke. The title roughly translates to "the spanish prank", but I suppose, upon further investigation that it does actually work as a believable post. I should have put in a joke or two to tip people off that it was a fake. And also, I went to bed and forgot to update that it was an April Fool's Day prank. So, sorry folks. I'm not going to Spain anytime soon.

Although I have been getting my shit together so that I can get my ESL cert and go to Spain. It'll just be a few more years before that happens. So, don't go thinking I WON'T go to Spain. Just not this month. Or anytime in the next year.

Sorry I pranked you! I just didn't think anyone would actually believe that I would move across the ocean and NOT talk about it here. Or with anyone. Ever. So, again. Sorry. And that comes off as insincere, but it's not. I really am sorry to have pranked you (though I'm a little disappointed that no one got it).

Spanischer Streich

Ok, so today was FULL of good news. First, work was blah, but I got to actually take my full hour lunch. Then, I came home and my visa came through. I'm cleared to go to Spain! EEEEEEEE!

Some background: Last year, I signed up for this ESL certification class. I never posted about it because y'all know I'm not all about the deep entries and it was mainly about getting together an actual career instead of manipulating Excel spreadsheets all day. Well, I got my certification and applied for a school in Madrid. I was kind of worried that they wouldn't take me because I'm 22 (I'll be 23 by the time I get there) and it was the end of the semester. But they said that a lot of the students would be taking an English class over the summer, so it's not a problem at all (and most of the teachers like to go home for the summer). They sent me the course syllabus last week and it's looking really easy.

I already have a place to live and everything (it's with some of the other teachers from abroad). I have to leave puppy behind, but my mom is going to watch him while I'm gone for the next year or two. I wish I didn't have to break my lease, but it was either break it now, or put everything in storage for the 2 months before the Fall semester starts (my lease runs out at the end of July). But the apartments were very understanding and even wished me luck!

I leave at the end of April. I'm seriously so excited. Time to go start re-learning Spanish. It's been awhile since I've used it (besides talking shit about people at work).

Tapas and sangria here I come! YAY!
