I'm 100.

My purge has been going pretty well, if I do say so myself.  So far I've filled 7 bags with unwanted clothes and a giant bag of random things I've been hoarding for about 15 years that I don't need anymore.  That's so weird that I remember stuff that happened 15 years ago in such great detail.  I'm starting to feel a little old. 

This is our filled up storage unit.

In other news, I can't believe Laura's in New York now!  I'm so excited for her!  And I'm not as sad as everyone else because we're going to have a fantastic time with my family on the 4th of July!

Lately I've been listening to a lot of the songs I listened to in high school, so a lot of boy bands.  I really miss boy bands.  Sometimes a lot.

Soon I will post some lovely pictures.  I mean, I would've posted them now, but I'm at Kirsten's and I can't take pictures of the things I need to take pictures of.   I've been staying with Kirsten a lot in Norman, and I love it.  It makes me feel like I still live in Norman at least.

I've been working a lot lately and I hate it!  I hate customers mostly.  People are so rude.  And disgusting.  The things they do in dressing rooms are gross.  I've been working in retail pretty consistently since I was 18 and people still surprise me with their rudeness and their stupidity.  I think all people should have to work a retail job at least once in their life to understand how incredibly rude they are.  Seriously, how hard would it be for you to hang up the things you brought with you into the dressing room?  Or at least turn that shirt right side out?  Or, if you see me frantically trying to clear off the rack of clothes from the dressing room, to just put those shorts back where you got them? Also, don't tick your tongue at me to try and get my attention.  I'll probably just keep ignoring you anyway until you say "excuse me."

I want to think of a new blog name.  Well, I mean I have been thinking of a new one.  I guess I should've said I want to change my blog name.  I'm over Once Upon A Blog.  So far I've thought of The Silver Lining and Pursuing Happiness.  But, I'm still undecided.

I really enjoyed Away We Go.  I thought it was refreshing and new and different and beautiful.  Thanks Tracy for the free ticket!  I liked it so much that I might even pay to go see it again.  I thought about writing a review of it, but I've since changed my mind.  I saw The Proposal earlier in the day with Alex and I thought it was a perfectly done romantic comedy.  I laughed pretty hard pretty often.  Plus, I love Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds is pretty to look at.

I don't think I'd want to be proposed to at a ball game, but I've always wanted to see someone get proposed to at one!  And I can't believe I forgot to tell you that one of my many life wishes came true at the Yankee/Ranger game I went to!

  6. callie I cant believe I just realized I wasnt subscribed to your blog! I was wondering why you never showed up in my blog news feed and thought you were just never blogging!
    I'm sorry for rude people. They're rude in restruants too, I think just rude everywhere they go.

    I am glad that I do the opposite of the rude people in stores. I always hang up my own clothes. That is how my mommy taught me!
    Good job with the purge. I have only filled up two and a half bags!

    Or once upon a koukla (or how ever you spell it!).
