Arbor Day

Today my school celebrated Arbor Day. Smokey Bear came out for all the kids to see. He gave everyone of them a hug. A group of kids in my class pushed me in to his arms. So today I got a hug from Smokey Bear. After everyone was done hugging the guy in the bear suit we all went out and planted some trees. Did I mention it is really hot today? So yeah while we were waiting for our class to plant their tree I noticed a guy that I didn't see earlier in the assembly (he must of been the guy in the bear outfit) who looked like someone I knew a few years ago. I didn't think it was possible since I don't know anyone in this part of Arkansas except for my 2 friends. Well I was right. It was Cameron, who I worked with at Burger King like 4 years ago. Last time I saw him I had just moved to Stuttgart and was working for KFC. I spent the night at a fellow KFC employee's house in Cabot. When I woke up Cameron was standing over me. Weird. We use to hang out all the time.. He was at my school because he is now a park ranger guy for this area. He lives about an hour from where I live. It was very weird seeing him here.. It's been a long time since I have seen any of my old Burger King friends..

Vegas Baby!

I was going through some of my pictures last night, when I found the ones from my Vegas trip.
I went to Las Vegas with my dad for spring break when I was 16. My dad being real into poetry and what not, we went there for a week long poetry jam. It was great fun. On the train from Oregon to Cali I meet 2 teenagers about my age that were going to Cali for their spring break. We had the whole bottom car of the train to ourselves. They brought tequila. That was the first time I ever got drunk. It was bad.. Anyways the guy on the left was at the poetry jam and I had this huge crush on him. All I know about him is his name ( wich I won't tell) and that he lives in Canada. Once we were in Vegas I ended up sharing a Hotel room with 2 people I didn't know, Greg and Zoe. I don't really remeber why.. But Greg and Zoe were cool, I liked them. Infact me and Zoe kept in touch for a while.. Greg, Zoe, That guy above myself and a few others took a day trip to see the Red Rocks. Let me tell ya, they are red and they are rocks. Really no point in seeing them unless you have a fetish for rocks.. But on the way there some of the guy's decided they wanted to smoke some pot. I didn't really care, but Zoe got all kinds of mad. Then she told my dad that they smoked infront of me and he got all kinds of mad. Well that night Greg and I went to get some food. No one else was around, so it was just us. I had to ask my daddy's permission first of course. Wouldn't want to send me out on the strip, with a guy who smoke pot now would he? Let's forget the fact that I'm sharing a room with the guy. But anyways We talked and stuff. He apologized, I said I didn't really care. When I pulle dout a cig he was like OMG! you smoke and I was like OMG you want one? Everything was cool after that.
The other picture is of a really awesome store. It's called the Attic and they sell vintage everything. That store was so cool. Infact if I ever go back to Vegas it will be so I can shop there!! Well that and the fact that I'm now old enough to walk around in a casino by myself is a plus. Well anyways that was my trip to Vegas. I'm sure I left some stuff out.. This is everything that stood out enough in my mind to remeber..

Leave it for the birds

We've had an interesting morning so far. We had a bird in our office (the room I share with the resource teacher). We had a couple of kids in the room at the time. It was great fun.. Damn bird scared the crap out of me. I don't know how it got into our room, it just kinda fell out of the ceiling, I guess. SO anyways, thats my excieting news for the morning. Oh and momma cat came home yesterday, after being gone for a week. She has some wounds on her face, nothing to bad. She must have been in some kind of fight. Her wounds look ok now, but I'm sure a couple days ago they looked real bad..

Sticky dog

We've been doing testing all week. Great fun! Because my kid is so special we get to go to another room and take his test. Wich means we will be done a day earlier then the rest (we spent more time each day on it) so whoo hoo! We also get to have a 4 day weekend this week. Yea! I so didn't want to get out of bed today. I almost over slept, but my dog woke me up. I heard him out in the living room destroying my stuff. He started to eat my CD case. I stopped him before he could eat any of the CD's. Yesterday when I got home he had torn up one of my sign books ( it really belongs to the school, can't return it now..), got into my candy stash and ate 5 of the tootsie roll pops I had. I know he did too.. I had to pick the evidence out of his fur! His paws are so sticky and I have no way of giving him a bath. He is to big for my kitchen sink and I have no bathtub. I guess he stays sticky till the next time we go to Blythevile. Hey, maybe he will attract ants and they will carry him off? One amusing story about the mutt is on Monday the dumb dog got his head stuck in my toilet. Hee Hee! Dumb dog!
Anyways I was going to post some pictures of my babies ( the kittens). I took a few pictures of them last night, but they wern't very good.. I cut their heads off.. I'll try again tonight.. Well I guess I better go.

I forgot to mention that they let my dad out of the hospital late last week. He is doing much better. I can hold a conversation with him for more than 5 min. It's good! That's my dad. Here is a link to his poetry page Donn Deedon It's got a lot of his stuff and some from other people including my sister and myself. Well anyways, schools out, so I'm gonna go home and feed some whinny kittens..


I saw this on an Oregon Coast website some where and thought it was cute ( the picture on the left). I love stupid silly signs like this. I miss the ocean so bad! I think the only thing that could get me to move back to Oregon would be the scenery. Don't get me wrong, I love my family and all, but after 2 weeks I'd be ready to pack up and leave again! Leigh Keeps asking me if someday we could move out of the south. He wants to go back to San Fran. I told him I don't care where we go to as long as its on the coast! My mom takes weekend trips all the time and sends me pictures. I think I have about 70 on my bedroom wall. Its not the same as being there, but it helps me get through till the next time I go..
