So these pesky little itty bitty ants of doom have invaded our house....and it has been my mission for the past couple days to seek their destruction. I have tried several natural methods with limited results. Apparently ants don't like baby powder, bay leaves, or vinegar. So for about a week, those were my main arsenal. I'd whip those pups out and go to town on those dirty little bastards. They would freak out and die and I was most satisfied..until 2 days later when they decided they forgot i was an evil murdering mistress of their kind. the places I stuck the bay leaves seemed to be the only lines of defense against them...they still avoid that area like the plague....the plague of bay leaves...but i didn't really want to go out and buy another jar of those....i'd rather make tasty stews and soups than a dead ant city.
So i come home from the bookstore the other night...they are crawling ALL OVER the kitchen floor..i'm grossed out and slightly annoyed Franklin did nothing to seek revenge on their living as I would have...so we go to the store and buy those shitty bait traps that don't really work.
I was not satisfied.
When we lived in Alton, we also had an ant problem, but i randomly bought this cheapy stuff at the grocery store and used it on them...and talk about eradication. sadly i did not recognize anything that looked like it at the Jewels....so i hopped online and searched for ANT KILLER...and lo and behold...it was the first damn thing. TERRO ANT KILLER. I even had the title correct. go me. I run to Ace...b/c Ace is the place for all of your ant eradication needs. I put out the stuff...the ants started immediately to gorge themselves on my sweetly delicious poison of doom...soon i will be ant free and they will be licking sugar cubes in ant heaven.
Ants:0 Kristy: 1 +saving throw to dex
and oh yeah...wedding stuff going awesome...dress fitting next week. Need to find phone number for cake lady...that's important. should've got that when i talked to her. -1 to intelligence.
like the hey yeah cover video i posted a few weeks back? check this one out...it's a cover of Ludacris- Yeah. This is done by the sports dude of the morning show i listen to on the way to work every morning. The video is not so hot, but the song is pretty good.
I know I haven't posted in a while..nothing real interesting has happened...work takes up a lot of my time, naturally...and nothing short of a few psycho people calling in happens there that is entertaining. I'm excited about the Bears in the playoffs, but i honestly don't expect them to get to the Superbowl..but if they happen to, then that kicks much ass. :-)
Went shopping today...I had some cash and some gift cards to blow on some things that are necessary and a few things I desired. I got a some crap from Ze TarGet...and blew a gift card at Best Buy where I got Lisa Loeb's greatest hits b/c I'm one of those chicks that goes up and sings Lisa Loeb at Karaoke....and I also finally bought the album w/ my current running favorite song...Blind Melon "no rain"....and god i'm glad I bought it...it's so good. :-)
Speaking of good music, I want each and every one of you to watch this video...it's a cover of Outkast "hey Ya"...and it's just freaking amazing...this guy sings it and plays his guitar...he's the lead singer of a band called Obadiah Parker. I promise you will love it. I love it.
I will be the first to admit that I am make-up retarded. I seriously need help with it. I never wore make-up in high school or college...and really only wear it to work now. i think i sorta have the eye make-up thing down...i could use more practice with the putting on of the eye shadow, but i've read several tips online and I think I have the general idea for that.
So what i'm asking, for those of you who are make-up GODS....keeping in mind my coloring...what colors of eyeshadow, lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, blush, etc should I be wearing while in my sister wedding. the bridesmaid dresses are black. I have purples and light/dark greens, and a neutral color for eyeshadow..I have brown, black and raisin for eyeliner, and brown and green mascara. I have no foundations. I have translucent powder both loose and compact. I have a light pinkish purple mod looking lip gloss that i bought from lancome...and no lipliner. and i don't think i have any blush either. i was planning on going to Target or wherever I need to go (preferably nowhere too spensive) within the next week.
seriously, guys, HELP.
for those of you who need a refresher of what i look like, check out the icon. Here is my coloring: HAIR: long, more golden and a bit more dull than a slightly new penny. EYES: green hazel with a brown coloring around the pupil. SKIN: PALE. few pimples around lower jawline, close to the chin. Nuetral-yellow toned.

I made White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies...and they don't suck!
Even though white chocolate is just globby nasty fat that is thrown off of regular chocolate when it's processed...vile nasty stuff IMO, but for those of you who actually like that stuff, they're pretty good.
My friend Chris used to (and maybe still does) find random posters people would put up...take them home and photoshop Captain Morgan onto it, and add mustaches to the people/things in the poster. Here are a few to enjoy...I laughed my ass off at the puppies and kitties. :-D
