Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac

While I appreciate the possibility of classes being canceled on Monday and having an excuse to lay around in doors all day I'm bummed that I might have to postpone dropping my car off at the body shop to get fixed *mehhh*.

The past 2 days its felt like Isaac was already here with all this rain and gloominess. I'm hoping it's not as bad as people are making it out to be. It's still just a hurricane warning for us here in Miami but most people are acting like it's going to be another Hurricane Andrew which was a category 5. I feel bad for Malikai if this hurricane hits he's not going to enjoy being stuck inside for hours. He's 85+lb so just throwing some newspaper on the ground like most people do with little dogs is not an option. Poor guy is not going to enjoy his first hurricane experience.  I have to wake up at 8am to see if my manager decides to stay closed tomorrow or to open up. Closing would make more sense since most people don't go out much when it's crappy weather anyway but we'll see.

I had more to write about but my mind just went blank because I got distracted playing this flash version of Portal and this on and off rain outside my window is putting me to sleep. So time to curl up with Malikai and attempt to stay up until Boyfriend gets home (I'll probably pass out within 30min) while watching Psych on Ion Television, it's the only decent channel in my boyfriend's room and I'm too tired to actually watch anything on  Netflix.

Hopefully Isaac doesn't do much damage to us tomorrow...or Monday whenever the heck it's suppose to actually hit us. Although there are a few people I'd love to see swooped away by Isaac *insert evil grin*

I have no idea what to do with myself! Fall classes don't start till next week and I don't work till the weekend so today was my free time day. I also didn't let myself leave the house because I'm completely broke and it was safer to stay inside to prevent myself from spending a single dime.

What did I do then? I finally got around to cleaning out my bathroom cabinet under the sink. It was so full of stuff you couldn't even see the bottom and NOW it has a bunch of extra room for more stuff.. not that I need more stuff. I had a bunch of half empty bottle of lotions and products from who knows how long ago so I rinsed the out and threw them in the recycling bin. Then wiped down the whole cabinet. Yay productivity!

I also sat around and watched Robin Hood: Men in Tights. love that movie!! I have a mole? I also continued my 5 days adventure of creeping through Epbot. I discovered the blog a while ago(which is surprising since I've been reading Jen's other site Cakewrecks for a long time now) I recently decided to go ALLL the way back to the beginning and reading every blog entry. Yes I know creep status but that blog is full of EVERYTHING I love. I want to try every craft she does! Seriously It's amazing.

While creeping I stumbled across a book review for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I watched the video she posted along with it about the making of the book trailer and it was so stunning! I love the sight of old abandoned places full of history the scenes gave me chills. I watched the finished trailer as well and it's definitely going to be on my to-read list. Go here to read Jen's review on the book and see the making of video and here is the book trailer 

Now I'm going to finally watch Exit Through the Gift shop A film by graffiti artist Banksy. I love a lot of his stuff and am interested to see the film.

Blinkin! Fix your boobs; you look like a bleedin' Picasso!

I don't care what anyone says Robin Hood: Men in tights is one of the funniest movies ever.

'Let's get out of this ladies clothing and get into our tights!'

That is all

Because I'm such a dog owner and since my dog just turned 2 years old this month this is a post about him.

We got Malikai when he was 3 weeks old because his mother was pushing them away and they had to fight to feed. He was born on a friend's plant nursery. My boyfriend and I went not actually sure if we would take a puppy home but after seeing them I could NOT walk away without one. Of course we ended up getting the biggest one! he's a little over 85lb.

He technically picked us as his new owners. I was crouching down pointing at the puppies and he trotted up to me all goofy, wrapped hiss tiny little mouth around my finger and started trying to drag me along with him to wander around the nursery. A few minutes later he walked up to my boyfriend, plopped down on his shoe and started mindlessly gnawing at his laces. There was NO way we were not getting him. He lived at home with my father and I for a bit and now he's living at my boyfriend's house completely spoiled :)

We have no idea what breed he is both his parents had no distinct looks they were just skiddish street dogs. We've gotten Rottweiler, German Shepard, Pitbull,  and even Great Dane because of his lanky-ness but we have no idea. Butt he is our beautiful mutt none the less. I honestly couldn't live without a dog. I've had dogs and pets in general my entire life. Sometime I like animals way more than I like most people. Here is my beautiful furry pup:
                                          4 weeks old. EEP!!! He was so tiny
I need a better recent photo but that's my big goof ball!!

Now I start

This is just a bit of a ramble of an incident that happened recently that's still in my head

Sometimes I wonder how people can be so horrible and stupid. This planet is full of horrible stupid people. 

3 weeks ago I spent 4 days in the hospital with my best friend. She was riding her bike to work and was hit by a car. The lady ran a red light, possibly because she wasn't even looking at the road, and she didn't stop until she felt the hit. The worst part? She ran! How do you run over a human being and then drive away like nothing. One of the witnesses says she stopped some distance away and ran up to my friend to ask is she was okay then jumped back in her car after a few seconds and ran.. seriously? If the person is laying on the floor unconscious with their head gushing blood clearly they aren't okay!

Of the two people who stopped( yes only two people stopped to help an injured person laying in the street, but being that this is Miami it's no surprise) neither was able to get the lady's tag information. So all we had was the description of her car and of her face. Which wont help with how many people live here.

My BF is fine though  she escaped with just two deep gashes on her forehead and road rash on her left arm. It could have been much worse. But now every time she looks down at her arm where they performed the skin graph or whenever she touches the scar on her head where she lost feeling she'll be reminded that some idiot ran her over and got away. 

I just hope karma truly comes around for that woman and that what she did haunts her. I just can't accept that she gets off that easy. We think she might have ran due to not having a license or maybe not being legal in the US or some other reason. But still no excuse for hitting someone and running. She shouldn't have run a red light and not been looking at the road. I'm just so mad that she got away! That's it. How does that happen. How does a good person get run over and have to suffer and the idiot gets away. 

The hospital experience was awful too. It was my friends first time being hospitalized and a good amount of the nurses treating us pretty bad. Luckily some of our friends came by the hospital every day to keep my BF and I entertained and help me with her. The first two days she really couldn't do anything herself. Those people who came by the hospital to see her and the few good nurses and doctors we had(key word few) helped restore our faith in humanity and reminded us that there are truly good people in the world along with the crappy people.

Hello world

I think I've made and deleted a million blogs over the years but I hope I stick with this one even though I'm not completely happy with blog name but I can fix that eventually. I was using wordpress for a bit but I felt I wasn't "pro" enough for it and I still love blogger no matter what. I am determined to try and write as frequently as possible. Let's see how this adventure goes.
