Edamame and Deadliest Catch.

These are the things I’m partaking of right now.

At 12:50am.

After a seven hour shift at the taco restaurant. Which, I don’t really have the time or energy to express all the emotions that are surrounding the taco situation right now, but trust me that they are there.

I’m a whiner. And I don’t like to work hard. Or stand up for a long time.

Or clean the men’s bathroom at a taco restaurant.

But you should be proud- I only whine in my mind. Then I argue with that same whiny-brain, reminding it to be grateful for a job. Or I get Marisa to remind me. Whatevs.

Speaking of Marisa, she’s leading that Capetown trip I’m going on this THURSDAY. And I’m super pumped to tell you that my first blog post is now up on the Mocha Club blog. And obviously, I took another opportunity to build a cute blog button.


Which, of course, you are welcome to steal any of these buttons and place them on your own blog (this one or the one on my Capetown 09 page) so that your readers can keep up with my trip.  Because Tuesday, I’ll be posting a video on my attempt to pack for South Africa. Which is going to be hilarious. I hope.

Unlike the driver’s license video that I’ve been trying to make all week. And though I’m afraid it lacks in good times, and may be the least eventful video you will ever watch, I’m posting it this weekend. Because I find myself to be hilarious. So I’m apologizing right now for the deep levels of ridiculous that this video will offer- cause if funny events don’t happen [they didn’t], funny editing must happen [it will].

I talk a lot when it’s late at night. Can you tell?

    I was up later than you, but I’m not funny at that hour. I get mean or so I’m told. 😉

    Looking forward to your blogging from Africa. I’ll try to post the button on my site.

    I didn’t put the best May post on here because I’m still waiting on all the pictures from my daughter’s wedding last weekend. I’ll let you know when I post it.

    I used to be just that wacky late at night – my friends said that there was no need to get me drunk (I don’t drink – my tastebuds HATE alcohol) just keep me up late & see what happens. I find it great fun to read your late night ramblings.

    I’ll try the button thing too, but it will be my first attempt at something like that – we’ll see if I have good computer mojo today.

    Update: I was successful! But I got the button from the Mocha Club page because I couldn’t figure out how to use yours.

    And I LOVE edamame! Yum!

    And it looks like the highs are going to be in the 60s in Cape Town – so take a sweater!

    I’m done now.

    Hi Annie. I have enjoyed reading your blog during my “planning period” at work. I know you are super busy with all your doings and whatnot, but I am wondering how you designed or found the design of your blog. Also, what is this “building a blog button” you speak of? (How did you learn these wonderful tricks?) I have a cutsy little blog but want so much more for my little space in the Intergalactic world wide web. Any info would be helpful. Tons of thanks!

    I stuck a button on my blog, Annie – looking forward to reading all about your trip!
