Screw Chili's

Dear friends, I HAD planned to do the next day of my photo challenge (a picture of your day) Sunday, because I had a GREAT day Sunday. Chris and I went to the zoo in the perfect weather and had fun. We decided to eat at Chili's after that. Sunday might around 9 was not so fun. I got food poisoning from some undercooked chicken crispers (just saying that makes me want to barf). I vomited and had other nasty bodily functions (you can guess. moving on...) from about 11 til 5 in the morning. My mom said ( I don't remember much) that I fainted three times. My dad had to carry me to the truck to take me to the ER because I couldn't even walk. I remember at one point thinking I was dying and I had hoped that when I did die, that it would be faster. I have never been so sick in my entire life. Yesterday I got out of the bed twice for a total of maybe 2 minutes. It feels like Monday didn't even happen since I slept through nearly all of it. Today I've been drinking sprite like it's going out of style and finally got the strength up to get a bath tonight. My mother called Chili's yesterday and a manager should be getting back to me by tomrorow. Should be interesting.
So here's a few picture of my GREAT day Sunday:

Don't eat at Chili's.
Bad things happen to good people.

"to care for him, who shall have borne the battle"

It took me days to come up with something for this. After thinking about it, one thing stuck in my mind.
Photo Challenge Day 20...ish:
A picture of something I wish I could change.

The VA healthcare system is a joke. A big friggin joke. We build them up, send them off to war, and when they come back with PTSD we pump them with just enough meds to make sure they don't off themselves on our watch.
I wish I could change the VA healthcare system.

Hi! I'm Steve-O!

I had the greatest weekend with the husband! Friday night we went to Cheesecake Factory for the first time. Wow. How had I never been there before? We got strawberry cheesecake to go and then went to the Marriot for the night just for kicks and giggles. It's special because that's where we spent our wedding night. =) The next day we got up and had lunch at Superior Grill where we had the greatest cheese dip we've ever had. That night we planned on going to the Comedy Club so we had about 5 hours to kill so we went back to the Summit (a nice outdoor mall) and walked around for a while. It was so pretty outside. It would've been perfect if the wind hadn't been so bad. Still had a few hours to kill. We went to PetSmart and gawked at other people's pets and to Best Buy where we played the demo games and I bought two CDs. I can't even remember the last time I bought a CD. STILL had time to kill so we went the galleria and made a lap around both floors. NOW it was time to head to the Comedy Club.

Steve-O from Jackass was the headliner and he was AWESOME! I couldn't get over how great he looked after being clean and sober for 3 years. For his tricks he balanced a cup of water on his head and drank the whole thing without touching it (don't think too hard about that), balanced a butcher knife on his face, squeezed fresh cut lemon juice in his eyes, and for the finale he LIT HIS HEAD ON FIRE with Big Sexy Hair hairspray. Holy cow. That's why he looks so ashy in the picture because he just got extinguished. Haha.

It's an awful picture but here's me with Steve-O. Of course I was awkward and didn't know what to say to him besides "..hi!" and "you look great by the way". Chris said "He probably thinks you want to be a groupie." Great. Alyssa, can you be any more of a dork?

Chris with Steve-O. A much better picture (because of a much better photographer).

Since we did so much this weekend it looks like Valentines Day night will be spent with take-out, watching (hopefully) romantic movies. Can't wait!

Had a bad day. I'm beginning to see a pattern here. Maybe it was because it was Monday, but the day just started off bad. I woke up fighting mad. The day got worse and I was ready cry. And a HUGE "thank you" to whoever left me a sweet little surprise on my locker at work. I have (had) stickers that spell out my name on my locker. Someone threw out some letters, rearranged and just left "ass". You absolutely suck. You made a crap day that much worse. You can kiss my...well you know.
The only good thing about my day was that we had birthday cake for all the February birthdays. And I got an edge piece. And it was chocolate frosting. Cake fixes everything.
Day 23 (figured it out).
A picture of my favorite book.

Yes, I Twilight. Wanna fight about it? (Sorry, not going to that dark place again.) If you haven't read them, don't let the movies ruin it for you. The books are AMAZING. The original and Breaking Dawn are my faves but I've read the entire saga three times. (Nerd.)

It's Whatevs.

I have been in such a blogging funk lately. During the day randomly I"ll think "hm, I should blog about that" but when I get down to it I just...don't feel like it.
Today me and the family went to a Mexican restaurant we'd never been to before. It was ok, but Speedy's is better. We played the "Is it a Guy or a Girl?" game. That's always fun. Everyone else said they were "almost positive" it was a guy. But I'm sticking to my guns and going with girl. Guys just don't laugh like that.
I don't even know what day of the photo challenge I'm on. Whatev.
Photo Challenge Day ???:
Something I wish I was better at.

Gymnastics. Or dancing. Or anything involving balance and coordination. I have none of either. I can't even do a cartwheel. What of it? Wanna fight about it? There's one thing I'm good at. Punching faces. You're up.
This post took a wrong turn somewhere. I'm finishing my nutty buddy bar and going to sleep.
