caught red handed! (with yummy deliciousness!)

Wow. Already 21 days into January. Hopefully it will conclude nicely. I'm sure it will.
Let me tell you one thing right now. I have to get this out.
I hate the Kardashian family. I REALLY do. However, I am always tuned in to their damn show. I love their stupid drama. However I love Khloe. Once I tune in, I have to finish it.
I am VERY ashamed of this, but whatever, we all have our guilty pleasures.
I'd rather have mine be a show than be something like..mass amounts of apple pie.

So Sunday I was definitely tuned in for the Golden Globes. I LOVE award shows.
Back in High School, my friend Dan and I would dress up & go to Jewel before our GGparty.
We would announce to everyone we encountered that we were headed to the Golden Globes.
It was a hoot. We would all have sheets marked with who we thought would win and would watch the pre-shows on E! Those were the days. Eric even watched it with me this year :)
Thank goodness for TiVo (24 was on) I knew what he was sacrificing.
However we both enjoy a little Ricky Gervais and knew a lot of the nominated roles.
I guess watching award shows is another guilty pleasure.
But I enjoy the Academy Awards a lot more. It goes into each movie more in detail.
However the Globes this year were pretty good and I agree with the winners for the most part.
Of course plenty of shots taken at NBC by all--(always hilarious)

Speaking of NBC the 2010 Winter Olympics are coming up soon! I cannot wait! Sunday was the day when the three Olympic contenders where chosen; Jeremy Abbott, Evan Lysacek, & Johnny Weir are those three. I am so excited. I used to train with Evan back in my skating hey day. We had the same coach for a period of time as well. I am excited he made it but I am especially excited for Johnny Weir. I recently watched a hilarious documentary on him.
Be Good Johnny Weir is the name. It has a great look into the sport of figure skating and the pressures of being competitive on a world scale. Anywho...
The Olympics inspire me like crazy. Competition season (October-March) normally does.
I think it is absolutely remarkable to see so many talented athletes in one arena.
Winter is the best because figure skating gets out there on a large scale--which is exciting.
I just cannot wait to see which American ladies are going!
I'm for Ashley Wagner & Mirai Nagasu. They both have so much potential. Moving on...

This last stretch of the week is a busy one. Work the rest of the week until Sunday. It will be good though. I need the money (Saturdays always rake in more $$--long hours).

My thoughts are always in the midst of changing my entire look. But I adore my long hair, I like it's colour (it's natural color), and I like how easy my hair is to manage. It would look ridiculous short (shoulder length-ish). I've been there. I hated it.
I always say "anyone can have short hair." You really don't hear many people with long hair saying "Oh I wish I had short hair." But you always hear a girl with short hair say;
"I'm growing it out." or "I regret cutting it."
I don't know. I just feel like my look is getting boring.
I used to change it up constantly in high school. I want to get a wig actually.
A wig with black just above the shoulder hair with straight across bangs. That'd be perfect.

So tonight Flaming Hot Cheetos have the best of me. I love this unhealthy snack indulgence. I love it because it brings me back to my youth a.k.a. high school a.k.a. 4 years ago.
But I ate this almost every day freshman year.

You could see me skipping or running down the halls ALWAYS with a bag of flamin' hots
(with red fingers to match) and bottled water. I haven't really had them since freshman year which was 2002.
So flash forward to tonight at work;
(a girl I work with right now is pregnant).
In general without the pregnancy we talk a lot about food. I'm always spurting out my cravings (I have insane cravings and have had them my whole life). So today we were talking about snack foods and I mentioned Flaming Hot Cheetos.
Like always most of the time if a food is mentioned at all in the shoppe, I end up eating it later.
Chipotle, Noodles, Panera, Subway, Pizza...etc etc. I mean how can you resist??
Plus I always try to get something healthy (with tons of veggies!)
But tonight this was not the case AT ALL. I declared I was stopping on the way home to get my beloved long lost snack item. I was worried about eating the whole bag.
Eating the whole bag I have not.
See I was worried about this. I shared how I always worry about bags/boxes of chips or snacks. I don't want to eat the whole thing! But I worry I might so I never get snacky foods like that usually. So this girl I work with tells me to just get a small bag.
No one is ever satisfied with that one bag of like 12 cheetos.
So I get the medium bag. I have consumed about half and I'm sure I'll go get more as soon as I finish this entry. The night is young. I have good spirits.
P.S. I will feel like shit later from this, I'm sure. I'll try and stay optimistic.

How cool is it that during Local On The 8's "Eminence Front" is playing?!

Now I will show you a completely random picture that has nothing to do with anything in this post!

(but I will tell you about it.)

This is the Mosta Dome located in Malta. That woman in the picture is JoAnn.
She was in my group when I traveled there. Anywho Malta was a big player in WWII.
So one Sunday during a service the church was struck by a bomb.
It came through the top of the church and fell on the floor.
It didn't go off. A faulty bomb. It was their Miracle.
This church is also the third biggest domed church in Europe.
