happy new year 2006 e-strip!

On the eve of each new year we often look back to see what we did or did not accomplish, the friends we made, the friends we lost, yada yada yada. I came across this little survey and thought it would suffice. I have nowhere to go tonight and (again) no one to kiss as the bells ring the stroke of midnight. Blah. So e-strippers, I wish you joy that never ends and happiness with all your family and friends tonight!

Where were you when 2005 began?
In my parent's TV room.

Who were you with?
My father, brother and dogs.

Where will you be when 2005 ends?
I have no idea. I have not been invited to any parties.

Whom will you be with when 2005 ends?
I have no idea; there is still some time for a miracle.

Was 2005 a good year for you?
There were many changes for me this year and overall I would say they were good. I lost some stress weight, went to many events I had never been too before, made a small army of new friends and went back to school.

What was your favorite moment of the year?
I think sleeping with my nephew in my arms on Christmas morning was a precious moment that will always be dear to my heart.

What was your least favorite moment of the year?
When my Uncle Jackie and my miniature yorkie Twigi died.

Did you fulfill your New Year goals for 2005?
Yes, I went back to school and lost some weigh.

Did you fall in love in 2005?
No.

Did you make any new friends in 2005?
Tons!

What was your favorite month of 2005?
September: 30th birthday, new job, started school.

Did you travel outside of the US in 2005?
Only Canada. Sad, I know. I expect more of myself in this department. 2006 will be much different.

How many different states did you travel to in 2005?
Not many this year: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Tennessee.

Did you lose anybody close to you in 2005?
Yes. My Uncle Jackie and my miniature yorkie Twigi.

What was your favorite movie that you saw in 2005?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

What was your favorite song from 2005?
Mr. Brightside by the Killers

What was your favorite album from 2005?
Moby: Hotel

Did you do anything you are ashamed of this year?
Nothing comes to mind.

What was your proudest moment of 2005?
I think venturing to the 10k party by myself to meet new people. In general, I have fearlessness for adventure, but this did take some courage on my part.

What was your most embarrassing moment of 2005?
I cannot think of anything.

If you could go back in time to any moment of 2005 and change something, what would it be?
Mmm, maybe I would decline to go on a particular date. Maybe I learned something from the aftermath, or strengthened some aspect of myself, but I feel I could have done well enough without the drama.

What are your plans for 2006?
Keep plugging away at school
Continue to seek out professional development opportunities
Go to the World Cup (soccer) in Germany
Visit my friends and family across Europe
Explore D.C. for the first time
Go snowboarding
Lose weight
Compete in at least one triathlon
Visit my friends in Brazil, Argentina and Chile
Visit my little sister when she has her baby
Get my ass out to Cedar Point and ride those fantastic roller coasters
Explore Montreal
Help others in whatever fashion I can

Happy Christmas!

Nothing says Happy Christmas morning like a sparkling mimosa! I spent the wee hours of the morning sleeping with my nephew in my arms. He smells so good. It was a precious moment I'll never forget. Have a good on estrip. Spread the love. Ciao.

here in mississippi

So this was the smoothest air travel I've ever experienced! (e:Uncutsaniflush) and (e:Leetee) dropped me off at the airport (thanks again), I walked right up to the counter and self-checked in, walked right through security, got on my plane. WOW.

I have to say, I've been to many airports, but Detroit has made some awesome changes. I was completely mesmerized by the connection corridor between concourse A and C. It must be 1/4 mile long. It was a tunnel, and the ceiling and walls were lighted panels of changing colours. The colours shifted and warbled along with this totally ambient music. It was like a cross between being underwater and riding Space Mountain. It was so spectacular I just wanted to sit down for a while and enjoy it. If I hadn't been in such a trance I would have taken a picture. I will try to remember on my return trip because my description is not doing it justice.

When I arrived we had to take my dad shopping. He's been here 2 days and they still couldn't find his luggage. Yeah, I love shopping the tall guys sections of Penny's for my dad's whitey tighties. Yay. He needed some sneakers too since all he had were his snow boots. As it turns out, they had these super cute pink stripe ADIDAS sneaks on sale for me, so I splurged.

We finally made it back to the house and I met my darling nephew. Oh Max is too friggin cute! I will post photos no doubt. Meanwhile, ya'll have a Happy Christmas or whatever you do or don't celebrate. Off to bake more cookies while everyone is passed out sleeping. I have some other surprising news but I have been forbidden to share it just yet. Hold onto your butts, it's a shocker! Ciao!

(e:Theecarey) said it all in her entry [inlink]theecarey,68[/inlink]
Many, many, many beers later........

image
sushi from wegmans, not bad!

image
delish

image
laughing so hard while playing pool, i almost pissed myself

image
so i had this brilliant idea to play with hot wheels in the basement, but i just sat in place as the wheels spun round

image
so we shoot some trashcan basketball

image
and then try sledding down the stairs on matresses

image
and again

image
then began the matress diving competition

image

image

image

image

image
after 30 minutes of this we were hot and sweaty

image
so we cooled off and opened the T & A Saloon

image
give us a break, we were drunk

image
then we started riding tricylces through the halls

image

image
carey ran into that wall

image
and shortly after taking this shot

image
i took a spill rounding a corner too fast - don't drink and drive kids!

image
presents!

image
and the night ends with a sleepy and sore good-bye

Now I'm off to shower, pack my backpack and fly down to Mississippi to meet my darling nephew! Latas kids, ciao!

pk growed up

My ex-boyfriend's little brother just found me on myspace. He and I were great buds. I used to 'babysit' him a lot and we'd get pizza and play video games until 5am. When he got a little older we'd go surfing and get lunch. I taught him how to snowboard too. Anyhow, he posted this photo of us from when I visited California last Christmas. I thought it was so sweet and it made me smile ear to ear. Now that he finally turned 21 I can't wait to get back out to Cali so we can go dancing! Ciao.

beautiful cleavage

I went to a theme party the other night titled 'Red or Dead'. I thought it was clever. You had to dress in red or dress as a person who is dead. I would have gone all out, as I love costumes, but I did not have much notice. I opted to bust out my handy medieval dress, renaissance boots, and a sword and go as Joan of Arc.

As I approached the food table I heard, 'Timika you have very beautiful cleavage'. In many instances, I would be so turned off by a comment like that. Yet, it was said with such sincerity that I was quite flattered. How often does a girl hear that from a guy that does not want to get in her pants? Anyhow, here are a few shots of the evening. Ciao.

snow party follies

I had a lovely time at the Snow Party. I had the opportunity to meet some new peeps, including (e:Jessbob), (e:Beast), (e:Imk2), and (e:Enknot). It took me a moment when I woke up this morning to remember why I had writing on one of my breasts. Without further delay....

sarah started spanking mike with his belt

image
then she tried to pull his pants down and he chased her into the kitchen

image
more crack

image
back in the living room, mike got pantsed

image
he retaliated but failed to pants sarah

image
jessica comforted him

image
then mike decided he was famous and sarah and i were his groupies.....

image
.....so he autographed our breasts

image
but the real star of the show is basra

thank you and good night

scrape, scrape, scrape dat ice

I had my work party tonight. Sorry to say I have no exciting stories like (e:Mike)'s Eckerd story, but what do you expect from a private Franciscan institution? They had free beer and wine, so I was stoked. Apparently, they do not believe in any type of de-icing agent here at Hilbert. I skated all the way across campus on this lovely sheet of ice. Thankfully (e:frogedelic) gave me a ride back to my building.

This was funny. One of our fellow GA's was walking us out the doors when he reaches into his coat pocket and says "what is this"...then pulling out a little Santa figurine. How random.
