Christina v. the Universe

Last week, I tried to blog. But then I got tired/busy/insane and didn't. So here's the quick update:
  • I had a birthday and I spent part of it at the DMV having infants a full decade younger than me make me feel old and tired. My effort on makeup and hair were pointless by the time I stepped in front of a camera... I looked like an irritated, shiny horse.
  • I spent a beautiful sunny day at Pike Place Market with my sister, and then later in the evening we met up with friends. After a few drinks, I demanded chocolate mousse. We tramped around downtown Seattle until we realized there wasn't any... ever again.
  • I sent my wayward vehicle to the doctor and cheated on it with a rental. It was lovely. I am now a fan of affairs, or at least car affairs. And my car is now okay and I had to take it back into my life (boo).
  • My friend Amber revealed to me that this website (yes, this one!) is blocked by morality filters, flagging it as "adult in nature." I am flattered.
  • "What idiocy can I vanquish today?" I yelled to the universe one morning. The universe yelled back, "None! Because I will overwhelm you with idiots!" Universe: 1, Christina: 0.
  • The best hockey game ever. That is all.
There were other things that would shock and horrify you, causing you to exclaim our rallying cry of "too pretty for this!" but the prettiness inside me is wilty right now. I want to take a vacation, but I want it to be to another time in my life, not necessarily another place. Trust me, though, when I say that I'm living through further fodder for this site.

If I can just survive it.

I'm sorry you feel like your prettiness is wilting, but I won't believe it!

And I love that you're blocked by the morality police. How did you even discover that?

Either way, congratulations on your adult content!

Oh, and super happy late birthday!

I can't believe your website has been blocked- that's so funny!

DMVs are scary places- last time I was there a guy failed the eye test and wanted to drive anyway. Uh, no.

Happy Birthday (late!)!!!

Perhaps the word Pretty tipped them off and they decided to block it (Can't have any pretty). Kind of reminds me of the "Fun Police" who don't want anybody to have any fun and will arrest those who even smile. So sad.

I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

Holy Crap...HAPPY WAY LATE BIRTHDAY!! Olson! Life apparently is just as eventful on the West Coast as it was for you on the East!

PS...sorry about the text-at-work moment, hope it is all okay now!

Happy late birthday! It is so mean how we have to spend every 5-10 of them at the DMV. Cruel, cruel joke, and not a funny one.

Hope whatever you're going through gets better soon. It's almost Spring--always a good cure for the wilties.

I just found your blog from another blog and love it so far!! Can't wait to read more :)

Ahh...being blocked by morality filters! Must have felt much like it did when I found out LU had blocked mine! :) Welcome to the dark side ;)

I challenged you in my last post...one that shouldn't be too difficult given you're "beautiful thing" posts; but this is things that make you the happiest!

Miss you Olson
