Gosh dang it

Alright so, as I told you, I've been going to the gym early in the morning at SAIT (I don't know if you knew it was at SAIT...but well now you do). And I have no idea if there's any parking you don't have to pay for there if you're just going to the gym. SO, to make it easier for myself, I've been parking in the SEARS parking lot and walking the 5 minutes to the gym. Anyways, since I've been parking there, I've always noticed this sign.

But I never took this sign seriously because tons of people park here and walk over to SAIT! But the thing is, I used to go only in the evening when there's tons of vehicles there, so how are they even going to enforce that?
NOW, when I get there at 6 AM, I'm the only vehicle there...so it's pretty obvious. So today I come out from my workout (at 7:30 AM) to find something on my windshield. I could see it from a bit away so I was thinking...NooOooooOOOO! But thank goodness it was just a warning. Basically it just reiterated the fact that I was neither shopping at SEARS (which doesn't open until 9:30), nor was I an employee.

"You always park at SE corner before 7:00 AM everyday {nice grammar there, hey?}. Your truck will be ticketed/towed next time parked here while attending SAIT etc. THX {yes they really put thx...}"

Great... I know I'm in the wrong here. I know it's private property. But my poor little truck isn't hurting anyone for 1.5 hours when the store isn't even open! It's just unfortunate, and I'm unsure of what to do now :(

Boo for meow :(!

Greek Yogurt?

So Greek Yogurt is the topic. Have you tried it? What do you think of it??

I had tried it once before (plain and on it's own) and I wasn't a huge fan because it's thicker than normal yogurt and it just kind of reminded me of sour cream. Next I tried the honey Greek Yogurt...which was so sweet and a struggle to finish...even worse than the plain. But what I've tried recently is this Strawberry flavored. And I find it so delicious! It still is a bit thicker than regular yogurt...but it reminds me of a dessert; a delish cream cheese dessert. Really I just want to add little crumblies to it and nom it all up.

Try it if you're a fan of strawbs and cream cheese ;) I also had it with real strawbs.

So it was a pretty (lame) tame weekend. I worked Saturday, so Friday after work I kept it pretty easy at home. Saturday was pretty well the same after work. I was going to get some productivity in (like clean my pig sty of a room...) but, well...I didn't! SO now I'm going to have to work on that throughout the week.

So last week, when I got my eyes checked in Lethbridge...I decided it was about time for some new glasses. So new glasses I got! (And jeez...they're pretty expensive). But these are them! World, meet my new Ray Ban's. Ray Ban's, meet the world. They're alrightish hey? Well regardless...I like my nerdy hipsterish looking glasses, so there!

Annnndddd yes. That's basically it. Bird is the word. Or word is the bird or something.

Ta ta for meow :)!

I just can't do it...

Ya...it's been awhile but I got caught up in life and keeping Lambie amused ;) She has now left...so safe journeys and I shall miss you!

So it's been back to reality here lately. Got back from Lethbridge Wednesday night, so it was back to work (and lots of catch up to do) on Thursday. Then Lambie flew out on Friday and now I'm left all to my lonesome! Wait...didn't I have friends at one point?? Shoot.
Maybe I should get back on that.
One thing I do miss, however, is my fine fellow! He's been gone for a couple weeks now and probably has another week left to go. :( But the good news is...he should be back for quite a while this time :D

I've gotten back on the working out in the morning train. You didn't know that was a train? Well, it is...it's just kind of an unpleasant one which I probably wouldn't recommend at this point. ;) But things can change?
There are a couple nice things about it though...1. It gives you kind of a boost of energy for the day (or sucks you dry...) and 2. It gives you time in the evening after work to do as you please (you know, hang out with all the friends...that are....somewhere around here...).
Major con of it all -- Less sleep. You know how much I love sleep and this schedule shaves about an hour and a half off of the already precious sleeping time. But maybe it's worth it??
But in all actuality, it's going alright so far ;)

So, when I was younger I used to like bananas (when I was 4/5ish). But I found out my sister (whom I looked up to) didn't like them so I decided I didn't either, and stopped eating them. The past few years, I've tried eating bananas again because well, they're great for you and they're cheap! But I just can't do it! I tried again, just this morning...it always goes the same way.

I took a bite and thought 'Alright, I can do this...it's not so bad'
But as I go further it becomes 'I don't know about this...I'm not even quite halfway'
Halfway...'Just do it! You can do this! Power through!'
Just past half way is when the gagging starts (and yes...I seriously gag)
3/4...'I'm done...I'm never doing this again'
I try! Really I do! I just can't do it... :(
I can eat banana bread and have bananas in smoothies and such. But their texture is just so squishy and foul. So no bananas for me, thanks.

Stop looking at me banana!
(This should trigger a memory...Stop looking at me _____!)
(Adam Sandler movie...come on...you can do it!)

And that's all for now. What's up world? Any stories or tidbits or excitement??

Toodles for meow :)!


Alright, So lately I've really been liking THIS song. It's called Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye. He has such a soothing voice and it's so catchy... Really, I could listen to it again and again (and I totally do...). BUT! Lately this cover has been floating around. It's pretty awesome as well! Jeez....who'd have thought so many people could play a guitar...

I find even just this video so amusing.
The guy on the left doing the percussion...he's so in his own world, he doesn't sing or look at the camera.
The chick, has such a sweet and pretty voice.
The guy in the middle tries to close his eyes to keep himself from looking at the camera. But he does keep looking and you catch him trying to suppress a grin a couple of times. And when he gets to the high part of the chorus, he lifts his eye brows :)
The main singer, well...he's just good. Has a nice rough sounding voice.
And the guy on the end is so essential! You flick those little strings man!
I love it :)!
(Ya, I'm weird...what of it?)

Quick post from inside a theatre!

Posting again from Lethbridge and we're about to see...Extremely Loud and...something something (I can't remember) with my mother, Lambie, and another sissy (sister).
It's cheap Tuesday, hooray!

I've been up to hanging out, visiting, relaxing, and appointments. Got my teethies cleaned today and my eyes checked yesterday.

I know this is kind of boring...but I'm in a hurry! And not a lot of exciting news to share as of late.

Hope all is well out there :D

Toodles for meow :)!

Oh! I saw W today! So shout out to her :3

Blue skies and smooth sailing!

Why hello there~! It's been a few days...I've missed you too!

(hugs all around, kissy face and all that) ;3

I'm quite unsure as to the reasoning...but my blog is just not cooperating.

It won't align left - so center you get!

It's bugging me :(

Oh well...

SO! As I believe I told you, Lambie is in town! And this weekend we decided to go on an adventure (we both had a few things to get done down here).

So our day all started out with laying around not leaving the house!

Just kidding...that's just my dream day {just kidding, sort of... >.>}

So our day started off with a road trip! And boy, was it a pretty drive!

Nice scenery, decent weather, good tunes, great company and just overall fun times.

Lambie and I~! :D

Not to mention she has a pretty sweet rental vehicle...Lincoln MKX!

And this was the view for most of the drive.

The mountains were so so clear!

One nice roadtrip/peaceful driving song can be found here :)

And now, here's to a few days off of work ;)

What did you all get up to on your weekends?

What's new out there world??!

Ciao for meow :)!

Why hey there!

I went to the gym last night...the walk there is about 5 minutes, and it's far too cold!
Regardless, I got a good workout in and I'm sore today! (especially my shoulders...).

Please sign up below to give me a massage ;3

Story of sorts...

*que sad music with violins and such*

Ok, my story starts long ago (this morning at 7:15). I was staying with my sister Lambie at her hotel and I had to go start my vehicle {of course...as it's -30 or even colder} to let it run for 15 minutes before going in to work. Little did I know, my vehicle would actually end up running for a good hour and 20 minutes.

Basically, I was trying to figure out a way to have my car running while also preventing it from being stolen and well....I guess I succeeded. (Succeeded so well that I couldn't even get in...) And do I have spare keys for this vehicle? Of course not!
So I called a locksmith to come break into my car! And jeez, they're fast. He got in within 5 minutes! He told me the total would be $120. :( He then said if I paid cash, it could be $100! Of course this would be the time I didn't have cash. I asked if we could go to an ATM, at first he agreed but then we realized that traffic was probably too bad.
I reached into my wallet to grab my handy dandy VISA {which children's show is this making a reference to??? :D :D :D} when LO AND BEHOLD I had forgotten about my tithing money in my wallet :D So $100 it was! (And he didn't write up an invoice...so I'm sure he just pocketed the cash, I realized afterwards that I should've said I only had $80 cash...oh well). Pay your tithing ;) (Don't worry...I'll be replacing the $100).
I made a spare key immediately after.

The end. Fin.

Moral of the story: Don't lock your keys in your car. Also have spare keys.

There really should be some sort of law about it being too cold to leave the house and work being cancelled and the likes.

PS. Please pity me and send a donation to the 'Trudy is an idiot fund'. Kthx. :3

baby skunk!

It is bloody cold! Like really really cold! D: I've been inside for about an hour now and I still feel chilled to the very core of my being. So basically, winter was being awesome and mild and spring like and then it decided that it hated all of us and dumped on all of our heads. It's cold. Me no likey. Period.

This is what I'm talking about... (except I see a little peek of skin!)

I found these by google images-ing 'Bundled Up', look at the cute puppy :3

So....I suck at posting on the weekends, but that's alright. Like I still get a blog up significantly more often than I used to. But here we go. So Friday night after work I told you about the little dinner party - it was delicious! And so was our dessert~! Maybe sometime I'll post the recipe, but probably not ;) And for dinner we had crepes with broccoli, chicken, almonds, and a white delicious garlic(?) sauce. It was good, 'nuff said. We also went to see Sherlock Holmes 2, I don't know why it's been judged so critically...but I thought it was alright! (Minus the fact that we were in the very front row which wasn't the most ideal location...but oh well!) But if you enjoyed the last one at all, this one was pretty good ;)
Saturday I finally got my sleep in :D! And did a little work out and hanging out with the fine fellow.
Sunday was Stake Conference and the last hang out with the fine fellow before he headed back to work :'( I misses you!
And now here we are to Monday! I actually am getting some blood work done again so I got to get the blood drawn today and also a urine sample (yay?). Too much time has been spent outside for my likings. Ideally, I wouldn't have been outside at all today.

Anyways, bundle up! Or just live the good life for me and stay inside....

At least give me the dog. Kthx.

Brr and toodles for meow :)!

PS. LAMBIE is coming to visit for a bit and she flies in today. YAY!

Friday, January 13, 2012


So it's finally Friday, and you know what that means! Well...I don't entirely know what it means. But yay weekend! Sweet sweet weekend and sweet sweet sleeping in on Saturday morning ;D Oh baby!

Alright, so what did you get up to last night? Because you may or may not have (ok, probably not... who am I kidding ;3) noticed that I didn't get up in hur! {Sorry...}. So! Fine fellow and I are heading to a little dinner party tonight with his cousin and cousin's wife and we're bringing the dessert! So you know what we did last night? We went on a grand adventure! It all started with a little driving...there was a cactus and tumbleweed - ok, I'm kidding. We made a dessert ;) And it SEEMS like it'll be delicious but I cannot guarantee such a thing as I have yet to try it. I shall let you know how it is.

Julian Perretta. Have you heard of him? If not...check it out (and your welcome). First off, his fro is delightfulsome! Second, the credit for finding him has to go to a blog I read...so thanks Sarah from Wearing It On My Sleeves (you should probably check her out, she's a fashion blogger and she's quite funny/fun to read).

I would've done a 5 things...but I didn't have a list of 5 things to make! So sorry! (You could help a sista out you know...).

Anyways, peace and love! (I have no idea where that came from).

Byeas for meow :)!

Reese bars you better start reproducing...

Hi there! My name is Trudy and today seemed to be pretty swell!

And it's all because it included this beauty! I don't know if I've told you this before... but I LOVE Reese bars! They're so marvelous - MUCH better than the cups. So here I was, minding my own business, staring at the package, when I noticed something...



LIMITED EDITION!?!? What in the name of delicious Reese bars is this world coming to??!?

So I immediately did the only logical thing I could think of and called the Hershey hotline (1-800-468-1714 if you were wondering). The conversation went as follows:
Mr Hershey Man: Let's start with your last name and postal code.
Me: Johnson and T2E-7A4
MHM: Alright Miss. Johnson, how may I help you today?
Me: Well you see, I was looking at my Reese bar here...and I noticed it says Limited Edition. How limited edition is that exactly...?
MHM: If you give me the UPC I can check on that for you.
Me: *gives UPC*
MHM: Alright, so you're wondering about the Reese bar...correct?
Me: ...yes...
MHM: It says here those were first produced around March/October of 2010. I don't know if more will be produced... so they should be running out here fairly soon.
Me: D: That's quite tragic, they're very delicious.
MHM: I'm sorry to hear that.
Me: So am I. Thanks for the information.
MHM: Anything else I can help you with?
Me: No thanks, that's all I was wondering.
MHM: Alright, you have yourself a 'sweet' day Miss Johnson.
Me: You too... (is sad inside, even with his awesome use of words...)

Based on a true story. And it resulted in a sad Trudy....

Stocking up on Reese Bars begins now.

(I'd like to think I made that man's day a little better...)

Tuesday, January 10, 2012


It's only Tuesday?! D;
I'm wishing for the weekend already...

But hope you all are enjoying your regular or hey, even irregular Tuesday activities. Eat something delicious and do a little dance.

Monday, January 9, 2012

Well look who didn't blog for 2 whole days!

This girl right here ;)

And I felt like I was abandoning the whole work of no one that reads my blog...

But never fear invisi-followers, for Trudy has returned! (love you <3)

So I have a confession for you all...I was gone all weekend because I've been pursuing my real dream of Mexican Wrestling :D (like nacho here)!

(huge red diaper is included!)

Ok, maybe not...but awesome mask hey? ;) (my brother just got back from a vacation in Mexico, which he said he wouldn't recommend to anyone. Terrible food and not a lot to do but drink and lay on a beach).

Oh update! Remember a while back I talked about a couple books I was reading? (see here) Well I finished both of them :D and now I can move on to bigger and better things! (like the second book in the Eragon series; Eldest -.-)

Read all the books!

And yes! That's all I've got for ya!

How was your weekend? Get up to any Mexican wrestling? ;)

Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I thought Nacho Libre was a very stupid movie but so funny! Like look at this... !!! or this! So dumb :'D

Friday, January 6, 2012

Soooo yes

It's the weekend! Fine fellow is back and we're getting gussied up and heading OUT (to a YSA activity...because we're cool like that).

5 Things Friday
Best things about the weekend edition!

1. You generally get to sleep in (not if you work or go to church really...) and sleeping is awesome. No alarms = the good life.

2. There's generally a reason to get all purdied up. During the week I usually have absolutely no motivation nor reason.

3. Being able to relax a little bit...Not worry so much about schedules and business and such (unless you work...wow, working really ruins your life...).

4. Doing something fun! Weekends are usually a time to do something exciting that you don't normally do! (or in our case, head to a YSA activity ;) ).

5. Potentially see people you don't really get to see during the week, or even splurge a little more on what you eat ;)

(the fine fellow also mentioned that traffic isn't so terrible during rush hour on the weekend...especially in the morning! When I head to work Saturday morning, it's smooth sailing) :3

Anyways, off I fly...enjoy your weekend!

What're YOUR plans?? ;)

Ciao for meow :)!

If you can go to the aww section of reddit or into a pet store and see this and not want one....

Clearly you're either:
A) insane
B) much stronger than I...

They're so adorable D: (try not to think of them getting fat and lazy...)

To jog or not to jog...

That was the question.

So I jogged...-.- Why? I have no idea...

It wasn't too terribly cold but was it ever windy! And it resulted in this...

Dead duck for meow :)?

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Working at the car wash!

You should now have a certain song playing in your head...or a certain scene from a certain movie. And yes, you should be thinking of Labyrinth :D Just kidding...unless you're always thinking of it, like me ;) (the scene from a movie I was actually thinking of is Sharks Tale...Will Smith is awesome)

Scott and I took his work truck through a "touchless laser wash" today (yes it's as exciting as it sounds) and got the Xtreme Wash! Needlesstosay it got extremely washed and shiny and looks purdy ;)

And actually that was probably the excitement of the day...unless you include showering...because I guess I did that as well?

Peace for meow :)!

Trudy meets five guys!

Meaning five guys burgers and fries. And it was dericious! Nicely seasoned and tasty fries, and a marvelous burger (and I don't really eat burgers) that seemed, pretty well, home made! For realz...check it out ;)

Another thing I've been introduced to...the aww section of reddit. Pretty well every post, without fail, has me literally 'aww-ing' ;) so you should definitely check that out as well! And give me oodles of puppies and kittens ;3 kthx!

Trudy over and out.

Toodles for meow :)!

Sunday, January 1, 2012


Blog you've ruined me. You made me (yes, it is all your fault) post for the whole month of December and now it feels strange not getting the daily post up! -.- jeez...
Do I have anything important to talk about? Not at all!

I'm sure I won't be able to get a post up everyday but well, I can get one up today ;)

So how were your New Year's festivities?? Get a kiss? *kissy face kissy face* :*

I, however, am a lady and would never kiss and tell ;)

Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- this will seem lame...but my eye is hurting today :( I don't know what it is...it doesn't really look different from the other one, doesn't seem like there's anything in there upsetting it, and there doesn't appear to be any stye there. What do I do?!? D; >.o
