links have so many tricks to your blog. all these blue words that can be clicked on and they immediately take you to a new site or a different post. it has always intrigued me. so today i attempted to learn how to do that. and yes, i figured it out. are you all impressed??!!!??!!! i am so thrilled. thanks rebecca for inspiring me. :D i hope you ALL click on those links that will take you to the etsy site and shop of the person who makes those labels.

help me! too many decisions

back before i got married i slaved over making cute return address labels on the computer. it took me hours to choose a font and style. of course now that we have moved i have approx. 100 left that i can't use. so now i want to have new ones. the thing is, etsy has a TON of super cute labels and it should Italicrequire very little time to choose one. WRONG. i have spent well over 2 hours going through 43 pages of personalized return address labels and i still can not make a decision. one thing i have found weird is that most of them are round. why? why round? is it the new thing to put the return address label on the back of the envelope rather than the top left hand corner on the front? did i miss the memo? maybe i am old fashioned but i want it on the front!!! so that limits my options (and of course the majority of the ones i LOVE are round...ugh). so here are some that i am trying to decide between. any and all opinions are welcome. :D

amyzo this one you can choose the # of owls anywhere from 1-6. (and you all know i love owls!)

juicebox creations simple and cute

amyzo also cute but maybe kind of kidish? cute or cutsy?

amyzo obviously we would get labels with a 'd'.

avie is this one too girlie?

the tribe has spoken

i am really looking forward to Feb. 11......wait for it......wait for it.......... SURVIVOR: HEROES VS. VILLAINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! man it's gonna be phenomenal!

so i have some thoughts about a bunch of the survivors for this season. i have not seen all of the seasons but i know a fair number of these contestants and some of them i enjoy, and others i really don't like....mostly the villains, SURPRISE! :D

Amanda: the look in her eyes says it all.

Candice Woodcock: who?? yeah she wasn't a major player....and wow what an unfortunate last name.

Cirie: love, love, love her! brilliant idea to have an exile island alliance. too bad the others didn't follow through.

coach: really don't like this guy. he is way worse than russell and russell is bad. dragon slayer?? really?

colby: also love this survivor. he is awesome. but i hate that jerri is gonna be on the same season, she was way too infatuated with him.

courtney: meh, could care less, not not much less.

danielle: not a memorable player to me.....

james: 1 word: gravedigger...very crazy job. i like this guy!

jerri: oh gosh.....she is not even worth me commenting on her.

jt: really liked him originally but by the end of that season i started to think a little less of him. but overall i think he is an okay guy. gotta love the southern charm. ;)

parvati: i don't like her style. she used her looks to get her further in the game, but she crossed the line. getting naked with guys in some hot tub and making out with people....not cool. i have no respect her for game style.

randy: can't remember why this guy gives me an icky feeling but he just does.

boston rob: great player, but that's about it. yes he has been on survivor twice before and he has been on the amazing race, plus had a reality tv about his wedding to amber....a little over done.

rupert: like him. he's cool. he can have a temper, but he has a really giving job and he has a huge heart. i just really think he needs to be on what not to wear. the tie dye is getting old. (oh and remember the skirt he wore for a big chunk of the season? haha)

russell: don't like him as a person (or at least the person he is in the game) but i think he had a great strategy and he could have won. it's insane that he found so many immunity idols without clues. gotta give him props

sandra: i must have missed this season. apparently she won.

stephanie: i have mixed feelings. i like her, she is a good player. she outlasted her whole tribe, but she isn't my fav. maybe a little too strong of a personality.

sugar: i like her. she's a little odd, but i think she is sweet and she took being sent to exile a million times really well.

tom: i like him. nothing bad to say.

tyson: he is SO funny but also really weird. he will add great comic relief.

i really thought that richard was going to be on this season and I also expected more true heroes. too bad that roger is most likely too old to be on this season, he is so awesome. my favourite survivor ever!! i also really liked elizabeth that season.

tears of embarrassment

day time tv always has the most pathetic commercials. examples: "check into cash", "have you been injured in a car accident?", "call 1-888-2 300". if you know any of these commercials you know what i am talking about. today, while watching people's court, a really poorly done commercial came on. i immediately teared up. i know, i know, why am i crying over a commercial? here's the thing. when i am embarrassed for people i often tear up. recently a friend was telling me and a few other friends a story and i was really embarrassed for this person. they didn't seem embarrassed but i teared up anyways. if it was me i would have cried and NEVER told anyone the story without the preface of my embarrassment. watch the commercial....let me know if you feel embarrassed for the poor actors. :S
