The life and times of Hiccup and Sniffles

I have learned several things in this past week of owning guinea pigs.

For one thing, I have learned how to build an entire habitat on my own. With some assistance from the boyfriend... but I could have done it on my own. Just saying.

I also learned how to MOSTLY litter train them. Its a work in progress.

Also, guinea pigs poop... like, a lot. And often. Like, a whole lot.
I don't know how to emphasize the amount of pooping they do... its a lot.

Giving guinea pigs a bath is both cute and awful. Mostly though, trimming their nails is a bigger pain. Especially when one keeps trying to poop on you the entire time.


I've also been watching a lot of youtube videos about guinea pigs. Apparently you can teach them tricks!! I want to go to there.

In addition, google is probably very puzzled by my choice of searches lately.

That is all for now. Come again children.

They are not rats.

I have some exciting news, Internet People.

Last night, two new members joined my lil famdamily.

I would like to officially welcome them:

Hiccup "Rico Suave"


Sniffles "Johnny Bravo."

They are the two shmooshiest most adorablest guinea pigs this side of the Mississippi.

Mr. Sniffles himself. 
Hiccup Rico Suave

Frankly, I am twelve kinds of enthused about these new lil baby shmabies. 


That is all.

Diary of a Vegetarian Noob: Day 2

Last night I went to a thai restaurant and ate Tofu for the first time in many years.

And guess what?

It was not bad.

It was actually, I may venture to say it, Good. I legitimately enjoyed it.

Huh. Who knew.

A couple nights ago, I was bored and flicking through various documentaries on Netflix. I started watching "Forks Over Knives" because I'd heard it was a good film, done by James Cameron and whatnot.

Turns out, it really does make a very compelling argument for veganism/whole foods/etc. I texted a friend that happens to be a vegan, and was telling him about my curiosity. He sent me a few videos, etc.

Now, I get emails from PETA regularly, but thats really just because I like their stickers they send me once a year for free. They make me giggle. And as a consequence of this, Ive seen more than a couple of bizarre, graphic videos detailing "exploitation" of animals and cruelty, etc etc. You know the kind. I've never really bought into it anyways, though I'm not really sure why not. I guess I just like giving people the benefit of the doubt, including the farming industry. Or something. Whatever.

Anyways, I watched this one video in particular. I've embedded it here, just for kicks and giggles. It's lengthy, but still an interesting watch. It's from a guest lecturer at Georgia Tech a couple of years ago.

Well, thanks to the compelling arguments and evidence set forth by my friends and the internet, I'm going to start trying for a while to not eat meat. Now, I don't know that I would ever become a full fledged, full-on vegan, because.... cheese. Nom. But I  have already gone extensive amounts of time before without eating meat, or even really thinking about it.

How do you know I'm legit about this? Well, let me tell you.

Today at work, I turned down a free chicken biscuit from Chik Fil A.

Its like... I don't even know who I am anymore.

Who am I??

I have a problem.

I have a very intense desire to dye my hair a ridiculous color. 

Darn you, Pinterest. You always make me want to do something awesome, but taunt me with the fact that I just can't.

Why, you may ask? 

(Well, my mother is probably reading this and saying something about me looking like a goth or punk etc etc for wanting to do so.) 

I think it is relatively clear that if I actually went out and did this on a wim, that it would more or less (a little bit more than less) a complete and total career killer. 

Soooooo, Unless I got a job as an eclectic artist of some sort, I probably couldn't get away with this. Especially not as a receptionist in uptown Atlanta. 

I say PROBABLY..... maybe I can sweet talk my boss. 

Pretty sure I'm his favorite anyways. 

Which is your favorite? Which (hypothetically speaking of course) would look coolest with mah face? 

I'm partial to the shades of purple right now. I had a pink streak and a burgundy streak once upon a time. Alas, no more. It was just a charming shade of womp womp brown til I smacked some dye on top of this biznatch. Now its a rather lovely "Maple Brown." Or so says the label on the box from the drugstore. 

Classy. Like a boss.

I am aging.

And in celebration of this aging process, I think I will take a tip from this sexy mo fo and

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

That sounds appetizing.

A little while ago, I was typing "pop tarts" into a search bar of a website.

Don't ask.

For some reason, no results on this particular website weren't coming up. I was wrought with frustration and anger, knowing that the link I needed was somewhere nearby, but without a clue as to why it had hidden its cheeky little face.

After roughly five minutes, I happened to glance up at the search bar where I typed originally.

Turns out that one simple typo had prevented me from finding what I desired so strongly.

In my over-excitement, I had typed "poop tarts."

The ten year old inside me giggled for a good ten minutes. Oh how mature I am indeed.

I have a question.

Its a simple question, really.

In what world is it normal to tell someone that you just want to be friends, that there are "no hard feelings," that you "won't bother [them] anymore"; Claiming that "it just doesn't seem like its worth it to you, I don't want to waste my time."

This inevitably turns into an hours long argument and the other individual involved comes to the conclusion that you both just have very different personalities and different paces at life, relationships, and WHATEVER else you do, and chill out.

And roughly twenty four hours later, you invite that exact same person you just had this extremely bitter, resentful, guilt-filled exchange with, and you invite them.....

and this isn't even a joke, kids...

You invite that individual to take a trip to MOTHERTRUCKING PARIS with you.

As in France.
The country with the snails and shiz.



Oh. And if you hadn't gathered it by now, the answer was a resounding "I don't think so."

All hypothetically speaking, of course.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to hire somebody to punch me in the face and kick me in the groin for the next few months, seeing as that is starting to sound like a better idea than having one of these conversations ever again.

Shawty Get Loose... er?

This song has been stuck in my head for three weeks now.

This was my way of getting it out.

Enjoy, world.

Just another day in spooky uptown Dunwoody.

I'm at work right now, waiting for paperwork to finish scanning.

Its a lot of fun.


Just now, theres a woman in the hallway, just visible through the large glass windows of our office front door. From my reception desk, I can see her..... staring at me.

Just............. staring.

Its been more than three minutes of her not even moving.... just looking at me. In my eyeballs.

I'm more than mildly creeped out.

Dear mom,

If I don't come home tonight, I just wanted you to know that I love you and stuff, and whatever.... other sentimental things go in one's last will and testament. And junk.
I bequeath all my material belongings to Optimus Prime, my beloved hermit crab.
Also, please take care of my hermit crabs.

Here's hoping I'm not being watched by a serial killer.
Love, Erin.

A Reverent Visit to Alcatraz

After I graduated about a week or so ago, my parents and I went to California to visit my dad's cousins and aunt, who he hadn't seen in many much years... like unto about 40 or so. So that was grand.

While we were in Cali, we went to San Francisco, and got to visit pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, etc. We also went to Alcatraz, which was actually a pretty cool trip.

We took an audio tour, in which we had our own individual headsets that narrated the self-guided tour for us, told by real life prisoners and guards from the prison back in the day.

I took the alone time opportunity to document myself, experiencing the prison and observing the cells and grounds in extreme reverence for all that had occurred there. 

Outside, overlooking the recreation yard. 

Inside, in the room documenting all the movie posters of Alcatraz-inspired media.
In the recreation yard
Out in one of the gardens
On the benches of the rec yard off to the side of the building
In front of the Warden's house ruins
Inside a cell in the cellhouse
Inside a cell on "Broadway" 

It was an intense and invigorating experience, to say the least.
