oh, yeah. i have a blog.

dude, i will, like, totally give my password to anyone who will write something interesting on this blog for me.

actually, i do have a really crazy story about a really crazy story that was told over dinner this weekend. and i really want to share it with you, because it's so, um, crazy. and funny.
but it's also a*

so, i think i'm going to sit here and investigate my feelings about what my blogging limits are.**

i guess i'll be back soon, if not with a crazy story, then with some sort of lame musings about what i feel is, and is not, appropriate for me to write about.

*this is a drastic understatement.
**or, more likely, i will nap.

my sister is pretty

i took this picture while we were on the sunset(read:drunk) cruise in key west.
it wasn't posed or anything, i just happened to look up and notice that my sister is pretty. so, i took a picture.

i'm quite proud of it, actually.

the avoidance dance

no, i'm not still in key west.
i wish i was still in key west, but, no.

i have been home since sunday, giving my computer sneaky side-ways glances, hoping that it won't notice that i haven't sat down to tell you the story of key-west-adventure-2006-the-second-coming.

i'm still not ready to tell that story, but i figured i should sit down and say something. so, i went searching on the infamous blog-quiz-thinger-place, and found out that...

You Are Likely a Second Born

At your darkest moments, you feel inadequate.
At work and school. you do best when you're evaluating.
When you love someone, you offer them constructive criticism.

In friendship, you tend to give a lot of feedback - positive and negative.
Your ideal careers are: accounting*, banking**, art, carpentry, decorating, teaching, and writing novels***.
You will leave your mark on the world with art and creative projects.

when i saw the title of this particular quiz-thinger, i was immediately intrigued. i mean, as much as one can be by mindless things such as this.
i thought maybe i would be able to trick the quiz, because my sibling situation is--um--a bit fucked up.

originally, i was the oldest sibling--an only child for six years until b.j. was born. b.j. and i have different fathers, and my father went on to have two more daughters--one when i was thirteen, and one when i was fifteen.**** a very clear-cut case of oldest child, right?
because when i was about fifteen i found out that my mom had a son when she was seventeen, and had to give him up for adoption. and she totally got sent off to a catholic home for un-wed mothers, and everyone she knew was told that she went to study in europe for a year--but that's another story.
when i was twenty-two, my older brother came and found us.
and he came complete with a wife and a baby.

instantly demoted to the second sibling.
but, also instantly promoted to having a brother in a formerly all-girl famile, and--best of all--i became an aunt.

anyway, the point is, i am rather surprised that this quiz got me right.
i think you should all try it, and let me know how accurate it is.

in the meantime, i'll sit here and try to think of something more interesting to write about.

*accounting? no. i cannot count. at all.
****i never lived in the same house as my two youngest sisters, and i'm also a lot older than them. i love them to pieces, of course, but we've just never really had the opportunity to be very close. this is where i have to admit that myspace actually is a useful thing. since i got
myspace a couple of months ago, i 'talk' to my little sisters a lot more. and, as it turns out, they are very funny, witty, smart little ladies. i'm so proud of them, and i'm so glad i'm getting to know them better.

classic tiffany moment # forty-four thousand eleventy hundred and two

the balcony at rick's, overlooking duval street.

my girls--the constant baby girl, b.j. and i, now complete with the new addition 'hippie sarah with the tits'* are happily pickling our livers into oblivion.
a very tall and large black man in a very pimpish pimp suit walks up to the rail nearby.

pimp suit guy: where my niggas at?**

me: i'm right here.

pimp suit man: ***nearly pees his pants. only that wouldn't be a very pimp-like thing to do, so instead he says to his friend*** this little white girl just said she was my nigga. look how white she is!

***the pimp suit man then proceeded to hit on me, which i let him do for a few minutes because i felt bad for claiming to be his nigga.
then i ran away to do some more shots.***


*hippie sarah with the tits gave herself that nickname, so stop giving me that look.
**it should be noted that this man was most definitely not talking to me when he asked this question.

in which i tell you how stupid i am. again.

here i am in key west, my mostiest favoritest place on the planet.

i cannot provide you with humorous pictoral evidence of this fact.
because i forgot to bring that thinger that connects the camera to the computer.

oh, and we also forget the wireless card for the laptop, which means i am currently paying eleventy hundred dollars a minute to use this computer. and this place doesn't even serve alcohol.

damn, i love you people.
