Ten people I'd like to meet

So I was reading a blog I frequent every now and then and his entry for today was the top ten people he would like to meet. Since my brain is pretty fried right now I'll just tell you about one of my top ten today. Maybe after nursing school I'll tell you about the rest. ;)

Alton Brown. He is one of the most clever, fun, interesting, informative people to listen to. He is a culinary genius and just an all around smart guy. He's so fun to watch and you can find him on the Food Network. One of my favorite things about him is that he can make ANYTHING interesting. His show, Good Eats, on the Food Network delves into a specific food on each episode. Last week: water. Yes, water. He had an entire 30 minute show on water. I missed it, but it was only part 1 of a 2 part show. On water. So I'll watch the second part this Wednesday. It's gotta be good if it's 2 parts! :)

He's also got a new show coming out: Feasting on Asphalt. The name alone should tell you this guy is cool. He travels through 19 states dining at little eateries, talking to strangers, and enjoying the hospitality of the "little guy." Basically he vists towns in which a Wal-Mart would look out of place. Gotta love that!

Now, on to the sad thing about Alton Brown. He will be in D.C. on July 24 and his show...yea...it's friggin' SOLD OUT!!!! :( He'll be doing a book signing and an illustrated lecture about his travels recording Feasting on Asphalt. I had no idea he was going to be here and now that I know he will be, I can't get tickets! :( So, I'm thinking MAYBE the online tickts are sold out and I can go buy some at the door. ;) Or at least get a glimpse. I have a list. Of 100 things I want to do before I die. Meeting Alton Brown is on it and by golly that *will* be crossed off my list. Wish me luck!

Oh, and check out Alty (my nickname for him). ;) You won't regret it!



Ok, so it's been what...weeks since I last posted, right? Ugh. I've been soooo insanely busy! The homebuying process blows! There is so much paperwork and so much jargon and not enough time and too much money and not enough patience and on and on and on. I can't stand it! I just want it to be over and I want to be moved in. Really, at one point I was ready to just friggin' quit and stay in my tiny little apartment forever. I mean really, who cares? We don't pay for gas we don't pay for water or trash removal or anything. Just electric. I'm cool with that. It's better on my end. But then B won't have a yard to play in and we won't have anything to call our own and we won't have any walls to paint and let me tell you I am TIRED of white walls. Everything in my new place will be painted! Bright, colorful, cheery colors! Our living room will be red and the kitchen will be orange for starters. ;)

So enough of the house. Great news for my girl
Jaime Warren! I am so so so happy for you, sweetness!!! :) Congratulations a million times over! She hasn't been on 2peas lately and I miss her, but I just wanted to let her know how happy I was for her.

So nursing school starts in about a month and a half and I'm nervous. WAY nervous, actually. I have to have 200+ pages read by the first day of class and I'm already taking 2 classes right now. Thankfully I will have gone to part time by the time nursing school actually starts so that won't be too much of a concern, but I'm drained. I wish I could spend one day NOT doing homework. ;) But I know that won't happen until I've graduated, so for now I'm just going to study until I pass out. Heh. Wish me luck!
