i'm a spacey idiot

today i'm feeling like a very incompetent human. bleh. usually i feel like i've kind of got it together--turns out staying in a different house for a week turns me into a nutcase, maybe it's taking care of a dog... cause i don't know how to do that. how do you do that?

i'm really considering following my dream of working in a factory line sometime soon. seriously, imagine the dad in charlie and the chocolate factory, screwing on toothpaste lids, perfect job! i wouldn't have to talk to anyone--and honestly it just seems like such a fun time. i think i'll post this entire paragraph into a job search engine.

i just pressed in a fax number and pressed send with no document loaded. i'm telling you... incompetent idiot.

are there any expo's coming up? freak.

i'm counting down the days until i no longer have to say "____ incorporated this is Ali." it's fifteen... if you're counting--like me. best thing i have ever said.

k well i'm probably gonna go and keep screwing everything up all over the place some more. it's the motif of the day, i suppose you could say. rhyme?

one year ago today...

 was one of the best days in my twenty-two years of existence. warner left on his mission on march 12th 2008, and returned march 17th 2010. for those of you that haven't counted he missed three of my birthdays.
but all of it was made up for when he came home. that day was probably the worst/best day ever. i had no idea when i would be able to see warner cause i was anti going to the airport and being the most awkward human in front of everyone just shaking his hand and stuff. luckily melissa and anna relieved some stress by taking me to the chickenfila--then again that was also pretty stressful cause we saw one of warners mission friends at the mall shopping (they came home on the same flight) and i about had a heart attack knowing warner was somewhere in provo. i got my hair done (of course i couldn't let myself do my hair wrong on a day like that), then the sitting began. i went home and sat... and sat, tried to read--didn't work, sat some more. who would have thought getting work off on that day would have been the worst decision ever. finally i got a text from his family saying he couldn't get released till later. LATER? i was freaking out but trying to contain myself in a ladylike manner. i think i passed out a few times before i got a call after ten from warner. we were going to meet up. of course when i got there he wasn't there, and he had no cell phone, so i had no way of contacting him. pretty sure i got out of my car and walked around the parking lot like a loon, then i turned around and he was right there (he definitely had been on the other side of the park). it was pretty unexplainable after that, we hugged, we laughed, we freaked out, we talked till way later than a missionary is used to, and were just the most happy humans. thanks for making me that happy every day since then warner, happy one year!

the tube

so for the last little while i have been wandering around in the abyss of television. all the shows i regularly follow (meaning the next day online) are on breaks. why do tv shows think they can have a spring break? it's rude really. this means, no new greys, no new gossip girl, no new vamp diaries, and to top it all off the season finale of the bachelor was on monday. by the way i'm still swimming in all the hilarity that is that show, i just love it. i promise i really don't watch tv that much--anymore... but i need something to unwind to. ya know, like just go home and turn on the tv, even if you don't watch it.
so until i find something new to watch i guess i'll just have to stick to watching greys over again. i'm not complaining, but warner is.

well i just spent two hours looking at designer fabric online. looks like i'll need a sewing machine. yep.
and i seriously want to make those cupcakes and wear those dresses so bad. come spring come!!

has anyone else noticed that arby's is still way good? i have. what about the fact that conan o'brien is hilarious. the other day he said "You know that button in the elevator with a fireman’s hat on it? Turns out that’s NOT the button you push to order a fireman’s hat." thank you twitter. warner showed me apple limeades at sonic, and now i can't stop. anna bring me a fuji apple.

i am DYING over this.
Nickell Photography
could she be more precious? just loving this. cutest baby nora.

ALSO. i hate utah, i have never hated it more than when it made me get stuck in Santaquin because it decided to snow. there were at least ten moments when i thought warner and i were going to die, or at leat be seriously injured--because of tiny white snowflakes. is there a worse fear? seriously, a tiny piece of frozen water made me scared for my life? i consider that torture.
