Lilith had a Dia de los Muertos concert for orchestra today. While I was waiting for the concert to start, I walked around the arts center to check out everything that was set up. 
The top left is a bride and groom set that I fell in love with. If I had $65 to spare, they would have come home with me! 
The top right is two ladies that were doing face painting. The lady on the left, her face and chest is all done in face paint! It was even more fantastic in person.
The bottom left is a skeleton that was set up at one of the vendor tables and the bottom right is a puppy that was at another table. 
Inside the orchestra hall, they had set up a Dia de los Muertos altar contest with the entries on display. They had a volunteer hovering in the room or I would have taken some pictures of them because they were absolutely beautiful. Third place was one dedicated to Steve Jobs and the decorations were almost entirely green apples! 
The concert was amazing and all of the kids did a good job. If you want to see footage from the concert, I will be posting it on my youtube page at http://youtube.com/user/sororravn

Halloween carnival at Lilith's school. As part of her duties for Student Government she had to work one of the booths as well. She choose to be one of the kids that got creamed at the whip cream fling.

And today the abcess has caused my face to swell. Looking into dental schools to have my teeth pulled and getting dentures. Tired of this shit. I am really terrified of going to the dentist. It took my wisdom teeth getting this bad before I finally had them pulled. As long as I can get an appointment, I am going to have to make Dylan come with me so I don't chicken out.

My tooth abcessed on me today. Off to the ER and they gave me scripts for clindamycin (antibiotics, since I am allergic to pennicillin) vicodin, and super motrin. Blah

I haz a major sad right now. Things are just not working out the way that they are supposed concerning my wedding dress. The original place I was going to get it from no longer offers it. My friend, Denise, was in talks with her aunt to make one very similar. I found the pattern I wanted and sent it, along with the picture of the original dress to her. I was simply waiting to hear back from her with an estimate. Turns out, she had a fucking heart attack! Now, I feel kinda bad because this is a dear friend's family. However, that being said, I am going to be very fucking selfish and be upset that she is no longer going to be able to work on my dress. I want to fucking cry. It would just be nice if one thing would turn out okay for this god-damned wedding!

Meet Audrina. I have started calling her Ms A since her momma calls Baduhenna Ms B. We went to Ms A and Jordon's (her brother) birthday party today. Ms A and Ms B are BBFF (Baby Best Friends Forever) They always have such fun when they get together. Helene is one of my very best friends and I love her to death. She is actually my new bridesmaid. We had such fun with this pinata. Both of the babies kept walking through the strings instead of pulling on them to try to make the candy come out >.<

Well, obviously I did not take this photo because it is a picture of a nanotube. However, this picture represents one of my interests and something that I am considering minoring in. As most of you know, my main interest and major is genetics. One of the things I want to do is get into stem cell research. I am also toying with the idea of genetic manipulation and a way to do that thru the use of nanobots; tiny, microscopic robots. Now scientists have discovered a way to power these nanobots through the use of carbon nanotubes. This will allow the bots to be powered using motors that are actually much more powerful than current motors. Anyways, this is fucking amazing and I am in awe of the advances that are currently being made in the field of nanotech. Here is the article: http://gizmodo.com/5850000/scientists-have-used-carbon-nanotubes-to-engineer-the-most-powerful-artificial-muscles-ever

Cheat cuz I was tired yesterday. I spent the day at Mom and Grandpa's cleaning since it has not been done since before Grandma passed away in June. Lots of dust everywhere but we got it done and got the living room re-arranged. 
Webster actually requested to sit in my lap today. This is a rarity. I gotta admit tho, since he has been given the freedom to go outside as he pleases, thanks to the kitty door in the back, he is a MUCH more loving kitty.

I have been in wedding planning mode the last couple of days. I was posting links to dresses and shoes to facebook. These are the bridesmaids dresses and shoes. My youngest sister WAS going to be one of my bridesmaids. Now, I am an open minded person and could really care less about what you look like, who you sleep with, or who you worship. As long as you treat me well and with respect, I will offer the same to you. However, there is one piercing that I absolutely fucking hate and that is the septum piercing. The one that is not on the nostril but hangs down from the middle of the nose. My sister has this piercing. As she was supposed to be one of the bridesmaids, I asked her to hide that ONE piercing for the length of the ceremony as well as for the pictures. She bitched about that and claims that I am making her hide who she really is! Honestly?? I am NOT asking her to hide the stupid fucking "hatchetman" tattoo on her leg, I am NOT requiring her hair be styled a specific way, I am NOT saying that her hair has to be a natural color, I am NOT saying that she has to remove any other piercings! I am asking her to shove ONE fucking piercing inside her fucking nose during the wedding! She does not even have to take the stupid thing out, just hide it! She then decided to bitch about the dress that I picked out for the bridesmaids and MOH as well as the shoes! Honestly, it is MY fucking wedding! I don't think that I am being terribly fucking bridezilla here for asking her to hide it for me! I feel like all I am asking her to do is show up, be happy for me, wear a dress and shoes, and hide her nose piercing. Do you ladies think that I am asking too much? /rant

So, I asked my girlfriend Helene to take her place and she accepted! Yay!

Got my Halloween decorating started. I sent this to my mother and mother in law with the message that if they called before coming over, next time I will leave the door open for them. Lol

Ok ladies, a poll. 
I have a photo shoot that I am doing soon and need some help. I have a friend who is going to ink the phrase "Talk nerdy to me" somewhere on me. 
I have not decided where to have it yet but I need help determining the style that I want it in first. In this picture, I have my top 4 choices. Now, keep in mind that each of these will be fully colored in when done. What would you pick or which one is your favorite? 
Thanks!

You know, I really do like my van. At 31 years old, it is the first car that I bought, with MY money, that is in my name. Right now, she is pissing me off. I cannot the AC right now because it causes the mother fucker to overheat. I have had the cooling system practically replaced, the thermostat replaced and the bitch is still fucking up. Mechanic thinks it is the compressor this time since it only does it when I run the AC. I live in Arizona! Temps are still reaching triple digits! Fortunately, mornings are ok, afternoons, this is just going to suck ass.
