But, this Snoopy one may be the new winner!

08.17.08 - The daliahs...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.

I love these flowers. Yet another of the hundred or so I took in San Francisco at the de Young and Legion of Honor. When I get a house, I am getting these flowers.

The weekend was pretty enjoyable. I had the best time in San Francisco with Paul going to the museums. It was also nice to get out of Sacramento since the stupid State Fair is going on till Labor Day.

I just wish I had more time to work on all those photos I took this weekend : )

08.16.08 - The museums...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.

I think I had a heart attack being in a huge room with 6 Rodin sculptures.

Being here reminded me of why I am going to school. Like a confirmation (affirmation, perhaps?) that I am where I want to be in life and also in the world.

I also got a taste of the other art in the world... Like the Native American/ Indian art and also the art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

I am who I want to be. The end.

08.15.08 - The office dogs...

Dog day at work...

I wish I had a dog to bring to work with me like Sara and Dr D does. One day... I am in no big hurry.

One of our patients brought in his little Yorkie puppy into the office. He is the sweetest little guy I have ever seen. Too small for me tho. Beagle is the perfect size!

08.13.08 - The movie...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
We saw Tropic Thunder... Oh my goodness; so fucking funny. By far much more funny then Pineapple Express.

08.12.08 - The bird feeder...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
Besides the fact that I look like a total retard, I want this bird feeder only because it has cherry blossoms on it and only for that reason. End of story.

08.10.08 - The artist (Beasley)...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
I swear, Paul's cat (well, he is mine too since I bought him for Paul 2 years ago) Beasley is the smartest cat in the world. He seems to understand the things that Paul and I do and say.

The other day, I was throwing away something and I looked at the bar (my dad made Paul and myself a bar to house all of our "adult beverages" and accessories) and Beasley was sitting there with all my paints and canvas'.

He is the sweetest thing in the world. I am so happy that Paul and Beasley's paths crossed when they did. That boy always knows how to cheer me up.

08.09.08 - The bear pimp...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
I think I got excited when I saw Poppy at the mall... Poppy is the mascot of the California State Fair (the fair is down the street from our apartment and I like to go at least once durring the 3 weeks its around but gets annoying not having a place to park)

Those little kids totally made me smile.

Oh yeah, we also saw Pineapple Express... Loved it!

08.08.08 - The Olympics...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
Yes, I attempted to watch the whole opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Beijing. It started at 730ish and I fell asleep somewhere in the middle of the presentation of the countries... Right before the USA came on. I woke up when the NBC reporter was interviewing Yao Ming.

The opening ceremonies were the most awesome thing ever! Last time I watched the Olympics was in 1996! GO USA!!!!

08.07.08 - The Arnold Palmer...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
One of Paul's favorite drinks... I think I actually got excited when I saw this at the market.

You would be surprised on how many people (mostly stupid girl waitresses at chain restaurants) don't know what that drink is.

08.06.08 - The 'Little Thoughts'...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
"Been thinking little thoughts
Keep on walking try to stand up
Pay attention to the details
We go slowly, slowly down"

-Bloc Party 'Little Thoughts'

So, I haven't had my period still. It's been bothering me for the last few days... I am usually a 'beginning of the month' girl... I finally realized this on the 6th that I still hadn't had my 3 weeks days of 'surfer duty'...

Trust me, I am not ready to have kids or thinking of having any. I am probably the last person who should be having kids at the moment. I e-mailed Paul about my realization and when I came home (after eating dinner and relaxing after another 'wonderful' day of work, I went to Walgreen's to get a pregnancy test, just to be sure.

The test turned out negative... But still no period...


08.05.08 - The road block...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
I had come back from lunch like usual around 1pm... I noticed a white van parked in my Doctors parking spot (apparently this same van has parked here before and also Sara's spot too from time to time) for the 20th-fucking-time... I called Dr D about it and gave him a heads up about the inconvenience and reported the incident to the building management...

Instead of parking in another spot temporarily, this is what happened...

I went to the corer store during work to get some cough drops for Dr D. I told him that I went downstairs to take a picture of the scene and he said that I am "gonna put this up on [my] website"

The cat is out of the bag!

08.04.08 - The homecoming...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
Paul came home from Las Vegas. He had fun... From what he told me. And I got a stuffed White Tiger from Sigfried and Roy's 'Secret Garden'

It's good to have my PapaBear home with me.

08.03.08 - The question...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.

Everyone, seriously, please get off my nuts about me not being married or engaged... or having kids yet.

I am 20fucking4 years old... I hate kids... I spend too much time playing on the PS3... I spend all my money on useless crap (like more video games)...

I love Paul with all my heart but WE are not ready for that right now.
(but don't think that the idea hasn't crossed my mind a few times)

08.02.08 - The damage...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
Hair check: Day 2

Not bad. Decided to keep it as is... More as an experiment, I suppose. I have always been the kind of girl to try different things when it comes to my hair... I can always re-dye it later if I wanted to.

Paul went to Las Vegas for his sisters 21st birthday. He will be back Monday night... I have to pick him up at the airport at 9ish at night.

Here is to another weekend alone!

08.01.08 - The generaion gap...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
Dear Lord,

Please tell me that this is NOT how the young kids in the world dress these days!? WTF! Seriously? This "Hannah Montana" bitch needs to go away fast! Another reason why I don't want kids!

Thank you,

Amanda Ramirez

07.31.08 - The hair color...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
I probably shouldn't dye my hair a light brown especially since I have dark brown, almost black, hair...

And I shouldn't do it at 1030pm...

And I probably shouldn't dye Paul's hair the same color as me too...

Pretty much, my hair looked like I had bleached it... Paul and I ended up going to Walgreen's at 1130pm to get a new box to fix the problem!

Lame. I totally suck sometimes...

07.30.08 - The construction...

Originally uploaded by Amanda.
The one thing I hate more in the world... Not being able to park in from of my home especially when there are no other places to park near my home (the place where I live sucks)!
