2008 has been a pretty eventful year for a lot of reasons. One reason 2008 has been cool is the number of things in my life that have been upgraded from okay things to way better things. To illustrate what I mean, I will show you some of my favorite upgrades.
My old brush. Do you like how it's completely split open and a bunch of the plastic brush parts are missing? Yeah. The new one is not only intact but also has this crazy gel handle that is all squishy and cool. It's so cool that hair kind of sticks to it a little bit but we're coping.

Speaking of hair, it's been just over two years since I whacked my hair off (temporary insanity?). There were a few cuts in between then and now, just to avoid the mullet look, but now I can say that I'm never going short again. Check out this upgrade:
I still have that ponytail of hair in my bathroom drawer back home. I always said I would keep it until I had that much hair on my head again and--hallejuah!--it's about to that point. Next!
I rode that bus pretty much everyday the last school year. It was okay, but I'm happy to not do that anymore ever again. Plus now I get to do fun stuff like pay for gas. Just kidding, little Leeloo car, I don't mind.
I don't have before and after pictures of my legs. You will all just have to believe me when I say my legs look way better than they did a few months ago when I didn't run regularly.

This is my favorite one. Well. Maybe after my hair...

Next on my list: bagels and cream cheese to replace my toast and jam.


  1. Nice upgrades.
    You hair looks beautiful. My hair is not quite that long, and it's been over a year now. I think it was more than temporary insanity - I think it was masochistic (for me, anyway).
    Good for you for running; I will try to muster up some spirit of inspiration to exercise as well...

  2. Holy moly, that is one huge ice cream cone!

    .... :)

  3. Control, you are an inspiration to us all on so many levels!

  4. I'm a little miffed that you didn't include you apartment upgrade. Come on!!!!

    I like all your upgrades too :).

  5. Your hair looks gorgeous! I can't wait to play with it when I see you. :D I love how you covered up your face with the camera. haha!

    You named your car Leeloo! Yay for 5th Element.

    That is so great that you have been running. More power to ya!

    Yes, I definitely think your new bf is an upgrade. ;) hehehe...

  6. I'm not stalking, I'm just skimming through your posts, and don't worry that I have the SAME very same squishy handle brush. But it's missing. Sad news.
