He did the research

After hearing a news story of using ecstacy on terminally ill cancer patients in a clinical trail, Twotermslater did the research. Read his post and comment, because this is some interesting stuff!

No new posts

Hey everyone. I am going to be heading to Burlington for Christmas for a few days. I will probably just be hanging with the fam and not blogging, so try not to cry when I don't have any new posts for a few days. I'll be back in action on the 21st.

The night was looking slow, until Mr. Sheen came over.

We hung out with Charlie Sheen. Jenne and I now have one in the books together. It was another adventuresome night. Ed took us into the men's restroom and let us choose where our picture would go up. I ate at the taco stand for the first time. We ran home from the taco stand. How all good nights end...with running.

Love, life, and self esteem

Some people say that you can't help who you like.

Why do people like who they like?. I am often attracted to people that intrigue me. In other words...I like a little mystery, a little challenge. Often the men I like are a bit quirky. And usually a bit rebellious. Due to some unfortunate wiring problem in my brain, I always go for guys that are badasses. Which is highly interesting, because I am quite straight laced. We all know that I like to have a good time, but I do not participate in illegal substances. Why is it that I like these men, with whom my morals do not agree?

Tonight, a friend brought up an interesting point:
Do I not believe that a good guy could actually like me?
This led me to think...where is my self esteem? Am I attracted to these men, simply because they were attracted to me? Or do I just want to figure them out; do I like the adventure, the rush?
As usual, I rebutted with "Name 3 good guys that have liked me."

Well, the list stopped at one name.
Do I like bad men as a product of psychological conditioning?
Well, as you can see, this is a continuously unresolved issue in my life.
My head and heart can never seem to speak the same language.

Unedited Pics

Unfortunately, I can not post all my pictures on my blog, so I have set up a yahoo photos page to allow people to see all the fun I have.
Check it out if you dare!

Stacey's Photo Page

Name dropping (better than log dropping)

My good friend Aaron finally decided that my blog was cool enough to get a mention on his blog, so I thought I'd be nice and drop his name on mine. Two Terms Later is a blog that revolves around politics, ethics, and medicine..with some humor mixed in. Mine is far from that, as you can see..Girls, they wanna have fun. So, check out Aaron's blog. And Aaron--I'll work on the naked pictures. BOL

Tap it, Jenne, tap it

This would be how the night ended. Megan was asleep on Charlies couch, Charlie was playing the guitar, and Jenne and I were playing the drums. Let's just say...the night was interesting.

Great River Basin (recreated)

This would be how the night started. Jenne peed at the L stop on the way to the bars. Kinda reminds you of the great river basin, doesn't it?

Michael's in the house!

I'm not going to lie...Jenne looks a little bit like she's Michael Jackson in this man's hat. He refused to take a picture for us, because he was too busy eatting his wings...but when he was done, he shared his hat. Sweet leather hat.

Who shrunk Santa?

LOOK! It's a chubby munchkin Santa inside the wreath at Hawkeyes.

Girls night out

Ch-Ch-Charlie and Drew (nice sport coats!)

This is Charlie and Drew. Drew was in town for a wedding, but Charlie is definitely our new Chicago friend. In this picture I think they were either singing or pretending to be tigers. Gotta love them either way!

Ravioli-free weeks...ahhh, those were the weeks.

Today I had Spaghettios for lunch. They were delisicious. They reminded me of ravioli days at camp. Don't we all miss those??? Ummm, no!

I am one with nature

I was in charge of the nature reserve in our Chistmas village this year. This is about 1/4 of our whole village that is slowly overtaking our house.

Lens to the 4th power

I made the fam take a pic together on my mom's birthday. Aren't we such a cute family?

Wouldn't you feel dirty?

In Texas, a man was arrested for practicing medicine without a liscense. He pretended to be a gynecologist. What a low down shady man!

Big Ten Co-Champs

I am really going to miss "The Asassin" next season.
Wish I could have been in IC to celebrate that win!
On Iowa, Go Hawks!


Is that a pony keg in Mel's hand?

This picture of Mel accurately depicts how our weekend went.

And so went my weekend...

As you all know, random and wild things always seem to happen whenever Mel and I are within a one mile radius of each other. Well, she came to stay with me in Chicago this weekend.

Friday night, we met a group of interesting men and got home at 5am, but not before going out to breakfast with them.

Saturday afternoon involved Floor Fest 2004. The burrito was transported to my living room floor, where we vegged and watch the Hawk beat Wisconsin (30-7).

Saturday night, it started all over again. You know, go to the bar, meet some guys...get my shoe tried by a random guy. Ahhh...

Why does this always happen to me?

Tonight I got floated to the adult ward.

*told me he loved me

*sang to me

To my ladies...we need to bring back the Stella award.

Back in the Game

Sorry for all of you looking for a newly posted post, I was out of town. I headed way across the state of Iowa to visit my grandparents. Then, I drove back across the state to hang out in Iowa City for the night. While there, I rocked the town. I met E's new bf and think he is fabulous. I had a great trip...but now...it's 6 days of work before Mel comes this weekend. Watch out Chicago!

Who(or shoudl I say what) doesn't want to be a woman these days?

Recent studies have shown that male fish are becoming female due to the estrogen and pollutents in the water. This is the same water that we drink...could it lead to women taking over the world...hmmmm...


Shout out to E Frank who informed me of this phenomenon last year, waaaay before Tom Brokaw reported on it.

Clarett accuses OSU

Are the accuisations true??? Bogus summer jobs? Passing grades?
You tell me.


Can someone please tell Trussell to get a new look?

Cutting in line for organ transplants


Green Bean Cassarole...in a bottle!

A company has taken soda flavors to a new extreme. Since I am working ALL the holidays at the hospital this year, I may just to have to go on a hunt for these products so that I can taste the same traditional flavors. It's like being with your relatives without all the noise of the children running around.

Mashed potatoes and gravey, anyone?

So, incase you hadn't heard, Michael Phelps for arrested for DUI. Here's part of the article:

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) -- Six-time Olympic champion Michael Phelps was arrested last week and charged with drunken driving.

A trooper saw the 19-year-old swimming sensation go through a stop sign Thursday night, state police said Monday. The trooper saw signs of intoxication and arrested Phelps for driving under the influence, police said.

Phelps also was charged with violation of a license restriction and failure to obey a stop sign. The legal drinking age in Maryland is 21.
"I made a mistake." Phelps told Sports Illustrated's Rick Reilly by phone. "I know it's wrong to get into a car when you've had anything to drink. I'm 19 years old and I made a big mistake. I was taught to take responsibility for your actions so that's why I'm calling."

So, what do we learn form this? Michael Phelps is also dumb. Perhaps too much chlorine to his brain. The only thing that he sees that he did wrong was get in the car. Other things I picked up from the article:
*he was drinking underage
*he already had a liscence restriction
*not only did he get in the car, but he drove it.

Way to go Mikey!

Who needs weight watchers?

A timeless classic

After almost a full two weeks without a new post, I have returned with a special treat for all of you. As many of you know, I get very excited when I see a mullet. This website has recently been introduced to me and I feel that everyone should be able to enjoy it as much as I do. Click to find a great mullet. I recommend using one of the pictures as the background for your computer.

Political Bashing

For some great non-partisan fun, go to www.jibjab.com and watch the videos. If you don't almost pee your pants, something is seriously wrong with you. I personally prefer This Land is Your Land.

Bad News Birds

Could the Cardinals be any more frustrating? They started the series up2-0 now, they are down 3-2. Seriousl, they may not even deserve to win after blowing a series lead like that! UGH! I think I am feeling the pain that the Cubs fans endure year after year. I want to poke everyone on the team repetitively in the eye!

A pickle with toothpicks???

You are a pickle with toothpics in it. But you
knew that already. Are you sour inside? Has
someone done something to you? Maybe to move
on, you need to take those toothpics out
yourself. Or maybe, they're protecting you
from getting hurt again. Or both. Choose
wisely. Think twice the next time you eat a

The Whats In Your Kitchen Personality Test

I think I am definitely a combination of the onion in a cup and the scoop of coffee with a crayon in it. I am NOT a pickle with toothpicks in it!

MAN BAG...it's not a purse!

Aaron was visiting Chicago this weekend and we went shopping with Courtney and Tilly on Michigan Ave. When we went into Coach, I joked with Aaron that he should get a man bag. The salesman overheard me and quickly ushered us over to the man bag section of the store. There, about 5 other sales clerks proceeded to attack us and inquire if Aaron was getting a man bag. I thought it was really funny, but I think Aaron wanted to kill me. For all the men out there, here is a good story on man bags...check it out!


Jesse's Girl

When I went to visit Mel in Madison, we met 5 very interesting guys. This guy's name was Jesse and Mel was definitely his girl. Much fun was had by all. I found a note in my purse the next day that Mel had written while we were on the Terrace the night before, it read, "Jesus is my best friend." She had seen it on a bumper sticker and wanted to share it, so I will also share it with you.

Chili Tragedy

Tonight I was craving Wendy's chili...so I went to the Wendy's website, to find the nearest Wendy's. I was excited to see that there was one fairly near my place. Unfortunately, I got there and that location had been closed...LIKE SHUT DOWN CLOSED. So I went to the one downtown. They were out of chili. I was SOOO PISSED OFF! So, go to the website and call to see if they are our of chili before driving around for an hour. Let's just say Iowa City Wendy's was NEVER out of chili.

One day a first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!"

The teacher paused then asked the class,
"And what do you think that farmer said?"

One little boy raised his hand and said,
"I think he said: 'Holy Shit! A talking chicken!'"

Does anyone else think this little boy might have been Aaron? It sounds like an Aaron response to me!

So, I unfortunatly can not go to the Cardinals NLDS games. However, my brother asked me to try and get tickets for him, because he had class(like you really need to go to class in law school ;-)). So, he called me a 7:30am this morning to make sure that I was up and ready to call and be on the internet at the same time (tickets didn't go on sale until 8am). So, after more than 3 hours of continuous trying, I had to take a break to shower and get ready. At 11:40 I started trying again. I finally got through at 12:59pm. Josh and Jill (his gf) now have a pair of tickets to game 2 of the NLDS. GO CARDS!
