This weekend Mel, Jenne and I hopping the Taurarri and headed east to Columbus, OH for Aaron's incredible Hurricane Party. Due to hitting Indianapolis at rush hour, lots of construction and the Hell hole the US calls Indiana, we didn't make it to Aaron's until 9:30pm with a party start time of 10. We hurried and got into costume and started to stir things up. Unfortunately, my camera got misplaced at some point in the night, so for now, you will have to use Sanjida's pictures to tell you the story of the night...and she was only there for the first 1/3 of the party. The night ended with a 3:30am Taco Bell run.

Here are some quotes and thoughts from the weekend:

--"You have 15 seconds to finish your burrito and get out of here." "It's a chalupa, gosh."
--"Ariel is in the bathtub"
--"I just don't feel right."
--Tom Raper RVs
--"Welcome to Indiana, the Hell hole of America"
--"I think I just came across another red hair"
--"It's going to come out of the gap between the toilet and the toilet seat"
--"It knocks me on my ass, but I don't know what it will do to you"
--"Meow"homeless man to Jenne
--What would Jesus bomb?-a bumper sticker
--"Jesus wants you to drink more and to encourage hook ups"
--"Let's have a slumber party"
--"It was like WWF Smackdown"
--"Aaron, Nick just puked"
--"How did you fall?" "My thong got caught on the doorknob on the way in"
--"If you don't give me water now I'm gonna stick my head under the fountain and drink"
--"There were at least 5 straight guys there at some point"
--"Can you give me $4 to go to the Y?"
--"I just don't feel comfortable being at a porn store with Jesus"
--"She's got pussy control"
--"Hey little red riding hood, where's toto?"
--painted bridges
--"My feet are cold and they hurt"
--"We shoudl wait for them, they might get raped"
--Come on Sloopy, come on
--Jesus tried to instigate a storm surge
--"Cat 5, Cat 5"
--After accidently spraying 2 guys in the face with a carona, I yell "It's a hurricane!"
--"Delilah, that bitch won't give me her phone number"
--"Nice nut buffet"
--"I left my burrito in the car"
--"We hate you Aaron, we hate you"

more fabulous quotes to come later...

MILF Hunter

So sometimes I google my own name to see what comes up. Never before tonight had is come up that I am on milf hunter. So, thinking that this was random, I clicked on the link and was taken to a porn sight. I really hope I do not share my name with a porn star.

Up to this point, I was the only Stacey Lens on the planet.

Sick sick sick.

Phoenix...I'm coming to you???

My brother has informed me that LA cut Jared and he got picked up by the Phoenix Suns. Refer to last post if you are confused.

California, here I come!

I received this email from my brother a few weeks ago...looks like I will be moving to LA.

Taken from

LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers signed six free agents Saturday, including four with NBA experience: Jan Jagla, Amal McCaskill, Boniface NDong, Jared Reiner, Fred Vinson and Frank Williams.

Jagla averaged 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in Germany last season after three years at Penn State.
McCaskill has averaged 1.8 points and 1.9 rebounds in four seasons with Orlando, San Antonio, Atlanta and Philadelphia. He played in Lebanon last season.

NDong averaged 14.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocks in France last season. The 7-footer played for the Denver Nuggets' summer league team.

Reiner averaged 1.1 points and 2.0 rebounds in 19 games with the Chicago Bulls last season after signing as a free agent out of Iowa.

Vinson averaged 19.8 points, 1.0 rebounds and 2.4 steals in Venezuela last season. He has played in 13 NBA games over two seasons with Atlanta and Seattle.

Williams has averaged 2.9 points and 1.9 assists in his first three NBA seasons after being selected by Denver with the 25th selection in the 2002 draft. He also had stints with New York and Chicago, where he played last season.

--If you couldn't figure it out, I'm moving there with Jared. ;-)


I'm torn.

When I moved to Chicago, I decided that I would become a White Sox fan. While I have never been a big fan of the American League due to their employment of the DH, I knew I could NEVER be a Cubs fan. However, when the world series started this year, I thought I would be cheering for the Sox. Now that the series is in full swing, I am having difficulty cheering for the Sox. Yes, I am happy for them, but my heart belongs to the NL. I a Sox fan or am I cheering for the Astros...I'm still not sure.

I got Scuuurrrrred!

Yesterday I went to Fright Fest at Six Flags Great America with a co-worker and had so much fun. We went on the American Eagle(forwards and backwards), Raging Bull twice, the Viper twice, Batman, Superman, Iron wolf, and the Demon. While the weather was less than perfect(it was raining off and on and cold), we had a BLAST! We sat in the front car multiple times and got pelted in the face with rain. We made friends while waiting in line and even got to watch the world series game on the tv's while waiting in line. What more could I ask for??? We closed down the park and I didnt' get home until 1am. I am a little sore and exhausted, but it was all worth it.

One of the funnier points of the night was when we got off the Raging Bull after dark and were looking at the pictures they try to make you buy, my co-worker said "All you can see in the picture is your big white teeth because your mouth is open." HA HA HA I have glow int eh dark teeth, like the Friend's episode with Ross!

If you've never done fright fest you totally need to. The rides are way better after dark when you can't see anything in front of you. I can't wait until next year.

It's officially fall...and I'm drinking it down

So perhaps one of my all time favorite drinks is back in stores for a limitied time. It's hot carmel apple cider at Starbucks. If you've never had it, you need to. It's so good and it tastes like fall. I had my first one today when I stopped by the grocery store(it has a Starbucks in it). It was amazing. Infact, I'm sipping it while I blog.

Must get back to my fall love.

Back in the blogging world

I had a great trip to northwest Iowa. Lots of very humorous things happened that included my grandpa, grandma, and my uncle...and of course me. I really had a fabulous time. I enjoyed being able to hear sounds other than cars and being able to smell other things in the air besides pollution.

One of the funnier things that happened was when my grandpa and I went to visit my grandma in the nursing home. Here's the conversation that transpired:

Grandpa: "Shirley, what did you have for dinner?"
Grandma: "Salsbury steak"
Grandpa: "Raspberry cake?"
Grandma: "I said salsbury steak, Keith"
Grandpa:"Oh, Raspberry cake! That sounds good."

See ya later

There will probably not be any blog psoting until at least Tuesday. I am headed to northwest Iowa for a few days. Enjoy your weekend.

Ditto my last post

My oh my, what have I done? In the past two weeks, I have worked 48 hours of overtime. I am exhausted(as I blog on my work break)! Fortunately, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I work everyday until Thursday this week, then I am headed off in the Taurarri on Friday morning. I am headed for 4 days of rest and relaxation at the Domino Ranch. I can't wait to spend a few days on the farm and play in nature(I'm sure my allergies will love it too).

I've also been making plans on how to spend this newly aquired money. Some will be set aside for the fun weekend I have planned in late Nov when I head back to Iowa City for the Iowa vs Minn game. There is going out to the bars, tailgating, the football ticket and of course, we wouldn't stay anywhere less than the Sheraton.

I also looked into my next scedule and planned a trip to go visit my good friend in Madison, WI in mid Nov...right before her birthday. I owe her big time. I think she has made about 6 trips to Chicago and I have made a measly 1 to the mad-town.

I am also looking into visiting my dear friend Aaron in Columbus. I am way behind on visits to him as well.

Anyhow, must get back to my 12 hour shift.

Thank Goodness For Days Off

Yesterday was a GREAT day. I had the day off and did only what I wanted. It was great. I went over to the North/Clybourne area and did some shopping and also applied for jobs at Crate and Barrel, Crate and Barrel Outlet, and Cost Plus World Market. I got a very fun and funky necklace at World Market. After taking the L home, I hopped in the Taurarri and headed to the ghetto K Mart, Target, and then back to the K Mart.

And as always when I have downtime, I always tend to want to do something with my hair. Sometimes I cut it myself. Sometimes I dye it. Well, last night I dyed it to a more fall color. It is just a deeper shade of brown and so far I like it. I hope it lightens up a tad bit, but not too much. I do need a haircut, but I think I'll leave that one to the professionals this time.

Jenne says I need new "friends"

So there have been a lot of random things happening lately.

When Mel was visiting me last Oct/Nov, we went to Bar Louie and this guy was hitting on me named Roman. He tried to convince me that he was from the radio program of Styles and Roman. I however, did NOT fall for this and was very annoyed by him. Fortunately, Mel and I were able to escape him and his gross friend. A few weeks ago, I worked a day shift at work and we were watching the news and up popped Roman's picture! I was shocked and continues to watch to see what was going on. It turns out he was a witness in a hit and run where a woman got killed. It was pretty funny to know some one on the news though.

Last night Jenne and some of her friends/classmates went to Hawkeyes for a late afternoon cocktail. Before I arrived a fight broke out(I have never seen a fight at Hawkeyes before). The guy in the fight ran out of the restaurant and dove into the moonroof of a car and took off down the street. Later(after I had arrived), the moonroof diver came back to the restaurant to get his jacket that the had left. Jenne and I had recognized him as a regular there, but do not associate with him. Later that night, the owner asked us if we had seen Vito(the moonroof diver) earlier, because he had apparently left the bar and "fired off a round" and shot someone on Taylor St. Pretty sketchy if you ask me.

Jenne and I made a late night run to Wendy's tonight, because we were both hungry. I got a side salad and a small bowl of chili. After we got back I informed Jenne how sad I was that I don't currently have a crush on anyone. Aren't crushes great? You get to think up silly scenarios about the guy. It just sucks that I don't even have anyone to have a crush on. We tried to brainstorm people i knew that I would want to have a crush on, but alas, there was no one. So watch out, Chicago, I am on the prowl to have a crush.
