Mt. Redoubt, blow your damn top already! It will be good times all around, so get on with it. But be warned, you scratch my car with your ash, or force me to wear one of those hideous face masks, and I will take you down my friend!!

Carrie Bradshaw loves her Manolos, I love my handbags. We are pretty much the same person, just saying. I am obsessed with handbags, it's no secret. I don't even know how many I have, but there are rubermaid tubs full of them, so... I do not feel like I had a successful shopping trip unless I bought at least one handbag. Well, I am ready to admit, that things have gotten out of control. Phew, now that I got that off my chest, I am going shopping...

No really, this is serious business. I looooove handbags so much! I just don't really have room for them all. It is a very, very tough task going through them by myself because I know how much I spent on them and I love them all, so I don't want to get rid of them. So, my mom and Kim have decided that they need to help me with the process. Wait, is this some sort of intervention? Who am I kidding? I need it!

I started to read the book, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Needless to say, I am a shopaholic, but I did not need the book to tell me that. But, it is time to put the MasterCards down. Did I just say that? Ugh, this is going to be harder than I thought! But, I know I can work on it. It is going to be difficult and I am going to have to take baby steps, but I think I can do it. I am not giving up on shopping. That is a joke and a half, who do you think I am, people? I am simply taking it down a notch, a manageable notch. I will keep you posted on my progress. I am getting scared just thinking about it!

Are You Lying to Me?

The other night, I was in the kitchen showing Hillary our ridiculous alley pics on Facebook when this conversation struck up with my 6 year old niece, Lucy, from the stairs. Lucy wanted Hillary to come upstairs because she could not get to sleep:

Lucy: "Mom, can you come up here?"
Hillary: "Yes, in 3 minutes."
Lucy: "Do you promise?"
Hillary: "Yes."
Lucy: "Are you telling the truth?"
Hillary: "Lucy, when I promise that means I am telling the truth."
Lucy: "Okay, I will count to 60, 3 times"

At this point, I was dying laughing as quietly as possible, of course. Oh kids, they are ridiculously awesome!

Karate Was Her Name.

Amy, Lorna and I - Self pics at Beerfest!

Saturday, my buddy (and fellow member of the Crewnit), David, turned the big 2-5!! How did we celebrate? With beer, alley romps, karate, and dance marathons, of course. David, Jason, Amy, Lorna, Jon and I went to the Beer and Barley Wine Festival and, as usual, had a fantastic time! We ran into old friends and of course, I fell in love with the Full Sail rep, no biggie. After Beerfest it was just the Trio (Jason, David, and I), dominating Anchorage, and making people jealous, like we always do.

Graffiti? Let's take ridiculous pictures!

Apparently, we love graffiti and alleys in Anchorage. There was noooo way we were going to walk to Bernies Bungalo (one of my favorite bars downtown) from Sub-Zero (my favorite martini bar downtown) without traveling through our "favorite alley". This alley has served for much hilarity over the past year and a half, mainly due to the fact that we always have to do something ridiculous while in it. Saturday night was no different. Jason was super stoked about the alley, but he didn't know what to do with himself. Until he saw the graffiti. It was on. Of course we could not leave without taking a series of ridiculous pictures with it. How can anyone pass up the opportunity to take awesome pics with graffiti in an alley? It is not possible. Naturally, David and Jason wanted to do karate kicks and jumps down the alley making themselves look tough or something. I think they mainly just wanted awesome pics to laugh at the next day. Mission accomplished.

Free Tommy Bahama shirts? Yahtzee!!

After several karate kicks and ridiculous pictures, we made it to Bernies. This is probably me favorite bar downtown. I LOVE it! They have a huge patio which is always packed in the summer, with awesome furniture, kick ass upstairs bar and bangin' djs. Seriously, the last time I was there, the DJ was reading my mind, no joke. He was dropping the best old school jams and I was belting out every word, I was even surprising myself a lil bit. I was so in love, I had to let them know. I caught them watching me jam to all of their beats a couple times and we did the whole nod and point at eachother across the dance floor while thinking "These beats are killer and we are totally reading eachothers minds right now" look, so when I told them how in love with them I was, it was definitely reciprocated. That is always fun. I will never forget that night. Best DJs on the planet! This Saturday was just as awesome, minus the DJ. We were pretty much the only people upstairs, so we sat at the bar and met our AMAZING bartender who gave us tons of loot! Tommy Bahama shirts for the boys, hats, beanies, flashing bike lights, haha. David and Ja immediately put their new shirts on and did not take them off the rest of the evening. The boys went on a mission and left me at the bar with the bartender. I want her to be my best friend, she was so spectacular. And, her name is Karate, um, hello new friend! That is not her real name, but she said that is what everyone calls her because her real name is super difficult. It was like Karatona or something like that, but I like Karate. The drinks, food, loot, and company were great at Bernies and reminded my once again why I love it so much!

On to the Avenue. It was the most packed I have ever seen it, total crazytown. Jason and I were wearing our flashing bike lights, just in case we lost eachother. Ja and I ended up leaving way earlier than David, only to be awoken by him getting home 4 hours later and telling us ridiculous stories that definitely could have waited until our Snow City pow wow the next morning. I can't get those 20 minutes back, no I cannot. Oh man, what a night. Anchorage, you got owned!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is coming out in May and look at Hugh Jackman's biceps, 'nuff Said. I looooove X-Men and obviously Hugh as Wolverine, so I am pretty amped about this film!

Thanks, Alaska!

Alaska, you have the most unpredictable, fickle weather on the planet. When I am not freezing my booty off, I am falling on it because you decide it is a good idea to rain and make every inch of the ground an ice rink. Bitch please!! At least we can all still wear our beach attire since it is a sweltering 40 degrees now, am I right?

Would You Come To Oviedo with Me? Done.

Juan Antonio=hot

In true Anchorage fashion, the Woody Allen film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona was only in theaters for a week. My being constantly slow on the movie uptake, missed it of course. I finally got to watch it last week and can't stop thinking about it. All I can say is, I am in love, with Juan Antonio. This is not a joke.This film was beautifully shot and made me want to go to Spain immediately, if only to find myself a Juan Antonio.

I am obsessed with Woody Allen movies. He is a genius. I think you either hate or love his movies, I definitely LOVE them. The cast consists of Penelope Cruz, ScarJo, and the amazing Javier Bardem. I have been in love with ScarJo (Scarlett Johansson) for quite sometime. Mainly since Lost in Translation, which is one of my favorite movies. She is fantastic. And, she is married to Van Wilder, bonus!! I was never a huge fan of Penelope Cruz. I think her hotness was really overwhelming and honestly, kind of annoying. I never really appreciated her until I saw her with Ben Kinsley in Elegy. Sidenote:I have a big, yet strange, crush on Ben Kinsley. She was fantastic, the movie was fantastic, and I am surprised it was not nominated. ScarJo and Penelope were perfect for this this crazy "love story". ScarJo is magical in Woody Allen films (rent Scoop, it's awesome!!) and I have now come to realize that Penelope can deliver on screen in pretty much any genre. Penelope, I forgive you for dating Tom Cruise, at least you are with Javier now...

Oh Javier Bardem, what to say. Oh lordy. If Woody Allen's sole purpose was to make me and every other woman fall in love with his character, Juan Antonio, he succeeded. Juan Antonio (I better find me a man named Juan Antonio or I will be sorely disappointed in life) is the one man on the planet who has the ability to get any woman to fall in love (or bed) with him just by saying hello, or just looking at them. I have fallen head over heals. His accent is ridiculously hot, his adorable artist outfits are too cute to handle and his "loving" nature is quite entertaining. Strangely, I do not really find him attractive outside of this movie, and he is probably a real d-bag. This movie was fantastic and I will definitely be watching it over and over again.

Also, congrats to the movie! It won Best Picture, Comedy or Musical, at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. I was pleasantly surprised! This was definitely one of my favorite movies of 2008, as well as Slumdog Millionaire, which I will discuss in another post.

Well, I must be going, Juan Antonio and Barcelona are waiting.

Are There Aliens In Your Phone?

Jason, talking to aliens. No big deal.

I am convinced there are aliens living in Jason's cell phone that only seem to speak when I am talking to him. How do I know what aliens sound like? Um, who doesn't? That is the real question here. Ok, ok, I understand that I have the weirdest ideas going on in my head, but it makes perfect sense to me. Pretty much every time we talk on on the phone, I hear the aliens. I think Jason has caught on to what they sound like now too, or maybe he just plays along with my ridiculousness to make me fell better. The other night they must have been having a huge pow wow in his phone because I could barely hear Jason over them. I almost had to hang up the phone because 1-they were being really loud, 2-I was getting a little freaked out and 3-I was real confused how they could all fit in there, have you seen the size of their heads?! Last week I called David and heard something resembling alien speak. Me: "Are there aliens in your phone, too?" David: "What? Aliens?". Then I heard Jason in the background, "Is that Hannah?". What, you are going to tell me that I am your only friend who believes there are aliens living in your phone, uh huh, right. Man, they know me too well!

So, Jason just informed me, as I was writing this, that he got a new cell phone. Damn him! How am I going to get my alien speak fix now? If only I could get an alien and Sassy in the same place, that would be glorious.

Hellooooo 2009!

Peter and I!

I realize I am a little late on this, but it's a new year, and I do what I want, when I want. Yeah, that just happened. I do not believe in New Years Resolutions. So, all I can say is 2008 was extremely fantastic and I am looking forward to the changes and excitement that 2009 will bring.

My friend Rebekah was visiting from California over the holidays and was thankfully able to spend alot of time with the Crewnit. We had a New Years Eve party at Colver and Lorna's and it was crazytown, as usual. The night included ridiculous games of Land Mines, Flip Cup and Beer Pong. But, of course, the night would not be complete without a Crewnit bed dog pile, Jason and I eating pretty much all of Colver and Lorna's food, creepsters (you know who I am talking about), and tons of laughing. Apparently we were all in love with pickles that night, because we devoured them from their fridge and managed to capture some ridiculously funny pickle self-pics. The Crewnit blows my mind with awesomeness.

Flip Cup Champs!! This was our version of the "high-five". We were trying to be original.

Of course, there was the usual self-pic marathon. If there is anything the Crewnit dominates at, it is self-pics. If you try to grab the camera from us while taking a self-pic, as to "help get a better shot", you better watch yourself. You are not "helping us" you are creating a less fun picture. We mean business. Self-pics are so much more enjoyable and often include a better story.

Bekah, Lorna, Jason and I. Self-pic!! Notice Jason, talking to Aliens.

New Years Eve was fantastic and I am glad I partied in 2009 with my amazingly spectacular friends! So, here's to 2009, the year that will change my life as I know it. Enjoy the Pics!

Team Sassy.

So, my Christmas present from Hillary was apparently stuck in Washington for like a week (stupid snow storms), but I finally got it a couple days ago. It was well worth the wait! I am soooo the President of Team Sasquatch. I am so pumped about this shirt, thanks Hill!!
