10:41 pm: I've Made the Switch

All right, boys and girls. I've made the switch.

For a couple months now, I've been contemplating a blog switch from LiveJournal.

LiveJournal: I'm sorry, it's not you - it's me.

Since being more active in the "blogosphere," I'm finding that Blogger is much more widely used in the blogging circles that I run in and frankly, has a lot more free junk (i.e. features). One thing that I wasn't really keen on with LiveJournal was that I never wanted to pay (and never did pay) for an upgraded account. So . . . I made the switch. Now comes several weeks of transferring all my old posts over!

06:41 pm: I want to get a pair of the Crocs "Prima" ballet flat:

I don't know if I want to drop the $30 on it though. So far, I only see that Bloomingdale's has it.

12:05 am: Greg and I watched so noTORIous on VH1 tonight. It was hilarious. You should watch too: http://tv.yahoo.com/feature/sonotorious.html.

Also: visit our website! Yay! http://www.karnos.us/
I'd invest more time/energy/creative mind juices into it if I weren't so busy being a TV couch potato. Greg says I need to be more active. Active schmactive. My thumb is plenty active all over the giant cable remote. Do you know how many channels I have to scroll through to get to VH1?! Like 50. And yet there will still be times when I find nothing to watch. You can never have enough.

One more thing: where are my RSVPs?! (Emily and Dora and Lee Anne and Melody and anyone else who should have and has not sent in their RSVP).

11:19 pm: Joy = new Chinese food place close to home that serves a variety of milk tea. I had some today and it was pretty good. Living out in Vail (which is like 20-30 minutes outside of Tucson), we don't have a lot of stuff. But I was quite delighted to discover that this place had a decent selection of milk teas/flavored teas/snow bubbles/other various delicious beverages. Double yay!

Also, Greg posted pictures of our trip to the Bay area: http://www.karnos.us/photos.htm

12:46 am: So I may have found a potential solution to my previous dress worries: Hollywood Fashion Tape! It's double sided tape that you use to keep clothes/dresses in place. Sounds good to me. They even have specially shaped pieces for strapless dresses. I need to make sure it doesn't hurt the dress though. Check out all the magazines it's been in! Even German InStyle! I'm sold.

08:53 pm: I got my dress today. They put these bra pad things in and now I wish they hadn't because I feel like the dress will fall off during the ceremony and/or reception. It sounded like a good idea at the time because they were like, then you won't need to wear a bra! But now it sits low across my chest and it won't stay up as much as I would like it to. :( :( :(

12:04 am: Greg's parents bought us a file cabinet for Christmas. In the process of filing away Greg's old school documents, I came across many delectable pieces and comments. For those of you who know Greg, and know him well, I think you will find the following representative (or in some cases, the complete opposite) of Greg's personality and attitudes to this day.

Kindergarten Report Card, Poly Drive School
Teacher comments:
"He is a very verbal student and enjoys a lot of loving attention. He is definitely a self-directed student and does not see the need to follow in everyone's footsteps."
"I will miss his antics and loving spirit."

Verbal and antics indeed. Oftentimes combined.

Second Grade Report Card, Poly Drive School
Teacher comments:
"He still enjoys minding other students' business more than working, and likes to add a sarcastic remark when he gets the chance."

Ha. Sarcasm in second grade. It came early. And hasn't stopped.

Action Plan from 5/6/93
Name: Greg Karnos
1. What was the problem?
"I threw butter at my sister."
2. What was my part in the problem?
"Katie got her sleeve in my butter. And wiped it off with my napkin. She threw the napkin in my food. I threw it back."
3. What can I do to change my behavior so that the problem doesn't occur again?
"don't let her take my napkin."

Bwahahahahaha. ::tear:: Part of what makes it so funny is that Greg's response to the 3rd question was meant to spit in the face of authority.

Kyrene de Las Lomas Action Form
1st Action (warning)
Student: Greg Karnos
Date: 4-5-95
Homeroom Teacher: Ippolito
Grade: 5
Reason: Smashed child's fingers with clipboard - then took Conflict Mgrs. shirt off and left his duty.

Greg was apparently signed up to be a mediator who patrolled the playground for conflicts. He also wore a special Conflict Managers shirt and carried a clipboard while he was on duty. Oh, the irony.

After elementary school, the "behavior problems" died down. The Action Plan is classic though. We both had a really good laugh over it. If you only got to know Greg recently (i.e. in college), it'd be hard to believe that he hasn't always been the stellar student he is now.

01:14 am: Dudes. I need suggestions for the menu at our reception in June. I'm adamant about it being buffet-style, because I think that just makes things easier and cheaper (and so will having disposable plates and silverware, as ghetto as it may seem). I think almost anything can be arranged, especially since we're getting most of our food through Greg's parents' restaurant. BUT . . . I doubt the cooks at Greg's parents' restaurant can make (good) Chinese food, so we may have to do some Chinese food catering. Anyway, so what should we have? What kind of hot food/appetizers/desserts/whatever? Greg and I were already entertaining thoughts of mini-chimis, mini quiches, and the like. But we need more ideas . . .
I took a job up in Phoenix starting in June. It'll be good actually earning a salary and having health/dental insurance. Greg and I will most likely sell our house down here after he finishes his Accounting Master's next December and then buy a house up in Phoenix. Preferably Ahwatukee. Or somewhere in the vicinity thereof.

We were actually browsing some houses listed for sale online in the Ahwatukee area and we totally found a house that was the same exact floor plan as my parents'. I was like, No way am I living in a house that is the exact same as the one I grew up in. Then it wouldn't feel like it was my house.

09:05 pm: So who wants to go shopping with me and Emily Thanksgiving weekend? (Girls only. Guys whine too much in clothes stores for girls. DON'T DENY IT, GREG). There may or may not be shopping the day after Thanksgiving and it may or may not start at 5:00 am.
