Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Book

So, I love Martha Stewart. I mean any chick that can stand her own in jail and come out and make a badass brownie is a winner in my book. Well I have all of her books and next Tuesday her newest book is available. Cupcakes equal L-O-V-E for me, so to find out Martha is doing a book dedicated to nothing but Cupcakes, is INSANE!!
The book looks like it’s going to be on the same lines as her cookie book, which was also awesome.

Since Monday I've been receiving an email for the "Cupcake of the Day" from her website. If your into baking, cupcakes or just want to drool a bit, check her website.

Weekend Recap....

This was such a laid back weekend. It started with my excitiment to find in my email a 40% off coupon from Borders. So, on Saturday the BF and I went to the bookstore, so I could get lost amongst the books. I love books, but they are so darn expensive so this coupon was just what I needed. My final purchases included:


We also went and saw Dance Flick (yes, I know and I have learned my lesson) and I got so frustrated with this chick in the movie. I was already mad that I paid $8.50 to sit through this horrible movie, but then this hoochie starts to pop her gum while the movie is playing. I mean she was being blatantly obnoxious, so I felt it was my duty to scream across the theater and tell her to stop it…(What I really wanted to do was jump across the seat and smack the back of her head, so her gum would pop out and stick it in her hair….but I thought that wouldn’t be very Lady-Like). I swear Austin, has made me so Ghetto…LOL!!

So, after that incident I felt it was a good idea that I lock myself in my apartment and not come out until Tuesday for work. So, with a big bowl of popcorn and my Tivo I stayed in. I did watch some good shows that I had been putting off….a recap:

The Real Housewives of NJ:

After watching two episodes all I could think of was an Adult version of Mean Girls. There is so much cattiness between the women it's crazy. I loves it!!

Charm School with Riki Lake

These Bitches are crazy within the first 15 minutes there was tons of tequila drinking and girl fighting…it was a pure vision of quality entertainment at its finest.

And to end my wonderful weekend I had one of my favorite local foods:

Bisteak Tacos with cilantro, onions and queso fresco...I'm drooling just think about them!

It was a pretty good Memorial Day! How was yours?

Party Like its 1999!!

So, I got an email today in regards to my 10-year high school reunion. After having a nervous breakdown at the thought of being out of high school for 10 years, I started thinking. I have no desire to attend this Hot Mess!!! I mean I didn’t want to be around most of those people 10 years ago, what makes them think I want to “party it up like its 1999” with them now! Plus 99% of the people I graduated with still live in our small town, which doesn’t say too much for a town known for its cows and Meth Labs!!

So, What was Miss Kitty doing 10 years ago as a senior in High School:

1. Being accepted to St. Louis University (Go Billikens!!)

2. Dating the guy, who 4 years later I would Marry and 5 years later would Divorce

3. Driving a Candy Apple Red Chevy Cavalier

4. Weighing about 40lbs less…LOL!!

5. Lusting over Gavin Rossdale circa Bush

6. Jamming to the Cranberries

7. Being best friends with the future Mrs. Banks (whom I’ve known since 2nd grade, and is still my bestie today!!)

*Note this picture is from 7th grade and
yes those are Starter jackets!!

8. Sporting the Brandy micro braids

9. Getting my first tattoo

10. Praying that I would be a fabulous kick- ass person in 10 years…(Yes, Dreams do come true..LOL)

Looking back at 10 years ago, I can’t say I would change the path my life has taken. Those adventures, trials and tribulations have made me the person I am today.

My Adventures at Walmart...

Last night I went to Wal-Mart to get Mr. Loco some dog food and waste my money on other random crap (Sham-Wow). So, anywho the BF and I are standing in the dog food section looking at the different types of dog food and there is this girl standing beside me along with two Wal-Mart employees stocking the shelves. Random girl proceeds to say, “I have a question, and this might sound dumb, but the picture of the dog on the can, is that the kind of dog that should eat that food?” So I turn around to see if she is serious and words cannot describe the intensity and seriousness on her face.

So the Wal-mart employee rolling her eyes says, “ No, that’s just a picture”. I think that comment just confused her even more, because I think she was expecting to go to the store and find her dog’s face on a can and be able to feed him. ( I was also thinking what have you been feeding your dog at this point)

I am standing there trying not to laugh out loud, I also notice the BF has walked off (stupid people seem to scare him off). Random girl is still standing there, even more distressed, and she decides to start talking to me (FYI: I tend to attract random weirdo’s, guess that how I got the BF….just kidding) the look on her face was priceless I mean she was literally about to start crying, she says to me “ You know they say they have a lot of variety, but they LIE, they LIE and that’s what really upsets me”. I quickly grabbled a bunch of stuff off the shelf so I could quickly remove myself from this situation as I had a feeling it was about to take a turn for the worse. (I was envisioning her turning green and Hulking, screaming and yelling in the aisle, throwing cans on the floor, knocking shelves over)

When I finally caught up with the BF we starting talking about, how we hope she doesn’t go to the cereal aisle. I mean is she going to see a box with count chocula on it and think, “Only Vampires can eat that”.

Weekend Update....

Okay, I know I am few days behind, but better late than never! The event in Dallas was so much fun. The BF and I were dressed to impress, and I tried to be a big girl and were heels the whole night, that was a painful lesson!!

There were a lot of people in attendance and tons of activities were going on throughout the day. There were also some really cool vendors that had booths set up, so of course I was compelled to shop. I bought the coolest Hot Pink feather headband from Tara to the T, and the girls selling were dressed up the cutest vintage stewardess outfits.

Another company that caught my eye was Jupiter Moon 3, which specializes, in custom corsets, which made me realize…I need one. I love that look of small waists and big boobs!!!

Also, to my surprise they did a huge Burlesque show toward the end of the night. There were a variety of performers in all shapes and sizes. Also, to my excitement there was a black burlesque performer name Honey Coco Bordeauxx, who did a really good show!! Something rather funny we made note of was the fact that 95% of the dancers who attended the event were from Austin, how random!!

The rest of the weekend was nice and relaxing (except for those crazy Dallas drivers). I did get to go to Sprinkles Cupcakes and I have to say **YUCK**. I am sorry people; those cupcakes were not all that great. There are a handful of places here in Austin that are way better. I have to give a show-out to my favorite hometown place “ Polkadots Cupcake Factory”. Omg….if you ever come to Austin you have to visit this place, it’s the best ever. Plus the owners are beyond sweet!

When I stop being lazy I plan to post some pictures I took at the event! I posted some of the links to a few of the vendors and my favorite dancer!

PS....Something fun my sister found a generator to make your own Burlesque name:
**Post what you came up with***

Bored at Work!!!

Today has been such a slooooooooooooow day at work. I am sitting here thinking about all the things I need to be getting ready for Dallas on Saturday for the Pin-Up event. I am super stoked about going and have been thinking about other places I want to check out while I am in town. The first thing on my list is to go Sprinkles Cupcakes. I've heard of of this place, but never had the chance to eat at one. Austin has some kick-ass cupcake bakeries, but Sprinkles is supposed to be the original .

I am hoping to come back from Dallas safe and sound and in one piece, but they have some of the worse drivers EVER!!! Its the only place, I've witnessed a person driving, reading a book, putting on makeup, eating and giving birth all at the same time..(okay maybe the last one is a fib...but you get my point)

Plus the BF has Road Rage, so this should be a super exciting trip!! Well I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Camel Toe

So, the BF makes this comment to me today "Baby, you look like you got a camel toe"...this led into a convo about the song "Camel Toe", by Fannypack...which leads into another convo regarding the fact he had never heard of the song.

So to prove to him that I was not crazy, found the video on YouTube...has anyone else not heard of this song?

Twilight Movie...

So, I am behind the news curve and just came across this article about the lady in St. Louis who found the Twilight script in the trash. According to the article, the lady found the scripts for the new “Twilight” movie and another movie called “Memoirs”. Being a good citizen she quickly returned them back to the entertainment company and in exchange in for her good deed she was invited to the premiere for movie.

Now there is no reason for me to lie, I got a thing for a Vampire named Edward Cullen, and I can admit it!! So, that got me thinking how different my actions would have been from this chick’s, as I would have used this chance of a lifetime as leverage. Below you will find my letter to the Entertainment Company.


From the Desk


Miss Kitty

Dear Entertainment Company:

Today I came across two important documents that I think you would like to get back. I would love to return these documents too you, so they don’t fall in the wrong hands, but require the following things:

1. Robert Pattison (all Vampired out)

2. Zac Efron (you know when I get bored with Robert)

3. My hour with Oprah

4. actually forget Oprah I want my own show “The Miss Kitty Show”

5. To replace Kristen Stewart as Bella ( I think a little color in your movie will do it some good)

6. A lifetime supply of Red Vines and Ruby Red Squirt

I expect all my demands to be meet in a timely manner. If they are not meet, I will have no choice but to splash this script all over the Internet. Please feel free to contact me, and have a pleasant day!

Hugs and Kisses,

Miss Kitty

* I think I will put it on Scented Hello Kitty Letterhead, I don't want it to seem to harsh*

Bored at Work!!!

So, I am at work minding my own business eating some Red Vines. I swear 10 people walked by my desk asking me for a Twizzler and I am like these are Red Vines (which is 100% times better). Not one person in this office knew what a damn Red Vine, I start to think are you all crazy people (well its been established that I work with a bunch of nuts) how can you not know what Red Vines are, how has your life been complete.

It’s always crazy when something you love is off the radar for other people. The only thing I can think of it’s a regional thing, since I am originally from Missouri.

I’ve created a short list of Things Miss Kitty Loves that it seems no one in Austin has ever heard of before:

1. Red Vines
2. Ruby Red Squirt
3. Hardee’s Resturant – Not Carl Jr’s, but Hardee’s

Prison Time

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to go to prison. I am sitting here watching Lock-Up Raw, and compared to these prisoners I am starting to feel like I am being cheated in life. These people are getting free food, education, job training, medical and a roof over their heads. They even have TV in their cells; it’s like a day spa over there. Just lock me up in my own cell and slap some cucumbers over my eyes and I am good to go!!!

But being honest, I am way too lazy to do the work to get put in prison....oh well!! One thing I did find kind of crazy, was the release of this guy who had been locked up for 24 years to be released due to DNA proving he didn't commit the crime. I mean what do you say to someone that you've take 24 years of thier life away..... Our Bad". I would be so pissed, I would end up back in jail for putting a hurting on those people....LOL!!!

Also, for anyone who watches trashy reality tv like me, some kooky prison news for you. I read today that Saaphyri from Flavor of Love and I Love Money 2 is in jail. She listed her prison mailing address on Twitter (Who needs Twitter in jail....LOL) so her "fans" can write her:

Saaphyri Wanda Scott
X359545 C.I.W. Barnerberg B 1137 Low 16756
Chino Corona Rd. Corona, CA 92880

Bored at Work!!!

I am bored at work, and the people in my office are talking about stuff that is making my ears bleed and my skin crawl…I mean who comes to work to show off their rash they aquired last night, ewww gross????? People are so GROSS to me, and drive me insane with their nonesense.

Their convo’s did get me thinking, how neat would it be if tools used on the Internet could be used in real-life.

1. Have you ever seen out of the corner of your eye that person about to come up too you and start tallking,and you want nothing to do with that convo….well this is where your Pop-up Blocker comes into play.

2. How about you’ve been tricked into talking to someone and you could careless what their saying (you know when your eyes start to glaze over and you hear the teacher from Charlie Brown….bog wog wog) here comes your Spam Blocker it will help you cut out all that crap you don’t need to be bothered with.

3. Its Saturday night your out of the club and that icky guy is eyeballing you, Anti-Virus to the Rescue or even better DELETE!!!

4. So, the guy has gotten pass the Anti-Virus (damn Norton) open up Paint and edit that guy to your dreams desire….ha ha ha

So, on another note went and saw the Wolverine Movie, and it was decent. Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds were Delish, but the storyline was kind of lame. During the movie there was someone sitting behind us, who felt the need to clap like a crazy person everytime they laughed….(oh where oh where was my Spam blocker then). It was pretty annoying, because the movie was not even funny. Another factor to prove my point of how much people drive me insane!!!

Stripper Song....

So, I was sitting at work today jamming to my online radio when one of the best songs (EVER) comes on Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me." I had to ask myself "Why does this song make me want to swing on a stripper pole". When certain songs come on , I get that urge to slather on some body glitter, tape on some sequin red pasties and whip my hair all around!!!

I don’t care what anyone says, everyone has a Stripper song. That song that makes your inner stripper want to come out, you know your hidden Champange or Crystal.....(please forgive me if this your name!!!) Now, I am not saying actually taking your clothes off for money, I personally could never see myself as a stripper, I mean to each its own but I would look like a Hot Mess swirling my jiggly thighs on a pole. Plus its hard enough for me to walk in flats let alone those 10-inch hooker heels.

I guess the point of what I am saying, is that your Stripper song, makes you swing your hips a little bit more, gives you that Sexy confidence and basically makes you feel like a BAD GIRL!!! Even if its for a mere 3.28 mins, sometimes its nice to be taken out of your everyday BLAH and be turned into that Sexy Strippper...

So, here is Miss Kitty's top 3 inner Stripper Songs!!

1. Pour Some Sugar on Me – Def Leppard
2. More Human than Human – White Zombie
3. Cherry Pie - Warrant

So, what’s your inner Stripper Song?

Pecan Festival

Just came back from the Pecan Festival downtown. I love street festivals, because of the all great street food, and I got my fair share of it today:

1. A Jumbo corndog
2. Cave man size Turkey leg
3. Brautwurst
4. and I washed it all down with a SMALL bag of kettle corn:

Another fun thing about these festivals is the fun sight seeing you get to do, here are some the fun things that caught my eye:

1. Weave in the street
This just boggled my mind, how the HELL do you loose your weave in the middle of the street. I mean was this person walking down the street and felt their weave get loose and just said "Oh well guess I will just toss it". I felt bad for the poor little weave, and brought it home, if anyone is looking to adopt a nice piece a weave please send me an email.....Just kidding!!!
2. Worst looking Drag Queen.......EVER!!!!!!

I almost knocked over a small child to get a picture of this guy. The only words I can describe his look was HOT MESS!!! I mean I am all for Drag Queens, but this guy should get his membership revoked ASAP.

Today was a fun day, but it was Hot as Hades outside, so our visit to the festival was short lived. I am now sitting in the AC enjoying my yummy Sonic Limeade and about to go the movies!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!

My Kind of Night!!

So, after taking a 2 day "mental health" break from work, (I just told everyone I had a 48 hour case of swine flu)I came across something to brighten my spirits. There having a huge Pin-up Event in Dallas in two weeks. Guess who is going???

Also, just watched this show on MTV $5.00 Cover, actually L-O-V-E-S it. Its by the same guy who did Hustle and Flow, which was another favorite of mine. (Because you know its hard out here for a PIMP) I think it would be cool if they did something like this in Austin. I checked out a few of the artist from the show, and they are really good.
