Me and the baby I stole

Her name is Loa and I have stolen her from her parents. They don't know yet. Don't tell them.

I saw a dog on a floaty boat on the lake. He was silly.

A Day in Nicole's Flip Flops


7:30 Wake up

8:00 Workout with Cristina in her garage. We are doing P90X (as mentioned in an earlier post). It is insane.

9:00 End workout, drive home, eat breakfast, shower, put on flip flops

10:00 On Tuesdays, I have a staff meeting for RCC. Cameron and Ron both bring their babies, so I mostly just play with the babies and try to ignore Baron. On the other days, I either run errands or do RCC work during this morning time.

12:00 I eat lunch.

1:30 I head to Flying Colors and set up for the day. I really like my job.

3:00 The crazy children arrive. I greet them on the bus and shuffle them into the right classes.

3:01 - 5:30 Attend to kids that need to be attened to at Flying Colors.

5:30 - 6:00 Debrief day with staff and clean up, lock up site.

Evenings: On Wednesdays, I have BSB (Bible Study with my friends). On Thursdays, there is Ray of Hope/Flying Colors Staff Dinner. Also, there is SYTYCD on both of those days.

In my spare time, I like to read, wear skirts, eat Doritos, play fetch with my cat, and pester my family.

Uncle John Teaches Me About Socks

I read humorous trivia books at night before I fall asleep because they are light and fun. Uncle John's Bathroom Readers are some of my favorites.

Well, last night I learned that 95% of people put on their left sock first. I have never thought about this before. But I put on my right sock first! I am in the 5% minority.

I am going to observe the putting on of socks today and test their stats.

Stephen Colbert, will you be my friend?

I think Stephen Colbert is funny. I would like him to come to my house and make me and my friends laugh.

A Writhing of my Insides

Today, at Flying Colors, I was OVERCOME with stomach pain. Here is an accurate photograph of me during that time:

I have deduced the experience to "food poisoning" and I blame BGO. I feel better now after ridding my body of most of what was inside it.

Stupid BGO.

HP fans and phones

Just in case you don't also read Lynn's blog, I am providing this link for your reading pleasure.

A Short Story by Nicole Raden

Once upon a yesterday I was driving to Ray of Hope summer camp to visit my friends. Ray of Hope summer camp is being held at Nooksack Elementary School. I did not know my way there but I got directions. To find my way home, I thought I would reverse the directions. Easy peasy.

Well, I got lost.

Five times.

I was mad. Irate, even. Some might say I was fuming. I was so incrediby mad that after work that day, I went to Costco and bought a GPS!

And now I will never be lost again.

The End.

HP Town

Is where I am living right now. We have rented all the movies and are watching them in succession.

Is Harry Potter actually cool? Or is he sup nerdy and we all just think it's cool because we're nerds, too?



I learned last night from one of my books that 4% of people never laugh at work.

It didn't say, but I wonder - Where do you think they work?

Giant worm

Today I saw* a giant worm. Giant. GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS SIZE GIANT. I'm serious.

*I'd like it to be known that when I typed this out, I accidently typed the word 'saw' backwards, so it said 'was.' I almost published "Today I was a giant worm." That would have been funny.


My friends and I are trying to implement a new alternative to swearing. Inspired by my roommate Rachel, we have come up with the following exclamation:

"What the Rach?"

Please feel free to use this as often as you would like.

For real.

For real Rachel made Ricky a facebook page. You can find him under Ricky Martin VanBuren Raden (note VanBuren is one word).

last week Sharon (my boss) went into the Rebound office and saw a full grown man squatting outside the back door.


This is outside the back door of our office. In public. Pants around the ankles.

Sharon went around front.
