Ever feel like this? Maybe I do (a little bit) today.

All in just one day:

Driving through Moab and the tire on the truck falls off...literally.

While sitting in the truck and watching the tire roll by us, through the intersection, bounce, and land in the street, I decide we might need it again. As I jump out of the truck to chase down the tire, my phone falls into the street and (even though it had already been run over and lost for a week at the Dulles Airport and dropped several times on hard wood floors) the screen dies and my celltron doesn't work any more. RIP.
Of course, there is no T-mobile store in Moab.

The tow truck driver was kind enough to get the truck to the shop.
The shop employee said he could fix the truck. Hooray!
...in 2 weeks. Not so good.
Think the day could get any worse for a girl? Yes, my monthly friend decided to stop in. Brilliant! (Maybe I should've kept that one to myself but I felt like it was the icing on the cake.)

I suppose it wasn't ALL bad. Got to meet the whole town of Moab, make new friends, and play in the red dirt.
You know what they say, when in Moab...do some hiking.

HINT: I am 99% MORE likely to want to help you if you ask please and say thank you than if you just TELL me to do something.

Meet Donna.
So this lady wants to gain another 500 pounds to break the 1,000 pound mark and become the world's fattest woman. Why would anyone want to do that?!
She already holds the Guinness World Record as the world's biggest mom who gave birth at 520lbs. Her partner is a man weighing only 150lbs who is a self-confessed fat admirer.
She eats whole cakes, bags of donuts, and up to 70 pieces of sushi at a time and spends $750 a week for groceries. She gets tired after walking 20ft and then has to use a motorized cart to get around. What kind of life is that?! She has a daughter and family to take care of for heaven's sake.
She said she likes to eat and people like to watch her eat. Um...ewww! What if she was trying to be the world's skinniest person, would people applaud her then. Why oh why??

I recently read this. Doesn't it just make your heart smile?!

Love is forgiving and love is for giving.

Two things are on my mind today:
1) I have friends who have cool giveaways on their blogs. I live out of a suitcase kinda so I don't even have all my things let alone cool things to give away.
2) I said something about being back in DC today to which my friend Szilvia replied,
"WOMAN settle down for a second please..prince charming has NO WAY of catching up with you!!!!!!"

And so I mushed these thoughts together to save time and it led me to this super sweet LOVE GIVEAWAY 2010 idea:

As most of you know, I'm kinda boy retarded and I just don't date guys (or girls...gosh). I mean, I go ON dates...I just don't DATE people with any form of seriousness. I don't know why. Whatever. But maybe it is time for deanna to have a boyfriend.

So here's the deal...I'm headed back to Utah next week on the 24th for a bit. The first 5 boys who take me on a date will be in the running to capture "deanna's boyfriend" status.
I know...you're thinking this is a big deal, right?! And it is.

You have 9 days, boys, so leave a comment, email, facebook, text, phone, knock on my door, or tie a note around the neck of a magical unicorn... however you want to find me but hurry to get in on this once in a lifetime LOVE GIVEAWAY.

Feel free to send gifts of kindness, flowers, trips to exotic places, itineraries of possible dates, etc.*

*gifts probably won't increase your chances of becoming my boyfriend but will gladly be accepted.
**Thanks to Tom for the photos...even the creepy deangelina one that doesn't look a thing like me (I hope).

Most things don't bother me, but for some reason my toilet paper must roll over instead of under. I place the blame on an episode of Step By Step (you know part of ABC's TGIF tv series lineup in the 90's) when Suzanne Somers' OCD character says her TP has to roll that way. I thought about it and decided that was correct. Now, several years later, if I go to a restaraunt or someone else's house and their toilet paper is rolling under, I'll politely change it for them if I am able. I think I have a problem.

Whether it was my bedroom at my parent's house, apartment living, or strange family living, I have always had a room on the top floor...until recently. And I have found that LIVING ON THE BOTTOM FLOOR IS SO DARN NOISY. Only now do I understand the little notes or banging of the broom on the ceiling from the people down below (as ridiculous as I thought it was). So here is my public apology for any time I have ever been a noisy upstairs neighbor, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Obviously this normal place of business has a problem with this phenomenon.
What the?! Come on people...really?!
I think I'm a little grossed out.

I totally spotted this beauty of a place in McLean, VA.
Right now I'm in Wisconsin.
Think I'm gonna eat there when I return to Virginia? You betcha.
With a name like that there is no way I could resist!

If I could put a scratch n sniff sticker on my blog entry today it would be the scent of Viva La Juicy.
Boys: you won't be able to resist it
Girls: it's super juicy (and the boys won't be able to resist it)
You must get it under your nose and get a whiff of it as soon as possible.

While you keep us entertained, you lack in the actual cleaning ability. I find you lost in corners and you often shut doors and lock yourself in places where your battery then runs out and we have to search to find you. Also you seem to only push dirt around and make my job harder. DJ Roomba, you're fired!

I was able to walk around Washington DC a little bit on Monday and it made me realize this:
I LOVE my America!
