Ok actually I guess it’s the grand canyon state. But so far I’ve seen alot more cactus then grand canyon. P.S. for those who didn’t know? I’m in Mesa staying with my moms cousin for a while working at her husbands orthodontist office… working is a loose term, perhaps standing around wishing I could do stuff would be better. So far I have learned…

120 degrees? Completely possible. I thought I knew hot before, turns out I never even met the guy
sometimes you can be so hot that getting in the pool just makes you feel gross
Little boys can actually be terrorists and when working together can actually tie you to a chair
Saying “Nice to meet you”  to someone you’ve never seen in your life just isn’t good enough for some people, the may prefer “Wow your teeth are really crooked Kelli, we’ll have to get braces on you right away”
Mesa Arizona is sortof like a little annex of Utah… complete with tons of 8 kids families and children with BOM names all over the place
My cousins husband thinks I’m a so sheltered or whatever that I can’t even identify a saguaro cactus. WRONG sir my mother is a plant genius and I’m pretty sure even people on the east coast know what those are

:) Also these people have a pet pig… snoop hog I can’t tell you how weird I think that is. and they treat it like a baby and it sleeps in the house, so weird. Anyways I think tomorrow I am going to try to cook an egg on the street just to see if it can really be done, I’ve wanted to try that since I was a little kid.

Also let the hunt for The filthy 5, the worlds worst park commence!

So today I was looking at the for rent stuff in mesa arizona just to see what the price ranges are cause I am considering dental hygiene school down there. Craigslist is a great palce to find things and housing is no exception to this rule. It just may not be the sort of housing you are expecting. Here are a few of my favorite ads straight from Phoenix Arizona where apparently the creepers all live:

Fan of American Idol? Here’s ONE even better – Try out for Roommate Idol!
Millions are sure to apply, so get in line early. Instead of a record contract at the end, you get a fabulous new roommate – me!
Room for rent – private bathroom, private garage – all just for you! Recently renovated 999 square foot condo in South Scottsdale showcases granite countertops, new appliances, new carpet and the best roommate in the Valley. Me? 30 yo old professional female, works M-F, enjoys working out and hanging out with friends. No drugs, no drama (except for the kind once found on My So Called Life!) please! You – preferably female non smoker, grad student or professional, with great taste in roommates, able to pay the $500 rent plus utilities on a monthly basis (novel idea for some out there it seems) and a love of 90210 a real plus! Call or e-mail me if interested – you won’t be disappointed!
If you make it through the first round of try-outs, get ready for the vote-off show – ten finalists will make it and one will earn the right to move in with me!
Immediate availability, One month’s rent security deposit required, all rights reserved.

This girl really wants to show of her personality apparently. Besides having to “earn the right” to live with someone sound pretty crappy. Also this girl has like 5 ads put different ways in one she says “let St Valentine guide you into a new home”

have a spare room to rent. LADIES ONLY PLEASE. Nice home in NW Phoenix. High Speed Internet and cable access all utilities included. I live by myself am single and good looking. Would like to have a female roommate in good shape and willing to trade favors in exchange for rent. Please include a picture with your response.

AHHHH DON’T DO IT GIRLS!! Besides I hate it when boys are just like “I’m good looking”.

if you are looking to save some $$$$ or get away from a bad situation, i am willing to share my 1br apt with you at no cost. no need to pay for anything. you must be clean d&d free , feminine, OPEN MINDED & NO DRAMA. Tell me about situation & send pics, no pics no reply…
