Has anyone else noticed DYW`s absence? - Mood:Good
Monday August 23 201010:04:55 PM |
I just noticed she's gone. And then read her journal. Apparently it's for Ramadan.

Anyway...I haven't had dinner yet. I'm thinking about not having any.

Today's been a rollercoaster. Started back to school today. Our first day went well, but my assistant could have been a lot more help than she was. I have to very nicely tell her to step it up.

Talked to my parents a lot tonight. Feel like I'm taking too much for granted.

Anyhoo...time for Danielle to meet up with Caroline on the Real Housewives. Good fluff for the end of the day.

Why did my avy die? - Mood:Good
Saturday August 21 20102:04:18 PM |
Monday school starts back. Meet the teacher was Thursday night and went really well despite it being a thousand degrees and ridiculously cramped in my room.

I'm really excited about this year, but nervous too. This is officially my first "start of school", as I started last year in October.

I'm worried about having a hard time memorizing the new names. Luckily, I have quite a few kids from last year.

My assistant was so quiet at the meet-and-greet. I'm sure she'll be an excellent assistant, but I'm concerned with her being the main communicator on the days I leave early.

I have so much to get done, but I am putting it off. I spent all of the last two days working on it, and I'll spend all of tomorrow too. I guess I'm taking today as my main break.

Just went to El Patron, mi favorito restaurante, and ate like a fat kid. Mmm...

It's rainy and beautiful.

Michael J. Fox`s Etch-a-sketch - Mood:Confident
Saturday August 14 20105:06:58 PM |
This will be our team name tonight at the Trivia Tournament of Champions. Or Roman Polanski, kid tested, Switzerland approved! First place takes home a $100 bar tab and $100 in cash. Wish us luck. I'm only good at a handful of categories, and I'm being brought along out of pity, but I'll take it. And answer all the children's books categories as well as the word jumbles to earn my keep.

I went school supply shopping today. It's one of my most favorite things to buy. And it's a tax-free weekend, so that's exciting. I also got some new shoes and some green pants. Pictures coming.

My dog's had diarrhea for a couple of days. I'm feeding her plain baked chicken and white rice tonight on my mom's advice. Anyone else have any dog-diarrhea advice? No pictures coming.

Let`s all do the tummy tango! - Mood:Hopeful
Wednesday August 04 20104:50:19 PM |
This song is majorly stuck in my head: I hope this works

We're doing "restaurant camp" this week, so we're talking about nutrition. And of course, dancing to the Tummy Tango.

I have a new assistant. She's super-quiet, in a bad way.

And I'm on break for a bit until I go back to work for a class to prepare us for the school year.

Although I'm looking forward to finding out more about the year, I wish I didn't have to go back.

Also, I smoked two cigarettes today after three days without. What was I thinking?

Anyway, I'll just be over here doing the tummy tango and eating my boiled peanuts.

Beer. - Mood:Depressed
Tuesday August 03 20107:10:18 PM |
I used to think beer was really gross. When I would drink it, I'd drink the crappy light domestics (Natty light, coors light, bud, miller, etc.). But as time went on, and I tried other varieties, I realized beer wasn't by NATURE gross. It was just the kinds I was buying/drinking.

I'm by no means a beer snob, but I'm really glad to have left crappy beer behind.

What are a few of your favorites?

I went to the wizarding world on Saturday. - Mood:Good
Monday August 02 20107:52:56 PM |
Incidentally, it was Harry Potter's birthday. Nobody even cared.

It was f*cking awesome though. When you walk into Hogsmeade you're overwhelmed by the awesomeness. But all the roofs are "snowy" and it's 100 degrees, and the snow is just a big fat tease.

Butter beer was AWESOME. Almost exactly what I imagined it to be.

Ollivander's sucked. Don't get me wrong, everything looked totally awesome, but it was just too packed and the wands were named after characters. I don't remember Harry going to Ollivander's and buying the "Harry Potter" model.

The Forbidden Journey ride in Hogwarts, and the entire queue for it, is probably the single best part. Inside the queue there are many portraits (including the fat lady) and it snowed on us while we were there.

The ride itself is like the Spiderman ride at IOA but on crack. In short, amazing.

Dear Mario Kart creators, - Mood:Good
Sunday August 01 20101:05:50 PM |
I really think your venues are a bit too dangerous for racing. I mean, Bowser's Castle? It's surrounded by pools of lava. With few barriers, especially at dangerous hairpin turns.

And Rainbow Road? Hosting your race in outer space may have seemed like a great idea, but the reality is danger.

I really urge you to consider some safer venues for future races.


P.S. Real life Mario Kart has also been shown to be quite dangerous, as my roommate decided Friday night to play by running as fast as he could down a moving walkway, then apparently he got blue shelled, because he crashed into the moving walkway, busting his knee and mangling his toe. Perhaps a warning label should be issued to not try this in real life.

That will be all.

Drunk youthinking - Mood:Indifferent
Saturday July 24 20107:34:01 PM |
So I went out last night and got pretty well drunk for the first time in a while. And I came home and got on youthink, passing out in the chair, hands on the keyboard of the laptop. My boyfriend made fun of me a lot for it this morning as I battled my hangover.

I'm getting too old for this! Usually I go out and have one or two drinks, but last night there were shots being offered, which is what did me in. I don't know how people take shots and DON'T get sick.

I've been hungover pretty much all day, sadly, now I'm feeling some better, waiting on Chinese to be delivered. (After watching Top Chef, I got really hungry!)

The other day I saw a double rainbow. Seriously. - Mood:Indifferent
Sunday July 18 201012:12:00 PM |
Happy Sunday!

I was walking my dog, pondering that "What would you say if someone asked 'Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your lord and savior?'" question in Generals and I realized, I'm just plain not sold on Jesus. The first commandment is to have NO other gods. And I don't buy the holy trinity argument that Jesus "is" God. That's like trying to make it work through a technicality. Also Jesus never said he was, so I don't buy it.

Anyway, that's my religious talk for the morning.

It's really hot. Might have to spend the day inside on the wii or outside at the pool. I'm glad I got everything done yesterday so today can be a play day.

Also, might go see a movie, as the only one I've seen this summer is Toy Story 3. Any suggestions?

Oh, and I had a weird dream last night about my ex-boyfriend. What does this MEAN?

Down from 68, I`m now 45 years old! - Mood:Good
Sunday July 11 201012:32:20 PM |
So, my roommate bought a wii on Friday, and it's pretty much revolutionized our lives ever since.

The wii keeps encouraging us to take a break, but it's not the boss of us!

I've played them before, but it's so awesome to have one to play anytime. And even though we're still at home, in front of the tv, I love how it gets us all together and off the couch.

PLUS it makes figuring out what to get my roommate for his birthday VERY easy. Hooray for that.

Last night we had people over for a game night, and it was really fun. It was all Billy's friends, mostly, because I've become jaded with mine, and then my two friends who were in town from NJ came over and it was just good old fashioned fun.

Anyway, today's the last of my four day weekend, and I have to do laundry (Should have done it before the wii came into my life!) How was your weekend?

The Cowardly Cactus - Mood:Good
Friday July 09 201011:58:16 AM |
Last night in a drunken stream of consciousness, my friends and I wrote the story of the Cowardly Cactus. It's best not to tell you the story, as it makes no sense whatsoever (my roommate didn't see the need for the story to follow any sequence) but we made some fun illustrations.

Here's the cactus eating a pear:

And here's the cactus watching the other cacti being massacred:

And the cactus turning into a dolphin:

Inspired by an impending apocalypse... - Mood:Hopeful
Thursday July 08 20103:34:46 PM |
I've started working out again.

I'm re-reading The Stand, which if you've never heard of it, is a Stephen King book in which most of the human population is wiped out by a very serious flu virus. Those that survive have to walk/bike across the country to meet with other survivors, and then there's the hard work of survival to contend with. Reading it, I realized I'm woefully unprepared for an apocalypse, and I want to change that.

You know, because 2012 is right around the corner and all

So I don't actually believe there's an apocalypse coming or anything, never expect the apocalypse!

And it feels really good to get back into it. It's been a while, and I forgot how awesome it feels. I woke up yesterday feeling SO refreshed and alive. I was AWAKE when I woke up. Crazy.

What to do? - Mood:Good
Sunday July 04 20102:33:00 PM |
I'm debating what to do with myself today. I could go to Typhoon Lagoon (waterpark) by meself, bring my book, and enjoy the weather, which is not too sunny or hot today miraculously. It may rain again, but that wouldn't bother me too much, I'd just jump in the lazy river.

Then tonight, a friend wants to go to Disney to watch the fireworks, but it's going to be insane and I don't really want to be part of the insanity. He's suggesting we go to a Disney resort and watch from there, but I feel even that will be out of control insane.

Down the road in a small town called Celebration is a celebration (ha) with fireworks and music, but I'd be going by myself, and though I'll go to the waterpark alone, going there alone would feel...desperate.

Or I could just do nothing and stay home on YT all day, watching movies and chilling out.

What to do, what to do.

Good morning YT! - Mood:Good
Saturday July 03 201011:29:12 AM |
It's a beautiful day in sunny Orlando and so far I've spent most of my morning here. Ha. Well, on my porch on here.

I wanted to go to the beach today but it's going to be crowded as f*ck, and you know how crowded f*ck is. So I decided against it. Maybe when James gets off we'll go to the waterpark for a while. It'll be crazy crowded too, but I won't have to drive far for it, so I won't mind as much.

I really need to clean up because we had a few people over last night and we made a mess. I'm just putting it off until I get motivated. On my days off, I love a good lazy morning without work. I'll fix a huge breakfast in a few and then go to it I suppose.

HELP! Please and thank you. - Mood:Overwhelmed
Thursday July 01 20105:40:22 PM |
It's nearly time to leave for trivia, and we've got NO good team names.

So please, give me your best.

I'm thinking something about Al Gore and the masseuse. Or whatever...

But my creativity was all used up for the day so I've got nothing.

Any and all suggestions will be considered and the winner will be honored as my hero of the day.

NPR- - -Radio for old people - Mood:Cautious
Wednesday June 30 20108:00:51 PM |
I get really annoyed at some of my friends sometimes. I really only have a few friends that I consider to be intellectual. A rare few I can be serious with and have an intelligent discussion.

I find myself often beginning sentences with, "I heard on NPR..." and the other day my friend says, "NPR- - radio for old people". To which I should have replied, "CBS- - TV for stupid people" but I didn't. I don't really have a problem with CBS, it just happens to be one of his favorite stations.

Anyway, I love NPR because I love being informed about the world and getting insight about things I previously did not know. Does this make me old?

This same friend is constantly criticizing (more like poking fun at) me for trying to eat and live sustainably.

It's led to a pretty dramatic rift between us over the past year or so.

Also, why is there not a "thoughtful" mood?

Things I find weird. - Mood:Good
Tuesday June 29 20108:48:59 PM |
People who think marijuana is a bad drug, but are willing to take dozens of pharmaceutical prescription drugs, even for minor problems such as eyelash growth.

People who don't enjoy nature.

Speed limit signs that do not end in a 5 or 0. Or are under 10 miles an hour. How am I supposed to regulate my speed to be 7 miles an hour!? And furthermore, why is 8 miles an hour so wildly dangerous? I think any speed limit sign that doesn't end in 5/0 is *asking* to be stolen.

People who stress out on vacation (I love people watching vacationers)

People who genuinely believe FoxNews is fair and balanced.

Wrestling/MMA fighting.

People who don't enjoy playing games.

Grown-ups who pee on toilet seats. You're a grown-ass woman, if you can't hover without dripping on the seat, clean it up!

People who question the way you eat.

Your contributions?

Suicide is the most selfish act - Mood:Good
Monday June 28 201010:05:40 PM |
Circle yes or no.

To radion, whoever the f*ck you are, I don't know if you were serious in the least, but I must say, suicide is the SINGLE most selfish thing a person can do. What a stupid way to go out.

And "finalizing your affairs" doesn't make it any less so.

Selfish to the max.

But if you want to be remembered for being a selfish prick, then by all means, don't let me stop you.

Come on, England! - Mood:Lovestruck
Sunday June 27 20104:33:06 PM |
It's been a good weekend. Friday night my boyfriend and I went out for dinner at an Irish pub, then to see Toy Story 3. But we had some time to kill in between, so we stopped by House of Blues to listen to Ruth King play the blues and have a few drinks. Then we went to Toy Story 3, 3-D, and I have to say, 3-D movies make me tired for some reason. I can't stand to wear those glasses for two hours straight. I'm glad I don't have to wear glasses, because I just can't handle it. Anyway, after that we went to Ghirardelli's for dessert, which was over the top, but nice. Altogether, we spent way too much money, but considering we hardly ever go out, it was worth it.

Yesterday I did approximately nothing. I read and watched tv and ate and that was it. So that was of course awesome.

And today, so far, all I've done is make breakfast and watch England lose the World Cup.

The best way to worship God. - Mood:Overwhelmed
Tuesday June 22 20104:46:15 PM |
Let me preface this by saying I'm not a very religious person. At all.

I believe in God (kinda) insofar as I believe there is a force in the universe that is good. Maybe it's an all-knowing creator, maybe not, who am I to say?

But I think if you do believe in God, you have to admit the best way to worship Him is by taking fantastic f*cking care of the beautiful planet he's given us.

Agree or disagree.

Drinking Advice - Mood:Good
Wednesday June 16 20107:04:28 PM |
I've been a beer/wine girl for a long time now, and strictly beer when I go out drinking, but tonight I want to change it up.

I don't drink liquor often, and vodka and I have a troubled history, but I want to try something new, interesting, and amazing tonight.

Any advice?

New avatar and profile after a year - Mood:Good
Monday June 07 201012:48:18 AM |
I figured it was time for a change, since I'm on YT for the first time again in a few months.

I just don't make time anymore.

But school's officially out, all my little ones graduated on Saturday. It was bittersweet. They did such a good job on their performances (best in the school in my humble opinion).

And tomorrow I go home to SC for a week to visit with family. Then it's back to school for summer camp, where I get to be with the school-age kids all summer.

It'll be nice to have a week off. I should be getting to bed, as I'm leaving for the airport at 8:30, but I took a nap around 6 PM tonight and woke up at 8:30, so I'm not quite tired.

Spent the day at Typhoon Lagoon, one of Disney's two waterparks, which was pretty awesome but exhausting. We bought annual passes for after 2:00 the other day for James's birthday.

Alexander Skarsgard can have sex with me anytime, anywhere, anyway. - Mood:Good
Sunday April 18 20108:38:06 PM |
Seriously. He's honestly the hottest man I've ever seen in my life.

Also, True Blood comes back soon and I'm really excited about it.

I used to think True Blood was just softcore porn. But then I realized I was wrong. It's medium-core porn, with an exciting story.

I`m not gay but $5 is $5. - Mood:Happy
Saturday April 03 20102:26:19 PM |
It's the trivia tournament of Champions tonight, and I need an original and hilarious team name.

My two favorites of the past were "I don't do cocaine, I just like the smell of it" and "I'm not gay but $5 is $5". But I can't use a previously used name at the championship!

Journal-like entry: Spring break just ended It was great because the school I work at had a camp and I got to work with school-age kids instead of 3 year olds all week. Refreshing break from pooped pants and all that.

My boyfriend and I just signed up for this produce delivery service where we get organic produce delivered each week. It's just a box of whatever they decide to send, but it'll make shopping easier.

So names. Please.
