When and where?

Portland or Seattle?

Not March 12th.

Give some input, and after ideas have been thrown out, maybe we can vote.

I'm less concerned with the where than the when.

Not like, "ghettoes were created to confine Jews." But, "Look at what dat bitch is wearing! She is so ghetto."

Is it just another word for poor?

Thursday February 17 201110:31:23 PM |
Backstory: My friend Maria fell off the face of the earth. She was at my party on New Year's and then a couple of weeks after she texted me to say she wanted to hang out. I called her back, left a msg. She called me back, no msg. I called her RIGHT back (case of couldn't get to my phone in time), msg along the lines of "Stupid whore, you just called me, I know you're there."

Anyway. Never heard from her again after that.

Until last night that is.

My friend Derek and I went out to a bar for karaoke (he loves to sing, I usually watch). I wasn't planning on being out late since I worked 8:15-6 today, but, that failed. Because Maria walks in with some friends of hers.

She tells me that on New Year's, she got home and was locked out of her house. For some reason she'd given her key to this guy in her complex she was messing around with.

I was using the explore feature of flickr, looking for a photo for the create an album game in music, and I came across this crazy picture of Spaceship Earth. I clicked on it to find out that it was photographed by a guy I know!

A friend of mine met him through a Disney nerd forum, and then became good friends. Now, whenever he (photographer) and his wife come in town, they always hang out, and my friend, N., gets them into the parks for free and gets them a discounted stay at a resort. Anyway, we've met a few times when they've been down. Nice people.

Nice people are great, but sometimes people can be too nice. And it's a fine line between too nice and creepy. They walk this line well.

Anyway, been miserable all day, feeling sick. Ate a delicious salad for dinner. Rented "The Kids Are All Right"...not what I was expecting at all.

What`s the most awkward thing a kid has said/asked you? - Mood:Good
Friday January 28 20119:06:01 PM |
You know what's fun? Explaining bad history to preschoolers.

"Where does Martin Luther King live now?" Martin Luther King isn't alive anymore.
"Why not?"
He died.
"How did he die?"
A bad man shot him.
"Why did the bad man shoot him?"
Urgh. That was a few weeks ago.

Today we learned about coins, and that each coin had a face and each was a former President. One of my girls asked, "Why are there no girls?" There haven't been any female presidents. "Why not?" Remember when we talked about Martin Luther King? We said he made the laws more fair. One of the things that was unfair is that a long time ago, women didn't get to do everything that men do. But now, thanks to people who worked to change things, women get to do everything the same. Now women can run for president, but so far, none of them have won.

Today was really good though. It was the brownie.

As we often do in our neighborhood, my boyfriend and I saw a raccoon tonight. He asked me, "What is a raccoon? Is it a rodent? Cat? Dog? Bear?" I said, "It's none of those, it's just a raccoon." He said, "You're stupid, everything is something." Well yes, everything is something. It turns out raccoons are something weird. Plodycius or something crazy.

So he spent a long time on wikipedia learning about the raccoon. And as often happens, he got offtrack on wikipedia and ended up learning about penis bones. He was disgusted and enthralled.

Our fish died today. His name was Mao (aka McFishFace). He tragically got caught beneath the tiki man in his tank somehow. RIP Mao.

I cooked an amazingly delicious dinner. I love making great food, because at lunch, I have a secret contest with the rest of the girls to see who has the best lunch. I think I'll win tom.

Will you be watching the state of the union? - Mood:Good
Tuesday January 25 20119:09:11 PM |
I've got it on and will be commenting here. A friend of mine was going to bring a bottle of wine and we were going to bipartisan it up just like Congress is (he's a stupid Republican), but the weather outside is frightful. Warnings abound on tv telling us to not leave unless it's necessary. Was a very scary drive home as I listened on the radio about tornado sightings nearby and the rain flew by in waves.

Today can be divided into 2 parts. Part 1-awesome. From waking up this morning with a massage to lunch time, it was a really great first part of the day. Part 2-rough. I don't know what happened to my students at lunch and naptime, but when I was done with my lunch break, I came back to a class of rowdy non-listening, crazed children. When they left, I had tutoring with the elementary kids. They are always crazy. Then, as I said, the drive home sucked.

Fat Kid Day - Mood:Good
Saturday January 22 20117:44:36 PM |
Do you ever have these? You just eat like a fatty. Eating a lot, and things that are terrible for you?

I'm not having one today, but I feel one coming soon.

I am really enjoying the dinner I made though. Beefaroni with brie, peppers, red onion, and havarti melted on top.

Brie is my favorite cheese at the moment.

So tell me your favorites:

Ice cream:

Let's be fat kids together!

"Do you always walk on your toes?" - Mood:Good
Friday January 21 201111:30:33 PM |
I had a massage today. It was amazing. Best one I've ever had. Her hands were so intuitive! And she knew stuff about me just from touching my body!

She asked if I always walked on my toes. WHAT? How did you know I do that?

She also told me I was double jointed, which I didn't know. Apparently when she asked me to put my arms flat by my body, I did it upside down.

She then told me I was eating healthy and she could tell by my skin's texture and tone.

In addition to being a body reader, she was a phenomenal masseuse. I can't really afford to, but I may go back to her before we move.

Had sushi for dinner from my favorite place in town. Yum.

I'm going to be happy to leave this city, but I really hope I get to visit all my favorite restaurants before mid-March!

Do I have mono? - Mood:Good
Wednesday January 19 201111:46:46 AM |
So I've been sick for almost a week.

And I just got word that one of the kids in my class has mono.

But I don't have insurance. So...should I pay $50 plus however much the lab cost is for the test, OR should I just wait on my immune system and keep taking OTC sh*t and wait it out?

I hate this country sometimes.

I'm so sick of being sick!

It's my fault. I felt it coming Friday, went to the beach anyway on Saturday, and got really doped up and drank a lot at a concert Sunday (but I wasn't about to miss the Cake concert, I'd been looking forward to for weeks!).

I went to work yesterday and left about an hour and a half into it. There were hardly any kids there, I don't know why they stayed open on MLK day when every other school was closed!

Went in today, was supposed to work til 6, and left at 12:30. Napped a lot today and now just feeling miserable. I have this really deep terrible cough. My voice is going. And my tongue is oddly discolored and painful (the back part of it).

Why must I be so fragile?

I'm contemplating staying home tomorrow. If not, I'll work 8:15-4:45. I teach preschool, so it means being around germs a lot.

What do you think, YT?

Hopped up on the "quil" - Mood:Good
Sunday January 16 201111:28:28 PM |
Day quil is actually quite intense, ya'll. Seriously. I got drunk on it.

Then I got drunk on alcohol. Bad choice? I say not. It seemed like a really good idea at the time. Even now, I'm happy with it. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

I've been sick for three days now. Yesterday, went to the beach. Tonight, went to see CAKE live. So, being drunk on the quil was better than feeling like sh*t like I'd done for two days straight. The place was SO crowded. It was crazy and ridiculous. They only played two of the six songs I was *really* hoping to hear, but still it was an amazing concert. Totally worth the quil.

Saturday January 15 201110:44:21 PM |
I went to the beach today. We drove around for a long time trying to find a dog friendly beach, but we failed and decided to smuggle her in. She didn't really go on the beach though. She was in a purse, hovering above the beach. Still, I saw birds hanging out on the sand, and some jellyfish, who apparently can't read!

I went with my boyf's mum and sister. It was way more fun than I imagined it might be, even though I'm kind of sick. When we got back, they sorted through some of their many boxes of crap in our storage. That was exciting, but left a bit of a mess

The beach was freezing.

Tomorrow I have to write lesson plans, plan the Spring Break curriculum, do laundry, go grocery shopping, and go see Cake! Hooray for the last bit. It will be a good reward for all the sh*t that must be done.

How are yoooooooou?

"Ms. Ashley! My shoe says 10. My shoes are ten years old."

This week was a little rough, and I'm glad it's over. I got some beer on my way home because I needed it. And now I'm enjoying it. Hooray beer!

My roommate is really annoying. He hogs the tv when he's home so he can "catch up on the dvr". He once spent an entire day off in front of the tv and said that "cleaning out the DVR" made him feel accomplished. Every time he speaks to his mom on the phone he puts on his pathetic voice. That also annoys me. I would demonstrate, but he's sitting right here.

Happy weekend, how are you?

Time to Party! - Mood:Good
Friday December 31 20103:16:18 PM |

I went out and stocked up on beer. Got 2 six packs of Pipeline Porter (on sale 5.99!) and 1 of hoegaarden and a 4 pack of guiness foreign? I'm confused about it, but curious.

And two bottles of champagne and some disposable chamapgne glasses. I hope 2 is enough, but I think it will be.

I'm going to double post a little, since this forum gets more action than music. Working on my playlist for tonight and...I need some variety. It's kind of awesome as it is, but I am certain I'm missing some ultimately awesome songs. So, what songs do you think belong there?

Also, what are your plans for tonight?

Tuesday December 28 201011:09:44 PM |
flavored shisha. It's delicious. It's like turkish delight, without the sticking to your mouth part. Mmm!!

I got a hookah for Christmas. It rocks.

I also got tickets to see Cake in concert, and some cd's and Futurama season 5 on dvd, and...a huge gift card to The Gap. Not my most favorite store, but I can certainly make it go a long way.

I was lazy all day today. But I accomplished cooking two meals and beating 9-4 on Mario Wii. I'm almost through with the starcoins for World 5 too.

Tomorrow I have to go back to work. But only for 6 hours and only at camp, so it will be super easy and awesome.

The only thing that sucks about holiday time is that nothing good is on tv. I think it's punishment for not having better things to do.

I saw Rudolph's Shiny New Year tonight. Worst show ever.

Where have all the manners gone? - Mood:Good
Tuesday December 28 201012:56:26 PM |
Whatever happened to thanking someone who goes out of their way to do something nice for you?

Or saying please when asking for something?

Or using complete sentences when interacting with others in a business setting?

Are manners dead everywhere? Is this an American phenomenon? Maybe it's just Florida.

One of the world`s richest men... - Mood:Good
Saturday December 18 20102:00:03 PM |
Plays bridge. Yes, folks, Bill Gates is one mean bridge playing machine. My boyfriend works at a hotel that holds a lot of conferences…recently a bridge conference for all the top players in the nation.

Apparently Mr. Gates was not among the top players, but chose to attend anyway for the exciting joy that is being a bridge spectator.

Bruno Mars, Grammy-nominated artist, on the other hand, stayed there when he had a performance at the House of Blues. He demonstrated himself to be one giant douche. In my boyfriend’s recount, he apparently asked, “So, are my bags already up there?” To which my bf replied, “Yes sir, your bags have been taken up to your suite.” Bruno: “My prada bags?” My bf: “Sir, I have no idea what kind of bags they were, but they were yours.” Bruno: “So did you give me the penthouse?” My bf: “Unfortunately sir, that is not what you booked.”

If Christmas were a competition, teachers would win. - Mood:Hysterical
Friday December 17 20102:55:14 PM |
I had to make two trips to my car today to carry all the gifts I received. I think I got a total of $75 in Starbucks gift cards, which means I'll be having some caffeinated mornings through all of January

And a bunch to Barnes and Noble and Target. Plus, I've fully replenished my previously depleted lotion/bath products supply.

I got the kids each a book on Polar Animals. Not the most "fun" gift in the world, but, considering I am their teacher, I thought a book (about animals no less) was appropriate. And each one got a bag of reindeer food.

We had a Xmas party today and it was, as I expected, completely insane. Pin the nose on the snowman, snowball toss, and ornament making (which was a complete and utter failure, story for another time, or never at all).

I'm so excited to have a week and a half off! But tonight's our school staff party.

Yay for Xmas.

They're obviously not her nipples. Just fake nipples.

Also, I saw her on Graham Norton. For someone who makes animal porn, she takes herself more seriously than I would have thought.
