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, but...you 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.

DO IT.

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 yeah...team names. Please.

Today is show and tell. - Mood:Good
Sunday November 22 20093:21:07 PM |
I'll share first...

New website that I love and you should too Grooveshark. It's basically a giant music database from which you can make playlists and then login and listen to. It's sort of like Pandora, except it lets you listen to exactly what you want to hear if you're being picky.

Pandora I still very much as well, but this is cool because I can listen to my new favorite songs until I get tired of them.


Eye Candy Alexander Skarsgard. Not only did he make me like True Blood but also Lady Gaga. This is impressive.

Magic

Your turn.

Day 8 of not smoking, and life sucks less - Mood:Good
Friday November 20 20097:49:50 PM |
“Ow, I farted.”
Best thing said by a 3 year old…EVER! Yes, a bold statement, to be sure. But one I’m willing to make with confidence.
Anyway, how are things, YT? I’ve missed you sort of. The way you miss a sock that deserts its twin. So I’m glad to have you back. Also, shout-out to Raphael. For no apparent reason.

Eucher? You heard? - Mood:Good
Sunday October 25 20092:24:48 PM |
I've recently been introduced to what is apparently a midwestern card game named Eucher (Pronounced YOOKER). You only play with the 9-A of each suit, and it's a lot like Spades.

And now I'm addicted to it. It's my new favorite thing in the universe and any time there is a gathering of four people (myself included) my immediate first thought is EUCHER! Call me crazy, but this game may well be the greatest card game ever made.

It has ousted both ERF and Sh*thead from their glory.

The only other card game that competes is Set, but I lost my set of Set cards, which is tragic. I had a dream that I found them, and woke up really disappointed to find it had only been a dream.

Why Futurama is better than Family Guy in 1800 characters or less - Mood:Good
Thursday October 22 20097:23:46 PM |
I'll start by saying Family Guy is great comedy. I love it. But, I don't love it nearly as much as I love Futurama.

For me, Futurama wins this contest because it is intelligent comedy. Family Guy is clever, but not necessarily intelligent. You don't have to be smart to get the jokes on Family Guy. Futurama is like an exclusive club, whereas Family Guy is just a big bar. Does this make me an elitist? Yes. But I'm honest about it.

Sanity is overrated, but... - Mood:Good
Wednesday October 21 20095:16:52 PM |
I'd prefer sane mothers to insane ones.

I'm teaching at a preschool that caters to a well-to-do crowd and utilizes manipulatives and technology in the classroom. It's a really fun job and I'm pleased as punch about it, BUT...

There's one mom that's trying to ruin it for me. Her daughter, we will call her Leah, is in for a hell of another 15 years with that woman.

Turanga Leela vs. Sookie Stackhouse - Mood:Good
Monday September 07 20093:38:46 PM |
Which should I be for Halloween?

Both would be relatively easy.
For Leela, I have to find a way to hide my eyes and have just one in the center of my forehead. This offers some difficulty, as none of the Halloween stores I've checked have a cyclops eye. So I'd probably have to find a way to do it myself. I'd also need to make my hair purple for the night, make a wrist jacumalator and find a cool belt and pair of boots.

Sookie would be slightly easier. I could get some fake fang bites and put them on my neck, make an iron-on of the Merlotte's symbol and iron it on a plain white t-shirt. I'd have to buy a short black skirt, and find a way to get a little black apron (though I'm sure I could borrow one from the bar I frequent). I'd still have to change my hair to blonde, need to get a slight tan, and, that's about it.

The fridge full of beer cycle. - Mood:Spent
Tuesday March 10 20098:06:46 PM |
Yesterday morning, while looking at all the leftover beer taking up space from a recent party, I decided we would have another party to get rid of it.

So last night, I called some people, and my roommate called some people, and we had a shindig to finish up our beer. Only, our shindig grew past our beer capacity, so we had to make a few B double e double r u n's.

Altogether it was a really fun shindig with a good variety of people without issues (for the most part). There was one girl there who objected to greenery of a smokable nature. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion but to expect me not to at my own party in my own house because you don't like it is a little insane.

I always do it in the bedroom too, not in front of everyone. But alas.
