Olba`s Oil is my new best friend. - Mood:Good
Tuesday January 18 201110:09:40 PM |
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.

No Animals - Mood:Good
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?

I`m smoking a rose... - Mood:Good
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.

I`m seeing penguins everywhere! - Mood:Good
Tuesday December 14 201010:57:31 PM |
Is there something wrong with me? What does this MEAN?

Last night, after drinking about half a bottle of wine, I looked over where my boyfriend's shoes were stacked weirdly. And for a split second, I swear they looked just like a penguin! I did a double take and it went away and they were just shoes again.

Then just now, I'm looking at a thread, and Kung's avy for a second looks JUST LIKE A PENGUIN! Then it went away.

Penguins? Chill it out.

"Did you ever notice how there`s no baby pigeons?" - Mood:Good
Sunday December 12 20109:14:07 PM |
My roommate asked me this about five minutes ago.

Then theorized that all pigeons we see are babies and there are bigger adult pigeons hiding elsewhere.

In all seriousness.

He followed it with, "Just like you never see the sun and the moon at the same time."

This is the same man who thought a good trivia question would be, "What are the primary colors?" I then explained that we taught that in preschool and almost everyone with a working brain knew them.

Ah. He makes me laugh when he doesn't make me cringe.

Pictures posted very soon.

I can't tell you how excited I was about this though. I went a little picture crazy, because, well, it's a really fun and amazing present.

My boyfriend and I also made a video, but I don't know how to post a video, so I won't.

Anyway...Thank you thank you thank you! I it! And Merry Christmas!

Damn it feels good to beat Bowser and beat this game! Although I guess there's a world 9 of the hardest f*cking imaginable levels ever?

There's that to look forward to.

Also, why are we riding around in Bowser hot air balloons?

So yeah. Hooray.

Time for a well deserved smoke in the freezing cold.

Can you dispute the fact that Ninja Warrior is the best show on television? - Mood:Good
Friday December 03 20102:53:39 PM |
At least of what's currently on air.

NINJA WARRIOR! I would love to be on that show. If I were, you know, skilled.

I love Fridays because I finish work at 12:45, leaving me plenty of time to gather materials to do lessons over the weekend, get home, and relax. It's almost like having a third day off. Almost.

School was pretty good today. We were running way behind but somehow managed to get everything in due to my amazing assistant. Looking back, it's weird to think I didn't care for her much at the start of the year. Now I think she's marvelous.

Lesson planning sucks though, because the curriculum coordinator we used to have left and the school's director has taken over the planning. The previous woman would be so precise and ensure everything was targeted to your students' abilities. It's not a big deal, but it sucks more than nothing does.

I got back from Columbia this morning. Thanksgiving was better than expected, I guess.

Dad was sick. My brother helped me shop for and cook Thanksgiving. Luckily, we had no turkey to deal with, as Dad got a free ham from work. We made fresh peas with cream, mac and cheese, corn with cream cheese and jalapenos, roasted potatoes and peppers, and a gorgonzola salad that really rocked. I'm making it again for dinner tonight (whenever that might be).

My brother's g/f came after we had lunch. Just as I was finishing my nap. I really don't care for her. I guess God only gives so much talent and awesomeness to each person, and she got so much artistic talent and beauty that she missed out on personality altogether.

My brother's a different person when she's around and that's annoying too.

It's good to be back where it isn't cold at all.

It's been an ok birthday.

It's my first since my mom passed away. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. She's been on my mind all day and I've been teetering between tears and smiles.

One of my preschool students brought me a card with a Cheesecake Factory giftcard in it.

I invited some friends over, but they're off means they won't get here until about 11. And now I'm tired, from crying and having the onset of a cold, and I really just want to go to bed.

My boyfriend and I went to see The Social Network tonight and then went to dinner at my favorite restaurant. Both of those things were very nice.

He got me an iPod nano for my birthday. I've never ever owned an MP3 player so I'm stepping into new territory.

I feel so old!

This morning at circle time we had a discussion on where we'd most like to travel to, and one of my kids said "Gotham City, so I could meet Batman".

I'm glad the week's over. It was my first back after the month I took off to go home and take care of my mom/dad. It was great being around the kids, they're such joyful lights, but the work aspect was overwhelming at first. By Wednesday I was back in the swing of things though.

I've got a lot to catch up on this weekend between lesson plans and preparation for conferences. Hooray.

Today was a lot of fun though. I get off early on Fridays, and came home and had lunch with my boyfriend. Then we went to the park and dropped off three big bins worth of recycling and played on one of the best playgrounds in town...

Cutting is all I ever do. - Mood:Good
Monday November 01 201010:01:17 PM |
Not the emo kind.

This is the life of a preschool teacher.

I have about 40 pages to cut out and turn into passport books. Luckily, I have Netflix on wii and apparently a lot of episodes of Parks and Recreation to catch up on that somehow I missed when they aired. And a brewing pot of coffee.

Started back to work today after a really long absence. It was good and bad. The kids were all hugs and told me how much they missed me. The parents and other teachers were all sympathetic which is better than being apathetic but at the same time, it's a constant reminder and it's tough.

Anyway. The main point is, a preschool teacher's life is cutting.

My stomach really hurts. Like cramps.

I had sex yesterday for the first time in almost a month. And I think his penis stabbed me!

I am quitting smoking again. Which means I started smoking again. Monday is quit day.

I really want to be Leela for Halloween. When my boyfriend gets up I'm gonna go to a hardware store and see if I can find something to make an eye with. I don't have anywhere to go for Halloween. But I want to be Leela anyway.

I heard about hunch on the radio the other day. Have you heard about it?
It's pretty cool.

You answer 20 or more questions and it develops a taste profile based on your responses. Then it can recommend movies, books, beer, lamps, basically anything, based on your preferences.

I'm having a lot of fun with it as my new time waster.

Although I really shouldn't be wasting much time.

My mom was diagnosed with cancer two months ago. Since then, she's done chemo and radiation therapy, but as of yesterday, she's done with both as they're not working. The cancer is spreading so fast and aggressively. The doctors don't know how much time she has left, but they don't believe it's much.
