pros and cons

Really, living along is awesome.

Walking around in my undewear? Check.

Selecting what to watch on tv every night? Check.

Eathing whatever I feel like? Check.

Not doing laundry for week and buying new clothes instead? Double check.

But having someone to wish goodnight? ...

i <3 7th graders

Me: OK, guys...who can tell me a form of alliteration everyone knows?

Mark: Ooh! Ooh! Me! Me!

Me: Yes, Mark, go ahead.

Mark: Tongue Twisters!!!

Me: Great! Who can say a tongue twister?

(Kids babble off tongue twisters...)

Mark: Ooh! Ooh! Ms. L! Ms. L!!!

Me: Yes, Mark?

Mark: I made up my own tongue twister. It's 'She Shot the City Sheriff'. Try it.

Jessie: I can do that. She shot the shitty sheriff.

Christie: Oh my gosh! You just said shitty!

Ryan: You said it, too!

Christie: What did I say?

Jessie: We said shitty? Ahh! I didn't mean to say it! I said it twice! Oh my god!

Rosalia: I don't get it, what's so hard about saying 'She shot the shitty sheriff'?

Everyone: Ahh! You said it! You said it!!!

Me: Stop! Stop saying shi---I mean, stop saying that tongue twister!!!!

Hee hee hee.

Note to self:

Do not ever volunteer to do something that will involve working with parents, even if it means a free trip to Australia.

beam me up, scotty

Oh. My. God.

I am such a Trekkie.

Needless to say, I saw Star Trek last weekend. I loved it. LOVED IT! I really didn't expect to like it so much. I mean, let's just say science fiction and blowing things up and battle scenes and aliens aren't generally on my list.

However, Star Trek met my needs in a way I never expected. Hence, my REASONS TO LOVE STAR TREK list.

1. Catch Phrases - Now, I know ST has been around for some time, but this movie introduced to so many new awesome phrases to work into my daily jargon. For example, from now I no longer have to resort to lame-o messages in student yearbooks. I will simply write, "Live Long and Prosper" instead.

2. Scorching Hot Dudes - To start, there is the dreamy Captain Kirk. Oh, hello Blue Eyes. (Apparently this dream boat is on Lost, but that's not trashy reality tv, so I was clueless to his beautious existence prior to this film.) Next, we've handsome devil in Dr. Spock. So, he's got a twist on the bowl cut and a set of pointy ears, but his tortured soul and sultry eyes were enough to make me swoon.

3. Confusing Plot Lines - It's like the part in Harry Potter when Hermoine had to use her necklace (aka the time turner) to go back in time to save Harry and Buckbeak; also, she had to prove that it wasn't Harry's dad back from the dead, but rather a vision of himself casting his patronus that takes the shape of a stag. You'd really have to be a fan to understand.

4. Freaks - It totally makes you feel better about loving something if you can bond with others. I might be a little late to join the Trekki movement, but something tells me the will welcome me with open arms (unless they are Klingons).

I'd like to add more to this list, but damnit man, I'm only human.

Can't wait to see it again!

I found Piggy!!!

He was tucked inside the corner of a fitted sheet in my linen closet! I swear I looked there, but when I went to change the sheets on my bed yesterday, there he was, just staring up at me as if to say, "It's about time you changed your sheets, you filthy woman."

Oh, yay! yay! yay!

simple as 1-2-3

Use each letter of the alphabet to name an adjective about yourself:

I am:

Apocalyptic when I don't eat enough carbs
Bored when I get home from work
Creative when I'm in the mood
Ditzy about 75% of the time
Energetic with the right people
Forgetful when it comes to due dates
Grateful for my friends and family
Hot hottie hot in my new brown bikini
Intensly passionate about my political views
Jealous when I'm dating someone
Klutzy, hence my glorious non-sports career
Listless on a Friday night
Mammoth booty is in my possession
Nutritious only about 4 days out of each month
Omnipotent over nothing, sadly
Possessive over my friends
Quizzical in nature
Rough around the edges
Sarcastic, sarcastic, no really, sarcastic
Tenacious in my pursuit of happiness
Ubiquitous in my travels
Voluminous hair when the time is right
Wary of strangers
Young at heart but not in mind
Zesty when served in the right salad.

Fun! I tag everyone. Love, WG
