I did two entries yesterday, so if you missed the second one scroll on down. :-)
I have to say thanks to Miss Robyn who linked to me yesterday. I now have a few more readers on my notify list which makes me feel the need to write a little better... but also really happy! I saw my visitor stats go through the roof yesterday and man, that's a nice feeling.
I have a few things to say about the VMA's last night. I enjoyed the opening act with Britney, Christina and Madonna... I think it would have been better if Madonna had finished off 'Like a Virgin' before heading into 'Hollywood' but whatever. I dug the fact that once Madonna was on stage, Britney and Christina were basically no more than dancers, but dude how wierd is Britney's voice? Irritating man. Chris Rock was killing me; particularly when he said he didn't think Ashton was in love with Demi; but was just punking Bruce Willis. Such an obvious joke; yet that's the first time I've heard it. The rest sort of blends together... I'm not as obsessed about the show as I was last year.
So, I may have mentioned before that lately I am regressing to childhood by being obsessed with coloring books... yeah. I know. I even went on ebay on bought a few. You can't find normal fucking coloring books in the stores anymore. They're all activity books with gay little puzzles and word finds and such. I just want plain coloring books. I usually break em out when we are watching a movie (because I am incapable of just sitting and watching the movie... theaters are almost torturous at times for me.) The other night Aaron got home early; around 9:30 or so. There I am sitting on the couch, watching Felicity and coloring in my Disney Princesses color book. Oh yeah, and I had some green mud mask on my face in various 'troublesome' spots. I felt so attractive and grown up, let me tell ya. It's a wonder he doesn't run screaming sometimes. :-D
The other night I picked up some of those Tangerine Sours by Altoids. They are kind of like Sour Patch Kids, but are a hard candy. The tangerine ones are good; they also have Citrus Sours... and those taste like ass, but I digress. Anyway, Aaron and I were sitting there and I remembered they were in my purse so I grabbed the can and said "here I want you to try one of these." Aaron being the sweet, trusting guy he is didn't even question what they were and popped one in his mouth. I wish I had thought to have the camera ready... It was absolutely the best sour face ever. Better than when you give a baby a pickle. He jumped a little upon impact. Heh, I think his eyes watered too. When his mouth unpuckered enough to speak I believe his exact words were "What the fuck is this?" I of course was too busy laughing like a damn hyena to get the words out. finally when I could breathe I said "Chew it up! Chew it up! They get sweet when you chew em!" but in the commotion he had accidentally swallowed it whole. Heh... I giggle now as I write it. I tried to get him to try another one the next day but he was a no go.
Man. Labor Day Weekend. This year has sped by so fucking fast. 8 paydays till Christmas. That makes me a little nervous. But better than that 119 days till we leave for NYC!!!! Woohoo! As for the weekend we don't have any big plans. Aaron has to work all day tomorrow; with a break for a few hours around 2... then probably won't be home till close to 9pm. I will probably go down and meet him at work and maybe we'll do the Pike Place Market or something. He has to work Sunday afternoon as well, but we have Monday totally free. We've been kicking around several ideas but have come up with nothing concrete. I used to love weekends where I could veg out all weekend if I wanted to; and I still kinda do. But our cable company sucks some major ass and we don't get most of the channels I used to watch. On the upside it gives me plenty of time to sit and soak in Felicity goodness. I am totally hooked on that show. How sad is that? I usually miss the boat the first time on anything that's popular. Give me a good year or more after it hits the big time, THEN I'll show some interest. So yeah; not much is going on here... hope you have a great weekend!
THE FRIDAY FIVE
1. Are you going to school this year?
Yeah, I start in less than a month. I'm kind of excited to get the ball rolling, I WANT TO JUST BE DONE!!!:-)
2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?
I graduated in 1995 from high school, and have attended community college off and on since then; last winter I became a full time student. I am under the pressure of loans so I can't NOT be a full time student ... this is it baby. They got me right where they want me. Oh, and I attend Bellevue Community College; but mainly I do online courses. But this fall I'll be attending a math class in the morning. Oy. I'll have to be in Bellevue (a good half hour drive in non rush hour... ) by 7:15am every morning.
3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?
I love psychology and other classes where you get involved in discussions.
4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?
I fucking hate philosophy and math.
5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?
Mr. Howard; my choir teacher from 9th to 12th grades. He was also my history teacher, junior year and the football coach (I was a manager). He was more than a teacher; meaning he was kind of like a mentor/grandfatherly figure. He had a unique relationship with his students... somehow managed to get the biggest guys on the football team to come sing latin Bible songs. And made them take it somewhat seriously. Plus he was a hoot, and would occasionally make the funniest remarks. I miss his classes.
How could you not love a little face like that, with cute little baby paws like that, and the pinkest little nosey this side... oh sorry, got a little carried away there.
