Writer's Block: Call Me

Do you still use a landline at home, or do you rely completely on your cell phone?

I don't have a landline because I can't afford to pay for both the cell and the land. Besides, I'm more reachable from the cell! Although the damn thing hardly picks up service in this hole of an apartment.

Wedding changes/update :)

I just wanted to give an update about our wedding plans.
So we REALLY wanted to get married at Kevin's parents home this year. However, the roof of the house sprang a leak on Christmas morning and it badly needs to be replaced, and thus will be in no condition to house a wedding, guests, food...and all the things associated with a wedding.
SO, instead, we're going to hold off for one more year on PART of it.
We are still getting married this year, on August 1 at MY parent's house, with just our immediate families because we'd already decided to get married this year and didn't want to push it back "just" another year. So, NEXT year, on August 7, we will be having the big party reception, with all our friends and extended family and whomever decides to drop by on the big day...We'll renew our vows, so there will be an actual ceremony too. The house will be in tip-top condition.

watching the crawl line...

I'm beginning to wonder if Monday snow days are going to happen for the rest of our time with the snow! Seeing as it's the second Monday in a row that there's no school!

I feel two ways about snow days...it's awesome to have a day off and sleep in!! (After checking the crawl line of course to be SURE that school is canceled...)
But then there's the part about getting behind at school. My kids have speeches due on Wednesday... I think they should be ready to hand them in, but we'll see. I always have stragglers. I doubt this speech will be an exception even though they all know they don't HAVE to present theirs, and that writing this is like any other 5-paragraph essay. I think I'm going to make the speeches still due on Wednesday because they'll have covered enough material to have completed it. AND those who WANT to present their speeches (for an extra 10 points on their quiz grade, which they all know of) will have to hand them in, be graded, make their corrections and PRACTICE so they're READY!!

The worst part, I think (so far) about teaching - grading. I want to give all A's but we all know that's not possible. And it's not fair! Not fair to the kids who actually earned it, and not fair to the kids who didn't, who need room for improvement in areas that they really didn't do well on.

I'm going back to bed...I'll deal with grading later.
Now that I've finally had the chance to watch it...

Heroes: wtf???? Taking them away in a plane and it crashes? Why am I thinking Lost... I hope not.
It'd better be more Heroes related...

Was too damn sick to watch it Monday night. At 3 am my temp was 102.8. At 5 I took a cool shower because I could barely sleep. I haven't been to school all week. It's been fun...
Starting over reading the Twilight series because I'm a nutjob. :P

Meanwhile, Kevin gets the same damn thing (though he hasn't been through the fever bout...) and he goes skiing. Wonder who's the nutjob now.


silly fun stuff

Ok, I missed the memo...
What is Cyber Monday????

I must be completely out of the loop.
My inbox is flooded with deals from stores promoting this Cyber Monday, that there's deals good for ONLY today...and I'm just confused. Not to mention Ill and missing a day of being at the Job Corps. Today is a day of sleep-all-day-ness.

First time I watched this, I was in STITCHES on the floor. It was a LITERAL ROFL. <3!!!

Feed The Cat


My favorite song. Performed by David Archuita (???) Archuleta on American Idol.
Written by Robbie Williams and some guy named Guy, and originally performed by Robbie.

I don't follow American Idol in the least, but can anyone tell me... Did this guy win the show?! He SO should have, just on the basis of this song. He put an amazing spin on the best song EVER and it had me all in goosebumps. I agree with the guy sitting to Paula Abdul's left (Simon?), IF I were being picky, that the end was better than the beginning.

Overall, awesome. LOVE. (tattoo..)

yay another meme!!!

(How is "meme" pronounced? "Mem?" "Meem?" Wondering that for a while.)

I commented on aguynamedgoo's meme, who gave me D! :)

1. The Doctor. (from Doctor Who)
Well, duh. He's The Doctor! Doctor what? Just The Doctor. Doctor of what? Just The Doctor. He's awesome. He can't die. He has two hearts. <3 The Doctor!! Is there more to say? :P I think "He's awesome" is sufficient :D

2. Daleks. Yes, yes, another Doctor Who answer. I can't help it.
I want one. Of my very own. They fly. And can wear aprons...

3. D.L. Hawkins. From Heroes. I just had to have at least one for Heroes.
I don't know. I was trying to think of D names. He's not as exciting as he *could* be.

4. Dylan Sanders. Yeah, that's right, the Charlie's Angels chick from the movies.
She kicks ass. And played by Drew Barrymore, who is just awesome in pretty much every way.

5. Daddy. (from The Little Mermaid)
What a jerk. Or at least typical dad. Gotta love Disney for letting everything turn out all happy in the end anyways. *Typical* *Yuck* lol. Tried looking for a non-Disney version of The Little Mermaid, though this one does have a nostalgic effect on me. :) Any help on finding a non-Disney version?

1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.



Interesting that when I list my current location as "George St," google comes up with a street somewhere in or near Chicago. I do not reside in Chicago lol.
