It’s the quirks in life that make me smile

I'm at home today, as it is Cesar Chavez day here in California. The sun is shining, and it's a lovely 75 degrees outside. That being said, I'm inside writing (well attempting to) my paper that is due Monday. I've placed my desk in the window so I can look out on the backyard. For most of the morning, Daisy has been at my side, inside. I decided that Daisy would be outside if she had a blanket to lay on. The only reason she was inside was because she likes to lay on the carpet. So, I put … [Read more...]

Ugg.  Grad School

I turned in midterm number two yesterday. At least this one didn't take me 16+ hours to complete like the first one did. This midterm required me to watch an educational television program and answer 10 questions about it. I think I watched the same episode of Knitty Gritty 10 times. Granted I love Knitty Gritty, but I tell you what, I think I know the pattern by heart now. Actually, I'm thinking of sending the materials to make the sweater to one of my secret pals. I've seen pictures of … [Read more...]

Don’t Super Size me, really… continued

You know what? They haven't found the body that goes with the finger yet. I bet this will be a CSI episode before you know it. I'm thinking foul play. I'm thinking someone thought they could get away with something. I'm thinking... Glad it's not me. … [Read more...]

Don’t Super Size me, really.

I've been unable to eat McDonald's since I watched Super Size Me. Really. I haven't. Even when Reese suggested the Cadbury Mini Egg McFlurry. I don't even eat at the Burger King on campus. I don't even want to eat at Wendy's anymore (and I love the frosty!). Now that a woman found a finger in her chili. And, she found it at MY local Wendy's. The one I drive by twice a day on my way to work. God, if I didn't have enough reason to cook... I sure do now. … [Read more...]

It is good to be a woman:

My mom forwarded this to me. It's kinda cute. It is good to be a woman: 1. We got off the Titanic first. 2. We can scare male bosses with the mysterious gynecological disorder excuses. 3. Taxis stop for us. 4. We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing. 5. No fashion faux pas we make, could ever rival the Speedo. 6. We don't have to pass gas to amuse ourselves. 7. If we forget to shave, no one has to know. 8. We can congratulate our teammate without ever touching her rear … [Read more...]


I've been putting on movies, first The Girl with the Pearl Earring, then Cold Mountain. During Cold Mountain, Daisy started barking. It was really cute. She was convinced there was something going on. Not. She's on drugs. The same drugs that are getting her up at 2:30 am every morning to get a drink, and at 4 to go potty. I think my Do is getting old. No more water after 10. I can't handle this getting up with her crap. But, I did finish one question of my midterm and I have the … [Read more...]

One more thing…

San Mateo County wasted no time moving Scott Peterson to San Quentin. If justice was ever served in a case, it certainly was in this one. Unfortunately, it's going to be a long time before the state uses the needle. If anyone deserves it, this man does. … [Read more...]

St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

This morning I got to work and found this lovely email in my inbox talking about the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin. They said that I could "join the party" and watch the parade right here in sunny California. So, I did. And I enjoyed every minute of it. Happy St. Patrick's Day! … [Read more...]

Damn it.

How can I continue procrastinating if Lost is a re-run again this week... Oh well, lucky for me Daisy is chasing a fly tonight, so she is perky. I guess I could just watch her. … [Read more...]

Do you know how much I don’t want to do my mid-term?

I'm watching "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton." That's how much. Damn. I need motivation. Daisy lying there on the floor relaxing isn't helping. She could at least play or something. … [Read more...]
