I have not forgotten about you.

I am amazed that the last time I posted was at the end of November. There is really no rhyme or reason to it. It just happened. How am I doing you ask? I have been better. Right now I feel like I am living in a snow globe and someone has just shaken it. I am dealing with how things are falling down, and some of it is less than stellar. In some cases I know I need to put on my big girl panties and deal with it.

I am happy that the weather has changed for the better. I really enjoy getting out into to the sun. It helps my mood alot. Plus with it not snowing I am able to get out and walk again. Woohoo. There is no 1/2 marathon to do, but I need to do get out and exercise. There are so many people I know who have some sort of routine and they look great. I would like to do it too, so I don't feel so dumpy.

I am supposed to be playing Grandia, but that hasn't happened in awhile. I have lost momentum. Andy and I have been playing things together like the new Wallace and Gromit series from Tell Tale Games, and Tales of Vesperia so I haven't missed Grandia. I am also looking forward to the new Monkey Island game. I really liked the earlier games.

In other news I was able to go to Washington D.C. for the first time. It was for a work conference, but at least I got out and saw some of the sights. Some day I would like to go back and spend more time there. There were two downsides to the trip though: Everything was really quite expensive and I managed to faint at the opening reception of the conference. Not good at all.

I am now in the countdown to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I have seen the last couple of trailers and the movie looks really good. This may be the second movie of the series that I won't see at the midnight showing. Andy is going to be out of town and I don't want to deal with the craziness by myself. He said that he is over the whole series anyway. Once the last book came out that was it for him. I, on the other hand, am still excited about it.

I think that is it for now. I hope everyone is well and having a great weekend!

End of the Line

It is the end of the month and the end of the NaBlopomo. I am glad that it is over and now I can go back to the sporadic posting that I am used to. It is definately more my style. Anyway, here is my conundrum for today. I have had the song Human by the Killers stuck in my head for the past few days, but I have no idea what the chorus means. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Here it is for a reference:

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

I guess I am just stuck on the are we human or are we dancer part.

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

(no subject)

Today was Thanksgiving Part Deux. I think I am done eating for awhile. I am thankful that my pants did not explode after lunch today. It would have been embarrassing.

It was also a day of sadness and happiness. It was sad that we took Andy's convertible to his parents house to store it for the winter. It was happy for me because that means I get a parking space in the garage. On the flip side it is sad because that means winter is coming. Blah! Yet it is good to know that I don't have to scrape my car in the morning. It is just a yoyo of emotions.

Only 2 more days

We survived Thanksgiving, Part I. Travelled to Milwaukee to see my folks. Stayed for about 5 hours and then came home. I am amused that even though I am older now, my parents still tell me to call them to let them know I made it home o.k.

Today was spent being a slacker. Andy and I did a marathon of Babylon 5. We stopped for meals and whatnot, but most of it was spent in front of the monitor. I like the show, but at the same time it is pretty depressing.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, Part Deux at Andy's parents house. His mom has decided to forgo the usual turkey dinner for something else. That should be interesting. It may blow a hole into the space time continuum.

Fowl humor!

Just think - if the Indians had given
The Pilgrim fathers a donkey instead of a turkey,
we all would be having a piece of ass for thanksgiving.

Hope every one had a great Thanksgiving day!

Fascinating

Taken from home page...

German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head?

For me any song has the potential if I only have a part of it stuck and it loops. The other day it was a Kool and the Gang song. Before that it was a song from the soundtrack Once. I guess that is a problem when you have eclectic music tastes.

The descent into madness

I was out tonight trying to pick up some things for Turkey Day. My first stop was Kohl's. As I was walking in I saw that on Black Friday they are going to open at 4:00 a.m. Holy Crap! Why would anyone want to get there that early just to buy a sweater that is going to cost $5 cheaper? Those people are crazy. The sad thing is with all of the stuff they had there I couldn't really find anything I wanted.

I proceeded to go to the grocery store because I had to pick up stuff for my dish to pass for Turkey day. I figured I would go tonight because tomorrow would be hellacious. I was incorrect. It was a crapfest. Tons of people and apparently everyone is making the same dish I am because I got the last bag of vegetables. In case you are wondering, I am not making green bean casserole. At least I have the stuff so I can enjoy anime night.

Now I am at home trying to figure out ways to get a certain part of my life out of a rut. Unfortunately most of it is dependent on people who aren't me. I hate when that happens. I think I may have to resort to some sort of voodoo.

I believe the children are our future....d'oh!

My sister, brother in law and I made an unintentional error with regards to my niece's vocabulary. We use the standard Bushism of strategery in our conversations. My niece thought it was an actual word. She did not realize that it was strategy. Oops! I suppose it could be much worse.

Hmm....not much else to write about. A suggestion was made to tell some of Andy's deep dark secrets. Here is one: He hates mustard. He also hates cold tomatoes. If you have more specific questions, please let me know.

meh

There is nothing to see or read here. Just move along. I am sure there will be something more entertaining tomorrow.
