Thursday Ten On Friday – My Kid Had a Birthday Yesterday so My Lateness is Excused Edition

1. WHAT a day yesterday! The Princess had an awesome day which got even better when we got home and she found a box left for her by UPS… a pogo stick from my dad. (The Fed Ex box with her new helmet arrived today. Whew). We took her to a restaurant where they loudly made it known it was her birthday. Cupcakes were consumed in school. Family called. (LOTS of family called.).

2. New music this week: “Don’t Stop Believin'” from Glee. “Let Me By Myself” Three Doors Down. “I’d Hate to be You When People Find Out What this Song is About” Mayday Parade. And a bunch of random iTunes stuff because it was free.

3. Let’s back up to Glee. I missed it when it was on TV and ended up watching it on Hulu over the weekend. That is some good stuff. I’m really looking forward to that show. If you haven’t yet watched it, check it out.

4. So, the cake for The Princess’s birthday party tomorrow has an aquarium theme. I have the fish figured out – what else is aquarium-ish? It may just be fish. Who knows. What happened to just a plain ol’ cake with frosting?

5. As I’m planning my kiddo’s birthday party, I realize how badly it annoys me when people don’t RSVP. I ran into one of the moms when I was taking cupcakes to school yesterday – and she said she’d see us Saturday, and while I’m glad her daughter is coming, I thought to myself, Were ya gonna let me know?

6. Got The Princess Mario Kart for one of her birthday gifts. We are all hooked already. In fact, I was kicking everyone’s butt in it til they went and read the directions. Now, we’re all about equal in our MK skillz. Are there any tricks I need to know? Frankly, it makes me kind of dizzy, so I have a feeling it will ultimately end up like all the other Wii games – I’ll just watch the kids play.

7. Graduation Open House season is coming. It does nothing but make me feel old.

8. In the course of the chaos of the past week, I completely forgot to wish my friend CASEY a happy birthday. It was several days ago. I tried to dig myself out of the hole and email her, but I got her out of office message, so CASEY: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you and I’m sorry I missed your special day. I hope it was wonderful and that you got spoiled rotten by people with better memories than me.

9. Currently, I’m reading Denis Leary’s “Why We Suck”. This is not the book for those who are easily offended, for sure, but I’m only about forty pages in, and there’s a section on Anna Nicole Smith that had me laughing so hard I thought I was going to hyperventilate. Good stuff.

10. Am currently on “summer break” from guitar lessons for a few weeks, which stinks. I really missed going yesterday. Instead, I learned “Anything Else But You” by the Moldy Peaches (the song from Juno, in case you think you haven’t heard it). Fairly easy song which was nice.
