Thursday Ten: It’s St Patrick’s Day Edition

1. Happy St Patrick’s Day. If that’s your thing. It’s not mine. I am pretty sure that I’m not at all Irish so I’m fairly neutral to it, so… it’s nothing for me but if green beer doesn’t gross you out, have at it.

2. Annnnnd, it’s March Madness time. I always fill out brackets – even though I really don’t know anything about any of the teams because I don’t follow basketball. Do you fill out brackets? If so, who’s your Final Four?

3. New music this week? SO MUCH. Most of it is from the “everything old is new again” which is why I’m listening to Skee-Lo’s “I Wish.” (You miss this song, don’t you? I wish I was a little bit taller….)

4. Not to be that girl who blogs about the weather all the time, but it’s supposed to be nearly 70 degrees today. NEARLY. SEVENTY. DEGREES. {yay!} Winter has lasted too long, and while this weather is just for today only, I am glad to see temps above freezing forecasted for the next few days. SEE YA, WINTER.

5. And to celebrate the coming of spring, I schedule an appointment for a spring mani/pedi. Sigh. I love pedicures. It’s funny, because I mostly think feet are gross – and don’t really want anyone touching my feet or even really looking at them, and yet… Pedicures are heavenly.

6. This morning I took the kids out for donuts and coffee (a day early, as they have no school tomorrow), and ordered my usual cappuccino. I didn’t take my first sip until I got into the car. Memo to all barristas and future barristas: the foam on a cappuccino comes from MILK, and not massive amounts of whipped cream. I pulled the car over, thinking I’d just scrape off the whipped cream and the drink would be salvageable. Nope. Once I scraped off the whipped cream, it was just a latte. Ick.

7. My mom dragged me to see the Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston flick “Just Go With It”, over the weekend. It was brutally rotten. I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie quite so horrible. Trust me. Even if you normally don’t mind Adam Sandler (and sometimes, I really think he’s hilarious!)… the movie was not a good one.

8. No guitar lessons this week because my teacher had a schedule conflict. What a bummer. I miss it tremendously. I, er… should practice. Yeah. That’s what I should be doing.

9. In an attempt to shake up my workout schedule, I added the Nike Fit Club training app (free!) to my phone. Amazing. Great workouts – varied levels of difficulty. I have now done four different workouts and feel completely exhausted (in a good way) when I’m done. Love it.

10. For next month’s book club, we’ve chosen Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. I’ve already read it – but it’s pretty good, so I’ll be reading again along with everyone else. This has been the downside to book club, I’ve found – I’m such a voracious reader that I’ve read a lot of the “popular book club” selections. Sometimes I decide to just re-read a book and not make a fuss – particularly if the book is good and I think others will really enjoy it. So – if you haven’t read it, pick it up and join me as I (re)read it.
