Thursday Ten: The OMG I CAN’T BREATHE Edition

1. It’s spring, so my allergies are INSANE. Not only are my allergies insane but it’s becoming more and more clear that Pumpkin is going to be nice and allergic to everything, just like me. Sorry, kiddo.

2. My theory DID hold on the whole American Idol/Danny not trending issue. And yes, I’m pretty proud of myself. Mildly embarassed that I even HAD a theory, but proud nonetheless, because who doesn’t like being right every now and then?

3. Last night, my BFF and I went walking. We got about five miles in before the rain started and then popped up our umbrellas and went for another mile. By the time we got through the first rainy quarter of a mile (or so), there wasn’t much rain left – only occasional sprinkles. We really lucked out. It was awesome to catch up on all that was going on in each other’s lives – also, it was fun to go out for dinner afterwards even though we were stunned to discover our powers of invisibility that made it impossible for the wait staff at the restaurant to see us. It’s pretty tough to be invisible – also: Hungry.

4. In guitar lesson today, I started learning a Counting Crows song. That makes me so UNBELIEVABLY happy.

5. I’m also still working on the Dave Matthews song, and of course today my teacher taught me a short cut that would have kept the song from kicking my butt over the past week while I was trying to learn it. Thanks. To her credit, there are several ways to indicate the chords and she tells me that people tend to find the way that works best for them. Think we’ve found my way (AFTER a painfully unproductive week, but such is life).

6. New music this week: Kris Allen’s version of “Heartless” and Eminem’s “Beautiful” has been on repeat today.

7. Last night, at about 1:50 a.m. (so, I guess that would be this morning…) there was a huge crash of thunder. I sat up in bed – it scared the hell out of me. This huge rumble of thunder. I got up and unplugged all the things I didn’t want to get struck by lightning (seriously, have lost a television and a printer to lightning. Despite surge protectors). Went back to bed. No more thunder and lightning. That was it. Just one loud boom. No more storm.

8. Two weeks from today, The Princess turns SEVEN. It blows my mind. I can’t believe my kiddo is gonna be seven.

9. Hockey night tonight. I’m SO glad the series is back at the Joe so the game will be at 7 and not TEN. This means I might actually stay awake for it. Which would be a good thing.

10. So, yesterday I was channel surfing and I stopped on Oprah (Shush). Dane Cook was on. I have seen very few Dane Cook movies and you know what? He’s just NOT that funny. Which explains why I know VERY LITTLE about Dane Cook. (P.S. I was really scrambling to come up with a tenth thing, that’s why y’all get the Dane Cook hooey. Because yeah, I needed ten.).
