Thursday Ten: Just a Drop of Water in the Endless Sea

1. Yes, still working on “Dust in the Wind”. I actually had to YouTube it last week because I’m just not THAT familiar with the song. For others of you who may be to embarrassed to admit you don’t know the song either… Here ya go. Actually, I’ve improved a lot from last year – but you’ll listen and the guitar part? That’s WAY speedier than I play. Just so ya know.

2. This morning when I dropped off Pumpkin at school, the teacher handed me a paper saying that I owed a balance of sixty-some bucks. HUH? I went home, read the transactions listed and realized that they missed crediting a payment to our account (They didn’t miss cashing the check, however – that cleared a week ago). Makes me wonder how many people just pay without doing the research. So, whew – but yeah – just goes to show, it does pay to not just take someone’s word for it and to check your records to see if you have the right information.

3. It’s 3:30 in the afternoon which means it’s just the right time for chocolate milk. I don’t know why. I hate store bought chocolate milk – it’s too thick. I just made a glass with skim milk and sugar-free Hershey’s syrup. Yeah, I’m waiting for the inevitable comment that perhaps I’m doing it wrong.

4. New music this week: More stuff from Glee. Two Eddie Vedder songs from the movie “Into The Wild.” Not a whole lot of new music – I keep forgetting, actually, to buy new stuff.

5. Let’s go back to GLEE, shall we? Seriously, the funniest thing I’ve seen on television for awhile. I’m definitely hooked, and I think Mr Scheuster is adorable. Especially when dancing. The 90s flashbacks with Color Me Badd and Bell BivDeVoe were major earworms last night though. Not that that’s entirely a bad thing.

6. PROJECT RUNWAY NIGHT. I’m undecided what I think of the switch to Lifetime – it’s hard to tell because they’ve also switched to Los Angeles versus NYC, and that’s a whole ‘nother vibe change there, as well. Tonight’s episode is supposed to be some big deal – and I won’t even care if I watch and find out it’s not really a big deal because I love it that much (Oh shush. Some of you with your “Mad Men” – which I’ve never seen – same kind of fascination – just a different outlet for your fanatical television love). Tim Gunn makes me supremely happy – in a dapper, “make it work” kinda way.

7. I recently went on a Douglas Coupland book-reading frenzy. I hadn’t read any of his stuff in awhile and was immediately reminded why I’d always enjoyed it. Some of his writing is LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY. Check him out.

8. My sister’s bachelorette party is Saturday. I’m not too involved in the planning and more than a little nervous about the agenda of the evening. Especially because I can’t get any word on what the actual agenda IS. Pro: I’m not planning it, less stress. Con: I’m not planning it, less control.

9. Actual conversation:
Mom: You’re an Obama fan, right?
Me: I support Obama, yes.
Mom: Then answer this for me, would ya? Did he really say Kanye West was a jackass?
Me: Yes, he did.
Mom: Oh GOOD! I finally agree with him on something.


10. “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” comes out this weekend. I don’t think I’ve ever even read the book, but I’m debating taking my kids. It looks cute-ish. I like going to the movies, though. May be a nice way to decompress after Saturday’s bachelorette party stress.

  1. I love “Glee” too. The coach (Jane Lynch)is my favorite character. She cracks me up. lol

    Have fun at your sister’s party on Saturday! 🙂

  2. The movie was excellent (saw it in 2D – didn’t wanna pay for 3D). Isaiah and cousins laughed their tails off. Your girls would love the book. A must read for little kids.

    Skinny skim lowfat nonfat chocolate milk? Kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it? 🙂 Elijah loves chocolate milk. We use 1% and regular Hershey’s syrup. Indulge me and just try it once. There’s a happy medium between nonfat choc milk and the store bought thick stuff (which I agree, is way too thick).
