Now that I have your attention, some random thoughts from yours truly.
Note: I don't actually want snow right now . . . but it would be so nice if spring and autumn lasted as long as summer and winter did!
~ Don't get the title? You CLEARLY haven't been to my facebook page recently. Shame on you. Go now.
~ I know I'm trying to pay attention and understand politics more and stuff - but I am utterly sick of and bored with the whole presidential election thing and have been for a few months now. Doesn't really bode well, does it? Is this whole "start campaigning the day after the last election" thing normal? Right now I can't think of one good reason to keep paying attention.
~ I am feeling really blogged out right now. After that whole 30-day marathon I feel like I have nothing left to say. So . . . anything you want to know? Crazy stories you think I should share with everybody? Help me out here.
~ We really need to invest in some jumper cables. I went out to go grocery shopping this morning and . . . well, I'm really hoping the battery is just drained like it sounds like it is. As soon as our neighbor gets back with their cables we're going to give it a try. I've been thinking about it and I'm guessing that after somewhat frantically run errands yesterday I didn't close the door all the way . . . so the interior light was on all day but nobody could tell, blah, blah, blah - you all know how this story goes. I'd be really mad if it wasn't (probably) totally my fault. And I guess if it isn't I'll have something to blog about! (wow . . . when that's your silver lining . . . that's gotta be a bad sign . . . )
~ I knew monkeys moved fast. I did not know they could move that fast, if you catch my drift. (and if you don't . . . facebook! *cough*Deb*cough*)
~ I've lost about ten pounds this summer. Probably not going to make the goal I had for the end of this month, but I'm doing better than I did last summer. In fact I might even try to keep up the working out thing during the school year this time around. Because I'm feeling just that awesome. :-)
~ The wallaby at the zoo? GONE!!!!! And replaced by a bunch of birds - LAME!!!! Luke and I both consider this slightly epically tragic, especially since the zoo shirt Luke got back in May has a wallaby on it. We're thinking he must have gotten deported over all the mushrooms he was growing, lol.
~ I sometimes find myself wondering what housewives did in the 50s if they didn't have kids. The ones who had washers and dryers and fridges so they didn't have to spend all day cooking and cleaning. I have the internet, tv, a wii, a library card, and a cross-stitching hobby and I still find myself getting bored. How on earth did they entertain themselves home alone all day?!?!
~ Speaking of, I still get a little giddy at having a washer and dryer now. It's so awesome not having to worry about having enough quarters or if someone will come behind you and toss your clothes out if you don't get back to them fast enough. (actually happened to me once, ages ago.)
~ It's time once again to read Tuck Everlasting. It's so amazing how such a short book (a novella, really, not a novel) can say so much and make me love it even more every time I read it. I may be a bookworm, and I may love a lot of books, but there aren't many like that. At all.
~ I really need to hop on to myspace sometime and move all my bog posts from there to somewhere more convenient.
Update: Long story short, looks like we're getting a new alternator. Bad news: about $130. Good news: my dad's doing it and he takes cookies as payment for labor. (well, that's not the payment he asked for, but I told him that if he and mom don't stop asking for that they'll never get it.)
P. ost S. cript
Marching band + the bed intruder song = awesome sauce. I just wish they'd had a color guard because that is a song with a lot of potential for a fun routine. (also: the longer version I saw originally was better than the performance version. wonder why they changed it.)
