More Music to Share With You...

Hey you guys. I hope you've been having a great weekend. I stuck to my homework schedule today and got done what I had planned. Yippee.

Now I'm hanging out with John while he has to do some work tonight. It's been a working day for us for sure. That's why we went out and had some fun last night because we knew today we would be contributing to society all day long.

I thought I'd share another one of my current favorites with you. This group is called A Fine Frenzy and the song is Come on Come Out. I LOVE it. If you would like to watch a video for it click here.


It's coming along quite nicely.

Well, I have three minutes until I start my day of homework. I've been putting it off ever since I woke up this morning but I can't do it any longer.

Wish me luck.

Crazy Heart

Have you seen it? I have. John and I watched it tonight and it's really good. It made me realize two things. One: I love Jeff Bridges. I don't know why he doesn't have more movies where he's the main character. He can totally carry a movie on his own.

Two: Our kitchen has been missing egg art. This painting isn't as cool as the one in Maggie Gyllenhaal's kitchen in the movie but it gives you the idea.

If you happen to come across a super cool and economically friendly painting of an egg please let me know. I'm in the market for one.

Shout Out to my peeps...

Hey you guys! I hope your week has been going really really well. Question of the day: Should I be concerned that I have a student who is always calling me Mr. M? I tell him, "Sweetie, Mr. M is my husband."

Sleepwalking....kind of

At the end of the day I was walking out to my classroom and nobody was around so I closed my eyes and continued to walk. I actually felt like I could go to sleep...while walking. So I opened my eyes. All I can say is at least I wasn't driving.

Have a great weekend.

Hello, how ya doing?

That's what I think this picture is saying. So, how are you doing?

If you think my face looks weird in this picture it's because I'm not wearing any makeup...none at all. That's why you can barely see my eyebrows. Yep, that means I usually darken them.

Before we went to Mary Poppins on Sunday I had gotten a little carried away with the darkening. I looked like I was going to be in the show. John agreed. Pictures not included.

I hope your week is going well. Mine is going well but it's super busy. I guess there's nothing wrong with a little business.

I'm getting so excited for this weekend. On Sunday (Sweetheart's Day) John and I are going on a date to see Mary Poppins. I can't wait. The tickets were a Christmas present. What a sweet guy.

Last Week's Highlights

  • Went back to work after almost a full week off. That left me just a tad bit tired.
  • I'm now trying to catch up on my class work. I'm trying not to freak out about it. So far, so good.
  • I took the advice of my brother in law and gave Community another chance. I laughed so much. Great, now I have six weekly shows to watch and no extra time.
  • Had my post appointment about Lester. He is gone now but he was not what we thought he was. Let's just say that he was never planning on leaving. He was going to stay forever and become a bigger and bigger pain.
  • Do you ever hear a song on a movie, commercial or tv show and like it so much that you google it so you can find out who it's by? Me too. My latest one is Dream by Priscilla Ahn. I had on Bride Wars (not so good) and during the wedding scene I heard this lovely song and immediately whipped out my laptop.
Have a listen.

Just Mustard

Tonight I picked us up some Subway sandwiches and ordered myself a Veggie delite. I haven't had one of those for awhile. John asked me if I just got mustard again. Very funny Johnny. It actually is a funny story.

I haven't been a vegetarian for three or four years now but I was one for almost four years. The first time I went to Subway as a vegetarian I made the mistake of going through the drive thru instead of going in.

I told the lady at the drive thru that I wanted a veggie delight. Here's the rest of our conversation:

Lady: What would you like on it?

Me: Mustard.

Lady: Just mustard?

Me: Yes.

I drive up to the window and there's a second lady with the one who took my order.

Second lady: You just want mustard on your sandwich?

Me: Yes.

Second lady: Just mustard? Nothing else?

Me: Yes....just mustard.

Second lady: Ok.

While the sandwich artists left the window to get our order John and I had our own conversation.

John: I think you're going to get a mustard sandwich.

Me: What? No. I ordered a veggie delite. There's going to be veggies on it.

John: I don't think so.

We got our sandwiches and as we were driving off John opened the wrapper of my mustard sandwich, no veggies. I was too embarrassed to go back.

Here's my defense: If I ordered a turkey sandwich I wouldn't have to specify that I wanted turkey on it when asked, "What would you like on your sandwich?"

Also, the sandwich artists could have said, "So you don't want any veggies?" I would then have known that on my veggie delite I needed to specify exactly which vegetables I wanted.

To answer John's question from before, tonight I actually had vegetables on my sandwich. Mustard was able to be a condiment and not the main ingredient.
