They Might be Giants

Yeah! I'm going to see They Might be Giants tomorrow night.

The unfortunate part is that I have a paper to complete by 11:59 pm as well.

Anyone know how to insert footnotes?

I need to remember this

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Kicking My Butt

Yes... I am a BAD bad blogger. But I warned you! I warned you! School was going to make my minimal posting even MORE minimal.

Well, school is kicking my butt. I think I might be getting a bit of senioritis. I hate EVERY little thing that I have to do for school.

This is basically what I looked like last Thursday night after getting back a 1st draft attempt at a paper. Thank goodness I have Mr. Shiny Happy Sunbeam for a husband and he helped me get myself back together.

Dang! That teacher ripped my paper to SHREDS! I have NEVER had so many redlines on a paper EVER! EVER!!! It IS her job to rip it apart since it IS a FREAKING WRITING CLASS. But still.... I felt like a total idiot after reading that. THEN, this week in class we were supposed to do peer copy editing. Wow! Was I gun shy after her going over my paper. I questioned myself at every step.

I need a vacation.....

I am Elzabeth Bennett

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

"You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of silliness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed."

Opera Man

Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Share Photos - Free Video Hosting

Niki in Positano Italy has the greatest life ever. She gets to LIVE in ITALY! For gosh sakes!

She also has a man who wanders the hills around her home and sings his heart out. I LOVE THIS MAN! Now, I don't sing well (my husband likes to remind me of this fact), so I will not be doing the same. However, I know how he feels when he bursts out into song. I felt the same way when I had climbed to the top of the Italian Alps.

This is sorta what it looked like

I felt like I was in the beginning shot of the Sound of Music.

However, opera is probably more appropriate for Positano.



If these were not as much as my monthly rent I would definitely purchase one or two.

R.I.P. Poverotti

When I was about 13 or 14 my parents took us on a trip to London. It just so happens that Luciano Poverotti was giving a concert in Hyde park while we were there. It ALSO so happened that our hotel was right beside Hyde Park. The day of the concert, I remember sitting in the bathtub of my hotel room with the window open while Poverotti practiced a bit. It was fabulous!

I didn't go to the concert. We had tickets to Starlight Express. Yes, I chose Starlight Express instead... My mom stayed behind and listened to the entire concert from our hotel room. She was much wiser than I.
