Crazy Side Effects...

so... i'm glad it's not anal leakage or sleepy orgies.. but my new medicine has the most bizarre side effect... excessive yawning...

So I yawn.. all day.. regardless.. I promise you aren't that boring.

Cliques Might Not be Such a Bad Idea

I used to be a mean girl and as I've become an adult.. I am not proud of it. I think I was kind of ridiculous and way too rude and basically being a dumbass trying to act big and bad so that no one saw how insecure I was... Cliques were stupid in high school... I see my students and their cliques and I think it's stupid with them too..

BUT I wish I could form a clique at my job.. I wish I could be a mean girl for like 10 mins and tell the two people on my team that I hate.. Please DO NOT talk to me. When we leave a room and do not invite you to the new location.. it is because we are trying to get away from you. Lurking around us while we are talking DOES NOT include you in the conversation and is basically just damn creepy... So... if it is work related.. send me an e-mail and I will respond at my leisure.. if it is not work related tell someone else.. and If I am ever in a group of people telling them anything and you happen to be there.. I still am emphatically NOT talking to you... so please don't respond directly to me.

But I can't do this because I mean it's unprofessional. As I typed that rant out.. I realize I have a problem and need to get over it.. BUT I mean come one.. one good cussing out might be painful for a minute.. but it would prevent another 190 days of awkward moments, eye rolling and me just basically wishing you had called in sick today...

Good thing tomorrow is Friday.

Food For Thought

Is it really cool to be Ho?

Ho Sit Down. This song is so ridiculous, I don't even need to give you any commentary. Kiely sit the fuck down, get into counseling, go to somebody's church, and repent for the sin you have done to humanity, women, black people, Disney, your mama, aliens who may be viewing through space age satellites.. and my kids who might one day be on and find this analrot that you actually took the time to produce so you must think it's good.

Shame on you.

Getting to Know You...

Getting to know all aboooooout you.. Getting to like you.. getting to hope you like me!

I have been on a journey of self-improvement which has slightly derailed this once fabulously hilarious blog, to one that has become all touchy feely... buuut whatever.. You get what I give.. i give what I feel LOL.. (hence the title) HA!

So I've been reading lots of blogs about happiness, one being The Happiness Project. This has been turned into a book.. which sits on The New York Times Best Sellers List.. go Gretchen Rubin. And this is a quiz from her blog that is supposed tap into who you TRULY are.. we shall see..

Here’s a quiz, lightly adapted from The Creative Lawyer, to help you figure out your interests. Not what you WISH interested you, but what ACTUALLY interests you.

1. What part of the newspaper do you read first?

I skim the front page first... I read the advice columns first.

2. What are three books you’ve read in the past year?

Prep, How to Win Friends and Influence People, Outliers

3. As a child, what did you do in your free time?

Played board games, listened to music, watched tv, read the encyclopedia and other books, talked on the phone, wrote.

4. What’s a goal that has been on your list for a few years?

Get back into dance classes regularly

5. What do you actually do with your free time?

read, write, eat with friends, go to the movies, talk to friends.

6. What types of activities energize you?

Dancing, talking to friends, community service, doing things outdoors, creating things, going to concerts, drinking wine, traveling

7. What famous people intrigue you?

Janet Jackson, Tina Fey, Niecy Nash, Zoe Saldana, Michelle Obama, Heidi Klum, Keri Washington, Malcolm Gladwell (Okay.. i might be mixing up intrigue and arouse on some of these.. but whatever..)

Hmmmm from answering these, I think that I'm pretty in touch with who I am.. I think it was easy to answer them. I think I just want some things to add to my things I do with my free time. I know there are activities that I am dying to incorporate and I am going to have to make that my goal this summer, whether I am doing it solo or with you, because I want to expand my horizons and realize that I love doing new things, and trying new stuff.

The last question was much more difficult to answer, because I think I look for most famous people for the superficial, and I don't have much personal interest in them for real. I mean there are politicians.. I guess Nancy Pelosi is on that list cause she is a BAAAAAAAAD woman for real.

How easy is it for you to answer these questions? Share them in the comments.

Lent Update

Cause I'm a copy cat....

I forgot about it half the time.. and then complained the other half.. so No. Spidey did not do well on the Lent tip.

Ah well.. .I did so much more in the last 40 (or so) days that have heightened my awareness and expanded my life and made me reach new heights that I can't even be mad.
