big wig

i have loads of happy things.
but the funniest is that i, absolutely and sincerely and because it will make a difference, just told
someone to drop my name.

in order to get a job!
i feel like such a high roller or something. who knew?

i love when people buy me lunch

this is a picture of my name on a burrito.

jason saved the night when my car was being a scary monster and we got our matching scarves! i was so happy i bought him two scarves. and he was so happy he bought me two scarves. and now we both have two scarves and we match.

and i found amigo bear at the toys r us.
here's a picture of lydia and amigo bear at the slumber party for angelina.

amigo bear is a friend to everyone, but i bought him to be a special friend for master tedwin tedward iii. whose birthday is still a mystery to us all.

and kathryn bought me the most perfect of perfect fingerless gloves with a mitten hat. and they even match ALL of my coats!

and rennie and i are officially friends.

what a good day, eh?


Five reasons why I am so glad about Wednesday night:
One. I got to go on a date with Fran Fillerup....
Two. My secret dream is to have all my friends come along on my dates....
Three. Sometimes he laughs like my 11-year-old brother...
Four. We gussied up fancy style and everyone was so beautiful.....
Five. There was a delicious onion...
Five point five. I got the pale pink flower....

"ma'am! ma'am! here's some more!"

jason and i are the same person!
we even both like cookies!!!!

i have resigned myself in my crazy life to not doing normal fun things.
i fill my weekends to the best of my ability, but it's hard to do normal things in the middle of the night, which is the only time that i have real free time.
but tonight i got to go shopping like a normal person and have loads of good fun at the same time. aren't nice people a wonderful thing?
tomorrow's going to be lovely too!!

also, i should give a shout out to the little boy who thought i was 15 and tried to sell me a little christmas tree so it would fit in my little house. i decided just to take the scrap branches home, but if you're looking for a small tree, i know where you can get a gorgeous one for $20.

oh do you know i have money in my savings account and not just in checking? money that belongs to me and i have no immediate need of? it's not set aside for anything in particular, just in savings being responsible.

doesn't that make you just sob with joy?

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

compliments i have recently received:
labibi said my flyers were "dead clever"
my boss wrote on my evaluation that he could turn over any project to me and i would get it done...right.
my students said i had beautiful spanish. (oh it's so not true, they've just never heard me speak before, but it still made me happy)
the break dancing kids came in and double dutched with us at jump rope practice. when they left they said i had "the happiest smile" and i told them they should come back next thursday.

and i just shipped a package to el segundo.
do you remember that song?
ha ha ha.
oh that was a funny time of my life.

humpty dumpty

"A Warrior of the Light sometimes thinks: 'If I do not do something, it will not be done.'

It is not quite like that: He must act, but he must allow room for the Universe to act too."

until then we'll have to muddle through somehow

rob invited me to play in the snow.  i should've been busy as a beaver and accomplished real things for projects and working and life, but i was so excited to be invited that i just went anyway.  i even sledded down the hill two times.  and i never sled.  and i made my first snowman ever (out of REAL snow)
did you know you really do just roll it around until it gets bigger and bigger until it's huge?!!  it's true.  just like in the movies and cartoons!  only ours didn't get too big and chase us down the hill and around the park.  cause we were at the bottom of the hill.
see below.
(we didn't have a proper camera, but quick thinking liz used her cell phone.)

and then tammie made us all hot chocolates with peppermint candy cane pieces in it.
today is such a happy happy day.

y ahora viene la viv!
