Katie Couric

First let me say that on Monday, I wrote this big rant about the show Clean House and this lady that was really upset when they redid her room, but it wouldn't save and I was bitter and that's why there hasn't been any posts lately.

In honor of Katie Couric's (who I think is a mindless twit) last day at the Today show. I thought that I'd share my favorite Katie Couric moment.

She was interviewing Kevin Bacon about his performance in the Oscar nominated movie Mystic River.

Katie: Do you remember when you did Footloose?
Kevin: Uh...yeah
Katie: Do you ever want to just dance around like you did in Footloose?
Katie: I do.

They went on to talk about Footloose some more and never did get around to Mystic River. Did you ever see that SNL skit where Chris Farley has his own talk show? That's what it reminded me of. I expected Katie to say "That was awesome."

Adios Katie!

My Job

This is the necklace I made at work today. And it was actually what I was supposed to be doing and I was getting paid for it. The long beads are made out of paper. ::sigh:: I love my new job!

I Got My New Computer

That hopefully means more posts and now you can see pictures like this.

That's how high our seats were at the NCAA tournament. Yes, that is a heating duct.

I don't understand baseball fields

I really don't get why is is acceptable to have baseball fields that are all different sizes. I mean sure its the same distance around the plates, but the distances to the outfield wall are all different. It not only effects how easily home runs have to be hit, but also how far the outfielders need to run and throw.

Isn't this like playing football one place and having the field be 100 yards and going somewhere else and having it be 150 or maybe a little wider and somewhere else its 95 and narrow?

Mother's Day Chocolates

For those of you who have already heard this story, skip down for the update. For Mother's Day I decided to order some giant cashew turtles (called bearclaws-that's the picture) from this place called Kilwin's in Saugatuck, MI. My mom always sees them and remarks how yummy they look, but won't buy them for herself because they're too expensive. (They're not really that expensive, just in my mom's mind they are.)

They weren't available on the web so I called them the Monday before Mother's Day and they said no problem we'll ship some out. Friday, my mom still hadn't received them. I was giving Kilwin's the benefit of the doubt (they probably didn't go till Tuesday, there's lots of mail), but thought I should call to check anyway and see if they knew when possible delivery would be. Saturday afternoon Kilwin's called me back. They lost the order (they're remodeling). They'll ship them out overnight mail on Monday. That's great, but it's past Mother's Day.

I'm bitching to people about Kilwin's and how I'm pissed because my mom probably thinks I just didn't order them in time (which I did). And everyone's asking well did Kilwin's send any extra, are they going to refund some of your money, etc. and I say they didn't say.

I'm here to take all my badmouthing back. Yesterday I received a very large gift wrapped box of assorted chocolates and a note of apology from the owner. They're very yummy and made me feel much better about the whole thing.
The Yoga Didn't Work

I had one girl try to kick another girl in the head.

It's so hot

It's like 65 degrees out and my grandmother has the fireplace on. Thank God that I'm moving out in two weeks.

I'm teaching underprivileged kids yoga and tai chi to deal with their anger tonight...Should be fun.

Anyone else really glad the Hippies won the Amazing Race?

Serge the Singing Shark

Music and Lyrics by The Pink Shoe

I'm Serge,
The Singing Shark
I'm a shark
And I sing
I have a skeleton
It's made of cartilage
Because I'm Serge,

Rude Awakening

My psycho younger cousin called at around 6 this morning to see if we knew what size shoe her sister wears. She was at Wal-mart and wanted to buy shoes. This family just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Iron Chef: Battle Squid

When I watch Iron Chef America, I like to pretend that I'm open minded and would try anything they served up no matter how disgusting it really looks or seems. I mean, they're world famous chefs, it has to taste good, right?

I would even try the black noodles made with squid ink or the little squid meringue candy. But squid eye cartilage is where I draw the line. Especially then when the judge was like "uh, I loved the squid guts, but squid eye cartilage must not be my thing."

Magic Show

I went to this volunteer dinner last night and the theme was "The Magic of Volunteering." They had a magician there and everything. I would've enjoyed it if the guy infront of me didn't have a weird softball sized growth on the back of his head.
I work in the ghetto

Last week I went to the one school that I work at sometimes and there was a car in the parking lot that looked like a police car, but said Harrisburg City Schools on the side. It had four flat tires. This week I went back and it had four flat tires and the windshield was broken.

I was also looking on the Harrisburg City schools website and they have a position called "Sexual Harrassment Coordinator." That just doesn't sound right.
Dead Body

Last week there was a dead body discovered in the trunk of a car just a block from where I work. I think I may actually have walked by the car (while the dead body was in it) on my way to a meeting. Ick!

On good news, I found regular gas for $2.81!!! It's in the ghetto and I'm kinda scared of being shot as I'm pumping, but hey, it's worth it for cheap gas!
