no words for you

i'm stuck, yall. i have things to write about, but don't like any of the words i put on the screen. maybe i'll get inspired later this week, but for now here is a tour of my camera the last few weeks.

i-35 entertainment needed

i think that the reason a lot of people (me) became teachers is because they may be a little bit on the control freak side. so, when you are going to be gone for two days in a row and those two days happen to be a friday and monday one might say the control freak side of you might be getting a little stressed out.

so if you are one of those people (me) then perhaps you should do something to keep your neurosis at bay. lately my escapism has been making playlists for the trusty ol' iPod. this is not a fruitless task right now, either, since i will be spending a crazy amount of time in the car over the next four days. but this is where yall come in. i'm tapped out. i never thought i would say this, but i may be a little tired of singing rihanna songs at the top of my lungs while driving up i-35. it may be time to update the selections available itunes. YALL should help. give me some music suggestions. i feel like sending some more money steve jobs' way.

how i entertain myself on sundays when the cowboys play on monday night

church.  i can't get "how can i keep from singing your name" out of my head.  i'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that i came home and pulled up the chords to learn how to play it.

lunch with friends.  oh, uncle julio, how i love you and your chicken fajita meat on a salad.

cooking this week's lunch: chicken stroganoff in the crock-pot.  i have to make it while i am at home because i get weird about leaving the crock-pot plugged in while i am at work all day.  and yes.  you read that right.  i am cooking.  for like the millionth time this week.

watching even more of season 1 gilmore girls.

waiting on the ipod to charge, so i can go to the park to run with lucy in our post-ike BEAUTIFUL weather.

made a new running playlist for the afternoon:
  • me and mr. jones - amy whinehouse (i know, i know, i should quit supporting her, but i LOVE this song!)
  • yield - indigo girls
  • rock & roll - eric hutchinson (live)
  • calabria 2007 - enur (yes, it's the song from the target commercial)
  • leavin' - jesse mccartney
  • church - t-pain
  • the longest time - billy joel (i don't know why, but i've been on a billy joel kick lately.  odd.)
  • woodstock - alice smith
  • in the ayer - flo rida (oh hot damn.  this is my jam.)
  • hate on me - jill scott
  • mercy - duffy
  • scar - missy higgins
  • take a bow - rihanna
  • taxman - nickel creek (the BEST cover EVER)
  • suga suga - baby bash

also, apparently, posting pointless blogs like the one you have just patiently read.

of course, all of these are being done because i am tired of grading.  unfortunately, reality is going to set in soon.

lazy saturday

blogger hates me today. i have tried to post this several times and in several different ways. each time i do, the format of my entire page gets screwed up. boo.

so. the point i was trying to make is that for those of you who care to read it, i FINALLY updated the nerdy book blog. click on the link at the side to check it out.

also. my dad was here this morning after picking up his new car down here in dfw. this was our fun little joy ride this morning with lucy in tow.

will write more later - no. i lied. i won't.

i am on my way to work, but i had to share this link to mama pop.  i'm going to write more later, but after i do, i'm done with politicking and feministing for a while.  but let me just say this: i am DISGUSTED by the comments i heard yesterday from "feminists" who were questioning whether or not palin can do a good job while being a mother at the same time.  WHAT?  i'm sorry.  did i misunderstand?  i thought that was what the feminist movement was about . . . that women can do whatever they want and be whatever they want.  we have a choice.  that's what i've been taught my entire life, so why are people - aka "feminist" women - trying to suddenly take that away?

okay.  seriously.  i'll write more later.  you don't have to read it or agree with it.  that's your choice. - actually, i've decided i'm done writing on this topic.  :)  movin' on.

p.s.  i'm too young to remember 1984's election, so unfortunately all i've seen are pictures of ferraro.  so for me, seeing a woman accept the nomination for vice president OF ANY PARTY was incredible last night.  just saying.
