31 Flavors

Back in the day Baskin Robins was always called "31 Flavors". On May 2nd, this company is trying to raise awareness and money for a charity. In doing this, they will be serving scoops of ice cream for 31 cents. Not all locations are participating and there are only certain times which they will be serving these cheap scoops, so check into it!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The whole job process sucks! Hunting for them, interviewing, jumping through their crazy hoops...

Some people just can't stand Mondays. For me it is different. I have to say that Monday is my favorite night for T.V. It makes me so happy to come home and have shows that I look forward to watching like; 24, The Bachelor, Run's House, Dancing with the Stars. Man, what a great feeling!

The next invention should be a cell phone that you can talk on (and clearly understand the other person) while driving fast with the windows open. Or talking outside today on the phone despite the wind gusts.

Anyone up for the challenge?

I am excited beyond what words can express that Chicago has won U.S. spot for the Olympics!

Now I just have to wait 2 or 3 years before I find out if we really get to host the summer Olympics.

Better late than never

I remember a few months ago, two movies came out that I was very interested in seeing. The unfortunate thing was that they both centered around illusions. So my first thoughts was that they were going to be too similar. This week I put that thought to rest when I watched "The Prestige" and "The Illusionist". I enjoyed both movies. If I had to pick, hands down I'd choose "The Illusionist"!!!!!

I heard that Justin Timberlake is working with Madonna. I am very curious to see what comes out of this.

What's grammar?

As a teacher, I introduced my students in how to: punctuate a sentence properly, use capitals, and spell correctly. For some of these first and second graders these are new concepts that they are learning and require repetition and lots of practice. What I don't understand is why adults are so poor at this. Why is it in blogs, e-mails, letters...there are so many errors. Do they not re-read what they just wrote? Do they not care? Maybe they are ignorant to this fact?

A pet pieve of Gina's and one that I don't truly understand why it happens.

Is Love Blind?

I became quickly intrigued by the radio station 101.9 when they decided to hook up 2 people to see if they could fall in love without seeing each other. They had experts which helped in the process too. After interviewing different brides and grooms they narrowed it down. There was now 1 bride and 1 groom. They talked on the phone and even went on a date to a restaurant where partitions were set up. Since I had a job where I couldn't listen to the radio all the time I was unable to hear many of their interactions, but when I did something just glued me to listen in.

Well, today was the big day where they would walk down the aisle and see each other for the first time and then decide their fate. I was trying to think what this would be like if it were I. So strange, don't know if I could do it. I like the premiss of this whole event on getting to know someone based on their personality instead of their physical appearnace. I totally believe that personality is key, but I have to be honest, I don't know if the personality would completely win if I didn't find the guy attractive.

So this morning I logged online where I could see the event take place. I saw the groom and I saw the bride. Then the website crashed just at the exact time they would see each other for the first time. What a bummer. I was still able to listen to what was going on. They decided to not get married but continue to date and see what happens since they have only dated for 3 weeks. I will be very curious to keep up with this story and see if love is really blind.

Take me out to the ball game

How exciting that baseball season is on its way. The White Sox have had a rough start so far and I am not sure how the season is really going to go. But I am looking forward to hanging out at the ballpark again!!! I am ready to hear those infamous words..."HE GONE"!

Another chapter comes to a close

Today was my last day of teaching 1st grade. How sad! I enjoyed being back in the classroom even on the days of total chaos. These 3 months went way to quick.

I did have a rather unique start to my day. So I just get out of the shower and go to clean my ears. I take one of those nifty q-tips and dive into my left ear. Don't you just love that feeling of getting the water and wax out. Ahhhh. When I went to remove the q-tip, I realized that it fell off in my ear. I couldn't believe it. So I got my tweezers and carefully tried to get it out. It was so strange because I was digging where I couldn't even look. No luck.

I thought, well I will just bring the tweezers to work and hopefully someone would help me out. Good news, they could see the end of the q-tip in my ear, bad news they couldn't get it out. I am happy to say that I could still hear and that it wasn't horrible pain, just annoying and later on in the day it began to throb. So I taught with this crazy thing in my ear. It was weird to chew because I could feel it kind of move back and forth. After work I went to the doctor, she used her nifty scope to investigate and then with a pair of long surgical scissors she removed it.

Guess I won't be using q-tips for a while, but what will I use to clean my ears out?

I am well aware...

Yes, I haven't posted in a while! To be honest, I haven't been all that inspired to write. Part of it is because I have a lot of crap going on. Enough of that, here are some of my thoughts:

:::I thoroughly enjoy watching 24. I have to say that this season has been a little disappointing. It seems that everything is just beeing dragged out. Maybe some of the episodes should have been combined. (I did like tonights show.)

:::Sad to say one of my favorite songs currently is "Glamorous" by Fergie.

:::Call me vain, but man I wish I could just go out and purchase a whole new wardrobe. You ever have those times in your life where you just don't like any of your clothes? And then you go to the mall and see all these great tops and bottoms. I just want to go and swipe, swipe, swipe.

:::Yes, I just had spring break which was awesome, but I am in need to go somewhere and get refreshed with life (and get a tan)!
