Hey everyone. It has been str8 up crazy this week. So much is going on. I think I'm going to have to start blogging more often to fit it all in.
Ok--here we go.
I have always been a huge fan of Roseanne (both the show and the comedian) but I am very disappointed that she has chosen to stand up for Charlie Sheen. He is an idiot and I am glad that he was fired. I think he needs to take a serious look at his actions. I am a huge proponent for people being able to do what they want to but, all actions have consequences. Dude--you can't have hookers brought to your door AND be on a family friendly sit com. Pick one and move on. If he is on one more cover of people magazine--I am canceling my subscription. Roseanne--please stop adding to the insanity.
I have always been very vocal about my opposition to the death penalty. Not only have innocent people been executed but it is VERY expensive and does not deter people from crime. Anyways--I was happy to see Illinois put a ban on the DP this week. Other states have actually considering getting rid of it to save money. I know that there are evil people out there--I get it. I just don't think.....well...it doesn't matter....I'm just happy about Illinois.
Ok--GREAT NEWS!! The Quaker Oats company has decided to keep Cap'n Crunch. They were seriously considering getting rid of the cereal. After thousands of letters--they decided that was a bad idea. I love Cap'n Crunch.
Did you all know that Pop tarts come in 30 different flavors? I do enjoy a pop tart now and then. Today, one of my students suggested that I try to put butter on them when they are hot. That sounds so good but the last thing that my fat ass needs is butter on a pop tart. I'll probably try it anyways.
True story: yesterday, while on a high school field trip, a 17 year old student jumped off of the Bay Bridge on a dare. Oh--and here is the best part--he survived--no injuries whatsoever. This is the future of our country. I guess he answered that age old question asked by every mother--"if they asked you to jump off of a bridge would you?" I cannot believe how lucky that idiot is. Please don't call it a miracle--it's called luck when they are idiots.
Yesterday was one of the scariest days of my life. I had to call 911 for Myriam and I seriously thought she was going to die before the ambulance came. After a number of tests, including a spinal tap, they sent her home. She's doing GREAT today. I am very grateful that the hospital took such good care of her and that she is ok now. Headaches can be super scary--especially when they include loss of sight and vomiting.
As many of you know--during my mid life crisis--I actually left my relationship for some pretty stupid reasons. The logistics of that mess are not important. All I can say is that I am so glad I am back home with Myriam and that we are working stuff out. Myriam is an amazing person and we have had 12 great years together. I'm grateful for second chances, honesty, and my own growth. Especially after what happened yesterday--I know in my heart that I am where I supposed to be.
Kind of sappy--I know. What can I say--I am a hopeless romantic.
It's supposed to be a nice weekend and I do not have to teach:) Looking forward to skating and maybe we will go on a picnic. My brother in law David is coming on Sunday and so is our friend Cris so that will be super fun.
Nearly finished with act one of my one person show. I'm looking for people to read it and give me some feedback. Any takers? I have a regular one AND one that is pg 13 just so ya know.
Due to Myriam's emergency I was unable to attend my first Tai Chi class. I will go next week for sure and let you all know how it goes.
Here are some other things I have planned for next week. Some of them even sound fancy and important. They are all gonna be super fun.
Board of Directors meeting for The Movement, haircut at Flaunt by wait for it...Brock Le Brock, smoke and kick it with K.R., drum class, tai chi, massage, appointment with a hypnotist, AND my first soccer game ever. My friend Sammy is a member of the Angel City Brigade. You can see a video of them on youtube. They are a super crazy bunch that raises all kinds of crazy at the games. In fact, sometimes the law has to get involved. We wear bandanas over our faces so the cops can't tell who we are. It's kind of like a cross between a super hero and a gang member. I'm really excited. GO HARD OR GO HOME!! Sammy even bought my ticket so that makes it even better.
Yeah--I try to live on the edge. That's it for today. Thanks for reading. I'm so close to 10,000 hits. Please leave comments. You all rock. Much love!
