life the university and everything else

well, like toaster, i haven't posted in a while.

Monkeys is peeking around hte corner saying "MLR - come to bed. come to bed MLR. It's magical land of joy and sleepiness and sleepinessness" YOU MUST GO TO YOUTUBE AND WATCH THIS. i don't know how to embed the video.

If the link doesn't work go to Google and type in Candy Mountain Charlie

Anyways, here's what i've been up to lately... I've been busy!

busy worrying - because Monkey's company's contract didn't get renewed and since the last time that happened the new company coming in laid of 20% of the workforce we were a bit afraid that we'd discover Monkey's would lose his job just in time for Christmas. so lots of fretting and praying and being anxious for the past few weeks (and to some extent, months) but he just finished his interviews and got hired on with the new company so all is well and Christmas is saved.

busy with work - i just finished a project involving the changes to state recommended credit for exams (CLEP, AP, etc) and presented it at the two registration meetings with about 30 people each session. that was scary but i was proud of me. and i've been really busy working on getting ready for my class. if monkeys was gonna lose his job i wanted to make sure i had some extra income coming in so for that and other reasons i volunteered to teach.

plus we've started up the reading group again on Mondays (yay!), still doing movie nights on Tuesdays (yesterday we watched Brotherhood of the Wolf), Wednesdays are mandolin lessons (i'm getting better at improv! but considering how aweful i was when i started that's not saying much), Yoga on Thursdays (cuz life's been stressful lately...).

ha! weeks without a post and when i finally get a chance it's a bit boring.
anyone watching Heroes? I love Hiro!!!!

I really wanna watch Heroes, but I'm having the same problem I always have committing to being home every week at the same time. I'm sure I'll end up catching this on DVD, after I've already found out what happens because of my addiction to Entertainment Weekly. *sigh*

Hey, I wanna trade favors. E-mail me...

Re: AWESOME news
okay, for the record... i moved every piece of furniture in the living room and swept. vacuumed the rug. scrubbed the label off the french doors (finally) and used the rest of the windex wipe to clean our bathroom mirror, lint brushed the couch, wrote in my real diary, and worked on some classstuff. i love powerpoint.

so i wasn't a total bum today...

guess what - next weekend we're getting a washer and dryer! it's supposed to be a birthday present but they are having a sale next weekend so we're getting them a week early. (dryer from my parents, washer from john) i am so unbelieveable excited.
