Things I Remember and Miss

Happy Friday in Wind Ensemble-i.e. Copland's Hoe-Down.

Ridiculous kids movies that I can't watch anymore with out being ridiculed
-Pete's Dragon
-The My Little Pony Movie (I did watch this a while ago with Sapphire when I went to visit her in Kansas. We loved My Little Pony!)
-The Nutcracker Fantasy
-The Polar Bear King (just kidding!) Don't watch the whole clip unless you want gouge your eyes out because thats what you will want to do. (in truth the little kid in me loves that movie.)

Believing in Santa Clause.

Good Musicals. They just don't make them like they used to. Though I did really enjoy Across the Universe and Moulin Rouge.

When a big box or a pile of blankets and a few chairs were the most fun in the world.

Gas being a dollar.

Being a kid doing the Missourian paper route. I do not miss the early mornings, but I miss the adventures that I would have with myself.

Mary Morris and Sapphire Hodges, The two greatest friends in the world when I was a kid.

Being able to play in the McDonald's playplace.

Mountains (tee hee).

The magic of a fallen tree.

Snow Days.

Leaf houses in the back yard.

Recess. The time and the cartoon. In fact, I really miss One Saturday Morning.
-Pepper Anne
-The Weekenders
-The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest (I dont think this was on One Saturday Morning. I seem to remember watching it after school.)

And Lets not forget
-Darkwing Duck
-Duck Tales
-Chip and Dale The Rescue Rangers
-Captain Planet

Sorry. I had a fit of cartoon nostalgia right there. Oh, the memories.

speaking of memories, a really fun website is

I also really miss toys. I can't believe all the fun I had with just a basket random bits from other old toys.

Playing Star Wars with Mary... and all those times that we would pretend that we were wolves. We loved wolves and Star wars.

Playing Mario Brothers with Christina and Mary.

Marys house. I tell you, it was the coolest house.

Good times on Love Oak Lane.

Trick Or Treating.

Playing the Marimba.

That was good for my soul. I miss a lot of things. I wish that life were as simple as it was when I was a kid. I know it's good to grow. But I also know that a life spent worrying about everything is not a fun life. It's the life I'm living right now. So many worries. I'll get through it though. I always do.

I got really depressed the other day thinking about the day when I wont get a month off for Christmas break or a week off for Thanksgiving. Even more depressing is that I wont have three months during the summer.

How sad.

In the meantime I will take full advantage of the breaks that I am given. Except this year, I have two exams soon after and I cant do bad on them. I also still have one paper to revise. So I cannot allow myself to not do anything.

But there is something very exciting in my future (besides being an aunt which is uber exciting!!!). I get to go caving!!! The last lab for my ecology class is caving! I cant wait. I don't know how intense it's going to be but I know that were going to get wet and muddy! It wont be as cool as it was in science club in Jr. high because we only have 4 hours but it will still be cool. I wonder how I'm going to get to work on time. I may have to tell Bill that I cant be there till 6:00 instead of 5:30. Bummer

Life is pretty good right now. I'm feeling stronger and happier than I was a little while ago. I have leftover chicken Parmesan and a tasty salad waiting for me at home. After work tonight I might be able to attend the last leg of a birthday party for Marcia. I can relax a little tomorrow. I have a lot to look forward to.

The only thing is work. It's been pretty slow lately and thats not good for me on the money front. I predict that tonight will be OK until 9:00 when we will have no one for the last hour of the night. But Saturday, i just don't know. It's not a home game. It's at 11:30. So we could be busy. But last week it was a home game at the same time and we were pretty darn dead. I just don't know what to believe anymore!

I'll just have to wait and see.

I am the Walrus!

(Moms right. Theres going to be a whole new generation of Beatles lovers out there because of Across the Universe).

I am still alive

I don't have a lot of time. I must make this brief. I am in the clutches of an evil technological genius that stole me and took me to the future. At least I think thats where I am. I pretty sure he has me mistaken for someone else because he keeps calling me Princess. Strange. And he keeps asking me where I hid my time melting device. Whatever that is.

I have tried to find a way out of this place, but it is huge and judging by what I saw out one of the windows it's located on an island. That probably explains why I have not been confined to a cage or prison cell. Thats why I found this old computer. I went through one of the only doors unlocked and discovered this room with all these Macs and Dells. They are all dusty and look like they have been here for years, except they are all way more advanced than anything I have ever seen. It took me forever to figure this one out. I'm not even typing! I just put my hand on a metal plate and think the words and they appear.

I'm a little scared, but I don't have time to panic. I need to figure out what this guy wants, who he thinks I am and how I can convince him that I can't help him on either of these aspects.

I want to let my family know, if they are still alive, that I am okay and safe for the time being. I don't think this guy want's me dead and thats all I got going for me...

Sorry, I'm not sure where that came from. I just started a sentence and that all came out. Maybe I should post it on my writing blog and make something out of it.

But seriously, I wish that I had more time to update this blog and my other blog. It's just been a crazy couple of weeks. I'm no longer at a dead run, but I am still having to canter along and I am exhausted. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving break. You have no idea...or maybe you do.

Anyway, I know that at one point I said that I would do a movie review entry and I still plan on that. But in all honesty it most likely happen until Thanksgiving Break. I know that most of you don't really care and the movies I will review are ones that most of you have already seen, but I am still going to do it because it is fun. I will also post my answers to the Christmas Present Survey that Steven put out so that those of you who read this and as so inclined to go by lists will have some idea of what I am wanting this year. Okay, I am late for institute. I have to go now.

I think he's onto me!
