So Long Homies

I was going to say what I said to my boss on my last day of work, which was, "SO LONG SUCKKAS!," but decided against it. My boss found it funny. Why am I saying "So long," you ask? Well, I'm heading to Arizona in the morning to visit Sweet Cactus and my friend Irene. I'm SOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!! I won't be back for a few days, so I leave you with a Friday Five to tide you over.

Friday Five:
1. Do you sing in the shower?
2. Do you read the paper on-line or on paper?
3. Who was your 3rd grade teacher?
4. Did you tight-roll your jeans?
5. What are your feelings about the side pony-tail?

Contumacious – stubbornly disobedient

Short shrift - barely adequate time for confession before execution; little or no attention or consideration ; quick work

Friday Five!!

1. What book are you reading (for fun)?
2. What is the last TV show you watched?
3. Do you have cable?
4. Do you have a library card?
5. Swiss or Pepper Jack?

Six Degrees Winner!

Way to go, FishFrog! You connected Michael J. Fox in just 3 little steps. What kind of candy bar would you like?

Here's you he did it:

1. MJ Fox to Julie Bowen (Boston Legal)
2. Bowen to Maura Tierney (ER)
3. Maura Tierney to Dave Foely (Newsradio)

Props also need to be given to Panda for connecting the two actors in 0 degrees. Sadly, she gets no candy bar and all the glory rightfully goes to FishFrog because Panda was too slow in posting her response. Still, I say "kudos!"

Word Box!

A friend of mine sent me a quiz called "what slanguage do you speak?" The quiz was lame, so I will not post my answers here, but one question asked me to identify what a timbit is. I got a kick out of that, and it reminded me to open the word box!Align LeftThe word box will be open until Monday, February 12, 2007.
Happy Wording!

Thought-less Thursday

While I'm not going to actually turn Thursdays into Thought-less Thursdays, as FishFrog suggests, something happend today that perfectly falls under this theme, so I feel the need to post it.

Today I was in the computer lab , hard at work on this webquest lesson I have to make for my technology class, and there was this chick sitting in front of me. All was quiet and then I heard a song blaring. I looked up to expecting to find the girl scrambling to find the volume switch or the plug in for the headphones, but instead, I saw her bobbing her head - with the headphones on- merrily listening to her song. It was so loud! Why would you blast music in a school computer lab! I was so irritated.
