My happy thought is still working. The power of blueberry muffins.

I wonder if I’ll have time for some real food on the way there? I think so, unless the cab is late.

TITLE: Sipping Cider Through a Straw

The prettiest girl the prettiest girl
I ever saw I ever saw
Was sippin’ ci- was sippin’ ci-
Der through a straw der through a straw
The prettiest girl I ever saw
Was sippin’ cider through a straw

I said to her, “What ya doin’ that fer”
A sippin’ cider through a straw”…

First cheek to cheek, then jaw to jaw
We both sipped cider through a straw…

Every now and then, that straw would slip
And we’d sip cider lip to lip…

That’s how I got my mother in law
By sippin’ cider through a straw

Now forty-nine kids, all call me Pa
From sippin’ cider through a straw

my aura from Emode.com

Groovy, baby! Your aura is a bright, shiny Gold — which means you’re a kid at heart with a happy, generous nature.

We don’t need a psychic to tell us that you’re giving off a Gold vibe. You couldn’t ask for a better color — a glistening gold aura is as good as it gets. A lively blend of yellow and orange, gold people are happy, playful, energetic, sensitive, and generous. Always up for adventure, you’d give a friend in need the shirt off your back. You’re spiritual, too — all those halos in old paintings aren’t colored gold by coincidence. Almost childlike in the carefree, joyful way you live your life, you’re popular and outgoing with your large circle of friends. Chances are you’re so full of light and energy that you sometimes find it hard to sit still and chill out. Instead, you’re constantly looking for excitement, no matter how risky or impulsive the occasion. Happy-go-lucky and always laughing, you truly are as good as gold.

going to the study tonight, getting a little more nervous. *must think happy thoughts* got one.

Going to get a blueberry muffin from the vend-o-mat and have it for a tasty before beddybye snack.

Cider thinks she’s going to dupe me into a false sense of security, by pretending she fears my word knowledge. feh. She does debate for fun. She’s a girl in a tech field. She wears glasses and is a self-proclaimed klutz. I know a brainiac when I see one (even if aforementioned brainiac is a vision of unequalled wit and can wear a wonder woman costume in public. We all know that those gals from paradise island are all frickin’ computo-brain propellerhead smarties.)

We shall see. indeed, we shall.

words that describe my current mindset.


in that order.

Just slurped down a tasty cherry slushie. I wish takeout made grilled cheese.

I’m sad that nobody wants to play email scrabble with me. 🙁

I’m happy that I’ve been fed. 🙂

I’m surprised that I’ve formed a crush already. Silly Scotto. Gives me something to think about, though. 🙂 or :0

I wonder how Newt’s going to deal with me heading out to the sleep study after work… It’ll get dark and light without me coming home.

I’m flattered that I’ve gotten so many new friends the last week or so… I don’t know if it’s interests or random, but It’s pretty spiff.

from the spark’s personality test (thanks Cider!)

(Dominant Introvert Abstract Feeler )

Like just 2% of the population you are an ARTIST (DIAF)–creative, adventurous, and deep. Although you are an introvert, your dominant ideas lead you to assert yourself often–especially through your work. You actively put your creativity to constructive use, and because you are ruled by your heart you are less likely to be inhibited by logic.

You have an intuitive understanding of emotion and know how evoke it in others, but the real world can be a prison of foolishness and embarrassment if you don’t get your head out of the clouds a little more. Also, you are 87% likely to write poetry. Please, for the love of God, stop now.

my reincarnation test.


You will be pleased to know that in your former life you were a turtle named Gifford. Details about your life are a bit sketchy, but what follows is a brief summary, based on public records. You were born in a small pond near the side of a saloon. Despite an exceptionally athletic father, you seemed to prefer sunbathing and mudbaths to more active pursuits. Your favorite color was never green, contrary to rumor, but actually blue. Few people knew that you were a talented poet, but most of your work was destroyed during a flashflood that swept away not only your library, but your entire community. You had the pluck to survive, and lived a happy and charmed life with your wife Melinda and your twenty offspring.

things I would sacrifice in order to survive, in order of first to last –

according to emode

Cow = Basic Needs
Lion = Pride
Sheep = Friendship
Horse = Your Passion
Monkey = Your Children

I’m not sure… I think I’m more likely to give up pride over basic needs, but unknown?
