addictive show despite viewer knowledge

Tonight I was watching Celebrity Poker Showdown on NBC (usually on Bravo). Strangely addicting... even though I know nothing about poker. Bravo as a whole is strangely addictive in many aspects... Queer Eye is entertaining, as is this... but more on that another day.

God Yul! Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Joyoux Noel!

Long time, no post. I know, I know... I'm slacking. Well, considering what has been going on, it's no wonder!!
Well, Christmas was nice. My aunt and uncle came on Christmas Day and we had a big feast. It was a nice time. I got some great gifts (gave some great ones too, I must add!) and I get to go and pick out a GUITAR! woo hoo! :) Better go and search for a good one at a good price here before I make way to the store!
...but now it is off to shopping with mom... well, it all depends on whether or not there is parking available. If not, it may just be a drive with mom! :)

Emotional Hangover...

Well, the concerts are done. Today I feel like a limp dishrag. (yes, that is an accurate description of how I feel!) Everything went really well... even considering the first grader who threw up all over the floor after the first song. (and his classmate who didn't make it to the gym at all because he threw up in the classroom!) But everyone enjoyed it anyway, and things are looking up with only tomorrow, Monday and half of Tuesday before WINTER BREAK! Woo hoo!

Two down, four (five?) to go....

So, I'm about 1/3 through the concert-conducting of the season. My middleschoolers did a great job both this morning and tonight. Tomorrow is the 1st grade concert for the Golden Age Club, then next Tuesday am my 4th/5th Graders go to the elementary, then Wednesday am at their school, a final 1st dress rehearsal for the elementary audience that afternoon, then the parent's concert in the evening. (Wednesday will be a tough day!) But it is good to have some of it behind me, anyway!

What color are you?

you are deepskyblue

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Snow totals

Well, it did snow. A lot. It still is, actually. We must have about 9 inches. It's beautiful... and I got to christen my baby jeep in the snow!! :) I love 4wd! But with all of the cold and blowing, it is still better to be inside with a warm drink and cozy clothes on. Ah, gotta love the snow-day mentality!

Let it snow???

Well, we might get a noreaster storm this weekend.... but then again, the weatherpeople are all hyped up, which usually means two flakes, if that much. So, who knows. I'll keep ya'll posted. :)

I am slowly learning the allure of online shopping. Got some stuff online already for Christmas, since the amazing amount of concert-ing keeps me from wanting to deal with more self-inflicted stress in a store. Don't like shipping costs, though. Not cool.
