Boboli pizza with real, shredded by me, Precious brand mozzerella, was heavenly. Tossed some zucchini on it as well, but the cheese made it wonderful. Foods from childhood, such as the mozzerella or broccoli with mayonnaise, always taste incredible.

Don't hate on the broccoli and mayo, y'all. It's good!

It's cool that people exist who you know you can't trust. It's the ones who start to earn your trust/seem okay, only to turn slimy again, that bug me.

Intentionally cryptic FTW! (The above does not refer to anyone privy to my LJ)

I think my hot water heater isn't heating water. My shower may be chilly again tonight.

I've now watched all the 2009 "Totally LOST" videos on EW.com, and maybe half of 2010, though out of order. Upon exploring the tabs, I see there's enough videos to keep me busy for at least a week! Woot! My LOST void is less voidy. Voidfull. Voidish.

Damon Lindelof either has awesome pecs or moobs. I couldn't tell which.

Two weeks ago, I watched the last Tuesday night episode. Yeah, you could say I miss my favorite show just a little. I'm on the lookout for a Jack/Kate icon from the finale. One that really grabs me. It might just become my new default, if the Richard/Isabella one doesn't. Looking through my icons folder, I could fill a lot of space with LOST icons, but I won't. I have 121 of 124 spaces used already.

In two weeks I'll be in Chicago! YAY!

Let's see, I now have icons of the following fictional couples:
1 Grissom and Sara - CSI
2 Han Solo and Princess Leia - Star Wars
4 Arwen and Aragorn - Lord of the Rings
1 Charlie and Claire - Lost
2 (cartoon) Anakin and Padme - Star Wars
3 Jane and Rochester - Jane Eyre
3 Darcy and Lizzie - Pride and Prejudice
1 Christian and Satine - Moulin Rouge
1 Mulder and Scully - The X-Files (they sort of count!)
1 Baby and Johnny - Dirty Dancing

Hmmm, romance obsessed much?

I keep giggling at this icon.

All weekend, I kept telling myself I'd post about the new school year and other fun things going on in my life. Well, here it is Sunday night, and I'm too pooped to write it all out. So, you get the short version, list style.
-4th graders are SO MUCH EASIER to handle than 8th graders. They actually listen.
-They are getting chatty, but I don't get as stressed over it. I'm still working on teaching them procedures and how things should look and sound.
-Less making up of curriculum, but more figuring out what I'm teaching.
-Having to plan 2 weeks ahead is stressful. I don't like it at all. My plan book is a mess, all to make my principal happy when I give him the photo copies. I can't even read what's in my little boxes.
-A much slower pace and a whole lot of patience is required in 4th grade.
-4th graders are cute.
-I still have a ton to do, not enough time to do it, but I'm not freaked out at the end of each day. I actually am able to relax when I get home.

Other stuff that I want to talk about, but...eventually. Also, I love all the new icon space. I still have room for 50 more!

After spending about $25 on food all day today, I realized that it's really ok to spend $10 for extra icon space. I've wanted it for a while, and it's for a whole year. So, here I am, thinking I'm going to upload a ton of new icons, and I've done about 5. Yeah, I'm a dork. I need to look at my LOTR icons still, to see if I want more of those.

Ahhh I love icons.

I don't get it. What is it about lj icons that is so addicting? I wanted to add this one for the season, though it might stick around for a while, but I was almost unable to make room for it. Gah, to think at one point I had 3 icons! Then 6, then paid acct and got 15. Then 30, and now at 39 icons, I NEED MORE SPACE! I can't justify paying for more, but then again, with how much I spend on coffee, maybe I can.

Hmm, I don't know how I'm going to make it till summer. It's somewhat easy right now, preparing for AIMS and not having a lot to plan or grade. Still, I just don't want to be at work. I want my life back. I want to be able to come home from work and be able to do things besides whatever I brought home because there isn't enough time in the school day. Whoa, run-on sentence! I want to be able to go to a friend's house or a church function on a weekday. It's not that I'm in a bad mood at the moment, but work isn't supposed to consume so much of a person's life like teaching does. Whenever I think about it, it gets me a little depressed. That, and the perpetual feeling that I'm totally ineffective. I know I'm not, but I swear, too many days I want to bang my head against the wall. I asked a coworker if she thinks I'm confusing when I am teaching, and she said no, the kids are just sitting there picking their noses.

Um, need to eat something healthy, as a chocolate banana ice cream shake really doesn't constitute a good dinner. Steamed veggies it is!
