-27 Dresses is a really good movie. Well, if you are a woman (or womanly). Men (and the manly) probably won't get all the wedding fuss and how much fun it is to dance on bars.

-If you learn to use the library catalog, you won't have to talk to anyone. What could be better than that? Also, if you are in a hurry, knowing your alphabet helps. And if you have gray hair, it's time to learn it no matter what.

-Why won't my boyfriend take a picture of his hat and send it to me? Why?

I'd like to share a little something I wrote today..

It's January. The snows come down.
Or sideways. Or upways. Or all around.

The rainfalls freeze. The sky is gray.
But still I go to work each day.

I check each book. I shelve each tome.
I long to chuck it and go home.

My lashes droop. My eyelids sting.
I'm mad at every frigging thing.

I want some cocoa and my bed.
I want to rest my weary head.

Or curl up with my yarns & yawns
and watch Top Model marathons.

It's winter! Time to hibernate!
Of course each morning I am late!

This is no time for jobs or chores
outside our insulated doors.

Why won't the world just think like me
and, until spring, just leave me be?


First Impressions

As I previously stated, I am taking classes. Here are my observations, thoughts and predictions for my classes...

Introduction to Financial Accounting: Love the teacher. She's teaching the course under the assumption that we don't know a thing about accounting, so that's good for me. I think I will do well with this class.

American Government: The teacher is... interesting. Not in a bad way. Just different. He's from Canada. I think this class will be a bit of a challenge because I'm having a hard time remembering anything about government. And most of these kids just took government so it's fresh in their minds. And there's a kid in there that's 15 and is horribly obnoxious. Comments on everything. It's very distracting.

Sociology: I just took my first class last night. First of all, it's a 3 hour class (once a week) so it's kind of tedious. And there's a ton of homework. We have to write at least 1 paper a week. Also, classes are Monday nights and the work is due Friday night (by e-mail), so there's not a lot of time. And I suck at writing papers. But, given all of that, the teacher is hilarious and I really like him, so hopefully it won't be as bad as I think.

So, basically... Wish me luck.

I have a case of the Mondays

Arrgh! I really, really cannot stand my job anymore. Let me fix that: The job is fine. I hate all the patrons and most of my coworkers. And I will quit just as soon as I have another plan.

Anyone want to help me come up with another plan? I enjoy reading, being alone, watching Top Model and tickling Skip until he squeals. Anything in there a job description?

I'm going back to school! Yeah!

I signed up for classes at Owens Community College. Accounting, American Government and Sociology. I start this Friday. Who's excited? I am!
