blog tagging is cooler than vlog tagging...trust me

it's time. I've been tagged by StephHasArrived and she "begged" me to do a blog that told 5 random facts most people probably don't know about me. Being the generous nerdfighter I am, I’ve accepted her challenge and so it begins....



1) of the most random facts I could think of...

-When i set alarm clocks or microwave or other timing mechanisms,

i have the weird tendency to apply obscure numbers. For example, instead

of 1minute and 30secs for the…

New Semester La La La

There's a lot of people who have spares in the same block as me, but only a select few that I actually want to spend time with. So for the last two days, I've been hanging out with TKH; they're all nice enough...T's a totally sweety, and H is funny. It's just K that I've got a problem with, since she can be so incredibly self involved. And as a group? They've got total middle school mentallity. Lots of glances, raised eyebrows, giggles and conversations…

In Which the Mystical Transcendence of Oneness is Enjoyed, and the Incomparable Jewel of Wisdom is Hoped For.

My son is walking. Little steps, but it's happening. And it's unbelievably amazing. And sometimes a little bittersweet, because my father has been dead since 1991 (my senior year in high school), and Jack will never know his grampa. This fact has altered my behavior as of late. I've been eating more healthy snacks. Dessert tonight was some yogurt. And I've been eating more veggies/fruits. Exercising more.



Sometimes I feel part of something bigger than myself. Connected in an invisible… Continue

Many Happy and Not So Happy Returns

I love nights like tonight...when all the primary results are coming in and there's tons of analysis. I've been glued to Fox News virtually the entire night. I started watching CNN, but then one of their talking heads insulted Georgia in a way that really ticked me off (I grew up there). Granted, another talking head defended the state...I wonder if guy #1 gets out of town okay (after all, CNN is IN Atlanta).



I have memories that go back over 20 years of watching nights like this. My… Continue

Happy voting, US neighbours!

As a Canadian I'd just like to say thank you to every American who exercises their right to vote.



Former Canadian PM, Pierre Trudeau once said, "Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it… Continue

Someone out there wants to know 5 awesome facts about me... SOOOOOO here it goes.

By the way I hate these things.

Send me surveys or something, I hate coming up with my own facts >.br>


The Fabulous Five Facts of Cineris



1) I never wear jeans on Sunday. I'm not religious or anything, but I feel that Sundays are for lounging. So you will see me in no more than sweatpants and possibly a sweatshirt on Sundays.



2) I LOVE the color red. I don't know why, this… Continue

Guess what? I'm not blind or deaf!

I am not feeling spiffy today.



Anyway, this blog comes in two parts: Part 1, I'm not blind or deaf (aka hearing and sight screening)! Part 2: French Class



Part 1: I'm not blind or deaf!



I had to get my hearing and sight tested. Yes. My school makes the freshmen get their hearing and sight tested. So when do they decide to pull us out of class? In second period, so I could miss the horrible French class? Or perhaps in third period so I could skip the really boring,… Continue

More photos for LAly99 and Flat Lucas Update

Today, two projects collide! My mother raised me to be a gentleman and a gentleman does not refuse the request of a lady (well within reason, let's not get carried away here). So, today is part two of what may become a once a week or perhaps bi-weekly photo blog. I'm not really sure yet. Perhaps we can start an exhibit of some sort. I know I can and probably should just add my photos like everyone else but what can I say I like this format. So, I think that if anyone wishes to join in *looks…

using it.

Voting Day!

I love voting!! I get all happy and sentimental and patriotic and love everyone I see at my polling place. It doesn't matter if they are voting the same way I am - they are participating in democracy, and this is a wonderful thing.



I could have gotten an absentee ballot, in fact we thought we would have to, since my husband had a training in Southern California originally scheduled for this week, but we ended up rescheduling that and getting to vote in person. There is…

5 Facts

Oh, man. First blog here. A HISTORIC EVENT INDEED.



Okay, so Steven tagged me for the five fact meme thing that's been going around YouTube mostly, but has now managed to arrive at Nerdfighters.ning. Awesome.

Without further ado....



1) Pretty much all my close friends know this about me, but I'm intensely obsessed with Disneyland. Like... I go, on average, at least three times a year. My parents are obsessed with it too, as well as my best friend's family, so we usually go… Continue

5.) Three Monks took a vow a silence but agreed that they can take turns saying one sentence a year.

The first year rolls around and at breakfast monk #1 throws down his spoon and says: I hate oatmeal!

The second year rolls around and at breakfast Monk #2 says: Well, I quite like it.

At long last it's the third year and Monk #3's turn, he says: I’m sick of…
