how many times can you think about the same thing

Friday, May 29, 2009


My mom hatches birds for her second graders every year. It's usually chickens but sometimes she does ducks or pheasants, or, like in this case, quail. While they incubate for a few weeks she has the students do lots of projects and read lots of books and look at lots of pictures of fuzzy little chicks. I always tell her that I'd really like it if one year, after a month of anticipating the arrival of their fluffy new class pets the kids had to watch in horror as a bunch of snakes and lizards hatched from the eggs instead.
maybe next year.
probably not.

larger than a bald eagle

I've been going my whole life being able to sleep at night thinking that these bugs only live in Africa and other places I will never be.
wrong.
dead wrong.
look what I found on my walk home. After I took this picture I kicked the bug with my shoe a little bit to see if it was alive. It moved and that was terrifying so I tried to take a video but everytime the bug wasnt being touched it stopped moving. I didnt want to look like a really inhumane person by kicking a bug with my gigantic shoe in a video so I looked around for a stick. While scanning the sidewalk I didnt find any sticks. I did, however, find myself COMPLETELY SURROUNDED by these monsters. So I shrieked and ran all the way home.
like. a. child.

I saw michael from the bls on the train today

You know how people keep a pair of gym shoes in their purse for the commute?
I guess I'm going to have to start bringing a pair of pumps for mine.

My Dreams Came True.

You know how sometimes in job interviews they ask you to describe your dream job? I've never had this happen (or had a job interview) but I've heard that sometimes people ask this and that you should be prepared. My answer is "getting paid as much as possible to stay home and do nothing." I'm guessing that this is the wrong answer. Assuming that option is off the table, my brain rebounds to Clarise - the babysitter in the movie Sleepless in Seattle. I've always agonized over why my babysitting gigs have been so far from this scenario. Why am I not getting paid to just eat takeout, watch racey tv shows and act like a weirdo?
Well anyway, after 7 years of babysitting I got Clarise's job a little bit. For the next month, I'm getting paid to watch an eight year old watch cartoons for nine hours a day. Too bad Tom Hanks isn't involved.
Also, this is exactly what I look like on my way to work.
