dd, it's amazing edition

*It's amazing that making good-looking sugar cookies can be so darn tricky sometimes.

*It's amazing that high schoolers (both boys and girls) straighten their hair during class, and also groom their eyebrows.

*It's amazing that Jiffy Lube can advertise one price and then have the service end up costing triple the amount advertised.

*It's amazing that a teacher's swivel chair can become so.incredibly.disgusting. Seriously, how do those stains get there?! What are those stains?!

*It's amazing how one dumb idea can run rampant among all age groups of the public school system. Watch the Ellen clip...it's actually pretty funny, and is exactly how I feel about the whole thing.

*It's amazing how terrible my diet has become.

*It's amazing that the holiday season(s) are coming upon us.

*It's amazing that my life and, subsequently, these posts consist of nothing but teaching, eating, and watching movies. Sorry.

dd, monday edition

*Seriously, teachers need to start getting sick. Seriously.

*I got the best deal today...this shirt (except it's off-white with pale blue stripes, not white) for $2.59. That's right, TWO DOLLARS AND FIFTY-NINE CENTS! I have to admit I'm pretty lucky when I shop at my go-to Banana. And the tie is much cuter when it's in the back.

*I really like shopping...clothes, groceries, office supplies, random gifts, etc. It doesn't even have to be for myself; I am frequently my mother's personal shopper. It's fun. How do I make that my career?

*I made homemade brownies today. Yum.

*It was a gorgeous fall day today. I love gorgeous fall days.

*The more time I have on my hands, the more OCD I get.

*I think I'm essentially done with my Christmas shopping. Maybe.

*The Sondre Lerche pandora radio station is putting out some good old-timey-jazzy music tonight.

dd, insomnia edition

*I hate it when I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot fall back asleep...for no reason. I'm tired, I want to fall asleep, I've tried to fall asleep, but it's just not coming.

*I love the sound of rain when I am inside and cozy.

*I've been thinking a lot about the origin of phrases lately; not sure why. Like, who coined certain phrases, slang or colloquialisms? I know nowadays entertainment drives a lot of new words/sayings, but did it way back when? I dunno...just something I think about.

*Don't ask me why, but whenever I hear/say/read the word "insomnia," my mind immediately starts singing Rhianna's hit song, "Disturbia." It's a really annoying reflex, if you will.

*I ate some good fries last night. There are a lot of crappy fries out there, so it will be helpful to know that Manzana's in downtown LO has good fries.

*I like it when I have things to do.

*Technology amazes me.

*One thing that would make my life so much easier would be if my hair could look good if I just let it air dry. What a blessing that would be.

*Dry throat = annoying.

*I think I will wear a scarf tomorrow (today). Yay!

*While Cookies 'n' Cream will always be a classic favorite, I really am enjoying the Dreyer's Butterfinger flavor. Click on the link and apparently you can see if it's stocked in a store near you!

*Teachers need to start getting sick. Or taking personal days.

*I've started watching Season 1 of Friday Night Lights. It's pretty good. The girl that's on it looks a loooooooot like the girl from Gossip Girl, though, and it's getting me all confused.

*I wore a scarf for the first time this week. Smiley face.

*Don't get me wrong, I love simplicity, but sometimes I wish that my life was a tad bit more exciting than it is. And, you know, exciting good. Not exciting stressful. Or not exciting drama. Just...exciting. Like, I'm going on a Hawaiian vacation exciting. That would be nice.
