I was tagged my pal Amanda  to “Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five.”

  • Defense Against the Dark Arts – this is the one I’d take with Amanda.  How amazing would it be to take a class from the Harry Potter books?  Okay, I realize it’s a defence class, but it might help me clean my apartment a little better or something, right?
  • Spanish – this would be useful since all of Steve’s relatives are latin and speak spanish.  Then maybe I could keep up with a conversation in their language once in a while.
  • How to effectively argue – I seriously think this would be useful because when I get into an argument, my voice either gets really high, or kind of loud, and I generally get so flustered I can’t even remember the point I was arguing.
  • Obedience classes – more, more, mooooooore doggie obedience school.  Maybe some kind of a class with Cesar Milan
  • What Not to Wear 101 – I’m not saying I dress badly, in fact, I take careful consideration when I get dressed, which is why I end up owning so many clothes and shoes, but that’s beside the point.  I would take this just to learn how to wear more clothes that would match my body shape.  Hopefully Stacy and Clinton would teach it (from TLC!)
  • Love Smart – c/o Dr. Phil.  Or maybe some other love guru.  I think it’s always good to keep up with maintaining a healthy and loving relationship, so this would likely be on my list forever.  I just want to be a smarter partner to my love than my parents were to each other!

I think those would make my life easier!  Maybe I’ll take “How to get up in the morning without hitting snooze a million times” as well, just for good form.

I tag: Goodboy Norman Featherstone, Katy, and Clover!

Hit me with your best shot

I don’t know about anyone else on this earth, but I can’t get enough of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila.  This is the hottest mess of a show I have ever seen.

Like this shot from last night.  Country boy got all crazy after Tila chose another dude over him to stay, and this guy proceeded to try and beat up dudes, lesbians, the front porch of the house…EVERYTHING.  He was so wrong, but so right to watch. Plus, country dude is an elementary school teacher, or should I say…WAS an elementary school teacher, because who in their right mind would let this guy near another human being ever again??

I don’t know what it is about disasterous shows like that, but holy crap it is just the most entertaining television I have ever seen.

In a few weeks, two of the lesbians get into a fight and one of them tries to rip the other one’s hair out!  What are these people thinking?!  I don’t know, but I know I’m going to keep watching to find out.

 On another note, I was thinking yesterday about the whole technological revolution…

For instance, we are all sitting around, and a lot of us don’t have enough work to do in a day to actually fill an entire day, so what do we do?  We turn to the glorious internet!  We read blogs, we chat to people, we can pretty much do anything because the world is at our fingertips.


Like our moms?  What the hell were they doing to fill all the time?  Was it the emmergence of computers that actually sped up work to a point where we now have enough time left over to surf the internet?  I know typewriters weren’t making things faster…well, exept on the hand-written letter front.  Even then, what the hell were office folk doing in the 60s?!  Were they all just standing around talking?  Were they staring at the wall?

I know at least that my mother currently fills her day with some game called “Bookworm” and likely is also shopping online, but before that, what was she doing?  Is that something I can even ask??

Does anyone have any really old family members they can ask?  I mean, no one wants to get into trouble, so I mean if your grandmother is going to punch you for not finding work to do EVERY MOMENT of your day, I mean, don’t ask.   Someone’s got to know an old person who is still hip with the kids!

Also, I mean, we still DO have the water cooler-esque conversations, but now we have those AND all the time on the internet.  Are we just working a lot less hard because the pace of things are way faster?  I know not everyone in the world is out there reading blogs and stuff, but there sure are a lot of people who are!
