sweet niblets

first, i have to apologize for that stupid title. if you have people under 12 living in your house you might realize that hannah montana says sweet niblets; and, while we don't watch much hannah these days (thank jeebus; though billy ray's hair looks soooo much better now) and i mostly can't stand that show, that phrase is stuck in my head. don't worry, i don't actually say it out loud. as if.

tonight the girl had an orchestra performance at school and i must say i heard much improvement from their first performance earlier this year. i was so proud. my girl rocks.

however tonight, the boy got out the electric guitar and was practicing on one side of the room and the girl was practicing the viola on the other side and i really thought i was going to lose my mind for a split second. whatareyagonnado though because they do need to practice.

oddly enough, despite what is a solidly craptastic work week i am mostly unstressed. our big meeting thursday is a pointless effort in futility. we're spinning our wheels to justify our jobs to a corporate suit that couldn't care less. i almost feel like laughing at the stress levels in our office because it's like everyone is walking around like it's the end of the world. i just don't care any more. and? the corporate suit is ALL about the internet. forget print media, everything should be on the web. well, yes, some stuff, but depending on your industry this just isn't the case. and now we are twittering for god's sake, for work. i could just hurl. and they are considering making us set up face libre pages. omg. like i need that right?

non sequitor--so i mentioned in the last post that i hate movie remakes, though hotch did mention some that were good---freaky friday (i heart the jamie lee curtis version) and parent trap (love me some dennis quaid). but generally, i hate remakes. and? i hate useless sequels. grease 2? omg, that was so fucking lame i would crawl in a hole if i were michelle pfeiffer. you can't make grease 2! what were they thinking. i think there should be a limit on how many sequels something can have. like rocky. or rambo. or friday the 13th.

Hi there how are you? I was looking through your blog and found it interesting and wanted to leave you a comment.

I have an invitation for you to come and visit my art blog here in San Diego Southern California. I started this blog in an attempt at finding a creative way to deal with life on life's terms. I hope you will stop by and become friendly...

I think that you may enjoy the various labels and music videos I design for my art blog, hope to see you here soon and take care :)

Seems you have a new friend ^.

That is funny you say that about Grease 2...I have a good friend and that is her VERY ABSOLUTE favorite movie.

Oh, sweet, sweet Dennis Quaid. Sigh.

I'm glad to hear that you're removed from the work thing. I mean, you're right - there's nothing you can do, it's ridiculous, and whatever happens, happens. When I was working at my last job, it was like that, with everyone freaking out, and after awhile, I just didn't give a crap. There's only so long you can maintain that level of stress, people.

We don't watch Hannah, TG, but we are full-time Suite Life right now. It's OK.

that would be so funny if WORK forced you to get on facebook. ha!

jesse--hello and welcome : )

hotch--you are kidding right? grease 2 is actually someone's fave movie? omg.

astarte--sigh, dennis is so dreamy. as far as the stress goes, someone actually made a comment today about the fact that i wasn't stressed out like everyone else. i found that amusing. we used to watch suite life too. the kids waffle back and forth--icarly; drake & josh (drake would be my boyfriend if i were..you know, 20 yrs younger) and zoe 101.

broad--i will have a lot of issues if i am MADE to get on facelibre for work. srsly.

My favorite remake - Cheaper by the Dozen. Steve Martin is awesome. And Cheaper by the Dozen 2, is ok. They need to stop there though.

And I agree with you on Freaky Friday and Parent Trap!
