there's something to be said for immaturity

sometimes people say "you're only as old as you feel." if that is true, then sometimes i'm 85. however, if we amend the above statement to instead read "you're only as old as you act" then i'll be young forever!!! don't believe me? i offer this slideshow as proof:

see. told ya. it's okay to be jealous, most people are. sidenote: the boogs will probably be young forever too.

"C"s get degrees

i've been about 70% successful at not using the word "just." i think that's pretty good. if i were getting a grade i would have a "C" and i'm good with that.
next task: turn my to-do list into a TA-DAH! list. i have to admit that this wasn't really my idea, but i think it's pretty fabulous so i'm stealing it. wait, does it count as stealing if i don't take all the credit for it?
next next task: turn "have to" into "get to"

too close for comfort

i was talking with a friend who informed me that she and her husband use the same toothbrush. i know you're married and close as can be and all, but i find this completely disgusting. later, i was reading this blog (which i absolutely love and would strongly encourage you all to follow) and it got me thinking about all the things that i absolutely will not do should i ever get married. number one: share a toothbrush...

not counting loan and pool

if i'm ever in a band, we will play this game for every album (minus step one, because you can't rename your band every time you make some new music. that's just ridiculous)

1- go to wikipedia and click on "random article" the first article you get is the name of your band
2- go to quotations page and click "random quotes" the last four or five words of the last quote on the page is the name of your album
3- go to flikr and click "explore last seven days" the third picture will be your album cover
4- put them all together using photoshop or picnik

is it just me or is at the show a really great band name? don't even think about stealing it, i've got dibs

Christmas is awesome part 2

the follow-up blog post as promised in this post.
i'm too lazy to write anything, except to tell you that it was great to see all the family that was here and to say that i had a wonderful holiday. please enjoy these photos instead :)

just jack

so, i know i said i was setting 2 big goals this year, but i set a third one in the wee small hours of the morning. i want to have a better (read: more positive) attitude about life. i was thinking about this goal and about how to break it down into smaller, more manageable parts and i decided that the first thing i need to work on is my phrasing. sometimes i say things that aren't all that negative, but the way i say them is. i want to change that. how? be eliminating particular words and phrases from my vocabulary, starting with "just." just is not a bad word when used in terms of rightness or fairness (as in, king arthur was a just ruler) or in reference to time (as in, that just happened) but we often use in place of "only." this is kid of awful. i mean, it's so limiting and negative without really trying to be. i don't let the kids i work with use this word when they talk about themselves for that very reason, so why is it okay for me to do so? it's not. besides, if we stop thinking about ourselves in terms of just and start thinking in terms of awesome we'd all be a lot happier. that's what i think anyway. so from now on, i'm not just anything, and if you catch me saying that i am, call me on it as loudly and publicly as possible (because you know how i like to make a public scene...)
