If I had a Million Dollars

Notice there are no pictures of green dresses, monkeys or k-cars in this post.

However, I sometimes have the uncontrollable urge to spend money, similar to the urge to eat a chocolate cake with butter cream frosting....I'm sure many of you have experienced this/those.

New Leather Converse: Jack Purcell edition, origionally $75.00 on sale for $19.99. Boo ya.

After going to the gym last night I decided I needed to get what I call a medicine ball (that's not what Eric says it is). Anyway, it is at my desk, and I am sitting on it as I type. $16.00 TJ Maxx.

Midweight MTS underware from REI. Basically it's a very nice base layer for when I go snowboarding in the 12" of new snow tomorrow. It's very good at "wicking" away moisture for all the Anderson's out there. Origionally $35.00 - 20% off coupon and $12 dividend...$18.10.

And finally mine lieblings: 4 new awesome gobblets from Anthro originally $10.00 each on sale for $3.95. Some nice people come over so we can use them with you!! They make the cool riniging sound when you trace your finger around the edge with water.

Regardless of all this cool stuff I got though, I still miss the fam and wish I were hanging out with all of you this week. I will see you soon though. Loves to all. Wish I had a fur coat...but not a real fur coat, that's cruel.

Man tries to pay bill with spider drawing

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this email conversation. I hope you do too.

Re: No Time to say Hello, Goodbye...

A few comments on the previous post from your roommate:

1) You are a sexy working machine woman. Like some kind of hybrid between Eve (woman), the terminator (machine), a lumberjack (working), and yourself (sexy).

2) I took the liberty of fixing your Comm140 blog link in this post. It was incorrect. That will be $225.00. Or 3 kisses.

3) I particular like your calendar entry on Thursday, March 26: "251 - Reflective Paper - What?" It's very...reflective.

4) I'm glad you used that photo of Annie. When I was composing it, I planned on titling it "Annie and her shadow on a dry Sunday" So that's what it's called: "Annie and her shadow on a dry Sunday."

5) We'll buy you a kick-a computer as soon as yours truly crashes (sans sabotage), regardless of what tax-deductible 0% APR guitars I recently purchased. In the meantime, let me know how I can help you back up your computer so that when it inevitably crashes, it will merely be cause for celebration, not lamentation.

6) On behalf of Sarah, myself and the other 2 people who read our blog, we are very glad you're posting.

No Time to say Hello, Goodbye...

So apparently I'm not doing a very good job telling people about my life. Well today, I had a blog project I had to do for a class (see it here), and I decided it would be a good idea to let everyone know why I have let Eric be the blogger in our fam lately:

1) School in which I teach.
2) School in which I learn.

Teachers love me to substitute for them, and it is kind of hard turning down money, so for the last three weeks, I have been subbing middle school English. This week is spring break. Next week I am subbing PE and the week and a half after that, computers. Then back to subbing English again.

Homework is out of control and here are some pictures to prove it:

This is exactly how my desk looks. It's not that I don't put things away, it's that I use these books frequently, and therefore need to have them close.

Books, Notebooks, Diet Coke to keep me awake.

That's Too Much!

Also, since I have been working so much, this little cutie needs extra attention, taking away from homework time.
And, my computer has been freaking out lately, but since Eric just got a new electric guitar, guess who doesn't get a new computer? Me. Waa Waa.

Now you know why I complain. But, back to homework.

Geeks everywhere rejoice in first flying car

I shared this bit of "industry" news with the rest of my team working on VW. If you grew up watching the Jetsons, you’ve waited for the flying car. Wait no longer.

It transitions from road legal car to airplane is less than 30 seconds. Kinda’ makes the Eos top going down in 25 seconds seem insignificant. Granted, the Eos costs $150K less.

In case you missed the link in the first paragraph again, here it is again. Please use the first one next time. My time is valuable. Thank you.

my new friend.

American Deluxe Stratocaster. (3-tone sunburst, alder Body, rosewood fretboard, 3 noiseless pickups, locking tuning heads, abalone dot inlays, S-1 switch.)

I have a very hard time putting it down. It's been a great object lesson in "the more you know, the more you realize how little you know." I thought I was a guitarist. I'm practically nothing. That's what makes it so fun. The vast space between here and the distant horizon makes me giddy.

More on this later. :)

In the mouth of two or three witnesses...

I've been preaching this for a while. Especially the email etiquette. Get with it people. Click here for the word. And then live it.

cute AND funny.

I've honestly been really busy. Work has been like riding a livid testicle-tied bull 13 hours a day, every day. (This is merely an analogy, for those that just became very excited about my job.) There's been plenty to blog about, and I'm ashamed that's it's been so long since my last post. Adding insult to injury, this post is going to be plagiarized from Franiel's blog. Not even my life. "Things we swear happened (to somebody else)."

Oh well. I'm lame. Let's move on.

This is a new video of my nephew Liam who has just begun to experiment with crawling. Watch it all the way through, because the good stuff happens in the last two seconds.
