Random Tuesday – Torn between so many things


Stacy Uncorked
  • The Master by Kresley Cole is out today and, having read the first seven chapters that she spoiled earlier, I cannot stop reading now.
  • But I have student conferences from nine to ten and about sixty papers to grade, as well as two letters of recommendation to get through. Ugh! Why can’t I just read all day? It’s dark and rainy and the perfect condition for couch lounging, blankets, tea, and this here book.
  • Since this is RANDOM Tuesday, I want to hearken back to Friday, where the younger kids had their V-Day parties. Isaac’s valentines never made it home. He said he ‘”lost them” but I’m guessing he ate all the candy and threw the paper away. Meanwhile, the majority of kids in Dakota’s class are only children so their gifts were straight off Pinterest: printed little tags with pun-ny statements. I taped rubber bracelets to hologram pet valentines that Isaac picked out. Welcome to three kids everyone!
  • A bunch of people I know and one of my good friends all went and saw stupid Fifty Shades on Sunday. I saw it on Facebook. I am not mad I didn’t get an invite; I have probably been so vocal over my hatred of it they figured I wasn’t going. But what it reminded me is how repressed some of them are. They’ll giggle and chatter on about BDSM and what little they know of it and probably wish their husbands paid them that much attention. Ok, that was mean. But still… UGH.
  • I bit my lip the other day at lunch and now it is all irritated. I used to get mouth sores from stress all the time but the multivitamin has quelled that. But if I bite the inside of my mouth, I will get some kind of sore. It’s super irritating!
  • There’s this cool thing our local “museum” (i.e. natural preserve type zoo) does where you register to go at night and see the animals then. It sounds awesome but it’s this Saturday and the menfolk will be camping. Since I will be alone (save Baby, asleep) I’d like to do something for me. Like, something selfish and guilt-pleasure-ish. Secretly hoping Magic Mike is on TV and I can watch it on mute. LOL. I don’t care if it’s bad; they’re so pretty.
  • Well, let’s move onto the Tuesday Chat prompt

Dance like no one is watching. Who are you when no one is watching?

 

 

 

Funny that this should be the prompt, as I kind of already mentioned. I’m a geek when I’m alone. I want to watch something on TV that I love, like Batman or Bones or Hobbit and nerd out over it. I’m a bookworm and a romantic and a cup of hot coffee under the blankets type. But I’m also the crank up Luke Bryan and get my house clean type. I’m introspective; I’ll write in my journal and try to analyze what is going on in my life and how I feel about it. When I find myself alone, I like to stop and really think about my life. With three kids and a very busy schedule, it’s really nice sometimes to slow down and be quiet… and think. coffee-and-writing

  1. OMG – I think you are me!! Ha.
    I would much rather geek out over The Hobbit (hello Richard Armitage and Luke Evans!) than go see 50 Shades of (Abuse) Grey. I know some loved that book – and probably the movie; but I just can’t get down with something that glorifies the control and manipulation of a young women by and older man. The sex doesn’t bother me; it’s his treatment of her in ALL aspects of her life.
    So yeah, since I haven’t seen Magic Mike yet – let’s go with that one instead! 🙂

    1. There are so many better books about BDSM out there with men who treat the women much better. I just don’t see why everyone got so caught up on that one. And yeah, Richard Armitage ::swoon::

  2. Hey, I’m amongst good friends since I’m a geeky dork. 🙂

    I took the easy way with Valentine’s and ordered them from Oriental Trading Company – both kids have more than 25 kids in their classroom, so anything homemade this year was NOT happening. 🙂 Little Dude did the same thing Isaac did – though he did bring home his Valentine’s, he made sure to eat all the candy before coming home.
