To Buy or not to buy. Or to buy.

Well, it's the time of the semester when necessary purchases to benefit the career must be made. I like to pretend that I'm rediculously wealthy when making such purchases.
What? I need something else? No problem. I don't even need to look at the price tag.
Why, yes, you may call me Miss Moneybags.

Which one, which one? I need an mp3 recorder to record my lessons, recitals, etc.... Any words of wisdom from the masses?

The most disgruntled.....

(Do let me preface this post by saying that I actually am a really nice person... I am...)


I always take the utmost care when parallel parking.
I never hit the bumpers around me.
I don't want to damage my own car or other's cars.
Today, I expertly parked in a small space between a new Corolla, and a new Lexus, and went to class.
I came out to find that some jerk has parked INTO my bumper, leaving me absolutely no way to get out of my space. I've got about 8 inches in front of me.
I'm in a two-hour parking spot.
I could get a ticket if I stay here.
I have class in an hour and 10 minutes.
I would just go and get lunch, but it I leave and then he moves his car and my bumper is dented, I will not be happy...

This guy had better come move his car and better have a good reason for leaving his car so obviously touching my bumper.

My bumper had better not be dented in...

Spirit come.... spirit come.... Annie, be a nice person... be a nice person.... be stuck in your car but be a nice person.....

Just for funsies

Time to compare and contrast.
I shall be a diva now and give my own brutal and biased, yet educated opinion.
Without using my words.

The Song: "O Mio Babbino Caro" from Puccini's Gianni Schicchi
The Competitors: Renee Fleming, Sarah Brightman, and America's Got Talent's Jackie Evancho.

By observing the body language, sound, and shapes of the mouth, and facial expressions, you should be able to tell which is the superior singer, and which one Jackie Evancho is trying to be. I hope someone rescues that little girl before it's too late.

Wait, I said I wasn't gonna use my words....

(WHAT is with the arms?!?!?!)

All my Devotion was Emotion

I really like this poet.

Psalm 139

Oh, Lord, You have searched me and known me.

You know when I sit down and when I rise up;

You understand my thoughts from afar.

You scrutinize my path and my lying down,

and are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

Even before there is a word on my tongue,

behold, O Lord, You know it all.

You have enclosed me behind and before,

and laid Your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

It is too high, I cannot attain to it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?

Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend to heaven, You are there.

If I make my bed in Sheol, behold You are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn,

if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

even there Your hand will lead me,

and You right hand will lay hold of me.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,

and the light around me will be night,"

even the darkness is not dark to You,

and the night is as bright as the day.

Darkness and light are alike to You.

For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother's womb.

I will give thanks to You,

for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works,

and my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from You,

when I was made in secret,

and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;

and in Your book were all written the days

that were ordained for me,

when as yet there was not one of them.

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

How vast is the sum of them!

If I should count the, they would outnumber the sand.

When I awake, I am still with You.

O that You would slay the wicked, O God;

depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.

For they speak against You wickedly,

and Your enemies take Your name in vain.

Do I not hate those who hate You, O Lord?

And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?

I hate them with the utmost hatred;

they have become my enemies.

Search me, O God, and know my heart;

Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

and see if there be any hurtful way in me,

and lead me in the everlasting way.

My marbles.....

... I'm losing them....

It happens most Sunday's that, while in church as the sermon starts, my mind starts going crazy with things that I need to do. So I've started jotting down a quick list of "To Do's" as the sermon starts, and sticking the paper in my purse so I don't have to think about them till after the service is over. And as little things jump in my head to distract me, I just quickly write them down so I can address them later and free my brain of them. I am just so spiritual like that, you know.

Well, something popped into my head yesterday right off the bat, as the sermon started, so I wrote it down. But the thing is: I have no idea what that thing is.

"- E-mail Hannah"

Sounds simple enough, right? Well, I would have to know a Hannah closely enough to have her e-mail, which I don't. Off my head right now, I only know 2 Hannahs, neither of which do I need to e-mail, or even make contact of any kind....

So not only am I losing my mind, but this is going to drive me crazy until I figure out who Hannah is.

Hannah, if you're reading this, and you're thinking, "Annie you dumb girl, it's me, and thanks a lot for remembering me," at least you can know that I had every intention of e-mailing you yesterday at about 11:15 am.

The Big Break

Hello world.

Guess what?

I'm officially logged out of facebook for the remainder of January.

It might kill me.

But, by golly, I'm gonna do it.

So here's to chats with good friends face to face,
being uber productive and purposeful with my time,
and living real life to the fullest today,
and at least for a month.

Who knows,
maybe I'll like living away from the cyber world enough to pick up a new hobby or 8,
make a few new friends,
learn about 4 hours worth of music,
make a dent in that reading list of mine....

the list goes on and on.

Oh yeah,
but to compensate for the dejectedness that I will undoubtedly feel,
I shall keep up my blog a bit more,
and let you know how I'm getting on.

Tout d'Amour!

Annie :)
