Nothing much to say about today...the bike ride to work at 6:20 am was FREEZING. I made myself a hot choc as soon as I got there. That and some still-warm asiago cheese torn off the asiago bagels- to die for.
Singing Bee is probably (aside from Gossip Girl) the best new show on TV. Tuesday nights are the best because Barbie, Clare, David and I watch Jeopardy and Wheel (as usual) but the game shows don't end there- Singing Bee with Joey FAT ONE is on after!! Last night was the Halloween episode, Fat One dressed up as Dracula. The contestants had to sing the lyrics to Halloweenish songs too- like, Monster Mash, Thriller, Born to be Wild....etc. It was great.
In other news, the old man in Yoga farted yesterday. Really loud. Hilarious.
Tonight we're going to drink Orange Boones martini's and watch the Mary Kate and Ashley Halloween movie to celebrate. If there are any good parties, we may go...any excuse to wear the turtle one more time. Hopefully we get trick-or-treaters!
GOD, i am incredibly boring. sorry!

The siblings (and Anne) are discussing, over email, the Kay/Fitzpatrick wedding. I offered these dress options.
UGH, I just went to Oprah.com to see what today's show is- what a disappointment. Cindy Crawford and her husband show us how they live. BORRR-RING. God, and yesterday it was ANOTHER Dr.Oz show. I am SO over Dr.Oz.
After Yoga I'm going to make a foil dinner. I've been looking forward to it all day.
Here's a funny video for ya.
I love how the news anchor calls it a "disgusting, gross, vile stench." HA! How many adjectives do you need to say "we think poop is gross but it's just a really slow news day."
I'm going to go take a bath now. BYE!
P.S. I read this yesterday:
It was pretty good and a very fast read (like an hour maybe). I saw Sherman Alexie talk last year at Gonzaga and he was hilarious.
He grew up in Spokane and went to GU for a couple years.

What an exciting weekend!! On Friday night Scotty and I went to 30 Days of Night that Josh Hartnett vampire movie. It was your typical bad but good scary movie. Like usual, the best part was eating popcorn. Popcorn really is just soooo good.
We woke up Saturday morning and each had a bunch of missed calls (we hadn't turned our phones back on after the movie). Scotty's were from his friend who was calling from the hospital after he got his arse kicked at a party. Mine were from every member of my family, including Francie, who left me a message saying she and Bobby got ENGAGED!! Of course, I focused this news on myself, tearing up and telling everyone that I was "going to be a sister-in-law!" Seriously this is SUCH exciting news. Clare thinks it's going to have a domino effect and everyone will start getting married. Let's hope so. Weddings are so fun.
Saturday afternoon we went to the Coug game and watched them beat UCLA for their first PAC-10 win! I was extremely cold for the first quarter until I bought a $3 hot tea (expensive but WORTH IT).
That night we went to the Halloween party, which was fun, and then we went home and watched The Fugitive and ate popcorn. The perfect weekend.
This video inspired Clare to be younglifey, born-again Christian for Halloween. I went to the mall with her yesterday because there are TWO, not one but TWO Christian Supply stores there. She got a pooka shell & cross necklace, a bracelet that says "God is awesome", cross earrings, and a button that says "God's girl." Just being in the store made me feel uneasy. Jesus starin' at ya from every angle. There was a shirt that said "Jesus died for MySpace in Heaven." wow.
I'm going to be a turtle for Halloween because I wanted a costume that was easy to figure out- nothing too conceptual. I want people to look at me and be like "that girl's a turtle." So, I covered a saucer sled with green felt and bought a green turtleneck and beanie. It's a turtle for suretle. heehee.
I'm going to Pullman tomorrow evening. Yay! I love Scotty's house because it's small, cozy and there are tons of things covering the walls. Scotty says he and James were going for the "Shennanigan's look" There's a big Halloween block party down there Saturday night and I'm excited to strut my turtle stuff. Scotty's going to be a "ceiling fan"- his costume is a shirt that says "Go Ceilings!!" and a foam finger. Get it? Get it? clever.
My new favorite tv show of this year is Gossip Girl. The Foleys have been talking about these books for years, saying they're the best thing since SVH Senior Year, but I never got around to reading them. Now, I won't have to. They've been made into a show that airs Wednesdays at 9 on the CW.
