Delirious -- World Service
Yesterday I found out that I am going to make even less money this year, due to this that and the other thing. When my boss told me, I thought I was going to break down, right there in front of her, but I held it together. Eventually, I was okay, and I realized that if we really need the money, I could apply to sub on Fridays. With a teaching certificate, I can make pretty good money. So, I am not stressing about it. In the past I would be throwing a hissy fit but, hey, I'm a grown-up now. I've got options. I'm not worried.
So, the Big Brother internet filter is still doing its job, so no "fun" at work. And, yes, when I found out they had a filter up, I went straight to Google and did a image search for nude paintings, both female AND male. AND I took a GOOD, LONG LOOK! Take that, commies!
I am trying to be less slothful at home, and keeping up with the housework as best I can. Weekends have been busy: family pictures, Sesame Street Live, baby dedications, birthdays, you name it. Speaking of birthdays I have one to plan here pretty soon. It's hard to believe he will be 3! He wants to be a firetruck for Halloween. I need to figure out how I am going to do that, but I have a plan. Hopefully it will be cool and he won't be too tramatized. Speaking of trauma, one of our neighbors in the subdivision put up a Halloween display with a lifesized headless horseman on what looks like a dinosaur (I think it's suppose to be a horse skeleton, but it looks like a dinosaur to me) and Ethan covers his eyes when we pass it on our walks. Wow, can't believe the "holiday season" is upon us. Seems like Halloween is the start of it all, I don't know why.
I've been enjoy a few of the new fall shows. "Lost" is now a definate "don't miss" for me. And I like "Veronica Mars," even though I feel a little silly watching it since I am TOTALLY out of the demo group they seem to be shooting for. And, I have to admit that I've watched "Desperate Housewives" a couple times, but I doubt I will follow it regularly. Not that it offends me or anything like that. Maybe it's because they make life look so bleak, but then again I really am enjoying a show centered around a plane crash, so I don't know why it turns me off. Other than that, I am trying to give my all to "Enterprise." I just want it to survive, because I think Captain Archer is the best captain since Picard and I really love sci-fi. I crave it like chocolate and Jane Austen novels. Which reminds me, PBS is going to be airing a reality dating show where the participants will have to "court" one another according to 18th century rules. I'm all aquiver with anticipation.
I have also joined Brian's night game fantasy football league. Do not expect greatness. I am the least competitive person I know, and I know very little about picking winning teams. I've picked the Colts for the last few years just because I like the fact that Peyton Manning finished college before running off to the play professional football. I don't know why that's important to me, it just is. I don't like the fact that college centers around athletic programs. I can't help it. I'm an academic. Anyway, I think I just joined the fantasy league because I'd like to know a little bit about it and understand a little bit why Brian likes it so much, and fantasy baseball just seemed too time consuming.
I admit I am not a sports fan, really, but I really would like to see the Red Sox make it to the world series for my Grandma's sake. She has ties to the team and to the East Coast that go back to the early 1900s, and I would love to see the smile on her face if they beat the Yankees and made it. Of course, I know she would love to see them win the World Series, but I think she would get the most enjoyment out of beating the Yankees. Go Red Sox!
