My Julius Caesar stick people theater, drawn on the board in my classroom last year. Mostly by me, with some embellishments from students here and there…

Something Embarassing In Your Room

Erm…well, if it’s that embarrassing, I’m probably not going to post it on my blog, now am I?

Favorite movie quote

You can’t really expect me to pick just one, can you? Well, I decided to try and use ones that are things I actually frequently say. Here’s a bunch, in no particular order. I’ll do it interactive-style. Feel free to guess the movie!

“I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.”

“It’s sucking my will to live.”

“Strange things are afoot at the Circle K”

“Baby Talk? That’s not a saying.”
“Oh, but Baby Fish Mouth is sweeping the nation?”

“Surely you can’t be serious?”
“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”

“That word. You keep using it. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Bonus (not movie quotes): two quotes from Mr. Show

“Because life is precious. And God. And the Bible.”

“You don’t know what words mean, do you?”

Something that made you smile today

  • Some of my favorite students winning awards at our underclassmen awards ceremony this morning.
  • A colleague telling me how happy she is that I was hired.
  • My wonderful, sweet, amazing husband telling me how happy he is to be with me. :)

A 10+ year old picture

collin

Me and Jen with country singer Collin Raye at a concert in Myrtle Beach. I’m having trouble remembering what year this was, but the last time we went to Myrtle Beach was 2000, and I don’t think this was that year.

But here’s another one for good measure:

Me and Lisa, Alpha Delta Pi Spring Party, 1994 (I think).

What’s that? You want to see a pic of me in high school?

That’s me going to the prom in 1990. (Yes, I cropped ex bf out of the photo…)

Favorite Board Game

My favorite “classic” board game is Scrabble.

scrabbletiles

I’m also a big fan of Scattergories and Cranium.

I recently played Apple to Apples for the first time, and that’s now on my list of things I need!

Yeah, I kinda lost track there. I’m going to skip to Day 17.

A Childhood Picture

I was somewhere around 4-5 in this photo, which makes this the late 70s. That might be the longest my hair has ever been. ;)

When we were kids, people used to think my friend Jennifer and I were related. I didn’t get it then, but looking at this picture, I can kind of see what they were talking about!

Favorite outfit

I am certain I have no photos of myself in this…but lately, my favorite outfit is a pair of gray sweatpants and a navy blue hoodie.

Apart from that, I just bought this adorable little dress from Land’s End:

Er, I can’t seem to grab the image, so here’s a link.

I got in in navy blue, and last week, I wore it with a  red cardigan. Very cute. :)

Favorite Song

Okay, this one’s just impossible…so I’m going to go with “That, For Me, Is You”  by Jim Boggia, the song Rand and I danced to at our wedding.

First Dance

Favorite Food

Again, I’m not sure I can come up with a single favorite food…so I’m going to post about two of my favorite meals. These are things I will never pass up an opportunity to eat!

#1 Chicken Muglai at Taste of India (or India Gate)

I *always* have it with naan. Sometimes, I get appetizers…I especially like the paneer pakora and alu tikki. Yum…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Indian tea makes a great addition to the meal as well.

#2 Bulgogi (barbecued beef) at Woo Chon Korea House in Williamsville

bulgogi_image_final

I like to get the mandoo gui (dumplings) as an appetizer, even with all the other stuff they bring out!

Favorite Actor

I will probably cheat on many of these, because I have such a hard time narrowing anything like this down to just one choice.

So, there’s this guy…

paul rudd

And this one…

adam baldwin

And I’ve become a huge fan of this one, too.

RobertDowneyJr

And honestly, I could be here all day with this…but here are a few others I can’t go without mentioning:

Victor Garber, Neil Patrick Harris, Matthew Perry, Jason Segel, Alec Baldwin, John C. McGinley, Colin Firth, John Cusack…and I’ll probably remember a whole bunch more two minutes after I post this. :)
