earth hour

yesterday from 830 to 930, patrick and i loved the earth a little bit and did our part to save electricity.
this is how we spent our time:

we lit candles (woo woo!)
we finished baking cookies (i know, i know - this is using power. but we haven't used our oven all week, and it only went into earth hour for ten minutes)
i did the dishes
patrick read to me by candlelight
we went for a romantic walk under the sparkliest sky imaginable

it was a fun earth hour. three cheers!

i don't want to mark!

i just wanna bang on the drum all day.
i've been procrastinating ALL DAY LONG!
i have sooooo much marking to do and i just don't want to do it.
ugh.

this is what i did instead:

read a book.
napped.
talked on the phone.
creeped on your facebook photos.
picked out a pen to mark with.
made fries.
marked a few essays while they cooked.
ate the fries.
cleaned up.
read some more.
ate yogurt.
read some more.
played idly with my spoon and empty yogurt cup.
finished my book.
checked my email.
read lame articles on msn.com.
prowled on your blogs.
complained about marking ...

janelle labelle ... putting the pro in procrastination since 1982.

bubbles

i love refilling the soap pump in my bathroom. after i've poured the soap, i squeeze the air out of the refill bag before i close it up. it bursts out a swirl of bubbles and makes me smile.
i wish marking was this much fun.

heidi does shats

kmac came to the city and i got to see her! heid picked me up and we went to starbucks for drinks and laughs and admiring glances at kmac's new motorcycle jacket.
which i apparently can't say. it came out something like "i love your motel-cyker jacket." blagh.
also, i can't hear.
heidi told me she was doing ... well, i thought she said shats. i was surprised that our friendship had reached that level, until she noticed my disturbed silence and corrected me. stats.
things to work on:
speaking.
listening.
