Archive for The Office
Well, I feel a little better now. Last night (after falling asleep with Becca in her room) I watched a new episode of 30 Rock that got DVR-ed (OK, I’m not sure if that’s a word, but I’m going with it). It’s been a few weeks since I watched some new television. I’m surprised how much I missed the little escape it brings me from the millions of thoughts bouncing around in my head.
I really don’t watch too much tv. I’ll watch True Blood when it comes back (I think in the Summer). I watch How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory on Monday nights and The Office and 30 Rock on Thursdays. If I happen to watch live, I’ll get up and clean while the commercials are on. And I’m usually doing something on the laptop at the same time.
On to other things, Becca is going to a little cheer leading camp tomorrow. It’s a fundraiser for the High School cheerleaders. They take kids K-5 (K and First in the A.M. and 2-5 in the afternoon) teach them a cheer and give them a t shirt. Then they get to perform their cheer all together at a basketball game this week. For $30, I thought she would have some fun. I’m interested to see how it all goes.
Oh, and to get back to some boring, serious, political stuff…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that a judge told Dan Onorato that he couldn’t use the money from the drink tax for anything other than mass transit. Finally, Score one for the restaurant owners! Of course, he’s going to be a big ol’ weenie about lowering it down below 7%. Which irks me. He just can’t seem to be a big enough person to just admit that he screwed up and fix it. In fact, if he did just admit to his screw up and fix it, he may win back some votes later on down the road. But because of his pride (or male ego, or stubbornness…whatever) he won’t. So now his budget is screwed, and it looks something like this:
ROCK DAN ONORATO HARD PLACE
Well, enjoy the snow that they’re calling for this weekend! If you live in Pittsburgh, I’m sure you already made your mad dash for your milk and bread ‘cuz you’ll be stuck in your house for a whole whopping 24 hours.
I also went to the Halloween Parade at the Primary school today. So darn cute. Then (finally) trick-or-treating tonight. You know, I totally love Halloween, but I’m ready to take the decorations down and call it a day.
Did I mention that Tony went skydiving yesterday? Well, he did, and he thought it was incredible and awesome. I said that I will go on the next trip (when it’s a bit warmer). If you want to see what it’s like, you can see the video of our bartender Nikki skydiving for her first time.
Chloe is ready to go trick-or-treating right now. She really doesn’t understand that we have to wait, and that there really isn’t anybody home right now!
Haven’t watched The Office or 30 Rock from last night yet. That’s what I’ll do tonight after the chickies go to bed. I hope you all have a great day!!!!!
Well, time really DOES fly when you have 8 million things going on in life. So sorry I haven’t written. Mom came up for a visit, running the restaurant, doing my online business, doing kindergarten homework, sometimes sleeping. OH, and the new seasons of my fav shows have started. I have found time for the shows that I like to DVR. They are, in no particular order, True Blood (HBO),The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Three and a Half Men, and new to the line up, The Big Bang Theory. New episodes of 30 Rock start next Thursday, and that will make it on the list too. the beautiful thing about DVR is that I can watch it whenever I want to and skip the commercials. Now I just have to get it in my bedroom, so I can watch before I go to sleep!!
So, here’s what motivated me to actually write today. Another funny little Becca story. Last night we were doing homework. She had to glue pictures (or draw pictures) of things that started with the letter ‘A’ onto a paper. Her little brain was searching and searching for ‘A’ words. She’s sounding it out ‘aaaaaa.’ And then she looks at me with her big, beautiful eyes. “Mom, I can’t say that. It’s a swear word.” Of course I know what she’s thinking. So I tell her “Well, go ahead and say it. Just this once. Because if it’s at least a word that starts with ‘A’ I’ll be happy that you figured another word out.” Sh she says it “OK…ass.” Then she starts giggling. But the kicker is what she asked next. “Mom, can you draw a picture of a butt on my paper?” Laughing, I tell her that I didn’t think Mrs. Z would appreciate a picture of a butt.
I just went out and bought bags and bags of Halloween candy and hid it from
myself the kids. There’s the preschool party (bags of treats for 11), then there’s the kindergarten party (smaller bags of treats for 19), and then there’s trick-or-treat. The really bad thing about all of this is that I’m going to get all of that candy back through my kids. Ugh.
I’m also gearing up for the Halloween Bash at Downey’s House. Gotta finish getting my costume ready today. I think I have the tricycles for the tricycle races, got the ingredients for the pudding shots, got some spooky drink garnishes. Now I just have to make it through tomorrow. Got a nice 12 hour day ahead of me. Oh, and it’s also Anita’s (the co-owner) birthday tomorrow, so I have to go and get her a little surprise cake.
I have lots of thoughts racing around this crazy head of mine, and I really will get better at posting them. And all of the stories. OH, I just thought of another one. Gotta remember to talk to you about Chloe and the color black. See ya later!
Um, I just took an online quiz about which character are you from The Office. I was poking around, seeing what the next episode was going to be. (by the way, the name of it is “Did I Stutter.”)
Anyway, here’s what I got for my result:
OK, I just finished watching The Office, and I loved it. But I just had to say that when Jim pulled that ring out for Pam, I got all smiley and happy. Yes, I realize that this is a FICTIONAL television show. But how sweet. And then, their little scene towards the end was cute, too. Down on one knee…my heart stopped for Pam. Tying his shoe? Hysterically laughing. OK, just had to share.
