Wondering about this new little app from iPhone. Practicing my coolness with blogging off the site. WordPress, you’ve done it again! Good stuff.

{{{{skipping off to check to see how it looks online}}}}


That is my goofy dog Chet, and yeah, I posted that from my iPhone.  UUber coolness!!

  • If you aren’t convinced yet, Razzdoodle, go and get one.  Tout de suite!  I have last year’s model, but just updated everything.  Man, this is one thing I missed while I was gone…blogging.  I had to stay connected via the internet, but now with the app, I’m sorry, it’s just great.  Yeah, I’m geeky this way.
  • I’ve spent the better part of three days with customer service, reps, technicians…all trying to get the Internet, TV and Telephone to work.  We were offline yesterday, so I baked Peanut Butter/Choc chip cookies from scratch.  My Mother-In-Law brought me eggplant and tomatoes, so I made fresh tomato sauce for eggplant parmesean.  Essentially, it was like the old days.  The TV didn’t work, so the boys tore around town on their bikes, and we ended up out for dinner and buying School Supplies.  Yes, I capitalized that.  In our area, school starts August 6th, but they go to private school, so it starts August 20.  I wanted to make sure that they had a good selection.  Target?  Yeah, they had enough.
  • I ran.  Tuesday, after 10 days of Bass Lake and laying around with Fudge Buckets, etc., I finally ran.  It felt wonderful.  With the Susan B Anthony only a few weeks away, I had to get the mojo on.  I stopped training for the Half in November, but will start up again after the next 5K.  There is a boredom factor there, and so I just ran.  (PS-I got a running skirt at Target, and they suck.  They do.  I felt all weird with that fabric across my legs.  I’m old school, gimme some leggings.   I already pre-ordered my SBA one for the run, so I’ll just wear it around.  Cute, but not functional for me.)

My top three songs:

1) I Kissed A Girl:  Katy Perry

2) Sexbomb:  Tom Jones

3) All Your Reasons: Matchbox 20

This seemed to be a themed run, complete with the Dating Game Theme Song (Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass) [note, it’s really called WHIPPED CREME], School’s Out, by Alice Cooper, and UB40, I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.  Anyone see a pattern here?  It was all good.  Ended the run with The Boss, Born to Run.  Only 2.7 miles for 30 minutes, but I was happy.

  • Two weeks left of my summer vacation.  God only knows what’s in store for me this year.  The Supt of, as my friend CTG aptly names places, I shall try this.  Let’s call this the District to the East.  I’m sorry, that’s all I’ve got.  Anyway, the District to the East decided not to give me full Counseling years on my contract, thus removing 4-5K on the salary scale that they originally intended.  I’ve been going back and for with the Personnel Supt., who really didn’t know if it had been done before…giving all certificated years (yes, in every district where I’ve worked).  When I said I didn’t know if I could work there, she became irate.  Word on the street is that she will go after a teacher’s credentials if they break a contract.  Yikes.  I’m still waiting on the word.  I believe I’m correct, since the place I’ll be working has some counseling issues for their students.  I’m teaching English in a Continuation School this fall.  More to come on that later.  I’m waiting to see, yet again, how this fleshes out for me.
  • The Stranger, by Billy Joel  Oh my.  1977.  I met my current husband that year, so I was a tad emotional last night.  All that aside, Billy Joel is the 70s to me.  Drinking, Sorority house, Millerton Lake, Fresno State.  (I also bought Bon Jovi, Lost Highway, and Coldplay, Viva La Vida…I usually download, but wow, there is something to be said for the real disk)  My goodness.  Maybe my mood had to do with the next bullet. 
  • My oldest son finally had to call a family meeting last night.  He said we were all cranky because the phones & TV were out.  He ran the meeting, wanting to make sure everyone was able to talk.  Gymnotes #2, in true fashion, kept looking at the scrolling pics on the computer, and Gymnotes #1 kept trying to get him back on track.  I love family meetings.  The only rule?  We tell the truth.

  1. I must be the only person that find’s their running skirts OK. I’ve read about a couple other ladies not loving them either. Maybe I like the feel of those little shorts (they put underneath) in my butt and crotch? 😛

  2. I *heart* my iPhone. Could not live without it.

    It’s fun using lyrics for post titles – thanks for the comment and the credit 🙂
