K. Cop

Best movie quote ever? Certainly Top 10. I forgot how amazingly funny Ahhnold's "accent" makes everything sound in this movie. Thanks, random HBO channel.

so much for that

the great vacation blogging aspirations. gone, along with the vacation. i blame the snow. a 12 inch snowstorm in late march will take the wind out of anyone's sails....but i can't totally blame that. for whatever reason my vacation productivity was at a low this break...but springtime pursuits will be at an alltime high. the next 10 weeks should be a whirlwind indeed.

the long and winding post

This gorgeous amaryllis bulb is blooming in my mom's kitchen. Watching the progression of it every day (each shot = one day; last shot = today) has been the sole spring-like highlight of otherwise unspringlike weather. It has been in the 60s and 70s in Saint Louis; 30s and wet here. Melting snow, mucky mud, bare trees and gray gray gray gray skies everywhere. Remind me consistently to have a spring break coin jar throughout the year, so that I can go somewhere else. As much as I love Michigan, February and March are probably the least tolerable months of the year. It makes me so lethargic - yesterday my brother and sister in law spent about 5 hours straight watching Lost, and I spent about 5 hours watching a Harry Potter marathon on abc family. On the bright side, I reconfirmed that Goblet of Fire is my least favorite plot, and Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire are my least favorite movies. I love Order of the Phoenix a lot more than I remember. Blahhhhh.

In honor of my non-existent Irish heritage, and, more importantly, my favorite color.

Vivan Los Viajes

My senior-in-high-school brother is currently embarking on his first trip overseas with members of his Spanish class...Madrid, Barcelona, Segovia, Salamanca, heart is full of joy for the fact that he'll come back a changed person with wider world persepective...

I saw this bumper sticker on the back of a minivan on my spring break drive the other day, a funny moment in an otherwise arduous trip. Glad this mom, whoever she may be, has a sense of humor.

ha ha

Truth be told, I still have a pretty crappy (but cheap!) phone and not an iPhone. So I don't really know if autocorrect is this bad, or if these are embellished a bit....nevertheless the screwups always make me laugh.
