I Blame Joni Mitchell

I blame Joni Mitchell for my yearly summer break-down. And here's why.

Everyone knows that I suffer from a rare disorder in which I periodically listen to Christmas music during a non-Christmas season. Well, I fell off the wagon again, and found myself digging frantically through my Christmas collection to find all my favorite songs, but then somehow.... somewhere (mid-panic) I had an epiphany. The reaosn I do this every year (and sometimes several times a year) is because of Joni Mitchell. If it weren't for Joni Mitchell, my break-downs my never happen! Here's how. I like (no, love) Joni's song "Both Ways Now", it's a favorite. And every time I get an urge to hear it, I pop in the "Love Actually" sound-track. Which is the CD that I own with that song on it. For those of you who don't know, "Love Actually" is a Christmas movie, so when I pop in the CD, it goes from Joni, to "White Christmas", and well, you know how addicts are. So, I say it's Joni's fault that I am unstable.

I wonder if I could sue?......... Just joking of course

Do You Know The Kind Of Day?.....

  1. That you get woken up out of stage five slumber by your ringing cell phone at 9:30?
  2. That you get your day started at 11 and it's not a Saturday?
  3. When everything takes twice as long as your expecting it to?
  4. When only half of your four students come to class (you do the math)?
  5. When it sprinkles all day but never rains?
  6. That all the food in your house takes "too long to make" but the most complicated item in the house is cereal?
  7. You never seem to wake up?
  8. Walking out to the mailbox seemed like an accomplishment?

Because if you know that kind of day, you know what kind of day I'm having. Bleh. When Brian left at two this afternoon we had literally done nothing but read a little, eat a little, and shower. It is definately a lazy day.

I'm Feeling...

  1. Conspicuous (I'm typing this from a computer hooked up to a monsterous projector at work.)
  2. Tired (I have been wierdly tired lately. Don't know why)
  3. Excited (I got training today at work on how to use the "black box" in the classroom which is basically the computer system).
  4. Hungry (so far for dinner I have had a half of a bowl of Smart Start and a bag of Cheetos).
  5. Accomplished (I have already updated my students' grades - and it's only the second day of class)
  6. Relieved (Brian has tomorrow evening off and he gets to go to church with me).
