ahhh! i didn't notice till now, but TONY PIERCE commented on my blog friday.

it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling and a new resolve to do that cool post i have had in the back of my mind for a while.

i was all excited and told my roomate, but she didn't care. i keep trying to show her the greatness of tony pierce, but she doesn't understand. i guess its okay that she doesn't read blogs, cause then i can quote her on here as much as i want without worrying about what she'd think. (see the IM conversation a few posts ago) she'd probably be pissed! hehehe

Gidget1300: when mexico fought the war against spain for their independence, did they immeately name their country the united states of mexico, or was that not until the revolution in the 1900s?
ChicanaSpike: monkeys named the country united monkey land
ChicanaSpike: immediately
Gidget1300: oh. thanks
ChicanaSpike: any time

the best football team is the green bay packers, because they're named for the meat packing industry. thats coo

all of a sudden i have this urge to party
loud music, a little tipsy, sweat and people everywhere. hmm. not very likely.
i think i did all my partying as a ninteen year old

i miss ashley on
good lord, why am i still awake?
and i'm hungry! its the good old "sarah is still awake at 3 am so she needs food" time. theres something else i miss- 3 am snack fests in the dorms with all my crazy friends.

i'm afraid my love for country music is incredibly un-hip.

carolyn and i saw elf last night... it was SO funny. absolutely hilarious.

she decided that she should start answering our phone with, "this is carolyn the elf, whats your favorite color?"

i helped out at a junior girl scout engineering badge workshop this morning. i was in charge of the polymer engineering station. we made plastics with borax, water, glue, and a bunch of funky additives, like cornmeal and baking powder. it was cool, but messy.

there were two troops of girls from sinsheimer there, plus i saw like 8 of the boys from the school last night at the movie. (they were having a sleepover) one of the best parts about working in a school is definately running into the kids around town. they get so excited to see you. :o)

its now christmas in our apartment. carolyn put out her nativity set, snowmen figurines, candle, angel, stockings, and christmas tins. plus, our bannister is wrapped with fake greenery, red beads and lights. and bows too.... theres some more greenery and lights swagged across the living room, with ornaments hung from it. plus we've got our traditional "lets hang ornaments and snowflakes from the ceiling cause we have no tree" wonderfulness.

ben got me a boquet of yellow flowers today...
they're so pretty.

we've been dating for 20 months (wow)

he's too nice to me. its time for him to start being mean and making me bake him pies

whats really fun is when i think i see an ant in the outskirts of my vision field. happens way too much.

i babysat a satan baby tonight. she'd do these scary possesion-like crying fits that i've never before seen the like of. and i hurt my wrist carrying her around in the only way that she liked being held.

oh yeah... and they paid me fifty bucks for 3.3 hours of work. maybe i shouldnt complain

dude... i really didn't want to know that.

i think that my confusion about which way toilet seat covers go must be a pretty common question. i've already had three people come from google trying to find out. :oP

here's an interesting article about blogs

i have a reddish orange corded telephone... its awesome. someday everyone will come over to my theoretical future cool home, and comment on how hip my phone is.

ben and i are taking a trip down to the huntington museum in pasadena tommorow. my major (liberal studies) often organizes trips to museums. its pretty cool, but i've never gone on one before.

we have to be on campus at 7.15 to get on the bus. ack!!! poor me. i'm ridiculous.

i hardly ever use my own computer nowadays. in fact, except for yesterday, it has to have been almost 2 weeks since i last turned mine on. (carolyn may have used it more recently)

yeah... i've been using the computers that are in our living room- laura's and carolyn's

i've been playing age of empires today. why does ben think that is so shocking? my brother and i have had AOE since high school.

i posted last night, and blogger ate it. AH!

it was a good post, but i don't seem to recall exactly what i said

but i got my student teaching assignment yesterday! I'll be teaching in Mrs. Osbourne's 1st grade class at the school that i work at. :o) i'm pretty excited... and scared. my first day will be january 6th

so i called "hospital solutions", and had to ask three people my silly question, but i have your answer!!!

the tab of the toilet seat cover goes in the front

for all of my 21 years, i have been doing it wrong

i just got completely wierded out... i've been so busy i haven't been keeping up with everyones blogs this week, and.. hm. hmm.

i guess i just have the best boyfriend.

i was in a public toilet today, and i wrote down the 800 number of the toilet seat cover manufacturer. i'm totally going to call them tommorow and embarass myself asking stupid questions. and its all for you guys

lets hope they know

Sunday, November 09, 2003

no one seems to know for sure which way you're supposed to put the toilet seat covers onto public toilets. i've always put the tab in the back, until i recently started doubting that i was doing the correct thing.

i tried researching online, but i only found this stuff:
you can buy toilet seat covers here
need pretty decorated toilet paper for your potty training toddler?
they sell plastic ones too

so take this poll, and then i will work even harder to find the answers we all desperately need

toilet seat covers!!!

which way are toilet seat covers supposed to be oriented?
with the tab in the front
with the tab towards the back

holly has a blog! it has pinup girls on it. i kinda like pinup girls- they're cute. maybe someday i'll find an extremely tasteful pinup and then put it, framed, in my house. i know this will never happen because it'd shock my parents and probably some other visitors but... i can dream, right?

this guy who i dont know linked to me, along with a bunch of bloggers who are WAY more well known than me. hm. he talks about politics and has a total of two posts. i find it fascinating when people link to me... why did they do it? what do they like about my silly poop blog? the world may never know.

ps- tonight... tonight we will reveal the secretness

i'm okay with rain as long as it isn't raining while i walk to and from classes. can it just rain on weekends and evenings this year please?

i got a new cell phone today. it's a nokia 3595 with color display and lots of other do dads. polyphonic ringtones (which i hate- sounds like you have a piano in your pants) and my phone... it has a BOWLING game. high score so far- 143. i'm way better at phone bowling than real bowling, you guys!

tommorow i will reveal the pressing issue which i will tirelessly resolve for my faithful readers.
one hint: it protects us from the dirtyness

i didn't do so good in bowling today because we couldnt find a bowling ball that fit my hand. for next week, the teacher is going to snag the 12 pound ball that has a serial number ending in 21 for me, before my class comes in. then, hopefully, i will be able to bowl non-retardedly.

my score last week was the 2nd highest girls score when handicap was factored in. woo hoo! i got a high score!

i'm just going to pretend that i'm glad i got a 43 today, seeing as it will raise my handicap a little bit, forcasting greater chances of awesomeness on thursday november 13.

i seem to have misplaced my bubble gum pink hairclips. where are you, my little friends???
hmm... did i ever unpack the hairthings i brought to new york? i thought i did....

i volenteered (volunteered? yes!) with the local girl scout council today. when i get a call back, i can find out what sort of girlscouty goodness i've gotten myself into.

in other news, i squirted cherry tomato goo up into my sleeve at lunch today.

work was interesting today

the first day of school since halloween
parent teacher conferences, so they get out early
first rainy day lunch of the year

:oP silly kids

but i ate an extra school lunch. it was cheesy french bread. very very buttery- i couldnt decide if it was really good or really terrible.

ben happened to mention how much money he spent on five iron frenzy merch at the show... i'd just like to state that as a team (of three people) we spent around three hundred dollars at the five iron show.

3 tickets
2 posters
4 buttons
2 sweatshirts
3 cds
6 t-shirts
1 trucker hat (it was carolyn! not me!!!)

oh yeah, plus a total of 8 dollars on costumes
we were holy trinities. like trinity in the matrix, with black and leather and sunglasses... but with gold tinsel halos. get it????

Saturday, November 01, 2003
