I'm going into retirement. Well, not me per say... This blog is. I've been so insanely busy, etc. Maybe I'll come back to it in a few months (years?).

I'm in the midst of trying to apply at different schools, which then means moving, and all the stuff that goes w/ that. I'm working 2 jobs: teaching full time and then retail part time. Plus all in there, trying to have some kind of social life.

Well, I just wanted to give JAQQ2 a semi-official end... well, more like hiatus.

Toodles for now.

Roses are red...

Valentine's Day. That time of year when you are either:
a) intoxicated by the love of your life
b) wishing you had a different love of your life
c) desperately single and wanting a love of your life
d) livid by the whole idea of needing a love of your life

And of course, if you do have someone to share this special holiday with, what are you expecting from them? you know, even though you may not admit it, exactly what you want as a present. and if that significant other doesnt get it for you or gets something different, theyre in the doghouse.

so, what's your preference of v-day gifts?
1) it better be chocolate! i'm so sweet, and he/she should know it!
2) anything but chocolate... does he/she think i'm so fat that i just want food?
3) flowers. and they better be roses. beautiful roses, and lots of them. i'm worth the $$$
4) just a nice card. something from the heart. maybe a self-written poem...
5) dinner out. no distractions, just us enjoying champagne and a very elaborate meal.

for those single ones out there [just like abigail], think back to your last relationship that occured over v-day. either that or use your imagination.

Crystal Ball

I find myself in the midst of great confusion. I have no clue what I'm going to be doing in 6 months. I'll be leaving the school I'm teaching at now, moving out of my apartment, and I have no clue where I'll be going. It's really frustrating. I don't know if I'll be moving in with my parents, moving out on my own in Delaware or some other part of PA. No clue. I hate not knowing things!

I kind of wish I had a crystal ball and could find out what's going to be happening. Though, I guess I should view it all as a growing and stretching experience.

So my question I'll pose to you is this: Would you really want to know your future, or do you like the not-knowing bit?

Gimme the Veggies

So, I've decided to go meatless. Starting today, I am a vegetarian. The past week was a sort of trial period. Ease myself into it. I'm now a no-meat kind of girl.

Well, at least for a month. My one friend has recently gone vegan. She's been trying to talk me into it. For health reasons, not anti-cruelty-to-animals reasons. So I finally decided hey- why not give it a try. So for the next month I'm going to see 1) if I CAN do it, and 2) if it seems worth it. I'm not going to be hardcore vegan- w/ the whole no milk, eggs, etc. I'm still doing dairy, and fish once in a rare while.

We'll see!

Double O... 8?

If you could give yourself a secret code name,
what would it be?

What's your favorite winter snow activity?

I know it's short, but hey- at least it's something! The first question from me in months!

A little bird told me...

You have your favorite cup of coffee [or tea or hot chocolate or whatever you prefer] and are so at peace while sipping away at it. You step outside to quick check the mail, carrying your mug with you. Sure, its getting a little cold but you just can't seem to part with it.


Your coffee splashes over onto your hand. [ouch, its hot!] You look in the mug to see what the problem is, only to discover that some BIRD POOPED and it landed in your cup.

Your blessed drink is ruined! What do you do?

A. Fall to your knees in a weeping mess
B. Track down the bird and throw the scalding hot drink on it
C. Drink it anyway; a little doo-doo never hurt anyone
D. Resign yourself to the fact and just make another cup
