Plungers, Papers and Posh

Just because you are good at something does not necessarily mean you should drop everything else to pursue utilizing that talent. But it doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't either. The following individuals and talents were MFEO or in other words, Made For Each Other.

Let's be honest,

Celine was made for the microphone

Arnold was made for body building

Dr. Seuss was made for writing children books
And, I guess...

I was made for the plungerThat's right. The plunger and I are MFEO. Last night I plunged the drains in our upstairs bathroom for about an hour. The goal? To take a shower without taking a bath at the same time. It was, in a word... REPULSIVE. But it needed to be done, and as they say, "if you want something done right, do it yourself." So, I took matters into my own hands and worked my magic and this morning I took a shower without a pool of water up to the middle of my legs. So, what do you think? Should I drop out of college and become a plumber?
Well it doesn't really matter what you think, because I have already decided to stay in school and keep plunging as a pastime.

On another note, I am taking an online Geology class and I hate it. Not because I hate Geology, but you see, I hate that I am a procrastinator. For instance, our field trip report was due last night at midnight. Did I submit mine at 11:56 PM? I'll let you answer that. It was poorly written and I will be lucky to get a B on it. But, I'm over it. There is more to life than getting a bad grade on a paper for a class I don't even enjoy.
At least my field trip was fun. Special thanks to Bailey Bowthorpe for going with me!

Now for the final item of business. Victoria Beckham also known as Posh Spice from the Spice Girls, a favorite band from my youth, wore this hat to The Royal Wedding.

I don't think I like it. I would feel like a unicorn wearing that. But, I appreciate her efforts to support the bride in her wishes to have the ladies wearing hats on her special day. In fact, I have always planned on wearing a hat on my wedding day, and think it's an ultra classy thing to do. So, start searching for a good one because I will expect to see some fabulous hats at my reception.

I think that sums it up for now, so until next time.

Burned. Out.

As I spoke on the telephone with my beloved friend Sarah Juchau this morning I realized that the next three weeks of my life will be defined by:
1. apathy
2. exhaustion
3. allergies
