Don't tell anyone I snuck out to shoot a baseball game yesterday. I may even do it again.

Cinqo de Quizo

Oh Sadness!! was my search engine o' choice for lots of reasons - You could set it up where you got regular website results and images on the same page for every search, and, which is more pertinent to this post, they would tell you when you've already been to a site.  So... That was the only way I knew if I had already used a lyric!  Now they've switched over to using Windows Live instead of Google, and alas, all is sad and not as good as it was. 

Long story short - expect to start seeing duplicates on ye olde lyrics quiz :(  I'll try to keep it to a minimum though.

So last time all went well except for no one knowing 'You Sexy Thing' by Hot Chocolate.  Maybe that's all for the good anyway.  Oh and there was mild disagreement on #10.  Sorry, New Kid, 'Babe' was indeed by Styx, not Air Supply.  See!  That why you don't have to be embarrassed about recognizing them! :)

Also, a special 'howdy' to Gary.  Good to see you 'round.

Alrighty then - now that all that's out of the way, let's get quzzin'!

The music dance and sing
They make the children really ring
I'll spend the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and in and out the valley


It's not in the words that you told me
It's not in the way you say you're mine
It's not in the way that you came back to me
It's not in the way that your love set me free

3. This one should be worth 2 points. :)
But we can love oh yes we can love
And my brother’s back at home with his beatles and his stones
We never got it off on that revolution stuff
What a drag too many snags

And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search for evermore

But I ain’t forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin’
Now I’m eatin’ my heart out
Tryin’ to get a letter through

I got up to wash my face
When I come back to bed
Someone’s taken my place

Then your innocent distractions
Hit me so hard
My emotional reaction
Caught me off guard

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you.
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you.
Whenever you need someone to lay your heart and head upon.

At night, the people come and go
They talk too fast, and walk too slow

and now we're six months older
And everything you want and everything you see
Is out of reach
not good enough.

80 random people + blue polo shirts and khakis + plans to politely hang out at the local Best Buy = Hilarious

8.22km - 39'08"

Almost under 39' again! :)

I Have Not I Have Not I Have NOT!

I have not wasted most of today already!  Why do I feel like I haven't done anything
  • I did that stupid survey that explained how no one earning what I earn can afford to live here. 
  • I answered all of those emails (including the student who had a really good question, but wasn't my student). 
  • I read a nasty (but useful) article in a language that I read really slowly.
  • I mapped out a bunch of things I'll need to get corralled for the summer class. (scary scary scary)
  • I did a bit of hunting around for materials for the summer class (I think this is where I feel like I didn't get anything done because most of what I did was discover that all those sources just wont work).
  • I even blogged
and the day isn't done yet.  I'm breaking for a run, then I get back to work.  Maybe I'll feel like I've accomplished something later.

Oh, and the Black Adder DVD that Netflix sent me was cracked.  Poo.

Because I Know You Were Worried,

Now the sneezing.  So.  Allergies it is. 

I've taken the antihistamine, but the true question is:  Will the cafe people throw me out because of me sneezing every 30 seconds before the medicine kicks in, or will I pound my head open on the metal table first?

Why does my body not work right!?


Grrr...  This is absolutely no fair.  I've been surrounded by people hacking and coughing up their individual plagues for weeks now, and I've survived.  Now, just as most everyone else is recovering (except for one colleague who I seriously think is ill on a serious scale - naturally she refuses to go to the clinic: 'They'll only give me medicine, and I won't take it.'), I start to sniffle.  I hope it's only allergies.  If this is a real illness, I'm going to... um... drink fluids and rest?  Feh...  Even my threats are pretty sickly.
