Wednesday's Random Goofiness

(in no particular order)

- I am typically floating in Border's 20% off coupons, until I actually need one. Then there are none.

- I am pondering an ebook venture on eBay. Has anyone bought an ebook on eBay? Would you buy one if it was the right topic and price?

- An airline kicked a family off a flight when the 3-year-old daughter would not take her seat. She was "climbing under the seat and hitting the parents and wouldn't get in her seat". I agree with the airline's action. Do you?

- I told my personal trainer I needed a goal. Stupid! Stupid! Now I have to do 30 minutes of cardio 5 times per week for the next six weeks. It's been two days and I can't feel my butt anymore. And I can't eat donuts anymore. WHAA!

- Since we will be traveling to Russia again sometime this spring for our second adoption, I am re-taking a Russian language class. Russian is very easy when you are saying, "That is the dog."* and "My name is Goofy." But after only three weeks, we are conjugating verbs like mad and getting into things like genitive case, accusative case and dative case. Gah! Do I really need to be able to say, "I will read my professor's purple Russian book in the study, with the candlestick"?

- I still haven't done my 2005 taxes. How much trouble am I in?

-My favorite new website is Woot. They offer one deal, per day. It's typically a geeky-techy thing, like a gaming mouse, digital camera or Roboraptor. A sister site is Wine.Woot. Same thing, only wine and one deal per week (not day). I love the one thing per day model. What else could be sold this way? Books? Food items?

- I'm dyeing my hair purple on Friday. Just 'cause.

*funny language note: There are no articles in Russian (the, that, this, a...), so you basically say "That dog." instead of "That is the dog." If you want to ask whether that furry thing is indeed a dog, only your inflection changes... "That dog?" I imagine they do a lot of pointing in Russia.

Are you really dyeing your hair purple? If so, I want to see it!

I've been wanting to do either a lower layer or highlights of electric blue in my hair for months, but I can't quite work myself up to it. Maybe in the spring when the band starts playing out...

re: the airline - I totally agree with the airline. The toddler starting throwing the tantrum during preboarding and was still going full throttle 15 minutes after the scheduled departure time. It's a FAA safety reg that everyone has to be buckled in. What else could the airline do?

Jane -
I really am. You can check it out Saturday @ book club. If it turns out well, I might even take a Goofy snap and post it here.

I've had good luck with the L'oreal Color Pulse temp dyes. I've did the Cherry Red in the fall and now I'm trying the Grape. They have a Blue too!

Airline: totally agree. She would be killed or severely injured someone in case of severe turbulence. Plus, you cannot be out of your seat during takeoff.

I don't even care if kids scream anymore, not since I learned my lesson and started travelling with earplugs hee hee.

Trainer: I LOVE my trainer. Also, love the fact that HE insisted on goals. Plus, the man coaxed me back on to a scale in god knows how many years (I do know, 13). Love the fact that he's more concerned about body fat that a specific goal weight...love the fact that he's dreamy...

Heehee, I work really well with trainers. I hope to eventually reduce to 1 a week (in a couple of months) with them giving me a program to work with, but right now I need to see him at the rate I do.

Best of luck with your goals!!
