I missed two Random Thoughts Tuesdays in a row!! I love random thoughts!!
I'm sure Keely missed me...luckily there are others who sign up for her random thoughts. Check it out here:
But I'm back in the groove....hold on to your Ugg slippers everyone....
I still have some sharp tooth pain, but it comes and goes and I think it might just be my receding gums. Self-diagnosis....DONE! My way of feeling better is to use the sensitive toothpaste and just suffer during those small periods of time where it hurts.
I hate Halloween and all of the stupid calories that come with it!! Why do we have a holiday based around candy??? Lame. When I was teaching in Korea, I tried to convince the children that on Halloween, children bring their teachers chocolate. Only a couple of them did it because they really weren't sure if I was kidding. I love kids...they're so easy to influence.
During my speech at my volunteer events, at the part where I tell the group about the teen program we have available, I have taken to using the word "Holla" when I talk to them. For instance, "the teen program is really great, it's led by teens and is filled with teens and is a lot of fun...HOLLA! The usual response I get is blank stares. I feel like they might think I'm old....I hate kids...they're so snotty.
I absolutely HATE that show Two and a Half Men, with Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer and that pudgy boy who can't act at ALL...HATE it. Charlie's character is sooooo offensive and that kid is a HORRIBLE actor. HORRIBLE. I don't care that he's a child---there are some great child actors out there. But wait--that's not even the point - focus----the show itself is horrid, with the characters being the worst on any show ever. There's the playboy uncle (charlie) who just sleeps around and makes lewd comments. There's the single dad, who has horrible parenting skills. And that kid...ugh....that poor kid - who is rude and snotty and is not funny EVER. The one episode I saw was while I was trapped on a plane and I couldn't sleep and in it, the 14 yr old boy got drunk. Uncle Charlie Sheen thought it was funny. The dad didn't really care-he was busy dating two girls at once and having fun about dating two girls at once. UGH - I can't stand that show!!!! It upsets me. It really does. Let's not discuss this again, okay?
I'm in the middle of reading The Calligraphers Daughter by Eugenia Kim. I wasn't that into it until I got about halfway through, and now I'm actually quite interested in it and must get back to it. I may or may not have taken it in the car with me the last two times I went anywhere so I could read at red lights. I don't know where I heard of it, but I find myself pulled to most things Korean (as long as it's not kimchi) and this book spans the life of a Korean girl and the struggles she went through growing up. It's really quite good. I'm not done yet, but I would recommend it!! Add it to your list.
