OHO! Knew there was a reason

on April 5, 2008 - 6:32am

HA! Oh Josh you are a darling. The most craziest of us who had the DVD on preorder are the ones entered in for the April 15th tickets? *BIG KISS* We may be rats, but we're well fed and quite happy now.

Not that I can make it, *cry*, but that's kind of sweet in my opinion. I had it ordered ar about 6AM on 3/31 so I'd be eligible, but no way I can make it to New York that quick :( *cry*

Oh well. But hey- according to that new blurb, it's in High Def? Josh you darling! I knew there was a reason dad splurged and spent his big poker prize money on a shiny new high def tv :)

You know what's really funny? Josh has us SO conditioned through some amazing'y effective schedule of random reinforcement to repeatedly check back for news on an upcoming CD/DVD and THE INSTANT it gets posted, I whip out the credit card and buy without even questioning. After enough lever pressing, this rat finally has her food pellet.

Ah well, I'm employed so it's not like I don't have the money to play with (thank heavens for that!) but still, as a psychologist, I find Josh's powers of persuasion to be very amuesing.

...Sweeney must be one very well trained dog.

"48" Hours

on March 31, 2008 - 5:53am

Note to self: Time is relative.

Okay, I don't think we've had 48 business hours pass so in some sense "technically" they haven't missed their own deadline for the DVD.

Spent Saturday playing judge for a basic skills competition at the rink. One little girl was too young to even have the cognitive faculties to memorize a routine, so her coach had to be out on the ice miming her through it. She had the BIGGEST grin on her face like any second she was going to burst out laughing and shout "Look Mommy I can skate!!!" For that brief 45 seconds, we were all warm enough (she was the only skater in her event so she got 1st ;) ) But we (the other judges and I and the competition referee) all discovered that time is relative on the ice too- pretty much every skater there had their music go over the allowed maximim. *sigh* Time is relative.

Yesterday it was more of the cold: I drug the office out skating at a public skate! It was a blast, really. I have kick-butt office mates and coworkers. Some of them even brough their little ones out so I got to play coach some more. :) I discovered I enjoy it, but I'm still skating for me yet, that coaching career is in the FUTURE. (And given that there were 60 year olds at sectionals... time is relative :))

Except between the last two days, I've picked up a sore throat. All I want to do is crawl back into bed and sleep- I even gave skating a miss today :( Hopefully I can avoid it, but I'm thinking this week might be my first use of official paid sick time!

Next 48 Hours?

on March 27, 2008 - 6:00am


I mean Yay! The DVD is on it's way SOON! But why o why did they have to pick the busiest 48 hours of my week? SERIOUSLY! (Josh? I'm telling you man, quit annoucing stuff on Thursdays! I can't get to it until Friday evening at best!)

In other news: back from my family reunion with LOADS of stories. But, rather than tell them all here, I got inspired by reading WiGirl's wonderful fan fic to embellish them a bit with a fictional Josh sighting. Maybe with some encouragement, I'll get gutsy enough to email it out so we can all have a good laugh at my overactive imagination.

Have a Joshin' Day Every one- I know I will!

Moving On (Again)

on March 21, 2008 - 4:51am

Still mad at myself. *sigh* Okay, moving on.

OOH! DVD Cover! It's getting closer! (Wow, bad pun ;)) Headed down to the Boise area for a family reunion today. Hard to believe that the last time I was down it was to see Josh! I love my family, but that's going to be a hard one to top ;)

Just kidding, I'm totally stoked abou the family reunion. Pretty much a day into it we're al having so much fun together we start planning the next one. And, it likely won't be Joshless: at Thanksgiving the family pretty much declared Noel the family Christmas album (no small feat with my grandparents so for what it's worth GO JOSH) and the song 'Awake' has come to have some special meaning for all of us (two cancer diagnosis, some heart attacks, a liver condition since we've all gotten together last).

Okay, off to play (skate :)), then, off to play (family!!:))!
