Clouds and other non-whimsical things

You know when people say they're floating on cloud 9?

Do you ever feel like the other clouds feel left out?

You know, numbers 1-8 and 10?

Well, I've decided I'm going to categorize the different clouds now

Cloud 9 is reserved for twitterpation/being in like/love/infatuation

And I have declared that cloud 8 is reserved for school happiness of any kind

Cloud 4 will be reserved for money happiness...a raise, more money than expected, anything like that

The others will be reserved when necessary

As for today, I am on cloud 8

And cloud 9...I can't leave Boyfriend feeling left out

I finally got my most recent paper back from my Professor

I got an A-!! (89/100 = A-, right?)

While I wanted an A/100%....I will remain content with an A-

I've been so worried about this paper because I was up until about 3:00 finishing it off

And my brain doesn't operate at full capacity at 3:00 in the morning

To be honest I'm not sure it operates at full capacity the majority of the time, but that's not the issue at hand right now

I was also sick the whole time I was working on it...

Luckily I was forced to stay at home Tuesday and Wednesday to help my body recuperate

So I was able to polish it up and make it all pretty and shiny before I handed it in on Tuesday

Now I just have to put all of my energy and focus into my last paper and my final

But tonight, just for tonight, I think I will take the evening off and play a little before I really buckle down and get the paper done and start studying

Just the thought makes me shudder

So, it's been awhile since I've shared a video

But I watched one the other day that was hilarious!! So, I'm going to share it with you


Never mind?

I guess someone claimed copyright on it...and it's no longer available


Hang on, let me find something else

Okay, I found something

I don't typically do the whole politics thing on my blog, and this isn't against President Obama at all, I would find it funny if anyone did it

But I especially think it's funny that the President of the United States made this mistake

Okay, enough babbling, on with the clip (if you click on the words "the clip" it'll take you to youtube...it's magic like that)

Okay, one more thing

Because really, it's hilarious too

Makes me laugh every time I read it

In other news?

I'm an aunt again :)

My brother and his wife had a beautiful baby girl yesterday

Elizabeth _______ ...they haven't decided on a middle name yet

She's adorable!!

But really, all of the little ones we've had are adorable

So it doesn't surprise me

That makes 3 girls in the last 4 months

I'm so lucky!!

I love doting on baby girls and buying them cute clothes

It makes me happy

Okay, enough procrastinating

I've got to get back to work


Or maybe I'll just sit here sipping my water counting down the minutes till I go pick up Boyfriend...

We'll see where my mood takes me

Poor guy. He must be so tired. We've gotta give him this one. It's not as bad as when Bush said "Wow, Brazil is really big."
Congrats on the A-.

Venassa said...

I love your take on the clouds.
Congrats on your newest niece!

True story... I once told my roommates that all I needed to know to pass the citizenship test was that George Washington was the first president of the US and that there are 51 states in the Union.

That quote was on a post-it in our kitchen until we moved out, and to this day they tease me about it. Good thing I'm not eligible for office or that would come to bite me in the butt, haha!

Hooray for A's! I know what you mean but it still says "A" right?! I love the bit about the clouds too. You are adorable. Happy Thanksgiving!

Elisabeth said...

thats hysterical about the presidents - and the calories thing is so true...if they would only stay out of my closet, especially on weeknds/ holidays like this.... it would be much appreciated :)

Reading this post was like chatting with you- very fun!

Hello to Lizzie baby! :)

Manda, I'm tired and achy. Yikes! Life... sure, is beautiful. (Yes, Lord! I am thankful.)

Happy Thanksgiving! Throw me a ladder down from cloud 8, will you?!

Elisabeth said...

My daughter, when told she needed to bring her passport on vacation, said, "Why? We're not leaving the United States, we're just going to Canada."

Maybe we should think about investing more of our federal funding into geography lessons.

Your cloud concept is fabulous.
