Well, last week I did 7 Quick Takes for the first time, it was fun, and I figured I would do it again, if only because it gets this blog updated! Happy Friday all!
1 – I have been meaning to post this anyway: RIP Super Herman. Super Herman is the second hermit crab we have lost this summer (perhaps the excitement of the wedding was too much for them?). It has been said by some of my very good friends that we are a little too attached to our hermits and perhaps we should get a dog or a child….well until then, we can’t help but be attached to our little climbing crustaceans! *sniff*. I wrote about the hermit crabs here, but since then “Elmo Herman” had become “Super Herman” and looked like this when he passed on:
2 – Going camping soon, YAY! Hubby and I have not been camping since July 4 of last year, when it rained terribly and we were miserable. We have a new tent and he has a new sleeping bag, which I might add were both purchased for the TOTAL price of $1.57 due to excellent use of coupons on my part and a gift card on my hubby’s part.
3 – The apartment is now in order! Also yay. However, packing for camping has thrown it into another mildly disordered state….sigh.
4 – I hope I don’t jinx it by posting it, but…I did find a teaching job advertised in my discipline this week and of course I applied for it. We shall see. I didn’t think it would be this difficult finding a job, being a teacher and all. I still have about a month until school starts here, so I am fairly hopeful still.
5 – This week’s simple pleasure: Rock Band. My hubby and I have formed a band (it’s called Spores, Molds n Fungus, and that’s a Ghostbusters reference, props to you if you get it) and we are currently on a world tour headed to San Francisco. If you haven’t played, try it! It’s fun and even I, as a lifelong woodwind player, can manage the guitar on “medium” difficulty pretty well. Hubby is a music major, so he is ridiculously talented and can play whatever instrument he wants. (Although my brother in law is the best Rock Band drumset player I have seen to date.)
6 – Facebook was interesting this week. One of my favorite priests, Father Leo, who has a mission with a website (Grace Before Meals), and who was one of the priests assisting with our Pre-Cana classes, and who was one of the priests at my confirmation during Easter Vigil 2009 – joined Facebook! Yay! And I caught up with a lot of old friends via the posting of some more wedding pictures and random coincidences.
7 – Let’s end with something funny. I found this post a while ago on a new-to-me blog I started reading because of this awesome post entitled “How to Meet and Woo a Nerdy Girl”. Anyway, the first link is to Nerd Man of the Month for July (btw my next post in the series Hot Men of Science will be making an appearance soon!), Alan Rickman, and it’s priceless, you MUST listen to the Family Guy clip at the end. “Do not disappoint me...” It gets me every time!
