Thinking some thoughts

Some thoughts that have been swirling around my head, needing to be released:

1. What happened to Dunkin' Donut's doughnuts with the rainbow sprinkles on top? There used to be a heavy, even layer of sprinkles on the chocolate frosting, but lately, they've only been covering half of the doughnut...and sparsely, at that!

2. High School Musical 3: The announcer says, "This is the biggest year of their lives." Seriously? So, it's all downhill from senior year, huh? I sure hope not.

3. Bamboo sheets: Though the overall carbon footprint of bamboo materials is a little questionable, I cannot recommend these sheets enough. I actually stayed in bed for an extra half hour, rubbing my arms, legs, and feet all over the sheets just because it felt that good.

4. I start sewing classes in a week and a half! I'm SO excited, and am already gathering my supplies. I'm going to get my mom's Singer scissors sharpened next week. We'll be making a tote bag, and pajama pants--possibly my favorite thing to wear, besides coats.

5. I need a job!!! Someone please hire me!!

6. I haven't been in Virginia during the fall since I graduated from Longwood. This weather REALLY makes me miss being in Farmville from dinner at Macado's, La Parota, or Pino's to late night cavorting at Wal-Mart.

7. I <3 Obama's 'fro in his "That's the country I believe in" commercial.

Kids say the darndest things

I may have romanticized open window weather in my last post, but there are some downsides to having your windows open 24/7. One of those is a result of the fact that kids like to get up at ungodly hours of the morning. My backyard neighbors have both a playset AND a trampoline, making them a hotspot among neighborhood children. Some conversation snippets I've been waking up to in the past few days:

Kid: William hates you!

Kid A: Well f*** you!
Kids B, C, and D: SSSHHHH!! SSSHHH!!!

Kid 1: Give me my ball back!
Kid 2: I don't HAVE your ball!
Kid 1: I'm gonna tell my mom that you had my ball and didn't give it back.
Kid 2: I don't HAVE your ball! I don't know where the f*** it is!
Kid 1: Alright, fine, bye!
Kid 2: Wait! Don't go!

Ah, so very tough.
