The return of The Office

I am so excited that The Office is back on!! It may be a sad state of affairs, but I don't know where I would be without Dwight and Andy and Michael and JIM AND PAM and sweet, sassy Stanley... It just brings so much enjoyment into my life. There, I said it.

Now, about last night's episode, I have a few things to say. If you haven't seen it (and you want to), then maybe you should not read this anymore.

#1. I LOVE THE PROPOSAL!!! I was sooooo nervous how they were showing us Pam's friendship with nice-but-not-at-all-Jim-boy at school. The Office writers, if you did that to me, someone's gonna get hurt. BUT THE PROPOSAL! It was perfect. I love that it was so spontaneous and not the perfect-fairy-tale moment. It was perfect Jim and Pam. But let's be honest, I would've said yes so much louder and faster than Pam. (:

#2. Angela/Dwight/Andy. I don't even know what to say. Poor Andy! And the booty calls (or pages, as the case may be), though funny in their blatantness, TOTALLY ruin what I love(d) about Angela and Dwight's relationship.

#3. I need Michael to just work it out with Holly. But that is some hilarious stuff.

#4. Kevin's specialness revealed...poor Kev, but that is seriously some of the funniest comedy ever. "Wait, back up. Do you think that I'm retarded?"

#5. More favorite quotes:

-Andy: Every little boy fantasizes about his fairytale wedding.

-Michael: No, no, no. I don't wanna hear moaning. This is a good day. You guys accomplished something big. You lost a ton of weight, literally. A lot of weight. And I don't care what any stupid scale says, you guys are all gigantic losers.

-Michael: Does anyone have any idea what the number one cause of death is in this country?
-Dwight Schrute: Shotgun weddings.
-Jim Halpert: That's not what that is.

-Andy: Andy Bernard does not lose contests. He wins them. Or he quits them. Because they're unfair.

-Ryan: I've even started volunteering, giving back to the community.
-Jim: That's great....You're talking about your court-ordered community service?
-Ryan: I don't need a judge to tell me to keep my community clean.
-Jim: But he did right?
-Ryan: Alright.
-Jim: Alright.

I can't wait for next week!

Music Monday

So I've been a slacker. But my favorite game (besides Balderdash) is back! It's the return of Music Mondays, people. Where your host (ie, me) picks a theme for the week and we come up with songs pertaining to that theme. It helps pass the time at work, what can I say?!

This week's theme: songs with the word "hero" in the lyrics. Can anyone guess which show I've been watching during my Shecon Sunday afternoons? (:

So here's what we've got so far. I'll be updating throughout the week, so to the two of you who are reading this: BRING IT ON.

1. "We Don't Need Another Hero" by Tina Turner
2. "Hero" by Mariah Carey
3. "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler
4. "My Hero" by Foo Fighters
5. "Jukebox Hero" by Foreigner
6. "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias
7. "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler

**Updated to add
8. "The Glory of Love" by Peter Cetera (way to go, JS!)
9. "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston
10. "Hero" by Nickelback
11. "A Lot Like Me" by Dave Barnes

Join my entourage

Inspired by my smart friends, I have added the "follow me" application.  So, if you's your invitation to hang out.  (:  

More church fun

I am not sure that I have enjoyed anything quite so much as this:  

That sweet spin move and the "moonwalk" and the break  Plus, the keyboard of TRUTH!

Well I feel sheepish

I have cried over what I'm about to show you. With sweet laughter.

I received the following e-mail from a friend of mine who serves as an accompanist for our church. Said e-mail was written by a dear church member who will be singing a solo this Sunday. My friend put it in the category of "taking things a little far..."

Names have been changed to protect the innocent, except for including the pertinent detail that the writer's last name is actually "Lamb." Thus, the puns. All other text is completely as written.

Have fun:

Hi ______,

Looks like "ewe" are stuck with me for solo this Sunday. I'm very please that "ewe" will be accompanying me and I "wool" be looking forward to it.

Will be singing a simple John Peterson song (everything I do is simple) entitled "I Believe In Miracles."

Please let me know when it will be a good time for "ewe" to rehearse. I am semi-retired and flexible and want to meet when it's most convenient for "ewe." Will drop the music off at the Church on Wednesday.

Blessings from the "Sheep Shed"

______ Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamb

For some odd reason, I couldn't get Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing" out of my head when I finished reading. I feel that someone should tell this person that song may not be an appropriate choice for our traditional worship crowd?

In addition, the above e-mail was then followed up with another gem:

Sounds good to me. I "wool" be there.

Sin "Shear" ly,

The "Wooly Bully"

It's just too much. Sinshearly. In the words of my dear friend, "We need to make Wooly Bully code for something. That is too good to let slip away."

THAT hardcore

I ripped my hand tonight at gymnastics.  

It was just a few swings on the bars, and BAM!  

Don't worry, bloggers, I'm not going to let it crush my hopes and dreams of the 2012 Olympics.  I've still got my game face on.  Now I just come equipped with some kickin' Band-Aids!  

September 7, 2008


I know we played Western Carolina.  I know we were supposed to crush them.  But I just LOVE it when we meet and exceed all expectations.  These days, you never can tell.  As far as home openers go, this was my JAM!!!  Even after a 2 1/2 hour rain delay...we had 561 total yards.  It was a shut-out with a final score of 69-0.  We scored TEN touchdowns and only missed 1 extra point.  Welcome back, boys...  (:

I've been waiting for this moment for all my life

I remember, don't worry...

It's almost MY football season.  I can feel it coming in the air tonight.  Oh, Lord.   Last week was a momentous occasion with the start of NCAA football and all that jazz.  But this...this is MY week.  My friends take the field again this Saturday.  

Last weekend...not a great weekend for the ACC.  And I just know you SEC peeps out there are sitting smugly in front of your little computers and  you're just going to make us eat the ACC for breakfast.  But Florida State remembers greatness.

This could be our moment.

I am a Seminole.  I always have been and I always will be.  I love college football, all of it.  But I grew up a Seminole.  I come from the Seminole line, if you will.  I graduated from Florida State.  I work in this building:

Plus, lest anyone forget...winningest coach of all time.  He's mine, too.  (:

That's all I have to say for now.  I might have to sing the fight song or something later in the season, so that's something for everyone to look forward to.   Right now, though, nothing gets me pumped for football like my favorite Phil Collins song.  Just picture the team coming out of the tunnel through the mist in slow motion.  Oh yeah.  Sing it.
