Ugh! Scientist are built (God knows how much time & money!) and going to switch on some Atom-Smasher in space soon...what the heck? Why aren't they building a fat shrinker...just a point & it is gone scanner...no lipo! Of all the things we could use? Give me a Break! Where is the Ice Cream that has no calories, fat or sugar but taste JUST LIKE real ice cream. They could be putting their time to soooo much better use! Lets see we get a GPS so guys don't have to leave the car & ask for directions, Viagra & now something that Smashes something...notice a pattern here? What would you want before this? Oh & they are saying they have no idea what will happen when they turn the switch on. Some are speculating all kinds of things. I can just imagine that young males...but honey we may get sucked into a black hole at any minute and you are the one I want to be with at the very end! HA! Then again I can see some older guys using that too! HA!

I know, I know...its been a long time. Busy really. I have 1 class done now & just 1 more for 5 more weeks. Also just enjoying my summer a bit so...
Ok, I have so much to journal on I don't know where to start. Well first, Dell redid my computer & it has a few bugs but they are working them out. I ordered my sound card at midnight & it was here at 10am the next day! WOW! I have sound now! Woo Hoo!
I'm practically living at PT! Both feet, both knees & my hand! Ugh! Now my back for 12 more weeks! I had an MRI but the doc hadn't read it in like 6 weeks he had...ugh but he said it doesn't matter really it is how I'm feeling & if I'm doing ok then that is what is important. Well, I'm not where I want to be but that is what this summer I feel. Treadmilled an hour tonight, took a quick shower & then went to the festival to watch the fireworks. My new motto is do a bit of work, then have fun, little work, then fun! :-) I'm also trying to be more spontaneous and find things I have not done before. Today, I went to a French Market (not any different than general Farmer's Market in my opinion) that I always wanted to go to. I got some fruit and veggies! Last week I tried a new restaurant up north that was Fabulous! Mimi's Cafe...Chicken Pot Pie was AWESOME! They must have had 2 chicken breasts in it. They made it in a crock! So big it looked like I just picked at my food I had so much to take home. Saw a few movies & I'll post on them separately soon. Oh I went for acupuncture last weekend & today. Ahhhhhhh.....so relaxing!
Ok, I'm sorry but there is no way I'd go out with a guy wearing this! Maybe all the young people will get into this but I don't think the older guys will...THANK GOD! I still want MACHO!!! ;-)
I had Sam& Ella outside today...what goofs...they always go to the building across & walked along the side of it? What is up with that? It was really windy today so maybe they did not like that. The rainbow slate rock finally came in at the shop so I got some today...still need some. Trying to make them a step up to a ledge they can sunbathe & have the filter be a water fountain effect. Not perfected yet...need more slate...ugh!
OH! I got a new glide board for my Total Gym. Mine was the first model so we could not get the wheels anymore. I'm so glad to be using it again. I need to get into a consistent pattern now & with 1 less class I'm hoping I can before Fall starts.
Well, I'll try to post more tomorrow...

Well, so far I haven't seen any cows! HA! The city sirens were going off while we were in class. Our school ones were not going off so I looked up on the weather channel...tornado in our area..they just got up & I said ok. Called downstairs & they said they were looking into it & may pull it. We went down & about 5 min later they pulled the alarms. We were downstairs about 30 min & then back up for about 40 min & they pulled them again. Then we were down there more than an hour! I did an activity & taught as we sat on the floors! HA! Kept our minds off the tornado & the parking lot lights going on & off. So now I've taught while waking up on the operating table...they asked me questions to wake me up..HA...and sitting on a floor during a tornado! HA!
Finally our head of security told everyone where the current one was & heading & said he couldn't force them to stay. Some heading the opposite directions left & some stayed another 10 min. He rode up the elevator with me & down to my office to get my purse & then walked me to the door. He was wonderful & took care of us! Took me 30 min to get home. Firetrucks everywhere! Cars stranded under viaducts! You couldn't see until you got to the water. They police stopped me along the river & had us turn around & go one street over as the bigger trucks were having a difficult time. Lawns were flooding & rushing into the street. Right now they said we have already had 3 inches of rain. My lawn in flooded. Sometimes I had to go in the opposite lane to avoid the water & other times both sides just went slow & prayed!
The map is goofy...it appears the storm just stays & gets wider & redder! Ugh! I think they are popping up like crazy around me. All but one student emailed me they are home safe. Yep...I told them to! :-) Well...tornado paths change directions etc. We had one come through a few years ago. Next day damage in the trees...looked like a war zone! Not too bad but more than I saw even when I was a kid!
Right now I wish I had a set of big arms & a chest to just surround me & hold me tight and make me feel soooo safe! ;-) Certainly might keep my mind off the big cracks of thunder! ;-)

Last night when I went to see Sex And the City they previewed some movies that look great! One is "Nights In Rodanthe" with Richard Gere & Diane Lane. Now he's another guy I would pay $7 just to watch for 2 hours! HA! It actually looks good. I really think the idea is lovely. Well, not that relationships have to come apart for someone to find their way back to love but at the same time, sometimes I think there is a reason & a purpose in the grand scheme of things. Life & people do change & sometimes that causes problems that are unrepairable. Sometimes one gets "lost" and has to find your way back during the journey of life. And it is wonderful to see a movie about this with older adults...what I mean is just not the 20 something bunch. The only problem is...this movie does not come out until Oct! I hate when they do that....show you something & it is not coming out until next year! Ugh! Now I have to wait until Oct & hopefully they will not push it back. Well, at least I have something to look forward to in the fall. ;-) Take a look at the trailer...see what you think! Richard is just Yummy!
Yep...my sis came by me & we went to see Sex And The City. I wasn't a huge fan of the series...didn't watch regularly so...but I do love Chris Noth! ;-)
Now if you did not see the movie & plan to....stop here & come back after you see it!
Ok, so it was "Ok"...I don't know seemed like even 2+ hours is not enough to go into depth for all the characters. It lacked the depth I wanted. And they did a bit on Steve but I wish they did more on the guys side...I know it is about female friends but it would be great for these females to see more of what they men go through & vice versa! They could have done sooooo much more.
I loved what John was really about "I just want to be with you". That was lovely. I agree on the "We" vs "I" which I think all of them struggle in life about. I liked the message at the end about labels also! That was good but still found it too much about fashion etc....but that is not my life & what I value so...
I really liked that John did want the romance part...from my experience there ae many men who want the romance also. That is when you see their lovely spirit. And you know what they say...ignore everything he says & just watch what he does! :-) I sometimes forget that but when I do notice that they always come around you so that they walk on the side where the cars would be to protect you...man nothing like that feeling. When they go out of their way & find something you didn't even know existed but it is something you just love...woo hoo. I think Carrie missed that initially & Samantha just totally misses it. I think the writers really missed something with Samantha...they do not delve enough into her character to see why she would rather be attached...and after 5 yrs...I didn't buy it. There was so much more they could of done with her...they hinted at couple of different paths they could of taken...I mean the way they left her...where will she be at 55 yrs? There are some deeper issues she is not dealing with that is for sure!
And John being there to save her shoes....WOW!!!! He is dreamy also...and all I got to say is if guys look like that in their 50s I'm still willing to go older...noooo not just looks it is just personality with it. It isn't that I don't care about that but there are some mighty fine looking men out there that are very ugly guys. Yes, same true for women. John's character is soooo sweet...worried he would screw up again after 2 & also needing to go in with her...ahhhh I just melted! I'd love that! The "just you & me" YEP! I totally agree!
It also is so true how sometimes things get screwed up by texts & phone messages being missed or ignored, things don't always get discussed the way they should. I know people do get scared sometimes & don't say what they want to say either & others do influence them. Sad! What could be? I know you don't know for sure but to "want to" and not take the chance just seems so sad to me. Take the risk at least you know you tried.
I love the simply vows she says he can say...'I will always love you'.
Here is the Beethoven letter from the movie:
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
I'm still thinking...so maybe more later... ;-)
