Pennsylvania's Most Interesting Blog

Snivam, snivam...

OK, work with me, here, inspiration has struck and I'm blogging it:

Things I'd rather be doing than getting through this pile of reading:

SIDENOTE: I actually did have an 'ah-hah!' moment this afternoon while reading, which makes me feel LESS dumb.... OK, so in no particular order and, well, you get the idea that I can't concentrate (I think the "I've been Schranke-ed!" excuse is wearing off, though):

  • Playing the bass parts to "My Sharona" on stage at some drunken college bar, knowing that I have way more 'been there, done that" over my audience
  • reading some of my 'for fun' books to spark my mind
  • do more online mini-research on handmade ukeleles, since I'm pretty sure I'll invest in one whilst in Hawaii in May
  • lying in my cozy bed because it's so freaking cold outside
  • DJ-ing at a local radio station, hearing myself talk. 80's hits perhaps? Or ponderage?
  • laughing with kids
  • in Paris
  • in London
  • in a music studio bashing on a set of drums, learning to play. Either that or get a banjo...
  • watching my kitchen clean itself
  • sitting at a table in a darkish cozy cafe with a good red wine and some tasty tidbit, I don't really care what his name is, and maybe he's on break from the jazz set.
  • at the movies
  • Warm flannel sheets. And that's all I will say about that.

  • What are you daydeaming about? DO share, it'll be Most Interesting!

    I daybream about the times when I didn't owe papers from previous semesters. or that some brilliant strangers leaves a package at my door that has the all written and proof-read inside. Any volunteers for that job?

    I have the same job requirements, Anne.

    I dream about me, a book, a very hot mocha and a good doughnut and an endless afternoon to enjoy it.

    Or hearing my son say some actual words. That would rock, too.

    HI! I dream of working at a school where I am actually treated like a GROWNUP, as I had another birthday yesterday, and our demented Headmistress is really named Manipulative Co-conspirator. I dream of a land where the parents do not obey the chidren. I dream of endless time and money to knit, sipping champagne. Cindy

    I dream of Maya Angelou coming to my house to revise my dissertation for me. I dream of her telling my committee, 'Yep, it's ready to be submitted to the grad school.' And, the best part is, they take her word for it! That would be AWWWWWESSSOMMMMMMEEEEE!
