Yeah…… so life got really busy……..

Last semester A, A, extension, extension

This semester I am finishing my internship (the two extensions from last semester), Firearms, Modern Disasters, CPR for Health Care Providers, Forensic Pathology: Advanced Death Investigations, and Advanced Photoshop.  Sounds like a fun semester to me.

My knee surgery is scheduled for Jan 29, at something crazy like 6am……..

Christmas was good, New Years was good, I will be writing more soon….

Women in Law Enforcement – A

Internship – Extended until February

EIS (my not very happy class) – yikes…. I have to get my “self evaluation” in tomorrow, and there was one assignment I never got around to because it was pointless (seriously… they need a writing sample when I transfered in College Comp 1 and 2  – both with A’s….), and the teacher just doesn’t like me…..

Movies (reviews and trailers)

November 26, 2009 at 9:25 am (Fun Stuff) (, , , , )

Star Trek is finally out on DVD.  It’s not as good as on the big screen, but I still really like this movie.  I think it is my favorite of the movies.  I would to get a copy dubbed in German, but don’t have a Region 2 DVD player (mom, they start at $25 on amazon…. hint, hint…).

Angels and Demons is also finally on DVD.  Simply wonderful.  I love the history in this movie.  I hope the movie adaptation of The Lost Symbol (the third in the series) is just as good.

Last night, I saw The Men Who Stare at Goats.  It was bizarre, but really funny.  George Clooney and Ewan McGregor did an excellent job.

Up in the Air (also with George Clooney) looks good.  As does The Maiden Heist.

Thanksgiving Cooking

November 25, 2009 at 12:52 pm (Fun Stuff, Life) (, , , , )

This year for Thanksgiving dinner, I was given the task of preparing a green bean side dish.  Not being a fan of green bean casserole, I decided to try two (one vegetarian, one not) new dishes.

The vegetarian one is Garlicky Green Beans.  Which is green beans sauteed ini garlic, olive oil, parsley (though I don’t think I have any parsley), salt and pepper.  Ok, sounds a little boring but oh well.

The non-vegetarian dish is bundles of green beans wrapped in bacon and roasted.  I would have never thought to combine green beans and bacon, but it got good reviews online…

Yep, I’m Still Here

I don’t know why, but I have had the hardest time writing on my blog recently.  My life really can’t be that boring…

Ok, keys.  Last week, I went through no fewer than 3 sets of keys in the course of the week.  I locked my keys in the car… It took my 20 minutes to find the spare… I forgot about a set of keys in my jacket pocket… I left a set of keys in my weekly packing… I have since found all my keys and always have access to three copies.

Cabbage.  I want to know whose stupid idea it was to put cabbage on sandwiches.  Nasty!

In super exciting news, Griffin (Phoenix’s half brother) was born this past weekend.  He is super cute and friendly.  Pictures of both boys here.

Let’s see… what else.

In about 2 weeks I’m going to see the TransSiberian Orchestra (it’s a rock orchestra that does a christmas tour every year).  Here is their 2009 Promo:

It’s a lot of fun!!!!

My internship is wonderful! I really can’t say more about it, but I’m working with a great group of people on some really neat things and I’m greatly saddened by the fact that it is already half over.

I’m still backlogged with school.  Six things I absolutely must do this week (write a paper, turn in a paper, register for classes x2 schools, get an extension form signed, write contracts for 2 classes).  Everything else can wait a little bit.

In my study of German, I am now learning country and language names, which are actually kinda neat, because they are really similar to English, but just different enough that they sound really neat.  For example Ich bin Amerikanerin.  Ich spreche Englisch. However, my spelling still stinks.

I really can’t think of anything else to write right now…. I’ll try to write more often!

I don’t really have time to write right now, but when I do, it will be about keys, cabbage, and some other stuff.


Just thought I’d put that out there 😉
