I know I said I'd be around this week but I won't.

My father-in-law passed away this morning very suddenly and unexpectedly. There will be a lot for the family to do in the coming days and I will obviously be focusing on them.

Any thoughts and prayers are always appreciated. So many friends and family have already reached out and helped so much with their kind words.

Hug your family extra tight for me tonight.

Weekly Manicure

I did my nails this week! Yay! Here's hoping they're not ruined after we go hiking today. Hmmm...

I LOVE this blue color. It's Cinderella from Sinful. It has a shimmer to it and it's just pretty and girly. I threw some glitter polish from Forever 21 on the ring finger. I like.

It'll be a short week this week. But that doesn't mean I'm not already looking forward to Friday. :)

Oh Hey

Yeah I disappeared this week.

I had a big final credential thing to take care of and in typical Typhoid fashion I put it off to the last minute. But it's done. My credential is clear! And I partied Friday in celebration.

Rundown of this week:
  • credential stuff and more credential stuff.
  • OBVIOUSLY happy with the winner of American Idol. Squealed and everything.
  • didn't get fancy with the mani. Just plain ol' orange. I've already started this week's though.
  • fell asleep before 9:30 on Thursday out of sheer exhaustion.
  • partied it up with a couple of friends Friday night. There was a toast to finishing BTSA and other fun stuff.
  • panicked because I couldn't find my wallet yesterday morning. I knew I hadn't taken it out Friday though. And I checked my accounts and everything was fine. Called my bartender friend that was with me and he wasn't answering. So I went down to the bar and prayed some of the guys were there already cleaning and stuff. Thankfully I'm friends with everyone there so the manager let me in and looked for my wallet. It was in the employee locker that my purse was in Friday night. Guess when my buddy took my purse out it fell. Everything was there. I was happy. Had coffee to celebrate.
So things should be getting back to normal around here. I'm going to try to work on the whole video situation. Stupid things not posting...

Eight days of school left. Then summer. Yeeeeee!

Just found out my videos aren't popping up? WTF? I'll work on that. Stupid blog...

American Idol - Top 3

Alright, here we go... at work today we were discussing that most of us have an inkling that Phillip may not make it past tonight. Just a feeling. I mean, the producers obviously want a Jessica - Joshua finale.

Three rounds: round one is judges' choice, round two is contestant choice, round three is Jimmy's choice.

Randy picked "I'd Rather Go Blind" for Joshua. It was a Joshua performance. That's that.

Jennifer chose "My All" for Jessica and she rambled SO LONG about it. It was irritating. Pretty choice. I enjoyed her more than Joshua.

Steven picked "Beggin'" for Phillip. I'm so happy that Steven got to choose for him. Oh Phillip... I really have no words when you're up there.

Time for contestant choice...

Joshua chose "Imagine" and my whole living room groaned (brother's girlfriend is joining us tonight). Well, hubby laughed because this song is untouchable for me. Husband said he's bored by it. I've heard a lot of versions of this and this one isn't my favorite.

Jessica got ballsy and picked "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing." Another one that's dangerous for me. I love this one. Actually I like it. I approve. Well, I didn't enjoy the last bit.

I actually watched Phillip's hometown visit. ADORABLE. Seriously. I almost cried.

Phillip picked "Disease." Brother's girlfriend gasped. We may have a fan. *swoon*

Jimmy's picks are up...

For Joshua he picked "No More Drama." Meh.

For Jessica he chose "I'll Be There." Good. Better than Joshua to me. But I'm so over Joshua. Obviously.

For my Phillip he went with "We've Got Tonight." Yeah, I said "MY" Phillip. Woo... okay... breathe. Holy wow. I have nothing PG to say about that performance. Oh my... it's warm in here.

So even though I have the same inkling as my girls at work, I'm holding out hope that our finale will be Phillip and Jessica. Then it'll be worth watching.

Tuesday Tunes

I am currently OBSESSED with this song. It's my favorite Kings of Leon song. And I'm working on getting my cousin's band to cover it at an upcoming show. Because they could totally do it.

Happy Tuesday. I'm off to a baseball game with my kiddos. No joke. We're watching our local minor league team today. :)

Weekly Manicure

So I had a problem last night... I waited until about 9:30 to touch my nails and I was feeling incredibly lazy. But this still isn't bad for lazy...

It's a peachy color. I had a different plan but ya know... no motivation and all. It's still cute. I still enjoy it.

I'm gearing up for so much over here. Field trip tomorrow, open house Thursday, baseball Sunday... finishing a TON of work by next Monday. Eek. Seventeen more school days until I can lounge and read and work out and watch movies and go to baseball games...

American Idol - Top 4

We're already in the top 4. So glad too, because by this point I usually don't want to put in the effort of watching the whole episode. haha

So Skylar's gone. There's that. I'm happy, obviously. I also can't wait to see Phillip tonight because my friend was already texting me mid-swoon. Sweet.

Idols get more than one song again. Apparently the first theme is "California Dreamin'." Whatever THAT means... oh songs about California. Or artist from here. Then they're doing the song they wish they wrote.

Phillip is first. Thank you for not making me wait. :) He picked CCR... good choice. No guitar? Oh well, at this point he still makes me sqeal. And like I said, smart song choice for him. I love him. I care not what the judges say so let's move on...

So Randy had his wardrobe department make a jacket from a picnic blanket... that's special.

Hollie is up. And singing Journey... yeeeee! She chose "Faithfully." The wind machine that they constantly give her makes me laugh. I liked it, but not as much as I wanted to. She still did a damn good job. I think I just wanted her to blow it up.

Now is Joshua. He picked Josh Groban... slightly predictable. But oh well. Husband commented that he always looks like singing hurts. I love having people to watch with me. He sounds good of course, but again I'm distracted and slightly put off by the fact that he has an entire production for his performance. The producers aren't even hiding that they want him to win at this point. Over it.

Jessica is finishing the first round. She picked Etta James. Without even hearing I'm gonna throw this out there... she needs to be younger. Younger choices could be good for her. She sounded good of course. But everyone expected that.

Duet time... "This Love" by Phillip and Joshua. Can I have a version with just Phillip? And maybe we'll recreate the video? *wink wink* I don't enjoy them together. Wish I could. But I don't. I love Phillip and all the screams that start when he sings.

Hollie and Jessica are singing "Eternal Flame." Funny to me because do they even know who The Bangles are??? I grew up on this. They sound good together though so I'm liking them more. I also have to say I think Hollie sounds better on this one.

Group performance singing Foreigner. Meh. Phillip was my highlight of course. :)

Round two... start!

Phillip... *swoooon* Singing "Volcano" by Damien Rice. No clue. But he has his guitar again. :) Oh wow. I can't breathe or function right now. Wow. Just wow. Holy... oh... I think I have a new favorite song. Period.

Hollie picked Bonnie Raitt. One of my favorite songs. I'm excited. Aaaaand yes. I love it. If I weren't voting for Phillip I'd vote for her.

Joshua's turn. He's singing "It's a Man's Man's Man's World." Good choice. It fits his voice. this is actually the first time I've enjoyed him in awhile.

Jessica finishes it up for the night. She picked "And I Am Telling You." Good choice. Feels predictable. And still leaves me wanting her to be young.

So my bottom two (because that's what I'm picking)...
1. Joshua
2. Hollie

I don't want Hollie to go so I'm definitely hoping that Joshua goes home. We shall see.

Tuesday Tunes

So I'm slightly obsessed with this song. I love it. And it popped up all weekend which just made it plant itself in my head. The video isn't terribly impressive, but just start the video and then work in another tab while you listen. That's what I do.

 Back to work today. SO glad I took the extra day off after my weekend. I needed it.

Happy Tuesday!

Flash Mob!!!

So as a part of the nerd fest last week we had a flash mob. Not just any flash mob, one that ended in a proposal. Here's the best video I've found so far.

If you want to see me just look at the girl in the white shirt centered between the couple when he's proposing. Guess I picked a good spot. haha

Weekly Manicure

It's the return of crappy webcam pics!!! :)

Navy and pink. I was really feeling the navy last week so I stuck with that as the base color again. The pink was inspired by my fun dress I wore for my girlfriend's graduation party yesterday.

So my weekend didn't happen EXACTLY as planned, but I still had a lot of fun. Took today off so I'm spending it with the husband. Now that he's maybe FINALLY feeling better. I'm thinking movie, maybe lunch. Whatevs.

Happy Monday!

Further Evidence of My Nerd Status

I participated in our city's first (hopefully annual) Star Wars Pub Crawl!!!

Met so many cool people that night and saw some awesome costumes. I also got to be in my first flash mob!!!! Sadly no good video to show yet. I'm workin' on it.

I don't know the guy who dressed as Lando at the top but he was way too legit for me to NOT post a picture. I mean, really.

Good thing my husband finds my nerdiness endearing...

American Idol - Top 5

Sorry, you don't get a legit, snarky blog tonight. My household is sick (by that I mean husband and brother) and I'm trying to avoid it because I have a weekend of amazingness planned.

So I relinquish the couch and am going to bed.

I did watch snippets of performances online. Here's my quickie take:

Phillip... oh honey. While you can't possibly top DMB last week (at least for me), you are still sexy. *kisses* Can I just say I melted a bit when he and Joshua sang "You've Lost That Loving Feeling." I've had that badly sang to me more than once, but I can appreciate why it's a must at karaoke when you're crushing on a girl. Phillip, feel free to sing that to me ANYTIME.

Skylar... go away. Now.

Hollie... look at you girl!!! I'm lovin' you.

Jessica... I want to like you more. You are talented, but I'm not your target audience and I'm starting to feel it.

Joshua... well done of course. I've heard that I'm not the only one who believes the producers are pushing you for a win.

Obviously I only watched snippets of everyone BUT Phillip. He could be on continuous play in my life and I'd be ecstatic. Seriously, he makes me feel like a ridiculous high school girl. *fanning self*

I'll give you a bottom two because I just will. Holding out hope here...

1. Skylar
2. Jessica (just a feeling, not really based on anything)

Typhoid out.

Tuesday Tunes

I feel like I should just change this to "Tart it up Tuesday." lol I happen to choose skanky songs a lot. :)

I went to a burlesque show Saturday (!). So much fun. Met up with a girlfriend there and the whole atmosphere had me remembering this CD. So I popped it in the car and this song came up!


I kinda kept the CD in and have had a couple days of guilty pleasure music. :)
