I borrowed this post idea from this lovely lady.
1. This weekend my friend Liz from college came to visit with her one year old son. Besides the fact that it was amazing to see Liz since it's been over a year since I saw her at her baby shower in St. Louis, it was crazy to have her son Niko running around our house. It totally gave me a glimpse of what having our own child would be like.
2. Our dog Schmoo was really good with Niko, but Niko totally liked the cats more than the dog. Every time a cat would come into the room he would look at it and start meowing.
3. One of my students brought me a cannoli this morning for no reason. It was the best cannoli I've ever eaten, but it came from a Greek place, which seems weird to me.
4. I read almost everything that my students read at school aloud to them, which means I'm currently in the middle of The Catcher in the Rye, And Then There Were None, and Mr. Popper's Penguins.
5. I love watching The Voice because I like seeing the judges bicker with each other. I would totally choose Blake because he is hilarious.
6. Speaking of The Voice, last year CeeLo had a cat when he was doing interviews. This year he has a bird. They did show the cat once in the car as he was getting to the studio, but I totally miss the cat.
7. Have you watched the show Breaking Amish? I watched the first episode and have the second episode saved on my DVR. I'm not sure how much I'll like it when they actually go to New York, but the first episode was so interesting.
8. Can you tell I've been watching too much TV?
9. Last week, Schmoo was barking at something outside. I went outside to see what it was and saw him doing the walk forward and back up because I'm scared thing that dogs do. What was he barking at? A flower. I figured it out when he finally sniffed it and then stopped freaking out.
10. I'm in the middle of reading Les Miserables in hopes that I'll finish it before the movie comes out. I really like the parts that actually have a plot, but I would totally cut out the 20-30 page chunks that describe things like Waterloo or convents, which barely tie into the plot.
