***General Apathy and Major Boredom singin' "whatever and ever, amen."

I don't know what it is...maybe the fact that at this point in the winter we've been cooped up in the house too long without enough fresh air and sunshine...but I am so bored. The daily routine has become mind-numbing and I look forward to going grocery shopping just for the change of scenery. It's not too bad outside, just very cold lately, but it's bright enough and the fresh snow is quite pretty. Maybe I should bundle Daughter up and take her out in it for a couple of minutes. Meh. I don't even feel like doing that. Soooooooo bored.

But! Did you watch the ice dancing last night? That whole thing with the frigid Italian woman and her partner who accidentally dropped her? Whoooo! High drama at the Olympic games. It was really very sweet when they finished and she knelt on the ice in front of him. He deserved it since she was such a bee-yatch to him the day before. Their outfits, though? Still a thumbs-down from me. Why can't they just wear something tasteful and not so weird?

Thanks for playing along with the true/false meme. Here are the answers

  1. In college someone dared me to climb up inside the Golden Dome. I snuck up there but panicked when I heard a noise - I accidentally dropped my dad's old pocket knife and wish I could get it back. True story, but not about me. This was my dad. He really did it and got in big trouble, too. My dad is lucky he ever graduated with all the stupid crap he did!
  2. My ex-boyfriend found God and wrote a book about it. I helped him edit it before we broke up, and he dedicated the book to me. This is it! Any of you who are avid readers of Christian literature can pick up a copy of "Permissive Ignorance" and find several references to yours truly throughout. In the dedication/thanks section I am mentioned/thanked just after the author's family. When he mentions the 'girlfriend' in the text, that's me.
  3. I am named after someone famous. Nope. I am named after my two great-grandmothers.
  4. In 1998 I started running, and when I ran the Chase Corporate Challenge in 1999, I smoked the competition and came in 3rd. I wish! I did start running in '98 and I did run the Corporate Challenge in '99, but I was quite slow and just proud of myself for finishing it.
Well, guess I'd better go shower while Daughter naps. Then it's lunch, laundry, vacuuming, groceries, blah, blah, blah. Here's hoping your day is more thrilling than mine!

***Can you name the artist and song? Hmmm? Can you?
