Oh boy, it's been a while since I've posted. I'm really bored already today. I've given up my efforts at dealing with the old people at the gym, so it'll be at least another hour and a half before I head over there and actually have something to do. I've already done the dishes, and the laundry for the day. I scrubbed down the entire house yesterday. All the grocery shopping is done for the week. It's looking very dreary outside, so I don't dare go out on my bike. I finished reading Harry Potter. Hmmmm... what to do, what to do. Yup. Mhmmmm. See ya later.

It's 5:30 am and I've been up for an hour. Now, I know for most of you this would probably be normal. BUT - I don't have kids. ALSO - I don't have work right now. So, I find it incredibly absurd that I'm awake. And I went to bed at midnight. But for some darn reason I'm up and WIDE AWAKE and completely irritated with myself. Normally, I'd have company in about 15 minutes, but this also just happens to be the day that Mike has to go straight to a job site, which means he gets to go in later, which means he won't be up til 7:00. Bah!

As for me, I'll be out the door by 7:00, on my way to State College to enjoy the festivities that are "Arts Fest" with my lil sis Bird. Soooooo I have about an hour and a half to kill. Hmmmmm...

I've recently been outed on the WWW as a "nut". In order to better understand this labeling, I looked "nut" up in the dictionary and was none too happy with what I found. Here are some particularly offensive excerpts, and I apologize in advance to the faint of heart:

1. a dry fruit consisting of an edible kernel or meat enclosed in a woody or leathery shell.
5. a block, usually of metal and generally square or hexagonal, perforated with a threaded hole so that it can be screwed down on a bolt to hold together objects through which the bolt passes.
8. Slang.
a. a foolish, silly, or eccentric person.
b. Offensive. an insane person; psychotic.
9. Slang: Vulgar. a testis.

Those words are taken directly from, people, and I don't think a website as virtuous as that is gonna lie. So, to those who would believe that I am indeed a nut, Bah! I am neither a dry fruit containing edible goodies, a block of metal, a foolish, silly person, psychotic, or a testis! Thank you very much!!

Oh... wait... maybe the one who outed me was driving at the "silly" part of that... Hmmm. Yeah. Now that I think about it, ok.... maybe I'm overreacting just a tad. HOWEVER, just for clarification purposes, we can avoid the term "nut" to make sure I'm not lumped in with the loony bin types out there. I prefer the label, "amazingly ridiculous" and "ridiculously good looking" (that's a Zoolander reference for those who haven't seen it... I wouldn't want to be called a nut and a narcissist!!).
