Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Are you wearing green? I am!

Working today. I’ve been having trouble with my blog since wordpress got upgraded–specifically, accessing my blog using Internet Explorer on the computers at work. I could log in, but I couldn’t *do* anything. I solved the problem today by downloading the portable version of Firefox for my USB key. Looks good so far! 🙂

I had a nice mellow weekend at home. I got all domestic, making chocolate chip cookies on Saturday and meatballs on Sunday. I also did laundry, read a bit, watched some TV, and didn’t spend a whole lot of time online. I did play on facebook here and there (I have two ongoing Scrabble games–feel free to grab me if you want to play!) as well as some other stuff.

I had a fun day teaching math at the middle school on Friday. The 7th graders celebrated Pi Day by decorating digits of Pi to hang on the wall, playing games, and eating pie that they brought in! (Yes, I ate a piece, but only one!) I can’t believe they paid me for that. 😉

And that’s the news on this end. Hope you’re all having a happy St. Pat’s! Enjoy some of my favorite irish-esque music, eh? (I might add some videos when I get home and can access YouTube.)


Great Big Sea

Carbon Leaf


BufBloPoFo Topic for Day 8: What are you listening to these days? New stuff? Old stuff? This isn’t a hipster competition; I just want to know what’s in everyone’s ears out there. Playlist me. Or, if you don’t feel like making suggestions, open up your ipod on shuffle and just jot down the first ten songs that pop out.

Well, since I haven’t done my reading, watching, listening thing in quite a while, it’s been some time since I’ve blogged about what I’m listening to.

Bon Jovi–Lost Highway. Samantha recently gifted me with a copy of this CD. Awesome. I’ve only listened to it once, but I like what I heard.

A copy of the “Cleaning my Room Mix” sent to me by Miss Shortskirt (Jessica). Again, only listened to once, but lots of fun. 🙂

The soundtracks from Once and Juno.

In general, I frequently list to the “erin’s favorites” list on my ipod. Here’s a sample:

  • Super Trouper-ABBA
  • I Will-The Beatles
  • The Longest Time-Billy Joel
  • What About Everything-Carbon Leaf
  • On the Verge-Collin Raye
  • Here on Earth (I’ll Have My Cake)-Crash Test Dummies
  • Cowboy Take Me Away-Dixie Chicks
  • Solar Circle Girl-Einstein’s Sister
  • The Girl That’s Never Been-Escape Key
  • I’m a Rover-Great Big Sea
  • Striptease-Hawksley Workman

  • Black Horse and the Cherry Tree-KT Tunstall

That’s it for me. Happy weekend!
