Saturday - And it's Movie Review Time

Well once again the boy has picked a pretty good movie to take me too. Caleb had been saying he wanted to see Madagascar 2 so I surprised him when I picked him up from school yesterday and we went right away (after stopping to pick up some snacks at the local Circle K that is). It picks up where the first one left off, but the group is leaving to head back to New York, or so they think, and end up in Africa. Pretty cute movie. You'll enjoy it more than the first one, but with some crude humor, hence the PG rating. It is cute though and I found myself laughing out loud plenty of times. Once again though, I recommend not spending more than the matinee price.

I spent the last three days off and either not sleeping, or sleeping the night away. I swear I couldn't stay awake to save my life last night and fell asleep about 8 or 8:30. I attempted a couple of times to get up and stay up since I have to work tonight, but my body said "No! No more! Sleep you must!" lol. So here I am up since 8:30 this morning. I guess I will try and take a nap later on as I have to work the next three nights.

I guess I didn't tell you that I got my job promotion plus a pretty decent raise. I found out on last Friday. They came up from their original offer and I accepted. We had our first Clinical Coordinator meeting Thursday night, and they want me to orient for relief House Supervisor. That would be another notch in my resume so why not. I laughed when they asked me and said "do you think i will make it through the night without telling someone to kiss my ass?" I have a problem with being diplomatic when doctors call screaming, but I suppose I will have to bite my tongue to a degree. But at any rate, I will be orienting for the first several times so there is hope, lol.

Oh I am all set ticket wise for Thanksgiving. Looks like I will make it back from Texas after all, lol, but we will be staying a whole week. I can't believe how much it is costing to fly this year! Oh well, it will be worth it to spend time with my family, at least I think so right now, ha ha. But the down side is I HAVE TO FLY! OMGosh, I really hate to fly, right Betty? Oh man, I gotta move closer.

Yesterday was my baby sister's birthday. Happy Birthday Kathryn!!!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. If you had to fill in as a substitute teacher at a local middle school, what subject would you be most comfortable teaching? History or Science.

2. When you were in school, what was a better indication of your true understanding of what you were learning: class participation, the accuracy of your homework, or your test scores? Class Participation.

3. You meet someone for the first time and have a brief conversation with them. If you run into them the next afternoon, how likely are you to remember their name? Well it depends on what kind of impact they had on me, but I usually can remember the next day.

There Are 2 Gaps in Your Knowledge

Where you have gaps in your knowledge:


Where you don't have gaps in your knowledge:


5. If you had “gaps” in your knowledge, did you expect to have them where they were predicted? If you had none, which of the listed subjects would be the ones you’d most expect gaps to be? I expected Art and Philosophy...some science.

6. If you could go back to school for one semester free of charge and “try again” with any subject, which one would you choose and why? Oh I’d choose Spanish instead of French for a foreign language. Would really help me out now living in the SW.


  1. thanks for the movie review, De! glad you and Caleb had some fun time together to see it! congrats on your promotion and raise; thanking the Lord on that one!!!

    you should be getting to be an old pro by now with flying, but hey, I'm with you on this; at least the reward, seeing family, will be worth it :)


  2. Congrats on your promotion.
    I love the first movie, and hope to see the new one when it comes out on video.
