Silver Lining Saturday, Part XXII

I'm here and still thankful!

A couple of reasons why this post is a bit later than usual:

I've got that Saturday morning LSAT class. I'm just proctoring tests for this class on Saturday mornings, and it forces me to do something relatively quiet for nearly 4 hours when I'm not saying, "Stop work on section ___ and put down your pencils. For the next 35 minutes you are to work on only section ____. Turn the page and begin". As such, I got a lot of work done because there is very little distraction (you Word Twist people, you!).

Mag and I watched a weird movie this afternoon. "Run Lola Run". Have you seen it? It's weird, but I think I liked it.

Also, the weather's been unseasonably warm again this week. I went for another short-sleeved bike ride yesterday, and no one tried to run me over. It's hard to get much work done, but refer back to my first point.

I could've had free seats to see High School Musical On Ice with a friend for Monday - MLK day, kids are out of school. My kids wouldn't go see High School Musical ANYTHING if you paid them... well, maybe if you paid them... but still, it's nice to be offered the tickets.

The laptop was on the fritz, but Wolfgang plugged it in yesterday to troubleshoot and it just started working again. Okay, I'll take it.

The washing machine was on the fritz, but I put a load of laundry in today and it just started working again. Somebody's messin' with me.


  1. was that the original german version or the newer english one? the german one is better except for the pesky german

  2. I can't believe you've had such crazy warm weather. Glad you've been able to get out and enjoy it.

    Machines and appliances that fix themselves? You are lucky!

  3. With all of the "malfunctions", it sounds like you've got a gremlin loose in the house. Of course your computer problems could be part of Microsoft's evil plan...

    I've seen Run Lola Run several times but keep missing the beginning. Strange but funny movie. Watched The Five People You Meet in Heaven this afternoon.

  4. short sleeve bike ride???

    Wow. Enjoy!

  5. sounds like you had a heck of a good day, Abby :D

  6. Girl, it is 73 degrees here right now and even *I* am not in short sleeves! Brrrr!

    I know, my skin is onionskin-thin.

  7. Yay - Run Lola Run is a great film! I saw it with a friend when it was in the movies, and our movie junk food remained untouched the entire time because we were too busy staring at the screen...

  8. This movie is in my Netflix queue, but I can't remember why I put it there. It may have been highly suggested by the site based on stuff I already liked. We shall see!
