Monday Morning, Blah Blah Blah...

I'm feeling pretty joyless today. Which is fine. Not every day has to be filled with all sorts of meaning and vigor, sometimes one needs to just be and exist. My talk breaks this morning are less than stellar, and you know what? That's fine as well. I got WAY too much sun yesterday, I got that ill feeling last night where in a rush I was acutely aware of the fact that my entire haed felt like it was on fire. This led me to think "Oh... I think I'll skip dinner and go lie down."

::attempts to get giddy & bouncy::

The fair is coming!! The fair is coming!!

I love the fair, if for no other reason than for the sights and smells and watching the kids have a blast. Watching the rides is kind of cool, but there are few that I'll actually get on anymore. The Himalaya, Tilt-A-Whirl, and Round Up I'd ride - anything else is questionable. I have to go this year in the afternoon with the kids and then again in the evening when the midway is all lit up and glittery. It makes me happy.

I'm looking for a couple of things online that I need to make a certain someone special his birthday present, and if I cannot get it sent to me fast enough then it might end up a Giftmas™ present and I'll have to go with plan "B" for his birthday present. I found the stuff this morning, it's just a question of getting it here in time.

I'm almost finished reading "Let's Roll", the book Lisa Beamer wrote about her husband

I'm almost finished reading <i>"Let's Roll"</i>, the book Lisa Beamer wrote about her husband <a href="http://www.beamerfoundation.org/"<b>Todd Beamer</b></a>, one of the people on Flight 93 that was killed trying to overtake the terrorists before crashing in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I reccommend it, it is a truly engrossing story that I'm relating to on many different levels.
