Oh, no! Davy Jones passed away of a heart attack.

So sad!

Listening to certain music is always helpful when writing fic chapters.

I've been listening to Breaking Benjamin on a loop lately.

Wow, my current fic head-soundtrack is rather angry.

Because you can never have too many good things in your life, and because we tend to overlook the good stuff far too often, here, in no particular order (and for no other reason than I felt like it), are 101 things that make my life awesome! I was surprised by how short a time it took me to list them all. (The best part was I probably could have kept going!)

It was sad enough to hear of Farrah Fawcett's passing this morning, but this . . .

Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest at the age of 50.

Regardless of what he became later in life, he was truly one of my first favorite performers of all time. Another supremely talented star, with an all too tragic end.

May he rest in peace.

ETA: Larry King just made an excellent point: by next week so many people are going to make the tabloids explode with their horror stories and "newly revealed" scandals about Michael Jackson. For the brief time that we have between now and then, it's best to remember him for the good things that he did - he was an undeniable talent and gave so much to the world of music.

Sometimes I think I won't warm to the students in my current school the way I did in my old one. The sheer size of all the classes takes some of the personal touches and intimacy away. But sometimes I think they are every bit as sweet as my former students.

As we were preparing for final exams, I chatted with the kids about random things. I told one group in passing that I was disappointed to not be going to the New Kids on the Block concert two nights ago. (NKOTB had been my first concert *ever* and I had really been looking forward to being among those screaming, fangirling 30-something women who still remember their crushes on Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight from twenty years ago.) Sadly, it coincided with my cousin's high school graduation, which I needed to attend.

One of my students, who was going to the concert, came in the next day with a wrapped gift for me. The little sweetie had bought me a t-shirt at the show! (Apparently she had collaborated with another girl, and both were very adorable and excited to see my reaction.)

Sometimes, the students drive me crazy, but other times I love my kids a lot.


In another (though related) story, the guy I've recently been seeing was also at the concert. (He was working though - he was reviewing it for the newspaper.) I find it interesting, however, that instead of me ditching the guy I'm dating to spend an evening with my first crushes, the guy I'm dating ditches me . . . to spend and evening with my first crushes.

Weird.

Normally, it's Lost that's got me talking at this hour on a Wednesday. And for as awesome as the the time-frak that show continues to be this season, tonight I'm all about the Scrubs finale.

My Finale )

Bravo, Scrubs! Thank you for eight wonderful years, and a truly fitting sendoff!

Because misheard lyrics are always funny, and because I went to see them on Saturday so I've been listening to them a lot lately, here is a little amusement for your Tuesday afternoon.

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire (except . . . not)




And, in case you're curious, the *actual* lyrics )

Hee!

The new laptop has been very shiny so far - but oh, so hard to get used to in more ways than one. First, it has Vista, which has been a little confusing to navigate so far.

The keyboard is also very, very different than my other computer, so typing with it is *much* slower than I'm used to. I keep hitting all the wrong buttons. I'm not used to a full keyboard - with that number pad on the side. And where the heck is the delete key? It used to be right by my pinky finger! Oh, there's two of them now? Grr!

But overall, I'm pretty happy with it and, no - I haven't disappeared completely.

I'll be leaving for Philly in a few minutes. Brother, friends and I have tickets to see Kings of Leon tonight. Should be fun!

It's always funny when song lyrics can be mistaken for something else. Some of my favorites are:
"Excuse me while I kiss this guy" (Jimi Hendrix),
"Hold me close, young Tony Danza" (Elton John),
and "There's nothing that a hundred men on Mars could ever do" (Toto).

Now there's this:

Oh baby, hoggify!

(Whoever April is, she probably had a really fun birthday!)

Went to see Elton John last night for the third time. He is so amazingly awesome.

 Elton John - Your Song


Also, PSU won yesterday.

BIG.

They had me worried a little in the beginning, but by the end I was screaming excitedly at the radio (since I had to resort to listening to the game in my car in the parking lot prior to last night's concert). I would have loved to have seen that safety!

Right before the concert began, several members of the audience must have gotten word that we'd won because "WE ARE . . . PENN STATE" started ringing through the arena.

I'm not sure Sir Elton had any clue what *that* was all about.

This may seem a strange question after such a historic moment, but does anyone know where the music was from that played after Obama's acceptance speech?

It's driving me crazy that I can't place where I've heard it!


ETA: Huh. Music and politics. That's probably the strangest combination of tags I've used on LJ. :)

ETA 2: Yay! Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] pfeifferpack, for the Brooks & Dunn song! Now all I have to figure out is the instrumental piece that played after. *wracks brain*
