[Error: unknown template qotd]Rather than inflict on you my actual earworm (Superfreak people and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy). I'll give you the last song playing on my iPod.

I searched for a video, but couldn't find one with CK...but since CK and Jensen are best buds, I figure Supernatural works just as well. So get THIS stuck in your head! And just cuz I'm an overachiever today--two videos and the lyrics.

House Rules by Kane featuring Christian Kane (seriously how do they do this? Is it Kane or is it Chris Kane or is it Christian Kane?)

When I tried to do a cut--it deleted my entire entry so yeah sorry about this.

House Rules by Christian Kane

So you’re tired and beat 
And you’ve worked all week 
And you need a place you can let it  go. 
Where the girls go wild 
And the boys play hard 
And you need a little more than just the radio. 
Well here’s your open invitation 
With just a couple regulations. 
Let me warn you son, only come to have fun 
We don’t take kindly to serious. 
So leave your troubles at the door
Unless you want some in here.

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight 
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high. 
It's a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock 'n roll  rodeo. 
We don’t tolerate no sitting around 
Everybody’s dancin’, groovin’ and getting on down. 
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
You better read the house rules. 

Around eleven o’clock when the front door locks 
And the boys start raising the bottle. 
Where the girls do the thing with the Mardis Gras beads
Yeah, You know they’re gonna show 'em if they got ’em.
No matter what your story, a good time is mandatory. 
Well rule number 7 says don’t touch the women
But they can grab whatever they want to.

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight 
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high. 
It's a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock' n roll  rodeo. 
We don’t tolerate no sitting around 
Everybody’s dancing,’ groovin’ and getting on down. 
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
You better read the house rules. 

No such thing as last call. 
We pick’ em up when they fall .
We share the same bathroom stall, 
Says the sign on the wall.    (1, 2, 3) 

Welcome to my house, buckle up tight 
Everybody sings and drinks, laughs & gets high. 
It's a country music, a little soul, it’s a rock n roll  rodeo. 
We don’t tolerate no sitting around 
Everybody’s dancin’, groovin’ and getting on down. 
So before you come in here with some kind of attitude
Boy, before you come a walkin' in here with any kind of attitude 
You better read the house rules. 

You better read the house rules.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I do. I donate through work to a variety of child-friendly organizations, whatever is being supported at that moment (d'oh I'm a teacher).

But I give my major time and money to Soldiers' Angels--quick and dirty--it's a group that supports US active duty soldiers that are currently serving; mostly overseas. I'm an official Angel to one soldier and an unofficial to four more--I send letters (TLCs) and packages and just generally try to keep their spirits up. In addition I belong to Cards Plus team which means that when I can I send extra TLC cards and I did belong to the WTLC team which meant I wrote to soldiers that have been wounded and have been sent home.

Why do I do it?
For a couple of reasons,
1) it's hard to be away from home--even if you chose it and not get any mail and watch your buddies get mail. The majority of our soldiers either get very little or no mail and this way they get at least one letter a week or a whole batch when their mail catches up to them.
2) I might not support the war, but I give major credit to the men and women who decided to put their lives on the line to protect us. So this is a way I can help them.
3) Most of you know I come from a military family. I'm pretty lucky this time--no one who is active duty is currently overseas (although if this keeps up at least 1 if not 2 of them will be headed over) so this is kinda my way of giving back for being grateful. Besides if they were overseas, I hope that someone would do the same for them.

So I guess that's it. We're always looking for new Angels--so follow the link and join us!

[Error: unknown template qotd]I would tell...but then again I was the girl cheated on and I wish I had been told sooner than I was.
shanachie13: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Nope I'm part Irish...I always wear Green :-)

I wonder what happens if you wear Orange today?

shanachie13: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Goonies
All the Star Wars (the original--not the new ones)
Dirty Dancing
Monster Squad (This was my comfort movie when I was sick)

Lost Boys and The Rescue a little bit more.

Yup still love 'em all!

[Error: unknown template qotd] devil's half acre--way farther out that the boondocks (thanks, [ profile] littleowl1 !)
podunkville--in otherwords hicksville or nowhere
dumb as a board--really dense
beat a dead horse--you've repeated the story way too many times
Wally World--Wal-Mart

I also use military slang--both because I watch a lot of military shows, write military stories, and grew up knowing people in the military--which always causing people to do a double take (especially when you automatically say "Alpha, Bravo, Charlie instead of something else for A, B, C, etc.).

I know there's more, but that just gives you some examples. :-D

[Error: unknown template qotd] yeah...can I plead the 5th? Anyway...yeah I'm the Snake...I wanna be a Dragon! But seriously, my family tends towards Vietnamese not Chinese (for those who know me for obvious reasons), but Chinese first...

Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Snake are seductive, gregarious, introverted, generous, charming, good with money, analytical, insecure, jealous, slightly dangerous, smart, they rely on gut feelings, are hard-working and intelligent.

Aren't gregarious and introverted like oxymorons? Or at least that's what every personality test has been telling me for years, but yes...I would say I'm on board with everything except the "good with money" thing. I suck at the money thing. And as long as it doesn't involve math I'm analytical.

Now Vietnamese:

And I'm still a snake by the way, people!
Just thought you might want the Vietnamese ideas of it though:
Year: 1977
Attribute: đinh
Animal: tỵ(rắn)
Animal (english): snake
Description: Deep thinker, wise, mystic, graceful, soft-spoken, sensual, creative, prudent, shrewd, ambitious, elegant, cautious, responsible, calm, strong, constant, purposeful. Can be loner, bad communicator, possessive, hedonistic, self-doubting, distrustful, mendacious.

And, yeah, I highlighted the ones I disagree with, cuz I'm tired.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Um. I think so. I mean... would you seriously want to be encased in rotting flesh? Think about it... Ew. So Yes. I think being a zombie would be considered suffering. Ew. Yeah. Just...ew.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I cannot remember ever having to hide books from my moms. They were pretty accepting of anything I wanted to read. There were times when they would read the book first and then let me read it, but that's all they can remember. My father, on the other hand, hated most of the books I read--he found them inappropriate for a girl. So I would purposely read them in front of him to annoy him (yes I was an evil child.)

I can remember one incident though, when I was in fifth grade, when my mother got called in for a parent conference. I was reading in class. (Horrors!)

My mother said "Isn't this a reading class?"
"Well, yes."
"Is she completing her work?"
"Is she bothering the other students?"
"Is she causing any trouble?"

Gotta love the stupidity of the school system I grew up in.

shanachie13: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I was teaching. It was the second week of school, but the first day of pre-school for my brother and I had driven him to school that morning since he was attending pre-school in my building. He had played in my classroom before school and then I walked him across the hall and peeled him off me when he started crying.

I didn't know at first what had happened. Since I was teaching first grade at that time, I didn't have the television or radio on. I was doing circle time with my students when the kindergarten teacher came in and told me that the 7th/8th graders had been doing current events (watching CNN) and had seen the first plane hit. I remember feeling disbelief and thinking it was a hoax or a movie stunt. Then when we found out it was real, I remember frantically dialing my Gram, trying to find out if my uncle had gone into the city for work that day. All of the cell circuits were out through since we were so close to the City. The room mothers for some of the older grades were called in and they started the emergency chain; calling the parents and then the emergency contacts to dismiss the school. My brother came into my classroom and I sat him at my desk with a coloring book, then called first one mom and then the other to reassure them we were fine (my school was about 10 minutes from the harbor).

Once the school was dismissed, we made our way home--avoiding most of the major roads and then I remember watching CNN and seeing a replay of the Towers falling. I didn't watch for long though because Jon was so young and he just didn't understand. It was hours before I had reassurance that my uncle was fine (he had decided to stay home that day to spend time with his grandchildren) and then I found out my cousin had been sent into the City with his firefighting unit. I also found out a day or so later that a childhood friend had been working on the 82nd floor. In a freak turn of events, his boss had sent him out on an errand just five minutes before the first plane hit so he was just leaving the building when it happened.

I don't know how I feel about it now. It still hurts in a way and sometimes I still get that feeling of disbelief. I went into the City a few days after 9/11 and it was a shock not to see the Towers, (even now it seems weird not to see them on the skyline). I guess I'm kinda surprised that the day hasn't been made some sort of memorial. I know we always have a moment of silence in the schools I work in, but it doesn't seem enough. And it really bothers me that nothing has been done about replacing the buildings. I understand that they don't want to take away from what was there, but as far as I know there's not even a permanent memorial there. I can't face going to Ground Zero, but that's because I came so close to losing people I love and my heart goes out to all those who did lose someone.

I know how lucky I am.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Reading, writing, and traveling... cuz I assume if I could live forever, I would have the money to do it... I'd see the world and write a ton of novels... Sis, wanna join me?
shanachie13: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Sleeping...not having to get up and go to work.  Other than that being sick pretty much sux.  And on that note...I have to go back to work after my vacation... *sigh* I need more sleep.
shanachie13: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I read, write, watch television, talk to my friends on-line (okay so that ones not by myself, but I'm alone in the house), play with my dog, sew.  I dunno I have a lot of things I do, but I can't think of anything else, but those are the main things I do.

I've been looking at these "Writer's Blocks" for a few weeks now and thinking, should answer that one or this one, but haven't bothered. So I decided I would answer today's.

I figured I'd start by making everyone jealous. I don't have to start my holiday shopping today. I'm already done! About a week ago on a Sunday, I went out early in the morning (well early for me) and did all of my shopping in about two hours. Then I went over to my Gramma's for our Sunday family dinner (a tradition in my family) and afterwards I went back out and finished my shopping. I still have to go back to one store and pick up something I ordered for my one cousin. *grins* but that's it.

So have a good day y'all. I'm not setting foot in a store except for the grocery store unless I'm getting paid to do it until after Christmas!
