This morning Tony had to leave early to go to an interview for his Dental Assisting Externship so I had a morning that was different from our normal routine. I woke up about ten minutes earlier than I typically do and, after my shower donned Tony’s bathrobe (cause it is fluffier than mine) and made myself a bowl of grits. MMMMM grits. I then sat in front of the computer and did a little blog surfing. It was really relaxing. It kind of made me reevaluate my morning routine.

As I have mentioned before, I really pride myself in being up and out the door in 30 minutes. I have never understood the people who take a long time getting ready. I must admit I still don’t really understand those people. However, I have a new respect for the people who get ready fast so that they have time to lounge for a little while. I have never been a coffee drinker (the occasional cup here and there but it isn’t something I do ever week let alone every day) and, now that I have started eating breakfast again, I generally have something that I throw in my bag and eat at my desk. As I am truly not a morning person, getting up early to have a relaxing breakfast may be very hard to do daily, but I really should try it at least once a week.

Now, I haven’t gotten good at this leisurely activity and the little early I woke up wasn’t quite enough. I may have to aim for 20 minutes instead of 10. This means I could just get up at the same time as Tony and while he showers I can have breakfast and relax. See today I left a little late but figured that since I was here until 7:30 last night it didn’t really matter. I was only going to be about five minutes late. Then my train was delayed and it began to matter a little but it was still ok although I walked into the office about 25 minutes late. Obviously, this was mostly the fault of the train, not the fault of breakfast. I really think that I will have to try this new plan. It kind of makes me feel like an old person though.

Because I worked so late last night I had to record Top Model and Project Runway. I really don’t have much to say about Top Model except that they have kicked off two of the girls I actually liked in the first two episodes. I really am trying to like this season but I am having a hard time. They are just boring. That Monique makes me want to die. She gives Chicago a bad name. Project Runway was great though. I am so happy that they are letting all four designers go to the finals. I was really scared seeing Michael and Jeffrey in the bottom two since they are my two favorites. Michael’s dress was a mess though. The judges hated Jeffrey’s dress but I thought it was pretty, a little off, but still pretty. I do dress a little off myself though so maybe I am not a good judge. Uli’s dress was just fantastic though and it looked amazing on Nazaree (whose name I am sure I just butchered but I am too lazy to look up the proper spelling). Poor Michael though, getting his model stolen this close to the end of the series is kind of bogus. Laura’s dress, well I have nothing to say about it. It was fine, predictable, boring, pretty, and fine. I can’t wait for the reunion episode next week. Keith is going to act crazy and it will be hilarious.

So the songs that came on yesterday were pretty easy. Only two are left. That means I get to add a bunch of fun new ones. I hope they are good.

1. You turn the screws you tear down the bridge. Flimsy as it is, it’s business like. You Turn the Screws, Cake. Identified by Shadowfalcon

2. This pig harassed the whole neighborhood. Well this pig worked at the station. This pig he killed my homeboy so the fucking pig went on a vacation.

3. She said I know what it’s like to be dead. I know what it is to be sad. And she’s making me feel like I’ve never been born. She Said, The Beatles. Identified by Brooke

4. You say that it’s over baby you say that it’s over now. Still you hang around so come on won’t you move over. Move Over, Janis Joplin Idenditied by Brooke

5. There was a time when I was so brokenhearted. Love wasn’t much of a friend of mine. Cryin', Aerosmith. Identified by Dad (Uh, since when can my Dad identify Aerosmith songs?)

They are actually pretty easy too. Have fun!

Oh Friend, those are way too easy. 3 - She Said, Beatles. 4 - Move Over - Janis Joplin. I feel like I should really know the first two also. Especially #2. It is annoying me that I don't.

I see that the trick is to get here right after you post your blog, in order to identify the easy songs before anyone else does. (But really I might have only gotten the Beatles song anyway...)

I'm a slow-getter-upper and love to take a good hour or so to ease into my day. It is definitely a nice thing to do every now and then. (And actually little kids are the best at getting up early!)

Uli's dress was amazing.

I am all about the lazy mornings; I always do a routine of breakfast & blogging before I shower and get ready for the day.

However, a few days ago I tried getting up, eating a quick breakfast, and hitting the gym at 7:30 a.m. It was actually a good time to go, and when I got back I felt like I still had a whole day to do other stuff. I may try that routine again (although I think my relaxing breakfast & blogging bit will not be so relaxing after a workout and I'm all jazzed up).

I have no idea about songs so sorry, I cannot hazard a guess. (Hubby's the audiophile; I'm a gossipmaven).

i love the morning!

but my body likes to stay up too late for me to fully enjoy the morning.

once i'm up, i'm up, and i like to busy myself, and prepare the house for my arrival after my day outside of house is done.

nothing like coming home to a house that's ready to receive you! that's what i say!

i'm still planning on saturday, but me and my cat are under the weather right now, so i don't know what is going to happen.
