amy and i
the early keeners
our gangster poses
almost the whole group
yep...we came, we saw, we danced. sorry, no pictures of that. no cameras allowed in the audience. it actually wasn't too bad. i think i only messed up once. i have no idea what anyone else was doing but i looked good. haha. we still have a month until the "recital" to brush up our moves. ha. holla!

on tuesday morning when we got to school, most of the plants had sprouted however there were a few that hadn't. one student came up to me quite upset and told me that she thought her plant was dead. i told her not to worry and that all seeds don't grow at the same speed...then i crossed my fingers...haha. it sprouted today!

it was pretty funny as we were planting our marigolds, the kids were all very adament about naming their plants. and one kid's plant couldn't have the same name as another kid's. the names range from goldie to roberto luongo. i'm sure luongo would be flattered.
another thing that we did today was put a sponge in a pie plate and put birdseed on top. apparently, it should sprout. i can't imagine how that will happen but i guess that's why it's an experiment right?
ah...teachers. we look like we know what we're doing but sometimes we're just learning along with the kids.

> there was once a time that if i forgot to bring a DC with me to school for lunch, i might go out to the corner store to get one.
> there was once a time that when i had people over who also drank DC, i knew i'd better get a few 2 litres because i could drink one 2L myself.
> there was once a time that 9am wasn't too early.
and now these times have come to an end. don't get me wrong, it's still the only pop that i'll drink...maybe just not so frequently.

this is the first time the canucks have been in the playoffs since tim and i got married. we've never experienced the tension they might bring...
yesterday was day 22 of the cleanse. THANK GOODNESS IT'S OVER! so today i was pretty excited to go out for dinner or something as a reward. well, i get home at 6pm and say, "let's go out for dinner!" and tim says, "the game's on." oh. not to be defeated so easily, i say, "let's go to boston pizza where the game will be on!" he says, "no. i want to watch the game at home." okaaaaayy..."let's order pizza from boston pizza!" "i don't really like having pizza twice in a weekend. and then on friday when we have leftovers? we eat pizza all weekend." defeated. so if you know me at all, you'll know that I....started to cry, of course. "it's my celebration end to the cleanse! i should be able to get what i want to eat as a treat for doing so good. i wouldn't have picked pizza if we could have gone out to a restaurant but you don't want to go out so what am i supposed to get?" tim groans, "fine, order pizza." well, like i want to order it now. so i sit around moping for a few minutes before i order it but there's no fun in it anymore. (i know, there's too much emotion in food for me) the girl on the phone was such an idiot while i'm trying to explain that i want a half hawaiian and half 4-cheese pizza because they technically don't have 4-cheese on the menu anymore and then after being on hold while she figures out what i'm talking about, she comes back on to say that the stupid pizza's going to cost $30. it's not even a large! when i try to ask her if she's charging me the extra cheese toppings for a medium when the extra cheese is only on half the medium, she can't hear me because it's so loud in the background, i finally say, "forget it. cancel my order. i'm not paying $30 for a pizza." and hang up. haha. yes, i was now feeling ultra sorry for myself. i sat around moping some more until i was too hungry and i went to wendy's drive through only to get home and have the worst chicken burger, cold fries, and a watered down diet coke.
so what have i learned from this experience? umm...i don't like hockey? no...i don't like BP? no, that's not it...uhh...shoot. [insert dad-like lesson here] i guess i need a little more time to think about it.
*note: tim did apologize during this fiasco for only thinking about himself. but girls, we all know it was too late. haha. i love you, tim.*
**note: after re-reading my post, maybe my lesson learned is not to rest so much of your happiness in food. hmm...**

10 points to anyone who can tell me what movie the title quote is from.

this easter weekend, tim and i tried out northview community church on good friday so we went there again today for sunday morning. it brought back memories of ppac when we had pews and the ushers keep bringing more people to your row and you keep squishing closer and closer to the strangers around you. haha. the worship was great. we might try it again for the next little while. finding a church --harder than it sounds.
as for LOST...the second season is going to be done too soon. and then what?

so then he says, "if you can tell me who her mother is, i'll give you $5." so i guess in the dark, "debbie reynolds?" he laughs and says no. then he says, "she had that song." and i guess in the dark again, thinking of old people, "judy garland?" "HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?" he's shocked.
so i got $5...essentially for getting my haircut. ha.
