7 Quick Takes Friday

Would you look at that, it’s snowing…again. If I wasn’t so excited about the COLTS impending SuperBowl win, I might be depressed.

Why is it that when it snows before Christmas it’s so magical, and when it snows after Christmas its so…pestilential?

I am going to be 26 in two weeks (18th). Last night Atticus and I were in the car, driving home from the grocery store. I was thinking about my birthday coming up, and dates in general. Then I said,

“1980 was 30 years ago.”

Atticus: What? Wait…oh yeah…*silence* I was born in 1982, which means I am almost 30. *silence*

Me: I am 4 years away from 30. I feel like that kid in Home Alone: AHHHHHHHH!

I just read this hi-larious article from The Onion about the Super Bowl. Oh Onion, you slay me.

Saints, Colts Hoping To Resolve Super Bowl Through Diplomacy

MIAMI—Team officials from the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts emerged from a tense, 12-hour negotiating session Thursday and told reporters that, while they had yet to reach a settlement that would prevent a massive on-field conflict, the AFC and NFC champions were committed to resolving the Super Bowl through diplomatic channels.

“Playing this Super Bowl is our last resort,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who was flanked by the coaches and quarterbacks for the opposing teams. “Yes, there are some difficult issues that need to be hashed out, such as who will be the game’s MVP, the number of total passing yards for each quarterback, and which team will be named Super Bowl champion, but I think we made progress today.”

“The Colts and the Saints are unwavering in their commitment to avoid any violence and wish to resolve the Super Bowl peacefully, without a single football being thrown,” Goodell added.

go here to read the rest…hehehe.

Just in case Peyton Manning ever gets tired of being an amazing quarterback, he could probably go into a career in comedy. WARNING: There is some bleeped swearing in the video.

Check out his hilarious “ad” on Hulu!

Spend time with your kids…so Peyton Manning doesn’t.

I had an interview this week for a part time position at the local library. I worked at my college library for three years and I really loved it. I should find out next week if I got it. I hope I did; the library is two blocks from home, so I can even walk there!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and …GO COLTS!

    I’ll take some of your snow. For some reason I have always liked snow better than rain.

    My husband turned 28 yesterday so I am right there with you on the 30-is-so-close feeling.

    Good luck with the library job. It sounds like the perfect fit!

    Oh, a library job would be great! I do hope you get it!

    And are you excited about the Superbowl? 😉

    GO COLTS!!!

    I sure hope you get the library job!

    I remember when all my girlfriends and I were decorating for prom. We were seventeen and freaking out because “In 13 years we’ll be 30!!!” Time flies when you’re having fun…. right? :-)

    Wow…I remember lamenting the impending doom of 30….haha…now it’s 40. I had a huge laugh when my husband turned 36 (I was 34) and I woke him on his birthday and said, “So, how does it feel to be on the downhill slope to 40?” Yeah…he was NOT amused!

    I’m a huge Peyton Manning fan…he cracks me up and just seems like a good all-around guy (here’s to hoping he doesn’t go “Tiger Woods” on us…)

    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    My husband just turned 38 this week. So old! (I’m 33.)

    I hope you get the library job. It sounds great!

    Ugh – I’m 30 (almost 31) and I still dread the thought of being 30. 28 was one of the hardest birthdays…

    I miss my 2s.

    Peyton Manning is hilarious. I’ve often said the same thing as you did – when he retires from football, he can be a comedian.

    I really don’t care who wins the Super Bowl tomorrow…so I’ll say I’ll be excited for you if the Colts win :).

    Prayers for the job at the Library.
