I fell in love again all things go, all things go*

* Chicago by Sufjan Stevens


Season Finale of Grey's Anatomy? So annoying. Why am I watching this show. Izzy continues to annoy me and Meridith? Why does she keep rephrasing what other people say?

The cicadas are coming! The cicadas are coming! There are many species of cicadas but we here in Chicago are getting ready for the invasion of the Brood XIII variety. I remember the last time the cicadas invaded this area. I went to Ravinia with some friends to lay out on the grass for a picnic. Harry Connick Jr had just come out with a new album and was headlining a jazz showcase. We get to the grassy area and it's covered in cicadas. We literally had to sweep them away to lay the blanket out. No wonder the tickets were so cheap. We talked about the next invasion of cicadas and how we would be *gasp* in our 30's!

I'm obsessed with airline miles. Reasonable Mint knows that if she's prudent she'll have enough miles in October to exchange for 2 round trip tickets to India. Not-so-reasonable (NSR) Mint wants to blow it all for 4 tickets to Tahiti and a ocean-view bungalow. *sigh* I already know who'll win.

D and I had our annual no-holds barred argument this past weekend. I personally believe arguments like this are needed every so often in a marriage. Our arguments are always along the same theme; Him: "I'm not a mind reader" Me: "I don't feel appreciated". It sounds lame now but man, did we let some emotions fly on Saturday. Unfortunately we wasted our date night on the fighting and by the time we reached a compromise it was just about time to pick up the kids from my parent's house.

Saw Shrek the Third this weekend. It was cute. Definitely better than most of the kid's crap out there.

I second what Desi Witch says!! Go to Tahiti.

And yes - no-holds-barred arguments are a MUST for a relationship. And fun too!

Grey's Anatomy's okay, and yes, Izzy is annoying! That's why I *heart* Dr.House. Sighhhh....

Cicadas come once in how many years? Do they really have a cycle?

I vote for NSR Mint!
You deserve that lovely holiday.

CD exchange sounds good! Yippee Yai Yay! When when?

The boy is STILL listening to El Matador's Dos Fabulosos Cadillacs? Hahahaha! It's been 2 years! :D That song is still in my Running list on my iPod by the way.

I'm going through a Corrine Bailey Rae phase right now ;)
