– I’m winding down at work here, after speaking in front of a classroom full of students. I wasn’t bad, but I know that I used “ums” and “uhs” a little too much. Funny, since I was talking to them about presenting themselves professionally during a job interview. I told them not to use too many “ums” and “uhs” and said, “Like I’m doing right now.” I was going for a bit of laughter, but didn’t hear any, so I quickly moved on to the next topic. Then I asked, “Any questions?” This time the silence was welcoming, and I waited a second and then started saying my “good-byes” but said I’d be in my office if any questions do pop up. This was a good group, though. Pretty attentive and when I thanked them for their time I heard one in the back say, “Thank you!” and a few people clapped. I’m taking that as a good thing. Hehe.
– Tomorrow is Friday and I only have to work till noon because I work a bit on Saturday. I have been invited to a birthday party my friend is having for her daughters, and we get to dress up in our Halloween costumes. And I do finally have everything I need for mine, so I will be attending the party in my costume.
– Last Saturday I was able to pick up the other movie I ordered through Amazon. I ordered the unedited version of Wes Craven’s movie “Cursed”, and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of that movie. Then last night I was in the mood to watch my copy of “Ghost Rider”, and enjoyed that one too. Have you seen these movies or at least one of them? What did you think?
“That’s all there is. There ain’t no more.” Do you know that song? Ksra and I sang it together once, and I think I posted it on here a few years ago. I learned the song when I was in grade school and in the Girl Scouts.
Here are the lyrics you were all dying to know. Don’t deny it:
“The other day I met a bear, out in the woods oh way out there.
***(there’s usually someone singing along as an echo each time)***
He looked at me, I looked at him. He sized up me, I sized up him.
He said to me, ‘Why don’t you run? I see you ain’t got any gun.’
And so I ran away from there, but right behind me was that bear.
And then I see ahead of me a great big tree, oh glory me.
The lowest branch was 10 feet high. I had to jump and trust my luck.
And so I jumped into the air, but I missed that branch oh way up there.
Now don’t you fret and don’t you frown. Cuz I caught that branch on the way back down.
That’s all there is, there ain’t no more. Unless I meet that bear once more.”
I had a friend at the time who was from Japan, and she sang that song in Japanese for our class. Good times.
