Field Trip

My friend Andrea is moving to Georgia in a few months and as a result has created a "bucket list" of things to see while she is in the great state of Arizona. One of these things was to go to Jerome AZ. It is about a 2 hour drive north of Phoenix.

So Andrea, Kirsten and I decided to go to Jerome on Monday January 21 (MLK day). On our way we drove past the Bad Ass BBQ. It just so happens that going to the Bad Ass BBQ was something that Kirsten wanted to check off of her something-I-need-to-do-before-I-die list. So, we were able to kill two birds with one stone.

I really wanted to buy something from the Bad Ass Boutique. But, the Bad Ass was closed. Imagine this conversation:
Someone: That is the cutest shirt ever. Where did you get it?
Me: Just at some Bad Ass Boutique.
Someone: [Gasp]

We also went to Tuzigoot.... ruins from the Southern Sinagua Civilization. Picture below.

Below are pictures taken in Jerome. It's a small mining community that has turned "artsy".

News Flash

It's been a while since the last post. Here are some news updates that may or may not interest you....

In my world:
Chinese class canceled for 7 hour class

I had to drop my Chinese class! :( SO SAD! I had a conflict with my schedule. In order to renew my teaching certificate I have to take a class by August (Classroom Management and Lab Safety). The only class I could find between now and August was on Thursday nights from (are you ready for this?!?) 2:30 pm until 9:30 pm. FOR 6 weeks!! 7 hours each Thursday. Count them: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven HOURS! I may have to stab my eye balls out. Who can sit for that long? As you can tell I am sad that I had to drop my class but I am extremely sad that I had to drop it for a seven hour classroom management class.

In the world:
Twins Marry

I don't know if you have heard about this but, in a nutshell....

In Britain, twins separated at birth marry each other. They didn't know that the were siblings until after the marriage. They said that they, "met later in life and felt an inevitable attraction". Well, duh! First that makes me puke. Then after the puking, it makes me feel kinda sad for them. They think that they found their soul mate only to find out it's their brother/sister. It kinda reminds me of Star Wars (Princess Leia and Luke). For the full story click here
