Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered with failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in that grave twilight that knows no victory or defeat.

My version of Twitter-ing. I think.
CRAVING.... Red Robin's Stake Fries with ranch. Man alive, that sounds so good right now... I could also go for a chocolate milk shake. Yes please.
And yes I did watch Best of Show last night. GO SADIE! Haha, I was putting in a movie and that was on and I have no idea how I got sucked in, but I did, for 20 whole min. I kept laughing to myself since that is def not my thing! I'm a goldfish fan and that's about it.
30 going on 5. Lately all I want to eat is Mac & Cheese, cereal and drink Hi-C, or chocolate milk. When Court was in town we went to BJ's and I was so excited when I found that they had gourmet Mac & Cheese on the menu. And when I went to see Avatar guess what I had in my purse... you guessed it: a Hi-C juice box.
Have you seen the moon!?! It is gorgeous, gigantic and full right now. I love it. Speaking of — need to plan a full moon extravaganza...
Yes I did just have DIPPIN' DOTS for lunch. Don't be jealous!
