This evening I went to the grocery store with my dear friend Jordie, so that we could get the supplies necessary to make pasta and fruit pizza for our Glee Premiere night dinner festivities.
The following conversation ensued:
Jordie: “I’m over the school thing. I’m just not gonna do it anymore.”
Beth: “Jordan, you’re going to school.”
Jordie: “I’m just going to drop out.”
Beth: “No, you’re not.”
Jordie: “I could move to Alaska. You don’t need an education in Alaska.”
Beth: “Yes, you still need an education. Even in Alaska.”
Jordie: “I don’t care, I’m done.”
Beth: “Jordan, you are staying in school. This is non-negotiable.”
I think it was the Alaska thing that threw me off… forget left field, It came out of outer space. But I’m a little appalled that I actually used “non-negotiable” in a sentence after referring to Jordie (twice!) by her full name.
I also may or may not have sternly asked her to stop dancing in the aisle ways shortly following that conversation.
Oy vey… I’m only 20 years old and I sound like a mom… what is the world coming to?!

I think someone needs a little lesson on the status quo of 4713.
That someone is my dog.
Gibbs has roughly 6 favorite things in the universe. Those things include:
- Ice cubes
- Smoked pig ears
- Anything he can demolish with his teeth and/or nails
- The bath tub (he likes to sit in it)
- Jeremiah (my roommate)
- Haley (his doggie girlfriend)
In this case, “every now and then” is defined as moments when he is being extraordinarily good, or extraordinarily annoying. In the second case he receives a pig ear as a last-ditch attempt to preoccupy him for at least 15 minutes outside of the bath tub.
Tonight, however, Gibbs seems to thing that he deserves three pig ears. Yep, three.
