The Weekend

Phillis Jean Porter itsbetterthanbad

We’re riding into this weekend today and heading straight for the sunset. It has been such a busy busy week! Last night I went with a colleague to see our school’s production of Les Miserables, it was like a mini broadway show! We had worked on painting the floors in a cobblestone design, it looked pretty effective from our seats, so I was very pleased.

The Boy’s School particpated and the boy who was Jean Valjean brought tears to my eyes. When he sang, “Bring Him Home”, I was gobsmacked. It was truly emotional. He could have been a proffessional singer doing this. The emotion to his voice was awing. All the students did tremendously well, they have worked so hard and this was their fourth night of performing in a row and the energy was still incredible!

So that was a nice way to almost wrap up the week. This weekend, we have errands to run, cleaning to do, Christmas decorations to start getting out and we are celebrating Thanksgiving, so I have a pumpkin pie to make!

Date Night

Jennifer Michie Dessert

Last night Mr. Michie met me after work, I had been doing a little bit of Christmas shopping. It was dark and the Christmas lights were lit everywhere you looked, it was just magical!

We went to one of our favorite places: Wahaca! It was WONDERFUL!

For dessert we got churros and I had a shot of Mexican hot chocolate, while Mr. Michie got a coffee. It was the perfect ending to a perfect date!


Batman Gets A Kiss

Well, yesterday I wrote about Batgirl and after reading it, Mr. Michie decided to regale me with corny Batman quotes he had found. I thought I would share a few with you. You just gotta love it!

  • Holy Roman Empire, Batman!
  • No use, Joker! I knew you’d employ your sneezing powder, so I took an Anti-Allergy Pill! Instead of a sneeze, I’ve caught you, cold! – Batman
  • It’s Alfred’s emergency belt-buckle Bat-call signal! He’s in trouble! – Batman
  • Holy strawberries Batman! We’re in a jam! – Robin
  • Holy Long John Silver, Batman! – Robin
  • You she-devil! Have you short-circuited Batman’s brain? – Robin
  • Holy Kleenex Batman, it was right under our noses and we blew it! – Robin

P.S. My dad sat next to Adam West on a plane one time, he said that he was just the nicest gentleman. I think I would have passed out if I had sat next to him, what a TV legend!

Bat Girl

Bat Girl

Well all the craziness from last week has moved into this week. I feel like I just can’t quite get caught up. I’m runnin’ on fumes.

So, I am going to be summoning all of my Bat Girl strength to get through the rest of the week. It’s Wednesday, so we’re almost there!

Now, if only I could get my hair to look as nice as that with my Bat Girl mask on! You gotta love a good flip “do”!

We Made It!

We made it! Friday has arrived! This weekend will be a very well deserved break after such a busy week! This is what I plan to do tomorrow – sleep in!Holly Golightly

Mr. Michie is sick, so I am going to make a big batch of chicken soup, fresh bread and there are Christmas movies on TV tomorrow afternoon. So, I think I am pretty well set for a day of happiness!
