“Like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your mind”

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 11:10 pm

I just saw Simon & Garfunkel in concert. It was great. They played all the songs I love… America, Sounds of Silence, The Boxer… Mrs. Robinson sounded fabulous live. And it seems that the tender bridge-over-troubled-water song is still my mother’s favorite song of all time.

Ease my mind,
What’s your favorite song of all time?

Feelin’ Groovy,
Lisa

“when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullabye”

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 4:32 pm

“Somewhere out there
Someone’s singing a prayer
That we’ll find one another
Somwhere out there
Out where dreams come true.”

So my blog has been redesigned. I am liking the new look so far. I hope you like it too! Here goes with the posting!

Le Fromage & El Queso

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 6:58 pm

Apparantly I do not like ricotta cheese. It kinda ruins perfectly good lasagna, don’t you think?

So anyway, I am back from a pathetic hiatus from the blog world. The hiatus being due to my vacation in Puerto Rico, which I probably should talk about, my busy schedule at work, my lack of computer access, and my overarching issue of having nothing terribly interesting to talk about.

So Puerto Rico. It was lovely. I would like to return there someday, and since I have all sorts of family there, I would certainly have a place to stay. Perhaps most importantly, I discovered that my skills in the Spanish language are pathetic, and that I spent so many hours in classes and I can’t remember much of what I learned. People talk so quickly there… there is no way I could comprender what they were saying. Luckily, almost everyone spoke English. So, this sort of deters me from studying other foreign languages, knowing that proficiency is such a long way off. I’ll just buy an English to Italian dictionary and a phrase book for whenever I get to go back to Italy. Oh, I’m horrible!

The best thing about Puerto Rico was the time spent with family, and what a strange family it is! Also, you really can’t beat the walks on the beach every morning, the beautiful sunny sky, and the almost perfect weather. I could spend a lot more time in Puerto Rico.

Well, it’s almost time to go home and eat some queso (that happens to be inside a leftover calzone), but I’ll leave you with a real treat… some quotes from the Puerto Rico trip… warning: they are mildly racy, but I laughed a lot:

-In reference to the small breast size (and large rib cage size) among family members my aunt said: “It’s ok. What we lack in breasts, we make up for in ribcage.”

-In reference to ‘sex on the beach,’ my cousin said: “It’s like doing it with a broom. You’d get splinters in your hoo-hoo!”

Yikes!

Can’t talk, gotta run!

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 6:23 pm

The problem with going on vacation is that you get behind in your work!!! The good thing is, I’m finally catching up after 4 days!

Well, I’m off to the diving trials in St. Peters!!!!

What could be worse than losing Ricky’s hat?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 7:29 pm

This is the thought that popped into my head today as I considered several various ‘worst-case scenerios.’ However, if losing Ricky’s hat is the most stressful, nervewracking thing I’ve ever had to go through, I must be a lucky person… or have something coming to me.

Stress sucks. It should be outlawed.

C’est la vie. Welcome back from vacation, Lisa.
