The Secret is Out!

My classic rock kick continues. I was watching some Kansas (Carry on Wayward Son, Dust in the Wind) on Youtube and well I think I know who JK Rowling's muse was for Hagrid...

It's Robbie Steinhardt, violinist for Kansas!

It's even more obvious in the Carry on Wayward Son video and Dust in the Wind is, if only every music video could be so...stoic.

Journey - Don't Stop believing

I just wanted to take a small moment to express my love for Journey. My love for Journey has been within me for awhile now, but my love was brought to the front burner tonight for some wonderfully unexplainable reason. I immediately thought of sharing my love with the small number of people who read this blog, maybe someone needs the happiness of Journey today. And I accept the challenge to be the messenger.

The Rods and Cones of the present

So I've been a bit dormant on this blog. (But not my movie one, check it out.) So I've decided to do a little color game. I will list some colors and put what my first thoughts were with that color.

Yellow: The color of the shirt I wore when I went to Medieval times as a freshmen in high school with my high school band. I told this story yesterday as there is a chance, not a strong chance, but a chance I might be going to Medieval Times again.

Blue: My favorite color. Every semester I buy plain colored folders for each of my classes. I realized today that I always give my PR class the blue folder.

Red: Extremely soft zip-up sweatshirt with a fleece interior. I re-found this piece shortly before Christmas break. It's so warm and comfortable. It really helped me stay warm in my really cold house.

Black: I just learned about black rice. I'd never heard of it before. It looks like black beans. I'm intrigued to try some. Also I think I will be making a batch of Black Bean soup again soon.

Pink: Sarah's footsie pillow. Feet inside of a pillow. Okay, it's pretty much a visual thing. No matter how hard I try to describe it, it's nothing like just examining it.

White: Snow. Lots of it. Also my inhaler, also seeing a lot of it lately.

Green: The carpet.
