I finally investigated Twitter and got one for myself. Not sure how much I'll use it, but then again there is always the possibility of surprising myself.

Look me up on there, if you'd like: nurseliz07

One Semester English Major

I really like the title for this post. People that have known me well in more recent years remember my one semester as an English major. I enjoyed my time, but let's face reality....I couldn't cut it as an English major. I liked the subject, but it was hard for me to do all the work and face certain scrutiny. Not to mention that while I enjoy writing, I am not nearly as good as others at it and I don't want to put in the time necessary to improve. So I stay writing what I want at my pace all the while reading countless amounts of books and rolling my eyes at some of the atrocious grammar and spelling mistakes I see. (Some of my classmates at the college I am finishing up at either don't know what spell checker is or they just fail to use it.) My friend Angie is a self proclaimed grammar snob and I don't think I am too far behind her on that one.

Btw, silly question....what is the deal with Twitter? What is it exactly and should I get one?

Busy Life

In January I decided to volunteer to work with the family group (FRG) of my husband's boat. (Note: Submarines are boats & Surface ships are ships. This is an important distinction.) Well, it is now mid-April and I am busy every week with FRG stuff. I had planned to volunteer with the Retired Affairs office, but I don't know that I will have time any longer to do so. Anyway, that's pretty much my life.

Tv viewing:
American Idol- I can't say how happy I was that Megan finally got booted last week. She was annoying and in the words of Simon Cowell "terrible." This week Scott got the boot and to be quite honest I didn't care either way. He was good, but there are others who are much more versatile performers. However, I do see Scott possibly getting signed somewhere. His piano skills are very good.

Dancing With the Stars- Steve Wozniak & Holly Madison finally got voted off last week and thank goodness for that. They were awful dancers. I know everyone says "well, Holly didn't get the full amount of time and blah, blah, blah..." That woman was a bad dancer and I don't think a few extra weeks would have helped her. This week had the surprise of David Allen Grier getting the boot. He really didn't deserve that, because he was a decent dancer. I like Steve-O, but he just can't dance. However, this shows how fans voting make a big impact. Steve-O has the fan base so he stays.

Hell's Kitchen- Finally Carol got cut last week. I thought Gordon Ramsey was never going to let that woman go. This week should be interesting. I am looking forward to what happens tonight.

Aloha from the Islands....have a great evening!
