Ali's Big Break
I love this sparkly, bright red polish! Ali's Big Break is part of OPI's recent Burlesque collection. It dries fast and has a fabulous shiny candy apple red finish with just two coats.
So how is your Monday shaping up so far? After last week's amazing weather, this week is sure to be painful with a chance of snow and temperatures well-below last week's high 60's. But I am excited about the debates I am having my student hold this week in class. I'm hoping to get the mock court room at the university for us to use also. It should be fun.
Last night I was doing laundry and this Amazonian tarantula of a spider came running out of my laundry basket. Unfortunately, my "flight or fight" instinct kicked in and I flung my clothes everywhere and jumped onto the bed (I don't think I've ever jumped that great of a distance in my life - my middle school gym teacher would have been proud). By that time, the great beast of a spider had managed to hide itself somewhere in my room. I sat on the bed while J carefully picked through my clothes piece by piece, but no spider. Jump forward three hours. I walk into the bathroom to take a shower and I see two giant legs poking out from behind the toilet. So J manage to get a glass over it and a piece of cardboard under it and then we both just stood there debating how to get it out of the house for - I kid you not - an hour and a half. There was talk of a vacuum suction that would transport it into the Dyson and then we could carry it away, as well as the traditional "carry the cup outside" method (whenever we got close enough to doing that we both freaked out). This was a BIG spider - plus it kept lunging at us through the glass. I even called my parents on the off-chance that they felt like driving over to my house at 10:30 at night to carry a spider outside (my mom's advice was to tell J to "man up" and for me to "quit being such a prima donna." Thanks, mom). So finally J came up with the rather brilliant idea of hot gluing the cardboard to the glass cup, then cutting the cardboard off once the spider was outside. So we did just that: we hot glued the cardboard to the cup, safely carried the Amazon warrior up to the top of our neighborhood, and then cut the cardboard off - and it worked! That spider marched off through the grass and we took off running in the other direction. We are such huge wimps. Tremendous wimps. And I've spent today tip toeing around the house all day just in case his friends come jumping out.
Happy President's Day and I hope you had an adventure-filled weekend!
