Watching: ‘Life’s for Sharing’ (Thanks Steven!)

Thinking: Que sera, sera….

How to Annoy Me: Inform me that the car wash won’t eat me but it might eat my car. SO NOT HELPFUL, JENN! 😉

Watching: ‘JD and Turk’s Marching Band’ (I’ve been on a Scrubs kick recently and cracked up at this scene.)

Thinking: You know we’re in trouble when our hip hop instructor looks at me and goes “Oh, this is not going to work.” 😀 (Sorry Rashid! We are *white*!)
