Confessions: you'll resepct me less after this blog

Confession1:  I haven't been writing.

Confession2: I haven't been editing.

Confession 3: I love Phineas and Ferb.  Seriously I watch at LEAST an hour of the show a day.  I bought a Perry the Platypus for myself-- not my two year old daughter-- and I hide him around my classroom so I can hear my students say, "Where's Perry?"

Confession 4:  I read 8 books in the month of September.  That's almost as much as I read all summer.
When I finish reading this blog I will continue reading Candor.

DEEP DARK CONFESSION:  Due to my lack of writing/editing or doing anything creative, my brain did something terribly humiliating...

It came up with an idea for Phineas and Ferb Fan Fiction.
It blended all the YA books I've been reading and Phineas and Ferb.

It flashes forward 6 years and now the boys are teenagers, Candace is home from college.  Phineas discovers that Isabella is a girl and really wants to touch her, but after Vajgeets accidental touching of a girl resulting in 16 hours of meeting with the guidance councilor and sexual harassment training, Phineas opts to keep his hands to himself.

Ferb is devastated because despite finding dark matter and doing the impossible time and time again, the pesky age of consent law is keeping him away from Vanessa.   Vanessa decides she doesn't want to wait another two years for Ferb (after all she might be a little bit evil but some laws can't be broken because it's just creepy) she opts to marry Carl the Intern.   Ferb is horrified.  Carl has been an intern for six years, how can anyone work somewhere for college credits for six years and not get hired or get a degree.  Beside Ferb is British and that's way cooler than being American.

There's a whole subplot with Doof and Perry teaming up to stop the wedding.
Comedy ensues.

***hangs my head in shame***

I'm SUCH A LOSER--- this was BY FAR my geekiest moment on this blog ever. 


In other news I'm going to the  Virgin Mobile Fest on Saturday.  Mostly because it's free and 10 minutes from my house.  There's really NO excuse not to go.  Jimmy Eat Work will be there.  That's all I care about.

Hubby and I went last year... we saw a fight between drunk preppy people---awesome.  We saw a couple breaking up in the middle of the concert but stuck it out because they needed to ride home together and he was REALLY REALLY into Weezer.

Maybe I'll post the exploits from last year on the blog next week and compare it with this years activities..


  1. Haha, I love your geeky moment! And frankly, this is not at all the worst I've seen (hing, I've done much much worse myself. There was a time when I knew everything - EVERYTHING - about Harry Potter...). There are worse things to be obsessed about than Phineas and Ferb - you'll have to do better than this to lose my respect ;)

    Good luck in getting back to your writing/editing!

  2. Does this mean the Phineas and Ferb fanfic is your next writing piece? LOL

  3. I LOVE P&F. It is hands down the best kids show. I sometimes watch it without my kids, and I have been loving all the new ones.
    I fully support your geeky exploits!

  4. Okay, so I definitely respect you less with the first Phineas and Ferb thing. I honest-to-God hate that show, but I guess I can't say anything since some of my favorite shows include Hannah Montana, Kim Possible, Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven, Phil of the Future, et cetera. Basically all the shows that I grew up with. Oh, and of course I can't forget The Suite Life of Zack and Cody - The Suite Life on Deck sucks, but the original show, before the spinoff, was always hilarious.

    But as for the Phineas and Ferb fanfiction thing... sometimes I do that even with shows I don't like. I've written one or two fanfics for iCarly (I hate that show even more than Phineas and Ferb) and a lot for Twilight, which is on my list of Most Hated Books of All Time. xD

  5. I had to Google Phineas and Ferb. My kids are way too old :)

    Writing like everything else in life goes in ebbs and flows. It'll happen :)
