time to groove.

Dancing may be the greatest way to pass the time ever. Like for real I will dance at any time in any place. If ever you feel like dancing, call me and we'll jam. There's nothing better than feeling the bass pump through the room and just straight grooving. So calming and so awesome.

I remember living in Louisiana, and when I was about six my mom and I were listening to music through the speakers in the living room and she said to me, "Sarah, you hear that low boom boom boom? That's the beat, that's what you dance to." I then started to listen carefully and follow along to what I thought were my mom's sweet moves. A few years later I realized that her moves are not so sweet, although I've heard that she won a dance competition or two in her day. (just kidding mom, you rock, but you still got nothing on me.) This is for you mom, thanks for teaching me about one of the greatest joys in life.

On that note, does not everyone want to be a part of a flash mob where some music comes on and everyone knows the same routine?? Except it would be way cooler if it wasn't planned and a ton of people just happen to know the same dance. Way cooler.

Alright, its dance party time at the comb. Anyone care to cut a rug?

I want to eat

Food is so delicious. I can't eat any right now because I'm sick, so I'm just looking at pictures of things I want. Stomach, lock it up so I can eat something. All I want right now are some delicious chicken nachos from Qdoba!! Gosh. Current things I want:

Qdoba chicken nachos

hush puppies with butter

mozzarella sticks

anything from mac and bob's

oh my gosh o'charley's rolls

egg rolls and DUCK SAUCE

fruit salad

Tell me these things don't make your mouth water. I'm going to continue looking at pictures of delicious foods and hoping the staring will transfer into me tasting those delicious foods.

Why do we have accents? Don't get me wrong, they are the best, but why did we ever start saying things differently from others? Watch this video for some examples. Creepy.

I was sitting with my friend and housemate Kristen today helping her to study for a phonetics test, and the thought came upon me. -Real quick though, I've found a new love and its phonetics. Shoutout to muh girl Kris for listening to the word "marmalade" non-stop and sparking my interest.

But fo' reals. Accents, love 'em, confused by 'em. There's probably some scholarly answer to this question, but I don't care. I want to hear a story from the first person who started saying "egg" like "ayg" or "oil" like "ole." I want to talk to those people. Did they just all of a sudden say "hey, I wanna be different. I'm a trend-setter." Were they the original indies (OI)? Or did it happen naturally? I wonder how many accents I've never heard. I wonder what kind of accent I have to people that don't speak english. Or what kind of spanish accent I have to native speakers.

I love how stereotypes have come along with accents. Well I don't love it, but it's interesting. What do people think of me when they first hear me speak? Do I have a thick accent to anyone? I think it would be pretty cool to have a very distinctive accent. It would be really sweet to study all the different accents. If thats even possible. I wonder if there are new accents forming even now. That's crazy. Does using different words count as an accent? For example, if two different people say "That's skippin'" or, "That's so ridiculous" but with the same sounds, do they have different accents? Again, could probably google this, but I'm gonna blog about it because I want you to know my deepest thoughts. I will continue to ponder; ponder with me? I know what you're thinking, Sarah, did you just use a semi colon and the word ponder in the sentence? Yeah! I'm a genius!

Music for you to ponder boogie to

It's a G thing

Here's a little music to get you grooving:

And yes, I am upset that Chris Brown is on here before Usher, but this song has been stuck in my head and I do love this video. 

Now, on to the serious stuff. Something I've realized today is that all words with more than one g sound ridiculous. Here are some examples along with picture definitions. 








and best of all:


That's FOUR g's!! Say those words aloud, and listen to how ridiculous you sound. Really, really ridiculous. You might start giggling, or feel the desire to gargle some mouthwash. If anyone can use all of these in a grammatically correct sentence you win a sense of pride.

'Ello there!

I know what you're thinking, Sarah, why the heck do you have a blog? Well I say to you, because I wanna! You're definitely also saying, Sarah, what the heck is that bible verse? I again say to you, because I wanna! Anyways, I'm not really sure where this is going to go, but I can tell you where it won't, and thats chipotle. Eh, maybe it will. We shall see. Read it, don't. Like it, don't. It's all up to you. Here's a great song for you to listen to in the mean time:
