life & other news

Since my last post:

  • I have finished all 5 seasons of Weeds, and am not so patiently waiting for season 6.
  • Aaron came home!! He is officially an Air Assault graduate.
  • My job is so lame I feel like I lose millions of brain cells every time I have to go in. It also hurts my feet. & I don't want to hear 'a job, is a job & this is the recession......' b.s.
  • Saw Bruno for the second time. It is funny. WATCH IT!
  • I have started reading the gossip girl books. So far, so good!
  • Saw Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and stayed thoroughly confused the entire time. I love Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, and Tobey Maguire, but I feel like the only way to get through this movie and acutally like it, is to be on drugs, which I'm not willing to do. Sorry guys.
  • And, I got this award from Sara! So sweet.
What do you do when you're bored?
Watch T.V. or a movie, read a book, paint, dork around online.

Are you an Autumn or a Spring?
Definitely Spring. It's like the light at the end of the tunnel that is Winter.

Quick! You're stuck at an airport for hours, and the only options are crossword puzzles, or an old novel nobody's ever heard of. Which do you pick?
Crossword puzzle hands down.

Jane Austen or Emily Bronte?
Emily Bronte. I had to do a report on her when I was in the 6th grade, so I had to read a lot of her poems/biography/etc.

Do you feel prepared for the five other questions coming your way?
I kind of feel like I'm on myspace again, but sure...let's do this.

Who’s your hero?

Favourite word?
food :)

Are you one of those “checklist” people, or are you a “wing it and hope everything goes well” sort of person?
I am a list maker to the n'th degree. I HAVE to HAVE my lists.

What phrase has stuck with you in your life?
too legit to quit? HA

If you were to choose between coffee and tea . . . which would you go with?
Tea, but only if it was ice cold and sweet.

Who do I think deserves this award?
How about....

*Are there not that many episodes of Weeds or have you just been on an exhausting marathon?

*How you feel about the "job/recession" thing is how I feel about the "real world" thing

*I'm glad we picked Bruno over The Princess and the Frog haha. Probably a good choice.

*I have to admit, I had the same reaction to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. I wanted to like it because I feel it's one of those "classic" movies, but I just couldn't get into it. Like you said, maybe if I was stoned I would "get it"

I've read a few of the Gossip Girl books and loved them! Perfect for Summer poolside reading!

Congrats on the award! Sorry to hear about you losing brain cells but glad you got through all the seasons of Weeds. I cant wait for the new season, I'm totally anxious.

And, just for the record you do HAVE to high to 'get' that movie, lol.

Smart Ass Sara said...

Congrats for Aaron!

RIP Jamie's brain cells. :(

I haven't seen Bruno- it's on my to-see list. But I will say I've seen The Princess and the Frog easily 372 times since it came out because Olivia loves it...and it's not bad. I am not ashamed to say I cried when Ray died. Even though Olivia tells me everytime it's just a movie and he WAS a bug and all. Whatevs. Never cool when a 4 year old calls you out.

I only made it through 38 minutes of Fear and Loathing. I decided that if I was going to watch I had to decide if I pick the crack house or just the pot house down the road. Ugh. Then I'd have to find cash..and yah. Way more trouble than it'd be worth. ;)

I have never watched Weeds, but I have heard so many great things about it.

I am a HUGE list maker as well!

Sweet! Thanks for the award. Fear and Loathing, I'm right there with you. Totally lost and the nasty bathtub scene made me want to puke. I have yet to see Bruno, and it's not really on my list of to-see! Can't wait for Weeds though!

I'll have to look into the gossip girl books. I was thinking of starting the true blood books though.
