I can guarantee the closest shave you'll ever know.

Recent happenings:

  • Last week I saw State of Play. It was decent. Not bad, not great...just in between. I saw The Soloist last night. It was pretty good. Today I saw Earth. I liked it! It was sad, happy, beautiful, ugly, and scary all rolled into one. I love that there are decent movies in theaters now so that I can fill my weekends with movie outings.
  • Yesterday I purchased a Bluetooth Headset. I got the Samsung WEP350. I have never owned or even tried one of these before. So far, with the limited talking on the phone that I've done since last night, it seems to work pretty well! I like the fact that I won't have to dig through my bag while driving to find my phone when it rings. Also like the fact that I will be alerted in my ear when my phone is ringing instead of missing calls because I can't hear the phone over my loud music.
  • We implemented a new system at work and it's supposed to catch anyone if they fall behind in their daily work (which can happen really easily). So far so good...we haven't had any major issues. Not sure what it will be like once we get really busy, but for now the workload is good and I've been steadily pushing things through everyday!
  • It is thunderstorming/raining today. Pretty crappy. Yesterday was sunny and 80-something degress outside. Sadly it seems the only nice days happen during the week when I'm stuck inside at work! :(
  • I am getting more and more anxious about getting a new phone. The one I have is ok...if you just want to talk on the phone. I badly want an iPhone, but I'm afraid of AT&T's service. I checked out the coverage map and it seems between here and my parent's house is not very good and it also seems there are a lot of holes in the United States (thinking ahead to traveling across the country for vacations). If you have AT&T Wireless could you please tell me what you think of the service? Also looked at the Google Android. Seemed pretty nice on the videos I watched. Not even sure what carrier has that phone. I currently use US Cellular. I'm very happy with the coverage area, but very unhappy with the money I am paying each month compared to what I get in return. I'm an internet addict and obviously having it with me wherever I go is like a dream come true. Also longing for a camera that is more decent than the one I have now. My contract with US Cellular is not up until early next year, so I guess I have awhile to think about it.
  • I have so much coming up in the next couple of months. Very busy! I need to document all that I am doing so I can look at it and marvel.
That's all for now, just needed to make a quick update since I haven't blogged in awhile! (I'm bad, I know). I do Twitter almost daily, so I guess maybe that makes up for it?

Order of the Phoenix

I flew through this book pretty fast! It was wonderfully, magically, superbly outstanding! I was very sad at the end--almost to the point of tears! I watched the movie this evening and thought that they changed A LOT, more-so than what has been changed in the last movies. Not saying the movie wasn't good, though, because I did enjoy it. I am watching all of the movies with Ian, who has not read the book before the movie (he is listening to the audiobooks after we watch the is that enjoyable?!!..), and he even admitted all of the jumping around and skipping over stuff was confusing. I just hope that this director doesn't mess up the next few movies! I am keeping faith though because so far I have not been thoroughly disappointed in any of them. GOSH these books are so good. I feel like a drug addict and Harry Potter is my drug...I just want to read more and more and more. I almost picked up Half Blood Prince tonight at 10:45 and started reading it...but my better judgment consumed me and now I am going to bed because otherwise I will be very tired at work tomorrow. Hopefully this week FLIES BY!

Saturday Morning

I'm lazing around in my pajamas eating banana bread, playing on facebook/twitter/dailybooth/blogger, and watching The Brady Bunch. Today looks like it might be a pretty good !

(edit: It was a good day. Spent majority of it in bed reading and playing on the internet. So lazy and so awesome.)

I've Got Friday On My Mind!

I am very ready for this week to be over! A little stressed at work and a little stressed at home means I need the weekend!

Our lease is up soon and we got a letter from the landlord saying that we have to renew it in 13 days or else. I don't want to live here for another YEAR. I'd like a few more months. We are going to call and see if we can negotiate. We want to stay in this town because it is quiet and laid back and it's only about a ten minute drive to Madison. It seems like it is popular to rent here though because units go up for rent one day and are already rented within the week! Blah, lots to think about but I guess we will see what comes of this phone call!

Last weekend I saw Monsters Vs. Aliens. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be (I did not like the whole story being wrapped around that silly girl's lame life and relationship....I wanted more monster and alien fights!) It was still a good movie, though. The 3D was cool and it had some great references.

I have to put a plug in for my new favorite website: Dailybooth. I haven't been using it as much as I would like, but I'm hoping to start using it a lot more soon. Instant photo uploads are great. Plus it is a cool online community and has neat threads. I'm following "Dailybooth" on Twitter so I get a lot of great updates on the most interesting threads. I love it!

I'm chugging away at Order of the Pheonix. I love the Harry Potter books. They are soooooo good. Why wasn't I into them earlier? It would have been neat to be part of the book release madness and such. I will just have to be a geek for the movies to make up for it!

It's late and I'm tired, so that is all I have! Goodnight~
