The first week of school is over. In the first we I:
1) Was assigned to make a music video for my film class. My subject will be my friend Blake working out in the gym to the song "Holla back girl" by Gwen Stefani. I have to do a lot of fancy editing to make it look real so this should be interesting.
2) Could not find my way into the building I needed to get into to take my communications 1 class and ended up walking to 4 different entrences all marked with caution tape then finally giving up and asking a construction worker who managed to call me sweety 6 times before he gave me directions then tried to charge me $5 dollars for his services...I told him that my shoes getting dirty was enough payment.
3) Watched Casablanca in my movie appreciation class. Good movie...classic.
4)Went to the gym after my night class got out around 8pm and there was not ONE machine open, it was so packed. So I cried and stormed out to my car, followed by going to jake's to eat 3 peices of pizza and play wii while cursing the fat people with stupid new years resolutions that mess up my workout plan. I can't wait until they all give up.
5) Was saluted by a passing bicyclist while driving home.
6) Orderded and received the 3rd book in the Twilight saga and received two copies with some other person's name on it. Rather than return the misplaced quantity to Barnes and Noble, I am going to start mailing pictures to this man whose address is on the mailing slip. Pictures of me reading BOTH copies of his book. I really dont know what I am going to do, but I am going to become pen pals with...Jonathan G. of Atlanta. ;)

That is all I will say because the rest of what happened this weekend is so truly invovled and awfully awful and dramatic to the core that it might melt you faces. And I am only being dramatic...but serious. woe.

Welcome to Con Air

When I was little I was really into Country Music Television. So naturally all the classic 90's songs are in my heart. Lately I have had Trisha Yearwood's "How do I live" stuck in my head. When I think of that song I think of the music video. When I think of the music video I think of how it was nothing but shots of trisha on an airfeild and clips from the movie Con Air. So I decided to watch Con Air after work tonight. I hopped over to the library which was open late and rented Con Air on nothing other than VHS. Haydee, my favorite library assistant due to her lack of facial expressions and voice tone inflection, checked me out with a judgemental-ness about her...just kidding, she was as serious as always. Side note: I stopped noticing that Haydee dosn't where her nametag anymore, so whenever I see her... naturally I think to myself, "hello, Haydee". But then I noticed her lack of nametag and thought to myself, "what if I said hello to her out loud? She would find it really odd that a strange red-head with an affinity for corny 90's flicks knows her name." But I digress.
Upon watching the movie I was confused and enchanted by it's serious dramatic flair interspersed with appearances by Dave Chappelle and a character whose name I would later find out to be "Sally can't dance".

Here are a couple of memorable quotes courtesy of IMDB.

Cameron Poe:"Hey! My mama lives in a trailer!"
Bedlam: "Make a move and the bunny gets it."
Cameron Poe: Put... the bunny... back... in the box.
Cameron Poe:[after killing Bedlam in self-defense, looking disappointed at Bedlam's corpse] Why couldn't you put the bunny back in the box?
Masterpeice? I think so...

ps: "The Bunny" in question...right here. I am not joking.

my dance dance revolution resolution

Today is new years day. My last full day in the lone star state. And probably the last time I will come here for a while seeing as how next time I visit leah and steve it will probably be in arkansas. but i will be happy to go back to work, not so happy to go back to school. It has been so nice to visit here and spend time with the kids and everyone. Currently Leah and Steve are on a day date, lunch and an afternoon movie. Gabby is down for a nap and I just made steven a delicious lunch of brontasoarus-shaped cheese sandwich particles, teddy grams, chocolate kisses and some soda. Now we are watching Cinderella. He really finds this movie hilarious and is enjoying his lunch. He actually ate every single bit! I will fatten this little boy up, yet! He almost made it to new years last night, falling asleep about 45 minutes too soon. Hopefully he takes a little nap on the couch today during our movie. Here are some pics of the kiddies. More later.
