Finished "The Host"


And I have to say that I liked it a LOT better than the Twilight series.

Musicals grow on you

Especially when they are about murderous barbers and people baked in pies.

Dreams are easily influenced...


Seth's snores managed to disturb my dream and thoroughly confuse me until I abruptly woke up.

Money beacon


I'm like George Costanza, where I can spot a dime from across the street with my glasses off. Well...not really that good, but I do have a tendency to pick loose change off the ground wherever I go. Sometimes it pays off, like when I found a $20 bill in junior high, to tonight, when I found two dollar bills on the floor at work. I also found a quarter and some pennies, but who's counting, hehe.

GPS issues


Our gps unit has really outdated maps and we tend to find ourselves lost quite a bit. Now, our gps unit didn't exactly say that exact quote today, but it did say this after repeatedly trying to get us to turn around: "Make a u-turn at first available location". That seemed as good as an "I'm lost" statement.

Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull


Harrison Ford did a great job and I'm glad they brought Karen Allen back...but the plot was even more far-fetched and the writing not nearly as fun as the previous films. Plus the use of CGI was unnecessary, and the monkey scene was just horrible.

It was a fun enough movie, but nowhere near as good as the previous three.

Heelys


Ever since I learned that Heelys came in adult shoe sizes, I had to get myself a pair. It's really difficult to get into the hang of skating on your heels. I am getting better, but am no where near as good as all the little kids I see gliding around effortlessly.

The Host


I haven't actually started reading it yet since I am in the process of finishing a really good book. But it is next in line. On another note, we purchased a new house! Here's hoping we can sell the old one.

Mosquitos suck


I was outside for no more than 10 minutes and got 11 mosquito bites. It wouldn't be such a big deal except that I am quite allergic and I now look like I have some sort of alien pox all over my legs.

Closer to a new home


Made an offer on a new home, our fingers are crossed.

Collection complete


We've been watching episodes nonstop since purchasing the box set.

Mystery books


I've been reading a lot of culinary mystery books - call it a guilty pleasure. They take about 4 hours to read, all have the same plot, and they come with recipes.

Forgetful


I had planned to make chicken piccata all week, and then I went and used up all the lemons in the house. So I made a quick stir-fry instead with the meat, yum. On another note, I have completely filled one large sketch book with strips and need to begin a new one. It's been nearly a year since I began this blog, wow!

More restless nights

Disturbed sleep


Eventually I managed to fall asleep, but not for long.

Disappointment


There were only eight stalls. Four of which sold non-produce items like bread and tamales. And the rest of the stalls sold potatoes, onions, and squash with the occasional green vegetable. Slim pickins is all I can say.

Dilemmas
