Movies Shmoozies

I have been such a slacker recently with watching new movies. Here's a list of some that I really want to see:

I don't know if this was ever in the theaters, but Colin Firth and that guy from P.S. I Love You is in it, so, ok, those are really the only reasons I wanted to see it.

I heard this wasn't very good, but I don't know if I can trust the source. I still want to see it. It looks cool ok? Which reminds me, I also wanted to see that Jumper movie.

Ok, now I know what you're thinking...well ok I really don't. Because on the one hand, Twilight is on DVD and I still haven't seen it; but on the other hand, I still want to see it. Just to see it. Bring on the cheese. I don't care if it's bad, I can take it.

Why wouldn't I want to see this movie? It looks fantastic. the end.

Again, why wouldn't I want to see this? I want to see it!

So, there you go. I'm guessing redbox is going to be getting a lot of my service in the next bit since I don't really have anyone to go to the movies with. Don't worry, I love chillin' at home in my pjs watching a movie.

Song-o-the-Week: Someone Like You by SafetySuit. Um, I'm majorly putting off important homework, so I don't have much to say. Other than...I think song is about trying to be good enough for someone you want to be with and also wondering if they are good enough for you - if they will be strong enough to hold you up through everything you have to go through.

Into the Depths

Ok, so I was just in a work meeting with all these people. We only have the meeting every other Friday, but we always have pizza and drinks and such - because my work is awesome. Today someone brought cookies - which were delicious by the way. They had chocolate chips AND little M&Ms and they were chewy and just, mmm. Anyway, so here is a play by play of how things went down...

-finish eating pizza, being very careful to take small bites and not look like a complete pig.
(note 1: for some reason I hate eating when I know that people could be looking at me. I just think I look weird when I eat - especially when it's pizza - so I just get awkward and probably draw even more attention to myself. anyway, just a little fact about me haha).

-wipe my face with napkin.

-quickly jet out of the room to get my water bottle because I'm parched.

-sit back down, remember that I have half a cookie left. yay for me.

-break a piece of cookie off (note 2: because of said eating issues, I tend to break things into pieces so I can just shove the piece in my mouth instead of biting into it and having more problems and maybe even get food in my teeth...end note).

-take small piece and put it in my mouth

-while the piece is going into my mouth (slow motion starts about now), whoops I think a chocolate chip fell. Oh wait, I think I felt it hit my chest...below where my shirt starts. I certainly hope it didn't go down my shirt haha, that would be funny...not.

-frantically searching for chip around my seat and lap...while keeping a collected cool and jotting down a few more notes so no one thinks I'm up to something.

-no luck finding chocolate chip anywhere around me. Face frightful conclusion that it has traveled down my shirt into unknown territory.

-look around me to see if anyone saw what just one looks alarmed

-realize that the meeting is only half way over and I've already left once so I can't just leave again without being extremely impolite.

-accept the fact that I'm going to have to sit here while a small piece of chocolate melts inside my shirt.

So, there you have it. haha. I can only just imagine, if in fact anyone did see what happened, what that person must have been thinking. If I had seen such a thing I would have been laughing for sure.

Blinkity Blink

Ok so I finished this book a while ago, but I forgot to post about it.

I loved this book. It was so interesting. I think everyone should read it. It's definitely an eye opener.

Oh, and in case you don't know what it's's about how we think, make split-second judgements, how we read people, how and why we make decisions.

Anyway, it's fascinating.

Song-of-the-Week: Unhappy by Thriving Ivory. First of all, I'm liking this band more and more. Secondly, I've become slightly obsessed with the site because I love lyrics and thinking about the meaning of songs and such. Anyway, I think this is a really cool song.

I often think that people should be talking in questions. It just makes life so much more interesting....and hilarious.

Just a thought?

Just a forewarning that this post isn't going to be very upbeat. I am just not having a good week. And I predict that the weekend is going be about the same.

The one good thing - ok there's two. The first is that my laptop is finally usable as of yesterday. I really missed it but it was actually pretty nice not having it because I used to be on it like all the time. So I'm going to try to only use it when necessary, because life is just better when you don't rely on technology as I so often do.

The second thing is that I have been staying the week at Deb's apartment, which has probably been the only thing keeping me from utter despair - ok maybe that's a little strong, I'm not that sad, but it sounds more dramatic, so I'm keeping it. I think the "not living with friends" thing is really starting to get to me. I miss my friends so so so very much. Don't get me wrong, I love my roommates to death, but they're just not the same as my besties.

Ok I'm adding number three to good things. I think this is the first week since I started working at BYU that I will have worked a full 20 hours. So, good for me.

I'm sure you don't want to know all the bad things...but I'll go over a few very briefly:

-I totally failed my Italian Oral Exam basically because of time.
-I probably failed my Italian quiz today even though I studied
-I might not get my job back if I go to Larke's for the summer, which just breaks my heart.
-To save you all from an extremely long explanation, I am extremely - and I mean extremely - confused concerning boys, which also is breaking my heart.
-Because I haven't had my laptop I have fallen very behind in research for all my papers.

Ok, I'm adding a fourth good thing just so I can think of something happy. Last night at Deb's we all slept in the living room and watched Alladin and Beaty and the Beast, two of my favorite Disney movies. It was great.

I just want to know when things are going to start getting better. Last week was so good, but it took a complete drop this week. And I really don't want next week to be the same.

Oh I almost forgot about the song of the week. I guess I'll choose Already Gone by Kelly Clarkson. It's off her new album which came out this week. I haven't listened to all of it, but this song sounds good.

Friday is My day....I mean Nikki's day

Do you ever feel like you've been waiting so long for something to happen and then once the time comes you're like, oh, well, i've been waiting too long for this for it to be as great as it should be? .....just a something to think about haha.

Here are some thoughts in my head this early morning:

-I'm so tired. Like, collapse on my bed tired. Which is weird because it's not like I've been sleep deprived. But boy howdy do I want to go home and sleep right now. Too bad I'm responsible sometimes.

-This is definitely going to be the Italian quiz that get's dropped because I so have not sufficiently studied for it. And in one hour when I'm taking it, I will be reaffirmed of this fact. Or maybe by some strike of luck I'll do good on it. Hey, it's happened before...several times.

-Oh and the biggest woe of all is that my right earphone isn't working on my iPod. I'm pretty much devistated. It's just silent. So i only get sound from the left side, which just isn't up to par. And I just got them for Christmas. But i might have to buy new ones unless somehow I can fix them, and i have no idea how to go about that.

-Going to officially have a place to live in the fall. I haven't actually seen it though, so Debbie better be telling the truth that I'll like it or else!.....or else nothing will change and I'll still live there because, well, I just love Debbie too much not to.

-I really hope that I don't get stuck in rush hour traffic tonight. That would just ruin everything.

-it's Nikki's birthday!!!! woot woot woot. I'm so excited to see her tonight. Although this also marks the day that I am officially the youngest. And I have to wait 6 more months before I can join the pack again.

Song-o-the-week: hmm, this is a tough one this week. a wild card, if you will. How about Just Dance by Lady Gaga. When I hear this song I must dance. Something takes over and, friends, I just lose control. the end.
