Get Off My Lawn
Damn Kids

Update on my A/V situation (I know you've all been waiting with bated breath for an update on this):

I purchased the 4-way AV selector switch from Radio Shack. It's working swell. So now I can have all my peripherals plugged in to my TV. Awesome. Just as I finally get a dtv converter box (omg! time's running out!), the government decides to roll back the switchover time from February to June. Jeesh. I guess this is good for me though, as I can use the converter box when I'm at home watching TV and get better reception, but as long as the "normal" antenna stuff is still working, I can record stuff on a timer by shutting off the converter box. Yeah. Anyway...

Joleen and Sunny have officially moved out of Australia and are now backpacking around New Zealand. For 6 weeks. Then on to southeast Asia.

My neighbors are being INCREDIBLY loud. As in, the movie they're watching is turned up to the max. Which is why I'm blogging, since I was having an impossible time concentrating on thinking about readings and other stuff I should be doing. Yes Sarah, I KNOW I need to talk to my landlord about it. Tonight was the clincher. Ugh.

I'm drinking hot chocolate.

I think the apartment building a block from me had a big fire tonight. Not sure, though.

Has anyone other than Sarah seen Milk? If so, what did you think of it? Should I make a point to go see it, even though I'd have to be pathetic and see it alone? How about The Mysterious Case of Benjamin Button? Why am I kind of annoyed with Brad Pitt these days? Mystery.

Okay, back to my readings...

What's pathetic about seeing them alone? I do it all the time. I guess I am pathetic though. :(

I don't want to see B. Button at all. I'm off love stories at the mo. I also don't really want to see Milk. I guess that doesn't help you at all.

I don't really think it's pathetic. I've seem movies alone, too. I was just taking the "I have to do things alone" thing to the extreme.

Sure, nice cover up! ;) Kidding. I'm definitely pathetic to the extreme. But for other reasons than seeing movies alone.

than JUST seeing movies alone.

Remember when S used to have a goal as eating in a sit down restaurant alone?

There's a song that's on the radio right now that says "I'm sorry I misleaded you". It REALLY bothers me.

Haha... I like the title of this post.

Randomly (well, not entirely because your mention of New Zealand made me think of it): have you watched The Flight of the Conchords?

I haven't seen Milk or Benjamin Button. I wouldn't mind seeing Milk, though. I heard B. Button wasn't so good from some people.

I don't think it's pathetic to see movies alone. I actually had it as one of my goals to do that sometime. I think it shows a bit of independence. I also had it as a goal to eat in a sit-down restaurant alone, though, too...I did that on my 24th birthday and totally depressed myself. Yeah, it felt pathetic. Maybe that was the combo birthday/alone thing, though...

Birthday meal alone...Candy, you're a real downer. I shall go to a movie and dinner date with myself next month...maybe on my birthday!

That last part was just a slick way of me telling you all that my birthday is less than one month away!!!

Did you just use the word "slick?" OK, grandma...

"Wow, those slacks are real slick! Now I'm going to go sit on the davenport for a spell."

Is spell supposed to mean nap? Never heard that one before!

No, a spell is a period of time.

From dictionary.com:

"4. an indefinite interval or space of time: Come visit us for a spell."

You're both wrong. It means to say what letters make up a word.

Brad Pitt kind of annoys me right now too. But not as much as Tom Cruise.
