Crazy day!

Today was a nutty day. Our web-based network wasn't working so I couldn't do any work until this afternoon. This meant that all the reviews that hadn't been done were rushed over to me. I did 13 reviews this afternoon. Good practice, though. Also, the money plays a factor! =)
Tim didn't get called for jury duty today but he has to call back tomorrow afternoon. I just hope that over the next few days he is on phone standby only. That means we can still spend some nice time together.
I am currently watching Star Wars Episode I. I complained too, but Tim said we have to start in chronological order. Oh well, I'm just watching the parts with Liam Neeson and Darth Maul. That's really all that is worth watching. (Sorry Tim, you know how I feel) Anyway, I think it is time for a little Perfect Dark Zero, or PDZ as us gamers say. Check my xbox live profile below and on the right to see how I am doing!

Christmas has come and gone

So I'm sure that anyone reading my blog has probably read what Tim has to say already, or is going to read what Tim has said, so i will spare you the long, drawn out description of our holiday. In summary, it was really great. I got a digital camera so I will soon be posting beautiful pics a la Bianca! =)
Today we went to see King Kong. It was pretty good, but too long. I think Peter Jackson gets a bit wrapped up in everything and can't find a way to end his films early. Overall, the Lord of the Rings films are better I think, but Kong definitely was worth a look see. I usually don't like Jack Black in anything he does. He just seems like an unattractive bumbling idiot most of the time, but he was really good in Kong because it is all drama. This is the first I have seen of Adrien Brody and Naomi Watts, as their other movies have been about war and horror, two genres that I avoid regularly. Adrien Brody is odd, because he is funny looking when you first see him, but the more he is onscreen, the more adorable he becomes. Plus, nice body! =) Peter Jackson is producing The Lovely Bones and Halo as movies in the future. I haven't yet read The Lovely Bones but I will and everyone knows what a great game Halo is. I just hope he doesn't muck Halo up, because video game movies have a tendency of being crap.
Anyway, Christmas has come and gone and now we have the new year to look forward to. I hope that Tim gets some time off this week. He is scheduled for jury duty but hopefully he won't get called. Tim and Eric are going to play hearts on the 360 now so I'll sign off. I hope everyone had a nice, safe Christmas and I hope that Santa brought you all everything you wanted! Peace out homies. =)

Tonight Tim and I are going out to dinner with some of my old friends from chiropractic school. It should be fun to have a mini-reuninon. It's funny though, because so many people have left this area. It'll be nice to see everyone again.
I can't believe that Christmas is here! It really came up quick. Tim and I are just doing stockings this year for each other, but I've put some pretty "sizeable" things in his sock already! =) I can't wait for Christmas morning together. I have to find a Starbucks that is open on Christmas day before we go to his parents house. I'm going to need my fix for sure! Gingerbread latte, here I come.
As a sidebar, I am watching Starsky and Hutch with Ben Stiller. This movie just re-affirms my love for Jason Bateman. It's funny though, because he never looks like himself in old movies or in weird fire based child killing Twilight zone episodes wearing Burberry PJ's. Hmmmm...More love to him. Not as much as Matthew Perry though. He will always be my number one!

And that's why you don't use a one armed man to teach a lesson!

AD was brilliant tonight. They really have outdone themselves. Hi-larious. It's amazing that so many of my favorite shows have totally impressed me this weekend. Both the Simpsons and Family Guy were great (Who doesn't love the Church of Fonz or the mocking of Desperate Housewives? "The red headed one looks like someone pulled silly putty over their knee") And then tomorrow, we learn the identity of the Carver on Nip/Tuck! Yay!!!! I really hope that they don't do anything stupid and ruin my good show buzz that I have going on now.
Tim and I are settling in for the evening. He is playing Prince of Persia and I'm reading a book I got for Christmas from Cheri. I really wanted to watch crap shows on MTV but thank God for Tivo. I'll just watch them in the morning when I am working. =) Then I won't have to hear Tim complain about everything. He's lucky I am such an understanding wife. Ha Ha Ha! Fonzi be with you.
These two take great pics together
I don't know...people were drinking a lot!

The infamous teabag hat, donned by Kwanzaa Dave

Fun times at the annual Christmas party!
As you can tell, it was a wild and crazy time.

Cracking the nuts!

Today B, Tim, Sarah, Steve and I went to the Nutcracker in San Jose. We had lunch first and then went to Starbucks to sit and chat. I felt like we should have been filmed for a chic, trendy tv show. Love it!
The ballet was beautiful. (The men have the best bodies too!) That's why women like the ballet, I think. We can enjoy the dance and the music and then oggle the hot bods!
After the ballet, we all came back and watched The 40 year old Virgin. I have to say that I have a huge crush on Steve Carrell. He's such a cutie pie and hilarious! If you're not watching The Office, you should be. It's just like AD, where there is no laugh track and it is shot in an artistic way. Two thumbs up!
Anyway, I hope that everyone had a nice, safe weekend. Keep dry and don't leave your uncle teabag hanging! (AD never gets old! I love it!)

I'm bad, I know!

I can't believe that it has been 10 days since I last posted. I'm so bad! Although, the time has gone by so quickly because Tim and I have been busy bollocking the world for not doing their job. As you all know, our TV has been broken for more than a month now. But praise the Lord, we have a new Sharp Aquos TV! It's so pretty. As B said about her camera...lookit the baby! =)

I went to Santana Row today to get my nails done at Lavande nail salon. I highly recommend it. It's so clean and sterile which I love! It's not that much more expensive than a regular hole in the wall place, so I feel like it is worth it. Plus, they do such a great job. Nothing like a good mani-pedi, eh girls?

Right now I'm watching A Baby Story on TLC. That program makes me cringe. All that pushing and screaming just confirms that I am not ready for a child. (Bless you birth control, bless you). Plus, today at Sur la Table at Santana Row, this little boy who was about 3 years old screamed like he was being tortured for about 15 minutes straight while his mum shopped. Why do parents let their children scream like that? At least try to calm him down or take him out of the store. I was on the phone with Tim in the store and he asked if there was a T-Rex tearing down the store!

Anyway, the oven just beeped. I am making mini-muffins for a party tomorrow. German Chocolate with cream cheese frosting. Is it bad to have cupcakes for dinner? Hmmm...=)

We have returned

What a blast this weekend was in Disneyland. We had a nice drive down on thursday and a great dinner for my mum's birthday on Friday. I think the most fun we had was actually at the bar in the Grand California hotel. Ha! We had the worst service but the drinks were very strong. They are liberal with the alcohol there. My dad had to keep going up to the bar to get our drinks and then we were all tipsy because they were so strong. The best is that my dad tried to pay with a 100 dollar bill and the bartender just looked at it and handed it back to him about 2 minutes later. So basically, they couldn't figure out how to change a 100 dollar bill and we got some drinks for free! Good times. I'm really glad that my dad could come though, as I think it really made the trip special for my mum. The only bummer was that we didn't get to see any fireworks because there were "high winds". I felt really sad after that so Tim and I went to see another show that had mini fireworks. At least I got my fix of things blowing up. Pyro much?

On a different note, a rep from the HMO company that represents Kaiser is coming out to my office tomorrow to make sure it is suitable for treating patients. I think that I will pass! =) I can't wait to start accepting Kaiser patient's as I think it will make a huge difference to my business. Keep your fingers crossed peeps. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
