Party combo Disney


Partners for life

Random picture of the snow at Disneyland that Blogger put in the wrong place!

It doesn't get any better than this. The most photogenic people EVER!

When you wish upon a star

Only 1 more day til Disneyland! Waaaaaaah! This whole week has flown by for me as all I can think of is Disney. My parents are already down in southern Cal and will pick us up tomorrow afternoon. My favorite part of the trip is the fireworks and then at the end they shoot "snow" out of special machines. For fake snow, it sure does get me right in the gut =) I have yet to decorate the apartment so this will be a great start to the Christmas season.

As a side bar, Tim and I now know our price range for our new place...we'll start looking as soon as we are back from Disney. Put your feelers out there people...find us a place! =)

Viva Pinata

Hello boys and girls,
Once again please excuse my absence. The past week has been weird for me. I think that I mentioned in prevous posts that I've been working a lot over the past few weeks. By last Wednesday night, my body was so close to shutting down. I thought a few days of rest would pick me up but by Sunday I didn't really feel any different. On Monday, I was so stressed out that I felt like crying all the time. The smallest things would make me so mad. I still couldn't figure out what was going on with me. Then, Dr. W and I had a long talk on Tuesday and everything became so clear. This has really been a transition time for me both personally and professionally. Professional stuff I won't dwell on here because it is not right to do so. I don't want to end up like Heather B. from dooce. =) In terms of personal stuff, Tim and I are going to buying a place after Christmas and starting our lives again in a new place. It is exciting but scary at the same time. However, I noticed that after I let everything out I had so much more energy and would up cleaning like a mad person last night. I got really organized and feel great.
Tonight Tim is playing Viva Pinata which is a game about pinatas living in a garden, or something like that...=) There is a video game for everything now.
Anyway, I'm off to the bath as it is colder than all get out in the apartment. TTFN.

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I am planning on sleeping quite a bit the next 3 days to make up for all the lack of sleep from the last 2 weeks. I will emerge occasionally for coffee and slushies (lemon =) and pie and.....more pie.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


I had a rough day.
I ate chocolate chips for dinner with a glass of milk.
They were good.

Casino Royale

Tim and I just back from the new Bond movie Casino Royale. It was fantastic. I was a little skeptical but I have to say that it was really great. Plus, Daniel Craig is freakin HOT! At first I was kinda like "eh" but then when he came out of the ocean in his little europop tight swimming trunks, I was hooked! =) Double Yum. Anyway, I think this is one of the best Bond movies ever! Get out there and oggle his body girls!

And inside the man, you find his....nucleus.

I am watching Nacho Libre while working as Tim and I both fell asleep the other night when we first got it. I've forgotten how hi-larious this movie is. I usually hate Jack Black but I don't mind him with an accent. =)

Tomorrow we are going to talk at Cisco. I'm very excited about this as the potential for patients is huge. It's good that I am going along because I never get nervous while speaking in pubic so hopefully I can offer some support to the other doc.

Tim and I are having Thanksgiving at our house this year. I ordered my Turkey and pies today from PW market. They have a full turkey ready to pick up and eat along with delicious pies. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. Dr. W is giving me Friday off so I get a nice 4 day vacay. Then, 2 weeks later.....DISNEYLAND!

I know I promised pictures....they are for sure coming. I just have to transfer them from my camera. =)

Thank you

Just a quick post to say thank you to everyone who made my birthday special. Bee, Sarah, Tim, Cheri, Eric and Chris. Thanks. =) Pictures to follow....

Gears of War

The title of this post is apt as Tim is currently playing the newest Xbox 360 phenom. It is by far the best game for the 360 until Halo 3 next year. Me, I'm a Halo girl myself. I'm getting a sweatshirt made that says Girl Gamer, Your game or mine? on it....geek chic, I know. PS. the best part of Gears of War is the song they use in the commercial on TV. You'll all be hearing soon if you haven't yet.

Today was the first day that the two new girls worked alone. Everything is going well. We saw 52 patients. Dr. Lisa is exhausted....but content.

Only 1 more day of being 26. The baby of the group is growing up =)

Since this week has been hectic, Tim and I had a date tonight at TGI Friday's and talked about all the good memories we had there since we met. We've celebrated so many birthdays there. Tim met his life partner Steve there for the first time. (Tim was drinking a drink with an umbrella in it that freaked out Steve. =) Ha! Anyway, back to the story. Tim was kind enough to get me a massage, facial, manicure and pedicure at Lavande as an early birthday treat. My husband knows me well. (Bianca, "don't get married" is retracted for this period of time =))

Anyway, looking forward to my hot dogs and nachos on Friday. I'm betting on any horse with a name Lemon. All you devotees out there get your horse picks ready. It's almost post time!

God talks through poop

Last night Tim, Bianca and I went to see Running with Scissors. Tim was a good sport and came along with us. He hasn't read any of the books that B or I have, but he came anyway. While I know that RWS won't appeal to most people who are not fans of Augusten, but I'm glad that Ryan Murphy (nip/tuck creator) made it into a movie. It was funny though, as he used music in the movie the same way he does in nip/tuck. There is always music playing that compliments the situation well. Plus, I have a small crush on the actor who played Augusten. Very cute.

I had my weekend nap today. Devotees will remember that I usually nap on Sunday during sports, however, Tim is having a co-worker over tomorrow so I can't very well be drooling on the couch when he is here. Anyhoo, we went to the office this morning and Tim helped me move stuff around to get organized for our new staff. They are starting on Monday. I'm excited.

I'm going to get started cleaning the house now. I've been putting it off for a few days but I gotta bust that vacuum out now. I have half an hour until the Sharks game is on so I'd better get cracking! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Peace out.

The times they are a'changing

Things are turning over at work. We'll be getting 2 new people soon. I'm nervous but excited. Emphasis on nervous. I know that this will all be for the better in the end. It always is...right?

As promised

Our first picture is from the Bellagio gardens. Tim has a knack for taking pictures with his arm stuck out in front of us.This was the view from the front of the hotel. I highly recommend Paris and would stay there again.
The gorgeous family shot in the Bellagio lobby. Note my dad's new movie star teeth. Not bad for a coal miner from middle England.

Today has been an interesting day and I've spent some time browsing the internet. I'm toying with the idea of starting a journal. While I know the blog is supposed to be a form of journal writing, I also think that we all have some things that we have to say but only in private. This brings me to my next point. Everyone should visit postsecret This format was used in the video for the song "dirty little secret" where people held up cards in front of their face that said things they had always wanted to say. This had got me thinking. What would my postcard say? In fact, what would yours?

The Red Piano

Tim and I are back from Vegas. What a great weekend. We went to see Elton John on Friday night and then saw Phantom of the Opera on Satuday night. In between, we shopped at the Forum and walked our asses off. My dogs are barking! =) Unfortunately, we didn't come away with any big winnings but we did get to play all our favorite machines. Pictures to follow...

Monday, October 09, 2006


We saw 69 patients today. I did 2 re-exams and 4 new patient exams. Yay for us...but now I'm pooped. pooped!

Sunday, October 08, 2006


Much to our delight, TNT is now in hi def on comcast. Subsequently, they are showing movies around the clock. Right now Castaway is on. I have never seen this movie in full but I like the few bits I have seen. Tim just asked me if I thought i would go crazy on an island by myself. I actually think I wouldn't. I really enjoy being alone. i don't know if it stems from me being an only child but I would think so. The only thing I might have problems with is building the fire. Although, I do have a lot of motivation so I think I would keep trying until something got lit. =)
I do think it is slightly alarming that he talks to a volleyball covered in blood though. Oh well, to each their own I guess.

Today I sat outside in the sun for awhile and read. There is nothing better than reading on a lazy afternoon. I could use some new books though as I have re-read most of my books so many times at this point. Perhaps a trip to barnes and noble is due. Actually, not a bad idea.....

The Emerald City

So I spent the day in Seattle at a chiropractic conference yesterday. We left at 6:30 AM and were home by 10:00. It was a really worthwhile trip athough my body is paying for it right now. It's 9:04 and Tim and I are going to bed soon, I think. Anyhoo, back to the conference. It was really motivational and got me excited for the remainder of the year. We are doing a big promotion at the end of the year with charities and the food bank so I'm really looking forward to that. Plus, we are going to decorate the office for fall and those of you who have been to my apt know that I love decorating for seasons! I did take my camera yesterday, but I didn't take any pictures. We didn't have enough time to go to Pike Place Market but we did go to the downtown mall and walk around to kill time. I really enjoyed it but the weather was the pits!
However, I just bough a new equestrian riding jacket (as if I ride) from LL Bean which is super warm. I took my Burbs scarf as well and I was sweating =) (B, all I need now is shoes! =)) All in all, I think that it was a good time and totally worth it.

Tim and i had a nice morning. He went and got Starbucks for me as I was dragging. His parents came over for a bit to watch the 49ers game, which of course was very sad. I had to leave though as my, my mum and my aunt went to San Fran to Pier 39 to see "Menopause, The Musical". I know it sounds a bit odd but it was great. It was four women telling stories about their lives through popular music with the lyrics changed. I highly recommend you all take your moms to see it.

Speaking of moms, mine has been worried about me for the last week. I had a really draining work week and felt like crap by Friday. I also felt like I was complaining all the time, but it was just that I had so much on my mind that had to get out or else I would have gone crazy. Plus, I got all kinds of crazy hormones going on right now, if you know what I mean. =) So I'm feeling more positive now and I think this week will be a good one. I am trying to stay positive and practic separating what happens at the office from home. All doctors go through a transition period when they learn to separate themselves from their patients and office dramas. I think I just wasn't as good at it last week. Oh well, God gave us Mondays to make a fresh start.

At Last

Robin's dress was so gorgeous. Such the beaming bride!

This was taken post wedding and after several glasses of chapagne!

I know I'm not really smiling in this one, but I like it. =)

All in all, it was a wonderful wedding. The ceremony was very sweet and James started to cry when Robin came down the aisle with Rich. I love weddings! We danced like fiends all night. I was so happy because the DJ (same as my wedding) played Sexy Back (my new favorite song). We stayed at the deAnza afterwards with everyone and sat in the lobby until 1:00 just talking and hanging out. It was a really wonderful time.

On another note, Tim and I are off to hockey this friday. I'm going to get a new sweatshirt with my "shark pack" discount. Yippee! I have to say, the Sharks organization really takes care of their fans.

Anyhoo, it is time for my nightly bath and milk/cookie/chocolate combination. I'm looking for a new set of jammies too as the nights have turned cool. Hmmm..perhaps a trip to JC Penneys? Who's with me? =)

Rocket Man

Last night my mum, dad, Tim and I went to see Elton John at the Shark tank. It was freakin sweet. He played for almost 3 hours. It was a nice mix of old stuff and some new things off his upcoming album. I've certainly seen enough middle age dancing for awhile now. We'll be seeing him again in 3 weeks at Caesar's too. Can't wait for that show too. It's a slightly different set I think. I was really happy though because he played an extended version of Rocket Man which is my favorite Elton song. My mum got her dose of Philadelphia Freedom right at the beginning. It is her favorite song because she heard it in a McDonald's in Philidelphia when she and my dad first were coming to the US and she couldn't believe what an amazing place America was. I have been spoiled with all of my travels so I can't even fathom what it would be like to come to America from our tiny little town in England for the first time. =) Anyway, the show was great and I'm glad that we all got to go. It was funny though because there were religious protestors outside with megaphones and their "Jesus Forgives Sins" t-shirts spouting off about how we're all sinners for supporting a gay man. Whatever people. The man is entitled to his life and whatever makes him happy is okay with me. Elton John has been in a relationship that has lasted longer than most hetero relationships. So pardon me while I get on and off my soapbox, it's time for me to Crocodile Rock. la la la laaaaaa, la la la la laaaaaaaa, la la la la laaaaaa! =)

At last, my love has come along

The groom and I take a breather while dancing.

Me, Kelley and her maid of honour Corrine

There were over 350 people at this wedding!

The beautiful bride

The ceremony outside in the botanical gardens.

Tim and I were very blessed to be able to go to Canada for this wedding. I always knew that I would see Kelley and Alex get married, but words can't describe what a feeling it was. The ceremony took place outside and the weather was beautiful. I was surprisingly tear-free through the ceremony and the ceremony was short but sweet. After that, we had a long break until the reception in the evening. Tim and I went back to the hotel and I caught up on some much needed sleep while Tim watched all of season 2 of Lost. He is completely caught up now, ready for the new season. =)

After our nap/Lost watching, we went down to get the party started. The dinner was fantastic. We had 5 courses! Of course, it was an Italian influenced event so you can imagine how tasty everything was. Like I said before, I was able to hold in the tears until I signed the guestbook. I think then it hit me that Kelley and I now don't know when we'll see in each other again. I always knew when she left last year that I would see her at my wedding and then at her wedding, but now....who knows. We have to get together to do some continuing education in Vegas or something along those lines. I can't go more than a year without seeing her. But it was really good that I was able to cry about it and then make peace with it. I know that she is where she is supposed to be. I was just lucky to have her in my life for 3 and half years. True friendship knows no boundaries or time zones or life changes. Seeing her again was just like the old times. I know that she and I will always be connected no matter how much distance separates us.

And in the end it's good to be home. Nothing is better than walking into your own space after you've been away. Like I said, Kelley is where she is supposed to be and I am too. It was just nice to be able to hug her, say I love you and I miss you. I said my peace. I am content. =)

Spendy Weekend

Tim and I had a nice weekend. We a great dinner on Friday night with my Boss/good friend from school. Then we introduced him to the world of video games and I think we may have converted him. =)
Yesterday we went to Tim's parents for breakfast and then went to Best Buy to get AD3 as Tim's dealer was late on sending it. It was great to watch the DVD's but sad to think the show is really over. Nothing much to look forward to now.
Today we went to my parents house and went to Target and Ulta to get some bits and pieces we needed. I love errand running days.
So the spendyness came in on friday. I went to Nordstroms with my mum to look for a shirt to wear to Kelley's wedding this weekend. However, I found more than one shirt that I liked by Nine West. Of course, they were a little on the pricey side, but hey, I've never really bought expensive clothes before. Plus, one of the shirts was a medium! Ha! All my exercising has really paid off. I don't think that I've lost that much weight, but my body is definitely reshaped now. Woot. (Of course this weekend I did no exercising and ate fast food about 3 times. EEK) Back to the drawing board tomorrow.

More than meets the eye

Tim and I are watching the Transformers movie. That's right. The MOVIE. He just sang along to one of the soundtrack songs. It almost made him cry. Me too, for different reasons of course. My husband is a child.

My new phone

Here is my new phone. I was thinking about upgrading soon anyway, but then I got a thing in the mail saying since I'm such a loyal customer I could get a new phone for 15 bucks after rebate. Of course they think that I won't bother with rebates, but I always do and I always get my money back. Anyway, I bought a bluetooth headseat as well because I am always on the phone. Plus, now B and I can be bluetooth buddies and walk around in public places like fools =)

Beyond that, Tim and I ran errands today. We went to Target, got his hair cut, got booze from BevMo, new phone and then I went and got my nails and eyebrows done. I am sitting here with an ice pack on my brows as we speak in hope that the redness will go down soon. Ah the joys of being a whitey.

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

we have a new air con!

Tim and I have a new air conditioner. It only took about 3 months of phone calls, but we now have a great new air con. It has a remote! We are having our carpets cleaned in September has well. The apartment is going to be nice and clean and updated for the people that move in after we leave. =)

Tonight's Netflix includes The Man, Flight Plan and V for Vendetta. My online system for work is messed up right now, so it's going to be a long evening. However, nothing better than some good grub, movies and time to do work. =)

Sunday, August 13, 2006

At least I got the timing right today

Today my pals and I went to Great America to celebrate Bianca's birthday. At least I showed up on the right day. Those of you who read my last blog entry will realize that I thought we were going on Saturday. Ha Ha. Oh well. It was one of those "moments". =)

Tim and I just watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. What a great movie. I highly recommend that you all put it in your queue. A little action, comedy and Robert Downey Jr. Yum. Now we are watching Firewall. Harrison Ford is about to go apeshit I think. He just beat somebody down with a blender. He's rough like that (although looking slightly old). Oh yeah...he's super rough.

My nap today was only for about 10 minutes, unfortch. I fell asleep at the beginning of Firewall but then Tim touched my leg and I woke up. I'll have to go to bed soon to make up for my napping time I missed today. ZZZZZZZZ =)

Kona Krunch

I enjoy macadamia nuts as much as the next person. However, when you cover them with chocolate and rice krispy treats and bring them back from Hawaii, I think they just taste better. One of the girls that I work with at my work comp job just got back from vacay and brought the tasty nuts back with her. I've had about 5 already tonight. They are so damn good. Plus, nuts have good fats in them, right? =)

Tim is currently pleased as his is killing the undead. (He loathes the undead) However, the game is being cheap and he almost had a "Lost" type breakdown. No controllers have been thrown at the screen yet.....yet. He is still working out the bugs, so to speak.

I received my super size Glamour in the mail today and I can't wait to get cracking at it. I must get in the bath with my Kona Krunch and glass of milk and read. Tim thinks it's weird that I eat in the bath. But I say, why not eat in the bath. If you spill, it all goes down the drain. Plus, I have lovely bath gels to play with as well that make the experience all the more fun. My dad just stayed at the Peadbody hotel in Florida where they have ducks that live in the lobby and walk around freely (Somebody must have the job title, duck shit cleaner upper, as ducks shit a lot!) and he brought me back about 5 little duck soaps and 5 bottles of duckie bath gel. I'm looking forward to using it tonight. It's time for "a good do" I think, as we say in England. That means a good wash and scrub and moisturize etc...everyone deserves a good do every now and then. =)

In conclusion, I would just like to say that I'm glad Wednesday is over. Last week was a little too exhausting for me and my back has been playing up today. It's amazing how many Chiros have to quit the biz early due to back injury. However, I did get adjusted right before I left for the evening so maybe a nice warm bath will finish me of. I do have some more work to do, but I always feel more refreshed after my bath. I'm looking forward to celebrating Bee's b-day this weekend and I'm looking forward to my nap on Sunday. That's right, I plan my naps. You should all try it. In fact, your goal for this weekend is to plan a nap at some point in time. (Except for Eric and Chris who should be partying like rock stars in Vegas with Celine. You can sleep on the plane =)) Peace out homies.

Anniversary weekend

So this weekend was our 1 year wedding anniversary. It seems strange that we've been married for a year already as time has passed by so quickly.

We were driving in the car the other day and I was talking about work with Tim and how this week is going to be rough because I am running the practice for 4 days. Tim then paused and said can I believe where I am right now? It seems like such a long time ago that I was so depressed about my life and crying everyday not knowing what was going to happen to me. Now, I have an awesome stable job and couldn't be happier. Interesting how life changes so quickly.

Anyway, Tim and I stayed at Santana Row at Hotel Valencia last night. We checked in to a gorgeous room and then proceeded to watch the free HBO like the dorks that we are. After that, we went to the Vintage Wine Bar and sat outside and had some wine and a meat and cheese platter. I would have never thought that Tim would have ever been happy to sit out at Santana Row with all the other posers and ponces and metrosexuals, but he was kind enough to partake last night. We then decided to go see Clerks II at CineArts. Now I enjoy the Kevin Smith very muchly, however, there were some moments in this film (discussions of "ass to mouth" sexuality and a scene with "inter-species erotica") that I could have done without. However, it was mostly just good fun and fitting as Tim and I love Jay and Silent Bob.

After the movie, we went to the Left Bank for dinner. It was very nice although we ate way too much food and had a ton of drinks. It was fun though and I kept on reminding myself that it was money well spent due to the significance of the event. Also, the gift for the first anniversary is paper, which money is made out, of so i think that that somehow works out ok.

In the end we had a wonderful anniversary. Tim got me a totally rockin stereo for my car that runs my iPod from the glove compartment. I got Tim and new Sharks jersey that he's been wanting. Overall, I think that it was a great weekend. Today after checkout we came home and watched Red Eye and now we're going to watch the Island.

Oh yeah, I also booked us a trip to Vegas with my parents in October to go see Elton John at Caesar's. We've been trying to do this for over a year so i finally just said I'm doing it, we'ere going. Anyway, I got a super sweet deal on Expedia for two nights at Paris and flight for 411 per person. Expedia is my friend. We are flying to Canada for Kelley's wedding with Expedia. I rented a car with them as well. Love the discount travel.

As a side note, my last post was about how we were going to watch Lost. Unfortunately, ABC has decided to put on some singing, American idol wannabe show and not show Lost re-runs anymore. I thought Tim was going to break the TV he had such a fit. He has turned into one of you know who you are =)

Anyway, that's all for now. I must try to convince Tim to stop killing the Nazi's that he's been working on all day (XBOX 360). Wish me luck!

America's got talent

Wednesday night has fast become talent competition night on television. Every station has some kind of talent show...dancing, rockstaring, talenting etc. Of course Tim and I just watch all this stuff to waste time until Lost starts (since Tim has become a convert). Once cannot miss the high def broadcast of Lost. (Insert sarcasm here).

Incidentally, we watched Closer the other night. Talk about an f-ed up movie. Holy crap. How that film was every a play...I don't know. Anyway, I love Clive Owen so I could enjoy his performance, but I wouldn't recommend the movie if you are looking for a light evening of entertainment.

Tim and I just finished dinner and I think I will make some cookies tonight. I feel like baking a bit..=)

Sunday, July 16, 2006

movie night

Tim and I just watched the Transporter 2. It's a pretty good action adventure movie and not really that violent. Plus, Jason Statham is pretty cute, I must say. Now we are moving on to Closer. It is rated R for graphic sexuality and such. Hmm...better than graphic violence, I say.

We had dinner with my parents at the Macaroni Grill tonight. They have some good grub there. I highly recommend it. =)

I had to go to work today for about 5 hours. It was totally worth it though as we got a lot of work done. I have several insurance/billing projects to do this week, but I think it will make this week go by quickly. Nothing better than a quickly passing week.

In addition, I have to give a birthday shout out to Sarah. Happy Birthday, and many more...on channel 4...and scooby doo....on channel 2 and so on and so forth.

Sunday, July 09, 2006

Wedding etc.

So here are the new pictures from Cheri's wedding.
I apologize for my laxity with posting, but I vow to be better in the future. =)

Chris and Eric looking fab as always!

This is a dangerous foursome....=)

Anyway, the wedding was really beautiful and we had a super time. The hotel we stayed at was really nice and I especially enjoyed it as the chair in our room was Burberry. I tried to steal it but I think they would have noticed and I can't really afford a 3,000 dollar chair right best that Tim stopped me from hauling it down to my car.

Yesterday I went to see The Devil Wears Prada with my girls (Sar and B). It was cute but very different from the book. That is always to be expected though, as books are ALWAYS better than the movies. After the film, we took a stroll around the Great Mall. We all wound up purchasing some good stuff. I'm especially happy as I got two new pairs of jeans. Let me just say that shopping for pants is pretty much torture for me. If I wind up going to hell, my punishment will be shopping for pants. In this day and age, everything is low rise. However, they don't take into account that sometimes, those of us with a short torso need a higher rise. My waist is techinically almost up by my boobs. =) Ha Ha. Anyway, I got two new pairs of Calvin Klein jeans that are very comfy and fit well. I will have to stretch them out a bit though, as one always does when one buys new pants. Last night I put them on and did the usual squat to the floor, leg stretches and rolling around on the bed that I'm sure most of you girls out there can relate to. However, I think that the more I wear them, the looser they will be. Did you know that you are not supossed to wash denim unless there is an actual spill on them? It keeps them comfy for much longer. Of course you must wash them if you are stinky, but girls usually are not.

The world cup final is almost over. It's in the 68th minute. I'm not really rooting for either side as England was sent home by Portugal (Grr...Chris). We have to hate the frogs as that is what the English do, however, so many of them play for clubs in England and Zidane is so old that I wish he could retire with a championship. On the other hand, Italy is a good club and I'm sure Kelley and Alex are rooting for them with all their heart =)

So, I'm going to finish my giant coffee I got from Krispy Kreme this morning. Their coffee is not that bad and is about 3 times as big as Starbucks. It's a vat really...but what the hell, it's Sunday. Plus, I'm wearing my exercise clothes that I don't exercise I may as well take it to the max and drink coffee and doughnuts to top off the day of non-excercise. So, if any of you are out there wearing your exercise clothes that you don't exercise in, go get yourself a vat of coffee, a doughnut and sit on the couch. Believe me, you'll love it. =)

i have bangs

yes, it's true. I cut my hair again today. It's just below my shoulders but now I have sexy, side-swoopy bangs. Yummy. I think this is the best haircut I have ever gotten.
Ok, so what the hell was up with Clay Aiken's hair on the Americal Idol finale. He looks even more gay now.....someone should tell Clay that the way to stop gay rumors is not look more gay. It's true.
Today, tomorrow and Friday I am running my office alone. Today was good..I saw about 40 people or so and I am only slightly tired. I'm going to hop into the bath soon and read my new allure mag. I'll take some tea and a smidgen of choco to snack on. Nothing better than that!
On a sad note, my grandmother is not doing well in England and my mum is going on Friday. It shouldn't be too long now before she passes which would be a good thing as she seems to be in a bit of pain now. =( Anyway, keep my fam in your thoughts right now.

I return and it's winter again

I returned from sunny Dallas yesterday to winter in California. It actually rained today! Tim and I went to see the DaVinci code this afternoon and when we came out it was raining.
So I enjoyed the DaVinci code. I didn't think it was nearly as bad as everyone made it out to be. It was just a bit of fun and adventure. They did change it some from the book which I think made it less dramatic, however, it was pretty true to the story. I hate Tom Hanks' long hair though. He looks like a greasy old man. Audrey Tatou is super cute though, and Paul Bettany is awesome as Silas. I give it 3.5/5.
I have to unpack my bags and organize myself for tomorrow. That's always the crappy part about traveling. Unpacking sucks. =)

Dallas Baby!

So I've completed my first long day here in Dallas for my Chiropractic conference. It was a good day. Very informative and lots of young people here which is good. It's more fun with a young crowd. I'm staying at the Adams Mark hotel. It's massive. I'm living on room service which I LOVE in hotels. I am a room service addict. I've had 2 cheeseburgers and now a Cobb salad. (as separate meals) I'm also having a TaB energy drink....yum. Life doesn't get much better than that.
Only two more days til I come home. Yay.

Saturday, May 13, 2006


So we lost. Twice. Boo. On the plus side, we went to Stanley's sports bar with my parents at Logitech Ice rink and watched the game there. I got bit on the head by Sharkie the mascot so I'll post that pic when I upload everything like I have been promising to do.
I'm going into the office for a few hours today to do some cleaning and organizing. I just can't stand it anymore and I hate that our patients can see so much of the front desk. yuck. Watch out comes Dr. Lisa! =)
We are going to Cheri's for dinner tonight so that should be fun to see the fab gang. I'm going to try to stop by Bee's today before I go over to Cheri's to marvel at her new chairs and just hang out for a bit like urban chic girls like us do.
Tomorrow night we are going to the Shark's game at the Tank. Good luck to us. I will have a bleeding ulcer before this series is through. Grrrrr.

Anxiety times 10

In another 5 minutes, we will know who has won the overtime between San Jose and Edmonton. I really hate these tight games. It makes me have serious anxiety. My poor tired body can't take it. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Work is going really well. I've started adjusting more and more and I'm enjoying it. I'm going to Dallas next week for a seminar so that should be fun. I'm going to make use of the pool I'm sure, and work on my tan for Robin's wedding during the down time.

Only 3 more minutes to go. i can't take this any more.

Sunday, May 07, 2006


Yes, in case you haven't heard, the Sharks won over the Edmonton Oilers tonight. It was an amazing game. The tank was rocking and we have new playoff towels to add to our collection. So much fun. I will put up some pictures tomorow when I upload everything to my computer. We're going to the game tomorrow night as well, so I'm sure there will be more pictures then.

This weekend was a little bit of a bust for me. I had to go to a seminar which was okay. I learned some new cool stuff but it was a little too far out for me. However it's always important to try to be as open minded as possible and just take whatever you can from situations like that.

It's now 10pm and once the laundry comes out of the dryer, I will be going to sleep. I managed to get all my work comp cases done tonight so I can have a bit of a sleep in in the AM. Yes, 7:30 perhaps...=)

Here comes the sun..

So the weather has finally turned around and we are now blessed with our sweet California weather. Today was so beautiful. They opened a new Starbucks right by our apartment so Tim and I went for a walk down there this morning to get our exercise. Then, I went to Cheri's bridal shower. It was beautiful and the food was really great. It's so exciting to see someone else planning a wedding. It makes me want to get married again! =)
We sat outside to eat and while I put on sunscreen, I missed a few parts on the arms so I'm a little patchy. I think that tomorrow I should be able to put on the old bikini and lay outside. I have to start tanning now for Robin's wedding in September. Although, I have to be careful to avoid strap tan lines because our dresses have little spaghetti straps least I have my bra get up from my wedding that I can wear. We all know how much support the cans need. =) Plus, since I started working I've lost 6 pounds so I feel even better with the cute Target bathing suits I have.
Tomorrow Bee and I are going to see David Sedaris. I'm so excited to see him. I love his work and I'm looking forward to seeing him in person. If you've never heard of him, check out his books on amazon.
And finally, Tim and I watched Capote today. All that's left now is Good Night and Good Luck and Munich in my Oscar viewing. I'm not sure if I'm going to watch Munich though. It doesn't really seem like my kind of film. Capote was really good though. Philip Seymour Hoffman totally deserved to win the Oscar. He was fantastic. This was a better movie than Crash and Brokeback but I can see why Crash won. (B- there were only a few really violent parts that i couldn't watch and I'll tell you when they are if you want to put it in your cue) Anyway, Capote is winning in my personal Oscar race right now.
Time to put after sun lotion on my patchy arms before bed. Peace out.

Tuesday, April 25, 2006 promised

Don't you love Tim in the Nemo hat? People actually buy this stuff and wear it! I love it. Of course you know they take it off as soon as they leave Anaheim. Note the playoff beard. Not the I am a big fan of it, but the Sharks are in the playoffs and we are going on Thursday to the game so I understand.

This trip I decided that I wanted lots of pictures of my family and I as we usually take lots of scenery pics but not a lot of people pics. Tim and my Dad were on photo duty and they did a super job. This is my new smile I'm practing. Note how I'm not showing too much teeth...too much teeth equals Lisa with squinty eyes...yuck.

My dad looks surprised in this picture..but this was just an attempt to get him to smile as he suffers from the Steve Brogden syndrome of not smiling in pictures. You just have to surprise them. That seems to be the key.

Here is Tim and I on California Screamin, about to be shot out of this starting gate like a cannon. I must say, this ride I can only go on once before my churros/coke/other sugary snaks/ mickey shaped ice cream etc starts to rise. Go figure =)

So in the end it was a great trip. We stayed at the Paradise Pier hotel which was really nice and a fun change from the Park Inn that we usually stay in. It's been a long time since I actually stayed at the Disneyland Resort as they call it. The last time was when I was little and Robin got sick when we jumped on the beds and Brian shot little nerf golf balls onto the roof of the building below us. Good times, of course.

It's always a bummer coming home as it's hard to come down from the sugar/Disney high that I get. Actually, we really didnt' do that bad with our eating this time and didn't gorge ourselves on too much crap. The first night I was worried because they cancelled the fireworks due to high winds. So we went to see Fantasmic, this super cool water show where they back project film clips onto a big sheet spray of water and then of course there is fire and fireworks which I always enjoy. On Saturday night, they delayed the fireworks for a bit but then they went on with the show. It was cool because they had a set of fireworks for every Disney ride, including a set for the Electrical Parade which now runs in California Adventure. So, I was happy in the end as I got to see my fireworks and celebrate the 50th anniversary before it ends in 2 weeks. All in all I think the trip was probably the best I've ever had. At least I have our Christmas trip to look forward to! Viva Disney!

Monday, April 24, 2006


Ok boys and girls. I have finally seen Brokeback Mountain. Now I have seen 3 of the Oscar nominated movies...hopefully Capote will soon follow once I return Brokeback to Netflix. So...I give it 2.5 out of 5. Maybe because I didn't see it right when it first was around, but it really wasn't all that great. I think Jake Gynlehallisgolooly did a good job, but I didn't love Heath Ledger..not that hot. Oh well. At least I've finally seen it. I can check it off my list. Of course, I love that it has inspired my new favorite phrase, hense the title of this post. Broke...back!

Tune in later for pics and discussion of Disneyland...I promise.

House of Mouse

Hey all! It's time for a new post. I have peeps in the great white north who are relying on me! =) So, tonight I'll be posting the pics from Disney this weekend and giving an update on everything. Bear with me as I'm slow on the posting...

So tired

Friday is finally here and I'm truly exhausted. I lost all my sleeping/napping time last weekend due to my continuing ed seminar. Therefore, I didn't get a chance to really re-charge the batteries. Then, this week was crazy. We saw 50 people today between 7:30 and 12:00. Wave after wave of people came into the office. I think the bad weather makes people feel worse so they are looking for a little healing time with us. It's great though, to see how many people we are helping. It's amazing to see someone come in barely able to walk and leave in much better shape. I finally am realizing why I got into Chiropractic. It was always the standard answer in school.."because I want to help people and make them feel better". But I think that we had no idea what was in store for us in the future. My experiences now are so real. These are real people who's lives are devastated by pain, and our office is their only refuge. Now that may sound over-dramatic, and I would have agreed with that in school. I just thought it would be cool to be a doctor and get to treat people. But now that I am actually in a successful practice, I am seeing how awesome things can be. It really is a great feeling at the end of the day to be able to say that today, I did something that made a difference in someone's life.

Moving on, I was very productive tonight and paid a lot of bills online and filed away all my old bills that have been sitting in a pile in my cupboard. I did all this while Tim and I watched the Lizzie McGuire movie. Yes, yes...ha ha. However, I do enjoy the Disney as you all know, and it was a cute movie. Plus, it was that or Herbie: Fully Loaded and I didn't think that I could handle and Hohan this evening.

Well, I think it's time for bed. Hopefully, I'll be able to sleep in a bit in the morning (that's only in tha mornin!). Time to work off that sleep debt. Here we go...

Lok at Number 16

That bitch...I bet she was forcing him to drink...Ha Ha! I love him...Hate her.

Add this to the addiction list

Tab Energy
So this drink can be added to my addiction list. I have to say that I love the's truly addictive and maybe outrageous...truly, truly, truly outrageous...and sidebar...where is Rainbow Brite? She could totally make a comeback right now. All things old are new again. New GI Joe, new Ninja Turtles. I'm sure Hasbro or whoever could pimp her out for the new millenium. Man, I loved her.

On another note, my life is so busy right now. The practice I work in is thriving and we are seeing tons of people. Then, I come home at night and work on my work comp job until bedtime. I just keep reminding myself that it's great to have the extra money so that I can do fun things and be deciding to go to Sundance with Bee next year. Maybe we'll try on some more Jimmy Choos in the swag rooms while we stalk Matthew Perry. Yum. Time for another Tab Energy.

Good times, Good times

I didn't post the pic below at the time, but I love this one of Eric and Tim. Those of you who know me well can attest to my obsession with new "Brokeback". Brokeback indeed...=) I actually think that Bianca took this picture because I was quite tipsy from the libations that evening and doubt that I had a steady hand!

So anyway, this weekend has been great so far. We went to see Bob Saget again on Friday night. That guy is so freakin funny. I don't know if it's sick or not but I also think he's kinda cute. Hmmm.. Anyway, he was great and we had a nice dinner there as well.

Bianca and Tim and I went to see Inside Man at the movies today. It was a good thriller..well written and keeps you guessing to the end. Then Bianca and I went to Target and had a very successful shopping trip. After that, we went to Nordstrom Rack to peruse the merchandise. We had a good time trying on all the 5 inch heel designer shoes for 300 bucks. At one point (the highlight really), this woman in the corner by the shoes let out a fart so loud! She ran away but Bianca and I totally saw her and almost killed ourselves laughing while falling off our stilletto heels. =) It wasn't just a little thhp was a full on loud ass butt rumber fart that had a trail off ending. I love it! Anyway, I had been drinking that new TAB energy drink (love it by the way) so I think I was a little drunk/high on all that energy stuff which made me laugh even harder. I swear, moments like that are so classic.
The weekend is halfway over and I feel like I still have so much to do. Tim has been playing Oblivion along with half of the gaming world, so I'm sure I'll get some time tomorrow to get all my stuff done. Seacrest, Out!

I have OCD

I'm obsessed. When I get on a kick of something, I can't control myself. Right now I am watching Deal or No Deal on NBC. I actually yelled at the person playing. She totally duffed it up! I bet she's going to get a terrible deal from the banker now. (I know, it's sad) Let me now sum up the rest of the things I am currently obsessed with:
1) "Unwritten" by Natasha Beddingfield
2) 8th and Ocean on MTV
3) Allure/Glamour/Real Simple magazines
4) Squirrels and their abnormally large balls ( I'm sick, I know)
5) Chocolate Easter Eggs by Cadbury with the crispy outer shell and yummy choco inside
6) Anything at Target
7) Online Bill Pay with Bank of America
8) Making lists

I think I need therapy...hmmm

Boo sharks

Tim and I went to the sharks game today. It was an odd game because they played not very well for the first period but then came back. Unfortunately, they lost in a shoot out. Close games like that make me nervous....I have anxiety when it comes down to the end. Oh well. At least we had yummy hot dogs and I got a cool long sleeved T to wear to future games.
Tim and I are going to settle down now and watch some netflix. I'm not sure what we have but I'm sure it'll be good. In terms of new movies, I really want to go see V for Vendetta but I know it's super violent. However, everyone so far has said it is a super movie and a great commentary on the way things could be with the Bush administration. Plus I love Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving so I think this will have to be a movie that I just go to knowing that I'll have to turn away at some parts...
Anyway, I also have a bunch of work I have to get to. Peace out.

Wednesday, March 15, 2006

I love Wednesdays (and juice)!

Wednesday's are fun for me. I work from 8:30-10:30 and then from 2:30-7:30. It gives me a nice chance to run errands, clean the house and have a nap. I have 5 or 6 re-exams rescheduled for this evening so I'd better rest up before I go back to work. Actually, the apartment just needs a quick tidy and I'll be good to go.

I need to go to Target and the market. Target has such great clothes right now. I'm really surprised. I haven't had a good browse around there in awhile so I think this weekend it will be time for a browse. I know this can be dangerous for the wallet, but, everyone needs a Target fix on a regular basis. =) I also need my eyebrows doing. You know how you can try to wrangle them yourself....but then it gets to the point when they overtake you? I think I'm there now. I must have them groomed this weekend.

Anyway, nothing much else to report. It's nap time I think. Zzzzzzzzz.

The long and now short of it

Well, the cutting took place on Friday. I have to say that I was very nervous. However, I'm really glad that I did it. Its sooooo much easier to take care of now and it takes about 5 mins to curl it. Yipee for short hair.
Tim and I had a nice weekend. We were bums and ran errands. I love those kinds of weekends. I made an attempt to start watching Walk the Line, however, I had to break off to jet up to Fremont to adjust my mum as she hurt her back. I'm sure I'll get back to the movie soon and then I will add my two cents. (As always)
I'm going in late today to work so I'm going to go out to breakfast with my mum. I love breakfast. If I could go out for a meal, breakfast would always be my choice! Too bad Tim isn't a breakfast person.....well at least we usually go to places that make lunch type food at the same time.
Anyway, it's another crazy rainy day. Drive safe everyone. Seacrest out!

Thursday, March 09, 2006

Say Goodbye

Well boys and girls, the time has come for me to part with my long hair. I've decided to finally cut it tomorrow. It's not going to be super short, but several inches will be lopped off. Devotees will remember (That's for you B) that I've had long hair for awhile now. However, I'm trying to not look so young at work now so I think a haircut is in order. People can be a little wary of a doctor who is half their age and looks about 18. =) So....the next time you all see me I will be a few strands lighter but hopefully looking a few years older! Til then...

Up in arms

Are we all ready to take up arms and protest the surprise win of Crash last night, as everyone else in Hollywood seems to be? The Oscars have turned into something difficult for me, as I'm finding over the past few years that I'm not seeing a lot of nominees until they come out on DVD so of course I haven't seen them when the award season rolls around. Ironically enough, Tim and I just watched Crash yesterday. Do I think that is deserved it's win? I don't know. I haven't seen all the rest so I don't think it is fair to say. I already have the other movies in the que on Netflix but who knows when Brokeback Mountain will roll out on the DVD? Crash was a good movie and I liked it more than Tim. However, it was more of a "How many famous people can we pack into a movie about stereotypes" type of deal. I think the best part of it was Ludacris talking about how black people shouldn't use the n-word anymore because it is degrading. White people don't go around calling each other honky and cracker, he says. So why do black people continue to use that word? He makes a good point although an ironic one (I'm sure it was planned that way), because as a rapper, he is the champion of using the n-word every chance he gets. Oh well, Crash is at least decent, but I won't make my final decision on it's win worthiness until I've seen the rest. Hell, I just saw Finding Neverland which was nominated last year! Good movie by the way. Johnnie Depp at his finest.
Anyway, enough about the Oscars. I have to finish my work comp stuff before our office meeting this morning. Have a good day all...

How embarassing for me

Well I admit it. I have been terrible over the last few weeks with the posting. Although, it is due to the fact that I have started working and don't get home until 7:30 or so now. I can't believe that I have finally entered the working world. I've always been a student, so this whole experience has been crazy.
My first week was good. I basically followed the head doc around and took her notes for her. I'm getting myself acquainted with all their procedures and I think this is going to be a great place for me to be. I feel like I fit in really well so I think that I really did make the right decision.
In other news, here are some pictures from Karaoke last night. It was girls versus boys in the medley game at this point. Eric and Tim were singing Take On Me by A-Ha, which we all know is a quality song. Especially the point where the lead singer hits that really high note (pause for you all to sing it in your head) Well, Eric and Tim can both hit that note. Impressive, I know. It was a great time and I think we are ready for the Karaoke circuit. =)
I promise I'm going to be better with my postings. I swear. I know there are peeps out there who rely on the blog for updates on my life ...Shout out to Kelley in Canada! Peace out.

The return of Jason Bateman!

Moviefone: 'The Break-Up' Movie Trailer Premiere
Besides Vaughniston, this movie stars Jason Bateman as a therapist, I think. I would LOVE Jason to be my therapist..not my analrapist thought. I'm not into that. =)

I have a contract!

I got my contract today from my new boss. I'll be starting on March 1st! Yay! Actually, I'm going with her to a conference on Saturday in LA. We are flying down in the AM and then returning at night. I think it will be good to be at a conference surrounded by lots of successful docs. I think it will really make me feel like a doctor. The only thing is that she said I look really young (Shocker, right?) so I have to try to "old" myself up a bit. I'm going to go pants shopping this week which puts me in a little bit of a foul mood as I HATE shopping for pants. Girls, I know you feel my pain! Anyway, I'm getting whatever I can and I don't care about size. It just doesn't matter anymore. I can't have one more shopping trip be depressing because nothing fits properly. So I am throwing caution to the wind and buying pants pants willy nilly. =) Other than that, nothing else is going on. Tim and I had a nice time this weekend spending time together. Today Tim was actually off of work so he spent most of the day beating games on the XBox 360. Tomorrow I am going to see someone about my taxes because they are just too difficult to do them myself (I tried...) Wish me luck with the pants shopping!

Why I love Best Week Ever

YouTube - Tom Cruise on Oprah - As It Should've Been
This is hi-larious. I love video editing! In case you don't know...this is spliced video from Tom Cruise's interview and Oprah's bashing of fallen author James Frey.

Did you all see this?

As we all know I am addicted to the gossip. Here is the most recent scandal....I understand that Britney says she was escaping the popozao, but why didn't she give the kid to her bodyguard to put in the back child seat while she drove? I dunno. We shall see more as the story unfolds.

Finding a balance

Blogger has a scheduled outage at 9:00 so I'd better hurry with my post! =)
Today I met with the doc that I am going to be working with. She kinda changed the hours that I will be working so that made me nervous that I wasn't going to be able to continue with my other insurance job. However, I talked to my insurance boss and he said that it won't be a problem and they will figure something out. I feel much more relived now. You know when you have something weighing on your mind and you just want to get it resolved? I hate that feeling.
Tim is playing Call of Duty on the Xbox 360. It seriously sounds like WW3 is starting in here. I can be laying in bed and the bombing from the game practically shakes the walls. Crazy. The one good thing about our new pimpin sound system is that there is a "night" mode that scales back the volume for night-time. Ah technology, you are my saviour.
The Office is on tonight. If you are not watching it, you must start. We wouldn't want it to go the way of the AD. =(

Superbowl Sunday

Whassup peeps!
Today was a fun day. I had the gang over to watch the big game. I must say that I was proud of my grub as it was tastee! Especially the crescent rolls with cream cheese and bacon bits. YUM!
In other news, I got the job that I was hoping for. I am now going to be an associate doc at a nice practice in Sunnyvale. Yahoo! Things are starting to look up for me =)
Tomorrow Tim and I are going with my boss/good friend Todd to see the Sharks play the Calgary Flames. This is especially cool because Todd is from Calgary. I'm sure some good trash talking will ensue between the boys. I'm there mostly to yell obscenities and act a fool. I also like the fighting. I always hope someone will take of their skate and try to stab another player like Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. =)
Anyway, it's time to start cleaning up the house. There's not much to do but I'll feel better if it gets done tonight. There is nothing worse than getting up in the morning to a dirty sink full of dishes.

PS - Only 5 more days to the culmination of AD on that wretched Fox network. A special menu must be planned. I'm sure freezing of B-A-N-A-N-A-S dipped in choco will be in order!

Why I love American Idol

I'm so glad that American Idol is back in full swing. I'm one of those who only watches at the beginning to see all the crap people. They promise to be a good laugh and plus, I think Simon is cute. (I know, I know, Why I am always attracted to the smokey joes?) Anyway, I was excited initally as someone I actually know auditioned and got through to Hollywood. So I was waiting to see her audition tape as she said that Simon didn't like her.(However, those who watch will remember that Simon was very cranky in good ol San Fran!) Anyway, they didn't show her audition tape. They just showed her coming out and all her family around her celebrating. Turns out, if you get picked to go to Hollywood, you have to sign a massive contract that states that the producers of American Idol own you forever. You have to pay them back any money the spend on you and they can drop you at any time. In the end, my friend decided not to sign the contract and has moved to Nashville to try to break in to the biz there. Hmmmm....Well, I wish her all the best of luck.

In other news, I should be hearing from the doc I interviewed with by Friday. I just want to know either way what is going on. I need to move on with my life, you know? Anyway, I will post something as soon as I find out what is going on.

PS- I am still majorly addicted to and! I think I need help. =)

We have guns and mustaches! We don't need to explain ourselves.

Ok, so here are my two only good pictures from the SF sketchfest last night. Everything else turned out blurry because the lighting was so bad. Anyway, the pic above is of Rachel Dratch, Amy Pohler, and Horatio Sanz of SNL fame. They were pretty awesome. Lots of laughs were had!
However, here is the kick in the pants. The pic above is of Amy Pohler and her hubby Will Arnett. Now we all know how much Bianca and I LOVE AD and we were so excited to see Will, as GOB is the shiznit! Anyhoo, when Will came out we took loads of pics of him (no flash, mind you). Now somehow I missed this, but Tim and B said that Amy was giving us dirty looks for taking pics of her hubby. Bitch! What the deuce? Her husband is now famous and the star of a superb show. She was just jealous that so many people were there to see him.
Mind you, he talked a lot about all the drugs he did in ages past and she sat in the back and looked pissed the whole time, so who knows. Maybe she's just really uptight. By the by, the improv was really good. They were very funny and Will was definitely a hoot. He is super cute although his hair is too long and he is smokey McGee. I think that is how he stays so thin. He is so thin that it is amazing his Rolex Sub-Mariner watch stays on his bony wrist. (Hey Amy, my viewership of your show and your husband's show paid for that Rolex and all the luxury you live in. So I'm taking as many pictures of him as I want to) 'Nuff said!

Oprah's mouth is wide open

I'm watching this controversial Oprah where she confronts James Frey and his editor. She's so angry! However, I must say I like her new 'do with the straightness and the highlights! By the by, what is the big friggin deal? So what if he lied? It's a great book and is very entertaining. It doesn't matter if he embelished a little bit. It still is a book about overcoming adversity and has a positive message. I don't feel like I was lied to. Get a life, Oprah. Plus, this is just going to generate more press for his book. Bad press is still press! =) Stupid....

I've made a huge mistake- 3 days to go!

I am going to see GOB from Arrested Development on Friday and I'm so frickin excited. I can't wait to see him and his wifey (she is also v. v. funny). I've just ordered a shirt that says I've made a huge mistake and I can't wait for that to come in. There definitely needs to be more AD swag out there! =)
As Tim mentioned on his blog, the 360 is fully functioning. We played DOA last night and I must say that I am not bad for not having played in awhile. I play with a character who looks like me except for their saucy costumes. Maybe she brings me luck cause we look alike.
My parents have left Atlantis and are now in England. They are going to be there for two weeks. They were initally going to take care of my grandma, but she doesn't want their help, therefore they have decided to just hang out in England for 2 weeks. It'll be nice for them to get to see the rest of the family, plus they always have a good time being home.
Tonight I'm going to attempt to make a pasta dish with cream of mushroom soup. I'll let you know how it goes! =)

Movie Reviews

Today I watched 4, count them, 4 movies! I will give you my brief opinion and occassional rant.
First, I begin with War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise. I give it one thumb sideways (on the two thumbs up scale) I really dislike Tom Cruise now that he has gone all psycho, but I also really didn't like this movie. There is no explanation of so many things (unless you watch the behind the scenes section and then everyone explains what they were thinking). Hello? It makes no sense. Save yourself two hours and skip this one.
Then we went to see Underworld Evolution. As you are all aware, I love Kate Beckinsdale. Plus, I loved the first Underworld. This one was good if you are a fan of the series. They do a lot of backstory explaining and everything becomes clear. (Unlike War of the Worlds, Spielberg!) It's a pretty violent and gory movie, with loads of fake blood, but nothing I couldn't handle. However, we were walking out and there were a couple of kids in there with their parents! How inappropriate. Besides the extensive violence and gore, there was a super hot sex scene with Kate and Scott Speedman from Felicity. HOT HOT HOT! They showed almost everything....yikes! So yes, I really enjoyed this one.
Then Tim and I came home and watched The Hitchiker's Guide to the galaxy. It was totally weird but really funny and it has a couple of my favorite English actors in it. I think I gave it 3 stars. (Incidentally, check out my ratings now on Netflix. I went on a ratings tear today!)
Then finally, we watched Unbreakable by M. Night Shamalama ding dong. This was the first movie I have seen of his all the way through. I saw bits and pieces of Sixth Sense and never wanted to see Signs or the Village. Anyway, the movie was okay. I thought it was very creative and I can appreciate his talent, but it was a bit slow.
Overall, it was a crazy movie day. Tim and I are trying to bust through the Netflix cue a little more quickly as we usually are lazy about watching things and we are not using our membership to the fullest, I'm sure.
Tomorrow will be football, cleaning the house and napping. An ideal day for me really. Especially the napping part....zzzzzzzz....zzzzzz

Die Microsoft Die

Microsoft sent us the cord that goes from the wall to the power bar. However, no powerbar was included in this package. So now we have a cable, a 360 and no way to power it. Good job Microsoft. You are all a bunch of tools. Bravo on being totally useless.

News flash!

So the UPS guy didn't come to the door either but at least he delivered it to the front desk. So, I unpacked the box and we got another brand new 360. BUT....there is no damn power cord! I swear, that company is useless. Anyway, they are overnighting a power cord to us, but I'm not waiting around tomorrow because the UPS guy won't bother to come to the door anyway. Bitches....

Hello boys and girls

I am patiently awaiting the arrival of the XBox 360 via the UPS man. It seems as though XBox has started using UPS instead of DHL....Hmm...This is a good thing, as our local DHL driver is a lazy POS! On several occasions, he lied about trying to deliver something and then puts it down in the computer as "attempted to deliver." You lying sack of crap! I've been here all day waiting so unless you knocked as quiet as a mouse, you are a liar! Anyhoo, the UPS man always tries to deliver and is really nice, so hopefully it should be here any time. Yay!
I still haven't heard from the woman I interviewed with last week. I'll give her a few more days and then I'll get in touch with her. Fingers crossed STILL!
I'm excited because Underworld: Evolution comes out on Friday. I loved the first one and I love Kate Beckinsdale. She is number two on my hot girl list after Angelina, however, we all know that Angelina is falling in favor now that she is pregnant before getting hitched. The only bad thing about Kate is that she is too thin and that she smokes (like everyone, I know). But, alas, she is still a hottie!
Anyway, time to get cracking on my insurance work. As they say in England...Laters!

I'm a gossip addict

I am totally addicted to surfing the net for celebrity gossip. It has come to the point that I check these sites at least more than one time a day. The master and lord of all gossip is this bad boy. I swear, this boy doesn't work at all.
In other news, I went to observe at the office at which I am interviewing this morning. It was really nice, a very laid back place. I think that I would fit in there well.
My parents are going to Atlantis in the Bahamas for my dad's business meeting tomorrow. (i know, life is hard) They'll be there for a week and then they are going to England as my grandmother isn't doing too well. She needs to go into care, but she is so stubborn. But really, she can't take care of herself, even with her helper. I don't know how long they will be there, but I hope it's not too long. We just all got to be together again!
Tomorrow morning is going to be an exciting time, full of ironing and exercising. I've had a break from exercising for three days, so I need to get back into routine before I get lazy again. At least football will be on. I like Pittsburg, just purely for this guy. Try saying his last name in an aggressive way. It's makes you fired up!

Free at last!

So I gave my 60 days notice today at my office. They took it really well but tried everything to make me stay. I just had to stick to my guns and say thanks but no thanks for right now. I should be hearing from the woman I interviewed with by the end of the week. Fingers crossed peeps!
As a sidebar, Tim got a movie call Havoc from Netflix. It stars that girl Anne Hathaway from the princess diaries. Let me tell you....that movie is crazy. And the language? ROUGH! It's basically about really rich kids living in the Pacific Palisades area who want to be gang types. Tim and I had a good laff though because they are at this party and start singing Tupac songs. That is so Tim and I! It's like that part in Office Space when Michael Bolton is blasting ghetto rap in his car and singing along but then turns it down when a black guy walks by his window. Love it! Anyway, the point of this story is that this movie is all about sex, drugs, drinking and trying to be gang types with the rough kids in east LA. It's nuts. Tim mostly wanted it for the boobs, I think! =) I do recommend it though, as Anne Hathaway is outstanding as an actress. It's just a little odd after seeing the Princess Diaries and all. I am also looking forward to her starring as Andrea in The Devil Wears Prada movie. That should be a good one.
Alas, fatigue is setting in so I think it's time to go to bed and watch a little Family Guy. That's always a good way to end the day! As Stewie says: "I'm going to give you a quick vision test. What is this, a Toblerone or a Poopie?"

PS- What's up with my love Angelina getting preggers? My love for her wanes...

My mind is clear

This New Year has been the best for me. I have decided to leave my office that I work at and get another job. I'll still be a chiropractor, but I'm just not happy where I am. I really feel as though I was on the brink of depression for the past few months. I just hid it really well as neither Tim nor my mum and dad saw it for what it truly was. I was just forcing myself to believe something that wasn't true. Now that I've decided to change my life, it's like my mind has completely become clear. I've felt great everyday since last week when I made my decision. I've started exercising again. I'm eating well, sleeping well. What a difference this has all made. I think the thing for me now is to just keep up my resolve and not lose sight of my goals. I do feel as though this is not just a phase for me. Once my mind is set to something, it's on!

Comings and Goings

My dad's 60th birthday was on Monday. I'm glad that he had such a good time. It's hard to believe that your parent can be 60! I think this birthday will be the start of a really good year for him.

Then we get to the pictures of New Year's Eve. Crazy, crazy times! What a blast the four of us had. I'm really glad that we got to spend that time together. I look forward to many more New Year's Eve's together with Sarah and Steve.
What a great pic of the gang!

Our friend Jose...the main event for New Year's Eve. We did learn, courtesy of Scuba Steve how to take a shot properly. You breathe in, shoot it, then breathe out. No burning, no bleh feeling. He learned it from a drunk Russian. Figures.....=)

Can you tell that we had a good time New Year's Eve? I think you can almost see my tonsils.
So in conclusion, the year end and beginning were fantastic. Arrested Development was the best it has ever been on Monday. I really hope that all the begging will pay off. Tell your friends about this show....please?
This year will bring three weddings into my life. I'm excited to see all my friends get to experience the joy that I did. Plus, I love a good party. And who doesn't love free booze?! I'd like to raise a toast to this year. I wish everyone the love, success and happiness they deserve. We are a special group of people, living the best years of our lives. Never forget that...Love ya!
