(Semi-)Private Showing

I knew I had to see it in the theater or I would regret it. I wasn't expecting much from the movie, but since my Donny was in it, I knew I had to go. If nothing else, it would just be fun to see him up there on the big screen, larger than life.

I went to the "matinee" this afternoon. Well, the 4:50 showing, but it is still at matinee prices. Yes! I really can't stand paying $8.00 for a movie. I got my $6.00 ticket and my $7.25 worth of popcorn and soda...geez....and made my way to theater number 5. I had the whole place to myself. Hmmm, where should I sit. I got as close to the middle as I could and made myself comfy. Soon, the previews started and just as they were wrapping walked two more people. Damn. Oh well.

I think Martin Lawrence is pretty funny. Raven - meh. Albert the pig was really great. And then there was my Donny....The part was perfect for him. I can't even imagine anyone else in the role.

So anyway, I was pleasantly surprised -- the movie was actually entertaining. I laughed. I oogled Donny. I ate popcorn. It's all good.

And another thing...going to a movie by myself....WAAAYYYYY out of my comfort zone. I did it. I lived. Go me.

Catch Up on C.B.S.*

Damn, I suck at blogging. It's not that I'm too busy to blog. Just been too boring lately.

I'm falling apart physically. I have been doing physical therapy for the last two weeks for tennis elbow. I visited my chiropractor today because my neck is all out of place. My right foot is killing me so I have it taped up. Might have to go visit my podiatrist too if this doesn't clear up soon. I'm on a big dose of Naproxen for the tennis elbow, so I'm just amazed that anything CAN hurt. GEEZ - I sound like an old lady.

I'm sure that a big part of my physical woes is the excess weight I carry around, but I also haven't been exercising AT ALL. grrrr. at me.

Last week, I went to see "To Kill a Mockingbird." Great movie - I had never seen it before. We have a local group, Cinema 100, that brings in movies that aren't normally shown in this tiny market we inhabit.

Still busy with school. Had to do a paper for the stupid on-line class last week that involved visiting and then writing about a culture you have never had any experience with. UMMMM, we live in North Dakota--- home of the white people ---- After much contemplation, I wrote about my experiences visiting Tb in jail. The names were changed to protect the not so innocent.
I got an A. Still have a sucky grade though because of my midterm test and a couple assignments I just couldn't figure out what to do. I hate this class with a passion.

My accounting class is at that wonderful point where we are doing a practice set. The trial balance is due tonight. I ran mine last night and was off a penny. I found it right away....just from rounding. I rock.

Things with Tb are going okay. Most of the time really good. For example: His glasses broke and he took care of getting contacts all by himself. But he still throws me a curveball every once in a while. For example: He just can't stay off the porn sites on my home computer. This after I had already put a block on all websites that are rated badly or not rated. He apologized and I removed that. Then last night..... ugh!!! Just gotta say this - you would think a 21 year old would know better. I guess seeing titties is more important than respecting my wishes. Last night, I set the computer up with a password. He will not be getting on it unless I am home. How many days til August?

Spring is still alluding us. Although the temperatures have been decent, we are still getting blasted with cold Canadian air.

Work has been weird. We are having heat pumps replaced in the building, so for one day last week, my cubicle was inaccessible. Damn. Had to take a vacation day. :o) Still trying to get everything put away. My desk was a mess and I am sick of that. Trying to get it organized all nice and neat. Very trying for me.

Other than that, missing Yan, knitting on Monday nights, sleeping and watching tv. Yeah, it's an exciting life......

Due to Under-whelming Demand...

I have returned!

I've just been busy busy busy lately. Nothing exciting, of course, but still damn busy.


Going well, made it mid-term. I got an A in my Management and Leadership class. It was a block class, so it's done. I have a C as a mid-term in my stupid on-line class that I absolutely HATE! I have no idea what my accounting mid-term is. But I'm sure it is fine. I'm all registered for Summer classes: Computerized Accounting (in person) and Spreadsheet Applications (on-line). And for fall classes: Income Tax & Accounting Information Systems (in person) and Business Law (on-line).

The Boy:

Tomorrow, the boy is sprung. He is coming home. I'm cautiously optimistic that he has learned his lesson and things will go well. We shall see.

His 21st birthday is on the 7th, so we are planning a Welcome Home/Birthday Party for the 6th. There will be cake.


Yan is moved. Yan has moved into her new apartment and she started her new job today. So far, so good. But I sure do miss her.


Still loving Six Feet Under. I'm almost done with Season 2. It's kickass!

The boy and I have been to several movies. Went to "21" this weekend, it was pretty good. A little slow in spots, but lots of math and numbers. I like math and numbers.

Last weekend we saw "Bank Job". Lots of titties in the first few scenes, so I told Tb that now I didn't have to take him to a strip club for his 21st birthday. It was a good movie and Miss C was right about wanting a thermic lance. I gotta get me one of those!!

Hating Big Brother 9. nuff said.


Still knitting every chance I get. It's way more fun than housework and homework. I am working on a hat and started some socks...third time is the charm. I've started two other times, but they were too big. This pair is a bit big, but they are wool and just might shrink.

That's all the crappy boring stuff I can come up with right now.
