Movies I can’t wait to watch et al

One movie that tops that list is the next Bond film (Quantum of Solace). I just watched the trailer here (Quantum of Solace) and I am so ready for it to come out already. I already loved the Bond franchise and Craig just came and revitalized things. I fell in love with the soundtrack to Casino Royale’s soundtrack by Chris Cornell and I currently have the soundtrack! Yes, I’m cool like that. lol. For my musical needs, Amazon MP3 has proved to be the best way for me to feed my current music habit. I got the newest Pussycat Dolls CD (Doll Domination) and Fergie’s “The Dutchess” both for less than $3 and in mp3 format to boot! I can’t stand the iTunes music store which is in line with my disdain for a lot of things Apple (AAPL).

Things that I’ve been up to:

  1. Maggie’s sweet 16 birthday party: It took place last Monday and I wasn’t sure I would be able to make it. Thankfully, I asked for permission to leave and we were able to surprise the cute birthday girl. πŸ™‚ I had a lot of fun and danced my feet off! I finally learned the Macarena (shut up) and I fell in love with Katy Perry‘s song, “I Kissed a Girl”. So much so that I’ve bought her CD and I will see what she’s made of. That song in particular reminds me of Pink’s older music. In fact, since her party, I’ve become slightly obsessed with learning “group” dances like the macarena, the electric slide, thriller, et cetera. lol.
  2. Work: This goes without saying ‘cos it pays the bills. πŸ™‚ It’s getting progressively busier, but thus far, I think I’m staying on track. I’ll know what the deal is when we get to large animal anatomy. It promises to be super-busy then.
  3. Entertainment: I’ve officially become addicted to Hulu. I recently got into watching The Office and I am amazed that it took me this long to get into it. I simply love the show and one of Matt’s friend (JB) is a fellow Office fan so he’s going to lend me his season 1 DVDs. πŸ™‚ Sheer bliss.

Anyhow, that’s about it for now. Cheers!

A night of debauchery

Kidding. πŸ™‚ So, I typically veg out at home on Friday nights with my husband watching TruTV‘s Forensic Files or shows about Prison gangs on National Geographic Channel or the History Channel. You get the drift. So yesterday, a coworker of his invited him to check out his dance band (Seven 7) performing at Foxz Tavern. I haven’t danced in a long while so I jumped at the chance. I went there and I had a blast. Right away, I felt the vibe from the performers and they simply infected me. I went from dancing by my hubby’s side to actually dragging him to the dance floor! He was too cute doing his famous side-to-side booty dance (at least that’s what I think it is). πŸ˜€ The lead man was simply awesome (he’s got that rich R & B voice) and the guitarists got me doing my best air guitar impressions. They do covers and I loved nearly all of their covers save for a cover of Usher’s “Yeah” they did. Some songs do not translate well into covers so I’m sure they are constantly tweaking their play list to suit the audience.

If you didn’t know, I’ve had a post (an oldie but a goodie) way back in 2007 which has the song about the Electric Slide (Electric Boogie) attached. Well, you guessed it, they played that song. It was a pity I didn’t know how to do the electric slide. That has to be a thing all Americans seem to know how to do! Like a rite of passage or something. I am going to learn that slide and bust out my moves whenever I hear the song again. The tavern was laid back and I definitely see myself checking it out on Karaoke nights. I’ll have to have M in tow because I’ve got little alcohol tolerance. Two Miller Lite cans did me in last night although that wasn’t enough to let me sleep in. I hate that about myself. I’ll have to be really tired before I can do the sleeping-till-noon thing. I can fall asleep pretty easily, but M needs to prepare himself to fall asleep. He’s a light sleeper whereas I am a heavy sleeper. I guess it’s only fair that I am accursed to waking up early while he can keep sleeping on. *sigh* It’s all love though. I won’t hate on my man.

The countdown continues for Mrs. J. I hope I get the call when she’s experiencing. Hanging out with J & J is always fun. πŸ™‚ See, Mrs. J has a green thumb and she keeps us stocked with fresh-from-the-garden produce. Just the other day, we came away with a haul of string beans (not from her garden, but her neighbor’s whose garden is even bigger) and some humongous squash that would have cost us $5 at Wally world. She’s grown (and growing) herbs and spices & I’ve also benefited from having those too. I hope to have a garden also when M & I are ready to be homeowners. I’m the unofficial PC consultant even though I mostly stumble on the answers to their questions. Shhhhh. Google and smart searching are my best friends when it comes to PC issues. Well, I’ve got some news browsing to do. Have a great Saturday!
