hopefully i don't dash anyone's expectations here, but i didn't enjoy confessions of a shopaholic (the movie) in the least. now keep in mind, this is only my opinion, so if you've been dying to go see it, please do. you may love it! i was just let down because 1) the book was GREAT (all of them in the series were) and 2) the previews made it look so fabulous and funny. boo on that. i think i only laughed out loud once.

what a let down! at least the wings i had before the movie were good!

and more rants...

can i just say that i despise valentine's day? it's my least favorite holiday. i think it is a marketing ploy to get helpless men out into the retail world to buy things that they don't think to buy the other 364 days out of the year. i would rather get a card on a random, out of the blue day than a fru fru one on valentine's day. thankfully, jeff knows this. granted, he may not give me a real card on random days, but he has been known to write notes on papertowels that he gets out of the bathrooms at work. :) either way, if they're from him, they are priceless to me.

so here's to yet another book being better than the movie and to celebrating how much we love people all 365 days of the year, not just one.

friday randomosity

  • i am so tickled to have the afternoon today with NOTHING to do. is it sad that i am choosing to spend this free time cleaning (and am looking forward to it?) what has happened to me?!

  • the majority of my morning has been spent researching online how to get the little dog from putting her butt up in the weenie dog's face. i have explained to her that to be beautiful, you must ACT beautiful, but apparently she doesn't get it. If she is how she acts, then she is a dirty, dirty slut.

  • i just bought a driver on eBay. no, not a chauffeur, a golf driver.

  • 2 things have made me happy already today and i've only been awake for an hour: ray lamontagne is coming to town and they have confirmed that they will be coming out with a sequel to sex and the city. the day's lookin' up!

  • i am learning that one way i do NOT want to spend my hard-earned money is on lawyer fees. i also do not CHOOSE to have crappy neighbors, but of course, there's always one in the bunch.

  • if i hear about deck sizes and horsepowers much more, i am going to have a mini-meltdown. jeff has been researching commercial lawn mowers for going on a month now and seems that is the only thing he can talk about.

  • ireland is in the running for our next vacation.

  • i went to get a manicure yesterday and the first color i was drawn to, i absolutely loved. i got it, took it over to the wee man who does my nails, and plopped it down. i always turn it over to see what the name of it is (nail polishes have the coolest names!) and i am choosing to believe that it was mere coincidence that this polish i love soooo much is called "the wicked witch."

  • i am craving a trip to IKEA.

  • i am already ready to paint my office a different color. "snowfall" just isn't gettin' it. it is only a harsh reminder that we STILL haven't gotten any snowfall round these parts.

  • i was shocked to learn this week that kelly ripa only washes her hair every two days. i would look like someone dumped an oil vat on my head if i tried that!
happy friday to all!
