Lady really is singing the blues
It has been a long, long time since I have felt like that. Coming from a family full of depressive addicts I take it very seriously. If I start to feel myself being pulled down I usually do something to counter-act it: watch a comedic movie, go look at houses, listen to Elvis, etc... But last night and today it hit me so suddenly. Totally blindsided me.
So, I thought I was in a situation. I didn't want to be in this situation- I was scared. Then last night I find out I'm not really in the situation. But instead of feeling relieved I felt dissappointed and then WHAMO! - sad. What's up with that? I didn't feel like talking to my husband, I didn't feel like watching tv. I just want to sleep. Now THAT frightens the shit out of me. Countless hours I watch my mother laying in a dark room huddled underneath blankets not having the spirit to pick herself up. I don't ever want to be like that.
I'm not saying I'm currently to that extreme. But I don't ever want to even start heading down that road. Maybe I should go hit that chocolate bunny from my easter basket.

Okay, somebody give the man his damn Oscar!
It made me laugh more than I had expected too. And for the very first time I really liked Kirsten Dunst's performance. I mean, I thought she was just okay in the Spiderman movies.
The chemistry between Jim & Kate was palpable. If you watch any of the special features you'll see more of that. The film really made me want to take a mind tour of my own (without the erasing). I loved the whole beginning when they are first meeting and Jim Carrey's reaction to her on the train. And I found the kid sequences to be very poignant. I loved Jim's line: "I want her to pick me up so bad. It's amazing how strong that desire is."
The one word that stands out to me when I think about it is "beautiful".

Good News & A Good Weekend
Now we'll be delighted with comic geeks debating for 2 years over who will be cast as the powerful lady and which weapons will make it into the film. Oh, don't take that the wrong way! I'm uberly excited about my favorite writer/director being at the helm of this movie.
What a pleasant weekend I had. Saturday was sloth day, which we handle like pros. I was successful at not accomplishing: laundry, cleaning the kitchen or dusting. Go me.
Sunday was then spent primarily at the Grandparents house. Spending time with them is important and usually enjoyable (unless Grandpa is all bad moody). My young cousins, Cristina & Madeline, were there and I had the joy of taking Cristina with me to the video store. She's a trip. NEVER stops talking and was asking for everything in the store while looking up at me with those huge adorable eyes and bouncing fro. She made a plea for a Coke by saying, "Crystal, I need this 'cause my back hurts." Little dear. So much to learn. So much to learn.
I bought "Harry Potter-POA" previewed for $13. Not a bad price for previewed. It worked well but I've yet to check out the special features disc. Not that I really care about them. They're usually just silly kids cdrom games. Such a good movie though. I really wish Daniel Radcliff would work on his "angry" acting though.
I rented "Seven" because Hubby hadn't seen it yet. I just couldn't let that go on any longer. He seemed to like it and was caught off-guard by the ending. But the Sloth guy didn't scare him. I couldn't believe it. He's like a rock I tell ya!
I also rented "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" but we haven't watched it yet. There's only so many hours in the day people! I'll recap later.

Just gotta show off one of my girls
The Weekend is Here
Man, oh man do I love my Friday nights. They just feel so good, ya know? We're going out to eat at a Mexican restaraunt (my favorite) with my Spanish class tonight. I'm sure I'll have a good time but I hope Hubby will. He's not always Mr. Sociable. I'm hoping I'll be able to persuade him into going to a movie afterwards. Lemony Snicket is playing at the $1.50 theater.
I feel like I have been neglecting my Buffy duties lately. I haven't watched any episodes in a while. What kind of fan am I?? I've even starting going a whole days without thinking about David Boreanaz. That just ain't right!

2pm and I'm talking to you
Thankfully my forum woes have been set aside for another day. It seems as though everyone has worked out their differences peacefully. I'm so pleased because the forum is my place. My place away from my husband. Not that I act any different than I normally do it's just that it is my group of friends and it's my personal space. Every relationship needs personal space, ya know what I mean?
CBS seriously pissed me off last night. What's up with the networks "special night" tricks? I missed Survivor damnit. And evidently it was pretty exciting. My favorite contestant got kicked off too! Aaargh!

Link of the Week
The Forum Blues
So, why am I venting about it here rather than on the forum itself? I guess I just don't feel like getting involved.

beaucoups of avatars. My current favorite is:
Aaah, such a pivotal moment in our favorite saga. Why, oh why did Joss not have Buffy come back for the end of Angel?? My theory is that Joss and Sarah just don't get along. But then I could just be putting WAY too much thought into it.
Thank goodness I have my avatar obsession now though because it is the boring television months of March & April when the studios are holding everything back from us for May sweeps. What's up with that? I don't understand the theory that by denying us our favorite shows that ratings will be great in May. In fact people get used to not watching the shows and then forget when they come back on. Seems risky. (C'mon NBC! I need my Scrubs!)
Oh well, I guess I'll go download some avatars to make myself feel better.

My First Entry
I love having a diary, I just find myself being overwhelmed by the task of having to sum up all my emotions in a few sentences.
At any rate, I am glad to be entering this strange new world of blogs. I will probably just copy over some of my old diary entries to get started.
I look forward to reading blogs and getting to know others.
