Lady really is singing the blues

I'm at home again. Seriously, don't need to be. I need to keep my remaining sick/vacation time but this morning I simply could not get myself motivated to leave my home. I was not mentally prepared to face the world today.

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.

For all the bloggers out there

I stumbled across this shirt from www.t-shirthumor.com and loved it.

Okay, somebody give the man his damn Oscar!

So I finally saw "Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind" last night and now I'm just highly pissed that Jim Carrey was SOOOO snubbed for an Oscar nod. I thought he was to die for. I thought he was brilliant before but now I'm....wow. That movie was so much more compelling and beautiful than many others that get recognized.

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

Let's hear it for Joss Whedon directing "Wonder Woman"!
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.

The Weekend is Here

Rejoice! Rejoice! Friday is here! Rejoice! Rejoice!

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

So it's 2pm and I haven't gotten shit accomplished today. Well I guess I can't say anything...I've downloaded all my favorite tv theme songs and several great 80's song (Lisa Lisa & the Cult Jam anyone?). What I meant to say was that I haven't accomplished any work. I seriously gotta get my ass in gear.

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

This link is just too funny to NOT share!

The Forum Blues

I'm a little bummed today. It seems my forum friends are arguing over what is proper conduct on the forum. Unfortunately I'm like the swing state. I hate to be wishy washy but I truly see valid points on each side. 1. I don't like the name calling. And when there is an argument going on in one thread I'm okay with it but I really dislike it when that argument starts spreading throughout the forum. 2. I don't like the "peacekeepers" of the forum telling others how they should or shouldn't behave. One of the attractions of this forum, for me, is that there are very few rules. We have always enjoyed being able to express ourselves completely.
So, why am I venting about it here rather than on the forum itself? I guess I just don't feel like getting involved.

Yep. I CHOSE To Marry Him

While on my way home from work last night my very non-romantic husband caught me by surprise by telephoning me simply to tell me he'd missed me that day and to hurry home. Feeling mushy I arrived home to the storm of my girls (that means my dogs came flying out to the driveway to greet me). I noticed that Lucy Lulu had a note sticking out from her collar. I thought, "Oh my goodness! Did my husband actually write me a little love note?" I eagerly removed it and read, "Please bring the trash can back from the curb."

I should've known better.

Avatar Whore

I truly have become an avatar whore. I can't stop downloading them! Of course my main obsession is for Buffy/Angel ones. (Damn! Does that mean I'm a "shipper" too?) I hit the motherload when I stumbled across From Dusk Til Dawn - an Angel appreciation site with
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

So, I decided to create a blog. Probably because everyone keeps telling me, "Blogs are waaaay better than diaries." The thing is though, I rarely update my diary.

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.
