Ok, so I'm not exactly into Sci-fi, but I'm totally into Vincent D'Onofrio. So, last night I decided to watch The Thirteenth Floor. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a really good movie. I might need to check out more "sci-fi-ish" movies.

Today on my lunch break, a couple of my friends and I went to Ulta, and then wandered into the fragrance section. A unique bottle caught my eye. Ok, the actual shape of the bottle isn't unique...it was the name on the bottle...KISS...the band KISS...Gene Simmon's KISS. My initial thought is that this perfume is probably going to smell like leather, body funk, and vodka. Suprisingly, it smells quite nice, a bit of florally, fruity bouquet. I sprayed on me...and I'm really digging it. Of course, I could never admit that I'm wearing a fragrance called KISS...maybe it might just have to be Kiss...with no mention of the rock band. :oops:

GRRRR...it is freaking cold. IT'S APRIL FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. The high today was only 60 degrees. Rain, rain go away...come again on Thanksgiving Day!!! I want my 90 degree at 10 a.m. weather. I'm sick of my winter clothes. I'm ready to break out the capri pants, open-toed shoes, and tank tops. I miss my good friend, the Sun.

I don't think I could make it north of the Mason Dixon line. I'm such a sissy when it comes to cold weather. I like it 'HOTHOTHOT.'

Ooo...48 degrees is the perfect temperature to start a marathon...race days are the only time I appreciate cold weather.

that it did...my basement is the only one dry and My aunt is still pumping. Peabody is a disaster and last I heard there were 6 deaths attributed to the storm.
It was a nasty bit of weather...but that didn't stop last years winner from taking the high honors again this year at the Boston Marathon..

The only ones who enjoyed our storm were the Canada geese, who found all the "pools" in our fields. Today, the sun shines as though it never happened. But the water is still there.

So, I'm getting ready to have another birthday. I don't take getting older very well. But to add insult to injury, I am getting emails from former high school classmates regarding our 10 year reunion. I'm not really sure that I want to go. It is being planner for September. So, basically I have four months to complete my life's ambitions. 1. Get to a smaller waist size than I was in high school 2. Convince some incredibly handsome and independently wealthy man to marry 3. Speed up the normal human gestation period to procreate 2.5 kids 4. Write and publish a wildly popular novel that will have me appearing on talk shows across the world, specifically the Today Show and Oprah.

Ok...ok...so I know this is widely fictitious form of what I would've like to have happened for my 10 year reunion, and I'm asking myself why do I even care? Despite not being wildly successful, I am still successful, by my standards. It's not like over the past 10 years I started caring about what the people I went to high school with thought. I guess this is just another reminder that I'm getting older. I know I shouldn't lament, because 28 isn't old. But sometimes it feels like it.

Gadzooks, BF, you make me chortle! I have a birthday this month too and I can double 28 and add another score or so.
X, don't mention "storm drains". I'm sick of them. :wink:

Actually, MLou, I think we share a birthday.

Ok...need to get something off of my chest. There is a "word" that people usually frequently in blogs that kind of annoys me, but I let it go because blogs are informal ways of communicating. However, I've run across this word recently in office emails and then in an office memorandum...and that's when I can't take it anymore. What's this word...prolly. Come on now folks...if you are going to send out a company wide email and expect it to be taken seriously...USE SPELLCHECK!!! I'm kind of sick of seeing that word...take the time to spell out "probably." Ok...I'm through with my rant. :D

:-D We all have things that set us off, bf. Mine is people who say "could care less", when it should be COULDN'T care less. If you say you could care less, it means that actually you DO care somewhat. I have several like that. Maybe we should start a thread!

My dad's pet peeve is "Eating your cake and having it too." He says it doesn't make any sense and it SHOULD be "have your cake and eat it too." Maybe there should be a thread of grammar pet peeves...it could get really interesting.

I TOTALLY agree. Of course, I'm the kind of person will sit there and look at it just to try and find a shred of sense about it. But nobody says "prolly" do they? Nobody I know. I really wonder how that even got started.

My pet peeve is the Sara Lee slogan. Drives me near insane. "Nobody Doesn't Like Sara Lee." WAY too many negatives used to get a positive end across.
