If you look at my collection of icons as a whole...

You might think I was a little teeny-tiny bit obsessed with David Tennant.

*cough* Yeah...

If you are a fan of Robert Pattinson do not read this. I am not a fan. I also talk about Water for Elephants )

I apologize if I offended any of you with my non-Robert Pattinson liking.

Sooo... what else can I talk about today? Can you believe Lost is almost over? I kind of fell out of watching it for awhile last season but now I'm hooked again. There are still characters I wholeheartedly dislike, but I'm eager to see how everything is going to turn out.

Chuck is still fantastic and STILL my favorite show on TV right now. Followed in a very strong second position by Castle. I am so happy that chances are good for a renewal of Chuck. I will be heartbroken if they cancel it. Adam and Zac and Yvonne and even Josh brighten my week when there's a new episode of Chuck. I love that show. LOVE IT. I'm so happy that my coworker is back next week so I won't be missing the show live! I don't mind watching OnDemand but I spend the next day avoiding Twitter and FB in an effort to not spoil myself!

Another thing I'm excited about: Crash Test Dummies have a new album out today and they're touring in support! No dates near me yet, but Brad did mention on the blog that they were looking at possibly coming to Atlanta. AWESOMESAUCE. Oh. Didn't I mention? I love the Crash Test Dummies. It's an unnaturally sized love. I want to scoop Brad Roberts up and cover his head with furry purry kisses. (OK, seriously. What have I been smoking the past two days? Oh, yeah, I know - INSOMNIA.) Honestly though, they are awesome. Their songs are fun and sometimes deliciously dirty (Look up the lyrics to a later CTD song I Don't Care If You Don't Mind). Another of my faves that I've never seen live. Can't wait!

My new dishwasher is marvelous. It's an ivory goddess lording over my kitchen. I was so happy to come home last night knowing that I wouldn't have to be scrubbing dishes all night long. It was wonderful. Julia was a little dubious when I told her it was all I could talk about yesterday but Adam confirmed it. I am a sad, dishwasher having lady.

IT's coming up on that time again. Yes. You guessed it. Summer Reading is just around the corner. Days filled with screaming children and puppet shows. Magicians and snot. Wild animals and the scent of poo.

I Did mention that, right? About two months ago a kid pooped on the floor, in the library, RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DESK. Yes. It was disgusting. I just ... had to shake my head. His grandmother had just stuck him in the children's area while she went off to get on the computer. She came over to get him, saw the pile of poop, and just left with him in tow. Now, I didn't realize what was going on because my desk is rather high and I sit pretty low. I didn't realize until the smell hit me and someone came around the corner and commented on the poopy floor. I had just thought the kid had a dirty diaper. AND HOW.

UGH.

People are disgusting.

Anyway...

I've been having dreams about Top Gear. Probably haven't mentioned that I really like that show, have I? I haven't mentioned much of anything lately. I have no idea WHY I like that show, but I do. IT makes me giggle. I had a dream the other night that the hosts were all vampires. Richard Hammond and James May wanted to eat and kill me. Jeremy Clarkson thought I would make an excellent vampire and was trying to rescue me from being killed. Go figure. I've also been having loads of dreams about zombies. Two nights ago I was on a plane/boat/train that was full of zombies I was trying to escape from. No, really. It was a plane/boat/train. It had wings, it was on a track and in the water. Weirdness. It's no wonder I can now not sleep.

Two days and counting! WooHOOOOO! I'm hoping I'll get some sleep tonight but if it looks like I won't, I have some Tylenol PM to help.

I wonder if it's a day out of school or something. The library is suddenly teeming with kids and school hasn't been let out yet!

Well, I keep getting busier and busier and this entry has taken forever to write so I should probably go. Two days in a row though, WOOT! *hugs all around*

Have a great day!

Hi Guys!

Boy, it's been a long time! Last time I posted I had just gotten married. :) Things are still going very well, but I knew they would. We had been living together for nearly two years! Getting married just made things official. I mean, it was amazing! I'm so glad we did get married. But has it changed our relationship? No. Not really. Everyone keeps asking and seems surprised when we answer no.

I've been paying monthly for this journal and realize I really need to start writing in it. There's no reason to fork out money every month if I'm not. So. My New Years Resolution is for this year, to write more often. It's been my New Years Resolution for a couple of years but I think I can finally keep it now! I've been itching to write and so I will!

So! An update on lifey type things first. I'm married. Yay! But you knew that already. We are doing good. Right now the entire fam is suffering from some sort of sinus bug and that sucks but it's nothing bad! Adam went to the Doctor on Thursday who told him to keep taking the sinus meds he's been taking and he's finally getting over it. I started feeling bad Saturday night and so did Julia. I took today off and hopefully will be well enough to be back at work tomorrow.

Christmas was good. I still haven't received my Christmas present from Ad. He waited a bit too long and apparently it is supposed to be here today. So, if it's something awesome I'll probably be back here tomorrow to post about it and squee. :) EDITED: I wrote this last night but got to feeling bad and couldn't finish. So I now HAVE my Christmas present! It was a scent locket from BPAL Well, really, the Black Phoenix Trading Post. Which one, you might ask? The Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire! It is AWESOME. And BPAL is awesome too because I got FIVE Imps. The Ghost is glorious. I quite like Knave of Hearts as well. Highwayman and Night-Gaunt were not for me and the jury is still out on the last, Verdandi. But fun!!!

Speaking of Neil and squeeing -

Photobucket

I met Neil Gaiman again on December 14th. Unfortunately the girl who was sticking Post-Its on the books with our names misspelled Renee. So I became Ronee in both The Graveyard Book and Odd and the Frost Giants. That. Stinks. But really? It's ok. I got to say hello and Thank him again and it was lovely. I also met up with a really nice local girl who sat with me and we talked Neil while we were waiting. It was nice not to just sit there like a lump while waiting to get in line. :)

AND NOW - I get to talk about things that my family is just tired of hearing me talk about!

I finally saw Star Trek and it. Was. AWESOME. Holy crap. I so wish that I had been able to see it on the big screen. Love love love it.

Also, I am in love with Up. Ellie and Carl's story just... well it just about broke my heart. I watched it three times in one day (I showed it twice at the library and then made Adam watch it when I got home!) and cried every single time at a certain point in the film. It is beautiful. I have it on Blu-Ray now (cos we bought a Blu-Ray player during Black Friday! Woot!)

TV shmeevee. I'm still watching Heroes. Yes, I know. I know I'll be disppointed in how the show will turn out but I just can't give up Zachary Quinto every week. I really don't have much to comment on it except: I'll be overjoyed if they never bring Matt Parkman back. I love Greg Grunberg but I'm so sick of his character on that show. Of course, I felt the same about Mohinder last season.

Chuck is back next week and I. Can't. WAITTTTTTT!!! I love that show so very much. Also very excited about Lost's impending return!

Of course there's also Doctor Who Spoilers, probably, ahead )

Enough talk about Doctor Who! :)

Two people are out at work today and so I'm spending a buttload of time on desk so you may hear more from me today or this could be it. I hope you all had a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year. You'll be hearing more from me! Soon you'll be sick of me. :P

Hope you're all doing well! Much love! *hugs*
