Or you can watch said "Gregalogue" tonight/in the morning on Red Eye at 3:00 AM ET on Fox News Channel! Matt Iseman will be on...he's pretty damn funny.
Anyway, I have a lot of stuff to do tonight and figured I'd get that out of the way. You know that saying, "When it rains, it pours?" Well...I went to get a new tire today (remember the "apex of irony" moment involving DH, my flat tire, and a bagel shop on Friday?) and the guy tells me I really need four new tires...badly...as in they were going to make me sign a form saying they'd told me how bad they were before I drove out of there. That's not exactly something I was hoping to hear. The guy said and I quote, "I'd rather drive you home myself than let you drive out of here in that car." And though he was super sweet and cute in that whole "we probably went to high school together and I'm probably going to do tires at this place for the rest of my life" kind of way (and don't get me wrong, the job thing is cool if that's what he wants to do...geez, I'm not THAT shallow), the point is...I really hope he was just flirting 'cause I only got two new tires.
March 30, 2008
Wow, I feel old. I'm watching the Braves and the Nationals (I think Glavine's pitching the home opener, I was mistaken...they're milking it with the advertising) and they're talking about Chipper Jones being the veteran guy on the team. I remember when he was in the minors...that takes me back to a time when baseball was all that really mattered to me!
Anyway, guess who's back at my parents' house? As seems to be my Sunday ritual, I went over there to watch the race and the Memphis-Texas game (despite my crappy brackets, I still managed to pick three of the final four!). For some reason, we started talking about the puppy I found last week.
Long story short, around 4:30, I found myself in the car with my mom, driving to PetSmart. I kept thinking it was a really bad idea but once we got there and saw how miserable she was in the tiny cage and how her sweet, happy-go-lucky demeanor had turned very melancholy and weary...well...my mom adopted her.
So, she's at their house now (I just got home about an hour ago), and honestly, as stupid as it sounds, it felt like a little piece of the family was back in place. Once we got her home, she was the happiest little girl in the world! I know I've carried on about it but there was just something about this dog. And now she's home...
That's all I've got...I need to go figure out where to get new tires tomorrow! And go get a blanket, it's COLD!!!
"Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid.” - John Wayne
Just because I've been skipping out on quotes the past few days while I attend to real life and try to decide what I'm going to do with this thing now...
Now I'm going to go watch "The Darjeeling Limited!" Or maybe just go to bed. I really need an overnight job...soon enough.
I also need to quit sitting up half the night reading blogs that I've already read.
March 29, 2008
(Except the one light in my third bedroom/storage room and that's only 'cause the bulb blew and I can't figure out how to change it...the fixture doesn't seem to unscrew.)
Not really but come on...isn't the "earth hour" thing a little...elitist douchebag? If the libs were so the way they say they are, they'd be worried about people who are sitting in the dark because they can't afford their power bill...not the morons who are sitting in the dark because it's trendy!
I heard about it from some liberal DJ on one of my favorite radio stations, yesterday, and figured it was just some sort of extra holiday for hippies...
...but no. I can't even watch my 2:00 AM "Sanford and Son" last night without 5,000 commercials telling me what a bad person I am because I sometimes drink out of a bottle and use electricity.
March 28, 2008
Today was a day full of ironic moments...
I was going to type up the whole story but I shouldn't because it involves my day o' JD and well, that's supposed to be confidential. The apex of irony (apex of irony?) involved my flat tire, DH, and a bagel shop and what essentially amounts to the story of my life. But it's all good...I mean, I did get to witness "the presence" after all!
I don't have a quote again today -I know I was doing so well this month - but the GC said something that kind of made me laugh and I told him I'd use it as an honorary QOTD.
"You and I may be the only people in *insert town in which we live here* who judge people based on whether or not they use proper subject-verb agreement."
Now, I don't actually judge people based on that...if I did, I wouldn't have any friends! I'm kidding, I'm kidding, of all people, I have no room to judge people's grammar...but I was explaining to him how I cringed at some points while DH was talking.
On another note, now that JD is over, I can officially seek that job I've been thinking about for a couple of months. I'm told it will be available soon. I can't say it's something I've ever really thought I'd be doing, but the more I think about it, the more it seems like it might be kind of cool.
I have to say I hate to finish a book when I've become so emotionally attached to the characters. I think the book I just finished will now be placed on my list of favorites, even though I'm not sure I really liked the ending. The character development alone was AMAZING.
Anyway, so the moving thing...earlier this week, I made the comment to someone that I'm finally feeling settled here and would possibly like to extend my lease beyond June. I've been here three months and during those three months, life has been anything but smooth but I was finally beginning to feel like things were calming down.
Well, for some reason, a few nights ago, my cousin tells me to Google my address. I thought this was weird but I did it and there is my house listed for sale. My landlord is selling the place. It was nice of her to tell me! I did some research and read some horror stories from people in my situation. Agents and landlords coming in unannounced while people were sleeping, letting themselves in, etc.
So, I guess my days in my cute, "historic downtown" home are numbered. I honestly don't love it here anyway. There's a house up the road for rent but it's a few hundred more than I'm paying now (which is more than I can afford) and there's another house for rent, actually right across the street from where I may be working soon but my mother kindly reminded me it was the scene of a very gruesome murder a few years ago and I'm not sure I can handle that. Then again, a friend of mine in Penn. is looking for a roommate...it's not exactly where I imagined myself going but it's somewhere different.
Well, I had to get that out of my system! I have JD tomorrow, so I'm not even going to bother with a quote. With any luck, it's our last day...which is kind of bittersweet but I'll spare you my thoughts on that...
And if I owe you e-mail, I'll probably get to it tomorrow...I have lots to do tonight but I'm so sleepy!
And if you didn't see tonight's Lil Bush, check it out! I am probably the only person in the world who loves that show...

March 26, 2008
Actually the whole halftime report was funny as hell! (Watch it!) Oh well, time to go bug the Red Eye Recap Guy (check him out - he's awesome and a fellow ATL resident)! (I think I just barely missed the aforementioned Mr. Levy on the Live Desk!
Eh, I'll probably just go back to the flag, unlike Obama and his followers (yes followers), I do not care for change.
And yes I know I ask this as though it matters...I'm just (again) bored with the blog...I want to have a grown-up blog...
(And yes I just asked this in another post but I think had the wrong picture up!)
Oh well, who's freakin' excited about baseball? I mean, Glavine's back and it looks like he's going to be pitching opening day! If that's not exciting for us Braves fans, I don't know what is!
Oh well, Terence Moore: Mature Braves need no big talking has a good little column today as does Furman Bisher: Sayonara, baseball tradition. Personally, I'm not a fan of the Japan thing either...but I'm afraid MLB didn't call me for opinions.

March 23, 2008
I believe we're one trip to Hyde with Paris away from making the cover of US Weekly!!
And don't give me that "it's getting people interested" crap. Some people are best left uninformed.
I realize this is all pretty Obama-specific, but if we end up putting Hillary on "bump watch" I'm seceding...
March 22, 2008
No reason... I was told my blog was becoming a bit "emo." After I got the GC to explain what that means, I decided to lighten things up a bit. I know most of you probably think I'm nuts for going on about that puppy. Maybe this is the root cause of my commitment issues? Fear of getting too attached?
In other exciting news, I just broke one of my rules of being and joined a networking-type site. I had good reason though - I got some potential job info. Well, maybe that's not the ONLY reason I joined. And it's not like it's MySpace or anything even remotely similar (it's more career specific). And I refuse to plaster pictures of myself along with self-righteous "about me" blurbs all over the thing.
Oh well, I think I'll go bug the awesome Red Eye Recap guy...I don't think I've seen a show all week..I haven't even watched the little Levy Halftime Report vidoes on Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld - FOXNews.com! That makes me sad.
BTW - if you're into that sort of thing, "Happy Easter!"
Pearl of Wisdom: Everything is better when done to Gary Glitter's Rock & Roll, Pt. 2.
Ok, I lied, I do have a quote for the day, even though the day is over. I'm sort of over my little poor puppy pity party...I still feel like a heartless jerk, but there's nothing I can do about it right now.
So, I just watched "Magnolia" (finally - I've had it for over a month) and while I don't want to say anything about the movie (there's a part I'm not sure I got, I probably need to watch it again, plus I think I'm about eight years too late for reviews), I HAD to use that for a QOTD.
Why? 1) That scene exemplifies my biggest nightmare. 2) That's the first P.S.H. film I've seen where he was not the most vile part of it.
March 20, 2008
Yep. Mark Twain again...I believe this ties him with Andy Levy for the month. Anyway, I've spent the day plastering my phone number all over town, making calls, and sending out dozens of e-mails, trying to find a home for the aforementioned found puppy. I finally found a pretty reputable rescue group in Dallas (that in itself was a sign) who will be taking her tomorrow.
But I do feel guilty. The little thing doesn't have a friend in the world and now she has attached herself to me and I'm going to send her off to a strange place. Breaks my heart. I try not to get mushy about things but well...you know the dogs and soldiers rule.
Runner Up for QOTD: "Great, 'cause old veterans just love gay people!" - the GC when I pulled up to the American Legion and told him to go inside to see if anyone was missing a puppy.
Wow, I was just reading over what all I've posted in the past few days...that Obama post is a mess!
That's all I have to say, I have to go find a home for this puppy.
And I guess I'll add this...I seem to have a lot of people looking for info on last night's 3/19/08
Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.
Again, you can check any of these links and find lots of info about the show...names of guests, videos of segments, Gregalogues, etc:

March 19, 2008
With NC & Memphis battling it out for the top spot...NC taking it all.
I wanted to go with Memphis oh so badly, but I just couldn't do it. I guess Vanderbilt is my "upset." I've also got UGA making it through the first couple of rounds to go against Duke. (But I would so love to see them beat Duke!)
I've also got a little dog that no one wants.
Now, I gotta go work on finding a home for it...because I don't have 5,000 other things I need to be doing.
So, I'm not one that goes around picking up stray dogs, but I was pumping gas today and the weather is horrible. It was raining so hard, it hurt and it was extremely windy. I turned around and saw this little puppy trying her best to stand up and walk along the side of the road in the rain. She looked so miserable and scared. I made the mistake of saying, "Hey baby" and next thing I know she's jumping on me and before I know what's happening, I'm picking her up and putting her in my car. I know I've been talking about wanting a puppy but now is not exactly a good time.
So if anyone wants her...she's VERY sweet, maybe about three months old?
Very pretty. Adorable. And she smells good, specifically like lavender and chamomile.
She likes to watch TV. Especially Fox News...actually she seems more into recorded Red Eye than the regular news stuff so I'm guessing she has a sense of humor!
No really, I'll admit, I'd never in a million years vote for him but I could see why people were oragasmic. Well, I've been paying more attention lately and I think I've figured him out and I think I'd almost rather have Hillary (it took me about three minutes to actually type out "I'd almost rather have Hillary").
And this isn't because of the Wright stuff that has been plaguing the news (though I find that man to be extremely disgusting and vile). This has to do with me doing what so many people fail to do and actually thinking about what he says. If nothing else...I worry about the identity of our country as a superpower with an Obama as president, if that makes sense. I don't have time to say much more but I think that's easy to figure out.
And on a side note, I love how he says he doesn't want to play political games yet he can't seem to mention John McCain without mentioning George Bush in the same breath.
Elitist Douchebag Alert: *link coming later...about "climate change" tax*
And on another note: This is a must read...Sean Penn is an idiot (I know that's so original but it's all I could think when I read this): It's a wrap - 'Milk' filming ends in S.F.
FYI: I have a "Sean Penn goes to Iraq" impression that is a must-see.
[Update 9:33 PM] I was just looking to see who's going to be on Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld tonight and check this out: tonight's Gregalogue is about how...well, how Sean Penn is an idiot. Click that link or watch it at 3:oo AM ET on Fox News Channel!
March 18, 2008
Just glancing at those comments and various others I've heard, seriously, after this weekend, what on earth does it take for people to get excited about Georgia basketball? I would love to go! Then again, I've been dying to go to a basketball game all year anyway.
But isn't this the cutest picture you've ever seen? (totally stolen from ajc.com)
Oh well, I'm off to work on my brackets. By the end of the month, I'll have that, the nascar stuff, and fantasy baseball going!
Isn't that exciting?
And while on the subject of sports, looks like DeAngelo Hall is finally getting his wish. I say good riddance. (Check out my recap of DeAngelo's career here: Swing Me Way Down South:
Cute DeAngelo, Roddy Falcons Nightmare...)
God, I need a job!

"It's spring fever...you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" - Mark Twain
I know it's kind of um...but that pretty much sums me up right about now in all aspects of life! I was actually looking for something more about spring but that caught my attention (and I've given up on not quoting the same person in the same week). Anyway, it's a gorgeous day here in the ATL after a weekend or horrible weather. I love this time of year. I'm not really an outdoorsy type but I must confess I stopped at a garden shop today and contemplated buying some flowers. I want to plant something. Then again, I also want to go to the beach. Anyway, I'll spare you more of my list of things I'd like to do...we could be here all day.
Here's my runner up for QOTD: "In the entertainment industry, developing a conservative streak is akin to leprosy of the mind." - Greg Gutfeld from today's Gregalogue. Oh! Will Leitch will be on Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld, tonight! I enjoy him! Watch it!
I seriously just realized it's St. Patrick's Day...and I only realized that because I glanced up at my TV and saw Hillary in this GODAWFUL scarf. I guess she's going for the Irish vote. Or perhaps the tacky old broad vote.
March 16, 2008
Okay, I don't have much else to say, so I'll get to the quotes...I really didn't have anything special set aside other than the South Park one, so once again, I just went with some old standbys from some of my favorite things and favorite people!
QOTD - 3/12/08 - "Nobody likes Jimmy Buffett except for frat boys and alcoholic chicks from the South!" - Eric Cartman (This made me laugh for so many reasons...good times, good times.)
QOTD - 3/13/08 - “Welcome to New York, now go the f!%k home.” - Johnny Cash (I'm not 100% positive what that's from but it sounded good)
QOTD - 3/14/08 - "When women smile at me I don't know what it means. Sometimes I interpret it like they're psychotic or something. And I don't know if I'm supposed to smile back. I don't know what to do." - George Costanza (Come on, George is one of the best TV characters ever...)
QOTD - 3/15/08 - "I don't know how I can face the future with eight quarts of those pickles in it." - Barney Fife (another one of the greatest characters ever...I think everyone knows my Andy Griffith obsession)
QOTD - 3/16/08 - "Was it in Matthew or Luke that Jesus said 'God damn America?' Must be the gospel of Kos." - Andy Levy on Friday night/Saturday morning's Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld (I don't think I need to explain this one either, but this was in response to Obama saying, "Reverend Wright preached the gospel of Jesus, a gospel on which I base my life."
QOTD - 3/17/08 - "First-story people, they don't question everything, and they don't look into the subtext of everything all the time, and they just stay on the narrative line, and it's a pretty linear way of thinking, and they're not constantly fraught with self-doubt and neuroses, and they're pretty content people. Those people might have had a [expletive] childhood, but they don't know it. Probably not very many writers and actors are first-story people.” - Amanda Peet (Okay - I don't really have feelings about Amanda Peet either way - aside from thinking she has the cutest baby ever - but in this quote, she was quoting Matthew Perry. And as you may or may not know, I do like Matty P. And I liked that quote...it's almost like my people who do and don't get it thing...only different!)
I'm too tired to proofread or spellcheck (like I ever do anyway) so deal with it!
Update 3/16: Quick question - for any of you who may have seen No Country For Old Men...will it scare me? (In other words, should I watch it alone?)
March 14, 2008
Anyway, it totally reminded me why I started watching Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld and decided to whore out my blog in hopes that some unfortunately uninformed soul would run across it and check out the show and so on. So at the risk of sounding like a broken record and/or an insane person (who am I kidding, I gave up on that months ago), if you do nothing else with your life, you should do yourself a huge favor and totally watch Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld at 3:00 AM ET on the Fox News Channel!
And I know I just posted these links like two posts ago, but I think they are well-worth posting again. So check out the following Red Eye related sites:
The Daily Gut
Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld
The Activity Pit
YouTube - RedEyeRecap's Channel
And Gutfeld has a new book: Amazon.co.uk: Lessons from the Land of Pork Scratchings: A Miserable Yank Discovers the Secret of Happiness in Britain that you should probably check out.
(I haven't had a chance to get it, but it looks really good from excerpts I've read and reading a lot of his older writing from various sources is what turned me from girl who watches Red Eye for five minutes at 3:30 AM because Andy Levy is awesome to girl who watches the whole show when she can, brings it up in every day conversation with random people, and freaks out when when she wakes up on days like today and realize she recorded the wrong channel last night.)
Wow, that was exhausting. I think I need some curly fries. And if you care, I know I'm behind on quotes and non-Red Eye posting but I've been busy and/or not home just about every night this week but I'll get to it, probably tomorrow...because I have to go to a party tonight, because that's what cool people do...they go to parties. And they mention it as much as possible so they sound even cooler.
March 10, 2008
No, I haven't caught Obamania or whatever, I just think that's the smartest thing I've heard him say. Plus I'm trying to get ahead with these quotes! I think I'm caught up now.
Now I'm off to figure out how to set up this stupid wireless router...
[edited 12:47 AM] I may very well be the biggest idiot on the face of the earth.
Let's just say I just met the guy next door...finally...in our front yard. (Note the time.) Only I still haven't actually spoken to him. I won't tell the whole story, I'm not even sure what happened myself.
Now, the question is, do I go over there tomorrow, knock, introduce myself and apologize for my total lack of communication skills and for occasionally, I don't know, playing Andy Griffith and Hannity and Colmes too loudly at night?
The GC (who, by the way, is my cousin - someone asked) and I went back to the big state park again, today. Remember that big blue blob of a picture I took last week? I decided to try for the daylight version...still not great - I need to get an actual camera vs. my phone. Either way, it's absolutely gorgeous...
Anyway, we went for a two-three mile hike and when I say "hike" I literally mean it. We went off the main path and it was a bit exhausting but fun. Gabby got in a few swims. Because I've turned into someones grandmother with the picture taking, a few more:
I took more but they didn't really turn out too well...everything's still kind of drought and wintry looking anyway. But yeah, it's been kind of a lazy day like that so that's all I've got!
March 09, 2008
The post below is why I should not be allowed to do things before noon. Just ignore my rambling! Anywho (or is it anyhoo? I can never get that right), I promised to catch up on QOTD, but first I have a few comments to make:
1. Pres. McCain - Everyone's making a big deal about this and maybe I just don't get it but don't we want a president who's kind of an asshole? I mean, I do...and I don't mean in the self-serving, whiny, arrogant way like Hillary, I mean in a no-nonsense, take no crap, "tear down this wall" kind of way. That's like the first thing I look for in a presidential candidate. If he can't even stand up to the press... Hillary and Obama won't even debate on Fox News!
2. John Mayer - I'm not going to bother linking, use your Google if you live under a rock but why the hell does everyone care about something stupid that John Mayer wrote on his blog about some girl? I mean, I can understand it making a few gossip sites, but I saw this crap on the news and my AOL welcome screen!! Everyone's freaking, "Who could he be talking about?" WHO CARES? Come on, it's John Mayer! Is this going to be the "You're So Vain" of my generation? Cause if it is, I feel ripped off.
Now that I got that off my chest, QOTD for the days I missed! (Sorry - these probably aren't the most exciting in the world but once again (SIGH), I'm not feeling so hot - hopefully just too much cooking out and race-watching goodness - so I just kind of grabbed some good stuff from some cool people!)
Quote of the Day 3/7/08 - "...a hypocritical environmentalist. That never happens!" - Andy Levy (from Friday night's halftime report on Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld)
Quote of the Day 3/8/08 - "I don't do T & A very well because I haven't got much of either!" - Lucille Ball
Quote of the Day 3/9/08 - "Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.” - Ronald Reagan
Well, that's all - hope y'all had a great weekend!
March 08, 2008
- taking an acting class...can't...let...it...go
- applying for the job I was going to apply for last week but chickened out...so not what I want to do but pays well for time being.
- moving. I want to move somewhere different for a while. I mean like...I don't know, Los Angeles...just for a while. But do people just up and move to Los Angeles for no reason? Hmmmm...
- whether I should bother moving because when I do the news thing, if I ever bring myself to do the news thing, I'll probably have to move anyway.
- when I should do the news thing. It was going to be my summer project. I can't keep putting it off.
- whether I should put on a different shirt. It's 32 degrees and snowing after last night's 70 and tornadoes
- if I took my medicine already...I've only been up an hour and I honestly can't remember. It's a good thing I don't have some horrible disease that requires constant attention...I can't make it through a 10 day sinus prescription.
- whether I should watch Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld anymore. (I'm kidding, just watching recorded version now and the cat jokes are back...ugh. Maybe I just don't get it.)
- whether I should continue to work Red Eye into every other post I make. Does it matter?
- what the bloody hell is taking the person I'm waiting for so long?
- what prompted me to make this lame-ass post?
- what sort of excuse can I come up with to get out of going to a party Friday night (I'm KIDDING for those of you who may be offended)
- whether I should allow people to post comments again...
- whether I should do twice the workout today since I didn't workout at all yesterday.
- whether I should quit talking about working out so much.
- no, I don't think I did take my medicine.
- if the shirt I just changed into has been washed recently.
Oh, gotta go! I got stuff to do today and I won't be home tomorrow but tomorrow night or Monday I'll catch up with a QOTD for each day missed...believe it or not, some of you seem to enjoy that sort of thing.
At least I didn't drive through it this time, I guess. Nothing really happened on my street but from what I understand the roof was ripped off a local grocery store among other things. (My cousin and her family were actually there when it happened. Her story is actually a lot more interesting than mine.)
Anyway, my point to all of this is, I have no quote for today. I've been trying to come up with something new or different to blog about, but it just isn't happening. I don't know....I miss writing with purpose...I've had a few ideas but they're either really dumb, possibly illegal, or too time consuming.
edited 3/8/08: I decided to go drive around and play voyeur but there wasn't much to see. They've already done a lot of work ... I had my phone all poised and ready to take pictures! This is all I got...if you squint and turn your head to the side, you can kind of make out the caution tape...
March 06, 2008
As most of you know, some of you from experience, when I try to cook, the results could often be considered disastrous. [Story deleted, it was boring even to me - just know I still can't cook]
Wasn't that fascinating? I'm actually sitting here, putting off working out. I've been doing that since about 7:30. In the meantime I've watched half of American Idol (the Aussie guy from Atl is kinda hot), watched half of last night's Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld (yay! it appears the halftime report cat jokes are gone!), downloaded a bunch of Allman Brothers and Van Morrison stuff to iTunes, and looked for a QOTD.
Let's do this! Don't tell anyone, but I'm actually borderline excited about McCain and have been for a while. Heck, I've been having dreams (yes dreamS) about campaigning for him. Perhaps it's odd that I dream about campaigning for people in the first place. Anyway, it's hard to explain...
Oh well, that's all...I realize I'm a day behind...I almost forgot to post tonight. I'll do two tomorrow or something!
March 04, 2008
Don't bother asking why I chose it...not gonna tell ya!! Sometimes it's just time to move on...
Just pretend it was meant to be about Hillary. I tried to watch a little "news" yesterday morning and I literally had to turn off my TV when she was speaking. Throw in my suffering through her close shot from her little bit on the Daily Show last night and I just can't take four years of that. And by "that," I mean any number of things from her nagging, bitchy way of speaking to how desperate and transparent she is. I have a hard time believing anyone in the real world actually wants her to be president for any legitimate reason. (Female and wife of Bill are not legitimate reasons!)
And as someone who's 95% Republican and 99% for McCain at this point (and has never in any way been a Huckabee supporter), I have major issues with the amount of pressure on Huckabee to drop out of the race. Maybe I'm naive, but isn't that kind of going against what this country is supposed to be about?
Then again, I still have a Fred 08 sticker on my car so what do I know?
edited 5:31 PM - I forgot - as always, when I mention the Daily Show, I like to say you should totally check out Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld weekdays at 3:00 AM ET on Fox News Channel.
Yeah, I know I just used him two days ago, but I didn't really have anything for today and the GC was watching my recorded Red Eye from last week and said, "That's so funny, you should use it for your quote of the day." So there ya go.
Check out this picture, can you tell what it is?
I didn't think so. The aforementioned GC and I set out to go see "There Will Be Blood," this afternoon. For some reason, we didn't bother checking to see if it was still at the theater and well...it wasn't. So, we ended up going to dinner and after that, we "cranked up" some "classic rock" and went for a drive.
Somehow, we ended up at the big state park in our county, which is one of my favorite places...it was dusky dark, but the way the river was moving with the wind against the backdrop of the woods was the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while. Anyway, to the point: I decided I wanted to savor the view, maybe post some pictures on the blog, so I grabbed my phone and snapped a few...the result, the blue rectangle you see above! Just know that it was nice.
I did finally get the new bedroom TV set up, today!! I'm assuming there's not a new Red Eye, so that kind of sucks, but I'm sure I'll find some way to put it to good use, tonight.

Reason? I could apply this to so many things lately but it just seemed kind of perfect after I screamed, "Oh my God, his steering wheel even fell off," after Jeff Gordon wrecked today. As it would turn out, the steering wheel is SUPPOSED to come off. Who knew? At least I wasn't the female in the room who said sadly, "And he has a new baby too" as if the man had died.
As mentioned in my last post, I had to go to a cookout today and as usual, the race was front and center. Anyway, I still can't figure out how to pick fantasy people...today's choices (Kinseth, Martin, and Johnson) were worse than last week's, but I'm two for two on predicting deaths and injuries. (I'll spare you the Earnhardt story, I know you'll all just groan and say I've heard this a million times.) Anyway, I'm not going to post about this every week, don't worry, but I knew once we started "playing" fantasy, it'd become more than Sunday afternoon background noise as it has been for as long as I can remember.
Oh well, I guess I'm going to go apply for that job tomorrow. Or at least call to see what I need to do to apply. Maybe next week I'll actually apply...I'm kidding, I'm just so nervous.

Reason? See last post about Red Eye quotes. I realized I'd actually done a few Gutfeld ones this month, so I went with a Levy! And since I've been slacking on updates and quotes for the past few weeks, here's a runner up:
"Remember that movie 'The Fly,' the one with Jeff Goldblum? Tilda Swinton is what happened when Jodie Foster went through the teleporter..." (I believe there was another little bit to this but I couldn't hear it over the laughter...) - Andy Levy
These are both from Monday night's Halftime Report. Which was pretty hot. Very hot. (I was originally going to compare it to the second day of JD, for those of you who know that story.) You're missing out if you're not watching!
Okay - I've fulfilled my posting quota for the weekend! I'll try to get back to updating more regularly this week. I hope everyone's having a great weekend...mine has been pretty uneventful aside from the fact that I finally bought a TV for my bedroom this morning and have to go to a cookout tomorrow (it's so springy here!). TV is tiny but it'll work until I can afford a nicer one and hopefully, I'll be able to sleep now! (If not, I'm going to make the audio version of my blog...I could so market it as a sleep aid.)
Ha - they mentioned Chick Fil A on SNL!! (I am easily amused.)
I really can't believe it's March 1st already...you know what that means don't ya?? Only 64 more shopping days until my birthday!!! I'm kidding, I'm kidding...but really, February has been a blur.
So as mentioned in my last post, I've been torturing myself, wondering whether or not I should go apply for that job next week, right? Well, I think I've decided to do it. (No more opinions, if you can't see me doing it, just keep your mouth shut!) I'm going to call on Monday and find out what I need to do to apply. I'm nervous just thinking about it...I'm so easily intimidated.
Now, this doesn't mean I want to do it for the rest of my life! As a matter of fact, I just saw the most awesome reporter in the world, who's political coverage has been great, and that always serves as a little inspirational reminder that I do actually have bigger, better plans (hopefully) for later this year.
Speaking of FNC, as mentioned in my last post, I sat down around 12:30 last night to catch up on recorded Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld and then watch the new one. I guess it was going to be a Red Eye marathon or something. Anyway, I was trying to figure out where I'd left off and with what episode and the next thing I know, it's several hours later. I actually fell asleep between hitting "play" on my remote and the actual image coming on my television. Besides my 80-something year old grandfather, WHO DOES THAT!?!?
My point to all of this is...oh yeah, I didn't realize the show was coming on weekend nights (mornings?) at 2:00 AM. Just pointing that out.
Hmm, I've also been getting a lot of people looking for Greg Gutfeld and Andy Levy quotes (geez, I wonder why???) and I was trying to do some every so often but I forget and so I think I'm going to figure out something like that for my March 1st quote.
So, to sum up long, extremely boring post: I'll be 27 in May, I'm going to apply for a job that scares the hell out of me on Monday, I was tired last night, and no matter which way I play it, I am still way too into the Red Eye thing!! (I actually thought I had better stuff to say but once again, I finally sit down to do it and I'm at a loss!)
Oh wait, I do have something else to say - if I may brag. Remember a few weeks ago when I complained that the owner/editor of a website I visit frequently (that is NOT political in any way) and that I have written a few things for decided to suddenly, randomly, and baselessly support Obama. I probably lost my chance of ever writing for them in the future, but I had to post a comment or two. I thought they were pretty smart, if I do say so myself. Anyway, I just went to check my g-mail account (which I rarely use and check maybe once a month, but used to post at that site) and as it would turn out, I got e-mails about that! They were all nice and supportive and, "Thanks, you said what I was thinking but didn't know how to say" kind of things. I don't know, it was just kind of cool.
Off to find a QOTD!
