I had a dream last night that Jodie, Lori, Alex and Robz all came to my house for a visit. It was lovely.


We would have SO MUCH FUN!


Yes we would! *sob* I wish we had a way to make this happen.

This sentence makes no sense to me...


Uh yeah, me neither. No comprend-o.


So I liked the first one but then I heard
she gets pregnant, which really pisses me off. Plus I don't really like Peeta.
So I figured why continue?

I don't know why someone told you that. Perhaps that person didn't read the book? I think you should continue reading. The story is very good.

So the award for the most graceful move of the morning goes to . . . . . me! :oops: :oops: :oops:

I went for a walk with a couple of my work buddies to get coffee and on the way back as we were entering the building, the automatic door started to shut on me and when I jumped back I turned my ankle - the weak one that I broke in a car accident when I was 17 - it always rolls. :cry: So I went down in a most graceful not really heap landing with a thud outside of the main door to our office building with the security guards and other people I know as witnesses. :oops: :oops: :oops: But the good news is: I didn't spill a drop of my coffee. :roll: Now I'm sitting here waiting to see how big my ankle swells up. Sigh.

Thank god the coffee is ok! ;)

I'm sorry about your weak ankle. I have one, too and it tends to make life precarious. Have someone with sturdier ankles go out to get you a bag of peas so you can keep the swelling down!

Thanks for the concern ladies! And yes spilling the coffee would have added insult to injury. I just tested my ankle out on a little walk to the ladies room, and it wasn't too painful. I'm glad that I wore flat boots today instead of heels.

Alex - sorry you wiped out this morning, but hooray for saving the coffee! ;)

I am home today...I feel slightly like I have been hit by a bus. I went into the office early this morning and did a few things and then came home back to bed. Ugh.

Oh, and I am way more excited about the GG's this weekend than I should be. I need GG Rob. Badly.

I hope that you can get some rest and feel better. Stay in bed this weekend and let Mr. G take care of you.

I meant to mention that we won tickets to a screening of "Warm Bodies" last night at 7 pm. Since she saw previews somewhere, my 12 year old daughter was excited to go. It was cute and a likeable enough Teen Zombie Movie. Mr. A's reaction when I said I was taking her was "Better you than me. Good luck with that." But I didn't hate it. And she was thrilled to see a movie before it officially opens. The fact that she thought the zombie guy was cute helped, too. The ugly bad monster/zombie types were kind of scary and when she jumped out of her seat once, I leaned over and told her "You'd better not be so scared that you come into my room tonight. Be brave." (You may remember that she did indeed need someone to sleep with her after we saw The Woman in Black.) I am pleased to report that she slept just fine with no dreams of Zombie attacks.

That movie looked cute. And Nick Hoult with his enormous eyes and androgynous good looks is a good and non-threatening crush.

Yes he is. And she checked him out on IMDB and was so excited to announce: "HE'S BRITISH! What's not to like?" She loves her Brit Boys. (Just younger ones, thank goodness. Otherwise, that would be awkward. :roll: )

I see your daughter has good taste. And, last rumor I heard was that Nick was dating Jennifer Lawrence, so he has good taste, too!

I saw it a couple weeks back with a free screening. I really liked it.

I saw A Haunted House last night. (free screening) I did not enjoy it as much as the rest of the (98% african amercian) audience.

Next week I am going to see a screening of A Broken City with Russel Crowe and Mark Wahlberg.

This is the site I signed up for on to get all these tickets....

So not how I pictured Finnick.
But somehow, it works.


That was my reaction, too.

Also, congrats to JeLaw for her 2nd Oscar nomination!

MY QUEEN! I've been bragging about her nomination like a proud mama.

KayKay, I think I"m gonna dream tonight that you and I and Ron and Bobby and Andrew Lincoln are all playing scrabble and drinking beers and becoming lifelong "friends". And there will be snacks! And the snacks will be all that cool food I keep pinning on Pinterest.

So there!
