Sex and the City 2 was really, really disappointing. I miss my girls? They? Were not my girls. Not at all. It felt rushed, silly, misguided. There was no emotion. Even Aidan couldn't save it for me.

Just put my (fake) Christmas tree up. I hardly decorated last year and it was sad, so I stole Adam's fake tree cuz Ted likes to get a real one. It's big, and awesome, and I have colorful decorations and it is going to look awesome when it's done. Alas, I need more lights, so I can't put the bulbs on until I can hit Target again.

Here's hoping the cats don't destroy it.

The best part of my tree is that I have Yoda at the top as my guardian angel!! Oh yes. He even has a light saber that lights up. I win at Christmas.

I bought Tori's Christmas album, Midwinter Graces, but haven't given it a listen yet. Except for Pink and Glitter, which rules. I saw 2012 on Monday and it was AWESOME. I love disaster movies. I also bought Star Trek on blu ray because it is also awesome. I had some nice days off, doing some thinking. My head is a weird place right now.

Almost time to head to the doc to find out what we do about my fibroids. Cross your fingers that that's all it is!

Saw Harry Potter today and LOVED IT OMG SO MUCH. I am going through a bit of an HP renaissance, I just bought Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix on blu-ray, and am currently in the middle of rereading Half Blood Prince.

The movie was definitely the best one yet, there was a great balance between then comedy bits and the plot points and the scary stuff. And OMG that ending...just took my breath away. I know as I reread I will find things that I wish they'd kept in, but of the parts they did change, I felt they all worked in the text of the film.

Definitely going to see it again!

Can I just say that I hate today?

I'm 99% sure someone stole my iPod out of my bag at work. When I was getting ready for the beach today, I pulled out the iPod case and my headphones, but no iPod. I know I had it Saturday night because I was listening to it at work, and it was in my bag because I was going to go to the gym on Sunday.

This is now the second iPod that has been stolen from me at work. This is ridiculous. I want lockers that I can put a lock on, or I am going to be carrying my cash, iPod and Blackberry with me at all times, I don't care about the rules. I told my GM and she was apologized but there isn't really anything she can do. Well, there is something she can do, and if she does nothing, I am going to call corporate. Apparently I'm not the only one who has had stuff stolen, there's been cash, sunglasses, etc., all reported and nothing done. It stops now.

I am so mad I could scream. I'd been meaning to back up my iPod for months too, and had I done it yet? Of course not. I don't think I lost much music because I store it all on my external hard drive, but I did definitely lose some songs and that pisses me off even more. Adam gave me his iPod Touch because he hasn't used it since getting his iPhone, which was awesome of him because I didn't really want to shell out another $300 for a new one.

I hate everything right now.

Oh, and also, the cat peed on the couch AGAIN, and I hope it was Felicia and not Abby. I have pretty much made up my mind to give her away, I can't do this anymore. I have tried for two years, she just won't pee in the litter no matter what I do. I am so over it. I feel bad but hopefully someone can give her a good home because I am at my wits end.

To make myself feel better, Adam and I stuffed ourselves with burgers and shakes, and then I went to see The Proposal which I really liked. I love Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, the story was kind of weak but whatever, I didn't go for a grand sweeping love story. I got what I paid for and I was happy.

I think I'm just going to go to bed so today can stop sucking so much.

Adam and I saw Wolverine tonight. I was surprised that it was actually decent. After the disaster that was X3, my hopes were not high. But I enjoyed most of it (except for the special effects in the bathroom scene, ZOMG so bad) even if the movie stalled out in the last 20 minutes. Hugh Jackman can run around my house naked any time he wants. I will buy snacks.

Oh I love summer movie season. I am so easy: give me shit getting blown up and some cheesy one-liners and I am a happy girl. I have high hopes, between Terminator Salvation, Transformers 2, GI Joe. Let's fuck shit up!

I have to fold laundry and go to bed because I have work in the morning but I don't wanna. Maybe I will read some Sandman, even though it always gives me fucked up dreams. I am reading Book 4: Season of Mist, and it is just so good. Neil Gaiman is my hero.

I feel weird cursing in my own journal. I felt weird doing so on Facebook before as well. I think it's because my mom is on there now. I am an adult, I can have a potty mouth if I want. Seriously, what is wrong with me. Ugh.

Watched Gladiator when I got home from the movies. Love that movie so hard. It reminds me of my dad, he always quotes it.

Star Trek Thursday! Two movies in one week? Unheard of for me.

Why do I want to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past? I suck sometimes.

Things I am currently obsessed with:

__tea tree oil. Seriously. I can't get enough of the tea tree oil smell. I rub it on my chest and arms every night before I go to bed so I can fall asleep smelling it. MMMM it's so delicious.

__Lady Gaga. Don't ask me why. Poker Face is awesome. Acoustic Poker Face, with just Gaga on the piano, is brilliant. Stop looking at me like that, it IS. Go to YouTube and see for yourself. I want to take a ride on your disco stick. FUCK YEAH.

__my body. Not in a good way. I let myself go a little after being so good about eating well and working out. I'm slowly getting back to where I want to be but it's a process.

__spring. How come on my days off it isn't sunny and 80? I get 50 and rain. Over it.

__the perfect dress for Stacy's wedding. It's out there. I must find it.

__summer movie previews. Terminator Salvation looks AWESOME. Transformers 2 looks decent. Star Trek looks sick. Harry Potter makes me giddy. GI Joe looks pretty awesome. Public Enemies looks fan-frakkking-tastic. Give me stuff that gets blown up and I am happy.

__Neil Gaiman. I am simultaneously Sandman Vol. 4 and Fragile Things. He is just brilliant.

__pop music. Somebody stop me.

__Starbuck and Apollo. What else is new? Oh PILOTS. You can frak on a table anytime.

I won't spoil it for you guys, but I will say this: The Dark Knight is one of the best movies I've seen in a very long time.

Iron Man is MADE OF WIN.

Just awesome. Incredible. Best comic book movie ever (sorry, Batman Begins). I was riveted for two hours. It had everything I could have possibly wanted, and I don't read the comics so I guess that wasn't hard to achieve but it also shows how good it was because I never felt lost or out of the loop. It is a GREAT FILM. And Robert Downey Jr. is fantastic. OMG. Everyone needs to see this movie.


(This is how into BSG I am: during the jet fight scene, I was like, I'd love to see Tony Stark go up against Starbuck and Apollo. Pilots = made of win. Tony Stark = also made of win. Too great.)

Seriously. Go see this movie. You will love it.

I get to see Iron Man on Wednesday, two days before everyone else does.

I just turned on TBS and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is on, and of course the moment I turned on the TV was the moment Jessica Rabbit appeared for the first time, slinking her way across that stage.

I wanted to BE Jessica Rabbit when I was little. I know this explains so much about me.

Someone please tell me why I never saw Love Actually before Sunday night. It was silly and heartwarming and sad and just what I needed after being at work from 9am until 12:30am. Maybe I cried a little. (I blame the wine.)

Oh romantic comedies, I adore you.

I took Adam to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He was not impressed. I loved it even more. I am absolutely going to reread all the books.

Afterwards Anna cut my hair and we had girly catch up time, and then we got in the car and drove around the city discovering neighborhoods we'd never been to before - Chinatown, Greektown. Then we went to the Golden Nugget at midnight and had french toast. We need to have more of these dates.

I am going to bed since I have been running on about 4 and a half minutes of sleep all day.

I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix after work today, and I am slightly hesitant to say this because at last 50% of the time I recant these statements, but I think it was my favorite of all the movies.

I am so tired and half a bottle of wine didn't help. Goodnight.
helikedmyshoes: (ad + everybody dance now)
Am I the only person who didn't know Harry Potter came out on Wednesday? All the movie posters said the 13th. Now I have to wait until Sunday when I could've gone on Wednesday. Bitches.

Adam and I did go see Transformers, which I loved. It wasn't without its flaws (why was Optimus Prime such a pussy?) but it was a lot better than I expected, and Shia La Beouf has completely won me over. Can't wait for Indiana Jones 4!

I really don't want to work a double today. Boo.

I am going to buy PotC: Dead Man's Chest tomorrow even though I didn't really care for it because I AM EASY. I just watched Curse of the Black Pearl.

EASY. =. ME.

(I don't think that sentences and math should be mixed. Oh well.)

I would let Orlando Bloom stick it anywhere.

Mmmm Pirates 3. LOVED IT. Totally made up for the second one by about a billion. I want to see it again right now but I think I might fall over from the tired.

More later.

The snow tonight is like the kind in fairytales. It feels magical.

Adam and I saw Pan's Labyrinth yesterday. Fantastic. I highly recommend it. It was devastating and uplifting, rocking betwen war and imagination, a beautiful, haunting film that was stunning and horrifying yet soothing. They are marketing it as an adult fairytale, which obviously cannot be as wholesome and sweet as a children's fairytale - the gore was all the more awful because it has no place in my perception of a fairytale. But all fairytales are about hope and bravery, and this certainly has its share. Go see it. It's incredible.

I met up with [ profile] _venus_ and her friend Keri for lunch today. Jessie and I finally met after meeting 7 years ago online. It's strange, all of you people who know me so intimately that I have never ever met. A lot of times that makes it easier to confess, because you are real but really only on paper because I don't know how your laughter sounds or even what you sound like when you speak or how tall you are when you stand next to me or what it's like to give you a hug involving arms and torsos and not 0s and 1s. But I know a lot of secrets, a lot of fears, a lot of hopes. I dare say I know you all better than most of my friends - I am proud to say it.

Anyway. Tangent. I met them downtown and we went to Miller's Pub for lunch, which was packed with Bears and Saints fans when we arrived but quickly thinned out. Jessie is adorable and crazy for wearing heels in Chicago in the middle of the winter. [ profile] ashley, she took a picture for you but I don't know how well it came out, hopefully I look like my hot self in it. ;)

I had the Bears/Saints game on while I studied, and I couldn't help but root for the Bears even though I hate football. I got caught up in the excitement of it all, I guess, I couldn't help hoping that the Bears would win, being the home team and all that. A part of me wanted the Saints to win, to bounce back after Hurricane Katrina and a 3-13 record and go to the Super Bowl the very next year, but I think making it to the championship game was not too shabby either. Adam and I talked about having a Super Bowl party, given the enormous TV and all. It will be different than other years, cheering for a team that I am constantly surrounded by support for. I still don't care, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy myself.

I am in the midst of studying my 140 page binder for my upcoming training week at Bandera. I have two tests every day of my training (there are 6 days), tests on the seating chart, the computer abbreivations, the appetizers, the soups, the sides, the entrees, the desserts, the liquor, the red wine, the white wine, the artwork on the walls and then I get to serve the GM and take a final written and verbal test.

I understand the need for such thoroughness, especially considering how much they pride their service and how big a part of the dining experience is it. Still, can we say overkill? None of the ingredients are listed on the menu, so I need to know EVERYTHING in case of food allergies or just for general questions, and each dish has between 6 to 12 ingredients. And there are about 40 dishes. THAT IS A LOT OF FOOD IN MY BRAIN. Plus the wines, plus the ARTWORK (wtf?). Yikes. No playing for Serena this week.

And now I am going to get back to work. I feel like I'm at Purchase again, though with less distractions. And by distractions, I mean blowing off work to drink with the boys. Sigh. Miss you. See some of you in two weeks!

Every negative thing I thought about Hollywoodland was just quite effectively erased by the tragedy known in common circles as The Black Dahlia.

Seriously. Hollywoodland > BD a million bajillion times over. I want those two hours of my life back. What a fucking joke. Which is really disappointing because it seemed to have potential, and just - NO. Who thought it was a good idea to make Josh Hartnett actually try to act?

What a disappointing night.

"This is the City of the Angels and you haven't got any wings."

Dear God, I love and adore LA Confidential above pretty much everything else. Except puppies. I almost bought one the other day at the Beverly Center. So cute!

Anyway, as I was saying, LA Confidential is one of my absolute favorite movies and Molly had never seen it so she came over and we watched it and now I am even more excited for The Black Dahlia even though Josh Hartnett makes me queasy. Can it be the 15th already?

Now maybe I'll watch another episode of BSG. Or House. Or more S1 of Veronica Mars. Or I could start Firefly. I am in control of the remote my own destiny. I started The House of Sand and Fog today, too. Liking it so far.

My shoulders hurt. Too much time on the computer. On that note-

Beerfest made me want to come home and reenact key scenes of the movie. Like the excessive drinking.

Instead I had some wine I've been saving for a year that turned out to be not so good and watched 4 episodes of Rescue Me and definitely did not shower after the gym.

I'm a party animal.
