Hum de dum

Not much going on today. It was a holiday so no work. Got some frames for my photos. Bought food for the event at work this week. Made some brownies (and at a couple). Also watched The Holiday. I really like that movie. Semi-realistic, happy ending, cute boys, good actors, it's about Christmas...

Oh, discovered poppies are apparently the flower of choice today. I googled it so I now know why, but in ALL my days I have never seen anyone wearing a poppy. The person who informed me made me feel like such a doof. Well, now I know for next year and maybe I'll write a post before hand so the gobs and gobs of people who read my blog will know too.

I'm freezing, so I think I might make some hot cocoa and find my slippers and snuggle with Riley and KP.

A true business man

Okay, so walking out of CVS today I was witness to a kind of funny and slightly disturbing conversation a man was having on his cell phone in the parking lot. He was so loud I couldn't not help but listen. At first I thought he was talking to a business associate, but soon realized, oh no, it was his girlfriend.

It went something like this when I figured out it was his lady friend:

"Now, see here I make half a million dollars every year at the very least. That is what I bring to the table. All you bring is good looks, and the fact of the matter is that no matter what, that is a depriciating asset. Every day you get older and eventually won't look so good. Any then what? What do you have? Absolutely nothing. Now me, I have half a million dollars and by investing it is constantly appreciating and making money. Now, tell me why would I want to compromise a profit? If it were a business deal it wouldn't make sense, so we don't make sense."

Wow. Harsh. I'm glad I'm not his girlfriend. He did have a nice car though...

Movie reviews

Okay, so not having cable I watch a lot of DVDs.

The Reaping - I'm not usually a fan of scaryish movies, but I actually enjoyed this one while I couldn't sleep last night. Hillary Swank has done better acting, but the big swarm of locusts was pretty cool.

Unaccompanied Minors - It is what it is. Enjoyable if nothing else to watch, but it's no Home Alone.

Movies I can't wait to watch:

Rented Transformers and that is on my schedule of useless things to do this afternoon. Wheee!

I just don't get it.

What is the appeal of turning your music up so loud in your car that your neighbors can hear it in their house as if the stereo was sitting next to them????

Love the new neighbors.

I love coupons

Okay, so I know I say this all the time, but I love coupons.

I went to the grocery store today and Juicy Juice was BOGO plus I had a coupon for a free Juicy Juice, so I got two full size things of juice for FREE. Whoo hoo! All in all I shaved about 70% off my grocery bill using coupons and store sales. I LOVE coupons.

What I don't love are poo poo heads. I was on my way to a meeting yesterday and some dufus turned right on his red while I was going on my green. I seriously have not been soooo close to an accident. Literally, TWO INCHES separated us from collision. He just looked at me and goes 'uh, hey man. sorry' and shrugs his shoulders. Who does that?

On a lighter note, this little gem was added to KP's Christmas list. Isn't it adorable?
