Resolution Time

It's that time again when people make lists of things they want to do in the next year that they will give up on within a month. I made a list last year and got most of them done, so close enough. I'd like to try again this year with simple-ish (I hope) goals.

1. Watch seasons 1-3 of the original Star Trek on Netflix... because 1960's William Shatner is a hottie.
2. Read 20+ books
3. Lose 10-20 pounds before my High School reunion. Hopefully with the help of the Zombies, Run! app. Because I need motivation to run, and what could be more motivating than being chased by zombies?
4. Finish a story! This was a goal last year that I failed at so I'm putting it in my list again this year.
5. Finish a home project and blog about it.
6. Double my Kiva loans from last year. Hopefully more but that depends on funds.
7. Be anonymously awesome. I did this last year but I put it back on because I want to do it again.
8. Participate in World Book Night. If I'm not selected as a giver I'm hoping I can buy a couple of books on my own and give them away.
9. Make a vlog. Another goal from last year that I actually did. Maybe this time I'll actually share it. Maybe.
10. I don't have a 10th goal that I can think of right now, I just didn't want to leave it at 9.

If you have goals of your own this year, good luck!

Happy New Year!

Truck Delusions

Nathan: When I get a new truck it's going to be a diesel.
Me: You talk about this mythical truck a lot. Is it also going to be magic? It shall have golden rims and music will play when the doors are opened! Oh, holy diesel fueled truck!
Nathan: You sure are full of it today.
Me: I know.

I have days when I'm extra spunky. I like me a little bit more on those days.

Merry Christmas!

Favorite Things: Christmas Movie Edition

One of my favorite things about the Holidays are Christmas movies. Specifically comedies. That's why I love the following movies when the snow starts to fall.

Are you serious Clark? I can't get through the holidays without watching this movie.

My favorite quote from this movie is Clark's rant. Amazing.
If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is. Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?

I just love Bill Murray.

It's a Christmas classic. Even though I've seen this movie probably a dozen times, it's still something I look forward to every year.

I love Will Ferrell and Buddy the Elf is one of my favorite characters. His bubbly personality makes him loveable no matter how goofy he is.

Blah blah blah... Some joke about the world not ending.

Can we all just realize the joke has been done (& over done) and move on?

Thanks ever so much-

In other news, I saw Lincoln tonight and it was good.

That is all.

Another Goal Done

Actually got one of my goals done for this year.

I made a vlog today! It's really short. And I made it private even though it isn't the worst thing I've ever done. Maybe someday I'll try again, but they take too long to put together. I might spend time writing my blog, but for videos you have to record and edit and then post. Blah. Too much work for this lazy person. Plus I don't like anything about myself in video or picture form.

You want to see a short clip anyway? Oh, I suppose...

Awesome, right?

New Shirt!

My sweet new shirt arrived today! See what happens when you have no life? I get excited about shirts.

It is a great shirt though. I was going through it and picking out what all of the pictures were from. My husband said that if I knew at least half of them I could call myself a geek. Long story short, I can.

New Shirt!

That is all.

Dog Sitting & Early Morning Wakeups

I'm watching my parent's dog this weekend while they're on a trip to see family. I never go anywhere so they ask me to watch the dog whenever they want to go anywhere.

I usually don't mind, except in the morning. Because my parent's wake up ridiculously early. The dog is used to that schedule. Hence, I am woken up earlier than I want to so she can be fed and let outside. I kind of remember this from when we had our dog, but she was nice and slept in a little later. I miss my dog, but I don't miss having a dog, if that makes sense.

I need to stop and sniff everything any dog
has peed on ever...

It didn't matter much anyway because the neighbors are at their usual level of loud this morning. I think they are throwing their child at the wall. He yells loudly about something and then it sounds like a 40 pound child is hitting the wall at high speeds. Or he's hitting the wall with one of those giant sledge hammers they have at carnivals to test your strength. Either way I want it to stop.

Cable TV Is Bad For Me

We had cable put in last week, bringing our available channels from 4 to 30+. Having more than 4 channels is great, but there are so many shows that I love watching.

But I don't love watching for a good reason. I have been watching HGTV, which is mainly snobby people looking at expensive houses or remodeling their house and complaining a lot. I like seeing the outcome, but the picky/snobbishness gets on my nerves. Watching people nit-pick their million dollar vacation home makes me shake my fist at them in frustration. If you don't like it that much you can always give it to me!

Now I can watch all my shows I used to have to watch online. It's nice. And I spend too much time with my television. We're dating now. He's a giver.

Help me.

I'm a Jerk Sometimes...

Some friends of ours (my husband & mine) just had a baby today. I saw a picture and thought...

it looks like a baby.

A cute baby, but babies look a lot alike when they're first born. It's basically true. People with babies of their own just think their baby is special or something because it's theirs.

And then he helped some people down the street move today. He's a much better person than I am because I seriously doubt I'd help someone move that I don't really know. So good for him.

But then I ended up doing work on the house on my own because he wasn't here to help me, so... he's nice for helping other people but I'm left on my own so I'm cranky. Also, I had to babysit my niece and nephew so my brother-in-law could get talked in to helping them move. So I was double cranky because I had stuff to do and had to babysit. And then my niece had a disaster in her diaper which made me gag.

My afternoon was not great.

But then I ate ice cream after I got home and set up a cool printer that connects to our wireless so I'm feeling better.
