My sister and I

I love that my sister and I can now share clothes...
I've done my part and lost a bit of weight and she's gained a little. I lost more than she gained.
But that's besides the point...

So this weekend, she's got a Semi-Formal to go to and she needed a dress. And I have a semi-formal the weekend after next, so I was looking online to find a dress. I sent her the link to one I liked and she liked it so much she said that she might buy it for her semi-formal.

I thought for a second and I was like...hold on. If I buy this dress and you buy this dress we'll spend money on having the same dress...why would we do that?

This is how we're working this. She ordered the dress in the size that'll work for both of us, it'll be delivered to her on Friday. She wears it for her Saturday Semi-Formal and then sends it to me Monday so I can wear it at my Semi-Formal the next Saturday.

Awesome. Hahaha...all this for a $20 dress. Fantastic.

hoping things go well...

I'm hoping and wishing and praying that the next few weeks go well. Please, God let them go smoothly. Please?

Two-fer Tuesday

I'm just sitting around right now. Practically done with my final project for my Animation class. YAY!
But I took some time out to watch a little TV.

I'm flipping between 3lbs and the American Music Awards.

Speaking of...go to iTunes and download the 3lbs Pilot's beautiful. Really well done show that should be on Showtime or HBO or even FX, not CBS. Though it does fit CBS' newer image as more of a network for science junkies, CSI anyone? But watch it, it's awesome.

So now I'm watching what I assume is the second episode. I came in late, so I don't know exactly what's happening but they just did a test on this woman who's pregnant. They're trying to get her right ride brean to speak. And they asked her right brain what made her angry, and she typed "baby". They asked why? and she typed "Need Radiation". WHA?!
*commercial break*

Excuse me while I ogle over John Mayer...and yes I know the stories. He's probably an ass, I don't intend on meeting him. But I'll watch and listen for now. ;)

Ok...back to 3lbs. Stanley Tucci is an arogant bastard in this show. It's amazing.

Cool things about this show...
1. Stanley Tucci
2. It's focused less on the medicine and more on the spiritual representation of what happens in our brains. Which is different.
3. The female Neurologist's british's so much more refined than Midge's accent. (my alter-ego)
4. That guy that was in every other B movie, but I couldn't tell you which ones.

now...for some Good Eats...Soups for Kids
YAY Alton Brown.
Have I mentioned how much I love this guy? I liken him to Bill Nye, but Alton's for food, and more for adults.
Watch Good Eats.

So in summary...
1. Watch and download 3lbs.
2. Watch Good Eats
3. I like to watch John Mayer

the end.

and I digress

So I've stumbled across a livejournal of a friend. It was one of those things that I just found in a profile, or as a link somewhere. But the fact is, I found it.

And I was inspired. He poured his heart and soul into those words. As much as they weren't all that specific, they were very heartfelt and just splashed out on the page. His writing relied more on the vocabulary and manipulating the english language to achieve a higher sense of understand that I could only dream of achieving.

I have a completely different style. I am too conversational. I lack the vocabulary to achieve literary heights, and so I rely on analogies that sometimes are irrelevant or comical. So kudos to my friend. You are not alone.

and on the level of TV...

I'm watching VH1..."I Married Sebastian Bach". Interesting. Sebastian and his wife are interesting people. Not quite as endearing as the Osbornes or the Hogans, or even the guy from Twisted Sister's family (Dee Snider). By the way...I want to see the reality show for the Sniders, they are hilariously dark and endearing at the same time. (I have no vocabulary)

Sebastian and his wife are a little rough around the edges, but that might be the editing. They go from talking about how much they're in love to him yelling at her. It just made him look bitchy and her like a slab of concrete to his steam roller. C'mon girl, get a little backbone. Apparently his new band is living in their Jersey home all together? Can I just say, weird?

Oh, here comes a White Stripes montage about sexual habits. ohh...Queens of the Stone Age. Why is it that these shows all have the same soundtrack? Please, MTV, VH1 get a new CD. Just one. I'm sure lots of people would give you one that's different.

Ok...enough about the sex and shit. We get it, you're in love. You don't have to cry about it now. Aww...slow motion was included. Annnd they're done. Thank goodness. Now for sleep.

P.s. the tone of this entry completely changed from beginning to end. special is all I can say.
