sadly, i am an addict.

so, i bought some new movies...a lot of them. is it an addiction? sometimes i wonder. but i bought 7 and i got them for 5.99 each. so i think it's a steal. anyway...i thought i could make movie trivia out of it. here's the 7 movies i bought...ready, set, go...

1. “I need to talk to you. Every time I call you're either taking a bath, washing your hair or you're out of the country. That was a good one, by the way”

2. “Just because you're beautiful doesn't mean you can treat people like they don't matter.”

3. “Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?”

4. “I hope you enjoy the gloves you bought yourself.” “Oh, I'm sure I will, I usually enjoy my own thoughtfulness.”

5. “I don't care how liberated this world becomes - a man will always be judged by the amount of alcohol he can consume - and a woman will be impressed, whether she likes it or not.”

6. “George Michael is all about the ladies. "I want your sex". Does that sound like he's singing to a guy?”

7. “What are you doing here, honey? You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets.”
“Obviously, Doctor, you've never been a 13-year-old girl.”

picnic movie trivia...

we had a picnic luncheon today at work. so todays theme is picnics. 1000pts for each correct answer. ready, set, go...

1. I don't blend in at a family picnic
chris - batman forever

2. All those kids yours mister, or is this a picnic?
chris - cheaper by the dozen

3. Oh, you know the type. Married to his job. Either that or gay as a picnic basket
chris - love actually

4. Milking a yak is no picnic, but once you pick out all the hairs it's very nutritious

5. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world.

Uh-oh. Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays.

i'm really not a fan of mondays. blah. the title of this post is up for grabs...2000pts to the person who can correctly identify what movie it's from. GO!

This weekend was actually pretty amazing. I was really lazy and I loved it. robyn’s office is throwing a double baby shower and she got put in charge of buying gifts. So on Friday night, I went baby shopping with robyn to buy gifts. I got to shop for the boy baby and she shopped for the girl baby. It was a lot of fun! I know she didn’t think so, but I loved it.

This weekend was a dawson’s creek fest at our apartment. I got season 6 in the mail on Tuesday and I spent all weekend in capeside. I must admit, it was a pretty nice vacation. I can’t get enough of all the growing up that occurs, the drama, love triangles, and coming of age…man, I love it.

Robyn and I also dyed easter eggs. I haven’t done that in years. But it was so fun! my favorite was a dark blue one I made for Jaclyn that said “jammin’ on the one.” (Name the tv show that comes from for 500pts. )

So all around it was a good weekend…very relaxing…very calming. I’m not ready for the week to begin yet. Especially when the week always starts with Monday.

one week ago

so one week ago tonight, something very blog worthy happened. i jotted down some notes after the event so that i would remember everything that i needed to write about.

last monday when i got off work, i had a voicemail message from my friend rich. he was calling to tell me that he was going to be playing downtown at this showcase and that if i wasn't doing anything i should come down. i went home, fixed some dinner and asked my roommates if they were interested in going with me. we decided on that random monday night that there wasn't anything else going on, so we were in. around 8:15 or so we headed out toward downtown and we had no idea what kind of adventure we were in for.'s definitely the top of my random list for this year...maybe even the last couple years.

first of all, the whole way there, my roommates talked about nothing but professional wrestling. i had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. but they found a way to talk about it the entire way there. we drove past the place at first and had to turn around in the "gentleman's club." we found the place and parked the car and got out. before we ever even set foot in the warehouse, the craziness had already begun.

there were a lot of ridiculously crazy sets. there was a man who had a conference call on stage praising the name of Jesus. there was a woman who couldn't sing very well. there was a girl who kept playing and i didn't ever think would stop. there was an all male group who jaclyn referred to as "philips, craig, and dean."

and then, i saw my idol. there was this old lady running a video camera right in front of us. she had to have been about 60. she had a water bottle attached to her hip with this weird contraption. i leaned over and told jaclyn that i wanted to be her when i grow up. we laughed about it a lot. then, later...we saw her beating herself with a rubber mallet. it was very strange.

there was a lady in the corner painting a picture. at first i thought it was going to be like bob ross and she was going to actually have some beautiful painting. but you know when bob takes a big brush stroke and you never think it'll turn out after his big screw up? well, hers never made that transition into masterpiece. at first it looked like an ocean. then at one point it looked like a horse head. then it turned out to be this green warior. yeah, don't ask...cause no one around us knew either.

we were getting restless and rich still hadn't played yet. it was getting really late and we were debating on leaving. but for some reason everytime we went to leave, something else forced us to stay.

i met this guy who was exteremly weird. he asked me if i was on myspace. i hated to tell him the truth. but he knew i was rich's friend. eww.

At one point, we realized there was food. jaclyn made her way to go get some, but all she came back with was a handful of chips. she put one in her mouth and gave me a disgusting look. she looked at me and said "that chip was wet." eww.

there was a gospel reggae group that sang a song...they were actually pretty good until they busted out the "salute da king" chant accompanied by some weird hand motions.

this crazy guy came up to jaclyn and said "i've been dying to ask you this all night. were you in the crucible at belmont?" at that point i was doing everything i could to not crack up in the poor boys face. even after she told him that it wasn't her, it's like he didn't believe it and he kept asking if it was her...or if she had a twin. he was soo strange.

then, finally, after we'd been there for 4 hours, the best part of the evening came. rich did a set with his friends and it was absolutely amazing. it was sort of folkish...with a cello. very cool, calming stuff. it was neat to get away from the craziness of the evening and just sit back and see people worshipping. after that, rich did a set himself and closed down the evening. it's always fun to see people i know use their God-given talents to worship. it's always such a humbling experience to see them in that light.

it was a great night...
