Favorite Movie Monday

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, and Taraji P. Henson

Life isn't measured in minutes, but in moments.

A newer movie. It has such great color schemes, storyline, acting, directing, and wardrobe! It tells a story about a little boy that was born an old man, as the story progresses, as he ages he keeps getting younger. Its a great story.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving. I can't believe its already here! This year will be different. My family is having Thanksgiving dinner at my Uncle's mom-in-laws house. It will be interesting. I am excited though because my Uncle Steve is coming! He lives in California and we don't get to see him too often. I actually don't enjoy Turkey off the bird. But I absolutely love stuffing and apple pie. YUM!

A few things I'm thankful for:
  • My family
  • A house over my head
  • My job, even if I despise it
  • My cats
  • My friends
I hope everyone is having a great holiday and don't eat too much! Tomorrow is Black Friday and I have to work at 6 AM!

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful." - Buddha

I'm here for your entertainment & Christmas List!

Music, Music, Music, I love thee! I am so excited for all the great new music coming out! Adam Lambert's For Your Entertainment, out 11/23. Rihanna's Russian Roulette, out 11/23 as well!

Favorite Movie Monday

John Q, starring Denzel Washington, Anne Heche, Robert Duvall, and Kevin Connolly

Give a father no options and you leave him no choice.

This is a very touching story. If you haven't seen it, you should. Its heartbreaking and also funny. I love the "Dashboard" part. If you need a good cry, go rent this one. :)

Update and I miss you Gramps

I seriously suck at blogging lately. I have been overwhelmed with school and working the past month or more. I haven't even posted the Phoenix pictures yet. I suck. I admit it. BUT! I have a four day weekend for some reason, the stars must love me or something this week. Well, maybe they don't. I had yesterday, today, Sunday, and Monday off of work! Time to do a bunch of homework! Time to clean my room! Time to catch up on blogging a bit! I hope.

Yesterday, my Grandpa Boyd passed away 14 years ago. I can't believe its been that long. It seems like it wasn't very long ago we would help him build a fire in the fireplace, he'd watch us jump on the tramp when the other adults didn't want to, I miss the morning breakfasts in the mountains. I remember how he used to shuffle playing cards, he taught me how to shuffle his way. He shuffled just by placing other cards randomly into the deck by hand. Its hard to explain but it was fun. I remember he gave me a shirt to wear for pajamas, it was a SeaWorld shirt. I still have it. I remember having sleepovers there all the time with all the cousins. I remember the 4th of July sleepover and waking up early that morning to walk over to Mt. Jordan and have their breakfast and then watch the parade, and later the fireworks. I love you Grandpa. Miss you.

Grandpa Boyd, gotta love his big ears

Yesterday kept getting worse. I needed to take a math test. It took me forever to drive down there because of traffic, there wasn't a parking spot, I had to walk far, I had to wait in line to get my test, and then the lady gave me the wrong test and couldn't find the right test for me to take. Then I get home and its time to go babysitting. Charlie was not happy, he cried for about 45 minutes. It was sad. Then, Sam would not go to sleep. He couldn't decide if he was tired or hyper. I get home, start cleaning my room a bit and Oliver, my sister's cat, decides to pee on one of my blankets. Then I pick the blankets up to wash, and there's a huge spider! It was an exhausting day.

I have been applying for a lot of jobs lately, mostly IHC jobs, and no one has called. I really need a new job. I hope I can find one by January. I think I can survive the holidays at Macy's, it will go by fast. January will just be torture. Anyone know of anyone hiring? Hook me up! :)

I'll definitely catch up on my blogging this weekend. You WILL have a Favorite Movie Monday. I missed this week's again. My apologies. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I can't believe Thanksgiving is in less than a week! AH!! :)

Favorite Movie Monday

Speed starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, and Dennis Hopper

This is an old-time favorite of mine. I was only 6 years old when it came out. I loved Keanu Reeves in this. This was probably the action film that began my love for action packed films.

Just watching this trailer makes me want to go watch it! :)

Annie: Hey! Get your ass behind the yellow line.
