Favorite Movie Monday

This is the last Monday for December and there are so many Christmas movies I like. Some of my favorites that didn't get a spot are: The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street, Step Mom, and A Christmas Story.

While You Were Sleeping starring Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman, Peter Gallagher, and Peter Boyle



I like this movie even when its not around the holidays. The "Leaning" scene is one of my favorites! My family and I bring it up in normal conversation once in awhile anyway. haha.

Favorite Movie Monday

It's a Wonderful Life starring James Stewart



I love this scene. This is one of my sister's absolute favorite movies! She had me watch it, and I loved it! Released in 1947!

Little girl with the same name

So. There's this little girl that comes in with her mom and brothers and sisters at my work. A few days ago was about the fourth time I had talked to her. Every time she comes up and talks to me and says, "Your name's Ashley?" And I say, "Yes, what's your name?" Or "Yes, and so's yours?" Cos I remember her now. Its funny.
This last time she came in was interesting. She followed me around putting dresses away and asked me a lot of questions. She asked me, "Why do people leave their clothes here?" And I said something like, "Because they try them on and don't like them and don't want to put them away." And she said, "That's dumb. Do people really try things on over there and not in the bathroom (meaning fitting room)?" She then told me what times tables she knew and which ones she didn't and asked me them. She asked me what 300 times 400 was and she told me I was so smart. haha.
Then she told me her full name and she's Hispanic and said it super fast so I had to tell her to slow down. Then she told me she was in 3rd grade and I asked her, "So are you 9?" And she got a little embarrassed and said "No, I'm 8." So then I asked her when her birthday was... She said, "July 8th." For those of you that don't know, that's my birthday too. So I was surprised and said, "REALLY? That's my birthday too. That's crazy!" And she got a huge smile on her face and I don't know if she really believed me. But it was really funny. That was one of the good days at work.
Speaking of work, I'd rather not go. Yuck. Yuck. I work 49 hours this week with only Wednesday off. Blah! I have 3 more tests to take for school. Not exciting. But I am excited for the semester to be over!!! Only 11 days until Christmas. I better get shopping! I have my sister done, and part of my Mom. That's it.. :/

Work, School, and Christmas is coming!

I realize I write about work and school a bit too much. I am so sick of my work. If anyone has any job ideas, I would LOVE to hear them. School is almost over this semester! I am so glad! The only huge downside is, I don't have enough money to pay off this semester still. What that means is, I'm not able to attend Spring semester 2010. Ugh. Graduation is so far away. I need more of that green stuff.

Only 16 days until Christmas! Wow! That is crazy! It has come so fast! I do not have my shopping done at all. I only have my sister's birthday and Christmas finished! I did find something else I want for Christmas though! This Bob Marley hoodie from Hot Topic. I LOVE it.


I also dyed my hair yesterday. Not purple. Its just dark brown, all of it. It looks a lot better. I love it too. I should probably be doing Medical Terminology right now.

I am excited for Christmas. We put up our tree Saturday and decorated it on Sunday. We're having Christmas breakfast at our house this year so I'm glad. I love breakfast. I have so many things I'm going to buy for my cats, they will be easy to buy for. But the parents? And my brother? Not so easy. :/

Favorite Movie Monday

Its the first Monday of December, so I thought I would do a theme. My favorite holiday movies! :) SO, here's the first.

Prancer starring Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, and Rebecca Harrell



I love this movie! I used to watch it all the time around Christmas!

Also, today is the day when Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941. That was a long 68 years ago. Five of Eight battleships were demolished, and more than 200 aircraft were completely destroyed. 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,200 were wounded. In WWII, America lost 400,000 lives during four very long years. Remember those who fought for our freedom.

"The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave the lustre of midday to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer." - Clement Moore from The Night Before Christmas

December already?!

I don't have any more blogs scheduled to post so I thought I'd write another one today. I'm sick. again. with a stupid. stupid. cold. It started on Thanksgiving. It is no bueno. I have a lot of homework to do.. And classes are almost over which is exciting but at the same time overwhelming because of time constraints.

Oliver, my sister's cat is now sleeping in her room. Gigi and Simba still sleep in my room. Why? Because Oliver has been having this problem.. He pees on my blankets, anywhere. I don't know if its a behavioral issue or if he has a bladder infection or what. So we bought another litter box just for him, that worked for awhile. But then he did it again. So now we're trying separate rooms at night. Hopefully this works. Any suggestions? If this doesn't work, we'll have to take him to the vet to see what's up.

So I bought a couple things on my Christmas List already. Ooops! haha. I bought my beloved mia gelato boots, they are fantastic! And Adam Lambert, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga's new albums. They are good. I was expecting more from Lambert but his music is still great. I was just expecting more rocker, I think I would enjoy that more. So cross those few things off my list!

ITS DECEMBER 1ST! Can you believe it? This year has gone by so fast. Its crazy! I am still looking for another job so if anyone can clue me in on some openings that would be fabulous. Is everyone ready for Christmas?? I'm not. I only have my sister done. That's it. Eeek! Oh, and I do NOT want snow to come. Please do not come. You are not welcome.

I got my hair cut. Now I need it dyed. Should I go for purple? haha. Alright. I'm outta here.

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear
