Last post Dec 20. Now that we are through the holidays and I am over the cold I had all week, I am back. LOVE LOVE LOVING my break!!! ME time!!! WOO HOO! I have been cooking, writing, reading, watching movies, going to the movies, and seeing friends. I took my mother to see Burlesque – the movie with Christina Aguilera and Cher. My mother LOVES Cher. I have taken her to every Farewell tour there has been in the NJ area. Anyway, the movie was AWESOME! If you are into theater or musical theater, go see it! I was dancing in my seat and ran out and bought the CD for my mother (Christmas gift) and I the same night. I can sing in that range and I have the song Somethings Got a Hold on Me as my ring tone on my cell. Christina has a set of pipes boy WOW! I was all into it! My mother of course loved it.
Now that 2011 is here, I did a Facebook clean out. I needed to alleviate the dead weight that was bringing me down. Some people I thought I had a relationship with but it’s like out of sight out of mind and who needs friends like that! This is going to be a good year I think. The Giants were eliminated from the playoffs which wasn’t so good for the new year but other than that, things will be great! All I have to say is GO BULLS! GO ST. LOUIS CARDS! Speaking of the Bulls, me, my hubby, and my brother are going to see the Bulls play the Nets on Wednesday at The Prudential Center. I can’t wait! Getting all my fun in while I can because once school starts up again, I go back to not having a life!
I still haven’t gotten my placement for my internship, which at first annoyed me, but you know what, whatever. I sent them an email today inquiring. It is what it is. I did find out however, that the illustrious state of New Jersey is pulling my unemployment as soon as I am finished with school. Isn’t that great? They want you to go to school to get trained in a new career but they don’t want to pay you until you find a job in that new career. Lovely. I need to get a job come May!
The holidays were low-key. A lot of family time and WAY too much eating! As I said earlier I had a cold all this week which prevented me from getting to the gym everyday like I wanted! UGH! I am starting back at the gym tomorrow. I had a nice routine going and then the holidays and this cold happened.
We are almost done with our second one act play and I have 53 word pages in the book I am writing. I need an editor and a literary agent.
Some good songs from Burlesque:
I cannot belive the Giants lost that game 38-31. 28 points by the Eagles in the 4th Quarter!!!! WHAT?!?!?!?! How does that happen?!?!?! I have never EVER been this ashamed to be a Giants fan in my life. What a heart-break! Now they have to win their last two games to even have a chance at the playoffs. I am not sure that is going to happen. When they lose big games, they have a tendency to quit the rest of the season. Remember the 49ner game many years back? How about the New Orleans game last year? After both those games, they went downhill. UGH! My husband and I were at the game yesterday and left in the middle of the 4th quarter to beat the traffic. It was 31-10! By the time we got to our truck, it was 31-17. Listening to the play by play in the car on the radio made me sick! I am a very passionate person especially when it comes to sports!!! In my opinion, heads need to roll today!
Let the tailgating commence at 0:900 hours! The Giants vs Philadelphia and Mike Vick at Giants Stadium for first place in the NFC East! Listen closely, you just may hear me screaming from our section in the upper tier! We are making grilled chicken cheese steaks, healthy, of course. I’m not drinking wine tomorrow – just water and hot chocolate. It’s a 1 p.m. game. Too early for wine. Plus it’s going to be FREEZING!
I hope there aren’t any Eagles fans around us. UGH! If I have to hear that damn Fly Eagles Fly song, I am going to hurl! My boy Steve Smith is out for the season which is a total bummer but Hakeem Nicks is healthy, Hagan has stepped up, Manningham has good downfield capabilities, and the rest of the “O” has what it takes. Our “D” has to step up and put pressure on Vick, contain McCoy, and cover Jackson. God, please don’t let them aggravate me. They NEED to win this game!
TNT is playing the hell out of The Wizard of Oz. *Singing* As Mayor of the Munchkin City, In the County of the Land of Oz, I welcome you most regally. But we’ve got to verify it legally, to see. To see? If she, If she? Is morally, ethic’lly, spiritually, physically, Positively, absolutely, Undeniably and reliably Dead!
We watched Deck the Halls tonight – too funny! It kind of reminded me of Christmas Vacation somewhat. How does Kristin Chenoweth get herself in these types of movies? She is such an awesome Broadway performer and I LOVE her on Glee! We saw her in Wicked. She was awesome!
*SINGING* Popular! You’re gonna be popular! I’ll teach you the proper poise, When you talk to boys, Little ways to flirt and flounce, ooh! – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNIwSYp4N-Y
I like this one – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XwmA0jyWMk – I love me some Indina Menzel! Listen to the words. Remember I have a song for EVERYTHING! If you know me, you will know why this is my song!
