An update!!!

It's been quite a while since my last real update hasn't it?
It's been decent since the last post. I've had some job interviews, took two more tests, studying for midterms, and driving around in my car

At the moment I'm taking a break from homework, I'm researching prices to visit DC next summer, going to go there with mom probably. I love DC, I hope we get to go! I really want to go on a little trip this winter, either by car or a very short plane ride. I have a plane ticket I never used that can be used so I can use that. I'd love to go to Oregon for winter but I don't think I will. I'll feel like I'm intruding on their holidays.

I just finished watching The Birds. It's been a few years since I've seen it. A few years, heh, actually it's been more like a decade or something! I forgot how similar the house scene from Signs is to this. I wonder if M Night Shyamalan based it on that part.

I also made the mistake of watching Jaws: The Revenge again. I first saw this movie when I was a child and, as a shark nut, I was angry with the movie. I'm still a shark nut but rather then being pissed off, I was just horrified at this movie. It is just so bad. It isn't the "so bad it's hilarious" type of movie, it's the the "so bad you want to gauge out your eyes with a rusty butter knife" type of bad. For those of you that have never had "the pleasure" of seeing this movie...

THe youngest Brody boy, Sean, became Police Chief of Amity Island after Martin Brody died of a heart attack. One night he goes out and gets killed by a great white shark. The shark tears his limbs off and there's a fountain of blood. Despite the extreme loss of blood and the shock of the torn off limbs, Sean miraculously has the strength to scream his head off when he should be unconscious.
Ellen Brody, the widow of Martin and mother of Sean, goes to the Bahamas to visit her older son Michael. The shark from Amity Island somewhere hears about this and follows the plane to the Bahamas, over 2,000 in like..2 days even though a real shark would take at least a weak to travel that distance. Let's not forget he somehow figured out exactly which island in the Bahamas Ellen was going to go to.
Lots of family drama with a dash of rubber shark and we get to the climax of the movie.
Ellen and some others (her stupid older son included) go out to destroy the shark. The son, Michael, takes these electric doodads that supposedly the shark hates. Before that though, the character that should have been credited as Stereotype Jamaican, gets chomped by the shark right in the stomach and dragged to his watery grave. Before that though he's high up on the boat's mast and the shark lunges out of the water and balances on his tail on the surface of the water like some sort of super Shamu shark! The shark stays on it's tail fin for about 30 seconds before deciding to munch on the walking stereotype.
Then it swims away and Michael starts to charge the electric doodad and pressing the button once in a while. Every time he does that the shark surfaces roaring. Yes, that's right, he roars like a dinosaur. This shark is so advanced! Not only can it balance on it's tail fins and swim backwards but it also roars like a dino! Ellen starts getting flashbacks of scenes she wasn't even around for (Martin killing the shark in his 'smile you son-of-a-bitch glory and Sean's blood bath). She decides to impale the shark on the bow of the boat and because of this, the shark explodes! But before that the shark has to throw in one more tail balancing roar.
Yes my friends, this was Jaws 4. I watched it again and I was sorely tempted to bleach my brain.
I'd rather watch Orca again then this and I absolutely despise that movie.


Anyway, enough of that. I think I've lost some weight in my face. I just joined a gym last week and I've cut back on red meats like I might have mentioned before. I've also cut back on carbs, starches, and sugars. Not cut off completely, just cut my intake of those in half. I also mostly drink water, raw juice from our juicer, and my diet Dr. Pepper :P
I took a few photos of myself, I'll put links up.
here's one
Another
the last one and my favorite
I was in an artsy mood so these photo reflect that. I gotta say, black and white makes anybody look classy! So yeah, the last picture is my favorite. I actually think I look, dare I say it, pretty in that picture ;)




Spencer's such a big boy. He's 14 pounds and he's very solid. Just a little belly but the rest if kitty muscle.




I love Neville, he's such a squishy fuzzy boy.






He is so gorgeous, he's going be so stunning when he's fully grown. I think he has some turkish angora in him. His hair is bunny soft like an angora, he has the basic facial structure of the breed, and he's very friendly like the breed. Oh he isn't pure bred of course, I just think he has some turkish angora in him :)


One more. :)



I really love my car, it's so awesome! I haven't had to get gas for it yet which makes me happy. The fact that I can push the button on my keys and find my car in a crowded parking lot (the lights flash) makes me all giddy. I don't care if that's common, I still love it xD

I miss my cousin. I still haven't been able to talk with him since July. However, he did text me the other night! I was playing my video game (Parasite Eve II) and I heard his ring tone go off (Wicked). I throw my controls, dash to my room, trip over the cat, and fly to the phone only to find out it was just a text. I was over the moon for a few minutes hearing from him. Hopefully his schedule will calm down and we can have a nice long talk.

My sister-in-law's mother thinks I'm strange for not being all excited over being an aunt. I'm not excited but it's not like I'm dreading it. I'm looking forward to when the kids old enough where I can introduce him to the wonderful world of books. I'm hoping it's actually his parents that do that but neither one reads unless needed so I dunno. Hopefully they'll realize that they need to expose the kid to books otherwise it would turn out like them. All I do know is that I have the exclusive right to getting the kid the Potter books and reading them to him. What age is good to introduce the series? The first two are fanciful and not as complex so for them....6? I do know what my first presents to the child will be though, I already bought the stuff. Well I didn't buy the stuffed animal yet because nothing caught my eye but I did get Shel Silverstein books, Where The Sidewalk Ends, The Light In The CLoset and of course The Giving Tree. Never too young to get read these books! :D

I have a couple more job interviews this week. I'm really hoping something works out, it's nearly the holiday season!

Classes are good, I'm getting mostly As in the classes with a few scattered Bs, weee!

Oh, I can't believe I nearly forgot this. My mom went to get surgery on her nose Tuesday. She had, I think, a deviated septum that caused her problems her whole life. It only got worse so it was hard for her to breathe through her nose. She got surgery done on it and still has the bandage over it. She should be able to go to work Monday though.

Alright, I guess that's enough.

Time to sleep!

I think the first 2 books might be okay for a kid that young, depending on the kid (one of my nieces would have been okay but my other niece and my nephew would not) but I would say definitely not the movies until their older. Maybe 8 or 9 if they are prone to nightmares.

oh and I forgot to tell you, all those photos are so great, you look amazing! And I love the ones of your dog and cats. My cats were all strays and they are very afraid of everything, they would never be that close to Sunny, let alone so relaxed.

Thanks!

Neville's amazing. The day we let him free in the house we introduced him to Heidi. He went right up to the dog and sniffed his nose and that was it! He doesn't cuddle up to Heidi or anything, i put them together for the photo. He didn't care though :P

Hey look me up if you make it to DC! That's home turf baby. ;) Of course I have to be in school for part of it (unless I transfer). *sigh*

LOL, the way you describe it makes it seems like a horrible comedy, esp. when the shark 'blows up.'

Your cats are really gorgeous. :) I miss having pets.

I love my car too. You really bond with them after awhile.

Sorry, why would you be excited to be an aunt? It seems like your brother never says a kind word to you. Plus, not everyone's a 'kid person.' I think its wonderful that you want to get him/her to read though. :)

Good luck with the jobs! And great job with the grades. :)

I shall indeed look you up!

It is hilarious. I don't think the guy threw an explosive device in his mouth, just a thing to make the shark feel those electric pulses. Somehow though, being empaled by the wood jutting out from the boat caused it to go kaboom :P

Go check it out, it's good for a laugh xD

Exactly. It isn't the kid's fault but the way I'm treated by my brother doesn't make me excited to be an aunt -.-
All kids neeed to learn to love books! :D

Thanks!

OMG, how much of pain is your Mum in? Does it look bad? They want to do that to me, they've been wanting to for a few years (not for a deviated septum for other things but it's the same surgery) and I'm terrified!

Also, I have a friend who started reading Harry Potter to her kids around 4 or 5 but it was mainly for her benefit too because she had never read them. It'd say anywhere from 4 to 6 would be fine for the first two. Plus, you can always reread them or have them reread them when they are old enough.

That last photo of you is stunning! You could use it as a head shot! I love it.

Not that munch pain now. Her nose is just a bit swollen but it should go back to normal the doctors said.

Thanks! ^_^

I really can't tell if you did lose weight in your face, those pics are too artsy! :P
I believe you though, I just can't see it...
I hated "The Birds"...stupid and pointless...
However, "Orca" cracks me up...
I don't think I saw all the "Jaws" movies...they never really interested me...
I'm glad Ben texted you! :)
I didn't realize you SIL was pregnant, my bad. I don't pay attention I suppose. I understand you are not excited and I don't see why it's anyone's business but your own...seeing how your bro and his wife treat you, I wouldn't be excited either...:P
My uncle started reading the HP books to my cousin Vinnie when he was 2 or 3...maybe it was just to read, but he seemed to understand them...he was always talking about living in a closet under the stairs...they don't have stairs, but if we went somewhere with stairs he would look for Harry's closet...it was SO CUTE...
I haven't had to get gas in almost two months, but I also don't drive a lot, hehehe...
I have an interview on Tuesday with a wildlife museum! I am super excited...
Good luck on the job hunt and good job on grades! :)
I'm also glad the surgery went well...Dan needs to get that surgery, but we don't have the money...rent, bills, and etc. takes all your money...:P

Haha they're so supposed to be. I know you can't, I angle my face so you can't see the fat on it. I'll take people's word for it.
Ah, you didn't like The Bird!? Classic Hitchcock right there, my second favorite movie of his (Psycho taking the lead).
Eh, his wife's alright. SHe's a bit of a know-it-all but she's fairly nice.

I seeeeee...but maybe you should do a straight on shot, then maybe once a month show us a new one, and since you've been working out we will notice the difference! :) I plan to do that when I actually actively work out. Post a "OMG EW" pic then later on post a "I am proud I lost some weight" pic...:)
Not that you are ew you know...
No, I thought "The Birds" was a tad stupid...I don't know. Just too random for my taste...
Psycho was ok I suppose, the book was WAY better...
Oh I thought she was kind of a bitch or something
