So, I was bad today and got punished...
At work we had some left over valentine's day stuff donated from Wal-mart. They are cutesy valentine's that have chocolate hearts in them. Four hearts to be exact. Well, I was CRAVING some chocolate and thought what the heck 4 little pieces won't hurt. As you know I gave up bad things for lent, chocolate being one of them. We'll I'm finishing up my third piece when I realize the fourth is missing. I look around my desk, in the trash, on the floor. I need this fourth chocolate. Three is not enough, but four is perfect. So, I finally give up and think, "hmm whatever" and go on with my business. An hour or so goes by...
I get up to go to the restroom and see the melted chocolate mess in my seat, and can only imagine what my rear end looks like! I start laughing, because what else can you do in a situation like this? So, I look down the hall and make sure everyone is in their office so I can sneak to the bathroom to see the damage to my pants.
It's bad....real bad. I get a paper towel and get it wet then go into the handicap stall and take off the pants and start getting the chocolate off. I think I got it all off for the most part. But I'm staying firmly in my seat till 5 then running to my car in hopes no one sees my wet behind!

Happy Hump day
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
As a child I had a pink room, and now as an adult still love it. I bought a pink comforter last year and the saleswoman told me how cute that would be in my daughters room. I looked at her funny and told it was for me, I'm not ashamed.
China town in NYC is my fav place to buy cheap yet great knock offs. NYC why can't you be near OKC?

Since it's almost V-day I figured I would post my favorite romantic comedy. Sigh, You've Got Mail. It's the top 5 of my favorite movies. If you haven't watched it, rent it! Or borrow it from me, but you better give it back cause I stinkin adore this movie. It was on Lifetime last night and caught the last 30 minutes, I laughed and cried and said every line. Oh and how can you not love parker posy in this movie!
Another good quote:
**Kathleen Kelly: What will NY152 say today I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.
Okay on to Music!
Coldplay's Viva La Vida
They just won a ton of grammy's for this albulm. I talked with friends who weren't that impressed with their lastest cd, but I love it, and i'm the one who counts on this blog :) ha
Lost!, Death and all his friends, strawberry swing
Andy Warhol and his fabulous collection of shoes! I would love to have these in my house, good thing I'm single cause I sure don't think a boy would go for that! This won't be the last time you'll hear me raving about Andy. I had a calendar of his shoes and I'm thinking about taking a few of my favorites and have the pictures of them framed.
Happy hump day! Let me know what you think!

Below is the rollingstone review:( it recieved 3 1/2 stars as well. What can I say, I have great taste)
Clint Eastwood has hinted that his role as bigoted Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski — a gun-toting widower living in Detroit near the struggling Ford auto plant and even nearer to the Asian immigrants crowding him out of his run-down, racially mixed hood — may be his last role as an actor. Eastwood, 78, has two Oscars for directing Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby, and two nominations for starring in them. But an Oscar for acting? Not yet. Get busy, Academy.
I don't think Eastwood will ever turn down a juicy role. But Gran Torino, named after the 1972 car that Walt garages and polishes like a symbol of his idealized past, is a humdinger of a valedictory. Directed by Eastwood from a script by newcomer Nick Schenk, Gran Torino is Eastwood's hell-raising salute to every hardass he's ever played. Cranky Walt often communicates in a growl that sounds like a demon in need of an exorcist (wait till you hear Eastwood rasp a few bars of the film's memorable title song). Walt squints at the Hmong family next door, especially Thao (Bee Vang), a teen with a rustler's eye on the Torino. Thao's smart-mouth sister, Sue (the wonderful Ahney Her), can defrost Walt with a beer and food that isn't his usual beef jerky, but only Walt's dog, Daisy, dares to get too close. Cocking his rifle when gangbangers intrude on his territory, Walt snarls, "Get. Off. My. Lawn." Terrific stuff. And it gets better when Walt confronts some hoods playing grabass with Sue: "Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while that you shouldn't have messed with? That's me."
And that "me" isn't just Walt. It's the Man With No Name taking aim in those spaghetti Westerns. It's Dirty Harry Callahan asking, "Do you feel lucky, punk?" It's William Munny, from Unforgiven, digging deep to note, "It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. You take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have." It's even Frankie Dunn, the fight manager from Million Dollar Baby, who knows "tough ain't enough."
Tough has never been enough for Eastwood. It's a credit to the film's twist ending that Walt exorcises his demons without easy violence or bogus redemption. A lifetime in movies runs through this prime vintage Eastwood performance. You can't take your eyes off him. The no-frills, no-bull Gran Torino made my day.

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat
You can see this piece at the Chicago Art Institute. Its my favorite piece of art. Seurat used tiny dots (the technique is called pointillism) to create a fabulous picture. I wonder how many dots are on this piece and how long it took him to create this? I'm not putting a review on this one because if you can't see its fabulousity yourself...well then your at the wrong blog.
