Mean Girls

After writing my post of yesterday, I went back to bed but I felt restless. So decided to get up and get dressed and head to the movies. Ended up seeing Mean Girls which lifted my spirits somewhat. Then I went shopping for a dress to wear to my friend’s wedding. I went to every major department store on Michigan Avenue and couldn’t find anything I liked. Truth be told, I couldn’t find a dress that fit me properly. I’m too slim for plus sizes but not skinny enough for regular sizes. I’m in that awkward in-between phase. So that […]

Soul Food

Racquetball Guy told me this morning that everyone likes to hear a good love story, so he’s comfortable with me talking about our budding romance. With that said, we’ve been spending a great deal of time together — in fact, we’ve been together the last 5 nights.

Wishing I had done it a long time ago, as it looks like Soul Food is a really good show. So too bad next week is […]

Granted it was over the top and the producer/director took poetic license with history, it was still a good movie and definitely one worth seeing on the big screen.

The Last Samurai

Racquetball guy is over here hanging out. No I still haven’t shown him this blog. Maybe later. We’re actually going to attempt to watch The Last Samurai which is now overdue from the video store. We tried to watch it on Sunday night while everyone else was watching Survivor, but I fell asleep. Let’s see if I can make it through without falling asleep again. Udpate: Dozed off — but did wake up in time to see the end. Not a bad movie. Thinking I might have enjoyed watching it more if the picture quality was better and I didn’t […]

TV-Turnoff Week 2004

There’s a group out there that wanted us to turn off our TV for all of last week. I’d like to think if I had know about it sooner, that I might have actually had the will power to seriously consider going for a week, but I know don’t. Plus, I’m always doing something else when I’m watching TV so I don’t feel like the time is totally wasted.
