Movies

We just got out of the movie "the spirit" which was strange.

1. It was rated PG. Maybe its that I don't go to movies very often, but it seemed that the abount of amunition in the flick would warrant at least a PG-13

2. The one review I read of it gave it a half of a star (out of four or five stars, I don't remember (but does it matter?)) so I don't think I was expecting much, and thought it wasdefinately better than a half-star review. And the reviewer said it was confusing, but after a bit it really wasn't. Maybe they were high.

3. Eva Mendez's butt shows up nude. Now, she has a nice rear, but the funny part was the sigh from the man behind us. It was hi-flippin-larious

4. You should watch it.

Desk accessories

My boss, the owner, has an office upstairs here, and his son's girlfriend likes to go up there to use the interwebs. Every now and then she and I will sit up there and chat while she emails, and on my boss' desk is a gold business card holder with this gold mess on it that I adore, and can't help but touch when I'm standing there talking to her (wow, it didn't seem creepy til I typed it). So, this one day the boss' son was up there too, and I told him that when he takes over the business I have dibs on that card holder ("sure, woody, whatever you want" was his response). Anyhoo, today while I was up there going over the 2009 schedule that I was doing I said to the boss, "when you're dead levi said I get to have that card holder" and guess what? He replied "woody, if you want it, its yours. Here." And then gave it to me. Look:

Christmas tree lane

So, I've had the stomach flu since friday. Georgia got it wednesday, woody got it saturday early. For some reason I still feel gross, but was in need of fresh air, so we decided to go down christmas tree lane tonight (well, that and if we had to watch finding nemo a third time today (or 8th time this weekend) we would die). One of the displays in a yard is of a rather large snow man, made of three huge tumble weeds painted white and stacked as if they were huge snowballs. Now, that is just plain clever. Also, it reminded me of college. My roommate, sam, was from new jersey, and although very smart, just about died the first time she saw a tumble weed. She had thought they were these fake, made-for-old-westerns, props, and hadn't imagined that they were real things. So, I didn't really give her a hard time about it, seeing as how I was much more naive than she in seemingly everything except tumble weeds, but always found it hilarious. Actually, on those dry, windy days where they build up on the sides of roads I still laugh a bit at her expense. So, there's my story.

Done

I finished the fourth- and last - of the twilight books this week. the second book was my least favorite, but the series was thoroughly enjoyable. Its funny though, my favorite was the fifth book, the unfinished one. The author started writing the first book from the perspective of Edward, one of the two main characters, and about halfway through was having it proofed by some friends, one of whom posted the 264 page story on the clickyweb. The author was (rightfully) furious and decided to post the unedited version on her site for all to read, not sure that she would end up finishing this fifth story (which I hopehopehope she does). Anyway, I'll post a link to the fifth book, and encourage you to check it out, as it really is the best one of all of them.

Skirts

So, I was scheduled to work a graveside service yesterday at 11am, and the gentleman that was going to work it with me was going to meet me at the funeral home at 930 so we could load up all the flowers and casket and such and be at the graveside all set up by 10. So, it was freezing cold and I had received 4 calls the night before (of people that passed away) so I knew there was going to be a lot of paperwork to do after the service, which didn't bother me, I was just a bit bothered by the weather. Well, I had a brilliant idea that the guy working in the office that day should go on the service with the other guy leaving me to work on the new cases. I called the owner, who was thrilled that I thought of staying in the office (I pointed out that I wouldn't have time to call the new families before the service and the office worker would end up having to call me during the service to get info on stuff, which would be less than ideal) and so I didn't have to work out in the cold.

Now, that not-so-short story leads me to why I titled the post 'skirts'. The men that I work with all wear suits to work. I, for the most part, own skirt suits, or dresses, but own a few pant suits that I like. A while back I asked my manager about wearing pants and he said it would be fine, so I have worn them a coupla times. Well, last week he and the owner told me that I need to not wear pants any more. The thing is though, I'm sure its not they that have an issue with my attire, its the office manager, an older (mennonite) lady with whom I have had disagreements. Not disagreements that she knows about, but she has obviously disaproved of me a time or two - my manager has told me. So, yeah, I can't wear pants anymore, which sucks becaous long underwear doesn't look that good under a skirt and I freeze all day long.

Also, this gal, the office lady, she never wears pants, but also never has to work a service outside, nor does she work in the freezing cold prep room. So, its a bit of a pain to keep trying to kill her with kindness, especially when its so cold.

bored at work

for having had such a busy week, i sure have been bored today.

my coworker, ben, and i were chatting just a bit ago and he was telling me about the greatest worst movie ever made, the room, released in 2006 (i think), and how they are doing showings of it in la, and these crowds of people show up and yell at the screen and throw things at it, and it seems that a good time is had by all. just for a bit of reading, here is a review of the movie, and even though its long, it is definitely worth reading every last word. really a riot.

so, i guess twilight is off the hook as the worst movie ever, which makes me feel less guilty about needing to see it again.
