Just a few thoughts

I’m not feeling creative today so we’ll have a Mumbo Jumbo Monday. Here’s a bunch of randomness:


-We are one step close to having an herb/vegetable garden. Saturday we tore out the old, nasty garden. And we planted a bunch of seeds in trays. I’d like to go buy a few more packets of seeds. And Stephen needs to build the new garden. But it’s all starting to come together. Yay!


-I’ve had a crick in my neck for two weeks. I don’t do well on regular pillows and hard beds… and that’s exactly what the cruise provided. I had a massage on Saturday morning but it hasn’t seemed to help. Any Houstonians know a good massage therapist?


-Stephen and I watched Twilight this weekend. Of course the book was better. But I’m really disappointed. They had a great book to work with but the movie just didn’t make all of the connections. I didn’t “feel” the closeness between Edward and Bella in the movie. Bella just seemed like a crazy obsessed high school girl… you don’t feel that they are soul mates. Also, I think Bella was a bit too twitchy and her sweet, lovable, awkward personality didn’t come out on the movie. I have lots of complaints actually. Oh well, I guess that’s what happens when you build something up.


-I had a fried Oreo at the rodeo yesterday. Actually, I had 4 fried Oreos. They were pretty delicious. I also had two diet cokes and a turkey leg. They had to use a forklift to get me home. Oh and we skipped the actual concert. (It was ZZ Top, not really my kind of music.) But we went through the Livestock show from start to finish and it was great. I had never done that. I think I want a baby wallaby now!


Sorry, boring Monday. Hopefully my brain will be back tomorrow.

    Right, the movie wasn’t all that great…but Edward (Robert Pattinson) is still smokin! I blame the directing. I’ve seen Kristin Stewart (Bella) in other things and she’s not always that awkward. Luckily, New Moon has a new (hopefully better) director who has already stated a few times that he is going to keep the movie extremely true to the novel.

    Good luck on your gardening!

    Is Twilight worth a read, then?

  • 4. Lindsay  |  March 23, 2009 at 6:24 pm

    YES! DEF worth reading!…all 4 books, too..you can’t just read Twilight.

    wait, Bella “seemed like a crazy obsessed high school girl”???? seems kinda like the fan base…

    i couldn’t get up the gumption to try a fried oreo…fried batter doesn’t mix well theoretically in my mind. i don’t know. they are probably amazing.

    I had to laugh at the fact that you topped off the 4 fried Oreos and turkey leg with a Diet Coke… a girl after my own heart! 🙂 As Alice knows, I love my Diet Coke. 🙂

    Kelly, I have no idea what that is! Tell me!

    Lindsay, yes, Edward was perfect. Some scenes he was a bit too serious but I’m sure that was the director’s fault.

    Jim, yes! I’ve read the st two and they are great. It’s just such a great story!

    Matt, next year. Do it!

    Rachel, yeah yeah. I was so thirsty and couldn’t bear to drink “empty calories”. So Diet Coke it was.

    YOU HAD 4 FRIED OREOS AND A TURKEY LEG AND THEN WATCHED THE BIGGEST LOSER???? You are CRAZY!!!! Hope those contestants don’t find out that their biggest supporter ate like that! Woo- you would be in BIGGGG TROUBLE! 🙂
