Glee, it's like crack...

I just watched an episode of Glee. I was glued to my TV, I couldn't look away! Does that make me gay? :)

He looked like a dinosaur!

So the other night at work, we had a visitor walking through the field. He almost got hit quite a few times. The guy working outside was so scared to pick him up, he finally got him and brought him inside. He then ended up taking a tour of the clubhouse. Here's a video of his journey.

When words aren't enough...

There really isn't any point to this post, except to state:

Erin Kelly is the hottest thing since molten lava.

This is the background of my phone right now.

And do you see how small that snapping turtle is?!?

Closed In Observation of July 4th...

July 4th was yesterday!! Why do we need to observe a holiday that already has passed? Banks, Schools, even some restaurants are closed. What am I doing for this stupid fine "observation" day? Working. On top of that, everyone who gets this so called holiday off...comes to hit golf balls. 

Here's the finale of the fireworks show I got to see last night. I was two lakes over so they were kinda far away. Everyone around the lake was so festive though, and the dog has his american flag cape on, some of the fireworks people were setting off over the lake were almost better than the ones the city did. :/

Sorry the video is so shaky, I was laughing, and I had to replace the audio because the background noise was so loud.

Before and After...The Great Project

Its called the Great Project

It consists of: wet sanding the entire car, buffing the entire car, washing, waxing, touching up spots missed.

"Wet Sanding: is the process of removing imperfections from your car's paint through the process of applying sandpaper to the clear coat. It is a process undertaken by only the most stringent perfectionist and is incredibly labor intensive."

Whoa. So I was super hesitant about this project, but I was none too happy when the dealership repainted it last year under warranty and the paint seriously looked wrinkly and blurry. If I would have known they were going to do such a crappy job, I would have paid the difference for a good paint job, therefore not having to go through this process 6 months later.

Step 1: Remove couple layers of clear coat with super fine grit sandpaper and water.

The trunk was first.

Then the roof.

Before you know it, the entire car was blurry.

Step 2: Buff the hell out of it.

In the end it came out amazing, the guys at the car wash that did the buffing job were so great, I thought I was going to have to wax it myself but they threw that in for free! Then they went over it so many times once I got there to make sure it was perfect and to my liking. It kinda made me feel like a princess. *twirls*   :)

The final product was like glass, running your hand over the paint feels so smooth, compared to the bumps and divots in it prior. So all I have to say in closing is: Suck it Mitsubishi, the paint looks good no thanks to you! :)

I Finally Saw It


Last night. 6pm showing. Got there 35 minutes early. Read a book until it started. 

So, when one gets to a theater early, it gives them the opportunity to pick the BEST seat in the house. For me, I personally love right in the middle of the row, about halfway up. Who doesn't? Prime seating. Well, once I got settled, a couple came and sat on my right, they left the customary courtesy seat empty between us. I'm ok with that, and I would have thanked them right then if I knew what my immediate future entailed. About ten minutes until the movie was to start, two mothers and two daughters (age 7 or so) enter from the left into my row. There was like 6 seats to my left, they took up four, and left two on the end open. THEY SAT RIGHT NEXT TO ME!! There was no good reason they couldn't give me the empty seat courtesy, hello, have they never read the movie theater courtesy guide? Whatever, I shrug it off and figure the theater is going to get packed, maybe they're being courteous and leaving those two seats open for someone else. Now I wouldn't be so lucky. The movie starts and I hear, "MOMMY! I WANT TO SIT THERE NEXT TO (insert other child's name here)!!!" I hadn't notice that the children were sitting separately, so the woman next to me, stands up and switches seats with assumed daughter. I now am sitting elbow to shoulder with a 7 year old. Yay. I cant wait for the shirtless Jacob scenes.
So, said scenes happen, the ENTIRE theater, sounded like the gays were present in full force (unless straight men have suddenly taken a liking to a freakishly buffed out wolf-kid), whooped at the chiseled bod of Jacob. The girls next to me start giggling like they're f-ing high. Its just nipples girls. Jeesh. 
I'm sorry, but Stephanie Meyer could have held off on writing such corny lines, there were a few times that almost everyone erupted in laughter because of how awkward the actors sounded when they had to utter those lines with a straight face. Also, the actors could have tried to seem like they cared, they're acting seemed forced and was it me, or did Kristen Stewart just seem like she would have rather been anywhere else than acting for this movie. Her eyes just looked dead, and it looked like it pained Robert Pattison to smile. There was one hair-do of Bella's where she had it half of her hair pulled up out of her face and I would bet money it was the same wig they had Jacob wear in the first movies. 
All in all it was a good experience. I would definitely go to see it again, and I may bring things to set in the chairs next to me to pretend like i'm holding them for someone. :)

It was called Kick Ass, and it did just that.

So I went out on my voyage of self discovery last night and decided on going to see a movie, BY MYSELF.
Now, for those of you who don't know me, I am a super shy person, I don't mind crowds if I'm with another person(s), but by myself, no can do. So I was thinking, Hey, Eclipse is out now, I'll go try to see that! What was I thinking!?! As I walked out of the parking garage into the upstairs part of the mall where the theater is, I was assaulted by what seemed to be THOUSANDS of BOD wearing, peach fuzzed faced, Pokemon playing prepubescent teens all waiting to get into Eclipse.
It was opening night.
How could I have forgotten the mass hoards of people who maniacally drool and fight over who's the next,
Mrs. Cullen

Or to be ravaged by Jacob Black.

So I played it cool, and pretended to get a phone call, and turned around and walked back out to the car. I decided I wasn't going to give up so easily and that no matter what I was going to see a movie. So I turned the car around and went down the street to the dollar theater. 
Who doesn't like dollar theater's, they're so cheap, the floors are so sticky, and the seats always seem to be damp. 
So I walk in there, so excited to be doing something so independent, and I walk up to the movie board...and the only thing playing around 10 was Kick Ass. 
I took a chance, and remembered that I knew of someone who saw it and liked it, so I bought my ticket, popcorn, drink and Reese's Pieces, and 15 dollars later I was in my seat waiting for the movie to start.
There was a surprising amount of people in there for a late movie that has been out so long and I was shocked to see a family of 6, a dad and 5 sons ranging from 7 to 13, in an R rated movie! It may just be me but that just seems wrong on so many levels. Anyway, the movie was pretty good, funny in parts, it was a shock to see Nicholas Cage in it. The Mist-mobile was pretty sweet, I'm not a Mustang fan at all but this one all decked out looked pretty nice. I really want to price Lambo doors for my car now, I'm sure I could install them myself, save on some labor, you just may have to enter and exit my car through the windows. :) 
I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy it when it comes out, I would definitely watch it again. Seeing this movie makes me really want a butterfly knife and to learn how to use it. :)
