A new place to shop

Check out woot They put new stuff up daily. The writing is a crack up!

Di's Movie Review

The latest movie is American Splender.
Here is the summary from Netflix

Harvey Pekar (Paul Giamatti) was a working-class stiff, a file clerk who found an outlet for his creativity by chronicling every minutia of his life in Cleveland, Oh., for more than 20 years in a comic-book series called American Splendor. This revealing biopic co-stars Hope Davis and tells Pekar's story through two-dimensional images, archival footage and more.

I thought this movie was VERY interesting. It is a look on how someone so negative, odd, and not lovable, become lovable. A comic book star that isn't a star, he is no hero!

From 1-10, I give it a 6.5, Eric gives it an 8 (he really liked it alot) I enjoyed it. I recommed it. I think this movie was amazingly not what I thought it would be, which just made it better. Give it a try!

Check out Harvey's blog here, it isn't exactly updated but fun to read.

See ya at "Di's Movie Review"!

Santa Claus is coming to town

Isn't it funny that we use the threat of Santa to make our children behave? I mean, has anyone ever misbehaved and been passed over by Santa? I can't tell you how many times in the last couple of weeks I have been on my way to e-mail or call Santa so Siobhan will behave. What am I doing the rest of the year? Why do I use Santa during December instead of what works throughout the year?

Something to think about. Although I will continue to say "Do I need to go e-mail Santa and tell him how you are not listening?". Maybe it is because it works! (sometimes!)

Whoever said Chicago is the windy city has not been in Orange County the last few days!

I was out shopping today and was reminded of the Gilligans's Island where he was holding on the tree and was lifted off the ground! Luckily little Diego was being carried. hee hee

Stay warm out there!

Please note the time

It is 2:39am and here I sit in front of my computer. Diego has been fed and is fast asleep. I have been up for about an hour already. I woke up because of these gosh darn winds which are killing me (asthma, nose is running). I thought, well at least Diego will wake up soon to eat and I am already awake. So after 6 hours, he wakes up, eats and is back asleep. Where am I? Here with you!

How can I sleep when my nose needs tissue every 30 seconds? So I check my e-mail, NONE! Now, what? Here I am.

So I could go on and on about nothing, instead I will say, please note the time and no one is on ichat. Is everyone asleep? Oh Michelle is up. Good girl!

3 more shopping days until Christmas and I have more people than that left to buy for.

Please take a minute

"We can use the best, most effective methods available to help homeless men, women, and children experience real change in their lives. But unless we stop seeing them as a separate category of people called "the homeless," even our best efforts will be useless."
-- Excerpt from the Los Angeles Mission's newsletter

Look at all these pictures of the homeless in San Francisco. There are so many, and THEY take care of the homeless. Each little bar at the bottom of the page is another page of photos. Sad

Can you guess this one?

What movie is this from?

Movie review

I have decided to start giving a brief discription and review of the movies we watch. I will rate them 1-10. If it is a 10 I would watch it over and over and not grow bored. If it gets a 1, then I wanted to turn it off and not waste my time. A 5 means I liked it but wouldn't watch it again within the next few years. If anyone cares, here is my first review!

Last night we watched Ghost World.

Geeky humor that really snarls pervades this movie riff on the legendary underground comic/graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Mopey high schooler Enid (Thora Birch) and her equally disaffected friend Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson) are a couple of slackers with a penchant for hurtful practical jokes. But when Enid begins to bond with one of their targets (Steve Buscemi), look out -- teen angst might give way to real feeling.

I liked it. It was funny and I could relate. Heck, I think anyone who was once a teenager (that's all of us) could relate. A little slow a few times (or was I just tired), but overall I think I will give it a 6 out of 10.

Thanks Netflix!

Think about it!

Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we'll see a Man
No hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shinning moment my heart ran away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Take hope because your love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime

Care to join us?

What is going on? Last night Eric and I decided to go out to eat, something we do often. Sizzler was out because the one by us is closed for remodeling. We decided on Chili's, but when we drove by there were many people outside waiting (there was something going on at the Pond). We went by a Indian place, closed for remodeling. Okay, we will go to Spoons, CLOSED! We started to feel as though something was going on.

Finally we decided to go to Red Robin. Eric thought the prices had gone up, and I said "Because they are the only place open anymore." What is going on with all these yummy places to eat. Okay, really I don't think Sizzler is yummy, but it IS really close!

It all just seemed something out of the Twlight Zone!

Little D

Practically ready for college. He is almost 6 months (a couple of days to go!). Finally a tooth has popped out and now he is sitting up. Yikes. Amazing how fast they grow. Lots of Eric's family got to meet him for the first time last night and of course everyone was saying how cute he is! (And he is too!)

I will post some more photos soon.

Anyone out there?
