One of my most recent ITunes purchases. I couldn't resist a dog song with John Travolta in it.

I also bought Go Speed Racer Go. heh

Oh and guess what is being released around my birthday. Woohoo!

I don't like AT&T, but I love their commercials. The last line said by the characters are hilarious.

These two are my favorites! )

Doesn't that just make your spine tingle with excitement? )

Our water was out in the neighborhood on Tuesday. I was making chicken dumplings and I think I might have ruined it because of the lack of water. I'm very sad.

So I got up early at 10:30 this morning. That is early because it's my day off. But so far I have done NOTHING! That's not true entirely. I have done a lot of work at my desk including balancing the checkbook.

My goals for the day include:
-vacuum the house
-carpet clean the living room
-clear off the dining table from all of my junk that I've put on it
-empty the dishwasher
-clean up the computer room

For my goals tomorrow:
-SHOPPING at Wal-mart for household items, the butcher, the farmer's market
I used to one stop shop at Wal-Mart, but the butcher and the farmer's market has better deals. I get a great deal for $35 at the butcher's shop called Meat for a Week, but it lasts us two weeks. My favorite is the roast. Mmmm
-Finish whatever didn't get finished today

I started researching PCOS again. It just makes me want to get the by-pass surgery. I used to think that was just for lazy people, but a) I am a lazy person and b) this is going to be such a whole life yo-yo battle.

I need to shift my priorities. When I'm home, the last thing I do is eat. Much less make sure I'm eating right. But that's needs to be my top priority. I've been doing much better lately with making sure I have fresh fruits and vegetables in the house. And I've found that I have really liked eating an apple after dinner. I made some delicious cooked apples Thursday night for dessert. My husband didn't think he'd like them, but he ate all of the leftovers!

I think right now I need to forget the cleaning and go shopping. I need to pick up food, eat something myself and come back ready to tackle the housework.

I think the PCOS will be either a great motivator or a great crutch and I need to decide which one I'm going to let it be.

TR related I think I'm going to have to FTB on some stuff. After this weekend, I'm just not in the mood to pick up a lot of older threads. I want to move on to new stuff.

I am obsessed with this song

Also I made my new LJ customizations to this song. And it's my Myspace profile song. I love that a) they sound so much like Relient K (melodies and piano) and b) they are from TN, Chattanooga to be exact.

ETA I forgot to dog update. I took Kira and Connor to the vet last week. Took them to my favorite vet. He hooked me up with this amazing ear cleaner that Connor LOVES! And he's been feeling so much better now that his ears aren't bothering him. He's been playing a lot more.

We took all four of them to the dog park yesterday. I brought Chakotay's soccer ball and some kid had a bunch of fun playing with him. Unfortunately, the kid didn't listen to me when I said not to throw the ball so I had to confiscate it for a short bit. Chakotay has high drive, even if he's fall over tired, he's going to go after the ball if it's thrown. And we saw three toy poodles in black, silver and white. They were so adorable! Matt even thought they were cute. They came over and said hello to him and were just so small and darling. (Eventually two St Bernards showed up and the poodles didn't get along with them.) We also saw Butter who is a mini poodle and is just to the softest, sweetest dog. We saw Butter last week too.

[ profile] bzzinglikeneon declared the song of the day to be Aha's Take on Me. This reminded me of the cover on the Baseketball soundtrack by Reel Big Fish. This reminded me of the High School music meme that went around that I said I'd do, but never had time to do.

The funny thing about that is next weekend is the big 10 year reunion. We're going because I still live in the same town. Seems silly to pass on the reunion when I live here, right? Right.

All of that to say: Here, have some music I liked in High School. Today's theme is 90s SKA. The best was when my friend would ska dance. It never failed to make me LOL.

This video is hilarious.

This song gets stuck in my head. And here they showcase all the genres of music in the 90s!

Reel Big Fish's Say Ten As Bill Compton said in True Blood, puns used to be the highest form of humor. This one has always been my favorite from the Turn the Radio Off album. Nothing against vegetarians, it's just a funny song. (And just in case he talks too fast for ya, have some lyrics.)

In other news, I forgot to give my Heroes review!

The Best Episode of the Season )
basildestiny: (Tired Chakotay)

The video that inspired me to want more GSDs.

I've made plans to go to the Trail of Doom!! This weekend. Could it have a cooler name? I'm not really the kind of person who likes being scared, but whatever. I'm doing it.

And since we're going to that, we might as well make plans to go to A Haunted House too, right?

There's also A Haunted Cave, but I don't know if we'll have the time or the money to go to all of these events.

My 10 Year High School Reunion is also in October. (It has also been 10 years for Matt, but he only went to his High School for a year so we aren't going to it.) That will be October 17th-18th so right in the middle of all of these events.

We went to Puleo's Grill yesterday. I'd never been and had heard mixed reviews. But I delightfully surprised. The food tasted fresh and delicious. Matt got fish and chips. You know those are either delicious and fresh or terrible and frozen/reheated. I had a seafood ravioli which was also delicious. The bread was fresh baked and the butter was softened! My only complaint was the the food came out too fast! And there was a lot of it. Both hardly complaints from my standpoint.

Now I'm off to cook dinner: spaghetti with eggplant.

So everyone (and their little dogs too) have posted about the debates. Mostly it's one said saying the other couldn't have possibly won. Nothing wrong with debate. We need debate and competition (even if I am not good at either).

But I'm just saying that the debates ... meh.

Now if one of the candidates started singing any musical number from any musical, well that would have determined the winner.

Some ideas that sprang to mind:

Seasons of Love from Rent
Tomorrow and/or the Finale from Annie
Defying Gravity from Wicked
Summer Nights from Grease
Breaking Free from High School Musical
I Don't Dance from High School Musical 2
Do Ray Mi from The Sound of Music

But honestly any song would have been awesome. Musicals are so much cooler.

Is there really anything cooler than ending on a big finish musical number?

I love musicals. If I wish I lived closer to a place where I could see them more often.

And thus, I have two lovely songs to share today before heading to sleepy times. These are from Wicked sung by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth. They are my favorite. I need to finish reading the book. And figure out a way to see the show in person.

This is totally a best friend song. Maile, I don't mean to pick your song, you just have great taste! I would definitely say this song summarizes my relationship with my first BFF.

And this is my favorite song. I just love their harmony.

I really should be asleep already, but I thought I would pick something up for dinner tonight instead of cooking because I had a bunch of errands to run. Now I'm sick from the garbage I ate.

ETA: I really need to watch this one too.

That's the Breaks

Continuing with the linking of weird dances.

A lot of people link the serious one. I prefer the outtakes. I think to know that life is beautiful, but I'm more of the Life is fuuuun type.

Where is Matt (2008)? )

Where is Matt (classic)? )

Hiro may at some point pull a stunt like this. He almost did it in Gideon's last EP, but he didn't feel like playing at the time.

So I was going through my Ipod. I have a lot of parody songs from Napster. That was one of my favorite things about the old Napster. Now it's done mostly on YouTube, but it's not the same. That was back in the day before viruses were a worry.

I found this one. Remember this?! Also the song, being sung in the song is from the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack with Claire Danes and Leonardo Dicaprio. I loved that version.

And in cased you wanted to hear that one: Everybody's Free )

Anyway, I found that lovely Star Wars Parody version of the Sunscreen Song. Here it is.
