I don’t have to tell some of you that I am completely obsessed with Channing Tatum, I mean YUM! His new movie Dear John is coming out on February 5th and I can’t wait! I read the book and am 100% positive that I will be blubbering through most of the movie! Anyways…I thought since I can’t wait to see this movie, I would review a couple of movies that we rented this weekend!

Gamer: Gerard Butler is so very hot that the wierdness of this movie can be overlooked in my eyes. Basically this guy invented a real life Sim’s game using people by implanting something in their brains so they can be controlled. That stemmed into creating a video game using death row inmates as pawns (because who cares if they die anyway, I don’t personally agree with that but it is just a movie) well…it’s very creepy and is sad to see what technology can do to our way of life if were not careful. Anyway Gerard Butler is the main character who beats all the levels and is trying to make it back to his wife and daughter. All in all it was an ok movie, just a little bit wierd.

Surrogats: Ok, this movie is with Bruce Willis and I didn’t actually want to see it, but it turned out to be an OK movie. It’s about normal people plugging in at home and controlling their surrogate bodies that don’t age or get sick and can basically be shot or even jump off a bridge and you still won’t die. This is also very eye-opening to see where technology can take us and the damage it can do. Anyway the creator of the surrogates is playing both the good and the bad sides of this movie, and a technology is built that can destroy surrogates AND the humans behind them. So basically Bruce Willis has to stop the bad guys…all in all it was ok…something to think about and see exactly how technology can take over a world.

I also watched Step-Up this week, which I love because of the dancing and….you guessed it Channing Tatum 🙂

If you have any ideas for movie reviews let me know, I would be happy to rent and review them if I can!

Wedding Planning Anxiety!

January 20, 2010 at 10:37 am (Daily Ramblings)

Ok, so Mel and I got engaged on Thanksgiving day 2008 and we are getting married this June 2010. We’ve had quite a bit of time to get all the main things in order which we have….or so I thought. I just recently started thinking about the little things. The little things are starting to pile up, and I’m beginning to get nervous! I am not someone who likes to do things at the last minute, so waiting to order the cake a couple of months before the wedding is terrifying to me! We have to get the cake cutters, champagne flutes, gifts for everyone, personalized M&M’s for our favors, marriage license, and our unique guest book! I’m sure I’m missing a few things, but it seriously is starting to keep me up at night thinking about the little things. I started having dreams, each dream is a different scenario of our wedding and EACH time I’ve forgotten something CRUCIAL, like the DJ or the flower girl’s dress (which I’m not sure why I was responsible for in the dream, but thats another issue.) Mel and I secured our officiant last night, we have to go over the little details for the ceremony but our date is set in stone! Now we HAVE to secure the DJ. The DJ is the dad of Mel’s friend  and we had a paper to fill out of all the stuff they needed, and because I couldn’t think of the song Mel and I would dance to until last month….the paper has gone missing. So now we have to get in touch with them for another paper to fill out and hopefully they didn’t give our date away…not to mention paying for everything ourselves! Just a little bit anxious these days! I will definitely keep you all in the loop…and any suggestions would be AWESOME!

Happy Hump Day!!

I’m going back…waaaay back!

January 13, 2010 at 10:09 am (Daily Ramblings)

Ok so I’ve finally set my mind to it that I am going back to school! Yes by the title it sounds as if I am going back in time or something equally awesome, but I am deciding to further my education and I feel that is a superb thing! I know that I want to do editorial work and maybe some writing and teaching, so I am going to be looking into an english/communications degree. I am looking into english, because well as I’ve said a thousand times before I LOVE TO READ and I am hoping to gain some in depth understanding of what I read!

Ok…now that you know my plans, I am not going to be able to go back…(waaaay back) until after the wedding in June, because although I know I can be a lot like superwoman, I know that I will not have full concentration until after the anxiety driven chaos wedding!

In other news, Mel has been really tired lately, so tired that he fell asleep before the first hour of American Idol season 9 premiere was over! CRAZY I know! So hopefully it’s just the antibiotic that he’s taking that’s making him tired, otherwise I will have to delve further into his psyche…or maybe just take him back to the doctor!

It’s Wednesday…HUMP Day! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Wrapping it up!

January 11, 2010 at 12:19 pm (Daily Ramblings, Gotta Love Men!)

It seems a lot of people are undecided about the Kindle because who doesn’t love the idea of a fresh new book!! Thank goodness I am not alone! One thing that I love about it is that no matter where I am I can start a new book, if I hear about a book I can look it up on the spot and see how much it will cost and read the description! Also the books are all under $10 which is delightful!!

Anyway, I took a few pictures at New Year’s but I can’t post any of them because they are decidely too naughty or their are a ton of people in it and I don’t know if I have permission to post! I have one picture, that is the aftermath…


The only thing missing in this picture is the beer and Hypnotic! Anyway it was a crazy night!! We had a great time, and considering this is the one time per year Mel and I drink we went to town! (Also note that we had this party in a hotel so no one drove home or was even close to leaving the party drunk!!) I was sick all last week, so that is why it took me forever to post about the party!

I can’t believe it is 2010, and I am getting married in like 5 1/2 months! Time flys, thats for sure! Mel bought a new shirt, he thought it was funny:


I’m still not sure wether or not to laugh or cry about the shit eating grin he has on his face, because he was wearing it in public! The little things in life amuse him!
