SNOW DAY

Snow day from work! AMAZING! I love it! I vow to be productive and not waste the day away though so far I have spent it watching Days of Our lives and morning television though I did finally have Macy's fix my credit card so I can use the website to pay my bill.It was messed up for like a year which is annoying but I have put off contacting them and I did that finally this morning. So really if that is the only thing I get done today I will still rate today PRODUCTIVE!

New Years Ressies

So for New Years this year I am doing a resolution that is not easily judgeable as in I can't easily decide if I am achieving it or not so I like that. It is ambivalentish but good. You see I was thinking in many ways me and (e:paul) are very different and in many ways we are the same but the one thing that makes us very different that I admire in (e:paul) ( I can't even believe I am saying that haha) is this:

Generally in life (e:paul) believes anything is possible. To him nothing seems undoable or impossible. He comes up with something or thinks of something or an idea or an action or anything and just does it or reaches for it.

I on the other hand generally think everything is impossible. I get very easily able to think no that is not possible. Or that will never work out. Or that is just too crazy.

So for 2014 I am resoluting to be a little more like (e:paul) and try to think nothing is impossible... not even unicorn bicycles.

Davey's Christmas Gifts

So before (e:libertad) left to Florida for the holidays we exchanged our gifts. I definitely got way better gifts than I gave this year! I got an amazing beach bag from LLBean. I seriously have been wanting a nice beach bag forever and I think this one will really do the trick like no other. He also got me cards against humanity which I cannot wait to play again.

I got cellphone batteries which is super awesome so you can switch them out when you don't have a chance to charge your cellphone.

One gift was more of an investment sorta. He got me this complete dinner/serving set of rooster themed stuff. It is like cups, mugs, dishes, bowls, servers, like the whol complete set. It is pretty neat but I don't know that I would use it all the time though I really love some of the serving pieces. The thing is he bought them for me from a thrift store after he saw them but didn't think of them as a gift originally. he figured they are probably worth more than the $40 they cost at the store. We looked it up and it seems like for the entire set we could sell it for like $800. THE THING IS i really want to keep some of the pieces for seving ware. But (e:libertad) has very strong emotions about keeping the whole set together. Either we keep it all or sell it all as a set. I can't decide. Like it is really cool and maybe I would use some of it sometime, but it really is so much stuff we don't really have room for and money is always nice. I wish I could keep just some of it. We will see, no need to decide right now but I really like how some of the pieces look!

AND THEN THE GIFT THAT EXCEEDS ANY OTHER GIFT! THE SNOWMAN NATIVITY SET! I may have previously written about a $2000 nativity set I wanted but this one I think i wanted equally and it is only $7. I saw it in a catalog and really wanted it and (e:libertad) refused to let me get it but then he suprised me and got it for me for christmas! it was amaze balls! i love it!

Here are some pics.

Trip to Boston

So this weekend I am leaving half way through work tomorrow to drive to Boston to visit (e:Maureen). It is the longest I have ever driven by myself but it shouldn't be too bad , it is only like 7 hours. Hopefully it isn't a terrible blizzard where i die in the car though. I looked into flying but it was too expensive last minute (espeically because I just got new tires on Tuesday) and a lot of the flights had layovers which are stupid and I hate flying especially with no flying happines remedies on hand. I am actually sorta excited about the drive, I can just play my music and sing my little heart out for 7 hours! I do enjoy that! I just wish the trip was a little longer instead of 3 days but work is just to cray cray right now for me to be gone any longer!

Mob Wives

So I watch Mob Wives off and on but haven't seen it in a wihle. It is pretty amaze. I mean a little redic like if you are in the mob aren't you supposed to keep it a secret and not do a reality show about it? Anywho most of them are daughters of mob people so I guess it makes more sense. Anywho one of the main characters on the show is Sammy the Bull Gravano's daughter Karen . He was the guy who was like a mob boss who turned informant. Well this new season a girl from the Philadelphia mob family whose husband just got arrested and whose father in the law was murdered by a hit put out by Sammy the Bull has joined the show. And like she comes on and is all I hate Karen because her father killed my father in law blah blah blah fmaily drama. But anywho, she was all I will never be in the same room as Karen, I hope I never ever run into her.......SO YOU JOINED A REALITY SHOW THAT SHE IS ON! That seems like a great plan for avoiding her. So fake. i don't care though I will still watch. I love Big ANG! nothing will ever be as amazing as Big Ang! I WANT her to be part of my life so bad. Come on now, that fake tan, those fake lips, those fake boobs, and that voice...ooh that voice. LOVE HER

B Cup

As some of you who were over for dinner the other day noticed and as some of my friend's at work have pointed out, I really am breasty lately.I have no idea what is going on , I mean I am a little heavier than I was before but have not really gained much weight but whatever weight I have gained is in my chest. I really think I must be well on my way to a B cup at this point. It is out of control! I need it to stop. Maybe if i keep jiggling them they will lose fat?

Days of our Lives

EJ: You won't even give my sister a chance. You are always going to hate her.
Sami: Well let's see. She tried to kill my mother. She broke my step brother's heart at the altar by raping a priest who happens to be MY TWIN! How am I supposed to get over that!

Oh how I love the drama in Salem!

Fancy Movie Theater Recliner

So me, (e:jill) and (e:mk) went to see About Time at the AMC theater on Maple the other day. I had not been there in forevs and a day because it was old and run down and a hot uncomfortable mess but I had heard they renovated and had recliners now so we thought we would go check it out. Well, we get there and we buy our tickets and we were like 20 minutes early which is so unlike us but we didn't know how the whole experience was going to work out so we were a little early. Anywho, so then YOU GET RESERVED SEATS! like you pick your seats and they are numbered and you get to sit there. That was pretty cool. We got our popcorn and pop and there were two things I disliked about their refreshment situation.

1. They do not serve tubs of popcorn. Their large popcorn is a bag which is not nearly or at least does not seem nearly as large as the tub at the Regal. I really like eating out of a tub, period end of story . a bag will never be a tub. I mean really , if I"m going to eat out of a bag I might as well just eat off the floor. Ok i guess it wasn't period end of story because I had more to say but really not eating popcorn out of a tub really gets my goat.

2. They have those new coke machines where you can choose from 809 flavors. Unlike everyone else in the world I despise these machines. I see the benefit of having all these flavor choices but really it makes me life much much worse. First of all, I swear it always just tastes like a mix of a whole bunch of flavors because I swear it doesn't clear itself out. Then secondly, people spend hours , like literally 1.72 hours deciding on a flavor since there are so many choices. So what used to be a drink handed to you in like 2 seconds now it a 1.72 hour process of standing in line, finding your flavor and then getting a mixed flavor grossness. I really dislike these machines.

So then we get into the theater and get oru seats. Wow , theya re awesome and comfortable. They like fully recline and are large and super comfy. We took pics, so did like everyone else, everyone seemed really in love in the seats. I'm thinking they might get gross in the summer when people wet sweaty skin gets stuck to the pleather and you hear a lot of skin tearing stickiness but for now while everyone is wearing pants and sweaters it is really enjoyable. Theh people next to us even brought a blanket. T

There are far fewer seats now since they are so spacious so I recommend you order online ahead of time or call to make sure you get good seats.

OOOH wait I almost forgot the most important part. These seats make it hard to share pop and popcorn unless youa re really snuggling up. me mk and Jill usually split a popcorn and it would be almost impossible to reach from the seats on the side with someone in the middle holding it like in a normal theater. Luckily Jill thought of this and brought 2 tupperware bowls that we could split it into so we could all enjoy our popcorn. We had 2 pops and they both only have cup holders on the outside so if you are hsaring a pop you would have to reach across the other person depending on where you were sitting.

So overall I really like the new theater, super comfy and fun but there were some downsides in the refreshment area.

Oh and the movie. it was really good. it was by the people who did Love Actually and I didn't love it as much as I loved Love Actually actually but it was still good. It was about this guy and he can travel back in time but only to parts of his life and there are different rules and his dad can do it too. It had some really sad parts that you had to live over and over due to time travel which lead to a lot of crying on our part but it was enjoyable. I recommend it!

Cowboy Police Slapper

Dave and I were watching a movie last night and when the police were interogating this suspected murderer randomly this huge black man in a jockstrap and cowboy hat would come in and slap him across the face. It seemed so random and totally odd. But I looked it up and here is what the director said. By the by this was like a real movie with Al Pacino not some crazy random thing.

R: There's a giant black enforcer in a jockstrap who shows up in Cruising's interrogation sequence. What the hell was that?

WF: That was a real thing that happened -- constantly. Not just in cases involving crimes in the gay world. And that's the guy who did it. I forget his name. When they were interrogating a suspect -- and this is before Miranda rues and legal restrictions on cops to beat a confession out of somebody -- who they thought was guilty or wasn't talking to them, they had this big African-American cop come in in a jockstrap and a cowboy hat and whack the guy and walk out of the room. The witness would get into court and his lawyer would say, "The only reason he confessed is because they beat it out of him." The judge was often in on it, and he'd say, "Who beat it out of him?" "It was a big black guy in a jockstrap and a cowboy hat!" And the judge would say, "In a police station? You've gotta be kidding. Three years!" I would have to say that was standard police procedure, especially in the '60s.

It was really crazy!

Chickety China the Chinese Chicken

So i just read that it is now legal to import chicken from China. Which whatever you think about that it is what it is BUT here is the super weird part. The chickens have be born and raised in the US or Canada and then can be shipped to China for processing and then shipped back. HOW CAN IT BE CHEAPER TO SHIP CHICKEN ACROSS THE PACIFIC AND BACK instead of just processing it here. If the whole process took place in china I could maybe see how it oculd be cheaper but really raised here and then shipped there defeathered and cut up and shipped back? NO WAY! It seems so crazy!

Also, the party is in two days and i still have no ideas for a costume. This makes me fear it is going to be another Troll like year, that was a terrible costume year, even I can admit that.....

....maybe seeing this will give me inspiration to kick my butt in gear...
