♫ Random Monday: Entertainment, Mostly

Random Monday: On Wednesday.

I’m sorry, my random Monday plan isn’t working out too well, because we’ve been so motivated lately to write you things worth your time. ;) Read this week’s blogs, they’re GREAT!

You’re getting it today. Not because I’m not motivated or inspired, but because I’ve got random things floating around that I’m just sure you want to discuss.

~I’ve decided if I can make it through Monday and Tuesday, the rest of the week flies. Every Wednesday, I’m always like Whoa, only two more days!. I vote we just get rid of the first two. Or at least Tuesdays.

~Last time I was feeling random, I criticized the Twilight Series of books. It was completely unfair, considering I never even opened one. One of my dear friends pointed this out, and handed over the first book. I started it two nights ago, and am actually shocked, and pleasantly surprised at the quality of writing. Because of its attractiveness to younger crowds, I assumed it would be elementary. Quite the contrary. I will try to write a full review when I’m done…as of chapter 5, consider me hooked. There, I admitted it.

~I am not a fan of Christmas music earlier than three days before Christmas. It drives me crazy that it plays when I’m shopping, and at work, and on every radio station…so often that usually by Christmas, I’m tired of it. I’m also not a fan of Carrie Underwood. She’s quite hypocritical between her music and her lifestyle, BUT…BUT the girl can sing. She’s one of the best new artists in my opinion-based on her talent alone. That being said, her version of Do You Hear What I Hear is amazing. Listen:

~I think the “feels like” temperature should be illegal to talk about. The real temperature is good enough for me, and when it feels 30 degrees colder than that, I don’t wanna know.

~I watched the movie “Up” this week with my girls. Here’s the deal…I’ve cried at like two movies my whole life. Two. Armageddon is the main one…that part where the dad is on the moon or satellite or meteor or whatever it is, and has to tell his daughter goodbye forever and ever? Yeah. That part. Anyway…UP made me cry. Like, bawl. The first fifteen minutes of that movie yank hard on your heart. Then the movie turns to adorable, FAST. And, thanks to Disney being, well, Disney, it ended happy. 7 out of 5 stars from me. Buy it for your kids, you won’t regret it.

~Residentially challenged happens to be the new fancy word for homeless. Just in case you didn’t know.

~It has been a day of quotes, let me tell you. I’ll share a few gems I’ve found today. Some through Facebook, others just browsing along…

“Love isn’t what makes the world go round…it’s what makes it worth the ride.”

“Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak. Sometimes it just means you’re strong enough to let go.”

”Sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down so you can learn how to live right side up."

Yours Truly,
