Most Vexing

Thanks to KA for bringing the whiteness of my blog to my attention. I have no idea what has happened. I will have to investigate immediately. All of the html code seems to still be there. Bear with me in the plain-ness while I figure this out.

The Cultural Phenomenon of High School Musical

Last night Lindsay, Rebecca and I all watched the premiere of High School Musical 2. It should be said that I have not seen the ridiculously popular original High School Musical. However, I do love a musical and it was a lot of fun although very very very cheezy. So I'll probably have to check out the first one. All that being said, Vanessa Hudgens giggle made me want to gouge my eyes out it was that annoying and she seemed to giggle constantly through the entire movie for no apparent reason whatsoever. The other star of the show Zac Efron was not as annoying. But he is entirely too pretty for me. And is it me or does he look like he is constantly wearing makeup.

My New Obsession

***I have to fix my post from last night, I was in the middle of updating and lost Internet access and it posted only part of what I wrote. So here we go again.***

I apparently missed this song being played at the end of "The Hills" or so Mallory and Lexi tell me, but I discovered it today on my own and now I'm quite obsessed with this

In other news, I finally saw Jackson, that I had been reading so much about here, live and in living color yesterday and he did not disappoint. He is even more adorable as his mother claims him to be on the blog. And today I get to meet another blog baby Mason and can hardly wait. Now if I could only somehow found a way to meet little P, the trifecta would be complete.

How Does Something So Little Cause So Much Pain

The other night I was outside of the Guilhall talking with Quinn for maybe 15 minutes. In that time I got 4 mosquito bites while of course, Quinn got none. I have two on my hand and one on each foot. And they are driving me crazy. My sleep was so restless last night because I found myself waking up in a fit of scratching. There were points during the night when it felt like my thumb was on fire from the bites and the scratching.

I seriously can't stand these little creatures and I know there must be some good in them some where, but I just simply fail to see it. And why is it that Quinn and I could be standing right next to each other in a sea of mosquitos and he would come out unscathed and I would have hundreds of bites all over me. It bugs. No pun intended.

Thanks to Ry for the above. Don't be surprised if you see Google Ads popping up on my blog soon. Let's be serious, we can use the money.

Quinn has been up for 33 hours and counting now with really no end in sight. He claims he won't be able to sleep until Thursday at 5 pm but I think he will cave before then. At least, for his sake, I hope so.

And for all you vampire lovers out there...you know who you are...I found this little delight online tonight as well.


Late To The Party

Tonight I downloaded Dreamgirls from the XBox. Why didn't I heed KA's advice that she gave so long ago (I tried posting a link to her post but Youtube won't let me). I am so mad at myself for not watching this sooner. I blame it on the fact that although I've always liked Beyonce's music, I've never been a huge fan of her public persona and I guess I thought watching a movie with her would just bug. I was wrong. I loved this movie. I wasn't even that big of a fan of Jennifer Hudson during Idol but I definitely see why she won the Oscar. She deserved it. And I absolutely loved the song "Listen" so much that I went straight over to Youtube and found this delight.

The Return of the Hallowed XBox

About three months ago our Xbox 360 finally went kaput. We called Microsoft and asked how much it would be to fix since we have had it more than 1 year and the warranty had expired. It was going to cost around $150 dollars. I said forget it. We would try to find somewhere around here to fix it. So I googled repair shops and found one that said they did consoles. So we drove the 30 minutes to the shop and they had it for 1 week supposedly doing a diagnostic. Let's just say that after 7 days they hadn't even looked at it. I had to get a little stern with them and finally they looked at it. Well, the guy would never return phone calls and his maybe 12 year old son manned the shop. Finally after much persuading I got a call back and all the guy said was that it could not be fixed. So we drove back down and picked it up. We were at a lost as to what to do. Then maybe a few days later Microsoft announced that because they have been having so many problems with the 360's getting the same error they were extending the warranty on all 360. Great, we thought. Except that ours had now been torn apart which often voids the warranty. But we called Microsoft and they said it was no problem. So we sent off the 360. Well, today we finally got our new 360 in the mail. I was so excited. I could not wait to get it set up. I have really missed XBox Live and my favorite games like Zuma and Boom Boom Rocket. But I did have this moment of realization today that I have officially been turned into a gamer. How did this happen?

Nancy Grace

I've been wanting to write about this since Monday but of course haven't gotten around to it until now. What better time to blog than 5:30 ish in the morning when you can't sleep.

I am now an official Nancy Grace fan. Many of you might know her from Headline News and CNN. I've seen her many times and have always enjoyed her, but Monday she was a guest host on The View and now I love her even more. This woman has morals and you just have to love her for that especially since you rarely see that on TV today.

First, I was very taken with how genuinely happy she seemed that after 47 years of being single she recently got married and is now pregnant with twins.

But I really fell in love with her during "Hot Topics." First, they started by discussing Usher's called of wedding to his pregnant girlfriend. They panel discussed how the mother wasn't a fan etc... and there might have been some disagreement about what type of wedding to have etc... All Nancy kept on saying was "Well, they should have thought about all of this before they got pregnant." Amen.

Second, they tackled Richard Branson, billionaire and owner of the Virgin empire. In some recent interview he had mentioned that he smoked pot with his son and how it helped to make them become close. The panel discussed whether or not this was good parenting. To be fair, none of the panel thought this was good parenting, however not necessarily for the same reasons Nancy. Joy for instance thought that the parent needs to be the parent and shouldn't engage in behavior like that with your child, suggesting that if you are a pothead you should hide it from your child. Nancy however was appalled that no one had brought up the fact that Hello??? it is illegal, no matter if you do it by yourself or with your child!! Amen, again.
