I love movies. For two solid hours, I get to forget about my own reality for awhile. I sit back and wonder what I would do in this situation or that, what I definitely wouldn't have done, and how I would have reacted when faced with the same situation. Would I be the same 'me' that I am now, if I lived in a different part of the country, or the world? Some movies make me want to change things about myself, and this was one of em. Be more confident, love yourself for who you are, take down the walls and let other people love you, and so on....Good movies can completely mesmerize me, only to be jolted back to reality by the rolling of the credits and the house lights coming on. I don't know about you, but my long holiday weekends usually involve going to the movies. Rent and Pride and Prejudice came out today, Narnia and Memoirs of a Geisha come out on my birthday, and closer to Christmas will be The Family Stone, The Producers, Rumor Has It, and so many more. Man. I love movies.
Hope your Thanksgiving is filled with friends, family, good food, and if you're anything like me, good movies. =)

"Taurean Henderson was sure he scored on the final play of Texas Tech's game against Oklahoma. On television replays, multiple camera angles from the near side and one from behind and above the end zone seemed inconclusive. There were no angles from the far side of field, where the official who made the TD call was positioned. Stoops did not dispute the call and said it will not be used as an excuse for losing. "I didn't see it and I'm not going to sit here and criticize," he said. "We have a system in place and you hope that it works and it makes the calls that are correct."" (from the AP)
Well said Bob. I completely disagree, but well said. Henderson's freakin knee was DOWN and then he stretched the ball over the goal line.What's the point of being able to review a play, when you still call it wrong? Sigh. The game was well played by both sides. Granted, we had a few things go our way that we didn't fully take advantage of, but come on. What a ridiculous ending. This was definitely one of the most 'intense/exciting one second/horribly depressing the next' game I have seen in awhile (the ND/USC game comes in second). Sure wish we would've come down with that ball on that oh-so-important TT 4th down. I still argue that he didn't get that first down there...they definitely got a generous spot, even the announcers thought so. I'm hoping that this game will bump us back into the top 25. And maybe it will. Guess we'll find out on Monday.
I do not concede this game. It was not a fair win. And that's all I have to say about that.

Perhaps we should discuss the Texas election results from yesterday? Nah, everyone expected #2 to pass with flying colors. What about the steadily decreasing price of gasoline? Exciting, yes! Interesting or funny? Not so much. Oh! I know!! I don't think I've talked about my crazy martial arts skills in awhile. Yes!
For those of you who don't know, I am a student of Kuk Sool Won. It is a Korean martial art that "covers the entire spectrum of established Asian fighting arts and body conditioning techniques, as well as mental development and traditional weapons training." We do a lot of kicking, punching, joint-locks, throws, and forms (which are my favorite). We've also done a little weapons training, which is really fun too. I've been doing this for about a year now, and I'm a red belt (belt progression: white, yellow, blue, red, brown, brown/black, black). So I'm movin right along. Be afraid folks, be very afraid. In the past month, however, I have become quite the slacker. But as of last Wednesday, I am now back at it, which is good because we have our mid-quarter stripe testing next week. Hopefully I'll be ready for it! Man, Monday's class kicked my rear!! Well, actually, if you wanna be completely accurate, it kicked my ankle. It still hurts! I'm not hobbling around anymore though, no more gimpy!
Moral of today's story: Don't mess with Heather. She's a baaaaaad mamma jamma.

The lingerie shower was really fun, the best one I've been to. Sangria and cake, lots of very nice lingerie for Emily, and 2 toilet paper wedding gowns. Haha. The present I put together (from me and 2 of my friends) was saved until last. Must've been the feather tickler sticking out of the bag. I do believe that Emily turned 2 shades of red when she opened it. Hehe. Had a great time, and I got to see Annie! (another former roomie).
After that we picked up Christy, and then Nathan, and headed to the American Airlines Center in Dallas. We were a bit late, but still got decent parking. Our seats were definitely in the nose-bleed section (I think we were about 10 rows from the very top), but we could see everything perfectly. No need for binoculars. The game was incredibly good, pretty tight in the first half, but we pulled away towards the end of the 3rd, and then kept the lead steady in the 4th and finally blowin it up at the end of the game. Final score: 103-84. Dirk (aka THE MAN) had 34 points and 8 rebounds. We went and wandered around the West End after the game (haha--we paid a homeless man (who we mistakenly thought was the parking lot attendant) $5 to park and then got a parking ticket cause we didn't pay the automated teller), and had dinner and drinks at TGIFridays. AND on Sunday we had lunch at the Black-eyed Pea (my old alma mater, sigh, what a great 2 years that was). A great weekend!
- You must be an official roommate, not one who comes and goes, or stays for less than 2 months, you must actually be on the lease and pay the rent.
- You don't need to currently be dating anyone.
- There is no guarantee that if you are dating someone, that he will be the one you marry.
- Freshman year roommate: married the summer following our freshman year, now living in Japan with hubby and 3 kiddos.
- Sophomore year roommate: married during our junior year, no kids yet.
- Junior year roommate: married a year and a half ago, now living in San Antonio with hubby and baby boy.
- Senior year roommates: 1 is engaged and getting married in December, 1 is in a pretty serious relationship, and the 3rd is playing the field (yeah!). *My only explanation for only 1 out of 3, is that apparently the magic is only immediately good enough for one roommate.*
- My last roommate: got married a few months ago.

"Among the changes [you might] see are a better tan, an eyelid surgery that allows him to wink at his favorite lady and a more lean and defined physique" says a Mattell exec.
I'd like you to take a look at the progression of Ken from the 70s to the 2000s. The 70s and the 80s Ken fit the decades rather well in my opinion. The 90s Ken, however, what in the world? As one article quoted, "in the 1990Âs, Ken was the most garish of the Golden Girls." Thank you for being a friend, Ken. In the 2000s, Ken ran right over the 'metrosexual' line, right into San Francisco. Perhaps Barbie's little pink vette actually belonged to Ken, no wonder she left him.
