I guess I'm helping fill out the all-cousins band?

Post-bills, maybe even post-savings, baby is mine.

line of the day: "This is the first time I've really noticed your eyes. They're freaking me out."

I look so much more like myself with glasses than with contacts.

One more factoid:

Watching that many movies will help you top the company Oscar race, even if you don't win anything beyond bragging rights and a Twix.

REPEAT [checkmark]

Just to put my final two cents in, but "Falling Slowly" needs to win the Oscar, as it still makes me cry without even seeing the movie at the same time.
Do we miss me being a positive person? (it was a long week)

Things I learned from attending tweleve hours of Best Picture nominees yesterday:
* I have the same typewriter as James McAvoy's character in "Atonement," which puts be about half a degree closer to him.

* Another way to be closer to Mr. McAvoy: winning a poster through Pride and Prejudice knowledge (thanks, ADP!)

* There's apparently a slew of mystery novels out in the world set from Jane Austen's perspective. This is way cooler than all the novels stealing the P&P characters and telling the story from their point of view.

* I probably missed 1/5 of "No Country for Old Men" because I was shielding my eyes from blood shed.

* Also, you shouldn't believe the time listing on your ticket. I missed the last speech of "No Country" because I thought there was a half hour to go.

* I can go through two large popcorns and sodas, but I'll pay for it after.

* George Clooney must have some contract thing now that he has to play poker in every movie.

* I don't know if I understand the genius of PT Anderson, but I see it in Daniel-Day Lewis.

* Anyone who wants to send me a guitar (or, alternatively, the "Juno" soundtrack) may do so at their earliest convenience.

all manner of emotions

I've had this up for the past, oh, thirty minutes or so unable to put into coherant words this day. It started with a feeling of dread, fulfilled the feeling of dread, fulfilled it again, and ended with the most dysfunctional performance of Peter that we've had yet. In a way, Peter actually saved the day from total loss; if things hadn't been so laughably atrocious, I don't know what would've happened.

Here's where I'm going to become all vague-like.

I respect people's ability to make decisions for themselves, even as those same might affect [all] those around them. I maintain the right not to agree with those decisions, or even just how they're handled. I promise to [try] not to hold it against people afterwards, at least not for long.

Also, I promise to start getting SQ G right or else stop attempting it all together. (That's a seperate thought.)

Happy Valentine's Day, chitlins, and enjoy your half-off candy shopping!

Oh, Phil

It's not like we have real winter here anyway, but it's always good to keep up on your favorite second-tier holidays.

(seriously though, I would let you all know if I was thinking about changing jobs)

The Good:
-Strawberry cheesecake flavored yogurt, which I could eat until the end of time
-rediscovering favored soundtracks while working on filling the iPod
-actually having money to put into savings, two months running (yay, unofficial resolutions!)

The Bad:
-CD player suddenly losing ability to autopause before playing next track, mid-show...but only sometimes so it can't be anticipated until WAS THAT JUST THE NEXT CUE?
-inability to fall asleep prior to 1 a.m.
-8 a.m. call

The Eh:
-newest edition of Artsearch making me feel overqualified for most jobs I'd attempt; underqualified for all the jobs I'd be interested in
-being close to the end of "Sense and Sensibility," thus soon to finish the most boring Austen ever
-false alarms
