Mikey, DJ interviewer: How do you think the new record compares to your old, classic stuff?
Billy Mack: Oh come on Mikey, you know as well as I do the record's crap.
Aurelia: [in Portuguese] I will miss you. And your very slow typing... and your very bad driving.

Mark: With any luck, by next year - I'll be going out with one of these girls. [shows pictures of beautiful supermodels]
Mark: But for now, let me say - Without hope or agenda - Just because it's Christmas - And at Christmas you tell the truth - To me, you are perfect - And my wasted heart will love you - Until you look like this [picture of a mummy]
Mark: Merry Christmas.
Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is I'm in love and I was before she died, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Daniel: [laughs] Aren't you a bit young to be in love?
Daniel: Oh, well, okay, right. Well, I mean, I'm a little relieved.
Daniel: Well, because I thought it would be something worse.
Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel: Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.
Okay, actually, I realize I could go on and on and on. I love every single minute of this movie. I am obsessed. Thank you so much Jenn!!!

Saturday, I worked a bit in the morning until Stephen called me and begged me (yes, begged me) to come home early so we could start golfing earlier. We were worried we were going to get rained out. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon. After about five holes, we met up with some guys from church who waited on us and we finished our game with them. We then went home to relax, take a nap, and do some school stuff. We went to Steve's for dinner and to watch UFC 83. We had the best hamburgers and I finished my book before the fight, so it was a good night! Yesterday was nice too. Church was great as usual, and then we went to Granny and Granddaddy's to celebrate mom and Emma's birthdays with steaks and ice cream cake. Delicious!!
I had lunch today with my lovely sis. We Chick Fil-A'ed of course, and then made a pit stop at Fifi's. I love those lunches!
We just had an extremely hard rain that lasted approximately seven seconds. Like, before I could stand up to tell Kathee it was raining, it was over. Cheap! Stephen re-pinestrawed (???) our yard on Saturday so I'm happy for the rain. I hate the bushy look of pinestraw when it's first laid down.

How cute is she!?!? So this day of work is DRAGGGGGGING for me. I haven't really talked about the NY trip, so I will do that now! Mom, Jenn, and I are flying to New York from tomorrow to Saturday to celebrate mom's 1 year liver anniversary and early birthday. I am excited mainly because I haven't been to NY in about 8 years. That's so crazy! So we are planning on doing whatever mom wants to do. One night we are going to see Rent definitely. The other nights are just kind of up for grabs, for whatever else we want to do.
I hate packing for trips. I'm always terrified that I'm going to forget something. Like it would be the end of the world if I left my toothpaste here. But I can't help it!! I'm always scared that I won't pack enough books also. It's a curse.

Here are the rules:
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb.com and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike each out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating and that’s no fun.
But for now, let me say - Without hope or agenda - Just because it's Christmas - And at Christmas you tell the truth - To me, you are perfect - And my wasted heart will love you - Until you look like this. [picture of a mummy] "Love Actually", by Jenn
2. When I was in flares, you were in nappies.
3. You have the whitest white-part-of-the-eyes I've ever seen. Do you floss?
4. There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
5. Those French. They hate us, they smoke, they have a whole relationship with dairy products I don't understand.
6. Guys, a woman's purse, alright, it's her secret source of power. Alright? There are many dark and dangerous things in there, that we, the male species, should know nothing about.
7. Here, you should try this out. Put this here. Swivelly door. Waffleonians can come in and out now.
8. Bob: There was a moment...when I used to blame everything and everyone... for all the pain and suffering and vile things that happened to me, that I saw happen to my people. Used to blame everybody. Blamed white people, blamed society, blamed God. I didn't get no answers 'cause I was asking the wrong questions. You have to ask the right questions
Derek: Like what?
Bob: Has anything you've done made your life better?
Lower your flags and march straight back to England, stopping at every home to beg forgiveness for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder. Do this and your men shall live. Do it not, and every one of you will die today. "Braveheart", by Jenn
10. You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

April Fool's Day used to be my favorite holiday growing up. I would plan for weeks on what I was going to do to terrorize my classmates and family. I remember one year I got sick and had to be out of school on April 1, and I spent the whole day crying. Yikes! When I got to college, the jokes got to be a little funnier. One year, Mary and I went to our neighbors' apartment, because they never locked their door, and we turned off their electricity at the breaker box. They came over after classes asking if our power was out, and we searched their apartment with them "trying" to figure out what had happened. It took them like two hours to realize what was up. Meanwhile, we had also rearranged their apartment, tied their sink sprayer down with a rubber band, and I can't remember what all else. That was probably the hardest I've ever laughed at an April Fool's joke!!
So, you can't get rid of me that easily. I do love blogging, and I can't wait to continue on in it.

I was telling her how I can't believe that next week we'll be in New York already, and then at the beginning of May I'll be going to see Keely graduate, and then the next week is when I'll be starting school. Yay! I'm really excited about my classes so far. But thinking about all that is going to be going on, I've got to make a decision. Unfortunately, after the month of April, I am going to shut down my blog. I just simply feel that with school, trying to spend time with my hubby and family, work, church, etc., I just won't be able to put as much effort into it as I'd like to. And I hate looking at someone's blog who never posts. So it looks like I'll probably just delete the whole thing. I don't think blogger.com would keep it up very long anyway.
But have no fear! I will give you some other great reading material throughout this month so that you will have many other ways to procrastinate on the internet! I will miss blogging but that's life!
