I love Halloween, but now when I'm feeling sick :( I really hope I get over this before the weekend, not like I'd be doing anything besides watching something on tv, a movie or writing a paper while doing all the above. But all the same, I do want to go to Target and get a couple of Halloween themed candles like the ones I searched all over for last year. And I want to pick up at least one Domo-Kun themed item *squee* Ha-ha, oh Domo-Kun, your beady-eyed and toothy mouth always makes me feel better <3

Most people tend to look forward to Christmas or their birthdays every year, not me. I can't wait for Halloween :) I kind of wish (and I say kind of because things have a way of happening if you talk about it long enough) it didn't come around just once a year or that it lasted a little longer then it does =/ I was at Target the other day to get some things I need and they already have their Halloween Alley up =D And the theme this year happens to be Domo-kun XD Once again most people tend to look forward to the day after major holidays like Thanksgiving to go shopping, not me. I can't wait for the day after Halloween because all of that wonderful wonderful themed candy is going to go on sale and I'll be there to pick up all the left overs :)

It's Labor Day weekend and while everyone will be blogging about the end of the DNC and McCain's choice to have a woman run as his VEEP (which is his vice president peep) I'm going to be blogging on the most important items of the week. Tim Gunn in an interview with OK! magazine called Miley Cyrus "too tarty" =O Tim Gunn is an amazing man and if I wasn't straight but fiercely gay I would be making it my life's work to Tim Gunns assistant, what a genius. And of Katie Holmes Cruise he said that she's grown more sophisticated and mature and baby Suri has gone from looking like a little farm girl to European royalty. When I read his glowing remarks about the Cruise household I couldn't help but feel a little smile on my face :) Like that one.

My Wisdom tooth is finally coming in =D How awesome is that? =D Well maybe you wouldn't be as excited as I am because 1)it is a little grotesque 2)it was completely random 3)you're likely not one to go around sharing exciting hygine news and 4)you're not me =D But seriously, my Wisdom tooth (and I make it a point to capitalize the W because my Wisdom tooth only adds to my depth of knowledge and wisdom) had been coming in since before last weekend and it had been bothering me so much. It didn't hurt, in that sense, but was more irritating then anything. But now I can hardly feel it, which is good because 3 down, 1 to go -_- God willing though I'll never have to have any of them pulled when I'm older, though if that were the case I would already have had them pulled when I was 21. I remember one girl in one psychology class who had to miss a whole week because she had to get one of her wisdom teeth pulled because... well I don't quite remember what she said because it all sounded like "uhm hmmm uhm uhm hmmm, y'know?" when she talked =/ Though with my genetics, I can either lose all my teeth by the time I'm 50 or I'll die a very old man with all my original teeth =D According to my mother, my grandfather on her side of the family died at the ripe old age of 80 something (on my dads side of the family 80 is like middle age) with all his hair and teeth. Of course he also died of TB and had been a very heavy smoker and drinker.

I've been reading Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis the last couple of weeks, and as good a book it is I always wondered why he choose that particular title. I mean it's clear what he means by till we have faces, as difficult as it would be to explain, but I understand what it means. And the more I read trying to understand where the story would go (even though I'll read it before) I couldn't seem to remember how the title fit into the story. Have I lost you yet? Good. But towards the end of the story, Oraul, the Queen of Glome (the pre-Christian kingdom where it takes place) seems to answer her own question about why Fate and God behave towards Man the way they do. I think I could very well take up pages trying to explain how the title fits into the story, but that's just me, I'm sure someone else could do it in a few lines. And then there's Paradise Lost, with it's yellowed and dog eared pages that I've had for less then a year but you'd think I had for much longer. It was written little more then 200 years ago but the story aim is so modern in a sense that you'd think someone wrote it today. Satan is cast out of Heaven and finds himself in Hell with the other Fallen angels when the story begins here and is soon after bravely volunteers to go and find "the new world" (being Earth) which God created was real. But the point of PL is supposed to justify the ways of God towards men, and after having read it as many times as I have I almost have a hard time believing that it was written all that time ago because what John Milton points out sounds like something you'd hear today. Well in PL Lucifer is made very human, in that he has thoughts and emotions like a person. And for the first half he's portrayed as this suffering soul who wants to go back to where he was before but knows he can't because he's gone too far and so pledges himself to evil and his ultimate doom, which he knows he can't escape, "Now consciencous wakes the bitter memory of what he was, what is, and what must be worse, (for) of worse deeds worse sufferings must ensue." I'll stop here because I've completely forgotten where I was headed with this.

But before I finish I just thought that this was the funniest thing, the scene where the cowboy is falling down while riding a nuke (2:19). I laughed so hard when I saw that because I had seen that somewhere else, though I won't say here ^^;

I never honestly thought I would be one who couldn't wait for classes to start up again, but I am. I think it's just not having much to do during the day that gets me. Sure there's work, but that's early morning and only for a few hours, not that I'd want to be there all day. I almost thought about getting a second job, and likely would have if classes didn't start in 2 weeks. But oh how I'm relieved that classes are going to start up again. I would've taken something over the Summer but then again I don't think I would've wanted to have had that stress on me.
So I've been imerrsing myself in tv for the better part of the Summer, and I don't see how people can do that for a living. But after seeing Kathy Griffins show I think I know how they do it. People who have no lives or no willingness to do real work go to LA to work as personal assistants (nothing personal against personal assistants), or as the assistant to the assistant. Now I can understand how a business man would need an assistant, but someone who makes their career from being on tv? How hard is it to organize and plan your own life, much less day/week, that you'd need to hire somone who started off walking your dogs or someone who spent so much time on Myspace leaving you comments on how awesome they think you are. Because that's the typical assistant I've seen hired on most reality tv shows. Assistants who were their dog walkers (a job I think is rediculous in itself) or a really big girl who spent all her free time on Myspace. I can't see how people don't think Kathy Griffin isn't hot.
So what I'm really trying to say is, I can't wait for classes to start again.

This week hasn't sucked per say, it's just been one of those weeks. Monday could've been better, but that was because it was Monday and if we've learned anything from Grafield (no, that's right) there's nothing good about Monday. So I've signed up for a few classes and I'm probably going to sign up for one more before tomorrow, I've learned a little more about my car and worked out a budget that'll let me put money away out of every check to put into a complete overhaul that I can eventually do by my next birthday, I hurt my right shoulder at work (big surprise there) so I took Wednesday off and the best thing about taking a day off in the middle of the week is how it seems to go by faster. And when I took my eye exam yesterday, Dr Aiken (and yes, his first name is Clay) told me that I scored 100% on the eye movement part of the exam. You know the part where you have to cup one eye and follow a red dot with the other and keep track of when and how many green dots you see besides the red one. "I'm surprised because no one's every gotten every one before." So later today I'm going to head back so I can pick out some new frames for my updated prescription which are supposed to be so powerful I'll be able to see through anything O_O

This has been the worst weekend in a long time, nuff said. I got my 50 dollar (very taxable) gift card sooner then I thought I would and I pretty much spent it all in almost a week. Though to be honest most of it did go to fill up half a tank of gas in my car and the rest I blew at It's A Grind and Coldstone :)
One thing I've learned about Spanish is that it can open doors for you, much more when you're ordering food from a Mexican version of Costco and the people making the food speak more Spanish then English. So earlier today when I went to Fiesta Food Warehouse and ordered the Mexican version of the burger, I asked for it entirely in Spanish and even said the typical 'thank you so much, ma'am'. The woman was so surprised but grateful she told me to wait a minute and gave me another torta free of charge. Sure it's not much when they're only 3 something a piece, but still :)

Plastic surgery isn't something most people associate with men  but I was watching something on Discovery and one of their new shows, Taboo, was talking about how more men in the United States are getting peck implants. Well peck, thigh, butt and bicep implants. I mean I know about how some guys will get chin implants but I didn't really know about peck implants =/ That's really kind of, I don't know, stupid. But I guess it does explain a lot of how you'll see guys on tv with very thin arms and really developed pecks. Anyway, classes start in a month and I honestly can't wait for it to begin :D

It's been a weekend since Dark Knight was released and it feels like the hypes already died out, for the most part anyway. I'm not really in any major hurry to see it, regardless how good it was supposed to be, I mean come on, it's just a movie. It's the same deal with video games, or rather some guys at work and video games. When Halo 3 came out a couple guys took the day off so they could stand in line for it's midnight release 9_9 I'm not saying I don't play games, but I'm not going to go so far as to wait in line just to be the first in line for my copy, I can wait if I really wanted to. Anyway, the only reason I'd miss a day of work is to just sleep in and take a real day off, I'm getting a little sick of getting up at 1 am everyday, and really for what? >_> When I did the math I think I can get by pretty well if I work just 3 and half hours a day, that'd be enough to pay my bills and everything else with just enough left over to blow on a movie or eat out on the weekend.

I'm slightly pissed, my check is short 2 hours. I know 2 hours isn't much, but it really adds up especially when they deduct everything out of it. And yes, the greatest movie of all time is coming out tomorrow, and if you're lucky then it comes out tonight at midnight. You know what movie I'm talking about- Space Chimps! X0 I can't wait to see that movie, if only I had enough money :( And some guys at work (the ones who try to act badass because they don't shower daily, literally) were talking about going to see Dark Knight tomorrow after work. Now that wouldn't be such a bad idea if only for the simple fact that we get off work at 9 am, and the first showing wouldn't be till almost 11 am. So if you can use your digital extremities you can figure out that if you went to see Dark Knight at 11 you wouldn't get out till almost 1 in the afternoon. And if you've been working all morning and sweating in this lovely California weather, well that's a no brainer. And then another bunch of guys I work with were talking about going way later, as in a couple weeks after it's release. Why would anyone want to wait 2 weeks to see a movie that's been hyped for months on end instead of waiting in line with fanboys who look like they'd better fit in the Comic-con line? Because fanboys are more annoying then fangirls, plus fangirls are better to look at. Really, when I think about when I saw Episode III (that's 3 in Roman numerals, not Episode aye aye aye 9_9) when it first premiered there were so many loud and annoying screams coming from the audience as soon as the screen went blank I thought I was going to hit someone (happy thoughts, happy thoughts) you imagine what it's going to be like the minute the credits roll and Heath Ledgers name appears or the first minute the Joker comes onscreen? *WHOOOOO YEAH* intermittent clapping followed by more hollering *GREATEST ACTOR EVAR* Yeaaaah, something like that, or at least that's how it'll be around here :( And yes, ABBA rocks, but even more so when it's mixed with a Dark Knight trailer :)

I'm looking at my icon and as funny as it is when you know where it came from, I can't remember what episode it was from =/
So Dark Knight comes out in 2 days, and honestly I'm not as hyped as I thought I would be about it coming out in 2 days. I mean that's only 32 hours and 16 minutes before the midnight release. Totally not hyped about it U_U But really, I hope that his movie hasn't been so overhyped since the release of the first trailer that it's going to completely shoot below everyone's expectations, like a certain other film did *cough*Episode 3*cough*. I really thought Revenge of the Sith sucked, badly :( That movie was overhyped so much before it was released that most everyone had high expectations for it, and instead of being the most dramatic and dark of the triliogy it pulled a Titanic :( Even I got into the hype when I read some of the supposedly "leaked" script, and yeah from what I read it could very well have been an R rated movie, if only for the sheer drama of it all. Of course the wooden acting didn't help it either. Or the editing, or the script, or the directing.. 9_9 Far as Dark Knight goes, I'm going to put off seeing it until sometime in August, because then I can let the hype die down a bit and then I can see it with someone I really want to see it with. And I think it's funny that my mom still wants to see it even after I showed her a trailer (the one I posted last time) just to see if it was something she still wanted to see. "Does it depress you?.. How alone you really are." I guess she's going to see it with her friends this weekend all the same.
