A Few Notes

Okey-doke, a few comments before I am banished to the land of the bathroom to scrub tiles in preparation of the in-law invasion tomorrow (actually, I think I lucked out in the in-law department -- they're terribly nice, supportive people who think I'm da bomb, but houseguests are houseguests and anyone who stays with us for 7 days in gonna annoy the crap outta me; as my husband says, "whoa, that's gonna give you a headache"; apparently, I suffer from family induced migraines).

1. I forgot to tell you that I also added My Chemical Romance's songs "Teenagers" and "Dead" to the running playlist. Both are swexcellent for running! (That's "sweet" + "excellent" = since "swawesome" died last week, I needed to find a replacement -- and this time? Let's try to use it in moderation so it has a longer shelf life.)

2. "Cloverfield" was, quite frankly, the shit. For those frustrated by the previews, relax. There's good reason why the previews are so ambiguous -- allow the movie to provide the thrills and intensity that it sets out to do. Trust me. It's pretty cool. Plus? It was only 75 minutes long. Perfect. More movies could learn from that kind of editing (*cough* "Pirates of the Carribbean" *cough*).

3. Um...I had 3 things? Huh, guess not.

Well, I'm off to inhale Tilex and finish the laundry! What fun my MLK day has in store for me! Hope everyone else is enjoying their 3 day weekend!

Oh wait, I do remember my 3rd thing: "Water for Elephants" is really good so far. Pick it up today and get started on it. It's swexcellent! (Well, I never claimed to be very good at moderation.)

Good luck with the cleaning. Don't go too overboard. Sounds like they already love you! I'm having holiday too, off to the gym!

Be careful to annunciate that W in swexcellent!

Wes said...

I was gonna say, maybe the Tilex would give you such a headache for the week you wouldn't notice :-)

swexcellent is a good substitute for swawesome. Of course you could just run swawesome into the ground. damn the naysayers.

We had movie night with some friends this weekend but couldn't decide on a movie. SO, the ladies opted for
the Kite Runner (swawesome!) and our hubbies saw Cloverfield. They, too, loved it and said they were glad the previews didn't give everything away.

I was VERY disappointed in Cloverfield.

VERY.

Marcy said...

OOoooooo I'm diggin "swexellent" I will have to incorporate that baby into my everyday blog lingo.

O.M.G I can only imagine having the IL's stay for a whole week. But, since you dig em it shouldn't be too too bad ;-) Good luck! Hopefully they don't know you have a blog :P

swexcellent is swawesome, fo' shizzle.

It doesn't matter how great the guests: "fish and company stink in 3 days."

P.O.M. said...

Family induced headaches are quite common. "They" say that beer helps. Not sure who "they" are, but you know - "They" are usually right.

Mendy said...

I still like swawesome...

BooHoo, we didn't have the day off. Sucked, big time.

miss petite america said...

i agree with June. cloverfield. ugh.

i seriously don't see what the big deal was.

Laurel said...

I thought I was the only one who felt that way about Pirates of the Caribbean. A little bit too much...ALL of them.

Good luck with the in-laws. Seven days is seven days no matter how you look at it.
