Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 106

Guess what is on sale now? I feel like I have been waiting forever. Movie tickets to The Hunger Games!! Yep. I am totally going to the midnight showing. I can't wait. It looks like it is going to be awesome.

It was nice to have the Holiday weekend. I usually am gone somewhere with an extra day off... and even though I still kind of wish I did go somewhere... it was nice to be home and get things done. Like... I am finally redecorating my room. It is almost done. Got a new bed and everything. A real grown up bed. ha ha. I feel like I have been in the single bed for so long and being almost 30... even though I am still single, I feel like I deserve an awesome bed. Anywho... I'm loving it and I will have to post pictures of my room as soon as I am done.

Tomorrow is my co-worker Alex's last day. Since I will not be in the office... we went out to lunch today. We went to a place that I had never been before called "Four Seasons Hot Pots" I think. It was chinese food... but like no Chinese food that I have had before. It was an interesting experience. They sit you at a table, each table got a little pot and stove with boiling water/sauce. Each table had a different sauce. I sat at the mild table. Anyway, you go to the buffet and you get a plate of raw meat, veggies, noodles, eggs... whatever, it is all raw. You then come back to the table and throw all of your raw food into the pot and wait for it to cook. That would be fine and dandy... if you didn't share the pot with the rest of your table. I found it impossible to not only pick out what I put in... but even remember what I put in vs what everyone else put in. I ended up just dishing out whatever I picked up. Thank goodness I am not a picky eater. The food was good, but nothing I would crave. It was interesting to have the experience though... try out a place like that. And as always lunch with my co-workers is always a good time. We are sure going to miss Alex though. It just won't be the same.

Wes and I worked more on our CD. Recorded 3 more songs. Not bad. We are still taking song suggestions. One of my friends requested Africa... and we may just do it.

So on Sunday night there is a group of people in the ward that have started a little tradition of watching a different Disney movie each week. Tara and I started going a few weeks ago. It reminds me of when I used to do that with Brad, Nate and Steve... except that we would turn on the subtitles when the songs came on so that we could sing along. ha ha. Tara and I will probably continue to go every week.. partly because I think I will be providing a lot of the movies and partly because we like the Disney movies and have not watched them in a long time so it is fun to see them again. However, I think we mostly will continue to go for entertainment. Each week there is such an interesting crowd of very different people. I love people watching. Two weeks in a row now foggy glasses has sat in between Tara and I, so we end up texting each other during the whole movie. Wait.. we would do that anyway. It is really funny to hold a conversation together when we are sitting right next to each other in a room full of people watching a movie and we are observing all of the different things going on and talk about it. It is more entertaining than the movie. Last week I sat behind this guy laying next to this girl you could tell he liked. I noticed that they were texting each other as well even though they were laying right next to each other. So I text the guy and asked him if he was texting blondie laying next to him. He was totally surprised by my text but laughed it off and text me back. Pretty soon I have 3 conversations going with different people in the room while everyone else in the room has NO idea. I don't know why... but it is really funny to Tara and I, but we are weird like that. We think we are pretty funny so I guess that is all that matters.

Good for you for getting an awesome bed and recording songs. That sounds like a recipe for happiness. Oh, and I somehow got tickets for the Hunger Games the day before it comes out! There are not enough exclamation points in the galaxy to convey my excitement for that movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (see?)
