Ringin' in the New

On a side note before I regale everyone with my infinite wisdom, I would just like to say that everytime my laptop makes it's funny little "boop" noise it just makes me giggle!

And since I obviously just heard my laptop make the "boop" noise for it to be so prominent in my mind, then you now know that I'm sitting at home twiddling my thumbs, reading books, watching lame-o movies, surfing the net, and yeah, I did some vacuuming earlier rather than going out to some big ole NYE shindig.

On another side note, I have a really hard time using NYE rather than New Year's Eve because I have to stop and think about what it stands for every single time I see it. Ha!

Anyway, I digress, so I'm sitting here at home. Just me and the cats. Now, don't get me wrong, I was invited to a game night with a good friend and her family, but unfortunately they came down with what she likes to call the "P & P," and I'll let you figure that one out all on your own. Needless to say (why do people say needless to say if it is in fact needless?) the game night was cancelled. I'm totally cool with that seeing as how my big NYE plan before the invite had been to sit at home with the cats and watch the Pick-a-flick marathon on LMN anyway, but the movies are L-A-M-E, lame! I'm not saying that Lifetime movies are Oscar nominees in the waiting on a good day, but come on! It's New Year's Eve! They could have at least put on some good ones that weren't made in the 80's! Not that things made in the 80's are all bad. I, myself, am a product of the 80's...(what is it with me and the side notes???)

Alas, I am still watching Lifetime, but I'm watching the regular channel and they're playing Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants which I've seen 5 times, but whatev. I'm thinking about putting in Eat, Pray, Love which Santa was kind enough to bring me for Christmas, but I'm feeling so antsy, I don't know if I can sit still long enough to watch it. I know, I know, you're thinking: "Amanda, aren't you watching a movie anyway?" Well, yes, but it's just on tv so I can get up to be a crazy whenever I please and yes, I realize I can do the same with a DVD after they invented that new-fangled rewind button, but I guess I feel some sort of obligation to sit through a movie without a break if it's on DVD. Man, I am weird!!

Ok, maybe I should wrap this up before I write a 12 page blog on how lame-o I am! So, let's recap: it's New Year's Eve, I'm sitting at home, with my cats, watching Lifetime, debating about whether or not I'm hungry (I threw something new in there for you to keep it spicy!) and honestly? I couldn't be happier. I love my life even if I do refer to it as lame, and I'm really looking forward to what life throws my way in 2011. I just hope it's nothing slimy...

  1. Eat Pray Love is a wonderful film, but the book is better storytelling!!
