What's worse: a pit of snakes or a pit of spiders?
Spiders!  SPIDERS!!

Ugh, I shudder to think about it.

Give me snakes any day.

So we are coming to end of Week 1, and I must say...I'm exhausted. All this scheduled walking and vitamin taking and calorie counting. Dieting is not fun. Except the vitamin's that make my pee green. That's kind of fun. Aside from that I've started a strict skin care regimen. My face has always been acne prone, and since I'm trying to reinvent myself physically, then it's only natural to incorporate that into it as well.

However, I am going to stick to it until I am satisfied with myself physically. There was an hot topic on Twitter a few days ago "Everyone is Beautiful". I think everyone is only as beautiful as they feel. And if they do not feel beautiful, then you are the only one who can change that. Which is what I am doing.

Yep.  That's about it.

What’s your favorite show on television?
I don't really have a favorite show.  Most of the shows I watch are entertaining...but I'm not gripping my seat anxiously awaiting a new episode every week.  

I like paranormal/supernatural type shows.  Usually catch Ghost Hunters or Destination Truth if it's on.  That new show Paranormal Witness is kinda neat.
I watch a lot of anime.  Naruto Shippuuden is my regular anime.
Reality shows...
Food network shows...
You know....the usual.

What’s your favorite kind of weather?
I like cloudy weather.  When the clouds are dark and hold the promise of rain.  It's those kind of days where I can go wandering without fear of burning to a crisp (stupid southern sunshine!), or I can just stay inside, pull the curtains, and take a nice long nap.  Usually the latter.  I'm just lazy that way.

List three books that have changed your life:
1) Interview with the Vampire - Anne Rice
It opened my eyes to a sensuality and world I did not know existed until then.

2) Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey
Every word fills the senses and flows back to what is celebrated throughout the entire book and all that follow: LOVE.

3) The Quotable Sandman: Memorable Lines from the Acclaimed Series - Neil Gaiman
If I hadn't randomly picked up this little book, I may never have become intrigued by Mr. Gaiman and never experienced one of the greatest comics of my era.

So the Moet on Magazine is tonight. I worked today from 10 until 3. My boss was kind enough to give me a three hour break to go home, shower, get primped, and all that good stuff. I stopped by the hair salon to get my eyebrows waxed and ended up chatting up the owners about working there as a full time receptionist...again. They had interviewed me once already right after we moved to the city, but they had a whole list of people who wanted the job. I was also a little afraid I wouldn't fit so well there (since they were looking for a fashionably foward person...and I am, if anything, more fashionably eclectic). That same day I got hired on at my current job and never really gave them another thought. Apparently they really want me to work there and tried to call several times over the past couple months. I need more hours and a more stable pay situation, so I may end up there after all. I feel a little bad about leaving where I am, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Who knows. Things never seem to work out the way I want them to.

Anyway. What was I saying...oh yeah....the party tonight.

So here I sit, freshly showered and shaved, painting my fingernails. I'm a little terrified at the idea of wearing heels tonight. Last time I wore heels at the store, I ended up tumbling down the front steps and tearing a hole in my knee (I've got an awful scar to forever remember the experience). I'm such a klutz.

I'm hoping things will get interesting once everyone has a little champagne in their system. I'm going to bring my camera and keep my fingers crossed.

*cackles*

Where is the love you sold to me?
It comes like a bomb
Sounds like a song
Where is the love?

Ours, Lost


Ahhh. My music finally came in the mail today. It's so good.

So, there's a function this Saturday night on Magazine Street. Since I work on the street, I'm afraid I'll have to attend whether I want to or not. heh. I am sensing a 10am - 10pm work day in my immediate future. *sighs* Since it's sponsored by Moet Champagne, at least there will be plenty of liquid happiness for me to consume.

So we've finally finished up watching this years eight Horrorfest flicks. Crazy Eights wrapped things up last night. It was an ok movie, but we both felt like there could have been more...and it would have been a better movie. If you must see one, I recommend The Deaths of Ian Stone. It's not scary horror, more horror-themed, but out of them all it was the best overall as far as effects, catching you in the beginning, and wrapping things up well in the end. Clint would recommend Borderland. A crazy Mexican blood cult, clueless college kids just out for a good time, explicit scenes of torture...oh yeah. It was cringe worthy. Mulberry St was good and creepy. Zombie rat people...*shudders* Lake Dead was just...wrong on so many levels. Nightmare Man was actually kind of funny. Tooth and Nail wasn't too bad. Cannibals are always pretty interesting. Unearthed was the worst, I'm afraid. It was a neat idea, of course. It also had a hot female lead. It just failed to deliver. It might have been better had not the monster looked so much like an Alien. I just felt like any moment Sigourney Weaver was going to pop up and scream, "Get away from her, you bitch!"

Clint has been put in charge while his manager is away getting one of his kidney's and his...pancreas (I think) replaced. It's good because he's going to be getting lots of hours and this-is-my-store-you-will-obey-me experience in. It's bad because he's having to work some open to close shifts. Too much Radioshack in one day = violent drop in Clint's sanity. Good thing I keep him heavily medicated. heh. I kid.

Today marked the release of the second subbed episode of Vampire Knight. I've been keeping up with the manga (love it) and am just beside myself seeing it animated. Kaname-senpai!! *swoons* There will actually be Naruto Shippuuden filler starting this week, but no manga. Damn it. Just when things are getting beyond awesome. The movie should be subbed soon, so that's something to look forward to. This week's Bleach episode is also that last one in the story line for a while. Filler is about to kick into gear for that show as well. I guess we should use this as an opportunity to check out some of the newer anime series that just started up. I've been reading the xxxHolic manga. It's pretty freakin' awesome. I want to be like Yuuko. If my net wasn't so stupid I'd start downloading the anime.

And.................................................yep. That's it.
