The Academy Awards
First of all, let me just say, "YES! TRENT REZNOR WON!!!" Not that anyone really cares, but the three things that made me enjoy The Social Network as much as I did was direction by David Fincher (Fight Club), screenplay by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing), and music by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). I take great delight in saying that I'm terrible at guessing who's going to win, and my husband is almost perfectly dead-on every time. I have found that if I pretend like I'm paying no attention to the screen and just cross my fingers, then the one I want to win will win. This has worked 1 out of 1 times that I have tried it. You can't disagree with 100% accuracy.
Church today was lovely, as it has been this entire series. I'm looking forward to First Wednesday this week (anyone who wants to come is invited... we're moving all the chairs out of the auditorium and having a picnic, so bring blankets and food! :) This afternoon, we picked Michael up from work, and I made dinner of sorts -- chicken caesar salad and a lot of leftover Italian food. Snackies have abounded this evening as we're all together watching THE OSCARS. It's so rare that the five of us are in the same room, enjoying the same thing together, and I cherish it when it does happen.
Some shopping tips for those of you I haven't yet persuaded: GO. TO. ALDI. I got a heaping cart full of groceries this week for $95, including some of the best knock-off Chex Mix I've ever had. Honey nut version, which would put both my mom and my sister's boyfriend Brad out of commission if they ate it. One's allergic to honey, one's allergic to peanuts.
The new phones are working out well. I haven't had any problem with connection, coverage, or dropped calls yet. Granted, it's only been a few days, but I'm greatly pleased that we'll be spending $45 less every month for more minutes. Huzzah, Straight Talk. Huzzah.
Another work week starts tomorrow. And there was much rejoicing. Yaayyy...
This week, I will not be as strict with the exercise and such. I will, however, continue to cut down on sugar, leave Mountain Dew out of my life *sad, sad, sadness*, and get a moderate amount of cardio each day so it at least keeps my metabolism going. If I can lose another pound or two this week, that would be great.
Anyone who knows of any freelance writing to be done in the general vicinity, please throw the info my way, if you would be so kind.
Off to finish the Academy Awards!
