    Last night I played this game with Daniel, Bernie, and Arynne.  Tres Fun.  It's an interesting mix of clue and guess who.  With the added interest of ringing a little bell, getting sent back to mass every couple of turns, and having to chant like monks for a couple of rounds.  Chanting like monks is, of course, even more interesting to the people milling about who are not actually playing the game.  I won, go me! (Boo! Brother Cuthbert.) Everyone else was right behind me.  If you have a chance, I would suggest taking a look.

    So, apparently I am in a revisiting old obsessions phase.  First, I found the Christy DVD's at Walmart and rewatched the entirety of my favorite television show from fourth grade.  Then, today, I found and rented DVD's of Janette Oke's Love Comes Softly Series which I loved in middle school.  I hope I'm not regressing.  That would be bad. 
   
    In other news, the Linder Motor Lodge of Homer, Louisiana now has wireless internet.  Yeah!  It also has some little old man who asks me every day if it is working.

The best part of spending a four-day in Monroe:  Access to movies.  In case you didn't know, and really how could you not? Allison = huge movie buff.  That should probably be huge media buff as I get equally excited about tv, books, and theater, but who's counting.  Anyway, in the past four days I watched (In no particular order)
  • Big Love Season 1 (Disks three and four) - Ridiculously addicted to this show on DVD.  Where dead, and not so dead, Veronica Mars characters go. 
  • The Devil Wears Prada - Had to see [profile] undy_niable's movie girlfriend.  How many of you got dragged to The Princess Diaries 2 by your brother.  I thought so. 
  • Babel - I think I'm over the concept movie, at least for a while, but loved the parts in Japan. 
  • Bee Season  - Much better as a short story. 
  • Zodiac - Went to see this with Amy, one of the Maryland archaeologists we are currently working with.  She says it's best Zodiac movie ever with regards to the details of the actual case.  Being not much of a true crime person, I wouldn't know. I can say it was a better realized movie than Black Dalia

In other news, I think I am currently rooming with my psychic twin.  We have the same computers, ipods,  cameras, and many of the same DVD's.  She is using the ring tone I was using before I had to get a new phone. She's read the book I'm reading and I've read the book she's reading.  Plus she writes Harry Potter fanfiction and has an lj which means she must be a fandom dork too (not to mention I've always wanted to write fic).  Really, its very creepy.

Went swing dancing/jiveing with [profile] glowwormtu in NOLA.  I love jive! So much fun.  Of course, now my calves hurt, and I'm really tired -- but in a good way.  

I've missed NOLA far more than I thought I did.  It was nice to drive down the streets I used to haunt.  Partake of favorite restaurants (NInja).  And even see a movie at the theater I always get lost on the way to.  (Pan's Labyrinth is very good, but has very graphic, disturbing violence - and I don't usually say that about a movie.  It also is in Spanish with subtitles, which is not really clear in all the press.)  I didn't get lost on the way, but once again we almost went over the Huey P. Long bridge on the way back.  My Premier drivng rule: NEVER GO OVER THE BRIDGE!

I feel really productive today as I:

1. Got my oil changed

2. Picked up my last JoAnn's paycheck and exchanged the two skeins of green chunky yarn for two skeins of green worsted weight yarn, so that I have the appropriate materials for the sweater I want to make.

3. Checked out the West Chester Grower's Market. Yay! locally produced fresh vegetables! Also, Yay Amish people! I got cucumbers, dill, potatoes, and carrots. Now I shall make a dilled carrot and potato salad. Really, someday I will convince myself that I like to cook.

4. Returned books to the library - but then I do that every Saturday, so it's not really a surprise. Sadly Reefer Madness had to go back. I may need to get a personal copy as what is better than a musical based on 1930's propaganda about pot.

5. Divested my closet of the clothing that I no longer plan to wear.

6. Went food shopping for things not found at the grower's market, like milk and bread and the yummy macaroni salad.

Of course, the one thing I really needed to do - get my car inspected - did not work out, so I shall have to make an appointment for later in the week.

In other news, after a week of being a Archaeological Lab Technician I can safely say that I am in fact working with rocks, lots and lots of rocks. I get to wash the rocks, divide the rocks based on size and type, count the rocks, and finally weigh the rocks. Occasionally, I get a rock that was actually shaped into a stone tool, but most of the time, just rocks. I love my job, it is so cool!

So, incase your blind, or Arynne, it snowed here last night, so I got up and didn't have to go to church because the snow was over my boot and I didn't think I could make it out of the driveway. Instead I:

1. Knitted a sweater for my Ipod. I find that when you leave the Ipod in a cold car for eight hours the battery dies and leaves you with nothing to listen to on the way home from work. Hopefully now the Ipod will stay all toasty and that will not happen.

2. Watched The Newly Wed Game on Game Show Network. Funniest. Show. Ever. The family came to check on my because I was laughing so hard.

3. Went sledding with [livejournal.com profile] undy_niable. Very fun except for the need to avoid neighbor kid on his ATV. Though, the ATV did pack the snow down quite well, so wow did we go fast. Then I fell off the toboggan because I overcompensated while attempting to steer. Anyone know how to properly steer the toboggan?

4. Attempted to formulate the reaction post I want to make on Brokeback Mountain. I've seen it twice now, and both times the people I went with liked it much less than I did, which is starting to annoy me.

Hopefully I will now not have to sing the annoying Robert Frost poem-song in church.

Went to see the newest Star Wars. As is the general concensus, I thought III was much better than I or II. The movie would still had been vastly superior if Anakin and Padme had been forbidden to speak to or about each other. Their dialog together was awful, their dialogue with others, not so bad. Really that's all I have to say. Well, that and aparently in this far away galaxy people (or at least Jedis) are able to breath in space. I find this interesting.

My Ipod came this morning. I got to answer the door in my pajamas and hair all falling out 'cause I hadn't brushed it yet look. My mother would be very disapointed, but frankly I don't care. Apple should really sent out the Ipods fully charged. It comes, you're all excited, ready to load some music and try it out, but no it has to charge for two hours.

Last monday I checked the movie Portrait of a Lady out of the library because I was in the mood for a period drama. I have since spent the whole week trying to watch it and my reaction if mostly meh. I should have gotten Northanger Abby instead.

Yeah, so that title as absolutely nothing to do with this entry, but the song is in my head. 

Spent much of the day watching Manor House on DVD, since that is what I got out of the library.  I'm sure my family is going to make fun of me for watching it, but I find it fascinating.  I would love to do one of those programs, or well maybe not one of the programs since you can't get away, but definitely one of the museum villages where you dress up and practice a trade in the old style. 

I find the show very funny, whenever they try to discuss a more indelicate aspect of their lives and then can't quite find the way to put it.  Like when the mother was discussing the Edwardian underwear and its crotchless nature.  I also don't understand why the servants all made such a big deal about getting, and then not getting, and then getting again to see their parents after six weeks.  So not that long of a time.

This morning I got to wait at home for the guy to come to fix the sliding doors. I just love baby-sitting delivery men. I felt like an idiot when I told him that the glass door had been broken by a "stone propelled by a weed-waker." I really need to not use odd sentence structure when talking to people that don't know me.

Spent the rest of the day watching movies. High Society is still enjoyable, although, The Philadelphia Story is still the superior telling of the same story. Unfortunately it does not seem to be out on DVD. At least it wasn't in the store when I was picking out something for my brother to get me as a Christmas present. Next I watched What Ever Happened to Baby Jane because my mother had randomly bought it.  Mighty freaky movie, but definitely good. 

Finally, I went to Sears to find out it I could start working yet.  Turns out I can, so my mother can stop asking every five seconds if they have called yet.  Yeah!
