random little things

A few snippets:

1. It's weird because I swear, about half of the blogs I read are so overdue for an update (and I'm dying to hear from all of you... hint, hint!), and the other half are full of big news! Two people I read are moving to Texas, one is on the vergue of graduating, six are pregnant (two on the verge of giving birth), three are trying to get pregnant, and one child just broke an arm! Yipes.

2. The X-files movie (in theatures July 25th!) has a title! The X-files: I Want to Believe. Not the best title I've ever heard, but for big fans such as myself, its a phrase full of meaning. I'm so psyched for this movie to come out!! Anyone else excited?

3. Speaking of movies, Trav bought me Juno on Tuesday! We watched it last night because I never ended up getting to see it while it was out. I LOVE it! Such a good movie. I love Juno's character, I love the story... it cracked me up, but the end made me cry. I don't want to ruin it, but I'm glad things worked out the way they did, and I like that Juno wasn't stoic the whole time. Highly recommend this movie.
Not to mention that it was a really nice way to end what was otherwise a not to super day!

4. This is an entertaining article... and while Trav and I obviously don't live in Los Angelos, I know the feeling. As far as our neighbors go we know the ones directly on either side of us, and will wave to the ones two houses down, caticorner from us, and across the street (well, we'll wave to the husband, the wife is an old b*tch)... otherwise we really aren't familiar. And as for names, I know the names of the husbands on both sides, and some of their kids, and one of the wives... but that's it. Very weird to me, since growing up we not only new all our neighbors, we talked to them all the time... would take them cookies at Christmas! How do you all get along with your neighbors?

5. I was this --> <-- close to missing my train this morning. It was not good... I literally ran on the train at the last second. Ugh. What is up with my mornings lately?!

6. Tonight we will be eating quickly, then spending our evening (until 9 when there is a new CSI and Scrubs, yippee!) cleaning up for tomorrow night when Trav's cousin, husband, and baby are coming over for dinner. Should be fun. The dinner, that is, not the cleaning.

7. Last, but definitely not least, my cousin Jess and her husband, Martin, are the proud new parents of a baby girl! Kayden Lynn P**** was born at 9:31 pm on April 16th. She weighed in at 7lbs 10 oz, and is 19.5 inches tall, and has a full head of black hair. I can't wait to see pictures and eventually meet her (she's in Indy, so it will be a bit of a wait).

Okay, back to work for me!

  1. Maybe it's a midwestern thing, but I live in a quiet neighborhood right next to downtown (Chicago) and I know ALL of my neighbors. On summer evenings, we stroll the block, admire each other's gardens, and snack from random grilling adventures. It's a great place to be.


Leave me some love!
