Attack of the Kamakazi Fly

Originally uploaded by pickyv83.
I was sitting at my desk today at work and heard a fly buzzing around. All of the sudden I look up and see this black dot headed at me. It hits my chest right under my collar bone and disappears. I could have sworn it went in my shirt but I couldn't find it so I gave up the search. Then I feel something move near my arm and sure enough when I move a fly falls out from my shirt...I found it dead under my desk later on in the day. My brother had given me the Orlando Bloom figure for Christmas...his action pose didn't seem to to intimidating to the fly, I guess!.

I'm getting old

I have started feeling old already and I'm only 23! I was at the movies on Friday night and it is insane how young the kids that hang out there look. It doesn't feel like that long ago that I would spend my Friday nights at the movie theater hanging out wtih my friends. I don't remember feeling like I looked that young though...And I've noticed something about young girls nowadays. They seem to have this way that they stand. It takes leaning on one leg to new heights. It's like they have this attitud-y stance where they have to stick one hip way out and lean the other direction on their other leg. I can't really explain it. All I know is that I've seen it more then a couple times. But attitude and being a teenager do go hand in hand.

Oh Boulder...

Heading into Boulder

So, tonight I went to see the new Jennifer Garner movie "Catch and Release." I have to admit that I am not really a huge Garner fan, but I had heard that the movie was filmed in Boulder a couple summers ago and I wanted to see what they did. I was living in Boulder at the time and had no idea that a film crew had been in town at all. I was working a lot that summer...Anyway, it was wierd to see so many places on a movie screen that I used to walk by on a daily basis. They really sterotyped Boulder, though. They had one scene where they were on Pearl St. and OF COURSE they had guitar playing hippies hangin around. They showed parts of Boulder Creek and The Hill (good ol Sink and Half Fast!), too. They even had one of the characters working at the Celestial Seasonings plant. They drank New Belgium beers and had a Bolder Boulder poster hanging in the background. One thing that kind of annoyed me...they had Garner's character go to a bar that does not exist. Not only that, they had all the people in the bar be cowboy types. If you live in Boulder, you know there are no cowboys and no cowboy bars. Especially bars that play all country music and have cowboy hat wearing men sitting at the bar. Other then that one gripe, I did like the movie and I loved seeing Boulder on the big screen!!!

Europe here I come!!!

Guess who's going to be a world traveler in less than 4 months...ME!! I have been reading up on things I want to see and even joined a email list that sends French language lessons for travelers to their emails every week. Maybe I should come up with something like that for people who want to learn English...not a bad idea! I'm so excited though. I want to read up on stuff so I am not completly lost when I get over there. A blondie in Barcelona...watch out!

Love songs for the lazy (or untalented)

I was reading through a springwise email the other day and saw the funniest rip off ever. Springwise is all about new buisness ideas. They did a whole article on a new-ish website that creates love songs for you to give to that someone special. www.tailoredmusic.com lets you pick a song, add your own lyrics and then someone at the company records your song and sends it to you. The thing that got me is how much it costs. It easily runs $300 bucks per song. What ever happened to writing a card or silly poem for Valentine's Day...

After unpacking all the boxes from the move we became inspired. First came the door. Then we went all out and decided to build Kacee her own little house. It looks like something one of the three little pigs would build. It didn't last long. Curiosity killed the house and now it sits in the middle of the floor in a collapsed heap. The funniest part is that now that it is broken, she actually likes to sit in it.
