Weekend Update 3/25-27/11 Including Monday the 28th

So this weekend was pretty good.  Friday night on my way home from work I gave HDiTty a call as usual and he said that Jim and Pat were on their way over to go out to the movies.  Jim's been wanting to take us to a movie for our birthdays since he didn't get us anything for them.

I was pretty tired and didn't want to go anywhere but I really wanted to see Paul so I said as long as I didn't have to drive I was game.  Pat ended up not coming because he said Paul wasn't worth seeing in the theater for all the money that would be spent.  He can't go to see a movie without buying a large popcorn and large drink.  Whatever.

So we three started debating on what other movie we could go see that would include Pat but after reading what we did about Suckerpunch we decided it wouldn't be worth seeing.  Besides Pat is also of the vein that women can't fight so he doesn't like those kinds of films anyway.  And there wasn't anything else that really held our interest enough to see now rather than waiting for DVD's

So we decided we'd just go out to dinner and then come back to the house to hang out there and go to the matinee on Saturday.  Jim tried to get ahold of him to let him know and see if a matinee would be better since it's saving a little bit of money anway and to see if he'd like to go to dinner at least but he couldn't reach him.  We still ended up going out to Chili's anyway.  Had a good meal then came back home.  But before all that we headed out to Best Buy so HDT could buy some new game called Rift that so many of the online friends are playing now.

When we got home from dinner those two went to start the game and realized that they needed to upgrade his dvd player.  So luckily with all the spare computers sitting around he was able to find a player that worked and get it hooked up.  Took awhile but finally they had it.  After they did that we put in The IT Crowd Season 2 to watch.  One of the shows wouldn't play no matter what we did but all the rest were just fine.  I went to bed shortly after it was over with and HDT came to bed a few hours later. 

Saturday I got up just before 10 I think it was.  Ate a peanut butter sandwich and had an 8oz glass of chocolate milk.  Set my timer for 30 minutes to let it all settle before doing the burst exercise on the treadmill like I did last Saturday.  I wasn't able to do as well as last week, 30 seconds less, but at least I did a whole workout anyway.  I just continued to walk at a fast pace and I also inclined for awhile.

I took a nice soak afterward and while in the tub HDT woke up.  He said he was to call Jim around 1ish to see about going to the 2pm Paul showing.  We ended up skipping that because everyone was moving so slowly.  But he got over to our house just before 3:00 and we all ate our breakfast/lunches then headed out for the 4:40 showing.

Really fun movie, ton of references to other movies.  I'm sure we didn't catch them all.  It's a lot "bloodier" than I thought it ever would be.  But still a really good, fun movie.

After we stopped off at the grocery store to pick up a few things and decided to grill out some steaks for dinner.  Really good meal, nice and tasty.

I am drawing a complete blank on what we watched.  Oh that's right, it was Fight Night on Spike.  They had a free UFC showing.  Had some pretty good fights too.  After that I believe they went onto the computer to play some more of the Rift game.  I think I just watched a recorded show or two and then headed up to bed.  I was pretty darn tired.

Sunday we were really, really lazy.  We did nothing but watch more Buffy's on Netflix Instant and did some laundry.  That was it.  But it felt nice that's for sure.

Yesterday I decided I'd get on the elliptical after we had dinner.  Just being on there guilted HDT to get on the treadmill.  But since he didn't have tennis shoes on he couldn't jog at all.  So he went to get those while I did my second burst.  He had just come back downstairs when I finished it and he asked how I felt about taking this show on the road.  I agreed but checked how many calories I burned first, I just hit 101, very happy about that.  So I put on my jacket and we put the harness on Poydras and headed out. 

The route we take around our neighborhood is just under 1 mile.  We jogged about a 1/4 or maybe even a 1/3 of it in spurts.  Couldn't call it bursts because it wasn't all out but I was still completely winded after each jog.  Today my neck, shoulders and back are a little stiff but otherwise I feel good.

Weekend Update 3/18-20/11

So this was another fairly busy weekend even though HDT had to work.

But I can't remember what we did Friday night.  I'm thinking we must have stayed home as usual since he had to work Saturday morning but I really can't remember.  If we stayed home as I'm thinking we did we watched some Dexter's Season 4 from Netflix.

Saturday, as mentioned, he had to work so he was gone when I got up which was at 8am. Pretty early for me.  But Pretty Boy came running into the room trying to get behind the blinds onto the window sill.  So since I was awake I decided to get up and workout.  I'm still sore today from it too, good workout!

I soaked in the tub reading the time away after that then got ready to go do the shopping that I didn't get done on Thursday night and also to get HDiTty's dad his birthday card and gift.  While I was out HDT called to say he was getting out of work an hour early and that his dad canceled on us (we were going to take him to see Paul) because he's feeling really lousy.  But HDT remembered there was a charity bowling event for the local FOP that we were supposed to go to.  So since all I had left to get was dad's card we decided I should just skip that and head on home and get it later or on Sunday.

When I got home he was already there but just.  So as I'm putting things away I let him know that there's no way I'll be able to bowl.  I'm way to sore from the workout this morning.  I'm more than willing to go and be a cheerleader though.  But he decided since his psoriasis was flaring up and hurting we should just stay home.  So he got in the tub with the Aveno oatmeal bath stuff to soak it out.

While in there he gets a call from some friends of ours that we haven't seen in something like 5-6 years.  They're in the area visiting her sister and would like to meet up.  So we met them at our favorite Chinese restaurant and hang out for a little while with them and their three kids.  The youngest of which slept pretty much the whole time but that was ok. 

We had to get home though before 8pm as my brothers were coming over for the UFC fights.  So we parted ways and we made it just in time to set everything up before the first brother arrived.  The fights were a mixture of good and ok.  Once again better than expected since there wasn't one fighter I cared about.  And of course we had a good time with the guys as usual.

HDT was silly and stayed up the whole time and didn't get into bed until close 1am because he stayed up afterward to set up the recording as usual.

Sunday I was pretty much lazy and sat on the couch still recuperating from the workout on Saturday.  I finally started watching Gilmore Girls.  Jess loaned me the first season ages ago and I never felt like watching it until now.  It's alright so far.  I guess I was expecting so much more since the fans are so fanatical about it.  Bust still, it's a good one to watch on weekends that he's at work and I don't have much else to watch or do.

A little after 4pm I quit watching and finished making myself presentable and headed back out to Target to shop for dad's birthday card and gift.  Ended up getting him a really cool black and white blown up photograph picture of Wrigley Field.

Got home just before HDT did, showed it to him before wrapping it up then we headed over to his dad's house for cake and ice cream.  Actually ended up being brownies and ice cream but that's ok, brownies are good.  Hung out there for awhile then finally headed out just after 8pm.

We picked up some pizza from the place where we first met and don't get to very often and headed home.  We watched a couple more Dexters before I had to finally get into bed.

Weekend Update 3/11-13/11 Also includes Monday the 14th

So this weekend was a good one.  Since HDiTty had to work on my birthday weekend we celebrated it this past weekend.

Friday after work we got ready and went out to Outback Steakhouse rather than a "fancy" steakhouse as I was originally wanting to do.  We agreed that since people were coming over on Saturday we'd already be spending a lot of money so we decided to go "cheaper" and go to a chain restaurant instead.  We still ended up dropping 80 bucks in all and that was with splitting the meal!!  We each got a couple drinks - he got long islands and I got something I can't remember the name of but it was really good, sweet but not too sweet.  We shared an appetizer that although was ok wasn't what we remembered getting way back over a year ago the last time we were there.  So yeah, we won't be getting that again, since it was only ok.  We shared a fillet mignon meal, it was an 8oz fillet and we got the garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli for the sides.  We split everything in half and then before we even took a bite of anything we realized we forgot to order the 3 grilled shrimp add on for me.  So we snagged the waitress and let her know I'd like those.  I cut about 2oz off of my half of the steak and gave it to him.  That way he got about 5oz and and I got 3oz., which with the shrimp was perfect.  Then we shared a desert of warm brownie with vanilla ice cream on top.  It would've been over a hundred bucks if I would've gotten my own meal. 

So yeah, we won't be doing that again when we go.  No appetizer nor desert, although the only reason we got desert was because of celebrating my birthday.  We'll still split the steak and as long as the add on shrimp are still available I'll get those so he can have more of the steak; and we'll get our own 2 sides.  That'll work out really well.  Afterward we headed home and just vegged out on the couch until bedtime.  Or at least I did, he went on the computer and came to bed a couple/few hours after I did.

Saturday I got up before him and got myself presentable and headed out to the grocery store just before noon.  I woke him up before I left though to make sure he didn't oversleep.  When I got home he let me know that Jess was on her way over to start watching more Grey's Anatomy.  We cried and cried when George died, watched one more after that ep and then had to stop so she could go home to take a shower for later that night; HDT could take a shower and head out to get my cake and a few other things I forgot earlier; and I could vacuum and finish straightening up.

HDT also picked up Jim while he was out.  They made it back before Jess did.  At some point earlier I had been putting the twelve packs of pop in the fridge to get cold.  I also was transferring my Diet Mt. Dews from the case to the fridge pack, as I was doing so I dropped one of the cans right ON TOP of my left foot:


Look at that bruise!  And that tiny, tiny cut that bled like crazy!!  Yeah, it still hurts, maybe even more now that the bruise is starting to heal.

Anyway, Jess finally made it back over, Pat also came and Michelle - one of the girls that went to school in Mexico when HDT did several summers ago.  Love her!!  We had a great time playing games and eating good but bad for you food and having birthday cake and doing shot after shot of Jager.  Although some of them had other types of shots as well.

Jess and Pat left around the same time so the rest of us played another game before finally Michelle had to leave.  HDT, Jim and I watched a movie - Suck - that I had read about awhile ago in EW and their friend Clint had reminded me about when all the mutants were in town a few weeks back.  It was an absolutely ridiculous but fun movie - recommended!!

I went to bed after that, not sure when HDT finally took Jim home but he didn't make it into bed until after 7am.  Which was bad since we had to get up fairly early to go to his nephew's birthday party.  Since we lost an hour that didn't help and since we still needed to get his card and present and pick up grandma on the way he really couldn't/didn't get much sleep.

Jess got over just after 1pm and we headed to Target to get presents and cards.  We also got his mom her cards and present (her birthday was Feb 21st) and then headed over to grandma's to wrap everything up and sign the cards.  Got up to the party around 3pm and no sooner did we walk in the door than Gage started to open his gifts.  I guess they were just waiting on us to show up.  After the gift opening we sang happy birthday and had cake and that was that really.  Did some socializing for a little while and then made it out of there around 5:30 or so. 

Took grandma to the pharmacy to collect some of her medicine but they were closed for the day so just took her home.  Got home and Jess took off to go meet a couple friends for the rest of the evening.  HDT and I debated about heading out to our favorite Chinese place to pick up dinner but I told him since we spent so damn much money this weekend and it's such a long drive out there and it's not exactly cheap to get it he had to agree that it would be the last time this month that we ate out.  Oh yeah, he also had to drive because I was really too tired to keep driving.  So since he didn't like any of those things he decided we'd just stay home for dinner, as we should anyway.  He made tacos for himself and I had a couple hot dogs and chips.

We finally started watching Dexter Season 4 that we've had from Netflix for several weeks now.  Then around 11:00ish we finally made it into bed.

He had to go in at 5:00am instead of his usual 6:00.  When I woke up when his alarm went off I was met with a very bad headache.  But rather than take anything for it I figured I just needed more sleep.  Yeah, that didn't help.  For one it took me forever to fall back asleep because of how bad it was and I think thinking about it didn't help.  Then when my alarm went off a couple hours later and I moved to hit the snooze I got the sharpest fuckin knife pain all over my forehead.  UGH.  I got up to let the boy out to do his business, got him and the cats fed and went into the bathroom to try to get ready anyway. 

Yeah, that wasn't gonna work.  So I called and left a message for my boss, took one of my Maxalts, put a blanket over our east facing window, put on my eye mask and crawled right back into bed.  I woke up completely just before noon.  Still hurting but not quite as bad as earlier.  As the day wore on it kept easing up little by little.  Around 4:30 or so my head all of sudden started to tingle and get really cool and I could actually feel the pressure releasing.  That's only happened a handful of times.  I got really happy but then shortly after no pain it came back but this time only on the right side of my head.

That stayed, getting bad then easing up then getting bad then easing up over and over all the way until last night.  I went into work on Tuesday though because this time at least it was manageable.  Turns out my coworker also called in sick.  Except she's feeling all fluey, just no fever. 

She's still feels that way today and my head has decided to hurt again but this time on the left side but at least it's still manageable.

The bugger of me

So, you know what bugs me?  No, well I'll tell you.  This bugs me:





That thing on the side of the cabinet is a towel holder.  My late, great stepfather made it himself in his wood shop.  All you have to do is stick the towel into it and it hangs there nice and handy for the next time you need it.  It holds it up and out of the way of everything and it's loose enough that it'll dry quickly.

My husband, for some reason I cannot fathom, refuses to put the towel in it.  Instead he hangs it on the handle of the cabinet.  Where it's all bunched up and takes longer to dry and it also hangs low enough that it's in the way of doing things on the counter.

I've asked nicely and, admittedly, bitchily for him to put it in the actual place it's supposed to go but nope he continues to hang it on the handle.  There are times that I think he does it just to bug me. 

Men

No Media quote, can't think of anything that would go.

I don't wanna be a bum

So yesterday was Fat Tuesday and a few weeks ago I ordered two King Cakes from a bakery (which will go unnamed) in New Orleans to have shipped to me here in Illinois for delivery on Monday.  They came and I was very happy that I didn't have to do the frosting and the sugar as I have had to do with cakes in the past. 

I got into work and proceeded to make a nice set up on one of the tables in the kitchen.  Each of the cakes came with several beads, doubloons, a packet chicory coffee and a booklet about Mardi Gras. I decorated around both cakes with them all.  Angry with myself that I didn't take a picture of it; it looked really nice too.  Anyway, everyone who had a piece liked it so that was good.

But I was very disappointed because one of them was supposed to be filled with german chocolate filling.  It was even labeled as such so I know the bakery knew it was supposed to be.  But there wasn't one part of it that was filled.  Not. One. Bit.  The top was a little different than the other one.  It had some kind of topping with chopped nuts thrown in on it.  But no filling.  We of course still ate it and still enjoyed it but still.

So at the end of the work day yesterday I sent the bakery an email letting them know the situation.  I also sent them pictures to back it up.  It's been almost 24 hours since and I haven't received a reply.  I have a feeling I won't be getting one. 

I feel the same way that I did at Christmas time about the tree, I'm not expecting them to do anything about it but it sure would be nice to receive an apology at least.  But I'm not getting my hopes up, that's for sure.  At least it didn't cost more than the plain one.

But what actually bugs me even more than the mix up and not hearing back from them is that someone (and I believe I know who) threw the last few pieces of it away.  When I was writing the email I figured I should send a picture of the label showing that it should be a chocolate filled caked.  So I go into the kitchen and grab it and scan it in.  Then as I'm writing some more I think, well I'll send them a picture to show what I'm talking about.  So I go back to the kitchen to take the pictures (only about 4 minutes since the last time I was in there) and the table is cleared off.  No cake.  I open the fridge thinking this person wrapped the last few pieces up and put them away.  Nope, fridge is empty of cake.  I look around on the counter. Nope, counter is empty of cake.  The boxes they came in are still on top of the cabinets exactly where I had just put them minutes before.  So, I look in the garbage and there they are sitting as pretty as can be right on top.  I had to take the one piece out to get the pictures. 

It just pisses me off.  As mentioned they knew who brought them why the hell not come and ask me if I'd like to take the last bit home?  Hell, why not just wrap them up and put 'em in the fridge?  Why the hell ya gotta throw 'em away?  They were $45.00 a piece, not that they knew that but still!!!  As I told HDT, I could have taken them out and taken them home.  They were still on top of the cardboard that they were shipped on with nothing else surrounding them.  It's not like they were contaminated in any way.  But it's still knowing they were taken back out of the garbage can that would be bugging me about it all.  It'd be George Castanza all over again.  No thank you.

Weekend Update 3/4-6/11

So, it was my birthday weekend and it was pretty damn uneventful.  Mainly because HDiTty had to work.

Friday I was hoping to go out for a really nice steak dinner but he made a good point.  Since he had to work Saturday morning we wouldn't be able to just go out and enjoy ourselves with good food and a good drink or two.  He wouldn't be able to have a drink, not really anyway, and we'd be watching the clock to make sure we were back early enough for him to go to bed at a decent hour.  So we decided we'd do it this coming Friday.

So instead I asked him for Chili's.  And to compromise on not going there to eat but bringing it home instead he had to be on the couch with me rather than going back on the computer.  Which he did, for the most part.  He still played Words with Friends on his iphone with one of his coworkers.

But we started in on the Ally McBeal dvds and that made me happy.  We watched all four episodes on disc one before he had to go up to bed.  I went with since I was pretty tired myself.

Saturday he had to work his full day, no getting off at 2:00.  I was pretty damn lazy all day.  The only thing I did was a couple loads of laundry.  Basically I parked my ass on the couch and watched a marathon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 on Netflix.

When he got home from work he asked how sore I was from working out and doing the scorpion flip, I told him pretty darn sore still.  So he took me upstairs and proceeded to give me a really terrific massage.  Complete with low light and pretty music in the background.  Afterword we did, well, what adults do together.  Heh

We made dinner (fish filets & tots baked in the oven) and headed downstairs for him to give me card and gifts.  He got me a couple boxes of thin mints (yummmm) and the sixth season of Grey's Anatomy (Yay!).  But since we're watching that with his sister Jess, I just turned the Buffy shows back on and we watched those until he had to go to bed.

Sunday I did the same thing, just turned on the Buffy's and continued watching those all day.  I broke at about 3:00 to run to the grocery store to pick up a few things we were needing but then started right back in them until he got home. 

This time I gave him a massage.  Not as good as the one he gave me but still good and we again did things adults do with each other afterward. 

Put a pizza in the oven for dinner and he went on his computer while I resumed the Buffy's until I had to go to bed.  He stayed up until a little after 1:00.

So that was my wild birthday weekend.

I say it's my birthday!

Happy Birthday to me!!

I'm 41 today.  Does that mean I'm on the hill down or is that at 51?  I say it's at 51 and at 51 I'm gonna say it's at 61 and so on and so forth.

Our accounting manager's birthday is today as well.  2/3 of our accounting department is birthdaying it today.  Heh

So our boss took our department and the admin department out to lunch.  We decided to go to TGI Fridays.  Good choice, haven't been there in years.

HDT is supposed to be taking me out for a nice steak dinner tonight, we shall see if that happens.  He has to work this weekend so we're not doing more than that.  But next weekend we plan on having a game night on Saturday so we'll see if that ends up happening or not.

No media quote again today.  Man am I slacking in my old age or what?

Gettin old now, can't deny it.

So my birthday is tomorrow, the big 41, ugh!  Anyway, because I kept getting headaches within an hour or so of putting the perfume on or as Monday went - not putting on but sitting with my snuggie pulled up to my neck and smelling the perfume that had gotten on it from the last two days - I decided it wouldn't be a good idea to get the stuff.

But today when I went home for lunch HDiTty asked if I had a headache.  I told him no and he says for me to put a little of the stuff on and see how it goes.  So far it's been an hour and no headache but we shall see.  Anyway he says he really really likes the stuff and would hate not to be able to get it so since my powers of scientific study weren't so great we had to try it one more time on purpose. 

If it comes down to me not being able to get it I don't know what we'll do for a gift.  Probably Grey's Anatomy Season 6.  Lame I know but it'll make me happy and that's all that matters right?  I could go for some books too. 

Decisions, decisions....

Weekend Update 2/25-27/11

So let's see.  It was a pretty busy weekend overall really.  HDiTty has a group of friends from his junior high and high school days, they call themselves The Mutants because they were pretty geeky.  Hell, to a point they all still are.  Anyway, some of them got together during the day on Friday and went to lunch then hung out until I got home.

I changed pretty quickly and we headed out to dinner.  We decided to go to BWW but when we got there they were packed with a 30 minute wait.  So I called over to Chili's (just up the street) and they didn't have a wait so we headed over there.  One of the guys brought his wife along as well with their 5 year son.  He and I played the games sheet that restaurants always have to occupy kids with.  We did word search and tic tac toe. I of course let him win those.  We started in on an ad libs type thing but the food came and we never got back to it.

After dinner we headed over to the bowling alley to have some fun there.  HDT and I barely made it over 110.  I beat him by 3 pins though, at least I think that's what it was.  After the first game was over Kevin and his family had to leave and one of the other guys decided to sit out the next game since his hand was hurting.  HDT and I did so much better.  I marked every frame but one and then it was absolutely horrendous.  I guttered my 1st ball and only got one with my 2nd.  And HDT decided I couldn't beat him and he stepped up what he was doing and finished strong.  Because of that one frame though he beat me by 3 pins.  Damn!

We headed back to our house so they could finish watching Fright Night which I guess they were watching while waiting for me to get off of work.  We had talked about different shows or webisodes we had all been watching so we decided to show them a couple of them after the movie.  We played the first season of The Guild and then the first show of The IT Crowd.  I believe they'll be checking those out when they get the chance. 

Everyone but Jim left after that, it was pretty late and one of them had to get home to his family.  Jim stayed behind as usual.  We watched some of our recorded shows but with so many of them pixalized (this is why we want to get rid of Directv) we gave up.  I went to bed, not sure what those two did.  Actually, I think Jim went home then as well.

Saturday we both got up about the same time.  We were debating on what to have for breakfast when he noticed that Jess left a message saying she needed a ride to her dentist.  So we agreed to do that, we only had time for a sandwich (me) and hot dogs (him) before we had to get ready to go.  Collected her just before 1:00 and made it to her appointment with 15 minutes to spare.  Since we weren't too far from the Apple store we headed over there after dropping her off.  HDT has been needing a battery for his laptop for quite awhile now.

Right next to the Apple store is a Sephora store.  Kate Walsh (Dr Addison Montgomery on Private Practice) has created her own perfume called Boyfriend.  She's been hawking it herself, especially on twitter and I've been wanting to test it out but we don't have any Sephora stores near our town.  So we head in the store after he got his battery and we were bombarded by two sales ladies from the moment we walked in.  But that was ok, they were both really nice if a little over enthusiastic. 

I sprayed a little on my left wrist and found that I did indeed like it.  But with my birthday coming up on Friday we decided we wouldn't get it now.  When discussing my birthday one of the sales ladies heard us and told me to sign up for the beauty insider thing they got going on and I'd get a free birthday gift.  So I signed up and did get a free gift.  I received a bottle of birthday cake shampoo, body wash, bubble bath all in one.  I used it on Sunday as the bubble bath and wash (not the shampoo), it was pretty nice. 

Jess called while we were getting ready to leave to say she was ready for pick up.  We collected her and decided she'd come over to continue watching Grey's Anatomy season 5 with us. We also picked up some lunch - pizza and bread sticks.  We watched that until just before 8:00 when the brothers would start to head over to watch the UFC prelims.  Jim also came over.

Scott and all but one of his kids were there first, as usual.  Wayne couldn't make it but the other two, Roy and Jason, made it.  Early even, they usually don't show up until the actual fights are about to start or actually did start.  There were two fights that the decisions were total bullshit but whatever.  And Bisbing - Oh My God I can't stand that cheating motherfucker!  There's no way this win should count.  I agree with HDT, that it'll always have an asterisk next to it.  CHEATER!

Anyway, after the fights everyone headed out but Jim and Jess.  She wanted to watch the last show on the disc of Grey's so we did that.  Just a little ways into it HDT went to bed because he ended up with 4 hours overtime in the morning starting at 6:00am.  After the Grey's show Jim and I watched the last part of one of the comedy shows we had been trying to watch the night before and gave up on.  After that he headed home and I took Jess home.

Sunday when I got up I finally started to make the Amish friendship bread I was supposed to make back on Thursday but didn't.  I had pretty much just put them in the oven when HDT got home.  He was talking to Jess when he came and they decided that if she got enough of her apartment cleaned she'd come over later in the afternoon to watch the last 4 shows of season 5.

He and I watched some comedy shows while having breakfast but shortly after eating he started to fall asleep so I made him go take a nap for a couple hours.  Shortly after he laid down I decided to take a bath and read.  After I got him up I made the other batch of Amish bread using chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. 

A little after putting them in the oven Jess called to say she was ready to come over if we were still willing to have her.  So we hopped in the car to pick her up along with some Chinese for dinner.  Got home and I set up the Oscars to record and then proceeded to watch the last eps of Grey's. 

Near the end of the 2nd to last show she mentioned something about wanting to take her computer home that he was supposed to be working on for the last couple of weeks.  They got into a little tiff and she decided she was going home with the computer regardless of what he thought.  So we packed her up and I took her home.

Came home and proceeded to watch the Oscars.  They were pretty boring for the most part.  I agree with everyone that says Franco was out of it and Hathaway was very bubbly.  But I was ok with that, that's what she is most of the time anyway it seems.  No real surprises with wins but that's ok too.  It was a good year for the front runners to actually win because they were all really good.  I would rather have had Rush win for supporting actor than Bale but that's probably only because we haven't seen The Fighter yet.

Anyway, after the show was over we headed up to bed and that was that for the weekend.

Media quote of the day:  From Here Comes the Flood - 2nd show of Season 5

Bones break. Organs burst. Flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down. When we break down. There's no science, no hard and fast rules. We just have to feel our way through, and to a surgeon, there's nothing worse, and there's nothing better. - Dr. Meredith Grey
