Hello, my dear friends!

Of course, I'm up all super late right now (4:55 am to be exact). Ok, maybe I should have said "early" instead because I went to bed around 11 or so. I feel like my brain is going to explode, though. I swear, my thoughts are eating me alive. Sometimes, I think it's funny how I stress myself out. There are times when I have real legit excuses, but other times it's the silliest of silly things. Example: I'm stressed because I haven't had the time to find any new music to listen to...either the "finding it" part or finding the time to listen to it. Yesh, am I really that strange? Guess so.

Anyways, since I'm up, and haven't written in a crapload of time...I am here now.

Where can I start? Well, I wanted to finish a post I started a while back about my trip to Austin, but I didn't feel like I was in the mood. I do that a lot...start a post, run out of time, and never return to the mood to actually get it finished. Lame, I know. That's why I kinda like this one I'm writting right now. It has no real "start" or "end"...I'm just going with it. Going with the flowwww.

Let's see, I will tell you some recents viewings and readings of mine. First off, I finished In The Woods. Good book....maybe a 3 1/2 or 4 stars (outta 5). I had a rough time getting into the first chunk of chapters, but once I got half way in, I was really digging it. It was very Law & Order...or maybe more so like an episode of Bones or The Mentalist because of the female/male detective, kind of bond, thing.

Now, I started reading the 3rd book of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse. I have this thing that I like to read the book right in time with before the movie comes out. I can't lie, though, I'm not really into it as much, anymore. I loved (ok, I was as obsessed as any other Twi-hards out there) with the first book, but once I hit New Moon, I was over it. I feel like I'm only reading it, now, just so I can find out how it all goes. I mean, it's not terrible (well, the writting is), but it just doesn't do it for me. But then again, I've never been a series-kind of girl. I read the first book of Harry Potter and I was done. Oh well.

Movie-time! Just recently seen Date Night. Sorry, just did not dig it. I just couldn't find it all. And I love Tina Fey! Ok, maybe the taxi scene got a giggle out of me, but that was it. Vincere, I saw with the girls at IMC theatre. I'm a little surprised that I actually really enjoyed it. Sure, I got a little confused from time to time, but I thought it was really well acted and beautifully portrayed...'twas about Mussolini's supposed secret wife, and yes, it was in Italian. Subtitles, people. What's Eating Gilbert Grape...can you believe I've never seen this one? I feel like I've missed out on a ton of movies from my childhood. Anyways, Leo! What great acting! I still marvel at how people can be so convincing. A good classic. Jennifer's, I'm sorry, but I truly loved (maybe I should say "liked") this movie. It's totally not my style: comedy & horror. But weird, I LIKED it. Yeah, yeah, Megan Fox is hot in it (and I was actually surprised that she can act)...but Amanda Seyfried, I'll just say she's in my top five. Every movie she does, she's a completely different character. PS, I Love You. Great movie. Adored it. Do want an Irish boyfriend with an accent. Thank you. Away We Go...awful, terrible, hard not to turn off. Somehow, I actually bought this...and I couldn't want to sell it any faster. Oh, and I finally saw New Moon. It was ok. I love the soundtrack! I still love Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Maybe which is why I loved this movie better than the book...a first for me.

Have I mentioned.........??? I've taken a few dance classes! Hallelujiah! For those that don't know, I've spent 20-some odd years of my life dancing. It's the one thing I can actually say I'm good at. But its been a couple years, for me, since I've left it behind. I've decided, officially, to go back and do what I love most. I even hired a personal trainer to get me back to what I used to be physically (man, it's rough, but I'm working on it). Well, anyways, I took a basic class ...actually, it was a Gaga class with a few of my friends...just for fun, ya know? Not taking it seriously. Just doing it to have a good time and enjoy myself...and I figured, what a better way to do it than to do it with my besties. Plus, I figured it was good to go and take my first class in years in "private," if you know what I mean. No one to watch me ease back in with embarassing myself, no pressure from my elite dance friends that dance with artists like Beyoncé, Rhianna, Britney, etc. etc. etc. It's just not fair that way, ya know? Oh no, but of course, I run into an old friend of mine, Bijan, who just finished auditioning in a studio upstairs not too much earlier. He insisted on knowing where the hell I went and what the hell I was doing in a class like that. Whatever, I thought, I gotta start somewhere, right? He was supportive, though. And told me to come back, and just jump right into it. Sorta like riding a bicycle, right? Not exactly, but I'll try my best.

Ok, so that's what I got. Time to get stressed out on things like my brother's wedding coming up in a few & time-wise. Weddings are expensive! I couldn't want to spend money any other way, though. This is my only brother, and I'm super stoked to have his future wifey as my sister-in-law. I want to go all out!

Anyone going to bamboozle next weekend? I'm gonna be working at the Nylon tent taking photos, so come by to say "hi" and pose for a little photo-sesh!

Gotta go eat, tum-tum is a rum-rum rumblin'!

Mucho love!
