Second, Burgers & Cupcakes went out of business! I forgot to say this the other day, but this is the place I took well, pretty much everyone who came to visit me from out of town ever. Aw! Sad. atomicfiction and I tried to go there and it was NOT THERE. WAS FOR RENT. Sad.
I already said sad.
Going to Maine this week for work. This has been a pretty crazy few weeks. I went to Old Navy today and they had an insane sale which was good. What was frustrating is that my pants don't fit me for the second time since the summer. I'm actually up to a normal weight but I feel kind of out of shape now and this is the first time I haven't been a stick since before I was 25 and it means I actually have the kind of chub people my age get. Not that it's a lot of chub, but I'd rather have some more muscle. cacophonesque suggested I join sparkpeople so I might do that so I can get in shape. The pants are frustrating, though.
There are no good movies out this week. Which may be a good thing, since I wouldn't have the opportunity to see many of them if there were. Is anyone else vaguely disturbed by what appears to be the rampant, for-lack-of-a-better-word, blaxploitation going on in How She Move? Like, what, if we use urban language for the title, that's supposed to make people think it's actually being made for black people by black people when it's actually an MTV movie? Sorry, but Ian Iqbal Rashid is not Spike Lee and the movie seems like a watered-down, overdramatized piece of crap. It was kind of embarrassing to even have to sit through the preview of it before The Great Debaters, because it was like, "HEY IF YOU LIKE MOVIES ABOUT AFRICAN-AMERICANS OVERCOMING ADVERSITY, TRY THIS TOO. ONLY OUR ADVERSITY IS OVERCOME BY DANCING IN SEXY CLOTHES." Yeeeah. If I'm totally missing something and someone else knows more about this movie that says this isn't what it is, I apologize for the assumption, but it's been bugging me and I just needed to get that out there.
And then there is some real news. I have been kind of not talking about this because my parents didn't want to jinx it this time, but it sounds like they are finally buying a house. And it is a fucking incredible house. It's up in Connecticut and it's remade from an old barn, and it HAS A HAYLOFT IN THE HOUSE. Actually, multiple ones. It's amazing. We're going up there Saturday morning to deal with some things, and I'll try to remember to take pictures on my mom's camera (I am still cameraless as mine disappeared the night of Colin's party and I haven't seen it since.) So, yay.
Now time for sleeping. Have to actually go to work tomorrow, which will be weird.
