Mr. and Mrs. Suzuki

So the Smith's come out on DVD today. I'm really excited about watching it, but I'm waiting until this weekend to watch it with the family. I found out I'll just have to buy another copy of it in 6 months or so, because they are releasing a director's cut. It's supposed to feature the love scenes they cut out and some of the extended action stuff. I hate that crap, why not release it now?? Anyways though.
Barbara Walter's Ten Most Fascinating People is on tonight at 10. Woohoo. I can't wait to find out who the most fascinating is. Eeek, we all know who my top choice is though--now don't we? I got my long paper for journalism back today and I got a 91/100 on it. I was totally expecting a C on that thing and I managed one point from an A. That rocks man.
Jenny's death has me thinking about death a lot today. I mean, I'm probably more fine with the subject than most people. But, I just keep thinking of what a dead body looks like. Is that weird? I always thought I knew, cause I'd seen them plenty of times in caskets. But, then my grandma died and I saw what it looks like without makeup. And then I thought about how I can't possibly imagine Jenny's tanned face that stark white. I dunno, I know that's probably extremely morbid, but it's not like anybody reads this junk anyway. I've also been thinking about whether you can see your own funeral after you are gone. I would like to think so, but then again, I don't think I could stand to watch people I love all upset. Then I've been thinking about how I'd want my own to go. For one thing, they better get all the info in the obituary correct, and I'd like an addition to it that prompts people to donate to a charity in my memory. Now as for the charity, I can't conclude which one I'd like it to be, but I'll get back to you on that. I also know that people would be inclined to run out and buy blue and white flowers for me because once upon a time I was vocal about my little UK obsession. But, I'd hate that. I'd much prefer for everything to be pink. Yeah, pink...and purple, greens are pretty. Red would be off limits though, blech, I hate red. I'd want to be buried somewhere pretty, with a view, and a nice cemetery. Not one in the Mount. My grandparents place is beautiful. And I'd better have a headstone, no crappy flat marker for me....

I'll Just Sit Right Here and Have Another Beer in Mexico
Well I got that interview done yesterday. Her quotes weren't that great. Today I have the district manager of Kohl's calling me so I can interview him. Hopefully he wraps this thing up! Then I'll write it tonight at home in Taylorsville. I guess that's why they bought me a laptop, so I could come home and do this kind of crap. Ugh, life it so FULL right now. I need some calmness. I realized I'm still an individual this morning. That rocks. I love my self-reliance. Years from now, this will be a virtue. That or I'll be the crazy lady who lives alone with 12 cats. Whatever the case may be, I'm happy and that's all that matters. I'm off to grab some Starbucks. Nobody does a white chocolate mocha like they do....

Living Life in the Fast Foward
Gosh I haven't posted in forever. I guess it's because of Candace's problems with the site. I'll have to talk to her later about that. Anyways. I'm getting a little nervous right now. I have an interview in about 30 minutes. It's over the phone, but still. The butterflies are fluttering. My article will run in Monday's paper. I really need to take that paper and the last one to Mr. Steinmetz sometime. I think he'd enjoy seeing me in print!
So my Brad Pitt obsession has been boiling for days now. I found a page at that has every television appearance of Brad's since like 97. OMG. I've almost watched everything there. It's been a while since I've been this fascinated with a celebrity. I never understood what people saw in Brad Pitt, but you know what? I totally get it now. He's just got it. He's flipping amazing. Gosh...haha.
My life is going to be crazy up until Thanksgiving. One reason why: journalism. Yeah, 204 is working my butt off. But, I suppose it's a good thing! I registered for next semester's classes. Here is the run down.
Math 109:Intro to College Algebra
Philosophy 120: Intro to Logic
English 233: Literature and Identities
Political Science 101: Repeat cause of that former C
Philosophy 350: Death, Dying and the Quality of Life
Things could change. I'm trying to pick out a minor. Right now the frontrunners are Poli Sci and Sociology. I might add a sociology class to my schedule. Hmm...pondering. I'm off to interview. Whew..wish me luck!
