Krez’s last post talked about good DVDs and Len & I both mentioned that we like A Charlie Brown Christmas (1956). Tonight, as I flipped through the TV, I ran across opening credits with Snoopy & friends playing in the snow. I was all overjoyed thinking I was about to catch one of my favorite Christmas specials. Low and behold, it was NOT!!! Instead, it’s All I Want For Christmas is a Dog, Charlie Brown (2003). Hmpf. It’s not terrible but it’s not what I was expecting. And on top of that, there’s really nothing much else on TV. Oh well. I’ve got an apartment to clean anyways. *shrug*
I do have to say that a quote I like from the movie is, “Rerun: Sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.” (Rerun is Lucy & Linus’s youngest brother.)
I must comment on how dry the air is! A cold front blew in last night and it’s been below 60 degrees (which is sweater weather in Austin). Because the front was a high pressure front, it’s a dry front. It’s so dry outside that as I was coming home, I was talking to my mom with my cell phone headset in and I kept getting shocked in my ear as I walked up the 3 flights of stairs to my apartment! I don’t recommend static shocks in the ear. They don’t feel so good.
It’s 49 degrees out and raining here in Austin. I love this weather. Too bad I’m all alone this weekend.
Last night, my best friend Cathy (yes, my best friend’s name is Cathy, too) and I got together in her new house, had some soup she made and wine. We hadn’t seen each other much lately because our schedules are totally opposite so we had a lot of catching up to do. Really a great evening. Just what I needed after a long day of sitting in a room, listening to high school flute players all day.
I’ve got so much to do today. When marching season ended, I decided that I was going to declutter my apartment. I knew this was going to be quite the process because I’ve grown up being a pack-rat. If you’ve ever gone through the major decluttering process, you know that in order to do it right, you’ve got to create quite a bit of organized chaos in order to filter out what you don’t need and put what you do need to keep in it’s respective place. My apartment is an absolute wreck!!! My cats wanna curl up with me and sleep (which doesn’t sound like a bad idea with this weather out) but I know I have to continue on with my endeavors.
I am going to get a massage this afternoon. That will be good. 🙂
