This weekend I was hanging out with a friend of mine, having pizza and being entertained with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (the jury is still out on whether or not I liked this film). As I left I was given a copy of the first season of Alias, created by JJ Abrams (Lost) and starring Jennifer Garner (found hehe). I had one question upon finishing the series premiere episode: Where was I when this jewel of a show was on the air? I must have been under a rock contemplating the meaning of life (or why i was under a rock) because this show is phenomenal. From the storyline to the characters (i have a fit of the giggles everytime Marshall does his thing) to the soundtrack. Heck even the opening credits are fantastic. Its an addiction that needs to be fixed even as I type this.
My family had dinner at the OG (Olive Garden for all you non slang using folks) last night in honor of my moms birthday (she didn’t know my brother, sis-in-law and myself were going to be there so it was a nice surprise). Among the many conversations had, my brother mentioned that he was taking up the hobby of Aquariums. I never knew this was a hobby but with all the information he was feeding me from the differrent types of aquariums, salt water vs fresh water, and the expense of it, it sounded pretty legitimate. He says he and his wife need some ‘around the house’ activities to keep them busy. Go for it guys.
2010 will mark the beginning of my 31st year being alive on this earth, and to celebrate, i have decided that i want to go to the Winter Olympics, being held in Vancouver, Canada. I missed Salt Lake and Atlanta and I have a feeling the greatest games on the planet won’t be coming to a country near me anytime soon after this. So i have started a campaign to begin to save money, make plans, and get my olympic loving booty up north for at least a week. Wish me luck.
