Blogging

I know. I know. I’ve haven’t been THE best blogger lately. I’ve been really busy. Just got back in the country Monday night from a trip to The Bahamas. The hospital has been keeping me REALLY busy and have learned that x-rays, are NOT my friend! I don’t have a keen eye for it yet. Luckily that won’t be my forte! I still need to train myself to spot abnormalities.

Some guy told me and 3 other interns that he wanted an adult to work on him. I swear I’ve seen that on an episode of ER or Grey’s Anatomy… something. Who knows really. People have their preferences and,if he thinks we look like 13 year olds then, what am I to do, I just walked away.

I’ve been trying to forgive some people and be a lot nicer but I always turn out to be the bad guy. What’s up with that? I was told I should let it go and forgive. Easier said than done when you feel you’ve been wronged and whatever you do goes unnoticed.

Anyways… new year. New choices. I will try to blog A LOT more and keep it interesting!

When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican’s only hope for survival.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Overstock.com commerical

Ok. I’ve been seeing this commercial a lot lately and I think it’s a cute one. Apparently, they’re a real traveling singing couple and what not! I didn’t think that they were. Like usual, I thought they were two actors hired for their ads?! If you haven’t seen it, here’s a clip

So,I did some more research and found this video! It’s a clip of an audition tape they sent into a show called,”Can You Duet”? Never heard of it! Anyways,the clip is called, “Love Story” and here it is

They are too cute! Seriously? How have they NOT gotten any bigger than this? Cute couple with good voices! Gives ya hope that there’s REAL love out there huh?

Blogging

So,I’ve been blogging for maybe, 2 months now. I recently came over to wordpress and I can’t find any themes I like,so I am constantly changing to find something I can settle with. I am getting frustrated with it because I am having some issues adding a new theme from somewhere else. I found some widgets that I want to put on there but, that’s not working too well for me either. Maybe I’m just blog design illiterate. and I should just leave it alone for now and,hopefully, it all comes together.

The thing is. I can’t just leave it alone. I want it done and I want it to look good. I mean,I’m not doing it for monetary value or anything,just fun…something for me to do when I get mad or bored.  I’m going to try not to let it bother me because it’s not rocket science. It can’t be too hard,right? Nah,of course not. Ok. This one will be really short tonight..

Kath and Kim (U.S.),interesting TV show

Kath and Kim,is the U.S. version of an Australian TV show which chronicles the relationships of Kath (Molly Shannon) and Kim(Selma Blair) that live in Florida. 

Kathleen “Kath” Day is the mom, 40-something divorcée who finally has time for herself and her valiant search for love. Her daughter, Kimberly “Kim” Day, is in her mid 20’s but dresses like a teenager, constantly eating as a way to console herself, and is obsessed with celebrities. When Kim decides to move back home after separating from her husband, Craig, who works at a Circuit Surplus,a.k.a Circuit City.

 

Also making their lives complicated are their significant others. Phil Knight, Kath’s boyfriend, is a decent but dorky man in his mid 40’s who owns a sandwich shop at the mall food court and has a difficult time getting along with Kim no thanks to her disapproval of her mother’s relationship. Kim’s husband, Craig Baker, has his hands full trying to deal with her dominating personality which explains their separation. Here’s a clip from the premiere episode

 

I thought it was funny and it wasn’t very bad humor either. I see some potential but there are already some reviews out there that are essentially, comparing it to the original. They don’t like it, and says, it’s horrible and it probably won’t air in Australia. Why compare it? I don’t think NBC’s intention is to make an exact copy of the Australian version. Is it? They are catering to the American audience and what they may like. Molly Shannon actually played a good mother stuck in what looks like the Olivia Newton-John video,”Let’s Get Physical”.

Parents and The Olympics

So,I talked to my mom today(she still lives in The Bahamas) for maybe 7 minutes before my sister and my mom got into a huge argument over the phone,forgetting it’s long distance shot my bill through the roof. I did a conference call because my sister’s phone doesn’t do long distance,I don’t know what kind of half assed phone she has…

Long story short. My mom pretty much hung up on us and I didn’t know until we were waiting on a reply from her and I looked at my phone and, there she was, GONE! My mom is short-tempered and very aggressive when she gets angry. My sister is a lot like her and doesn’t know it and it pisses her off when my mom gets loud with her. Like mother,like daughter huh? I’m kinda getting the hang of this blogging thing so much so,that this, is my second one for the night.

I can’t sleep. The Olympics are done so I don’t really have a reason to stay up and watch the replay of the days events. I really centered my life around the Beijing Olympics. Sad? I think not. China rolled out the red carpet and the brown muggy air to show that they are not the China of the past. Really? Darfur? Under-aged gymnasts? Look at that chick and tell me if she doesn’t look 13? I don’t know if they’re like Western world kids(I doubt it) but she should be worrying about sleep overs and horribly subbed “Hannah Montana” episodes than having her name dragged through the international press about an age cover-up! But they say the Westerns are big because they use drugs. Then,why are Asians so small or of short stature? Because they don’t? Maybe it’s the polluted air,it stunts their growth or something but it turns them in athletic machines. Scary.

I can definitely say,China did a clean sweep of diving(all gold medals except one) and their goal to get the most gold medals was a very noble feat. The stories we hear about their athletes training is like boot camp, is a little weird but whatever they do,it works and they have the medals to show for it. As for overall medal count, The U.S. definitely won that round 110 medals! Top 5 countries USA,China,Russian Federation,Great Britian and Australia.

I was always a big fan of the Olympics and I’m sure London won’t let China show them up and they will make Britannia proud in 2012. New York lost to London to host the Olympics…again but Chicago threw a bid in to host in 2016, I’m hoping for a win there. Do I hear road trip?! Their event stadiums had really creative names though. “The Bird’s Nest” where Track and Field was held and The U.S. Men’s and Womens Teams dropped the batons in the semifinals for the 4x100M relay but later showed the world how it’s done in the 4x400M relays. “The Water Cube” where Michael Phelps showed his dominance in swimming and also shut the French relay team up after they were talking smack about how they were gonna take the Americans down! Doesn’t anyone else wonder what goes on in the Olympic Village at night,when all the events are done? Some food for thought.
