We Are SUPER Exciting

So with Kailey moving back to Austin and in with me it allows us to spend a lot of time together again. And Kailey and I like to spend our time together doing awesome things like watching TV and watching movies and, um, well that is really it but we have fun!

Want to know how awesome we are? Well we spent one Friday night watching a silent Zorro movie and we followed that up with watching the AKC Dog Show the following night. Yeah. We live large.

When we began running out of shows to watch I asked Kailey is she had seen Leverage, since we both really enjoyed White Collar and Burn Notice I thought it might be something she would enjoy, and I hadn't seen the shows since they originally aired I thought I would like watching them again. We ended up watching all the aired episodes (seasons one and the first half of season two) in two nights. Two days later, I came home from school to find her watching season one again, she claimed to want to catch all the little things that you pick up on after seeing a lot of episodes and see if they were present in early episodes (in her defense it did explain why I was craving orange soda, talk about subliminal advertising). About a week later I was on my netflix account to look up something new to watch and what does it say in the corner??? Last Watched: Leverage Season One. Yeah Kailey, CAUGHT AGAIN!! I think she liked it.


Now I kinda want a snuggie.

Mission Accomplished

I just mailed a birthday card to my aunt (her birthday is on Saturday). Why am I telling you this? (Besides the obvious, its my blog and I get to do what I want)

1. This is an amazing event because as many of you have probably noticed, I don't send birthday cards. I try, I have everyone's birthday in my calendar set with a reminder for two weeks ahead of time so that I can get a card and mail it but it never happens.

2. I bought this card five years ago.

See I lived with my aunt and uncle for a short time and during that time (because of the type of people they are and because of the type of person I am) we accumulated a number of inside jokes - all of which are at the expense of one or more of the three of us. Then living in Santa Barbara five years ago I was at Gelson's and I found the PERFECT birthday card for my aunt so I bought it even though it was months until her birthday. I put it in a place where I would TOTALLY know where it was when I needed it and then I forgot where that place was. I found it a few months after her birthday and was all, "no problem, now I'll totally know where it is for her birthday this year." Nope, gone again. I think you can probably figure out the pattern of the last few years. BUT, today I sent it, I'm very excited.

I would also like to point out that despite misplacing it multiple times, I never lost it and I think we need to remember that I have moved four times (including inter-state!!) in those five years, and also that I have only unpacked one box in my bedroom since my most recent move and it happened to be the box with the card in it. I actually purposefully didn't want to unpack any other boxes when I found it because it has since been the only thing sitting on my bookcase for a month and I didn't want to unpack more and risk forgetting it again.
