I love a good movie

And Slumdog Millionaire is definitely one of those. I just got back from seeing it and I loved it! If you haven't seen it yet, you need to go. It's so good.

I think you guys may be right. I think I might have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder since I only ever feel this way during the long, cold, dark, grey, icy winter months. Ick. Bring on the sunlight! I'll read up on it for sure. And thanks for the kind words everyone, you definitely put some pep in my step today.

So tomorrow is finally Friday. Thank goodness. I'm really excited about this weekend. 

Tomorrow night I'm going to my Grandma's house for a sleepover party with my brother and sister. My Grandma has never had an "official" sleepover before (even though we used to stay over all the time), so for Christmas, that's what we gave her. We're heading over to her house right after work and making her a big spaghetti dinner and then we're going to get into our pajamas, cuddle up on the couch and watch the movies of her choice. She was so excited about it that she even went out and bought new afghans so we can each have maximum coziness. It sounds so relaxing...I can't even wait.

Then Saturday morning I'm getting up bright and early and heading up to Milwaukee for the Marquette vs. Georgetown game with my two friends. So that will be fun...and I finally get to see my boyfriend again after 3 long weeks. Hooray!

And Sunday I'm heading to my parent's house to see them since they just got back from Barbados and we'll hang out and watch the Super Bowl. I really only care about the commercials. For a total advertising nerd like me, this is one of my favorite nights of the year. I could care less about the actual game (confession: I don't even know who is playing in it this year), I just love the fun ads.

Oh and sidenote, I am SO excited that they ousted Governor Blagojevich. What an embarassment to Illinois. I mean seriously, how the hell did he actually get in office? He's crazy. I certainly didn't vote for him, I can tell you that much...yikes.

I can't believe the impeachment was so quick! Don't these things tend to drag out forever?

Sounds like a fun weekend!! I really want to see Slumdog Millionaire after all the awesome reviews and awards its gotten.

I laughed when I heard how quick they ousted Blagojevich, it's like they were all saying "Dude, get the F out - NOW!"

Cheryl said...

Sounds awesome! I hope you have a good weekend!

I'm glad Blagojevich is out too, thank goodness.

Have a fun sleepover! That's such a great idea.

The sleep over sounds like a blast! My cousins and my sister have been talking about doing something like that with our Grandma. Sounds like you're going to have a great weekend!

I saw Slumdog Millionaire and loved it too. Not sure if it's "best picture" but I did enjoy it. Heavy movie.

Hopefully I'll be seeing it in the next few weeks, I think it only came out last week here?

I do like football, so I do watch the game, but I was mad they didn't show the commercials over here but Bruce was AMAZING at halftime, and then I went to bed.

And i totally get you about Galway, I haven't done a million things in Cork and I've lived here for almost 2 years total now!
