it's so sporty, I dunno..

so budd's car was damaged in a hail storm, and apparently it was totalled.
he's fixing to buy some kind of mazda that looks super sporty.
he seems really excited about it, but between you and me... I'm worried he's gonna go zooming right into a tree or something.
anyhow.. looks like we'll be taking a day trip this weekend to go grab it.
I'd been thinking about getting him a 'grats on the car' gift, but I can't think of anything good. I considered an fm transmitter for his ipod, but with how badly the one we got lus worked, I'm fresh out of ideas.
maybe an air freshner?

I do like honey

so! any self-respecting star trek fan would have seen it by now.
first thing out of budd's mouth after the movie was, "I dunno what the big deal is - Vulcan's not there in the series."
me and all his friends were like, "..."

we grilled this past saturday! finally used budd's christmas gift, and it was totally awesome. I'd been jokingly looking at getting an umbrella and a couple of outdoor chairs but now I think I might be serious.
all day it was on the verge of raining so we didn't have to deal with ridiculously hot weather. and omg lus makes some delicious fries.

I went to pampa this last week for training, and it was pretty useless.
I was super busy so there wasn't much training from me to them or from them to me.
it was, however, quite nice to put faces with names.
my new boss is not what I expected.
he also hinted at something my last boss had told him, like he wanted me to ask what she'd said about me. I thought that was really weird, and I think overall I'm gonna stick with not putting much faith in his word.
don't get me wrong - I'd love to be surprised... I just doubt I will be.

and you should watch ip man. it's pretty fucking great.

sooooo ready to go home

I'm in pampa (a teeny tiny town just big enough for one nice hotel but not big enough for any proper restaurants) for training.
and the hotel is nice... waffles make me happy ^_^
I took a pic of one this morning because the little pre-poured servings of waffle batter don't have enough batter so I had a hollow waffle, lol
I get to go home tomorrow, and am looking forward to spending a little time cuddling on the couch with budd while watching the blood of heroes and cursing at the cat.

so holy shit

2 complaints, though I can't discuss one of them since it's a bit of a spoiler..
the other complaint (and it's a big one) is that it was much MUCH too loud.

and omg!
first thing out of budd's mouth!
again, a spoiler... ugh!
all I will say is, budd has no right to claim himself as a star trek fan.

I'll fill ya in next week or so.
in the mean time... I think karl urban is pretty hot, but him as bones... he's so dreamy ^_^

I'm counting the hours

did you see charlie's angels?
the new ones? with cameron diaz?
when the guy's like, "I've got tickets" and she's like, "I LOVE tickets!"
I totally feel that way right now.

things that I love

I'm incredibly excited about the movie tonight... we've got tickets for the 10pm showing. I'd been hoping to go see it at an imax theater as well, but nerys surprised us with kitty vomit this morning, so I'm not sure that'll happen anymore.
it's gotten a ton of good reviews and that kind of worries me, but I guess we'll see. budd & I are going tonight and my sis & I are going tomorrow.

also, have I mentioned how much I like dollhouse?
I think the main character chick is super hot, only her lips are always too shiny. I think the chick that plays mellie is gorgeous. like, if I could choose to look like someone, it'd be her.
I think it's great and just wish I didn't have to wait a week between episodes.
I'm also pretty interested in seeing if it'll get canceled in the first season.

one of the guys I work with knows someone who works at a local nursery (plants not children) so I'm gonna go apply there tomorrow. 'cause working here sucks.
I'm the only tech out of the lubbock office, and when the jesus fan left I got all these shiny new responsibilities to go with all my old responsibilities. and no pay raise! not even a new title!
supposedly we're hiring, but not like I can recommend working here to anyone.
