  And I Ran... I Ran so far away.
Okay, so this is odd. We don't know why, but this flock of seagulls landed in the parking lot of Ingles today. Apparantly, just a few seagulls had been hanging out there yesterday, during the ice storm. Today they brought their friends. This is in Loganville, Georgia. We are maybe 300 miles from any coast so this is just one of the strangest things we've seen in awhile. It does make me slightly nervous because either their navigator got a little mixed up, or there is some reason that seagulls are hanging out in Loganville. Anyway, here's the proof...


  Here are some pictures of the ice at night...
(we don't get much so we might as well document it!)

  Ice, Ice, baby!
Well, here are some pictures from our ice storm.

I'm so glad it is Friday. This has been such a stressful week. I've barely had time to breathe on top of being sick. And yes, I know that a lot of people are just as stressed or more stressed than me, I just complain a lot when I'm sick.

And, for some completely off-topic babbling, I would like to say that I don't think video games should be made into movies. We watched Resident Evil 2 last night. I wasn't thrilled about the first one. In fact I think I had blocked most of it out and we only saw it a couple of months ago. Anyway, although the first half was completely boring and I just kept thinking about what a waste of time it was to be watching it, the second half picked up a little bit and became mildly entertaining. But the point is, when a movie is made from a usually very loose video game plot, the movie just seems like a video game (look at Tombraider). It becomes a movie with a pretty stupid plot and the main character basically just goes through the movie doing acrobatic flips and stunts while fighting some kind of weird enemy. Sometimes there is a clear goal, sometimes not. But, the point is, if I wanted to sit and watch someone play a video game, I would have plenty of opportunity to do that without renting a movie to do it.

Movies based on comic books, on the other hand, can SOMETIMES be slightly more interesting, but in most cases they still bore me to tears (Daredevil, X-men, etc.). Batman and Spiderman were pretty entertaining though. Actually the best movies I've seen based on comic books were Ghost World and American Splendor, but those were a whole different genre of comic book.

  Metal Mouth
Eww! I am taking antibiotics, because I've been sick. The doctor warned me that one of the side effects is a metallic taste in my mouth. I didn't really think much of it, but, for the last 2 mornings that I've been taking the antibiotics I have had the WORST metallic taste in my mouth when I wake up!! So gross!

  I'm Eric
I did a test on (formerly emode) and I found out that of all of the That 70's Show characters I'm most like Eric. I was hoping to be more like Donna or Hyde, but oh well. At least I'm not Kelso or Jackie. And by the way, Tickle is now completely commercial now. All of the tests have sponsors.

  Happy Birthday, Corinne!
Today Corinne is 27. We saw In Good Company and ate at Johnny Carrino's. It was a fun day, but unfortunately I feel like I'm getting sick. I have been sneezing and coughing and on the way home I thought I might throw up. Ick! I told Austin that I'll go to the doctor tomorrow if I'm still feeling bad.

  Woo-hoo!!! A new cell phone!!!
After my old one bit the dust and after having to pay a monsterous cell phone bill every month, I now have a new cell phone. It has direct connect so I can talk to Austin for free and unlimited incoming calls, so you all can call me all you want on my cell phone and we can chat for hours! Fun! By the way, it's a Blackberry!

  Wisdom from the Wiggles
After watching about 4 hours of the same Wiggles episode on repeat this morning with Ethan, I think the most important lesson came when Ethan turned to me and said, "bees don't like pirates," in a very serious tone. Hmm. I would never have known that if it weren't for Ethan and the Wiggles.

  Lizards, computers, and doggies... Oh, my.


  Why, hello Mr. Lizard.
There is a lizard on my desk. I was sitting here working on my computer and talking on the phone when all of a sudden this lizard came running across my desk. I think he went to sleep. He seems to be a little bit wary of Holly.

  Just when you think things are slowing down a bit...
BOOM! You're so busy you can't even see straight! It has been one of those days!

  Pat & Jack's Surprise 25th Anniversary Party
Everyone was to wear 70's themed attire for the surprise party. Some people did, some didn't, but it was certainly a fun time. And, I'm convinced that the world would be a much better place if every party had a margarita machine!!! Okay, lots of photos here, so stay with me...
