Why do I get so bummed at New Year's? It has been a very good year. And this year is supposed to be even better, right? I should be happy.

Great weekend! I went out for sushi on Saturday night with some friends and had a great time, then went to see Black Swan. I loved watching that movie. Best film I've seen in a while.

Today I went over to Lisa's place and a bunch of us watched Tron then went out to see Tron Legacy in 3D. Not terrible, but not that great either.

I even managed to get some Christmas shopping done. I am mostly finished finding gifts- Aside from some little pickups, I just need something for my Mom and something for Granny. I usually get Granny a book or a movie or both. Any suggestions for a good book that my Granny would like? Last year I got her The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory, and she loved it.

Meanwhile I'm watching Seinfeld DVDs. I'm up to Season 4. It's the Chocolate Babka episode. It gets me all excited for Christmas Eve dinner at Granny's. She is sure to have babka! And carrot cake, and fruit cake...

:)

Merry Christmas!

I saw this meme and got curious. Alex and I have a little different taste in movies... can you tell?

Netflix Meme
Go to Netflix, reblog the Top 5 Recommended Fields for you. (Note: Your Netflix may go to a different home page, you need to go to http://www.netflix.com/MemberHome to see the weird categories)

1. Gory Horror Movies on Blu-ray
2. Visually-striking Quirky Sci-Fi & Fantasy
3. Scary Cult Movies from the 1980s
4. Goofy Space-Travel TV Shows
5. Visually-striking Dark Thrillers

I think our October Horror Film challenge (watch as many horror films as possible during the month of October) has skewed us greatly. We've been watching Red Dwarf lately, too... apparently there's an ENTIRE CATEGORY dedicated to Goofy Space-Travel TV Shows. Listed under that category: Futurama, Futurama, MST3K, Futurama... when I clicked to the next page it was more of the same, with Hitchhiker's Guide and an animated Spaceballs series included as well. Not much of a category. And I got excited to find more!

Another successful Gooble!

Pictures Here

Last night was my Tenth Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Pot Luck Party. Despite the snow and ice, we had a great turnout and had a blast. I'm so glad I started this tradition.

Tonight, Alex and I are trying something new. Every year we spend so much time getting ready for Gooble that it's no fun spending the next day cooking. Last year we spent something like 4-5 hours preparing a 20 pound turkey for just the two of us. Then another 2 hours cleaning up. So much work for just one meal for only 2 of us! So this year we aren't making a turkey. We're going to make sushi instead!

We have raw salmon, tuna, and tilapia, plus some eel and fake crab. We also have 3 different kinds of seaweed salad and some potstickers. We have a variety of vegetables and garnishes to include as well. It's going to be a feast! I'm also making pumpkin pie for dessert.

I'll post pictures later. It's going to be a picturesque meal. :)

This is it! I've finally finished! There are 30 pictures below the cut.
I tried very hard to post a wide variety of photos you haven't seen a million times before.
THIRTY AMAZING PHOTOS. My life is so fantastic.

30 Days of Photographic Memories

day 30. a photo of you when you were happy.
I looked at a lot of pictures for this last one, and I kept coming back to this:
CIMG8009
It's really just the happiest picture I have. Look how happy!

This meme has been AWESOME and I'm sad that it's over. :(
Maybe I'll do it again next year. :)

(I'm re-posting every 5 days now.)

Ok, I really want to do this. Because I love photos.
I can't guarantee I'll do one EVERY every day. But I'll try.

Changing the date of the post doesn't do much but I will come in and edit to add a photo each day. Every once in a while I'll repost the whole thing, but don't worry, I'll keep it under cuts.

Alex and I are brainstorming for Save-The-Date ideas.

How about we take some Little Debbie brownies, squish them up into cat-poop forms, spell out "SAVE THE DATE! MAY 22 2011" with them in the bathtub, take a picture, and put it on a magnet?

Yeah, brilliant, I know.

day 25. a photo of a night you loved
Resisting posting more engagement photos...
201
New Year's Party, ringing in 2008 in Rochester with Nik & Anya.
Alex and I drove up to Rochester with his sister Vicky and we had a freaking awesome time.
This was the kind of party where we danced on the dining room chairs and banged pots all night.
And drank lots and lots of champagne. I want our wedding to be like that. :)

Scott and Laura coming out of the rapids
That's actually Scott and Laura on the Lehigh River, but I took the picture.
I miss canoeing so much! I used to go 2-3 times a year, now I'm luck to go once.
That is a great batch of pictures, btw. Weekend Canoe Trip, July 2007.
