If you lost your job, could you still pay rent/mortgage, buy food? For how long? Suddenly, spending money at the bars and buying clothes seems absolutely ludicrous to me.
After watching this show, I want to not spend a single cent on anything. Because....you never know.
We ended up going out last night, too. We came home to make tacos and then went out to DANCE. We went to 2 bars that had DJ's and danced. It was fun.

(THis is not the actual dog)
I got my iPhone. Whenever you get a new phone, you don't know how to use it for a few days & that is me right now. This thing is pretty cool. Just the screen alone and how you can see legit web pages is awesome. Flip the phone on the side, and you have a widescreen.
Plug your headphones in and you can hear your phone call so much clearer. There are a million applications you can put on your phone. You can download a level and use your phone as a level if you are doing a project. Crazy.
The phone also doubles as an Ipod. I just dragged my songs on it and now I have an ipod, too.
Well, so far, I think it's cool and I am glad I got it!

Next, she told me I should be using an electric toothbrush because it is a better way to clean your mouth. Luckily, the dentist office sells them at COST. I got an Oral-B Triumph for only $65! If you even tried to buy this on Amazon, it is $120. Amazing.
Finally, I told the dentist how I take my mouthguard out in the middle of the night. Turns out I am grinding my teeth on that thing now & despite the hard plastic, have work part of that down too. I am going back next week to see if he can alter it so I can't do that anymore. But, basically, I have to wear it or else I will grind my teeth into stubs.
So, I left the dentist with a new toothbrush. Thank God for Healthcare Flexible Spending!

Next Bachelorette Prediction: Jillian

I am so happy Sean Penn won best actor last night. I haven't even seen Milk but I have seen clips and read a lot about this movie. I really appreciate that they made this film - I only wish it came out in October before Election Day. Maybe then, we wouldn't have passed Prop 8. Marriage shouldn't be a privelge for men & women. All people should be able to marry. Look how good male/female marriages work out anyway - a divorce rate of 50%!
If two people want to get married, let them. Why should anyone stop them!?

Lead Actor: Mickey Rourke (I was WRONG and I am happy because I wanted Sean Penn to win!)
Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger (Right!)
Lead Actress: Kate Winslet (Right!)
Supporting Actress: Marisa Tomei (Wrong!)
Animated Film: Wall-E (Right!)
Best Picture: Slumdog Millionaire (Right!)
However......last week, the Bachelor host said there is now going to be two 'After the Final Rose' ceremonies because of something 'so dramatic' happening.
Well, I love spoilers and wanted to find out what was going on and I did....If you want to go know what is going on, you can read all about the finale on RealitySteve.com This guy has the inside scoop and seems pretty reliable. I guess we will find out on March 2nd though to see if he was right.
Is he who we think he is???
While home sick on Friday, I found the movie Annie on demand, for free. Of course, I watched it because I love that movie. I must have watched that movie hundreds of times growing up. I love the songs.
It's funny how you watch a movie a million times when you are younger and then when you watch it when you're older, you see different things in the movie. For instance, when Grace is at the orphanage picking out an orphan for Mr. Warbucks:
Grace: "How about this little girl?"
Ms. Hannigan: "Annie? You don't want Annie."
Grace: "Why no?"
Ms. H: "She's a drunk!"
She's a drunk? I mean that is hilarious. Anyway, it's free on demand so if you love it, watch it!
CC is known for their desserts since the chef did write a dessert cookbook. However, we weren't in the mood and Erik wanted a crepe from a place near our house, anyway. We probably offended our server by saying no to dessert but oh well.
I'm glad we tried this restaurant since we've been wanting to go for awhile however, I would not go back. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone either since there are plenty of other, cheaper restaurants in the city which are better.

I'm so excited. We just made reservations for dinner at Citizen Cake! We've been wanting to go here for so long. The Executive Chef is Elizabeth Falkner who has been on Iron Chef & has been on Food Network competitions. It should be good!
Down the street from Citizen Cake is Absinthe, where Top Chef contestant Jaime Lauren is the Executive Chef. Unfortunately, I think that restaurant smells and they have crappy service.
So. I fixed it.
Yes, I colored in the bleach spots with a sharpie & it looks fine and no one knows & I saved the shirt!
Quite a few Taco Bell customers probably wanted to run away from the border this week!
Someone hacked into a Taco Bell drive-through radio system in Sedalia, Mo. and then shouted obscenities at consumers, ABC15.com reported.
ABC15.com also reported:
Authorities are speculating that for the hackers to have interfered with the radio frequency, they must have been nearby the Taco Bell.
Taco Bell employees plan to press charges if the pranksters are found.

Watching this reminded me of when VW made the commercial of this movie and used 'Singin in the Rain' with Gene Kelly. They used special effects to have him dance differently.
The sun finally came out so I took Evie to Alamo Sq. There was a lot of mud so she ran and jumped in it. She looked like a little piggy. Then, she got her bath & went to sleep. Sleepy May is my favorite.
I am watching a Paranormal State Marathon. I wish I could visit the Warren museum when I go back to CT. It may have closed since Ed Warren died b/c I can't find it on their web page. spooooky.

We had really great plans for V-Day. We were going to go down to a winery in Half Moon Bay with 2 of our friends, have lunch, have a chocolate tasting there. Instead, we were at the ER, Safeway picking up perscriptions, and I went to Target & food shopping. Oh well....it is only an hour or so away & we can another time!
I am hoping Erik feels better very soon though & I don't get it!! I lysoled the house and cleaned and changed the sheets and everything to keep everything clean. I don't want germs around.

Last friday, I did happy hour. This friday, I had an awesome dinner with Amy. I just want to point out that is 2 Fridays in a row people. I'm off next Friday aka staying home! Anyway, we went to this awesome sushi place, Umami. I had never been there but had heard it was great & they had this 'amazing' dessert involving cookie dough.
Here is the menu:
We had the Buttercup, Geki-Kara, Three Samurai, and the New York. All were to die for. We also had dessert which is essentially a cookie dough & vanilla ice cream sushi roll. The outside is cookie dough, inside ice cream. Yes, it did feel like I was eating spoonfuls of cookie dough and it was GOOD. I cannot wait to go back here. I would put this in the top 3 sushi places in the city along with Domo and Ozumo.

So, I checked my leg over the week. Seemed fine. Today, I checked and there was a little red bump & looked like a pricker was in it. So I took tweezers and was trying to pull it out. This gross but - it wouldn't come out so I squeezed the skin and the pricker came sliding up and out. GROSS. But now I know I won't get an infection. ick!!
A dog walker picked up more than canine poop yesterday morning. Around 7:30pm, the pooch puller discovered a dead body at Corona Heights Park. According to reports, "there was no obvious sign of trauma to the body, and police are calling it a 'suspicious death.'" No word yet as to whether unidentified stiff died of natural causes

In an effort to ease prison overcrowding, a panel of federal judges "tentatively ruled that California must release tens of thousands of inmates." (Please release Susan Atkins! Please release Susan Atkins! Please release Susan Atkins!) Though a hard number will be decided on later, the plan is to significantly reduce the numbers of inmates in two to three years. According to AP, the judges went on to say that "no other solution will improve conditions so poor that inmates die regularly of suicides or lack of proper care." Released prisoners will be of the low-risk variety.
Anyway, I had 2 bags because one is for the gym. This really nice old woman was sitting in front of me as I was standing. She offered to hold one of my bags for me. How nice is that. I declined but thought was thoughtful of her.
I woke up this morning just tired & had a stomachache. I still don't feel that well but I want to go to my core class today. We'll see....
