Forever Charmed

So, I finished watching Season Eight of Charmed. Regardless of the fact that it ended the way I knew it would, I enjoyed every ounce of it. I laughed, I cried, my heart fluttered when Phoebe fell in love. I can’t help it. I love Charmed. So they are witches and vanquish demons, it’s all for the greater good.

So now I’m looking for a new show to get hooked on. I was hooked on Grey’s for a little bit. I watched it religiously for two seasons. I’m over it. I just don’t see the point in watching an anorexic girl constantly crying about how depressing her life is and the continue pursuit of a man who really needs to grow some balls. Don’t get me wrong, Patrick Dempsey is hot, but Dr. McDreamy has lost his appeal.

Then there is Desperate House Wives. Again, I was hooked for about two seasons, but lost interest right away when I realized I live in that neighborhood. There is no use for me to watch it on TV when I get to experience the real deal.

There have been a couple of reality shows here and there, but nothing is really sucking me in. It’s kind of depressing.

So, I have contemplated my options and have come to this conclusion: I am Forever Charmed. I have no other choice but to order Charmed through my netflix. I’m going to start with Season One and work my way through it again. Nothing is cooler than three strong women with an awesome wardrobe kicking some major demon ass in heels.

Pizza, Beer and Rocks

Friday I took the day off and spent it with my guy frolicking around in Golden, Colorado. Days like this remind me of the awesome state I live in.

We started the day with an authentic Mexican breakfast at a new restaurant in my town. It was good stuff. I plan on visiting this restaurant frequently. Not only to support my weakness for Mexican food, but also to support his business. Where I live it is very suburban and very white. I have seen really good ethnic restaurants come and go due to this factor. It’s a shame.

Next we headed up to Golden, Colorado, our first stop was the Geology Museum at the School of Mines. We spent a good amount of time there coveting the earth’s treasures and fantasizing about trips we can take to acquire our own pretty rocks. I really got into rock hounding this past summer. I had always been interested but did not realize how accessible this hobby is. Colorado is a very mineral rich state and I have barely scratched the surface with places to explore. I have two very large containers full of rocks I collected this past summer and rocks in my house and at work. I am still finding rocks in jackets I have worn out rock hounding and in my car. People look at me funny because I will pick through the gravel at work in search of a hidden treasure. I will also be the proud new member of a local Rock Hounding group this Friday and will in the near future own a rock tumbler. Yes, I am a nerd.

We were going to go hiking and collect, you guessed it, rocks but the winds where pretty harsh and we did not want to deal with the mud and blowing snow. So that left us with no choice but to explore the Coors Brewery. The tour was awesome. We got to see how beer is made, bottled and shipped out. The smell was amazing! The best part of the tour was the 3 free beers you get at the end of the tour. Right on!

Our last stop was Woody’s Woodfired Pizza. Talk about good eaten! They have an all you can eat special for their salad bar, awesome pizza and fantastic Beer Cheese Soup. We also got there during happy hour, score!

To sum up our day; Mexican Breakfast – $13.00 Geology Museum –$ 0.00, Coors Tour – $0.00 Dinner at Woody’s $20.00. Move over Rachel Ray and let the geeks show you how to really have fun under $40.00

Resolution #8

I am a pool whore. I don’t care who I play, as long as I can play.

You see, pool is new to me. I mean, I’ve always been up for playing but I never took the game seriously until recently. I decided I would actually try playing pool non-slop. I had realized pool requires a strategic and analytical tactic. Right on. So, the first night I took the game seriously I kicked ASS. Yeah! That’s right, who’s you’re daddy? I made my man proud. Since then I’ve done O.K. I’m at a point where I’m thinking too hard about what I’m doing.

I think where I’m going wrong is the fact that I never took geometry. Math was always a struggle for me until algebra. Then I rocked. I achieved what I needed credit wise for math and got the hell out of there. I actually dropped out of geometry because I had all my math credits. Shit! Beyond the basic math needed to balance my checkbook I just didn’t think anything else would be necessary. Well, learn from me kids, geometry is a must!

I’m 5’3 and ¼ (the ¼ does count), and a buck 15, 18,20,15. I have the demeanor of someone you would be afraid to share offensive four letter words with (haha!). I have this fantasy; I’m a fuckin, rockin pool shark, ya! It’s a goal really. I don’t know why. I just think it would be cool to be the “little girl” who kicks ass. Don’t fuck with me. This is my alter ego coming out, I know it. Still, it would be cool.

Tuesday, January 1, 2008

As mentioned in my previous post I had resolved to complete my first charity knitting project by January 1st 2008 for Warm Woolies. I would spend all of December 31st working to accomplish this goal. Well, I’m here to report that I did not accomplish this goal as initially planned. I actually completed two projects!! A knitted hat and a matching set of my first mittens ever. They are so tiny and cute!

I really enjoyed these projects. Knitting is such a generous hobby and it feels good knowing that my hands created a gift of warmth and love. I hope that I have made these with the quality to last through many children. This was such a fun project my goal for 2008 is to knit at least one project for charity each month,

Well, I'm beat. I hope everyone had a great New Year!
