Football Sundays are back

Currently listening to: Sunday morning football

Well I am up to the same-o same-o. In the middle of school and work and boy does time just fly by.

Last night went to eat at Thanh Long with some friends...boy I never get tired of that place. Yummiest crab you will ever have and the garlic noodles ain't too shabby either.

Night before I checked out SuperBad. Pretty funny IMO. Did some laughing out loud in the movie theatre and that's all you're looking for with movie like that isn't it?

So I am currently participating in this football suicide pool. You pick a team each week to win but can never pick that team again. You are alllowed up to two entries. This week I picked Dallas and San Diego. I'll keep ya' posted on how I do. Needless to say, this is the only way you are going to actually get me to pay attention to football.

Currently listening to: Background noise

Wow, long time no see. Ok, so Europe was fantastic although we probably caught a pretty bad heatwave. In short:

Venice: Nice to see once, but we won't be coming back

Florence: Beautiful, our favorite city visited. We hope to come back and see other parts around Florence

Rome: Flippin' hot...besides that, all the major landmarks are here and it is quite surreal to see them in person.

Athens: Same thoughts as Venice (was also VERY hot)

Mykonos: Beautiful and relaxing

Santorini: Most beautiful of all...can't even begin to describe the sunsets here.

Have a short weekend trip to Seattle coming up. Never been, but I am sure it will be fun. I am stocking up on my vacations now as I have a full load with school (15 units!) and work next semester...ugh.

I'll just try and remember these images as I suffer in homework hell:

The beautiful city of Florence

The best Cappucinos ever!

A Santorini sunset...

Okay, one more Santorini sunset...

Feeling this relaxed and content :)

Ah - and so finally Europe in sight

Currently listening to: Bubbly - Colbie Caillat

Yep - FINALLY...we get to go to Italy and Greece. Yay!

Here's the breakdown:


Three weeks - longest vacation I have ever had...or I should say will have.

I better get my ZZZZ's...

Sunsets can set your mood

Currently listening to: The Blower's Daughter - Damien Rice

It's great when you have a long weekend. What can be greater than that? A sunset...

Here's what I saw tonight about 7:04pm:

Awww... puts you in the right mood doesn't it? Had to pull over and capture it.

So glad we get tomorrow off...

Bad Blogger

Currently listening to: My fingers on the keyboard

Wow - long time no see my friendly blog. I'll try and be guarantees though.

Let's see - two movies watched this past weekend: Spiderman 3 and Shrek the Third. I'm sorry to say folks, but keep your money and wait for DVD... or TV for that matter.

I saw Spiderman on the IMAX, and although the action sequences were good...the rest could have used major help. Not enough build-up of the villains...and too many villains. Shrek was entertaining and had it's funny moments - but not much of a storyline to hold it together. Oh well - we had our movie popcorn and that's what counts.

School's out and I am taking the summer off. We plan to vacation to Italy and Greece - I can't wait.

Weird Dreams

Currently listening to: Fidelity - Regina Spektor

A Happy President's day to all and belated Chinese New Year....

I slept in today until 9:40am and it was great. However, had some pretty weird dreams. Like I was going to college and living on campus in a dorm room that looked like a hotel room and one of my teachers was Claire Huxtable....yeah you heard me right.... Don't know what to inerpret from that one.

Today I really need to get my presentation together for my Abnormal Psych class but I am in a lazy mood. Maybe I just need a good dose of caffeine.

Coast to coast and back

Currently listening to: The TV in the background...

Wow - so glad to finally be home. Took a trip last night on a red-eye flight after class to Charlotte, North Carolina. Had a couple meetings scheduled there today. Unfortunately when I arrived, what was forecast as "flurries" turned in to a few inches of snow - a record as a matter of fact for Charlotte and surrounding areas. All schools were closed and so were most businesses. Seeing this on the news, I still tried proceeding to my meeting. So while most of the residents were having fun on their snow day:

This is what I was enduring while trying to still cling to hope that my meetings were actually going to happen:

I did make it to the client safely - but the meetings were cancelled as most people stayed home because of the weather. I did see about 8 accidents on my very short trip from the airport to the client.
I quickly decided to book a trip back to San Francisco right away instead of staying the night - afraid it would freeze over. That was an ordeal in itself - barely made a connection in Phoenix running like heck to catch my flight. Screaming kids sitting behind me. And for all my flights, I probably slept a total of 2 hours. Cranky cranky...
So here I am, back home. Spent a whopping four hours in Charlotte. They want me to come back next week for a reschedule - I think I need to rest before deciding on that one....

We are Dreamgirls...

Currently listening to: Fergaliscious - Fergie

Just saw Dreamgirls tonight... It had much better acting then I thought. However, I am puzzled as to why Jennifer Hudson would be considered a "supporting" actress? She's the main chracter in the movie! Interesting. For those of you a little weary about seeing a "musical", most of the music in the movie is in the performances. So yes, they do converse - no snapping singing and dancing the entire time.

Yesterday went to see Babel... and after seeing a movie like that last night - you need something musically uplifting like Dreamgirls for today.
