These magazines came today. Time for Stuart, Us Weekly for me. Embarrassing? Maybe. Stuart reads Us Weekly before I even get to it, though. Anyway, here's my thought: What kind of a world do we live in? On the cover of Time the story is "The Tragedy of Detroit"... On the cover of Us Weekly the story is "Heartbreak And a New Tragedy".


I'm looking up the exact definition of "tragedy". I wonder which mag is closer... ha

The Lost Symbol

Stuart read it before me in something like a day and a half. I, however, wanted the enjoyment to last longer than that so I have only been reading a few chapters a night since Monday. But I'm hooked. I find myself really looking forward to my reading time, and staying up later and later every night. I haven't finished it yet, but I really recommend it. It's addictive!


I Want My Closet to Have Hangers Like This

I looked at one of my favorite online stores today, TOAST, and this was its home page image. I seriously want my closet to look like this. Suddenly my plastic hangers are not my favorite.



Maybe no one watched these besides me, Stuart's studying, I'm a loser. But I can't stand Kanye West. He's such an idiot. He complete dissed Taylor Swift after she beat out Beyonce for the Best Female Video Award. She was giving her speech, he climbed on stage took the microphone from her and said "Taylor, congratulations, I'll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best music video's of all time. Sorry." Hands the microphone back to her, shrugs his shoulders and climbs off the stage. Not that I loved either music video more, but seriously? That is the rudest thing I've seen on that show. Anyway, I'm done ranting.


iPhoto Booth

Stuart and I were just sitting on the couch watching tv tonight and I decided it would be funny to take some pictures on my computer. When I opened up the program, what I found was way better. I don't know when they had a hold of my computer but these made us smile tonight.


New Idol Judge Announcement

Did anyone else hear this?

Ellen DeGeneres is going to be the new American Idol judge. I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I mean, anything will be better than Paula. She can be SO annoying. But I also feel like Paula is a staple in that show! It's going to be so strange not having her at that desk. And I'm still not sure how I feel about Kara. I'm a little afraid the show is falling apart.

Maybe no one cares about this, but I have been a loyal follower since Kelly Clarkson, Season One. So this news is sorta huge to me.


Labor Day Weekend

My brother, Blake, my sister, Lauren and some of their friends came to see us this last weekend and to play at the beach. It was so much fun to have them here. I didn't take a lot of pictures, unfortunately, but we did have a good time and have some nice suntans now.


I Guess Now It's Official

We have California plates and California licenses... looks like we're here for a while!


Mac OS X Snow Leopard

You make the dock on my Mac look better and I love the new look of the organization folders. Also, you take up 9GB less space than your predecessor "Leopard." That leaves much more room for things like music and pictures. Thank you for joining my at-home team.
