Random on Monday

A few items of note on this seventh day of December, 2009:

Firstly: I have finished all of my ornaments this weekend. I am only doing 35 this year. Usually I make about 70 and give them to anyone and everyone. This year...You have to be V.I.P to get one.

-With this I have also mailed all of my Christmas cards and ornaments out to respective parties, officially, as of today. Done. El Fin.
-I had a few painting crafts to complete as well. To be precise I had to paint up five different door hanger decorations for various folks. I completed this on Saturday, while watching The Wrestler (great film ps. by the way).

-My HUGE project for my friends date of birth is almost complete. I have very minor things left to complete. I decided to focus on my Christmas requirements first this weekend since I got so ahead of the game last weekend with this. I still have a week and a half yet to prepare this for her.

-Watched Paper Heart on Sunday. It's a documentary following around the quirky gal Charlene Yi (from Knocked Up) around the U.S. to interview people on "What is Love?".

It was actually really very cute and sweet. I quite liked it. Plus Michael Cera is in it. Michael Cera is seriously "like, the coolest person I've ever known, and he don't even have to try, you know.." (*juno) *sigh* Love him

-Some really good movies are making their way to DVD in the coming weeks. Firstly, Harry Potter 6 is out tomorrow. I asked Santa for this so I have to wait. Damn him!!!!!!
Also coming, Public Enemies, The Hangover, 500 Days of Summer, It Might Get Loud and Taking Woodstock. Super Excited to hear that Inglorious Basterds is coming out next Tuesday.
Anyone left who has not seen this one please rent it/Net Flix it/buy it. It's amazing.

-Anyone familiar with Ricky Gervais??? He's simply decadent. I could just eat him up. You know him..The Office (BBC...100x better than the US version), Extras (brilliant), Ghost Town, the Invention of Lying. Just downloaded two new Audiobooks. He does this hiliarious series with Steve Merchant called Ricky Gervais Guide To... they discuss Science, Politics, English and the newest Law and Oder. Some of the funniest stuff I have ever heard. I also got a few new podcasts of his to listen to this week. It makes work go by so much faster and I'm sure it makes me look like a nutter because I will randomly start laughing out of no where. muwahaha

-Got hotel accommodations situated for NJ on New Years. I also, finally, remembered to request off early on the day so we can get up to Atlantic City early. Should be interesting. Can't wait to see my manz. <3

-I am excited to be asked to help raise money for an organization called Throw Aways who help house, spay and neuter and adopt stray cats. Every year they run a promotion where you can bring your cat or dog to have a picture with Santa. My daddy plays Santa and my Ma is the helper Elf. I was asked to make custom cupcakes to sell at one of their events. I am super excited and prepared to bake four dozen. I love to volunteer and give when I can but sometimes it so hard to find time. This project is perfect. Or Purrrfect. ha ha ha..wow the puns are coming out so it's time for me to wrap this up.

Hope everyone's Monday is going well. Cheers to check marks on all of your to-do lists!!

Ooooh, I shall have to try those audiobooks: I love The Office (the British one, I've never seen the American one)!

Richard-You should they are so hilarious!

Thanks for mentioning the Ricky Gervais audiobooks, I'd downloaded them a while ago and not got round to listening to them. Reminded by your blog, I finally listened to their guide to Medicine last night, great stuff. Have you read his Flanimals books? One of the cool things about Christmas this year is I'll finally be able to read the pop-up Flanimals book that I've brought my nephew as a present.

I'm glad you gave it a listen. I am excited for the new one they have coming out 22 of December, ti's the RG Guide to the Future.
That man is the funniest man alive..haha.
Well, I don't know..maybe Steve Merchant is a close second. I can't get enough of them. The Society Guide was one of the funniest in the series.
I am re-watching Extras on DVD now. Have you ever seen that show? It's just brilliant.
Also, super excited he is hosting the Golden Globes this year. I will be watching because of this :)

Forgot to mention the Flanimals..I have not read these but I saw some stuff on his website a few months ago that he had some pop up books out. I may have to purchase a few to take a look.
I'm sure they are great if he's involved :)

An Eerie Tapestry December 14, 2009 at 4:17 PM  

Penny, yes I've seen all of Extras.

Have to try and listen to his Society guide next.

It's only the latest Flanimals book that's a pop up; the first four were normal books (well, non-pop-up at least). They're children's books but I enjoyed them (looks like you can look inside the first one at amazon.com).

Penny December 14, 2009 at 4:44 PM  

I just looked them up. I may try to get them after Christmas :)
Thanks for the tip on the first one. I will have a look when I get home!
