Why I like Thursdays

This is the last night of the week that I have to sleep without Jeff.

I get to watch The Office and 30 Rock {two of my favorite shows}

The fact that I can't sleep until 1:30 in the am doesn't matter as much because the girls have late start on Friday...so an extra hour of sleep...I love sleep.

If it's payday the next day, I take the girls and I out to dinner after Lindsay's ballet. Tonight we went to Skippers.

It's weekend eve. Who doesn't like something with eve tacked on at the end?

I feel happier on this day than on any other one leading up to it.

Thursday is my netflix day. I have to finish watching all of my selections and return them in order to get fresh ones for the weekend. Today I finished Gossip Girl Season 1 disk 2...don't judge me, I'm sharing a guilty pleasure with you. Moliere. One word, no two, FABULOUS and Breathtaking. OK, that was technically three if you count the and. The third selection was My Best Friends Girl. I sat through about 5 minutes of it, decided 5 minutes was overly generous, and turned it off. In my opinion it was pure TRASH! I was also deceived, I thought it was PG-13, but they sent me the unrated version. I hate unrated versions of movies, for so many more reasons than it is guaranteed to be more raunchy. I am strongly suspecting that that movie was never PG-13 to begin with. I think Jeff put it in the que.

Thursday feels like a fresh start. On Thursday I think, tomorrow will be better, and it is.

i love thursday cause it means you posted! boy have i missed you. been needing a heidi-fix something fierce!
have felt let down on the past few blockbuster selections lately too: "fame"-AWFUL. terrbily done. no emotional attachment for me, and i usually auto-attach to anything regarding dance/singing/theater. (don't judge me either)..."julie & julia"-infectiously adorable perspective of julia child, UNTIL THE LANGUAGE pops up out of nowhere & we were watching it with mini-me!!! sooooo disappointed!..."mad money" (i know its old)-really i kinda liked ted danson's character, but not the storyline. greed=lowered integrity=poor choices=consuming misery for all, especially the viewer. when i watched the DVD extras the actors were talking about how the storyline's dishonesty/sins were so minor that its easier for the audience to buy it, get behind it & root for the villans! UGH!!! yep, going there not only in a handbag but with a hot little turbo-charged 1st class ticket!!!! again, disappointed. kept thinking "in the world, not of it," needless to say i wasn't buying any of it. FAIL!..."the ramen girl"-dumb. the japanese-only speaking ramen chef was my fave character, but it was a dark story...especially when one watches the deleted scenes. brittany murphy was a cute little gal, but this movie was not. corny to say the least..."tyler perry's: i can do bad all by myself"-breath of fresh air! soooo good. do watch it (without your girls at first so you can decide how you want to approach the storyline with them). it's about being a strong woman. plus, madea telling bible stories & pretending to pray was hysterical. gladys knight was fantastic! mary j. blige was a delight as well. great cast. a story most of us can see happening, if we haven't known people in similar places of our lives already. great flick. felt like being a better person after watching it. good. pick it up!
k, so that's my movie schpiel. enjoy your weekend! love ya oodles.

Isn't it great to have a special day to look forward to- not a birthday, anniversary or holiday, but just a day that seems slightly better than all the other days? I have one too, but it's changed since my I Heart Tuesdays post a while back. Now, I heart Saturday. :)

Welcome back!

I'm glad your blog-break wasn't terribly long. I hope you feel rested. I'm very much looking forward to this coming Thursday, so yes, I'll bid you a premature happy one! =)
