This n That plus Georgie porn

So Serge got a new camera. It was supposed to be our camera since I had a gift certificate to be applied, but he messed that up somehow (Did you push "apply gift certificate"? Apparently not.) and ended up paying it all himself. It takes really good pics though. The impetus for this was the upcoming TV show. None of our cameras do video well at the moment AND I discovered that if you're in the USA, you will not be able to watch the tv station's episodes on line. So we will take a video of the show so we can keep it.

One more week and it starts airing. I've noticed that often times some of the contestants end up on other shows to talk about the experience or the food. Ugh. I don't want to again, too dang stressful. Also, there is a public choice where people vote for contestants to come back. Please please please let it not be me.

Can you believe it, two blogs in the same month. Remember when it used to be everyday? I don't know how I did that. I have had a lot of time off though. I saw three movies this week. Argo, which I highly recommend, is a great true story and even though you know how it's going to end, it still keeps you on the edge of your seat. Kind of like in Titanic when you knew they were going to hit the iceberg. Really well done.

Then I went to see the Perks of being a Wallflower. Meh. I saw so many raves about it. It wasn't very funny or dramatic. Maybe a super light version of Ordinary People. Then today, Serge and I went to see Paranormal Activity 4. If you like the series style, you'll like this one too. So many chills and jumps and the last ten minutes was awesome. Serge still thinks the first one was the best. (When we both jumped off the couch and shrieked at the end.)

We had dinner last night at mother in law's house. Here is Georgie again, thinking he's a lapdog. I've told you about the yawning right? He must yawn hundreds of times per day. It's a really bizarre habit. Even when he's all excited about getting a coookie or going for a walk, a yawn will suddenly possess him. Strange 37 pound dog.

Let's see, what else? Gotta big week starting, another English immersion with my fourth group of nurses AND I start my next class for my Master's program. So, lots of homework coming up. The class is called, The Psychology of learning - how students learn. Should be at least interesting since it is related to my work.

Not sure when I'm going to do Thanksgiving. We missed the Canadian version and I have the turkey in the freezer so I guess I can do it anytime between now and the American version. Can't think of anything else except that I HATE that you closed your blog Rox. I already miss it and keep checking if you came back. Poo on you, at least send me a chatty email. Finally, here's a last shot of Georgie at MIL's house. He sat there looking at something for the longest time. Wonder what it was....

* Been a while since I did one of these. Feels all retro and stuff.

* I have a lot of free time this session. The contracts didn't line up like they normally do. I've got 2-3 days of work per week. I'm not gonna stress about it, just enjoy it.

* Seeing movies is one way to enjoy it. Yesterday, Serge and I took in Looper, an interesting tale involving time travel and telekenesis. We are still confused about one scene, but it kept us blabbing about it well after it was finished.

* Today I took myself to see Step Up Revolution. I was the only person in the theater. Weird. I have a major new crush though now. OMG every time he was on the screen, I melted.

* Not going to post his name since I'm probably not allowed to post the pic. Even though it's already on the internet. He is the male lead in the movie. It was really difficult to focus on the plot when he was on screen. Woof.

* Got the holiday weekend off too (Canadian Thanksgiving). We are going on a little road trip off the grid. Should be some really nice fall foliage scenes. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. We are taking Georgie with us. Speaking of the little monster, here's a little Georgie porn.

* He's been especially needy this weekend. I worked three intense English immersion weeks back to back so he must have been missing me.

* I have been smoke free for 51 months today. According to my stats, I have NOT smoked 46599 cigarettes since I quit.

* Serge on the other hand, has picked the habit back up. He decided to smoke while we were in Cape Cod since there were other smokers among us. Then when we got back he requit. But that only lasted a week. Now he's back to a pack a day, sigh.

* The diet is going awesome. I look good naked again. Yay! Still two pounds to reach my goal though. Should be done with that this week or next.

*  Oh yeah, and on Saturday we went to POUTINEVILLE, a fancy poutine restaurant and yours truly ordered a salad! Admire, wont you, my phenomenal restraint. Meanwhile my dining partners ordered poutines with chopped up corn dogs in them! Okay, I got a bite, but that was it.

* My current English shows are Glee, Parenthood, 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, Amazing Race and waiting for Smash to come back. Are there any I need to be watching that I'm not?

* This was fun. Maybe I'll write more with my light schedule. In the meantime Mwah, and thanks for stopping by.
