Some me time...

Micah's gone for the night, and I decided to have some quality "me" time. So I went and bought the "Sex and the City" movie, bought some popcorn and Twizzlers, and cuddled up on the couch. (Without Fluffy, Micah. Don't freak out. I didn't let her on the furniture). I love that movie. It makes you appreciate your girlfriends and what they give you that your guy is just incapable of providing.

I mean... don't get me wrong. Micah's amazing. Fantastic listener, funny, sweet, all that good stuff. But when I need to whine about my hair, or I need to shop... he just doesn't cut it. :) My friends and I decided that we're each a Sex and the City character. I'm Charlotte... but not. I'm all idealistic, and happy, and optimistic, and in love with love like she is. But I'm not QUITE as easily offended as her, and I certainly don't have her perfect Audrey Hepburn class. I wish. I also wish I were more demure. But I'm not. I'm silly and goofy and awkward at times, and I somehow convinced the best guy in the world to marry me. Lucky me!! :)

I was about to write how behind I am in school, but it's Friday night, and I REFUSE to think about school right now. It's off limits.

Instead, I'll just say how freaking EXCITED I am that "Twilight" is coming out next weekend!!!!! You know how I love Harry Potter (and have read each Harry Potter book AT LEAST three times), but Harry Potter is missing the epic love story that Twilight has. And I am just so ready to see them in the movie. YAY!

Alright... time for bed. :)

It's Saturday night...

...And I'm blogging/writing 10 pages of my soon-to-be 60-page paper. It's due on Monday, and I've REALLY got to get going on it. It's so funny, but I really do love to write. I just forget. It's like working out. I absolutely HATE getting my running shoes out and putting them on, but the minute I do I feel so great and enjoy working out. It's getting over that initial, "but I don't WANT to get off my lazy butt and do anything productive" feeling that's the toughest. Hence my procrastination on this paper. So I've had my butt glued to this couch all day today, researching and writing, and tomorrow and Monday will just be a repeat. My own fault, completely.

I got all my bridal portraits back. YAY! I really love them, and it's KILLING me because I want to show everyone! I'm trying to resist the urge, though. So don't ask me, or I'll lose my cool and let you see them, and then the whole dramatic moment of walking down the aisle will be ruined. :) P.S. My photographer is really amazing and artistic, and I would seriously recommend him to anyone. Plus he's the nicest guy ever and very easygoing. I like that. I'm a low-key bride to the max (definitely to a fault because I'm not concerned with ANY of the details, and someone needs to be). But I hate that all I can talk about lately is the wedding. It's silly.

I think my cat has found a new "person." She follows Micah around all the time. When we sit on the couch to watch t.v. together, she always runs to HIS feet so HE can pet her. I try not to be bitter about it. But he doesn't even LIKE her!! Everyone loves Micah best... I get it. How can you not? He's perfect and wonderful. But I've taken care of that cat since I was FIVE and I'll be danged if she's going to abandon me now! :) I'm on a mission to steal back her love. I'll let you know how it goes.

Alright... it's quitting time for tonight. I'm an old lady and my brain doesn't work past 9:00. Sleep tight.

So I certainly did NOT vote for Obama. I voted for McCain in some person's garage yesterday morning. Literally. The listing online said "residence garage," and I assumed it was a parking garage or something (which still would have been weird). But I drove up and there were definitely electronic polling booths set up in this guy's garage in this shady-McShaderson neighborhood. Anyway... I digress.

So I was certainly disappointed last night when Fox called the election for Obama. But it's not like I didn't know it was coming. I had been bracing myself for the moment. But I have to be completely honest. Listening to his speech actually brought tears to my eyes. I don't know why, but I was just completely moved by the fact that our country could rise above over two centuries of racism and elect a black President. I need to reiterate... I do NOT do NOT do NOT support Obama's policies or politics ONE iota. I find the idea of partial-birth abortion disgusting, I do NOT support his idea of over-taxing people who go to school, work hard and make lots of money, and I am fearful other countries will see his lack of emphasis on the military as an opportunity to strike.

BUT, having said all of that. Everyone who knows me knows that I am one hundred percent against racism of any kind. It's the most ignorant thing I can think of, and I just cannot and will not tolerate it. And to see our country embrace a black man... a smart, charismatic, patriotic black man who loves his wife and children... I cannot help but be thankful for that.

I suppose another distinctive feature of my personality is that I'm ALL about the silver lining and finding some way to be positive... especially when it comes to things I cannot change. And I'm sure this is me trying to find a way to be happy about the outcome of the election. But for anyone who's really struggling with the outcome of the election, this is just something to think about. This and the fact that he has already been elected. Nothing productive can come from sitting and whining about it. :)
