a smorgasbord of stuff

Guys. I am so bored right now. I have done nothing today, NOTHING! There's no work. Enjoy it while it lasts, right?

So, what have I been doing?

1. Trip planning. Trip #1: Canada Day week, my parents & I will be driving to Memphis (hi Jersey!) Originally, I thought of going to Memphis on my own to visit Jersey and attend a NKOTB concert but then I realized that Graceland is there. Now, my dad is a BIG Elvis fan, has never been to Graceland and I would've actually felt guilty if I went before my dad did.

Trip 2: September, the UK. 3 weeks. There are TOO MANY places I want to visit. Here's the plan so far but will probably change many times:

London - Oxford - Stratford - Cambridge - Canterbury - Dover - Brighton - Winchester - Salisbury/Stonehenge - Bath - Bristol - Cardiff - Swansea - ferry to Ireland - Cork(?) - Dublin - ferry back to Wales - Chester - Derbyshire - Leeds - York - the Lakes District(?) - Edinburgh or Glasgow - Inverness/Loch Ness - Glasgow or Edinburgh

And dear heavens, typing all that out, I just realized that if I spend just 1 day in each city, that's more than 3 weeks! And that's not even including travel time! I'm going to have to cut stuff =( Nix Ireland? Forego northern England and take the highspeed train straight to Scotland? No Highlands? F-list, I need your help!

2. Watching a very cute video of Thomas Dekker thanking the fans for fighting to save T:SCC.



I love that he left a voicemail for Fox! And he's too adorable for having just woken up.

3. This weekend, the lottery is at $40m and everyone chipped in at the office for tickets. So of course, this meant perusing the real estate sites and looking at multi-million dollar homes that are currently on sale in the area. We sure can dream, can't we? If we do win, it'll come to $1.4m per person. Not too shabby *crosses fingers*

4. Matt Smith in Cannes for a film of which I don't even remember the name of. He looks really relaxed. Enjoy it while you can, Matty, cause it's going to be chaos.



5. It's the long weeknd for us. I'll be spending it doing much needed spring cleaning and maybe catching a movie. 1.5 hours to go...

Ok, Thomas Dekker had enough time to have his phone ready to call the Fox viewer line, but he couldn't put on a shirt or put down the cigarette? It was a sweet message and all, and I love T:SCC, but he just looked skeevy in this.

LOL If Thomas wants to walk around shirtless, that's fine by me :) The cigarette was annoying but unfortch, tis the way of most Hollywood it looks like. I just try to ignore it.

The plan right now is that we'll be travelling June 27 - July 4. We'll probably hit Memphis June 30/July 1. I'll definitely let you know once our plans become more definite!

Yay for long weekends!! What are your plans?

Charlea, there's too many places! As I was whining about this to my co-workers, one of them made a brilliant suggestion -- take another week off! LOL I WISH. Now, if we could just win the lottery tomorrow, this problem will become moot.

DUDE. THOMAS. Now I feel bad for not having followed the show this season...

It's OK, I didn't follow it either this season. 1) too many shows on Monday and 2) I lost interest a few episodes in. But I do have all the eps downloaded and I hear it got better so will probably watch them this summer.
