haves and have-nots

* Have not finished un-packing.  I am so unmotivated right now.  

* Have booked my tickets to Orlando for EyeCon!!  Flying in Saturday afternoon and leaving Monday afternoon.  Wanted to come in Friday night but WestJet only offers afternoon flights and it had an awesome seat sale so compromises had to be made.  Bummed that I'll be missing Jim Beaver and Chad Lindberg but Jared is scheduled for Sunday and that's all that really counts.  =)

* Have watched the first half of Veronica Mars S1 and I'm enjoying it.  Not at the point of OMG BEST SHOW EVAH but liking it.  I thought Kristen Bell sucked on Heroes but she is really good as Veronica.  Still think she's overhyped though.  Love Wallace and Papa Mars.  Paris Hilton in the second episode made me gag.  Hey, it's Mac from General Hospital!  Sorry, but I can't see Veronica and Lilly being BFFs.  Lilly is annoying.  And Logan.  Poor misunderstood, bad boy Logan who gets beaten by his movie star daddy.  He gets the best lines and his "bonding" with Weevil was amusing.

* Have not been really watching the Olympics.  Every time I flip over to NBC/CBC, it's on a sport I'm not really interested in.  I seem to be missing all the good stuff  =(  Unpopular Olympics Opinion #1:  While I'm all on-board with Phelps winning the 8 gold, it makes the whole thing boring.  Oh look, Phelps is swimming, he's gonna win, what else is on tv?  UOO #2: Pro athletes shouldn't be part of the Olympics.  Whether it's basketball, hockey or tennis.  As for our poor Canadian athletes -- if there were medals for 4th & 5th place or my personal favourite -- personal bests & breaking the Canadian record -- we'll be rockin'!   Even the Olympic tv ads we get seem to focus more on Vancouver 2010 then Beijing.  Whoever wins the first medal is gonna be a freakin' national hero  LOL

* Have not seen The Dark Knight.  Shameful, I know.  Hopefully, this weekend.

There's a rule about that? A time table? Pffht! Might as well just leave the suitcase out cause you're going to need it in about 6 weeks!!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! Yay!! Sunday is wide open on the schedule, maybe they'll switch Jim to Sunday and put the Ghostfacer boys on Saturday or something. It's going to be so fun!!!!!!!

I've really been into the Olympics this year. I love the water sports, especially diving (my Greg Louganis loving heart loved watching his pretty ass dive!). I do like watching Phelps and hope he wins, but I get what you mean. There should have been a HUGE deal out of Lochte winning gold too. I am really sick of the sand volleyball girls though. Enough already.

Me either, don't plan to though. I AM going to see Kiefer tomorrow though!!!!!!!!!

ETA: How could I forget to mention Logan!!! God, I love him. And Weevil...two of the best characters on there. I miss Weevil too. S1 was really good and if you're like me I was DYING to get my hands on S2 to see how the cliffhanger resolved itself.

I seem to have the very bad luck of always catching women's swimming, diving and gymnastics. I WANT TO SEE THE BOYS!!! Has the men's springboard started yet? I can't miss that!

VM. I'm surprised the show didn't do more with Duncan's character since he's Lilly's brother/Veronica's ex all-around good-looking kid.

R asked me if I wanted to see "Mirrors" but I can't do horror movies. Now, if Kiefer was buttnaked for at least half of the movie...

EyeCon will be awesome!

Don't even get me started on Duncan. HATE with a passion. I feel the same way about Lilly.

And exactly what are you going to do about Friday the 13th????

Duncan hate? Really? For me, right now, he's just... there.

Awwwww, I just watched the ep where Logan breaks down. :( First Harry Hamlin & Lisa Rinna are his parents and now Alyson Hannigan is his sister? Awesome.

I actually had to think what did Friday the 13th have to do with anything. Then I remembered and no, won't be watching. Again, if Jared was buttnaked for at least half the movie... different story.

"Pro athletes shouldn't be part of the Olympics."

THANK YOU!!!!!!! I could not agree more. It actually makes me really angry.

I can see what you mean about Phelps. But they all just look soooooo pretty in their tight pants, all dripping wet, I just can't keep from watching.

*is trying not to be jealous about EyeCon*

Hmmmm, so very pretty. My co-workers and I greatly enjoyed the picture you posted a few days back :) I do have the worst luck though as when I did manage to catch swimming, which was rare, it was either women's or the race already ended or something. Grrrrr.

My luggage is sitting right in the middle of my living room and I step over it all the time. Then I think, perhaps I should actually put everything away and clear the space. And then I don't. I'm so lazy.

I've only seen a little bit of "Moonlight" and Josef wasn't in it. Did you like the show? Maybe I'll download the eps one day cause I do like Jason Dohring.

Butting in here- can't remember if it's part of the shirtless or not, but Alex O'Loughlin and Jason Dohring had a really hot scene together towards the end of the season. (I'll admit it, I mocked the first episode but ended up really liking Moonlight)

1. That's a pretty awesome feat. Between Canadian & American tv & media, we can't get away from it!

2. I'm thisclose to just downloading it but I do want to see this on the big screen.

Oooh oooh, thank you for the origami paper! Isn't Ito-Ya awesome? *loves*

(Also, I have been enjoying the gymnastics, I must say. And I did completely fluke into seeing our first gold medal live this morning at an ungodly hour. \o/)

I'm leaving for Las Vegas in like 2 weeks, why bother unpacking, right? Unpacking sucks.

You're very welcome! I just happen to walk by Ito-Ya and went in looking for some pretty paper for a couple of friends of mine. Saw the origami paper and thought of you! :) That store is very awesome and it would be very easy to drop a lot of money there.

Woke up to the wonderful news that we went from 0 to 3 medals!
