Big Day

Well hello, hello friends! So much has been happening in the past few days that it's been hard to keep up! 

As I mentioned before, Aaron and I went to see Pride and Glory on Sunday and it was an alright film. Edward Norton was fantastic, as usual, but the rest of the movie was just alright. It was pretty violent and a bit far-fetched. Basically, an NYPD has police officers who are making outside deals with druggies for some extra bling on the side. I know its happened before in rela life and unfortunately, it may still be going on in some places, but the most appalling and far-fetched part of the movie was Colin Farrell threatening to take a hot iron to a baby's face if the child's father didn't comply with Farrell's demands. This was immediately after Farrell punched the dude's wife in the face and grabbed the baby out of her arms. I'm still appalled thinking about. I like babies and I've been around quite a few in the past few years and to even think of this happening just makes sick. Ugh. That is all I have to say about that movie.

On some lighter notes:

As we all should know by now, our new president-elect is Barack Obama. I'm very happy to see a huge turnout from the eligible citizens exercising their right to vote! What a wonderful time to be an American. Hopefully, Obama will live up to what he promised. Congrats to Obama and Biden!

In other news, Halloween has now passed and so almost every store is bringing out their Christmas merchandise and the television is starting to show more and more commercials about Christmas. Typically this also appalls me beyond belief, but for some reason, it hasn't bothered me too much...yet. I was driving to work last week listening to my Ipod on shuffle when Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas is You" came up. My first instinct was to reach over and change the song, but I decided to listen to it anyway. No biggie. Then later that day Aaron and I went to Wal-Mart to get some puppy supplies and were meandering around the store when we stumbled upon a ton of artificial Christmas trees in the home and garden section. This got me in a bit of the Christmas mood which I've somehow maintained since then. This could all change once Old Navy has Christmas music on all the time when I'm working or when customers are too busy with the holiday stuff to be polite...but for now, I'm looking forward to the holidays. Once I get closer to the holidays and I get a few paychecks in the bank, I really want to get a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree!

Good old Charlie Brown. They're sold at Urban Outfitters and I can't wait to get one! Hooray :)

To add to my current holiday spirit, I was bored and searched YouTube for "Christmas Corgi" (I blame this on Aaron because started searching for videos of Corgis on YouTube a few days back and I've been checking nearly every day since for new videos because Corgis are the funniest dogs ever!) Looking through the search results, I came upon this video from 2007 of a dude's Christmas Corgi and I think its hilarious. 

My last and final note for today, is that Elphie has finally learned to consistently speak on command! I'm so proud of my pup and once I get some video of her speaking, I'll post it!

Happy Wednesday! 
Until next time friends...
