thanks for the comments, all bloggers know we love to get comments of course.
busy this weekend doing everything, packing up my large suitcase and duffle bag with clothes and stuff, packing three 20x20x20 boxes with blankets, school supplies and books, a lamp, 2 down coats, etc you get the picture. The good thing is I get reimbursed for all the stuff shipped over there ( I was tempted to just mail everything). but I'm playing it smart by taking half and shipping half, except for all the school stuff, Im not lugging that around during the trip.
saw a movie last night with my married couple buds from AR. "No Country for Old men" I think its called. Really Really great film! once was enough. I don't usually see creepy movies like that, I mean it is pretty graphic, but oh so well done, My heart was pounding inside like I was in danger during the first few parts of the movie. If anyone didn't get the ending, email me and I'll explain the line in the movie which explains point blank why it ends the way it does. See it!
there was a preview for a Daniel Day Lewis movie that was excellent, people were applauding the preview his acting was so damn good! ha , he's like the male Meryl Streep, you know the way he becomes the character and all. also the older brother from Little Miss Sunshine plays oppisite Lewis and I imagine also does some fine acting to have been chosen to play opposite Lewis.
I'm listening to OU/OSU game on the radio. still no cable here. ha. OU winning, I'm glad to hear Bradford was able to play. My roomie is asleep on the couch, he's all sick and taken all sorts of sudafed and medications. I don't get how he can have cold sores and dip at the same time.
He went out and bought a puzzle this morning, and I helped put the border together on the coffe table. now he's just sleeping though. I towed and pushed (myself, thankyou) my little 88 ranger into my backyard yesterday. I'm going to put a tarp over it while I'm gone. my dad will keep my newer truck that I drive. and this next week I plan to put the 88 truck up on blocks. man, how redneck is that?
Dan buys an IPOD. my first. I got the ipod Classic for $249 at circuit city ( although I should have waited, the apple store had them for $228 yesterday but I'll live) so I have uploaded all my cds and also download some podcasts of this american Life from NPR. I thought that'd be perfect to have while on the plane or waiting around for stuff during my trip. I also purchased a 250gb portable hard drive to sort of store everything on. I mainly got it so I can get into video editing once I'm overseas. btw, I WILL be blogging while there, we'll have internet and everything etc...
Anyone want to give financial ideas? I found out I have no PMI on my mortgage, it's an FHA loan so I'm paying insurance regardless until 2015. So I've decided it makes no difference how soon or late I pay off my mortgage, I guess I could just save everything I earn, and let the rent money go towards mortgage, or save half and pay half onto the mortgage, or just pay everything towards my house. I'm actually going to AR tomorrow and seeing my best bud up there and his wife and kid, so he'll prolly give me tons of ideas as well.
