Khumbaya!

So I recently watched the movie "Osmosis Jones" on youtube. For those of you who don't know the plot, if follows the story of this really unhealthy guy (live action) and the inner workings of his body (cartoon style) as a white blood cell and a flu pill fight off a nasty infection thing. Despite being kinda nasty sometimes (it's about the inner workings of the body), it's quite clever and funny. Of course after I've watched it I can't help but picture what's going on in my brain as my white blood cells fight my allergies or my nerves try to get me back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night cause of itchy mosquito bites on my feet (yuck). Anywho, the point of this is, the movie is funny, but it just makes me think about anatomy far more than I actually want to.

Also, thanks to my brother-in-law, I've been watching old episodes of Eek the Cat on youtube. ah, I miss the old days where the cartoons were good :p

Oh, and I'm totally gonna be an aunt again soon. :D

That is all.

Well there must be another Arthur, cause this one's an idiot

So Half Blood Prince was pretty much amazing, not that anyone is surprised that I'm saying that, lol. Honestly, the only flaw I could really find in that movie was Bonnie Wright, the actress who plays Ginny. I thought her performance wasn't very good, which was disappointing to me cause I love Ginny in the books and I expected her to be played more dynamically in the movie. Bonnie seemed to play her very....flat. Does that make sense? No dimension to her at all and it very much looked like she needed acting classes. I'm not normally this critical, but it really bugged! Thankfully I enjoyed all of the other aspects of the movie and was practically bouncing up and down in my seat the whole time ;)

Life is still pretty slow, but of course that doesn't make me work on my Anatomy any more. I doubt I'll have it finished by the end of August, blah. I just hope I don't fail, whenever I finally finish the course.

So Mariah got engaged!!! I'm so excited for her! (she's my old mission comp, we were like twins on the mission) She's even asked me to be Maid of Honor, how exciting is that?? ::squee!!:: She seems so happy and that makes me so happy for her, cause she deserves it :D She'll be getting married in the Las Vegas temple around Thanksgiving time, so I guess it's good for me that Rachel had to push her wedding back (sorry Rachel!). But of course this means I really do have to lose weight by Thanksgiving...blast it! Oh well, whatdoyahdo?

In other news, I need to get more sleep. And stop making videos when I should be doing my Anatomy class. (which i kinda did with this one....I just stopped right in the middle of making it, haha)

Shipmates again, Jim!

So I did my first Anatomy lab today. They provided a cd with some short little lessons about basic anatomy from TA's who stood infront of a sheet hung on a wall and were dressed very eighties. It probably would have been captivating if they weren't talking about the vocabulary of cutting kadavers in half and studying them. I'm just not into that sort of thing. There's a reason I'm not going to be a doctor. I'm going to work with children, and none of them will bleed in front of me (ha, yeah right).

Of course, as much as I complain about anatomy, as always, it does make you believe in God, like whoa. I honestly don't know how people can study science like that and think all of this just happened by chance. It boggles the mind.

I did another Robin Hood video yesterday, for no other reason than the fact that my back was hurting and making videos doesn't require much movement. This one I made for my neice, Elizabeth, who turns 10 on Sunday. Does that make me feel old or what? lol. Well it makes me feel like a cheap aunt, but I know she'll like it anyway. Besides, she's nice to me when I give her things and I'm all about the bribing at this point. It seems to be the only thing that works.

Todd seems to be doing better than he was last week. We took away the extra meds that we had started to give him and he's reverted back to his old self. It's crazy how one little half of a pill can just make him practically dead to the world. It makes us wonder what he would be like if he didn't take any of that medication. Of course it would probably mean he would have a seizure every week, but if he could learn to talk and interact with people it's almost a tempting trade off.

The fabric I bought with Kirsti continues to lay on the extra bed in my room, waiting for me to decide to do something with it. Of course now I find out that mom doesn't actually have her sewing machine any more, and of course this means nothing to me because I don't know how to sew anyway, lol. But honestly, if I ever actually make that dress, it's pretty much going to be amazing.

(ps. This is a continuation of an online journal I used to keep. I think most people who read this will know me enough to understand the references I make to my life, so if you don't....well, sorry. Hopefully you can catch up through my innuendo, haha)

Piglet, why are you swimming in the popcorn?

Cause I'm actually supposed to be doing my online anatomy class right now...and yet I'm not.
