Neurosis #4

Our apartment is in a state of chaos right now. Nothing really wrong with it but we just 2 large folding tables out in our dining/living room area. 1 for Price’s models and 1 for my scrapbooking. Sure I have space in the office to scrapbook but it would mean I’m alone in that room for hours on end. So when you walk in your are greeted with tables of paper based stuff. Oh yeah, I can’t forget that our dining room table has my final model on there. Can’t wait until I have officially graduated so I can toss that sucker out.

 

So since I can’t really change the overall shiz going I decided to fix a small problem that has been bothering me for a while. My shoes have always ended up in a heap in a basket I bought a few years back. This often resulted in an overflowing basket or the “rediscovery” of shoes have they have been sifted to the bottom of the basket. So I decided to take some action and get some containers (big surprise there!) to organize my shoes.

  

So I put my in season shoes in containers under the telephone table and my out of season shoes in my closet. I think I need a few more shoes, but more importantly some help…..

Muffin Fail

So my little idea about transforming a muffin recipe failed miserably this morning. Miserably.

 

I’m too frustrated to really explain what happened but a combination of the vague instructions which lead to a mistake in addition to my idea about adding jam into the muffin. Stupid jam sunk to the bottom of the muffin during baking so I ended up with burned jam muffins that broke apart easily.  Let’s just say I am never promising baked goods to someone before I have made it.

I went off to the House Rabbit Network’s annual volunteer’s meeting with no muffins in hand, luckily there was DD on the way so I could get some munchkins. I told Price to throw out all the “muffins” while I was gone since I was so pissed at looking at them.

Date night

Dear James Cameron-

Congrats on creating the highest grossing piece of crap. Price and I went to see your movie last night. We both knew nothing about your movie- no joke. Neither of us looked into what it was about at all prior to going. So we happily forked over the $25.00 (plus service fee) to see your movie in 3D at an IMAX theater.

I guess you should be glad that we knew nothing about the movie because if we had we would have saved our money and stayed in and played some wii. About 15 minutes into the movie I realize that it really is going to be SOOOOOOO predictable. Good guy, bad guy, save the earth message. We care about the earth- we recycle, use reusable bags, compost, etc- I get it. It’s an important thing that everyone can relate to. Anyway, my problem was the predictability plus I kept thinking that I had seen the movie before, just with a few changes.

This nagging feeling continued on until I remembered FERNGULLY: THE LAST RAINFOREST. That cartoon that came out in 1992 with tone loc and tim curry- as the creepy sexy slim thing. You have kids- granted they were born after this movie came out but you are in the MOVIE BUSINESS. I would think you see a few of them for work related research. And If not, why did no one have the balls to tell you that Avatar is a future version of Ferngully?? Also, both movies were released by 20th Century Fox, did no one there consider the similarities???

Hoping that you are satisfied with having the top 2 grossing movies of all time and you retire now. With your new found free time you should sit down and google “Avatar Ferngully” or ” James Cameron Ferngully” and you can find things to the liking of this.

Signed-

Nicole and Price

Most exciting part of the night was getting jellybeans (juicy pear is my all time favorite) and then going home to write this. Oh yeah and watching a clip of Tone Loc rapping in Ferngully.
