On My Weekend and Christmas...

Ok, this is the last time that you will hear about the bloody contest which even I'm sick of. It's over on Sunday. I will announce a winner Sunday eve or something.

Now that I have that out of the way - I'm totally going to tell you about my plans for the weekend. Cause you guys care and stuff.

Tonight: I think I'm going to end up picking up advance tickets to "Twilight" (too lazy to link, but if you don't know what this is, seriously you must be living under a rock). I am going to see it tomorrow with K and her hubby. I think while I'm at the theatre, I may even catch "Australia." (I'll forgive you if you haven't heard of this one- I love love love Baz Luhrmann and see everything he does. Moulin Rouge? Totally my favourite movie ever.)

Tomorrow: picking up bro from the airport. I feel compelled to do some re-bonding with him. He said some stuff to me that upset me and I talked to my Dad about it. My Dad talked to him and he got mad at me. Blah Blah sibling crap. Anyhow, I would like to just move past it, so I think a couple of hours of quality bonding time is all we'll need to move past it. Then, as mentioned, seeing Twilight then dinner at K's mother in law's.

Sunday: I hope to see my person. Will have to check on her schedule. I also want to do my Christmas cards.

An interesting topic came up on Miss Britt's blog today - she said that she hates it when bloggers ask in a blog if their readers want a card. She said that if the writer wants to send a card, then to email and as for an address.
Question: I very specifically haven't done this beccause I was concerned that it was potentially creepy/stalkerish/alarming. How would you feel if I sent you an email saying: "Hi, it's PotU, I heart you. Can I get your address to send you a Christmas card?"
Cause whomever tells me they're cool with it, you'd better believe you're getting an email from me right away. I don't know why I'm so bloody Martha about this, but I love sending out Christmas cards.
Oh, and those of you whose addresses I've already managed to get? yeah, you're totally on my list already.

Ok, back to the topic at hand. There's a Christmas Craft Show going on this weekend too. I think I should try to fit that in somewhere. Along with cards, and gift wrap and baking, I also love love love buying stocking stuffers. It's in my top 3 parts of Christmas- stockings! I keep getting in trouble from my steps because I talk about stocking stuffers around the kids all the time. I'm good about remembering that Santa is supposed to be real and all that, but I can never quite remember that he's the one who's on stocking duty. (Have I mentioned that even as a child, I never really bought the idea of Santa? I can never remember a time when I actually believed in him, I always felt like I was humouring my parents with this myth)

OK, back to work. Have a super fab weekend my darlings.

You are going to love, love, love "Twilight"! I saw the first showing this morning & was in awe of the movie, the actors, the love story. . . . It's definitely not the book, but pretty good as book-to-movie goes.

I've got my Christmas letter written, but I have to find card stock - figure something out to put it on. As mentioned, you'll get yours soon!

Enjoy your weekend!

OMG the Twilight hype is unbearable.

Myself, I'm ITCHING to see Star Trek and with Zachary Quinto (the psychotic killer who's turning out to be a nice guy after all on "Heroes") playing the part of Spock (w00t!) it's going to be spectacular!

It never was really clear to me what happened to Captain Christopher Pike when he was in the big chair on the Enterprise before Kirk, but apparently Spock was a damn fine Vulcan First Officer.

How does Zachary Quinto fall into a role that big? Simple, he works/worked with other Trek ORIGINAL Crew Members Nichelle Nichols and George Takei(sp?) on Heroes. Rubbing shoulders usually ends well in that business.

er...who moved my rock? (what is Twilight?)

Glad you are feeling much better these days Princess. I have only been reading you a few months do forgive me not knowing the full extent of whatever made you need therapy. You always seemed normal enough to me.

Maybe it was a lot to do with the jobs you were doing? Sometimes people get forced down a road that is not right for them and that makes them feel bad.

I would have entered your competition if I was eligible...thanks for entering mine.

Oh I will send you my address by email when I get home. I would love a Christmas card.

You are forgiven for talking about Christmas ONLY because you are Canadian and already had your Thanksgiving. I am a total Scrooge until Black Friday--mostly because I love love LOVE Thanksgiving and hate that it gets overlooked in favour of all things red and green...

That being said, I totally want a card! I will gladly reply to Stalker/Martha-Stewart email :)
