Happy Friday the 13th

Another WordPress update? Really? I mean, updates are good and all, so is a secure script, but sometimes it feels like overkill. It’s the same thing with Filezilla. Every time I open it, it needs to update. Can’t they just give me a bigger update every other time I open it?

Anyway, I’ve never seen the movie but have always felt sympathy for Jason.

Like the movies

Sometimes I wish my life were like the movies. Sometimes I wish things were perfectly beautiful or eve perfectly tragic. I script things out in my head but, of course, real life is never like that. Occasionally I hear songs that have a nostalgic feel, that talk of the good ol’ days and I wish they applied to me. I wish I could look bad and replay my memories to music. I wish I felt as though my life were worthy enough for a soundtrack. But it’s not, or maybe I just don’t view it that way.

No news is good news..

Sometimes and sometimes not. Sometimes it means Cole just isn’t blogging because she doesn’t want to say “I was in a car accident with Wendy and while everyone is okay and it wasn’t my fault, the car isn’t doing so well and it should have been so much worse.”

Sometimes it also means that Cole and Wendy went to see movies like Coraline and Watchmen which were both good or that they spent hours wandering around downtown, 2 minutes visiting the Alamo (which is all you really need) and dined at a “British” style pub where their server was a friendly lad in a kilt who Wendy loved.

Sometimes it’s both.

At the Cinema

Last night we stopped off to see Valkyrie finally. Ryan had wanted to see it much more than I did and I was happy that we managed to see it at last. It was a pretty good movie and Tom Cruise was surprisingly good in his role as a German officer in Hitler’s army. But since I plan to review that soon, I will not mention anything more except to urge you to see it as well.

Kitty cats and Backed up Sinks

So, I fished washing the dishes yesterday and noticed the sink seemed a bit clogged and tried to run the garbage disposal but nothing happened. I then noticed that when running down one side of the sink, the other backed up and vice versa. I called the office who sent a request into maintenance and we left to see The Day the Earth Stood Still and take Phantom to PetSmart.

Upon returning, we saw that the maintenance guy left a note on the counter which said not to use the garbage disposal because it was rusted and corroded and he needed to order a new one. Unfortunately, this apartment was the model and while it looked good, it hadn’t been used on a daily basis for an unknown amount of time. This is also why I reluctant to use the dishwasher (which had a loose piece) and the filter had not been changed in the air conditioner forever.

The movie was okay. It was a nice change of pace to not have the entire Earth be destroyed by aliens (is that a plot spoiler? oops!) but they obviously only picked Keanu Reeves to play an alien because he talks in that strange, halting manner.

At PetSmart, we got Phantom a new toy so he hopefully redirects his aggression away from him. We also spent some time looking at the adoptions centers for possibly a new friend. We saw some adorable little kittens who were barely 2 weeks old. We decided to stop at the other PetSmart and saw a nice female cat about one year old but we have not made the final decision yet. We let Phantom and the kitty get to know eachother and while they didn’t love eachother, I think they could be good friends in time.

Phantom was really nice in the car. He eventually calmed down and curled up in my arms. He was also surprisingly mild when he was meeting the other cat; almost scared. This was the most mellow we’ve ever seen him! It was almost as though he was a different cat!

Today was spent looking for a Christmas tree (which we didn’t find) and a little Christmas shopping for Samantha (she’s getting PixOs).

This last week has really flown by.
