I am all for individualism... What I am not for is the rampant self absorption that I see more and more of these days. There are other people living, breathing, and trying to survive in this world. Take care that you don't step all over them.

I rented Penelope, which was a very lovely movie, gorgeous colors, sets, costumes. The movie was sweet, but seemed a bit short to me; I would have liked more character development. More of her friendship with Annie and the bartender, etc. Picky picky, right?
Saw Mamma Mia. Mamma Mia is set in Greece so there's gorgeous scenery mixed with fun Abba songs, terrible singing by Pierce Brosnan and cheesy acting by all in the cast. Cute fluffy movie. :)

Someone bought 3 onesies from my Etsy store yesterday. They wanted it shipped direct to a friend so I included this card (i've censored for privacy). I hope they like it! So exciting to have an order!!
Speaking of gardening, I've been having some iffy hair days lately and I have finally figured out how to make my hair look better. After a long bad hair day, I go hoe like a crazy woman in the garden for 1/2 hr to an hour and VOILA my hair is full and nicely curly. Just wish I could get the look without ending up stinking.
CB2- Crate and Barrel 2. Super cute stuff, like this green desk. You have to add the file cabinet to get the full effect, which puts it way out of my spending limit, but it's super cute nonetheless. :D

C and I saw Wanted this weekend. It was quite gory, but action packed. Angeline Jolie is such a bad mambajamba in it! The one really disconcerting thing about the movie is that two guys brought a little kid to it, about 4 years old. And there were some racy scenes and a lot of bad language. They didn't even flinch and the kid just sat and watched it. That is messed up.

On the way UP the hill, usually they don't run out across the street, but last night they did. Both of them and then from nowhere a 3rd dog I'd never seen there before. The other two dogs headed at C behind me and the third dog ran after me. I cranked up that hill faster than I ever have.

She found the boyfriend in San Miguel, Mexico after being there for a few weeks. She kept going to stay with him in Mexico City, where she would complain about hating it in his apartment. After traveling around Central America and nearly going to Panama with a man she meets, she goes back to her boyfriend's place in Mexico City and once again is a miserable P.I.T.A. They part on less than stellar terms and she goes back to San Miguel. Then when he doesn't show up for a planned visit she goes into paroxysms of woe. She keeps asking her neighbor Lupe (who is struggling to feed her children) if he has left her. GOOD GRIEF.
I suppose I finished the book because I thought perhaps her journey of self discovery would make her a better person. Instead it just ended with her coming back to the US.
SKIP THIS BOOK and read Eat Pray Love instead!

I'm loving this top from Chopstix Waits.
I hope all of you have tomorrow off like I do. I'm really looking forward to more chill time!
More silliness from the home of Magpieskinnies. I told C that I was nervous/upset about a work dealy and here's how it went down after that:
C: Don't worry, you'll be fine and you'll be bouncin' around like a rubber chicken.
Me (laughing): What? That's weird. I'm going to say that to you the next time you're stressed.
C: You can't say that! That one's mine.
Me: Okay then I'll say, Don't worry C, it'll be fine and you'll be eating leaves off the top of a tree like a giraffe. You'll be swimmin' like a plastic wind up frog.
Okay, so we're weird. Sue me.
