okay i try and refrain from starting each post with “wow it’s been so busy lately” but it’s been true. sigh. i’m getting completely out of the practice of posting. but regardless.

what’s been up lately, here’s a random, brief review:
- i was in phoenix twice in 2 weeks, the 2nd time less than 24 hrs
- we’ve been catching up on our movie watching. no country for old men was amazing, so was juno, and persepolis
- i got all wrapped up in the australian open even though i could barely watch it, with matches starting at 3:30 am! i guess i’m an “actual” tennis fan now, not just a US open fan.
- i’m becoming even more obsessed with snowboarding. now that i can turn, all i want to do is head for the hills. alas, there has been a decided lack of snow on the east coast. like at all.
- we’re currently watching the royal rumble. (note: josh has PAID for a pay-per-view wrestling show), thus me taking the time to write something.
- we just booked a trip to hawaii for a friend’s wedding. this is KINDA a crazy idea and will be more expensive than i want it to be, but we already have one of our tickets paid for (thank you AA miles!) and we will NOT be staying at overpriced resorts. this will be an adventure vaca. i’m not flying 11 hours, and practically to japan, to sit on a beach.

and thanks to tony’s masterful photographing, here’s a recap from the first annual teamforce winter getaway!! this was VERY needed for me, and such an awesome time. i even played the rockband drums. once.

juno.

i’m kinda completely in love with these lyrics:

You’re a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on you’re back is the latest trend
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body’s swinging from side to side
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Here is the church and here is the steeple
We sure are cute for two ugly people
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
So why can’t, you forgive me?
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I will find my nitch in your car
With my mp3 DVD rumple-packed guitar
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu du

Up up down down left right left right B A start
Just because we use cheats doesn’t mean we’re not smart
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

You are always trying to keep it real
I’m in love with how you feel
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

We both have shiny happy fits of rage
You want more fans, I want more stage
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Don Quixote was a steel driving man
My name is Adam I’m your biggest fan
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

(michael cera and ellen page version of the moldy peaches anyone else but you from juno)
