Might I suggest...

There is this guy on the radio this morning, talking about men. He wrote this book called voicemale. I think this book is a must have if you ask me. I'm adding it to my wish list! What men want in their marriages, their wives, what they think about sex, housework, and commitment.

Here are some points in the book: (I do this for all my girls!)

*Men propose marriage primarily because they want the physical, emotional, and intellectual companionship of a woman. Men like company.

*Beauty attracts. But what works to keep men interested in a woman as a potential life-mate are two personality traits: a positive outlook and self-confidence.

*You can change a man. Most husbands are open to changing in healthy, positive ways. And some actually look to their wives as agents of change.

*The more satisfied a wife is with the division of household chores, the more satisfied a husband is with his sex life at home.

*Forget the old wife’s tale about heeding how a man treats his mother. More often, a man’s relationship with his father shapes him into the husband he will become.

Sounds like an insightful book to me!!

Speaking of marriage. There was a huge bridal show this wknd. The girls at job 2 asked if I was going, they were all going....the engaged ones. This poor girl has to come up with some dough before she can think of that stuff. sniff sniff. I was left out!

We watched and burned a bagillion movies this wknd! Cursed, about the werewolves w/Christina Ricci. It was actually a decent movie as far as horror goes, and its my favorite genre so I am a little open to all types of horror. The Machinist was a freaky movie. Batman (Christian Bale) is in it. He really looks disgustingly sick and thin. But kept our interest. A p sychological type movie. Must Love Dogs was a really cute story about dating these days, the online personals, w/Diane Lane (who is super hot!) and John Cusack. Fever Pitch with Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. The guy is super obsessed with his sports team, and they hook up. It was really good!! Hitch, which made me laugh hysterically at points. I havn't laughed at a movie like that since the 40 yr old Virgin. Also a good one!

I'm compiling our new movie list. Our merged, moved in together, we're engaged movie list. I can't wait to see the new number! Adding someone to my movie database is a big step. It's not so easy to just delete all their movies when they leave, so, its big, just trust me! We got those cases like the DVD's you buy come in, and the labels so they fit right in with the general population of the rest of our DVD's and you'd never know we copied them for our own personal home use. We have like 4 more to watch still. This week Red Eye comes out. I can't wait to see it! I also can't wait to go see Hostile!

It's Monday. It's a full week, no more time off til May. I woke up this morning thinking of an excuse to work 1/2 a day today but I need to save my vacation, and besides, I FUCKING LOVE WORK!!!!! yea, okkkk! That is why I havn't stopped sneezing since I got here and blowing my nose. I say it all the time, but it's true, I'm allergic to work!

It is in the 40's again today. WTF is this shit? Um, winter? Can we get it over with already? Is this global warming or what? Is the planet going to explode?

Today's Question:

Seen any good movies lately?

It's going to be in the 60's today in Virginia Beach. I like Spring time, but if it's winter I wish it would stay cold!!!
The last good movie I saw was on DVD a couple weeks ago. ' The Exorcism of Emily Rose'. I know there are others that have come out since that one I'd like to see, but I haven't made it to the video store. Not all of us are priviliged enough to be able to download movies for our own personal use. :-)

I really liked Crash. It was very thought-provoking. I also just saw a documentary called "Rabbit-Proof Fence" about these Australian aboriginee children who are taken from their mother by the government and forced to be educated in an institution. The children run away and make it back home over an 800 mile or some crazy journey (maybe more) on foot. It was so emotionally-stirring.
