weekend highlights

Had an incredibly tiring weekend… we drove down to LA Friday night to attend Rob’s nephew’s baptism and then turned right back around and drove back home on Saturday night — phew! I was *so* not ready to go back to work today.

Yesterday was my rubber stamping class at Paper Source. It was so much fun! I learned about the variety of ink available, what works best on different types of paper, embossing, masking, etc. I think I’m going to attempt to make all my holiday cards this year. YAY! Let’s hope I don’t look back at this and curse myself, hehe. If you want a holiday card from me, leave me a comment and I’ll email you for your info. 🙂

I also watched the Emmy’s last night. I thought it was a disaster. (Not the winners or anything — I’m pretty indifferent to the actual awards). I hated the round stage, didn’t care for Ryan Seacrest, and the whole production just seemed so… amateur-ish. I DID enjoy the Family Guy intro (Stewie’s awesome) as well as the moment when Steve Carell went up to the stage to claim the Lead Actor in a Comedy series award (BWAH! Hilarious). Otherwise, it was pretty awful.

In other TV-related news, the Television Without Pity redesign is weirding me out.
Hmm… I thought I had more to blog about. I guess not. :/ I’ll be back once I’ve watched the Prison Break premiere!

An entry in list form because I’m feeling random…

1. I’ve been thinking about getting a new laptop. And because Apple’s advertising is so damn effective and their products are aesthetically pleasing, I want to try the MacBook. But I’m a little worried about the transition from a PC to a Mac. Anyone have any tips? I probably won’t even be able to take the plunge until after the wedding (when I’ll have money) but hey, it doesn’t hurt to do some wishful thinking. 😛

2. I recently found the Candy Blog. BEST. BLOG. EVER. Right now I’m actually going through the archives and *drooling* over all the yummy candy.

3. I’ve become addicted to paper crafts and rubber stamping. I have no clue how this came about. All I know is that I’m at Paper Source or Michaels about once a week to feed my obsession. I’m even taking a rubber stamping class next Sunday. I guess it’s about time I took up a hobby other than watching TV all the time. Heh. 😀

4. Now I’m watching the MTV Video Music Awards…

5. Just finished Britney’s performance. Hmm. She seemed incredibly nervous and uncomfortable. 🙁 Which makes me sad cause I’m really rooting for her. (What can I say — I’m a huge fan and apologist). She looked great, though. I think I’m neutral on the song… didn’t love it but didn’t hate it, either.

6. I hate the style of this year’s VMAs. What’s with all the different “suites/parties?” They made the whole show so disjointed. Plus, I watch the VMAs for all the performances and I hated how they only showed pieces of them. Blah.

7. Sarah Silverman was awful. And I hated her jokes about Britney’s kids. 🙁

8. Performances I enjoyed… Linkin Park, Alicia Keys, Timbaland/Justin/Nelly Furtado. But my favorite was Chris Brown! I know. He can’t act (see: The OC) but he sure can dance.

9. Poor Vanessa Hudgens (of High School Musical fame) is having a horrible, horrible week. 🙁 Her nude photos get leaked on the internet and now there’s talk of her being replaced in the next HSM movie. I hope not — I love her! I know Disney is known for their knee-jerk reactions but I hope they just chalk this up to her being young and stupid.

Hope everyone has a good week ahead!
