Things I should get paid for telling people about PART 1

I have a Kindle
I have had one for over a year now, and love love love love love love it.  Also, I love it.  I can have my pick of books any time I choose, all with the click of a button.  All I have to do is remember to charge it. 
Did I mention I love it?
I have something like 140 or so books on it... Mind you I haven't read them all... But I love knowing that I have those choices. 
I almost always have it with me... because it is super flat and has a spiffy pink leather case that keeps it pretty.  I also splurged and got a light thingy with it... which was totally worth it, btw.
I have had it numerous places and people are like "oh I have heard about those, what do you think of them?"  So I tell them that I do love having it.
They are always like "I would miss having a book in my hand."  I always agree with them because I am a die hard reader and love having a book.  But this makes having any book I want so conveinient that I don't even care.
Places for sure I have done my best to sell people on a Kindle:
-Work... when you work nights, you gotta have something to read.
-Work... this was a completely other type of work... just sitting outside a pt room that was sleeping, so visitors walked by me
-Planes... lots and lots of plane rides have I told people the wonders of the Kindle.
-My moms graduation from nursing school... I was super bored during the ceremony and my mom wasn't up there so I was reading... my grandma leaned over and wanted to know all about it.
-A winery... On sunday nights in the summer the local winery has music on the lawn and you go and take a picnic and buy wine and have a great time... On this occasion my same grandma asked the same questions and I told her the same answers, and how amazon has like every book, this lady came over and said she just got the Kobo from Borders and it had more books.  I just smiled at her and said that was good to know all the while thinking, "uh I think I know what I am talking about."
There have been other times... I just don't remember them right now. 
I have read many many reveiws about e-readers and Kindle is always in the top 3. 
I love my Kindle.

So that was the first time I have ever used the camera on my computer to take a picture for the 'ole blog... Kinda fun I have to say... and super conveinient.  Just like my Kindle!

I was not in any way endorsed for this post... but I really should be for all the promoting that I have done for amazon.  Did you hear that amazon?

I forgot about this game... apparently I need to grow plants that can fight off the zombies too... wonder how thats gonna work...

I have to admit.
Of all the end of the world problems and monsters that are out there...
Zombies scare the pants off me.
I think its because, in my mind, there is the possibility that it could happen.
I am Legend.  Did you watch that?  It has a virus that turns people into a zombie/vampire thing.  Vampires don't scare me.  Its the zombie part that has no rational thought other than to eat your brain.
My brother and I went to see I am Legend late one night... I made him sleep over because I was freaked out about the creatures... I just wanted him to sleep on the couch... He ended up sleeping on the floor in my room... I think he was a bit freaked too.
Zombieland.  Hilarious movie... but still freaked me out.
Carriers.  Hard to watch...  A virus killing off everyone.  Granted I don't remember if the infected were killing people... but it had a zombie-esqe feel to it.
The Crazies.  Pretty good... Set in the "marshes" of Ogden, Iowa... If you've ever been to ogden you know there aren't any marshes... Other than that little tidbit there is a virus leaked (by the government)  into the water supply and it makes people kill each other. 
28 Days Later.  A research facility lets loose a virus.  Couldn't finish this movie... although I really want to, I will just have to watch it with someone who won't try to scare me halfway through.
There are also the fantasy/mythical creatures genre of books these days too.
Don't get me wrong... I love the books about vampires... I read super fast so you could say I "eat them up."
I like the kind of books that put a myth into real life and make it seem like it has been there all along.
Case in point: Amanda Hocking.  She wrote a fun trilogy about how trolls are actually real and and very magical and not creepy like the Billy Goats Gruff.  The species is called Trylle and are in every was superiour to humans. 
So I saw on Amazon that she had a new book out.  I downloaded it to my Kindle not really paying attention to what it was about. 
You guessed it.
I haven't gotten past the 2nd chapter because it was stressing me out.
Aliens don't pose a problem.  While some alien movies do freak me out, I'm not worried about them taking over the world. (Although now that I think about it they are more likely than zombies.)  But, I highlky doubt that aliens would want anything to do with me... Zombies want to eat my brain for goodness sake!
My whole point of this post was to post just one picture... but the more I thought about it the more I thought I should explain the reasoning behind my fear.
That being said... I want this house.
epic win photos - Zombie Fortress WIN

It will keep me safe from the zombie apocalypse that I am convinced is coming.  Plus it looks like it is pretty cute on the inside.

So my dad has been making wine lately.  At first I didn't like it.  But the longer it sits, the better it tastes. (thats what she said) Also the stronger it gets.  (Also what she said.)  (Can you tell that I have been marathon watching The Office?) 
Did I mention that I have only have 2 glasses of apple wine? 

four twenty - an education

Yeeaahh... so I thought everyone knew what 420 implied.  If you don't... look it up
Anyway.  I was snickering about it whilst signing and dating stuff at work today. 
The nurse I was talking to didn't have any idea what I was talking about. 
I mean we work on a behavioral health unit... we see drug everything... so you can see how I was suprised that she didn't know anything about it.
Keep in mind I am not saying that drugs are good in anyway.  Or that I have EVER done drugs, simply because I fear getting caught.  Also I have seen firsthand what drugs can do to people... and that freaks me out.
But I do find drugs hilarious.  As well as Family Guy.  Hence the above picture.
For the record it is 4:49 in the ayem and my brain *may* not be working correctly.
So like the title of my post "four twenty - an education" this is what I think about in the middle of the night while trying to stay awake.  I might have to watch Family Guy now.

I have this weird thing about being even on both sides of my body.
I have three peircings and a tattoo on my left side... and only two peircings and no tattoos on my right.  Until recently, I suppose... I got my nose peirced about 4 weeks ago.
So that leads me to the tattoo... I have been ITCHING to get another tattoo for about 6 months now.  But I am afraid to get something that I will regret.  I have a design in mind... and a place to put it... now I just need the guts... no not guts... something to get it.  Does that make sense?
That is the balance I need... because I am unable to find balance anywhere else in my life right now.
Lovely, isn't it?

Bradley Cooper... I tell ya...

I went and saw this with my friend last night.  We also went to Panchero's beforehand for supper.  It was delish.  I haven't gone there in forever... simply because I had a bout of food poisoning from a mexican restaurant and a burrito place... two separate occasions.  Anywho.  Considering that Panchero's had both of those you can see how I was, ah, tenative, about going to such an eating establishment.
My worries were all for naught.  I had  a burrito bowl... It was super good.  It had all of my faves that are in a burrito, but it was like eating a salad.  Yummo.

Back to Limitless.  I. Loved. It.  Ok. I must admit I have had a not so secret crush on Bradley Cooper for a while.  But I was fully prepared to put that aside and focus on  the movie as a whole and ignore whatever preconceived notions I may have had... Like how much I loved him in every other movie I have seen him in... even  Wedding Crashers. 

I rate movies on whether or not I would be able to watch it again.. because if I feel as though I would watch it again, I usually buy it... does that make sense?  If it is good enough to watch again than it is worth my time. 

I should mention that I have been drinking some Chardonnay since about, oh, 7 pm tonight.  It is now 947.  My thoughts might not be fully making it out onto the computer. 

That being said I think I should finish up pretty quickly...

I loved limitless.  We also went to a bar on mainstreet that I think I will be visiting again sometime soon.

Until next time.

Currently listening to...

The Band Perry.  Download their album right now.  Seriously.
I would put of a pic of it but I was having some trouble with finding one...
So how about a music video of my favorite song?

So yes.
That is the music I am currently obsessed with.
I have been craving a gin and tonic for like a week now.  I have no idea why.  Nevermind... I do know... I was reading a book series, and the heroine liked them... and I haven't had one for a long time... there you go.
My friend and I are going out tonight.  So excited!
A movie and drinks afterwards.  You can be assured that gin will be involved.
Maybe dinner before.  She has little kiddos so it depends on when she can get away.

I have a bunch of ideas floating in my head in regards to blog subjects.  They are just waiting to get out... maybe next week... maybe tomorrow.
Who knows.

I am considering filling up a water bottle with chardonnay to take to the movie. 
Is that weird?
My friend will drink it to.

I am feeling a tad snarky right now.

Is it translating into what I am writing?


Till next time.
