Okay, life in a nutshell:

1) We've been short two nurses this month, and work has been steady.

2) Sith rules! Great movie, definately makes up for the other two.

3) Wedding stuff is coming along. Now that my sis is back living in town (at my old apartment to be exact) and she's my maid of honor, it's a bit easier.

4) Still loving the whole Edge/Lita thing that the WWE is doing on Monday Night Raw. I'd like to think that they're still together, but there are conflicting reports on some of the wrestling news websites. Renee, who does the ultimately gorgeous website AdamOnTheEdge.Net, says she has an inside source, a reliable one at that, who can vouch that Adam Copeland and Amy Dumas are still together. Keen.

5) Fee is doing great.

6) We're getting an exercise bike.

7) If you read John's post recently, you've heard about our trek to the Metro Richmond Zoo, which reaked of awesomeness. Very fun.

Otherwise, not much else going on.

Life Sucks for Younglings

This article appeared on MSNBC entertainment. Warning: It contains spoilers.

While I admit Lucas is not without many, many mistakes when it comes to both churning out the new, as well as revamping the old movies, I can't say he's erred here. What bugs me is that the same parents who wigged when Janet Jackson's boobie popped out at the Super Bowl are pissed because their kids can't go see Episode III because it's PG-13(mostly for violence and scary situations). Okay, let's recap: Boobie= Bad! Violence and scaryness= not bad. But that really doesn't matter, because, last time I checked, a child under the age of 13 could go to a PG-13 movie, so long as said child was accompanied by a parent or guardian. I have a feeling that most of the outcry is from those parents who treat movie theatres as babysitters and are miffed that they'd actually have to take time out of their shopping dates or drinking binges to actually accompany their child to a movie. I say to those dumbasses: shut your mouths and take your kids. And tell them that boobies are okay.
It's your duty!

Pomp And Circumstance

Up in Blacksburg this weekend, watching my baby sis graduate with a B.S. in Psychology from Tech. (Congrats Shannon!). We're staying at a Holiday Inn, which is the bomb because it has great cable, room service, an internet link-up (as you can see), and a nice bathroom with a coffee maker.

The house is coming along nicely...I've gotten actually to LIKE vacuuming. Especially since Fee barks and chases the vacuum around.

Wrestlemania 21 is a kick-ass DVD, with tons of special features. The Money In The Bank Ladder Match featuring Edge was one for the history books, with 2 standing ovations by the crowd for the 6 guys involved. Absolutely amazing.

John and I are now debating what to do for lunch with our friends, Susan and Chewie:
Lunch at Macadoos vs. staying in the room, watching Meet The Fockers on Pay TV and ordering room service. Decisions, decisions!

I'm Not Picky, But I Request Seats Close Enough So That I Can Hit Keith Richards With My Undapants!

Lurraine, my boss, and I were shooting the shit this afternoon, and the topic of concerts came up. She told me that The Rolling Stones were going back on tour, and it was possible for her and her husband to get tickets for John and I. I was flabbergasted, and although it's not a guarantee...it's THE FUCKING ROLLING STONES IN CHARLOTTESVILLE!!! How sweet is that???!!!

John and I have become rather big concert whores now, considering that within a six month time frame, we plan on taking in about 4-5 shows- first there was Sevendust when we went to Disney. We also plan to see Corrosion of Conformity/ATP in June. July 1 is the Revolver Underground Tour, featuring GWAR, Unearth, Lamb of God, Norma Jean, and about 10 others. It's a kick-ass fest for very little dough, and it will be coming to Norfolk. That's not counting the shows John's gone to on his own. Ahh, so cool to see good live music.

Did I Get Drunk And Order Stamps?!?

John and I settled down after a fun tete at the Winn Dixie to one of our favorite shows, The King Of Queens. It's a fun romp into the world of young marriage, but one of the highlights of the show is a supporting actor by the name of Patton Oswalt. Oswalt graduated from William And Mary and is a Virginia boy. He's into comics, Star Wars, D&D, and is funny as shite. He's got a CD out, Feelin' Kinda Patton, and if you ever want to pee yourself, check it out. I've updated the links to include his personal site, which is also very good.

John and I ran over to Barnes and Noble last night to pick up a copy of The Star Wars Cookbook, which has delectible gastronomical delights like Wookie Cookies, Ty Fighter Cocktail Weenies, and Boba Fettucine. I glanced at the intro and noticed such lines as "make sure your parental units use the Force and watch to make sure that you don't burn yourself, Young Jedi," so the book strikes me as being more for kids than anything else, but I must say that the recipes are quick and easy.

Black Label Beatch

Sigh. I'm in love.

With Zakk Wylde.

Oh, don't get your shorts in a bunch, people. I adore and am passionately in love with my fiancee, John, not only because he totally rocks my world and spent most of his Saturday helping me work on my mom's Mother's Day gift, and he's a candidate for sainthood because he has the cojones to put up with yours truly on a regular basis. In fact, it was John who turned me onto Zakk and his band, Black Label Society, ever since we started dating. Chances are, you've seen my man sportin some wicked lookin' tees featuring skulls and the letters SDMF on them. Chances are, if you are like moi, you're a bit perplexed and perhaps a bit ill at ease to see a large man with such allegedly threatening clothing. But once you've shaken the initial image, sat down with a copy of Black Label's DVD, cracked open a Pabst Blue Ribbon, and let yourself be taken, you can completely understand where I'm coming from.

First off, Zakk's a beautiful, talented, passionate man. Those eyes. That long blonde hair. The muscles. The man is friggin eye candy! Hate to sound crude here, ladies, but it's more dick than Sears on a Sunday. The WWE boys got nothin on The Legend (although Edge says that he and Zakk are good buds--bonus points!). My mom most likely would love him because he's a Yankees fan, so no worries there. He's honest and seriously lacking in pretention. His interviews are awesome to read, funny as hell.

Not to mention he plays guitar like no one else I've ever seen. The BLS DVD contains a concert from Detroit, and it's spellbinding. Besides needing a good hosedown at the end because of Zakk's masculine sex appeal, you are also satiated because the music is perfect. Zakk was hand-picked at age 19 to play with Ozzy Osbourne, and he's one of the most skilled guitarists in the world (and yet those fuckers at Rolling Stone kept him off the Best Guitarist list...blasphemy!). And yet, he's not a pompous ass like some would expect. Quite the contrary- there are many many fan accounts of encounters with Zakk, and the general consensus is that he's one of the nicest famous dudes ever. (just don't piss him off, as one radio DJ in St. Louis did, when he asked Zakk if he and pal Mike Piazza, who at the time was being falsely outed as gay by the mainstream media, had "ever hooked up." Zakk ended the interview and slammed his fist on the guy's recorder, threatening to do bodily harm to the guy. Although I don't condone violence, if you listen to the interview [John has it saved on his computer], you can easily hear that the doofus had it coming to him. You just don't go there with Zakk Wylde.)

Getting back to my fabulous fiancee, John, the man who started this little obsession for me. You may think that John's actions were about as wise as Matt Hardy introducing Lita to his good buddy Edge, but fret not, this bride will not bolt into Zakk's awaiting tattooed muscular arms. Zakk's been happily married to the very lucky Barbaranne for sometime now, and she's so awesomely bad-ass that Zakk lovingly refers to her as "The Warden." He also has three kids, two of which I've seen pictures of, and they share his tow-headed looks, as well as his musical prowess. A bonus feature on the DVD is "3 Minutes With Rae Rae," a home video of Zakk and his pre-school aged daughter singing his original song "Thank You Child." Folks, it's the most adorable thing I've ever seen, and I'm a full-time Disney bitch.

So, although you can't borrow my copy (actually it's John's, but I'm kidnapping it. Sorry, Hon.), get wise and grab a copy of the Black Label Society DVD for your next fiesta. Also, you can get your Zakk fix on by watching Rock Star (he has a bit part as a guitarist), VH1's "The Least Metal Moments of All Time" (here's where the honesty and fun interviews reign surpreme. His take on the whole Celine Dion cover of "You Shook Me All Night Long" is priceless.) and a Very Special Episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force where Shake and Zakk write an alternative to "Happy Birthday." Get to know Zakk and his work, and spread the love to your peers, and people will think you are smart, cool, and a bit of a bad-ass. Plus, anywhere Black Label's at, John and I will be there, and you'll be so lucky to have such cool friends.

Star Wars, Edge, Cracker Barrel, Life's Complete

Not much new, trying to prepare the house for our Star Wars Party, which is coming up soon.

Edge Update: WWE buzz is that there will be a storyline involving real-life couple Edge and Lita (Adam Copeland and Amy Dumas). It involves Lita becoming a heel (bad guy) and turning on her current wrestler, Kane, and joining Edge. It makes sense, because Edge and Kane are both in the running for a #1 contender spot at the WWE title, so creating a feud between them would be good.

Next up, breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Yummers!
