In Which I Use a Glue Gun and Only Burn Myself Four Times

  It's been quiet at Singing Princess Astronaut. This SPA has been busy moving. The husband got a new job, moving us about 15ish minutes away. The new place is pretty effing awesome. 450 square feet bigger, recently beautifully remodeled. I'm quite excited and am loving it. The packing and unpacking was a PITA, but oh well.

  Anyhoo. Glue gun. Fuck you, glue gun. I finally did the Valentine's Day project I've said I was going to do for the last 4 years.  With much adult supervision, Peanut made Valentine's Day picture frames. With exception the 3 very minor burns and one slightly more painful burn (conveniently located on the tip of my index finger, making typing so much fun!)  it was an easy project.

  All we did was hot glue some conversation hearts (you know, the awesome heart shaped candies that taste just like heart burn medicine?) to a picture frame, coat with a bit of Modge Podge, add some glitter and Ta Da! Pretty Valentine's gifts for the family!
Not pictured, my burnt finger
Ta Da! 
Glitter makes it awesomer!

Another Proud Geek Parent Moment.

Today while out and about with The Peanut, she yelled out, "Momma! Look the TARDIS!"
I asked, "Really? Where?"
"Over there! OK, it's not really the TARDIS. It's one of those moving bathroom things. I'm going to pretend it's the TARDIS."
My Christmas present finally arrived.

Queue Nerd Rage NOW!

  I don't get all the nerd rage about the Star Wars prequels. At all. Seriously. The movies aren't great, but are they really  THAT bad? What, exactly makes them so horrible? I would love to find some one that has never seen any Star Wars movie and has no preconceived ideas of the Star Wars world. Then I want them to watch them all and give an actual objective review.

  Oh, just so you know,  I think JarJar Binks is awful. I thought the Ewoks were stupid when I was a kid.

"I'm doing all this to save your ass..."

 Movies that if they come on, I have to watch to the end:

Dirty Dancing
Steel Magnolias
Thelma and Louise
Finding Nemo

My husband came home for lunch and I was watching Dirty Dancing. He tried to give me a hard time. I said, "I'm a girl. I'm allowed to love Dirty Dancing."

So there's that.

*EDIT I should also add
Shawshank Redemption (Because Fowl Sorcerous is right)
Forest Gump
Brave Heart

Those Silly Resolutions.

  I am not much of a New Years Resolution girl. I never think of any thing good and have a serious problem with following through.  I decided I would post the things that I will do in 2012.  I do not resolve to do the following things. These are the new plan.
  1. DO something with The Peanut for at least one hour every day.  Watching a show will not count. I mean quality, one-on-one time.

  2. Do some kind of physical activity every day. This can be going for a walk, sex, playing at the park with Peanut or some other form of physical play. (I can play with The Peanut for an hour and number 1 is taken care of, as well!)

  3. Do Zumba for the Wii no less than 3 times a week.

  4. Use less salt. This really isn't a problem, I just thought it was a good idea.

  5. Drink at least one glass of water every day. By one glass, I mean one of our 32 ounce glasses.

  6. Go to at least one gaming type meet up once a month and interact with real, live human beings.

  7. Not get discourage if I get off track from my plan. I will get back on the horse the next day. No excuses.

So, there it is. All typed in black and white for the peering eyes of you, interwebs.
