This is a unique glimpse into the heartbeat of RebuildingAmy... where the magic happens... and the clutter... my computer. (that was TURNED OFF today)
"I only check my email about once a week." When people say things like this to me, they might as well tell me that they are from another planet & eat hair for breakfast. I just can't get my head around it. I have a little bit of... an... Internet problem. Shocking, I know... Not only do I have the BIG!! HUGE!! Mac on my kitchen counter, I have a MacbookAir and an iPhone, which is permanently attached to my hand. I ADORE instant information and, as you know, I love to multitask by Facebooking or Tweeting while I am on the elliptical at the gym. Some call this "ADD"... I call it "diversifying my attention." So today, my outside-of-the-box experience was TURNING OFF THE COMPUTERS. And it's amazing what I was able to accomplish. Let's just say EVERY STITCH of laundry in the Hempel house has been cleaned and put away... which happens as often as a lunar eclipse.
Yes. I'm one of those women... the middle aged women who flock to see the abs of a 17 year old. I admit it. I've read all of the books and now, like it or not, I have to see all of the movies. You have to finish what you start, right?
My friend Andrea and I went to see Eclipse at the theater tonight. I fully expected to have the theater to ourselves but it was QUITE full. Have you seen the Twilight movies? Seriously... the first one was comical. The acting was HORRIBLE. But this one was actually pretty good! Except for all of the EXTREME CLOSE UP MAKING OUT SCENES. Really? Maybe I've been married too long.
I'm loving this pic of Pinky and I... Our eyes are red, like we're vampires who just "fed". Watch out.
After the movie was over, we stood outside of the theater and visited with another friend for a while. I was totally distracted (see the comments above about my ADD) by Angelina Jolie. She kept staring at me. She's pretty hot, except she has about 12-too-many tattoos, for my taste. But still, I thought I'd share a picture of her... staring...
Kids. (you know what I mean.)
I have music on my iPhone but haven't figured out how to add ALL of my iTunes music to my iPhone, yet.
I'll get Dr. Hempel on it.
And speaking of.....
I love this guy. This is Dr. Hempel sitting at HIS computer at 11:30 at night, working on charts. He does this a lot. (notice the Diet Pepsi can next to his arm? We live on this stuff.)
Just had to throw in a picture of my BFF.
That's about it for tonight. iPod, dead. Eclipse, good. Friend at Eclipse, fun. Today's challenge- computer off, I survived. AND... I got an hour of cardio in at the gym. I'm off to bed. Gonna dream about Edward Jacob Dr. Hempel.
