Mashed Potato of Thoughts

Finding time to blog regularly is difficult when you have real life stuff going on. I had Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday off from work but I spent most of it doing homework and studying for a midterm. I did go see Paranormal Activity 2 on Friday with Nicole. It was better than I expected. It wasn't a cheesy sequel just to make a sequel. It actually tied into the first one. I didn't find it as scary as the first one but Nicole was latched onto my arm and leg the whole time so you can guess what she thought.

If any of you care I am doing well in school. I have only received A's so far with what I have done. I recently just got a 97 on my Computer Information Systems test, which was the highest grade in the class. I also got an A+ on my Speech Communications midterm. Writing bullshit always gets me a good grade. Imagine if I actually put in some effort. I am not writing all this to gloat. I am just updating you on my life..... okay maybe I am gloating a little. I am also acing my Health and Conditioning class which basically consists of exercising and working out for an hour. I don't see how anyone could fail that, it's so frickin' easy.

Nicole and I recently went to check out the new gardens that they put in at Anthony's Pier Nine (the venue for our wedding). It was beautiful. Stone walls with different levels and a waterfall that has lights with different colors. We looked at some pictures of a recent wedding. The waterfall/fountain looks awesome with the different color lights. There is a big staircase that the bride walks down before she gets to the aisle. I wish I had pictures but Nicole is in charge of taking pictures and she didn't have her camera. If the inside renovation turn out anything like the new garden then we are in for a kick-ass wedding.

We have also been meeting with dj's, photographers and videographers. We found this awesome company called JimmyDee music and they also do photography and videography. They gave us a great price for all three packages. I don't think we are going to find a better deal then what they gave us. The guy we spoke to seemed like a cool dude and they come highly recommended by other people. Things are slowly coming together. Little by little we are accomplishing things. It's now less than 2 years til the big day.

I am very behind on things that I want to write about. Finding the time is difficult with working overnight, school and sleeping odd hours. Blogging isn't at the forefront of my brain because it really isn't that important. I still need to write the post about Pat Tillett and his blog. This was his prize for winning the last trivia contest. I still haven't gotten around to writing anything. Don't worry Pat, I will get to it eventually. Baygirl will be guest posting sometime in the near future. That is her prize for also winning the trivia contest. I don't know how mommy bloggers get around to blogging all the time unless they are stay-at-home moms. I will find a way to schedule some much needed blog posting and reading. Until then don't forget about me. If I haven't been commenting on your blog then you are in the same boat as everyone else. I know I am probably missing a lot of good stuff. As a random last side note, I did a speech on giraffes yesterday in class. I am not kidding.

As blog behind as you are it sounds like life is an A maybe even an A+.

Tricia said...

Holy baby Jebus! You're doing that much planning and it's still two years out?

That?? Is why I'll be single forever. I'm definitely missing the 'I love weddings' gene that women are supposed to be born with.

But congratulations!! I'm curious to see what two years of planning will culminate in.

Marlene said...

Life happens! Congrats on doing so well in school. I'd be gloating, too!

Oilfield Trash said...

Congrats on the very good grades.

Baby Sister said...

Congrats on the grades. :) At least you're focused on the more important things.

Bossy Betty said...

I'm giving you an A for this post. Now you can brag to your school friends how well you are doing in blogging!

Congrats!

Pat Tillett said...

Congrats on the grades! It's good that you are taking it seriously. Blogging is fun and interesting, but real life comes first! I'm glad that you know that...Keep up the good work!

I'm not worried about my prize. Don't even worry about it. Besides, it's probably going to take months of research to find out exactly what the heck I'm doing over there...

Did you ace the giraffe speech, too?

That's awesome, man!

And if I didn't blog from work, I wouldn't have as much time, either.

Kal said...

Did you mention in your speech how giraffe will often travel through time with lonely intelligent children and how these trips often lead to disruption in the time stream that often need to be corrected by other time travellers?

It's true ya know.

Kal said...

Come to think of it, maybe it was best you didn't say anything about the time travelling giraffes. The world is not ready for such a revelation.

Chuck said...

Sounds like you have a ton of shit going on, who can blame you for sporadic blogging. I have been just as bad the last few months.

Kudos on your school stuff!

Geof said...

Blogging does interfere with real life unfortunately so I hear you on that. I am glad to hear that you have your wedding plans going in the right direction...and I know firsthand that stuff take A LOT of free time off one's plate. It'll be worth it in the end.

I was slated to see PA2 this past weekend but got sidetracked. Now I have to make it up to the wife by seeing PA2 and SAW 6 and possibly My Soul to Take to make up for it.

And also glad to hear school's going perfect. Of course it helps to have people like me send you sports updates that you already knew. Haha

Congrats on doing so well with school! and I don't think I knew you were engaged--that was a fun time--I loved being engaged. Married is a mixed bag, but I suppose so is life and Mr. Crabbypants has been making me cranky of late. The venue though, for your wedding sounds amazing! Good luck with planning! And thanks for letting us know what's up!

The Invisible Seductress said...

Awesome stuff ahead for you!!!!!

Swift Love said...

I knew you were a smart cookie (with chocolate morsels), but - holy cow - I didn't know you're a genius.

What's with real life getting in the way of our blogging life?! I've felt the same way recently and it has been tough.

Your wedding sounds like it is going to be off the hook. You should invite your blog friends. Sure, I'd fly across country to attend.

RaShelle said...

Gloat away on your grades, dude!!! A's are awesome!!!

And, I can't believe you're so involved in your wedding and it's still so far away. Wow. Impressive. Sounds like it'll be beautiful.

Chary Johnson said...

Wow! You are one busy individual. Congrats on the wedding plans. I'm sure it will all work out and be worth it.
Working nights is hard but I'm sure you'll find a balance somewhere in there.

I have yet to see the first Paranormal Activity. Will put it on my cue.

*scared of scary movies*

Take care,
Chary
