It's only 5 blocks!

I'm still working on putting together my new apartment, but I think I'm almost done. Yay! :) I just had to tell you this, though. I took the day off yesterday, for various reasons, and in order to do that I had to call my bosses daughter to fill in for me. She was very nice to come at a moments notice and I really appreciate her helping me out. However (You know this post isn't about thanking her for helping, don't you?) when I came into work this morning I found that she had rearranged my entire desk, including adding and DELETING programs on my computer and and AND she adjusted my already perfectly adjusted chair. What the Hell Man! She was only here for one day.

This reminds me of when your brother needs to borrow your car to drive 5 blocks to the store and of course you let him. But when you get back in your car, the seat is in the wrong spot, he's moved your mirrors and he's changed the presets on your radio. What the hell man! It's only 5 blocks.

Wonderfully Sucky!

You know the saying "Bitter Sweet". Well, I came up with a new one - Wonderfully Sucky.
Would you like to know what is wonderfully sucky?
That's what I did over the weekend.
Mary and I moved into our new apartment.
It's wonderful because we've been wanting to do this for so long
and it feels so nice to finally have a place of our own, even if it's temporary.
But it's sucky because . . . well, moving SUCKS!
I'm pretty sure it's the suckiest thing in the world.
. . . but it's also wonderful so I shouldn't complain so much.
Pictures to come . . .

Photo Tag

I can't believe how perfect this turned out . . . get this:

My friend Brittney just tagged me, here are the rules:
1) Go to your picture folder, or wherever you store your photos on your computer
2) Go to the sixth folder and pick the sixth picture
3) Post it on your blog and tell the story that goes along with the picture
4) Tag four friends to do the same

This is the 6th picture in the 6th folder on my computer

which couldn't be more perfect considering it's Staci's birthday today!

Crazy huh!

Not crazy that it's her birthday . . . just that . . . oh well.

Anyway - I just love Staci! She's my favorite Sister-In-Law of all time. Since Staci lives so far away right now and we just found out that she and my brother, Josh, will be moving back for the summer, I'm hoping that she won't mind waiting until then to get her gift. (Staci, if this is problem let me know, but I'm guessing it won't be a problem - cause you're cool like that.)

For your birthday, Staci, I would like to take you to a

we can sit here

and I'd also like to buy you a

and possibly some

and of course we gotta get

and wouldn't this be fun

Okay, so what do ya say? Is it a deal? :)

Top Hat Video

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I love movies. I watch a lot of them. When it's cold outside and I find myself in hibernation mode, I will usually watch a movie before I go to sleep every night. There are some nights when I can only watch half of a movie and other nights when I don't watch anything at all. But most nights around 10:30, you can find me in my room, picking out a movie to watch.

In order to support this movie watching habit, you've either got to buy a ton of movies, or rent a ton of movies. I do both. You might ask: How can I afford to rent so many movies?

Top Hat Video

The Top Hat Video in Bountiful, Utah, is my all-time favorite movie store for the following reasons:

1 Day Rentals - At the Top Hat Video store in Bountiful, Utah, they have 3 rental periods for their movies. Brand spankin New Releases are 1 day rentals, the older but still new New Releases are 5 day rentals, and everything else is a 7 day rental. Most people don't like having 1 day rentals - but I do! Not only does it help me make up my mind on which movie to watch first, but it also makes the brand new movies more available since most people will only keep them for one day.

60 Cent Movies - Every night, one hour before the Top Hat Video in Bountiful, Utah closes it's doors they rent out every movie in the store for 60 cents. Whether its a 1-day new release, or a 7-day oldie, it's 60 cents after 9:00 Monday-Thursday and 10:00 Friday-Saturday. This makes it extremely affordable to rent an exorbitant amount of movies. Freaking awesome - is what it is!

$5 Previously Viewed DVD's - All previously viewed dvd's at the Top Hat Video in Bountiful, Utah, are $4.99. Unless you decide to buy 5 of them, in that case they're only $4.00. They don't start out at $14.99 or $9.99 and slowly come down to $4.99 like how other stores do it, they're just $4.99 all the time. It's true that they don't have a huge selection of previously viewed dvd's but that's only because they sell them so fast. But don't worry - if there is a movie you would like to buy at the previously viewed price, the kind folks at the Top Hat Video in Bountiful, Utah will put your name on a list, reserving a copy of that movie for that price as soon as they decide to sell it as previously viewed.

and finally . . .

The Nice People - I've already mentioned how kind the folks are at the Top Hat Video in Bountiful, Utah, but I just wanted to say it again. They really go above and beyond for their customers. I know they're not saving lives here, but it's still greatly appreciated.

So go check them out - okay.
