Replacements

Many things have been changing lately. Some for the better, and others...not so much.




I have been spending quite a bit of time lately out of the house, and the undying love my Koa used to have for me has been replaced with love for Eric. As most of you know, we haven't been sleeping in the same bed for quite a while now b/c of his snoring, but Koa always slept with me. Eric would take him to bed, and as soon as the light went out he would jump down and come to sleep with me. Now, he comes to bed with me...and as soon as I stop petting him or change position he commits treason and chooses to sleep with the enemy. Whatever...it is only a matter of time before he comes crawling back. Maybe he forgot that I am the one that feeds him.


I normally have the hands of a construction worker...rough, cracked, with really short nails. These have now been replaced by girl hands, who wudda thunk it? I am done with my Med-Surg rotation (can you hear the Hallelujah chorus?), but I still wash my hands in fear of the germs that are everywhere. So, I went into my stock pile of bath & body works goodies, and put lotion next to all the hand soap on every sink in my house. And, I finally have smooth hands!!! Also, my nails are growing nicely...I can't even remember the last time they were all the same length!

I also sacrificed some much needed to sleep to go to the midnight premiere of "Twilight." I was super excited when I finished the books...but that was replaced by fear that the movie would suck...which was then replaced by complete satisfaction after seeing the movie. Some people were caught up on details, but I enjoyed the overall flow of the film and thought that it followed the plot quite well. Sure, certain events took place in different locations...but really, has any movie ever followed the booked exactly? Well, maybe Pride & Prejudice, but wasn't it like 5 hours long? Someone also pointed out that they had Oregon plates on some of the vehicles...but as someone who lived in that area...it is VERY common to see Oregon & Idaho plates in the Pacific NW! So, if you didn't like the movie you are entitled to your opinion, as am I.
Another replacement to my sleep schedule came Friday night. My friend Vanessa (she is a blogger newbie, so giver her some love...as soon as she posts something) & I planned a bachelorette party for our fellow Nursing Student, Kelsey. Since neither of us had ever been to one before, we were on uncharted waters...but I think it was a huge success. There aren't any pictures right now b/c 1) I couldn't find my camera 2) I will get copies on Monday, and 3) I probably couldn't post many of the pix w/o making most of you blush. We played some very silly games, and to quote one of the girls at the party, they drank "copious amounts of alcohol." We had a great time at Howl at the Moon, and Kelsey danced for the entire 5 hours we were there! I also received much love from the ladies that night...and was kissed on the cheek and hugged by all of them that night. One also made the comment that she was impressed that I could have such a good time without drinking (& my mad skilz on the dance floor)...which is something I am very used to hearing. I really did have a great time and no one was out of line, or out of control. I will give more details when I get the pictures...you'll just have to wait. Stay tuned!

Sounds like fun! I'm glad you liked the movie. My sister (who lives where they filmed Twilight- in Oregon) pronounced it to be a giant success. (I have yet to see it.)

I do agree however that P&P (1995) is probably a movie that is the most loyal to a book that I've ever seen. But like you said, that's what 5 hours will do for you. And I'm sure Colin Firth helps. :)

I'd have watched Twilight as a 5 hour movie, I was enthralled!! Koa is a traitor!! LOL!

I also ended up liking Edward more than I thought I would. I just personally don't find him attractive, at all...but I think he played the part very well. Did anyone else think that Jasper looked like a constipated fairy?

And, I have to clear Koa's traitorous name...he slept in bed with me last night, and only left when nature called ;o) I knew he would be back!!
