Hyphenocity!

First, the sad news- My mother mutilated half of my forever-old Garfield bedsheet set to use in rag-rolling the paint onto the walls of our living room.

However, I do still have some of the sheet, and am going to use it to make a soft and rememberance-of-childhood-y pillow, so I suppose it's all right.

Now, the good news (of which, luckily, there is more)- There is going to be a new trailer for The Two Towers up at lordoftherings.net starting Tuesday!

And, speaking of trailers, I saw the preview for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on the big screen this weekend! We (my mother, my sister, and I) finally went to see My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which, by the way, was great. Very funny and very sweet and very Chris Stevens . . . I mean John Corbett. Yes.

I did not go to Dave and Phil's party for Abe on Friday. I should have, but was feeling very anti-large-group-of-people-I-don't-know, so I figured that a party was not the place to be. Instead I went to hang out with Erica, which was fun and included Ben & Jerry's.

I did not buy the second volume of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman (because no store I visited had it) and I did not buy the new The Sims expansion pack (because I was demonstrating super-human self control. We'll see how long that lasts.)

Today I helped my mother rag-roll the living room (with my beloved sheet), and it turned out rather well, if I do say so myself. Once the new carpet is installed (White, for Pete's sake! What are they thinking?) it is going to be a very nice room. Of course, I will be scared to go in there when carrying . . . well, anything, but it will be a nice room nonetheless. As a reward for doing such good work in such good time, Mom and I got Subway sandwiches. I still have 6 inches of a Southwestern Turkey and Bacon sub to take to work tomorrow. Yummo.

And finally, when I went to the mall on Friday (and failed to convince myself that I wanted to try on shoes), I ran into Jessica and met Nam. I'm always surprised when I run into people I know at the mall, even though lots of people that I know shop there and some even work/ed there. I guess I'm just easily surprised. Good thing I'm not one of those people who hates surprises. Because then my life would be one of misery.

Well, maybe not misery. But it would be less pleasant, anyway.

Oh yeah, and tonight I watched an episode of Iron Chef about corn. And even though three quarters of the ingredients they used were things that appeal to me not in the least, it made me hungry. Specifically for those little cheesy corn muffins that my mom used to make and for which she has lost the recipe. Sigh.
