Time to move on..

Moving on from LiveJournal, finally. I will miss certain aspects of it, but I really just got to a point I needed more. It's not you LiveJournal, it's ME ::Sob.sniffle::. Actually it is you.. and this whacky crazy changing world.

Hope whoever reads this (and it's a total creepster) wants to follow over @ becky/thechroniclesofbeckia/ .

Peace.. I'm out.

My Trip to Dairy Queen...

... Why I will never get a dipped cone again.


Not my photo, but I think it gets my point across at what a mess it is

Mike and I took a quick romp to Dairy Queen tonight for some frozen treats. Mike got his normal blizzard with 'extra stuff'. I decided since I wasn't driving to be 'crazy' and get a chocolate dipped cone. BAD idea.

Well the second I got it, I could see at the bottom where the chocolate met the cone that the ice cream was melting and seeping through. As we drove away, it began melting at such a rapid pace, I couldn't keep up with eating the melted portion of it. The weight of the hardened chocolate was pushing down on the ice cream below and dripping all over the place. Mike told me (while laughing at me) that I had to hurry up and eat the chocolate part as quickly as possible. As I attempted, a piece broke off into my lap along with drips of ice cream.

It was a complete mess. It wasn't even that hot today.. overcast and maybe 80. So I can't imagine if I'd gotten it on one of those 100+ heat index days. I probably would have drown in ice cream.

So lesson learned.. and may you all be warned.

Got caught up in a documentary on Bio about Queen on Sunday and got reacquainted with this song. (Had been lost in the great laptop switch of 2009) This video is from 1984 and was banned in the US on MTV cuz we're a buncha prudes.

I have been using the 3G iPhone and it was starting to get slow and outdated. I was eligible for upgrade, so I got the phone at Best Buy today. The damned thing is, if you want to just up and buy an iPhone 4, it's SIX HUNDRED AND FOURTY-ONE DOLLARS. Since it was an upgrade, I only paid a third of that. Diz-am!!

... And looking at that photo reminds me I need a manicure...

2011 AJC Peachtree Road Race 10K

Got up nice and early this morning (5:50) to head to Buckhead and run this race with my sis-in-law. We ran the first 3 miles, walked for a mile and a half, then ran the remainder of the 6.2. It was a crazy fun atmosphere and I had a great time. Looking forward to next year, and it was a reminder that I should register for more races... preferably in the FALL in Atlanta. Yeah just a bit hot.

ATLANTA: Hot, Humid, and Hilly

My results:


I thought this was interesting..

What is seen is not the Truth
What *is* cannot be said
Trust comes not without seeing
Nor understanding without words
The wise comprehends with knowledge
To the ignorant it is but a wonder
Some worship the formless God
Some worship His various forms
In what way He is beyond these attributes
Only the Knower knows
That music cannot be written
How can then be the notes
Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion

Spoilers and melodrama await you!

I'll admit it, I have in the past been a Tyler Perry movie watching fool. Albeit, there are some mad corny moments in the movies, I did actually enjoy watching "Madea's Family Reunion" and "Why Did I Get Married?" (the original).

So when I saw "Why Did I Get Married Too" available on Netflix to watch instantly, I decided to give it a go.

Whoa. I don't think I was mentally prepared for what I saw.

The basics of the two movies -- Four married couples reunite every year for a 'couple's retreat' in an exotic location and do 'marriage workshops'. "Why Did I Get Married Too" has the group vacationing in the Caribbean. In the first half of the movie, the couples reunite and all the regular light comedy commences... (not all that well, but it does.)

The plots for each couple are abhorable.. to save time and bad flashbacks, I will just outline the worst one.

One couple, Janet Jackson's character and her husband announce at the end of the retreat that they are getting a divorce. RUHROW. Throughout the last half of the movie they are having a vicious cockfight over the separation of their money, including a scene where her almost ex-husband almost rapes her, tosses vodka on her, and burns the only photo album of their dead son. Towards the very end, Janet Jackson's character has a fake cake wheeled into her almost ex's place of work with a gay stripper inside of it and yells at him in front of all of his coworkers, "YOU WANT A BITCH THERE'S YOUR BITCH!". The almost ex responds by leaving his work, getting into his sports car and in his haste driving away, gets RAMMED by a huge truck and guess what.. yeah he DIES!!

No you DIDN'T TYLER PERRY! And that was only ONE of FOUR stories of melodrama in the movie. I haven't the heart to type out the rest.. see the movie yourself if you are curious and tell me what you think..

Holy shit! I think I'm going to lay off the Tyler Perry for a while..


Good day

Mikey just passed his check ride and is now typed in the DC-10. A big YAY for him (and his mustache)!!

I should note that this photo is not Mike... No current Mike 'stashe pics available..
