"Is that you, Clarice?"
03:03 p.m.
The boy and I saw Hannibal last night. Believe it or don't believe it, but the boy has never seen Silence of the Lambs in its entirety. But it had been so long since I had been to the theatre to see a good movie that I just gave him a quick run-down of Silnece's plot points and we took off.

And it was good.

It wasn't AS good as the first one, but good nonetheless. Besides, I have to take issue with the sexualization of Clarice Starling in Hannibla. I liked the subtlety of their fascination with each other better the first go round.

I bet I'm really glad it ended differently from the book.

In other news, my mom and I are going on a shopping expedition tomorrow. It's been a while since my mom and I have hung out (or shopped for that matter). I can't begin to tell you how excited I am.

I have money to spend and have lost five or so pounds--so I'm gonna see if I can wrestle my ass into a pair of size 8 jeans. I'll report back my findings.

chickens for all!
03:09 p.m.
Today I bought three flocks of chickens. That's right--chickens.

At Heifer Project International individuals and groups can order livestock for families in developing nations. The flocks of chickens I bought (two in the name of my mom and my sister), for instance, will produce up to 200 eggs per year providing protein and sustainance for a family and their community. Extra eggs and chicks can be sold to pay for education, clothing and medicine.

I feel good about my purchase, even if my skeptic mother is afraid that someone will horde the money or the chicks.

Oh yeah, and a flock of chicks is only $20. (There are also water buffalo, heifers, sheep, goats, even non-stinging bees available as well).

Be cool like me, send a farm animal in the name of someone you are glad has enough food to eat everyday.

I'm back. No need for any hoopla. Let's just get things underway.

Things that have happened since we last met:

-My friend Willie won $1000 in a goldfish eating contest. He downed 240 live fish*--beating out his nearest competitor by over 100 squirmy things. Rumor has it the world record is only 300.
The next day, I'm told, he had a rendevous with his couch and a Family Size bottle of Pepto-Bismol.

*I am unsure if I agree with eating live animals. What do you think?

-I learned I could love a man not only with my heart but with my soul.

-I went to Disneyworld. My dad always promised me Disneyworld. My soulmate gave it to me.

-I discovered that the Betty Page look-alike at school that I always admired for her spunky fashion finds is a bitch.

-My sister got engaged. I'm her maid of honor. I couldn't be more ecstatic for them. I know she is truly happy. And I also knew that bitch would get hitched before me :)

-I have lost weight in a modern medical miracle--no exercise whatsoever.

-I suddenly realized if you are appreciated every day, Valentine's Day is no big whoop. (Although I was showered with more gifts than my heart could ever desire.)

-I fell in love with Bjork way after all the cool kids did.

So that was refreshing. Let's do that again some time, shall we?
