The Simpsons Movie

We decided to check out the Simpsons Movie on Sunday since I found a movie theatre near us that has $4 matinees. The movie itself wasn't bad, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I would not have spent a full $10 to see it. A couple of scenes had us in stitches, and the storyline was, as with most Simpsons episodes, non-impacting on the main cartoon. I do think they have gone a bit overboard with the advertising....I mean, this is the Simpsons-we already know and love it, ya know?

Sweet 22 inch goodness!

My new PC finally arrived yesterday and boy is it ever a beast! It is unbelievably fast and I still can't get over the screen!

I've just been loading it up with some of my standard goodies, but now I am truly able to get the Sidebar gadgets I reaally want without worrying about them slowing me down! Which means that I can use the i-See gadget and catch up on all my Geekbriefs!

Happy 30th Birthday! (To me!)

Today I turn the big 3-0! Woohoo! It certainly has been an unbelievable year so far. I've finally finished with unpacking and decorating the whole house which is no small feat with a tiny person inside you! In other, more thrilling news, we are having a BOY! I could not be happier-if ever there was a boy's dad it's Dean.
I've also spent a fair amount of time socializing with new friends that I've met....I was worried about moving from my comfort zone and circle of friends, but I've already found a couple of niches I'm quite comfy in now.
On the tech front, I am getting a new PC later this week and it is quite the beast with a 22 inch flat screen and
