This Friday I am going with my good friend from college, Christina, to Tallahassee. My Uncle Grady and Aunt June live there and I am gonna stay with them for the weekend. On Friday night they are taking me to see Dracula. I am pretty pumped about it. This is what Wikipedia had to say about it...

Dracula is a 1924 stage play adapted by Hamilton Deane from the novel of the same name by Bram Stoker, and subsequently revised by John L. Balderston. It was the first adaptation of the novel authorised by Stoker's widow, and has influenced many subsequent adaptations.
The original production starred
Raymond Huntley as Dracula; Deane had originally intended to play the title role himself, but in the event opted for the role of Van Helsing. This production toured England for three years before settling in London.
In 1927 the play was brought to
Broadway by Horace Liveright, who hired John L. Balderston to revise the script for American audiences. The American production starred Béla Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role, with Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing; both actors reprised their roles in the 1931 film version, which drew on the Deane-Balderston play.
In addition to radically compressing the plot, the play reduced the number of significant characters, combining
Lucy Westenra and Mina Murray into a single character, making John Seward this Lucy's father, and disposing of Quincey Morris and Arthur Holmwood.

I happened upon the movie i'm reed fish last night. I was searching through all of the movies on demand titles and saw that this movie starred Alexis Bledel. I have enjoyed the stuff she is in so I decided to check it out. It is such a cute movie. The story is very suprising. You are about 1/2 way through when things take a twist. I like that. Jay Baruchel, the lead guy, is so funny. I love his facial expressions. I definitly reccomend it as a good chick flic.

P.S. - check out the singer/actress Schuyler Fisk in the movie. She has an amazing voice. Come to find out she is the daughter of Sissy Spacek. You can check out her music on myspace. She is touring with one of my fave's Josh Radin. While you're at it check him out too!!

About 3 years ago I "adopted" a mini-schnauzer from my friends Paul and Cathy. He was then called Bootsy. He has since been dubbed Mr. Boots. I love my dog. Although he can drive me completely bonkers he is a great companion. Somehow I did not realize how attached to him I was. That is, until this week. Friday he had some sort of spasm, yelped out and then kinda froze in a weird position. I was totally freaked out. I called my parents, called the vet and in the end it was decided that I should wait to see what happens. Well it kept happening. By yesterday I was convinced that he was having seizures. Yesterday I left him home all day while I was at work. I was in such a panic on my drive home that I was going to find a dead dog. He was not. He was still hurting but totally alive. I took him to the vet. Come to find out the vet thinks he has a pulled muscle. Should not be a big deal at all. He has to take a week of anti-inflammatory meds and he should be fine. I have come to realize that I am one of those crazy dog people that I totally mock. While I maintain that I will not spend thousands of dollars on the health of my dog I was terrified that something was wrong. I am so glad to say he is ok. Thanks to all of my friends who put up with my worriedness. They all realize how much I love him.

Yesterday I went to Publix. Pretty much as soon as I walked in I was overwhelmed with the smell of cinnamon. I am a HUGE fan of cinnamon smells. I kept walking around the store and in the fruits & veggie section I noticed the cinnamon brooms. I was so excited. Having the brooms means it is a certain time of year. It is fall. It is time to have thing smell "fall like". So I scooped one of the brooms up and put it in my cart. My house smells so nice now. I woke up this morning and went down stairs and was immediately surprised with the scent of cinnamon tingling my nose. I love it!

Ok so I just opened my purse to get some chapstick. Come to realize that I have some interesting things in my purse and thought I would share...

1. 2 Lip Smacker chapsticks
2. 1 tube of lipstick
3. 1 tube of lip gloss
4. tide pen
5. earrings (belong to my roomie)
6. earplugs (I have NO idea why)
7. check book
8. phone
9. wallet
10. DVD (needs to be returned to Blockbuster)

I do think the 4 things of lip gloss/chapstick is kinda funny. You just never know what you will be in the mood for. The other funny thing is that I change my purse often and still manage to have this much junk in it!

Let me start by saying that I am not a reality TV watcher. For some reason I have never really been able to get into it. Last week my roomie and I were waiting for our new guilty pleasure, Gossip Girl, to start and we watched Kid Nation. There has been a lot of controversy over this show. The premise is that there is a group of kids living in an abandoned town with no adult supervision. It is kinda like survivor in that there are challenges between teams. The difference is that the challenges determine what "class" you are in. Upper class has pretty much no work to do and Lower Class has to clean the outhouses and other dirty jobs. There is a council of 4 kids who are the leaders of each group. Anytime rules are set or things are awarded it is through the council. Each week 1 kid who stands out to the council is awarded a gold star. The kicker is that it is a 2 lb gold star worth $20,000! It is really interesting to see the dynamic with the kids. Also to see who the leaders are and are not. If you have time check it out!
