Happy Friday.

Last night, I went with my friend Amanda to see Black Swan.

It was seriously the most creepy movie I've ever seen.  I thought I had it figured out, but I didn't.  And, I typically love movies like that, but I was not a big fan of this one.  Oh well.  Two down, eight more to go on my Oscar movie list.  I hope to watch Inception tonight, so I'll be well on my way to getting all these movies watched!

Since it's Friday, you all know what that means!  

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?
Wow, there are so many to choose from, but I would likely give it to my church's mission fund.  I'm so blessed to be at a church that has such a heart for missions (both here and abroad).

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
If there is enough snow that it gets me out of work, I welcome them.  But, if the courthouse and my firm are open, then it's just a pain.

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
I wish I was more artistic.  I can't draw, paint, or craft anything to look very pretty but would love to be able to.

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
I really cannot stand watching cable news.  I really believe sometimes that 24 hour news channels perpetuate the problems in this country.  There's simply not enough to talk about for 24 hours without becoming ridiculous.

Politics used to be my obsession in college, and I still care greatly.  But, I wouldn't call myself a junkie anymore.  And, I'm certainly not a celebrity gossip junkie, although I do enjoy keeping track of some celebrities that I like (or dislike).  

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"?
I'm definitely a Cosmo girl or other fruity martinis.  My absolute favorite is the Double Black Diamond from Firebird's Grill.  Tequila makes me want to vomit, so no margaritas for me.

Hope y'all have an awesome weekend!!


  1. i saw black swan and was a little disappointed too...def creepy town. but you should see that director's movie called Requiem for a Dream...ever creepier!

    oh and Inception is a total mind f*ck. great visuals but it went WAY over my head.

  2. I usually love anything dance oriented. That being said, I did not care for the mega creepiness in Black Swan either. They all acted their parts very well I thought, and the concept was creative. But definitely not my cup of tea.

    My two cents: Inception should win best picture. It was absolutely amazing. It does throw your brain for a loop, but's awesome.

  3. I'm hoping to see Black Swan, I've heard so much about it!

  4. So are you the one to blame for Joe liking martinis? Seriously, when we were first dating (within several weeks, I think) he ordered an Appletini. =P I can't believe you don't like margaritas!!!

  5. I have heard about Black Swan being a bit trippy- i'll be passing on that one for sure!

    I share your desire to be more crafty- there are so many talented girls out there making tons of money with their crafting talents- one day maybe we will have time to to learn. Some of it is just copying what you see anyway!

  6. What are the movies on your list? I haven't seen Black Swan yet but I really want to! Inception is really good! :)
