Dear Borders, ILU!! *hugs*

$79.99 DVD + 40% off any DVD Box Set coupon + $5 in Borders Bucks + $2.04 leftover merch credit + $20 gift card (thanks again [livejournal.com profile] sister_wolf! ) = $23.92 out of pocket

And now I own the far superior second season of Captain Jack and his merry band of inept alien chasers on DVD for my very own!! =) And you better believe that I went down to get it on my lunch break. Torchwood is SRS BZNS, you know.
leighblack: (TW - Yes Please)
Do you ever worry that something is wrong with you? Because I bought both I am Legend and Enchanted on DVD today and I'm really concerned that that odd combination indicates that I'm mentally unbalanced. Or something.

I already want this week to END ALREADY and it's only Tuesday. Ugh. Thank the gods that I'll have a double dose of Captain Jack & Ianto to help me get through the week.
leighblack: (JB - False Advertising)
Hi there. You might have noticed that I've been MIA for a couple days. Or maybe you didn't. Whatever. Anyhow, I'm sick. SICK. Curling up in a ball, shaking with fever, coughing my lungs out kind of sick. Oh yeah. Good times. Yet I still worked at Hallmark on Saturday for 9 hours without a break. I even managed to fight off passing out from my fever several times. Go me. =/

I called in sick to the day job yesterday and dragged myself to the doctor, who told me there wasn't anything she could really do. She was nice enough to give me some Robitussin with Codeine so I could try to get some sleep. It helped a little. I only woke up every 3 hours last night, instead of every hour.

I still feel pretty crappy and I still have a light fever, but I'm at work anyways. And I'll be at Hallmark tonight. And I'm determined to show up at Applebees for karaoke tonight, even if it's only for a little while. It's not like I can sing anyways since my voice is pretty much shot.

Since I had to go out yesterday, I gave in to my ingrained desire to own things and used my 40% off DVD box sets at Borders coupon to buy Doctor Who series 1. What can I say? I'm weak.

Anyhow. That's what's up with me right now. How are you guys?
leighblack: (Two Guys - This is SO great!)
I had to work this morning. Which wasn't as bad as you'd think. Hallmark doesn't really have any big specials for the weekend. And all I really had to do was take down the Thanksgiving stuff and put out the rest of the Christmas stuff. It only took about four hours and then I was free for the rest of the day.

I decided to run to Best buy to see if they had the re-released boys Like Girls CD. Since it was about 1pm when I got there, it was busy but not swamped. I walked in, grabbed a couple CDs, paid and got out in under ten minutes. Not too bad. Then I went to Wal-Mart. I went to get conditioner, allergy meds and goop for my hair. And I ended up spending $102. =/ But I needed a new pair of jeans. And a hockey jersey. And three DVDs. Seriously, I have no will power.

So I was sitting here watching the Law & Order marathon and it was nagging & nagging me that I should go back to Best Buy. I finally gave in and did, where I bought the first two seasons of The Wire on DVD. But they were 50% off! That's a damn good deal. I'm just not going to allow myself to watch them until I've gotten through Series 3 of Doctor Who. Because that's a TV priority right now.
leighblack: (Kasey - The Sun Would Shine)
Wow. I was just at Chipotle picking up dinner and they had Kasey Chambers' "Wayward Angel" playing. I honestly stood agape for a moment. I've never just happened to hear Kasey while I've been out and about before.

I don't know how I didn't know this before today, but Wedding Wars will be available on DVD on Tuesday. Yes, it was hokey and dorky. But Simon Tam shacking up with Uncle Jesse? Yes please!

I had a customer rant I was going to write, but it's not worth the effort. Just don't be an asshole to the people trying to help you, okay? It's not that hard to figure out. And for crying out loud! SHOWER. Please.
leighblack: (Me - Computer Love)
I just got back from running to the Post Office, Best Buy and Chipotle. It is the 29th of December and I went out without a jacket, wearing my Doc sandals and no socks. Global warming FTW! We're getting the storm that hit Denver yesterday, but it's so warm here that it'll probably all be rain.

I went to Best Buy hoping to pick up Season 1 of The Wire with my gift cards (then getting 2 & 3 on eBay with the money [livejournal.com profile] kokyu gave me for my Homicide DVDs) but they didn't have any in stock. NO seasons at all! Instead, I bought a groovy Clerks II gift pack. Yes, I already bought that DVD, but I'm a sucker for DVDs packaged with goodies. And it comes with a Moobys visor! I'll give the previously purchased DVD to my sister. Also, I had decided my DVD collection wasn't anywhere near complete because I didn't have Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club, so I bought both of those too.

I'm off from work both yesterday and today. They haven't called me once! YAY! I had intended to clean my apartment, but instead I've been cleaning up my computer. Also desperately needed. You just can't really see that I've accomplished anything like if I were to clean my living space. I've decided that New Year's Day will be for taking down the tree and I'll clean the living room then. Maybe.
leighblack: (T-Rex - Kick ass!)
A little retail therapy and things are looking up for the day. I got three new DVDs (Clerks 2, An Evening with Kevin Smith 2 and Scoop) three new books (Jennifer Ashley, Shannon Drake and Cameron Dean) plus other stuff I didn't really need. YAY!!

I'm a moron and left my phone at work. So don't call me tonight, eh? I'll be at Hallmark anyways.
leighblack: (Boondock Saints - Il Duce)
OMG! The Office Season 2 is now mine!! I had to throw Disc 4 in immediately to watch the bonus footage from Drug Testing to find out who left the joint in the parking lot. AND there's nearly 17 minutes of bloopers. *loves*
leighblack: (BBM - No peeking!)
Dakota County, Minnesota! That's where I live!!* I gave a little cheer when it was mentioned.
*This comment will only make sense if you're watching The West Wing.

This may amuse you if you know my mom. Or, if you have a mom. My mom gets mad whenever I mention I've bought a new DVD because she thinks I'm throwing all my money away. Yes, I even get yelled at about it sometimes, even though I'm almost 30 years old. Then today she tells me that she's excited for me to go shopping this week because she wants me to buy new DVDs. Specifically, Brokeback Mountain (which I'll of course be buying) and Narnia (which I have no desire to see or buy) because she wants to be able to borrow them from me. Ummmmm, okay? *shakes head*

Wait.

leighblack: (Jordan - Huh?)
Did I just see an ad that said Walk the Line is coming out on DVD next week? Isn't it still out in the theater?!? Weird. They're certainly making sure it's out before the Oscars.
leighblack: (SNL - Crazy Delicious)
OHHHH...EM...GEE

The Alec Baldwin DVD has freaking commentary!! This is fabulous!!


Ummmm...those CJ caps I said would be done tonight?? Make that this weekend. Sorry. =/
leighblack: (SNL - Crazy Delicious)
I am now the proud owner of Saturday Night Live: The Best of Alec Baldwin on DVD. Sweeeeet! The Scout Master & Canteen Boy is quite possibly my favorite SNL sketch ever. Sadly, I have to work tonight so I can't watch it all until later. =/

And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel are fab-u-lous!!

YAY!!

Serenity on DVD in time for Christmas!

River is HAWT on that cover. I see a new icon in my future.

Info for those too lazy to click on the link )
leighblack: (Hugh - Grrr!)
Yeah, I probably shouldn't have watched ALL of Season 1 of Nip/Tuck in one sitting. =/ Now I'm jonesing to run out and get Season 2. And really, I shouldn't.


But you know I will.
leighblack: (Madonna - Fabulous)
Since I'm still not feeling all that well, I decided not to go to work again today. I'm a little worried that the new boss might think I'm avoiding him. =) Totally not the case though, as I think he'll be fine.

So, I had a discussion with my stomach about behaving for an hour or so and ran out to do some errands, since I got paid today. Honestly, I know Wal-Mart is an evil corporate giant, but their DVD section is like crack. Things I bought today:
*Wicked: The Grimmerie - Way cool! Still, I think the Rent bible has it beat.
*Susan Squires' The Hunger - Yay! I luuuuuurved The Companion, so I'm very excited to read this.
*The first and third books in the Crimson City series, since I already bought the 2nd book.
*A copy of Curve magazine and the new RT Book Club.
*Batman Begins for $15
*The first season of Nip/Tuck for $20
*The first season of Wonder Woman for $20
*The Ref for $5
*A horribly gaudy velour pillow
*Another new sweater

I think I did pretty good! Now I'm home and back in my jammies and planning to spend the day nestled in front of the TV.
leighblack: (Nigel - Sure Looks Nice)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dazeebean, she, [livejournal.com profile] taylorea and I went to see Transporter 2 tonight. Truly, it was teh suckage. And I enjoyed it immensely! Dude, I laughed through nearly the entire movie!! I just don't think that was the director's intention. I've never seen a watermelon used as a weapon before, but there you go.

But what the fuck is with Jason Statham being fully clothed except for about 5 seconds?!? Why else would anyone see that movie? We want nekked!! And NOT the greasy bad guy with the bad teeth nekked. Or the fugly chick with the eyeliner problem nekked. Please, thanks.

And someone needs to convince me that I CANNOT afford the House DVDs. Because that's exactly what I want to put the gift card [livejournal.com profile] taylorea just gave me for my bday towards. I do not need to start watching another show. At all. Or a $50 DVD set to buy.

MUST.HAVE

leighblack: (Chad - Sexy!)
From [livejournal.com profile] faustfatale's journal:
For those of us who cannot get enough of shirtless Jason Statham covered in motor oil, there is this new deluxe special edition of The Transporter with extended fight scenes, including something like seven more minutes of greased up goodness.
leighblack: (Chad - Sex Cymbal)
Okay, I know a lot of this stupid show is staged, but this is still pretty damn funny! "Normally, I wouldn't even get up at this hour for sex." "Pleasedon'tcallonme. Pleasedon'tcallonme. Pleasedon'tcallonme." *snerk*

I'm pissed that I couldn't afford to go to Rock Never Stops tonight. I'm pissed that I can't afford to buy Sin City today. But I am super-happy that I watched Joey Grey sing "Razzle Dazzle" with a chorus of Muppets in tuxedos today! My Muppet Show DVDs rock!!
leighblack: (CJ Fandom - Big Gun)
I really should know better than to go into a bookstore, since books are like Kryptonite to me. But I needed to pick up the book for our next book club meeting, so I found myself going into B&N today. I behaved! Besides A Million Little Pieces by James Frey, I also grabbed Kerrelyn Sparks' How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire, since I read somewhere that it was entertaining. I almost picked up Marjorie M. Liu's new book (which I've already forgotten the title of) since it's a paranormal with vamps. I LOVED Tiger Eye when I read it earlier this year. But, I shouldn't spend the extra money right now, so I put it back. Now I just have to get A Million Little Pieces read by Wednesday night. No problem. I think. =/ I'm also about halfway through The Good, the Bad and the Undead. It's not moving very fast yet.

The only other thing I had to do this weekend was renew my driver's license, which I did yesterday. I also bought The Muppet Show: Season One on DVD, which I didn't need to do, but did it anyways. I'm not going to let myself watch any of it until I get through 50 pages of my book though. It's a very Wicked-riffic DVD set, as Joel Grey is the guest host in one episode, and Ben Vereen in another.
leighblack: (Munch & Brisco - Listen)
Things I owe people:
- Season 1 of CJ for [livejournal.com profile] amazonqueenkate Ready & waiting! I just need your address.
- DVD of Nigelicious CJ episodes for [livejournal.com profile] devisun7 Done! Packaged & ready for the post office on Monday.
- Muppets Wizard of Oz on DVD for [livejournal.com profile] auzrais Will do either tonight or tomorrow and mail on Monday.
- Copy of Wicked Cast Recording, DVD of Boondock Saints to borrow and $$ for Kasey Chambers ticket for [livejournal.com profile] duckduck Will give you when I see you on Thursday. BTW, how much is the ticket with the fees & everything?

Do I owe anyone else anything? Because I have a tendency to forget things. Does anyone else want anything from me? This is your opportunity to speak up! Icons, music, DVDs, whatever...

I was finally able to join Audioscrobbler today. Add me if you're on there! Or join up if you're interested. You can see the weird twists & turns my musical tastes take.

She Who Has No Grip on Reality may be trying to stalk me through my journal, so you might want to watch what you have to say about Coffeerooms on here for a little while. I refuse to make my journal FO just because of some whackbag with way too much free time & a paranoia complex. Apparently, now I'm a witch and I'm out to get her and the whole board. I wonder what it's like to give yourself that much importance?? *shrugs*
