Monday Brain Dump: Currently

I haven’t done one of these in awhile…

Lusting: the new Dell Inspiron Mini 9
Small, low power, and inexpensive. It’s a portable blogger’s dream! And did I mention it’s only $350? And weighs less than 2.5lbs? And boots up in 45 seconds? It’s no Apple, but at that price….who cares? I’m sold!

Listening: You Don’t Know Me by Ben Folds Ft. Regina Spektor
I forgot how much I loooove Ben Folds!

Buying: Cherish Mary Jane Flat in red
I never thought I would buy red shoes but these mary janes were calling me. It didn’t help that they were only 21.99 from Payless!

Playing: Wii Fit
I finally got the Wii Fit from my awesome sister. I’m hopeful that this will help me become more fit as I’m the biggest couch potato ever. So far it’s been pretty fun! And I actually am a bit sore!!

Watching: Dark Knight
I think I’m one of the last people to see this but I finally did. After all of the hype, I thought it was good but not that good. I was disappointed with the ending and I don’t remember Christian Bale’s gruff voice being so….gruff. It was kind of annoying. Also, I was hoping The Joker would be a little bit more senile/scary. I did love the part when Heath says “why so serious” though.

Eating: Blackberry pie from the farmer’s market in Solvang
omg! this was the best pie ever. I wish I had taken note of the stand I bought it from

that’s a great deal for a laptop!

Man, I want a Fit so bad…but I’m not willing to pay a wicked high price. I’ll keep looking…

The Dark Knight: Why so serious, indeed (

Blackberry pie: YUM!

i want that mini laptop so bad! It comes with ubuntu pre-installed witch IMO is the best OS ever. Also i read that if you buy a Dell desktop you can get the mini for only 99!!!!!!! WANT! WANT!

I actually agree with you that Batman was overrated, it needed much better editing and it was overly cluttered, didnt know what to do with itself sometimes, but as for the Joker….come on! That was the singular greatest performance I have seen in a LONG time, it was perfection! He made Jack Nicholson look like Andy Dick. He was the movie!

In terms of history, that is also probably the greatest swansong performance you could ask for, setting the bar like that. I mean look at poor Raul Julia! All those years acting, and then you die after playing M. Bison in Streetfighter?? That’s among the worst indignities an actor can bear, like dying during a filming of a Polly-o String cheese commercial or something.
