Oops I forgot

Well time to get a blog out again. My vacation ended up being 4 exciting days in Idaho. (contain your excitement, I know hehe) but it was better than nothing.

But it has got me thinking about what I could do.. if there were no limits. If I wasn't working in the field I am and had unlimited options... what shall I do?

What would you do if you had to do it all over again? I am interested to hear what everyone thinks.

I made it through another month end, by the skin of my teeth, on the brink of an anxiety attack all day. Thank GOD it is over.. Working in a sales oriented field... I hate the last day of the month. It still stumps me to this day that my boss is so freakin hyper. That is probably cause her workflow isn't interrupted and people aren't questioning her work all day long. Or maybe it is her ODing on Dr Pepper. :) I may have to try that next month...
Yea.. I need to get out of sales, that is for sure.

Now I gotta cut loose.....

For those of you wondering where Lehi, Utah is... let me just say one word.


That is right.. Footloose was shot in these dear little town. Lehi Rollers Mills is where the dance took place and where the main character worked. There is a made up sign for the church in one scene that is by a little underpass. I drive by it every day (though the sign is no longer there..)

For some reason I had the song stuck in my head to I had to go buy the ever classic movie... and it is pretty cool to see. I love watching movies when I can spot all the locations in the movie.

Touched by An Angel used to film ALL the time right next to my ex-boyfriends house. Though, when they did it drove me pretty insane because they weren't quiet about it and generally did it only at night and the wee hours of the morning.

Malidano Miracle (I hope that is how you spell that) was shooting down in Eureka and many of the scenes they shot were shot in a friend's Grandfather's buildings. We would sit upstairs while they were filming downstairs or watch across the street while they shot at the church.

When I was working at my previous job one of my clients was frequently an extra on shows filmed locally and also landed small parts. Her daughters did the same. She came in one time telling me that he daughter co stared with Edward Furlong when he was starting out and she had never kissed anyone. Her first kiss was Edward Fulong on screen.. I think I would be nervously sick about that. I guess she got teased about it for quite sometime. Though, now I am sure all the girls are jealous.

So those are my great star/ famous stories of the day...
Join me again next time when I find something interesting to talk about... ;)

About that time for another blog...

I finally figured out what I am doing on vacation!
Here I go to Tulsa... in my car! (Yea.. I am not sure what I was thinking either)
There will be a couple of stops on the way but I am pretty stoked! Now, if only Kansas wasn't in my way! :)

This weekend I am spending all my time getting ready.
Is it Friday yet? :)v

Miracle... The Writer???

Do you remember those handwriting books we all had to use in elementary school? BIG FAT WRITING LINES with a big - - - - - - dashed line in the middle so you could practice your cursive letters? I used to take an entire notebook of those and turn them into my own story books. I would write a story book and every othr page would be an intricate and beautiful and colorful crayon drawing illustrating the story.. all done by yours truly. I used to take them into my teacher and ask to read them... I don't remember anything about the particular story lines but I have a snapshot in my brain of a page with a character named "The mum of dum" and I remember the illustration of this person in a red striped suit (much like a jailbird type suit) that was chained to the wall. And I remember the Mum of Dum was a bad guy.. so there ya go.. Jenn's random memory of the day. Don't think that qualifies me as a writer, but it does attest to the fact that I once had a creative mind :)

Welcome to the wideworld of podcasts!!

I LOVE books on tape while I am doing things around the house. Imagine my excitement when I discovered the concept of podcasts (yes.. I know.. two steps behind the times...hehe) I load my ipod up at night and listen as I work out, as I drive, as I cook.

Here is a little gem I found:

Even if you aren't into yoga at all.. there is lots of gems to be found in this hip, tranquil chick's podcasts. She talks about journaling, traveling, beauty, health etc... it is a chick flick of a website but it just sucked me in. I am currently working on listening to every single podcast. I'll let you know when I find another that intrigues me :) heh.

I am very proud of myself today. I woke up early and walked approx 3 miles by 7am this morning! WOO HOO! and did I mention I made it to the gym yesterday? Yes! Me! The Gym!! I even lifted *gasp* weights. My arms were killing me today.

That was a great way to start the day. Sadly I had to go to the dentist to get a cavity filled. I really wonder if there is a class at dentist school that teaches dentist "hand-drill-water squirty thingy- and suction thingy-in mouth language" My lord! To finish it up with my mouth half numb was great fun too. Swallowing water and only feeling it half way just made me more thirsty. I can't explain it!

So here is to a great start of my week...and hopefully a great start to yours!

7-7-7 is coming!

A friend pointed out to me that it will soon be 07-07-07. I think I need to have a lucky 7 party. I wish I would have thought of it before!!! Too fun!

Well my favorite holiday is just days away. Who can resist Independence Day? The BBQ's, warm weather, good friends, and THE FIREWORKS!! WOOO HOOO!!!

The roomie is going out of town this week and I don't have many friends left that are unattached or childless or both so.. I am a little sad about that:(

So.. that is about all going on with me for the moment. Still trying to figure out what to do on my vacation in a few weeks...
