Could Hugh Take Off His Shirt in 'Wolverine' Anymore Than He Did? I Think Not.

I've had a whirlwind weekend. The original plan was to spend three days in the Detroit area. Due to a series of events including Wil Wheaton canceling a con appearance and parents (not mine) making an unexpected trip to town, a weekend turned into a day trip. This was probably for the best for a variety of reasons that I won't go into because it would a) take me a long time to type up and b) this is a public post.

Besides getting to hang out with friends, the trip included my first ever excursion to Ikea and seeing Wolverine. I'm glad I got to experience Ikea first hand, but I'm not sure it's my type of store. The furniture is too modern and generic for my tastes and there is just too much stuff. I would have been overwhelmed had I not zeroed in on specific items I was looking for. I bought a few odds and ends including two wee, cute lamps, I've developed a thing for lighting and light fixtures in recent years, and ended up spending less than $40.

As for Wolverine...

I had an epiphany about The Office. I really enjoy the show when Michael Scott is shown to excel at his work. Coming late to the series, I never understood how Michael could have become a manager. Now, I get it. People can be good at their job, but utter failures in their personal life. And I want an icon that says, "I am not to be truffled with." :)

And 'Casual Friday' struck a personal chord with me. I once reported a former co-worker for wearing a track suit and sneakers to work on a Friday. And there was the attorney who (I believe only once) wore a bedazzled hoodie. I could go on. While the attire in the episode was extreme, not as extreme as some might think.

I have three Dreamwidth codes if anyone wants one. If I don't already have your email address, you can email me at my Live Journal addy and I'll hook you up. Also, I know many of you on my Flist are either not posting to DW or crossposting, but if you are posting different content on DW or are opting to make that your primary journal, please let me know and I'll start checking my account there more than once a week. ;)

I've been thinking of making some changes to my LJ such as dropping my Lee banner. Don't collapse of shock. I'll reiterate I still love Lee Adama and I still love Battlestar Galactica, but the show is over and I'm thinking it's the right time to revamp my journal. I want to try a different style that I may or may not be able to update with a banner given my limited coding skills. And if I do create a new banner, I want it to reflect more about me. On my Twitter page I've included a photo of Nick, Nora, and Asta, I wouldn't mind including them here as well, along with Jamie, and maybe other stars, TV series, and films I like.

Now, off it do laundry and clean! You so want my life, don't you?
