New Droid R2D2

Okay, so for my birthday I got a new Droid R2D2– permanently sealing my fate as a certified geek. Yes, I admit it– I’m a big-time Star Wars fangirl. This is my first Droid– I had a Blackberry Pearl before, so this is a pretty big change. I’ll definitely be blogging about all the stuff I learn along the way… Already downloaded a few (free) apps from the market, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. I’ve gotten Handcent SMS (changing the LED to flash a nice customized purple color when I get a text message was pretty awesome) and Rainy Days (I’m still trying out different weather apps to see which is the best for me) and Anycut, even though I haven’t figured out how to use that one yet. Oh yeah, I also downloaded RadarNow (another weather one) but it required me to do some kind of wifi GPS something-or-other to set my location, so I decided to delete that one for now. If anyone knows of some awesome free apps, let me know what they are and what they do!

Cake decorating FTW!

So my brother and my sister-in-law recently shipped me my birthday present from them, which was… drum roll… a cake decorating kit! YES. Lauren’s been making and decorating cakes up in Boston for a while now, and actually has been selling them and making some pretty decent money. Very cool. So now I’ve caught the cake decorating fever!

I’ll definitely have to post pictures of my cake-making endeavors on here. I made a cake last year for my birthday party… The party theme was the video game Portal (the cake is a lie), and so of course, the birthday cake was a replica of the Portal cake. Here’s a picture of that wonderful cake:

the cake is a lie...

So now that I’m armed with a super-duper cake decorating kit, think of all the awesome possibilities. 🙂 I’m thinking some awesome video-game-themed cakes in the near future… yeeees.

(P.S. If you want a recipe for this cake, hit me up in the comments section. My mom and I basically invented our own recipe based on my personal taste in cakes and the pictures of the cake in the game. It tastes REALLY GOOD.)

Jumanji!

I love this movie. It’s one of those movies that I can pop into the DVD player just about any time and watch it. It just never gets old. I call it one of my “cleaning movies”– whenever I get on a cleaning kick (to be honest, that’s really rare…), I stick one of these movies in and go to town. It’s usually either Jumanji, the first disc of the sixth season of Scrubs (by far the best disc of the best season of the best show– I mean, it’s got the episodes “My Musical,” “My House,” AND “My Best Friend’s Baby’s Baby and My Baby’s Baby”– all really stellar episodes on one disc), or my personal favorite– Twister. Arguably the best movie of all time. Srsly. (And by srsly, I mean… it’s srsly arguable. It’s probably not the best movie… but it is awesome. I mean, rockin’ tornado effects, a trite plotline that you don’t have to pay attention to in order to understand the movie, flying cows, and… anyway… I digress.)

Anyway. The point is, I’m currently watching me some Jumanji, curled up in my favorite leather chair in my Star Wars pajama pants, wrapped up in my Super Mario Bro. fleece blanket, with the extremely pungent but pleasant scent of Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning Day Countertop Spray wafting from my newly-sparkling-clean kitchen, and a container of all-natural Choban greek yogurt (pineapple!!) on the table beside me. Ahhh, what a good way to end the evening.

Ahahah. I just LOL’d… I happened to look up from my blog just in time to see the part of the movie where the two monkeys on a motorcycle speed by the cop and Alan in the police car. I can’t help it. It makes me giggle every time. Silly monkeys.

Anybody out there have a movie/movies that you can just watch over and over again? Anyone? Bueller?
