Okay, we ALL have these people in our lives.  I strive everyday NOT to be like these people.  The “one-uppers!”  I can’t even begin to express how much I do not like having these people in my life.  I should really be more accepting of their flaws but it’s totally pain in the butt to interact or have a conversation with these people.  I have one in particular.  Let’s call her “Karen”. 


Karen was my first true, face to face, encounter with this kind.  But since she entered into my life.  It hasn’t been the same.  And I don’t mean in a good way.  Literally EVERY conversation, EVERY email has a “one-upper” tone.   I am beginning to get really irritated by her presence in my life and trying to figure out how to decrease her presence in my life.  I may have to move to a different state, change names, leave my job and learn a new language but it may actually be worth it at the end….






If you haven’t heard, today is a really big day.  Possibly historical, and for some, even life changing.  Clearly not for me and hopefully not for my husband but I know there are people who are out there who will be genuinely sadden by the thought of having to watch the series finale of the “Battlestar Galatica.  Yes, you heard ,me right, the last episode of the series is airing tonight and hopefully it will answer many questions.  At least that’s what I’ve been told by my husband who loves this show. 


The original series was on tv in the 70’s and books/comics adaptations were around for some time as well.  Even if you don’t know about the show and haven’t watched a single episode like myself, I’m sure you would recognize words like, “Frak”, “Frakking”, “Fraker”…. or other variations of this word.  And for a show on the Sci-Fi network, it’s getting a fairly decent ratings/audience, not to mention ton of media coverage.  I’m sure the incredibly attractive, sexy, and hot actors on the show has nothing to do with it….


I’m sure we’ll be ordering in today, sitting in front of the tv, watching the last episode with my husband.  I will do this because it will be an awesome way for me to show him exactly how much I love him!

The movie was okay.  The graphics were freaking amazing but I think they over did it with the length. Just poor editing? With all the hype, I think people were generally expecting something different. But it was good to hear that the die hard fans just loved it because it was so true to the book. I personally thought it was un-necessary for the blue character to be walking around naked the whole movie but John was able to see the reference to Adam, before the fall.
