Clean clean clean...

Well. I handed in my manuscript!! Now it's off to the designer and I wait patiently to get my hands on the 1st rough edition to check the design and make any necessary edits. Eeek!

So I celebrated finishing the book by cleaning my fridge out (I'm wack-a-doo). Ahhhhh it feels good to clean out the fridge. Why do I love cleaning so much? It's completely and utterly satisfying. I also spring cleaned my entire house. Not just a clean-clean but I went through room by room, drawer by drawer and cleaned every single inch of the house. It took me 2 days! *laugh* I should start a cleaning service. :)

I also had a great visit this weekend with my parents this weekend. I love my parents. We sat around, shot the shit and ate a lot of good food.

Gerry and I went and saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall last night with our friends Stu and Sly and I have to say I was a little disappointed. It was "ok" but nothing like how the trailers made it out to be. I thought it was going to be an outrageous romantic comedy romp but instead it was romantic comedy - light with only a few laughs and a lot of uncomfortable scenes. Not uncomfortable in a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" sort of way ... but more like "I want to leave the room" kind of way.

Maybe my expectations were too high because the movie was written by and starred Jason Segel who I've been in love with since Freaks and Geeks and have enjoyed watching his career blossom ... Don't get me wrong, the movie was fun to watch but I think it's more of a 'renter'. Ooooh. Is that too harsh? Maybe not a renter but more of a $2 theater kind of movie. Ooooh. That sounds even harsher.

I also want to complain that in not one but TWO different scenes I could see the boom microphone hanging over the actors. That's just bad movie making ...

I have watched three terribly awful movies this weekend:

- Harold & Kumar go to White castle
- Omega Man

oooaaaaah

I can't wait to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall!! It stars British actor/comedian Russell Brand who is a vegetarian and was voted as PETA's sexiest vegetarian 2007 in the UK and I believe also in 2006. He loves animals and is very passionate about being vegetarian.

I completely agree. My boyfriend and I also saw it last night and we were both disappointed. He noticed the boom mic quite a few times, I saw it once. I was expecting it to be as funny as "Knocked Up" or "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and it definitely was not the same level.

You can come clean my condo! I'm dreading cleaning it when we move. Ugh...
