sooooo glad i'm not an elephant...

for those of you who think it sucks to be a woman...

"Veterinarians removed a dead 330-pound calf from the womb of an Asian elephant stalled in labor for four days... [she] had carried the calf for nearly two years and was three weeks past the due date... It will take her three to six months to fully recover from the surgery..."

soooooo glad i'm not an elephant!

Rained out... for a change...

ok enough with the rain already! i'm ready for the beach... seriously! friday nite it rained. met jason at friday's (where else!). then we watched the simpsons finale (taped it a couple weeks ago)... and watched poor lenny (roommate's cat) wheezing all over the apartment as he has developed kitty asthma (!). apparently whatever they gave him at the vet hadn't worn off because he kept walking into stuff. i felt sooo bad but it was kind of funny :( saturday we went to dinner & a movie with "j.jill" as we call them (his roommate, jarret, and jarret's gf jill). we ate at not your average joe's which is a favorite since they have a very different menu than you'd see anywhere else. and of course because they've got that pre-meal bread basket thing going. we saw "the break-up," which despite its reviews was pretty funny, altho it did get a little drama-heavy towards the end. i won't give it away but it was one of those "huh??" kind of endings.

speaking of not giving away endings i haven't seen the sopranos season finale yet and have spent the day avoiding mention of it! the o.c. finale was ruined for me when i opened my browser, which had msn set as the home page, and the top headline mentioned who it was that died. not that i wouldn't have guessed during the episode... but it would have been nice to not be 100% sure! so today i changed channels on tv/radio several times and had to tell my coworkers not to discuss the ending yet when they started chatting about it! will probably watch tonite with jason after we drop off his truck for some more repairs. hopefully that will solve all of his auto problems!

hope everyone had a great weekend! and that we start getting better weather, instead of rain all weekend and then all clear in time for the work week :/
