It's winter......no...it's summer....no...it's fall.......

New England is being it's typical self and can't decide what it wants to do. Notice the previous post with pics of snow coming down in mid-October. Today it will be 70 degrees out. ???? I've decided that if I were Queen of the World, there would only be a work-day if the weather was bad. Anyone want to vote for me? I'd get up in the morning and check the weather and decide whether or not there'd be work. Then I'd Twitter/Facebook/Blackberry/Whatever everyone and let them know if they should go to work or to the beach. Of course, I'd need someone to train me on the aforementioned things cause, frankly, I have no clue. Speaking of training ( and having no clue) I have to go to training today. I'm going to be doing car loan applications at work. This training is for "Extended Warranty Coverage". I haven't had the training on the actual car loans yet, but I'm doing this training first. Go figure. Should be clear as mud by the end of the day. We're babysitting my niece this Saturday night and we thought we'd take her to a movie. I noticed "Where the Wild Things Are" is playing. However, it's in "IMAX". Which sounds like fun, although I don't really care if it is or not. The problem is.....it's $4 per ticket extra for "the IMAX experience"! On top of the $10 for the basic ticket!! Is this ridiculous or what? AND of course you have to buy popcorn and/or candy and drinks.....cause they won't let you bring anything in. Hubby and I don't go out to the movies much. In fact, we just signed up for Netflix. I don't know how much we'll use it. It took us three weeks to send back the first two things we borrowed. We'll be Netflix's best customers.....pay the money but hardly use the service. Kind of like having a membership to the gym.

hahahaha! The gyms of the world are quite a racket, huh? I think I'll start something and offer it at a membership price then make is so..um..useless..that no one will want to come and I'll be rich!

And I TOTALLY agree with you about work..only on the icky days..but I do love the rain, so we'd have to NOT go in on those days too..oh and snow? Love it..so I'd only go in on really hot, dry, un-snowing, windy days..think that's going on my next resume...

Netflix is great, you'll use it more than you think!

Also, I saw "Where the Wild Things Are" in IMAX, and it is not necessary. Just go see it in a normal theater; the camera is mostly hand-held so if you're not in the very back of the IMAX theater you might get a little dizzy.

Can't wait to see you on Sunday!

Our weather has been crazy, too... lots of rain, then hot, then cold. Wish it'd make up it's mind!! =)

IMAX experience for my husband means, can I get a brown paper bag with my ticket cuz I'm sure to puke. haha, so we've never been able to "experience" it. =)

I completely agree. No work if it is sunny, nice, a crisp fall day, snowing, going to rain soon so we should enjoy the day it's not raining... all of those.

Where do I cast my vote to make you Queen. I am totally lovin' the idea of getting a messages telling me "go to the beach" (anywhere but work)!!

P.S. We did blockbuster videos..which is much like Netflix. We really enjoyed it. We spent a lot of time watching sitcoms! Good fun!
