1)Thursday mom went and got us a new beagle puppy. We named her Chloe. She’s 12 weeks old and very cute. Although she’s gonna live outside, we’re still having to get her trained to do her business out of the yard, not jump on people’s legs, not chew on clothes and other things, but my brother is making it very difficult. Seriously, if I’m trying to train the dog not to jump on people, don’t encourage her to jump on you. Oh well, anyways, she seems to get quite excited when we walk the woods path, so looks like I got another hunting beagle like my baby. :D
That said, I spent about 20 minutes this morning getting her out from under the porch this morning since she forgot how to get out and then blocking her path back in. Since it rained, Dad only lets dogs on the front porch (the back one is the dogs’) when someone is on it, and she’s not totally comfortable hanging w/ the big dogs yet(esp since they don’t like her much yet either) she decided under the porch was the place to go.

2)I went to see Public Enemies Friday. It was very good. Johnny Depp was fabulous as always, and I just love classy bank robbers in fedoras anyways. Also, how the hell had my brother never heard of Baby Face Nelson before Friday?

3)I also rented Eagle Eye. It was pretty good, nothing spectacular though. And I kinda figured out the plot way ahead of time.

4)4th of July Weekend )

5) I finally bought a Cobra Starship cd. I also found a Rorschach tee at Wal-mart. (Thanks for the tip, DPAK)

How were your holidays?
1) Watched a couple movies over the weekend. Gran Torino was excellent. Even if I did spend the whole movie thinking “Holy shit! Clint Eastwood=Bruce Wayne in a live action BatBey movie The International was decent. I probably would’ve enjoyed it more if I hadn’t been so sleepy when I watched it.

2) Tried the first 3 eps of Wolverine and the X-men(it was at the rental place). It was ok. Not the best revamp I’ve ever seen by far. And Rogue is annoying.

3) Our plans to go to the river this past weekend were shot. My cousin was working, we had a father’s day dinner at her house (while she wasn’t there and I was somewhat bored…except the amusing political convo the grandparents were having. They’re all rather…not fond of Obama), and Dad managed to hurt himself walking out of the court house Thursday. He just somehow managed to pinch a nerve with his spine. He’s just now starting to walk straight again. (He’s rather prone to back injuries after he fell off a second-story roof and landed on a pine root sometime before I was born)
Oh well, I think we’re off to the beach again this weekend.

4) I can now grill ribs!

5) Yesterday evening, Dad came in and told me my beagle was hit by a car. I cried off and on for the rest of the evening. He was my baby. Since I never cry in front of people (except mom) my brother and father were thrown off. My brother was actually nice. And Dad’s trying to make me feel better by trying to get a new puppy (which would make me feel better in almost any situation save this one); I’d rather wait but he said if we’re gonna get another beagle from the same people it’s probably the right time of year to get one. :/
Anyways, distract me flist. Rec some seriously fluffy fic.

6) On the bright side, I tried the first ep of Castle last night. It was awesome.
-Lab tomorrow. :( Yeah, dreading that.

-AIM hasn't been working for me this weekend. Anyone else have this problem? It's probably the school's sucky internet.

-Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is hilarious.

-They are making a Mean Girls 2. WTF?

-I've now realized Kyoya from Ouran is in fact my perfect guy.(hot, smart, sarcastic, good-hearted bastard, rich, wearing sexy glasses, etc). This sucks; I'll never find a real Kyoya.
