The Value of Quality

I had the chance to ride home from a softball game (we won, by the way) with a really good friend of mine.  I haven't really had a chance to just sit and chat with her one on one any time in the recent past, and it was nice to just talk about whatever.  Needless to say, the question of how each other's dating life is going came up.  I'm not going to pretend that the subject doesn't come up with anyone else I talk to as well, but the difference with talking to her about it was that I felt completely comfortable being open about my thoughts and problems while talking with her. Nothing about my love life, or lack thereof, got solved through talking about it, but just to know that I have a quality friend in her, was awesome to me.  It's something that I value a lot! Fortunately, I have a handful more of this type of people in my life, and I definitely count myself blessed because of it.

I just watched the movie Leap Year (2010), from SpyGlass Entertainment, at the suggestion of a very good friend.  Not worth the time unless you want a typical cheesy movie with the same cliche plot. However, I was disappointed for two main reasons that were unrelated to the plot itself:

1) Amy Adams, I discovered, is not a very good actress...or at least, she was not in this movie.  That really surprised me after having seen her in Enchanted.  I was blown away at how perfectly she had played her role in Enchanted, but maybe playing innocent princess is just her forte. 

2) I only watched the movie because this good friend of mine, who happens to be an ex-girlfriend, told me that the main male character reminded her of me; mainly in the things that I would do.  I was a little disappointed to see that a) he was not really good looking, and b) I consider myself to be a whole lot funnier than this guy was. Apparently I may not be quite the crack up that I find myself to be. :D Oh well, such is life.

Once upon a time I sat down to work on my final project that is not started but is due on Thursday. However, the boredom and desire to procrastinate was too much. I could not continue any further. To my delight I happened to spot the name "Hannah Gibby" on my gchat list, and although she had the busy sign on her status, I knew that it did not apply to me. Thus I chatted her to ask her the wisdom in her ways of blogging. She told me that it was her desperation and willingness to flaunt that made her successful in the blog sphere. I thought to myself, desperate....I can do desperate...thanks for the inspiration Hannah! You've inspired me to be desperate! :D
