Sigh, you win Paul . . .

So . . . pretty much since we started dating, Paul has been going on and on about how good the show Arrested Development is. I usually just rolled my eyes at him since we tend to have different taste in music, movies and t.v. shows and so what he thinks is "really good" isn't usually all that impressive to me but, I have to hand it to him, he got it right this time. I started watching it on DVD and within 48 hours I had watched all 3 seasons. Jason Bateman might be my new favorite actor. I just watched Horrible Bosses (and LOVED it by the way!!) and the whole time I was thinking about how much I can't wait to see the new Arrested development movie.

Speaking of Horrible Bosses it turns out I've also fallen head over heels in love with Charlie Day. And I'm really starting to warm up to It's always Sunny In Philadelphia, another show that Paul loves and that I wasn't too impressed with at first. See my problem is that I really REALLY hate stupid people. And the gang that works at Paddy's Pub is probably the biggest group of dumbasses I've ever seen on t.v. But Charlie is just soooo adorably down on his luck all the time that I can't help but love his character. OH and did I mention that I think he's friggin' adorable looking?

I guess what this has taught me is that Paul doesn't have such bad taste after all. Lol I love you baby!

Thank God for good friends!

Today I went to the corn maze. If you've never been to one, I would recommend it. It's better to go in a group cause then you can split up, cover more ground and scream out "MARCO" "POLO" at each other. They are fun because besides getting to spend an afternoon outside, corn mazes usually have other activities like petting zoos (who doesn't like looking at baby lambs or tiny ponies?) or bale mazes or pyramids to climb on. But the fact is, it isn't so much WHAT you are doing as it is WHO you are doing it with. Today I went with my brother and four of my friends, two of which I would consider my best friends, and we had a fantastic time.

This being thanksgiving weekend I have been thinking a bit about what I am thankful for this year and I have to say that despite the stress and uncertainty, I still had a hundred things to be grateful for. But what I was really thinking about was the friends that I have in my life.

I know that I have many friends that I just never get to see much of anymore. People who were once very close to me and now I barely talk to. If you are reading this right now, I want you to know that you are still important to me. I hope that things are going well. It makes me sad even though it's inevitable, people change, they have school and work and families that begin to take a lot more time and energy.

I also know that I have a core group of friends. People who I know will always be there for me. If I've had a tough day, if my boyfriend is driving me nuts, or if I just need a pick me up. I know that I have friends who would make the time to meet with me, or chat with me to give me advice or a shoulder to lean on. And I know, they know, they can count on me for the same.

This weekend, when you are thinking how thankful you are for a big turkey dinner (especially if you didnt have to cook it), for your family and for your job, don't forget to be thankful for your friends and take a moment to send them a message to let them know you appreaciate them.
