Hey, guess what?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant.

Yup. We told our families this weekend, so it's official. I mean, it was official before, but now...

Anyway, yeah. I'm going to start a new blog that will be all pregnancy all the time, so if you really don't give a shit about my gestation (and who can blame you?), you don't have to think about it.

But if you do indeed care, check it out. There should be a link to your right in the near future.

Back in the saddle again.

Sasha: This scene will take place at an apartment swimming pool.

Ellie: You know, like in Lady In The Water...

Nathaniel: So, a stupid, pointless swimming pool?

Started rehearsal on Monday. I'm loving it, even though I may be getting too damn old to be up so late... Oh, God. That statement just aged me another 10 years right there.

I adore everyone and I'm looking forward to this process - and I'll keep y'all updated so you can come see the show!

I'm not satisfied if I don't get my Buddah's Delight.

I don't care what anyone says, the Music and Lyrics soundtrack (yes, the one where Hugh Grant sings) is totally fucking awesome and I love it.

POP! Goes My Heart is brilliant.


And Entering Bootytown? Musical GENIUS.

Happy new year and shit.

Hey. Happy 2008. I spent New Year's Eve sick. I watched the Simpsons, then 10 minutes of Family Guy, and was fast asleep on the couch at 10:40. Yet another lame NYE. It's okay. I'm used to it.

Movie Review: Juno

Pretty darn cute altogether.

This movie got a lot of press in my town because the writer (Diablo Cody) is originally from Mpls. And quite honestly, I was pretty annoyed by her after seeing articles in every city magazine and newspaper I've read (not to mention the national mags I read).

However, I still wanted to see the movie, so last night I did.

Once you get through the obnoxiously overwritten first 20 minutes, Juno turns into a really sweet, well-done little film. Ellen Page is charming, Michael Cera very nearly steals several scenes, and Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons as Juno's bewildered parents? Fantastic. Very Minnesotan without being MinneSOHtan.

I don't know where the fast-paced totally unreal dialogue finally gave way to understated charming REAL conversations, but I was relieved. I was hoping I hadn't dragged my single straight male friend to a girly poppy teen pregnancy movie.

I give it 4 and 1/4 stars out of five. It lost one quarter of a star for the first 20 minutes, and another half a star for the crappy ass soundtrack.
