I went to see that Series of Unfortunate Events movie last night with my sis and her friends. The costumes and scenery were awesome. I want Violet's dress! The kids were pretty good. But Jim Carrey as the villain? Come on! He's not even remotely scary or evil-looking! He was too goofy to be evil. They could have picked someone better. I need to read the books. Luckily, my sis is a big fan and has most if not all of the currently published books (she just got #11), so I can borrow them.
Since we're heading to Hawaii soon, we opened presents a few days early. My mom got me this awesome wooden walking stick with an elephant head carved at the top. It's taller than me and magnificent-looking. I also got some other cool stuff. A couple of the gifts made me laugh though. My aunt's family got me some new sheets. They're dark green. I have 2 or 3 sets of dark green sheets already, but that's ok. And my dad got me the exact same book he got me last year, the third in a Tamora Pierce series I haven't read yet. Well, it's the good intentions that count, I guess. And my dad got this gift card from his brother, but it was stuck to this other bag, so he thought it was for him. Inside was a rather femininish fluffy scarf. It turned out to be for my sister (I got a similar one, even though I never wear scarves), but we thought that was pretty funny. He also got this periwinkle sweater and decided that it was for me instead, even though I protested and won't wear something that color. Meh, he should have kept the girly stuff.
It's nice being on the internet on my own computer again. I finally got it working at home, and hopefully once I go back to school, I can get it working there, since I fixed/reinstalled both the wireless and wired ethernet cards and then dealt with this annoying recurring error message about my IP address conflicting with the hardware address. Ha, and I did it all without my dad's help. Though he did help by setting the router to accept my PC.
I just reread the above paragraph. I sound like such a quasi-geek. I say quasi, because I was going on about computer stuff half of you probably don't understand, but I wasn't using the really technical terms. After all, I'm an English nerd. My dad is the computer nerd of the family.
Right. I should go to bed or something. Or just enjoy downloading Naruto so I can catch up and see the latest 20 episodes. And I should have bought a snow shovel with a slightly shorter handle so it will fit nicely in my trunk without kerjiggling things.
