Thursday Night Randomness

On one of the flights back yesterday (thankfully, I was upgraded to first-class for this 3.5 hour leg), I watched the movie "The Break-Up." You know, that movie with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. It's been advertised as a comedy, but I really didn't see much humor in it. In fact, the film left me feeling angry. The flick is filled with anger, yelling and tension while truly demonstrating how men and women communicate, or not communicate. That we women expect men to read our minds and when we say something, we really mean the opposite. And that men in their own way, really do appreciate their mate, but just can't convey that message properly. It didn't have the sugary sweet romantic ending, it had a realistic ending. Enough about that...

Thailand is a place I'd like to visit someday. A few years ago I traveled to Cuba with a group called Cross Cultural Solutions and as any good company does, they keep me on their email distribution list. Today I received one about volunteering in Thailand for two weeks. I'd LOVE to go and spend two weeks immersed in the culture, but right now, I don't think it's possible. I'm suppose to make a trip to Italy (which, I'm still trying to get excited about). But it got me wondering, through fundraising, could I raise $3,000 for that trip the end of 2007? I'll have to mull this over.

Costume crisis solved for tomorrow night. Since it's the Pagan Society with the Humane Society, I'm going as a pagan leapordess; just need to figure out the whole tail thing ;)

Oh! And if you haven't read my recent writing, be sure to check it out here.
