Getting Better?

Tonight, when I was going out (actually before I had even said anything) my mother informed me that I couldn't use the car because she was going out shopping. My father made a comment about going out again and my lovely sister Chris mentioned that it was summer vacation, so it was the end of his complaint. Although mom didn't actually go shopping, I decided to get a ride anyway, and I think that might be better for them. In about a month, ma soeur Fayanne is getting a new car and I'll get her old one, so if they don't like me taking the car, it might be better.

Tonight, we started with dinner at Portillo's/Barnelli's in Vernon Hills. After, we stopped by Blockbuster and rented Excess Baggage which we watched at Lewis's new house. At 11, curfew people left, and he, Zoe and I watched the beginning of Almost Famous, one of the best movies of all time. Tomorrow, I'm planning on buying it and the Dogma Special Edition on DVD. I might get a CD too. I really want Guster, 3 Doors Down and Samantha Mumba. I don't know what I'll get though. I don't want to spend too much money. I also want Five for Fighting and Dexter Freebish (since I'm seeing Dexter Freebish in concert, I should buy that one, but what are mp3s for except to keep my appetite wet until I work up money for the actual CD?).

Can I tell you how much I love Jason Lee? He played Brodie in Mallrats and is in almost every Kevin Smith film (Azreal in Dogma) and he's also the lead singer of Stillwater in Almost Famous. (I don't remember his character name right now.) He's not overly hot, good looking yes, but not hot (definitely a nice ass), but he's just a really great actor and gets the coolest roles ever. He's totally awesome. I need the Dogma DVD so bad. I own it on video, but that's so passe.

Well, I'm going to go do some more movie searching on Amazon.com. I need to know what to buy tomorrow. Hmmm...Best Buy or Target? I wonder which would be cheaper. I also need a light bulb. We have nothing between a 40 and 100 watt in the entire house, and mommy doesn't like me having a 100 watt bulb in my desk lamp, since it's supposed to only take a 60. Her fault for not having a better selection of bulbs. Hell, they are only about a quarter each. Oh well, night night for now!

*Adam's Song - Blink 182
*Barrel of a Gun - Guster
*You Don't Know What Love Is - Jessica Simpson (I swear, it's only one of two songs of hers I like. I'm not a fan.)
*Last Resort - Papa Roach
*Bloody Mary - Five for Fighting
*Forever December - Tabitha's Secret
*Gotta Tell You - Samantha Mumba
*Unravel - Weezer

(By the way, the LiveJournal spell check should really recognize DVD and CDs, it's really annoying that it doesn't.)

    okay okay

I love to shop!

If only I had more money...oh well. Yeah, so what little money I have is going to be wasted tonight. I've decided to skip going out with friends (I don't think we had anything planned yet anyways). This way it will make daddy happy (probably not, but whatever, it gives me leverage) and Mommy pays for dinner. My list of stuff to buy:

*Dogma Special Edition DVD
*Almost Famous DVD
*Almost Famous Soundtrack
*Chasing Amy DVD
*Guster CD - Lost and Gone Forever

--There's also a bunch of stuff I might wait on buying, unless I get overly compulsive (which is entirely possible)--

~Empire Records DVD
~Clerks DVD
~Remember the Titans DVD and Soundtrack
~Truth About Cats and Dogs DVD
~Whatever else is in the aisles of Best Buy that is too tempting to pass up.

I'm going to be so broke, but happy. I could watch the Almost Famous Tiny Dancer/Bus Scene 300 times and not get sick of it. It's such a great movie. Kate Hudson and Francis McDermott both deserved the Oscar's for their roles. Incredible film.

Gotta go for now, I'm sure I'll check back later after my shopping spree. Kuzcotopia, I'm so happy! (random Emperor's New Groove quote, I apologize.)
