Things that make me super happy:
- Being addressed by name at places like Panera, or anywhere I use a credit card ("Thank you, Gail. Have a nice day!")
- I'm spending the night at a Disney resort tomorrow
- I have my film/film class tonight!!!
- My ever-increasing DVD collection
- Doing good deeds (a couple girls were trying to use the vending machine and it wasn't accepting change, so I gave them dollar bills)

Things that make me super irritated:
- Judgmental people ("I don't see why someone has to buy an iPod. They are crap, there are SUCH better mp3 players out there" or "Kids don't need cell phones, it's not like the time school ends is a big secret."

It's not that I necessarily disagreed with her, but she was so elitist that I wanted to whip out my iPod and shove it in my ears. I am elitist to a certain extent, but not like that. I tend to think of myself as being pretty grounded.

It finally happened. My DVDs can no longer all fit in one binder. Well, I had already separated my TV shows, just because of sheer volume. 3 seasons of 6 discs of Alias, 4 seasons of CSI, 4 season of West Wing...it adds up. Then there's Family Guy, Coupling, Nip/Tuck, Lost...just too much.

But yesterday, I had to divide my movies in half. A through K, then L through Z. I did some careful calculations and that was as close to the halfway point. It will make it harder to browse, but it was inevitable.

Statistics
Number of discs: 393
Number of movies/shows: 243
TV show discs: 130
A-K discs: 128
L-Z discs: 136
Oldest film: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Newest film: A Lot Like Love (2005)
Most films by a director: Stephen Spielberg (7)
Runners up: Quentin Tarrantino (4)
Clyde Geronimi (3)
Peter Jackson (3)
Richard Linklater (3)
Mike Nichols (3)
Kevin Smith (3)
Steven Soderbergh (3)

And I'm spent.

You are a big dork, but I love you muchly. I would LOVE your Gardner! It makes sense, now that I think about it, that you'd have it. I don't think I'll highlight it, but I'll probably circle page numbers or underline pieces I'll have to know on tests.

As for the movies: YES!! I don't know...? I can't think of everything you've got. The TV seasons seem like the greatest thing ever to me. So why don't you just give me whatever series you aren't currently interested in? I like all the ones you've got. And you can send along the movies you're currently sick of or whatever. I'm proud of your DVD collection, though I think maybe I should be appalled at the amount of money.

Whew. Big, huh? I'll pay you back, no worries, or you can just put it on my tab. ;) But: make SURE you take off all the price markers because otherwise you could get stuck with some sort of customs tax being like "Oh these are new, eh? Pay for them!" So, just FYI on that. Because neither of us wants to pay extra.

Mwah!
Zoe

p.s. Your somehow hot smoking icon makes me desperately want to design my own! As soon as I have time, I will! And here, I have a lot of time... There's hours during the day here where I do nothing. I'm actually even, a little, looking forward to homework just so I don't putz around online.

Alright, so I just realized that there's a Gardner's Art Through the Ages, Volumes 1 and 2, AND a Gardner's Art Through the Ages: The Western Perspective, Volumes 1 and 2. (There's also Gardner's Art Through the Ages: Non-Western Perspectives, but there's only one volume of that.) The books I have are the "Western Perspective" versions.

Is this what you need?

Okay, wow, that's three times as impressive as I originally thought, dude. What I need is the actual Gardner's Art Through the Ages, plain and simple, Vol II. The 11th edition is good enough; how many changes could they make??

The problem is that the book I have won't have any Eastern art, so you might be better off ordering it through amazon.fr or something.

Sorry!

Gail! This should've been easier! I should have told you before, so this makes it my fault, but still, dud,e I'm taking HISTORY OF WESTERN ART: RENAISSANCE TO THE PRESENT. Thus, I don't mind about the Eastern art being absent. I don't want it there, even, it'll distract me from what I need to know.

Mwah,
Z

Okay! So after class today I'll be heading to FedEx/Kinkos to get it on it's way. Sorry for the delay!!!

Does the Lord of the Rings trilogy count as one or all three for Peter Jackson?

Just kidding.

Have you seen the trailer for the King Kong remake Peter Jackson is doing? It looked totally awesome up until the T-Rex came on the screen and I about jumped out of my chair.

Damn dinosaurs!

I counted them individually...but I only counted Fellowship and Two Towers once, despite the fact that I have them in regular and extended editions.

Total Lord of the Rings discs: 16

Damn you, Peter Jackson!

But maybe he will help you conquer your fear of dinosaurs! What the hell is a dinosaur doing in King Kong anyway? *goes to watch trailer*
