 OK, I want to get a handheld system and can't really decide between Nintendo DS and Sony PSP (I think I spelled those right).  The stylus thingie scares me -- I have a tendency to lose small objects.  The PSP seems like more than I need (watch videos, use it as a phone, teleport, ...) but it's not that much more than the DS.  Should I just spend the extra for the PSP?  Is it worth it?  Or should I hope for the best with the stylus and support good ol' Nintendo (esp with the blueray winning out ... grrrr to Sony).  Help!

All right!  Off to said observation!
If anyone is curious about my movie answers, I posted them in the comments.  Geepgal, your answer was correct -- Fievel Goes West was still called an American Tail (there was subtitlage involved).

So, voting is coming up on March 4th.  The only channel that's been showing campaign commercials is Food Network.  Weird, right?  On top of that, they only show one from each candidate and put them back to back.  So, you watch Obama and then Clinton (or vice versa).  Weirdsville!  I'm sure it's some kind of comment on Vermont life, but I can't quite figure it out.  My brain goes into convulsions whenever I try.  Thankfully, there's AB to distract me with yummies and fun facts.  Mmmmm ... Good Eats.

I actually turned down a job today! Feeling a bit light-headed, but proud of my ballsiness. One of the agencies called about direct service positions ("in the trenches" was the phrase used) which is what I did in PA. I did really love it, but now that I have my Masters, I want something "higher-up." I took his name and number, in case I don't hear anything else in the next two weeks or so (there is always working my way up), but I'm really expecting more nibbles.

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Margaritaville"

You are a true party animal, but your style is mild and chill.
Kicking back with a few friends and a few drinks is all you need to be happy.

You certainly don't feel pressured to be a part of any party scene. In fact, you avoid trendier spots.
You've been known to kick loose anywhere and everywhere. All you need is a cooler.

You might also sing: "Gin and Juice," "Love Shack," and "Red Red Wine"

Stay away from people who sing: "Wind Beneath My Wings"

beauty
Sat is supposed to be cleaning day, but A and I were *not* feeling it, so we decided to go shopping instead! Weee! Got multiple forms of storage and hardware to hang pics. When we got home, I got to play "handy woman." Soooo much fun to run around with a hammer/nails and whack the walls! I was on a roll and started putting some of the shelves together too, but soon realized it was after 9pm. Neighbors *might* not appreciate the noise of a crazy lady swinging at random pieces of metal ("this looks right" ... whack/whack/whack ... "hmmm, maybe this is right" ... whack/whack/whack).

With my extra time, I've been cooking outside of my comfort zone this week. Tried out Mahi Mahi (made friends with the lady at the seafood/fish counter) and chickpea burgers. It was fun to just make something new.

I know that 2 of my resumes/applications actually made it to the people hiring for the positions, which is exciting! We'll have to wait and see if anything comes of it.

Mom and sister are coming to visit next week (yeah!!! anyone surprised they are visiting so soon? teehee!) A and I are going futon shopping tonight so they actually have a place to sleep.

The Petsmart in VT does not groom cats (grrrrr) and I'm having a hard time finding anyone else in the area who does. Mabel and I both need haircuts ... the shedding is getting out of control!

I've decided that this week I am doing *nothing* work-seeking related. I'm up to 7 or 8 sound resumes out and am just driving myself crazy waiting to hear back from anyone. I feel better already! :) Picked up some crochet books, needles, and yarn to try once again to teach myself this stuff. It's like trying to learn a skill and a new language. I tried to do two "easy" projects but am not even there yet, so I'm making a scarf out of a fun looking stitch I found in a book (yeah, library!) A's cake come out deee-licious. We cut small squares out of the extra fondant to patch up all of the holes and gaps, but were quite proud of the first attempt. Ooo, and my new wine glasses came today! They are so cool! They are Mikasa's Cheers line and are just beautiful. I broke 2 of the 4 red glasses A had, so I figured I *had* to get them. Yeah for excuses to buy bright, shiny objects!
