I'm super competitive. I know this, I'm upfront about it and I really try to be a good sport and a gracious loser but don't be surprised if I cackle happily at my win.
That's all for today… perhaps the next post will be more inspired and entertaining.

After seeing promos for the new X-files movie I remembered that I used to love that show and there are also tons of episodes I haven't seen so we've started making our way through. We just started season 2 and there are a few things that have become apparant.
- X-files is old… just check out Scully's hair and shoulder pads for verification
- The writing wasn't actually that great in the beginning, explains why it got such poor rating in the earlier seasons
- Some episodes are down right silly
- Some episodes are still really creepy
- TV has come a long way in the last 15 years
- It's a show that, 15 years later still keeps us hooked

I read many blogs daily and in the last week there have been 6 different mentions of him… I just don't get it.

Wishing I was there right now.

This whole working thing is not so fun after a week off
Right Now I'd rather be:
- Reading a book – I started and finished 5 while we were there
- Swimming in the lake – the water is freezing but the heat outside makes it bearable
- Eating something yummy – we stuck to two meals a day with snacks in between
- Playing Carcassonne – all 5 expansions at once was highly successful
I'm already looking forward to next year
Pictures to follow

The apartment is clean, the food is prepared, all that's left to do is pack. We plan on sleeping in, reading, playing games, eating yummy foods and lots of swimming. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.
As a final post I leave you with these thoughts
Things I'll Never Say
Crave Cupcake? No thanks, I'll pass
Oh look, a spider, let's let it wander around for a while
A marathon, that's a great idea, I'm in!
I had a huge dinner last night and I'm still full today
Let's go to a Sum 41 concert
I think I'll ask to speak in Church
Can we please watch National Treasure, or the Mummy
We have to play softball again? But I hate softball
I hate the lake and especially swimming
I hope you have a great week!

I've hinted at it in the past with my Playlist.com addition but I thought I'd come out of the closet and make it well know.
I have a real weakness for really cheesy girl pop.
This isn't a blind love, it has its limits and does not extend to group like Girlicious or Miley Cyrus, I'm not that out of control and I cling to a hope that maybe the two I love the most aren't as bad as I think. These girls can actually sing, I've heard clips of them performing live and their sound doesn't come from recording genius but from actual talent.
As a tribute I've created a brand new playlist, all full of these little underrated gems. You never know, you just may hear something you like.

The day starts with a parade at 11:00 (best start time ever) and then there's beef on a bun for dinner. We skipped it as we were still on South Beach. There's also a program in the park and then in the evening there are fireworks. They close the weekend with a massive bonfire and an outdoor dance that is largely attended by high school students.
I think Brad was most impressed with the fireworks. You sit at one end of the football field and they set them off at the other so you're super close. As a result each firework is huge and louder than you've ever heard before. It makes for a unique experience.
