When It Rains, It Pours

Well, let me tell you: San Diego is not meant for rain. Its been absolutely nuts here, there was even a tornado warning! I actually watched a chimney fly right off someone's roof! It was like being with Dorothy in Kansas.

And today our power went out... right in the middle of watching Ocean's 13. (Did I mention how much I love Brad Pitt? Clooney too) So I had to make due with reading, not a bad alternative though I might add. Then I went to the gym, and boy were there a TON of people there. It must be the thing to do in bad weather, go figure...

Movie Reviews

So here is a run down of my day: Woke up, got all ready to go to the gym, couldn't find my gym pass, so subsequently thoroughly cleaned my room, FINALLY went to the gym, came home and lounged til midnight. VERY productive if you ask me :)

During those lounging hours, I watched two amazing movies: Hurt Locker && Fight Club.

 Hurt Locker is about a bomb squad in Afghanistan and it is so riveting and suspenseful and uber realistic. I really, truly recommend it! Its nominated for an academy award too, I think. And, James Cameron's (director of Avatar) ex wife directed it... I watched an interview about the movie and it was shown to the troops in the Middle East and they said that it was the most realistic movie that's been made about the war.

Then I watched the all classic Fight Club for my first time! And I absolutely fell in L-O-V-E. I had nooo idea that Brad Pitt was the alternate personality... he can be mine any day. God, that was a great movie.

Oh, I saw the preview for Valentine's Day, and I cannot wait to see it. It has 9 out of 10 of my favorite Hollywood hotties. So, February 12th here I come. <3

What is Victoria's Secret?

I'm sure everyone has wondered, but who the hell is this Victoria? I have decided that VS is my all time favorite store, bar none. It has everything anyone could ever need, including laundry detergent and fabric softener! C'mon people! ...this cannot be beat. (:

I tried my herbs today! God, they are DEE.GUST.ING. But hopefully they shall help. I actually almost feel them helping because I can taste them, isn't that weird? Don't worry, I'll be
ar through it because I have faith in this ayurveda!

Dia 3

Woke up early AGAIN today. I had to be at work at 5:45! Can you believe that? Time flowed slower than frozen molasses and dealing with gym members in the morning is superrr fun. <-- extreme sarcasm. I failed to excercise too, but I consider standing for 6 hours sufficiently active. ;) Ate well too! Look at me, two days in a row! I think that deserves a cookie....
Oh, I also ordered some ayurvedic herbs to take for some skin probs I've been having. I hope they work.
Does anyone know anything about ayurveda?

Home is where the heart is

Well I arrived in sunny San Diego yesterday afternoon. I don't know whether to refer to SD as home or back in the 'ville. But I arrived safely "home" nonetheless.
Thus far, my resolution has failed entirely, as this is only my second post since I started blogging. In my defense though, I had no wi-fi to hook up my laptop to... and I might've been too lazy to use our dinosaur desktop computer inside my mom's house. I had a great time up in Nor Cal and really enjoyed seeing my friends and family. You don't realize how much you miss people until you're around them. I really wish my dad lived down here too, is it bad that I missed him more than my mom?
Anyways, back to the cliched resolution... I actually excercised today, at 6 freaking AM too! But then I went back to bed and passed the f*** out :) (on my brand new memory foam mattress pad, might I add) And I ate very well today, my diet was filled with fruits and veggies. So A+ for Kelli. -minus the cookie and milk I had but it's a vast improvement! Well that's all for now folks, write tomorrow if I remember!

Day 1

January 4th, midnight.
I am starting my first blog ever, and I don't really know what to write- scratch that- blog about.
I'm think I'll start a blog as a belated New Year's Resolution. I'm going to blog everyday and my goal is to go to the gym and eat healthier... or try to!
Welp, thanks Shelbs for teaching me to blog.
Signed, new blogger Kelli
P.S. I wish the blog site had a countdown thing like in Julie&Julia
