Universal Studios (4/13/06)

Recently, I went to Universal Studios with my niece and her dad (since she was on Spring Break from school). Can I just say one thing? It has been unimaginable how admission prices have become these days. At the beginning of the day, I had about $200 in my pocket. Here’s how the money broke down: $17 for preferred parking (I didn’t want to take a tram to the entrance), $59 just to get into the park, $5.40 for a Dodger dog (not even ballpark quality), $35 for souvenir baseball caps for my niece & me, $17.40 for an Italian lunch (btw, I ordered lasagna AND their idea of lasagna was cheese ravioli with pasta sauce poured over it), $8 for a Universal Studios shot glass, and another $10 for a bacon, Angus cheeseburger meal. So, that’s about $150 alone!!! I think there’s about a few things here that were just a bit overpriced (like the Italian lunch), but I would say it worth the trip. I did pay for the “buy one admission, get the rest of the year” thing. Then again, who knows if I would go there again. Anyway, from the pictures attached, I had lots of fun! :)

You Know You Are Living in 2006 WHEN...

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.
6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.
7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.
8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.
11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )
12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.
13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
14. You are too busy to notice there was no # 9 on this list.
15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

Hello Out There?!?

All right, my friends... don't worry... I'm still alive & breathing! :) I've been busy lately with work & school that writing a blog hasn't been a real priority. Spring Break is this week at school. So, I don't necessarily have to 'worry' about studying for my Business Law exam coming up. I really can't say that I have much of a Spring Break anyway. Work is there. Good grief is it there! I have to say that I do enjoy my job, but there are just days where I just want to say screw it. :( Oh, well...
