Super Media Blitz

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a Superman media blitz for '06! The Man of Steel is on the cover of everything this week.

Back in N.Y.C.

Or at least I will be in about six hours.

I head down today for a whopping eight day stretch with my friend Greg. I'll going to be in New York until January 3rd. That's a long time...

Christmas was pretty good. Lots of food and family in Rutland. Nothing very note-worthy -- just Christmas. I did see Rumor Has It last night. I thought about writing up a review, but I decided not to waste any more time on the film. Needless to say, it wasn't very good -- almost Bewitched bad -- and you should not waste any money on it, no matter how much you love Jenn Aniston and her big, alien eyes.

So I'm both excited and nervous about this jaunt to the Big Apple. This is my first trip down since my ill-fated visit back in May. Last time there, I ended up doing very little because I fell ill. I am no fun when I am feverish. Here's to good health.

This is the first time I've taken the five-hour train ride to the city since I got trapped in one for nearly twenty-four hours, during Hurricane Phillip back in 1999. Today it's raining. Fingers are crossed.

And this is the first time I've been to New York since Duncan and I broke up during his five-week summer stay there. Not that I'm bitter. It's just that the city does have something else associated with now, for it this trip and probably all others from here on out.

Regardless of bad memories, I'm looking forward to this trip. Not sure what blogging will be like while I'm away. But New Yorkers out there, feel free to say hello. Perhaps I'll see you around.

Christmas Wrapping

This time of year I'm always reminded of two things (among others):

1.) I really, really, really suck at wrapping presents. I mean, seriously, I'm wrap-tarded. I used to love watching my mom wrap when I was a kid -- she was so elegant, creative. She cut like an exacto knife. She folded like origami. She could curl ribbons and tie bows to make Martha Stewart jealous. But her son? He missed that gene. I may be gay, but I can't even cut straight. (But if you laugh at me, I will cut you.)

2.) Ever since I was five, I've wanted to be a Jew living in Canada. I even wrote/drew a picture book about it in elementary school. I don't know why, but I always wanted to convert and then renounce my U.S. citizenship. Thus far I've done neither, so instead I just crush on Canadians (my first-ever boy crush, Andrew) and date half-Jews (Duncan).

Happy Holidays.

The Gift of Music

468x60 GC animiated
Tis the season to be blog-whore-y...

*ahem* If you're looking for a last minute holiday gift, might I suggest a gift certificate to the iTunes Music Store? It's quick and easy to buy one, and its a great gift in this post-iPod world of ours. You can email, print, or mail your gift, ranging from anything between $10 - $200, and then the receiver can use it to buy and download anything they'd like from the online store. Pretty sweet.

I post this mostly because I'm a member of a link-affiliate program, like many other bloggers, and I'll get a small commission for whatever you buy through the above link. I also totally dig the iTMS and I'll be giving away more than a couple gift cards from there myself this season.

And if you feel so inclined (and seriously, friends and strangers, you probably shouldn't), iTMS gift certs are at the top of my own Christmas list this year.
