Oscar Night 2009

Here are a couple of pictures from Oscar Night before we left for the big event. Teresa has more pictures on her cell phone from when we were on the red carpet that I will try to get from her and post. Overall we had a great time and Kate Winslet won an oscar! The only downside was there was a heckler who sat behind us saying very nasty things. Who goes to an Oscar party to heckle is my question?

Our New Phones

Matthew and I were fed up with the crappy Razor cell phones we purchased over three years ago. The batteries died after a five minute phone call and hung up on whoever you were talking to. In addition the minutes we had were not sufficient for the amount of talking my sister and I do. So...after weeks of searching and trying to find the best plan, we went to T-Mobile last night and signed up. We each got a Dash, seen below:

We each have 5 people which we can talk unlimited too. In addition we have 700 minutes to split amongst everyone else. We also have text messaging! The phones are quite impressive and I see why my sister loves her Blackberry so much.

It's amazing how much it changes your life when you get a phone that works and has features you can use!

It's Back!!!

There are only a select few of you (Curtis and Tom) who will care about this news, but Matthew and I are ecstatic!

SCI FI Wire confirmed today that a contract has been signed with CBS/Paramount to reopen the Star Trek The Experience exhibit in Las Vegas on May 8 —starting with at least a new restaurant and retail shop—to coincide with the opening of J.J.

"It is a bit premature to talk about it, but I can confirm that a contract has been signed," Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager of CBS consumer products in New York, told SCI FI Wire exclusively. "I do not have any further comment." Las Vegas city public information officer Jace Radke confirmed to SCI FI Wire that Star Trek The Experience, which closed at its home at the Las Vegas Hilton, will move downtown to the Neonopolis Center. "This is going to be a major part of the downtown redevelopment we have been working on, and the city department of business de…

It's Time to Come Clean...

I honestly had no idea that almost a month had gone by since my last post. How time flies when you aren't having fun. sister dropped by yesterday to show me the new dress that she purchased for our Oscar Night Extravaganza and she confessed that she accidentally told someone something that she didn't realize was a secret (or at least something that I hadn't openly shared with anyone). She felt really bad, but I assured her that it is about time I just come out with it. So here it is...

I lost my scholarship after just one semester.

Hmmm...that didn't feel as good as I expected it to.

In my defense I didn't realize that I lost it until about three weeks ago. Due to some miscommunications between myself and the U of A, I was under the impression that everything was fine, but apparently it was not. I now have student debt just like 90% of the rest of the people who go there, but I'll be honest, it has been a most uncomfortable and disgruntling three weeks…
