Matt and I watched the movie Once about a couple of months ago and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. It is a lovely little independent movie that deals with music, love and inspiration and was really beautifully shot. It is about meeting that person that inspires you to do more. This movie has a lot of music but is more than a musical. Confusing, right? What I mean by that is that the two main characters are musicians so we get to hear a lot of thier music but it's not a traditional musical where we hear the characters sing responses to each other which can get annoying. The way the music appears in this movie is really natural.

Speaking of the music in this movie, I have to say I loved it. About three weeks ago, Matt bought me the soundrack and I can't get enough of it. I have to admit, I'm a little obsessed with the soundtrack right now. It has beautiful songs such as the Oscar winning "Falling Slowly", which I must say, it was awesome to see them win. (Gotta love an Irish lad who says "Tanks!". I know he wasn't going for a joke there but it still made me laugh.) That isn't the only great song on the CD. The whole soundrack is a keeper. Some of my other favorites are "Lies", "If You Want Me", "Leave", "Say It To Me Now" and my personal favorite "You Must Have Fallen From the Sky".

On April 10th, Thursday's Are Right Again.

I just saw this promo of the upcoming season and had to post it. I know what you're thinking, "Ugh, more Office stuff". It's my blog so suck it.

This is all just footage of their first days back filming and it makes me extremely happy inside to know they are back filming the show. Also, I just read a spoiler that made me giddy beyond belief. It has nothing to do with Jim and Pam or anything like that but it's something that makes this basketball girl's heart very happy. (Shannon, I know you are just getting into The Office this season and you haven't seen the "Basketball" episode from season one, which you really need to watch because it's funny, but this casting side for an upcoming episode that I just read is right up our alley.)

Learning to Walk

So, Matt's been really into hiking the past couple of years and he's decided that he wants to take the dogs with him. He is scared that the rugged terrain will cut their little paws so he researched doggie shoes (yes, this shiz really exists) and he finally found some he liked and he thought would work well with hiking. This is what the shoes look like:
In theory, once you put them on your buddy, the dog should look as happy as this one:
In reality, the shoes bug the crap out of your dog and they can barely walk in them. I guess it takes some time for them to get used to the shoes. The first time Matt put the shoes on Daisy, I was at work, so Matt recorded it for me so I could see it when I got home. Now, I think I should say that I don't want to put them on her anymore because you can tell she doesn't like them, but I am posting the video because it was quite funny. It reminds me of those videos on the Discovery Channel that show newborn giraffes and cows learning how to walk. Enjoy!
