Hello! I am having a very productive Saturday (just finished my taxes). So I figured now its time to do an update.

Nate and I went to the Car museum in Mount Dora on Thursday. Its a really small museum, mainly just a private collection. Here are some pics:

This was Nate's favorite, a 1966 SHELBY MUSTANG GT-350

I preferred the 1966 Cobra Roadster.

Here are a couple more shots from the museum.

Thats all for now. March should be fun, Dropkick Murphys, Florida Film Fest preview Party, Mallrats @ the Enzian, and the Shamrock Shakedown. Should make for a fun month.

Guess who won a spot on the guest list for the Florida Film Festival Preview Party?

I did! I did!


The fact that I spend too much time on facebook and my brain is full of too much useless trivia has finally paid off.

I didn't post for over a month, and now I'm doing my third post in a week. Guess I'm catching up.

On Sunday, Nate and I, along with my mom and her friend Arthur, went to the Orlando Science Center. Besides just the regular exhibits, there were also exhibits on the Science of Toys and Frogs. And we saw a Dolphin movie on the CineDome. A fun time was had by all. Here are some pics.
THis is Nate and I in the human Kaleidoscope.

A guest of the Frog exhibit.

Me, Mom, & Arthur

Hubby played with Dominoes.

Nate thought it real funny that one of the dinosaurs was named "Sandy the Bonehead"

Saturday Night, I went with mom to the Planetarium for STAR TALK LIVE. It was a funny show. Kind of Myth Busters meets Planetarium with a little Improv Comedy thrown in. Mom took her Alpha costume to promote her Dr Who club.

thats all for now. probably for awhile. We don't have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day, as I'm working Phantom loadout this weekend. We'll probably celebrate the following weekend. I am looking foward to seeing "The Lightening Thief" movie this weekend. I've read all the Percy Jackson books (yes, I'm a nerd).

If last weekend was my "Florida cracker" weekend (Civil war re-enactment, monster trucks, etc.), then this weekend's theme is GEEKY. This morning mom and I went downtown for SAK Theater's Yard Sale. To raise money to move into their new venue, the comedy theater was selling costumes, props, even some lighting equipment. Mom scored a bunch of wig heads and a Star Trek game for only $5.
After SAK we went over to the History Museum. There was a big outdoor party to celebrate the opening of the Sci-Fi costumes exhibit. I'm not going to the exhibit until next weekend (FREE for ARTSFEST on Sat), but we did check out all of the outdoor stuff.
Here are some pics:
This is me with DEADPOOL

Full Size Darth Vader made entirely out of LEGOs

Slave Leia and Darth Maul

Spiderman, Deadpool, Batman, & Poison Ivy (never in comics would you ever see these 4 together....heros & villians, MARVEL & DC)

KITT (the Knight Rider car)

Doc Brown and Marty McFly in the Delorean.

Also saw a Captain Jack Sparrow, Iron Man, Elphaeba, some Ghostbusters and the Mad Hatter while I was there.

Tonight, I'm going to STAR TALK at the Planetarium. Tomorrow, we will be going to the Science Center for ARTSFEST.
Gettin' our GEEK on.

Wow, I haven't posted in a month. Sorry folks.

Heres a brief summary of January.
Work has been fairly busy. The month started with the Lady Gaga concert, then Phantom came to town. Phantom is huge so it took a long time to get that show up and running. Hubby is busy coaching, he's teaching more classes now than he did in the fall. We have had some free time though. Saw KNOCKDOWN DRAGOUT (Hubby's favorite local band) put on a great show. We bought a Wii. Hubby is addicted to Lego Star Wars, while I am doing the EA Active 30day Challenge in an attempt to lose weight. We also saw a hockey game. UCF vs. USF. My hometown team versus my alma mater. No idea who to root for. But UCF won 10-1.
For hubby's christmas gift, I got tickets to MONSTER JAM. I had never been to Monster trucks before, it was alot of fun. We're already talking about going next year.
And now for some pics, on Sunday we went to Mount Dora for a Civil War re-enactment. It was really interesting. Neither of us had ever been to something like that. In the battle we saw, the South won. Here are some pics.

Thats all for now.
