Potter Mania!!

Here's what everyone needs to start getting excited about right now: Harry Potter 4!! Mom, Kyle, and I are going opening night tomorrow night, which should be crazy-fun! Waiting in line at the release of a big movie (with people you like) is like waiting in line for a sweet roller coaster, only better, because you've got food and it's not 100 degrees! Also, everyone around you is just as pumped about the movie as you are, or they wouldn't be there, so the excitement is electric! By the time you get into the theater, it doesn't really matter if the movie lives up the hype. However, I think HP4 will, b/c this is definitely the best book of the series. By the by, does anyone else think Daniel Radcliffe looks like a brunette David Bowie in this picture? It's at the NYC premiere.

How does Corporate Communications Consultant sound (For a career.) (For me.)? Jay's corporate-America brother Brian called me out of the blue the other day after reading my blog to give me a super-sweet career idea. He said I should put together a corporate communications portfolio of newsletters, brochures, and press releases to market myself as a a way to a way to outsource internal and external public relations. Does that sound right, Brian? Anyhoo, I interviewed at Gear UP at SOSU the other day for a position as Information Technology Coordinator, which is basically digital and print PR and communications. If I get that, I think that would be an excellent way to get some experience for having my own business, while maybe starting slow on the side, getting InDesign-certified and some small clients.

I cannot BELIEVE how close Christmas is!! Every time I go to Wal-Mart (about six times a week), I see that sign that says how many Saturdays are left until Christmas, which is starting to give me this sick, panicky feeling. I'm thinking online shopping will be the way to go this year. Jay's family will be happy no matter what I do. Before we got married, they never knew whether they'd receive something from Jay or not; sometimes he'd give his mom something like a bag of frozen shrimp from Sam's, or his brother a random camera case...so just getting what I call a real gift from Jay (sort of) is probably okay with them.

However, I'm verrry excited about the holiday season because of all the family!! Yay for togetherness! I'm glad we're not one of those families with cliques and conflicts; it's all fun when the Pannells get together! (Well most of the time anyway...)
