After all my strength is gone, In you I can be strong..I look to you

two things I love.

TV and Movies.

Everyone knows this.

And this past week or so, I got to a complete nerd and celebrate both of them.

Jim and Pam's wedding on the office, was a very exciting event and thus Emily and I decided to be complete nerds and have a little "wedding party" of our own.

Mostly it was a good excuse to have cake and sparkling cider, plus we knew it would be a funny blog post later.

So I made a little wedding cake, emily picked up the mixed nuts and sparkling cider, and we sat down to watch the funniest office episode ever.

We are ridiculous, I know, but it was so fun and so silly.

Then last Saturday, after being trapped inside with sickness, Q and I were both well enough to get out for a bit. She hung out with Beth and her family and I headed to Seattle with Emily and Mindi to see one of my favorite directors, Kevin Smith do a Q&A at benaroya Hall.

I have been super stoked about this since I got the tickets, and was just plain giddy when we arrived and saw how close we would be to someone I find so awesome.

I have been a fan of his work since the original "Clerks" and have seen all of his movies (even jersey Girl-which I actually thought was kind of cute), and download his SModcast every week.

And to sit for 3 1/2 hours listening to him speak about movies, life, comics, his wife, hockey, his weight, and anything else someone would ask or he would think of was a highlight of my life.

It was hilarious, inspiring, disgusting, thought-provoking, and purely enjoyable.

I'm not gonna lie, when you said it was gonna be three hours long, I was like. . . this might be kinda rough, but I couldn't believe how fast it went by, I seriously loved it! It has a definite place in my top 5 favorite things I've done with you!
