Across the Universe

I admit, I am not a big Beatles fan. However, I found Across the Universe brilliant! I love the renditions of Beatles songs throughout the film and how the songs tell the story. It is also very visual. I really want the deluxe CD and the BluRay. Fantastic and worth seeing!

Oh yeah…

And one other somewhat “big news”. Today I took the two tests necessary to become A+ certified and passed! That’s right, I am now A+ certified. We can all rejoice now… *yay…*

I may also be getting Security+ certified, but we’ll see.

Big News!

Herr accepted a job yesterday! He will be working freelance teaching English at Berlitz. He needs to attend two weeks of training in June before he can start teaching, so he doesn’t really start for a while yet. Herr has frequently spoke about a desire to teach, so now is his chance!

We should be getting our furniture in the next week or two as well. I have spent several thousand dollars on furniture I have yet to see… scary, I know. So, we will have a couch, two new chairs, and a floor lamp for the living room, and bookshelves for our library. I can’t wait to have the library put together (all the books are in piles on the floor…).

And for the last big piece of news: we have adopted two English cocker spaniels, Tommy (male) and Rubia (female). We are not certain if the names will stay. We are rescuing them from Spain, where virtually no laws exist to protect pets from abuse or neglect. They are both approximately one year old and get along. From what we know, they should be flown to Frankfurt next Wednesday… we need to confirm the flight still. Tomorrow will be a doggy shopping trip. 😛

Meet Rubia and Tommy!

If this were to ever come into the market, I would be one of the first to buy it:

I want I want!! Methanol fuel cells supposedly save about 50% power and are cheaper to make. Mmmm… me like pretty blue bubbly liquid…

Oh, and the EcoGeek Web site is pretty hot, check it out sometime!
