Something Saturdays (8/18/12)

Do you have a name that gets misspelled/mispronounced a lot?
I do.
My name is Kayle. Pronounced Kay-lee (rhymes with Haley).
More frequently than I would care to admit, people refer to me as Kayla (both in the written and spoken word). It's difficult because I understand mistakes happen, and I do have an unusual name (especially the way it's spelled), but I am SO tired of telling people "My name is Kayle, not Kayla" know? And that's not even talking about the various other misspellings and mispronunciations I get (Kyle, Kylie, Kale-for mispronunciations, and countless misspellings: Kaylee, Kayleigh, Caleigh, Kayly, Kayley, Kailee, Kali, Kaly...etc etc etc). Sorry about this rant, I just needed to vent a bit. You guys are great, I love you :).

In other news: I was nominated for the "Very Inspiring Blogger Award" by Free Spirit Eater! Thanks so much Kym!! You guys should go over and visit the gorgeous site and oogle over all the delicious food! Since I've been awarded this before, I won't do the nomination-y things, but I'll give you the 7 Facts about Me:
  1. I used to hyperventilate a lot when I got upset, so I'm now in the habit of taking long, slow, deep breaths when I start to get extra emotional. I sound like I'm in labor.
  2. My grandparents have an inside joke about the fact that I always call them when I'm walking home from the grocery store (which is once a week): what can I say? I like to talk to people on the walk!
  3. One of my favorite things Michael ever gave me was a rose he made out of aluminum cans and some wire and paint. So beautiful.
  4. I'm addicted to Say Yes to the Dress on TLC. 
  5. Michael's mom was one of my favorite teachers in high school, we both joke and say we loved each other before Michael and I did.
  6. I love big earrings. Love them. But, I rarely get to wear them lately because of work, etc. so now my ears have become wimps and get sore when I wear them.
  7. I love makeup. I'm awesome at it. It's true. My friends have always come to me to do theirs--I'm not a fan of wearing too much, just enhancing your natural beauty :).

Movies/TV Talk
NOOOOO! We finished Arrested Development!!! Ahhhh!!!

On the bright side, fall premieres are comin' up-woohoo!

Michael finally watched The Hunger Games with me. He did not like it as much as I did. He said the movie seemed like it just rushed through parts (and had some choppy editing moments therein), and spent way too much time on inconsequential things (ie showing disorientation), and that the movie wouldn't make sense if you hadn't read the books. He just said he felt it was a poorly done movie. I was just so happy that they managed to stay fairly true to the books that it's possible my view may be skewed, but I don't really care, I just know I enjoy it! I get where he's coming from though. Definitely not the best movie ever, but a fairly decent adaptation of a book, in my opinion.
