Sex and the City. It was damn fun. A little bit more serious than you're used to seeing in a 30-minute episode, but something had to happen for there to be a plot. So, there's this middle to end 3/5 of the movie that isn't quite the laughs and humor you get used to with SATC. But, enjoying it with a cosmo and old friends made for quite an enjoyable evening.
The Incredible Hulk. Did I mention I'll see almost ANY movie if you get me in the right mood? It was a rainy Sunday, what else was I supposed to do? Edward Norton is a hottie and a damn fine actor, so I loved his performance. Liv Tyler, well I would really like to BE her, so I thought she was great. And Tim Roth pulled off a nice antagonist to the BB's alter ego. Yet, I didn't feel the motivation was quite there for his character's action. Initially, yes. But then? Well, maybe the gamma is addicting in low doses. And he did have some absurd lines, all the actors did really, but what else are you to expect? It's an action movie and it was good, summer fun.
Trailer-in-waiting: While, I grew absolutely GIDDY in seeing The X-Files trailer (I knew it the minute I saw Amanda Peet and heard her say "you're not exactly the most popular woman with the FBI, right now...") I'd really like a Harry Potter trailer. If that hits me unexpectedly (without any WB announcement beforehand) I might spill my Diet Dr. Pepper. So, future movie goers watch out. You have been warned.
If you're lucky, one of two things can happen. Despite the loss of life, the destruction of homes, the ruin of whole towns; humans can surprise you with their compassion.
And then there's this 13 year-old who, naturally as an Iowan, is blowing away the rest of the country with his or her commentary on what he or she has seen helping out people in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. And damn, can he write. You cannot expect that level of writing proficiency from any given adult, let alone a 13 year old. That's because Iowa education rocks! :D
Good luck everyone, I hope you and your families stay tornado and flood-free.
Oh, and the other thing that can happen? People scream and shout and complain and basically, you remember what an ugly world this place can be. So, let's hope we stay on course with option one.

This is what? A week late? But, yes, I took a pic of the tv. There were so many emotions in this evening...and I had a lot to deal with. I thought HC would be the better president, but I now must accept that BO is the nominee. And, I've been thinking about this for a few months, he's not a horrible second choice. And damn, that man can GIVE a speech. I am also confident he will do better things for our country then any republican ever could. But that's maybe why I'm a democrat...

You are independent, passionate and unconventional, with a sharp tongue and a quick mind. But you have a quick temper and sometimes forget who you're talking to...

But, prayfullness. It was used in this episode of Prayer in America and it made me giggle. The man using it was totally serious and academic and the use made sense..but prayfullness? America should really stop making up words. I think we're out of any good options.
Wow, and that was going to be a short entry. Whoops.

Anyone else remember how much ice we got in December? It was like living on a skating rink which is very tricky when going to campus on a giant hill. Or a mount. Mount Oread that is. Still, with all the time I spent on campus because of Campaigns, I got some awesome shots of Stace and I celebrating the completion of The Plans Book (to remain unseen) and a cool shot of our lovely ice-covered campus.
A bit of tweaking in Picasa made this picture look a little grainy (from the sharpening) but also rather striking and mysterious.
