Alright, it has been a minute since I last wrote a blog. But Sharen has been going crazy on hers and I figured that today would be a good day to get started on a blog and hopefully finish it by the end of the day. There has been a alot going on and I have a lot on my mind. So if you are going to read this, remember, you have been warned. So here we go!

First off, I wish I was as creative as my wife. She has done amazing things to her myspace and her blog. But now she got hold of Adobe Photoshop and has done some crazy things to pictures. She is so artistic and so creative. She put a project playlist on her blog as well so you can enjoy smoothing tunes as you read it. I would do it on mine, but I don't think most of you would enjoy what I would put on there, unless I put some all time classics? HMM??? Anyway, she is so good at this stuff that I feel inferior to her creativity. I am only a computer geek sometimes but when she gets to making pages and doing all this other jazz, WOW! She is impressive.

Speaking of Sharen, she wanted me to go with her to the downtown market that goes on every Saturday in downtown Boise. I had never gone and she went with her parents. Well, we went and as always, I was looking for free samples of food and looking at the displays while Sharen was looking at people to see if she knew anybody. Well, next thing I know Sharen taps me and says, "Isn't that.." and then I said, "That's Val Kilmer!" Not only was he a famous Hollywood actor, he was a Batman! Yes, the greatest series of movies ever!! Although he could not live up to Michael Keaton as Batman, he did a good job in Batman Forever. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So if you take a look at Sharen's blog you can see pictures of him eating some meat. He has a house here in Boise and it is pretty big. That was pretty cool to finally see a Batman. Now I need to meet Joker. (Jack Nicholson, not Heath Ledger)

One of my passions is sports. How can anyone get tired of them? Well, I started to this summer. Everything had started well. The Yankees were doing horribly. Michael Vick is never going to play football again! The 49ers have a lot of promise. Kevin Durrant and Greg Oden are going to be a great rivalry in the Northwest. The Braves were back in contention to win their division. It started off so wonderfully. And then it all came down to a final death this past week. When Barry Bonds hit his 755* home run, the summer of 2007 officially became the darkest and ugliest summers for sports fans! Tom Donaghy fixing basketball games for the mob and Michael Vick's situation (although I hate what he did, I am kind of happy he did it so when he gets put in jail maybe the inmates will treat him like he did the dogs! Can't we hope?) and cheating again in the Tour de France. Not only that you have Pacman Jones hitting strippers across the face and suspended for the year going on with wrestling. This has just been an ugly summer. I hate Barry Bonds and I hate everything he represents. And it's not even the record. It's the fact that kids are taking steroids because they think it is the only way to become better instead of just doing it naturally. Do you want an extra step? Eat some freaking spinach! Popeye did! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

But lucky for all of us, football is coming around. I am excited. I am getting Madden on Tuesday for our Wii and I love how they are making it family friendly to where my wife can play with me! I am excited! The college football season is going to be fun but I think in the end it may be dull because of the fact that USC will win the National Championship against Michigan. That is how it is going to go down! Seriously that is what is going to happen! Let's not kid ourselves! Also, there is a rumor going around that Oregon wants Boise State to change the home game that BSU has against them in 2009 to where they can play in.....CHINA! Yes, CHINA! Why? Who knows, but that would be pretty cool if that went down. It's a long shot, but who knows, that is why college football is awesome!

Alright, enough sports for now, when the season starts there will more to talk about. I will even include my stuff on fantasy football. I LOVE FOOTBALL! Anyway, this summer has been a great time for movies! Pirates of the Carribean, Spider-Man, Shrek (which I haven't seen yet), TRANSFORMERS!!, and the list goes on. But last weekend I went to watch The Bourne Ultimatum and man it was DOPE! I loved it. The action was awesome and the story was awesome. It maybe #2 on my list of the summer movies, right under Transformers because nothing could outdo that. But then Sharen asked me to take her to Hairspray. Yes, I know it is a musical, which I hate. I don't know, musicals just don't do it for me. Anyway, I wasn't that excited to go but Sharen wanted to go so we went. It wasn't my favorite movie but I didn't hate it! Before I went in, I would have never watched it, but now I am sort of glad I did. It's kind of hard to explain but anyway, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great. But the reason why I bring this up is because it does do a good job in bringing up the race issue from back in the 60's. And I just wanted to say thanks to those couragous individuals like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar Chavez and others who helped with equality of race. They have all helped me out because now I can go to school with no one bugging me or hastling me. But I was telling Sharen last night, we have problems now and some people think that it was better back in the olden days. But they had their problems too. Ritchie Valens wasn't Ritchie Valens. He was Richard Valenzuela. Why the name change? Because his record company wanted to hide his hispanic heritage. But he brought "La Bamba" and Spanish was cool. Thanks to all of them. I appreciate it and I am very grateful.

I think that was all. I am just looking forward to Tuesday so I can enjoy Madden. I am pumped about it! I am even taking the day off of work. I am pulling a Madden Holiday. So I think that is when my next blog will come. Also, maybe some links with that. So hopefully I will have a more entertaining blog. See ya'll later!
