Me and Twilight

Alright, so Sharen really loves Twilight. She started to read the books over spring break on her trip to San Antonio with her family. She really got into them and for her birthday she got the three books available and the fourth book on order from Amazon. She read the fourth one so quick. I was happy to see her read a book. I have tried to read a book here and there but it is hard. But the movie comes out this weekend and I am excited for Sharen. She is really excited and I am very happy for that.

Me on the other hand, I am just excited to join Sharen. It's not that I don't care about the book and movie, I actually started to read the first book, but me personnally, I am not excited. Now Sharen has told me the story basically and it sounds very interesting, hence why I started to read the book. But I will explain in a bit why I am not TOO excited.

But first, I want to express my thanks to Stephenie Meyer, the author of the series. She not only wrote interesting stories, but gave our youth something to read. In an era where TV, the internet, cell phones, and everything that is going on, I was glad to see that the youth of this nation are reading. It maybe just one book but they are still reading. They have something else to read other than gossip magazines! This is something that makes me very happy. It isn't Harry Potter where it was more for a 8-10 year old. It is for teenagers. Teenagers need to read and they finally have something that interests them and gets them to do something that they need.

Now onto the movie. First here is the trailer so we are all on the right page.

I am very excited to be at the theater early with Sharen. This is the first movie that she wants to see and we will be seeing the midnight premiere. I am excited for that. But I am not too excited for the movie and here is why. From what Sharen has told me, the story is pretty interesting. The Cullens seem cool and they are supposed to have a pretty sweet Mercedes in the movie but here is where the excitement ends. First, the trailer doesn't make me want to see the movie. The way it looks is not what I had imagined. Bella and Edward, to me, are kind of ugly. They also don't look good together. It just isn't them. It's how the movie feels and looks. The trailer does not give justice to what Sharen has told me about the story.

The other blockbuster this year, The Dark Knight, the trailer did it great justice. Here it is.

It left people hanging and excited. I loved the movie. Whenever I did watch the trailer I got more and more excited. Watching it again just gets me excited for the Blu-Ray release on December 9. I can't wait.

So here is my final verdict. I am anticipating the movie more because of Sharen and because I don't want it to suck for Sharen. But you know how sometimes great trailers leads to crappy movies, let's hope a crappy trailer leads to a great movie!!

New Links

Here is a set of links to the new readers. The two of you.

Sharen's Blog

This is where I get all of my HD News
I know that I am a nerd.

Here is a link to some of my mission

My favorite video website is Hulu. You can catch up on The Office and other NBC and Fox favorites. Also watch Friday Night Lights and get ready for the new season coming in the winter. Finally, but definately not least, all of the seasons of Arrested Development are available on there. Please watch it, for your own sake.

You can play an updated version of the classic Oregon Trail from elementary school days here.

I got that from a website called Download Squad. It gives a bunch of computer and download information. And it also features posts called Time wasters. These are fantastic. For the most part they are games but addictive. Great stuff.

That is all for now, but I will need to remember some of the links that I am sent and put them here. I am going to try to keep my blog updated.

P.S. Everyone route for the Aberdeen Tigers. They are in the state semifinals. I found out today that if Nampa Christian beats Declo, they would play here in Boise on The Blue. I would be there. GO TIGERS!!


Well, it has been a while since I posted a blog. I had a minute after studying and I thought this would be a good time to give just some short comments about some topics that I have on my mind. Granted, these are short comments about some things.

First and foremost, the election. President Elect Obama won the election. We all knew it was going to happen. I am worried for somethings that could possibly happen with Obama. I heard he is not to happy with NAFTA and with other trade agreements the US has. That is not good. We need free trade. Also, I was reading he wants to use stem cell research. This just brings up other ethical questions. But we will see what happens once he gets into office. One small misstep and he will have even more problems than he has now.

Proposition 8!-A great victory for everyone! I am so grateful to the people of California to pass this. But I am tired of the gay people to blame the church for it passing. My buddy Brett sent me an email saying that he saw a stat that 70 percent of minorities voted to approve Proposition 8. The church makes up a small number of residents in California. Quit crying that you lost and quit trying to find someone to blame.

Football!! Is the greatest sport in the freaking world!! First, President Obama should seriously take initiative and make college football a playoff. No matter what he does, if he does that, he will possibly be one of the greatest presidents ever. The NFL is crazy. I don't see how the rest of the world just doesn't get into it. They need to. Great athletes playing a great sport. By the way, GO BRONCOS!!

GRADUATION!!-I am about 4 weeks from graduating with my Bachelors Degree. I never thought I would do it. But I am almost there and I am excited. I can't wait. It's going to be a great time. I am so happy. Every test that I take is just one more step to get there.

Christmas-I love Christmas. We celebrate the birth of Christ, our savior, but the actual holiday has a season. Stores are trying to extend that season. I mean I went to Walmart and heard CHRISTMAS MUSIC!! I hardly saw any Thanksgiving stuff. Whatever. Retailers wonder why they are struggling. Just get your act together.

Speaking of Christmas, I have Christmas, my birthday, and my graduation all around the same time. I asked my family to just combine and not spend a dime on me except for a Playstation 3. I bought it this past weekend and got it yesterday. I am just waiting for my HDMI cable. Now all I want is a job.

VH1 is a dumb channel. It started out Ok, but now it is horrible. Chance of love, Sharon Osborne has a show on there, I Love Money, these shows are just horrible. And then when they do something good, they screw it up. They did a list of the 100 greatest hip hop songs and Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" was #1. That is just stupid. I made a list and everything to post but I want to perfect it. Anyway, I have Jay-Z's "Hard Knock Life" as #1. What ya'll think?

My TV shows have been pretty good this year. The Office like always is great. They need more Jim and Pam together shots instead of her being in New York. It kind of has messed with chemistry. If Holly is gone, I will be pissed. MIchael and Holly were awesome. But the Dwight and Angela and Andy complex has been interesting. But the highlight of the season was undoubtedly Creed and his Joker Halloween outfit! Just great.

And finally but most importantly, I want to give you a piece of my mind about Sharen. She is the greatest wife in the world and she is flat out awesome. The other day she started talking about wanting to have tinfoil dinners. She made them and they were good!! She has been making bows, scrabble pendants, and other random things that I just love. I love watching her. She is just so full of life but most of all, I love to see her sleep. It is just a great feeling. My Heavenly Father really wanted me to be happy. That is why he let me marry her. I love you Shar.

I think this is all for now. Leave comments and have other people read! Later
