TGIM

So I had a crappy weekend. I'm running on zero sleep and I'm actually glad it is a Monday for a change. New episode of T:SCC is on tonight, and the Super Bowl is this Sunday, I feel like if I make it through the next few days I'll be a-o-k.

How was your weekend. Did you do anything fun?

So I promise this isn't going to become a religious/political blog.

So I'm not out to make my blog a political soapbox and I'm not out to preach my religion on the blog either. I'm gonna talk about Mormons for bit. Read on if you want.


Gordon B. Hinckley, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints died today. He was 97.

So what did some old dude mean to me? He meant you could be religious, committed and still enjoy yourself. You could be silly and serious. You could live your life according to a Moral Code, and not be all stuffy about it.

My religion and what I believe make up a huge part of who I am. I appreciate he taught me how to do that with out being self righteous or smug or judging. I try not to be, I may not be perfect at it, but I try and I'm grateful for his example. There is a lot of things I could say, the article I linked, and the others you can read say most of them.

So anyway, I looked up to Gordon Hinckley. I'll miss him.

Quantum of Solace

James Bond will return in Quantum of Solace . Casino Royal, while not my favorite Bond movie, did have its moments. Unfortunately the parts that deviated from the novel were better than the parts they adapted. Even so, I'm exited for Quantum of Solace. The new director directed Finding Neverland (a great film) so I have high hopes.

Even Weirder Wednesday

Paris says, "Brittney is a great Mother"

This on the heels of Brittney becoming a home-wrecker for the second time.

So I guess if Brittney ever gets custody of her kids, we know they will turn out like Paris. Thats a scary thought. Not the K-fed is the pinnacle parenthood either. Maybe Brad and Angelina will adopt the Federline Boys. They like helping kids out of no win situations.

Weird Wednesday #17



I guess I'll keep that in mind, should I get the sudden penchant to drown myself.

Chronicled

Episode 3 of Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles was good. The pace changed slightly from the fast, almost chaotic, pace of the movies, to a more settled in, weekly show type of rhythm. The show is still intense. Summer Glau is allowed to settle into her role as a human looking cyborg. She even steals a few scenes acting like a 'freak', which she excels at. Of all the things I was excited about for this show, perhaps Summer being in the cast tops the show. River being River is hard to top (for you firefly fans).

This episode continues with, what I call, the anti-sci-fi plot. Where the Heroes make an attempt to destroy future/emerging technology.

I haven't been into a network TV show for quite some time (excluding Simpsons, which I don't follow anymore, I just buy the DVDs) So far I'm enjoying this one. It is good enough to make me stray from my normal safe harbors of History, Discovery, National Geographic, ESPN/FSN and Food Networks.

The old episodes are available online if you missed them.

Come with me if you want to live.

Is anyone else watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?

I caught the first two installments. Its good so far.

It is probably the only series I'll watch this season, so I hope it keeps it up.

Don't read unless you want the MeMe spoiled.

So I , being the geek I am, figured out the way they work this. They take each letter of the name you provided and match one of their pre-made paragraphs to it. If there is a repeat letter, they skip it, but they leave an extra return (carriage return) behind. That is why Teri only has 4 paragraphs and I have a ton of paragraphs. That is why DickSmall has the same 5th paragraph as my 1st paragraph. Just for kicks I put in the whole alphabet to confirm it.

1. I ride the bus pretty much everywhere I go. I started about a year ago.

2. One of my New Year resolutions is to learn Japanese. I started today. (not taking a class on it, ... yet)

4. I love, LOVE, birds, especially parrots. I got a Parrot for Christmas. (Thx Superwoman!) I can die happy now.

5. The other thing I need to do before I die is write a novel. It would be great to be published, but I don't know if I have the talent. I have an idea for a book kicking around. I need to stop being a wuss and start writing.

6. I used to hate macs. I got a job, where I program an application for the mac, four years ago. Now I don't care for PC's
