Tyson once got in touch with his piggy side as well...

Ah geez, there she goes showing embarrassing pictures again!

Writers Block!

I have a serious case of writers block going on! I have things to say but they are just sitting there in my brain, running rampant.

This. Sucks.

Earth...and Oceans.

Today is Earth Day so to celebrate it I went to see the new Disney nature movie, "Earth". You MUST see it.
It was visually breathtaking as it covered our beautiful planet. It was heart wrenching to watch the circle of life, though as it is a Disney film geared towards educating children the violence was minimum. They never showed the full result of a hunt or a death. Nonetheless, I felt such sadness over the polar bear story. (And I am a sap that gets all teary eyed over the polar bears in the commercial for the WWF.)

They also showed the trailer for the 2010 Earth Day movie -- "Oceans". Another MUST SEE!!

I can't wait!

Tempe, AZ won the contest to host the world premiere of "XMen Origins: Wolverine".

The movie premieres next Monday, April 27th. And that means....

Hugh Jackman is going to be in town!!!

I can't wait...I'm going over to Tempe Marketplace after work on Monday to see what (and who) I can see!

Too much time on my hands!

I did it...I gave Tyson a facebook today...well a catbook. *smiles*
I actually saw it linked on another friend's page for her dog and couldn't resist.
Tyson on "Catbook".

Let me show you my geekdom...

So the big decision for Saturday night for me:
What do I watch:

Star Wars Trilogy or Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
These are my two all time fave trilogies. (I don't count the newer Star Wars movies as I just didn't like them as much...and they don't feature Han Solo.)

Han Solo kinda edges Aragorn out for me. My biggest crush was on Han Solo. And I think Princess Leia is cooler than either Arwen or Eowyn. And Luke Skywalker is cooler than Frodo. But Legolas as a sidekick is cooler than Chewbacca. And the hobbits are cooler than C-3P0, but maybe not as cool as R2-D2.

The lightsaber is clearly a more awesome weapon. Though the Uruk-hai are more intimidating than the Storm Troopers. Sauron and the evil of Mordor is more evil than The Dark Side. And Gandalf and Ben Kenobi are no contest with Gandalf winning. However, Yoda kicks major ass over Gollum.

In the choice of the One Ring an the Force...I had to choose Han Solo. I love me some Star Wars. I fell asleep mid-way through Return of the Jedi and woke up to Star Wars on again. heh!

I don't have HBO so I didn't get to see "Grey Gardens" tonight, which sucks as I wanted to see it. But looking at premiere pictures from NY and I have to say that Drew Barrymore's look is just stunning. (And I just adore Justin Long as well!)

(I'm catching up on the celebrity gossip at the moment.)

Things I have learned in life

I actually wrote this for something else, but I liked them and wanted to share them:

*Please note, it is my life only that I'm talking about. Things I have learned or observed. Though if you learned or observed the same lesson, then yay for us! We are cool peeps!*

Life is not always going to be perfect. Sometimes you are going to have to go through the dark times in order to see the light.

The toughest person to like is yourself, but you are all you have so you need learn to accept, embrace, and love yourself.

It is okay to be mad at your family, but do not get so mad that you forget to love them.

Never get so set in your ways that you are blind to another’s.

It is okay if you need to cry over something petty.

Sometimes you lose.

No matter your political views, there is still a solider in another country fighting for your rights. Respect that.

Sometimes a friendship ends. It is not always the fault of either of you, it just happens that way. Remember the good times and move on with life.

Holding a grudge gets you nowhere in the end, but angry.

That person that you idolize is not always worthy of you.

Not everyone is going to like you. It is a fact of life. It does not mean you are any less of a person for it.

It is perfectly normal to get angry with your friends sometimes, it works both ways. Just remember that they are your friends in the end.

When you preach that you don't lie, make sure that you aren't getting caught up in your own lie.

The only person that can make the steps towards change in your life is you.

There is nothing wrong with being a daydreamer.

Being a fan girl is an okay thing to be.

Never lose your sense of humor.

And always have the ability to laugh at yourself and learn to take a joke.

There is nothing wrong with going to the movies alone.

Never stop learning.

Believe in yourself and your ability to follow your dreams.

Wander whenever you can. You never know where your path is going to lead you and what adventures you may have.

Don't become so jaded that your heart shuts off.

It is okay to not be friends with your co-workers, it is okay to dislike them as long as you can professionally work with them.

There are people that are just not nice or worth your time.

Don't put anyone on a pedestal. Their fall is far and you hurt yourself.

If someone smiles at you, smile back. You may make their day...and you may make your own day.

There are people that are just ugly on the inside, don't beat yourself up trying to change them.

Wake up each morning and remind yourself of what you have to be thankful for, don't let yourself feel it is ever worthless or hopeless.

Hello, Gilles Marini!

Academy of Country Music awards

How many awards shows can they put out there?
And could Billy Ray Cyrus promote himself any more than he did?? Sheesh!
But I want to talk about Carrie Underwood and her lava dress...What the heck! It was swallowing her!

I much prefer the other two dresses she had on:

It was a big night for Carrie! She definitely deserved Entertainer of the Year! And how about Julianne Hough? I knew she sang but I never heard any of her stuff...guess she must do pretty good. ;) She looked gorgeous.

I'm not a big fan of Nicole Kidman, but she definitely looked glamorous tonight. Her husband, Keith Urban, is just one hot man.

But the best looking man, in my opinion anyway....

He may play the bongos naked while stoned, he may never shower, but Matthew McConaughey just has to smile and I melt.

Cutest thing ever...

Tyson is laying here snoring.
So. Cute.

Fortune say:

Look to the next month for some pleasant surprises.

Hmmm...I'm going to hold out high hopes for this.

Is anyone watching?

I won't spoil tonight, but I have to talk about last week! The last minute of the show...Sayid shooting young Ben! How does this affect them? If Ben dies then does it mess with their futures? If there is no Ben, there is no one to bring them all to the island? Is this what they are all supposed to be ultimately fixing? Even if there are two more seasons to go, that is. Or will Ben die and the remainder of the show will be spent with them going further back in time to try to prevent the Dharma Initiative from even happening?

So many questions! And the last minute of tonight's episode -- oh my!! I can't wait for next week!!
