Well, my friends, it's been a while. Sorry about that. My computer was kinda' out of commission. I probably still wouldn't have written because I have nothing to write about. That's right. My life is boring, as usual. At least it's predictable! .... Wait--I DON'T WANT TO BE PREDICTABLE!!! Man, this sucks.
Well, I can give you a few movie reviews. RIDDICK--pretty good. Vinny is always hot but, in this one, he's even hotter. Lots of stuntwork and fighting and killing. Plus there a chick who totally kicks trash. Gotta love the empowerment, ladies. DODGEBALL-- Okay. It was pretty funny. There were a few sexual inuendo's and outright perverted moments that I didn't agree with. Other than that, it was okay. I love Ben Stiller--he makes himself very easy to hate in this one. But hey, I like Chuck Norris too.... I, ROBOT was awesome. Lots of action. It's intense and there are lots of twists. This is my kind of movie. I love action/comedy movies. The best thing about this movie is that it's NOT a love story. THE VILLAGE rocked. I saw it the first day it came out. I loved it. I'm not usually one for scary movies, but this one was definitely cool. It kept me in the fetal position in my seat through at least half of it. There is a big twist though. Go see The Village. CATWOMAN got a lot of not-so-great reviews from some friends, so I had to see for myself. It actually wasn't that bad. It was nice to have a woman be the hero figure. They didn't really play with the plot all that much, though. And the audience knows "the twist"(if that's what you want to call it), but catwoman doesn't. Kinda' weird. It didn't end very well. I still want to see the Bourne Supremacy and the Manchurian Candidate.
Amanda and Alex went home on Monday. I love them, but I was SO ready for Amanda to be gone. She's a sweet girl, but she definitely has a sour side. The worst part is that when she's a snot, she does it in a round about way. I hate that. If you're going to be a brat or a jerk--do it straight up! Don't be shy about it--be an outright snot. I hate it when people do it in a round about way....it's so annoying.
Anyway, enough with that. I have less than two weeks left before I go back home. I can't wait. I decided I'm going to be really busy this school year. I'll have work, debate, drama (with Sean--yay! He's awesome. I'm so glad that he agreed to be my partner to compete--he's one of the best actors I know), possible City Youth Council, and most likely Miss Spanish Fork stuff. Plus school--homework and stuff. Yay. I love being busy. I thrive on stress.
Well, Mark will be back in less than a week! Yay! I found out that his brother, Alan, and Alan's wife, Natalie, are coming the same day Mark is. I've met both of them before. They got married a few months ago, so they came out in January so Natalie could meet the fam. Of course, I was there a lot of the time. You couldn't have met the Chase family without meeting me. I don't think Natalie likes me though. I think she was annoyed that another girfriend was there besides her. Plus the Chases already knew and loved me, and that's what she was trying to achieve. I think she was mad that I already had that and she didn't yet. But she JUST MET THEM!! Plus, we were all playing Jeopardy on the computer and when one of the categories was "Music" or something, she went "Oh yes!! I'll do really well with that one!" I think she was in musical theatre and/or band or something...Well, I'm in musical theater and I was in band for four years. So I know a little myself. I didn't say anything, though, because she was a guest and I just let her have the spotlight the whole time, you know? So anyway, we got to playing and she picked one from the music category. We both knew the answer, but she buzzed in first. Well, she got it wrong, so I got to answer and I got it right. I think that annoyed her. It kept happening with all of the musice questions. I think that annoyed her even more. I wasn't doing it on purpose! So anyway, she gave me dirty looks the whole time and seemed really annoyed whenever I was over at the Chases. I hope she's over it and I hope we can have fun this time. I think another reason she didn't like me was because I got the cutest Chase boy!! Hahaha!! (Ask anyone who knows the Chases who the cutest one is and everyone will say Mark). I think she's the same age as Mark--if not really close. She's just jealous that I got the cuter one! Alan's really cool though. He warmed up to me pretty fast. He was teasing me and joking around with me within the first hour--I don't think Natalie liked that very much either. Oh well. She can go around being bitter and annoyed all her life. I don't really care what she thinks. Oh! Guess what!!?? Mark might take me to a Cardinals game! I'm so excited!! Yay!
Anyway, I have to go get ready for work. Until next time!
