The Birdman

Andy and I were out walking around and saw this pigeon hanging out on a window sill. So we had some fun.

Night at the Museum

Hilarious! Laughed a lot. HAnk Azaria stole the show. There were a ton of stars in this movie alongside Ben Stiller. I just want to say that there are two swear words in it! That may not seem like a big deal to you, but when the first movie was completely void of cussing and I take my kids to see it I expect the same level in number 2! Very frustrating. They were totally uncalled for too. But that doesn't even matter to me. I don't like my kids hearing that language and as long as I can protect them from it, based on my abilities, I will. One place is movie choices. I will do better research next time.

Check out
Here is what they said regarding language.

"Characters use variants of "d--n" twice and "god" about half-a-dozen times. Holding a pitchfork, Larry evokes an obscenity when he hollers, "I will fork you." As in the first film, there's quite a bit of name-calling involving words such as "stupid" and the German "dummkopf." We also hear "dadgumit" and teen boys saying "sucks.""


Test Blog

I just downloaded talkcast for my phone and I am seeing how it works for blogging. I got up at 5 this morning so I coil go ballooning. It is soooo early but I love doing it. It was a perfect morning for ballooning. We started at Keizer City Rapids Park and ended up at Adams Stephens middle school. The couple that flew got engaged in the air. Pretty cool.

Trying to put a pic in here but looks like I need to do the pic separately. Lame. Of course it's my first time so maybe I am not doing something right.

I am thinking about breaking up


Why is it that I check my email in yahoo and I have to read results of American Idol while I am watching the results show?! This is the second time this week. You would think I would learn, but you would also think that Yahoo would give a rip about their west coast constituents! I am going to make sure I don't get on my laptop next week during the finals. But honestly! This is ridiculous YAHOO!!! I am really upset with you right now.

Maybe it's time to break up. Gmail incorporates everything on the planet and it's all free. I already use soooo much of google's software. Yahoo, you have really hurt me. I can't say it's me, not you, because it really is you. I realize that these are my raw emotions speaking, but I don't think I will think any differently after a night of sleep. But I will sleep on it before I make any rash decision. After all, it has been 11 years we have been in this relationship.

You Ruined the Celebrity Apprentice!

Dear Yahoo and FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer,

Tonight I am sitting here watching the Celebrity Apprentice finale. As I am writing this blog I am still watching. I decided to take a peek at my email. My email is with yahoo and when you look at your email the home section is news. And there it was, the winner of the show I am watching! WHAT?!?!?! I can't believe it. Do you have any clue that here on the West coast the show is not over yet?!? Seriously!

I just can't believe it. I thought there was some code of ethics or something that pays attention to the fact that results aren't known by people who haven't seen the show yet. While you are at it would you mind calling me on my cell phone in the middle of the next M. Night Shyamalan movie and tell me what the crazy twist is at the end? When you email me back I will give you my cell. That would be awesome.

I don't know if you realize that the last paragraph is filled with sarcasm. You suck!

You know I love technology. I always want (key word there...not get) the latest, fastest, coolest, tech gadget available. I think this may just be what I need
You can use that or you can go here.

Help Your Memory

Occasionally I get to hear John Tesh DJing on the radio (don't judge me). He talked about a study that will help to improve your memory. There were five things...One of them was to journal every day. I am a terrible journaler. That's why I blog. It feels more natural to me. Twitter has unfortunately curbed my blogging quite a bit. I keep "recommiting" to blogging and I keep failing. This is my attempt to get back on it.

Now what the heck were those other four tips? I forget...
