Avatar; The Blue Monkeys

I recently saw the movie Avatar in 3-D. Not Avatar the last Airbender..just Avatar. This film in my perspective is rated an 11 on a 1-10 scale. The best thing about it was the high quality and surround sound. Also the fiction elements were very nice. Like in the nighttime, when the natives stepped on the trees and pattered around, the ground lit up a green neon. The other plot behind the story was that the stuff lighting up was actually a very valuable element that cost about 20 million dollars per ounce. The worst part, which my whole family agreed with, was the language. Even though this movie has a charming story line, the bad words are everywhere.

Christmas Eve?

Do you often find yourself restless on Christmas Eve? What is it that keeps us awake? Even when you haven't had that extra dose of caffeine you seem to be as hyperactive as ever. It's not just the anticipation of opening presents either, its the sense that the next morning is CHRISTMAS. The holiday almost everyone celebrates is near and waking up in the morning smelling the orange rolls and bacon is what really gets me going! Then everyone seems just so happy and cheerfull its hard not for Christmas to be your favorite holiday. So tell me what gets you going on Christmas, what makes you enjoy it so much??

Also, here's something that is really cool. with this website you can see where Santa is headed! Even though its not really all true, its still fun to see where "santas been" and you can even watch some of the videos of the places he's visited! From Germany to South Carolina to Alaska, they've got it all. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Corn Maze

My experience at the corn maze was far better than I had remembered it at a young age. Our church group went for an activity and i took along my best friend. When we got there, the lady at the concession stand called out my name in joy and told me to come there. She embraced me reminding me she babysat for me when I first moved here. Then we went into the corn maze...and it wasn't supposed to be scary cause the scary part closed after Halloween. Well,our church leaders decided to make it interesting and dressed up in can probably see where this is going but I will tell you I was terrified and the other three people with me were too. We all ran out of the corn maze(back to the entrance) and we even went back. After there were more people who scared us, we decided we had gotten our share of surprise. Then we went on the cow train,which is made for tiny kids, but we didn't care. It was great and it jogged my memory of the corn maze.After that me and my best friend dove into a big barrel of corn which is completely pointless but we started a corn fight!(kinda like a food fight) Then there was a big inflatable tarp that you can jump on!! We slid down it, walked up it,jumped on it, and fell off many times. My friend and I even got in some tether ball after that.Then, my favorite part, was the barn swing. The barn swing is when this guy straps you up real tight, makes you lean against his arm,and releases you. You go flying everywhere in the barn! It was a great experience, now i want to go to the maze EVERY year!!!(:

Sick Remedies

Ahh, the autumtine is rolling around, perfect time to get sick. Yes, I have a stuffy nose, a cold, a fever,etc. I was thinking of all the things I do when I'm sick and thought I'd share them with all of you. 1. i go outside for a little, and breathe some good air. 2. i only eat crackers and soups. 3. i drink hot tea (herbal) 4. i refrain from candy, little fluids, no sleep. 5. I read, write, blog :) 6. I google other things that will help me. 7. If i watch TV, i turn the volume down so my mind doesn't get really stressed when I have a fever. There are many ways to help your body be healthy again, and some people suggest very strange things to help you feel better when I pretty much just stick with the basics. Is there anything you would like to share with us that helps you? Be welcome to share. And...stay healthy!! Byee!

A Christmas Carol

Tonight for family night my family raced over to our local movie theatre to see the raved about "A Christmas Carol" With the voice of Jim Cary as old Scrooge. This has always been one of my all time favorite Christmas classics with the real-life people. This time, it's animated in 3-D. But of course my family, being my family, thought a 2-D experience would be just as good(especially my dad who likes saving money) So, we didn't get the full decked out journey but it was still three times as good as any Christmas Carol I've ever seen, with added effects, you actually feel like your soaring through this movie WITHOUT 3-D GLASSES. The people looked real, their hair, their faces, even their acne. It was also an added effect because we happened to be the only ones in the theatre, so we would pretend like we were flying in some parts or we would reach out our hands to "touch" things we knew would be presentable to us in 3-D. Another perk of the isolated theatre was that after the movie i provided entertainment by running through each isle, spinning, dancing, twisting this way and that to "God Bless Us, Everyone." of course my parents enjoyed this and gave me a round of applause when I was finished and breathing quite hard. We left happy, with full stomachs and bladders due to the large popcorn and extra large sodas. At the end, we all agreed, even my dad, that this movie would've been better in 3-D. :) but we all had fun, and I reccomend this movie highly (maybe just not as soon as we watched it. it would be more pleasing to watch closer to Christmastime in my opinion.)

Phrase Of The Day: Bah humbug!

Fake Smile vs. Real Smile

Today at my church, we had a program where all the kids got together in front of us and sang. What we call, a primary program. Now I'm not going to critique them, because they are only children. But there was one thing I couldn't help noticing as the kids filled the chapel that was bugging me. The primary leader, ushered the kids onto the stands, whispering, "smiles! smiles! smiles!" The children opened their lips, and showed their teeth and "smiled." You could tell when they were smiling that they weren't really enjoying what they were doing and their smiles would fade and they would have to prop their lip muscles up again. As they sang and gave short speeches I wondered if it's better to fake smile when nescessary or to just smile when it's a real one. That means no smiles sometimes..and maybe if the kids could do that none of them would be smiling..but isn't that better than phony smiles? What do you think? Comments will be appreciated.
Quote Of The Day: "You are not fully dressed until you wear a smile." :)

To Start Off, I Like Oranges.

When you look at my blog, you think, hey look another average person obsessed with fruit. Yes and no. Yes i like fruit. No I am not an average person. I am that little voice in your head to tell you to brush your teeth, or feed your cat, or take a shower. No, not your conscience. I'm different. I'm that person that when I see something, I will tell you. Because, your my best friend. I will tell you my thoughts but I'm not going to say anything bad about anyone. Just expressing my opinions. Just a normal person, who happens to love orange, who has to say what I feel. Have fun.

Question Of The Day: How do you open an orange?

Hi, So This Is It.

I created this because, I like the idea of blogging. Sharing my emotions and precious moments of my life with my family is important to me. I plan to blog religiously so that i may reflect on every moment of my life. Now time to loosen up. Kick back, relax, grab some popcorn. I'll keep in touch, don't worry. That's all i have to say for now.
