Twilight & good friends.

I was going to wait a few weeks for the crowds to thin out alittle to go and see Twilight. Then this morning my dear friend Nancy from work & her daughter called me to say they had an extra ticket & wondering if I would go with them. Be still my heart! It was so much fun. I can't imagine going to see this movie with anyone but these two. We have been talking & fawning about Twilight for months now & it was so much fun to go and see it with them & drool over's nice to have drooling buddies :)
Thank you Nancy & Mandolin!!! You guys are so sweet.
And the was just great. It stayed very close to the book, which I adore. Edward was handsome & dangerous & thankfully only made a few cringe-worthy faces. & Bella really surprised me. I'm not a big Kristen Stewart fan but she did an awesome & lovable Bella. My one complaint; it just went by too fast. I could have sat there & watched a few more hours of Twilight *sigh* I look forward to it being on DVD so I can enjoy any extra footage or deleted scenes.

Liberals are like slinkies...

Liberals are like slinkies. Not much good for anything, but it still makes you smile when you push one down the stairs.

Duck game

Jordan invited us to come with her to the Oregon vs Stanford game today. It was so much fun, my favorite game ever. Even though it poured nearly the entire time & we got soaked, it was so awesome. Thank you Jordan & Brandon!!!!

Brandon & Jordan Bair.

Election Woes

I am so very disappointed with the way this election seems to have turned out. I’ll start off locally. I have never had much faith in the majority of citizens in Eugene & they continue to reinforce that. I don’t know why I get my hopes up each election that good will prevail & the liberal sheep of this community will pull their heads out of the ground & make a good decision. But alas, I am always disappointed. Now they are all up on their high horse saying they won because “they stuck to the issues” and insinuating that Republicans lost because they are all must be mud-slinging hate mongers. Hypocrytes. They are all just dirty politicians any way you call it, but I especially hate a self-righteous politician.

I have no faith that my vote counts for anything here. But I still have to pay taxes to support people and issues that don’t give a crap about me or my values.

I am also upset about Obama getting elected. And just as I figured, all everyone is talking about is how historical it is. What is so historical about it? Oh yeah, it’s because he is black. (Actually he is only like 8% black, but that’s beside the point.) It is just as I suspected all along, it was always about race. No one was really listening to his ideology; they were all just jumping on the “it’s cool & progressive of me to vote for a black man” bandwagon.

Now I despised those people with their “Bush: he’s not my president” slogans on many different levels, and I won’t be obnoxious like that with Obama. However, I won’t just stick my tail between my legs & admit defeat.

I don’t support Obama, and I won’t. Just because he is elected does not make his ideology any more palatable to me. I don’t trust him & I’ll be watching as he makes those “changes” that I so disagree with & praying that his worshippers wake up and realize that Obama-ization of America isn’t really in any of our best interests.
