Typically, a festive time of hanging out with friends and family and celebrating the new year. I was ready to continue my posting throughout the break when I realized nobody is reading these and nobody is posting their own either so I decided to take a short break but with my return to Riverside in two days my posting should return to it's usual fact filled and fascinating information. Tonight my New Years Eve plan is to see a movie with my brother and come back to our house and watch tv, maybe play a little Wii. No one to kiss at midnight, no party to go to and stay up till 2am so if I make it passed midnight I will consider it an accomplishment. One thing to mention about my day would be I received an hour long massage today from Zen Spa and Salon, it was awesome. Possibly more to follow about that experience at a later date.
Well...It is Christmas morning and all is well. What a wonderful time of the year. Last night my family and I enjoyed a Christmas Eve service and this morning enjoyed some what we call Swedish Pancakes for breakfast and then proceeded to open our gifts after breakfast. The last few days leading up to this day I have spent the majority of my time in my bed watching Lost Season 3 and enjoying a Christmas Coke in a glass bottle, the way they were made to be enjoyed. I love Christmas for so many reasons and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas as well as a blessed day of remebering our saviors birth.
Well...Two blogs in two days. I am back on track. I am relaxing on my couch at home watching "Snipers" on the History Channel. Typically during the winter and Christmas break people have time to go see movies at the theater. These two weeks (from about Dec. 20- Jan. 1) is kinda like a mini blockbuster season. Coming soon on this Friday Dec. 21, National Treasure: Book of Secrets is released as well as the star packed film titled Charlie Wilson's War. The sequel of the three year old blockbuster National Treasure will be filled with much of the same historical fun facts as well as action packed scenes broken up with Nicolas Cage's classic one liners. However if you are looking for a much different and more dramatic with better acting turn your attention to talents of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Two other movies to watch out for coming on Christmas Day are The Bucket List and The Great Debaters. The Bucket List appears to be a movie including two hours of comical dialog between two great actors Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The Great Debaters, an intense film based on historical happenings of a professor at a small college in Texas during the mid 30s who challenged his students to strive for excellence and use words in their battles. Denzel Washington again with a highly praised performance. In the future be aware of these few movies and their release dates so you can go catch them on their opening night. On 2/22/08 Vantage Point is released, 5/18/08 is Prince Caspian, and on 7/18/08 The Dark Knight is finally released. For now so long and farewell.
Well....I must apologize for my lack of posting, it actually was a full week from my last post and I got called on it. Partly the reason being is I am now in Fresno for Christmas Break. This does mean I have more time on my hands however the time is not as structured so it is hard to get motivated but I assure you more posts will be coming soon. Anyways I have seen on two different friend's blogs of their engagement so I figured no better time than the present to announce....my upcoming trip to Germany. I will be on an ISP team to Deutschland in the month of May. I am very excited about this and keep checking back for more updates about this trip. This is a picture of myself and three of my teammates enjoying Chick-Fil-A. This was actually my first experience at Chick-Fil-A and I plan to blog and leave a review on here eventually as well as some movie predictions as well as reviews. Thanks for reading as always.
Well....This is not going to be a very long post, however that does not take away from the importance of it. Not much else can be said as an intro, but you've seen them before as R. Kelly and Usher, most recently singing the Numb/Encore, and now they have a Christmas gift for everyone to see, so this is TLR doing "This Gift" by 98 Degrees. The Legit Rappers are back once again.
Well.....I hate the BCS. I really do, but before you tune out, I am NOT complaining. I am sick of everyone complaining about the BCS, every sports writer, college student, and sports fan has something negative to say about the BCS. And thats ok, I agree, I don't like it but get over it. If you do not have a better solution quit complaining about it cause right now its the best thing we got. I do realize many of you at this point are getting frustrated with this post and would like to argue and debate over a playoff system of some sort. To have a true playoff system with 33 different conferences and 120 teams in the NCAA Division I-A Football conference is nearly impossible. Some may suggest having a playoff system with just the top 10 teams but then you run into the problem of deciding the top 10 teams. Some may argue that Hawaii this year because they were the only undefeated team but most would say that because of their conference and strength of schedule they do not deserve it or are not as good as the currently ranked #1 team Ohio State. However we will never know because they will never play each other. While I do see flaws in the system, I do not find myself with a flawless system. Now we know that Ohio State will be playing LSU for the National Championship and while I do not like the pick of LSU to be in the National Championship I will still be interested in the game and be anxious to hear about the outcome. Give the BCS a break, they're stuck between a rock and a hard place. There is no fair system that will give all teams a chance to compete for the National Championship....GET OVER IT!
