I Am The Predator, You Are The Prey

It's tragic i know that i haven't posted in a couple days. but it was the weekend... i am about to give you an update now.

So, as life goes, the last couple days (thursday/friday) have been some of the hardest that i have had to deal with. But it was followed up by some great times. I won't go into too much detail, but i had a great time on Saturday. I'm surprised i could talk after all the conversing i did between Friday and Saturday night.

I can't thank everyone enough for putting everything into persective. Bob and Lauren really got it going... So, i can't thank them enough. From there, the weekend was on an uphill slop. Starting out with breakfast on at my favorite place, Succotash, with the awesome Aaron and Garthy on Saturday. The conversation was great. Followed by talking at the pool with Bob and Lauren whilst tanning. Then, singing and screaming on the way to maybe one of the best Wal-Mart trips in a long while. The night ended up with Heather, Bob and Lauren, "not watching" Thumbsucker, because we were too busy talking. Oh, and Papa Johns. Delicious.

Sunday:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Although visually entertaining, I felt this was a big disappointment after watching the The Prisoner of Azkaban. The biggest advantage to this film was dragons. Dragons are always a win for me in a movie. However, it wasn't enough to save it. The movie was about a contest that Harry gets wrapped into unwillingly, but somehow it is sandwiched between a secret plot... and a love story... and all to convenient classes. I felt like the movie was long, and not as well tied together. This movie was darker than even the last, and set up the next movie to be epic.

After this came the "Shark Week '07 Kick-off Party". Everyone brought some sort of "themed" snack. Heather designed the poster and brought "Chum" Punch, Cecilia brought Goldfish crackers, Emily brought Shark Infested Jello, Bob and Lauren Louisiana Yum-yum (with Shark gummies), Jay-bo and Patty, as well as myself brought Rice Crispy Sculptures. Brian hosted, supplied gummies, chips and dip, and took pictures. I will upload some pictures later with his permission. The show was only OK, but the party was freaking amazing.

Land of the Dead - It's been quite some time since I have seen a zombie movie. And really any time without a zombie movie is too long. The basic idea of this movie is; well after zombies first started to walk the Earth, they have started to adapt and even learn. People have sectioned themselves off from the zombies, but they aren't having it. The movie was full of gore, the acting was actually better then most horror movies, and of course it was directed by the man who made zombies what they are today, George A. Romero. The plot was a little sloppy, but thats my only complaint. For fans of the undead only.

Today, I was able to focus. I finished (well, close) the card that has been on my case for 2 weeks now. I goofed off just enough, and and worked more. When i returned home I tonight after Big Love, i got to talk to my ex-girlfriend Sammie. We had a great chat and caught up with each other. She is so easy to talk to. The main topic; growing up. If what she says is true, she is doing really great for herself. I'm proud to be her friend.

Emily sent this to make me happy. fun.

I think that makes up for the two days missing right? gah. you people must hate me.

i can't think of a good song lyric.
