Freebie!

A co-worker/friend and I went to a free screening of "Blades of Glory" staring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder. It was so funny! I knew it was going to be funny, but it was really nice to laugh. The screening was packed. Yes, all us losers came out that evening for a free movie.

It was a bit silly in parts, but overall it was hysterical. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars on Netflix.


Right now I'm watching a show on cable about the devils of the internet. It is very interesting. It covered everything from porn, to online gambling, pedophiles in chat rooms, suicides/bullying on myspace, and buying drugs, basically everything bad you can do online.

One of the most interesting (and depressing) were the ones where people died, like a young 13-year-old who was teased about being gay online in some chat room. It drove him to suicide and that is so sad! He was online pretty much every second (in his room behind closed doors) and his parents didn't like it, but they didn't take the steps they should have. The computer should be in a neutral room in the house with kids.

Then, another one was a girl who was smart and won a scholarship to a Florida University, and suddenly 6 months after being there emailed her family and said she was depressed, had been that way a long time and wanted to die, and that she was sorry but that when they get that email she'd be dead, and she took some cyanide in a motel room. God, that's awful.

I'm sorry to depress you guys for the weekend. I didn't mean too.

I'm tired, I was out all day today, I spent a lot of money this week. Argh! I hadn't planned on it, I have now decided to get a video ipod. So, when I do, I shall tell you. Yes, that is a big purchase for me, $250. Whew! We'll see!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I was just telling my husband that I wanted to see that movie!! I love comedies!! It sounds like it was funny, so I will be checking it out for sure-thanks for the info =)

    It is very scary what people can do online. AND GET AWAY WITH. It angers me b/c I think the people that talk smack or bully others online get bullied in real life so they need to lash out on someone eles. It makes them feel better about themselves.

    Don't you worry about spending money on yourself!! You deserve it! Self Indulgence is good for you sometimes. What good is making money and living, if you can't enjoy it? Right? =)
