“A simple friend thinks the friendship over when you have an argument. A real friend knows that it’s not a friendship until after you’ve had a fight.”

I pride myself in having a lot of friends, but I have lost 3 dear friends along the way. This quote speaks to me in a very painful kind of way because I remember those relationships and see how much I miss them. I do not regret what happened, but I do think that I learned a big deal from those situations.

I would like to think that now I am equipped to have a good friendship survive an argument. I sometimes work backwards from most people giving way too much trust in the beginning of the relationship and then when it is overstepped taking it all back. I know this is a somewhat unfair approach but it’s just my personality I guess.

I have very real friends, never thought I would meet some of them online but I sure did. Some of my closest friends (IRL) in real life now, I first met online. My closest group of friends is people that I met during college; we have formed very long lasting relationships from that period of time. Then I have the friends that I have met in the jobs that I’ve had.

My newest group of friends is the people I have met at church, and they are an excellent bunch that made me feel welcome from day one. We have tons in common and they are more of a family than a group of friends, so I truly feel blessed by having them in my life.

Now my dearest group of friends is my online buddies. Most of them I have met through blogging, but they have helped me get through some tough times in my life this year. I do not know what I would have done without some late chats from them. They kept me sane.

So how many different groups of friends do you have? Have any of the friendships you have now survived a fallout? How did you overcome that fallout?

Alien vs Predator (***)

Starring Sanaa Lathan, Raoul Bova, Lance Henriksen, Ewen Bremner, Colin Salmon, Tommy Flanagan, Joseph Rye, and Agathe De La Boulaye. The iconic monsters from two of the scariest film franchises ever battle each other for the first time on film. (Fox)

I am sure my line about lowering your expectations is getting old. After hearing from a couple of people that AvP was not that cool I lowered my expectations almost to none. One of the coolest things is that even at the end of the movie you really do not know who wins. Both monsters have the capabilities to just rip each other, even on a mano a mano battle.

The action was on a good level, and the effects were pretty cool. Nothing groundbreaking but it hit the spot. The lighting was a little dark, but I think Alien movies have always gone for that effect. The storyline had a couple of holes… for example the Predator movies have always centered on the hottest year in centuries… and this whole thing happens in a remote antartica location… but whatever I looked passed that.

If you have 10 bucks burning a hole in your pocket go see it in a theater, but I would wait for rental or the cheap theater if I was you.

Friday the 27th

Darn it, it was almost the 26th and I could have been like, hey is that double the 13th so is it like double supersticions. But enough with that, today the movie Hero is released on theaters. I sad GO WATCH IT NOW…. go buy a ticket online.

This weekend should be a blast, there is so much to do and I do not know what to pick. I would like to go see like 3 or 4 movies, but I also want to go see an expo of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The church is moving some things out of storage and I would like to go and help. Cannot forget to find out the details for that tonight.

So I think tonight a movie night is on the way, and then tomorrow we’ll see… I also need to do something about coming up with a workout schedule because I have been neglecting that, and I should not. I need to watch my Cholesterol. So come on, I want to know what everyone’s plans for the weekend are.

::Cool, blue mornings::

Onesome: Cool– Well, summer is almost gone (except for those Down Under who are expecting it soon), and the cooler weather is coming. …and other than those who live in places like Hawai’i, things are about to change. Which do you prefer, the coolness of Winter where you live or the warmth of your Summer?

Summer, I grew up in a tropical country where we have eternal summer. GIVE ME HEAT.

Twosome: Blue– Today’s softball: blue or green? Pick one! …okay, if it’s a tie (high or low), what color do you prefer for decorating or accents?

Green is my fav, but I love blue for decorating… or rather to fill spacesw with. Like the futton I have is blue, a lot of my glasses are blue, etc. Cobalt Blue.

Threesome: Mornings– Mornings, afternoons, evenings, nights… What’s your favorite time of day? …and what makes it so for you?

Morning person all the way, the earlier the better… more of the day to enjoy cuz I love the sunshine… which reminds me winter is coming and I will see hess sun :(
