Movie Watching

So, do you know that movie theater that used to be cool when it was brand new but now its not owned by a chain anymore… yea, the lack of fundage took me there. Well it was more my friends paying or me.

So as we arrive I see so many people hanging out outside, mind you it was freaking cold, that you would think they were giving away free ipods. The age demographic was from teenager to young adult, but the intelligence was around 5 or 6 year olds all around. We make our way through the croud, I am there with Aaron, built like a lineman for the bears, his sis and her boyfriend. People part way because face it, we already look annoyed enough to give a wedgie.

So I am perched just from looking at all the drooling that the nimrods were doing all around me and since I did not have to pay for the ticket I felt like a super sized 4 dollar Pop. I reach of the straws and see that the size of the straw is just not going to allow me to drink all of my pop… so I ask the only adult in the room working behind the counter for longer staws and I swear he looked at me like it was a huge revelation that the straws were too short. Then he said we don’t have any.

When we entered the theater I felt like I was entering a Olson twins concert or something. People were standing up and just talking at a volume that even for outside talking was too loud. “O’h my GoD, Britney come and sit over here.” Then the guys enter… Josh, Josh… hey man, where are you sitting. I am half hoping that they are all going to begin a makeout session with Britney and Tiffany, but no… the two doods sit together and start getting way too close for my confort.

Preview begin, and the noise level seems to rise… the projectionist turns the speakers so loud that the back speakers sound like they are going to come off the wall. As the volume for the previews go up so does the volumen of Britney’s and Tiffany’s conversation. Mind you there is not just a pair of Britney’s and Tiffany’s its a whole Mabeline Battalion… I am starting to wonder if they put some kind of weird compound on their make up… warning, putting this on your face will make your voice go to a pitch that can throw bats off course mid flight.

The movie is about to start and I’ve had enough. The people in front of me are probably just a little younger than I am and probably should have warned them. I took a deep breath and yelled “Sit down and Shut the f@ck up!” the guy in front of me said thanks and people started to applaude. The rest of the movie was not completely quiet, but it was at least manageable. Man do not ever want to go to the cheap theater again.

What do you think your favorite color reveals about your personality?
I think green reveals how much of a dreamer I am.

Taken for Granted

“An unexamined life is not worth living.”
-Socrates

Some years ago something horrible happened. An eight year old very close to my family became very ill with a nervous system disease and ended up living a shorter life than he ever should have. My Mom was very deeply affected by this event and has ever since reminded me that life is short and I should not take it for granted.

I am a dreamer and think that life should be lived happy every single day. While I understand how unrealistic that is I also believe that it is a good goal to have. If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, daily laughter should save as a trip to the therapist.

I have to agree with Socrates on his statement that you have to examine your life to make it worth it. It is important to look at your life and make sure that you are within your morals and beliefs as much as possible, and make sure that you are striving to achieve the goals you set.

We have all heard the quote “You don’t know what you have until is gone.” But to understand is true meaning you really have to have suffered a true loss. In the past couple of years I have lost some people very close to me and every single time it has reminded me not to take things for granted. Counting your blessing should be part of your daily routines, because you never know what tomorrow brings and it is important to appreciate and not take for granted all that you have.

Patriotic little bird

The U.S. has the mighty Bald Eagle, Colombia has the Andean Condor, national birds can be a beautiful symbol of determination, tenacity and a huge source of pride. Now British and Colombian scientist have discovered a new spicies of finch.

Yariguies Brush-Finch

This little bugger is actually wearing the Colombia flag (Como la ve!). I say that he will give the Condor a run for its money with the Colombian pride side, however a Condor can probably just make a snack of the little bird. Cool nonetheless. (originall posted over at Proyecto Colombia).

The power of music

One of the things that has made my life easier has been music. It has helped me throught some very rough times in my life. I am also lucky enough to be able to listen to music in a couple of different languages and understand not just the feelings that the melodies carry but the words.

Right now I am not in a good place emotionally, but I don’t like discussing my issues out in the public. Washing dirty laundry is not a communal thing since back in the medieval ages. However, I do have a couple of songs that have been stuck in my head and mirror how I am feeling. I will translate them and post them eventually but for now I am going to try to just post goofy stuff here and attempt to make you guys laugh.

For now, laugh at this little jewel… ah a candidate for a good @$$ wooping.
