A Good Ole Fashioned Drive In Movie!

I've only ever been to one drive in and that was in university for a 4 movie extravaganza. We stayed all night and fell asleep for parts of it. This time, we went to Pirates of the Carribbean - At World's End at the drive in on 9th line in Oakville. This place is like a time warp. You can tell it's been around for eons and the people who go there have been doing it in their families for generations. The theatre plays ads from the 50s for a retro kitch feel and the old listening posts have been left in place to mark the parking spots. Unfortunately, the invention of the hatchback SUV and minivan make for less than stellar viewing as ignorant and or rude people don't care if they are blocking anyone's view. It's cool that you pay for two movies, but in our case, the second one was a boring teen flick, so we left.

Even though it's almost the end of May, I'm going to include my review for Pirates III here:

Good special effects, great costumes, confusing plot (couldn't recall the last two movies that well, recommend you watch them beforehand if you have the time) and make sure you stay until the last of the end credits have played for an additional scene. There is an obvious opening for a fourth movie, but I can't imagine Johnny Depp would make that kind of artistic choice. It's pretty long at 2 hours and 50 minutes, which was not so fun while cramped in a car. One of these days I'll have to watch the three back to back on DVD just so I can follow the plot better. The first movie is still the best, as usual, but this third one was highly watchable especially with Orlando Bloom burning up the celuloid.

New Short Hair for summer!

Love this cut. It'll be nice not to have hair sticking to the back of my neck during the hot days of summer.

Gaaahhhh, what were they THINKING!

Melinda, Melinda, were robbed! By a youth obsessed culture (you are only 29 for crying out loud) with no taste. Jordan is clearly too young for her instant fame, and Blake would have made an excellent number 2 to your talent. It's a crying shame, the finale is going to be boring, dull and dismal. Hope you make an album! Although I have never bought any recording made by an Idol finalist, I would buy yours. Judge Jru will be so disappointed.

The social networking site that has taken the world (and definitely Toronto - which has been named facebook captial of the world) by storm. Can't sleep and have a few things to get off my chest about it.


Re-connect with old friends
Get updates on how people are doing
User friendly and a good way to while away time


Somewhat addictive
Feel like I'm in high school again, with all the people adding and deleting themselves on my list
Shocked by some of the people who are not interested in adding me as their friend, even though there is an obvious connection (well I guess to me, not to them).

I've thought about some stuff.

I am at the top of most people's lists because my last name starts with "A". When a person's pic and name come up every time you click on your friends list and you say "oh, I'm not really friends with her, why is she on my list again?", it's easy to hit delete.

I don't need to be e-friends with people who don't want to be e-friends with me. In fact I don't need to be friends with them in real life either.

I shouldn't take it to heart, there are always other reasons for things.

These are all good things to think about, and a healthy way to look at using a site that can at times be hurtful or confusing. Here's the thing though...I still feel bad when certain things happen. I need to look at the fact that this isn't necessarily the healthiest site to be participating on. But then again, lavalife was no picnic much of the time and I managed to get through that.

I'm just confused, frustrated, perplexed, wondering and flabbergasted at some of the facebook goings on.

Feel better now that I've vented.
