Vantage Point...I'd say, save your money until it is on TV for free. It was too confusing and not that entertaining. Sometimes Wayne and I are split on our views of movies (He thinks I like allot of crap)but, on this one we agree. I'm actually mad we spent our money on it. Thankfully, we went to a matinee!
Jumper...LOVED IT! Hayden Christensen(young Darth Vadar)stars and does very well carrying this movie. It was very fun and entertaining. The story was good and made you wish you could be a Jumper yourself. How fun life would be if you could really do that! Of course having something (or someone) to look at that is easy on the eyes helps too!
We then came home and watched We Are The Night. This movie is about the Russian mod in New York City. It stars Mark Walberg, Joaquin Phoenix, and Robert Duvall. The movie was really good. It is based on a true events that took place in the late 1970's early 1980's. Well worth the rental fee. I remember not hearing much about this movie when it was out...which wasn't for very long.
So, there you go a quick update. Once I get my pictures together from my Vegas trip, I'll be sure to post something about it. I will say it was allot of fun and I enjoyed my stay with Shahzan and her family.

So we went today and saw the movie, "There Will Be Blood. It is an adaptation of the Upton Sinclair book Oil. I have never read that book but now I think I will have to go and check it out! The movie was very good. Not as violent as I had heard it was. I'm sure Daniel Day Lewis will win the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance.
I like seeing how industries started and just how ruthless the people were who actually helped to make this country what it is or was today. I know that most people like to believe that everything was done all nice and pretty and without break laws or compromising ones values. Of course, anyone knows if you truly want to be someone of real wealth or importance, you will need to compromise yourself and your values to attain this. If you ever read anything about American History...no, not just what you learned in school. You will see that most people were cruel and ruthless when it came to getting what they wanted and for the betterment of this nation. I for one can say that I'm happy those men and woman all those years ago did what they did!

So it seems like a typical February for the Chicagoland area. Snow, snow and huge pot holes that are sucking in cars right off the roads! I swear, it is all you can do to miss them. In fact there have been a few I didn't miss and I feel lucky that I didn't flatten a tire. It always surprises me that people are shocked that there is a snow storm or we are getting so much snow. Doesn't this happen most February's in this area? Either way, I love the snow. It is so pretty outside right now. Of course my drive home from work wasn't so pretty but, I did get out 5 hours early so I had plenty of time to get home safe and sound. Luckily with my job and where I work, we have that option. Also, if the weather is really bad in the morning, I have the option of working from home. One of the many perks of having a lap top and high speed connection!

So on to better and more fun news....I will be going to Veags for the WPMA Convention 2/19 - 2/21. Then I am going to stay untill Sunday and hang out with my friend Shazhan who moved out there a few years ago and I haven't seen since she moved. I am very excited to get to see her and meet her son.
So, the moral of this story...even though I might be having a rough time of it at work with technology, I will get to go on a business trip to Vegas!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!
P.S. If anyone would like me to gamble for them out there, let me know and I'll give you my address to send the check too!
