A few pics from Trip - Typhoon Lagoon!

I am being an Allstar blogger this week, but i am sure i will soon have nothing to say - it comes and goes. :)

I just got these pictures from my trip to Florida - Nicky and i went to Typhoon Lagoon one day and had an underwater camera - We snorkled with SHARKS and Sting Rays - it wasn't dangerous - they weren't bigger than 5ft - but it was fun!

What is it about summer that makes going to the movies irresistible! I have certainly caught that bug this year! So here are some recommendations -

IRON MAN ROCKED MY WORLD!!!!! I had very low, no wait, i had NO expectations when i went to see it the first time (that's right i saw it more than once, three times actually) and there were like 10 people in the theater at the max - Nicky and i just got back from the water park in Florida and decided to try and catch a movie. We had popcorn a drink and were both so surprised by how fun it was. I strongly recommend seeing this if you haven't already - go in thinking it will be fun and that Robert Downey Jr. is FINE and you should enjoy it - oh and expect some fun blowing up scenes! (very deep movie - there is also a political stand taken - but try to not let that get in the way (i am always bugged when Hollywood tries to put their political spin on things whether i agree or not))

BABY MOMMA! Another movie I didn't expect to love. It was hilarious and really quite clean! I was so surprised - but i heard it was clean and funny, so i went with unknown expectations - Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hilarious as always - great laugh! Predictable ending, but fun.

CHRONICLES OF NARNIA PRINCE CASPIAN. I actually really liked it; i thought it was better than most second movies out there and i just love the story! I just saw this one two days ago - so i am still letting it settle in, but i did really like it and thought it was fun.

INDIANA JONES. Well, Harrison Ford still has it. The rest of the acting was pretty weak - and the writing seemed too fake for my liking. The old Indiana movies you could follow along with figuring out of the riddles where this time it felt like it was too ahhahish (if you understand that - maybe the word for it is coincidental (not that all movies aren't, but i like it to FEEL believable)). The action scenes were still really fun; the sci-fi theme/twist at the end was a little weird for me - but that is just personal; overall i would say fun, but seeing it once is enough.

Here are some to be excited about:

THE HAPPENING. I know it is going to be R, but it is M. Night Shyamalan - and he is an absolutely amazing director! The trailers, let alone his reputation, have sparked way to much interest in me to not at least attempt it.

THE DARK KNIGHT AKA BATMAN!!!! I don't think anyone can not be excited about this one; plus it will be interesting to see Heath Ledger in one of his last movies. It does look dark - so we will see.

HANCOCK Don't know much about this one, but Will Smith is so fun to watch and the trailer i saw looked good.

THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE It will be interesting to see this back again

HELL BOY II Please don't judge me, but i kind of want to see this too. Maybe i am just too into comic book characters :).

OK so my list can keep going but I will stop with July.

There is one more movie that has intrigued me; mainly because it is one of the scariest things I can actually think of happening. It is a honest to goodness horror movie; called the Strangers, and it opens this weekend. The trailers scare me and get my heart racing. I wouldn't be able to go to this one even if it weren't R (the theme is too real), it seems just that haunting/evil - i would say check it out, but why would i do that to you - more or less I am warning you :).

What defines me and you

I have been thinking recently what am i passionate about - i have friends who have their "thing" what is my "thing"?

I have always loved the ocean and all its creatures especially sharks - but i get sea sick and am not a huge science person i just find it fascinating- although i think i am going to certify in scuba this summer just so i can always have the option.

Always love cultural events - such as dancing, musicals, and musuems- danced growing up and enjoy going dancing every now and then (i am grateful to be able to hear a beat)- but not a talent i really am taking anywhere. Art always loved art class and still use it to release - but again where am i going to take that skill.

The stars have always been something that intrigues me - hello i went to space camp - but again not huge with science classes (although i loved my astronomy class -back in the day)

Within the past 5 years or so i have really started to love running - but don't aspire to be amazing at it or reach any record but to keep enjoying it.

Enjoy fashion - but think there needs to be limits in spending and it actually bugs me when i get consumed with material things.

Of coures i am all about Football - but i am chick - and it isn't more than something i enjoy and look forward to the season of (don't get me wrong some years i have gotten a little more out of control than others).

I love to travel - but it isn't what i think about myself when people ask me what my passion is - i just love going places - and right now in my life why wouldn't i travel (i think my next location may be Egypt and or Isreal but we will see).

I really like trying new food and cooking - I'm not a chef or a foodie; but i think it is fun and i especially like to stretch my ability even if it takes me 2 hours to make one thing

I do love being outside - and am trying to appreciate all the seasons and enjoy being outside in all of them (i have spring, summer and fall down - i just need to work on winter - hence the snowboard - hopefully that will keep the winter blues away a little better)

Do you see the confusion I really like a lot of things, but what is it that makes me tick i will keep trying to figure it out and will keep you posted on what i find - how do you all define yourself?

How much would you sacrifice?

I got this mass email today and I have seen some of these pictures and heard about some of the crazy things people do for fashion - but this is just too much.

Japanese fashion right now (supposedly - i want to not believe it - but the end pictures lead me to believe otherwise). It is like being on pointe all day - only not - no thank you!

I guess if this is your country's history of shoe fashion - the above look like slippers comparatively or at least your feet won't be completely deformed - ekk!

seriously this is just crazy go nuts!

My two roommates and one of our friends are going down to Orlando!!! We are all so so so excited, it will be so much fun! The goal is RELAX, play, have fun, but most importantly get some SUN and serious color - i better come back tan(er) or i might be tempted to move back to Hawaii where i know i can always have color ;).

I will post about it when i return, but this is the hotel we are staying at - we got a serious hook up with my job, it is nice to work for a hotel company (sometimes) - SO NICE!

Ok so that is the last little quiz for the day! Found a fun little website with a whole bunch of these, don't really know why i think they are so fun, but hey they are the best way to take a break and let my brain rest, hehe.

Your Love Style is Storge

For you, love and friendship are almost the same thing

But sometimes your love is not the most passionate

Leap before you look, and you'll find that fire you crave

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
