I recently went to a midnight showing of Inception featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. All I have to say is...wait-for-it....WOW!! This movie is a must see!! Written by Christopher Nolan(which makes it a must see) who is an absolute genius...that or mentally insane is breath-taking to say the least. Tho, it is very complicated, so you must pay attention. But wow, that movie is one of the best I have ever seen. Must see it.

And working is what I am doing now. OH, wait. Before I go any further. CREATION WAS EPIC!!! I totally lost my voice and sounded even worse then a boy going thru puberty, which by the way is the goal of Creation. To lose ones voice before Sunday. Oh, yeah. Switchfoot was better than expected. The Newsboys were great even with a new look like Michael Tait.Most other bands were just okay, and Skillet, was of course, EPIC as always.
Oh, thought you guys would like to know who I was able to touch because I was able to get to the front row for a couple of shows...
I was able to touch: Tobymac on the shoulder,Michael Tait thigh(everyone said that on was kinda creepy, calve, and on his very expensive shoes, Duncan Phillips hand, and Kj-52's leg.
I swore never to wash my right hand again, but after being in the mosh pit, absolutely had too. GROSS!!! AAAHHHH!!! I think I still smell like that one big dude behind me.
Anyway, now I am in Montana staying at a friends house for two weeks so I can work for to weeks at a plany nursery, earn some money, and see my friends.
Oh, and I got married to Mckensey. And as soon as we got married we adopted a ladybug and named it Lady. sweeeeeeeet

I THINK EVERY MIDDLE EASTERN PERSON IS A FREAKIN TERRORIST!!!!
And it scares the ca-hoodles out of me even tho I have flown many times before. Truth. If I see too many middle eastern people I am sooooo off the plane. Its just not very funny. But, i found out that your chances of your plane being hijacked are about 1 in 18,228,009. You are more likely to die on the way to the airport then in the plane. Comforting? Kinda.
Still, it would be better if they had better snacks on those planes. Peanuts and pretzels just don't cut it.

A homeless man walks into a restaurant and sits down at the bar. He looks around and notices a man staring intently at a bowl of chili.
He asks the man, "Hey man, if your not going to eat that, can I have it?"
"Sure", the man says, "have at it".
The man passes the bowl of chili down and the homeless man digs in. About halfway thru, and he notices a dead mouse in the bowl.
He proceeds to throw-up back into the bowl.
The other man looks at him and says, "Yea, that's about as far as I got too".
OH!! FYI!! the number was 8, my favorite number?? did you know that?

But, anyhoo, see, I changed the URL of this blog in an attempt to rid my blog of those worthless, porn totin' chinease FREAKS!!! So far its seems to have been a success, no porn comments yet!!! Its a porn free blog!! If only the world would follow suite.
So, two cd's I recently got, Trip Lee's Between Two Worlds, and Breaking Benjamin's Dear Agony are quite amazingly Epic. With Trip Lee's throwing the bible at your face without fail(i mean that in a good way), and Breaking Benjamin just having a good ole rocking out, I have enjoyed listening to them.

Oh well, whenever you have a bad day(or year), just remember, THERE'S ANOTHER ONE COMING TOMORROW!!!
Anyhoo, we did, in fact finally celebrate my 16th by going out for pizza, and now I am waiting for us to watch the Book of Eli. I have already seen it, but I just HAD to have my parents see it. So far for my 16th I have gotten two cd's, money, and the Book of Eli(thanks mitch) too top it all off. But it was funny, as of lately, I have been feeling very lonely. I really just have no friends that I can be with right now, and it sucks. Plain and simple. Not to mention it seems like everyone has a *someone* but me, and the friends I used to have are growing up without me. So, all that being said, I tried to call around to see if any of my CA buddies(in the truest-not-yet-friends-sense of the word) wanted/could go with us while we celebrated, and NOT ONE COULD. I felt like God was hammering in the loneliness.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
