Great weekend...

Let me start with movie reviews of the movies that were watched...

Cold Mountain. This was a GREAT movie. It did make me cry, and since it was the last one watched it left me wanting a comedy. But, if you haven't seen it I would say watch it!

The Departed was another really good movie. I would have changed the end of it. But, no one asked me! How can you not love a movie with Jack Nicholson? I love that guy!

The Babysitters was kinda weird and a little bit creepy. It was well written and well acted but I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. I know I kind of went to bed with a disturbed feeling after watching it!

Tropic Thunder imo is NOT the best comedy of the year. Having said that it wasn't terrible. I laughed quite a bit. And I always like a star studded cast, and it makes it funny when the stars are making fun of their own industry. I would say watch it, but maybe not in the expensive theater.

So, I woke up Saturday morning (at a friends apartment) thinking that the apartment was going to fall over. There was a really loud noise and the whole apartment shook, however, I was asleep after a late night so after opening my eyes looking around and seeing nothing worth noting. I closed my eyes and attempted to go back to sleep. Thinking if the apartment fell over at least we were on the top floor so I probably wouldn't be squished to death. Shortly after the earthquake/explosion. My friend came in picked up my cell phone and started dialing it. I said hey that's my phone who are you calling. The response was 911, someone is going to get hurt. WHAT is this some kind of dream? I guess the people in the apartment next door were in a huge fight throwing things screaming threatening to kill one another and slamming doors. My friend explained what was going on to the 911 operator and then went outside to let the cops know where to go, to avoid having them knock on the door. And making it obvious who called. It had settled down by the time the arrived and I guess the people had calmed down because no one was taken away or anything. My heart broke for them both, and I resisted the urge to go over there and talk to them both and let them know that kind of fighting is NOT healthy. Probably wouldn't have to listed to me anyway.
Other than that my weekend was very uneventful just fun times with old friends that is coming to an end. I'm a little bit sad about that. But, we'll see how it works out.
