Some Thoughts

I meant to post this yesterday, but forgot, so here ya go! 
There's been a lot of things rolling around in my head these days.  Thought I would share.

First of all, on Osama Bin Laden (OBL).  I am very conflicted in my feelings as to his death.  Is the world a better place without his evil, yes.  Am I going to celebrate his death, NO!  Am I glad he's dead, well, honestly, yes, but I feel guilty about that.  I don't think celebrating a persons death is appropriate.  I also have NO interest in seeing the video, photos, or any kind of media of what happened that day.  I'm proud to be an American and I'm proud of our President for accomplishing something that has needed to be done, and I'm especially proud of the SEAL team who went in and did the job.  God Bless America! 

On the lighter side, I really, really love Star Wars.  So much so I have several copies of the movies.  The original trilogy (4, 5, and 6) as they were originally released in theaters on VHS, the updated original trilogy on VHS and on DVD, Episode 1 on DVD, then the new trilogy (1, 2, and 3) on DVD, which came in a set.  So, now we have yet again a NEW way to enjoy movies at home, the blu ray!  I promised my husband that I wouldn't get the new format as our blu ray will play DVDs, but yesterday is May the 4th.  And, in excellent Star Wars Fashion, they released the two trilogies on blu ray yesterday, May the 4th, Star Wars Day!  I love it, want it, and NEEEED it, but I will hold true to my promise not to by it. 

By the way, if anybody needs a Birthday Gift or Christmas Gift idea for me, maybe you could consider.... :)

Television.  I'm just about DONE with the shows they offer these days.  Glee was awesome, now not so much.  I still like it and watch it, but it's not up to its former glory.  The Event was not such a good event, which I was really hoping it would be!  Heroes, wow!  Started off so good, then so-so, then what?? then it ended with no close to any story line.  Bad Form!  So, all that's left is a bunch of so-so TV shows that I really don't care to follow and the dreaded reality shows.  Let me just say I HATE THEM!  I'm so sick of all the "fake" drama these people display to the world!  I don't want drama in my life, why the HECK am I gonna watch a bunch of whiners live out their so-called horrible lives.  I do like America Idol, and this season is way better than last season, and I LOVE J-LO!  Still watching the Office, but Michael Scott's last episode wasn't all that great, but still will watch to see where it goes.  Community really makes me laugh!  And, the little show after Glee, Raising Hope - OMG, that show is SO FUNNY!!  If you haven't seen it, just try it once, it's LOL funny to me!  Dean doesn't think so, but that's alright. 

For a few years, Dean and I had been watching all the season's of Lost.  Now, THAT was a GREAT SHOW!  We didn't actually watch while it was running on the network, but it was fun to watch a series from start to finish on DVD.  If you want to watch a really great series because the summer rerun / reality show season is coming up, I suggest that one!

That's all for now!  Love ya!
