What the hell was that?

Could James Cameron have been any more heavy handed with his political and enviroment messages? It was hard to watch at the end because the dialogue and plot got borderline unbearable. I don't mind subtle plot points and the occasional lecture but Avatar was so over the top I groaned several times during the movie, bah. The special effects were pretty good and worth watching on the big screen AND in 3D so I would go see the movie just because of that (which is why I did) but don't expect a lot from the plot. I don't think this movie will stand the test of time like Star Wars has simply because it's going to get passed by quickly with movies that have much better plots.

Our team party was on Friday and it was held at a small glass blowing company called glassybaby that sells high end candle holders and glasses (tumblers). I bought two just so people would stop hassling me but at $40 a piece I wish they would have come with $20 worth of something to offset the insane cost of 2 at $88. SOB!

After missing Big Brother / Big Sister for a few weeks due to x-mas vacation, my trip to the midwest, and various other school holidays, I got back to elementary school for the second time in 2010. He's a good kid who needs somebody to talk too and he seemed genuinely excited to get a fridge magnet. BBBS is a neat program with various levels of involvment and I would recommend it to people who want to volunteer in small way. It's one long lunch a week.

I need to post pictures soon. I'll try to do that this week.
