Heather and I saw the movie "Hancock" today. Not a bad movie. A unique take on the superhero crazy world these days. Everything seems to be super hero this or comic book that. But Hancock goes a different way with it all. I do agree though with what many have said in the media that without "Will Smith" this project would not have amounted to much more than a flick like "Sky High". Although not "Batman the Dark Knight" it deserves a look at the local cinema. I have always liked Jason Bateman and he has done well recently in picking good projects to get involved with.

I really look forward though to the next works by Angelina and Brad. Brad's movie is based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons". Angie stars in the Changeling. Both have Oscar buzz to them. We will just have to wait and see. Brad's movie trailer can currently be viewed on trailers section.

Headed out today for lunch and a movie with our good friend Justin. We had lunch at Chili's which had some of the worst service I have ever seen. Oh well. All was made up though by the new Batman movie "The Dark Knight". What a heck of a good movie. Do not wait for video if you have the chance to see it on the big screen. I was very impressed by the last movie which started the series off anew. The job that Heath Ledger did of bringing the Joker to light was amazing. Everything honestly about the flick was amazing. It sure did not feel like a 2.5 hour flick.

The two movies I am really looking forward to next summer are the Star Trek movie and GI Joe. I am not normally into the Star Trek flicks but the darker path they are taking and the story being based while Kirk is in the academy should be cool. The casting looks superb. See the cast list at and search Star Trek. The character Sylar from Heroes plays young Spock. Also the casting of the GI Joe movie leads me to beleive it should also be a huge blockbuster. Only time will tell.

Right now Heather and I are sitting in bed watching the HBO series Carnivale on DVD. Not too bad. Heather likes it though.

Well we are keeping busy getting things ready for the big move stateside. Hopefully we will have the biggest thing, Heather's SUV, sold here very shortly and then we will not have anything to big to worry over.

Weather has been real bad here this year due to the lack of rain earlier this year. Dusty as heck almost daily. The heat is no real biggy as we are use to that. The dust though is a pain in the ass and covers everything here almost like a lite snow.

Congrats go out to my sister as she has brought a new baby into the world. I think my mom is beside her self and dancing around all the time till she gets the little bugger into her arms.

Looks like I will get the chance to visit my good friend Ben here shortly when we move back stateside. Picric and I will most likely head straight there and relax a bit before moving on up to Colorado Springs. Also we had to order the cars from Albuquerque as they still had some slots available for order. Denver said it was going to take 90-120 days which we were not ready to wait that long to get our cars.

My apologees for not writing in a little while.

Well here is the deal. I am currently living in Kuwait as a house husband as my wife finishes the final 2 months of her contract. Once completed we are on our way back to the states. Yes our travelling the world is coming to a hault and we are looking for a somewhat normal style of life. You know the kind. A house, jobs, cars, bills and who knows...maybe a kid or two.

We will be moving to Colorado which I am excited about. Supposedly Colorado Springs has more days of sunshine than anywhere else. This means I am going to get back into mountain biking. This is a long time love of mine but due to the places I have lived the past 7 years it has just not been possible. Also if anyone knows of a good beer league softball team in the area let me know.

As for a job/career for me.....well I have no real clue. EOD jobs in the area seem non-existant unless a Bomb Appraisal Officer (BAO) job opens up and I can swing it. I am looking at HRO, recruiting, lower or middle management, Safety, Sales, wine taster or calendar model. We are following Heather's career as it is a much more stable option. I may even just go to school for a year or two.

To combat the gass prices we are getting a couple of new Mini Coopers for our cars. They get 38 miles to the gallon on the highway. I am ordering them tonight hopefully. They will take 2 months to get made and shipped to the dealer.

Also Heather and I just got back from our vacation with her folks to Ireland and London. Had a great time. Heather and I also went to the Louvre in Paris enroute back here to the middle east. Weather was off and on rain but all in all a great time. Heather has more on this and other stuff at her blog. See links this site.

Well I guess thats it for now. Sorry for the lapse and I will try to do a better job of posting.
