Batshit Crazy Bachmann
Strikes again

Wow, I become increasingly more embarrassed that Michelle Bachmann is a representative from MN. She has to have an IQ of 70. Here's the latest gem of a quote from her:

"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under Democrat President Jimmy Carter.
And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it is an interesting coincidence. "

Ummm...really? REALLY? First of all, don't say you're not blaming them, because what's the point otherwise? That it's an interesting fact? No. No, it is not interesting. It's not even that coincidental.

Plus, the last swine flu outbreak started under Republican Ford, so any bit of "interesting" that was maybe hiding in there somewhere is now gone. And Bachmann's still a friggin' idiot.

Vampires vs. Cults vs. Zombies

Three movies based on Richard Matheson's I Am Legend (1954):

The Last Man on Earth (1964): Vincent Price and vampires.

The Omega Man (1971): Charlton Heston and cult members.

I Am Legend (2007): Will Smith and zombies.

The Last Man on Earth is probably the most true to the novel. I enjoyed I Am Legend the most, even though certain aspects of it annoyed me. The Omega Man was probably the worst. Doesn't help that I'm not a big fan of Charlton Heston. Plus, the bad/infected people were really not scary and pretty stupid. Huh, I just read that a prequel to (the movie) I Am Legend is due in 2011.

Hey, Liz--you should get The Last Man on Earth from Netflix; it comes as a double feature along with Panic in Year Zero, which is another post-apocalyptic movie (nuclear-related). It's not bad, in an old movie sort of way.

Mundane Photos From Inside My Apt

Hey, everyone! Let's take a look inside my fridge! Well, if you want condiments or almost-expired milk, you're in luck! And let it be known that the drawers are completely empty, as well. You may wonder why I have two opened containers of ketchup and miracle whip. Answer: I don't know. And you can't see them, but there are a few bottles of beer in the back right corner on the top shelf. They've been there since the last time my Dad visited last September. Does beer get better with age? :D

Time to wash the mugs! I like mugs. They make me happy.

So, Miss USA, the trashy beauty pageant (are any of them not trashy?) was on last night. Apparently, Miss California is a douche. She was the front-runner until the question round, when she was asked (by Perez Hilton) if she thought states should allow gay marriage. Somewhere in between non-sensicle talk, she basically said, "No, I was raised to believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman." She ended up losing to Miss North Carolina (who didn't think that taxpayers should be bailing everyone out). Miss California later said she lost for standing up for what she believed in and giving an honest answer. I completely agree. And she lost because her honest answer showed that she's a bigot. I hope the judges wouldn't honor bigotry. I really want to find the transcript of her answer now, because it really sounded idiotic...(as if that's surprising)

Ok, here's the video: Miss California

Opposite marriage?? Hahaha!

It's supposed to snow tonight/tomorrow morning. But then the high is 81 on Friday.

I need to go do homework now.

We must destroy the Ring!!!
Oooops! We failed.

So, Joleen and Sunny are back, in case you didn't find out from me either telling you are by reading my Facebook status a bit ago. It was a surprising return, as they weren't expected until May.

Mom: Emily, you should really try to come home for Easter.
Me: I don't know. I'm really friggin' busy.
Mom: A package arrived from Joleen and she says you need to open it ASAP or it'll get ruined.
Me: Ok, whatever.
[Arrive at home]
Mom: Want to open your package? Here it is!
[I see a ginourmous box. WTF did they send me? I grab a pair of scissors]
Mom: You don't need scissors to open it!
Me: Umm, OK.
[Rip tape off box]
[Joleen pops out of box]
[I jump back 5 feet]
[Sunny appears from out of nowhere]

Yeah. I was a little annoyed that it was a decoy gift (I mean, I got my hopes up and all), but I guess this sufficed.

While in New Zealand, Joleen and Sunny climbed Mt. Doom. Which has a normal Enzed name, but I don't recall what it is. I guess it was pretty steep. Joleen kept telling Sunny that if they made it to the top, she was throwing his wedding ring into it. Hehe. Unfortunately, they're no Sam and Frodo and they failed in their quest. So look for Sauron and his minions to take over Earth soon. But anyway, they brought back a little piece of Mt. Doom for me. AWESOME! (Joleen, I left it at Mom and Dad's because Mom hid it under the family room table along with the chopsticks you gave me. Can you make sure they don't get lost?)

Mount Doom:

OK, so that's not exactly what it looked like when they climbed it. Here is the unaltered-by-me original photo:

And here's Joleen climbing up it:

Sauron's pull on the ring is strong. Watch out for Gollum!!
