Time to Join the Fun!

Well my family has been blogging for a couple years now. Both my parents have their own blogs, my aunts and uncles have blogs, a few of my cousins have blogs, so I thought I would finally join in on all the fun!

Don't know why I finally decided to do this. Maybe it was because I have too much time on my hands to finally devote the time needed to run my own blog? Maybe I was just getting bored? Maybe I have so lots of things on my mind that I wish to share? Or maybe it's been months since my dad last hounded me to start my own blog, so I finally decided to do it?

Or all of the above, you take your pick.

Really I don't know the point of my blog or why I'm doing this, but I was sitting bored this morning playing Game Cube in the Youth Center at work trying to pass the time away before the second part of my split-shift started thinking about lots of things. I was thinking about the movie I saw last night with my girlfriend Maggie and formulating a review for the movie in my head. I was thinking about the mess that has become the Presidential election here in the United States with five months to go, and we haven't even reached the "general" election yet! Mostly, I was thinking about how my 17-year-old brother will be leaving next weekend to go to the Crossmen for two-and-a-half months and then heading straight to college at Louisiana State University, meaning that I won't see him again until later this year!

I realized that this would be a good way for me to communicate with Josh while he is away at college so that we're not playing phone tag, since I'm regularly out late into the evening and might miss any phone calls he might make home just to say hi. So that was my finally motivation to start blogging; to keep up with my little brother while he's away at college.

I don't know how regularly I'll post, but I plan on posting my thoughts and feelings on things such as the election and anything else that goes on in the world of politics, things that go on at work, a funny story that might have taken place during the day, a joke I might have heard, a review on a new music CD or soundtrack, or a review of a movie that I've just seen. In fact, count on plenty of reviews, because I went to the movie theater almost 40 times in 2007! While I'm nowhere close to that count this year (I'm only at 7 trips) you can still count on plenty of reviews, even if it's not a recent release. It could be something that's been out for a while or something that I've just recently decided to revisit and post my comments on it.

So what's up-and-coming? Well, I'm currently working on a review for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, so if you're interested in that, feel free to come back and check in. As for that, I really don't know. That's all I have for now.

By the way, I struggled with the name for my blog before finally settling on something that will hopefully demonstrate my quirky sense of humor!

I'll add my two cents. Since I don't see you around quite so much any more, this may be a good way to find out what you're doing these days. :)

Welcome to blogging. Good to see you this weekend, be sure to add my blog to your favorites. With that in mind, I will try to update more regularly.

I will also look forward to your review of KOTCS. Hopefully, by the time you post, I will have seen it.
