Super Bowl?

This is Ariel's idea of a super bowl, hehe. Yeah, so we aren't football people, but I may try and catch the half time show. I think they said its gonna be Prince.

We didn't get to church this morning. I had a sleepless night, not sure if it was a full moon or not, which could be the reason. I ended up watching one of my fav movies, Sneakers, in bed till I fell asleep again. Heck, Ariel slept better than I did. Sheesh.

Poor Ariel is having a fit this morning. Those dang teeth better show up soon. Poor girl is so sore, and its hard to watch. We have tried pretty much everything to help. Blah.

Last night Ann came by to pick up the disc with the final yearbook cover design I did for her. She is graduating from UBC's dentist program this spring, YAY. They apparently have been working on this book for the past 4 years. She asked if I'd help with a cover, so I got something together for them to their liking. It will be neat to see it printed. Takes me back to grade 12 yearbook class. That was 10 years ago, I still can't get over that. Ann also mentioned that she may move to Alberta for a few years. Seems to be the trend these days. She mentioned that Gwen is looking at Saskatchewan for doing her Masters. Wow. I must get her to find Corner Gas for me. Heheh.

Stupid car is back at the shop, thats all I want to say about that. I miss the days without a car, I really don't like them, I am a foot traffic girl all the way. They need to get those Star Trek transporters to become a reality. I do miss my car, but I don't miss the trouble he has been lately.

Ok, one thing has been bugging me for the past week ever since I saw the trailer on tv. Bridge to Terabithia, any of you remember reading this book in school? They are marketing this as some happy, fantasy movie, when its really a really tragic, sad story. I think they are doing this to get the kids in that loved Narnia, but they will be surprised when those scenes last maybe 10 minutes tops. Market it as the story it is, not what people would like it to be.

I got the hallway cleared of all the yard sale bags and moved them to the storage room. Dang we are getting rid of a lot of stuff. Feels good. Yay. Only a few areas left to go through. As for now, Ariel is sleeping.... huzzah.

EDIT: Trying something new, what does everyone think? Still a few bugs to work out... but thats typical with silly blogger!

Ooooh my gosh! I'm so with you on the Bridge to Terabithia (sp?). That book made me bawl my eyes out and it looks all happy and fun and carefree in the previews. Liars! My husband has never read it and when he saw the preview he was like "Okay, wannabe Narnia!" and I was like "It's NOTHING like Narnia!" Sigh.
Ariel looks so cute in the bowl. It really is a Super Bowl. =)

Yup, I totally agree with what you said about Bridge to Terabithia! I LOVE the book, but the movie makes it seem like a completely different story! I sincerely hope they've stayed true to the plot of the book and haven't completely changed everything!

I love your new blog-look! It's fantastic!

Yeah, I couldn't believe they were advertising the same book I read in elementary school. What a gimic.

Hey, I used to love sitting in my parents big bowl! Cute.
Maybe it's just my computer screen, but I'm not getting enough contrast between the lettering and the background. I can't see the links at the side or beneath each post until I scroll over them, and I have to squint to read your titles. Even the main content is more difficult to read, but it seems like maybe this isn't the case on other people's screens?
Love the picture of you and Ariel at the top though.

Thanks for the comments, and the thoughts that we are all thinking the same thing about that movie, weird.

Katrina, might be your screen cuz I can see everything on mine. I did however, change some of the colors to help see things for you and others that may have had the same issue. :)
