The world has ended
Sunday. 7.29.07 11:33 pm
Another rant. Because this movie deserves it.
The trailer opens with the clarifying social groups and determining inferiority. Jesus, the name of the movie is "Bratz," you'd think that'd be enough of a clue. Sorry to disappoint, but only Transformers could pull off a jump to the silver screen. They were action figures. Dolls don't cut it. Barbie tried and only made it to DVD, I don't know how Bratz succeeded. Regardless, I'm bracing myself for a movie more mindless than Snakes on a Plane and even more ridiculous than Jump-In, which, by the way, I got on my birthday from some friends who I'm currently plotting to assassinate. Long story short: the retards trying to capitalize on this brainless franchise will surely fail because there is only one demographic that could possibly watch this movie, and hopefully parents eveywhere will realize the intense stupidity of Bratz and restrict their children from coming within a mile of a movie theater. Unless they're going to see Transformers.
Ok I'm done.
I have 911 PPS.
The only things I've really had time for lately are jump rope and building fences, both of which leave exhuasted by the day's end. Speaking of jump rope, I have a funny story, and by funny story I mean not. Pull up a chair and make some hot coco because this might be a while. Here's the rundown:
When you compete at Worlds, you do it with a group of four or five. My group was the best. Top notch, elite, spiffy, etc. Screw modesty, we were going to be the lead team on Hot Dog USA and had a chance winning Worlds. There was another group, also very talented, who recently lost their fourth jumper, meaning they were one short. By this time, I had been practicing pairs with Stephanie for over four weeks. Things had been going surprisingly smooth, we just seemed to click...but alas it was too good to be true. My coach ended pulling Stephanie from my group. This throws everything off. That's an understatement, it means my group will have to work three times as hard to even recover from losing Steph, let alone getting better. In speed relay, Steph will be replaced by someone incredibly slower. In four person freestyle, Steph will be replaced by someone less skilled. In double dutch speed, Steph will be replaced by me, who has never done this event competitively before. And trials is in January. I don't want to be selfish...I know that the other group would not have been able to do Worlds if Steph hadn't been put on their team. But jesus. We have so much to compensate for.
I guess I should be more optimistic, or at least pretend to be. But my nature tells me to think realistically. We are f*cked.
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
I'm not sure whether or not it would be worse if they just digitalized the Bratz, but either way it would still suck.
I have no sports experience so the most I can say is.... uh.... the... main point is to have fun... and uh... it doesn't matter if you win or lose or... Oh whatever. Just try not to kill yourself. :P

Well, what we saw of it was pretty big. We weren't terribly close to it (the boat captains are pretty timid when it comes to getting close to whales) but it was still cool.
And yes. Bratz looks like a terrible, brain-killing movie. Which means it will probably make a bundle of money.
The more I hear people talk about Transformers, the more I feel like a sane person in a world of crazies. That movie was extrordinarily average. The Die Hard movie totally pwned it for special effects and dialogue. It was cool looking I'll admit, but the cheezy over-the-top acting made me want to put sharp things up my nose.
But I digress.

And again.. I can't get it to load..
Why did your coach take her out of your team? Is he trying to sabotage you guys? Good luck with the extra effort and then new event.

Would you like some more PPS?
I think Bratz are funny/creepy. All about teaching our young girls to be whores/materialistic girliegirls. They need an engineer/scientist bratz doll. There was Dr. Barbie, and all of the other professions... like race car driver...

Good luck with the team.
And I dunno... the girl with the blue hair is kind'a pretty.. so is the black one( I wonder if she'll be a token. Hopenot. ) I dun plan to watch it or nothing.. but hey, ' Mean Girlz ' succeeded.

Oooo good luck. I hope you do well. :(
We've been working on the same episode for three weeks.
I know there's a spammer in my cbox. Oh well. I'll ignore it until I feel like deleting it.

OH . MY. WORD.
Oh look! Another clique movie! ....I just hope they don't play the preview for that before any movie I may see in the near future. EWWWWWWWWW.
The sad part is that the [majority of] parents will probably let their kids go see it anyways, even though it's totally retarded. Parents these days let their kids do just about whatever, as long as it keeps them from hating them, or gets them out of their hair. Parenting, it seems, has gone to the dogs. =/
Well, I'm sure you'll be able to adapt to your new team member - you had to when Steph first came in. I think you'll be fine. =)

Okay, I really, really hate that there is a BRATZ movie.

LOL, umm I guess so. Sometimes hotels are fun.. cuz you get to be away from home for awhile. & I guess I get along w/ my parents, SOMETIMES. My dad & I had a fight yesterday, but whatever! It doesn't last for a long time. So yeah.
