I am a great fan of Google. It’s a very helpful search engine who’s been my friend ever since I started my college days. Right now, I’m doing a search on birthday party games for my daughter’s birthday on February 13 using Google. Then, while I’m checking Mybloglog account, I saw Megite’s site. I’ve checked out this site, and I’ve found very informative articles, very up-to-date. The latest info there is about the launch of Wikiseek, a vastly improved search engine for Wikipedia (another favorite reference site). I’ve also found some discussions on this topic such as “Wikiseek as a threat to the Google Empire”. Well, there’s so much to happen in the future. Let’s just wait and see who will reign over.
Fun and Tearful Weekend
I’ve just finished doing my powerpoint presentation for my laboratory class this afternoon. So now, I have time to update my blog. I was not able to do so during the weekend, for I spent most of my time playing with my pretty daughter, Zoe. That was really fun! Also, JE, Zoe and I have watched two movies, namely: Sandlot2 and Click.
Let me tell you something about those movies if you haven’t watched them.
Sandlot is about a group of kids playing softball. This game is just like baseball to me. I’m not a sporty girl, so I don’t know the difference (need to research on that one).
Here’s the synopsis (courtesy of my favorite site – www.wikipedia.org):
“The movie is set in 1972, 10 years after the events of The Sandlot. New kids have moved into the neighborhood of San Fernando Valley in
One day, when the kids’ ball goes over the large fence of Mr. Mertle and they try to retrieve it, Johnnie makes them stop by showing them that there’s something descended from the Beast on the other side, called “The Great Fear.” That night, Johnnie tells them the story of the Great Fear, how it used to be a junkyard dog, eating or hurting others who trespassed the junk yard. There was a boy who loved the comic book hero named Rapid Rocket, and would run around fast like him. On his first day of school, he went past Mr. Mertle’s house but forgot to lock the back gate, and The Great Fear got out and chased the boy. It was unknown what happened to him after he was cornered by the killer dog at the junkyard. Soon afterward, a fence made of assorted junk was built on top of Mr. Mertle’s fence, and he was ordered by the officials to keep the dog locked up forever. Ever since, if anything went over the fence, it would not come out.
The main conflict comes when the space rocket for the future of NASA and the
This movie is just fine, we picked this one for Zoe would be watching with us, and we wanted a movie that doesn’t have kissing scenes and adult scenes (though this movie has one kissing scene, just before the ending). In a scale of 10, I would give this movie a 6. If you want to know more about this movie, you can visit these sites: Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb (Earth’s Biggest Movie Database).
Another movie that we have watched is a movie of Adam Sandler, “Click”. This movie really made me cry…
I know that most of you had watched this movie, so I won’t include the plot here. For photos, trailer, and if you want to know the plo of the story, you can go to these helpful links: about:humor and counting down.
I really love weekends! I can spend quality time with my family, and I got to watch movies I didn’t see inside a moviehouse. I always look forward to this part of the week.
