megsie is going to the best campground this weekend!!! i won't say the name, cuz that's *SPECIFICS* oooooh! but anyway, i'm jealous. i think we should be switched, cuz she's all bummed that she's gonna miss church sunday, and she's not even thinking about all the fun she's gonna have! not that i want to miss church, but i'd still be excited to go on a vacation. i promised her that i'll email her every day while she's gone, so she'll have a nice full inbox when she gets back. i think charlie might do it too. and maybe danna. i'm sorry, you probably don't know who they are. danna is part of a best friends trio with megsie and me, and charlie is danna's bro and megan's *ahem* friend. and i also promised her that our teen group will save her a spot at lunch, even though she won't be there. right across from charlie. ;-)

today i went to see the movie Cars. oh, boy! i get to do a movie review! okay, here goes:

another masterpiece by pixar. this being their seventh feature, i have to admit that i was skeptical about their success. i mean, every good movie company has at least one cringer, right? take disney for example; they've always been counted on for a good laugh, non-cheesy songs, and an enthralling family-friendly story, right? but if you take a look at their more recent efforts, they seem somewhat...lacking. (i'm thinking about Home On the Range. ouch!) and dreamworks has really had only a couple classics. but pixar manages to make memorable films again and again since Toy Story. Cars is no exception. when i heard the basic gist of the story from reviews, i thought it seemed a little cliche. it's not. the basic skeleton of the story is not a new one, but pixar brings such dramatic life to it, that when you watch it, you don't see that basic frame. you see truly lovable characters, a touching story, and tons of clever one-liners. it's a definite must see for anyone over five years old. in our group there was a 9-year-old at the youngest, and a 54-year-old at the oldest. we all loved it. i'm trying to think if there was anything wrong with it...hmm...well, that would move into the realm of opinion and personal taste, so i won't open that can of worms. oh, one more thing! the animated short before the movie was classic. so classic. so, in summary, kudos to pixar!

i got a pair of super-cute espadrilles! they have lacey toe and hemp-type heel. if you want to see them, go to and search for espadrilles. they're the ones that come in white or yellow. i got white cuz it's more versatile.
