Numbero Uno!

Aiiiiiight. Welcome to Kates Blog. I've been meaning to do this for a really long time.. just really haven't gotten around to it. New and Exciting things in my life.....

A: I got a job!! YAAAY!! I'M USEFUL!!!
I got a job working for an international truck manufacturing company in Ottawa KS. I enjoy it, and the people I work with are fantastic.

B: I just saw Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. (yes, i know you non-seers are jealous)
Lucas released his latest Star Wars movie, Revenge of the Sith, Episode III. I'm a purist, I'll be honest.. I wasn't exactly excited about the new movies in general when they started coming out... but in retrospect, after seeing all three of the new era in Star Wars filmmaking... they weren't so bad. (Hides her head) Lucas has always been about taking things to a new level (THX sound, ILM) and I really feel as though he's done as good a job as he could do making prequels 30 years later. The technology is quite different, and I was quite eager to see the most recent one so that I could finally make my decision on the new Star Wars... Does Lucas pull it together into a cohesive visual story that people 30 years ago and in the present can find meaning and power in??

Kates opinion.... Yes. I'm not gonna leave any grey that people can nitpick over later... I truly think that George Lucas did a good job with his epic story. I could have wished he had released them all in the same relative time period... but considering that setback, the Star Wars Sextology (holla if ya'll figure out a better term... but I kinda like this one) still manages to fit together in a visual way (which was my biggest fear) So....I approve.

C: I'm reading The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe (by Douglas Adams) and it's following sequels... I'm in Life, The Universe, and Everything right now... Quite good books... blends two of my favorite genres together in a fabulous way... Sci-fi meets Monty Python/British humor... I love it.

D:...... Umm... that's just about all I can think of that's exciting going on right about now.

Ok.. tha's quite enough out of me to start with.
