Love the New Independence Day Movie

There are only a few movies that I truly love. I am a sci fi, action adventure, horror kind of girl. Independence Day is one of those movies. It has all the action, as well we a great storyline.

I was so happy when they made a part two of the movie, but was slightly upset that Will Smith wasn’t in it. Although some of the old cast was there so that was a good thing. The continuing story line was amazing and left us with a possibility of another episode in the saga. Independence Day: Resurgence came out last month and I am going to see it on the Imax screen at the mall theatre this weekend!

One of the reasons I love these types of movies so much is that I believe there is more out there than just us. Although I do hope that if we are ever visited by such, they would be a lot more peaceful than the species in the movie. Truth be told, though the possibility of a peaceful visitation is slim. Much like Europeans “discovering” the Americas, we would be the Indians in the face of such advanced technology. However we can hope on a more benevolent society rather than something along the lines of what we see in the movies.

Getting My Halloween Costume Together

Halloween’s always been a big tradition with my friends. Every year, we have a potluck party and a contest on who will come to the party in the most outrageous and creative costume.

Last year, our male friend who dressed up as a pregnant nun won the contest. This year, I’m gonna try to win the contest by dressing against my personality. My friends know me as being very conservative and so this year, I’m gonna surprise them by getting a zombie costume. I’ve been looking online and there are some great makeup tricks to use to look like a zombie.

All the stores have Halloween costumes, makeup and props in their seasonal sections. I am going to shop around this weekend and see if I can put my zombie costume together so I’ll be ready in plenty of time for the party.

Exit polls

How much faith do you have in exit polls? Have you ever been approached by anyone asking who you voted for when you were finished voting? There have been a few times that I have been approached, and I have always declined the opportunity to say who I voted for. Secret ballot means secret ballot! And to be honest, I know I am surrounded by people in this town that usually support the political party that is not the political party that I usually vote for. I don’t need any animosity between myself and my neighbors over our political differences!

Today I learned about a website that has been started up called ballot snapshot. I decided to check it out, thinking that maybe I would consider using it after the next election if it seemed like an alternative to the traditional exit poll. I wouldn’t mind using that if it would not alienate me from my neighbors! Reading the website, I saw that it was already conducting a poll, in advance of the elections. I thought I would go ahead and participate.

Today’s questions (I assume the questions change from time to time, but I don’t know how often) was to choose between voting for Trump and Biden if they were the two candidates running for President. The other question was about believing a political story that was running on Fox News. I decided, just for fun, to participate in the poll. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it immediately showed the current results of the poll. I was also surprised at what the current results of the poll happened to be! I won’t tell you the results, I don’t want to spoil it for you if you want to do it yourself!

Have you ever heard of a seven string guitar?

I don’t like to think I’m “out of touch” but when Carl told me that he needed to buy some new strings for his 7 string guitars I thought he was joking! I laughed at thim and told him that this wasn’t April Fool’s Day! I felt rather foolish when he showed me one of his seven string guitars! I wonder if there are any popular bands that I’ve listened to where some of the musicians play a seven string guitar!
