Lucky in Ireland indeed

I guess that when it rains, it pours. Personally, the past few weeks of my study abroad adventure have not exactly gone smoothly. Between having a wallet, passport, iPod, and digital camera stolen on a weekend trip to London, the failure of MasterCard to replace my only credit card in a reasonable time period, and now the inability to turn my laptop on, I have seen brighter days.

The sunset and the flames

The first time the Williams’ house caught fire, the residents of Maple Drive came out of their homes in the middle of the night.

Losers in a half-shell

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Seriously, people, let us step back from the glorious memories of a childhood heroes, take a deep breath, and contemplate this for a second. Teenage . . . Mutant . . . Ninja. . . Turtles. Perhaps it is due to the state of our young minds when we first encountered these crime fighters, or simply the light-hearted goofiness of the old cartoon and live-action movies, but as a child I was able to overlook this interesting mix of words and simply enjoy the show.

Sandler reigns

I could watch Don Cheadle in just about anything. His affable, “aw,shucks” approach to film has earned him a special place in my cold, shriveled heart, and that takes some doing. Even in the midst of civil war slaughter, he remains a dewy-eyed Boy Scout without being sticky sweet.
