Lemony News... 

KT and I enjoyed watching Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events last night in Chinatown. I totally enjoyed the settings and props throughout this movie.

Of course, we all know that movies have a different version than the books. However, this particular version worked really well and loved how they added things here and there.

Jim Carrey did a wonderful job as Count Olaf. He was the perfect actor for this character. I believe that his experience with acting as such odd or bizarre characters like The Grinch, The Mask and Ace Ventura made him so good for Count Olaf. When I continue reading the Lemony Snicket series, I'll definitely have Jim Carrey in my mind when I come across Count Olaf.


What is going on?!? I'm talking about Bush's $2.57 trillon dollar budget proposal that will cut or close a lot of programs. The bulk of this money will go to the military and homeland security.

He says that "it's a budget that focuses on results". Yeah, we want results but will this proposal will actually bring results?!?!


Turning Down the Volume is an interesting article about HUGS at Gallaudet University. You'll need an account with Washington Post to view the article.


Banning of smoking in public places is starting to catch on...globally. Parts of the US have banned smoking in buildings and whatnots. Ireland has banned smoking in pubs, although it seems to not really be enforced. Now, Cuba has banned smoking in public places. Ah, the world will be a bit cleaner to breathe in some fresh air.

Gay marriage has been banned in Virginia. This is really sad to hear and yet, not surprising. Virgina was the last state to recognize interracial marriages. Anyways, opponents have compared the ban to Nazism.

We have a long hard battle to fight and we must persevere.


"Think Ink, Not Mink" Dennis Rodman has posed nude (sideways) in an ad for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). This ad has sparked talks among people, especially in the field of professional sports.

Mercedes-Benz, under pressure from PETA, is now offering leather-free options for seats, using fabric or synthetic leather.


Well, that's all for now. ta ta...
