Broken Secrets

OMG...The Prestige looks sooooooo good!! Guess who's in it! CB!! Christain Bale, the guy who was in Batman and Little Women!! AHHH!!!

And....GREY'S ANATOMY....was good last night! Ack! McDreamy what he said to Meredith was so unbelievably cute!

The only thing that's depressing me right now is the White Sox who are just inches...maybe even millimeters away from being eliminated from the playoffs. And my poor hubby...Joey played horrible the last couple of days. *sigh* 'Tis not fair.

AND AND....guess what's coming out on Nov. 7th!!!! Josh Groban's new album "AWAKE!"
FINALLY!!

So, as you can probably tell I have returned from vacation all safe and sound. It was a fun trip nontheless with lots of swimming and lying on the beach.

I just recently had my birthday, yippee!! I turned 20 years old and got an iPod among many other White Sox related gifts.

I also went to my last White Sox game of the season on the 15th, which they lost terribly. I wasn't very happy with it and I had wished that my last game could've been a winner. I also am going to miss U.S. Cellular Field very much. It's such an awesome experience being there and knowing that this is where the World Champs PLAY. People who were lucky enough to score tickets to those 2 games played here in Chicago actually sat in those seats and watched those games play out.

Just even turning onto 35th and knowing that at the end of that street is the stadium gets me excited. Walking through the underpass and seeing the golden sides of the stadium with the black roof and hearing the music blaring out of people's cars as they're tailgating....it's great.

I'll miss it very much.

I will be going on vacation from July 17th - 24th to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. In the meantime, stay safe and cool, especially those who I work with at my job. You know who you are.

Ok, so it will almost be a week since I went to my first White Sox game of the '06 season. Let me tell you, it was such a wonderful feeling to be back there. I remember when we were trying to find the Cash Only parking lot, we drove right past U.S. Cellular Field and I remember feeling very nostalgic. I was thinking about last year and how we had won the World Series and how crazy it must've been that night on October 26th.

I also remember that after we were let in and we were climbing the huge ramps leading to the upper deck, I saw the first Grinder Rule stenciled into the wall....Grinder Rule #1: Win. Or Die Trying. I just couldn't help but smile. Then, my excitement rose even more when I was able to get peeks through the walls at the World Series banner. Even. More. Awesome.

The game was quite an experience as well, lasting into 11 innings with us coming out on top! I remember jumping up and screaming my head off when Iguchi hit a line shot past the Cleveland first baseman, scoring Pablo Ozuna and the winning run from second.

The Intro Video....the fireworks...actually getting to see the players on the field..it's something I'll never forget. U.S. Cellular Field is still one of the places I'd love to revisit again.

Despite the Sox losing yesterday, I found two things that brightened my day, er night:

OH SNAP!!

And, if you look at the second row of lines underneath the word "Central," there's a word there, "Chicago." Yeah, that's the White Sox last year. They never left first place standings in the Central. Just Awesome.

White Sox never leave first place

I have no respect for the Cubs...do not ask me about them.

Wow...what a Crosstown Classic. This was the first one I ever watched and it was unbelievable, especially with the brawl that ensued between A.J. "Pie" Pierzynski and Michael "1 Punch Champion" Barrett. The amazing thing about is that these two were long-time friends as this happened. Seriously, I don't even know why Michael did it, A.J. did nothing wrong. He needed to score the run and Michael was in his way, and the only way for him to do that was to plow him over. I think Michael was asking for it. There were some awesome pictures taken, including these two, one of which is f***ing unblelievable.





And the Aftermath:





The Sox lost the last game after a few miscommunicated errors by us which opened the door for THEM. We still won the series and that's all that matters.

Saw the Da Vinci Code on Friday and it was OK. It wasn't a great movie, but it wasn't a bad movie either. But, the book was definitely better. The movie left out things that I thought were important and the beginning of the movie with the crime scene and chase inside the Louvre was done in a really fast-paced manner which I thought seemed rushed.

I LOVE THE WHITE SOX!!!

I'm finally home free! School is out!! But now I have to work and this sucks, but I gotta do it. I hope I did alright in my Math class 'cuz I probably didn't pass the final.

Well, basically I've been watching every White Sox game there is and make sure you check out my secondary journal, Burning-Souls for all season-long coverage. I'm going to a game in August, I guess as a late b-day present. YAY!!

I've finally started reading The Da Vinci Code!! Omg...it's really good!! The movie's coming out next Friday and I'm definitely going to get tickets soon.

LOST...geez haven't talked about this in a while. The last two episodes were really freaky, I don't even know where to begin. The finale's coming up in a few weeks. That's all for now!
