Penguins don't fall in love

I won tickets to the new independent and Art Films Theatre down on Mainstreet. So I took my little brother to see March of the Penguins. This was a National Geographic Film and it was narrorated by Morgan Freeman.
It was of course evolutionary, but the most annoying thing to me was that they kept mentioning that penguins fall in love. They mentioned it three times. It was not love it was mating season. The portion of this film/documentary that showed two penguins mating and then dramatized it with music in the background like they do with a love scenes in other movies was absolutely ridiculous. I hope it went over my little brothers head.
Now that I've gotten that rant out of the way I can go onto real news.

Kimberly, is back from music camp. She was only there for 3 1/2 days. We went to the concert they had on Thursday. Now she is playing different songs that they learned at the music camp.

I've been shopping for books online. I bought about five of my textbooks used online. Three of them came in yesterday. They were my philosophy textbooks. I started The Lord of the Rings and Philosophy this morning. My Intro to Philosophy class will be dealing with The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a few Star Trek episodes. I have books for The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I already just finished reading Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince. So I have time to start reading my textbooks. I want to see what these books are like.

Bethany and Joe celebrated their one year wedding anniversary on July 31. Happy anniversary! They went on a picnic and we went to our grandparents house. We gave my grandmother a bunch of Avon products as an early birthday gift. Her real birthday is August 8.

I'm babysitting three boys today. None of them are good but I could not just turn down a babysitting job when I need the money. Hopefully, I will be able to go look for new clothes for the fall or get a haircut sometime later this week because I won't have time to do it today.

I'll end with an brief quote from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve --Bilbo Baggins
