Addicted to Itunes

Yesterday, my friend Bstab came down to visit and we exchanged belated birthday gifts.

Funny we both got each other ITUNES gift cards..

I have already used a large portion of my gift card. I don't know what my sudden addiction is.

I have downloaded
some stevie wonder songs I didn't have
some songs from polar express including "Hot Chocolate" my favorite
and a few others.

Thanks again Bstab..great minds think alike.

Car Sick from a movie

Yesterday I went with my minature in-laws and my husband to see polar express at the IMAX in 3D.

Now before I continue, I must say I loved the movie and the concept behind the movie. The movie for those of you who aren't familiar focuses on a kid who doesn't believe in Santa anymore and the polar express train that comes to take him to the North Pole to show him Santa really does exist.

The movie is animated with tom hanks doing many of the voices. He was also used as the human model for some of the characters.

Anyway, the movie was in 3D and we were given glasses upon arrival that slide perfectly over my glasses.

I like 3D , but because I have one eye that is nearsighted and what that is farsighted, it is hard for my eyes to focus together in 3D, which meant that some of the images were blurry even with the 3D glasses. I could handle that part.

What I wasn't prepared for was the fact that the 3D portions where the train was going fast down very steep inclines made me car sick....I seriously felt nauseous. It wasn't pleasant. For future scenes of that nature I closed my eyes and that seemed to have helped.

I shouldn't have been surpised by this occurance, I recall the same thing happening to my Mom at the Star Wars ride at Disney.
