What's the capitol of Alaska?

Tonight Lisa and I watched a movie that I liked. Not sure if was a good movie, but I liked it. This movie makes me think Napoleon Dynamite meets a movie with real subjects. Now before I go too far, I must say that the movie has some (a bit more than necessary (I mean a whole lot)) cursing. So, beware. (I am in no way endorsing this movie, only talking about it). The movie is Juno. If you haven't seen it and want to then I don’t want to ruin it for you...so close this page now, because I'm going forward with this blog. Juno deals with issues such as broken homes, teenage challenges, unexpected pregnancy, adoption, and so much more. I think what I liked was the complete and utter bluntness from the main character, Juno. She has a sense of compassion for people but also an innocent disregard for what anyone thinks of her. I think we may all have met someone like this. For some reason I find this very intriguing. Why? Again this movie tackles some pretty tough subjects and it may not end the way you want it to, but it may in-fact be a reflection of how certain things end up in this world. Warning: Tear jerk alert!!!! w/ a few laughs. Another thing I liked in this movie is the fantastic soundtrack…if you like the folk sound. This movie may not be for everyone, but if you do see it take from it what you like. (With your parents permission of course)

Why do all movies have to have a ton of cursing? It is so hard to find a movie these days! The story sounds great though! especially since I get to see in the life of teenagers more than some. hmmmm can I see the clean version?

I loved this movie. It was right up my alley. I loved the main character and all of the crazy thing that she has to say.

P.S. I also love orange Tic Tacs! Yum
