National Treasure: Book of Secrets~

National Treasure Book of Secrets

This movie was just released on DVD and is of course the Sequal to the first National Treasure.
It's Rated PG and about 2 hours long.
Me and my family watched this movie last night and I thought it was great! I think this one is actually better than the first, although I sat through it at one point when "the president" came into the picture and was just like... yea, that wouldn't happen!
It was still quite enjoyable and I caught myself on a few occasions screaming along with the actors with all the dangerous suspense!
It will have you on the edge of your seat!
I give this movie 10/10!

Pain at the Pump Growing Worse

Gas Prices

I, along with the rest of the country have been complaining that our little cars, like my Ford Focus which is good on gas mileage, have been paying $30.00 for a full tank of gas, opposed to the late 90's-2000 paying .99 cents per gallon and filling up a full tank for $10.00.

Well, this morning I've reached a milestone. With the soaring prices, I have been putting off filling up, but finally decided to today, knowing it will only get worse and a full tank TODAY cost me a whopping $40.00. And that is in a small car. I can't imagine the pain that it is putting people through with bigger gas hogs, although I bet they contimplate selling every day. One things for sure, we're making history.

Headline of the day: Gas Prices Climbing With No End in Sight

What a comforting though~

Kill With Me

As you know from my previous post, I have watched the movie untraceable and did a review on it in a previous post.

Well, I was just sitting around being bored, when I thought about trying to see if there was a website called, which there is! much to my surprise!

But it is AWESOME! it is based off the movie and its not scary, though it did creep me out :) it lets you be an agent and try to figure out how to shut down his website using clues to figure out the username and password.

Click ENTER and it will ask you a question: Answer honestly when you go there:
and then an FBI box will appear on the bottom right of the screen, click it and it explaines everything from there! it's sooo cool, check it out!

Movie Review: Untraceable

Untraceable (2008)

My Review:

Overall, I would say that this was a good movie, but you won't like it if you don't like to see graphic content like people's skin burning off, etc. The movie is VERY graphic in the torture of the victims in this movie, but the storyline was really good.


This is a movie about the section of the FBI that deal with people on the internet that give you viruses to get your information off your computer, how they catch them, etc. They find a particular website that streams live murders and they start their investigation, which proves harder than they imagined.
can't really tell you much more without giving away the movie, so go rent it! :)

Migraine Triggers and what to avoid

These are just a list of things that can cause migraines, so if you have them, it's best to try to avoid these thing:

1. missing meals
2. irregular meals
3. cigarette smoke
4. perfumes
5. bright lights
6. sunlight
7. stress
8. Depression
9. Prolonged concentration
10.birth control pills

My doctor also told me not to eat:
Hot Dogs
Chinese food
...among other things.

How to tell if you have migraines


I know before I was diagnosed, I didn't link two and two together, and for others like me that may be young and/ or uneducated on the topic, I have decided to post a list of things that may help you to know whether you may have them or not so you can better talk to your doctor about it.

First of all, if you are taking more than 2 over the counter pain medications per week, you have a problem and you should definitely see your doctor. I was taking over the counter meds for 3 years straight. It wasn't until all OTC medications seemed to stop working for me that I sought a doctor's help (by this time, I was at the end of my rope).


Migraine without Aura Symptoms: *

1. At least 5 headaches that fulfill criteria in #2 and #4
2. Headache lasting 4 to 72 hours (untreated or unsuccessfully treated)
3. Headache has at least 2 of the following characteristics:
a. unilateral location
b. pulsating pain
c. moderate or severe intensity (prohibits daily activity)
d. aggravation by or causing avoidance of routine physical activity

4. During headache, at least one of the following occurs:
a. Nausea and/or vomiting
b. Photophobia and phonophobia (sensitive to sunlight and/or noise)

5. At least one of the following is present:
a. History and physical and neurological examinations do suggest such disorder, but it is ruled out by appropriate investigations.
b. History and/or physical and/or neurologic examinations do suggest such disorder, but it is ruled out by appropriate investications.
c. Such disorder is present, but migraine attacks do not occur for the first time in close temporal relation to the disorder.

(*Adapted from Headache Classification Subcommittee of the International Headache Society, 2004)

If you do have these symptoms as I did, please see your doctor as soon as possible. This isn't pain that you can handle on your own.
