...was the time from getting to the theater, to getting back to my friend's house. That was Thursday, or Friday, I don't know. I always get thrown off with the midnight showings to things. The Dark Knight was amazing! I drew this before I actually saw the movie. If I would have drawn a picture after it, I would have definitely done Joker. Heath Ledger was the best actor and best...thing (for back of a better word) in the whole movie. People ask me if this one was darker than Batman Begins. I don't really remember the first one, so I can't really tell you...

I did this after the movie. Pretty much what every little kid says when they spoof Batman. And yes, I did try to draw Joker, numerous times. One time he looked like a mix between a clown and Michael Jackson. Yeah... was not gonna' post that!!

Anyway, we (Joel, Matthew and I) drove to Pasadena on Thursday. After Batman I went to Stephen's. From there I went to my cousin's. Then for his birthday party we went to Speed Zone!! We did all the stuff there, it was awesome! And then played mini-golf...not my forte. Then Joel picked Matt and I up, and we went back to Irvine, The End.

Pirates of the Carribean.

This is probably the most visited ride on all my times at TinkerBell ville, I mean Disneyland. Seriously, she has taken Mickey's place! Alert the press, wait...whatever you do, don't do that.
Anyway, that's not why I'm posting. I love the Pirates' Ride! Nearly every time I go on it I see something I have never seen on it before. So, I always try to get to the front to look out and see new things. Don't worry, I won't tell you where the secret Mickeys are. There are a couple things I like about this drawing, probably my favorite one is that the fat people in the back of the boat are making it tip up. Hey, its kind of funny that I'm posting this picture during the summer, since this is one of the one times of the year that I can't go to the Disneyland. My pass is blocked for the summer.

Now, to get into that topic that I said I would get to in my last post. Thankfully this ride never has a very long line. Some other rides there...or other rides in general just take time. What? You wait 2 hours for a one minute ride? Well, it apparently it has worked. Knotts, Disneyland and Six Flags make a fortune on it! But you know what? Unless you are waiting around for Revolution, or the Peter Pan ride for that long, it's all worth it. Well, I'd better go while on that happy note and not get into the line for that stupid Pan ride. Man, that line is longer then Space Mountain's...

I've always heard time flies when you are having a good time. Well, this past week I have found that this is true. The only time it does not apply is when you are having "fun" waiting in line for something. But that's off the topic for now, but will be revisited in my next post.
Now as for the time being thrust through the universe, I spent the whole of last week (Monday 30 to Sunday 6) at the beach! And that's not the best part it was with all my Orange County church friends and my Pasadena church friends. Wow, what a time!
That amazing week was a battle with the elements. And just about all the elements caused to mess up the other ones. First off, we were at the beach so cold water was a bit of a battle, so water. There was fires burning right around the camp, a couple miles north. So, they needed the water. So, one day I'm right about to get in the shower and it doesn't Wind, wind was blowing all around which made the fires spread more and farther. Earth, ugh...well if you all didn't know I like things to be clean. "Why'd you go camping then, Ben?" you are asking.
Anyway, so I sort of already mentioned the problem with earth. Dirt and sand all over and no shower to clean off in before bed. Bahh!! Oh, well.
After all that long and fun camping I have been busy as a Ben. Bike riding all over town(s), going to the orthodontist, and going to the beach numerous times since the trip! Ahh, but I loved almost every second of it.
For those of you that were looking forward to some drawings today, we will get back to a normally scheduled programing in the next post.
'Till next time!
