Spring is THE worst season in the world. I know many people love spring. Warm, beautiful weather is coming back. But I loathe spring with a passion. I suffer from awful allergies all year round but spring is the worst. Though it's still cool here in NJ the "nice" weather is beginning and my allergies are getting bad. I've woken up every day with a sinus headache for over a week. And unfortunately, my allergies get so bad in springtime that my usual allergy medicine doesn't help. What's worse is at this time of year, no medication helps. I wish we could go back to winter. No major allergies, and no bugs. I hate spring.

If you have never tried the Nancy Drew computer games and are a Nancy Drew fan, I highly suggest trying them. They are really good with puzzles that make you think. I own six of the 13 and plan to eventually buy them all. My favorite so far is number 9, Danger On Deception Island. But all of them are really good.

I don't normally use my blog to tout PC games but these are just too good and shouldn't be missed. Of course, I grew up with Nancy Drew so naturally I love having the chance to play as her. And you get to hear voices of other characters too. If you get stuck you can call and talk to Hannah, Ned, Bess & George and the Hardy Boys. In number 12, Secret Of The Old Clock you get to talk to Nancy's dad, Carsen Drew. It's really cool. And in number 13, Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon, you actually get to meet and work with Frank & Joe Hardy.

Number 14 isn't out yet but it will be called Danger By Design and takes Nancy to France where she must solve a high-fashion mystery. Since we got to meet the Hardy boys, who knows who we might meet next. Maybe Bess & George. A fashion mystery would definately be the perfect way to bring fashion nut Bess into it.:-)

I don't go to the theater much anymore to see movies. It's so expensive and since I don't work in the theater anymore I don't get to see movies for free. However, there are 3 movies coming out this spring and summer that I am dying to see and in fact will go to see while still in theaters.

1. Ice Age 2: This movie is the sequel to the first one. In this one, the ice age is coming to an end and a major meltdown is on its way. I loved the original and am so looking forward to this. It comes out the very last Friday of this month. I will see it the following Wednesday.

2. X-Men 3 The Last Stand: I LOVE the X-Men. I have seen all the movies and can't wait for this. I was so "Cyked" when I learned that it was going to be released this year instead of next. It comes the last week of May. I WILL be seeing it the first week of June. Anyone who saw X2 knows Jean Grey dies at the end. In X3 we have Dark Phoenix rising. Also, they have a cure for mutations. I've read interviews with the cast and crew and they are hinting at another main character being killed off at the end to be resurrected for X4. Yummy!!!

3. Garfield A Tale Of Two Kitties: The first "Garfield" movie was awesome in my opinion and I am so looking forward to this sequel. Garfield follows his owner to England where he gets mistaken for a royal kitty. This comes out in August. I can't wait.

That's my list of 3 movies coming out this summer that I intend to see. What movies are you planning on seeing?
