Wah wah wah

If you don’t like Everybody’s Fine, you are either a monster or Roger Ebert. I won’t make the offensive “or both” remark, but only because Ebert is so highly respected… for I don’t know, eating popcorn and critiquing movies he’s too bitter to understand. As for me, I’ll be bawling my eyes out in the corner for a few days. Share the post “Wah wah wah” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

Scissor-Gripped

These days, I feel like Johnny Depp is only doing Tim Burton movies out of politeness. Speaking of movies, I’m off to see the crazily-hyped Avatar tonight with Miklos. My boss’s treat. That’s the best kind. I hear Avatar is the best movie I’ve never seen and that it will blow me away, especially in 3D. Dear heavens. I’m reading A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon and I am in love with it so far. So many of the characters remind me of people … Continue reading

Busy busy bee

Things are hectic. Between working two jobs and setting up a business plan, I’ve failed a good friend: Danner. I barely update lately! So in apology, I give him this blog entry. The Price is Right has the unrelenting power to make a person who works two jobs still feel horribly under-employed. Time to pick up a third job and second business plan. Pearl says The Invention of Lying is a good movie. She told us most of the plot today, so I’m not sure … Continue reading

District 9

Not to knock District 9, but both before and after District 9 were better than District 9. But District 9 was okay for a silly alien flick. I guess. Although I think I slept through most of District 9. It’s 4 months til Christmas, god help us. Share the post “District 9” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

You’re the devil in me

We’re going to see District 9 tonight, which I know nothing about, except that there’s something about aliens (or Mary) involved in it. I’ll do it because Miklos’s sister is a peach and we have movie passes because of her. Went for sushi with Heather today for the first time in a while. It was refreshing, although we didn’t get to go to Sushi Jade because it’s now something of a condemned building instead of a restaurant. Which I kind of expected, after the last … Continue reading

Git in, ya dumb bastids!

I’ve just seen a Johnny Depp movie that I didn’t particularly like. It’s a sad day in the world of me; except for all the other happy things that have happened, I mean. Which is pretty much everything else. Earlier today, I was about to text a girl I know when the phone started ringing. Answered, and no one was there. Went to text that same person again, and the phone rang once more. Answered, and this time it was someone apologizing for hanging up … Continue reading

Whaat? Noo.

What’s that? It’s a beautiful day?? No need to look at the schedule then, I must be working! Apparently it’s going to be thundershowers tonight. Yesterday’s storm was frightening in its brevity. I don’t like when people overuse serious terms like ‘torrential downpour’, but it really was Niagara’s version of such a thing. For example, my tires were actually underwater up to the hubcaps as the car parked on the street, which was ridiculously flooded. Powerlines kept touching, making that cool electronic machine noise you … Continue reading

Played.

Quebec, at least the part of it I’ve been to as of this weekend, is beautifully scenic. Not horribly scenic by any means. I officially have a ‘Hang in There’ kitty on my wall in calendar form this month. This can only mean good things. Or at least that I’ll try to maintain some sanity. Rare is the day that I’m not out in the evening, and as such, I barely get to watch Jeopardy anymore. Miklos is hard, hard, hard at work, so I … Continue reading

Plans and Sleep

You ever look at a play-on-words so many times that the real word looks downright out of place the next time you see it? (Probably not.) Tonight, reading Vonnegut’s introduction to Bagombo Snuff Box, I came across the word “comatose”. Just looks weird to me now. The drive-in is fun. It is one of few situations where a station wagon dominates a much sexier car. Any car you can lie down in the back of on a pile of blankets and pillows to watch three … Continue reading

Fun Fact: I could write cover letters in my sleep by now. Last night, instead of pornography, Showcase had the movie SAW on. You know the one I’m talking about? Well, my sister who smokes pot liked it, so I didn’t think I would. But then my other sister who doesn’t smoke pot told me the whole series was pretty good for that kind of movie, so I decided to watch it. And damned if I didn’t think it was pretty all right. So all … Continue reading
