So, I have been negligent in posting recently. Sorry guys. I've been working my little (or not so little) tushy off. Wouldn't that be great if you could really do that? Put in a couple hours of overtime and the cellulite on your ass just disappears? Anyways, working working working. Which is kinda bad because I am feeling exhausted recently, but is good because it means that I will have money for our trip next month to EUROPE - which by the way I will be talking excessively about to everyone for probably the next month or so - as it is imminently approaching and of course afterwards I will be attacking everyone with pictures. So by the time a month is over you will be sooooo sick of hearing about it just whack me in the head with something to reset my brain so I will talk about something else.
Hmmm, what else have I done this week? Watched some movies. Some really bad movies. And some pretty good ones. Lets start with the bad ones because they're more fun to pick at :) I watched some Disney crap called Ice Princess. Anyone watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer the TV show? Michelle Trachtenburg (Buffy's sister) plays some science geek chick who becomes an figure skater. Need I say more? *retch retch barf barf* I am a sucker for renting movies with Buffy actors in them though - good or bad - I must watch them - this one fell into the 'why the hell did you make this movie Michelle?' category.
Next, Ice Age. Which believe it or not, I have been living in a bubble and hadn't seen it until this week. It was OK I guess. I was expecting more. The mammoth was funny though.
Next, I love Huckabees. I loved this movie. I wanted to watch it again right afterwards. It was funny, and smart, and the acting was good. You may have to watch it a couple of times as it is about existentialism. Don't worry if you don't know anything about it, as basically the movie explains both sides of the theory. I recommend this one.
And last, I watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2. It was exactly what I expected. Piraty talk, piraty sword fights, it was goofy, and a bit predictable (haha) but I enjoyed it. Mmmmmmm Johnny Depp. You can take me to your cabin where you don't have a dress anytime!!
I am looking forward to seeing the new Miyazaki movie, Tales of Earthsea. I will be watching it in Japanese and hopefully will be able to understand at least a small part of what the hell is going on. I have read the books so that should help a little.
And I will leave you with a pic from my friend Jean to warm your hearts. Its a santa statue. In a grocery store. It is not Christmas here. Hmmm, apparently blogger won't let me upload it. I'll update this post later with the pic.
