So I’m not quite in the blogging mood just yet, but I had started a post earlier this week and just used the draft as a springboard for a blog post. Then as I added to it my blogging mood came back a bit.
– I commented on the Facebook status of one of my favorite comedians this past weekend, and he responded to it. I’m positive it wasn’t one of his people sending me a courtesy response, he seems like the type of guy who will do that on his own. I loved it, it was like I had received a response from Johnny Depp. :) It was just a comment about the crazy Winter weather that’s been visiting more states this year and how it reminded us of “The Day After Tomorrow”, and how Dennis Quaid was miraculously and heroically able to outrun the cold.
– Bought another piece of exercise equipment this weekend, but it was much, much cheaper than the “ab circle pro” (under $20 instead of under $200). This one helps me work on my arms. I didn’t have to order it online or through a commercial, it was at the store. I love that thing, I can feel the burn.
– My mom – ah, my mother. She was climbing up and down a little ladder late last week, taking things off of the closet shelves (heavy crocks and stuff). She didn’t fall or anything, but she woke up some angry muscles and was in total pain the next day. After work on Friday I figured I’d buy her a new heating pad since we couldn’t find her old one. I bought one for myself too – I’m sure it’ll come in handy. Anyway, I’m glad I took the thing over to her that same day, because she could barely stand up straight. I also brought over some chocolate covered strawberries. I fussed and worried about her until she finally had enough and kicked me out. Hehe. But by now her back spasms are gone. She’s just sore but is moving around and getting better sleep.
– Saturday was just spent relaxing and watching TV. We were supposed to go to the movies that day, but my mom was still in pain (only much better). She was in better shape on Sunday, so we went to see “The Wolfman”. Dang I loved that movie. We both did, and I haven’t felt so uneasy and jumpy during a horror movie in a long time. Here are a few things to say:
1) Benicio del Torro – soft spoken and intense – he was perfect in this movie.
2) The transformation from man to werewolf in this movie looked just as painful as it did in “American Werewolf in London”, but it was just a little quicker. The clothes didn’t even need to be ripped off. Damn it. But the effects were amazing, and I loved their play on fog, shadows and suspense.
3) I was also amused that one of the towns people in “The Wolfman” was also one of the towns people in “American Werewolf in London”. Just…you know…older.
4) And then there’s Hugo Weaving as a Scotland Yard detective. He speaks in almost the same, deliberate tone as his character Agent Smith from “The Matrix” and also the king of the elves in “Lord of the Rings”. He’s great.
5) In the midst of the gore, I heard the hyper voices of little kids in the theater. Maybe they thought they stumbled into a Disney movie? Quite the contrary. Movies are rated “R” and “PG-13” for a reason.
6) Did I mention I totally loved this movie? Well I did. I might see it again and then I’ll definitely have to add it to my DVD collection.
That is all for now, I made it through my blogger’s block….I think.
