So I bought all of those movies and watched a bunch of them already!
Phantom of the Opera (fantastic!)
40 Days and 40 Nights (cute, not keeping)
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (cute, keeping)
In Good Company (ok, not keeping)
Plus Crash with Claudia.
That's a lot of movies. That's what happens when it's rainy/gloomy on a long holiday weekend. The cats enjoyed the snuggle time.
Claudia and I went to a friend's for his Memorial Day BBQ. We really didn't stay too long because neither of us knew a lot of people. Instead we saw Crash.
It was an incredible movie but if you're affected by other people's emotions, don't see it. Otherwise, it'll definitely make you think. And see the interconnectedness of life. Good stuff.
I'm not sure who was crying more by the end of the movie though - Claudia or me.
Snarfed from Sporty because the weather is making me a bit introspective...
A - Age you lost your virginity? - None of your biz.
B - Band listening to right now? - CSNY on Radio Paradise.
C - Dream car? - For a long time I wanted an Audi TT convertible. Then I liked the A4 convertible except it doesn't come in AWD. I'm not sure what my dream car is anymore.
D - Dad's name? - Pete.
E - Easiest person to make me laugh? - Gina, Claudia, :Brad:, the cats.
I went to Best Buy the other night - first time in a while - and bought a boatload of movies. I got some cheap flicks that I thought would be good for one watching and then I'll donate them to work (for the charity drives we have).
Phantom of the Opera
While You Were Sleeping
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
40 Days and 40 Nights
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the campy movie)
In Good Company
Gilmore Girls, Season 3
I'm watching Phantomm right now and it's just amazing. I bet it was glorious in the theaters.
More than 5,000 licensed drivers between the ages of 16 and 65 were administered a 20-question written test designed to measure basic knowledge about traffic laws and safety. They were also surveyed about their general driving habits.
Drivers in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states did worst. Twenty percent of test-takers failed there.
The state of Rhode Island leads the nation in driver cluelessness, according to the survey. The average test score there was 77, just eight points above a failing grade.
Those in neighboring Massachusetts were second worst and New Jersey, third worst.
Is it any wonder that car insurance is so damn expensive back there? :p
I've started dropping reads from my blogroll. The reason is that I'm interested in reading you but not necessarily your commenters. So if you're going to only publish an RSS feed that has your posts and comments, chances are I'm not going to read you anymore.
(I'd even take a partial post feed over one with comments.)
