After a week of not posting, and then just a bunch of movie reviews, it’s time to get back to “normal” posts. I’ve been working on the “About Me” page. It’s turning into more of a autobiography than a blurb. Me? Blathering on about myself? Whodathunkit! I hate to talk about myself. But I love to “explain” things… so that’s what it’s turned into. A huge explanation of how I got here: how could one person reach this level of fuckupedness in just 42 short years. Yeah, my About Me page is going to end up with Chapters.
Movie reviews are actually a good representation of what I’ve been doing lately. I go to the movies. A lot. It’s the closest I can get to me-time. A couple of blissfully quiet hours… well, The Expendables 2 was more blissfully shit blown up. But still more peaceful than home! Just kidding. Now that the kids are older, there’s not a lot of chaos. Especially during the summer. We’re a kicked back, easy going bunch. The kids don’t fight, they really do get along for the most part. I know I’m lucky. *knocks on wood*
I’ve been working out a lot more. When I go to the movies after work, I get home late enough that I bail on my workout. So yeah. That’s probably why I’ve been going more. Not cool, me. Not cool. So I’m going to have to lay off the movies a bit… sort of. Ok, probably not that much. But it’s not my fault!! There’s a whole slew comin’ out! I’m taking Sean and Skye to see ParaNorman tomorrow. It’s the last day of summer and I’m only working for a few hours in the morning. So we’ll see a matinee and I’ll still get my workouts in. No bailing there. But Thursday – OMG THURSDAY, I can hardly contain myself. JAWS (the ORIGINAL) is coming to our local theater for ONE NIGHT ONLY!! And I have been counting the days. For those who don’t know, it is my favorite movie in the whole world!! I was only 6 when it was originally released, so needless to say, my parents didn’t take me to see it. My father did (in a horrible lapse of judgement) let me watch it on cable when I was 8. I have been terrified/obsessed ever since. Yes, I’ve seen it literally hundreds of times on tv. But Jaws on the small scene is just so “less than”. It’s made for the FULL THEATER EXPERIENCE!! It’s the original summer blockbuster. And I am finally going to get to see it, in all its cinematic glory, in three short days! Days that will seem like the longest years of my life. I’m less anxious waiting for Santa!
Was I talking about other things? I don’t know, I’ve lost all focus. OMG JAWS!!! I won’t be able to sleep tonite at all now! Chant it with me: BRUCE BRUCE BRUCE!!! I saw on one of those Storage Wars/Treasure Hunters type reality shows that they’d located one of the Bruce models in an old salvage junk yard a couple of years ago. You have no idea (well, maybe an inkling now) how much I want to own that!! Someday, after I have married Brendan Fraser, he will buy it for me. That’s my fantasy life, right there.
