List of five|
The other day at work one of my co-workers (a female attorney, btw) suddenly asked me who was on my "list of five." After a brief moment of confusion, she clarified . . . if I were married, this would be my list of five celebrity-type people that, if by some miracle the opportunity presented itself, I could boff without repercussions from the wife.
Now, I haven't really thought about such a list, so it took me a little while to start listing candidates. Of course, the simple fact that such a conversation was initiated in my workplace kinda made me giggle inside, and is one of the reasons...
Boredom movie meme
If I havenít seen it, the film is in normal type.
If I saw it but would never watch it again, the film is listed in strikethru.
If I saw it and liked it, the film is listed in bold.
If I saw it and loved it, it's also underlined.
If I saw it but have no strong reaction, the film is listed in italic.
And hereís the list:
1. Pulp Fiction (1994)
2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-03)
3. Titanic (1997)
4. Blue Velvet (1986)
5. Toy Story (1995)
6. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
7. Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
8. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
9. Die Hard (1988)

Y'know, I should have known things would take a turn for the shitter. Actually, I kinda did know, but I think I was in denial. Ironically, it's almost exactly 2 years to the day from my last break up. I'm really thinking that happiness on the romance front is totally not meant to be for me.
No, I am not dead
Wow, it's been, like, for-ev-er since I last updated this thing. Terribly sorry about that. Not really sure what to say here, but I suddenly got this urge to add a new entry. Maybe I'll start finding the time to keep the blog updated. Of course, don't hold your breath lol.
Okay, so quick update on the last six months or so. I totally rocked my midterms despite abject fear of failing. Last semester I slacked off considerably, however, and while I feel fairly confident I'll receive passing scores in two of my classes, the third one kinda worries me. Summer session just started, so a...
