The Man is in the living room watching There Will Be Blood, a movie in which I have zero interest. I didn’t watch Deadwood either. Anyway, The Man claims that this movie is really, really boring, which makes me feel pretty good about my decision to opt out. However, when I asked him what he planned on doing tonight he told me “I’m going to watch that movie. Um, There Might Be Blood?” And then I laughed. Because all I could picture were a bunch of passive-aggressive oil barons. As for my night, I went to my Grandma’s, and my sister was there too. It was pretty fun. All we did was sit around and talk, but I like sitting around and talking. J-bird brought some leftover banana birthday cake, which was yum.
We’ll be going up north in a couple of weeks, which means I’ve had to get my List Of New Reading Material together and narrowed down. I’m taking four books with me, I hope. I hope I can get them all. My local Barnes and Noble sometimes lets me down. Anyhow, this is what I’m going to get:
- The Giver: Lois Lowry
- World War Z: Max Brooks
- Water For Elephants: Sara Gruen
- Fight Club: Chuck Palahniuk
I’m so excited for new books!
OK, I can hear people yelling on this movie The Man has in, and I have to say, there is a lot of God-themed bellerin’ in this flick. “I am a false prophet!” “I am a sinner!” “I abandoned my boy!” OK, that one wasn’t God-themed, but he was made to holler it out in church nonetheless. Add to that the soundtrack of ominous, discordant violins of doom and it sounds like a REALLY ANNOYING MOVIE.
