Instead of a smart post, you get this


I’m having some Internet problems. Being a junkie, it’s not fun.
Hey, this could actually be a nice short story, don’t you think?

I was planning a post on great male voices (I stole the idea from Mariana), but I had to refresh my connection so many times, and start that post from scratch, that I finally gave up.

$%@#$ !!!

The last week wasn’t fun- I was sick. I had problems with my sinuses, which gave me headaches. I was sneezing the whole day, I was sleepy all the time and generally felt like shit. I am feeling better now, but I am still sleepy and sick. Which means I’m in a crappy mood, of course.

Good movie time?

Somehow, I managed to watch not one, but two great movies (and one average) and to appreciate their greatness (despite the headache). Two of those actually made my top 10 lists of the decade. (Speaking of which: You do realize, don’t you, that 2010 is the last year of the decade, not the first of a new decade? But 2000 had so many great movies that I included them on the list).

What’s up with all this movie talk? The Oscar season, of course! As you know Bob, I am not into globalization, Hollywood “glamour” and a all that crap… But I watch it anyway. Not that I believe it means something, of course. (After “Shakeaspeare in Love”, at least).

Her husband looks like… (read below)

I had less luck with books. The local library doesn’t have anything meaningful that I haven’t read before. So I ended up with- gasp!- chick lit. Yes, I know, I know. In my defense, I caught a cold and I feel like crap, you know. But you’re right: those books didn’t help.

One was particularly ridiculous, written in first person POV. On page 35 or something, she wrote: “There was my husband. He really looked like Jude Law”. No kidding. I stopped reading. It was way too much. How come this crap gets published? On the other hand, I’ve seen worse. (Read: Twilight). So yeah.

    I’m sad to head you still sick. Sinuses sucks a lot, I still have it even after the surgery, years ago.

    What were the great movies you watched? The Oscar season always leave a kind of furor even for those who get really pissed off by it. I loved last year ceremony and the movies weren’t bad (actually, we had a really good harvest last year). This year I’m a bit afraid because of Pocatar.

    So her husband really looked like Jude Law? lol

    I am feeling better, but now my husband caught a cold. It’s because of the weather, I think. It was warm for three days and then we got rain, then snow.

    The great movies were from “Clive Owen” collection, as I call it: Gosford Park and Children of Men. Both are brilliant (in different ways). Definitely in my top 10 of the decade (thinking of which, I should make my “fav movies of the decade” list, but I have a problem: 2000 wasn’t part of the decade, and the decade still isn’t over, but there are some movies from the year 2000 that I really loved).

    It looks like narrator’s husband really looked like Jude Law. I actually don’t know what that means. What, he was blond, blue eyed, hairy and skinny? Or he was “extremely sexy”? I am sorry, but I don’t find Jude extremely sexy, thankyouvery much. You’re not much of a writer if you’re unable to describe a character yourself. Stop using celebrities as a help for describing.
