Any excuse for stupidity . . .

Oh look, it's everyone's favorite excuse for being agressive and stupid, the Michigan-Michigan State game. Can I be an honorary Canadian today? Hell, I'd settle for an honorary Ohioan, and we know how I feel about Ohio!

I'm so glad I'm working sixteen hours today, so I don't have to hear about it.

Saw Bowling for Columbine last night; we had to go to Lansing for it. While it was very good, it created more despair in me than a desire to act. I feel so helpless when I think about the issues presented.

I hope Mary the cleaning lady shows up soon. I want to go back to bed, but know that as soon as I lay down, she'll be beating on the door. As soon as I let her in, it's curtains (well, bed curtains) for me.

Are Jello Shots a redneck drink?

If so, paint a mullet on me tonight after work. I have a bottle of everclear that I bought almost a year ago, and its time has come!

I get out of work at midnight, so if you are in the greater Mt P area around 2am, you know where the after party is!

I'm a sucker for a redemption parable

With nothing better to do at work (you can only look at about 5000 different recipes for Jello shots before that gets boring), I decided to watch Angel Eyes, a J-Lo movie I had never planned to watch, as people told me it sucked. From Jello to J-Lo, Tee-Hee.

I loved it.

Let me repeat that. I loved it. I always thought it was some stupid horror/suspense flick. What I got instead was a great human condition movie, where people and life aren't perfect and an easy answer for everything doesn't exist. It was no Joy Luck Club(since it is the greatest movie, ever) but I could definitely see myself watching it again someday.

If anyone has any film suggestions for people who love this movie, let me know.

P.S. From a psych major point of view, I have to believe that this screenplay was written by a therapist. The dialogue at the end was textbook therapeutic breakthrough.

UPDATE(or P.P.S.) Billy from Six Feet Under was in it too. Yum!
