I love Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. I haven’t watched it in forever so I had forgotten how much I love it. It helps that I adore Kevin Costner but there’s just something about this movie. I also adore the score. I miss movies having scores that are like characters themselves. It seems like I haven’t seen a movie that has really relied on its score that way in a while. Or, at least, a movie whose score has stood out to me.
Eh. I’m feeling very lazy today, as if I have accomplished nothing all day. I attempted to move the futon from the bedroom to the living room area only to discover I didn’t have the socket wrenches I need to take it apart. I had plans to go to the office today to work on some things but I screwed around lots of little things (none of which had to be done) that by the time I had taken my shower it was late in the day. Then I was feeling a bit peckish so I closed my eyes for few
minutes hours and it was too late to go when I finally got up. I slept for too long and have been groggy ever since. I ate dinner, watched Mean Girls while I did my toes (appropriate, no?), and now I’m up later than I intended all because I didn’t want to go to bed while my toes were still impressionable.
M & I saw PoTC: Dead Man’s Chest yesterday morning. I liked it but it was a little too long. Nor did it live up to the first PoTC even though I like what they’re doing with Elizabeth. The humor in this one felt a little forced at times and, again, there were parts that could have been cut to make it shorter.
What else can I bore you with? I have had a crappy Internet connection all weekend so I haven’t watched much of the BB feeds. It ends up being listening to them talk while staring at whatever image the feed has frozen on last. Annoying. I need to be able to see the feeds so I can tell where I need to be watching – although I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the cameras shown already. Must be because we already know most of the contestants so we already know which conversations are likely to be interesting and which aren’t… usually it takes much longer to realize the camera guys are f-ing with us by giving us the two people talking about what to cook for dinner while there is an important strategy convo happening somewhere else. Anyway. Point was, I haven’t been watching. I watched a little bit of the game the HG made up today and that was fun but, again, my feed connection was annoying me. I’m sure we’ll get some of it on Tuesday’s show, though, so I look forward to that!
Help me decide, f-list, should I rent a car in SD? I don’t need it Thur-Sun but I’m starting to think I will want one for Sun, Mon, and/or Tues excursions. I’m definitely doing the zoo one of those days and the concert in the park on Tues. And I do plan to explore the museums in BP as well but I suspect that won’t really keep me busy for three days. I’ve begun to consider checking out VM locations and/or spending half a day at the beach writing. So, is it worth the $100 to rent one for three days?
One more week of work and then I’m off for 14 days straight. WOOHOO!!!
