Do you remember when I did this post saying I had swallowed a spider that I was relocating to my terrarium because I thought I had squished the resident terrarium spider in a statue moving accident?
You don't remember?? That's okay, I think I just filled you in.
Anyway, it turns out that I might not have squished the first spider as suspected because I saw one in there the other day. I'm happy but a little sad that I made a snack out of spider #2 for nothing.
Anyway, as I was putting the last of my Christmas ornaments away, I found I had forgotten to put Han Solo on my tree this year. He was hiding in a box labeled LL Bean shoes for men which we all have to admit was a great hiding place. I was a tad upset because I've put him up every year since we got him. Then I had a brilliant idea! To ensure I don't forget about good old Han again, he will now be guarding the gardens of my terrarium. I'm sure he'll keep the squirrels from getting my nuts. Both literally and figuratively.
I want to thank all of you traitors who voted for Gran Torino and took Andy's side. No really, thanks. Can you believe it only won by 2 points?? It was a great movie and I'm glad I went to see it.
Now, I'm not much of a movie reviewer if I like a movie I just do. I don't sit there and analyze why. For that same reason, I never take into consideration what movie critics are saying about a certain movie to make my decision. I give you as an example "Sideways" this is what Ebert had to say "Miles is the hero of Alexander Payne's "Sideways," which is as lovable a movie as "Fargo," although in a completely different way." Ebert is entitled to his very well paid opinion but while I loved Fargo, Sideways was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. And I sat through The Women (another bomb) (if somebody asks you to see that movie with them, ask them why they hate you.).
So yeah, go see Gran Torino.
Well, see ya guys later, I need to go put away my freakin' laundry!
