Got my liscense and night liscense.
'Cause I didn't speed 3 miles over the limit this time.
They fail ya' for that.
Why is that bar so...Autumn-y?
First off a thanks to Deirdre for the Hanson book. It really surprisingly made my day as a surprise. What a surprise! By the way, I'm just not checking all of these pseudo-UPS'ed packages I get anymore. No one ever puts a return address name, usually it's from a company or a Secret Ninja. So no, I'm not checking them for anthrax or bubble-wrapped [tm?] bombs anymore.
Secondly, "wow Mattathias [thankyou Yacov/Jacob for this wonderful nickname you Jewish Tenenbaum you,] a post this soon after the prior one? No WAY, you've never done this plzkthnx." Well, it's gonna be short. Just had a few things I think will feel good to get down on...screen. Monitor.
WHOAMG I DIGITALLY FARTED. :
[Lolx College Pals Are Back]
So yeah I saw Ryan, Zack/Zaxx, Sarah, Tom, Jamie, and Janet over the Thanksgiving break. (I bet Zack calls it Turkey Day.) It was great to see all of them again, some have changed, but mostly just in the...hair region. Which I will now detail for you. Like a hairstylist would detail your...sideburns.
First, Demmy and I ambushed Sarah at Fridays to slam her. [to slam | the ferociously unnecessary act of punching someone either once or repeatedly in the Nether Region. in sarah's and demmy's case, this would be the Wang.] We did, and I saw Grant's sister Marissa working there. She is silly roflolzx.
But also at the table were Gwen, Janet Xu [attending Yale,] Zack [attending Syracuse,] Jamie [attending I dunno,] Tom [attending College,] and Anne. She attends Paris. So yeah I definitely felt we ruined Gwen's night, and I was glad hee! As I graciously stole her breadsticks and someone's lime slice.
Later on, Demmy and I would purchase an almost completely-ripe mango from Wegmans. They had no starfruit by the way, I forgot it had a season, and this is most definitely not it.
So then I hung out with Ryan the next day, later on in the afternoon really. Myes myes, later on approximately. It was amazing, usually he just shows me random vids on his computer or something downstairs in the Entertainment Room. We just chit-chat-a-nized about everything he's done at college so far. He's loving it, but I can't say anything he told me.
Great conversing though, nothing compares to just lounging on someone else's bed and buzzing about girls. Or a girl.
He ended up showing me some random BoA vid where she walked through ghetto Korea. I never dug her, but the random Ghettorea Pop-And-Shockers ((breakdancers)) were mega. Mega _______. Oh, and this French radically-tubular babe Alizee. At first I thought he said allez-y or allons-y, which basically translate to "LET'S GO!" But yeah she had the most intoxicating hip-twirls.
Lastly, Dirtbag and I chilled with Zack that same night. We just cruised in Dr. Borowitz' hybrid Toyota - they took the registration off his old california sea blue sedan : - ate at Mighty Taco. Then we viewed Dogma at Demmy's.
Oh and we viewed Elf at Demmy's at somepoint over the break. All of Tarah's usual suspects were there. Lynn's mega-cute. Canadian Bacon remained unwatched, sorry Zaxx!
My editor (NeXt) just rejected my idea for a feature on Natalie Portman. I wanted to write about her contrasting career progression, and how she was more willing to do things, seemingly, for Mike Nichols. However Jean said it's shyed away from since the article would be tied to Closer, and they don't do R-rated movies anymore. But if a phone interview with Nat comes up, I'll tape it and be able to do the story.
I'm really bummed, as I had begun the article anyways, and I think I'll still work on it from time to time. But expect another story in there from me in a week or so. I have a few ideas, but don't really feel like reviewing any other movies right now. So they'll probably be features, I just finished a Better Luck Tomorrow review and a profile of Will Fichtner, who used to work with my dad at Pepsi Buffalo, before moving to Hollywood, for our school's newspaper.
College stuff is finally finished, all the portfolios sent out. I'm such a dope though, I keep forgetting to give my recommendations out. And I'm sorta falling behind in photo to those two days when I was sick with Almost Stomach Flu. Photo shoot due next Monday, one print due Friday, and a Powerpoint presentation was to be finished yesterday, and my extension's pretty much up. (I actually managed to make Powerpoint produced something good though, God that program blows.)
Anyways, the script for Part Trois is coming along. Mostly it consists of me having a scene idea pop into my head, then I run downstairs and type up the basics somewhere. Don't worry, all the random sequences will tie together. Also some pre-production soundtrack ideas are being tooled out.
Closer on Friday, another Nichols hit? From seeing what I have seen, I called Natalie's role in it "a breakthrough as positive as the Cuban revolution." We'll see though on Friday.
And then probably the last Guapos game of the season. Followed by Sheila's party if I feel like it. This is all on Saturday.
Life Is Still Delicious
And that was not short.
