My Secret Goth/Irish Code Name--> "Morbid Lee O'Bese"


I'd say today was uneventful, but that would be making it sound too exciting, and I'm not always a fan of hyperbole...

If I described today for you in detail, you might accidentally injure yourself... you would pass out from boredom and possibly hurt your nose on your keyboard as your head fell forward. I could not possibly live with that on my conscience, so I would be forced to get me to a nunnery. Or whatever the male equivalent would be. Seminary, I guess. I'd have to become a priest. Or I could just learn first aid, so that if/when you next hurt yourself reading my blog, I could be there to help. Hurt and heal... it has a strange balance to it...

Here's the less-dangerous, blindingly fast recap... take a deep breath... ready?

Took Chris to work at 7:30, picked her up at 9:30, went to church with family, ate disgusting (but cheap) fast food for lunch, came home, played Fallout 3, went to evening service (alone), did some duping, filmed the evening service, came home, ate a PB&J while playing more Fallout 3. Now, I blog.

Whew. Are you ok? If you need to stand and pace the room, breathing deep for a second, I can wait... go ahead...

[/me whistles.]

OK, better now? Good. I shall proceed...

Made a start on Speaker For The Dead, by Orson Scott Card last night. I shall read more tonight, methinks. Zack will be coming over for a visit tomorrow, which should be a hoot. I have some work-related items to do sometime tomorrow as well... wonder how that will play out? Hmm, work or play? How much of a responsible adult should I be tomorrow...?

Ah, I love rhetorical questions...

I'm going to do something a bit different tonight, as far as movie clips. I'm going to post one of the Most Absurd Scenes EVER in Action Movie History. It is the infamous "corkscrew car jump to remove a bomb from under the car" clip from Transporter 2.



Whoever made the call to include that scene should get the Golden Turd Award in the category of Brazen Absurdity. And a good, hearty slap to boot. For shame.

Seeing as how there's no following a clip of that magnitude, I shall bid you farewell for the day.

Until tomorrow, does this smell funny to you?

Well, actually, yes Dave, it does smell funny to me. The question is, why are you commenting on your own blog? What a noob...

I remember sitting in the theater at that part and thinking, "This is where Dave stops watching the movie." Poor Jason. I did not go see Transporter 3 and doubt it will even warrant a rental.

Although I can't really talk like I have these high standards when it comes to films. I currently have Bangkok Dangerous playing in the background...

There are some other really lame scenes in Transporter 2, but this scene is legendary. And holy mackerel, I couldn't even get through the trailer for Bangkok Dangerous without stomach cramps... and you're actually watching it?

Nick Cage is a whole other level of cheese. I can overlook a lot because of Raising Arizona, but unlike God, my grace has it's limits...

Just so you don't think too lowly of me I must explain. I'm sure Cox has pay per view movies right? Well Time Warner has a deal right now and a bunch of them are 1 cent each. I rented some others, spent about 10 cents. I will not mention the names because I'm trying to avoid your scorn not heap it on.

Oh come on, Dave. You're trying to tell me you've neverdone that move before? Sheesh... you need to get out more. ;)
