The Indy Recap

So, I've been away from technology thanks to the long Memorial weekend and this has been my first opportunity to blog. I know I promised next day, but I can only do so much!

The much anticipated Indiana Jones flick wasn't a complete let down, but it wasn't a homerun either. Here are my responses when people ask what I thought...

...you have to go see it, it's an Indy movie.
...enjoy the special fx.
...don't go tired.
and last but not least, Ironman is still the best summer blockbuster!

LOOK OUT INDY!!!! I'm coming for ya!!!

Dudes! I am SOOO excited for this movie! I had made plans to have dinner with a old co-worker almost a month and a half ago not thinking about the release date for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. When we touched base yesterday about our dinner plans, I mentioned maybe we could see the movie together. But that skank ho had promised to take her little cousin on Friday. Boo!

Good thing she let me off the hook for dinner tonight, because now I can fulfill my destiny and see Indy! I've watched all three movies about a kazillion time, just like anyone else who grew up in the '80s. But my favorite Indiana Jones movie was Raiders of the Lost Ark, because of one Karen Allen (aka Marion Ravenwood...which is also the best character name of all time!) Marion Ravenwood is badass! The best is her introduction to the audience in the movie, outdrinking some dude/dudette in a Siberian dive bar, THAT SHE OWNS! That's awesome! She drinks that he/she under the table. THEN kicks ass in a gun fight! I mean, if you're a young girl coming of age and watching this movie how can you not totally look up to her and aspire to grow up to be just like Ms. Ravenwood!? She's the only Indy girl who can throw a decent punch, and obviously due to the fact that she's in this long awaited sequel, she must be Indy's only true love. Yeah Marion! Snag that dude!!! And protect him from snakes!

Hopefully, tomorrow I'll have nothing be good things to say about this movie. 8:30pm showing people! I'm so close now!!!! :)

LA Driving Lesson of the Day

Let me preface with saying I'm a really good driver! I pay
attenetion, I signal, I rarely drive agressively. But something that
really freaks me out while driving here in LA are the papperazzi.
Watch out for these fuckers!

I just encountered this as I was driving to Hollywood along Santa
Monica Blvd. I was at the intersection of La Cienega and of course
caught the light there, because I always do! And this huge dude who
iwas driving the car to my right, parks his car and jumps out. I
thought I was getting car jacked or something! Then he whipped out
this big camera and ran to the car that was teo ahead of me and
started snapping. I never saw who it was because they made it through
the next light and I got caught at it. But they were driving a white
tracker that looked a couple of years old, so I can't image it was
anyone good. But still...don't scare me like that papparazzi! You
don't know what I'm capable of!

Happy 5th of May!

so, i always thought that this mexican independence day and was celebrated throughout the mexican community. but i was way off. thanks to wikipedia i learned that cinco de mayo is the day that the mexican army defeated the french at puebla. unfortunately, this only delayed the french in taking over mexico city a year later. too bad!

mexico doesn't even observe this as a holiday. i guess they don't need another reason to drink. i for one, will be enjoying a nice margarita on the rocks (no salt) and some chips and guac tonight! fo sho!
