Sorry for the random post last night that had no context whatsoever.
I’ve learned my lesson: Don’t
drink and blog when you have worked a full day and then taught a class afterward and are super duper tired.
Anywho…some random nonsense that is somewhat Valentines related….
I haven’t talked a lot about my class, but I LOVE it. It’s super stressful the day before b/c its basically all I think about, but when I get there and we start discussing, its so much FUN! I’ve had quite a few of the students tell me how much they are enjoying the class and that just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy.
I’ve been meaning to take a pic of the sign in front of the class but kept forgetting, but I remembered last night. And then realized that the date on the sign was wrong. I guess whoever made it just didn’t want Valentines day to end?
Or they are incompetent.
Other than our valentines celebration on Sunday, I didn’t really talk about the actual day itself.
I started the day off by taking a pic of something else I have been meaning to take a pic of for.ev.er.
This is in the wall next to the elevator I go up every day to go to work and every day I see it and think, “how cute is that little heart hole in the wall?” What better day than V-Day to finally snap a shot to remember it forever and ever.
Geeze could I get more lame? Don’t answer that.
I came home after a long day to these:
awwww so pretty.
But not as pretty as this!!
I think we might have to use that bow from the chocolates as his every day collar. He looks so handsome. Buuut I’m pretty sure he hates me. Can’t you see it in his eyes?
Do you ever drink and blog?
Does your pet hate you?
WOW. WOW. WOW.
The only thing that was bad about this movie was the four young’ns next to us who were annoyingly noisy. The girl sitting one seat away from me was sucking on some unknown candy and she obviously had a disorder that prevented her from keeping her mouth closed.
Then she and her other three friends kept passing around and grabbing the noisiest bag of goodness-knows-what. I kept thinking “Ok, they have to finish whatever that is eventually and it will stop”, but it took until about 3/4 of the way through the movie for them to finally stop with all the rustling. AND annoying mouth-open-sucking. Blech.
Good thing the awesome movie on the screen kept me pretty entertained so I would be distracted from all the inconsiderate movie-goers next to me
and not strangle them and steal their noisy candy.
Ok Cinnamon. Stop. Focus. Movie review.
Denzel+Ryan+interesting plot +non-stop action =movie heaven.
This was a good one. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. There was a lot of edge-of-your seat action, but not over the top, crazy the-world-is-going-to-end action. Just your basic car chases, gun fights and all-that-jazz action that keeps you on your toes. I had to consciously tell myself to relax my shoulders numerous times throughout. (And not b/c I was so tense at all the sucking and rustling that was going on next to me either.)
In ways, this reminded me of The Departed, although I think that one still wins out as the better movie. The acting was great, both Denzel and Ryan did bang up jobs and the supporting actors held their own. There were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming (which I always enjoy) and a couple of really good BAM!! jumps that just shocked the heck out of you. The good kind. Not the bad kind. Makes sense right? Right.
Also, there was a lot of man crying. Now THAT is refreshing. When was the last time you saw a movie where the dudes were crying all the time? A+ original in my book. And just in time for Valentines day.
I haven’t really read any reviews on this, but I’m assuming that some people will say it’s too much like Training Day. Mostly b/c Denzel is the bad guy (or is he???) and, well…I won’t ruin it for you if you haven’t seen it, but maybe I inadvertently just did anyway. Oops!! Don’t worry, you will still like it. I haven’t ruined anything.
I don’t remember excessive cussing and the violence fit with the plot. Not good for kids or those who don’t like suspense or surprises aka…boring people. Hey, I’m not judging, just saying….
