This year I vow to:
Watch more movies
Control my temper, then lose it, finally getting that mug shot I've always wanted
Hold more grudges—just because I'm old and can't keep track of things like I used to is no excuse
Use less punctuation
Be less specific
De-age like Dorian Gray while a picture of me gets worse than my present reality
Pretend to complain about turning 30
Find out where that odor is coming from
Eat more Valentine's Day candy weeks in advance
We interrupt this negative agenda for a special link from Unhinged: Toe-Food Chocolates
Give smoking another chance. You look so cool when you smoke and all the kids are doing it.
Get this post done before the night time pain relievers kiccckl ninnnn8
Have absolutely no self control when it comes to buying stupid, over priced novelty candy
Isn't this cool? You can't eat the teeth, so for a buck 75 it's a little over priced
But you can suck on this: Flavorful coglione shaped sour apple hard candy. Bonus: It breaks before your teeth do. It reminds me of Jack Black's speech in Tropic Thunder, one of the many movies I've recently rented, getting a jump on that first resolution.
Out On DVD
Only one out of the last 10 movies I rented or bought weren't worth bending down to flop into the tray. (Eagle Eye, great trailer, sub par action flick.)
Still one of my favs and recently purchased for ten bucks at Blockbuster: Tropic Thunder
My favorite line from the movie (Robert Downey Jr.): "I don't read scripts, they read me."
Also holds up but get it on Blu-ray or at least widescreen: Hellboy II
A pleasant surprise which I should have known because my parents hated it: In Bruges
I loved it, YoJimbo loved it, you'll love it too, Charlie Wilson's War
Worth another look and for some reason none of the copies I rented when it came out worked: Casino Royale. (Speaking of cogliones and if you want to know what Daniel Craig looks like nude in a chair. Rent it.)
Worth repeated viewing: The other Casino Royale, Layer Cake
Could have been worse, glad Lucy got her teeth fixed and anxiously awaiting Vogage of the Dawn Treader (I'm a Catholic girl of course I devoured those books): Prince Capsian
Not as good as I expected, but still worth renting: Burn After Reading
Thank you Guido for recommending: Dexter. Love that the production designer is named Brandy Alexander.
(Isn't Guido cute, look at those little undies sticking out so fashionably. Aww, baby boy! Sleep aids kicking in.)
Why does this series creep me out when I'm not watching it with a sleepy and irritated chocolate lab in my cousin's basement: Mad Men
Stay tuned for more and number nine.
