Movie Monday: The Last Stand

Well, I'm back. For now. I kind of lost interest in this here blog for a while (although to be fair, I did warn you), but it seems to have returned.

I think I just need to figure out why I want to blog. I love reading blogs (I think it's just a voyeuristic nature), and so it feels natural to want to contribute to that culture. I also used to enjoy writing, and it'd be a good way for me to revisit that. Somewhere down the line I just stopped.

A lot of it is the time commitment. When I get home, I want to just relax and do nothing. So, taking the time to blog takes energy -- even if it's small (and exaggerated). 

I don't know. How to do you bloggers do it? In the end, I know I just need to stop making excuses and go for it. 

Anyway. I had the day off today, so Mat and I went to go see The Last Stand.

It was basically what you would expect, hah. For some reason I was just so excited about Ah-nald's first real role since he's been in back in films, and also his pairing with Johnny Knoxville. It's not going to win any awards, but it has some pretty terribl(ygreat) one-liners, and the former Governator goes hand-to-hand with the main villain. It was the first on our list of movies for 2013, which is long! So many awesome movies are coming out this year!

I am going to go warm up with some soup now. I hope you all got an extended weekend, too! Happy New Year!

crazy brain

So, this blog thing hasn't been working out. I warned you! Truth is, when I come home, watching TV and relaxing on the couch has been winning out over this here blog. I was thinking, though, about devoting this space to my crazy brain... and probably more accurately, my crazy female brain (there are going to be lots of generalizations here, feminists be advised). 

For example: Tonight I got the desire to eat something about an hour before I went to bed. This is the absolute worst time to want to eat. I always feel like I am so close to ending the day, I should just brush my teeth and go to sleep and forget it. But once you start thinking like that, you can't stop thinking about the thing you want to eat. Two hours before bed, not an issue. 30 minutes before bed, actually too close and I will just go to bed. But that hour is the trap. 

I of course ate something but then I had to feel like I should have just gone to bed. Guys do not do this. If they are hungry, they just eat. Ughh.

See? Crazybrain.

Go State!

I'm a (very) proud Michigan State University alumna, and today we try to take on that other school in the state for a 5-in-a-row victory. Let's be honest, our season has been disappointing, especially given our rise over the last few years. That's to be expected (I think) when you lose your QB. This season is just helping to make the next even better. Win or lose, GO GREEN!

The sad truth.

The sad truth behind my lapse in posting is that bf&i started watching Supernatural and we are hooked. So, when we get home from work, we start watching Supernatural and keep watching 'til we go to bed. If we are not watching Supernatural, it's because we are watching one of our fall shows: Sons of Anarchy, Grimm, Parks & Rec, The League, Dexter, American Horror Story, Key & Peele, or most recently, Elementary. 

Sooo yeah. We are lame. It's getting cold out. Bring on the hibernation.
