The Same Old Situation

As usual I had a fairly uneventful weekend.

Friday we played Red Steel on the Wii and then watched Hannibal Rising. I know it sounds cheesy, yet another Hannibal movie, but it was honestly not bad. It was the story of what happened to make Hannibal the way that he is. It wasn’t spectacular, obviously not as good as Silence of the Lambs, but it was way better than Hannibal. It’s definitely worth a rental if you’re a fan of Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon.

Saturday I worked, and then we went and hung out with my boyfriend’s brother and his girlfriend. His brother, D, cooked pancakes and bacon for us. I love it when people cook for me when I don’t have to pay them. It doesn’t happen often, sadly. Then we watched The Wendell Baker Story, which was not very good. I feel bad, because I love the Wilson brothers, but this was no good. It was written by Luke Wilson, directed by Luke and Andrew Wilson (who is, by the way, the hottest out of all of them. Why does he not act more?), and starred Luke, Owen Wilson, and Eva Mendes. It just wasn’t very funny. It dragged in lots of parts, and some of the acting was pretty bad (sorry Eva… You’re pretty, but you can’t act worth crap).

Sunday we went to see Lars and The Real Girl. This movie is about an odd guy who finds "love" with a real doll. The first half of it was hilarious, and the second half was touching, poignant, and sweet. I love, love, love Ryan Gosling. I highly recommend it if you like quirky indie movies at all.

I can't believe your hateful attack on Eva Mendes who, I will have you know, is slated to become the next Mrs. Fab.

I hate Eva Mendes, too. She is such a shitty actress!

What do you think of Red Steel? It was one of the first games I got for my Wii last year, and it took me a long time to get used to it, but it never quite clicked with me as a fun game. It was just too muchwork.

mr. fab- I think she's very pretty... if she keeps her mouth shut

Avitable- I don't really like it but my boyfriend does. I get frustrated easily
