I hate…

February 27, 2009

…being sick.

I’ve felt a cold coming on since like Tuesday, but it didn’t really arrive in Full Force (Yes House Party) until last nite (Thursday nite).

I’m taking some sinus stuff and the vaporub, and because I hate sore throats I’m actually taking this homeopathic stuff my Mom sent me. It tastes like boiled socks, but it does the trick.

In other news, the new gig is going well so far. Today marked my last training day (No Denzel), and Monday the position of “Consultant” (that’s what it says on my work-appointed bio–kinda cool, actually) is all mine. Wish me success!

Couple Random Questions for a Tired Sunday

February 22, 2009

1- Where do boogers come from? Do they have a scientific name?

2- ‘Fuck was I thinking drinking amaretto? Sweet ass liquer + No water = Dumb.

3- Why don’t I have a back scratcher here in my computer room? Er, office?

4- How good is Blessed Union of Souls’ “I Believe”? (I’ll answer that one: “Very f’n good.”)

5- Is it wrong that, despite my long-standing Joe Budden standom, I’m wary about his new album? Dude’s got great First 5 Songness, but really bad Last 3 Songness. *ducks*

Call Reynolds, Cuz it’s a Wrap.

Alright kids, that’s it for today. Just felt like randoming. I’m fucking tired right now but I know if I laid back down I wouldn’t be able to sleep.

Bollocks.

Anyway, the new 8:30a-5ish job starts tomorrow, so wish me luck.

The Rihanna Picture

February 20, 2009

Seriously, it’s a new low for humanity, everyone posting that picture. I thought the drumbeat to have Britney Spears kill herself was bad, but this is somehow more disgusting.

SMH.

Humanity Lost.

Kanye = Korrect

February 17, 2009

Just reading an interview with Kanye West from Details Magazine, and this particular excerpt resonated with me. I feel exactly how ‘Ye does here:

A question about the type of woman he’d settle down with elicits a classic hyperbolic yet self-evident response: “What I feel like—’cause I wanna be married, of course—I feel like the type of girl I would be with is a fellow superhero. So we get that ‘already flying and now we’re just flying together’ thing.”

Me too, man. Me too. Still, being single sucks a lot less for me lately, I gotta make that known.

Hey, So…

February 16, 2009

As some of you know, since September I’ve been working in the backroom of my local mo’fuggin’ Target store.

It’s not the most fun ever.

Well, a temp agency called me last week to go interview somewheres, and long story short, I got the job.

The money’s right, the hours are right, and it’s in an office environment, which I like.

Right now it’s a temp gig, 2-4 month assignment, but I plan on bustin’ my ass (el pauso!) so that they strongly consider keeping me on. If not, I’ll still bust my ass and earn some cred with the temp people.

All in all, it’s a good time to be me.

Movie Time, Movie Time

February 15, 2009

So, as long-time readers of It Ain’t That Serious already know, I’m a huge movie buff. I go to be entertained first, and anything else–inspired, enlightened, mushy, scared shitless–is a bonus.

That being said, I’ve seen 2 movies in two days, and I thought I’d give you my thoughts on both. Heeere we go!

Movie #1- Friday The 13th.
Okay, so I’ve never really been a Jason fan. In fact, before this most current remake, out of the 11 before it, I only saw 3. I saw Part 9, Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, Jason X, and Freddy vs Jason. I liked 9, didn’t like 10, and I thoroughly enjoyed 11.

This remake had me kinda iffy tho’ because just last week I saw Rob Zombie’s reboot of the “Halloween” franchise and I wasn’t particularly impressed with it. I mean, sure, it was updated, but it didn’t strike me as anything special. I was, however, very pleasantly surprised with this remake of Friday the 13th.

The main hero, his sister, and the hottie who dug the main hero, were all extremely likable. That’s important in horror films because you have to have characters that you either wanna see die grizzly on-screen deaths, or survive ’til the ending credits. This flick had both.

Oh, and the two main chicks: Amanda Righetti (http://mostwanted.nfsgame.net/images/nfs_new/Amanda_Righetti.jpg) and Danielle Panabaker (http://www.askmen.com/women/galleries/celeb-profiles-actress/danielle-panabaker/picture-4.html) are so not it’s obscene. Danielle Panabaker definitely stole my heart, but Amanda Righetti was on some other shit, too.

But I digress.

Anyway, ol’ RTH enjoyed this flick a lot. The critics are slamming it, but I think the movie was good. Not just good for a Jason movie, or good for a horror flick, but a good movie in general.

Movie #2- He’s Just Not That Into You
First off, I completely disagree with the stupid book this movie’s based on. I’ve talked to enough girls to know that they’d rather let that book lead them to look for mysterious “signs” rather than grow a pair of Girl-Balls and just make their feelings known. Seriously, “Hey, I like you, is there anything there?” is waayyy better than *thinks* “Uh Oh, he didn’t try to hold my hand. He’s not into me. Now to run away!”

Ugh.

Now that that’s outta the way, let me first issue a state of No Homo Juelz Santana, because apparently liking romantic comedies might lead people to think I also like dudes. Funny enough, the same people who claim stuff is gay do it to impress other guys. That’s odd, seeing as how I thought trying to appear attractive to other men was gayer than liking love stories.

Ah well. On to the movie!

When it was all said and done, I really liked this flick a lot. I think in terms of non-teen love story flicks, “Love, Actually” is my favorite Rom-Com. It was sweet and funny and had great stories and junk. This movie was along the same lines, with each character’s story somehow overlapping with other characters.

The film looks at people and couples in various stages:

~Married Couple in first home
~Long Term Couple Debating Merits of Marriage
~Guy stuck in quasi-friend zone with girl who keeps him around as the backup guy.
~Kiiinda crazy single girl who checks her phone and e-mail 200x a day.
~Girl who’s using myspace to meet a guy.
~Guy who keeps distance from girls and has awesome advice giving skills.
~Scarlett Johansson, who is the undeniably hottest chick in Hollywood.

Anyway, the stories play out satisfyingly, even tho’ one or two of them ended in ways I either didn’t see coming or wouldn’t have preferred to see. The movie was actually very short on signs and psychobabble, and it gave each segment/character/couple ample time for their moments to reach climax. (yes, you may giggle at that last sentence).

All in all, a funny movie that was touching, and unless you’re all stupidly thugged out or some kinda “Bol” character-esque love hater, you’ll be able to relate to the movie in one way or another.

Plus, Scarlett Johansson is basically in tight or low cut or both clothing in every scene.

Llama al Reynoldsl Por Que Es Fini!

Alright kids, that’s it for tonite. I hope you enjoyed your Valentine’s Day. It’s after midnite so Cupid Day is over. As for me, I saw “He’s Just…” with my cute friend Stacie, with whom I have no shot, but spending time with a cute girl was nice.

Plusss, since my friend Maverick was stuck closing, I got to hang out with his fiancee The Dizzle and my nephew Patronus. Getting to see them is a luxury at this point because of schedule conflicts, so this ended up being a very lovely Valentine’s Day–even without the romance.

I’ll take that.
