The Greatest Game Ever Played

Well I just got to see The Greatest Game Ever Played, and now I question the sanity of the people who panned it in reviews and whatnot. It’s absolutely beautiful, and this is from someone who pretty much doesn’t give two shots about golf, in fact I’m basically bored to tears by the game, but they totally make you feel for the characters with great casting, writing and directing and they really made me care about that particular US Open.

Of course, I saw it because Shia’s in it, and his films never seem to dissapoint even if they’ve gotten bad reviews. So color me surprised that they really are good films. I didn’t even want to see Disturbia, lol. In fact, I’m still ticked that they remade it but it’s *so* good. Le sigh, lol.

Affordable a Vacation? Me?

If you’ve ever dreamt of Luxury Skiing holidays in Meribel, France, or longed for Luxury ski chalets in St Anton, Austria, then you’re likely dreaming of luxury ski deals from SuperTravel. Okay, granted I don’t and will never have enough money to go on a vacation, especially not to the likes of Courchevel, France or anywhere else in europe, but the deals over at SuperTravel actually make me wonder if I’d be able to go someday. I ride the poverty line, and I have to live hand to mouth, but does that mean a Meribel chalet is really out of my reach? It’s starting not to seem that way, and Supertravel has specialists who can arrange vacation travel for you, maybe they could help? Either way, it’s looking more and more possible. :D

Tired of Bossman

I am so sick and tired of Bossman being at my house all the damn time. I’m tired of working all night then having to stay awake all day because he just won’t leave, and on top of all that he’s Bossman, what can I really do about it? It’s driving me insane, he thinks we have this great friendship even though I’ve made myself clear – I don’t like him, I can’t stand his politics and I think he can shove his God where the sun don’t shine, I don’t want it in my government but he laughs that off as if I must be kidding or something. I’m gonna kill him, lol.

Short Review – Cloverfield

Okay, well apparently Cloverfield is a piece of crap and I’m glad I didn’t waste my precious time and even more precious money going to see that turd box in the theater, because they don’t deserve my ticket money lol.

See, when Cloverfield first came out I thought, “Oh jesus, another We’re Douchebags horror movie.” and I wish I’d just kept that in my mind at all times instead of being fooled by the fact that the amazing Drew Goddard was the pen for this stinker. The concept’s not bad, and I agree that American should have it’s own Godzilla-like monster, but can we please have central characters who don’t annoy me and make me spend the entire movie going, “OH GOD, please just die already! Show me the monster before you go!”?

Free Hat!

I’ve talked about L.A. Police Gear before, mostly because of their insanely cool and cheap selection of boots, but I thought I’d write a little about their Blackhawk holsters because right now whenever you buy a Blackhawk SERPA Tactical Holster for $89.99 ( cheap! ), you get a free LAPG baseball hat! How cool is that?

I didn’t even know they sold that kind of thing, I knew about their police gear, of course, but it looks like they’ve got quite a bit of equiptment for the armed forces and government, too, and it’s cool for someone like me who’s a civilian to be able to get a good look at some of this stuff. Very interested! I wish I knew more about it!

Rent Some Freedom

I’ve talked before about how there’s no public transportation here, period, and how there are also few sidewalks, narrow roads and horrible pavement. Well, for the longest time I thought car rental was out of the question until I found out that tries to keep their prices low no matter how far away you may live, plus right now they’re having a 50% discount on car rentals for luxury and convertable cars, as well as other specials and discounts, how cool is that?

Grrr, Hungry.

So, the hotdog – meaning my hotdog – is long gone, and I don’t want sweets, so it looks like I’m in the market for some rice aka I’m going to be making some rice to nosh on.

I can’t wait til next Schwan’s day, Laota and I are going to go crazy and buy up a bunch of grilling meat for 4th of July this year, which is gonna rule since we miss festivities every damn time, thanks to my lovely mother. But yes, can’t wait because, as a treat, there will be ice cream. I decree it!

Never Lucky

Well, I’m in the midst of doing a major amount of website overhaul and wondering why I haven’t killed myself instead. Sometimes I don’t realize how many sites I actually run, and no it doesn’t include the 104 fanlistings ( thank the gods for Enthusiast! ), but everything needs updating, all the scripts need upgrades, and I just don’t have the time but when you’re talking script upgrades you have to *make* the time – hence my whining! Whine!

If I’m lucky I’ll be done with a lot of this stuff by mid-afternoon, but I’m never lucky so let’s not count on that, shall we? Lol.

Vacation Memories

I haven’t been on vacation in a super long time, mostly because of the fact that all of the money I’ve got goes right to feeding and clothing, and paying bills, etc., and I doubt I’ll go on another vacation anytime soon, but if I were there’s only one place I’d want to go, and that’s home to Los Angeles ( well, home is Anaheim, but we did live in L.A. for quite a long stretch ). The last time I was there was when my family decided to visit my sister Tina and her husband in their brand new house, and it was a blast even though we stayed in most of the time.

Of course, we hit the Southern California vacation spots: to Anaheim for Disneyland, Knotts and shopping – to San Diego for Sea World and the gorgeous Zoo, which was a highlight. Then we headed down to Tiajuana back when it was easy to leave the country for a bit just to party. But what made it memorable was it was one of the only vacations I’d ever taken where my stepsis and I had really bonded. We went out dancing ( swing dancing ), we went shopping, we just hung out, vegged and watched TV and did mini golf and all of the things that families are supposed to do but we never had in our family.

Before we left for home, we hit Vegas with Tine (without her fam) which we haven’t done in, well..ever. If you’re looking for insanely fun things to do in Las Vegas, you should definately consider the more ‘old skool’ casinos if you can find any, but if you can’t, then check out Madame Tussauds – their Jack Sparrow is scary realistic!

You can find out more about Madame Tussauds, Las Vegas and and discounted sightseeing tours over at Trusted Tours & Attractions, your source for online travel guides – actually, if you love free ( and I know you do ), you can sign up for their newsletter before June 30th of this year and you could enter to win a handheld GPS!
