I may have mentioned this before, but it’s true no matter how many times I say it.
I am seriously the world’s worst Pen Pal.
You’d think email would make it easier. I’m on the damn computer all the time, right?
But it doesn’t. It actually makes things worse, because I forget emails. I don’t want to; it’s not that they’re unimportant. But I think, “I don’t have time to write back now, I’ll do it later,” and nine times out of ten I’ve forgotten by then.
And then I hate myself for it, but I get so many emails a day that I never remember who I owe emails to, and it seems the kids have some sort of radar for when I sit down to try and figure it out, and the bottom line is, if I owe you an email I’m sorry. Maybe you could email me again and remind me?
I promise I won’t forget this time.
We watched “Munich” this weekend. Damn, that is a good movie. And damn, Eric Bana is HOT in it! He never really appealed to me, but the 70’s-looking Bana, with stubble and longer hair …oh yeah! Yeah! Not to mention our lovely new Bond, Daniel Craig, is in it too.
But no matter who was in it, it’s an excellent film. Bana was freaking robbed when it comes to the Oscars. That was a performance worth a statue, and while I can’t comment on the performances of last year’s Best Actor nominees (because sad to say, I haven’t seen any of the films)…they must have been truly amazing to top Bana.
I hadn’t wanted to see the film, because I thought it was about the actual tragedy at the Olympics and I don’t particularly like movies where everybody dies at the end (except The Dirty Dozen.) But it wasn’t. It’s about the aftermath, and it’s about assassination, and if there’s one thing I love to see movies about it’s assassination. (Unless it’s tacky “what-if” films about assassinations of actual living figures, in which case I do not watch. That’s not a political statement, simply a matter of style.)
Anyway, go rent or buy “Munich”.
And I almost forgot: Happy Elvis’ Birthday, everyone!
