Dang! - a weekend update

I didn't get my office painted over the weekend, my back was too sore. I'm thinking about heading to the doctor, I might have a slipped disc or cancer or something.

A bunch of friends went to see Bourne Ultimatum yesterday... totally great flick. Lots of action, really intense story line... the only thing I can even remotely complain about is the camera work. It's the shaky stuff. You know, like the camera operator is trying to follow the action and send a text message at the same time.

It looks like there will be more sequels after "Ultimatum," the ending was wide-open. I'm glad Ada lent us the first two movies. After seeing the third one, I'm like a fat kid in a donut shop.

Not sure what that means.

We went with two other couples. I can't remember ever attending a movie with a group of people - it's always been me and one other person. It was fun, although Dr. Mike kept flipping me off and throwing popcorn. Paula, please control your subject.

So all-in-all, I'm glad I didn't paint my office. Dave procrastinates again, what a shock!

Sixty mile per hour winds woke me up at midnight last night. OK, actually the dog (who was freaked-the-hell-out) woke me up, but you get the picture.

I love storms. There's just something exciting about watching the lightning across the sky and feeling the ground shudder when thunder booms. And hearing the sump pump kick on. And resetting all the clocks. And picking up limbs.

OK, so storms suck.

I was hoping to see some of the meteor shower last night, but was unable because of clouds. Did you get a look from your location???

Dave Morris said...

I'll... um, try to be... more considerate next time.

Of course I was coming in and out of the bedroom hoping to get back to sleep myself... there are other windows in the house.

(???)

Paula said...

I was up...actually the whole flipping house was up...check my blog later for the details

Dave Morris said...

Paula, I thought about calling you. I figured you could give me the latest updated information... prolly better than TWC.

This is most pleasant:

"I love storms....so storms suck."

Beautiful rendition there, Davey.

I know what you mean about the storms, BDD.

The shakey camera distracted me a lot more this time than Bourne II. It's Paul Greengrass's specialty, but he uses it too much.

Ari said...

I think Bourne gave me motion sickness. I was too close to the front and had to leave in the middle. That's happened once before, but only at an Imax show. Weird.

Didn't see the movie, didn't see the meteor shower ... guess I need to get out more.

I did, however, see a turtle eat a dragonfly. Does that count for anything at all?

I love storms and even all the cleanup work that goes along afterward. Storms always seem to electrify me - make me feel a smidgeon more alive somehow.

Hey, not sure how I got demoted, but sure miss being included as one of your "blog friends" [shrugs shoulders, flips Dave off]

Perhaps your list ought to read "Newer Blog Friends" ? Just a thought.

But really now, s'okay. You know I love ya.

Wish we could have a slight storm...maybe it would cool things off.
Hope you don't have a slipped disc or cancer...hope your back is better soon.

Where are you? Send that storm over thisaway. We've had boring, plain ol' rain for weeks but no exciting, loud, call-your-mother storm. Need one.

Fat kid in a donut shop. Is that like a pig in mud? A retard in a room full of bouncy balls?

I know. I'm going to hell....
