The Invisible

My flight back from Chicago, this was the movie we were forced to watch. Ugh. The moment I saw Justin Chatwin's face, I wanted to puke. I don't know what it is about him - I had an immediate dislike. Of course, the story is about this "handsome" privileged kid who gets killed by the school bully (Margarita Leviava). Ugh. The school bully is of course (as is typical for all movies like this) a pretty but misunderstood tough gal. Of course, she has a crap of a dad that does not care for her or her younger brother. Of course, she loves her younger brother. Of course, they're poor and she's just trying to survive.

I hated them both at first sight. I hate the rich-handsome-good-guy with the poor-pretty-bad-girl combo. It's just so cliche. I know we are supposed to hate the girl in the beginning, but like Nick, as we journey with him to find out what happened to him, we are supposed to love her in the end. In the end, it wasn't her fault really, it was her boyfriend - because he was the one who turned her in to the cops in the first place. What the fuck? I know it's all confusing, I was confused too. But please do not watch this movie.

Funny thing though: As much as I hated both of them, as much as I seethed when they finally "connected", as much as I hated the whole storyline, I was crying in the end. What the fuck is wrong with me? This same thing happened when we watched Bridge to Tarabithia. (premise: good shy boy with larger than life girl - another combo I hate. She - takes him out of his shell. In the end (spoiler)(spoiler), and I was bawling) My hubby was very amused.


Bag Love #3: Mango Bag

This bag is a small leather bag. It's the size of a clutch but with a strap. I can only really stuff my wallet, cell phone, camera & a lipstick in it, but it's really really cool.

It's a MNG Mango bag, my only one. Given to me by Gel, it's one of my favorite small bags. I love it's color. It's not the typical brown leather, the brown is so light it's almost mango colored. The "worn" leather is soft to the touch. It's good for work as well as a night out in the town - coz...yeah, I go out a lot. (heh. that was sarcasm, in case it did not translate.)


Whip It Good!

I randomly heard the Dazz Band's Let It Whip on the radio. Then I realized I loved that song. It's one of those songs that makes me smile (and want to dance!) when I hear it. It was also the song that Sean played in Felicity during Season 2's "True Colors" episode when they were painting Noel's apartment. I loved that scene as well, it's one of my favorites in the entire series. It's a rare scene of Scott Speedman dancing. Ooh la la. Oh, by the way, you won't find this song on the DVD's. It's weird. it's like, they did not have enough money to pay for the rights and therefore used a different song instead. Tsk. Tsk.


Favorite Mitch Hedberg Material

Though about Mitch Hedberg today. God, he was so good. Here are my favorite Mitch Materials:

"When someone hands you a flyer, it's like they're saying - here, you throw this away. "

“An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never seen an Escalator temporarily out of order sign, just Escaloaor temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.”

“The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how much I play, I’ll never be as good a a wall. I played a wall once. They’re fuckin' relentless.”

"I think foosball is a combination of soccer and shish kabobs. "

"This guy asked me if I wanted a frozen banana and I said, "No ... but I would like a regular banana later, so ... yeah.""

"This shirt is Dry Clean only, therefore, it's dirty"

"I want to be a race car passenger--just a guy who bugs the driver. "Say, man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why we gotta keep going in circles? Can I stick my feet out the window? Man, you really like Tide.""

"I wear v-neck shirts, this is a v-neck I got on. My neck is so fragile man, I can't wear a regular neck shirt, it hurts. And I especially hate turtlenecks. Wearing a turtleneck is like being strangled by a really weak guy, all day. Like if you wear a turtleneck and a backpack
it's like a weak midget is trying to bring you down."


My Beesley Shirt

I've watched this episode (The Dundies) so many times but it was only last night when I noticed that Pam is wearing my shirt! Ha! It's an Express shirt that I bought so I can look more "work appropriate". I guess I can see Pam buying her clothes at Express. Hee, still cool.


Fossil Accessories

On a lighter note, I love the new line of Fossil accessories. The colors are beautiful and the pattern are unique. I'd like to get this necklace on the left, but it's a whopping $65.00. There are matching rings as well, those may be more affordable. Gel says they're trying to be like Kenneth Cole (which has the best jewelry line right now as far as we're concerned). In a way, I agree, but so what. I've gotten compliments from the ones that I have...so good job, Fossil. Hurry up and be on sale so I can get a few more.
