the beautiful weather of late has had me torn. it really is amazing, and i spent my lunch hour in bryant park, yesterday, as per usual; but it also reminds me of another just-as-beautiful day last september, and i get all nervous. not that kind of nervous where i think it's going to happen again, but just a little anxious, i guess.

i really need a vacation. i'm getting one next week, and i had a taste of one last week, and well, it's just time. fun weekends aren't enough. so two weeks in america's dairyland oughtta put that right.

why are all tv movies so damn bad? last night i had the severe misfortune to fall upon widows. this movie was car-wreck bad, that is, it was so gruesome you couldn't help but watch. well, i could help it but the roommate/life-partner couldn't. which meant i could either leave the room, or suck it up, and dive headlong into pop-culture.

brooke shields turned in easily the most wooden performance of her career, which is saying quite a lot, actually. even good actors are bad in tv movies. mercedes reuhl, always at the very least competent, didn't have a leg to stand on here, possibly because the writing was so very, well, how shall i put it... um... BAD!

i think the whole enterprise is pretty well summed up by this clip from the summary on abc.com: "...join forces with exotic dancer Bella..." join forces? sheesh.

Actually Heard:

"You all got legs, help a brother with one leg out."

"Come on man, that's my head you're hitting."

"Merry fucking Christmas."

"Two Dura-gizers, one dollar."

"Ladies and gentlemen, I am a blind accordian-playeer. I am here to entertain you on the train."

"Jesus Christ is the redeemer, let him redeem you with his Christ-liness, Jesus he will. Yes."

"Excuse me, can I sit there? I'm going to ralph."

"I love SubTalk, 'cause I get to see all those poet guys and stuff."

"I'm on Fifth Avenue. That noise in the background? No, that's just some guy with a loudspeaker."

Never Heard:

"When I sneeze I will aim my nose at my own jacket so as to spare you a sticky mess."

"No, that was definitely me. I will remove myself from your presence at the very next stop."

"I'm sorry that I'm brushing up against you; I do not want you, and if I could put my ass anywhere else, trust me, I would."

"Ladies and gentlemen, hold on tight; there's a train ahead and we're bustin' on through."

"Don't worry, I'll be cleaning this up as soon as I'm done."

"Mommy, can I be quiet now?"

jesus i love these guys. gotta get down to the store this weekend.
