|11:59 pm - Weekend Update's Big Score|
Let's see if I can make this one quick:
Friday: Hung out at agaysexicon & fuzzyinthehead's with tmbgfan1234, koriandrkitten, bluntobject, jeklnskinsgrl, sylversmoke and Jimi. Watched Labyrinth and Love Actually, talked through Muppet Treasure Island. Verdict: Had a good time.
Saturday afternoon: Hung out with Ellen, had lunch at Carlos O'Kelly's. Got my Christmas present from her and cursed Amazon for not shipping hers faster. Verdict: Had a good time.
Saturday evening: Went to laviorli's annual "Reunion of Sorts." Worries about uncomfortable social situations were dispelled by certain people not being there. Saw people I haven't seen in a long time, mostly talked to evil_jim. Played seanorange's hangman game and was dismayed to learn that there is nobody called the "Harlem Glovetrotters." phil_bond and I sang a duet to Material Girl on the game Karaoke Revolution and outsold Madonna. Lindsay made hats for everybody. Mine is a bunny, and it's actually pretty cool. Verdict: Had a good time, got a hat.
Saturday night: Went to Rocky Horror, received delicious Christmas cookies from sweet_hot_lips (thanks Tina!), and finally met xmerrie1039x. Went to dinner where people actually fought over me to have me sit at their table, consequently spread myself somewhat thinly. Oh, well. Verdict: Had a good time.
Sunday: Visited Mom & Dad with my sister, relearned The Boar's Head Carol. No, I don't expect anyone to know what I'm talking about. Did frantic last-minute shopping for my Secret Santa recipient at work, came up with Bratz coloring book and 24 assorted crayons. Tomorrow he's getting rubber ducks with Santa hats. Verdict: Had a good time.
Monday: Saw King Kong with koriandrkitten. Not sure why so many people expected it to suck, but I expected to love it and I did. Good cast, good story, and probably the best special effects all-around that I've ever seen. Very solid filmmaking from Peter Jackson, who is fast becoming the modern Ray Harryhausen. Deserves a much longer review than this, complete with comarisons between Jack Black's character, Orson Welles, and Edward D. Wood jr. I think 2005 has spoiled me as far as movies go. Verdict: Had a good time.
Current Mood: mellow
Current Music: Chris Black -- Crimson Skies
Glad you had a good time but you forgot to mention how Naomi Watts nipples were visible the entire movie.
Ps: The girl from the trailor "The Break Up" is indeed Joey Lauren Adams from Chasing Amy. Which means now I'll have to watch it if for no other reason.
That's not unusual for her, is it?
Speaking of Naomi Watts, is it just me or does she always cry when she does a sex scene (man or woman)? I haven't seen Kong yet, so I have no idea if there's an analogue of some kind.
Bah! You'll have to explain this Glovetrotters thing to me.
So, what do you think? Does it have potential? I heard it going pretty much all night, so I hope that means someone found it mildly entertaining.
Some of us know the Boar's Head Carol. They sing it in the SCA.
Hey, cool. Incidentally, I got your message the other day. I'll be there, and I'll bring that salsa.
C is for cookie thats good enough for me!
Colin I am so glad you enjoyed the cookies! With out you in the audience the show would not be as funny and we all know it. In my eyes I see you as a honorary cast member, and I made goodies for all cast. For Christmas presents for all cast. It makes me happy to hear that you are enjoying them.
See you next show!
I remember the Boar's Head Carol!!!! :)
I s'pose, if anybody on my Friends list would remember, it'd be you. I didn't realize how well I knew the alto part, but when you rest for half of the song, I guess you pick up the part that's the next closest to your own.
