why???

why do i get so many email solicitations from "christian lending companies" and "christian dating services?"

it just doesn't make any sense. first of all, i'm not really a christian. second of all, i don't need to borrow money. and third, i'm married.

why don't they stop? and every time i put one of them on a spam list, i get 2 or 3 more...

and what the fuck does "christian lending principles" mean, anyway???? their rates are lower? or they're nicer to you when they repo your car? or maybe they pray for you when you can't make a payment. it's just stupid.

list of movies we've watched: "ten" last night. iranian movie that came out a while back. i thought it was really good. ten encounters in a woman's car. (not dirty encounters)... also shows the dynamics between her and her son... and how modern iran has changed... women still don't have the rights that men do, but it seems that their role has become more assertive... then again, i don't know how true to life this movie really is... there are only two camera angles. one is on the driver (the main character) and one is on the passenger. it almost looks like a documentary. and i really love documentaries... 4 or 4.5 out of 5...

on the plane back from australia:
bourne supremacy. i didn't realize that franka potente was only going to be in this movie for about 5 minutes. i don't know. i had mixed feelings about it. when i was watching it, i was all into it. (i scare easily while watching movies.) but... now that i'm thinking back... matt damon makes a very poor assassin/hero guy. as far as sequels (and blockbuster type movies) go, though, i thought it was pretty well done. not too bad. i'd give it a 3 or 3.5 out of 5 stars...

manchurian candidate. interesting premise... i'd be interested in seeing the original to see how it compares. this movie had one ESPECIALLY creepy part in it. i got seriously grossed out. it wasn't gory or anything. it was just... wrong. i thought meryl streep was great, though. denzel, sometimes i like him, sometimes i don't. i really liked him in out of time. i thought he was really good with eva mendes. i'd also give it a 3 or 3.5.

the terminal. i couldn't be more disappointed in this movie. i should've known. the boobs at my work all fucking loved it. "oh, tom hanks! he was so great!" "oh, tom hanks! he's so talented!" "oh, tom hanks! i want to get on all fours and suck your cock!"

okay, granted, he does a good job of pulling of some russian-type accent. but it tries too hard to be charming... and okay, i almost cried near the end when i found out what the fuck he was carrying in the planters can of peanuts... and what was up with the the black girl and the latino guy? she liked him because he was a trekkie? how'd she know? did he actually put that in the love note? and how could you marry someone just because he's a trekkie? they've never even talked... what the fuck ever... i'd give this one a 3.

catwoman. i thought halle berry did the best she could with such a shit movie... and shit direction. and shit everything... i don't know, though. there are some fun parts to it... i really wanted to like the flick. the best part of the whole movie was halle's hot catwoman outfit. one day, i want to grow up to be halle. i'm going to give it 1.5 stars. 1 star is for halle berry looking hot in her outfit. the .5 is for benjamin bratt because he looked really cute. i'd give him a 0.3, but that's just stupid. much like the movie. and i was so tired. i should've just slept through it... but i couldn't sleep for some reason. it was painful. and good god, sharon stone's face looked just absolutely awful! like they'd done some serious CG work to it... maybe it was supposed to look like that... but that would be giving the director just way too much credit.

had a battlestar galactica marathon the other night. we were 4 episodes behind... how i love that show...

I get marlboro ads in the mail and email, I've never smoked. Go figure. I also get dating service ads, I've never registered or anything. Maybe someone else put your name on those lists? Sometimes people do that for twisted revenge.

Mmmmmm...Battlestar. Don't you just love the character dynamics in that show! OMG, I can't get enough of it! I thought Dr. Gaius Baltar was going to get banished in the latest episode or something...maybe hook up with the Cylons.

I've heard The Terminal sucks. I do remember at some point in my life when I liked Tom Hanks. Now, ho-hum.

I'm planning on seeing Catwoman (DVD) soon. I've heard the movie was stupid, but Halle Berry in the catsuit? Oh no, I'm not missing that!

What's up with Battlestar Galactica? Is it already started out there? It doesn't even premeire here until January. I can't wait for that one. I loved the original too. Low budget killed it though.

NM: hey! long time, no comment... :) i guess matt damon could be tom cruise level... because i don't really like tom, either. i think he's overrated. i know, heresy! :P

J: it's okay, you don't have to front over here! you can admit it! i'm sure none of your friends on your blog read mine! :P

G: i KNOW. dude... oh, but shhhhh... i don't know if BSG is out here in the states yet. i thought it was airing in january... shhhh... hehe...

my boyfriend has a problem with the Bourne movies. he says matt damon is too short and too skinny, thus not a believable killer. i liked the Bourne Supremacy except for the handheld camera effect. that made me dizzy.

we saw manchurian candidate and i know the creepy part you're talking about. i think the entire theater went "aaack!"

Good day grrr, baby... very grrr!, I am searching for ass to mouth movies and somehow ended up here.
Your post on ##title## didn't have the info I was looking for on ass to mouth movies, but I though it was a good read, so I bookmarked it to see what you post another day.
