Odds and Ends

There's a rumor going around that it's going to be 60 degrees on Wednesday.

I. Am. So. Pumped.

Watching Raiders of the Lost Ark right now. I can't wait for the new one to come out in May. I'm a fan of Harrison Ford, of course, but I'm anxious to see if Shia Lebouf can pull of the role of the son.

Speaking of movies, last night a friend and I watched the Scream trilogy. The first and second ones are classics, but the third one fell a little short on plot and tension. It felt too forced. A big reason for that, I think, is because the third movie had a different screenwriter than the first two.

Lots going on this week. Gym on Monday, taxes on Wednesday, niece in town on Thursday and Friday for a campus visit, work this weekend. The new writing goal is to have a rough draft of the short story done by the end of the week. Fingers crossed and all that.

1) I like the first two scream movies. I also admit to liking Scary Movie 1 and 2. Now that's quality.

2) I have a friend who called me on the phone to tell me she had seen the trailer for the new Indiana Jones movie and that in it there was a clip of him riding bitch on the back of a motorcycle driven by the heroine. She said she "BECAME ENRAGED."

Ever since I've been using that phrase loosely around work. My chair is too low, "I'm enraged". The clock on the wall is still set an hour behind, "I'm enraged." The diet coke is sold out of the vending machine, "I'm enraged."

I love it. I say it with a very NOT enraged look on my face and people laugh.
