I love the thought of losing weight, being fitter, polluting less, getting to work in less time, and giving the finger to a city that hates anyone who doesn't drive a car.

But I hate exercise.
You gave yourself the answer. In most of the Western world people buy cars, not bikes.
I have both, but I use my car. It is completely impractical for me to use my bike for transportation.

A bunch of movies on DVD, actually, my girlfriend bought them, but she picked up some titles that were on my list, so... Anyway, they are:

Big

Silver Streak

Another You
The Frisco Kid
Heaven Can Wait
Hello Again

We are planing a movie marathon weekend, now and next weekend.

I love movie marathon weekends! And Heaven Can Wait is one of my all time favorite movies. (The one with Warren Beatty.)


I bought Fifth Element for $3.99 on dvd. I plan on wearing ear plugs during the scenes with Chris Tucker.

This past Friday, I purchased the HTC EVO 3D from Sprint, an upgrade and so far I like it.

My mother also collects vintage dolls. I agree on Heaven Can Wait, but I prefer the Reese Witherspoon one.

Purchased this for myself as a birthday gift a few days ago...



Also made a stop on the way home from a funeral when we found this....






and so I bought a few bottles of wine after an impromptu wine tasting....

I didn't know Reese Witherspoon made a remake of Heaven Can Wait. Was it any good? I had heard that Chris Rock also did one, bu I've never seen that since my friends, who know of my love for the Warren Beatty 1978 version, warned me to go live in a State where no copies of Rock's version existed.

I guess that means it's pretty bad.

Oh, and Randi, The Fifth Element?? Ugh. I found it painful to sit through that even once. Ironic, considering that I had been looking forward to it until I actually saw it.

My next task is to look for this for the Android platform.
It is available for the windows 7 phones, so I'll assume it's also available for Android. You are going to LOVE it. I still get a kick out of it every time.

Well done on the sticks bargain, who knew they were so expensive!

And for the topic: I bought a lunch for two hungry little kids, and three wood beed summer bracelets for myself - two mahogany and one black, planning to layer up and wear them together.

Oh jeez...now they've gone and done it.

Although I really do like Serial Killer Victim Barbie still.

If you have to watch war-films, those are the ones to watch




(Plus, of course, Apocalypse Now (the 'Redux' version) and The Deer hunter).

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I had a difficult time deciding whether to buy "Reach for the Sky" or "12 O'Clock High". I think that 12 O'Clock is probably a better movie but my son has seen it before and has never seen "Reach for the Sky". I will buy him 12 O'Clock for Xmas.

My son thinks that classic war movies are better than the more modern war movies.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

oh, joy of joys.

In the post today I received my copy of Outrage by Arnaldur Indridason who is my favourite author. It is crime mystery set in Iceland.

In the next few days I should also be receiving the latest books (or rather the latest translated into English) by Karin Fossum and Johan Theorin so in July will be a good month for me as far as Scandinavian crime fiction is concerned.
