    Sucktastic evening. The world has lost a warm, funny and generally all-around awesome person. My friend's partner passed at 6:45 p.m.

    I thoroughly enjoyed that joke, Tunick, and needed it.

    AFSnumbers: Sorry to hear the news. With the quick medical attention initially recieved, I was rooting for the guy to pull through. Not much "words" to make craptacular stuff like this easier. I can only try to focus on the fact that at least the person who passed was someone in my life worth missing...

    Hang in there.

    I have to go outside to smoke. :p


    anakinfansince1983: That is terrible to hear about. My heart goes to you, your friend & all those who knew the departed.


    I just got to the Arclight here in Hollywood, about to see Lincoln with my brother & a mutual friend. Such be a great film.

    Thanks ACoD and Tunick.

    On the Lincoln movie: I was a major buff of our 16th President at one time, I'm interested in hearing what type of take they do on this.

    *** 1/2 out of **** for Lincoln impeccable, impeccable acting, enthralling story (with a lot of it holding relevance today, especially with the Presidential election just happening) & some fine (though not 100% perfect) directing from Spielberg. Naturally on the way out (the movie ending just before midnight), the entire theater/lobby was swamped for those seeing the finale of the Twilight series.

    Anakinfan: So sorry to hear that! Please pass on my condolences to your friend. :(

    Busy agenda today; house-cleaning, cookie-baking, returning library books, and packing preparation for the Utah trip.

    Strength to you and your friends, anakinsfan.




    I had a piece of cake for breakfast. It was good. I have decided that the only time of day I can have treats like that is early on. Otherwise I'm up all night. Maybe I'm getting old.

    I'm sorry to hear about your friend AFS83. [:D]


    I'm hoping to see Lincon this weekend, seeing as how I'm pretty sure I can't get tickets to see Skyfall in IMAX.

    Bazinga'd: I didn't give Lincoln four stars because I felt the ending was a bit rushed, and there could have been a little more about certain aspects of the Civil War.

    I have studied Lincoln and Civil War Extensively. So I am anxious to see the movie, hopefully this weekend sometime. I did hear that Daniel Day Lewis is almost a shoe in for an Oscar with his performance. Is that true?

    I would say so... and Tommy Lee Jones ought to get a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance as Thaddeus Stevens. One of the highlights of the film.

    I honestly don't know which I'd rather see, Lincoln or Hitchcock. Both look great, have great leads and supporting players, cover a major historical figure, but I really only want to see one in theaters.

    And sorry to hear that, AF. Hope your friend is doing alright.

    Thanks everyone. My friend is holding up at least as much as can be expected; the shock factor is huge at the moment. He's one of the strongest people I know but this is still going to take a very long time.

    After the talk I've heard today about the Lincoln movie, I know I need to go see it this weekend.

    And the Heels stomped the Cavaliers.

    I've been watching the ceremony for/unveiling of Kareem Abdul Jabbar's statue (in front of the Staples Center) for the past hour, and it's been wonderful to watch/experience.

    What a great few weeks... a new Star Wars trilogy is in the works... a new Mass Effect 3 DLC is coming out (Glad we get to go back to Omega!) and they just announced that a Mass Effect 4 is in the works!

    I have a bit of a runny nose after working out in the cold today. I took a swipe at it with my hand and felt something on my face. So I grabbed a tissue and swiped again, removing the small amount of mucus dripping from my nose. Moments later, despite my nose not running, I took another swipe with my hand, I guess out of habit. I felt the same thing I felt the first time, only this time I felt more. It felt granular, like I had salt on my face. So I swiped again with the tissue. Moments later I once again swiped at my face with my hand and felt the same thing. This time I grabbed another tissue and wiped at it really well, to make sure I got whatever it was. I felt with my hand and it was still there! GAH! WHAT IS ON MY FACE!? So I went to the bathroom to check it out in the mirror and it turns out it was about 24 hours worth of grainy mustache stubble, as I last shaved last night at about this time, instead of in the morning like I usually do.

    :oops:
