BATTLE: LOS ANGELES


We're doomed!

I knew all was lost (I'm talking about the movie not necessarily the ending) when after the title they spent the next 20 minutes doing character development. At first there were some intense moments but they quickly faded to just plain bad war movie cliches. 

Major issues:
  • The world's reaction to a massive incoming meteor storm.
  • Aliens are going to fight a land war?
  • Aliens from another planet don't have air capabilities?
  • Marines use paper maps and not GPS?
  • A bus? Really?
  • Don't they have sewers in Santa Monica?
  • Is Santa Monica part of LA? I thought this was Battle of LA not Santa Monica.
  • They didn't think the FOB's would be taken out?
  • They thought the missiles were gonna make it?
  • Why did they keep getting into helicopters?
  • They shoot an alien like 200 times but don't kill it and then they dissect one and suddenly they're killing them with 2-3 shots?
  • Alien drones with their weapons integrated into their bodies are pretty lousy shots.
  • No one should have survived this movie, including the audience. 

SPRING AHEAD


When your head finally hits your pillow tonight, you will have one less hour to enjoy it because at 2 AM Daylight Savings Time goes into effect and we spring forward one hour.

In addition to loosing an hour, you need to make time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and you should dust/vacuum them. Be sure to recycle the batteries.

For your added pleasure, Rachel Maddow explains that much of what we think about it is a myth.

THE DUMBEST THING MEME



Stevie (over at nicetoseestevieb) proposed a Five Degrees meme of sorts.  Five questions to be answered to give greater insight into the writer’s psyche. The first topic?  The Dumbest Thing you’ve done.

I've done many dumb things, we all have, but this event I thought would give you the best laugh. My boyfriend had had some early morning, pre-work fun and either I decided to keep my metal cockring (see above) on or it wouldn't come off. Either way, I wore it to work where I was managing a watch store with hardwood floors.

I no sooner opened the doors when I had my first customer. As I was showing her her selection, btw we were both on the same side of the counter, I felt a little run down my leg followed by a loud pinging! Fortunately I instantly realized what was happening and was able the get my foot over the cockring before she could see it. I don't know if she saw or heard anything but she never commented and I learned two lessons. The first is if you are going to leave the house wearing a metal cockring, wear briefs or boxer briefs NOT boxers, at least briefs stand of change of catching the ring if it comes off. Secondly, don't leave the house wearing a metal cockring unless it is part of the dress code of your destination.
