Thats right, I will be breaking into your house to steal exactly one of your Christmas cards EVERY YEAR

Then I'm pretty sure you'll have to leave me a card. I don't think I've received a card in years. I might get one from my mom, but I've slowly trained her to not send me cards for any holidays. I just throw them away after reading them. And it's really a waste of postage since we see each other at least once every few weeks anyways. So, if I get 0 cards, and you steal 1, that leaves me at -1 cards, so you would have to leave me a card. BOOM MATH'D!

i will purchase a card for you, mail it to you, and then come down to your place to break in to your mailbox and steal it!

No, I am NOT CRAZY!

If I mention once again my love for Firefly, Buffy, and occasionally even Agents of SHIELD (when it's not pissing me off), and also Alton Brown, do I not get taken out for bonchon?

::pout::

you will be taken out for extra bonchon, as I will use the deliciousness(and my black manliness) to seduce you to the non whedon side.

But, if it keeps one Christmas card with a posed photograph of people I can barely tolerate out of my house I'll make that sacrifice.

Hurray for: math! math jokes! 08th MS Team! Firefly! meeting the legendary Burt Ward, and everyone awesome from your childhood! (So, yay lisamarlene!) Chuck Norris (and jokes)! a rescued guy! cold weather (I miss it, but all this rain is alright!) and other stuff!

... I've still got internet bad enough that I'm hoping this goes through... fifth times the charm!

the wrongness of saying 08th ms team is on the same level of awesome as math and firefly resulted in your internet rebelling.

Alton Brown has recently stated that Los Angeles is the greatest food city in America.

This is only proof that he must be stopped.

Watching Disney's 'John Carter', because suffering is good for the soul.

So far:

The Red Men are not remotely red.
Everybody, especially Dejah, is wearing too many clothes.
Woolah is barking
Mors Kajak appears to be very badly constipated.
The plot lies in tatters, with only Sweaty Matai Shang's glow in the dark gauntlet to compensate.

NobodysHome's opinion of books turned into movies:

Step 1:
Hollywood exec 1: Hey, this book is famous and beloved by millions! We should turn it into a movie!
Hollywood exec 2: That's a great idea! And let's guarantee its profitability by bringing in a bunch of big-name stars, no matter how inappropriate they may be for the role! Let's see... I see for Little Red Riding Hood... either Arnold Schwarzenegger or Meryl Streep! Whaddya think?
Hollywood exec 1: Oh, that'll be just GRAND!

Step 2:
Hollywood exec 1: Hey, hack writer! We just bought the rights to this beloved-by-millions book, but we spent all our money on big-name stars and a big-budget director, so we can't afford to pay a decent writer. You'll do the book justice, right?
Hack Writer: Yeah, whatever.
Hollywood exec 1: Just make sure it has some "Zing!"

Step 3: (And NobodysHome's least-favorite step of all)
Hack Writer: Man, this book is booooooring! *I* can write better than *this*! I'll just change this character around, rewrite these major plot points, and, oh, wait, who's playing Little Red Riding Hood again? Schwarzenegger? Well, we can't have any of this "innocence" stuff! Better make her an ex-marine who lost her family in 'Nam. 'Cause it would be more 'gripping'.

Step 4:
Hollywood Exec 1: WTF?!?!!? This movie doesn't even remotely resemble the book! Cut out that scene, rearrange these scenes, and, wait a minute? What are we paying Arnie? Throw in more scenes with him in there somewhere. That'll bring in the fans!

=====
I can name ONE movie where I thought the movie was better than the book: The Iron Giant. Otherwise, I am always incensed at Hollywood's need to rewrite characters or major plot points.

I probably would have loved Lord of the Rings... if they hadn't rewritten Aragorn to be a pansy, and turned the battle for Helm's Deep into a stage-diving contest...

EDIT: OK. I think The Hunger Games didn't change a lot from the books, and I really enjoyed that trilogy of movies, but NobodysWife insists they changed quite a few things that I just didn't notice.

So, something happened a couple of months ago, and I just realized it this morning.

Back in April, I took my kids to Silicon Valley Comic Con, mostly so my daughter could meet Dr. Crusher and my son could see Buzz Aldrin. And they cosplayed and we looked at lots of artists booths and I got to meet almost *everyone* I loved from Sesame Street when I was a kid, and Mister McFeeley from Mister Rogers Neighborhood to boot, and it was awesome.

But while we were standing at the row of Sesame Street booths, a man started talking to me. Middle aged, shortish, a bit roundish, pleasant-faced... you know, kind of like the love child of Nobody's Home and Jerry Mathers. And he asked me why the kids and I were at Comic Con, what we enjoyed about it, what the big draws were for us. And we chatted a bit.
Then he casually mentioned, "Ya know, Adam West and Burt Ward are here, too."
"Yeah, I know," I said. "That's so cool. I liked the show. But, to be honest, I probably wouldn't know the guys if I bumped into them on the street."
He said, "Yeah, me too, I guess," and chuckled, and changed the subject.

So Netflix just added the entire Batman series and I was looking it up this morning because we're thinking about introducing the kids to it, and I remembered this conversation, and did some googling, and that guy?
He was Burt Ward.

Embarrassed.

At least you knew who he was, I had to google Burt Ward just now. And I wouldn't even recognize Adam West.

If...well, ya know...if he were still alive.

I recently watched the Hunger Games with my wife, who hasn't read the books. I had to explain to her...

Spoiler:
Katniss' anger toward Gale during the third movie, because the film doesn't translate Gale's ruthless trap-strategy, which ends up costing Prim her life, very well at all.

Overall though, I agree, a very good book-to-film adaptation.

Anyhow, that's funny -- LotR is my go-to example of a film adaptation that is on par with the books. To this day I honestly can't decide which I like better, despite my disappointment that Tom Bombadil and Goldberry were brutally cut from the films.

I guess Jackson maybe knew what he was about with those two, and not wanting to slow the story down or undermine the Ring's threat by introducing characters who are immune to its temptation. Maybe. Whatever, I'm so over it.

One line: "Cast off your clothes and run naked on the grass!"

And Tom Bombadil never appeared in any film or TV version of LotR, EVER.

Because... naked hobbits.
...shudder...

Today is a day for waiting rooms. Spent the morning and early afternoon at eye doctors. Then took kidlet to jujitsu. And now I'm in the waiting room at urgent care because my husband hurt his leg. :(

How badly is he hurt?

Could be a blood clot or a torn ligament or just a really nasty sprain. They don't know and they can't run the tests to tell until Monday. Basically that visit was a colossal waste of time. And quite frustrating as the doctor wasn't good at explaining things at all. Luckily I speak medical jargon and could translate. >:/

I went to the grocery store the other day, and a beautiful young woman came up to me. She said "I think you're the father of one of my kids." I said "Are you the stripper from my friend's bachelor party last year? The one I had sex with on the pool table, in front of all my friends, while your partner whipped my ass with a piece of wet celery?" She got a weird look on her face and said "No. I'm your son's teacher."

Usually the timing is predicated by when I'm able to get online at work. I'm not working tonight, and so could post whenever I felt like it. And I happened to feel like it early.
