I saw the movie JUNO on Friday night… I LOVED IT. The most amazing part of this film are the things that do not happen. I don’t want to give anything away if you have not seen it, but this subject matter has so many horrible pit-falls for a writer to fall into… JUNO does not fall into any of these over-used devices and runs from the beginning to the end as a simple, well-made film… It’s all about the pacing.
So in true Joe fashion I have listened to the soundtrack 3 times today… It’s great.
So as you can tell from the awesome shittiness of my blog lately, my ACTUAL life is going really GREAT… I had a moment last week when I was driving home that I could not help but smile and start giggling… I think the amputation of the “shit” in my soul (and life) has made (is making) me really happy.
So I guess that the whole thing about “laying it out” a while back was to warn you that I want to start talking more about what is happening RIGHT NOW in my life… Maybe you want me to talk more about my divorce… I really feel no need to do that right now for a million reasons but the main one is that I am done with that shit phase and am enjoying the hell out of moving forward.
… I have not been this happy since my Mom and I used to watch 90210 together… SPECIAL NOTE TO MY MOM: Thanks for watching that awesome crap with me.
So I have been putting the finishing touches on the players for the All-Star Baseball Classic. Pitchers, franchise players and managers are (for the most part) made and ready to go… HOLY SHIT that is going to be a crazy weekend. I have never drank beer in the morning, but I am thinking about trying it on the Championship Sunday of the Classic… Might help my nerd nerves.
Someday somebody is going to try to tell me the proper way to use the Ellipsis… you know what, I don’t care… I like using it like this… I think it shows you the pauses that I would have in my normal speaking voice. I AM THE BEST WRITER EVER!!!
I feel like I should read a REAL book… Honestly, part of me thinks that I would look cool if I carried around a book wherever I went… I like those book-carrying guys. They DO look cool.
