What happened to me?

I’m sitting here in Las Vegas watching The Devil Wears Prada and I’m enjoying it… I think there must be something wrong with me… I will say though this is one of Meryl Streep’s best role I’ve ever seen, of course outside of Prairie Home Companion.

Ok there must be something wrong with me, I’m enjoying this movie way to much. Must be the photofag in me coming out!

Zumanity

Ok so I like live entertainment, well let’s be honest I love live entertainment. I just got back from watching the Cirque Du Soleil show Zumanity, it’s billed as the sensual side of Cirque and they don’t disappoint. Yes there’s nudity, but you ignore it for the most part. The players are incredible, the acts are designed to draw you into the show and they go further then most other Cirque shows I’ve seen. They interact with the audience in ways that are meant to completely draw you in and make you forget you troubles for a few hours.

When reviewing live entertainment, the highest rating I can give anything is will I go again? In this case I will, I will go see Zumanity again the next time I’m in Vegas. Take that how you will, but next time I want to go with a larger group.

Friends part 2

I’ve discovered some of my friends have a knack for calling right when I need to talk. Thanks again to my pirate friend for calling at the most opportune time, even though there was a brass band that drove you to the phone I’m still happy to have heard from you!

Movies…

Went to see The Simpsons movie and I was less then impressed. Although the full mocking of our government is great, it doesn’t make for a movie that has legs. This movie has it’s high points and it’s low points, it’s worth renting or seeing in a matinee, but I wouldn’t pay full price to see it if I could avoid it.

There are a few other movies that I’m waiting to see, but I’ll have to see them either here in Vegas or Tampa, which is where I head next.

Vegas, how do I hate thee

I’ve never been a fan of Vegas, even with it’s draws of scantily clad people and cheap drinks if you’re throwing money away, I’ve ever been happy here. This is a place of bad memories and frankly I’ve never been drawn to try and make new ones here. But I’m here now and I might as well make the best of it. Maybe I’ll go hiking in the desert this weekend, of course I didn’t bring my camera, but that’s alright. I suppose I’m looking forward to hiking in red rock as well so there is something to look forward to here.

One cannot have religion without humor…

The Pope arrives in heaven, where St. Peter awaites him. St. Peter asks the Pope who he is.
The Pope : I am the Pope.
St. Peter: Who? There’s no such name in my book.
The Pope : I’m the representative of God on Earth.
St. Peter: Does God have a representative? He didn’t tell me…
The Pope : But I am the leader of the Catholic Church…
St. Peter: The Catholic church… Never heard of it… Wait, I’ll check with the boss.
St. Peter walks away trough Heaven’s Gate to talk with God.
St. Peter: There’s a dude standing outside who claims he’s your representative on earth.
God : I don’t have a representative on earth, not that I know of… Wait, I’ll ask Jesus.
(yells for Jesus)
Jesus : Yes father, what’s up?
God and St. Peter explain the situation.
Jesus : Wait, I’ll go outside and have a little chat with that fellow.
Ten minutes pass and Jesus reenters the room laughing out loud. After a few minutes St. Peter asks Jesus why he’s laughing.
Jesus : Remember that fishing club I started 2000 years ago? It still exists!

I don’t know who wrote this originally, all I know is I found it on some Germans’ blog.

I’d rather be right than nice.

I’ve been called many things in my life, quite a few of them aren’t very nice. My favorite used to be “Little Hitler” with “Napoleon” coming is as a close second, although when an angry little person said they used to call me “Cartman” as well I got a little upset. Then I remembered who I was and where I’ve been. Not to say I’ve done more then this angry little person, but I had to come back with a simple line “was it ever bad? did the show or event ever go bad? No? then fuck off!”

I found this quote tonight and it made me happy, it will make it to the blog, which is the equivilant of putting it on my binder in high school :). “I’d rather be right than nice.”
