Mathematical proof that Scott is not the Antichrist!

Told ya!!!
  Mission Accomplished... Mostly...
Movies seen:

Transporter 2

I didn't wipe the goofy smile off my face the whole time. My only complaint was that while Kate Nauta did a good job in channeling Pris she is unfortunately not as good looking as Daryl Hannah. Surely they could afford to feed the poor thing.

Jeepers Creepers 2

Not bad. The creature effects/concept was fun. Nice gore, but not too much. It left me with several questions, not the least of which was why not put the thing through a mulcher, but overall there are worse monster movies out there. The first one was definitely better. Oh and Jonathan Breck is also better looking than Ms. Nauta.

I didn't get any writing done (the tv beast at my time). I did get to spend some good time with the kiddos, though EVERYONE is under the weather. And that's a weird expression because aren't we all? Anyway, that's all for now.

I drove a Chevy HHR on a business trip yesterday. Suh-weet ride.

I'm still plugging away on my novel. I'm up to Chapter Four. If you're interested in reading it drop me a comment.

My wife spray painted my hair orange and put a jack-o-lantern face on the back so that I could Halloween it up at work. I'll post a picture later. I thus have orange dandruff.

I'd really like to go see a movie this weekend and may see if I can do that, wife or no. Transporter 2 si playing at the $2 theater.

I really would like to go visit some friends in Asheville and may put wheels in motion toward that end.

Oh well, we'll see what the future holds.

  Of Busy-ness, Goosebumps, and Computers
Work has been much busier, thus fewer updates.

Goosebumps and not the R. L. Stine variety.

I am trying to build a laptop with Puppy Linux that doesn't require the use of a CD.

  Bald pate...
Jay wanted to see it. This may crash the whole internet.

  Tumblin' tumbleweeds...
Work life, home life, net life all slow. That's not necessarily a bad thing mind you.

Mayhap I shall write some more Stranded goodness today.

I really hope that I hear something one way or t'other about a certain employment opportunity.

  Sad, yet funny...
  New van...
Well the Astro is shot. We were told that to pass inspection we'd need to sink about $700 bucks into it. The heck with that we said. Turns out we can get a car loan (which 3 months ago was not possible). Leigh went by Car Max and today we shall be the proud owners of a 2001 Windstar:

I'm not thrilled with the thought of making a car payment again or paying comprehensive insurance again, but gas mileage will be better and it's a nice vehicle. The ratings on it seem good, the price is right, and above all it should be reliable.

A nice Kong painting from the cover of a British Mag. Can't wait to see this movie!

More desert island goodness for you to not read. ;-) Click the Scott's Brain link over there somewhere.
  More moods than Carter has liver pills...
Oh and my mood has much improved thanks to some good talking with a couple of friends and my lovely wife. Still not out of the proverbial woods yet though. So keep praying.
  Thunderbirds Are Go!

It was a fun movie. Yes I would have liked to have seen more of the adult Thunderbirds in action. Yes there was so much cheese that I'm sure I won't have a BM for another week. Yes there's no way that real teenagers would act like this. But when you look at the huge vehicles, Tracey Island, and Ben Kingsley playing a villain called The Hood (why the Hood when he doesn't wear one?) I think you know you're in fantasy land so it's okay.

I think that they pretty much nailed the look of the movie and the characters. I wouldn't buy it and probably wouldn't have rented it, but it wasn't at all a bad way to spend ninety minutes walking down memory lane via Starz. I give it a seven out of ten, mainly for the visuals.
