There is seriously no pattern to this… I’m actually this randomWednesday May 27, 2009 - Author: NightStorm -
I recall saying once that I was not much of a blogger. I think what I actually meant to say was that while I may be a bit of a blogger, I was (and am) by no means a consistant blogger.
Tami and I went to see the new Tom Hanks movie the other night… Angels And Demons. Now, while a lot of people are claiming this to be a sequal to The Da Vinci Code, the book (and the timeline) actually takes place beforehand. I still haven’t quite figured out if the movie is, though. They reference a few times his (Professor Landon) past dealings with the Church… now, whether this is hinting at the events of Da Vinci, or just some random past event, I can not say. The movie as a whole though, I felt was very well done, if not somewhat rushed. Not rushed in the sense of missing out on the plotline altogether, but just… rushed. They movied quickly from one point to the next, leaving little time to actually digest what had just happened. There were a few points in the movie that actually seemed blurred… while they are dealing with one point, a second and third get thrown out there as well, almost as an afterthought. It all tied together nicely by the end of the movie though, and even left you guessing just a little as to who the “bad guy(s)” really are. You think you have it all figured out (thinking that it’s some weak plotline just to make sales), then wham, big twist at the end and you’re left thinking “Oh my gawds, how did I miss that???”. It even has you going over the movie again in your head, with the realizations that you did actually miss those little hints and clues that lead to the final outcome… as a single hint, it’s meaningless… but once you put them all together, it’s like the Fort Knox of secrets playing out.
I am curious as to how the Church is going to react to the movie. Its not like it’s Anti-Christian or Anti-Vatican… there’s even a nice little piece at the end where Landon (Hanks) realizes that things aren’t really all that bad in Vatican City. the movie definately does say a lot about the (alleged) secrets of the Vatican vaults, leaving one to wonder (yet again) just how much might really be hidden by the Church.
Anyhow, on to the personal part of my bi-annual post. You know, the part that usually signifies the fact that I’ve been working on a post for around a week, and just never actually got around to posting it (this is, of course, one of those cases). To put it simply, I feel like crap. Have for about a week now, off and on. I blame John at work. Why? He was sick, and I see him at work once in a while… therefore I have decided to make the connection between him bringing the plague to work, and myself now feeling “bleh”. My blog, my right. 😛
These 4:30 AM morning are starting to wear thin… I know there are some people who like the idea of starting real early, and getting off work in the early afternoon as a tradeoff… I’ve never been a morning person, so this new schedule is REALLY starting to get to me. Not to mention that I notice myself snapping at people more at work. It’s not their fault that I’m not a “people person”, so I should probably be spending more time appologizing to them for my temper… but I noticed today that by snapping once, I actually managed to get something to happen the way I had planned it, as opposed to how the salesman decided to make it at the last second. I think I just miss spending time outside, and less time locked down in a little office… even if it is one with windows.
At any rate, I have a real packed day tomorrow, so I should probably get this posted and head for a shower and bed. Hope that my 2 or 3 readers are doing well, and managing to avoid the bug going around. Take care of yourselves, and see you all again in a few months… you know, when I get around to posting again. 😉
