Thank You for Smoking
The Bagel Rating System (BRS) for movies.
Today being the Saturday within the Easter weekend I didn't really do too much earth shattering stuff. The usual holiday things like puttering around the apartment, some spring cleaning, maybe some gardening, then seeing a movie with a bunch of other strangers looking for something low energy to do...
Let's rewind a bit to the spring cleaning. I'm sure I heard some gasps coming out over the internet, some of you readers might be in awe, maybe even in shock to think that I might actually be "cleaning" the apartment again. After all, it's only been a few months since the last cleaning took place.
To put those reader's minds back at ease I didn't do a whole lot of cleaning, not like the apartment cleaning of the blog of old. I went through some boxes and found some old, old, old CDs that I burnt back in the early 90s. I couldn't remember what was on them, even with the label, let alone what platform they worked on. I decided it was time to chuck them.
About 70 odd CDs later it was off to the garden. Technically I don't have a garden. Not yet anyway. Right now there's a pile of dried up dirt with clumps of grass growing from random spots in the back yard. I decided this year I would try my hand at agricultural cultivation. I have two goals. 1) to produce food, 2) to make a home for the worms.
With my landlords blessing and knowledge of what kind of soil I was dealing with I started tilling a small area with a dutch hoe I picked up at the local hardware store for only $10.00! The small patch was delibrate as I wanted to ease into this gardening thing. Worse case senario: if the plants all die I can get a garden gnome, place it in the centre of the dirt, then plant grass around it, and no one (other than you bloggers) would be the wiser.
As for the movie, I went to see "Thank you for smoking". I didn't have any expectations about the movie as I really didn't know what it was about. It's hil-ar-ious! A very well written movie where you wonder what the main character will do next. I recommend the movie to anyone who needs a good laugh. If I had a rating system I'd rate it a whole bagel.
