I am in the midst of having one of those days that reminds me of how life was pre-fire. I woke up late, I watched mindless television, I ate pizza and wings while still in bed, and I even drank a bit of wine while still in the bed. Irresponsible? Perhaps a bit, but dammit I deserve this type of mindless activity. I can get back to being a regular responsible adult once Monday comes right? Right.

I saw the movie Ocean's 13 last night, and it was incredibly boring. Yes the usual wit was still there, but how many times can you rob a casino and break all the rules in the process? Plus I think the point of those movies is to appeal to the ladies. I'm not ghey, but I'm no fool either. I know the combination of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle and Matt Damon appeals to women both black and white, and that alone is enough to insure the movie does well. Personally, I enjoyed looking at an aging, but still sexy Ellen Barkin. But as a whole the movie was a waste of time, and for Al Pacino, it was a waste of talent. He's been in a slew of mediocre movies here lately and it is kind of disappointing. This is a man who brought us Carlito's Way, The Godfather, Scent of a Woman, etc..So why would he take a role in this movie and play a cartoonish character?

For a sports fan, this time of year is extremely hard. The NBA finals is over, and even with the draft coming up, it is still hard to get motivated to watch a sporting event. Football is still two months away, baseball is alright, but very boring to watch in the middle of the summer, and boxing matches are few and far between. Sports fans all over the world need to unite during these times, and come up with some sort of activity that can sustain us during this drought. Otherwise, I'll be forced to hit up museums, movie theatres, and various other spots in search of entertainment, women, etc..And that is not a good look.
