FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.

I was schedualed from 9:30-4pm today, I didn't get home until probably 2 still thinking I didn't work today. Just now checking my planner to see what hours I was getting this week.

The weirdest part is NO ONE called me from work.

I think I might be f-ed.
That's normally referred to as a 'BCM'.

As in 'Bad Career Move'.

Someone I know did that recently and he got his 2 weeks notice the next day.

Found awesome boots. Only ones of it's kind too. My size. $20. Bought boots.
Still don't have a job though. TT_TT

Just got back from class so I'm just chilling around, enjoying the meal, and reading the manga.

Need to do the dang projects. X.X

Just saw the new Sucker Punch trailer. While it looks like there's potential for a great visual and special effects fest, it did make me nostalgic for the days of Aliens and Terminator 2 -- where women could be action heroes without having to be "empowered" by school girl uniforms and buttless, boobs-out jumpsuits.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go tell some kids to get off my lawn.

All I know about their policy is we're 'allowed' 3 'official' no-call no-show days, but two taken consecutively is taken as you quitting. If you do it frequently like taking one day this month, one the other month, and so on, they can take that as you quitting too.



I suck.

I love playing old school Super Smash Bros. in the cafeteria with the other college guys. Finally glad I'm apart with a group. But man, so rusty. I didn't know they didn't have side B back then.

And right now I'm a bit hungry, and going to start making dinner for me and my dog soon.

I've made this complaint before, but the lead chick isnt even pretty. She looks crotchety. She resembles a confused bird, for some reason.

She just has a really 'old' face.

As for strong female leads; I like it when they dont have to resort to violence to be 'strong'.

I think it's fun to see women doing the whole Jason Statham/Bruce Willis thing sometimes, but I don't like that to be the limited definition of "strong" either. That's why I specifically said "action heroes" instead of "strong."

Sometimes the strongest characters are the ones you'd least expect. Every time I watch Sherlock Holmes I'm struck by how smart, courageous and self-possessed Mary is -- I adore her character and what the actress brought to the role -- even though Irene Adler is the one who is supposed to be all action and strong.

[Ignoring the first part of the comment because it's irrelevant to me whether they are considered pretty or not.]

If only Hollywood considered it irrelevant.

May possibly hack my hair off and dye it brown.

May chicken out half way.

I am hungry.

Puppies.

I think Emily Browning is quite pretty, although agreeing with glitter bomb that I wish her prettiness was more or less irrelevant to the role.

Sady Doyle on strong women in film:

Quote:
# Having a female character swing a sword around is the only thing a writer or director ever needs to do in order to establish that she is Strong.
# Action scenes performed by women, in your hallucination, are NOT typically performed by actresses with dainty girlish frames and smooth, feminine, non-muscular physiques. Because there is nothing wrong with those physiques, James Lileks, except that they are not at all intimidating physically and do not connote the actual, physical strength a girl would realistically need to beat up dudes, or handle most weapons. Thus, outside of your hallucination, we can say that action scenes starring women are often framed so as to render women less than intimidating, and more culturally palatable. A cute, tiny girl with a sword is acceptable and kind of adorable — she’s like a dog wearing people clothes! Or those cards with the little kids kissing each other! — but a girl with real biceps throwing a real punch is scary and gross. But in your hallucination, James Lileks, Keira Knightley is built like a lady boxer! So we can avoid that problem entirely!
I do love me some Sady Doyle of a Tuesday evening.

And I don't care how terrible that movie is, I'm going to watch the hell out of it.
