Out of Hiding

Wow, time got away from me again! Sorry. And I was doing so well. Such is life.

I had a busy week as usual full of lettering and working, and just a little bit of drawing on my new table. My brother was sick with the flu all week, and thusly I was ill also, and I'm still pretty fatigued.

The weekend was rather boring. I rearranged the kitchen cabinets, did some work and watched some TV. That's pretty much it. Oh, and I read some of the Dragonlance book I'm currently reading (see sidebar).

I finally saw The Number 23 tonight, and man was that wild. It kind of reminded me a little bit of the Johnny Depp movie The Secret Window with the twists and turns, and of course the reveal. I like psychological thrillers like that.

It is kind of wild about how relevant the number thing is though in real life. I remember Jim Carey discussing that on Jay Leno a while back.

I also watched Highlander: The Source last night, but we won't talk about that one. As I said elsewhere, if you're familiar with video game-to-film adaptations directed by Uwe Boll, it's about on that level, which really disappointed me because I was a fan of the Highlander TV series (the movie, like the show, focused on Duncan McLeod).

The 4400 season finale had some surprise turns as well, so that was a fun show to watch. I just finished watching it 30 minutes ago (yep, I kind of vegged out this weekend and just chilled).

Back to the busy work days tomorrow though.

It's been getting cold at night here already. Last night it got down to around 48 degrees and I had the heat on. Just the day before we had the air cranked to 69 because it was 80 something outside and humid. Gotta love the temperamental Kentucky weather... not!

I can't believe the holidays are already nearly upon us again.

I read on a friend's blog that OJ Simpson might be going back to trial, this time for a casino robbery? Man, OJ, what has happened to you? Your life is really starting to sound like a bad movie. Please, spare us the white Bronco chase tying up every channel of our TVs this time.

I've been watching a lot of cooking shows and competitions lately. Hey, I wanted to be a chef when I was a kid, I guess some of it's still in me. I do love to cook, though my taste preferences are far more limited than they used to be. It's still interesting to watch though and see what they come up with.

I guess that's it. I'm crawling back into my hole until tomorrow!

I loved Number 23, in fact I love any Jim Carrey movie, especially the serious ones.
I just got Heroes season 1 and Spiderman 3 on DVD. We're getting season 2 of Heroes here shortly after you guys so that's great.

I'm a Carrey fan too, and I especially loved The Majestic and The Truman Show, though I also enjoyed Bruce Almighty, The Mask and the Ace Ventura films. And I thought he was perfect in the Andy Kaufman film also. He's far more versatile than people give him credit for.

Let me know what you think of Heroes. I can't wait until it starts back up next week!
