I think I'm going blonde.

This afternoon, I sat at my desk idly for over an hour, wondering why no one was giving me work to do. So I left early. When I got home a few hours later (I went to the movies first) and checked my work email, I realized that I had been sent an updated schedule with plenty of work early in the afternoon that I had somehow missed completely. Fortunately, my early leave didn’t hurt any of my deadlines, but I’m still kicking myself for not having stayed longer and being productive. Oh well.

I caught Ocean’s Thirteen. This is the summer of the sequel, and so far none of them have been really all that impressive. The one advantage Ocean’s had over Super-Man was chemistry. I actually believe that these guys like each other. I don’t believe that Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst ever hang out. It was fun (better than Twelve), but it pretty much left my consciousness upon my leaving the theatre.

I will admit, however, that Ellen Barkin rocks the pink dress. Some women are all about the little black dress (LDB in fashion speak), but she’s pure LPD. Fantastic.

It's true!!!

I only went to see all the beautiful people I can only long to be like!

It's also true the sequels are really sucking. Especially those which are third installments of what we can only hope will become trilogies. Although, Shrek 4 is already in production!!! :-(
