Blast From The Past

So today I went to see Django Unchained; I’m a Tarantino fan so of course I liked it. All these reviews about it being historically inaccurate and what not are so stupid. Did any of those people watch Inglourious Basterds? Django Unchained is the same type of movie; a good and bloody revenge flick. For the ones complaining about the gratuitous use of the word Nigger. Did any of them watch Jackie Brown? Besides the film was set during the time of slavery; we all know that word was thrown around a lot during that time. I’d rather go see a Tarantino movie then the crappy remakes that Hollywood keeps on insisting on doing. Going to the movies today did remind me of why I don’t usually go on opening day. There were two women there with babies and small children. The guy next to me kept getting up to get popcorn. It was just really annoying. I like to be able to watch a movie with no distractions.  So I’m on my way home from the movies and I see the man that I use to mess around with. The weird thing about it is that today was exactly one year since the last time I saw him. I have no interest in rekindling that though. He made it clear that he doesn’t want anymore children and I do. It seems like that is the one thing the men that I meet don’t get. Is it really too much to want a child of my own and not just be a stepmother to someone else’s?

Christmas Eve

It really doesn’t feel like that to me. I really don’t know when the last time I was in a Christmas mood was. It had to be before my grandfather got really sick. It was always our tradition to go see whatever new release that came out on Christmas. I knew he was getting worse when he didn’t want to go. I think the last movie we went to see on Christmas was the first Sherlock Holmes one. Even after he passed away I didn’t go I just stayed at home. This year I’m bringing the tradition back. I’m going to see Django Unchained and maybe Les Miserables too. So shopping this morning wasn’t so bad. The grocery store was pretty empty. I also got a surprise visit from my niece and nephew. He’s only 5 months and he weighs more than his sister! I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s a greedy little thing. When he’s hungry he screams until he turns red and starts choking on his spit. He would be a good advertisement on why not to have kids. I love him but I was glad when my sister came and got him.
