Pathetico, I know. But it's tradition. You can't kill a tradition.   
11:30am 25/02/2007
 

It's yet again Oscar time, and, thusly, it's yet again time for me to make my totally accurate and awesomely right predictions of the winners. So here are the nominees...

Performance by an actor in a leading role
Leonardo DiCaprio - BLOOD DIAMOND
Ryan Gosling - HALF NELSON
Peter O'Toole - VENUS
Will Smith - THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS
Forest Whitaker - THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND

Okay, yeah, so yet again I'm going to look like a major bitch for saying I'm going to win the Oscar, but fucking think about it for a second before you jump on my ass about this. I've been nominated, like, three times now, and I still haven't won yet. By now the academy must be thinking "this guy Dicaprio is a pretty fucking raw talent, we should just give him the award and get it over with". I know everyone thinks it's dgoing to be Forest Whitaker or, like, Peter O'Toole or someone like that, but you know what? When it comes down to it, I'm the better man. And the better man always wins.

Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Alan Arkin - LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
Jackie Earle Haley - LITTLE CHILDREN
Djimon Hounsou - BLOOD DIAMOND
Eddie Murphy - DREAMGIRLS
Mark Wahlberg - THE DEPARTED

Okay, see, this is the thing, right? Marky and I, we go way back. I mean, my main man Djimon was pretty righteous in Blood Diamond, but you gotta know that Marky was even more powerful in The Departed. And you gotta know he's ripped, too. So if I said he wasn't gonna win, you gotta know he'd kick my ass. We're friends, but I mean, we're not good enough friends that we can't kick eachother's asses every once in a time, a'ight? A'ight.

Performance by an actress in a leading role
Penélope Cruz - VOLVER
Judi Dench - NOTES ON A SCANDAL
Helen Mirren - THE QUEEN
Meryl Streep - THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
Kate Winslet - LITTLE CHILDREN

I know what y'all are thinking. Y'all are thinking "but Leo, what about Kate Winslet?" But you fucking know what? Kate is a bitch. And Meryl is my bitch. I mean, she's awesome. And I know what else you're thinking. Y'all are thinking that Helen Mirren is gonna win for The Queen, am I right? Well, tough shit. She's not gonna win. Anyone can impersonate the Queen of England. I could fucking play the Queen of England and, shit, maybe even got an Oscar nod for it, too. So you know what? Meryl all the way.

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Adriana Barraza - BABEL
Cate Blanchett - NOTES ON A SCANDAL
Abigail Breslin - LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
Jennifer Hudson - DREAMGIRLS
Rinko Kikuchi - BABEL

Cate is a real talent. I know it probably seems like I'm just picking all of my friends, but you know what? No. Because in this category I'm actually going by talent... plus the only other nominee I've even fucking heard of is Jennifer Hudson and, sorry, but Christ in hell, I can't for the life of me understand why she's been nominated for a fucking OSCAR! Was it slim pickings this year?

Best animated feature film of the year
CARS
HAPPY FEET
MONSTER HOUSE

Fucking Monster House, man. All the fucking way. When that fucking Monster House stuck it's rug-tongue out and swallowed up the fucking kid, man? It gave me fucking shivers. It fucking made me almost cry real tears. Fucking Oscar worthy moment, right there, folks.

Achievement in art direction
DREAMGIRLS
THE GOOD SHEPHERD
PAN'S LABYRINTH
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST
THE PRESTIGE

Sorry, but I gotta go with the awesome Pirates of the Caribbean for this one. I saw the others, too, and they were alright. Wait, actually, The Good Shepherd was kind of boring art direction wise, Dream Girls gave me a headache with all the bright lights, Pan's Labyrinth gave me a headache from all the dark scenes (I had to squint to see what was fucking going on!), and the Prestige made my eyes bleed. I don't know why... Actually, I'm not entirely sure that was connected to watching the film. Huh. Maybe I should get that checked out...

Achievement in cinematography
THE BLACK DAHLIA
CHILDREN OF MEN
THE ILLUSIONIST
PAN'S LABYRINTH
THE PRESTIGE

Having already said that it gave me a headache to watch, I think that that's probably what the Academy is looking for cinematographically. If "cinematographically" is a word. The Prestige and The Illusionist were basically the same movie with different actors, although the Prestige was a bit more awesome for having David Bowie. Children of Men was boring as shit and Black Dahlia was fucking disappointing as all shit. Shit, shit, fuck, fuck. :P

Achievement in costume design
CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
DREAMGIRLS
MARIE ANTOINETTE
THE QUEEN

It's fucking easy to make costumes for present-day set films like The Queen and The Devil Wears Prada, but the period shit must be fucking hard. And you know, I totally saw this film and was like "wow". So yeah. It's the winner in my mindies.

Achievement in directing
BABEL
THE DEPARTED
LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA
THE QUEEN
UNITED 93

I would say United 93, because if you don't like that movie you're not a true fucking patriot. But you know, Martin Scorsese fucking deserves this award. He's been neglected by the academy for too fucking long. Give the man his award already for Jesus sake!

Best documentary feature
DELIVER US FROM EVIL
AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
IRAQ IN FRAGMENTS
JESUS CAMP
MY COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY 

Fucking too right the world's in trouble! Fucking right we're standing by and watching it go to shit! And too fucking right we're making it worse! Fucking yeah, Al Gore. You tell us how horrible we are. Make us see it and yeah, get an Oscar for it. My main man. Run for president again and clean up this stinkin' country!

Best documentary short subject
THE BLOOD OF YINGZHOU DISTRICT
RECYCLED LIFE
REHEARSING A DREAM
TWO HANDS 

Honestly? I haven't seen any of these. And honestly? I don't care. And even more honestly? I just picked this one for its name. I'm assuming it's about the enviornment, but I'm probably way off. Whatever. Whatever!

Achievement in film editing
BABEL
BLOOD DIAMOND
CHILDREN OF MEN
THE DEPARTED
UNITED 93

FUCKING DON'T DO THIS TO ME, BITCHES! Damn the Academy!!! Fucking shit... Both will win. There. It'll be the first tie ever on the Oscars. Big surprise! Everyone will be shocked!

Best foreign language film of the year
AFTER THE WEDDING
DAYS OF GLORY (INDIGÈNES)
THE LIVES OF OTHERS
PAN'S LABYRINTH
WATER 

Okay, I gotta say. That's it. I gotta say. No, I'm kidding. Okay, but seriously here. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!!!! No. This is gonna win because it's controversial. That's it. It's not an awesome film or anything. It'll win because no one actually expects it to win. Fuck yeah.

Achievement in makeup
APOCALYPTO
CLICK
PAN'S LABYRINTH

Fucking Mel Gibson, man. I don't give a shit what he has to say about Jews or women, this was a fucking awesome film. Shit yeah. I love the bit with the gratuitous violence. That was my favourite part. :)

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original score)
BABEL
THE GOOD GERMAN
NOTES ON A SCANDAL
PAN'S LABYRINTH
THE QUEEN

I don't know why this film wasn't nominated for a cinematography award or any of the visual shit. Oh well. The music was fucking the shit. There we go. There we are. And this is the presnettttt,,,....

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song)
"I Need to Wake Up" - AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
"Listen" - DREAMGIRLS
"Love You I Do" - DREAMGIRLS
"Our Town" - CARS
"Patience" - DREAMGIRLS

You know what? I'm disappointed, too, but it's gonna be one of the stupid Dream Girls songs.  And to make life even shittier it's probably going to be fucking "Love You I Do". Fucking hell. Why does the category keep on sucking for the last couple of years? Let's just drop it if we're going to skim the bottom of the fucking barrel over and over again! What was that last fucking year? Fucking "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp"??? What the fuck was that???

  This Oscar nom is kind of making me get my act together. Trying to piece things together. Get my life in order. You know?

Claire's disappeared. Erik's disappeared. Jonathan's disappeared. Most of my celeb friends have probably bit the dust or left for the other Leo. What's happened to everyone?

To those I've recently added: Don't just not add me because there's another Leo (but I have been around longer than him, so there!), please actually check out some of my entries first before you decide whether or not you wanna be my friend. Thanks.

♥-Leo

What's the newizzle, my shizzlies?

mood: Stoked
Here are my sexually explicit (not) Oscar predictions:

Performance by an actor in a leading role
Don Cheadle in “Hotel Rwanda”
Johnny Depp in “Finding Neverland”
Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Aviator”
Clint Eastwood in “Million Dollar Baby”
Jamie Foxx in “Ray”

Can I just say something before y'all just think I'm saying I should win because I'm a selfish cunt? Thanks. Okay, I'm saying this from a perfectly unbiased side. I actually went out and saw all these films, just so I could have the most bestest opinion. You know, it doesn't just come down to the fact that I want to win, but it comes down to the fact that I was better than everyone else, hands down. I just tried a little harder, and rocked a little harder. Maybe if the others had given their performances more oomf than maybe I'd be saying that they should win, but they didn't. And so I deserve the statuette most. And I'm gonna win.

Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Alan Alda in “The Aviator”
Thomas Haden Church in “Sideways”
Jamie Foxx in “Collateral”
Morgan Freeman in “Million Dollar Baby”
Clive Owen in “Closer”

Now, y'all might think I'm being biased again, but I gotta say, if that's what y'all are thinking than y'all are wrong wrong wrong. Alan Alda is the best actor in the world. He deserves this award like no other, and he'll win, hands down.

Performance by an actress in a leading role
Annette Bening in “Being Julia”
Catalina Sandino Moreno in “Maria Full of Grace”
Imelda Staunton in “Vera Drake”
Hilary Swank in “Million Dollar Baby”
Kate Winslet in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”

You may say "Leo, but what about your Titanic co-star Kate Winslet?", but you know what? Imelda Staunton gave such power to her performance (like I did in The Aviator) that I think she really should go home with the Oscar. Plus she's hot.

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Cate Blanchett in “The Aviator”
Laura Linney in “Kinsey”
Virginia Madsen in “Sideways”
Sophie Okonedo in “Hotel Rwanda”
Natalie Portman in “Closer”

Okay, Cate Blanchett should totally win, because she's like, the best actress we've got in Hollywood at the moment, but you know, it's probably going to go to Virginia Madsen, because you know, she's a b-lister, and this is the one chance she's got at grabbing the golden guy (although she should've won for "Candyman"), so it'll go to her. Cate will have her day, though.

Best animated feature film of the year
“The Incredibles” Brad Birb
“Shark Tale” Bill Damaschke
“Shrek 2” Andrew Adamson

Hell-oies!!! "Shrek 2" was the funniest movie of the year. Having "Shark Tale" and "The Incredibles" in the same category is just an insult!

Achievement in art direction
“The Aviator”
Art Direction: Dante Ferretti
Set Decoration: Francesca Lo Schiavo

“Finding Neverland”
Art Direction: Gemma Jackson
Set Decoration: Trisha Edwards
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Art Direction: Rick Heinrichs
Set Decoration: Cheryl Carasik
“The Phantom of the Opera”
Art Direction: Anthony Pratt
Set Decoration: Celia Bobak
“A Very Long Engagement”
Art Direction: Aline Bonetto

I gotta say, Dante and Francesca really out-did theirselves this time. If anything else wins it'll be a horrible crime against humanity.

Achievement in cinematography
“The Aviator”
Robert Richardson

“House of Flying Daggers”
Zhao Xiaoding
“The Passion of the Christ”
Caleb Deschanel
“The Phantom of the Opera”
John Mathieson
“A Very Long Engagement”
Bruno Delbonnel

CHA!! YOU KNOW WHAT?? UH-UH!! Totally Robert Richardson should win. Caleb Deschanel can kiss my shitty white ass! You know what I think of your torturific blood fest? I think it sucks bad!

Achievement in costume design
“The Aviator”
Sandy Powell
“Finding Neverland”
Alexandra Byrne
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Colleen Atwood

“Ray”
Sharen Davis
“Troy”
Bob Ringwood

I'd love to have said Sandy for this one, but I saw LSASoUE, and I was bllloooooowwwwnnn awwwwaaaaaaayyyyyy.......way...waayyy....waayyyyy....WHOOSH!!!! Ahahha. That's me being blown away. ;B

Achievement in directing
“The Aviator” Martin Scorsese
“Million Dollar Baby” Clint Eastwood
“Ray” Taylor Hackford
“Sideways” Alexander Payne
“Vera Drake” Mike Leigh

You know what? I'm fucking sick of people even fucking debating this. Martin Scorsese's waited long e-fucking-nough. I mean, he's made millions of America's best movies and hasn't gotten one fucking Oscar for them! The Academy is so fucked in the brain if they don't give him this it's unbelievable. Scorsese's movies are the reason I'm so proud to be American!

Best documentary feature

“Collateral”
Jim Miller and Paul Rubell
“Finding Neverland”
Matt Chesse
“Million Dollar Baby”
Joel Cox
“Ray”

Now. I love Thelma, I really heart her, but you know, she cut that one scene I wanted to keep.. Plus, the editing in "Ray" was pretty alright.

Best foreign language film of the year
“As It Is in Heaven”
A GF Studios Production
Sweden
“The Chorus (Les Choristes)”

France
“Downfall”
A Constantin Film Production
Germany

“The Sea Inside”
A Sogecine and Himenóptero Production
Spain
“Yesterday”
A Videovision Entertainment Production
South Africa

I've said it before, and I'll say it again just for good measure, you can't beat the Germans. And you really shouldn't even attempt it. Plus, all these other movies were just a little too mundane and even a bit depressing for me. I thought "Downfall" really stood out.

Achievement in makeup
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Valli O’Reilly and Bill Corso

“The Passion of the Christ”
Keith Vanderlaan and Christien Tinsley
“The Sea Inside”
Jo Allen and Manuel García

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you can't beat the Germans. Just kidding! I was blown away. Jim Carey really scared me to death. And I'm, like, 30 or something.

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original score)

“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” John Williams
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” Thomas Newman
“The Passion of the Christ” John Debney
“The Village” James Newton Howard

SNUB THE AVIATOR WILL YOU??? WELL FUCK YOU!!! I think John William's has been ignored too long, don't you?

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song)

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyric by Charles Hart
“Look To Your Path (Vois Sur Ton Chemin)” from “The Chorus (Les Choristes)”
Music by Bruno Coulais
Lyric by Christophe Barratier

Okay, here's how it goes; snub my movie once, shame on you, snub it twice, burn to death in eternal damnation. I think Loudon Wainwright III's song should've won. But I'll go with "Accidentally in Love" out of default.

Best motion picture of the year
“The Aviator”

Michael Mann and Graham King, Producers

Achievement in sound editing
“The Incredibles” Michael Silvers and Randy Thom
“The Polar Express” Randy Thom and Dennis Leonard
“Spider-Man 2” Paul N.J. Ottosson

Spider-man 2. You know, even though it would've meant me winning over him, I'm still pissed at the Academy for snubbing Tobey again.

As much as I'd liked to have said Spider-man 2, I have to say HPatPoA, and you know why? BECAUSE IT ROCKED LIKE ASS!!!!

Adapted screenplay

“Sideways”

One question, I kep hearing about this "Closer" movie, and how awesome it is, but if it's so fucking awesome, how come it wasn't nominated for barely anything?? Okay, I think "Before Sunset" was awesome. Thumbs up.

Original screenplay
“The Aviator”
Written by John Logan

“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”
Screenplay by Charlie Kaufman
Story by Charlie Kaufman & Michel Gondry & Pierre Bismuth
“Hotel Rwanda”
Written by Keir Pearson & Terry George
“The Incredibles”
Written by Brad Bird
“Vera Drake”
Written by Mike Leigh

If it comes down to these five choices, it has to be "The Aviator". If "The Aviator" hadn't been nomintaed then I would've chose "Vera Drake", but you know, it was, so fuck everyone else. :P

Again, it was a little too easy this year. But you know what? I'm glad that "The Aviator" will win all those awards. It totally deserves it. And you know what? Watch out for Leo winning best actor. 'Cause it's gonna happen. And you know what? If it doesn't I'll just have to boycott the winners movies! HAWHAW!!!

Yeah, you could say I'm a sore loser, but you could also say that I know what I want, and how to get it. And if I don't, someone else gets it. If you catch my drifties. ;P

Whoops. I haven't been around in a long time, have I? I guess I've been busy/lazy.

The trailer for the Aviator has been released, you can watch it here. It's got some major hotties in it. Like Gwen Stefani, Cate Blanchett, the so-so-sexy Kate Beckinsale, and the extremely hot Jude Law. And don't forget the utterly sex machinismness of Rufus Wainright, who makes my hot pants catch on fire. *giggles like a girly*

So that's new, and I'm going to produce a film called Gardener of Eden, and I executive produced another one called The Assassination of Richard Nixon, with Sean Penn and Naomi Watts in it. That was fucking awesome.

I cocksucking love Danny Michel! Ahehehhehehehehehe!!!

THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

That's a lot more than last year, I'm sure. I still think it would've been totally awesome to have seen Jack White perform "Wayfaring Stranger", even if he didn't win. But of course, that's not an original, is it?

I think it's awesome that LOTR won so many awards, man. I mean, sure, when I saw the first one I was a bit skeptical about the whole thing, but I think Peter Jackson and crew really pulled the whole thing together beautifully in the end.

The problem with me is, I had to much faith in the underdogs. Well, not next year!

It's that time of year again, folks!!   
10:14am 28/02/2004
  Last year I didn't go to the Oscars, but I might this year. You'll just have to watch and find out! ;) Here are my predictions for this year. Let's see if I can get more right than I did last year. Again, the people I think are going to win are in red, and all the losers are in other colours.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
Johnny Depp - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL
Ben Kingsley - HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG
Jude Law - COLD MOUNTAIN
Bill Murray - LOST IN TRANSLATION
Sean Penn - MYSTIC RIVER

I really think my main man Johnny Depp is long overdue for this one. I didn't see Pirates of the Caribbean, but I saw the trailer and some TV spots, and I think he looks really hilarious and gay in it, so I'm going to say Deppy.

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Alec Baldwin - THE COOLER
Benicio Del Toro - 21 GRAMS
Djimon Hounsou - IN AMERICA
Tim Robbins - MYSTIC RIVER
Ken Watanabe - THE LAST SAMURAI

I saw The Last Samurai, and I thought that Ken Watanabe totally out-acted Tom Cruise, which I think is a daring thing to do. Seeing as Tom Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman.

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Keisha Castle-Hughes - WHALE RIDER
Diane Keaton - SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE
Samantha Morton - IN AMERICA
Charlize Theron - MONSTER
Naomi Watts - 21 GRAMS

I'd love to see Diane Keaton win, because she was great to me on the set of Marvin's Room, but you know, I think that little Keisha Castle-Hughes has a good chance. She's a newbie, but everyone loves an underdog, which she certainly is, up against Charliez Theron in Monster. I saw Monster, and I wasn't too impressed. I could've played that role in my sleep.

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Shohreh Aghdashloo - HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG
Patricia Clarkson - PIECES OF APRIL
Marcia Gay Harden - MYSTIC RIVER
Holly Hunter - THIRTEEN
Renée Zellweger - COLD MOUNTAIN

I have to say, I love Renee Zellweger's lips. She's got that sexy pouty thing going on that really rattles my soul. And there's something about her that reminds me of someone I knew on Live Journal...

DOCUMENTARY FEATURE
BALSEROS
CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS
THE FOG OF WAR
MY ARCHITECT

I've heard a lot about Capturing the Friedmans, but really, I've heard TOO much. It's made it so I don't ever want to see it. And so I don't want it to win. My Architect all the way.

Me and Erik agree. LOTR. All the way. But I also didn't mind Master and Commander. I mean, when that dude got sliced open, and you saw his ribs, and it was all bloody and disgusting... that's still in my nightmares at night. With the charging Orcs ...Or did I dream that scene?

I'm going to have to pick an oddball this time! Mystic River, I thought, was a great script. I mean, that one line, that one one... you know.. When Sean Penn is crying and he says he can't even cry for his own daughter, and then Tim Robbins *sobs!!* HE SAYS THAT HE IS CRYING!!!! *cries!!!*

DIRTY PRETTY THINGS
FINDING NEMO

Nemo, man. You can't beat Nemo.


This year was almost TOO easy. I'm sort of disappointed. Especially in the academy. Man, I hate those guys. Like, why do you have to (and I was saying this to Claire just the other day) have a movie out recently to be nominated? Now Charlie Chaplin can never win for that one where he eats the shoe! Way to go, you bastards!!

Also, I find that people are most remembered if they do something nutty or weird or whatever during their acceptance speeches. Like when Adrien Brody kissed Halle Berry last year, or when Michael Moore said the thing about Bush, you know, so when I win, I'm going to pull down my pants, okay? I'm going to moon the audience. That'll get me in the memory banks of people. Or perhaps, I'll explode myself on stage. LOL! JK! Yeah, or trip and pretend I'm totally hurt and ahahahhaha!!! That one was Erik's. Erik's wondering why he's never been nominated. Because, my son, you haven't done anything really big recently.

Gotta flee! Oh, and me and Erik want 50 First Dates to be nominated for best picture next year. And I want Eurotrip to win for best original screenplay. AHHAHA!! And I want The Aviator to get me the golden statuette. Beotches. ;P

P.S. What's with snubbing that Russian Ark movie, y'alls?
P.P.S. And John Anthony Gillis didn't get a nom for Cold Mountain?! Y'alls are fucked in the brains!

FEBRUARY?!   
10:37am 03/02/2004
  Holy shit! I just realised that it's February! Crap... what do I have to do this month? a lot? I hope not. Wow, that rhymed! Let's do dis a double time! Aw yeah!

For the last few days I've been thinking it was still January! Shit! I guess I kind of lost track of time. That's one problem with cutting yourself off from the world, I guess.

I cut myself shaving and when I put the after-shave on it stung like a son of a bitch. That stuff should be illegal or something. It stinks like shit or something. Which totally reminds me of this one time I was at this nightclub last month and I had to use the toilet and let's just say someone had taken a crap and hadn't flushed, so I flushed it and it started to overflow. And that was the only toilet. They didn't even have one of those cool ones with a bunch of stalls or anything. So I had to get the janitor and he thought that I had laid the crap and gave me this look. God, I was fucking pissed. All I wanting to do was take a leak, but anyways.

Anyways, that's my crass story for the day, y'all.

mood: cut-off
After the Golden Globes I thought I'd take a little break from the media and all that, so I also took a break from TV, computer, radio, and people for a few days. Which means I missed the Super Bowl. I hope I didn't miss anything saucy.

Speaking of the Globes, when I presented that award to the Lord of the Rings gang, not one of the ingrates even gave me a hug or anything. And I expected at least Liv or Cate to give me a little kiss, but no. I actually especially expected Cate to kiss me or something, seeing as we became such good friends on the set of The Aviator. Oh well... at least Gwen was nice to me.

Oh, a funny story. I took a cab to the Globes, and I got in the back so that I wouldn't be bothered by any of those friggin' reporters. Hey, at least us guys don't get bgged about "who (we're) wearing".

I haven't watched any TV since the sunday before last. I can't stand all that post-award show coverage. Or pre-award show coverage, for that matter.

Next year, you'll see, Leo will have a nomination! Yep! Leo's talking in the third person! Leo will be nominated for his greatass work in The Aviator! You mark my words!

No really, mark my words. :P

Fly Fishin' With Claire :P

mood: recumbent
Earlier today I went to the shopping store and bought a new pair of underwears because mine suck ass. I also picked up some freezies and me and Claire ate them in the parking lot outside of my apartment building. We talked about the upcoming fishing season and what would be the best tackle. Claire and I don't really find fishing interesting, in fact, as far as I know, neither of us have done it before in our lives, but you know, it was fun. She suggested worms. I suggested flies. She suggested nachos. I suggested cheesie-os. She suggested waiting 'til spring, or even summer. I suggested ice fishing. But then I thought about the idea of sitting on ice fishing. And I thought maybe no. No, maybe not.

And then we bought some icecream and ate that in the park. It was a balmy snowy winters day. Cold as fuck! But it was our summer in our hearts.

We're not dating, btw!!!

MERRY LATE CHRISTMAS, GUYS! :P

Christmas was cool. Me and Roman went out clubbing and picked up some chicks and had a good time and then went back to our place for our frozen turkey dinners and exchanged Christmas gifts. Then Clairey came over for a bit, and I gave her her present which was this awesome present that I got for only under $80! And then we did stockings or whatever and watched the tree.

It was awesome.
