Les Films

I was verbally tagged to complete this. Please enjoy this Meme about MOVIES.

PS I'm sorry if its lame.

Name a movie you’ve been meaning to see forever: I still haven't seen Titanic, although I'm torn as to whether or not I actually want to. But I do want to see Breakfast at Tiffanys -sometimes I can't even believe that I haven't yet!

Steal one costume from a movie for your wardrobe: Well, Jiggilypuff has a sweet costume in the Pokemon movies, but I already have that. So if I could have any other one I'd go with any of Natalie Portmans outfits from Star Wars.

Your favorite film franchise is: I love Indiana Jones and The Land Before Time

Invite five (living) movie people over for dinner. Who are they? And Why would you invite them? ok ok
1. Cher. She's won an Academy Award people.
2. Tom Arnold. He's genius in my favorite flick The Stupids.
3. John Williams. Movies without music would be a different story.
4. Jude Law. He's beautiful.
5. Steven Spielberg

What is the appropriate punishment for people who answer cell phones in the movie theater? They should be forced to immediately leave the movie in session and go into a punishment movie including the likes of Prince Caspian, Beowulf, and White Chicks.

Choose a female bodyguard: I decided I want to pick a male bodyguard. And for that I would pick the Rock. He has lovely pecs.

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever seen in a movie? John Travolta in Hairspray. Your favorite genre (excluding "comedy" because that doesn't even count as film): I love foreign films a ton. Love them. Does that count as a genre?

Now wasn't that fun?

What if Facebook never existed?


I just asked myself that question. Or how about: What if Facebook shuts down? What if the internet networking business suddenly broke down and we all were left stranded in the middle of 1-15 with walking as our only mode of transportation? It would be like if God decided He didn't want to send down any more manna after however many years of plenty.
Ouch.


I shudder at this thought.


Some might call me a FB junkie. I will neither confirm nor deny that statement.


FB-ing has seriously changed the way we interact with each other. And I use the word "interact" loosely. I am fully aware of my guilt in everything I am about to say, but only because I'm trying to keep up in this fast-paced world we live in.


FB significantly decreases physical interaction. Which probably isn't very good considering we could all use a little more body love. (I'm doubting the use of my phrase body love but I'll keep it in). As much fun as 'poking' is, it's got nothing on the hand to leg or hand to pec caress (two of my personal fave's) in the real world.


It is also changing the world of flirting. Warning: I am not an expert on this subject, but it seems as though flirting has been permanently distracted to FB. It reminds me of when texting first popped up and there became almost a standard post-date text (i.e. "I had a lot of fun tonight-can't wait til next time" or something more my style "Hey, next time I hope you take off your shirt...don't worry-I can help"). Now when you become interested in someone, or even if you're not, you stalk them like crazy on good ol' FB. You base your compatibilty on whether or not you have the same taste in music or movies; don't even get me started on how much I judge someone for having an obsessively long "About Me" section. Goo.


Point is, we think too much before we even meet the dude (or chick). This makes the first meeting awkward no matter what-if you have stuff in common you'll talk about it but there will probably be a moment in the date where it slips you checked out their pics on FB (and your date prob did the same) or if you weren't impressed with their FB profile you won't even give them much of a chance. Which sucks because a FB profile isn't really the best way to judge someone (as much as we think it does). We need to start meeting people in human-to-human settings to form a more natural opinion of another person. I know that profiles can be more accurate than an initial introduction, but whats the fun in reading about another person? We need to experience to fully appreciate. (Which might be why I like caressing so much)


FB-ing also opens the world up to our personal lives. Wall-to-wall? I've read conversations between two people I haven't even met. I have known events to transpire that I haven't been invited to. Sometimes this equals pain, but sometimes it equals countless hours of mindless entertainment like unto a favorite sitcom or movie.


It has introduced countless blessings to the world. Take "Who's got the biggest brain" for example. I always wondered if my abnormally large head contained an abnormally large brain-not true. Thanks FB, for answering that question.


I realize I sidetracked some in this post, but it all narrows down to this: I have a love-hate relationship with FB.


Or in the words of Rihanna "I hate how much I love you" FB.

Kiss on the Cheek? YES


I want a revolution on how we greet each other.

A handshake, a fist-pound, a high-five, a hug: all are acceptable ways to bask in seeing a friend no matter how much time has passed.

I want us to start kissing each other on the cheek. Its a lovely way to simply display your innocent affection for another person.

Richard Dawson did it all the time on the original Family Feud.

I've done it a few times, but I can't be the only one. I get embarassed easily.

So everyone, join me in this revolution. Share the love.

It might be embarassing, it might cause judgements from friends, but this is the truth:



I still love the Backstreet Boys.
