Kill Quentin 9:06 a.m. 2003-10-15
Current Listening: Jesse by Gary Soto
The Bride: For those of you lucky enough to leave with your lives, go! But leave your limbs! They belong to me!
Copperhead: So I suppose it's a little to late for an apology, huh?
Go-Go Yubari: You call that begging? You can beg better than that. -Kill Bill, Vol. 1
When will I learn that I don't really like Quentin Tarantino movies? I don't know what I was thinking last weekend. I just wanted to see a movie, and thought that I would wait to see Intolerable Cruelty with my husband. Maybe I thought it would be like Charlies Angels? The first one, I mean. Not to say that there weren't some beautiful scenes - like the pagoda in the snow. But there are also some really annoyingly violent scenes - like what happens at the end of the scene with the pagoda in the snow...
I also confess a bit of fascination with this new character, Go Go Yubari, played by Chiaki Kuriyama. I couldn't find much on her specifically, despite the Kill Bill website's claims that "at nineteen she is a full-fledged teen idol in Japan, with all that implies in terms of custom-produced record albums and coffee-table photo collections." I saw no websites about coffee-table phot collections. I did find some websites dedicated to the "2000 cult classic Battle Royale, a savage SF satire in which teams of school-uniformed teens are pitted against each other in lethal elimination games." Pretty awful, too!
I haven't done much fun other than that. I have a cold or some sinus thing and I am trying to resist going to the doctor. I didn't go to school on Monday, but managed to get both china cabinets loaded with silver and china. We acquired a lot of things when my husband's mother passed away. It's too much, really. I mean, who needs 5 pairs of silver or silver plate salt and pepper shakers? I have straightened some things, but more needs to be done!
I have not done anything in the way of grading. I need to do that - pronto! Grades are due this week.
I have done a lot of cooking! Go to my recipes link above and check it out! I have to say that the bread pudding - like most bread puddings - is better the second day, out of the refrigerator. I also have to say that my beef tongue burrito stuffing is awesome!
I also have added something to my photo album. My mother sent me some really funny cards "just for men" and they are in there! I think that most women (and men) will find them pretty funny. So, click on the Photo Album below and go to Funny Stuff. Coming soon, once I make the pictures small enough - more photos!
