I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin...

The Olympics are over which means the NHL has resumed! Yay! Last night the only game was Detroit vs Colorado. As much as I don't care for Colorado, I really wanted them to win. Detroit and Dallas were tied in points but a win would have put them over us and moved them into eighth place in the Western Conference standings. Come playoff time, the top eight teams for each conference play in the playoffs. The rest go home for the season. So since Detroit had to go and win last night, they got their two points and are now in eighth place. Nice for them. It was a pretty good game though and I'll admit, Lidstrom's goal was pretty as hell. Anyway, the Stars play LA tonight. Hopefully they win. They were on a hot streak before the Olympic break so hopefully they'll see fit to continue on with that for the rest of the season and actually make it into the playoffs. Go Stars!

I am SO FUCKING EXCITED that Alice In Wonderland comes out this weekend. I love Alice In Wonderland. It always seemed so strange and wonderful to me and has intrigued me since I was a little kid. I got excited when I found out they were making the movie. Then when I found out Tim Burton would be directing it, well that just got my metaphoric cock hard. I LOVE Tim Burton's work. The cast doesn't hurt either since one of my favorite actors is in there plus a few others that I think are pretty good. We (the boyfriend and I) rarely actually go to the movie theater to see anything. I don't like being around all the obnoxious people who insist on texting, talking and doing other things through the movie. I'm the sit down, shut up and watch the movie type. Blah blah blah. So, we rarely go and just opt to wait for it to come out on DVD. Unless it's something we both really want to see, then generally, we still wait until it's out on DVD, lol. Going to movies the night they come out? I can count on one hand how many time that's happened. And after we go see Alice on Friday, I'll still be able to count on one hand how many times that's happened. ;)

So, something that amuses me about people? Not in a really funny way that makes me smile and feel happy but in a very ironic sort of way that makes me shake my head and wonder what the fuck goes through people's minds. Of course, I don't mean all people and I don't really mean anyone in specific either. I’m just talking a general observation of something I’ve noticed over the years about a lot of people. Thankfully, I don’t know a lot of people that do this but I do know some. Anyway, if someone they don't really know or someone they don't really like does something they perceive to be wrong; they jump that person's shit over it. Or, they talk shit to other people about it or they say nothing and just seethe about it quietly. Though, if a friend of theirs comes along and does that same wrong thing or another different thing they generally perceive as wrong; they'll defend it. Find a way to justify it and make it not such a bad thing even though had it been someone they didn‘t know or like, they would have been pissed over it. I don't think in black and white terms as a general rule. I get that more often than not, there are plenty of shades of gray filling in between the black and white. However, I just don't get that way of thinking, that way of justifying and warping things around. If you perceive something is wrong, then it's fucking wrong, no matter who is doing it.

Now, I'm going to go lay in bed with the Boyfriend and watch about 10 to 15 minutes of the movie UP. Or maybe more than that but probably not. Generally when I lay in bed and I'm tired (as I am now) I don't make it longer than 10 or 15 minutes with a movie playing. I pass right out and never even make it a quarter of the way through. Though last night, we watched RocknRolla and I managed to stay awake through the whole thing and then promptly passed the fuck out once it was over. At least I made it through the whole movie though. ;)

Happy Tuesday!

A new Tim Burton film with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter? WHAT ARE THE ODDS?????

......no, I kid. I'll probably wind up watching this one too because I love seeing Burton's visions. The man must be on some strong psychotropics, though, is all I can say.

CANNOT WAIT to see Alice this weekend either. I adore Tim Burton so... yeah, I agree on the stiffy!

My guess is that the wife and I will be seeing 'Alice in Wonderland' sometime this week....although, based on Tim Burton's past works, I expect this version to be a bit darker and not quite so 'Walt Disney' as most folks remember from the past.

I'm probably one of the few people who doesn't like Tim Burton's work. Not that it is bad, but it's just too strange for me.
