I love the way you mention a manual car as if it's something special .

Only if you respect me in the morning, and hold my head out of the toilet.

You know what's stupid? I want to buy the 4th season of LOST, but even though I have a job in August, I don't have one now. So I'm looking for a summer job. Looking everywhere except fast food, I was looking on the Barnes and Nobles website. There's nowhere to apply.

There's no easy way for me to say this, but I really don't like any of you. In fact, I loathe you all.

I'll be helping my brother put his sailboat in the sea tomorrow.

(Today and yesterday were mostly spent programming.)

If you really did loathe us, then saying so would have been easy. Just sayin'.

We can just tease Gill with military vehicles. Since he is in KY he could really use an M-37 Dodge Power Wagon!

Maybe. It's all slightly confusing.

I hope everything went according to plan. Sailboats seem a lot more complicated to prepare for launching with all the wires and the mast and everything.

Yeah, you know a long pole or spar rising from the keel or deck of a ship and supporting the yards, booms and rigging.

That's what Merriam-Webster says anyway.

Why is it that in animations (such as the SW: Clone Wars, for example (having that example because it's not totally made for children)), things that would be seen as huge clichés and really horrible decisions by anybody (be it the director or a writer or an actor) are not only seen as more than acceptable, but actually are the industry standard? All these annoying little (or not so little) moves and lines and expressions and exaggerations that would be laughed at were they in an "actual" movie. And yet they're everywhere in many animations, and nobody thinks nothing of it. And I'm not even talking about anime or the likes, they're already super-hyper-way-beyond-the-border-of-annoying level in here, which is mainly the reason I cannot stand it, and I guess the fans love it just because it's so freaking annoying (and fake-cute (a term that works better in Finnish)) you want to, well, this: (not only pound your head to a wall, but beat yourself with The Frying pan at the same time).

And now someone would say "but they're not the same kind of movies", but then why do some try to be? They try to be serious flicks and yet they can't even manage to not fall into the most obvious trap there is, so obvious that it's not even a trap, but a hole on the ground with spikes in the bottom fenced in every direction by impenetrable warnings regarding the very hole, and yet the filmmakers insist on going straight in there, head first.



Not all animations, but most made with at least a slight monetary interest in mind.
