Some important news coming your way.
1) It snowed here and then the rain washed away the snow. So that happened.
2) I bought toilet paper, eggs, milk and 8 cans of soup (okay it was a special) in anticipation of said Snowpocalypse. Oh well, week’s not over yet.
3) Saw Deadpool on Sunday for Valentine’s Day. Because I could. In my honest opinion, like 3D glasses, The Hobbit running at 48 fps instead of the usual 24, and the cost of seeing a movie in IMAX, the opening credits, the jokes and the fourth wall breaks was funny for exactly ten minutes and then got tiresome. The story line: completely unmemorable. Ryan Reynolds can make fun of himself and his bad movie role choices (ahem, Green Lantern), but he’s just NOT that funny. Anyone remember Two Guys, One Girl and a Pizza Place or National Lampoon’s Van Wilder? Didn’t think so. The “stinger” at the end of the credits was funny–for exactly two seconds. I was the only one in the theater who got the reference, mostly because I’m old. But the movie made oodles of money. That’s what counts.
P.S. DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS TO THIS MOVIE. “R” stands for Rrrrrrrracy, Rrrreally violent and Rrrrrridiculous Thanksgiving Holiday Sex.
4) Oh yes, real news. The Goodreads giveaway for DARKEST HOUR ends after the February 17th. So if you would like a real printed book in your hands with my real signature inside the cover, shuck off that Deadpool hand-stank and sign up for the giveaway.
