First thing Friday morning i found my long M.I.A remote care starter.
At lunch on friday a coworker walked into the office with a new Nintendo Wii system.
i asked where he got it, called the store, they had one left, wouldnt hold it, so i went on lunch drove and managed to buy the last one. its super coool, yeah it cost a good chunk of change, but i was not expecting to get it untill april ish, so thats sweet. its alot of fun.
saturday i just sat around the house and relaxed. then saturday night went to a chapters employee reunion movie night...where in 7 hours we only watched one movie. (*more on that later) we just sat around, ate snacks and chatted about everything, movies, music, work, chapters, customers, employees, etc.
at midnight a couple people left, then CFG, the host and myself stayed up for another 2 hours shooting the proverbial shit.
sunday was another day of notthing, playing video games (new and old), watching TV (macGyver anyone?)
So it was a good relaxed weekend, which i really needed.
as for the movie. it led toi a round about remeberance of the best musical advice, (stick with me here)
we watched Monty Pythons Quest for the holy grail. I like many people love this movie. its quirky, its stuipid, its strange, its funny and random.
but i have always had a peeve with it.
I find the first half is deffinetly the better part of the movie. i think the black knight should have been later in the movie, cause it is my highlight.
however, the ending of the movie has always pissed me off. now i KNOW that its supposed to be funny, the fact that it doesnt end because the king gets arrested by modern time police.
but i always felt ripped off, funny sort of, but i rarely make it to the end of the movie due to despising the ending. i realize the budget for this kind of movie is low but seriously....RIPPED OFF...
back to the reminder, i have always prefered the genious but much forgotton "Life of Brian"
Monty Pythons take on a mesia type character that is just the victim of bad circumstances.
and it has the best ending ever ...any movie that ends with the impending death of the hero to a song called Always look on the Bright side of life, gets an A+ in my school.
and its somthing that i try to live by, and everyone should, but it can be hard sometime,s especially when you have a day like i did on thursday.
for those who have not seen the movie, or could just use a good pick me up. you can view the ending Here:
or just read the lyrics
"always look on the bright side of life (whistle)"
