I Need a Screenwriter for My Life

Cory and I talked about going to see The Golden Compass this evening, but by the time I decided we might as well go, it was really too late. Jeffrey didn't want to see it, and Beth wasn't too interested since she's never read the book, and I just didn't get motivated to go. I do want to see it, because I enjoyed the books. I just didn't want to leave at the last minute and get there just in time to buy tickets, walk in, and hope there's someplace to sit. So we stayed home and watched Pirates of the Caribbean at World's End, since it just came out on DVD this week. Check out that website - it's very cool. Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie. We saw it twice in the theater, but there were things I had forgotten, and I still laughed out loud and cheered and all that good stuff.
Jack Sparrow: Gentlemen, I wash my hands of this weirdness.
As we were watching the movie, I caught myself thinking that I need a screenwriter. You watch these movies, and the people in the movies always know what to say. Whatever happens, they have a script. Something like that happens to me, not like anything like that ever happens to me, but just suppose, and it takes me until next week to figure out what I should have said. Or at least the car ride home.

Also, even though Orlando Bloom is totally and completely hot, 10 years is a long time.

  1. I do that all the time too! Thinking back over a situation, it's like...dang, I should have said THIS. Been there many times.

    I've heard all bad things about The Golden Compass movie. Was the book really good?
