Whew, I'm really tired today, I did a lot of stuff (for me) yesterday.
I finally made it out the house (really!). I went to Borders, I just love wandering about and checking out all the temptations... But hey, I made it out without buying anything! I have certain suspicions that the Borders megacorporation called the CIA to order a hit on me, you know, put a couple of retributory bullets in my brain for not spending a cent in their store yet I still read tons of shit. I'm not scared though. Really, I'm not (can you tell I'm trying to convince myself, I'm really doing a shitty job of soothing my fraying nerves).
Anyways, I also went to a movie with some friends. We saw Blood Diamond, a movie starring a guy I used to call DiCrapio, but he was awesome in this movie, I got so much more respect for him than I did back in the day.
I was a bit worried Blood Diamond might get too preachy, or just be full of cliches... but overall the director did a great job, and the action was stellar, and like I said, DiCaprio was really great, and so were all the other actors. Of course there were some stupid parts, totally Hollywoodized, but hey, you'd have to be an idiot to not expect that sort of stuff!
I haven't seen The Departed, but it seems people are saying DiCaprio was even better in that flick.
