Went to see this today with Patrick. Just four words:

GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!

Take every Spielberg or Lucas movie you've ever seen, mix it up with random Alien movies and the X-Files TV show, add the comedic genius of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, run through a blender with the cutest, most profane, wise-guy little CGI son of a bitch alien you ever saw, and add a dash or three of Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, and Kristen Wiig, and you have "Paul".

It is the funniest goddamn movie I've seen in literally years. I laughed and hollered myself hoarse. Anyone who's even partially a geek will love this movie. There are sight gags, music gags, dialogue gags, casting gags, fuckin' character name gags... I need to see it again to catch what I missed this time around!

Seriously. Drop everything and go see this movie TOMORROW.

That is all.

The Rules:
1. People who have been tagged should write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.
2. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

To quote SBG, "Tough toenails, I ain't taggin' nobody. Do it if you want. :P"

1. 5 things that you can see without getting up:

The giant freakin' computer (full tower)
My monitor
My quart jug o' iced tea
Maggie (in my lap)
My Wacom Bamboo tablet

2. How do you style your hair?

BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHahahaaaaa.... I wash it, let it air dry, then brush it. Every now and then I might color it if I'm feeling frisky. Other than that, we have agreed to coexist. I don't have the patience or the essential girly nature to fiddle with it a lot.

3. What are you wearing now?

Grey tee-shirt with cat claw holes and red Mickey Mouse capri length pajama pants. And my glasses.

4. What's your occupation?

Disabled, but used to be a microbiologist, and then a network administrator. Now I'm trying to get back into drawing, painting, and other expressions of "artistic" natures using digital and traditional tools.

5. What do you hear right now?

Listening to the 70's hits channel on the TV, right now they're playing Bread, "It Don't Matter to Me". I had forgotten that the 70's weren't dominated by disco crap, but that there was some Pretty Damn Good Music from that decade...

6. Who was the last person you hugged?

Little Jacky Roo Roo. She said er-ROOO! so I let her go. Silly little fat black and white cat.

7. What is/was for dinner?

Left over chili from yesterday, which means it was twice as good today.

8. What did you do today?

Had lunch at Chick-Fil-A with Patrick, then went to see Paul. See my earlier post for my review. tl;dr: GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!

9. Dog person or cat person?

Cats. Catscatscats. And Horses.

10. What is your favorite TV show?

Don't really have one, there are several I like a lot. I think Southland is probably the best cop show on right now. 30 Rock. Community. Bill Maher. Ghost Hunters. Destination Truth. Ghost Adventures, because the guys are so fuckin' cheesy, but enthusiastic. The First 48. The Daily Show. The Colbert Report.

11. What was the last thing that you bought?

6 mylar pompoms to hang up in my garden as bird chasers, and a pocket sketchbook. Oh, and popcorn and drinks at the movie.

12. If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

England, and I'd take Patrick, and we'd do a grand tour of the entire country from the Orkney Islands north of Scotland down to the tip of Cornwall, and from Pembrokeshire west to Norfolk east. I'd like to spend a week in each county. Then we'd go over to Ireland and do her up proper, too.

13. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Pretty much doing the same thing as I am now. Hanging out on the internet, fighting with dunderheads on my wobblers maillists, but definitely further advanced in my art.

14. Where's your birthmark?

On my face -- it basically looks like a big freckle, and when I tan you can't see it anymore so it's never bothered me.

15. What are you doing this weekend?

Well, I saw Paul (SEE THIS MOVIE!!!) today, tomorrow I'll probably get started on tilling up my garden plots. Then I'll make pasta primavera for supper, because we're in the middle of a freakin' heat wave (it was 80 today!! In March!!!) and it's just too damn hot to cook.

16. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?

I used to play the organ and alto saxophone. I'd have loved to be able to really play piano, or the harp. Or guitar.

17. Who is the last person that sent you a text?

I don't do texts. Last email was from Jan Dabkowski, one of my wobbler friends.

18. Who are you missing right now?

Nobody, really.
