You've been warned.

Do not try Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr. Pepper.

Unless of course you like the taste of a liquified NutraSweet Tootsie Roll.

In which case... Freak.

It's uncanny. It looks just like me!

You can have one too.

"We're Texas Rangers! Our jurisdiction is wherever we happen to be!"

I haven't really been watching "Comanche Moon". I've read Lonesome Dove probably 50 times, and have seen the movie nearly that many times. But I still haven't gotten around to reading the prequels Dead Man's Walk and Comanche Moon. I briefly attempted the sequel, Streets of Laredo, but it was dismal.

So anyway, I stopped to watch for a few minutes tonight and got drawn in for a while. The reviews I read weren't very good, and I mostly agree. The actors just aren't the same caliber as the original. I was a little bit put off by the casting of Steve Zahn as Gus McCrae (you know, one of the most beloved characters in American literature?). Zahn always comes off as so goofy in his films. Though I know Gus is supposed to be somewhat of a joker, it just didn't seem like the right choice. But I've actually been surprised at how captivating he is. That is one masterful Duvall impression. Now I might have to watch the whole damn thing... Except then I'd have to put up with Kilmer. And that's asking a bit much.

Helena Bonham Carter = Crazy

But in an awesome way, not in a Britney way.

cleaning house

So, not to brag or anything, but I get to throw all of this stuff away.

(How I have managed to amass this much stuff is a whole nother entry. Seriously, how many contact lens cases does one person need?)

This Friday afternoon, I'm getting Lasik! And by Saturday, I should be able to drive without glasses. I've been legally required to drive with corrective lenses since I was 16 years-old. So this is a little exciting.

One down side, I won't be able to wear eye makeup for at least a week, which to me, is way scarier than having my cornea sliced open with a lazer. And hopefully, when it's all said and done, I'll love my new eyes. Because I'll be paying them off for the next five years. Although just out of curiosity, what happens if you default on your Lasik financing? Do they take their 20/20 back?
