Last Saturday was my birthday. Megan & I had breakfast. I got a massage. I watched TV, played with PugPuggy, met friends for drinks, saw Milk, saw Master Pancake's Christmas show and had an all-around awesome day. I received phone calls & text messages from out-of-state friends and family. It was great.
The Arizona Wildcats played twice on my birthday. They lost in basketball, but won in football. I would have preferred a sweep, but I will take it.
Last night, I hung out with more friends for a belated birthday party. We watched a movie. We laughed and talked. It was great.
Tomorrow, we leave for the holidays. I am excited to see my family. My sisters will be there. We are going to drink and be silly.

I have a big weekend planned. I am going to Master Pancake's Christmas Show tonight. Tomorrow is an Arizona Wildcat day. The basketball team plays at UNLV. The football team plays BYU in the Las Vegas bowl. I am going to meet some friends and drink some beer. Bear Down, Arizona.

Google Image Search: Word & Picture #120
George W. Bush can really duck a shoe. He has some lightening-fast reflexes. I was very impressed.
How is it possible this joker got off 2 shoes? Where was the secret service? I think the good ones were put on the "Obama Duty".
And who is in charge of press passes at Iraqi news conferences?
Kevin Costner would have never let 2 shoes get thrown at Whitney Houston. No way Clint Eastwood lets 2 shoes hit Jim Curley. (Name that movie)
Ving Rhames would take a bullet for Kevin Kline, but the secret service would not take a Sketcher for Bush?
In summary: 3 movie references, 2 shoes, 1 president with lightening-fast reflexes.

Holy crap, I loved this movie. It has immediately moved into my top 5 of the year.
Danny Boyle has a strange fascination with poop... I can respect that.
Well done. Really, really well done.
This was a movie weekend.
Megan and I watched the following DVDs:
Bottle Rocket - funky & fun. If you love Wes Anderson, you will love this. If you don't... stay away from this movie. I now understand my friend Sean's Halloween costume.
Step Brothers - this was funny.
Iron Man - still rocked on second viewing.
In the theater, we saw:
Slumdog Millionaire - I absolutely loved this movie. This is a top 6 of the year, in my opinion. It goes along side "Son of Rambow" and "Young @ Heart" and "The Fall" and "Dark Knight" and "Iron Man".
Synecdoche, New York - Every actor in this movie was brilliant. I had the same feeling towards this movie that I had towards last year's Bob Dylan movie entitled, "I'm Not There"... critics will love this, but I did not. By the end, my brain hurt.
I love movies.

"holidays in Tucson"
Megan and I returned from Tucson. I ate too much turkey. I played golf. I drank with Darrell and Jen.
Last night, I went to a UT basketball game with Mac and Long. UT won. I jogged after the game. I am still tired... that was almost 24 hours ago. Somebody (cough *Ben* cough) is fat!
I am still trying to get going on the blogging again. It has been slow-going this week.
