Take a look at the guy in this morning’s photo post. Tell me: have you ever seen a more beautiful young man? He has it all: ripped body, handsome facial features, nice skin and hair. This photo was also an amateur shot taken in someone’s bathroom. Imagine what a professional photographer could do with this guy. I wonder where he lives and what his name is? Aye-yi-yi ….
I’m up reasonably early, after spending last night by myself and watching a Danish film, In a Better World, a real snoozer in my opinion. The whole film’s about teaching young men to avoid violence when facing conflict — a nice idea. But the pacing of the film was too slow, the acting a bit on the wooden side.
I don’t know, maybe I’m just a cultural clod when it comes to these type films. I also refuse to watch “people getting shot movies” (think Vin Diesel), teen sex comedies, animated films, horror flicks and chick flicks. That leaves out about 90% of today’s films. Hollywood, can you please give us more films featuring real people facing everyday problems, with no one getting shot or raped? (Okay, Martin: stop railing ….)
It’s going to be a quiet Saturday for me. I’ll work on my novel, Dodging a Pearl, this morning. If the wind dies down (It’s been blowing steadily for five days now.) I’ll take a 16-mile bike ride. If not, I’ll run instead. I’ll have about thirty Christmas cards to write and address. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening. My boyfriend will be working again, so I’m at loose ends. Maybe I’ll visit our local, beach movie theater if they have something good showing.
Have a nice Saturday, everyone.
