Baby Boom
December 24th, 2006 | View Post
I am currently sitting on my couch on Christmas Eve, it's raining outside, freezing cold, and I've had a few glasses of wine. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing atmosphere.

If you ever find yourself in a similar setting and this movie comes on TV, do NOTTTTTTTTT turn it on. Baby Boom is terrible.

I tried to sit through it, but have finally had to turn it off. I never thought a movie could add so much stress to my life, but apparently it can. As if the kid crying every few minutes isn't annoying enough, Keaton can never seem to shut the hell up either. If you're not annoyed by her screaming and/or having multiple breakdowns on screen, you'll most certainly be annoyed by her inability to multitask when presented with the obstacles of a child. She's supposed to be this big shot business woman in the 80's and yet, for some reason, can't seem to find a good nanny in all of NYC to take care of the damn kid. For god sakes, 3 men and a baby worked it out - she can too.

I won't begin to suggest this has been a very articulate posting, but I assure you, this movie is awfully irritating. I would strongly suggest staying clear of it.
2006 Christmas Card
December 10th, 2006 | View Post
I was just sitting around the other day and thought, what better way to spend my time than to create a little holiday card for my friends and family. I didn't really have any ideas going into it, but after playing around with some colors and concepts for awhile, this is what ultimately came up.

My 2006 Christmas card complete with Tux

The perimeter of the card were supposed to be things of particular interest to me. Starting with the top left corner and working clockwise they are: Mountain Biking, Photography, Soccer, SCUBA Diving, Sushi, Irish, Acoustic Guitar, NASA, Motorcycles, Singing, Apple Laptop, Construction, Scrabble, New Zealand, Nintendo (Mario in this case), and Computers (AMD)
