He is the worst kind of person. You never hit kids. I don’t care who he is or how great of player he is. He deserves everything coming to him. In light of the whole scandal, I always have to make light of the situation. The NFL is falling apart. Rice is beating up women. Now we have Peterson feeling it’s okay to hit children. The line was crossed. No matter why he hit the kid, it isn’t right. There are better ways to raise your kids. I hope he gets what is coming to him,
Being on vacation is such a nice thing. You get to get away from work and all the things that bog you down. Whether you work banker hours or the world of retail, which is pretty much you surrendering all weekends, both jobs come with pain and suffering. There is one perk to working and that is vacation time. Ah, yes. Vacation. You have a week away to do what you wish. Maybe you plan on taking a trip out of state. Maybe you’re going to work on that kitchen remodel you promised your wife years ago or maybe you’ll do what I did. Maybe you’ll just sit around the house and binge on Netflix. I could have worked on so many other things. I could have worked on some short stories or edited a movie I promised I’d do two weeks ago. Both great ideas but I opted to be lazy and I sat on my ass (a case of beer within reach) and watched 21 movies during my week away from work.
Since I have 21 movies to list, I am going to break it up into a few separate posts. Here are the first 6 films I watched. These aren’t reviews. I am just sharing with you the list of movies I watched. You’re welcome to share a comment if you want. Enjoy the list.
One of my favorite movies is, Escape from L.A. I know it isn’t the greatest movie ever. It is a bit cheesy but I can ignore the cheese and look to what really mattered to me the whole movie. I loved the ending. I loved how Snake (Sorry, his name is Plissken) clicks a button on the whole world is sent right back in the dark ages. I was 16 at the time and any movie about the end of the world excited me. Movies like that still do. We have 2012, The Day After Tomorrow, The Knowing, The Walking Dead, etc…
But what if one of those movies becomes reality? What if all the end of the world movies I love so much weren’t Hollywood pictures but predictions of impending actual events that will happen. Cataclysmic events that when they do happen, will destroy the world we love and bring on the final days. Earth will no longer be the blue marble in the galaxy but left as a dark spot floating 92,960,000 miles from our Sun.
There a many things people worry about when driving. We have bad drivers, drunk drivers, construction, and we have deers. Those pesky animals find it okay to wander into the road and when you’re just trying to make it to work or your daughter’s dance recital, they gallop in your way. If you are lucky enough, you’ll avoid them and avoid having to pick deer fur and flesh from the grill of your car but if you’re not so lucky, you’ll be dealing with more than just that. Those effer’s will turn your high dollar toy into a piece of twisted metal. Maybe a bit extreme. I have been lucky enough to not have that happen to me. I did have a run in with a deer once. It knocked off my passenger mirror. It left me a bit shaken. I am sure the deer felt the same.
