Mark Wahlberg

Who am I kidding? There's no one more famous than Katie Couric; she fucked me over.

So I finally saw Live Free or Die Hard, and I thought it was really well done. Justin Long was hilarious, the plot was solid (lacking the gapping holes that many summer blockbusters have), and Bruce just keeps looking better (oh man...he may be 52, but I would do him in a HEARTBEAT).

It wasn't perfect, but it was really good, especially as a sequel. They easily could have laid back and let the "Die Hard" name suck in viewers, but they made a better than decent film. Color me impressed.

Also, I love Colin Firth, but am I the only one who sees previews for The Last Legion and thinks "miscast!" I can see him as the guardian/protector, but not so much the warrior/General. Eh, I might see it anyway. Aishwarya Rai kicks ass.

It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting ideas, and thinking...

Hey literary friends!

I'm currently looking for book suggestions, preferably before Monday. (It's tax free week here in Florida, so all clothing, school supplies, and books under $50 are sales tax exempt...until Monday.)

I'm pretty open as to the style and content of said books. I much prefer it to NOT be in the first person, however, exceptions will be made.

My reading list this summer has consisted of:
- "Chasing Cezanne" by Peter Mayle
- "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" (also "Half-Blood Prince")
- "Pride & Prejudice"

Up next:
- "Water For Elephants" by Sara Gruen
- "No Way to Treat a First Lady" by Christopher Buckley
- "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass"

So...I'm pretty much up for anything, in any genre, for any age.
