So while my car was getting fixed for a brutal amount of money this past Saturday, I was at my brother Charles' place watching TV with his friend and roommate. I know the roomie is gay; I just know it! Heck, now I even doubt my own brother Charles for crying out loud! LOL! He just turned 40 yesterday by the way! WOW! Congrats on that milestone! Anyway, the gay roomie popped Vicky Cristina Barcelona into the DVD player, and we watched it. It was actually not bad at all! Javier Bardem is terrific and this is the role for which Penélope Cruz just won the Oscar last week and she is quite good in the film playing a really crazy ex-wife. I love the film's setting of course, that magical of all places I always dream of going to, but never have: España! Ah yes, glorious Native-American destroying conquistador imperial superpower Spain! Woody Allen is a pretty good writer and director, it's just too bad he is such a creep in his personal life.
Because I spent most of 2008 with low energy levels and hibernating every chance I got, due to depression I suppose, the last two weeks or so have been extraordinary in my life. I have new found energy levels I have not felt in a good while. I mean, I've already hit the gym three times since I went back, I wake up feeling refreshed/ready for the day, I'm eating quite heftily, and I just generally feel very good as of late. This is most remarkable and a true blessing for me, because I can't remember the last time I felt this alive! I mean, just read my dreary blog posts for most of last year, or even before for that matter! AHAHAHHHHA! I attribute all this recent vivaciousness to several factors: sleeping so much last year, taking good vitamins lately, and the apple cider vinegar shots for sure! This is my moment I suppose, and the physical shape I am about to get into is going to be so damn provocative and sensual, I just won't be able to keep all dem females and males off me! The shock on people's faces when I tell them my real age vs. what age I appear to be is quite flattering.
This is my new protein powder. I just had my first "shake" of this stuff, and it tastes like rich creamy disgusting eggnog! UGH! I'll have to find a way to mix it with something else other than water, but as long as I get it into my gut somehow, is all that really matters I suppose, especially after working out. Let's see how much I gain folks! I've already put on 7 lbs. alone from eating and the gym in just the last week! For someone eternally skinny like myself, this is tremendous! Here I come Mikey Phelps!
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is not the greatest movie, but it is cute/sweet in its own special little way and it happens to have a nice musical score. I liked it okay? So there!
