    How's Doris this morning?


    I have just discovered True Lies on TV, which is one of my more favourite dumb-but-enjoyable-and-quotable action flicks. (It's up there with The Long Kiss Goodnight, IMO ).

    Doris is fine. I'm a little kisses (<---pissed) because after three or four days of hardly eating, I got on the scale today and have lost NOTHING. What's the point of being unable to eat if you can't at least lose weight from it? Fucking thyroid. Grrrr.

    I like True Lies as well. Not sure I've ever seen Long kiss Goodnight.

    Autocorrect wants me to throw kisses every time I'm pissed off, I guess. Get ready to be smothered in love.

    Yeah, it sucks you don't at least get that silver-lining.

    My phone apparently doesn't know (and won't learn) any swear words, including "hell" which is utterly ridiculous. It does, however, assume that whenever you write the word "apple" it should be capitalised. Grrr. (FTR, my phone isn't an iPhone.)

    eta: At least it still thinks "trump" shouldn't be capitalized, so I forgive it a little bit.

    At least Arnie has some experience.

    I just really admire him for how full he's lived his life. I remember hearing that when he was younger, he decided he wanted to be a champion bodybuilder, a movie star, and a politician.

    And he ducking did it.

    A lot of people are half-expecting/hoping Dwayne Johnson will go into politics to complete the trifecta. How about President The Rock in 2020?

    Not that Dwayne Johnson isn't already a Renaissance man, what with his singing talents as well.

    Haha, I absolutely love the little detail of the binocular lens cracking (presumably because Arnie squeezes it so hard).

    *Helen slams Harry in the face with a hotel phone*

    Mr. BF: "Well, that'd break his jaw.

    *Helen smashes the back of Harry's head with said phone*

    Me: "Aaaaaaand now he's dead."

    I think I realised this scene was slightly problematic even when I was a 12 year old boy.

    That scene has many, many issues, only one of which is the improbability of Harry walking away without a scratch.

    I'm not going to push for another amateur President, but at least Johnson wouldn't actively be an asshole.
