I hate vinyl flooring. Especially the cheap shit. I need to replace this god-awful floor in our foyer and kitchen. Anytime Jen takes the kids away for the weekend I try to mop it with some heavy duty cleaner then with a varnish style cleaner and it still always looks like shit. It's like trying to row a boat with just oars upstream against heavy current. Yeah, you may eventually get to where you need to be, but maybe you ought to next time try a boat with a MOTOR on it.
I would need a floor buffer to do the job right, just don't have that kind of dough. Be better still if I had MAN SKILLS so I could replace the floor on my own.
It's way too easy to be a Steelers fan. A couple of weekends ago, I had NFL Network on in the background, and they were showing some AFC Championship game against the Broncos and the Steelers. I think it was 2005 season where the Steelers won their fifth of their Lombardi trophies, not sure...I was really getting into what I was doing, which was, ironically, mopping the kitchen floor. But it did get me thinking, it's SO easy to root for teams that seem to win a lot or are in the hunt a lot. I think I would have much more admiration on a gut level for, say...a die hard New Orleans Saints fan than a die hard Steelers fan.
Of course, my frustrations in what happens when the Ravens face the Steelers is probably not making that observation very subjective, I know.
I love 'Re-Boots' for the most part. I don't mean the computer kind, I mean when they decide to let a fresh set of eyes look at a franchise, in film or television, and give it a new spin based on more modern sensibilities. It is safe to say that the new Star Trek film can be added to the successful category alongside films like Batman Begins & Casino Royale, or television shows like Battlestar Galactica. It SO could have turned into the Sci-Fi Channel TV Series Flash Gordon or the hugely disappointing Superman Returns, but happily it did not. Saw it last weekend. Been meaning to actually write about it, it was that good, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
So if you haven't watched the season finale of LOST yet stop reading. LOST is now over for the year, and I am SUPER bummed that this coming Wednesday there is not going to be a new episode to look forward to. I gotta admit, that I am really not happy that next year is the final season. All the shows I have LOVED are gonna be gone after next year, and there will be no new ones to date that can pick up the slack of The Shield, BSG, LOST, The X-Files...it's a bleak TV landscape. Need some NEW SHOWS to get hooked on. I've heard good things about Fringe, maybe I will give that a look-see.
In the meantime, take a look-see at Elizabeth Mitchell. I hope somehow she makes it to next season. Even though they left everyone's fate sort of up in the air, they left hers the MOST up in the air as far as will she actually have survived all that hatch/bomb shit. I surely hope so...
