I can't believe I actually got a post-it page. My browsernets has been INTERNUTS lately. About every 5 days my computer gets all choked up so I have to save all my tabs, close my browser, and log off. It is the most prehistoric thing ever. If I don't do this, then the internet just gets slower and slower and I eventually can do anything and I lose EVERYTHING. I don't know why this happens. Is it just Windows 7? I know I "should" be in a later version of Windows - I actually have Windows 10 - but later versions are even more spy-riddled.

I have a severe migraine. So, this is day 5 of my heavy relapse. Because I forced myself to go to the store yesterday, on day 4, I am struggling today. Never try to drink away a migraine - it doesn't work - which is why I am trying to do it. You have no idea how sick I get. I need to post a refresher course on my CFS.

Yesterday, there were literally a dozen females taking an interest in me. Maybe more. Meanwhile, I was plagued by CFS and just wanting to survive with grace. Seriously, I'd rather get banged by a man, if it had to come down to it, because that way I wouldn't have to DO anything. One female was a manager at Walmart. OMG - Walmart was so fucking lame yesterday, filled with hyper-living-dead people. I had about the worst time of my life - and then I lost my wallet. But I shouldn't post about this kind of crap anymore - I should spend my time planning HOW TO GET AWAY FROM HERE!!! Oh, yeah, so the Walmart manager kinda looked like Sheryl Crow, whom I don't find sexually attractive. But, dude, compared to all the idiots in this town, a Walmart manager is at least SOMETHING. God my head hurts.

Um - right... OK, it is crazy that Tom Petty is dead. I never really thought of him as a baby boomer, because his music always had a punk/metal attitude - and was also eternally good pop. I mean, he was one of the best. He had a good album out, and had just completed a tour. He was buddies with THE MAN. But. There is irony in everything. So, I asked myself, "What is the irony in this one?"

You could have predicted it from the beginning. "Tom Petty and the Heart-Breakers." He died of a heart attack.

Now, I've got two questions...

Popcorn is great, and always non-GMO. But, when you pick one piece of popcorn.... What is that called? One piece of popcorn? Is there even a name for it? It's really bothering me, lol...

Next question is this: In every American version I have seen, people going over the Niagara Falls always go from right to left. The water moves from the right, falls, and goes away to the left. So, can anyone please explain to me WHY this is, because, south of the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence, THE WATER ACTUALLY RUNS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT? I mean, really. This is strange.

I watched Matchstick Men, which got great reviews but was a box-office bomb. It was a great movie... Nicolas Cage was not "annoying" but actually gave his best performance - as a person with Tourettes Syndrome and OCD. The relaxing, Frank Sinatra music was fantastic. So, what was my problem with it? This great movie turned out to be a completely crap movie because IT WAS COMPLETELY IMPLAUSIBLE. THAT is why the public turned it down. This gives me some insight into movie critics: they are more about flash than they are about logic or psychological reality.

I cannot give you the plot, because it would ruin it for you. I still think this is a must-see movie. If you like any of the following movies, then you will like this one..

The Sting
The Road Within
Hard Candy
Seven Psychopaths
Mad Men / La La Land

Careful, those ladies are preying on your weaknesses. If you're feeling vulnerable and suddenly you're getting extra attention BEWARE.

Even though they're puffed, I still call them kernels. I've heard other people do that too, so maybe it's a thing.

I'm on my phone, so I'm not going to look at a map right now, but maybe there's a small twist in the river right before the falls.

Your are are so fucking wise oh fucking wise one.

Seriously. I get on the phone to arrange the next bus ride, and I am all exhausted and I have a really low voice and everyone is like, "IT'S HIM!"

idk about popcorn but we should ask the so-called Indians yepppers.... They the fuck invented it right?

That twist in the river needs to be explained to every voter or else we need to invade canada again. Excuse me what is wrong with any part of my logic.

Hey there, and thanks. You made me laugh.

So, I am now in a 20,000 town in Northern Illinois, which I am hating more and more, but I claim Madison, WI, as my true home. Beyond that, I originated from Australia. I am a critic of American society, all for my mother country, lol. So long as I am stuck here against my will, I guess I am luvin it.

Thanks again(!)

Matchstick Men is great. I love Sam Rockwell's performances. I agree its implausible because how would his ex wife not have been more like uhhh? I haven't watched it in maybe five or so years but I remember finding that part the most implausible.

I have to tell you, I have discovered three or four new things because of you, including mother! Just now, I looked up Sam Rockwell... until now, I never realised that he played Zephod Beeblebrox in the 2005 "Hitchhikers Guide."

I never thought of Rockwell's performance as being great in this movie, so I'll have to watch it again for this. I actually own the DVD - I recently found it at Goodwill's. I did notice that Rockwell 'surprisingly' ends up as the bad guy in this movie, as he did in "Seven Psychopaths".

That part where the main character talks to his wife felt like it was tacked on half-heartedly. And I think the reason why is because the writers/directors realised that they were using it to BS the audience. I had to think back on the movie and ask myself if any of it could have happened in reality, and none of it could. And the girl turns out to be some kind of super-genius (who was ALSO part of the scam) just like the girl in "Hard Candy." I get angry when a movie tries to pull something like this on me. Another such movie is, "Logan Lucky."

BUT - I still really liked the movie for other reasons!

I highly recommend the movie Moon. I think it's one of Sam Rockwells best roles and that if it was more well known it would've won him some awards. Snow Angels is another great film he's done in which he plays a recovering alcoholic.

OK, thanks. I will try to remember these.

I just saw him in, "Cowboys and Aliens." He does have a good range of acting ability.
